Truth Is What We Hide, Self-Serving Cover Stories Are What We Sell

The self-serving cover stories always tout the nobility of the elite issuing the PR: we in the Federal Reserve saved civilization by saving the Too Big To Fail Banks (barf); we in the corporate media do investigative reporting without bias (barf); we in central government only lie to protect you from unpleasant realities–it’s for your own good (barf); we in the NSA, CIA and FBI only lie because it’s our job to lie, and so on.
Three recent essays speak to the degradation of data and factual records in favor of self-serving cover stories and corrosive political correctness.

Fascist App is Now Here! Government Will Decide Whether Your Belief Is Right or Wrong

A few months ago, the Tax Office implemented a system to spy on citizens through social media, now there is an an app for heresy “Smart Pakem” where others can judge and prosecute you for your belief, and then the plan to implement Shariah Law, when Indonesia is not an Islamic country, it is a secular country which legally recognises other religions than just Islam. As if things are not already bad in Indonesia.
It seems one by one, step by step, the ruling elites are changing Indonesia, the secular country into an Islamic country like Saudi Arabia, changing Indonesia into a fascist dictatorship state. Will the Indonesians educate themselves and revolt to their ruling elites’ tyranny?

Public city garden in Tehran, Iran

Hello – They Lied to You About Iran!

But unlike in Saudi Arabia or Indonesia, religion is not ‘being thrown into your face’ here; it is not waved as a flag. In Iran, religion is something internal, deep, which is expressed humbly and without noise. While the mosques of Jakarta broadcast, for hours a day and using powerful loudspeakers, entire sermons, while people are now being thrown into jail for even criticizing this brutal imposition of religion on the general public, in Tehran I could hardly even detect Adhan (call for prayer).
The West would never inflict sanctions on Indonesia or antagonize it in any other way, no matter how brutal it is to its own people: Washington, London and Canberra already ruined its socialist direction after the US-orchestrated coup of 1965.
Jakarta is now an obedient, turbo capitalist, anti-Communist, West-junk-food-and-crap-entertainment-loving society. It has nothing public left. The elites have fully robbed the country on behalf of the West. Religions in Indonesia are used to uphold the pro-Western fascist regime.

Save the Children: 85,000 Children May Have Already Died of Hunger in Yemen

A leading international aid group said Wednesday that an estimated 85,000 Yemeni children under the age of 5 may have died of hunger and disease since the outbreak of the country’s civil war in 2015.
Save the Children based its figures on mortality rates for untreated cases of severe acute malnutrition, or SAM, in young children. The United Nations says more than 1.3 million children have suffered from SAM since a Saudi-led coalition went to war with Yemen’s Houthi rebels in March 2015.

Human Microchip

One Company Wants To Implant Microchips Into The Hands Of “Hundreds Of Thousands” Of Global Workers

At one time, the idea that large numbers of people would willingly allow themselves to have microchips implanted into their hands seemed a bit crazy, but now it has become a reality. Thousands of tech enthusiasts all across Europe have already had microchips implanted, and now a Swedish company is working with very large global employers to implement this on the corporate level.
There won’t be any talk about the potential tyranny that government-issued identity microchips could unleash.  Instead, all of the talk will be about the “potential benefits” and about how this will make things so much safer.
We truly do live in apocalyptic times, and many of us can see where all of this is leading. Unfortunately, we can complain all that we want but the agenda just keeps moving forward.
You will get chipped. It’s just a matter of time. They want you to believe that it is inevitable and that everyone around  you will eventually give in and get chipped.
As for me and my house, we will never be chipped under any circumstances.  Everything will be “voluntary” in the beginning, but it doesn’t take a genius to figure out how this story will end.

Saudi Tortured Journalist to Death Turki-Bin-Abdul-Aziz-Al-Jasser

Media Silent as Another Journalist is Tortured to Death by Saudi Arabia

Where is the outrage, where is the international condemnations? Double standard always applied by the Corporate Main Stream Media and the power establishment.
The Khashoggi case got such a wide response because it happened in another country, Turkey turned it into an international scandal. If it happened within Saudi Arabia, similar to the corruption crackdown and Al-Jasser it is doubtful that it would cause such a media whirlpool.

Google’s Saudi Ties

A representative for Human Rights Watch argued that “Mr. Schmidt has a clear moral obligation to feature the plight of Raif Badawi and other Saudi bloggers and call on Saudi authorities to release him unconditionally and without delay.” However, there is no record that Schmidt addressed free speech or human rights issues during his speech, and Google did not respond to press inquiries regarding Badawi ahead of the speech.

Tuti Tursilawati, Executed in Saudi Arabia Over Self Defence

Saudi Arabia Executes Indonesian Maid Tuti Tursilawati Over Self Defence

Tuti Tursilawati was sentenced to death in 2011 for killing her Saudi employer. Her execution took place in Taif on Monday and marks the fourth time Saudi authorities had failed to inform Indonesia they had carried out the death penalty on one of its citizens. 
Tursilawati said she acted in “self-defence” and that she killed her Saudi boss after he attempted to abuse her sexually. The majority of Indonesian female migrant workers head to Saudi Arabia, with an estimated one million Indonesian women working in Saudi Arabia in 2014, the vast majority of them employed as domestic workers.

Why I Remain Hopeful When Things Look Grim

The only thing keeping people from rising up and overthrowing the dominator class is the fact that too many of us believe the stories they’ve been telling us using their ubiquitous narrative control. Our chains are made of fairy tales.
By fighting untruth both in myself and in the world, I take the fight where it needs to be. By doing my best to stay as fully present and engaged with life as it is, I remain on the alert for opportunities when gaps open up which can be seized upon to shine the light of truth through. By maintaining my faith in the existence of unknown variables, I never give up, never let the fight go out of me, no matter how dark it gets.

The Latest Bomb Scare

If the security agencies and the Democratic National Committee were willing to orchestrate a fake “Russiagate” scheme against Trump for political reasons, why not also a fake bomb attack on Democrats?
From an astute reader: “We know every detail of this guy’s life within hours and it is presented with photos and all in the NYT. And a symbol – the White Van, almost as good as a White Helmet.” Another question has come in: “Who mails bombs to people who don’t open their own mail?

Is This Why Jeff Bezos Has Kept Quiet On WaPo Employee Khashoggi’s Disappearance?

Deafeningly silent, however, is Khashoggi’s own boss – Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos, who has yet to issue any sort of statement. Perhaps Bezos has refrained from issuing a statement due to a lucrative deal to set up data centers in Saudi Arabia – a plan announced last year. 
Amazon also has an office in Riyadh for Souq.com, the Middle Eastern e-commerce company that it acquired last year for $580 million.

Henry Kissinger Heckled At NYU, Told To “Rot In Hell”

Multiple protesters heckled former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger on Tuesday while he delivered a speech at New York University’s Stern School of Business. “He was the architect of programs which were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, the destabilization of several nations, and the enabling of brutal, genocidal regimes.”
Kissinger’s Nobel prize has been widely criticized by those who say that he participated in war crimes during the Vietnam war. NYU students, as well as local groups, organized the protest “No War Criminals,” claiming that “Kissinger is regarded as criminal internationally, having formed imperialist policy that caused human rights crises in South and Southeast Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.”
