The World Today: Exposing the Lies of Mainstream Media The mainstream media is owned by bankers and corporate kingpins

Posted by Admin on May 24, 2011

“Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude.  In the Press and Encyclopaedias, in Schools and Universities, everywhere Error holds sway, feeling happy and comfortable in the knowledge of having Majority on its side.”   —Goethe

Dear Readers,

Thank you for visiting Global Research! We are reassured to know that you have come to this site because you are looking to find the truth, the REAL truth behind the “news”, to understand the political, social and economic forces shaping the world you live in.

Though Goethe made his insightful observation two hundred years ago, his words hold more meaning today than ever in history. Error can indeed be found throughout stories in the mainstream press, in “official reports” and coming from the very mouths of world leaders, many “democratically” elected. But what even Goethe could not have predicted is the broad extent to which these errors are knowingly, deceptively and insidiously woven into our daily news, effectively subverting the masses and keeping them blind and apathetic to the empirically-driven motives of the world’s elite.

If you are visiting this site, it is because you have realized that things aren’t “adding up”, that what world leaders and influential figures are telling us, as conveyed by mainstream media, does not accurately reflect the picture of the world today. You have seen that the only way to find the “truth” is to go to independent sources that aren’t funded and manipulated by corporate and political interests.

The aims of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG) and Global Research are to battle the tidal waves of misinformation and propaganda washing our minds on a daily basis. We have separated ourselves from the corporate-controlled mainstream news, whose only objective is to serve their corporate masters. We take no assistance from the major foundations such as Rockefeller, Ford, and MacArthur, who act as patrons (and thus pacifiers) of the alternative and critical voices challenging the forces of globalization.

We do this in order to remain an independent voice, challenging all that needs to be challenged and exposing all that remains in the dark. Bringing light to a dimly lit world is no easy task, and though the aim and method is “independence,” we are, in fact, entirely dependent upon YOU, our readers.

Without your support, we cannot continue our operations nor expand our horizons and opportunities. Global Research is indebted to our readers, and we are here for you and because of you. If you would like Global Research to continue and to grow, we need your support now more than ever.

The mainstream media is owned by bankers and corporate kingpins. Not only that, but it has been historically and presently infiltrated by covert government agencies, seeking to deceive and propagandize their agendas. The CIA has long had associations with major mainstream news publications. By far the most valuable of these associations, according to CIA officials, have been with the New York Times, CBS and Time Inc. The CIA even ran a training program “to teach its agents to be journalists,” who were “then placed in major news organizations with help from management.”

At Global Research, we seek to not only expose and criticize the larger picture, but to point the finger at the media, itself, and examine who is lying, why they lie, and how they get away with it. To continue in our endeavours, we need our readers to continue in their support.

One important and helpful thing that all of our readers can do is to help spread our name and information by “liking” our Facebook page here. We post articles daily that will appear in your news feed so that you don’t have to come to us, we can bring our information straight to you. “Like” our page and recommend us to your friends. Every bit helps!

You can also support us by continuing to send us your much needed donations which allow us to continue our day-to-day operations and help us expand our scope and content.

Supporting Global Research is supporting the cause of truth and the fight against media disinformation.

Thank you.

NBC’s ‘The Event’: The secret even the President does not know

Posted by Admin on September 14, 2010

September 11th, 2010 11:43 am MT

http://www.examiner.com/ufo-in-phoenix/nbc-s-the-event-the-secret-even-the-president-does-not-know

Imagine a secret so secret that the President of the United States of America is not on the Need-To-Know list—one that would change the course of history were it to become widespread public knowledge.

Sounds like a great premise for an intense action-suspense drama. It’s so good that NBC has utilized it as the basis for the highly anticipated television drama ‘The Event’, scheduled to debut September 20, 2010. The description above was taken directly from the trailer. Few television series have generated this much abject curiosity prior to their debut and no event since someone shot J.R. Ewing has been kept so secret by a publicity hungry television studio.

So what is the Event that will change television history?

According to Wikipedia, “The Event follows Sean Walker (Jason Ritter), a man who, while investigating the mysterious disappearance of his fiancée, ends up unraveling the biggest cover-up in U.S. history; a coverup which shapes the very core of mankind as a whole, whose implications are lifechanging.”

According to Access Hollywood, what is being covered up and what the event is, is currently the best kept secret in Hollywood. So secret, in fact, that most of the cast do not know what the Event that drives the plot really is. Despite repeated attempts to pry the secret from the cast, Access Hollywood has been unable to get an answer to this public relations mystery.

