Leaked ISIS Docs Show 70% of Recruits Don’t Even Know What Islam Is

Well, then, what are the demographics of ISIS?

Shredding the oft- and self-propagated notion the Islamic State is comprised of radical Muslims, the vast majority of the group’s recruits have only superficial knowledge about the religion of Islam — some even purchased the book “Islam for Dummies” just prior to joining.

An analysis of leaked Islamic State documents obtained by Syrian opposition site Zaman al-Wasl and undertaken by the Associated Press found 70 percent of recruits at the height of the group’s push for members only possessed basic knowledge of Shariah, laws derived from verses in the Quran, and “hadith,” the words and actions of the prophet Mohammed.

While 24 percent had attained an intermediate understanding of the religion, a mere 5 percent were considered advanced students of Islam.

That exact ignorance of the religion’s true tenets likely helped inflate Islamic State numbers. As the outlet explains:

“At the height of the Islamic State’s drive for foot soldiers in 2013 and 2014, typical recruits included the group of Frenchmen who went bar-hopping with their recruiter back home, the recent European convert who now hesitantly describes himself as gay, and two Britons who ordered ‘The Koran for Dummies’ and ‘Islam for Dummies’ from Amazon to prepare for jihad abroad. Their intake process complete, they were grouped in safe houses as a stream of imams came in to indoctrinate them, according to court testimony and interviews by the Associated Press…”

John Kerry Spills The Beans: Moderate Rebels Not So Moderate

What we suspected all along… “moderate rebels” are not that different from “extremist rebels”. “Ahrar al-Sham” sounds like a Luciferian name game. The definition of the word “sham” is:

• a thing that is not what it is purported to be : “a farce and a sham.”
• pretense : it all turned out to be sham and hypocrisy.

The root word of “sham” is “shame” and a sham is indeed a terrible shame when it involves the safety, lost lives and stolen resources of innocent people. It is also shameful to the perpetrators. The U.S. funds the “sham” activities. John Kerry explains.”Call in your dogs, Kerry,” we explain.  End this atrocious campaign to destroy Syria.

The videos – for some reason – do not seem to be working, so please read the article.

PA State Legislators Oppose Billboards Honoring USS Liberty Vets

This article could also be titled, “Pennsylvania politicians oppose billboards telling the truth.”  An excellent defense of the First Amendment by Alison Weir, Executive Director, If Americans Knew; Member, Friends of the Liberty. See also StopTheBlankCheck.org and Honor Liberty Veterans.

Fourteen Pennsylvania State Assembly Members are demanding the removal of a billboard honoring USS Liberty veterans, the most decorated crew since WWII. Israel attacked the Liberty in a sustained air and sea assault that killed 34 sailors and injured 174.

New revelations in attack on American spy ship from the Chicago Tribune

Bryce Lockwood, Marine staff sergeant, Russian-language expert, recipient of the Silver Star for heroism, ordained Baptist minister, is shouting into the phone.

“I’m angry! I’m seething with anger! Forty years, and I’m seething with anger!”…

[A]nger has been stoked by the declassification of government documents and the recollections of former military personnel, including some quoted in this article for the first time, which strengthen doubts about the U.S. National Security Agency’s position that it never intercepted the communications of the attacking Israeli pilots — communications, according to those who remember seeing them, that showed the Israelis knew they were attacking an American naval vessel.

The documents also suggest that the U.S. government, anxious to spare Israel’s reputation and preserve its alliance with the U.S., closed the case with what even some of its participants now say was a hasty and seriously flawed investigation…

McNamara retorted that “President [Lyndon] Johnson is not going to go to war or embarrass an American ally over a few sailors.”

9/11 Commission member Bob Kerry unmistakably states that 9/11 was a 30-year conspiracy

When questioned about the 9/11 conspiracy by an activist-journalist several years ago, 9/11 Commission member Bob Kerry unmistakably states that 9/11 was a “30-year conspiracy”. One might wonder, what did Kerry mean by this?

It is interesting to note how a 30-year time frame is used when it comes to true revelations about false flag attacks. In the meantime, it’s all propaganda.

Joe Plummer re his new book “Tragedy & Hope 101”

James Corbett has done it again! Another stellar video containing vital information for those who are curious to know why things are the way they are – the story behind the story, the news beyond the news.

This episode features Joe Plummer, author of a newly published,  user-friendly report on Carroll Quigley’s massive tome Tragedy & Hope. which you can download here. This1,350-page book was dedicated to “All who care and seek to help.” It was initially published in 1966 by The Macmillan Company,, but after it had sold almost 9,000 copies, the publishers held it under lock and key. They simply would not print more copies, in direct contradiction to Quigley’s wishes. Few had access to the book and those who owned it may not have been able to wade through it. It weighed more than five pounds – more than two reams of paper.

Lucky us! We can read Plummer’s free-to-read-online book, Tragedy and Hope 101, here.

