What is Behind the Bias in Mainstream News Coverage?

  • RT America Published on Oct 22, 2018
    The state of today’s corporate media in the United States is not what it used to be. Why aren’t many of the stories you need to know about being covered? And when they are covered, why aren’t they covered fully? RT America’s Rachel Blevins reports. For analysis RT America’s Rick Sanchez is joined by Chris Chambers, journalism professor at Georgetown University.

Liberman Says Israel Has ‘Exhausted All Options’ on Gaza. It’s War!

  • Zionist ‘666’ propaganda for war!
  • Liberman Says Israel Has ‘Exhausted All Options’ on Gaza. It’s War!
    by TOI STAFF, https://www.timesofisrael.com/
    Defense minister says a ‘strong blow’ against Hamas is the only way to lower the level of violence

    Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Monday declared that Israel had exhausted efforts at reaching an arrangement with the Hamas terror group to end months of violence along the border with the Gaza Strip, and that the time had come for the cabinet to make a decision on military action.

    Liberman’s comments came days after a Palestinian rocket attack on Beersheba that drew a series of Israeli airstrikes on targets in Gaza. Egyptian and United Nations mediators have been working to reach an agreement between the two sides to calm the situation.

    Speaking at the start of a Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee meeting, Liberman said the aim was to return the situation to the way it was before the end of March, when Palestinians in Gaza began weekly violent protests at the border.

    “We have exhausted all of the options, and now it is time to make decisions,” he said. “My position is very clear: We need to deliver a powerful blow to Hamas — that is the only way to get the situation back to the way it was before and to lower the level of violence to zero, or nearly zero.

MSM Ignores Saudi Wahhabism

  • RT America Published on Oct 19, 2018
    Anya Parampil reports on comments from President Trump, promising “severe” consequences against Saudi Arabia if the Kingdom is found to have murdered missing writer Jamal Khashoggi. Anya then explains what the mainstream media has missed in its coverage of his case and the special relationship which exists between the US and Saudi, specifically how US geo-strategic interests benefit from Saudi’s exportation of Wahhabism, an ultraconservative interpretation of Islam. Hassan el-Tayyib, Policy Director for Chicago Area Peace Action, joins In Question to discuss whether or not this moment will result in a true reevaluation of the US-Saudi partnership.

  • The House of Saud is, of course, Jewish. They pretend to be anti Jew/Israel to deceive their sheeple so as to continue governing. But they are Jews and the history is pretty well documented ! More proofs below article!
  • I have always wondered why the Saudi Arabia ruling class (House of Saud)never really supported the Palestinian cause. They pay lip service but never really put into action what they say. They are clearly pro-American and some would say in cahoots with Zionist Israel. Here are some possible answers.

    Is the Saudi Royal Family Jewish?
    ‘In the 1960’s the “Sawt Al Arab” Broadcasting Station in Cairo, Egypt, and the Yemen Broadcasting Station in Sana’a confirmed the Jewish Ancestry of the Saudi Family.

    King Faisal Al-Saud at that time could not deny his family’s kindred with the Jews when he declared to the Washington Post on Sept. 17, 1969 stating: “We, The Saudi family, are cousins of the Jews: we entirely disagree with any Arab or Muslem Authority which shows any antagonism to the Jews; but we must live together with them in peace. Our country (Arabia) is the Fountain head from where the first Jew sprang, and his descendants spread out all over the world.” That was the declaration of King Faisal AL-Saud Bin Abdul Aziz! ‘
  • Why is there the genealogy/descendents of Abdul Aziz bin Abdul Rahman ibn Faisal Al Saud in the Jewish Virtual Library? Draw your own conclusions!
  • 2002 Iraqi Intel Reported Wahhabis Are of Jewish Origin ! (emphasis mine)
    by David Livingstone, http://www.terrorism-illuminati.com/
    The U.S. Department of Defense has released translations of a number of Iraqi intelligence documents dating from Saddam’s rule. One, a General Military Intelligence Directorate report from September 2002, entitled “The Emergence of Wahhabism and its Historical Roots”, shows the Iraqi government was aware of the nefarious purposes of the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia, often known as Salafis, in serving Western interests to undermine Islam.

