Processing Distortion with Peter B. Collins: The Israeli Propaganda Machine

Peter B. Collins presents Journalist Max Blumenthal

Framed around a new documentary that exposes the sophisticated Israeli message machine, and the influence of American media manipulator Frank Luntz in shaping perceptions of Israel as a victim, Max Blumenthal is candid, and critical. Blumenthal is one of many contributors to this important film. We also discuss the recent execution of a wounded, disabled Palestinian suspect by an Israeli medic, and how Netanyahu initially misjudged the Israeli public’s reaction. We talk about the Brooklyn debate between candidates Clinton and Sanders, and Blumenthal has strong remarks about each. And, he states that this is the first time he’s been asked about the attempted smears Blumenthal has been targeted for by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and other allies of Israel.

*Max Blumenthal is a journalist, and author of Goliath and The 51-Day War. Get more information on the documentary mentioned, The Occupation of the American Mind here.

    A little off topic here, but the comment about Sidney Blumenthal beginning his political career in Chicago 1960 peaked my interest, as it is common knowledge that Chicago 1960 was fixed in favor of Kennedy…

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/sidney-blumenthal-just-wanted-to-stay-in-the-conversation-now-hes-once-again-the-topic/2015/11/03/0119a8aa-7f45-11e5-beba-927fd8634498_story.html

    “He grew up on the North Side of Chicago, the oldest of three in a four-newspaper household, a bookish boy who could still punch out an older bully. John F. Kennedy’s 1960 campaign stop in Chicago was his entree into politics, he recalled in his 2003 memoir, “The Clinton Wars.” Blumenthal, as a 12-year-old Democratic volunteer, went door-to-door on Election Day to coax voters to the polls. Kennedy won Illinois by fewer than 9,000 votes, a razor-thin margin disputed by Republicans, and young Sidney felt like he’d contributed. He was hooked.”

    The one who really “contributed” however was Sam Giancana, without whose efforts we would have certainly had a President Nixon 8 years sooner, and how the rest of recent history would’ve played out is anybody’s guess… Had the general public been informed (as we now know) that Joe Kennedy was meeting with the likes of Giancana and Meyer Lansky in order to assure his son’s election, the Kennedy dynasty would have ended before it ever began. As it turned out, however, the Kennedys came to power as POTUS and AG but did not return the favors to the mob. Instead, Bobby prosecuted with a vengeance, and Jack did nothing to stop him, while the old man, who perhaps could’ve intervened, was incapacitated by a stroke. Payback time came then on Nov. 22, 1963, with more than a little help from their friends in the CIA…

  2. Good interview, Peter B. Thanks.
    I’m always amused by the comment, “That’s about as far as one can go…”, in reference to Bernie’s debate remarks on Palestine. Welcome to our world, Max, but that’s about as far as I dare go. 😉

  3. Speaking of distortion, it is probably getting time to address the Saudi Arabia 9/11 and vaccines are the only source of autism semi red herrings. These are damage control (specially given all the ADHD and learning disabilities nowadays. 60% of children have learning disabilities now? Preservatives, fluoride, pesticied and herbicieds, fake flavorings and colorings, etc… still must be addressed).

  4. This is the land of Palestine being stolen. How humanity and truth and beauty, are being stolen. A yawning silence broken only by a Pop in the head.
    Casual, emotionless murder.
    The medic calling the shot, remotely mentored from the experimental labs of holocaust, draws ’cause’ and ‘effect’ from the same source. Transmogrifies. The Palestinian youth, once Jewish, lay dying in the streets of Warsaw, Kiev., Berlin. The Shooter, once black shirt Nazi,, reverse, so that the Nazi is now IDF, and the man alone, dying, is the Palestinian. Semitic.
    Jump.
    Belgium bombings are reported by prof. Chossudovsky as entirely suspicious. http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-brussels-terror-attacks-fake-videos-and-images-the-man-in-the-hat/5519591
    Well. Major global news broadcasting CCTV from years earlier Russian public bombings as 2 hrs ago in Belgium nullifies further need of words … Suspicious? Christ almighty. What do police need to have to investigate ?
    Maybe the lesson learnt by Commissaire Helric Fredou?
    That these three alleged bombers alighted a taxi and THREE minutes later (7:55 -> 7:58) triggered their ordinance somewhere inside that complex, will remain, alongside the 15 minute clearing of ALL 290+Boston victims from the street without local ER vehicles, and the magic-bolt 6.5second drop (2.5seconds@FREEFALL) of 47 storied building seven on 911, as time travel/parallel universe type supernatural acts.
