Western ‘mediators’ are biased toward Kiev putschists

Gone are the days when certain Western nations possessed bona fide credentials as impartial mediators of conflicts. Today, even the Swiss, long regarded as neutral, are anything but, judging from their cooperation agreements with such NATO contrivances the as Partnership for Peace (PfP) and the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council (EAPC).

CIA bought up its own WMD-related weapons in Iraq

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has successfully spun a story to, among other media outlets, The New York Times, that claims that in its highly-classified Operation AVARICE it bought from the black market in Iraq weapons of mass destruction components, including nerve-agent rockets. AVARICE is said to have started in 2005 and ended in 2006. The CIA claimed the U.S. destroyed 400 Borak rockets, procured in the 1980s, that were capable of carrying chemical weapons.

Challah Queen at it again with another coup d’état

America’s “Challah Queen,” Victoria Nuland, the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, is at it again with Macedonian media reporting that she was at the center of an attempted “color revolution” coup against Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski’s government. Continue reading

Israel’s latest attempt to steal American high tech communications technology

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s controversial trip to the United States, where he will address a joint session of the Congress over the wishes of the White House and with a partial Democratic boycott of the speech, has brought up once again the age-old question that afflicts those who support Israel: Are they more loyal to the Jewish State or the United States? Continue reading

Timely book on Saudi/CIA backing of Al Qaeda

Former U.S. consular officer in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Mike Springmann could not have been more timely with his new book, “Visas for Al Qaeda: CIA Handouts that Rocked the World.” As demands grow for the Obama administration to release the 28 missing pages from the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on 9/11 intelligence failures, Springmann’s book serves as a unique preface and epilogue to the Senate report. In fact, Springmann’s description of the pipeline that provided U.S. visas to Saudi and other Wahhabist radicals provides for the reader what is, according to intelligence insiders, identified as a key finding in the “missing” 28 pages. Continue reading

National Prayer Breakfast is international CIA roundup

President Obama, once again, gave the false impression that the annual National Prayer Breakfast is a White House-sponsored event. In fact, the event was borne out of post-World War I anti-labor activism by fascist-oriented businessmen and conservative Protestant religious leaders in Seattle. Continue reading

Anglican vicar a target of ‘Anti-Gentilism’ from Zionist quarters

WMR has recently reported on the growing threat of “anti-Gentilism” in Europe most notably seen in the virulent anti-Christian and anti-Islamic cartoons published by the recent Rothschild family-acquired French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, sexually-explicit attacks on churches and mosques by George Soros-funded and -inspired feminist groups like FEMEN and Pussy Riot, and attacks by Zionist groups on mainstream Christian denominations that support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) initiative against Israel. Continue reading

Ukraine’s ‘Flying Dutchman’ weapons transport makes its rounds

In a repeat of the Central Intelligence Agency’s globe hopping weapons transport cargo planes of the Iran-Contra scandal and the more recent Libyan rebel supply caper to overthrow Muammar Qaddafi, a Ukrainian Antonov AN-124 (tail number UR-82072) heavy lifter military transport plane, denoted as an “International Cargo Transport” and belonging to the “Antonov Transport Bureau,” astonished residents around Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla International Airport in Serbia when it landed there on January 28, 2015. The Ukrainian plane, the world’s largest aircraft, was a rare sight at an airport in a country that generally supports Russia in its conflict with Kiev. Continue reading

New Saudi king was major supporter of Al Qaeda

The new king of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud, the half-brother of King Abdullah, who died in his early 90s from complications from pneumonia, is expected to rule with a more Wahhabist-oriented religious bent and concentrate on limiting cautious political reforms started by Abdullah. Salman is also expected to devote his energies to increasing Saudi national security. Continue reading

There are limits to inciteful speech

As unlikely a pair as Pope Francis and Charlie Hebdo founder have weighed in on the flagrant incitement of believers of a major religion with the intent of causing violence. On his way to the Philippines, the Pope said, “You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.” He also said that if someone insulted his mother, he “could expect a punch” in return. Continue reading

