    Radical Islam is spreading across Belgium, Salafists preach via TV & online media – report

    Salafism is advancing in Belgium, a leaked report from the country’s coordination body for threat assessment says, adding that Wahhabi TV stations and online media operate freely while radical literature can be found in most Islamic bookshops.

    The report by the Coordination Unit for Threat Analysis (OCAM), a special body which works in cooperation with security and intelligence agencies to assess the level of terrorist threat in Belgium, was leaked by De Standaard newspaper on Wednesday.
    “An increasing number of mosques and Islamic centers in Belgium are controlled by the Wahhabism,” the document states.
    Wahhabism, a strict form of Islam promoted inside Saudi Arabia as well as through government programs abroad, has indirectly encouraged the rise of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL). It is sometimes considered the true Salafist movement, and calls for a return to the original “purity” of Islam.

    The movement’s tenets include the supremacy of Sharia law, the idea of violent jihad, and takfirism, which encourages the killing of Muslims considered heretics for not following its interpretation of Islam.

    The Coordination Unit for Threat Analysis (OCAM) calls Wahhabism “one-dimensional Islam,” adding that it is "spreading in the Muslim world, including Muslim minorities in the West.” According to the report, many Sunni Muslims consider Wahhabi principles to be the norm these days.

    Wahhabi supporters try “to turn away Muslims from West European values and standards,” which they perceive as being contrary to the teachings of the Koran, according to OCAM.

    De Standaard, which read the report, says that Wahhabi imams regularly preach in Belgian mosques and many mosques are strictly Wahhabist, particularly in the cities of in Brussels, Antwerp, and Mechelen. There are even Wahhabi TV channels and online media, according to the report.
    “Most Islamic bookshops and online stores in Belgium offer exclusively Wahabist, Salafist [content] printed in Arabic or in translation.”

    Thus, “a moderate imam in his mosque” can do nothing about this “media violence,” the report concludes.

    OCAM CEO Paul Van Tigchelt refused to comment on the leaked report to De Standaard.

    Belgium has been on high alert since twin suicide bombings hit Zaventem Airport and Maelbeek metro station on last March. The station is near the buildings of the EU Commission and the Council of the European Union, as well as the headquarters of NATO.

    Numerous raids have been conducted in the mainly Muslim Molenbeek area of Brussels, which is often referred to as an “Islamist hotspot.” Many of the suspects involved in the Paris attacks grew up and lived in Molenbeek, including terrorist mastermind Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the Abdeslam brothers, and Mohamed Abrini, who was also involved in the Brussels attacks.

    In November, Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders warned the EU of an increasing influx of returning fighters who could carry out terrorist attacks in Europe.

    This article from PressTV may make it clearer, more than the one above, that "education" and vested interests are at work:

    Belgian national crisis center: Spread of Saudi-backed Wahhabism cause for concern

    Belgium has voiced concerns over the spread of Saudi-backed Wahhabism throughout the country and the rest of Europe.

    According to a Wednesday report by De Standaard, the country's OCAM national crisis center stressed that Wahhabism is being preached in an increasing number of the country's mosques receiving financial support from Saudi Arabia.

    "We believe that a growing number of mosques and Islamic centers in Belgium, like the rest of Europe, are under the influence of Wahhabism," said the OCAM.

    Wahhabism is the radical ideology dominating Saudi Arabia, freely preached by government-backed clerics there, and inspiring terrorists worldwide. Daesh and other Takfiri terror groups use the ideology to declare people of other faiths as "infidels" and then kill them.

    "We also note that the imams of these mosques are regularly being 'salafized' or are already 'salafized'," added the center.

    It noted that Saudi Arabia has also initiated a "generous" bursary system for foreign students, who are later encouraged to indoctrinate people in Belgium and other countries with Wahhabism.

    "The Saudi authorities and the Wahhabist establishment have clearly settled on this method to reinforce the influence of the doctrine and practice of Wahhabism in Muslim communities in Europe," it stressed.

    According to officials, Belgium has the highest amount of extremists leaving the country and joining terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq in proportion to is population.

    The country has been on high alert since the Brussels airport and underground system attacks last year that left 32 people dead. The attacks were claimed by the Daesh terrorist group, one of whose major regional supporters is widely reported to be Saudi Arabia.

    Malala - Illuminati Tool is Made "Honorary Citizen"

    by Zafar Bangash (The Crescent, Nov 2012)
    (Edited/abridged by henrymakow.com) April 4, 2017

    Malala is another Illuminati Psy Op


    ("Educating girls will change the world," Malala,17, told the UN in July 2013. She is spearheading a lucrative for-profit school initiative.)


    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Monday that Malala Yousafzai will visit Canada on April 12, 2017, to address the Canadian Parliament and to officially receive the honorary Canadian citizenship bestowed upon her in 2014.

    Malala has the hallmarks of an Illuminati psy op. The article below by Zahar Bangash outlines the Illuminati connection to Malala and confirms once again we live in a de facto Communist regime.

    Malala is a champion of education for girls. "Education" today is gendercide (feminism). The Illuminati use this toxin to destroy traditional societies and reduce population by alienating women from marriage and motherhood.

    Who says learning only takes place in a classroom, and not in a home where the Illuminati can't control the message?

    Liberal (i.e. Masonic) education has degraded Western society and created many generations of lost souls.

    As usual, the Illuminati "do well by doing good." Malala's father owns a chain of private schools and huge UK/US education corporations are vying for a share of the "Malala Fund" cash grab.

    Anyone who watches the Malala hagiography can confirm that Western society is run by hypocritical, sanctimonious, shameless intellectual whores and liars.

    ---------------------------------------------

    The attack on Malala Yousafzai [in Oct. 2012] evoked worldwide condemnation. From US President Barack Obama to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, all condemned the attack. The question is: why is Malala given so much prominence when other attacks on girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan go virtually unnoticed?

    The attempt on the life of Malala Yousafzai, a 15-year-old Pakistani schoolgirl from Mingora in Pakistan's Swat Valley on October 9, 2012 aroused worldwide outrage. Two other girls were also injured in the attack as Malala was returning home in a school bus. There were rallies in her support not only in Pakistan but some very high-powered global players also weighed in on her case. In what must be a first, US President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown all condemned the attack on Malala as did most politicians in Pakistan. Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie suggested Malala should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize [she got it in 2014) while Madonna put Malala's name on her bare back!

    Let us get the basic facts straight before we proceed. She was attacked and badly injured when a gunman boarded the school bus she was riding home from school. The gunman demanded to know who Malala was. When another girl student pointed to her, the gunman opened fire, hitting Malala in the head and neck. The gunman also shot and wounded two other girls before escaping. The badly wounded girl was rushed to Peshawar, capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province....


    But who exactly is Malala Yousufzai to attract so much international attention? What about the two other girls that were injured in the same attack? Even their names are not widely known, much less information about their parents. Apart from the fact that they are out of danger, there is little that we know about their plight. Are they not worthy of attention and sympathy? Within days of the assault on Malala, American troops killed three Afghan children on October 14 in an aerial attack in the Nawa district of Helmand Province in Afghanistan. It may not be adjoining Swat Valley but is not very far either from where Malala was attacked and injured.


    (Father with exploited daughter)


    DAUGHTER OF A PRIVATE SCHOOL MOGUL
    Malala was born on July 12, 1997. Her father, Ziauddin Yousufzai, owns a number of for-profit schools. While almost everything else in Pakistan is going down the drain, for-profit schools and the closely related non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that are generously financed from abroad are thriving businesses. [Guess where the money from the Malala Fund is going. ]

    It was a BBC reporter [Abdul Hai Kakkar who discovered Malala in early 2009. His assignment was to find a courageous schoolgirl willing to share her experiences of the threats by Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP) against girls getting education. The TTP led by Mullah Fazlullah was shutting down schools in Swat Valley as it flexed its muscles. Kakkar approached Ziauddin Yusufzai for help and he willingly offered his own daughter's experiences.

