pict rocks 2-1All  parents inevitably experience those times when the children are fighting and the parents ask “what seems to be the problem?” Danny Schechter said during “The Debate” on Press TV that what is needed is a third-party to help negotiate a settlement in Ukraine. How about somebody start a campaign asking parents from around the world to send in a short video where they say “what seems to be the problem in Ukraine?”

The parents video/internet campaign suggestion was presented mostly out of frustration over the strange series of events in Ukraine during 2014, but perhaps the parents angle could go viral and be effective. Now is certainly the time for men and women around the world to use all of their creative tools for stopping the war insanity taking place in Ukraine. Let’s hope billions of people show up at the NATO meeting coming up only days from now in Britain and, besides protesting any escalation of war in Ukraine, make a strong point about solving the conflict peacefully. Why are political and military leaders using the unwise, provocative, inflammatory rhetoric? Isn’t the loss of over 2,600 lives and somewhere between  500,000 and 1,000,000 people now displaced in Ukraine enough?

Whether the issue is corporate greed, political ideology, international finance competition, geopolitical power, Ukraine’s natural gas, mineral, and agricultural resources/GMO, energy markets competition, generational disputes between Western and Eastern Ukrainians, serious problems associated with investigating MH17, or some combination of these or other factors, all parties need to compile their lists of concerns and questions, sit down for discussions for as long it takes, and come up with a mutually agreeable, peaceful way forward.

One commentator made the point that if Victor Yanukovych had taken the same actions as the current government in Kiev has for close to five months – initiated a bombing campaign on Western Ukrainians, killing thousands with indiscriminate shelling of homes, schools, and infrastructure, to the point where 500,000 became displaced – there would have been hell to pay.

There is something very wrong and disturbing about events in Ukraine. Humanity must demand an end to warring in Ukraine while taking strong, highly coördinated actions calling for a ceasefire and peace negotiations now.

Deliver a viral, loud, powerful, impassioned, worldwide message…

A Message From Buenos Aires.

Posted on August 18, 2014

by Jerry Alatalo

“The history of the race, and each individual’s experience, are thick with evidence that a truth is not hard to kill and that a lie told well is immortal.”


366-1While reading an article about Argentina’s financial problems in dealing with a “vulture fund” run by billionaire Paul Singer, a reference was made to another recent article written by Argentinian Adrian Salbuchi. In Mr. Salbuchi’s article he suggested a good part of Argentina’s debt was in the form called “odious”. An example of nations’ odious debt is when corrupt  leaders take multi-billion dollar loans from the World Bank, International Monetary Fund or one of the “too-big-to-fail” mega-banks while knowing the loan proceeds will never be used for benefitting the people living in the particular country.

So-called third world or developing countries have been the victims of large-scale predatory lending in recent history, with unfortunate consequences for citizens but good results for the small number of wealthy who become the recipients of national debt loan proceeds. For those who’ve never heard of John Perkins, or read his geopolitical bestseller “Confessions of An Economic Hit Man”, finding his interviews and reading the book will offer an excellent analysis of how odious debt has come to strangle the economies and living standards of many nations.

With some familiarity of Adrian Salbuchi, and some time passed since last listening to his interviews, it was good to find he uploads videos on his YouTube channel. Around a month ago he uploaded a video which recorded a TV program broadcasted from Buenos Aires as a special English-language production. The program title is “False Flags: Past, Present, and Future” – the subject of which will most likely never go out over the airwaves from U.S. corporate media outlets into the living rooms of American citizens.

In simple terms, a “false flag” event is one where a nation carries out an unexpected attack on itself or others then blames another country/group for it. False flags are engineered to manipulate public opinion in favor of escalated military actions or economic warfare/sanctions against the blamed nation(s) or group(s).

Before getting into the program contents, perhaps it’s worth noting that the term “false flag” has come into the awareness of a great number of men and women around the world since the rise of the internet. Before the internet became popular –  and increasingly the source of news for people who no longer find corporate media credible – if one mentioned the phrase “false flag” they’d find responses such as “what is a false flag?” or “what are you talking about?” But now nearly everyone knows what a false flag is; the phrase has become part of everyday. common language.

“False Flags: Past, Present, and Future” begins with a video clip of President Barack Obama at a press conference during a recent European conference on nuclear weapons safety. In his address, Mr. Obama notes his concern about a “nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan”, which Mr. Salbuchi then suggests may be hinting a possible large-scale false flag. One may be reminded of Barack Obama’s press address some months before the controversial August 2013 chemical attacks in Syria, which nearly resulted in a bombing campaign on that country, where he warned Syria’s using chemical weapons would be crossing a “red line”.

The August 2013 Syrian chemical attacks are now seen by many as a “false flag” event designed to bring about a U.S./U.K./France military attack on Syria, with the citizens of those nations accepting the assertion that Syria’s government/army was responsible. Before the internet, such a false flag action would have been “successful”, the people of the world would have believed Syria’s army did it, and the bombing campaign would have happened. Fortunately, within hours of the chemical attacks, the false flag became the subject of many articles flooding the internet, leading to worldwide knowledge of the deception and 90% opposition to any attack on Syria.

Unfortunately, too often false flags are soon forgotten in the current short-term memory nature of the world’s news cycle. Those who attempt to – or successfully carry out – false flags, instead of properly facing accountability for intentionally deceiving their citizens, somehow remain “off the hook” for their serious and immoral actions. Adrian Salbuchi mentions some of history’s false flags: the USS Maine, the Lusitania, the “surprise” attack of Pearl Harbor, Vietnam and the Gulf of Tonkin, September 11, 2001 and destruction of the Twin Towers, Britain’s train bombings of July 7, 2005, and others.

