Al Jazeera English - controlled opposition all the way
« on: May 23, 2009, 08:06:34 pm »



This is the kind of stuff I'm talking about when I say to everybody how great Al Jazeera is.

I've been following this channel since late 2007/early 2008 and, since I've learned that it's funded[1] by the Emir of Qatar - a US military ally[2] - I've tried to look for signs that may indicate it can be a controlled "alternative" news source by proxy, like the ones of the kind I talk about in a previous post[3] of mine, but have not seen any.

This really seems to be a great international TV news channel that is honestly trying to be independent!

Apart from having also very good documentaries, the news reporting is fair, air time is given to the different parts involved and the different programmes' themes are very well chosen, like a very good one that every week analysis how biased other news sources are, called the "Listening Post"[4].

Here are some great interviews and programmes I decided to share for you to see how great this channel is:


* Riz Khan interviewing John Perkins - author of the best-seller "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man":

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EK6B4Uogtso


* American Libertarians, behold, an interview with Jesse Ventura about the ongoing Revolution there in the US:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6_gTstYDws
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSsWJ3vWZOU


* And another interview with Ventura in another program, where he mentions the strange facts concerning 9/11:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqXl44Kp8vo


* A fair debate about gun laws in the US:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xH0TGaYXrq4
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=be6-qysOEqE


* And an interesting skeptical, but unbiased and honest, coverage of 9/11 Truth:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VplrNT96niY


One programme I'll never forget (but don't have the time now to search through the youtube archive) was an early edition of "Inside Iraq" where at a time a Muslim cleric, I think, mentioned he had proofs that the bomb blasts in Iraq were CIA and Mossad false flag operations, were the occupying forces would blame Sunnis for the Shiite killings and blame the Shiites for the Sunni killings, to which an US government representative only repeatedly responded "That is outrageous!" (not asking for the evidence to be shown). They even used the outrageous part for some weeks in a promo for the programme.

OK, I retract what I've said about Al Jazeera!

The incredible whitewash of the recent "Climategate" scandal and the strong adherence to the media propaganda blitz of the "man-made global warming" fraud they're making have just revealed it's true nature.

http://english.aljazeera.net/news/europe/2009/12/200912715290171994.html
http://english.aljazeera.net/news/europe/2009/12/2009128161056232579.html (this one is a "must-see"!)

I never ruled out the possibility that it could indeed be a controlled news source, mainly because of it's funding, although it hadn't seem to me to be one in the past. But it's recent behaviour has just made it very clear to me.

Yes, it's true that many of it's programming appears to be, what I would call, "progressive", and yes it has been reporting fairly on some issues. Although, some of the debates I've seen are very tendentious in the way the theme is chosen.

But, not mentioning the recent whitewash and propaganda campaign, we should always bear in mind the most effective method of information control: omission.

Which is exactly what Al Jazeera English has been doing.

(And which, I believe, is where the term "gatekeeper" comes from - as "the one who controls the gate and only lets pass whatever s/he wants".)

None of what I consider to be the most important issues that are affecting our lives, like the continuous loss of civil rights and privacy all over the Western World (derived from an already proven false flag event that this network never talks about) and others that Alex extensively covers, are even mentioned on Al Jazeera.

That 9/11 special on the "Listening Post"... I really felt like I was doing quite a bit of mental gymnastics, when describing it, to try to fit it into my view of the channel as one that was trying to be "independent", "honest" and "progressive"... Looking well at it, it has always seemed also like a light hit piece on 9/11 truthers.

OK, they have interviewed John Perkins. And also NWO shills Ralph Nader[1] and Noam Chomsky. And have given air time to other people from the (NWO-created) Institute of Policy Studies. But so has other controlled left media. That, apart from a somewhat light critic of the current system, never talk about the root causes of all this or about the core issues, that Alex and others talk about, that might shake the belief one might have in the fundamental way our society works.

I've always been aware of this. That they never touched any important issues concerning the political situation in the West. But thought it could be because of it being an international channel, that didn't have time to ever make a deep cover about any specific country's situation. But, thinking better, that's not true, because they have documentaries and debates that do just that. They just choose not to cover some issues.

