Ever since alternative media sources made Hillary Clinton’s health a legitimate campaign issue, much of the mainstream media has been comically and instinctively rallying around her, smugly proclaiming that anyone who questions Her Highness’ physical or mental fitness for office to be a deranged rightwing conspiracy theorist.
What’s so amusing about the tactics of these self-important pundits is their willingness to do the exact same thing they demonize “fringe bloggers” of doing: playing doctor. Most of those rushing out to confidently ensure the public that everything is just fine and dandy with Hillary Clinton’s health lack any medical credentials. They’re just journalists and pundits who have decided Hillary is fine based on a two-page letter from internist Dr. Lisa Bardack. Does writing for the Washington Post or CNN make them the authority on Hillary Clinton’s health? Of course not.
Recalling Principal Dawn Hochsprung’s ‘Censored’ Post-Massacre Remarks

The Sandy Hook active shooter event of December 14, 2012 will be on showboated at next week’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Slated to speak is one Erica Lafferty Smegielski, “[t]he daughter of the elementary school principal who was slain in the Sandy Hook massacre,” the Connecticut Post reports.
Smegielski, the daughter of Dawn Hochsprung, will speak on Wednesday in Philadelphia as Democrats gather to nominate Hillary Clinton for president.
Readers may recall that Hochsprung gave a mysterious postmortem interview to the Newtown Bee minutes, presumably to associate editor Shannon Hicks, minutes after she was shot to death by Adam Lanza. As documented in the Sandy Hook Massacre Timeline,
“By killing the news Sandy Hook also kills ‘the regime’.”

Citizen journalist Robin from Honr.info and YouTube channel HowISee the World joins James this week to discuss the Orlando mass shooting event and other related “terrorist” narratives now commonplace in the corporate media terrain.
Robin’s online research and analysis of such poorly-understood incidents suggest how easy it should be for journalists and news organizations to examine the storylines presented by government agencies and spokespersons. Over the past several years he has made dozens of recorded calls to the very official parties whose feet need to be held to the fire, including the FBI and medical personnel, yet who are rarely held to account in any meaningful way by salaried reporters.

Are major Western news media complicit in the staging of so many recent and curious mass shooting and “terrorist attack” events? A simple answer would be “Yes,” if only because journalistic outlets collectively (and perhaps intentionally) fail to thoroughly interrogate these events and the potential motivations of individuals and institutions directly involved in such incidents, in particular those wielding unprecedented oversight with the most at stake–federal government and law enforcement agencies.
This is especially so because the storylines and evidence offered to demonstrate events including the Sandy Hook massacre, the Boston bombing, the Umpqua College “shooting,” the San Bernardino “terrorist attack” and most recently the Orlando nightclub shooting event are so weak and implausible that journalists and the public alike, with an Orwellian combination of cognitive dissonance and fear, automatically place even modest critical faculties in abeyance and defer to state officials taking turns at the podium.
Sometimes, however, the media’s deceit is much more forthright. For example, one may conclude that strong evidence along these lines exists if a major newspaper chain inadvertently publishes a detailed story on a mass shooting across its platforms from a major wire service before the event has transpired. This appears to be what Canada’s Postmedia did with an Associated Press story its outlets published one day before the San Bernardino incident allegedly took place. The posts, captured in screen shots here, have since been scrubbed from the company’s sites.
Independent artist, author and journalist Bernie Suarez joins the program to discuss the history and modern dynamics of mass media and propaganda as they relate to government intrigue. James and Bernie also consider how corporate news media function as essentially public relations conduits to present unusual occurrences such as 9/11 and many recent mass shooting events absent any real journalistic

