  • Well, well, well … It turns out Building 7 was (is!) the “9/11 Smoking Gun” after all.

    #911Justice – NOW!

    • And there were no airplanes wreckage into the Pentagone and into a field in Pennsylvania to be seen.

      I pray the Rosary to hasten the Return of Jesus, which return is very near according to prophecies, because I have seen enough bullshit.

  • People in the West realized that the West is decadent and weak and even ruling elites realized that.

    It was like that in the days of Noah and we are now in the return of the days of Noah just before the Second Coming of Jesus and I pray the Rosary to hasten His Glorious return because I have really seen enough bullshit.

  • This puts me in mind of a rapist complaining that his victim was not cooperative and dared to slap him. Mass murderers and criminals against humanity crying for help against their victim like wounded bullies.

    • right on, LOLOL. well it’s no laughing matter…

    Asymmetric-warfare-changes-everything update:
    ​ ​We are the Houthis and we’re coming to town. With the spectacular attack on Abqaiq, Yemen’s Houthis have overturned the geopolitical chessboard in Southwest Asia – going as far as introducing a whole new dimension: the distinct possibility of investing in a push to drive the House of Saud out of power…
    ​ ​The only missile parts shown by the Saudis so far come from a Yemeni Quds 1 cruise missile. According to Brigadier General Yahya Saree, spokesman for the Sana’a-based Yemeni Armed Forces, “the Quds system proved its great ability to hit its targets and to bypass enemy interceptor systems.” …
    ​ ​My conversations with sources in Tehran over the past two years have ascertained that the Houthis’ new drones and missiles are essentially copies of Iranian designs assembled in Yemen itself with crucial help from Hezbollah engineers.
    Professor Mohammad Marandi from the University of Tehran, who has very close relations with the Foreign Ministry, is adamant: “It didn’t come from Iran. If it did, it would be very embarrassing for the Americans, showing they are unable to detect a large number of Iranian drones and missiles. That doesn’t make sense.”…
    ​ ​Now we are entering a whole new dimension in asymmetric hybrid war.
    ​ ​In the – horrendous – event that Washington would decide to attack Iran, egged on by the usual neocon suspects, the Pentagon could never hope to hit and disable all the Iranian and/or Yemeni drones. The US could expect, for sure, all-out war. And then no ships would sail through the Strait of Hormuz. We all know the consequences of that.
    ​ ​Which brings us to The Big Surprise. The real reason there would be no ships traversing the Strait of Hormuz is that there would be no oil in the Gulf left to pump. The oil fields, having been bombed, would be burning.

    ​ ​In comments to reporters on Wednesday, President Trump is continuing to reject the idea of starting a war with Iran. After dismissing Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) calls, saying not starting a war was a sign of strength, he continued to roast Graham, citing Graham’s support for the Iraqi War, and saying reporters should ask “how did going into Iraq work out?“

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has during talks with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman called for an unbiased investigation to be carried out into the recent attack on Saudi oil facilities on 14 September, the president’s press service reported.
    ​ ​”The issue of the attack on Saudi oil refineries has been discussed [during talks]. Vladimir Putin expressed his concern with regard to the situation and has called for conducting a thorough and unbiased investigation of the incident”, the statement said.

    • Excellent analysis.

    • yes, it was a well-thought-out demostration of what the enemies of KSA/Israel/USA/UK can do. as long as Israel and KSA are vulnerable to the same kind of attacks that can’t be stopped by their current weapons systems, the zionist war-mongers won’t be pushing Trump into bombing or invading Iran. as NK’s nuke deters the war-mongers, low-flying drones and cruise missiles of Houthis/Hezbulla/Iran deters the war-mongers.

  • First podcast I’ve watched, thanks for this Caitlin & Tim. My boycott of the MSM presstitutes in Australia is coming unstuck. Have watched coverage on both SBS and ABC regards this story, and its so mind numbingly predictable. The Imperialist propaganda is so blatant.
    As always, the Houthis are always described as ‘Iranian backed’ or ‘Iranian proxies’. Even more vile, as you pointed out is the virtual silence by these stenographers; in fact, censorship by omission of the horrific slaughter in Yemen, and who has been fully supporting this slaughter, not just in providing weapons to the Sandi’s, but helping blockade Yemeni Ports as well as providing military advisors.
    The West, including Australia, is fully complicit in war crimes. Hypocrisy on a vast scale.
    Oh, and regards Russiagate, I stopped listening to 3RRR (community radio station in Melbourne) when they too, repeatedly regurgitated the whole Putin got Trump elected: “the Russians absolutely interfered in the US elections for a fact” as one breakfast announcer raved a couple years back. Havn’t listened to them since. Thanks for your work.

  • Good dialogue but….
    It is increasingly clear to many Americans that the empire like movements originating
    within the American government are and have been orchestrated by a criminal cabal
    whose goal is to extract as many assets and value from countries as possible. This cabal has
    surreptitiously inserted itself throughout the governing structure of America to perpetuate
    their dominance through criminal enterprises. Countries that cannot be controlled mainly because their monetary system is not subject to the powerful worldwide central banking scheme are systematically attacked and
    reduced to rubble by these anti-humans.
    So I hope you will recognize that a sizable portion of Americans have and are waking to this
    death cult overlay on American values and peaceful purposes. We are united in our
    determination to return our original constitution and establish a monetary system minus the central
    banking disaster, bring our troops home and live peacefully and generously with all the tribes of earth!

    • A quick technical tip, June: If you compose your comments offline in a text editor (which is usually good practice), turn “word wrapping” OFF before selecting and copying it. Some text editors use temporary hard line breaks to do word wrapping. These hard breaks can remain in the text and get copied along with everything else until you turn word wrapping off, and that’s what I’m seeing in your comment.

      I’m not as uncritical of our Constitution’s original design and intent as you seem to be. I think the rich white men who drafted it were progressive and enlightened in their aspirations, for the time, but underlying that was an imperative to protect their own class’s wealth, property, power, and privileges from the hoi polloi. The Constitution’s worst flaws are that it did not mandate press diversity and independence (an understandable oversight at the time), it did not adequately ban personal conflicts of interest in and “indirect” bribery of politicians (an unforgivable oversight), and it is far too difficult to amend and improve (a calculated decision to ensure that the aforementioned wealth, property, power, and privileges could not be threatened in the future). No quibbles from me with the rest of what you said, though! Happy copying-and-pasting!
