The comparison between ‘Boston Marathon’ and 9/11

 

obama shit

In these modern times where you would think with technologies such as the internet that people would be more informed on global issues. The result of this is both negative and positive. The negative being that people listen and are only exposed to what is ‘handed’ to them .Through the medians of the internet,television and radio.

As I sat in my Modern history class I heard people chatting about a so called ‘terrorist attack’. All of a sudden my teacher asked the class, ‘Did you hear about what happened?’. A guy screamed out, the terrorist attack in boston!. As a person who doesn’t watch T.V due to many reasons. I hadn’t heard the news before this.

Automatically, The other students were even going as far as implying that it was a terrorist attack conducted by muslims. The continuos use by the media and in turn, the people the word ‘Terrorist’ has become synonymous with ‘Islam’.

Ethnic terrorism in the Middle east as well as terrorist attack conducted by organisations such as Al-Qeada are openly associated with religion.Just as in Northern Ireland terrorism was associated with ‘evangelical protestantism’

The political scientist Michael Barkun said:

The militia’ superficially secular ideology-the belief that constitutional government is threatened by clandestine political and economic forces-makes close and direct religious associations. These associations link the conspiracy with Satan’s struggle against god, the rise of the Anti-Christ, and the imminence of the end-times”.

Even the reporter on the ABC news, used the shock of 9/11 as a same thing as the Boston marathon. This subconsciously led to people making the assumption, that it was a terrorist attack by so called ‘muslims extremists’.

With no clear evidence or statement.It seems as though this might turn into an excuse to invade another country. Under false pretences.

A great insight on what is truly occurring in the Middle East and all other conflicts that are a ‘humanitarian cause’.

This was the original Daily Mail link for the article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2270219/U-S-planned-launch-chemical-weapon-attack-Syria-blame-Assad.html

Syria is not a war caused by ‘rebels’ within the country just as the Libya ‘revolution’ was not. They are part of a systematic fake ‘Arab Spring’ takeover of the whole of Africa and the Middle and Near East by forces working through the United States, Israel and NATO (all the same thing if you go high enough or deep enough). I have been exposing this plan in my books for years and what is now happening in Mali and planned for country after country in Africa orchestrated through the US AFRICOM network is all part of this.

unmasking our identities

Image

Once in a while I wonder why those Superheroes in books and movies have an alter ego or a secret Identity. Why do they wear masks? and why doesn’t Peter Parker just came out and say,” hey I’m Spiderman do you have an issue with that? ……. Well rhetorically speaking, of course!

As a cartoon addict I’ve always been surrounded with superheroes that have an issue of showing their true identity.

It’s actually kind of similar to the internet. I can be a superhero,too. But when reality hits home and the curtain is lifted off the mirror and this ‘created utopian image’ is shattered into a million pieces of glass in the process revealing the ‘real’ me, the me I see in my morning reflections every day, with dark circles under my eyes, a little too skinny, the need to conform towards societies image.

Reality explodes only to expose an invisible, secret and silent tear that drips into a private chamber called the heart,only to be ambushed by the firing bullets of unanswered questions that laid dormant for a long period of time, beneath the layers of grounds that make deep inner self,me.

Why do I laugh in my cry? Should the unsaid be spoken? What does my pride hide? Where is the truthful truth? Am I a brainless scarecrow,a heartless tin man gone rusty from tears, an armless nobody whom no one hears, but who can sees the truth.

Inauguration, Lupe Fiasco and Anti-Obama

 

lupe-suro

 

President Obama delivered his second inaugural address at the U.S. Capitol Monday, Jan. 21, 2013. Obama stressed on his commitment to the threat of”climate change” Monday’s events were ceremonial. The President was officially sworn into office for a second term on Sunday, Jan. 20, as required by the Constitution. 

