UC Berkeley Cancels Palestine Class Midway Through Term

By John K. Wilson
Academe Blog

Suspending a course in the middle of a semester is one of the most serious actions a university can take. On Sept. 13, Dean Carla Hesse of the University of California at Berkeley did exactly that to a student-taught DeCal class about Palestine.

DeCal stands for Democratic Education at Cal, an old-fashioned tradition where undergraduate students teach 1 or 2 unit courses, pass/fail, to their peers. The instructors, called facilitators, plan their own courses, which must be approved by a faculty committee and the chair of a department.

In a statement, Paul Hadweh, the student facilitator, declared:

I complied with all policies and procedures required for creating the course. The course was vetted and fully supported by the faculty advisor, the department chair, and the Academic Senate’s Committee on Courses of Instruction (COCI).

The university suspended the course without consulting me, the faculty sponsor, the chair of the department, or the Academic Senate’s COCI, which is responsible for approving all UC Berkeley Courses. The university did not contact us to discuss concerns prior to suspending our course.

Trump: Only Explosives Could Have Brought Down World Trade Towers

Major media ‘memory hole’ US presidential candidate’s expert opinion on WTC

Of special note on this September 11, 2001 interview with Donald Trump is the Republican presidential candidate’s important remark concerning how the World Trade Center Twin Towers were likely brought down–through controlled demolition.

Inadvertent Truther Trump

This prescient observation is being intentionally overlooked by major media in the wake of 9/11’s fifteenth anniversary. Many of these ‘news’ outlets chose instead to single out a brief and arguably unrelated comment by Trump early on in the exchange–‘bragged’ that he ‘owned the tallest building’ in Manhattan next to the WTC– while failing to recognize and highlight his much more important expert opinion concerning the World Trade Center’s fate alongside those of its inhabitants.

9/11: An Online Compendium of Research and Analysis

Robert David Steele
Phi Beta Iota

It is not possible to be a fully effective professional if you are not able to question official narratives and blatant lies told by official personalities. It is now known that Dick Cheney “took over” the 9/11 plot hatched by the Zionist government of Israel (not to be confused with the sane loyal Jews everywhere including Israel).

It is now known that in the aftermath of 9/11 the US Constitution was trashed and 935 now-documented lies were told to justify elective wars and a swath of destruction running from Afghanistan through the Middle East and North Africa down to Somalia, Niger, and Nigeria.

Saudi Arabia is guilty of paying the Clinton Foundation so as to buy US support for regime change in Syria and Yemen because Saudi Arabia wants two oil pipelines to the sea that go around Iranian control of the Gulf. Saudi Arabia is also guilty of funding Wahabbism, a fundamentalist version of Islam that is not terrorism per se, but creates a massive pool of useful idiots more easily enticed into terrorism and subversion. Saudi Arabia is not to blame for 9/11 — they merely provided passports for the patsies whose US visas were personally approved by John Brennan, then CIA Chief of Station in Saudi Arabia, coincident with Buzzy Krongard being at CIA to oversee the Gold War against Russia that was taken to a new level by the movement on 9/11 of $250 billion from the covert off the books side of the house to the overt banking system.

George Carlin’s Foreknowledge of 9/11? “Lost” Comedy Special Aired for Anniversary of Attacks

by Vivian Lee

The US news media is gearing up for the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks with a diverse and perverse set of offerings to bolster the official story. None is stranger than the release of “I Kinda Like It When A Lotta People Die,” which George Carlin recorded on September 9-10, 2001, for an HBO special that would have been aired in November but was shelved after the attacks – since it “seemed in bad taste after nearly 3,000 people were killed a day later,” according to a story in the New York Times this week.[1]

Carlin, the brilliant comedian and brutally honest social critic, died at the age of 71 in 2008; he was posthumously awarded the Kennedy Center’s 2008 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.[2] Despite Carlin’s anti-establishment bent, you don’t get big awards without friends in high places.

“I Kinda Like It” is set for release on September 16, 2016, and can be pre-ordered at amazon or GeorgeCarlin.com (download, CD, or vinyl). But for those who can’t wait, it has been available on SiriusXM, Channel 400 (Carlin’s Corner) since September 1.[3] Mocking the public’s fascination with disaster scenarios, Carlin says he enjoys mass destructions where lots of people die – such as tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, tidal waves, volcanoes, monsoons, forest fires, avalanches, heat waves, famines, and, his favorite disaster, “an asteroid.”

“I’m always rootin’ for a really high death toll,” he says. “That’s why I like the natural disasters … that no one can control.” According to Carlin, “the world is one big theatrical production.” In the face of mass tragedy, “folks, you gotta have fun.”[4]

Defining Domestic Lone Wolf Terrorism

Section 802 of PATRIOT Act and “Domestic Terrorism”

Radicalization via “conspiracy theories” have inevitably led to violence and signal potential acts of domestic terrorism. This is how Google, Interpol and the Las Vegas police have interpreted the social media activities of 24-year-old Bryce Cuellar.