    The report relies heavily on the Memoirs of Mr. Hempher, which describe in detail how a British spy to the Middle East, in the middle of the eighteenth century, made contact with Adbul Wahhab, to create a subversive version of Islam, the notorious sect of Wahhabism, which became the founding cult of the Saudi regime. The movement was temporarily suppressed by the Ottomam armies in the middle of the nineteenth century. But with the assistance of the British, the Wahhabis and their Saudi sponsors returned to power and founded their own state in 1932. Since then, the Saudis have collaborated closely with the Americans, to whom they owe their tremendous oil wealth, in funding various Islamic fundamentalist organizations and other American covert operations, particularly the “jihad” in Afghanistan. But the Saudis simulatenously use the immense wealth at their dispossal to disseminate this disruptive brand of Islam to various parts of the world, categorized by some of the largest propaganda campaign in history.

    Many who defend Wahhabism as a legitimate reform movement of Islam have tried to dismiss the Memoirs as a spurious fabrication. These include Bernard Haykel, Professor in Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University, who, without providing any evidence, presumes the Memoirs to have been created by Ayyub Sabri Pasha.

    However, while the Memoirs only emerged in the 1970s, Pasha wrote his version of the story already in 1888. Ayyub Sabri Pasha was a well-known Ottoman writer and Turkish naval admiral, who served the Ottoman army in the Arabian Pensinsula, writing several works about the region and it’s history. Including The Beginning and Spreading of Wahhabism, where he recounts Abdul Wahhab’s association and plotting with Hempher.

    In addition to that revealed in the Hempher Memoirs, the Iraqi intelligence report also makes known some surprising claims, derived from works circulated in Arabic which have not been translated into English. As the report recounts, both Abdul Wahhab, and his sponsor, ibn Saud, who founded the Saudi dynasty, were of Jewish origin.

    For example, D. Mustafa Turan wrote, in The Donmeh Jews, that Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab was a descendant of a family of Donmeh Jews from Turkey. The Donmeh were descendants of followers of the infamous false-messiah of Judaism, Shabbetai Zevi, who shocked the Jewish world in 1666 by converting to Islam. Viewing it as a sacred mystery, Zevi’s followers imitated his conversion to Islam, though secretly keeping to their Kabbalistic doctrines. In Europe, the Shabbeteans were eventually led a century later by Jacob Frank, claiming to be a reincarnation of Zevi. And, according to Rabbi Antelman in To Eliminate the Opiate, to them belonged the Rothschilds who had a hand in the founding of the Bavarian Illuminati. The Donmeh community of Turkey were concentrated in the city of Salonika, which became a hotbed of Masonic activity, and from which the Young Turk movement evolved, which aided in the collapse of the Muslim empire of the Ottoman Turks. There is evidence that Ataturk himself, the founder of the modern Turkish state, was of Donmeh origin as well.

    Turan maintains that Abdul Wahhab’s grandfather, Sulayman was actually Shulman, having belonged to the Jewish community of Bursa in Turkey. From there he settled in Damascus, where he feigned Islam, but was apparently expelled for practicing sorcery. He then fled to Egypt and he again faced condemnation, so made his way he to the Hijaz, where he got married and fathered Abdul Wahhab. According to the report, the same is claimed in The Donmeh Jews and the Origin of the Saudi Wahabis, Rifat Salim Kabar.

    The notion of the Saudi family being of Jewish heritage has been published by Mohammad Sakher, who, it is claimed, was ordered killed by the regime for his revelations. The report relates a similar account, but from different sources. According The Wahabi Movement/The Truth and Roots, by Abdul Wahhab Ibrahim Al-Shammari, for example, ibn Saud is actually descended from Mordechai bin Ibrahim bin Mushi, a Jewish merchant from Basra. Apparently, when he was approached by members from the Arabian tribe of Aniza, then claimed to be one of them, and traveled with them to Najd and his name became Markhan bin Ibrahim bin Musa.

    Additionally, Abdul Wahhab was descended from Wahib Al-Tamimi, so, as reported by al Said Nasir, in The History of the Saud Family, the Saudi ambassador in Cairo, Abdullah bin Ibrahim al Mufaddal, paid Muhammad Al-Tamimi thirty five thousand Jinee in the year 1943, to forge a family tree of the Saudi family and that of Abdul Wahhab, and merge them into one, claiming their origin from the Prophet Mohammed.

