Oliver Villar: It’s a war FOR drugs & a war OF terror!

Tuesday, July 31st, 11 a.m. to noon Central (9-10 Pacific) on NoLiesRadio.org (archived here a few hours after broadcast).

Guest: Oliver Villar, author (with Drew Cottle), Cocaine, Death Squads and the War on Terror: US Imperialism and Class Struggle in Columbia.

If the “criminal state” known as Israel is the Empire’s dagger in the heart of the Middle East, another criminal state – Columbia – is the imperial dagger in the heart of Latin America. In both cases, the Empire is waging Orwellian “wars” supposedly against terror and drugs. But in reality, these are wars OF terror and FOR drugs…wars of genocide against the populations of each region, characterized by unending false-flag attacks and Big Lies. Millions of Latin Americans and Middle Easterners have been murdered by these Orwellian wars of genocide. Get the details from Oliver Villar…and then join FARC and others waging a just war against the most evil empire in history.

Oliver Villar was born in Mendoza, Argentina and has lived in Sydney for most of his life. In 2008 he completed his PhD on the political economy of contemporary Colombia in the context of the cocaine drug trade at the then UWS Latin American Research Group (LARG). Whilst completing his PhD, Oliver’s research interests in political economy, Latin America and the global drug trade followed teaching positions in politics at UWS and Macquarie University. His academic interests have involved an engagement with the sizeable Latin American immigrant community in Sydney and Melbourne and international concerns, such as with political and policy concerns over the ‘globalisation’ of crime and terrorism and the underlying causes of the processes involved.

Dear Kevin,

I have listened to the Bursill Interview and will be listening to your interview with Adam Syed today. I have regular contact with both as I have known John for years since the first 9/11 truth conference in March 2008 and I was (on the side) involved in bringing about Richard’s Gage’s presentation in Wellington.

I have had long and very enjoyable Skype conversations with Adam about the CIT research and the 9/11 movement in general.

I have now done two interviews with Jim Fetzer (Thank you again for introducing us) and I have to confess to having greatly enjoyed my conversations with Jim. I find him a good listener (Something I miss in John by the way) and an intelligent and critical interpreter and a fearless explorer of ideas.

If you would be willing to spend the time to listen to my first interview with Jim you will find that I actually offer a solution for the controversies swirling around which as far as I am concerned are all because we are left with material in most cases which are open to interpretation and thus enable the struggle of egos which is generally a bad thing in any movement.

As you are currently engaging in what I think is very courageous series of interviews with different and opposing voices I would like to be able to jump in the fray if you would have me and give my opinion and possible solutions to further our research and find out what happened and how we can diffuse the antagonism within the movement.

Wacky-pedia strips me of my Ph.D.

Wikipedia has been defaming me for six years. Please help fix this problem.

I hold a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Wisconsin, Masters Degrees in English and French from San Francisco State University, and a Ph.D. in African Languages and Literature (Arabic-Islamic Studies) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  Here is Wikipedia’s description of my educational credentials:

That’s just one of the dozens of insane hallucinations and bald-face lies that have been plaguing my Wikipedia page ever since it first went up.

There is a whole section entitled “Recent History” that lies about events five years ago, and has no recent history at all, true OR false. This section was written by Brian Good, a psychopathic sex stalker who sexually harassed female activists by forcing them to listen to sickening descriptions of his jealous fantasies of them having sex with me, William Rodriguez, and other leading 9/11 activists. He cyber-stalks me (and William Rodriguez), apparently due to his psychotic jealousy. Why a certified loon’s mendacious and incoherent ravings about alleged events five years ago should be my “Recent History” is a mystery that only Wikipedia’s editors can fathom.

Then there is the claim that I expressed support for three holocaust revisionists in a “documented email exchange.”  The claim is that this email exchange happened in 2005. But at that time I had never even heard of two of the three revisionists I supposedly supported!  There is in fact no documentation of any such email, just a claim by a Zionist stalker with a conspiracy website.  Since when can one blogger’s unsupported allegations about contents of private emails be a legitimate source for an encyclopedia?!

