DisInfoWars with Tom Secker- The Troubles

The War on Terror in Ireland lasted 30 years and killed thousands. In many ways it was the operational prototype for the modern War on Terror, and can be considered part of Operation Gladio. In this episode I explore The Troubles, beginning with the background of the struggle for Irish independence going back over a century. I outline how the struggle has always gone through its peaceful, political phases and its revolutionary violent phases. In every violent phase the British deep state has responded by enhancing the power of the security services.

I pick up the story in some detail in the 1970s, when the British Military Reconnaissance Force (MRF), an intelligence unit, recruited, trained, equipped and radicalized Loyalist paramilitaries to fight against the Republicans. Meanwhile, everyone and his son was infiltrating the Irish Republican Army (IRA), who were being quite openly funded by Irish Americans. I look at the techniques of the 'own goal', a type of disguised bombing, and the 'OOB' or 'Out of Bounds' broadcast, a means for protecting black operations. I round off by briefly explaining the case of Patrick Finucane, a human rights lawyer murdered in collusion with the British state.

BFP Roundtable Video- DOD Goes to Hollywood!

Pearse Redmond, Tom Secker & Prof. Matthew Alford on the Largest ever FOIA release from Pentagon's Entertainment Liaison Office"

In this episode Tom Secker and I are joined by Professor Matthew Alford for a discussion of the Department of Defense's' ever increasing relation with Hollywood cinema. We discuss the history and nature of the DOD's Hollywood Entertainment Liaison office, how this office has existed since the early 1900's and has had a tremendous influence on the creation of our cinema and culture, the current head of the DOD Entertainment Liaison Office, Phil Strubb, and how he has gone about expanding the scope and influence of the military's involvement in Hollywood films.

We later move on to a real bombshell - - a massive document dump that Tom and Matt received from the DOD Entertainment Liaison Office through an FOIA request. Representing the largest ever FOIA release of documents from the Pentagon's Hollywood office, these documents offer a rare glimpse into a persistent propaganda effort by the military. The three of us would also like to encourage everyone in the BFP community to look through these documents and let us know what you find. Tom, Matt and I each discovered different nuggets of information, so we would love to see what you find yourselves. Be sure to let us know in the comments section!

Probable Cause with Sibel Edmonds- Coups, False Flag Operations, Hearts & Minds

Welcome to our twelfth episode of Probable Cause. Today, with this episode, we are starting a new subtopic that is directly related to our macro subject. We are going to talk about strategic operations and synthetic events as catalysts to bring about forceful and rapid changes. We are going to talk about coups: Coup as in coups d'etat; coups d'etat as in "stroke of the state,” and defined as a sudden decisive exercise of force in politics.
For this new subtopic we are going to go back 35 years and look at the 1980 Military Coup in Turkey, brought about by the US-NATO-Turkish Military trio, and the synthetic terror events that preceded it.

As before I am going to use some first-hand and personal experiences and examples to illustrate how the strategy of tension and false flag operations are utilized for a major overt action; for a major stroke of the deep state- as in a coup. After that we are going to examine the parallels between the staged pre-coup events and the coup in Turkey and the 9/11 terror event and post-9/11 coup in the United States. And as always our next episode will be based on your reaction, critique, responses and questions posed in the comments section below.

Processing Distortion: “Abu Zubaydah’s Diaries Reveal Much”

Peter B. Collins Presents Jason Leopold

Investigative journalist Jason Leopold has just published the second of five parts in a series based on the private diaries that were collected when Abu Zubaydah was picked up in Pakistan in March, 2002. Leopold acquired them from an unnamed intelligence source, and they offer insight into Zubaydah's odyssey from displaced Palestinian raised in Saudi Arabia to jihadist in Afghanistan. The still-classified diaries show that Zubaydah knew bin Laden and other mujahideen, but was definitely not an al Qaeda member or leader, and had no advance knowledge of, or role in 9/11, as originally alleged by US intelligence. He confided to the diary his fear of insects, which was used to create the CIA's approved torture regimen, which also included waterboarding at least 83 times. The series installments are here, here & here.

Jason Leopold, currently reporting for Al Jazeera, has been reporting for 15 years for Dow Jones, the Los Angeles Times, and Truthout. He's an investigative reporter covering Guantanamo, counterterrorism, national security, human rights, open government and civil liberties issues. He is the author of a memoir, News Junkie.