    The plan gelled into Malala, then 11 years old, writing her diary that the BBC World Service would put on its website under the title, "The Diary of a Pakistani School Girl." In order to protect her identity, Malala was given the pseudonym "Gul Makai" (corn flower). The diary detailed Malala's life under Taliban rule, their attempts to take control of the valley, and her views on promoting education for girls. One cannot help but wonder whether her father's motive was in promoting girls' education or he feared his income dwindling if the girls' schools he was running were shut down.

    ENTER THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS
    Malala's cover, however, was blown that summer when Adam B. Ellick of the New York Times featured her in two videos describing her family's life as well as showed her at school. This was the time the Pakistani military was about to launch an attack on Swat Valley. What was the reason for the Times to go public with this information and who is Adam Ellick?


    Scott Creighton, a war veteran who writes for the blog the American Everyman, had this to say about Ellick, above, on October 17.
    "Meet Adam Ellick, the Council on Foreign Relations member and apparent CIA mockingbird stationed at the New York Times. He's the guy who helped create the Malala Psyop in the first place, the plan to bring for-profit school systems to all of Pakistan."
    The Times' videos led to Malala gaining instant international fame. For the Pakistani media -- print and electronic -- this was a great opportunity to project their loyalty to America. That is where the dollar pipeline comes from. In the WikiLeaks cables released in 2010, the US embassy messages to the US State Department say Pakistani journalists are easily bought and can be made to do anything for a mere invitation to the US embassy. Despite such insulting revelations about their low character, the US-doting Pakistani journalists are not deterred.

    Malala's Times videos brought the Pakistani media flocking to her door. She began giving interviews in the print and electronic media. We need to keep in mind that she was barely 11 or 12 years old at the time. At the same time, she was appointed chairperson of the District Child Assembly Swat. Further accolades followed when the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Bishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, nominated her in October 2011 for the International Children's Peace Prize. But there was something else that was even more striking. Richard Holbrooke, the US special envoy for Pakistan and Afghanistan who died on December 13, 2010, had also discovered Malala, or her enterprising father. Their picture together has gone viral on the internet. Why would Holbrooke, a no-nonsense diplomat, be interested in Ziauddin Yousafzai unless there was a larger plan at work? Two months after Bishop Tutu's nomination of Malala, the Pakistani government came up with its own award: the "National Youth Prize Award," a first for Pakistan, that was given to Malala.


    (April 2013- One of TIME's 100 Most Influence Illuminati Pawns in the World)


    HIDDEN AGENDAS
    For decades, the Pakistani establishment has been obsessed with the Indian intelligence agency RAW. In the last decade, Pakistan has become a battleground for the CIA, British MI6, Germany's BND and the Israeli Mossad, to name only a few, whose agents roam every nook and cranny of the country, mostly disguised as journalists, aid workers or businessmen. So it is not surprising to learn that poor Malala was used as a pawn by these monsters that will stop at nothing to advance their nefarious agenda. It does not require a genius to figure out what the US-British-Zionist and their allies' agenda in Pakistan is: to entangle Pakistan in a never-ending conflict with its own people from the tribal area to provide the pretext for grabbing Pakistan's nuclear weapons...


    (Pedophile Gordon Brown, "UN Special Envoy for Education" with Malala)


    There is one other dimension worthy of attention and that is what the former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has done. He has launched a United Nations petition using the slogan "I am Malala" demanding that all children in the world should be in school by 2015. He plans to present the petition to Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari later this month. Brown's activities on behalf of Malala and indeed other children would sound more noble were it not for the fact he heads the "global campaign for charter, for-profit school systems." There is tons of money to be made in this enterprise.

    Brown's campaign is supposed to work in tandem with the UN's scheme run under the alluring title, "Education First." This is a global public/private partnership scheme whereby not-for-profit institutions would be privatized. The "not-for-profit" institutions are run under the label, "Global Business Coalition for Education," and set up by such Western -- mainly American -- corporations as Accenture, Hess, Chevron, Pearson International and others. Their targeted countries are Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Ethiopia and Nigeria. One is constrained to ask, what interest do these multinationals have in promoting education in the third world, especially Muslim countries?


    (Crackerjacks, Now With Nobel Prizes!)


    Let us be clear: the West and its corporations are not in the business of doling out cash to third world countries or caring much about the children there unless there is a hidden agenda behind the façade of their good work.
    One is clearly to re-route the billions of dollars to their own pockets.

    The other equally sinister plan is to promote Western culture, thoughts and values by using the label of education.

    The third and equally sinister plan is to force targeted societies -- in this case Pakistan -- to launch military operations against its own people in North Waziristan to achieve America's geo-political objectives.
    Whether Malala knows it or not, if her father has any sense he would realize that his family is being used as dupes for America's criminal enterprise. Malala is a tiny piece in this jigsaw puzzle.

    Dan writes:
    Ah yes. The girl whose fame literally started out with a bang in 2012. Shot in the head by the Taliban!

    I usually reach for a loaded gun when people try to write current events into the Bible, but Revelations 13:3 is too close to pass up:
    "And I saw one of the heads of the Beast as it were wounded to death; but his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast."
    I don't believe Revelations was prophecy for our time, it was all fulfilled long ago. The notion that it's for our time came of the 'Dispensation theology' of John Neslon Darby, Joseph Smith, and Scofield, that's spread through Churchianity like a virus in the 20th century.

    But I do believe this malevolent cult that gives us out 'leaders' love to write themselves into the Bible and the Qur'an when they can. If you believe Revelations is happening today that's alright, but at least read the book and get it right. A lot of people think the one that gets the head wound is the Antichrist, but all John said is "one of the heads of the Beast" - and the Beast is the System, not a person. So it really does fit: Malala is definitely one of the heads of the Beast.

    So let's not get excited. Zafar Bangash is exactly right: little girls get shot, in Pakistan all the time - whether by the Taliban, or Obama's drone strikes that splatters Pakistani women and girls all over sidewalks. (see Obama's boast, "I'm really good at killing people".) When Malala had her summit meeting with the President of the United States she only complained that drone warfare "fuels terrorism".

    We don't need Bible prophecies or Nostradamus to know who Malala is. Just look at the company she keeps: See TIME Magazine, April 2014, HILLARY CLINTON (an essay by) Malala Yousafzai

    First Comment by AA:
    The locals of Swat also have a very different story to tell from what the media is telling us. There was an interview on YouTube of a woman who grew up in Swat and was there when Malala was shot. The main points being:
    - the people of Swat were living peacefully under Taliban rule, with their girls going to school without any problems

    - the Taliban were in the process of implementing Shariah (Islamic law), and had no issues with girls' education

    - around this same time the Malala issue exploded

    - the woman was shocked and had no idea why Malala should be struggling for a right that she wasn't deprived of in the first place

    - her conclusion is that the whole situation was manufactured in order to push for military aggression in Swat against the implementation of Islamic law

    Democrats Ask Teachers To Destroy Books Written By ‘Climate Deniers’

    By Andrew Follett
    Energy and Science Reporter - DailyCaller.com.

    Three senior House Democrats asked U.S. teachers Monday to destroy a book written by climate scientists challenging the environmentalist view of global warming.
    ___________________________________________




    The Democrats were responding to a campaign by the conservative Heartland Institute [sending] copies of the 2015 book, “Why Climate Scientists Disagree About Global Warming” to about 200,000 science teachers. Democratic Reps. Bobby Scott of the Committee on Education, Raúl M. Grijalva of the Committee on Natural Resources, and Eddie Bernice Johnson of the Committee on Science, Space and Technology all issued a statement telling teachers to trash the book.

    “Public school classrooms are no place for anti-science propaganda, and I encourage every teacher to toss these materials in the recycling bin,” Scott said. “If the Heartland Institute and other climate deniers want to push a false agenda on global warming, our nation’s schools are an inappropriate place to drive that agenda.”

    The book’s three authors all hold doctorates and taught climate or related science at the university level. The book was written by former Arizona State University climatologist Dr. Craig D. Idso, James Cook University marine geology and paleontology professor Robert M. Carter, and University of Virginia environmental scientist Dr. Fred Singer.

    Grijalv accused the scientists of “lying to children about the world we live in to further corporate polluter profits” and said that doing so was “cruel.” Johnson stated that the scientists had sent “scientifically inaccurate materials on climate change to public school teachers across the country” at the behest of ominous right wing donors and the Charles and David Koch brothers.

