Alan Dershowitz: Apologist For Inhumanity

Alan Dershowitz is a professor of law at Harvard University, an apologist for the Israel lobby in the US and a self-confessed "big mouth". He is also a man completely in thrall to the NeoCon agenda who takes every opportunity to promote the extremist warmongering disguised as "freedom and democracy" that has come to define the reign of the Bush administration, which, we should remember, entered the white house in 2000 in much the same way as other great dictatorships of history - without the consent of a majority of the population

Racism, Not Defence, At the Heart Of Israeli Politics

Racist Israelis
Last week, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert came out and publicly stated something that every unbiased observer of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has privately known for many years: that, to the Israeli oligarchs, the life of an Israeli citizen is "more important" than that of a Palestinian.

Spiritual Predator: Prem Rawat AKA Maharaji

Prem Rawat, the spiritual predator known as Guru Maharaj Ji, Maharaji, the Lord the the Universe, and the Perfect Master, has been feeding off of the ignorance and gullibility of spiritual seekers for forty years. This article looks at how Prem Rawat twists the real meaning of esoteric concepts such as "Knowledge", combines it with four yoga techniques that are able of inducing "ecstatic" states in certain people, and uses the experience to reinforce a subjective view of oneself and the world that he passes off as "Knowledge", all the while binding the individuals to the "Master" by claiming that he alone can offer this experience.

The distortions of Prem Rawat are typical of many gurus of the New Age. They serve to keep the genuine seeker trapped in a spiritual dead end.

The Not So Strange Case of Philip Merrill

Image

Phillip Merril
Philip Merrill was the 71 year old president and CEO of Capital-Gazette Communications, Inc., which publishes Washingtonian magazine, the Annapolis Capital, and five other Maryland newspapers.

On June 10th 2006, Mr Merrill's wife reported him missing when he failed to return from a days sailing in his boat, 'the Merrilly', on Chesapeake bay. The following day, the Merrilly was found floating 25 miles off the coast with its engine running. The first man on the scene reported that the boat was empty and that there was evidence of blood on the deck. Mr Merrill's body was subsequently found floating in Chesapeake bay on June 19th. Police said that he had apparently died of a shotgun blast to the head, and deemed his death a suicide even before an autopsy has returned its findings and despite the fact that Mr Merrill's body was found with an anchor tied to his feet.

SOTT Podcast: Counter-Intelligence and the 9/11 Movement - Part 4

SOTT Podcast Logo
In Part 4 of this discussion, we look at the links between different disinformation sites and see how they serve to reinforce each other, even when they appear to be antagonistic. Such in-fighting can convince readers that the sites are really digging to find the truth. How do Jeff Rense, Mike Rivero of What Really Happened, Oil Empire, TV News Lies, Mike Ruppert, and others fit into a well-orchestrated campaign on the part of the pathocracy to limit your thinking and keep you within the fold -- even while you believe you are learning the truth?

SOTT Podcast: Counter-Intelligence and the 9/11 Movement - Part 3

SOTT Podcast Logo
We continue our discussion of the "playing" of John Kaminski by people close to him in order to marginalize him and to effectively silence one of the most eloquent voices in the United States today. A passionate writer with a sincere heart, John's emotions were used to push him into writing stories that would drive him to the fringe. We also look at how the disinformation campaign is used to create web sites for every particular stripe of opposition. Billions of dollars are used to control your minds. You need to know how it works.