The promotional clips for the series are a masterpiece of ambiguity as to the exact nature of the situation that forces the President to contemplate the most profound act of his political career. If you watch them with the mindset of the consensus paradigm, several possibilities come to mind: The well-worn notion of impending destruction of an American city by a terrorist nuclear device; the release of an unstoppable genetically designed plague; a planetary extinction level event cause by an impending meteor strike or something even worse. Whatever that might be.

There is an event in the first episode, apparently an attack upon the President by forces unknown, but that is not the event, which remains a closely guarded trade secret. According to Blair Underwood, who plays President Elias Martinez, a Cuban-American proud of his heritage, the true nature of the event will be apparent to the audience by the second episode, but the answer to that question will only engender many more questions which will be progressively answered as the series continues. And that statement itself is a clue.

You don’t have to wait until the second episode to find out what drives the plot of ‘The Event’ and has Hollywood and the fall viewing audience in suspense.

[Spoiler Alert: Don’t read the remainder of this article if you want to preserve NBC’s carefully crafted surprise.]

[OK. If you are reading this, you asked for it]

The secret in the character dossier that Laura Innes is contractually forbidden to reveal is that her character, a mysterious and powerful leader of a group of detainees in at the Mount Inostranka facility in Alaska—think Gitmo on ice—is an alien being outwardly indistinguisable from indigenous humans. She is the leader of but one alien faction who is busy influencing world events. For that reason, Innes is probably the only one of the cast and crew outside the producers and scriptwriter who has a clear picture of the event.

The Event facing the President of the United States is the disclosure to the American public of the reality of alien life operating on Earth.

And he is facing a deadline for disclosure that is forcing his hand. The clock is ticking. Think ’24’ meets the X-Files.

The clues to the plot are readily decoded by anyone who has studied the UFO phenomenon and, more to the point, the development and implementation of United States public information policy on the issue over the last six decades, as the behavior of the characters in the trailers mirror that of their real life counterparts.

The series revolves around the problem of how — and what would force you — to tell a society that the reality they actually live in includes non-human intelligent life — some of which has been visiting Earth before mankind as it thinks it knows itself was created. And the series is itself part of a novel solution to that vexing social problem.

Before you blame me for spoiling the plot, know that New York Magazine has already published the secret of the event. And realize that this ground breaking treatment will still bear attentive viewing as the series works its way through the laybryinth of implications of the basic plot. There are a nearly insurmountable mountain of problems associated with the act of disclosure.

Disclosure of the secret of ‘The Event’ by no means spoils the impact of this series or ruins its entertainment value. Indeed, knowing the real-life back story behind the script can only intensify the viewing experience.

Trust me, there will be enough plot twists built into the issue to keep everyone wondering around the water cooler for the run of the series just what complication will surface next or how the unwitting protaganist, the President, the head of the NSA, the leader of the alien faction and supporting cast of characters will behave in light of the latest episode’s revelations.

Whether or not this is the most important secret in history, it is by now one of the most complicated to unravel. And unraveling it for themselves as the series progresses is perhaps the most important step a viewer can take in their lifetime towards a more accurate understanding of the world we actually live in.

As we will see in this series of articles, the real problem is how a society can re-educate itself. What is required is an acknowledgment by the society of a different understanding of reality than what they have depended upon for decades — not the disclosure of a questionable alternate reality by a government with a track record of stonewalling and spin to a population ill-prepared to assimulate the truth. On this issue, a Presidential press conference is powerless, and potentially counter-productive.

It may be that The Event is the event we’ve been waiting for. Perhaps disclosure begins not with a bang but with a whisper.

It turns out that perhaps the only way out of the intellectual trap western technological society has created for itself is for each citizen to do his or her homework. The responsible literature to do so is in short supply, but it is available.

Sensible dialog is desperately needed on this issue. Debate on subject has been hopelessly polarized between the so called ‘believers’ a meme implying uncritical thinking to the mainstream and the so-called ‘debunkers’ and ‘skeptics’ a meme implying deliberate obtusification of the secret truth to those who have read the literature.

Neither term is accurate in its implied meaning. For that matter, neither is ‘UFO’, which has become, unfortunatly, synonymous with ‘alien spacecraft’. The genre needs a new lexicon, as Leslie Kean points out in her New York Times best-seller “UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record” which is currently 30 and rising on the New York Times best-seller list for very good reason.

To appreciate The Event, ask yourself this question:

What would YOU do if you were sitting in the oval office and discovered a society-changing truth was buried deep within the inherited national security apparatus of your administration and that matters were coming to a head that force you to try to tell the American public that everything they were taught in schools and religious instituions and know to be true is, well, inaccurate?