How could an absolute monarch (a dictator) of a country that, not only allows the US military to station their CENTCOM headquarters in it's soil[2] and, from there, launch invasions of neighbour countries, but also actively supports them[3], and surely receives money or some sort of compensations in return, ever be some sort of "progressive" Middle Eastern "Kennedy" that, out of an altruistic will, decided to embark on the noble and philanthropic project of funding a truly "independent" news channel?

Every person, with a minimum knowledge of politics, knows that the media is considered to be a form of power. Because of the enormous capability it has to influence people. (Like a radio station around here admits: "What you think, starts with what you listen to.") That's why every political organization has its own media. To emit its propaganda. Wouldn't then that be the obvious reason why this Middle Eastern "Emir" would create is own?

It was immensely naive of me to think that a Middle Eastern dictator would not want to use such a form of power, to expand the one he already has, and that he would give away huge sums of money (a big part, surely, originating from the US military) to an institution he would have no control over and that could possibly use such a power against his own interests. How could he be so stupid? The fact that he remains as dictator of, and doesn't even allow demonstrations in, his country prove that he's not any sort of "progressive" leader. He has created a parliament and given women the right to vote, yes. But so has the Saudi royal family (that is part of the NWO conspiracy) considered creating a parliament. That, in the words of one of it's members, would serve to create the illusion of participation, and freedom of choice, therefore containing and controlling people's aversion against the government.

I could go on about this, but the main point that I want to make, and the reason why I'm writing this, is just to correct what I've said in the past about this recently created news channel.

Don't trust Al Jazeera.

They're funded by a US military ally, or puppet, who's on the payroll of the NWO.

Those deliveries of bin Laden tapes to this station's Arab channel, while it continuously showed revolting images of the Iraq invasion (possibly to "stimulate reactions", as intended in P2OG operations[4]), the attention given to it by the Western media and politicians, the bombing of it's Baghdad bureau, the imprisonment of one of it's cameraman in Guantanamo Bay, were most probably cynical media stunts to call the attention for this network and present it as a voice of the people opposing US expansionism in the Middle East.

This TV network is just another propaganda arm of the NWO.

People say that the first Iraq war was what put CNN on the map. Well, the second one was what introduced us to Al Jazeera. A disguised-as-progressive, in it's English version, "left-wing" alternative, with alternative controlled-left guests, alternative tendentious debates, and alternative omission of, distortion of, and lies about, important facts.

Those of you who have access to it, judge it for yourselves, if you want to. And if you decide on continuing watching it, I recommend that you choose very carefully what you watch, from now on. And I warn you not to expect for it to be completely reliable.



As always... when it comes to understanding how whole networks operate, and the true purpose of some entities, we just have to "follow the money":

Al Jazeera <----- Emir of Qatar <----- US Military (NWO)

Another[1] former military, aware of the power of television, that after years of certainly omitting, distorting, and lying about, several facts, to manipulate people's perception of reality, for the US Military, switched from one propaganda arm of the NWO to another.

Not only does the US Military indirectly fund Al Jazeera, it also trains for them professional gatekeepers.

Like I said in my analysis... they have whitewashed the Climategate scandal, they are outrageously lying by claiming that the debate concerning the "man-made global warming" fraud is over, they have joined up with all the other controlled media in a special propaganda campaign that says the world needs to be saved in this Copenhagen summit, and they never make any decent cover concerning the most important issues, and schemes already dismantled by many, affecting our lives in the West. You never see them focus on outrageous daily events happening through out the Western World, that are of great concern in the way they threaten, of have already taken away, our rights, like Alex does. ("Don't worry... Stay asleep... There's nothing going on...")

Russia Today is another story. It's owned by the same government who protects Daniel Estulin and that has interest in fighting the NWO from within. And in that channel yes, you'll see interviews about the type of subjects I'm saying Al Jazeera doesn't talk about.

Even if the people at Al Jazeera were not aware of what's going on in the West and had never heard of Alex Jones (and others), which I don't believe, they surely watch Russia Today and other channels similar to their own, and by now know who he is. But they don't interview him also, do they?

Please tell me who he is then. And in which programme does he appear. I haven't had the opportunity to watch the channel much in the recent past, so I don't know who are you talking about. I will have much more opportunities to watch cable in the next weeks and, from your description, I'm most curious to hear him.

That's an already known historical fact, that happened more than 50 years ago, and it's on the cia.gov own's website: https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/csi-publications/csi-studies/studies/vol48no2/article10.html

Al Jazeera is not uncovering anything new.