    While it would be difficult to independantly authenticate these claims, they are interesting in light of the role that the state of Saudi Arabia has and continues to play with regards to supporting and advancing Western power in the Middle East and elsewhere. Especially astounding is the very dubious and virulent form of Islam, that Wahhabism and Salafism represent, which is currently wrecking havoc on Islamic traditions, and dividing the Muslim community in petty squabbles over trivial details, allowing the War on Islam to proceed effectively unchecked.
  • I have highlighted many times that modern Ashkenazi Khazarian Jews (about 90+% of modern Jewry) are not semitic and not the biological descendents of the 12 tribes of Israel. They are counterfeits!

Study Finds MSM’s Trump Coverage Just Hit 92% Negative Ahead of Midterms

  • Study Finds MSM’s Trump Coverage Just Hit 92% Negative Ahead of Midterms
    by Rich Noyes, https://russia-insider.com/en
    “Once again, the ongoing Russia investigation received more evening news coverage (342 minutes) than any other individual topic”

    In four weeks, Americans go to the polls for the midterm elections that the news media are casting as a referendum on the Trump presidency. Over the summer, the broadcast networks have continued to pound Donald Trump and his team with the most hostile coverage of a President in TV news history – 92 percent negative, vs. just eight percent positive. 

    For this report, MRC analysts reviewed all 1,007 evening news stories (1,960 minutes of airtime) about the Trump administration on ABC, CBS and NBC from June 1 to September 30, tallying the coverage of each topic and all evaluative comments made by anchors, reporters and non-partisan sources (such as voters or experts). 

    The results show that, over the past four months, nearly two-thirds of evening news coverage of the Trump presidency has been focused on just five main topics: the Russia investigation; immigration policy; the Kavanaugh nomination; North Korea diplomacy; and U.S. relations with Russia. The networks’ coverage of all of these topics has been highly negative, while bright spots for the administration such as the booming economy received extremely little coverage (less than one percent of the four-month total). Details: 

    Once again, the ongoing Russia investigation received more evening news coverage (342 minutes) than any other individual topic. This does not include the 86 minutes spent on the Michael Cohen investigation and guilty plea, except for a few minutes talking about the possibility that Cohen would cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller. 

    Since the beginning of the Trump administration, the three networks have spent 1,975 minutes – nearly 33 hours – on the Russia investigation, or nearly 18 percent of all of their coverage of the Trump presidency.
     As we have previously reported, virtually all of that coverage has been negative, while almost none of it has focused on any of the controversies involving Mueller or his investigative team.

IDF Says 20 Gaza Targets Bombed, Including Tunnels; Blames Hamas for Rockets

  • IDF Says 20 Gaza Targets Bombed, Including Tunnels; Blames Hamas for Rockets
    by JUDAH ARI GROSS, https://www.timesofisrael.com/
    Military doesn’t say which terror group launched rockets that hit Beersheba home, landed off central Israeli coast, but lays responsibility on Strip’s rulers.

    The Israeli military bombed 20 “military facilities” in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday morning, the army said, in response to a predawn rocket attack that struck a home in the southern Israeli city of Beersheba, causing damage but no injury.

    A second rocket fired from Gaza landed off the coast of the greater Tel Aviv area, known in Israel as Gush Dan, which consists of the metropolis itself along with a number of large suburbs.

    The Israel Defense Forces said it held the Hamas terror group, which rules the coastal enclave, responsible for the attack, regardless of which group specifically launched the rockets.

Analysis, Gaza Escalation: Netanyahu and Lieberman Are Talking Israel Into a Corner

The Israeli military, relentlessly and methodically, is driving people out of the 3-kilometer (1.8 mile) buffer zone it says it needs to protect against Hamas rockets and tunnels. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the buffer zone eats up about 44 percent of Gaza’s territory.

  • War propaganda! Hamas is a creation of Israel and works for the Israeli ShinBet/Mossad. Hamas has agreed to move Palestinians into the Sinai desert. See bottom of post. The plan by Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Satanic counterfeit, is to drive Palestinians into the Sinai desert via war!
  • Analysis, Gaza Escalation: Netanyahu and Lieberman Are Talking Israel Into a Corner
    by , https://www.haaretz.com/
    Balance of threats contradicts working assumption that neither Israel nor Hamas wants war

    “If these attacks don’t stop, then we’ll stop them. Israel will act with great force,” vowed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, after conducting a security assessment in the south with senior defense officials. “We’ve exhausted all the possibilities. We have to deal a harsh blowto Hamas,” added Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

    In the film “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” the character Tuco, played by Eli Wallach, famously said, “When you have to shoot, shoot. Don’t talk.” The cast and crew of the film reportedly burst out laughing at Wallach’s brilliant improvised line. But Wallach later said that he thought it sounded pretty sensible; he didn’t mean it as a joke. That is not the case when it comes to Israel’s leaders.

