Documentary: Weapons of Mass Deception

It’s hard to believe that this documentary is already ten years old . . . After watching this, can you see how most of the “big” news events of the last decade have been manufactured? -LW

WMD, a 100 minute non-fiction film, explores this story with the findings of a gutsy, media insider-turned-outsider, former network journalist, Danny Schechter, who is one of America’s most prolific media critics.

Schechter says he “self-embedded” himself in his living room to monitor media coverage, by fastidiously tracking the TV coverage on a daily basis.

He wrote thousands of words daily about the coverage for, the world’s largest online media issues network, and then collected his columns, blogs and articles in a recently published book, EMBEDDED: Weapons of Mass Deception (Prometheus Books).

He has continued his one-man investigation with WMD, a two-hour indie non-fiction film that asks the questions that his media colleagues refused to confront before, during and after the war. Featuring footage from inside Iraq, and inside the media, WMD tracks the media war through February 2004.

EXOPOLITICS: Politics, Government, and Law in the Universe: Censored by CIA on Cosby/Obama, journalists to launch “Inside-Out” News agency with mainstream access

This is a long article, since it includes the two censored articles that led to the announcement of “Inside-Out News”.


  • Alfred Webre explains how cancelled his contract because of Obama “Mars Jump Room” news submission.
  • Veteran CBS Producer Jon Kelly was blacklisted for reporting on Bill Cosby’s involvement with MK-ULTRA.
  • Alfred and Jon announce the launch of their own news agency, “Inside-Out News”.
  • Jon Kelly attempts to decode unconscious messages in Bill Cosby’s statement using “mirror-reflected audio” technique
  • The decoded messages portray Bill Cosby as needing healing, justice, and closure.
  • Similarities between Cosby’s supposed behaviour and the deaths of David Carradine and Robin Williams, as possible examples of MK-ULTRA torture/programming.

Censored by CIA on Cosby/Obama, journalists to launch “Inside-Out” News agency with mainstream access


VANCOUVER, Nov. 22, 2014 – Jon Kelly, a veteran CBS producer who spent four years as Vancouver UFO Examiner, and Alfred Lambremont Webre, an international journalist and war crimes judge and former Seattle Exopolitics Examiner, announced today on ExopoliticsTV they are launching a new “Inside-Out” News agency with mainstream access, after concluding both their reporting accounts had been terminated as a result of covert censorship by a CIA/Operation Mockingbird unit at

“Inside-Out” News

“Inside-Out” News agency will be a cooperative of Truth journalists with contractual rights to mainstream access and whose mission is to investigate and report news that turns the Matrix and consensual reality “Inside-Out”,  and to deconstruct the memes of the Matrix, which is the mission of the current mainstream.

CIA censors Jon Kelly exposé of Bill Cosby as CIA MKULTRA disinfo asset

A “news censorship and blacklisting timeline” (See below) shows that on Nov. 20, 2014 canceled and blacklisted Jon Kelly.  Mr. Kelly writes, “Status: Highly plausible offering context for an attempt by to silence disclosure of Bill Cosby’s CIA MKULTRA relationship (cited in the article) in mainstream news, deny access to the publishing platform and journalistic affiliation while inflicting economic damages upon the author. In 2003, Jon Kelly was blacklisted from Coast to Coast AM for attempting to report Arnold Schwarzenegger’s role as a CIA operative prior to the California elections.”

On Nov. 22, 2011, while Alfred Lambremont Webre was sitting as a Judge on the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal delivering a judgment holding U.S. President George W. Bush and Tony Blair guilty of Nuremberg level war crimes for the 2003 illegal invasion of Iraq, the CIA/Mockingbird unit in deleted Mr.Webre’s expose of Barack Obama as a secret member of the CIA and its 1980s Mars teleportation program on grounds that he was “publishing false news” and blacklisted him from

Ironically, Webre the wrote “This judgment convicting George Bush Jr. came on 11/22/11, 48 years after the assassination of John F. Kennedy on 11/22/63 in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, TX., where George Bush Sr., then an undercover CIA agent, was photographed next to the Texas School Depository. George Bush Jr. is now subject to arrest, prosecution and conviction of war crimes by any one of 117 nations that are states parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.  The wheels of Justice grind slowly but they grind exceedingly fine.”[1]

Solution: “Inside-Out” A news agency with mainstream access

As their conversation unfolds (See video above), a solution to more widespread awakening among the population is to ensure that the “Inside-Out” news that Truth movement journalists such as Jon Kelly, Alfred Lambremont Webre are creating have access to a wider arena in the mainstream media.

Both Kelly and Webre have a strong YouTube, Facebook, and website presences in the awakened communities. “Inside-Out” News will operate on the basis of the same sort of mainstream access other news aggregators like have, thus allowing their stories on topics enter mainstream newspapers.

Launch details for Inside-Out News will be announced in the near future.

AT&T plays hardball: CEO says no more fiber investment ’til net neutrality is settled

Comcast says, “We want an Internet slow lane, so we can charge more for the Internet.”

President Obama says, “FCC: Treat the Internet like a utility, to promote ‘Net neutrality.”