Kiev was hotbed of neo-Nazism even during Soviet times

The CIA archives contain an obscure newspaper article from the New York Herald Tribune, dated September 14, 1964, that points out that neo-Nazism and anti-Semitism ran rampant in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev even during the time of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. This fact makes the current love affair between neoconservative Zionists like Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, and incoming Central Intelligence Agency Director David Cohen and the neo-Nazi imbued government of Ukraine all the more perplexing. Continue reading

Fox News’s ‘experts’ are blatant propagandists and liars

Only the most ignorant consider Fox News to be a legitimate news network. And when it comes to issues dealing with terrorism and Islam, Fox News is not only a font of disinformation and blatant propaganda but also flat out lies. Continue reading

The CIA radicalized French Muslims

The decision of the Central Intelligence Agency to fund, train, and arm Afghan mujaheddin fundamentalists against the Soviet Union and the socialist government of Afghanistan in the 1980s led directly to the radicalization of French Muslims. It was the CIA’s support for the mujaheddin assistance network known as “Al Qaeda,” or the “database” as revealed by the late British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook, that facilitated the expansion of Saudi Wahhabist influence over Muslim communities not only in France but around the world. Continue reading

Hebdo attack rife with ‘false flag’ clues

The reliance of governments and non-state actors on carrying out “false flag” terrorist attacks, which, in the modern-era, began in Europe with the 1980 time-bombing of the Bologna train station that killed 85 and injured over 200, is beginning to yield predictable clues. This is certainly the case with the three-man professional military assault carried out in a precision manner by three alleged Islamist terrorists on the Paris editorial offices of the satirical journal Charlie Hebdo. Continue reading

The CIA’s themed revolution against Putin

The CIA is using the same coalition of Zionists, neo-Nazi street thugs, militant homosexuals, and exiled oligarchs it used in Ukraine to overthrow the democratically-elected government of President Viktor Yanukovych to carry out the overthrow of democratically-elected Russian President Vladimir Putin. Continue reading

2014’s watershed events

History will mark 2014 as the year of shifting global alliances and the beginning of the end of America’s self-styled unipolar dominance under the rubric of the “New American Century.” The corporate media is largely using the same “bucket list” of 2014’s most memorable events but the relative overall importance of these news stories are in the eyes of the beholder. Continue reading

The Senate Intelligence Committee report on torture is nothing compared to the Panetta Review

WARNING: THIS REPORT CONTAINS GRAPHIC MATERIAL

The word out of Langley, Virginia, is that although the Central Intelligence Agency fought hard against the Senate Intelligence Committee’s release of its report on the agency’s torture or “enhanced interrogation” operations against “high-value detainees,” that report is said to be mild compared to the internal review of such practices ordered by CIA Director Leon Panetta after he assumed control of the agency in 2009. Continue reading

The CIA-engineered oil glut to bring down Putin and Maduro

John Brennan’s long familiarity with Saudi Arabia, owing to the time he spent there as the CIA station chief in Riyadh in the 1990s and his knowledge of Saudi oil operations, has paid off. WMR has learned that Brennan’s agents inside Saudi Aramco convinced the firm’s management and the Saudi Oil Ministry to begin fracking operations to stimulate production in Saudi Arabia’s oldest oil fields. Continue reading

The tragic ends of the CIA’s madams

Many readers may be familiar with the late “DC Madam” Deborah Jeane Palfrey, who reportedly committed “suicide” in 2008 prior to her revealing more details about her top flight clientele, which ranged from Vice President Dick Cheney to top officials of the Central Intelligence Agency. Most have likely never heard of Heide Rikan. Continue reading

The U.S. congressional declaration of war against Russia

The sixteen-page anti-Russian House Resolution 758, which was recently passed by the U.S. House of Representatives in an overwhelming vote, is a recipe for active U.S. military and intelligence operations against Russia. Continue reading