    The best way to get adults to act like environmentalists is by brainwashing their children, according to research published by Oregon State University. Talking to kids about global warming caused their parents to use less energy and act more like environmentalists. The research was run on was run on 30 Girl Scout troops in northern California and had a “lasting impact on family energy consumption” for at least eight months after the end of the program.

    Based on the study’s success, the researchers are now disseminating the curriculum to Girl Scout leaders around the country and attempting to adapt it to other groups of kids, including schools and youth-focused organizations such as 4-H with the help of other universities, such as Stanford. The research was financially supported by government grants.

    From:

    ================================================== ===

    Quote ... our nation’s schools are an inappropriate place to drive that agenda.”
    ... from those who also gloat about this:

    Confusing, mixing up and amalgamating energy with climate change with pollution doesn't exactly conform to any scientific discernment protocol...

    The best reason not to home-school your children

    by Jon Rappoport Apr 30, 2017

    After conducting a multi-center, phase-3, double-blind, placebo controlled, independently reviewed study, encompassing 39 countries, various undersea kingdoms, and the moon, I’ve concluded that the best reason parents shouldn’t home-school their children is:

    They can’t.

    They can’t, because the public education they received was so wan and thin and bereft of substance, they’re unfit to teach.

    For those parents who did receive a decent education, and who can handle the schedule, home schooling is a rational decision.

    At minimum, it removes them and their kids from a system designed to impart values, values that should be taught at home.

    Sex. Politics. Mental health. Vaccination. Gender. Contraception. Abortion. Diversity. These are a few issues schools now consider “public.” Schools become society’s parents. It takes a village. Their kind of village. They run it. They own it. “For the children.”

    Put a bright parent and his/her children in a room, and who knows how quickly learning can take place? What schools try to impart in a year, in standard course work, might be accomplished in a month.

    Plus, the commitment to educating one’s children to be as smart, sharp, independent, strong, free, responsible, and creative as possible revolutionizes the whole idea of what a family can be.

    Of course not all parents are up to it. But those who are need not wait around and believe that catering to the lowest common denominator of society is a moral position worth taking.

    There are home-schooling challenges. One of the deepest occurs at the intersection of fostering independence in a child vs. the parent imparting his own values to that child. There is no manual or system for solving this situation. It is ongoing. Working it out is part of working out the whole relationship within a family.

    It’s called life.

    The so-called “progressive agenda” is unrelenting. It is aimed at programming new citizens for a Globalist world. Everyone is tolerant, everyone is equal, everyone is dependent, everyone gives in to the Super State.

    Against that, cultivating the emergence of a child’s unique and independent interests, desires, and talents is a genuine North Star. No matter which way civilization heads, this is vital.

    The individual can never be eradicated. But why promote the deflated and purposeless individual? Why not work to bring forward his power, through actual, not fake education?

    Thomas Jefferson’s central idea in promoting public education was: teaching students how to be citizens in Republic. A Republic equals severely limited federal government and individual freedom. Jefferson’s premise, of course, has been turned on its head. Now public education entails teaching students to fit into a nation/planet of centralized power coalesced at the top.

    That reversal doesn’t happen by accident. It was planned and spread as a form of mind control.

    It aims to destroy forever the axioms of a Republic.

    Parents are the best line of defense.
    “Why is it that millions of children who are pushouts or dropouts amount to business as usual in the public schools, while one family educating a child at home becomes a major threat to universal public education and the survival of democracy?”

    IMF’s policies reduce parents’ ability to care for their children – study

    The International Monetary Fund’s austerity policies may be reducing the ability of parents to look after their children’s health in poor and middle-income countries, new research says.

    The study, dubbed ‘Impact of International Monetary Fund programs on child health’, was published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on Monday.

    The research involved at least 2.8 billion people, or about 50 percent of the world’s population, residing in 67 poor and middle-income countries from 2000 to 2005. The study looked at five factors that have an impact on children’s health, including water, malnutrition, shelter, sanitation, and access to healthcare. Researchers from Cambridge, Oxford, Amsterdam, and Waikato (New Zealand) universities contributed to the report.

    The researchers analyzed how parents’ education can impact their children’s health, while examining the role the IMF plays in determining how countries distribute their resources to educational and public health programs. The authors found that it can be more difficult for parents to look after their children’s health under IMF reforms.

    “In the absence of a [IMF] program, children living in an educated household have reduced odds of being malnourished by 38 percent compared with children of uneducated households,” the study says, as cited by AFP.

    IMF programs diminished “the protective effect of education against child malnourishment by no less than 17 percent in rural contexts,” it said.

    In the meantime, the authors admitted that, while they found links between parents’ education and their children’s health, they could make no direct connection between the IMF and child health.

    Adel Daoud, one of the report’s authors from the Cambridge Judge Business School at Cambridge University, explained that “what we are observing in our study is a type of indirect effect.”


    “Our study shows that in those countries with an IMF program, parents in rural areas are struggling a bit more to care for children,” he said. “In these groups, the levels of child health are indeed a bit lower than those exact same areas but without IMF programs,”
    Daoud told AFP.

    The new "education" system:

    7 y.o. autistic boy detained for 6 days for acting out in class

    Matt Agorist
    The Free Thought Project
    Tue, 16 May 2017 13:53 UTC



    The family of a 7-year-old boy with autism is demanding answers after their son was handcuffed and essentially disappeared for 6 days for acting out during class.

    The boy's arrest was captured on camera and has drawn much-needed attention as it circulates around social media. Police claim they handcuffed the boy for his own protection. However, several images of the incident show the boy standing there — entirely compliant.

    The incident happened last Tuesday at Gabe B. Allen Charter School in Dallas, Texas. The boy's mother received a call from school — like she has plenty of times in the past — notifying her to come pick up her son for acting out.

    However, when she arrived at school last Tuesday, her son was not there.

    As FOX 4 reports, she says it had become a familiar routine as her son is a special needs student and often has episodes causing him to act out. But last week, she says administrators told her he'd been taken to a mental facility to prevent harm to himself and to others.
    "My son was acting up, which he does every other day. My son was running, which he does every other day. My son was saying absurdities, which he does every other day. And just like every other day, I was called to go and pick him up that morning on a Tuesday morning. When I got there, 'Where's my baby?' 'Oh, he's not here.'"
    This poor family did not get their son back from the state facility until Monday — six days after police took him away. Naturally, police claim this was all done for the boy's safety.

    The Dallas ISD police department noted that they cannot discuss specifics of the case because of the boy's age. However, after the photo began to go viral on social media, they issued the following response.

    "The image you may have seen posted is of a student while he is being restrained to protect himself against any further harm," the statement said. "We ask for your help during this period to not continue to spread misinformation."

    Sharing a photo of a 7-year-old boy in handcuffs surrounded by massive police officers is hardly 'spreading misinformation.' These are the images society needs to see to help shake them out of this passive acceptance of the police state.

    In what world is it considered acceptable for police officers to handcuff a small child with autism at his school and then kidnap him for six days?

    The answer to that question is simple. It is not acceptable.

    Sadly, however, this country is beginning to accept more instances like this one as schools turn to police to solve everyday childhood problems.

    If teachers could not keep this little boy from hurting himself or others, then they have no business in that profession.

    According to an attorney for the family, they were told their little boy was held for this prolonged period of time until it was determined that he no longer presented a threat to himself after intervention efforts. Exactly what those 'intervention efforts' were, at the unknown facility, have yet to be determined. However, speculation, especially for those with children, is left to a nightmarish imagination.

    So far, the family has had to request a detailed account of why their son was handcuffed and kidnapped. They are also attempting to verify the training of the staff who allowed police to take a 7-year-old boy away from his family for nearly a week — to protect him.

    This is what public education looks like in a police state.

    Just in case there needs to be some emphasis placed as to those vested interests:

    Quote Posted by Hervé (here)
    [...]

    EDUCATION

    (
    Bertrand Russell, product of an old Illuminati family)

    Lord Bertrand Russell joined with the Frankfurt School in their effort at mass social engineering and spilled the beans in his 1951 book, The Impact of Science on Society.