    The working assumption that has accompanied the confrontations with Hamas and the other groups in Gaza ever since the marches of return began over six months ago is that Israel and Hamas aren’t interested in war. Both sides want an “arrangement,” that is, a long-term cease-fire whose terms are known. Israel will allow the economic rehabilitation of Gaza (not just infusions of humanitarian aid) that will include the construction of a port and industrial zones in Egyptian territory. Hamas, in turn, will commit to stopping the marches and the incendiary balloons and will abandon the armed struggle against Israel.

    “No side is interested in war,” said Yahya Sinwar, the Hamas leader in Gaza, in an interview he gave indirectly to Yedioth Ahronoth. “War isn’t good for anyone.” Sinwar’s words didn’t seem to impress Israel’s leaders much, especially given the continued demonstrations at the border fence, the balloons and the rocket launched early Wednesday morning at Be’er Sheva.

Study Shows 2/3 of Americans Are Not as Polarized as the Media Wants You to Think

  • RT America Published on Oct 17, 2018
    A recent study called “Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape” shows that about 2/3 of Americans have views far outside what the media promotes as our “national conversation.” They polled 8,000 Americans about issues like immigration, white privilege, sexual harassment, and a bunch of other stuff that the media focuses on these days, and spent about a year on the research, and they found that about 2/3 of Americans are what they call, the ‘exhausted majority.’ As in, most people feel just like you when they see what the media is focusing on. Exhausted from the utter crap.

Hamas Denies Responsibility for Attack; IDF: Only Hamas Has These Rockets

  • Now why would Hamas fire these rockets (projectiles with no explosive charge really) and invite massive Israeli retaliation, mass murder of the Palestinians? These are false flag operations.
  • Hamas Denies Responsibility for Attack; IDF: Only Hamas Has These Rockets
    by ANNA AHRONHEIM, JERUSALEM POST STAFF, https://www.jpost.com/
    Israeli jets struck Hamas targets in response to rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.
    The Israeli Air Force struck 20 Hamas terror targets across the Gaza Strip early Wednesday morning after long range rockets struck a home in the southern city of Beersheba while another fell in the sea next to a central Israeli city. IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis held Hamas responsible for the attack.
    Hamas “creates an atmosphere of terror in the demonstrations near the border fence, where grenades have been thrown in recent weeks,” Manelis said.

    Hamas and Islamic Jihad had earlier denied responsibility for the rocket fire. “We reject any irresponsible attempt to destroy the Egyptian efforts,” to reach a ceasefire agreement with Israel, the joint statement said, “including the rocket fire last night.”

Here Comes the ECB with a “Bubble” Warning, After it Caused the Most Absurd Bond Bubble Ever

  • Here Comes the ECB with a “Bubble” Warning, After it Caused the Most Absurd Bond Bubble Ever
    by , https://wolfstreet.com/
    “The ECB cannot and should not turn a blind eye to risks to financial stability.”

    “Maintaining financial stability is about two things: First, it is about preventing the build-up of bubbles; second, it is about making the system more resilient,” said ECB Executive Board Member and Vice-Chair of the ECB’s Supervisory Board, Sabine Lautenschläger, today in a speech. It’s not often that central bankers are allowed to use the B-word in public, except when denying that bubbles exist, or when denying that they can be identified if they do exist.

    “Prices of several asset classes are influenced by the central bank’s policies,” she said. And these policies of the ECB include:

    * A negative interest rate policy (NIRP), with the ECB’s deposit rate a negative -0.4%;
    * An asset purchase program (QE) where the ECB buys government bonds, corporate bonds, asset backed securities, and covered bonds.

    These policies have driven yields of many government bonds and some corporate bonds into the negative. The ECB’s balance sheet has swollen with assets. Borrowing for some countries and companies has become essentially free. Asset prices have surged, including the prices of homes, stocks, bonds, commercial real estate, etc.

    Even at the riskiest end, junk bond yields dropped to a ludicrously low 2.1% by October 30 last year (ICE BofAML Euro High Yield Index Effective Yield), though they have lost some steam since (when bond yields fall, bond prices rise). These policies have triggered the most dizzyingly absurd corporate bond bubble ever.