CIA has history of blanket denials

The Central Intelligence Agency, which lives and breathes according to the mantra of “plausible deniability,” has a long history of denying wrongdoing. Continue reading

Senate Torture Report exposes bizarre sexual voyeurism of Cheney, others

The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s Study of the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program, otherwise known as the “Torture Report,” contains a number of references to male sexual abuse also seen in past reports about torture at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and Guantanamo. Continue reading

The CIA-French Gladio plot to kill Eisenhower and Khrushchev

WMR has discovered buried deep within the Central Intelligence Agency’s declassified archives a file on a proposed operation to be carried out by the CIA under Allen Dulles and right-wing members of France’s Gladio “stay behind” network. The operation was to assassinate President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev and bring about an all-out war between the two nations. Continue reading

Obama’s CT scan has Washington buzzing

(WMR)—President Obama’s two medical examinations, both on December 6, has Washington buzzing. Any time the president of the United States has so much as a cold, speculation begins flying about the state of the president’s health. Obama has been suffering from a persistent sore throat and he was examined at the White House in the morning by an ear, nose, and throat specialist from the Fort Belvoir Medical Center. The Fort Belvoir doctor used a fiber optic endoscope to examine Obama’s throat. Continue reading

Most ‘transparent’ administration in history will be more opaque for next two years

(WMR)—President Obama billed his administration as the “most transparent” in the history of the United States. After six years, the Obama White House has become a micro-managing executive and, according to Washington insiders, is about to become even more secretive. Continue reading

Qatar is the oasis where neocons and Jihadists find comfort

(WMR)—America’s Middle East version of NATO, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), which will become the GCC Plus if Jordan, Egypt, and Morocco join, is quietly celebrating the return of the Saudi, UAE, and Bahraini ambassadors to Qatar after a diplomatic row triggered by Qatar’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood. Apparently, the 34-year old Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad al Thani, who succeeded to the throne after the 2013 abdication of his father, Hamad bin Khalifa al Thani, agreed to limit the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood in Qatar. Continue reading

Wayne Madsen Report editor on the TSA’s SSSS list

The first clue that something was amiss before my early morning flight to DC National Airport from Tampa was the fact that I could not collect my boarding pass from the airport check-in kiosk. I was also curious that I didn’t receive the typical pre-boarding email from JetBlue. Continue reading

Obama: A placebo for civil liberties

Barack Obama has served as nothing more than a placebo for steadily-eroding civil liberties in the United States. Continue reading

Jeb Bush and the crimes of Brickell Avenue

(WMR)—Prospective 2016 GOP presidential contender Jeb Bush has always felt more at home in the glass towers along the shores of Biscayne Bay in downtown Miami than he has in the Governor’s Mansion in Tallahassee or the White House during his father’s and brother’s administrations. That is because Jeb, in his youthful days as a “businessman,” cut his political teeth in behind-the scenes CIA drug smuggling, savings and loan rip-offs, and covert Central American wars. Continue reading

Confusion inside Foggy Bottom and Pentagon

(WMR)—The abrupt firing of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel after he clashed with national security adviser Susan Rice over an incoherent policy on Syria has spread confusion over U.S. Middle East policy from the Pentagon into the State Department. Continue reading

The low-down on Wasserman-Schultz

(WMR)—A number of residents of Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s 23rd congressional district in Florida are surprised that she still has her job as chair of the Democratic National Committee, especially considering the drubbing the party took at the polls on Election Day. However, given her cult-like following among her fellow New York Jewish transplants who largely make up the electorate in the densely-populated strip from Miami Beach to Fort Lauderdale, her political currency, not to mention her survivability as DNC chairwoman, come as no surprise. Continue reading

Tony Abbott: America’s useful idiot Down Under

After Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s unfulfilled threat to physically “shirt front” Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G-20 conference in Brisbane, Abbott did manage to undiplomatically insult the Russian head of state by telling him not to recreate the “lost glories of tsarism and the old Soviet Union.” Continue reading
