Blogger Stephen Lendman expelled from Facebook

Stephen Lendman, a blogger whom I have followed for some years, today announced that he has been expelled from Facebook for refusing to take down some of his posts. Here is what he says:

America’s deep state declared war on truth-telling, wanting views opposing its own censored or banished altogether.
Perhaps criminalizing writers like myself and others comes next. Google and Facebook are involved, perhaps other social media operations, conspiring with dark forces in Washington in flagrant violation of First Amendment rights.
Facebook informed me by email that I’m banished unless willing to “erase” articles I posted. I’m being asked to renounce truth-telling to gain access to my page – what I’ll never do, of course, not for Facebook or anyone else.

I won’t be censored. I’ll continue telling hard truths to the best of my ability.
Banishing me is Facebook’s shame – its CEO Mark Zukerberg and minions doing his bidding in cahoots with US dark forces, waging war on humanity at home and abroad.
Banishment from their site is my badge of honor. I wear it proudly!

 

Three days earlier, Lendman had commented on new limitations on free speech brought about by a measure signed by Mr. Obama on December 23rd (“Obama Signs Measure Opposing Speech and Media Freedoms“):

 

First Amendment rights are threatened like never before. Truth-telling on vital domestic and geopolitical issues is now considered fake news or Russian propaganda.
Targeting it is the hallmark of fascist dictatorship. Washington wants views contrary to its own suppressed, writers like myself and many others silenced.
When truth-tellers become enemies of the state, freedom no longer exists.
In early December, Congress overwhelmingly passed the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act as part of the annual National Defense Authorization Act – an unconstitutional measure against First Amendment freedoms.
On December 23, ahead of the Christmas holiday weekend, Obama signed it into law practically unnoticed. Along with approving bloated military spending, it establishes a Center for Information Analysis and Response – a de facto Ministry of Truth.
It aims to ferret out truth-telling on vital issues, suppress what everyone has a right to know, countering it with state-sponsored propaganda – along with perhaps targeting reliable independent sources of news, information and analysis for elimination.
Orwell once said in times of universal deceit, truth-telling is a revolutionary act. In America, it’s an endangered species, heading toward becoming criminalized, its disseminators risking prosecution, imprisonment or elimination by other means.
Obama governs under a police state apparatus, hardened throughout his tenure. When truth-telling becomes fake news or Russian propaganda, criminalizing it is a step closer to reality.
If the expulsion of Stephen Lendman from Facebook is an early example of the work of the “Center for Information Analysis and Response,” we are headed for very dangerous times indeed.

Obama’s Russian Sanctions Have Nothing to Do With Hacking: It’s About Syria, Not the FBI’s “Grizzly Lie” Report

American Everyman

by Scott Creighton

Obama’s “Grizzly Lie” report is indeed a grizzly step toward total war across the Middle East and perhaps the entire world.

Since Russia and Syria were finally able to oust Obama’s “moderate” terrorists from Aleppo and liberate the city from it’s 5-year-long regime change siege, the Russian ambassador to Syria has been murdered in cold blood, a Russian plane on route to Syria has mysteriously crashed into the Black Sea and now… President Peace Prize has evicted 35 Russian diplomats from U.S. soil and imposed some meaningless sanctions on a number of other Russian agencies and individuals. The claims are that we had nothing to do with the first two incidents and Obama’s actions against Russia are as “retaliation” against their supposed efforts at influencing our elections here in the states.

Of course, our intelligence agencies can’t very well take credit for killing ambassadors anymore than they…

Turkish MP: Chemical agent sarin smuggled from Turkey to ISIS (w/video)

OffGuardian

TurkishMPsarinISIS

Still from the video below.

RT reports:

Islamic State terrorists in Syria received all necessary materials to produce deadly sarin gas via Turkey, Turkish MP Eren Erdem has told RT, insisting there are grounds to believe a cover up has taken place.

The main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) member, Erdem, brought up the issue for public discussion in parliament last week, citing evidence from an abruptly-closed criminal case. He accused Ankara of failing to investigate Turkish supply routes used to provide terrorists with toxic sarin gas ingredients.

“There is data in this indictment. Chemical weapon materials are being brought to Turkey and being put together in Syria in camps of ISIS which was known as Iraqi Al Qaeda during that time,” Erdem told RT.