How real can fictional television be? Let’s start by asking one question:

Is it plausible that the President would not know something supposedly this important?

Next Segment: The Missing Times.

This is article 1 of a five part series discussing the significance of the NBC television series ‘The Event’, which will premiere on September 20, 2010. The series appears to be the beginning of an effort to inform the American public of the reality of the UFO and alien life on Earth.

UFO in China’s Skies Prompts Investigation

UFO in China’s Skies Prompts Investigation

Eighteen Flights Delayed, Theories Abound

by MARY HUANG

BEIJING, July 14, 2010

http://tinyurl.com/23rla4v<

An unidentified flying object (UFO) forced Xiaoshan Airport in Hangzhou, China to cease operations on July 7. A flight crew preparing for descent first detected the object around 8:40 p.m. and notified the air traffic control department. Aviation authorities responded within minutes, grounding outbound flights and diverting inbound ones to airports in Ningbo and Wuxi.

Eighteen flights were affected. Though normal operations resumed an hour later, the incident captured the attention of the Chinese media and sparked a firestorm of speculation on the UFO’s identity.

“It is a hidden U.S. bomber flying toward China,” one Internet user wrote on Monday. Another wrote on Sunday night, “In my opinion, the UFO is neither a U.S. missile nor a Russian satellite. Suggestions that it is extraterrestrial are even more preposterous.

“Everyone, use your head. This is clearly a man-made phenomenon. Would the U.S. or Russia risk provoking China’s anger by firing a missile or satellite rocket in Chinese skies, without warning? I believe the Chinese military is responsible for the UFO. It is a new missile or aircraft being tested out.”

Fueling speculations further, Hangzhou residents released photos, taken in the afternoon before the delays, of a hovering object bathed in golden light and exhibiting a comet-like tail. Less than an hour before the Xiaoshan airport shut down, residents said they also saw a flying object emitting red and white rays of light.

Resident Ma Shijun was taking a nighttime stroll with his wife when he saw the object.

“I felt a beam of light over my head. Looking up, I saw a streak of bright, white light flying across the sky, so I picked up the camera and took the photo. The time was 8:26 p.m. However, whether the object was a plane, or whether it was Xiaoshan Airport’s UFO, I don’t have a clear answer,” Ma told the Xinhua news agency.

The photos taken by Hangzhou residents may be unrelated to the UFO that shut down Xiaoshan Airport. According to Hangzhou meteorological authorities, residents in the afternoon probably saw light reflecting off of an airplane. As for Ma’s nighttime photo, Beijing Planetarium curator Zhu Jing told Xinhua that the object looks just like a plane shining its strobe lamps.

UFO shuts down Hangzhou airport

Posted by Admin on July 15, 2010

Xiaoshan airport in Hangzhou, China was shut down after airport workers discovered, well, we’re not sure what they discovered, that was the problem.

Think the only things in Hangzhou are West Lake and screaming? Think again. Looks like the famous attraction got some out-of-this-world company as Hangzhou’s Xiaoshan airport was shut down for an hour (creating hours of delays) around 9pm after “something” was spotted hovering in the sky. Officials still aren’t sure what they saw, but media reports coming from Xinhua government news agency have come out to say that an unidentified flying object (UFO) was detected in the area.

There’s no better way to make headlines than to have a UFO sighting.

As the airport tried to figure out what to do, outgoing flights were grounded and incoming flights (Hangzhou is Asian discount air carrier Air Asia’s hub) were diverted to Ningbo and Wuxi.

See CNNGo’s collection of UFO sightings in Asia.

Shanghai Daily reports that the object was seen on airport radar, and that a passenger who saw the UFO said that it “looked like a twinkling spot and disappeared very soon.”

Other reports say that witnesses in Hangzhou saw a glowing object, “glowing in golden light,” hovering in the afternoon sky and followed by “a comet-like tail.”

Hangzhou authorities have come out saying that what people (and airport officials) reported seeing might have been sunlight reflected from regular airplanes.

Were not saying we think little green men landed — why choose China when Thai beaches are so close by? — but really, a reflection from an airplane shut down an airport? They should come up with a better excuse than that.

Foul Play: Vatican Official Tied To BP, Goldman-Sachs, And Media Censorship In The Oil Spill Fiasco

Posted by Admin on June 13, 2010

By Sherri Kane and Leonard G. Horowitz

News unfolding from the oil crisis in the Gulf of Mexico has linked media censorship to investment bankers at Goldman Sachs (GS) stewarding the Vatican’s wealth, and increasing evidence that the explosion was intended.

