Paris Attacks: “Impromptu” Bataclan Footage Product of Professionals 9

Today the iPhone and similar personal electronic devices allow everyday people to take high-quality video and photos in an instant. Yet two key videos that have emerged from the November 13, 2015 Paris terror events were shot by established professionals–one of whom travelled from Russia on the Paris1morning November 13 to be quartered in unusually close proximity to the rear exit of the Bataclan Theatre, where he or his his neighbor, a professional journalist, captured footage of shooting victims and survivors being dragged from the building and hanging from the facility’s upstairs windows.

Russian photographer Victor Boyko is a well-connected and established professional photographer, as his portfolio suggests. His clients include some of the world’s foremost entertainment and pop culture luminaries, including film director David Lynch, fashion designer Ralph Lauren, rock musician Lenny Kravitz, and singer/model/actress Paris Hilton.

Marshall Swing’s “Rush to Prediction” 21

MHB reader reconsiders prophetic analysis of Economist 2015 cover (here), Says message transcends mere economics

Submitted by Toni


It is argued by Marshall Swing that the January cover of The Economist magazine is a Revelation foretelling Certain Events, mockingly sent by the Elites to affirm the suspicions of those who can “read” the prophecy. Luckily, Swing can and the message is: Apocalypse arrives on October 23rd, 2015.

Economist2015I think there is both more and less to The Economist cover than Swing’s prophecy indicates. Less, in that Swing arrives at his thesis through coerced logic, a subject covered in Part Two. More, because the meaning that emanates from the cover collage is broader than the Prophet Swing allows.

My read of The Economist magazine cover is that it is an intellectual exercise in spoofing “conspiracy” culture by creating the appearance of a Message from the Elites. The editorial double-bind is that it then actually becomes a coded message from which elite intent can be deduced.


“Doom Porn” and Preparedness Go Mainstream, “Why Now?” 25


ABC’s Ted Koppel

For several years independent authors and alternative news media have sought to raise awareness of the possibility that an attack on one or more of America’s three antiquated electrical grids could result in the end of society as we know it. Now veteran broadcast journalist Ted Koppel has authored a book (or perhaps more accurately lent his name to a ghost-written book) on this very threat–indeed one that’s been looming for years, even as it remains almost completely ignored by US political leaders.

Lights Out: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath will be published by Penguin/Random House on October 27. “In this tour de force of investigative reporting,” the book’s description reads.

Ted Koppel reveals that a major cyberattack on America’s power grid is not only possible but likely, that it would be devastating, and that the United States is shockingly unprepared.


“10 dead in Oregon College shooting – Shooter dead” – Various Coverage 187

Eyewitness “heard shots” and “ran … got to my car and drove out.”

Timeline of October 1 Shooting from Oregon Live

How the FoxNews, CNN, MSNBC Covered the Oregon Shooting Before They Knew a Thing About It
Justin Peters

By now, we all know that there’s been another school shooting, this time at Umpqua Community College in southern Oregon. But for what seemed like a very long time this afternoon, that was all we knew. Further details were hard to come by, which posed a challenge to the many journalists who were tasked with reporting on what had—and hadn’t—happened. If you, like me, were toggling between the three main cable news networks this afternoon as they struggled to report the story in a virtual information void, you saw three different and distinct journalistic strategies at work: circumspection, observation, and pontification. Here’s what I glimpsed, and here’s where I saw it.



How to Spin Russia’s War on [Western-backed] Terror? 53

Just one day into Russia’s genuine “war on terror” corporate media have begun to claim, with almost no proof, that Russia is bombing innocent Syria civilians ( e.g. here, here and here). (One report from Reuters relies on a single Syrian Army defector ukpressas a source.) In fact, Syrians have been terrorized since 2011 in a vicious, US/NATO-backed covert regime change operation.

An accompanying tactic involves routine demonization of Vladimir Putin, the man who after all accurately hit upon the horrific nature of US foreign policy at the UN in September. “In fact, the Islamic State itself did not come out of nowhere,” the dreaded Russian head of state noted.

It was initially developed as a weapon against undesirable secular regimes … In these circumstances, it is hypocritical and irresponsible to make declarations about the threat of terrorism and at the same time turn a blind eye to the channels used to finance and support terrorists, including revenues from drug trafficking, the illegal oil trade and the arms trade.

On the eve of a potential vote in the United Nations to formally recognize Palestine we speak with freelance journalist and Palestinian rights activist Eva Bartlett. Bartlett lived in the Gaza Strip for three years between 2008 and 2013. She was also aboard the Dignity, one of five Free Gaza missions to successfully sail to the Strip in 2008.

Bartlett accompanied Palestinians in ambulances during the 2008/2009 Israeli attacks on Gaza, and documented Israel’s violent November 2012 campaign against Palestine from a central Gaza hospital. Bartlett has worked extensively with Gaza’s fishermen and farmers, accompanying them as they come under fire from the Israeli army.

Remarkable Coincidences in Developing Story, Recent News Article on Delta’s Active Shooter Exercises Deleted From Web

On Monday, September 14 Delta State University Professor Ethan Schmidt was allegedly shot by an unknown assailant who is Schmidtpresently on the loose. The story is being vigorously promoted by major news media vis-á-vis university and Mississippi state officials, and federal agencies including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Yet Delta State is also noted in the region for “active shooter exercises”–the most recent of which were held in late August of this year (see below news report). “We’ve had and hosted several active shooter trainings on campus,” notes Delta State Campus Police Chief Lynn Buford in a story appearing in the Bolivar Commercial that has since been deleted from its website.