    He wrote:
    'Physiology and psychology afford fields for scientific technique which still await development.' The importance of mass psychology "has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda. Of these the most influential is what is called 'education.' The social psychologists of the future will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black."
    Russell said education will affirm:
    "First, that the influence of home is obstructive.

    Second, that not much can be done unless indoctrination begins before the age of ten.

    Third, that verses set to music and repeatedly intoned are very effective.

    Fourth, that the opinion that snow is white must be held to show a morbid taste for eccentricity. But I anticipate. It is for future scientists to make these maxims precise and discover exactly how much it costs per head to make children believe that snow is black, and how much less it would cost to make them believe it is dark grey . When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen."
    Writing in 1992 in Fidelio Magazine, [The Frankfurt School and Political Correctness] Michael Minnicino observed how the heirs of Marcuse and Adorno now completely dominate the universities, 'teaching their own students to replace reason with 'Politically Correct' ritual exercises.

    There are very few theoretical books on arts, letters, or language which do not openly acknowledge their debt to the Frankfurt School. The witchhunt on today's campuses is merely the implementation of Marcuse's concept of 'repressive toleration'- 'tolerance for movements from the left, but intolerance for movements from the right'-enforced by the students of the Frankfurt School'.

    [...]
    ... so... you are still operating under the mistaken belief that snow defines the color "white"? Well, let me 'splain how US Aid works... and, guess who/what is holding the purse cordons/strings with respect to schools', colleges' and universities' State and Federal fundings...

    Indeed, echoing Plato’s Plan on how to create a new nation/World Order over a couple of generations like he did with the Bible.

    CIA Manufactured Modern US Literature

    henrymakow.com May 26, 2017



    Ernest Hemingway was a CIA agent. The CIA admits this on their own website . See Mathis' full expose .


    Miles Mathis says that modern culture is essentially mental programming by the CIA, an arm of the Illuminati banking cartel. The systemic destruction of traditional art is intended to promote "alienation," the satanic view that human life is inherently meaningless, incoherent, trivial and ugly.The satanist is the origin of the modern "anti hero" - the man who denies the moral order and therefore feels an outcast in society and in the universe.

    Satanism is the inversion of all spiritual ideals-

    Mathis:
    "By a constant stream of top-down propaganda, writers were convinced that being solipsistic, quotidian, and creatively modest were artistic virtues. As with painting, science, politics, and every other category, the inversion of the thing was sold as the thing itself."
    Makow comment- Mathis is a brilliant and prolific writer. Although his claims that many sensational murders were faked seem outlandish, his assertions about modern culture are credible. As a Ph.D. in literature, I always felt modern culture was fraudulent. This confirms it. I feel betrayed by the education system and society. An highly organizedsatanic cult has recast Western society in its image. Contrary views are not funded or publicized. Another example of de facto Communism, and how we have been unwittingly inducted into a
    satanic cult.
    Quote None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
    - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    by Miles Mathis from March 28, 2015
    From Theosophy to the Beat Generation
    (excerpt by henrymakow.com)

    A reader alerted me to an article just published at the Chronicle of Higher Education by an English professor at Providence College, Eric Bennett. This article is about the Iowa Writer's Workshop, at which he was a student from 1998 to 2000.



    He admits that the writing programs at the University of Iowa have long been underwritten by the CIA, via the Farfield Foundation, the ACCF, [The Artists and Community Collaboration Fund] and the Rockefellers.

    The sentence in the article that is most useful here is this one: Creative-writing pedagogues in the aftermath of World War II, without exception, read Partisan Review, The Kenyon Review, The Hudson Review, and The Sewanee Review .

    They breathed the intellectual air of New Critics, on the one hand, and New York intellectuals on the other. These camps, formerly enemy camps--Southern reactionaries and Northern socialists at each other's throats in the 1930s--had by the 50s merged into a liberal consensus that published highly intellectual, but at the time only newly "academic," essays in those four journals, all of which, like Iowa, were subsidized by the Rockefeller Foundation.

    As we have seen and will see, they were also subsidized by many other CIA front organizations. The government used the purse-strings to exert control over these programs, keeping them in little pens that Bennett says serve "to venerate and fortify the particular, the individual, the situated, the embedded, the irreducible."

    Or, in other words, to keep them small and disempowered. By a constant stream of top-down propaganda, writers were convinced that being solipsistic, quotidian, and creatively modest were artistic virtues. As with painting, science, politics, and every other category, the inversion of the thing was sold as the thing itself.

    A 2012 Salon article by Joel Whitney tells us the Partisan Review and the Paris Review [were linked to the CIA] as well.

    Peter Matthiessen, the magazine's founder, has now admitted that in interviews, such as this one ... that he was recruited by the CIA right out of Yale in 1953, and that the Paris Review was his "cover." That information has been added to the Paris Review page at Wikipedia, but it is a bald admission with no commentary as to how it must affect everything to do with the magazine.



    Both Matthiessen and George Plimpton (above) have tried to maintain that Matthiessen was the only one who knew, but--given what we now know from the CIA itself (see Tom Braden)--that isn't believable in the least. When various writers were pleading ignorance back in the 1960's and 70's, Braden flipped the leak, outing them .

    He said that all these writers and artists knew exactly what was going on, and [Francis Storer] Saunders' book [The Cultural Cold War] confirms that over and over. So does the article at Salon , which outs both Plimpton and Nelson Aldrich as members of the [CIA-front] ACCF.

    INDOCTRINATION

    Salon also tells us the CIA backing was a problem: "By funding a magazine with a New York office that was distributed in the U.S., it was engaged in propagandizing to the American public, which was illegal ."

    Unfortunately, Joel Whitney at Salon unmasks himself at the end--if not long before--by saying this: None of which is fair to attach to the Paris Review , if not for Matthiessen's claims that the Review 's ties ended before the ugly stuff, or for Plimpton's failure to disclose the ties that remained.

    So in his summation, Whitney is telling you to your face that the greatest crime here is failure to disclose and other white lies? You have to be kidding me! What about the fact that all this was illegal? What about the fact that nothing was what we were told it was?

    William Styron said in the first issue, "I think The Paris Review should welcome these people into its pages: the good writers and good poets, the non-drumbeaters and non-axe-grinders. So long as they're good."

    We now know that was total, malicious misdirection, since the whole point of all these magazine was drum-beating.

    What about the fact that, all told, at least 9/10ths of 20th century American literature and criticism should now be suspected of being manufactured?

    If all these people were working for Intelligence, what is to prevent us from assuming everything they did was Intelligence work, including the novels, poems, and essays?

    What is to prevent us from re-reading everything published in that time period, combing it for covert propaganda? You may not think that is necessary, but I for one do.

    As you will see in upcoming papers, I have found evidence that is exactly what has happened. It is not just the Beats that are fake, it is almost everyone.

    First Comment by Dan:

    The fact that 20th Century American "Literature" had a hidden agenda explains the cognitive dissonance most young readers felt while reading it. This website reviewed the mysterious J.D.Salinger's 'Catcher in the Rye' [1], one of the most disappointing reading experiences of all American high students that were forced to read it. That's one of the most obvious cases of a crappy novel with no redeeming qualities at all remaining the 'Best Sellers' list for decades, lauded by reviewers. Evidently the only students who couldn't put it down were the twin assassins of 1980, John Hinkley and Mark David Chapman.

    I read Miles Mathis' The Stolen Century this morning. I give it A+. 'Modernism' was concocted by Marxists. Marx wrote that 'cultural hegemony'(dominance) is the key to taking over. Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937) developed strategies for unseating the 'traditional' intelligentsia and replacing them with "organic" (subversives). This is when the arts became strictly political vehicles of cultural subversion. Trotsky became the grand master of what Marxists later termed the "Long March" through the society's institutions, in order to flip cultural hegemony from the 'old world order' to the 'new'. It's called the Long March because it takes time - a long time. They've been at it for over century, and now they've moved on from Modernism into "Postmodernism".