These are just a few of the dozens of lies and incoherent attempts at libel that litter my Wikipedia page. I have repeatedly tried to correct the false items, to no avail. Obviously someone at Wikipedia has an agenda.

New Syria Press TV interview; Night of Power & 9/11 truth

Sunni Ship sent this wonderful post on 9/11 truth and the Night of Power, the climactic night of Ramadan: http://ummahphantom.wordpress.com/2012/07/27/night-of-destiny-campaign-for-911-truth/
Meanwhile, I just did another Press TV interview on Syria. It came out better than expected, considering that I was feeling slow-witted from fasting, had no time to prepare, and kept losing contact with Press TV due to Zionist jamming and/or sunspots.
The infrastructure of Syria is facing dangerous levels and the fighting between the Syrian army and the armed groups is spreading to other cities as well.

Syria has been the scene of violence by armed groups since March 2011. The violence has claimed the lives of hundreds of people, including many security forces.

The Syrian government says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving factor behind the unrest and deadly violence while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Kevin Barrett, author and Islamic studies expert, to further discuss the issue.

The video also offers the opinion of an additional guest: Lawrence J. Korb from the Center for American Progress.

The following is an approximate transcript of the interview.

Press TV: Why do you think Syria has come under such a fierce campaign by the West, Washington’s Arab allies and Turkey?

Barrett: Well this is part of a destabilization campaign in the Middle East and I think there are two overall strategic reasons for this. One is that the US empire is trying to consolidate its position worldwide as it has been eclipsed by the fastest growing economies of the BRIC countries and secondly I think that the hard line like…Zionist in Israel are hoping to redraw the map of the Middle East in a way that is more favorable to them while they have the chance in their using American military power to do it.

And Zionists I think are hoping to break these countries up into smaller units that would never be able to pose any kind of strategic threat to Israel and we have seen this happen with Sudan, we have seen it happen to a certain extent with Iraq and we might see it happen in spades in Syria because Syria is perhaps the most right candidate for this kind of destabilization.

There are ethnic divisions, there are confessional divisions in Syria, they can be exploited by the masters of empire in their dividing conquer strategy and that is what they are doing and it is a tragedy that the Muslims of Syria in particular and the Christians as well are falling for this and in particular that the hard line Sunni Muslims who are sometimes called al-Qaeda, many of them are playing the game of the Zionist-American empire.

They have done this before, these are the same people who have run drugs for the CIA and harassed the Russians on paramilitary missions for the CIA and today some of these same people are back, are taking money and funding and direction from the US and Zionist empire in this war in Syria and it is a real tragedy.

I think Muslims need to unite against this kind of imperial meddling and against this kind of Zionist destabilization of the Middle East.

Press TV: Mr. Barrett the debate is going towards the fact that the opposition is trying to gain the upper hand in Syria. I mean we have referendum that was held in Syria and the reforms have been made there, why has this gone unseen in Syria?

Barrett: Well I think that the big international media, the Western media in particular is presenting only one side of the story here and I would like to take issue with one thing the other guest said which is that he is claiming that Turkey and Saudi Arabia are Muslim countries who are presumably not acting on behalf of any outside interest and of course that is complete nonsense.

Turkey is a member of NATO and it has been run by these hard line operation Gladio of NATO people forever who controlled Turkey partly through drug smuggling and criminality and yes, Turkey does have a more democratic and Islamic government now than it did in the past but the reason that it is taking NATO’s side in Syria is not because the Muslims of Turkey want that, it is because NATO is leaning on Turkey likewise Saudi Arabia is a puppet of the Zionist-American empire that props up the Western financial system by putting all of its oil money into the American dollar and in other ways helping to prop up the Western financial system.

And so these actors are not acting on behalf of the global Muslim community. They are acting on behalf of the American-Zionist empire which is ultimately controlled by eight big banking families.

So let us be very clear about that. The plan to destabilize Syria is a lot bigger than just the fact that asserts many of the Syrian people want reform and I agree with them . Syria needs reform, Syria does need a kind of a compromise between the different factions and it needs to change but the trend towards a foreign funded terrorist war on the government in Syria is a terribly destructive trend.

