CALEB MAUPIN—Forerunners of the “color revolutions”, Caleb discusses the CIA-supported Hungarian uprising of 1956 and the Czech “Prague Spring” of 1968, the latter term symbolising the coming in from the frozen cold of communist tyranny. Every nation that heeded the capitalist siren song of the West became a corrupt neoliberal regime, warns Caleb. And each of these regimes were at the time of their birth hailed as great improvements over communism by many people who still define themselves as being anti-imperialist and “on the left”.

Journalist Aaron Mate and [Tehran-based] Professor Mohammad Marandi just took a trip to Syria to see the real-life impact on average people caused by the decade-long Western regime-change war and suffocating US/EU sanctions. They speak about their trip with Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton of the Moderate Rebels podcast.

CIA was interested enough in Kutner that the CIA’s top lawyer agreed to a lunch meeting. For some reason, before the lunch took place, Kutner called Oakley. According to CIA documents, Kutner asked the agency to fund his “World Habeas Corpus Centers,”66 which he hoped, with CIA backing, could be established around the world.
Kutner attempted to entice CIA with a proposal that celebrated the tough stand on human rights in communist countries taken by a “human rights” conference held in the capital of one of the most repressive cold war torture states—the U.S.-backed Shah’s Iran. It is an irony surpassed only by, perhaps, the idea of a worldwide archipelago of CIA-backed “human rights” centers.
The CIA saw the propaganda value in such an organization, but Oakley told Kutner that the organization would probably harm the project more than help it.

Alexander Mercouris discusses how China is no longer willing to take unending insults from the West, especially the US, and is now organising itself to respond in kind with its own information war capabilities. Also, as Special Addendum: A documentary on China’s transformation by PBS, the supposedly “mature and impartial” platform that never stoops to imperial propaganda. The fact is that PBS has also tangibly degenerated in the last two decades, and its prestige programs such as the Newshour and Frontline (inevitable given their corporate funding, staffing, etc.) have become only marginally less openly tendentious and mendacious than the regular commercial media. So they use the stiletto instead of the hammer, but the results are often the same: the conscious betrayal of truth. Be careful, therefore, as you watch this video. There’s the usual mix of lies and truths, with the latter often further massaged to diminish their impact.

One US military leader has called Israel “the intelligence equivalent of five CIAs.” An Israeli cabinet minister likens his country to “the equivalent of a dozen US aircraft carriers,” while the Jerusalem Post defines Israel as the executive of a “superior Western military force that” protects “America’s interests in the region.” Arab leaders have called Israel “a club the United States uses against the Arabs,” and “a poisoned dagger implanted in the heart of the Arab nation.”