    I understood the fact that the publishing industry has this hidden agenda far too late in life. 30 years ago I read the New York Times Book Review every Sunday - religiously. With retrospect it's plain as day how the 'best sellers' all my quasi-intellectual friends regurgitating over quiche and Chardonnay corralled our world view, our opinions, and even our self-image.

    We all read the same books, saw the same movies, listened to the same bands and singers, watched CBS news and listened to National Public Radio and thought we were oh so smart. The whole things was sold on "snob appeal". That's how these things were marketed.

    It took the 911 stunt to finally crumble that world view they constructed in my "open mind" for forty years. I had to go through a year of dealing with "everything I knew was WRONG", but when you can throw off all that conditioning, you get to reconstruct a worldview based on observation of everything as a mature, objective person.

    One learns to discern. Eventually. I quit going to Hollywood movies about ten years ago, threw the TV out of my house seven years ago, and now most of the books I read were published before Modernism took over.

    The Transgender Boondoggle

    Henry Makow, June 27, 2017


    Young man who flirted with transgenderism exposes the scam.

    It costs over $100K, not counting a lifetime of hormones etc. Increasingly, this burden is falling on taxpayers.
    "[Gender doubting] people are cash cows for the medical industry. Unfortunately, there are not a lot actual transgender people in the world today. So why not make more? I think that big pharma is shilling forums and paying off doctors and therapists to convince people that they need these hormones."

    ----------------------------------------------------

    From Reddit June 23 by PineappleExpress98

    As someone who has seen a “gender therapist” and was on a waiting list for hormone replacement therapy, I think there is more to the transgender movement than meets the eye.

    Apologies for my terrible writing, I'm really tired/sick right now.

    Hi. I've never been much of a conspiracy theorist, but after thinking about things that happened to me a few years ago, I think I may have nearly been taken advantage of by nefarious actions from the pharmaceutical industry. I really want to get the word out, and find other people with similar experiences, and this sub seems like a good place to start.

    I went to a very stereotypical high school, with all the standard cliques and **** you would expect. I was, and still am, not a very masculine person and because of this I didn't fit in.

    I was far more interested in music, fashion, anime and film than sports or "getting pussy", which made me an outcast. As a result, I struggled with self esteem issues, and generally was confused and annoyed for most of this time. Then, when I was 17, I found something that made my life make sense: transgender forums. These websites told me that my feelings were classic transgender feelings, and that I needed treatment immediately.

    Over the next years I began the process of changing my gender. I saw a "gender therapist, attending support groups, and even put myself on the waiting list for female hormones. Then, when I went to University, I got a wakeup call. There were loads of guys like me, who may not act like the "manly man" ideal, but still have no intention to change their gender. That's when I realized that I was going down a dark path, and quickly abandoned the idea of me wanting to become a girl.

    During my year in the transgender world, I noticed some things that made me uncomfortable. The following is common rhetoric from support groups, forums and therapists.

    1) Everyone who feels confused is transgender. If you make a single post on a transgender forum saying you think you might be trans, you will be validated in those feelings. No matter what the story, whether it's about enjoying "female" interests, or something that sounds more like a sexual fetish than a legit medical condition, you are trans according to the users.

    2) Any gender non-conforming is proof of trans status. Like certain movies, music or TV? You are trans. Like wearing bright colored clothes? You are trans. Have more female than male friends? You are trans.

    3) You are trans, and don't trust anyone who says otherwise. The most common complaint on these websites is that doctors are "gatekeeping" them. Anyone who doubts you in your feelings is evil, and you should lie and cheat your way into getting the treatment you "need".

    Asking questions is evil and dangerous". Trans people commit suicide all the time, and asking any questions about trans ideology just makes the problem worse. Accept what we say, or gtfo.

    4) If you are trans, you are amazing. Trans people love boosting their own and each other's egos. When you are a depressed teenager who doesn't fit in, this can be huge.

    So where's the conspiracy?

    When someone takes the hormones they need for "treatment", they prescribe to expensive medication for life, one that requires lots of medical attention. These people are cash cows for the medical industry. Unfortunately, there are not a lot actual transgender people in the world today. So why not make more? I think that big pharma is shilling forums and paying off doctors and therapists to convince people that they need these hormones.

    The average trans person, when discussing their time before transition, fits a simple mold. An awkward nerdy teenager who doesn't act like a stereotypical manly guy and doesn't fit in with jocks and "tough guys".

    However, that description probably describes a large portion of the population. That's where the medical company's take advantage of people.

    By convincing completely normal and healthy people that they need help during a low point in their lives.

    High school sucks for people like me, but once you leave it gets better. University and the real world isn't high school. But pharmaceutical companies are convincing people that the problem isn't that high school sucks, but instead they are suffering from a serious medical problem, and they need treatment now.

    What are your thoughts on my theory? Do I have a point, or am I just rambling?

    Bezmenov- West Capitulated to Communist Subversion

    Henry Makow. July 14, 2017


    Communism is the outgrowth of the Protocols of Zion

    This excerpt from a crucial 1985 interview with KGB Defector Yuri Bezmenov throws our predicament into stark relief.

    Essentially "our perception of reality" has been changed so we mistake evil for good, and embrace our own destruction.

    By evil, I am referring to Zionism, globalism, feminism, liberalism, abolition of Christianity, gender, sexual degeneracy, family, in a word Communism, i.e. Cabalism (Jewish satanism.) Protocols 16 says society will be inducted into "our faith".

    Bezmenov explained that liberals, "social justice warriors" and antifa will be lined up and shot because, when they realize they have been duped, they will represent a threat. He says that once people are brainwashed, you cannot make them see the light until they are made to suffer. This certainly applies to most liberals and Jews today. In retrospect, the Vietnam War was key [to] this process of national subversion.

    Another point of interest, Bezmenov says the USSR was sustained by Western governments, banks and corporations, (i.e. central banks) which means the West is already subverted. This is the Deep State. Trump is a maverick who recognized he could seize power by promising Americans a stay of execution.

    Bezmenov's KGB job had been to convince foreigners the USSR was a worker's paradise when in fact it was a brutal police state detested by its citizens. He implies that this is in store for the West. He defected in 1970.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    Interview between Yuri Bezmenov & Edward Griffin
    (Excerpts by henrymakow.com)

    Bezmenov--"But in reality, the main emphasis of the KGB is not in the area of intelligence at all... only about fifteen percent of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other eighty-five percent is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, or active measures, (~Activitia perionachia, in the language of the KGB), or psychological warfare. What it basically means is to change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent that despite the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interests of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country. It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages. The first one being demoralization.

    It takes from fifteen to twenty years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years which requires to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of the enemy. In other words Marxist-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students without being challenged or counter-balanced by the basic values of Americanism, American patriotism. ...

    Yuri Bezmenov: They serve purpose only at the stage of destabilization of a nation. For example, your Leftists in the United States, all these professors and all these beautiful civil rights defender, they are instrumental in the process of subversion, only to destabilize the nation. When the job is completed, they are none, they are not needed any more. They know too much. Some of them, when they see the Marxist-Leninists come to power, obviously, they get offended. They think that they will come to power. That will never happen, of course. They will be lined up against the wall and shot. But, they may turn into the most bitter enemies of Marxist-Leninism when they come to power. ... The moment they serve their purpose, all these useful idiots are used, either be executed entirely, or exiled or put in prison. Many former Marxists [...] in Cuba, are in prison.




    So, basically, you in America are stuck with demoralization. And unless, even if you start right now, here this minute, educating a new generation of Americans, it will still take fifteen or twenty years to turn the tide of ideological perception of reality and normalcy and patriotism.

    The result? The result you can see. Most of the people who graduated in the sixties, dropouts or half-baked intellectuals are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, educational system. You are stuck with them. You cannot get rid of them. They are contaminated. They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern. You cannot change their mind even if you expose them to authentic information. Even if you prove that white is white and black is black. You cannot change the basic perception and illogical behavior. In other words, these people, the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To rid society of these people you need another twenty or fifteen years to educate a new generation of patriotically-minded and [...] common sense people who would be acting in favor and in the interests of United States society....



