Political Pedophilia – An open source investigation

the Corbett Report explores how the alternative media can help shape the open source investigation into the practice of political pedophilia, and expose the real perpetrators. As more and more information surfaces on both sides of the Atlantic about the pedophilia rings operating in the highest echelons of political, business and entertainment circles, even the establishment press is being forced to cover the story. But is the very same establishment that covered up these horrors for decades going to break the dam on this sensitive and paradigm-changing information? Of course not…

Requiem for the suicided: Gary Webb

Was Gary Webb murdered? Friends claimed Webb had told them any violent death he suffered would NOT be suicide, yet he apparently did take his own life. Others said he had talked about “government” people following him and snooping close to his home. Meet the man who knew the secrets of the CIA’s Dark Alliance. From the jungles of Nicaragua to the mean streets of south-central LA, Gary Webb’s groundbreaking journalism uncovered a scandal so huge that the story could not be allowed to continue. Help us honour the memory of this intrepid reporter by exploring the suspicious death and passing on the life’s work of Gary Webb.” Some will believe these stories, some will not, but perhaps more important than how Webb met his tragic death is the lesson we can find in the way his groundbreaking work was buried in the mainstream media with lies and slanders. It’s a familiar story but at leat in this case, belatedly, the media (or part of it) ‘fessed up to what had been done. Too late …

Stolen Kosovo: the Czech Documentary

a film by Václav Dvořák [with English subtitles] From the Wikipedia entry on the film: “Stolen Kosovo (Czech: Uloupené Kosovo, Serbian: Украдено Косово, Ukradeno Kosovo) is a 2008 Czech language documentary by director Václav Dvořák (b. 1948), about events during and following the Kosovo War.  The documentary describes the situation in Kosovo, first in a short overview of the history of the area, followed by the 1990s conflicts and bombing of Serbia by NATO forces in 1999 and ending with the situation after the Kosovo War.  The documentary focuses on 1990s in the time of Slobodan Milošević’s rule as well as on numerous interviews of Serbian civilians and, less, of Albanian insurgents against the Milošević regime. Although the Czech Television (Česká televize) was one of the sponsors of the documentary, it delayed broadcasting it several times, claiming the documentary was “unbalanced” and marked with “pro-Serbian bias”, and so “the tone of the documentary could cause negative emotions.”   Václav Dvořák, the director, responded that the same could be said for “Holocaust documentaries, where the Nazi Germany …

UNCOUNTED: The True Story of the California Primary

When Hillary Clinton claimed victory in California, a staggering 40% of the total ballots had not been counted. Why? because they were “provisional.” What does a “provisional ballot” mean? Non-US citizens need to venture into the labyrinthine nature of the presidential electoral process to understand that. But put simply, as worst case scenario it’s a way of allowing people to vote while being able to ensure their votes almost certainly will not count. Given this, it may not be surprising that US elections are ranked lowest among all western “democracies” for fairness and transparency. Do watch this documentary and ask yourself the following… – How would the “international community” and the mainstream media react if this level of chaos, confusion, incompetence and open fraud had been reported during the 2012 Russian presidential election? – How many articles would you have seen by now in the Guardian, NYT, WaPo et al condemning Russian “tyranny and corruption”?

Closing down Dr Burzynski – updated

from BlackCatte’s blog Chemotherapy often doesn’t work. Everyone admits it’s not a perfect treatment. So, why, when a man comes along with a new approach that seems to yield amazing results, does the US medical establishment and the FDA unite to try and close him down and even put him in jail? If you believe Big Pharma is all about curing people and increasing human wellbeing – you probably shouldn’t watch this movie. Ultimately, it’s not about whether Burzynski’s therapy is a complete cure or simply another partial answer, it’s about whether people have the right to full information on all medical options, and whether the medial establishment is there to serve us or the drug company monopolies. Oh btw – after twenty years of calling him a fraud, the United States stole Burzynski’s patent and registered his therapy for themselves. No, really. UPDATE June 11 2016 When OffG republished this article yesterday I didn’t know Burzynski’s trial was currently ongoing. Pure coincidence. But since this article has attracted some attention, I thought it might …

VIDEO: The curious incident of the polonium in the nightclub – UPDATED

This short, ever so slightly tongue-in-cheek, documentary interviews material witnesses and renowned experts to probe into some of the gaping holes left in the official “explanation” of Mr Litvinenko’s murder. Read the full RI column here. See update below video UPDATE: After this article appeared we were contacted by one of the makers of the documentary.

So, what happened to balanced broadcasting guys?

TeleSur interview: Examining the Syrian war chessboard

  The war in Syria is an unparalleled crisis. It has gone far beyond an internal political struggle, and is marked by a complex array of forces that the U.S. Empire hopes to command: Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Kurdistan, Iran, Lebanon, Iraq and more. To simplify this web of enemies and friends, Abby Martin interviews Dr. Vijay Prashad, professor of International Studies at Trinity College and author of several books.

Press TV documentary: The Power behind the throne

Investigating into today’s power structure in the UK and the role played by the British monarchy, this eye-opening documentary reveals the grossly disproportionate and undemocratic wealth and power of Britain’s Royal Family. The programme educates the viewers about the sheer wealth of Britain’s unelected monarchy and trails through the various assets and sources of income to which a random family, born into a historic mesh of multiracial kings and queens, unfairly believe they are entitled. The UK with its dark and scattered history of political struggles has become the playground of monarchic power and influence. The documentary exposes all the main instruments of wealth of the British monarchy and provides clear commentary as to why Britain may be the most contradictory democracy in the world.