Yes, the good Professor Quigley’s books told the world decades ago that the “elite” – of whom he was a member, himself – don’t play by the same rules we play by and that they had long ago designed and implemented a system to control the world, that was well underway by the 20th Century. For those who wish to live freely – to live at all – information, education and extreme transparency are essential. There is, quite literally, a secret, silent war on humanity – a goal to reduce its numbers by 90%.

It isn’t hyperbole to say representative government is nothing more than a carefully managed con game – that is all it is… It was a small group of men – less than a dozen – who were really in control of everything… The central banks were created specifically to dominate the governments of the nation states… income tax… Federal Reserve system…

Their goal is to control human behavior… They want to dominate all habitable portions of the world and that means they have to control human beings… The mindset of these individuals is best summarized in the word, sociopaths, or you can use the word psychopaths. They do not believe in any moral dimension… What works is what is “right” and what doesn’t work is “wrong”. So if you have an objective, what matters is that you achieve your objective. The legislative laws that others abide by absolutely do not apply…. And even if you didn’t hear them speak it, look at the things that they do!

The democracy we believe we live in is working on behalf of a very few, corrupt controllers. Do our votes count? Do our elected officials truly serve the country and its citizens? Not really, say Quigley and Plummer – and Cathy O’Brien. MK Ultra, “presidential model” sex slave O’Brien tells the tale in one of her online videos of being in the room years ago when George H.W. Bush promised those present that Bill Clinton would be the next president, then his own son W, followed by Hillary herself. Poor Hillary has now had to sit through an additional eight years of Obama before taking the throne herself. Her book, TranceFormation of America is also downloadable, free, on the Internet – and a “must read”.

The good news is, transparency is happening.

Reprise: JFK to 9/11 Everything is a Rich Man’s Trick

This is an amazingly well-researched video with lots of information that is not readily available – especially in the mainstream media.  A must-watch for anyone who wants to know more about what really happened on 11/22/1963 and 9/11/2001…. what really happened in World War II… and so on and so forth.

There’s a deeper reality here that the film doesn’t touch on. The russian revolution was largely a creation of western bankers ( http://www.infowars.com/rise-of-the-fourth-reich-alex-jones-interviews-jim-marrs/ ) creating the perfect enemy for the west.  And the communist ideology fits well with elite interests: pit the working class against the middle class, which is the only demographic that threatens the aristocracy due to their access to education, leisure and political power.   The ultra wealthy are lumped in with the bourgeois when the two are light years apart in social, political and economic interests.

U.S. Military Contractors Return In Droves To Iraq

America’s mercenaries smell the blood (and the money) and are returning to Iraq.

Mercs are a great thing for the U.S. government, in that they aren’t counted as “troops,” or as “boots on the ground,” even while they are both. The Defense Department can disavow any mischief the contractors get up like, such as murdering civilians, and keep the headcount low and the body count low when things are going well, or bad. It only costs money, and that America has a bottomless pool of, as long as it being spent on something violent abroad instead of helping Americans at home (which is socialism, sonny.)

So let’s look at some numbers…

Reprise: 25 Rules of Disinformation

In case you are confused by all the voices busily delivering contradictory messages on the TV, radio and Internet, here are some of the rules some troublemakers/ disinformation artists play by… (from http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/05/twenty-five-rules-of-disinformation.html)

1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. Regardless of what you know, don’t discuss it — especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it’s not reported, it didn’t happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.

2. Become incredulous and indignant. Avoid discussing key issues and instead focus on side issues which can be used show the topic as being critical of some otherwise sacrosanct group or theme. This is also known as the “How dare you!” gambit.

3. Create rumor mongers. Avoid discussing issues by describing all charges, regardless of venue or evidence, as mere rumors and wild accusations. Other derogatory terms mutually exclusive of truth may work as well. This method works especially well with a silent press, because the only way the public can learn of the facts are through such “arguable rumors”. If you can associate the material with the Internet, use this fact to certify it a “wild rumor” which can have no basis in fact.

4. Use a straw man. Find or create a seeming element of your opponent’s argument which you can easily knock down to make yourself look good and the opponent to look bad. Either make up an issue you may safely imply exists based on your interpretation of the opponent/opponent arguments/situation, or select the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Amplify their significance and destroy them in a way which appears to debunk all the charges, real and fabricated alike, while actually avoiding discussion of the real issues.

5. Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. This is also known as the primary attack the messenger ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as “kooks”, “right-wing”, “liberal”, “left-wing”, “terrorists”, “conspiracy buffs”, “radicals”, “militia”, “racists”, “religious fanatics”, “sexual deviates”, and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.

6. Hit and Run. In any public forum, make a brief attack of your opponent or the opponent position and then scamper off before an answer can be fielded, or simply ignore any answer. This works extremely well in Internet and letters-to-the-editor environments where a steady stream of new identities can be called upon without having to explain criticism reasoning — simply make an accusation or other attack, never discussing issues, and never answering any subsequent response, for that would dignify the opponent’s viewpoint.

7. Question motives. Twist or amplify any fact which could so taken to imply that the opponent operates out of a hidden personal agenda or other bias. This avoids discussing issues and forces the accuser on the defensive.