AT&T says, “We’re not improving our network until ‘Net neutrality is settled.”

What do you say?

AT&T President and CEO Randall Stephenson testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington on May 11, 2011.

Internet service providers have warned that harsh regulation on net neutrality could affect Internet infrastructure investment. AT&T is now making that a reality.

AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said on Wednesday that the company is putting a hold on the buildout of its fiber network until the Federal Communications Commission comes to a decision on net neutrality regulations.

The announcement comes just a day after President Obama came out firmly in favor of reclassification, a move that would give the FCC greater regulatory power over Internet service providers (ISPs) like AT&T. ISPs have rallied hard against this plan. ISPs have rallied hard against this plan.

“We can’t go out and invest that kind of money deploying fiber to 100 cities not knowing under what rules those investments will be governed,” Stephenson said during a a conference.

“We think it is prudent to just pause and make sure we have line of sight and understanding as to what those rules would look like,” he said.


How Google Lost Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars in an Hour and Half

What’s going on with the Internet?

How Google Lost Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars in an Hour and Half | WIRED

For a brief window this morning, something strange happened to the internet.

At approximately 9:15am ET, display ads disappeared across mega-trafficked media websites such as BuzzFeed, Time, Forbes, Gawker and Vox, replaced instead by big, blank spaces. Some were understandably pleased at the mini-vacation they got from companies making money from their eyeballs, but those running the websites weren’t so happy—and neither was Google. It was the one who was supposed to supply those ads.

The end result? A ton of lost money for all those websites—and for Google. How much? That’s hard to say. But Google alone likely lost several hundred thousands dollars in about an hour and a half—and the other sites lost a comparable amount, if not more.

In the wake of the ads outage, Google scrambled to figure out what caused it, and by 10:45am, most websites were back to normal. Google posted a quick memo—which reads like a sigh of relief—saying things were back up and running.

The glitch was caused by the ad tool called DoubleClick for Publishers, or DFP—a Google advertising service used by many websites to manage ad operations, and whose content is hosted on Google machines rather than the servers that hold the publisher’s own content.

Google says it doesn’t publicly reveal its revenue stream for DoubleClick for Publishers, instead lumping it in under “other” revenue on its earnings reports. That includes anything that doesn’t come from ad revenue on its own websites or from websites that use its AdSense ad network. Based on the company’s 2013 annual report, it made $568,000 per hour in “other” revenue across the internet. Though this includes more than DoubleClick dollars, we can roughly estimate that the company lost something approaching $1 million from this morning’s ad server hiccup.

The last time Google’s DFP system failed was more than a year ago, in March 2013, when the service was down for several hours. This sort of outage may please you in some way, but don’t get used to it. The internet, after all, runs on ads.


No more bailouts: BoE chief says banks won’t be save by taxpayers

The new global rules will force creditors to bear banks’ losses, ensuring that taxpayers’ money should never be used again to bail out banks.New rules are being proposed that will force creditors, not taxpayers, to carry the losses of banks deemed “too big to fail.” The plans come after Western taxpayers were asked to pay trillions of dollars to bail out banks in the 2008 financial crisis.

The proposal was unveiled by Mark Carney, chairman of the Switzerland-based Financial Stability Board (FSB) and governor of the Bank of England.

The new rules would require big banks to hold much more money against losses, which Carney called a “watershed” moment, adding that the bailout by the taxpayers in 2008 and 2009 was “totally unfair.”

“Once implemented, these agreements will play important roles in enabling globally systemic banks to be resolved [wound down] without recourse to public subsidy and without disruption to the wider financial system,” he said in a statement.

Under the new system, bank shareholders and lenders to banks such as bondholders would be the first in line to take the brunt of any future losses, if banks cannot pay creditors out of their own resources. Banks may also be expected to scrap dividends and rein in bonuses.

The new rules are a long way off being implemented, however. They will need to go through consultation and most new rules will only take effect by 2019. They would also require big global banks to hold a minimum amount of cash to make sure they don’t have to run to the government for emergency help.

From January 2019, big global banks like HSBC and Goldman Sachs would have to have an equity buffer of at least 16-20 percent of their risk-weighted assets.

The new buffer, known as total loss absorbing capacity or TLAC, must be at least twice the leverage ratio of a bank.

This is a separate measure of capital to total assets. Some of the buffer must also be held at major overseas subsidiaries to allay fears from regulators outside the country a bank is based in.

G20 leaders are expected to back the proposal later this week and it will be under public consultation until February 2 next year. Regulators have already ear marked thirty banks which they say are “systematically important” globally.

Anthony Browne, of the British Bankers’ Association, welcomed the proposals.

“The banking industry strongly supports this work, which is a really important step in ending ‘too big to fail’ and ensuring that never again will taxpayers have to step in to bail out banks,” he said, as quoted by the UK media.

However, David Ereira, a partner at the law firm Linklaters, told Reuters’ that the new rules would not put a stop to large global banksdeemed “too big to fail”getting into difficulty and that a number of politically problematic details still had to be hammered out.

It was revealed in 2011 by the Guardian that since 2007 the UK government had spent £1.162 trillion at various points on bailing out the banks.

