Gingrich Labels Ron Paul’s Entire Support Base As “People Who Want To Legalize Drugs”

Ron Paul

The allegation is clear, Newt Gingrich’s latest assertion that Ron Paul’s “volunteer base is people who want to legalize drugs” is designed to create the impression that anyone who votes for Paul is at best socially irresponsible or at worst a crack addled junkie.

The former speaker of the House made the remarks in an interview with conservative commentator John McCaslin yesterday, also taking a swipe at Paul over his foreign policy outlook.

“This is a guy who basically says, if the United States were only nice, it wouldn’t have had 9/11.” Gingrich stated, boiling down an extremely complex issue into a meaningless snipe.

“He doesn’t want to blame the bad guys. … He dismisses the danger of Iranian nuclear weapon and seems to be indifferent to the idea that Israel could be wiped out.” Gingrich added.

Anyone who has spent more than five minutes researching Ron Paul’s stance on foreign policy, and 9/11 in particular, knows that Paul subscribes to the ‘blowback’ theory put forth by multiple experts, former US intelligence officials and validated by Osama Bin Laden himself, that the US is viewed as a legitimate target because it has engaged in military occupation and preemptive war in the middle east and beyond for decades.

Media Blackout On Cheney Iran False Flag Story

Steve Watson

The mainstream American corporate press has once again proven itself to be no better than the state controlled media in places like Communist China or Zimbabwe, by steadfastly refusing to print even a mention of the huge story concerning veteran journalist Seymour Hersh’s recent comments that the vice president wanted to carry out a false flag operation to provoke a war with Iran.

The outright complicity of the corporate media in blackballing this story reminds us how the neocon cabal in the White House has consistently been able to conspire, lie and twist the truth for its own ill gotten gains without facing any substantial public scrutiny.

As we reported Thursday, Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh revealed how the neocons convened around Dick Cheney and brainstormed ways to kick off World War IV.

“There was a dozen ideas proffered about how to trigger a war,” Hersh explained. “The one that interested me the most was why don’t we build — we in our shipyard — build four or five boats that look like Iranian PT boats. Put Navy seals on them with a lot of arms. And next time one of our boats goes to the Straits of Hormuz, start a shoot-up.”

Given that only a few weeks ago Hersh’s exclusive story concerning the vamping up of covert U.S. military activity inside Iran made headlines everywhere, in every major publication and outlet, it begs the question where are they now for an even bigger story?

The Financial Times even carries a story today about how Hersh is “The Last Great American Reporter”, yet the lengthy piece contains no mention of his latest revelations. Continue reading

Cheney, Neocons Considered Killing Americans in Pretext to Attack Iran

Kurt Nimmo

In the video here, taped at the Campus Progress journalism conference earlier this month, the Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh reveals how the neocons convened around Dick Cheney and brainstormed ways to kick off World War IV, as they fondly call their pet project to take out the Muslims and foment a contrived “clash of civilizations.”

Gitmo Al Qaeda Movie Creator Previously Pushed Terror Propaganda

Steve Watson

A Pentagon produced documentary on Al Qaeda which was presented as evidence at the first Guantanamo war crimes trial was created by a terrorism consultant who has previously attempted to pass off Pentagon released propaganda as directly released by Al Qaeda.

Along with experts on Islamic terrorist groups who were baffled by the video and declared that it had come from a security agency, the very journalist who received the tape also announced that the source was not Al Qaeda.

“The Al-Qaida Plan” was shown to an audience of military jurors hearing evidence against a former driver for Osama bin Laden earlier this week. The movie essentially props up the official government version of events on 9/11 and asserts that there was a coordinated “overarching conspiracy” by operatives of Osama Bin Laden to carry out the attacks.

One interesting facet of this, beyond the ludicrous notion that a Pentagon produced film could be classed as neutral evidence, was revealed in an associated press article:

The title of the al-Qaida video is a tribute to “The Nazi Plan,” a film the U.S. used to help convict German officers during the Nuremberg war crimes trials after World War II, said Evan Kohlmann, a consultant and terrorism expert hired to create the new video for use at the Guantanamo tribunals.

The exercises have been called “Operation Brimstone” and are lead by the USS Theodore Rooselvelt Carrier Strike group and the USS Iwo Jima Expedtionary Strike Group which carries ground forces trained in operating in shallow coastal-littoral waters and the seizure of islands like the ones in the Strait of Hormuz, Qeshm for example. The narrow island is about fifty miles long and just a few miles off Bandar Abbas believed to be the headquarters of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and the small islands in the strait are manned by Revolutionary Guard Marines.