(Original headline: Syria: NO, I will not support this revolting Amnesty International campaign!)
Translated from French by Tom Winter
“Why does this man let his people suffer so much? YES I support Amnesty International and I am making a 70 Franc donation. Amnesty International, Swiss section”
Sent in May 2016 to every household: We have just received from a Arret sur info reader this flyer calling for donations, distributed in letter boxes by Amnesty International’s Swiss Section. The flyer leaves no doubt about the outrageous political bias adopted by the NGO from the beginning of the war in Syria.
We denounce this misleading campaign that comes at the detriment of the Syrian people. The Syrian state is the only secular state in the region, and Amnesty is combatting it, seeking the overthrow of the Assad government. This means imposing on Syrians the destruction of their state, and bringing armed groups, who want to establish an Islamic state, to power, the groups supported by obscurantist regimes like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait.
Compelling imagery and analysis suggest corporate media’s direct participation in manufacture of Newtown shooting

(January 14, 2014)
There have been a number of pre-dated fundraisers, tributes, death reports, detailed articles, and even appearances of Sandy Hook in two major motion pictures. In fact, there have been so many of the pre-dated materials distributed, they’re literally uncountable, even with hundreds of links now inactive.
All of this clearly prepared material has brought thousands of people to realize how severely corrupt our world systems have become, but none of this may be as shocking as the number of pre-dated images that were once contained in the Associated Press images database. Not only are the images pre-dated, but those that are labeled “undated” have clearly matching dates with other photos.
REALITY CHECK: Can we get real for 2 minutes?
The 2016 Presidential Race has nothing to do with the struggle to repair this broken, malignant and disease-ridden country. You know it, I know it, and I’m about to prove it to most peoples’ satisfaction.

My prediction of how people would react to the 2016 Presidential Race heating up has been very accurate. I don’t usually make such predictions, however, this year I’ve been more interested in gauging our prospects for achieving a peaceful resolution to certain key problems than ever before. Rather than looking at political promises, key events or various forecasts, I’ve been looking more carefully at the demographics of Americans to estimate those prospects.
The system is so irreparably ruined by corruption, criminality and “cronyism” that only an intervention by people on the outside can bring it to heel. The 2016 election will likely unfold according to the script while Americans of all political persuasions are relegated to spectators. Which Americans have the best strategy to regain control, and as the cliché says, “take our country back?” The following is one, possible breakdown of the American citizenry and body politic. This is what we have to deal with; the reality as I see it.

The mainstream media propaganda machine struck with a forceful blow at presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on April 5 for opposing lawsuits brought by Sandy Hook families against weapons manufacturers in response to the December 14, 2012 massacre event (e.g. here, here, here, here, here, here, and here). See the size of the letters in the New York Daily News front cover attack. The size of the letters and the headline alone tells a powerful story of the depth and the over-the-top application of the State propaganda we live in today.
So not only is no one allowed to question Sandy Hook despite the fact that no part of the event contains any 3-dimensional reality to it and is instead delivered by the words coming out of the mouths of the participants, but even the notion of slowing down the flow of post-Sandy Hook cash flow or questioning the gun control agenda is being attacked as “shameful” by the New York Daily News and the rest of the treasonous CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) driven mainstream media. Yes they do this all the time. The target this time was presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Hundreds of emergency workers from four countries took part in Europe’s largest disaster drill that came weeks before the recent terror attack.
Seven Tube carriages have been partially buried under thousands of tonnes of rubble that poured into a station when a building collapsed.
Hundreds of ‘dead’ bodies were today strewn across the horrifying scene of carnage, the victims of this major disaster.
These are the traumatic sights that scores of emergency service were faced with as they took part in the first day of Europe’s largest-ever disaster response training exercise.
On this edition James speaks with philosopher and esotericist Neil Kramer on the relationships between empire, education, and the modern psyche. Kramer argues that the world is at an important crossroads where people increasingly question their misplaced faith in traditional institutions and the experiences they seek to govern. Today human beings are commensurately discovering their own power as individuals, and using this empowerment to question the collectivist ideas and attitudes fostered by today’s mass media and schooling.
Neil Kramer’s research, writing and multimedia endeavors focus on spirituality, mysticism, and metaphysics. He explores the relationship between inner development and the many social and cultural factors that influence our everyday lives. Kramer emphasizes embracing truth and confronting the negative in a journey to transform self.