In Ukraine, many question whether the February 2014 “Maidan Massacre” – where over 100 civilians and police officers were gunned down by snipers – and the shoot down of Malaysian Flight MH17 were not “false flag” operations. In similar fashion to the Syria chemical attacks, the Maidan Massacre seems to somehow have drifted out of public consciousness and now gets nearly no international media or legal attention. No unbiased investigations were undertaken and carried out to completion; in neither case have the criminals responsible been correctly identified, prosecuted, and punished. Both were major historical, criminal actions. The Maidan Massacre remains an extremely important, of global-consequence, unsolved mass murder event.


Whether deceptive, harmful, and highly consequential actions falling into the class of “false flag operation” become carried out by leaders of any nation or group, the highest ranking military or intelligence officials of any nation, or covered up/censored by the most powerful media corporations on Earth: humanity must act to expose them, prevent them, demand punishment for those responsible – and protect innocent men, women, and children around the world from their profoundly negative effects.

Malaysian Newspaper Charges Ukraine Shot Down MH17.

Posted on August 17, 2014

by Jerry Alatalo

ocean44Many around the world are making an effort to try to find the truth about what happened to Malaysian Flight MH17 which crashed in Eastern Ukraine last month. Malaysian newspaper The New Strait Times has recently published an article asserting Ukraine’s government was responsible. Close to 300 passengers perished. Those who’ve followed developments on the tragedy across the internet are aware that many articles have been published which contradict the narrative that pro-Russian Eastern Ukraine separatists or Russia shot the airliner down.

What, if any, relation the announcement by BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) of a new development bank to compete against the World Bank and International Monetary Fund has to the downing of MH17 – two days after that major announcement – is unknown.

While there seemed to be a rush to point the finger of blame at Eastern Ukraine separatists and/or Russia, in a previous reposted article retired U.S. military/intelligence men and women wrote an open letter to President Obama suggesting releasing to the public any evidence supporting administration claims of Russian involvement. MH17 is a very controversial issue which is being debated almost everywhere in the corporate media and alternative media over the internet. Thus far, few if any western mainstream media groups have commented on reports that contradict the U.S. government narrative pointing toward Russian accountability.

Frankly, an event the size of MH17, which could result in war on a level no man or woman wants to imagine, is of such high importance that how it’s been dealt with in corporate media and the halls of governments is extremely disturbing. Although the number of people killed was one tenth the number killed on September 11, 2001, the event was on the same scale of possible negative consequences and huge questions about criminal responsibility. MH17 and September 11 are alike in that all legitimate theories of what happened are not being presented to the public, as seen with government/media absence of response to possible scenarios and reasonable questions.

When a respected newspaper from Malaysia publishes an article pointing toward Ukraine’s government, and there’s no mention or analysis coming from U.S. politicians in Washington, European governments, Ukraine’s government or Western media, one is simply left with the strong feeling that something is wrong with this whole scenario. This situation is not being handled in the way it requires – with coördinated law enforcement efforts taken by the world’s best investigators.

Former U.S. Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul has said on air the “U.S. is likely hiding truth” about MH17. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, his son and potential Republican nominee for president in 2016, has thus far not made any comment about his father’s MH17 assertions. Here again, one is left with no clear explanation for such an odd situation, where a father and former high level U.S. politician makes extremely controversial remarks and his high level U.S. politician son is silent.

With regard to MH17, what is so distressing and highly disappointing is the feeling that something not being right and very odd is felt by many people who have the power to get this extremely important issue on the correct path. Some party was behind the downing of MH17, people are acting very strangely over the shoot down and – because of the public’s confusion and failures of governments and media to deal with the event in ways which match its tremendous importance – it is urgent that capable people step forward and get the MH17 investigation straightened out as quickly as possible.

Information about MH17 and the Malaysian newspaper publishing the article claiming Ukraine’s government was behind the downing was found while viewing a weekly program by investigative journalists Kevin Barrett and James Fetzer. Both men are long-time writers on their personal sites along with other media outlets, and both men are former university professors. Kevin Barrett and James Fetzer have been guests on numerous talk radio and television programs over many years, often seen on Press TV and RT, while hosting their own radio talk shows dealing with a variety of “controversial” topics.

The following video is their program from August 14, 2014. They changed the name of their show recently from “Dynamic Duo” to “False Flag Weekly News”, covering current events in ways that may seem difficult for people who rarely hear or read alternative viewpoints.

Besides the MH17 Malaysian newspaper article, in this episode Mr. Barrett and Mr. Fetzer touch on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control patent on an Ebola virus, Russian health officials’ concerns Ebola may be a type of biological weapon, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Fukushima radiation and other topics.

Worth noting is that $1,000 debate challenges from both Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and Mr. Barrett on the official 9/11 Report and/or questionable collapse of Building 7 have resulted in zero debates – no credentialed man or woman academic, professional, or expert has stepped forward to argue in favor of the government’s version of events.

Unfortunately, since 2011 and the disaster at Fukushima, it looks that full-blown “China Syndrome” is occurring, the Pacific Ocean and all life in it has been perhaps irreparably harmed by massive dosing of radiation, and could be an “extinction level event“.


The topics covered are not easy to deal with and, for what it’s worth, it would be a better world if certain anxiety-producing situations didn’t exist. But certain situations do exist, it is important that citizens are aware of them, and for that reason the following video made by Mr. Barrett and Mr. Fetzer is made available. Comments are encouraged on these important and provocative issues.