A near total news blackout from independent sources, and arrests of anyone caught photographing and filming the devastation, show the Halliburton-British Petrolium (BP) oil crisis is being criminally controlled, implicating some of Wall Street’s heaviest hitters.

According to a report issued by frightened, yet faithful, documentary filmmaker, James Fox, interviewed from the Gulf’s Grand Isles by Mel Fabregas on the Internet’s Veritas Radio Show, “There is a complete media blackout” on news coverage broadcast from the region.

“They are arresting people with cameras and anyone off camera that is caught talking to a reporter,” Fox testified.

Another reporter told Fox,”You call this a free country? Right here, in the United States of America, there’s no freedom of press. There’s no freedom of speech. They’re closing down the airspace above the oil spill, so reporter’s can’t fly over to determine how bad these oil plumes really are.”

Suspicious pieces of this deadly puzzle feature Halliburton, the world’s second largest oil field services company, headquartered in Houston and Dubai, whose negligence is blamed for the timely and profitable explosion.

Three weeks before the “natural gas leak,” the George Bush/Dick Cheney 9-11-linked Halliburton company negotiated the purchase of the world’s largest oil-spill cleanup firm (Boots & Coots) at the exact time keen observers on Wall Street–financial intelligence agents at Goldman Sachs (GS; often called “Government Sachs”)–unloaded 44% of their stock in BP.

These facts parallel the shorting of airline stocks by those in the know prior to the World Trade Center (WTC) 9-11 attacks that new scientific evidence proves were followed by building demolitions, given the red thermite incendiary powder found everywhere around ground zero.

The WTC lessor, Larry Silverstein, partnered with Lloyd Blankfein of GS in the little known Partnership for New York City (PFNYC), took out a General Electric insurance policy just six weeks before the attacks. PFNYC “partners,” in charge of assessing financial damages to NYC, and reconstruction plans for the WTC, obviously “veered” insurance payoffs and additional private equity investments to Las Vegas for the construction of the 9-11 memorial–speciously called the “Veer Towers” in the “New World Center.” (Watch PHARMAWHORES, the movie; 1-888-508-4787.)

Blankfein, the PFNYC Co-Chairman and GS CEO, was barraged with indictments and rising media infamy regarding Goverment Sachs’s conflicting interests effectively demolishing the US economy through the “shorting” of the housing industry–scrutiny suspended by Halliburton’s oil rig synchronously exploding most profitably for GS and its CEO.

GS is covertly invested in the Bush-Cheney-linked Halliburton Company according to veteran observers. GS and Halliburton both had massive financial incentives to cause the profitable explosions–the three 9-11 WTC building demolitions, and the most recent “accident” in the Gulf.

The media’s gross neglect of the full extent of the crisis obviously supports GS’s damage control and incriminating connections. These include Blankfein’s PFNYC Co-Chairman, Rupert Murdoch, and their pernicious influence over the major networks and the PFNYC–the world’s leading petrochemical-pharmaceutical-biotechnology consortium profiting from death, disease, and environmental destruction. This unholy alliance best explains the media’s aversion to responsible reporting in the Gulf and elsewhere.

Besides Blankfein and Government Sachs backing stock in both BP and Halliburton, another red oil-drenched herring is Peter D. Sutherland–the outgoing Chairman of BP is also the current Non-Executive Chairman of Goldman Sachs International.

The scariest part of this whole story is that Mr. Sutherland, the man standing with one foot in GS, and the other on the burning Halliburton-BP oil rig, is the Consultor of the Extraordinary Section of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See. In other words, Sutherland is the chief financial adviser to the Pope.

In 2010, Mr. Sutherland finished a 13-year stint as Chairman of BP, Europe’s largest oil company. A former Attorney General of Ireland, he is President of the Federal Trust for Education and Research, a British think tank whose efforts might better be called corporatist indoctrination than trustworthy “education.” He is Chairman of The Ireland Fund of Great Britain, and a member of the advisory council of Business for New Europe–a pro-New-World-Order European think-tank based in Britain.

From 1993-95, Sutherland was the Director-General of the World Trade Organization.

In January 2006, the current Non-executive Chairman of Goldman Sachs International, was appointed by United Nations Secretary General, Kofi Annan, as his Special Representative for Migration.

Now, ironically, Sutherland’s mission impossible is to migrate marine flora and fauna, fisherman, and coastal residents out of harms way in this spreading international emergency.