Sarin gas is a military-grade chemical that was used in a notorious attack on Ghouta and several other neighborhoods near the Syrian capital of…

U.S. May Be Salvaging Victory for Jihadists in Syria: How & Why

OffGuardian

Eric Zuesse, originally posted at strategic-culture.org

According to Britain’s Telegraph, in a recent report, the U.S. Tow antitank missiles that U.S. President Barack Obama sent in October to the Islamic Sunni fighters in Syria to use against the forces of the non-sectarian Shiite ruler there, Bashar al-Assad, have been so effective against Russia’s forces that Assad had invited in, that Russia — defending (upon Syria’s legal request) President Assad’s forces, and attacking the jihadists imported into Syria by the Saudis and the rest of the West — is now being forced to send into the battle Russia’s costly T-90 tanks, which are less vulnerable to America’s missiles. “The deployment of the T-90s appears to reflect Moscow’s frustration at this failure [‘getting sucked into a costly and possibly lengthy fight’], as well as concern over the damage inflicted by the rebels’ anti-tank missiles, themselves supplied by the regime’s arch-rivals in the Gulf states [specifically…

The CIA link to al-Qaeda in Syria

Source:

26.06.2013

The revelation is shocking, even for the CIA given the recent history of their modus operandi and even after we take into consideration the way the USA and its FUKUS Axis friends have behaved over the last few decades: there is a link between the al-Qaeda terrorists fighting in Syria and the USA’s CIA. Worse, the link between al-Qaeda and the CIA.

The allegation is made by the former al-Qaeda member Sheikh Nabil Naiim, who has spoken out on a video, claiming that the principal force fighting against President Bashar al-Assad in Syria, Jabhat al-Nusra, the one with strong links to al-Qaeda, is led by a CIA operative, Mohammed al-Jawlani.

Firstly, Sheikh Nabil Naiim should know. After all, he was the historic leader of the Islamist Jihadist movement in Egypt, he was leader of the Safwa al-Qaeda training camp; he met Osama bin Laden and he fought with al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in Sudan. He was involved in the assassination of Egyptian President Anwar al-Sadat and was imprisoned for a failed assassination attempt against President Hosni Mubarak. After the Mubarak government was ousted, Naiim renounced violence and is now setting the record straight, saying which of his former colleagues in violence and terrorism are on the CIA payroll.

In the video (link below), he states that “I personally believe that the leader of the Nusra Army (Mohammed al-Jawlani), who declared his support for Ayman al-Jawahiri, is a CIA operative in the Al Nusra”.

As for Zawahiri, he receives orders from the Americans to make a recording every six months, because he also is a US double agent. Hardly surprising, because who created the Mujaheddin movement in Pakistan and Afghanistan in the 1960s.1980s, to create a Jihadist movement which could be exported into the southern USSR? Why, the answer links in the connection between the Jihadist Madrassah and the CIA and we all know what the Mujaheddin morphed into: the Taleban.

“The USA has been allowing us to fight in Afghanistan for 18 years and have funded and supported us,” claims Naiim, who states to those duped into fighting against President al-Assad: “You are fighting the war in Syria on America’s behalf. Eventually you will be called terrorists and you will be killed or put in prison just like what happened to us after Afghanistan”.

And regarding Syria, he reveals that twenty-nine different FSA fighting groups have sworn allegiance to al-Qaeda, an FSA General recently confirmed that the FSA and al-Nusra are fighting together (as the west has been urging the terrorist groups to do); the CIA has been aiding other Gulf States to send arms to the Syrian rebels (contravening the terms of international law which stipulates clearly that it is illegal to become involved in an internal conflict in a sovereign nation).

He claims that FSA fighting groups are defecting to Jabhat al-Nusra, where they receive promises of good money; many rebel groups have vowed to fight against the United States of America once they have finished in Syria, they have been burning American flags, they have been burning Israeli flags; FSA groups sing songs glorifying al-Qaeda and acclaiming the 9/11 attacks.

And the revelations go on. Now, just who are the FUKUS Axis (France, UK, US) involved with in Syria and why do they continue to associate with groups like this? Surely the sensible thing to do would be to abandon them to their fate, which is to be exterminated as the filth they are, and start respecting international law, instead of siding with terrorists?

An Open Letter from His Eminence Metropolitan Philip to President Obama

(Originally published on The American Orthodox Institute Blog.)

September 6, 2013

President Barack Obama, The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC

Dear Mr. President:

We write to you with a heavy heart having heard the recent news of the attack on the ancient Christian city of Maaloula, Syria by the rebel forces. This city houses one of the oldest and most important monasteries, the Monastery of St. Thekla, which is considered a holy place by both Christians and Muslims.

This attack by the rebel forces, who are supported by the U.S. government, is an unspeakable act of terror, and speaks volumes to the viciousness of those rebel forces who seek to overthrow the Syrian government. Apparently there is nothing that is sacred to these people, and it is very disturbing that these same people are being supported by our government.

Mr. President, we appeal to your humanity, and compassion for people to halt consideration of any U.S military action against the Syrian government. This would be a deadly and costly action, and nothing can be gained by it. If indeed chemical weapons have been used (and this is still to be determined by the UN inspectors who recently returned from Syria), there is no compelling evidence which points to the use of these weapons by the Syrian government. On the contrary, there is some compelling evidence that the rebel forces had both the means and the will to launch such a heinous attack against innocent people, Christians and Muslims alike, who are all the children of God.

May our Lord and God guide you to find a peaceful solution which relies on negotiation and not bombs.

Sincerely

+Metropolitan PHILIP Saliba
Archbishop of New York and Metropolitan of All North America
