Big Oil, Qataris, Saudis Lick Lips As US 'Fights ISIS' By Bombing Syrian Pipelines

In yet another example of the infantile nature of NATO propaganda regarding the Syrian crisis, it is now being reported in the mainstream media that that the United States must bomb Syrian oil pipelines in order to defeat the ISIS threat that NATO itself created.

While logically fallacious, the rationale offered to the American public remains that ISIS is making millions of dollars per day via the sale of the oil taken from the fields in its possession on the black market to a number of different states.

Yet, while the U.S. media does not bother to explain just how ISIS manages to extract, refine, and ship the oil, or how it is able to procure deals, and complete their transactions outside of the knowledge of Western militaries, governments, and intelligence agencies to the tune of $2 million per day, these outlets do provide the solution – bomb the oil pipelines belonging to Bashar al-Assad.

Of course, while it is most likely true that ISIS is using their commandeered oil sites to support themselves on a number of fronts, and even attempting (with some success) to sell that oil, the idea that ISIS is somehow able to evade the most sophisticated monitoring network in the entire world during the process of obtaining, refining, selling, and delivering oil across the region is entirely unbelievable. Indeed, it is about as believable as the claim that ISIS was able to seize such large swaths of territory across Syria and Iraq without the knowledge of the United States and NATO.

Regardless, it must be pointed out that, among the countries listed as hosting ISIS customers by mainstream outlets like CNN, Turkey and Jordan are at the top of the list, both close American allies and one a member of NATO. Even more interesting is the fact that ISIS has also allegedly sold “black market” oil to buyers in a number of EU member states.

How To Stop The Spread Of Ebola Without the Police State

Amidst the propaganda surrounding ebola and the specter of forced quarantine, mandatory vaccination, the police state, fear porn exposing ebola around every single corner and under every single bed, as well as credible suggestions that ebola is not actually infecting anyone in the cases presented by the government and media, it is hard to determine the seriousness of the threat posed by the disease to the United States.

As mentioned above, there are a number of outlets and researchers suggesting the possibility that ebola is a manufactured threat being used to terrify Americans into compliance with even greater violations of their civil rights, an increase of the police state, forced vaccination, and dislocation. This suggestion is indeed a distinct possibility and one that should not be ignored. However, for the purposes of this article, we will work on the assumption that ebola is indeed inside the United States and that the disease is posing a real threat to public health.

Assuming that the threat of ebola is real, there are a number of solutions to the festering pandemic that are acutely being ignored. Travel bans from affected areas, greater screening at airports and other national access points, particularly the U.S./Mexico border have all been largely ignored until recently. A comprehensive policy of treatment and containment of the disease that does not entail the implementation of martial law and the violation of Constitutional rights also appears to be nonexistent.

Yet there is also a more long term set of solutions that must be implemented in order to prevent the disease from spreading and to prevent its appearance in the first place. The end of austerity, the rebuilding of economic opportunity, access to proper nutrition, and the progress and development of the American health system are all essential to treating and preventing ebola and disease like it.

Mainstream 'Journalist' Reveals Agenda; Calls For Rape, Destruction of Syria

It is well-known among informed observers and virtually anyone that has even the smallest shred of discernment that mainstream media outlets are nothing more than the mouthpieces for their respective governments, banks, and corporations. These outlets act as a clear propaganda machine drumming up the beat for war by the presentation of clever narratives, subtle falsehoods, and outright lies.

Such deceit relies on the trust of a beguiled public who simply cannot fathom the idea that they are being lied to on such a mass scale. Indeed, the secrecy of the true agenda is what gives propaganda its power. So it is very rare that mainstream outlets, their “journalists,” or other major figures openly state the agenda that is behind their reporting and gives purpose to their every word.

But this is exactly what Robert Caruso of the Boston Globe, Huffington Post, The Guardian, Daily Beast, The Jerusalem Post, and other mainstream outlets did in a fit of rage yesterday evening.

Caruso is well known for his hardcore adherence to the absurd notion that Bashar al-Assad is committing atrocities against the Syrian people, that there is such a thing as “moderate rebels,” and that the U.S. and its NATO allies should arm terrorists and engage in military operations inside Syria.

The statements come after a Twitter fight erupted between himself and Mimi al-Laham, (aka SyrianGirl), a Syrian activist and geopolitical analyst who has been critical of the role the West has played in funding, directing, arming, and controlling terrorists for the purposes of destroying the secular government of Bashar al-Assad.