    The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already. For the last thirty-five years. Actually, it is over-fulfilled because demoralization reaches such areas where previously, not even Comrade Andropov [1911-1984] and all his experts would even dream of such a tremendous success. Most of it is done by Americans to Americans, thanks to lack of moral standards. As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter any more. A person who is demoralized is unable to assess true information. The facts tell nothing to him. Even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents, with pictures. Even if I take him, by force, to the Soviet Union and show him concentration camp, he will refuse to believe it until he is going to receive a kick in his fat bottom. When the military boot crashes his, then he will understand. But not before that. That is the tragedy of this situation of demoralization.

    The next stage is destabilization. This time, the subverter does not care about your ideas, the patterns of your consumption, whether you eat junk food and get fat and flabby. It doesn't matter anymore. This time, and it only takes from two to five years to destabilize a nation, what matters is essentials, economy, foreign relations, defense systems. And you can see it quite clearly in sensitive areas as defense and economy. The Marxist-Leninist ideas in the United States is absolutely fantastic. I could never have believed i[t] fourteen years ago [1971] when I landed in this part of the world that the process would go that fast.

    The next stage is crisis. It may take only six weeks to bring a country to the verge of crisis. You see it in Central America now. And after crisis, with a violent change in power, structure, and economy, you have the period of so-called normalization will last indefinitely. Normalization is a cynical expression borrowed from Soviet propaganda. When the Soviet tanks moved into Czechoslovakia in '68, Brezhnev said, 'now brother Czechoslovakia is normalized.' This is what will happen in the United States if you allow all these schmucks to promise all the goodies and paradise on earth to destabilize your economy, to eliminate the principle of free market competition, and to put a big brother government in Washington, D.C. with benevolent dictators like Walter Mondale who will promise lots of things, never mind if they are fulfilled or not. He will go to Moscow to kiss the bottoms of the new generation of Soviet assassins. Never mind. He will create false illusions that the situation is under control. Situation is not under control. Situation is disgustingly out of control.

    Most politicians, media, and educational system frames another generation who think they are living at the peace time. False. The United States is in a state of war against the basic principles and the foundations of this system.

    And the initiator of this war is not comrade Andropov of course. It's the system. However ridiculous it may sound, the world Communist system, the world Communist conspiracy. Whether I scare some people or not, I don't give a hoot. If you are not scared by now, nothing can scare you. But you don't have to be paranoid about it. What actually happens now, that unlike myself you have literally several years to live on unless the United States wake up. The time bomb is ticking. Every second the disaster is coming closer and closer. Unlike myself, you will have nowhere to defect to, unless you want to live in Antarctica with penguins. This is the last country of freedom and possibility.

    G. Edward Griffin: OK, what do we do? What is your recommendation to the American people?

    Yuri Bezmenov: The immediate thing that comes to my mind, of course, there must be an immediate, very strong national effort to educate people in the spirit of real patriotism, number one. Number two, explain the real danger of socialist, Communist, whatever welfare state, big brother government. If people will fail to grasp the impending danger of their development, nothing ever can help United States. You might kiss goodbye to your freedoms, including freedoms to homosexuals, prison inmates, all this freedom will vanish, evaporate in five seconds, including your precious life.

    The second thing, the moment at least part of the United States is convinced that the danger is real, they have to force the American government, and I'm not talking about sending letters, signing petitions and all these beautiful noble activity. I'm talking about forcing the United States government to stop aiding Communist government.

    Has the English Translation of Udo Ulfkotte's "Journalists for Hire" Been Suppressed?

    James F. Tracy Global Research
    Tue, 01 Aug 2017 13:27 UTC


    Udo Ulfkotte

    The English translation of German journalist Udo Ulfkotte's best-selling book, Gekaufte Journalisten (Bought Journalists) appears to have been suppressed throughout North America and Europe. On May 15, 2017 Next Revelation Press, an imprint of US-Canadian-based publisher Tayen Lane, released the English version of Bought Journalists, under the title,Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News.

    Tayen Lane has since removed any reference to the title from its website. Correspondingly Amazon.com indicates the title is "currently unavailable," with opportunities to purchase from independent sellers offering used copies for no less than $1309.09. The book's subject matter and unexplained disappearance from the marketplace suggest how powerful forces are seeking to prevent its circulation.

    Gekaufte Journalisten was almost completely ignored by mainstream German news media following its release in 2014. "No German mainstream journalist is allowed to report about [my] book," Ulfkotte observed. "Otherwise he or she will be sacked. So we have a bestseller now that no German journalist is allowed to write or talk about."{1]

    Along these lines, publication of the English translation was repeatedly delayed. When this author contacted Ulfkotte in early December 2015 to inquire on the book's pending translation, he responded, "Please find the link to the English edition here,"

    http://www.tayenlane.com/bought-journalists

    The above address once providing the book's description and anticipated publication date now leads to an empty page.[2] Tayen Lane has not responded to emails or telephone calls requesting an explanation for the title's disappearance.

    When a book publisher determines that it has acquired a politically volatile or otherwise "troublesome" title it may embark on a process recognized in the industry as "privishing." "Privishing is a portmanteau meaning to privately publish, as opposed to true publishing that is open to the public," writes investigative journalist Gerald Colby.
    It is usually employed in the following context: "We privished the book so that it sank without a trace." The mechanism used is simple: cut off the book's life-support system by reducing the initial print run so that the book "cannot price profitably according to any conceivable formula," refuse to do reprints, drastically slash the book's advertising budget, and all but cancel the promotional tour."[3]
    Privishing often takes place without the author knowing, simply because it involves breach of contract and potential liability. Tayen Lane will likely not face any legal challenge in this instance, however. Ulfkotte died of a heart attack on January 13, 2017, at age 56.[4]

    Udo Ulfkotte was a prominent European journalist, social scientist, and immigration reform activist. Upon writing Gekaufte Journalisten and becoming one of the most significant media industry and deep state whistleblowers in recent history, Ulfkotte complained of repeated home searches by German state police and expressed fear for his own life. He also admitted previous health complications stemming from witnessing a 1988 poisoned gas attack in Iraqi Kurdistan.

    Ulfkotte's testimony of how intelligence agencies figure centrally in Western journalism is especially compelling because he for many years functioned in the higher echelons of mainstream newsworkers. The German journalist explains how he was recruited during the 1980s to work in espionage. This began through an invitation proffered by his graduate school advisor for an all-expense-paid trip to attend a two-week seminar on the Cold War conflict in Bonn.

    After Ulfkotte obtained his doctorate he was given a job as a reporter at "the leading conservative German newspaper, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, oddly appointed despite no journalistic training and hundreds of other applicants. Serving as a correspondent throughout the Middle East, Ulfkotte eventually became acquainted with agents from the CIA, German intelligence agency Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND), Britain's MI6, and Israel's Mossad, all of whom valued his ability to travel freely in countries largely closed to the West. His editors readily collaborated in such intelligence gathering operations,"[5] for which journalist possess "non-official cover" by virtue of their profession.

    "Non-official cover" occurs when a journalist is essentially working for the CIA, but it's not in an official capacity," Ulfkotte explains.

    "This allows both parties to reap the rewards of the partnership, while at the same time giving both sides plausible deniability. The CIA will find young journalists and mentor them. Suddenly doors will open up, rewards will be given, and before you know it, you owe your entire career to them. That's essentially how it works."[6] He likewise ruefully admits to "publishing articles under my own name written by agents of the CIA and other intelligence services, especially the German secret service."[7]
    Ulfkotte's insider knowledge of the relationship between mainstream media and the intelligence community has special relevance in terms of informing the CIA's antipathy toward Wikileaks, as well as the media campaign centering on the Trump administration's alleged "ties to Russia," while also lending credence to Trump's frequent claims of the US media's political biases and deep state ties. Indeed, Ulfkotte "Tweeted" about these very subjects just two days before he passed.

    11:42 AM - 11 Jan 2017
    Ulfkotte's explosive revelations still have the potential to further intensify the much-deserved scrutiny corporate news media presently face. In a society that pays more than lip service to freedom of thought and expression Journalists for Hire would be required reading for college students-and particularly those studying in journalism programs intending to seek employment in the media industries.

