Newsbud Report with Peter B. Collins- Episode #2

Did we just finish Mainstream Media Malpractice Week? We examine the media’s premature projection of Hillary Clinton as Democratic nominee. We report on the FBI’s expanding use of paid informants in “domestic terrorism” cases, like the recent convictions in Minneapolis; and the FBI’s push for expanded powers to monitor internet activity. We examine NY Gov. Cuomo’s order to punish supporters of boycotts of Israel, and journalist Max Blumenthal comments in our interview. In our Newsbud Exclusive, Prof. Filip Kovacevic reports on Russia’s plan to counter NATO expansion with its Alliance of Neutral States. We also cover Brazil’s deepening crisis, and the US role in the 2009 coup in Honduras.

*We need your support to make Newsbud a reality. Please pledge today for a 100% People-Funded Media with Integrity.

“Everybody Knows” but …

“Play it again, Leo”


cohenThose of you who listen to our podcast show know my infatuation with Leonard Cohen; specifically two of his songs: Everybody Knows and the End.  This morning I was quickly surfing the net for some hidden gems (my nightly select news & editorials for you), and came across a Cohen’s Everybody Knows video clip posted at LRC Blog. For those of you who are not familiar with Boiling Frogs Podcast Interviews, and of course its theme song, here it is:

Isn’t it brilliant? Don’t you think it’s timeless? Obviously it is timeless when you consider its applicability then, before then, now, and unfortunately, most likely, in the future; at least the near future. It reminds us cynically, grimly, but so very realistically that: Everybody Knows, but most deny, some look the other way, a few acknowledge, and a very few actually try to do something about it. It is good to be in the company of the ‘so very few;’ my irate minority friends here at Boiling Frogs PostJ

Have a nice weekend to you all,

Rep. Ron Paul on the CIA Coup: Time to Take Out the CIA?

‘The CIA has taken over the US in a coup!’

Here is a clip from a recent speech by Congressman Ron Paul on the CIA:

There's been a coup - have you heard? It's the CIA coup. The CIA runs everything! They run the military .. and they're every bit as secretive as the Federal Reserve. And yet, think of the harm they have done since they were established at the end of World War II. They are a government unto themselves. They're in businesses, in drug businesses, they take out dictators... We need to take out the CIA!

I don’t remember ever hearing any politician, elected official, putting these points out so very boldly, unapologetically, and fearlessly.

Let’s face it: Has there ever been anything good, anything positive, associated with this dark agency? Some may say ‘Hey, we don’t get to know of the good they do, or have done, because it would be all secret!’ Really? I mean really? Despite all the secrecy we’ve gotten to know about hundreds of flops, abuses, shady businesses, atrocious murders and assassinations, human rights violations - torture, kidnappings, renditions…With that sort of no logic-logic, you’d think their intended secrecy would prevent us from knowing about these horrendous disasters and the criminal conduct they commit around the world in our name and with our money. And, that they’d leak all sorts of heroic and good deeds (if they ever existed) to gloat about and take credit for. No?

If you were to go around the world and take a survey on what is it that most people hate about the United States, you’d hear the word ‘CIA’ as the answer given by many. Or if the answer is ‘US Foreign Policy’ and that answer is probed further, you’d see that mainly it comes down to the CIA and their dark operations conducted around the world in the last 6 decades or so. I know a little bit about this, having lived in various countries. It’s never been ‘the Americans,’ or ‘the American way of life,’ or … So do we really see this agency and its dark conduct as the representation of who we Americans are, what we believe, and how we want to treat the rest of the world? Do you?

Okay, now it is your turn. Please tell us what you think?