One of the banks bailed out by the taxpayer was RBS, which despite also being hit by a number of other scandals, rewarded its top bankers £500 million in bonuses last year.



Magna Carta for the Web

Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web 25 years ago. So it’s worth a listen when he warns us: There’s a battle ahead. Eroding net neutrality, filter bubbles and centralizing corporate control all threaten the web’s wide-open spaces. It’s up to users to fight for the right to access and openness. The question is, What kind of Internet do we want?

Obama urges FCC to reclassify internet amid net neutrality protests

The president’s remarks, posted to the White House website early Monday by way of both a video message and a written statement are among the most straightforward yet spoken by Obama after long advocating for net neutrality but publicly doing little in the face of the FCC’s looming decision on the matter.?United States President Barack Obama said Monday that the Federal Communications Commission should heed calls from the public concerning the future of the internet and “implement the strongest possible rules to protect net neutrality.”

In the coming months, the FCC is expected to finally announce its determination on what rules will be put in place pertaining to how Internet Service Providers, or ISPs, deliver content to customers across the US. Following months of discussions, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is expected to back a “hybrid” proposal that would “separate broadband into two distinct services: a retail one, in which consumers would pay broadband providers for Internet access; and a back-end one, in which broadband providers serve as the conduit for websites to distribute content,” according to a Wall Street Journal exclusive published recently. Much to the chagrin of open internet advocates, however, such a purported plan would not outright eliminate the ability for ISPs to create a multi-tier system in which the speed of that distribution differs depending on price.

“Simply put: No service should be stuck in a ‘slow lane’ because it does not pay a fee. That kind of gatekeeping would undermine the level playing field essential to the Internet’s growth,” Obama said Monday.

The campaign to reclassify ISPs as common carriers, like utility companies, has intensified in recent weeks on the eve of Wheeler’s impending unveiling of the new proposal, evidenced on Friday by coordinated demonstrations at a dozen cities across the US waged by activists equipped with signs inscribed with slogans such as “Save the Internet.” Outside the White House last Friday, protesters gathered to ask the president to take action before the FCC, and two days earlier an international day of action dubbed the “Million Mask March” saw activists take to the streets in cities around the world to ask for, among other things, a free and open internet.

Obama has previously advocated for maintaining an open internet while on the campaign trail and in office, but the reality of achieving as much has waned in recent months following a landmark decision last January in which the US Court of Appeals in Washington, DC found the FCC had erred by insisting ISPs must give customers equal access to all lawful content on the web. Activists responded to the ruling at the time by petitioning the president to “direct the FCC to reclassify Internet service providers as ‘common carriers’ which, if upheld, would give the FCC a distinct set of regulatory tools to promote net neutrality.” After garnering more than 105,000 signatures, however, the White House said in a statement last February that the final decision on the fate of net neutrality lies in the hands of the FCC, a an independent agency albeit one with an Obama appointee, Wheeler, at its helm.

On Monday, the president again acknowledged “The FCC is an independent agency, and ultimately this decision is theirs alone.” Nevertheless, Obama said he wants Wheeler and company to adopt “simple, common-sense steps that reflect the Internet” as it exists already, and described last January’s appeals ruling as “Unfortunate.”

“I believe the FCC should create a new set of rules protecting net neutrality and ensuring that neither the cable company nor the phone company will be able to act as a gatekeeper, restricting what you can do or see online,” Obama said.

“So the time has come for the FCC to recognize that broadband service is of the same importance and must carry the same obligations as so many of the other vital services do. To do that, I believe the FCC should reclassify consumer broadband service under Title II of the Telecommunications Act — while at the same time forbearing from rate regulation and other provisions less relevant to broadband services. This is a basic acknowledgment of the services ISPs provide to American homes and businesses, and the straightforward obligations necessary to ensure the network works for everyone — not just one or two companies.”

Moments before the president’s statement was published to the White House early Monday, protests were still occurring, at least in Washington, DC. There outside of Wheeler’s house, a group of net neutrality activists showed up shortly before 7 a.m. and blockaded his driveway with a sit-in demonstration that at one point led to a five-minute long conversation with the chairman before he ultimately retired realizing he would be unable to leave in his car.

“We’re blockading Tom Wheeler’s driveway because he’s made it clear that when he goes to work, he’s not working for the public, he’s working for Comcast, Verizon and AT&T, the companies that used to pay his salary when he was a lobbyist for the cable industry,” Kevin Zeese, co-director of the group Popular Resistance, said outside the Georgetown resident early Monday. “The future of the internet is a life or death matter for marginalized people all over the world. We cannot in good conscience allow this corrupt official to carry on with business as usual.”

Yet as word circulated soon after concerning the president’s plea to the FCC, activists fell short of expressing outright optimism and asked Obama to see to it that Wheeler acts on the voice of not just the commander-in-chief, but the millions of Americans passionate about protecting net neutrality.

“At this point it should be unthinkable that Tom Wheeler would defy both the American public *and* the President, but we hope President Obama is prepared to demote him if he doesn’t move forward in good faith with Title II reclassification,” Fight for the Future co-director Holmes Wilson said early Monday.