De-Manufacturing Consent- Anarcho-Detroit: In the Absence of Government, A New Way Forward Emerges

Guillermo Jimenez Presents Karen DeCoster

On this edition of De-Manufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by writer, CPA, and creator of the blog "Detroit: From Rust to Riches," Karen DeCoster. Guillermo and Karen discuss the economics of the city of Detroit, what led to its bankruptcy, and what it says about the broader economic problems of the United States as a whole. Karen explains how the ineptness of government and the deterioration of bureaucratic regulation in Detroit have spawned an "anarchistic culture" within the city, and allowed for new businesses, entrepreneurs and "startups" to flourish outside the control of the state.

He is the author of several books including Western Sahara: War Nationalism& Conflict Irresolution Today we discuss the US and NATO's cascading series of blowback-disasters from Libya to Mali to Algeria and why "the enemy of your enemy is not your friend." They're just your future enemy. The conflict in Mali kick started nearly a year ago with a coup in March of 2012. One policy reaction after another fumbled in the face of the US's own Frankensteins which it created through poorly thought out intervention in North Africa. So what is happening now, and could this conflict grow further? Is France painting a target on itself? How much is gold a factor? Tune in.

The Reality Principle -Episode 12

“American Nightmare: Racism & the Prison-Industrial Complex” with Solomon Comissiong

RPLogoIn this week's episode, Eric examines one of the most complex and misunderstood issues in America today: the prison-industrial complex and its relation to deeply rooted racism in this country. Eric touches on the various ways in which mass incarceration and the prison system is perpetuated and used as a weapon against the poor and primarily people of color. He analyzes the profit factor, denouncing the dishonest nature of the prison system as little more than a source of cheap labor. He also discusses the effect on young people whose lives are utterly destroyed by this system.

Eric's guest this week is Solomon Comissiong - professor, author, activist. Solomon and Eric touch a number of issues including the "New Jim Crow" and the ways in which the corporate media frames the discussion on this issue. Also, they get into some of the hidden sociological forces at play in this issue. Eric and Solomon cover a wide range of topics in this lengthy and detailed conversation.

Soothing the Beast: Saturday Night BFP-Jamiol Music, Episode 13

Phil Collins

STB_S

Phil Collins needs no introduction. Picking a favorite song of his is always tough. For me Another Day in Paradise always comes out on top. Collins wrote it to bring attention to the problem of homelessness. He sings it like he cares about the woman in the song and others who are homeless. Tonight's Boiling Frogs Post/Jamiol Music pick is Phil Collins performing Another Day in Paradise live in Paris on his 2004 farewell tour. [Read more...]

Gil Scott-Heron

Soothing the Best

Gil Scott-Heron was a poet, author and most of all an extremely talented musician. With a blend of soul, jazz and the blues, his statements of social issues and the politics of his time were way out in front of other artists through that period. His work influenced much of the hip hop, soul and the rap of today earning him the titles of "the godfather of rap" and "the black Bob Dylan". One of his most notable pieces is tonight's BFP/Jamiol music pick. Folks, kick back and enjoy Gil Scott-Heron performing The Bottle from the album Winter in America with musician Brian Jackson.

The College Crisis

EPPWe are in the midst of a major college crisis: more students than ever before are graduating with professional educations and immense debt into a jobless market with no opportunities. The result of such a scenario, as any historian would warn, is the development of social unrest, dissatisfaction, rebellion, and potentially, revolution. As over 100,000 students on strike protested last week in Quebec against increased tuition costs, with the government stating its intent to dismiss and ignore them, student movements and protests are developing all over the world: Egypt, Tunisia, Chile, Taiwan, Spain, Portugal, the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada. Where did this college crisis come from?

It helps to look back at the activism of the 1960s which saw a "surge in democracy" among the population, and which created a terrifying scenario for elites. The response of elites to this "crisis of democracy" was to reduce democracy. In a secret memo to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a 1975 Trilateral Commission report, the "crisis" of popular participation in politics was identified, and the groundwork was laid for a counter-attack: neoliberalism, debt, and discipline. Today, we are seeing a further attack upon the population and democracy, and the students are beginning to stand up.