The two traded barbs for some time. During their back and forth, however, Caruso made the statement, "@Partisangirl I'm enjoying this conversation. I will enjoy your beloved Syria being torn apart with violence and Assad in exile even more.

New York Times FAIL: 'McCain No Connections To ISIS?!?'

“Conspiracy Theory!!!” cried the New York Times in its recent attempt to defend John McCain against revelations that show the Senator from Arizona providing material support to terrorism. The NY Times was called into action to “debunk” the evidence that McCain had met with terrorists, cannibals, and ISIS militants in Syria after the photographs of those meetings began circulating in the alternative media and more mainstream figures began to pick up on and run with them over the last few months.

From the New York Times, Rick Gladstone writes,

Senator John McCain was one of the earliest advocates of American military action against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. So it has been vexing for Mr. McCain to be battling persistent — and false — Internet rumors that he not only helped invent the group but also knows its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed caliph of the Muslim world and America’s latest Public Enemy No. 1. 
The rumors are based partly on images of a Syrian fighter who resembles Mr. Baghdadi, seen in photographs with Mr. McCain — some originally posted on Twitter by the senator — during his visit in May 2013 to northern Syria. He met members of the Free Syrian Army, an insurgent group that opposes ISIS and that President Obama, in a speech Wednesday on his new strategy for battling ISIS, has vowed to strengthen. 
Nurtured by conspiracy blogposts, social media and photo-altering tricks, the false rumors of Mr. McCain’s relationship with ISIS have taken on a life of their own.


ISIS Conveniently Develops Air Force as NATO Seeks "No-Fly Zone" Over Syria

If Wile E. Coyote were a terrorist, his name would be ISIS. At least that is what the mainstream media and Western governments intent on overthrowing the secular government of Bashar al-Assad would have you believe.

According to the mainstream press, despite being highly-trained supermen who are ten feet tall and invincible, ISIS continues to make every public relations step it takes in the wrong direction. The recent announcement that ISIS now possesses an air force is case in point.

It was reported on October 17, by FOX News that “ISIS could be soon taking its terror fight to the sky, after a report that former Iraqi pilots are training Islamic militants to fly captured Syrian war planes.”

According to the death squad friendly propaganda organization known as the Syrian Observatory For Human Rights, a number of former Iraqi air force pilots are now training ISIS fighters to fly three warplanes captured in Syria - MIG 21 and MIG 23 jets – in apparent preparation to launch air attacks in the Middle East region.

As FOX reports,

The rights group reported the planes flying over the Jarrah air base in the eastern countryside of the Syrian town of Aleppo this week.

Rami Abdurrahman, director of the Observatory, said the planes have been flying at a low altitude, apparently to avoid being detected by Syrian military radar in the area.

"People saw the flights, they went up many times from the airport and they are flying in the skies outside the airport and coming back," the BBC reported Abdurrahman said.

Turkey Denies Plan for "Buffer Zone" in Syria by Calling for "Buffer Zone" in Syria

Following the lead of American leaders like Dick Cheney, and Barack Obama, Turkish officials are now inching forward with their plans to implement a buffer zone and no-fly zone over Syria by simply changing the name of the zone they wish to implement.


Like Dick Cheney’s “Enhanced Interrogation” and Obama’s “Kinetic Military Action,” Turkey’s Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has now stated that Turkey is neither calling for a “buffer zone” or a “no-fly zone” enforced by the military over Syria; it is calling for a “safe zone” to be enforced by the military over Syria. In other words, Turkey is calling for a “buffer zone” and a “no-fly zone” to be enforced by the military in Syria.

Davutoglu’s statements were made in an interview with Al Jazeera on Wednesday October 17. By changing the name of the buffer zone to a safe zone, Davutoglu is banking on the hopes that the Turkish people remain as befuddled as the American public. The truth is that, most likely, they are not.

Unfortunately, Americans appear to be susceptible to any and all forms of propaganda, no matter how trite and pathetic it may be. For this reason, it is likely that the general public will be easily sold on the idea of a NATO enforced “safe zone” in Syria that begets even more direct war in the middle east and an untold additional number of innocent lives lost in Syria as well as the destruction of the secular government of Bashar al-Assad. The general public, of course, will watch airstrikes, missile attacks, and other military action in total confusion and ignorance only to forget Syria was ever a country two weeks later.