    In fact, journalism professors, some of whom have migrated to the academy following long careers at renowned news outlets, possess similar insider knowledge of the relationships Ulfkotte readily explains. As both journalists and educators they have a twofold burden of responsibility. This is the case more so than ever because the entire professional and intellectual enterprise they are engaged in (and one directly linked to the nation's accelerating civic deterioration) has been made a farce. Journalists for Hire's suppression suggests how Ulfkotte's posthumous censors refuse for this important examination and cleansing to proceed.

    Jordan Peterson temporarily banned by Google and YouTube, no justification given

    Rob Shimshock The Daily Caller
    Tue, 01 Aug 2017 16:48 UTC



    A professor in Canada who refuses to use gender-neutral pronouns and criticizes social justice issues was banned from using his Google and YouTube accounts Tuesday, regaining access hours later with no detailed explanation provided.

    Professor Jordan B. Peterson of the University of Toronto disputed Google and YouTube's decision to lock him out of his accounts, according to correspondence obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

    "Please tell me what principle I have violated," said Peterson in his email to Google upon discovering that he was locked out of his account. "I have not violated any terms that I am aware of and have not misused my account."

    The psychology professor has over 350,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, which he uses as a platform to post his lectures, interviews, and Q&As.

    "We understand you've recently been unable to access your Google account, and we appreciate you contacting us," said Google in a response. "After review, your account is not eligible to be reinstated due to a violation of our Terms of Service."

    But Google did not provide any details regarding which rule the professor violated.

    When emailed at his Google address, Google returns an "Address not found" error message.

    "I've had that account for the last, say, 15 years," said Peterson to TheDCNF. "All of my correspondence is in that account. It's hundreds of thousands of emails from people all over the world."

    The professor said he initially thought it was just a mistake.

    "But the fact that they reviewed it and then decided that my account is not eligible to be reinstated indicates to me either that this is quite a curious mistake or that there's something that's political going on that is associated with censorship."

    Peterson reiterated that he had not violated the terms of service, stating that he had only recently posted a video detailing his plans for the future. The professor said that he could not

    "This is just another example of these big companies that either [kowtow] to pressure...or deciding on their own accord who gets to communicate and who doesn't," he told TheDCNF.

    Peterson's YouTube videos criticizing social justice regularly obtain tens or hundreds of thousands of views. The professor came under scrutiny in 2016 after criticizing a bill which could potentially criminalize using the wrong gender pronoun to identify someone. That bill is now law.

    (UPDATE: Peterson reported that he regained access to his Google and YouTube accounts shortly after the publication of this piece, but the company still has not provided the professor with specific reasoning for his ban.)


    SOTT Comment: Google tries to pretend they're impartial, but they're not. They regularly censor political speech on YouTube, and they get away with it. The only thing holding them back is bad publicity. Perhaps Peterson just has too big an audience - witness the almost immediate publication of the above DC article.

    Most "big platform" sites and services (YouTube, Patreon, PayPal, Twitter) coincidentally have the same politics. In general: anti-Russian, anti-Assad, pro-Israeli, anti-Trump, pro-Ukraine, etc. Get the picture? Questioning the official groupthink is verboten.

    A pirating service for academic journal articles could bring down the whole establishment

    Keith Collins Qz
    Fri, 28 Jul 2017 11:29 UTC


    "Remove all barriers in the way of science." © Sci-Hub

    The subscription fees charged by academic publishers have risen so high in recent years that even wealthy American universities have said they can't afford them. When Harvard Library reported its subscription costs had reached $3.5 million per year in a 2012 memo, for example, it said the fees were "fiscally unsustainable," and the university asked its faculty to stop publishing research in journals that keep articles behind paywalls.

    But regardless of where Harvard researchers have published their work since then, it's likely that all of it is currently available for free on Sci-Hub, a rogue pirating service for academic research. According to a new study, Sci-Hub contains 68.9% of all academic research. More to the point: 85.2% of all papers originally published behind paywalls are available on the website for free. And even if a given article isn't already available in Sci-Hub's repository, the site can quickly fetch it using donated credentials for services like JSTOR, Elsevier, and Sage.

    Sci-Hub was founded in 2011 by Alexandra Elbakyan, a Kazakh national who lives in Russia. The website, originally at sci-hub.org, has been forced by court orders and law enforcement to change its domain address several times, and is now available on the dark web and over the encrypted messaging app Telegram. The operation is primarily funded through bitcoin donations.

    Data scientist Daniel Himmelstein of the University of Pennsylvania, who conducted the new study, concluded that Sci-Hub's extensive catalogue is making the subscription publishing model "unsustainable."
    "For the first time, the overwhelming majority of scholarly literature is available gratis to anyone with an Internet connection," he writes.
    That's as it should be, advocates of open research say. They argue, among other things, that a substantial portion of the research that publishers attempt to lock behind paywalls was funded with grants paid for by taxpayers, and that the public should therefore have unfettered access to it.

    Meanwhile, the publishers aren't going down without a fight. The publisher Elsevier sued Sci-Hub, claiming copyright infringement, in 2011-and a New York district court ruled last month that Elsevier is owed $15 million in damages.

    Sott Exclusive: Beyond Islamophobia: The Truth About Salafism and Jihadism

    Chris Kanthan Sott.net
    Wed, 23 Aug 2017 13:30 UTC



    Many Americans don't talk about Islam for the fear of being labeled Islamophobic. When logical and factual discussions are avoided, only simplistic and extreme positions prevail. Thus there are people on the far right who totally fear Islam, and there are people on the left who can only repeat clichés such as, "Islam has nothing to do with terrorism." Here's a quick overview of Islam and the elements within Islam that give rise to extremism and terrorism.

    First of all, it's not easy to generalize Islam, since there are different sects and theological beliefs. Add in factors such as culture, region and time period, and the concept becomes more nuanced. Thus, the liberal-urban-Syrian-1990s-Shiite Islam will be very different from the ultra-conservative-rural-Saudi-1940s-Sunni Islam.

    Sunni v. Shiite
    Broadly speaking, there are two major divisions in Islam: Sunni and Shiite. Within both, there are different schools of thoughts and subsects. Although they both follow the Quran, the Sunnis also use Hadiths, which are compilations of what Mohammed allegedly said and did.

    Historically, the division of Sunni versus Shiite is based on disagreements about the successor of prophet Mohammed. It's a family feud between Mohammed's father-in-law and son-in-law. Sunnis for the former and Shiites for the latter. The son-in-law (Ali) was assassinated by Sunni caliphs during Ramadan. Thus it's not a coincidence that Shiites are still attacked by Sunni terrorists every year during Ramadan.

    Radical Sunnis claim that Shiites aren't even Muslims. In Syria, most rebels are Sunni extremists and they have massacred Shiite civilians and destroyed Shiite shrines. The biggest conflict in the Middle East is between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and it's a Sunni-Shiite power struggle. Saudi Arabia's biggest fear, as exposed by Wikileaks, is the "Shiite Crescent" of Iran-Iraq-Syria-Lebanon. It's no surprise then that the Saudi/USA-funded jihadi groups like 'ISIS' in Syria and Iraq have attacked shia populations and shrines. It's a proxy war for regional dominance, with a potential Iran, Iraq, Syria and Russian alliance on one side against Saudia Arabia and the USA on the other.

    In terms of demographics, 85% of the Muslims in the world are Sunnis.

    Wahhabism, Salafism and Jihadist-Salafism
    These are three important terms that drive geopolitical Islam. Wahhabism refers to the Saudi-version of Sunni Islam. Named after an Islamic preacher of the 18th century, it's extremely dogmatic and puritanical. Salafism is almost identical to Wahhabism in terms of theology and doctrine. Both insist upon a society that mirrors what Mohammed and his companions did back in the 7th century.

    Then there are Jihadist-Salafists who want to defend and spread Salafism through jihad. By "jihad," they don't mean "internal spiritual struggle", they mean armed conflicts, guerilla warfare and terrorism. These are the people who originally came out of the Mujahideen project in Afghanistan. We can thank Saudi Arabia and the CIA for these violent Islamists who are now the biggest threat to the stability of nations around the world.

