Well it happened again. Despite government’s best efforts to scare the crap out of everyone just prior to Independence Day in the USA, there was NO terrorist attack. Nothing happened. But we did get to hear all about that “increased chatter” that “authorities” were aware of. And we got glimpse of highly militarized police.

Notice that before real terrorists strike nobody picks up any chatter. No worries about Charlie Hebdo. No warnings to beachgoers vacationing in Tunisia. The police are doing their normal chores of upholding the law by answering 911 calls and writing tickets for various infractions.

If authorities in the USA really thought there was going to be an attack of some sort, they’d be way ready and may not even bother to scare ordinary citizens about it.

Perhaps someone somewhere decided that every now and again we need a little spookin’ … Just enough so we can’t feel 100 percent alright at a fireworks display. Just enough so lots of police can walk around with big menacing weapons for all of us to see and for the TV news to report.

I hope we never again have to bear an attack like 9/11. But if one were to happen, you can safely assume we won’t get any advance notice.

I’ve always thought that as people living in America’s Free society we should be able to access information. Perhaps Edward Snowden has had the most success in disseminating interesting news, along with WikiLeaks, but why so many conspiracy theories?

Popular mistrust got a huge boost with the Roswell saucers – whatever the real story is – it was fertilized by the Betty and Barney Hill abduction and subsequent release of a ‘starmap’ Betty Hill was able to recall and draw under hypnosis. But I digress.

There has been a line of thought that we must be shielded from anything the Islamic State divulges over the internet through social media or other channels. It’s difficult, but on can find issues of Dabiq, the group’s glossy propaganda magazine. They can be followed on twitter and other apps, but only if you have plenty of time to search for material as accounts are sometimes deleted/removed within hours of being created.

As NBC says, “the more you know.” Access to info = freedom of speech. Internetizens who’ve been around awhile may recall Gopher and Archie. Did you know there are many of these sites still active/available in 2015? There is so much information you can find on the Internet, it is almost unthinkable that just 20% can actually be accessed by the “general public” at large.

ISIS FM radio station ‘al-Bayan’ began broadcasting almost a year ago in Mosul, Iraq on frequency 99.9 and audio clips can be found on the web. | {sample} | But access is not handed to anyone – you have to be pro-active! Initiate your own searches – that is the only way you will quench your thirst for knowledge. [Do not confuse 99.9 with the Australian radio outlet of the same name] There are also hallways and doorways on Darknet that you can explore – IF you know how to safely arrive there, and where to go when you do.

Eric Garris, @Antiwarcom founder and director, penned the piece Google Doubles Down: Demands Review of All Antiwar.com Content,” which states: “On Wednesday morning (3/18/15), Google AdSense suspended ad delivery to Antiwar.com demanding that we remove our 11-year-old pages that showed the abuse by U.S. soldiers of Iraqi detainees at Abu Ghraib. We publicized this and got a bit of coverage. [See in Gawker: ‘Google Suspends Site from Ad Network for Abu Ghraib Photo.”]

Yesterday [Thursday] Google contacted us and told us that they had given in and would be restoring ad service to Antiwar.com shortly. “However, this morning [Friday] they contacted us demanding that we remove this article. “Antiwar.com has no intention of allowing Google to dictate our content. We are looking into alternate sources of advertising and will not likely be working with Google AdSense in the future.” Read the rest of this entry »

As I was going through the latest issue of Dabiq, I was moved by journalist John Cantlie‘s article “Hard Talk: The Real Story Behind My Videos.” Many will dismiss it as propaganda, but I would bet if you read it, you would, as I did, detect the truths presented.

Colleague Cantile, who has gone from wearing black to orange, telegraphs the message ISIS is willing to negotiate with the U.S. and could have done so. The group is all too well aware of the swap of 5 high level imprisoned terrorists for army deserter Bo Bergdahl. In Dabiq #4 there are other articles which also seem to reach out to the U.S. in a “Let’s Talk” stance.

“…you need to appreciate the
story behind the scenes.”

Take  a walk through the pages of Dabiq, then read this interesting take on the new ISIS currency (keep an open mind!)

“Beware of the misinformation by main and alternative news sources, my friends. I would suggest you do as I do, go take the time to listen to the unfiltered speeches of people. YouTube provides them. Next time, dip into the first source and not third or forth hand sources.”

~ John Hogue, commenting on remarks the press attributed to Vladimir Putin

It has been imagined and presented many times in different ways via various scenarios storied in books, movies and tv, how modern American society would fare during a loss of government; during a breakdown of law and order.

There are some very intelligent people who can’t wait for Barack Obama to leave office. They fear the U.S. President is in fact a ‘trojan horse’ and that any given morning the nation might wake up to a dictatorship. That kind of thought is just a little over the top. Radical talk-show rhetoric distracting reasonable thinkers from drawing more logical conclusions. There are much graver things to be concerned about.

Take a closer look at ISIS, divorcing that look from anything you’ve recently seen or heard, pro and con.

The group originated as Jama’at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad in 1999, which became Tanzim Qaidat al-Jihad fi Bilad al-Rafidayn—commonly known as Al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI)—in 2004. Following the 2003 invasion of Iraq, AQI took part in the Iraqi insurgency. In 2006, it joined other Sunni insurgent groups to form the Mujahideen Shura Council, which consolidated further into the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) shortly afterwards. ISI gained a significant presence in Al Anbar, Nineveh, Kirkuk and other areas, but around 2008, its violent methods, including suicide attacks on civilian targets and the widespread killing of prisoners, led to a backlash from Sunni Iraqis and other insurgent groups.

In April 2013, the group changed its name to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL /ˈaɪsəl/), also translated as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS /ˈaɪsɪs/), also known by the Arabic acronym Daʿish and self-proclaimed as the Islamic State (IS), is a Sunni jihadist rebel group controlling territory in Iraq, Syria, eastern Libya and the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt.

In June 2014, ISIS announced the creation of a caliphate (Islamic state) that erases all state borders, making it the self-declared authority over the world’s estimated 1.5 billion Muslims

OK, cancel that divorce. But you still don’t know ISIS… (read More)