Barrett Anthology Thumbs Nose at Contradictory Orlando Narratives

The speed is admirable. Barely seven weeks after the murky events of June 12th in Florida’s Pulse gay nightclub, Kevin Barrett’s latest instant false flag exposé is already providing valuable insights and perspectives. In fact, Orlando False Flag: The Clash of Histories has just gone up for sale at amazon.com and is also available at createspace.

The speed is important because the urgency is great. False flag operations remain the prime drivers of the maximum illusion “war on terror” and ongoing aggressive actions against Russia, China, Syria and others by the imperial American Empire, its allies and vassals—all masked as “the West.” World War III is not out of the question. The path to unimaginable destruction is being paved with the most sophisticated and far-reaching fear campaign of all time, founded on the destabilizing delusion of the “extremist jihadist threat.”

As early as the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, false flag events have unfailingly enabled “rule by crisis.” The pulpits of the Church of England were the media of that day, spreading the King James Version of the event. In his acceptance speech of July 21st Donald Trump followed history’s script. As the July 22nd headline in the Toronto Star reported: “For a United States ‘in crisis,’ Trump presents himself as the only solution.” He would have had a much harder time selling his odious self that way, without the “war on terror,” without Nice, without San Bernardino, without a “terror plot” uncovered at the Rio Olympics. And without Orlando.

14 Soldiers Photographed Before, During and After War

H/t People’s Trust Toronto

Filmmaker Lalange Snow photographed and interviewed 14 members of 1st Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland before they were sent to Afghanistan, after three months’ service, and mere days after coming back home from their deployment.

The series, titled “We Are The Not Dead,” is meant to expose how war changes a person, both psychologically and physically, the trauma literally written on their faces.

War changes people, and the soldiers’ faces show a glimpse of the toll that fighting in Afghanistan takes on the troops.

Donald Trump: A Political Terrorist?

Submitted by Sajjad Shaukat

Some western psychiatrists believe that many terrorists have had a difficult childhood producing narcissistic wounds, resulting in “projecting the hated parts of the self onto the outside world”. According to another similar reasoning, “The desire to destroy the establishment is driven by the terrorist’s search for identity.” This dynamic could result in operatives taking unauthorized vengeance against society for their own reasons unrelated to the group’s cause; such acts are equivalent to military officers making politically unauthorized use of their weapons.

trump-terror

In his book, “The Readiness to Kill and Die: Suicidal Terrorism in the Middle East,” a professor of psychology, Ariel Merari who provides a comprehensive analysis of suicide attacks and terrorism by showing how personality characteristics interact with group pressure and public atmosphere, points out,

“Most suicide terrorist attacks are carried out by sub-state groups, whether organized as terrorist groups or as self-starter cells…this is because it is easier for groups to transform susceptible individuals into terrorists by radicalizing, recruiting, indoctrinating and training them to become suicide bombers and then videotaping their commitment to martyrdom. Such groups receive their oxygen from religions and societies that glorify martyrdom into an afterlife in paradise.”

NICE, France — A long white truck ran into a crowd of people in Nice, France, on Bastille Day, killing “probably” 30 people and injuring 100 more, a local prefecture official told CNN.

Fox News says Sky News is reporting 60 are dead.

The driver of the truck that drove into a crowd in Nice was shot dead by police, Pierre-Henry Brandet, a spokesman for the French Interior Minister, tells CNN.

One witness, an American who was about 15 feet from the truck, said the driver pointed his tractor trailer into the crowd, mowing bodies over.

All Our Children Are Now FBI Terrorism Suspects

Under Federal Criteria Memory Hole’s “Preoccupation With Press Coverage of Terrorist Attacks” May Constitute “Dangerous Speech”

Thomas S. Neuberger
The Rutherford Institute
(April 7, 2016)

In July 2015, I reported on and analyzed the FBI’s Communities Against Terrorism Program and concluded that it made every adult citizen a terrorism suspect. In January 2016, the FBI announced that it wants to make every high school teacher, administrator and student in America a spy to report to it or local State police suspicious words or activity by any FBI-ShadedSealteenager attending our schools. The FBI was not satisfied with its 2012 Communities Against Terrorism Program which asks our neighbors to read any of 25 widely circulated posters and then to report us if we act in certain suspicious ways. Now the FBI has widened its net to over 15 million teenagers in our high schools.

As I explained previously, the dangerous speech which the FBI wanted our neighbors to report included, for example, (1) posting anti-government or environmental slogans, banners, or signs that imply violence; (2) spraying anti-government graffiti; (3) downloading material of an extreme or radical nature with violent themes, or preoccupation with press coverage of terrorist attacks; (4) making unusual anti‑U.S. comments; or (5) making extreme racist or religious statements coupled with sentiments which appear to condone violence. As can be seen from this list of overbroad, vague and legally protected activities or speech which the FBI claims are red flags for terrorism, the FBI has little concern for our Bill of Rights, such as the right to speak freely or to read what we want.[Emphasis added.-Ed.]