 

Another event at the inaugural ball in Washington Monday night saw rapper Lupe Fiasco booted of stage by men in suits.

no_obama_poster_customise_your_text-r906f66a3a13f43869735dfa57952ad13_wad_216

Lupe Fiasco is Grammy-nominated rapper who caused controversy when he said,“To me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America,” Fiasco said. “I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s causing the other forms of terrorism. You know the root cause of terrorists is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”. Fiasco stayed on the anti-war song “Words I Never Said” for 30 minutes. The song contained very powerful words that were anti-Obama and which then caused the lights to go off and men in black suits came out and showed Fiasco off the stage as showed in the video.

 

The lyrics went along these lines,“Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist,” he raps. “Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit. That’s why I ain’t vote for him, next one either. I’m a part of the problem; my problem is I’m peaceful.”

The party was meant to celebrate Internet start-ups and that StartUp RockOn. The company released a statement and denies Fiasco was kicked of the stage because of his political views.


“Lupe Fiasco was not ‘kicked off stage’ for an ‘anti-Obama rant,“We are staunch supporters of free speech, and free political speech. This was not about his opinions. Instead, after a bizarrely repetitive, jarring performance that left the crowd vocally dissatisfied, organizers decided to move on to the next act.”

Was it appropriate to remove him off stage in that manner? Was his right of free speech  taken away?

Mali ‘invasion’ explained.

Once Fighting One Another, Islamist Factions Now Solid in Resisting French

by Jason Ditz, January 15, 2013

Reports on the Islamists in control of northern Mali often just label them all “al-Qaeda,” but the reality of the situation is that in addition to the al-Qaeda in Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) faction, several other independent Islamist factions, including MUJAO and Ansar Dine, have as much, or more influence across the region.

The groups have some commonalities, but have often been at odds since taking over the north, in many cases clashing openly over control of key areas. Ansar Dine in particular openly talked about severing all ties with AQIM and backing elections in an effort to avoid war.

But since France launched its invasion over the weekend, those differences and rivalries have dried up. Northern Mali is under attack from abroad and the myriad fighters are now unified by a…

Hollywood,Washington and Zero Dark Thirty

 

hollywood

 

The Director of the Hurt Locker (which I consider to be a complete celebration of killing as well as the devaluation of human life) Kathryn Bigelow is the first woman ever to win an Oscar for directing. In Zero Dark Thirty she takes a different route to distinguish Zero Dark Thirty. The movie is predicted to be hit even though it still hasn’t premiered in Australia. (Australian Release: 31 Jan 2013)

The film is reviewed by The Guardian and in summary is about, “A chronicle of the decade-long hunt for Osama bin Laden after the 9/11 attacks, and his death at the hands of the Navy Seals team 6 in May 2011.”

The movie has been very controversial due to its scenes on the torture of detainees in the war on terror and as Naomi Wolf sates in, A letter to Kathryn Bigelow on Zero Dark Thirty’s apology for torture by peddling the lie that CIA detentions led to Bin Laden’s killing, you have become a Leni Riefenstahl-like propagandist of torture:

Zero Dark Thirty is a gorgeously-shot, two-hour ad for keeping intelligence agents who committed crimes against Guantánamo prisoners out of jail. It makes heroes and heroines out of people who committed violent crimes against other people based on their race – something that has historical precedent”.

In my view Zero dark thirty represents the new style of making films, one were we hear ‘what we are supposed to know‘ and it is the embedded kind. Zero dark thirty is an illustration of the more overt dealings between Washington and Hollywood.

In addition a new amendment which was tagged on the National Defence Authorization Act for Fiscal year 2013 which in summary, allows for the United States government to produce and disburse pro-American propaganda within America’s own borders under the so-called aim of putting al-Qaeda’s attempts at ‘convincing the world against Western ideals.This Amendment Legalises the direct manipulation of Americans without their knowledge with the aid of the available medians.This by all means is a violation of both civilian rights and human rights as well.

US Navy Seals Commander who is famed for Osama Bin Laden death commits ‘Apparent Suicide’.

US Navy Seal Commander Job W Price

In Hyderabad SEAL Team 4 Commanding Officer Job W. Price commited suicide. He and his team were famed for finding and then killing Osama bin Laden.