The only possible outcome of this as President Putin recently said is eternal civil war in Syria and this would be a horrifying prospect, anybody who cares about the outcome for the Syrian people. It might be a good prospect if you are somebody like Netanyahu who wants Syria to be taken out of the equation, wants Syria to not have any kind of military strength or unity with which it could confront the stolen Golan Heights and demand the rights of the Palestinian people.

So I think if the opposition in Syria had made the smart move and not accepted all of this military help from the outside and turned to terrorism, if instead they had bravely continued to demonstrate peacefully and they were brutally suppressed a couple of times but they should have kept with that high road as to the people of Tunisia and Egypt, and when certain groups in Syria did not and decided to join with this terrorist version on behalf of the Zionists and the Americans, this was a terrible, terrible mistake and I hope that it can still be rectified.

Press TV: Mr. Barrett, we have the West, the Arab League is in Turkey obviously seeking a regime change in Syria. Why is there this obsession with getting rid of the Bashar al-Assad government? Let me put forward the quotes to you by Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, he says that ‘we fear that if the current government is toppled by non-constitutional means, the opposition and the current government might simply swap places’?

Barrett: That is a good point and then there will be a civil war in the future. It is a terrible situation and you ask why is there this dedication to destabilizing Syria and pushing for regime change in Syria? And the answer is that these outside powers that are arming the armed gangs that are fighting against the Assad government in Syria are not interested in democratic rights of the Syrian people, they are obviously not interested in democratic rights of the people of Arabian Peninsula either.

Instead what they are interested in is destabilizing Syria, it is a thorn in the side of Israel and they are also interested in getting Syria out of the way of a perspective war on Iran or at least military pressure on Iran.

So it is a strategic move, it is certainly not any genuine concern with human rights and democracy.

Press TV: Mr. Barrett, the West says it is concerned according to Mr. Korb [the other guest of the program], the West is concerned about Syria but why isn’t it concerned about Bahrain or Saudi Arabia?

Barrett: Well again it is a strategic thing. I do not really believe the other guest is completely convinced by his own rhetoric, I am sure that he has gone to school long enough to learn that international strategic relations are governed by matters other than sort of concern with democracy and human rights for the Syrian people that he professes.

In fact the regimes in the [Persian] Gulf oil states are at least as oppressive and unrepresentative of their people as the Syrian government and the West is far from trying to push for any kind of democratization in those countries particularly Bahrain which is the base of US Fifth Fleet I believe and there it is the Khalifa regime is being propped up by the West in the face of a genuine peaceful popular uprising whereas over in Syria we have what may have begun as a peaceful popular uprising quickly morphing into a terrorist war against the regime supported by outside players.

And this is pretty outrageous. I mean if here in the US we had other countries funding terrorist attacking the US government that would be universally reviled and likewise I think that if outside Paris were meddling in any other country it would likewise be reviled.

I am not really sure where these masters of empire in places like Washington DC ever got the right to decide which nations can be destabilized by terrorism, by outside players and that is okay whereas other nations would never allow that to happen and I think ultimately it is just a matter of power, it might make rights and that is what is really going on and what I am hearing from this other guest really I am sorry to say, it sounds like just rank, it is admitting the stench of rank hypocrisy just like almost everything else we are hearing from the Western capitals these days.

“Free speech Friday” : Callers discuss holocaust revisionism

Truth Jihad Radio Fri. 7/27/12, 3-5 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Post your questions to my Facebook page.

Adam Syed

Today’s scheduled guest was Nick Kollerstrom, the author of the best book on the 7/7 London bombings, Terror on the Tube. (Watch the great new 7/7 video Kollerstrom and Farrell Are Dead.) Nick was going to discuss his holocaust revisionist scholarship, which got him witch-hunted out of University College of London:

The Auschwitz gas chamber illusion  (the article that got Nick thrown out of University College)

 The Walls of Auschwitz (the chemical evidence)

But for some reason we were unable to connect with Nick. So this show features callers including Adam Syed and Rolf Lindgren.

