Israel Police Attack Mourners Carrying Casket of Palestinian-American Journalist Shireen Abu Akleh

funeral

Two days after Israeli forces shot and killed Al-Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh, they beat mourners carrying the slain journalist's coffin.  The Israeli police, in full riot gear, confronted the funeral procession carrying Abu Akleh’s body outside the St Louis French Hospital in occupied East Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood. Several videos show the Israeli police hitting the people carrying the casket with clubs, nearly causing the body to be dropped.  https://twitter.com/HindHassanNews/status/1525081189102628866 Israel police claim that Palestinians began rioting before the...

The Biggest Lie of American Foreign Policy

https://youtu.be/gPItOqn8apA Then the fighters realized that the gang in the White House could not see things clearly, and that their leader (that idiot they obey) was claiming that we envied their lifestyle — when the truth, which this Pharaoh would like to hide — is that we are attacking them because of their injustice toward the Muslim world, and especially Palestine and Iraq, as well as their occupation of the land of the two sanctuaries. When the fighters saw this, they decided to come out of the shadows and take the fight into their territory, into their homes.  – Al Qaeda in Its...

4.17templemount

Israeli police attacked Palestinian protesters and journalists on the Temple Mount, leaving at least 152 injured from riot munitions, the Red Crescent reported.  Israeli forces began targeting Palestinian protesters at the al-Aqsa Mosque on Friday. According to the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), the police raid was carried out after Palestinians set up wooden barriers at the site and some firecrackers were thrown.  “Young men prepared wooden roadblocks around the al-Qibli prayer hall in anticipation of a possible Israeli occupation forces (IOF) raid,” the PCHR said. “They...

COI #212: Biden Is Using 1/6 as Propaganda for the New Terror War

coi212

On COI #212, Kyle Anzalone discusses the inflated claims of violence and insurrection regarding 1/6. By comparing the riot to 9/11 and Pearl Harbor, the administration is attempting to generate fear for their new domestic terror war.  Kyle talks about the lockdowns' impact on the global poor. A new study shows an increase in poverty - those living on less than $2 a day - for the first time in 20 years. Nearly 100 million people were added to the number of humans struggling to live.  Kyle updates the US occupation in Iraq. Over four straight days, US forces were targeted with rockets or...

TGIF: Pursue Your Happiness and Forget the Rest

pursuit

How about we do something novel in the new year? Let's stop worrying about the stuff most politicians, pundits, and activists want us to worry about and instead think about ourselves, our families, our friends, and whatever communities we choose to be part of. Let's forget about "the country" and the rest of the world. Let's individually pursue happiness. All I'm saying is that it's finally time for the politicians, bureaucrats, and know-it-all intelligentsia, left or right, to get out of the way and let us set our own agendas. Too self-centered? Well, too bad. Much evil results from...

Salafis Throwing Bombs: How American and British Planners Partnered With Al-Qaeda Affiliated Groups At the Start of the Syrian Civil War

2011 syria protests.svg

Introduction In the mainstream view, al-Qaeda did not play a role in the Syria conflict until Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi dispatched his deputy, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani, to Syria in August 2011 to establish a wing of the group there, called Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front. Additionally, al-Qaeda allegedly did not carry out any military operations until December 2011 and did not announce its establishment until January 2012. However, there is evidence that al-Qaeda affiliated militants were involved in the Syrian conflict much earlier. Saudi intelligence...

We Ended the War in Iraq (Yes Again, But Also Not Really)

2340862578 7c82db544b c

On Thursday, the Pentagon announced the formal end to the U.S. combat mission in Iraq, but all 2,500 troops that are currently in the country will stay in an advisory role. The Biden administration agreed with Iraq back in July to end the U.S. combat mission by the end of this year, and it was clear when the announcement was made that US troops would stay and nothing would really change. The Iraqi government has been under pressure to expel the U.S. since January 2020, when the U.S. killed Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani and Iraqi militia leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis in a drone strike in...

OSHA’s Vaccine Mandate Was Never Possible

osha 1024x259

On November 18, 2021 OSHA suspended enforcement of the Biden administration's vaccine mandate. According to a CBS News report, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will rely heavily on informants to help enforce the federal vaccine mandate. More significantly, the report asserts the federal government will have to rely on snitches because OSHA lacks the personnel to enforce the mandate itself. According to the report, the U.S. Department of Labor “will need a lot of help” enforcing the vaccine mandate. “Yet its Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)...

COI #149: Taliban Overruns Kabul, Dealing Fatal Blow to the US-Built Government

coi149

Major territorial gains that began in provincial centers earlier this month came to a head on August 15, with the militant group waltzing into the national capital and seizing the city, encountering virtually no resistance from government forces in the process. With Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fleeing the country, the Taliban has installed a new president from its own ranks, insisting there would be no transitional state as it declared the "Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan" as the new government.  Having failed to prepare for the fall of the capital, Washington is now overseeing a hasty,...