Commander. Job W. Price, 42, died Saturday, Dec. 22, of a “non-combat-related injury while supporting stability operations in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan”. He has left behind his wife and daughter.

A suicide of an Officer of this rank usually surrounds controversy by the media and also from critics of the killing of Osama Bin Laden, as the team was best known for killing Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan on May 1, 2011.

At the time Price was in Afghanistan supporting stability operations in Uruzgan Province. He was assigned to an East Coast-based Naval Special Warfare unit based in Virginia Beach. Price’s was also assigned the task of coordinating all of Team 4 missions.

SEAL Team 4 which price coordinated is among eight SEAL team which are deployed. SEAL Team 6 though is best known among them for uncovering and then killing Osama bin Laden.

A military official made a statement regarding the death and said, “appears to be the result of suicide”. The official spoke on the of status of ‘anonymity’ because the death is still being investigated.

Smith added: “As we mourn the loss and honour the memory of our fallen teammate, those he served with will continue to carry out the mission.”.

‘why do Journalist beat the drums of war regardless of the lies of governments?’

war-you-dont-see

A film with a powerful message that addresses the role of the media in repetitive wars like Iraq, Afghanistan and also tackles the question, “why do Journalist beat the drums of war regardless of the lies of governments ?”.

The War you don’t see is a master piece of Investigative Journalism. It focuses on the embedded journalism who are to put it in more simpler words actually, ‘In bed with the administration’. The film delves into the history of both embedded and independent Journalism and the role played in many wars since world war one to Japan and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the many invasions in particular Vietnam to Afghanistan and Iraq.

John Pilger says in the film: “We journalists… have to be brave enough to defy those who seek our collusion in selling their latest bloody adventure in someone else’s country… That means always challenging the official story, however patriotic that story may appear, however seductive and insidious it is.

For propaganda relies on us in the media to aim its deceptions not at a far away country but at you at home… In this age of endless imperial war, the lives of countless men, women and children depend on the truth or their blood is on us… Those whose job it is to keep the record straight ought to be the voice of people, not power”.

Pildger also brings into the context another war after the focus changes from Iraq and Afghanistan to Iran as a Nuclear weapons capability. We see this in present day 2012 (going on to 2013 in a couple of days) I find this to be a prediction a well-informed one by Pilder, who released this film in 2010. The drum is beating for another war hopefully we are more informed and this war does not occur.

This film is a great eye opener and also provides a rare insight into how the media

actually works. Pilger also interviews  politicians to the Editor and chief of ITV and also Julian Assange. A great example of investigative journalism.

Instagram debucile summed up

instagram-cover1-300x156

Instagram is again stuck in another  debacle, this time for their contract changes. It is a class action lawsuit filed on Friday by the Southern California-based Finkelstein and Krinsk law firm which calls on the federal court to ‘bar Instagram from changing the rules’.

Facebook (because Facebook own Instagram) announced that the complaint was “without merit.” [and]”We will fight it vigorously,”.

As a person that is an avid user of Instagram I would be honestly,  devastated to see the app removed from the market. It is a great app that  allows  people to document moments that are personal in the form of pictures so they can share them with friends and family. It is a great tool for aspiring photographers to get their work out there and connect with other users.

This app also always people to take pics let’s be honest that are good quality and you can also edit it and play around with it, as a teenager I can say that it is one of my most worn out apps metaphorically  speaking of course.

Furthermore, just last week Instagram was also in a debacle about,’ changes to the Instagram privacy policy and terms of services had included wording that allowed for people’s pictures to be used by advertisers at Instagram or Facebook worldwide,royalty-free’.

Instagram then changed their plans after an out cry over the new changes that would have been effective in January.

Instagram co-founder and chief Kevin Systrom commented on the situation in one of his blog posts he said,”I want to be really clear: Instagram has no intention of selling your photos, and we never did. We don’t own your photos, you do”.

As a user of Instagram my concern is warranted but nothing to get to worried about right?