Let them talk about the fake reasons for invading Afghanistan and Iraq, the ongoing US intervention in Central Asian states, and other much more important events unfolding, that are having a great impact on people alive today, if they're an international TV news channel worthy to watch.

Meanwhile, I rather watch Russia Today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6OYdqFuTrs&feature=channel_page

Phasma:

I realize now that you misunderstood me. (Indeed, I was finding it very strange for you to make such a claim about an Al Jazeera guest.)

I wrote:

Even if the people at Al Jazeera were not aware of what's going on in the West and had never heard of Alex Jones (and others), which I don't believe, they surely watch Russia Today and other channels similar to their own, and by now know who he is. But they don't interview him also, do they?

I used the term "they" twice to refer to the people at Al Jazeera, not Russia Today.

Thanks for the link anyway. Seems very interesting. I'm going to watch it.

Ah, Wayne Madsen... Yes, he's a well-known investigative journalist. That denounces a lot of stuff the US government doesn't want us to know about, but that sometimes, apparently because of some of his sources, is not very accurate. For example, he claims that this new virus is "vaccine-proof". Which shows that he doesn't know yet that all viruses are such, since vaccines themselves are already known by many to be a medical fraud.

Seems like he doesn't frequent this board after all... :)

(Don't get me wrong. He's surely a great investigator. It's very easy to find mistakes in other people's works, but it's usually a lot harder to do better ones.)

Hmmm im not sure about all virus`s being vaccine proof - small pox has disappeared just about, and there are a few others (not many) of note.
In any event - i think he is good - at least we have some one on "our side " publically putting this stuff out there ! Even if it is on RT !

Dr. Leonard Horowitz said in an interview that when he went to Harvard University they still taught the truth, and that the reason why diseases started to disappear world-wide was because of improvements in hygiene and nutrition. (http://www.suesupriano.com/article.php?&id=28)

The statistical data proves that vaccines either do not decrease the incidence of the disease the person is supposedly being immunized for or even increase it, let alone cause the appearance of other diseases caused by what's inside the vaccines. (One recent example - http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/05/090519172045.htm ; Look on the web for a documentary called "Vaccination: The Hidden Truth")

Yes... it's incredible this situation of having to rely on a channel financed by the Russian state to tell us the truth about what's happening in the West. I guess it's the old saying: "The enemy of my enemy is my ally"... :)

a lot of ex BBC people go over to Al Jazeera, its very elitist.
Always assumed it was enemy broadcasting the way it just appeared suddenly, all professional and getting referenced by the establishment continuously and used to tell us what middle eastern people think.
But i am surprised they have Jesse V on. I underrated it

Even CNN and FOX News, I've just checked, have interviewed Jesse Ventura. So that alone, again, doesn't mean anything. Although this interview at Al Jazeera was most interesting... Maybe a small "slip" that went too much into the "anti-system" side... :)

Concerning BBC, they even made a documentary promoting Al Jazeera, that I was stupid enough to watch:

And just to correct something I said in my analysis: "'left-wing' alternative, with alternative controlled-left guests" is not a good way to describe Al Jazeera. "pseudo-independent alternative, with alternative controlled guests" is a better way to describe it. For the reasons I have stated above and because Al Jazeera does have guests from all across the controlled authoritarian political spectrum...

Al-Jazeera was set up from day 1 as controlled opposition. Most Arabs knew this by 9/11/2001. But after 9/11, there was so much anti-Arab outrage worldwide, that it was the only place over 1 billion arabs were allowed to get information from. Anything more "free" than Al-Jazeera was considered a terrorist mind control form of media where Arabs would instantly become suicide bombers if they saw one minute of its broadcast.

So with all of that sentiment Al-Jazeera was able to propagate Wahabbi empire messaging where the only way to deal with the infidels was for the people to give up more liberty and give it to the ruling Wahabbi class (King of Audi Arabia, etc.). Now that everyone knows that Arabs are human beings and alloted the same rights afforded by god and protected by the US constitution, the magna carta, and multiple other clear communications of what a human being is, Al-Jazeera is again exposed as just another NWO tool for a gradual enslavement of the population.

Notice how when Max Keiser is on the interviewers become CNN gatekeepers. I remember when he called the banksters infidels and they almost cut the feed. It was priceless.