    Almost all the terrorist groups around the world are Jihadist Salafists. Al Qaeda, ISIS, most 'Syrian rebel' groups, Boko Haram (Nigeria), Al Shabaab (in Somalia), Abu Sayyaf (in Philippines), Taliban etc. are all the same soup in different bowls.

    Salafism and their Extreme Sharia Law
    The practice of Islam in any nation has meant a merger of state and religion from the very beginning of Islam. Around the world today, there is a spectrum of Sharia Laws. Most Islamic countries use similar civil Sharia Laws for family-related issues. Wahhabism in Saudi Arabia uses laws straight out of the Quran and Hadiths for criminal laws as well. This is why there are beheadings, crucifixions, amputations, stoning of women etc.

    In Saudi Arabia, women are second-class citizens. For her entire life, a Saudi woman lives under a male guardian - either her father or husband. A woman cannot go to school, get a job, travel or even marry without written permission from her male guardian. Of course, women cannot drive a car at all and they get arrested if they don't cover themselves from head to toe in public. Here's a good article on the abysmal conditions under which Saudi women live. Two other extreme Sharia Law practices that hurt Muslim women a lot are child marriages and female genital mutilation.

    Under Salafism, it's permissible to kill Muslims who leave Islam, kill anyone who denigrates the Quran or the prophet, kill atheists, kill gays, kill adulterers, kill people for pre-marital sex ... and that's a partial list. Again, we should note that Saudia Arabis is the main exponent of this type of Islam, and Saudi Arabia is fully supported by the USA.

    Salafism has been spreading to moderate Muslim countries over the last 30 years. For example, in Indonesia, new Sharia police are stopping women for "tight jeans" and forcing them into Sharia-compliant dress. People - including Christians - are being publicly caned for non-Islamic activities such as selling alcohol or an unmarried girl simply hanging out with a male friend. In Pakistan, a college student was attacked and murdered by other students for posting something on Facebook that was construed to be blasphemy. In some parts of Turkey, which used to be a very secular country, women are being randomly attacked by strangers for not dressing modestly. In another case, extremists savagely attacked young men in Istanbul for drinking beer during Ramadan.

    Salafists don't integrate when they come to the West. Muslim women still suffer under Sharia courts in the U.K. Undercover documentaries have revealed Saudi-funded mosques in Europe and the U.S. preaching what is indisputably bigotry, misogyny, anti-Semitism and homophobia.

    No Political Correctness in Salafism

    While Americans and Europeans are warned about Islamophobia, there are no similar sentiments towards tolerance of Western religions or values in Salafism. Saudi Arabia explicitly prohibits non-Muslim places of worship; in Qatar, churches have to be very discreet and not display a cross. In Brunei, Christians are not allowed to openly celebrate Christmas; no Santa Claus or Christmas trees are allowed in public. In Pakistan, churches, Hindu temples, and even Shiite mosques are often bombed. To add to the depravity, the terrorists choose major religious days such as Easter to maximize the deaths and terrorize the minority religions who make up 3% of the population.

    In Egypt, churches have been bombed repeatedly for many years; in one town, all the Christians were persecuted and driven out; a few months ago, a bus on its way to a monastery was stopped and all the Christians were massacred in cold blood. In Indonesia, a popular Christian governor of the capital city, Jakarta, was jailed for two years for merely saying that the Quran doesn't prohibit people from voting for a non-Muslim. In the Philippines and in Syria, Jihadist Salafists have destroyed and burned down numerous churches (video #1, video #2). The US and Saudi-backed 'Arab Spring' in Syria turned into a 'Christian Winter' as thousands of Christians were massacred by Salafists.

    From Salafism to Jihadist Salafism
    Most Americans don't realize that fanatical Imams casually spread terrorist messages on national televisions in the Middle East. Here's a video where an Imam talks about what happens when Muslims invade and take over a land of infidels. He talks about how all property, including men, women and children, belong to the Muslims. He goes on to discuss the details of a slave market and how to sell the infidels/Kafirs. This is a barbaric message that doesn't belong in the modern world, but it does resonate with Salafist groups like ISIS who actually perform such atrocities.

    Here's another popular Imam in Iraq who says, "Yes, Islam was spread by the sword. Yes, we invade, kill and enslave. So what? That's what Allah commands us to do and that's what Mohammed did."

    Bin Laden himself used Quran verses 9:73, 5:51, 8:39, 8:60 and 8:12, which say (to paraphrase), "Non-Muslims are evil, so fight them; don't take Jews and Christians to be your friends; fight the non-Muslims until everyone follows Islam; do whatever is within your power to terrify the enemy; and God will cast terror in the hearts of non-Muslims, so behead them."

    Even the killing of women and children are justified by Jihadists who claim that Mohammed gave permission to do so during a war.

    The Master Plan for Indoctrination
    Saudi Arabia has created a worldwide army of zealots using mosques and schools. This is a massive project that costs billions of dollars every year. In the 1980's, as a part of the Mujahideen project, Saudi Arabia established thousands of Islamic schools - known as Madrassas - for poor people in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The real goal was to brainwash the kids to become jihadists. It was so successful that in the last 30 years, Saudi Arabia has built tens of thousands of Islamic schools all over the world, including Europe, US, Canada and Australia.



    Syria is a perfect example for how Saudi-funded institutions can become powerful tools to overthrow governments. After Assad Sr. banned the Muslim Brotherhood, Saudi mosques were secretly established in Syria in the 1990's. Over the next twenty years, Salafist jihadis from Syria and many other nations started a civil war with money, weapons and training from the USA and Saudi Arabia.

    In areas held by Al Qaeda in Syria, Islamic camps indoctrinate kids to become suicide bombers. Saudi preachers go to Syria, recruit kids to become suicide bombers, and proudly post pictures on social media. A Salafist Syrian rebel even sent his own 8-year-old daughter as a suicide bomber to destroy a police station in Damascus.

    Conclusion
    When US politicians and media talk about poverty being the source of Islamic terrorism, they're only partially right, but they deliberately hide the puppet masters - Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Israelis and the CIA - who invest vast amount of money and efforts to recruit and convert people into Salafists and jihadists.

    Islam needs a major reformation, especially Sunni Islam that has been hijacked by Salafism and Wahhabism, which insist that everyone live as if we are all tribal desert warriors from the 7th century. From the 1920s until 1980, Islamic countries around the world eagerly embraced westernization and enlightenment. Then fundamentalists took over and have caused enormous suffering all over the world.

    Can anyone turn the clock back and make the Muslim world great again?

    Matrix Revealed: Why logic disappeared

    By Jon Rappoport Aug 31, 2017

    Over the past year, I’ve been in communication with several teachers who are telling me about the descent into more social programming in school classrooms.

    From so-called environmental agendas, to discussions about gender orientation and choice of gender identity, to sex education, to teaching about “liberalism,” the indoctrination is getting thicker and deeper.

    This whole mind-engineering approach would suffer a devastating blow if logic were introduced into the curriculum, particularly at an early age.

    One prime factor becomes clear the moment a student explores logic as a formal subject. That factor is THE PREMISE.

    Deductive arguments begin from premises, also known as assumptions or givens.

    Although logic focuses on the process of reasoning launched from the premises, there is no way to avoid looking at these basic assumptions, once the student learns how to find them.

    “Is this premise true?”


    “Does it make sense?”

    And then all bets are off, because social programming is short on reasoning and long on givens.

    That’s how mind-programming is done—by pouring assumptions into the student.

    Once he begins to look at them, study them, consider them, assess them, he is SEPARATE FROM THEM.

    He can then gauge their truth or falsity.

    He can decide whether they’re grounded in fact, or are merely arbitrary notions designed to forward an ideology.

    At that point, the roof caves in on the programmers.

    This is one reason I designed a basic introductory logic course for high-school students and included it in my collection, The Matrix Revealed.

    Students should have the opportunity to experience analyzing passages of text. They should learn what that process does for them, how it wakes them up and eventually makes them independent.

    Educators are aware that treading on the path of logic endangers what they are covertly putting into students’ heads.

    That’s why logic has disappeared.

    That’s why it needs to come back.

    Shepherded by parents.

    Every home is a civilization.
