Zogby Agrees 95% with 650,000 Iraqi Death Count Study

October 17, 2006

Reported by CNN International – click to watch.

Another case of CNN reporting one thing within the United States and something very different to its international audience.

Zogby polls are used to predict the winner of every recent Presidential race, and are viewed as the most credible agency out there when it comes to polls and estimates.

In contrast with the 650,000 person estimate established through scientific means, the US claims less than 40,000 civilians have lost their lives through violence since the US invasion.

In the US, the recent Lancet report on Iraqi civilian deaths being over the 650,000 mark was glossed over and US government denials and comments from George Bush dominated the reporting.

Outside the US, the fraudulent nature of the US government’s Iraqi civilian death count is openly discussed.

This is just more evidence that the US is the most heavily propagandized nation on Earth.


CBS News/NY Times Poll: 84% of Americans Question Official 9/11 Story

October 16, 2006

Full article here, excerpts below,

Many adults in the United States believe the current federal government has not been completely forthcoming on the issue of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, according to a poll by the New York Times and CBS News. 53 per cent of respondents think the Bush administration is hiding something, and 28 per cent believe it is lying.

Only 16 per cent of respondents say the government headed by U.S. president George W. Bush is telling the truth on what it knew prior to the terrorist attacks, down five points since May 2002.

On Aug. 6, 2001, a Presidential Daily Briefing titled “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” mentioned “patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attacks, including recent surveillance of federal buildings in New York.”

Polling Data

When it comes to what they knew prior to September 11th, 2001, about possible terrorist attacks against the United States, do you think members of the Bush Administration are telling the truth, are mostly telling the truth but hiding something, or are they mostly lying?

MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann on the Military Commission Act

October 13, 2006

The Military Commission Act is that “End of America” bill that was passed a couple weeks ago, the bill you of course have heard nothing of on the mainstream news, thanks to one diversion story after another.  From Mark Foley and what seems to be a cult of homosexuality in Congress, to the plane crash of Cory Lidle, which the media and Bush have used to conjure up memories of 9/11.

MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann has once again done an excellent job talking about the bill this week, here’s the video.

Make sure to check out all of the other Keith Olbermann clips there on YouTube.  Since Google now owns YouTube, there’s probably not much time left before the censoring begins, like it has over on Google Video.


Google Censors TerrorStorm Again

October 5, 2006

TerrorStorm is the newest film by Alex Jones and can be watched online for free here.

A couple weeks ago, all of the different uploads for TerrorStorm on Google Video (there were around 20 different uploads of the movie by different people) had their visitor count reset back down to zero, something only Google could do. I almost did an entry on it, but I ignored it. The combined total of viewers on Google alone was over 2 million, and the movie was just starting to be featured in the “Most Popular” section, which would make it’s visibility skyrocket. The latest news today is that Google Video has once again reset the TerrorStorm uploads once again.

For a full article on this by the people who made TerrorStorm, which focuses on the history of Government sponsored terrorism & 9/11, click here. I’ll include interesting quotes from the article below.

Google Video has re-imposed a crass censorship policy to intentionally stifle the growth of Alex Jones’ Terror Storm documentary and prevent it from reaching tens of millions of people by covertly editing viewer statistics and blocking the film from entering its popular categories.

Last week we highlighted how Google had reset viewing totals for Terror Storm from hundreds of thousands of views on several different video versions back down to zero for each one.

Following a complaint Google admitted that the numbers had been reset by mistake, despite the fact that the error only seemed to apply to Terror Storm, and assured us that the problem would not re-occur.

A brief appraisal of the viewership figures for the multiple different versions of Terror Storm again shows that Google have deliberately reset the viewership stats to prevent the film getting a foothold in the Popular, Featured, or Movers and Shakers categories. It is only when a film enters these prominent categories that it really begins to spread like wildfire and enter a cycle of exponential multiplication.

Figures that were heading towards 500,000 views for different uploads of the film are now back in the low hundreds and tens of thousands. The number of viewer submitted comments remains the same but the viewership numbers have clearly been unfairly doctored.

Loose Change appears in the featured video section of Google Video on almost every visit to the website because of its immeasurable viral impact and we are delighted for Dylan Avery and the rest of his crew that such a dynamic film is reaching tens of millions of people.

Its viewership figures have not been reset and continue to multiply, along with other popular truth movement films such as 9/11 Mysteries: Demolitions. Google’s alleged “mistake” only seems to apply to Terror Storm and no other video.

Such a policy would not come as a surprise as we have consistently run into censorship issues with Google.

During our Charlie Sheen coverage, Google intentionally blocked news stories pertaining to Sheen’s comments which were first made on the Alex Jones Show and turned into a nationwide media spectacle.

Even after the story had gone supernova, and our original write-up had been linked all over the web, including the Drudge Report, Google’s main search engine did not list the article.

After we blew the whistle on this act of censorship, the story was re-listed and Google even began carrying some of our content in their news section – a practice that has now also ceased.

We appreciate the great service that Google Video provides for free but what are they so afraid of that they would deliberately alter viewership totals and suppress the impact of this movie?


The NSA Databases

October 4, 2006

Today’s entry will focus on the formerly illegal domestic wiretapping that has been going on in America since 9/11. Last Thursday, it became completely legal to do what is detailed in the following article by USA Today. I’ll have the most interesting sections of the article posted below.

For the full article, click here.

The National Security Agency has been secretly collecting the phone call records of tens of millions of Americans, using data provided by AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth, people with direct knowledge of the arrangement told USA TODAY.

The NSA program reaches into homes and businesses across the nation by amassing information about the calls of ordinary Americans — most of whom aren’t suspected of any crime.

“It’s the largest database ever assembled in the world,” said one person, who, like the others who agreed to talk about the NSA’s activities, declined to be identified by name or affiliation. The agency’s goal is “to create a database of every call ever made” within the nation’s borders, this person added.

For the customers of these companies, it means that the government has detailed records of calls they made — across town or across the country — to family members, co-workers, business contacts and others.

The three telecommunications companies are working under contract with the NSA, which launched the program in 2001 shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the sources said. The program is aimed at identifying and tracking suspected terrorists, they said.

The sources would talk only under a guarantee of anonymity because the NSA program is secret.

In defending the previously disclosed program, Bush insisted that the NSA was focused exclusively on international calls. “In other words,” Bush explained, “one end of the communication must be outside the United States.”

As a result, domestic call records — those of calls that originate and terminate within U.S. borders — were believed to be private.

This is the same pattern we’ve gone through with anything else the past few years. When questioned, the Bush Administration, or whoever else in a position of power, deny whatever it is. After denying it for a while, it begins to become clear they are lying. They then admit that they have been doing whatever it is, and then they make it legal in a matter of days. In other cases, they argue a case until it’s obvious they are wrong, and then it’s ignored from then on. We’re in a pathetic situation right now.