Nick was rescheduled for next Friday.

Alexander Cockburn and the hypocrisy of ‘Non-Proliferation’

By Kevin Barrett 
“Today, the Zionist-dominated US empire is seeking to establish a near-monopoly of nuclear weapons, which would allow that empire to use these weapons at will. To prevent their use, as Alexander Cockburn saw, we must arm the prospective victims.” 

Author-musician-educator Harrison Slater, JDL death threat victim Mark Glenn

Truth Jihad Radio Wed. 7/25/12, 3-5 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Post your questions to my Facebook page. 

First hour: Harrison Gradwell Slater is a Ph.D. musicologist, composer, performer, teacher, mystery novelist, and anti-nuclear activist. He writes: I totally admire your work.  Eliminating nuclear weapons will require a reconciliation of the Muslim and Christian worlds.  The West is guilty of ‘false witness against Thy neighbor,’ one of the most serious sins in Christianity.

Harrison is working on a very interesting project:

Recently I sent emails to Hillary Clinton, Lady Gaga, Mairead Maquire, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Cynthia McKinney, Carminho (a Portuguese fado singer), Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, Her Royal Empress Michiko of Japan, and Cindy Sheenan, to invite them to a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.

It will be in October 2012.  The purpose is to end nuclear weapons on this planet. 

There will be a film made about “The Path to Santiago: A Woman’s Voice.”  I’m not sure what form it will take, but it will evolve.  Several young filmmakers will be there.

Second hour: Radio host and journalist Mark Glenn of the Crescent and Cross Solidarity Movement, who recently responded with all guns blazing (metaphorically) to a death threat from the Jewish Defense League, which is listed as a leading terrorist group by the FBI.

Ellen Brown: Will LIBOR scandal sink the banksters?

Tuesday, July 24th, 11 a.m. to noon Central (9-10 Pacific) on NoLiesRadio.org (archived here a few hours after broadcast).

Guest: Ellen Brown, author of Web of Debt. Though the LIBOR rate-rigging scandal is being called the biggest finance swindle in history – which is saying something, given what we’ve been through during the past four years – the lamestream media isn’t covering the story properly (what else is new) and the citizens have not yet arrived at the gates of the City of London carrying torches and pitchforks.  Nonetheless, this could be the trigger for the long-awaited collapse of bankster-dom, according to Ellen: 

Barclays’ activities with the other banks appear to be criminal racketeering under federal RICO statutes, which authorize victims to recover treble damages; and class action RICO suits by victims are expected.
The blow to the banking defendants could be crippling.  RICO laws, which carry treble damages, have taken down the Gambino crime family, the Genovese crime family, Hell’s Angels, and the Latin Kings.

Will RICO suits also bring down the Eight Families

If not, I say get out the torches and pitchforks.

“Operation Terror” filmmaker Art Olivier, Pentagon-9/11 expert Barbara Honegger

Second hour: Barbara Honegger, former White House Policy Analyst, recently retired as Senior Military Affairs Journalist at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterrey. During the last decade or so of her tenure there, she became one of the world’s leading experts on what did and did not happen at the Pentagon on September 11th, 2001. Barbara will give us the short version today. You can see Barbara’s powerpoint from the Vancouver 9/11 Hearings here.

Haste to blame Iran reveals Bulgaria bombing as false-flag

by Kevin Barrett, for Press TV
Even before the dust had settled and the victims were laid to rest, the Israelis and their global media assets were blaming Iran for the attack in Burgas, Bulgaria.
The Washington Post, America’s second most influential Zionist newspaper, reported on Thursday: “Israeli and American officials have blamed the Iran-backed Lebanese militant group Hezbollah for the bombing.” Yet the Postarticle acknowledged that Bulgarian officials had not even identified the bomber!
This “rush to judgment” suggests that Israel, not Iran, is the probable author of the attack.
History shows that whenever authorities blame a convenient scapegoat before the evidence is in, the attack in question is almost certainly a false-flag event…