8. Invoke authority. Claim for yourself or associate yourself with authority and present your argument with enough “jargon” and “minutiae” to illustrate you are “one who knows”, and simply say it isn’t so without discussing issues or demonstrating concretely why or citing sources.

9. Play Dumb. No matter what evidence or logical argument is offered, avoid discussing issues with denial they have any credibility, make any sense, provide any proof, contain or make a point, have logic, or support a conclusion. Mix well for maximum effect.

10. Associate opponent charges with old news. A derivative of the straw man usually, in any large-scale matter of high visibility, someone will make charges early on which can be or were already easily dealt with. Where it can be foreseen, have your own side raise a straw man issue and have it dealt with early on as part of the initial contingency plans. Subsequent charges, regardless of validity or new ground uncovered, can usually them be associated with the original charge and dismissed as simply being a rehash without need to address current issues — so much the better where the opponent is or was involved with the original source.

11. Establish and rely upon fall-back positions. Using a minor matter or element of the facts, take the “high road” and “confess” with candor that some innocent mistake, in hindsight, was made — but that opponents have seized on the opportunity to blow it all out of proportion and imply greater criminalities which, “just isn’t so.” Others can reinforce this on your behalf, later. Done properly, this can garner sympathy and respect for “coming clean” and “owning up” to your mistakes without addressing more serious issues.

12. Enigmas have no solution. Drawing upon the overall umbrella of events surrounding the crime and the multitude of players and events, paint the entire affair as too complex to solve. This causes those otherwise following the matter to begin to loose interest more quickly without having to address the actual issues.

13. Alice in Wonderland Logic. Avoid discussion of the issues by reasoning backwards with an apparent deductive logic in a way that forbears any actual material fact.

14. Demand complete solutions. Avoid the issues by requiring opponents to solve the crime at hand completely, a ploy which works best for items qualifying for rule 10.

15. Fit the facts to alternate conclusions. This requires creative thinking unless the crime was planned with contingency conclusions in place.

16. Vanishing evidence and witnesses. If it does not exist, it is not fact, and you won’t have to address the issue.

17. Change the subject. Usually in connection with one of the other ploys listed here, find a way to side-track the discussion with abrasive or controversial comments in hopes of turning attention to a new, more manageable topic. This works especially well with companions who can “argue” with you over the new topic and polarize the discussion arena in order to avoid discussing more key issues.

18. Emotionalize, Antagonize, and Goad Opponents. If you can’t do anything else, chide and taunt your opponents and draw them into emotional responses which will tend to make them look foolish and overly motivated, and generally render their material somewhat less coherent. Not only will you avoid discussing the issues in the first instance, but even if their emotional response addresses the issue, you can further avoid the issues by then focusing on how “sensitive they are to criticism”.

19. Ignore proof presented, demand impossible proofs. This is perhaps a variant of the “play dumb” rule. Regardless of what material may be presented by an opponent in public forums, claim the material irrelevant and demand proof that is impossible for the opponent to come by (it may exist, but not be at his disposal, or it may be something which is known to be safely destroyed or withheld, such as a murder weapon). In order to completely avoid discussing issues may require you to categorically deny and be critical of media or books as valid sources, deny that witnesses are acceptable, or even deny that statements made by government or other authorities have any meaning or relevance.

20. False evidence. Whenever possible, introduce new facts or clues designed and manufactured to conflict with opponent presentations as useful tools to neutralize sensitive issues or impede resolution. This works best when the crime was designed with contingencies for the purpose, and the facts cannot be easily separated from the fabrications.

21. Call a Grand Jury, Special Prosecutor, or other empowered investigative body. Subvert the (process) to your benefit and effectively neutralize all sensitive issues without open discussion. Once convened, the evidence and testimony are required to be secret when properly handled. For instance, if you own the prosecuting attorney, it can insure a Grand Jury hears no useful evidence and that the evidence is sealed an unavailable to subsequent investigators. Once a favorable verdict (usually, this technique is applied to find the guilty innocent, but it can also be used to obtain charges when seeking to frame a victim) is achieved, the matter can be considered officially closed.

22. Manufacture a new truth. Create your own expert(s), group(s), author(s), leader(s) or influence existing ones willing to forge new ground via scientific, investigative, or social research or testimony which concludes favorably. In this way, if you must actually address issues, you can do so authoritatively.

23. Create bigger distractions. If the above does not seem to be working to distract from sensitive issues, or to prevent unwanted media coverage of unstoppable events such as trials, create bigger news stories (or treat them as such) to distract the multitudes.

24. Silence critics. If the above methods do not prevail, consider removing opponents from circulation by some definitive solution so that the need to address issues is removed entirely. This can be by their death, arrest and detention, blackmail or destruction of their character by release of blackmail information, or merely by proper intimidation with blackmail or other threats.

25. Vanish. If you are a key holder of secrets or otherwise overly illuminated and you think the heat is getting too hot, to avoid the issues, vacate the kitchen.
