As young people ask questions about the meaning of life and seek to discover a meaning and purpose for their own lives, the place once occupied by the church is, more and more, now empty.

(WASHINGTON DC)    Terrorist  attacks in such Western European cities as Paris, Copenhagen and Brussels indicate that the threat of radical Islam is growing in the heart of Europe. About four thousand Europeans have gone to fight with ISIS in Syria since the outbreak of war in 2011. Writing in The New Yorker, in an article entitled “Journey to Jihad,” Ben Taub notes that, “The migration of youths from seemingly stable and prosperous communities to fight with radical Islamists has bewildered not only their families but governments and security forces throughout Europe.”

Egypt knew no Pharaoh nor Moses (Response)

egypt-knew-no-pharaohs-nor-israelites-new-cover-art-6The main evidence (for my theory) is the Hebrew Bible itself, or better yet the discrepancy in the translation of the Hebrew Bible to Greek in the second century BC (Known as the Septuagint Bible)

(ALEXANDRIA)  In a recent article, published on VT, Mr. Jonas E. Alexis has reviewed my kindle ebook (Egypt knew no Pharaohs nor Israelites)

Mr. Alexis has set off his (awfully long critique) by claiming (actually misleading many readers) I had no shred of evidence nor had I incorporated (in the book) any scholarly work/investigation to corroborate my thesis/claim (I’m not sure, as a physician, how bad Mr. Alexis’s myopia is, but I believe it’s seriously alarming)

Operation Jade Helm 15: Prelude to martial law and false flag attack? the unedited version

Marine veteran investigative journalist and author trashed for accurate reporting and disagreeing with the Veterans Today editorial staff on Jade Helm.

Tim King and Robert O’Dowd Global News Centre

(SALEM)  An unconventional warfare exercise in several states in the Southwest and Southeast off of military reservations with Special Operations troops this summer could be used to set up a scenario for martial law if the exercise goes live from a false flag attack like 911.

What does Veterans Today have in common with the pro-administration Washington Post?  Both publications are trying to conceal the potential ramifications of an Obama Administration move called “Operation Jade Helm 15,” which every American should be leery about – at minimum.  The job of media, alternative media in this case, is to put the information out.  Jade Helm 15 is as real as it gets and it is totally unprecedented.  Jade Helm is U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) unconventional warfare exercise to be conducted outside of military reservations in at least 11 states.

Neonconservatives—who promoted war with Iraq—are now promoting war with Iran

There has been much panic about Iran which seems in retrospect to have been mostly emotional hyperbole.

Allan Brownfeld Global News Centre

(WASHINGTON DC)   The  same neo-conservatives who successfully pushed the nation to war with Iraq, a country which never attacked us and which never possessed the “weapons of mass destruction” which the Bush administration promoted as a basis for war, are now back promoting war with Iran, a country more than three times the size of Iraq. The war in Iraq did not go well, defying the neoconservatives’ prediction that U.S. troops would be welcomed with open arms. This war had a series of unintended consequences, as wars always do.  One is the rise of ISIS.

Obama “Preacher In Chief” at prayer breakfast

wall-photo-1The president’s critics, including “Republican pundits, and GOP presidential candidates have attempted to force the President to equate the religion of Islam with atrocities perpetrated in Islam’s name”.

Dr. James Wall Global News Centre

(CHICAGO)  President Obama’s speech at the 2015 National Prayer Breakfast February 5, was not a speech. It was a sermon. “Those fortunate to see the speech witnessed President Obama as Preacher in Chief.”

This critique was rendered by Egberto Willies, a Contributing Editor for Daily KOS. In good sermonic form, Obama proclaimed:

“Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history.  And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

Anthony Lawson, one of the world’s finest narrators, RIP

lawsonLawson delivered the goods when it came to suffering people, he was a force in the world, we will miss him greatly.

(SALEM)  It is always hard to learn that a friend has passed, Anthony Lawson, who spent his life working in television and advertising in Australia and the UK, was a steadfast advocate for human rights.  His open criticism of Israeli apartheid and his illustration of the suffering of the Palestinian people, was unmatched.  He was a perfectionist, that is clear in everything he ever published.

Anthony turned over stones in his pursuit of knowledge that others passed without a thought.

With more than 25 years of experience on the west coast and worldwide as a television news producer, photojournalist, reporter and assignment editor, Tim King is GlobalNewsCentre.com’s Executive News Editor. His background includes covering the war in Afghanistan in 2006 and 2007, and reporting from the Iraq war in 2008. Tim is a former U.S. Marine who follows stories of Marines and Marine Veterans.

Tim holds awards for reporting, photography, writing and editing from traditional mainstream news agencies like The Associated Press and Electronic Media Association; he also holds awards from the National Coalition of Motorcyclists, the Oregon Confederation of Motorcycle Clubs; and was presented with a ‘Good Neighbor Award’ for his reporting, by The Red Cross.

tim-iraq-2His years as a Human Rights reporter have taken on many dimensions.  Tim has rallied for a long list of cultures and populations and continues to every day, with a strong and direct concentration on the 2009 Genocide of Tamil Hindus and Christians in Sri Lanka. As a result of his long list of reports exposing war crimes against Tamil people, Tim was invited to be the keynote speaker at the FeTNA (Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America) Conference in Baltimore, in July 2012. This is the largest annual gathering of North American Tamils; Tim addressed more than 3000 people and was presented with a traditional Sri Lanka ‘blessed garland’ and a shawl as per the tradition and custom of Tamil Nadu.

Tim specializes in writing about political and military developments worldwide; and maintains that the label ‘terrorist’ is ill placed in many cases; specifically with the LTTE Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka, where it was used as an excuse to slaughter people by the tens of thousands; and in Gaza, where a trapped population lives at the mercy of Israel’s destructive military war crime grinder. At the center of all of this, Tim pays extremely close attention to the safety and welfare of journalists worldwide.

Iraq and Afghanistan veterans poisoned by open burn pits

The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the use of open burn pits have exposed thousands of veterans to dangerous chemicals.

VA insists there are no long-term health effects of exposure to burn pits. Veterans sue defense contractors.

Robert O’Dowd Global News Centre

(SALEM)  Dioxin is one of the deadly toxins from incomplete combustion from open burn pits. This is the same carcinogen found in Agent Orange and other herbicides used in Vietnam, killing thousands of veterans.

“Combustion byproducts” is a common term for the chemical mixture that is caused by burning petroleum fuels (e.g., gasoline, heating oil, jet fuel, and diesel).

Prosecutions may indeed be a long time coming, prosecutions will however take place for such is the slow course of due justice. You can’t see it coming but be sure it is.

(LONDON)  “I thought Nick Clegg’s reaction was very disappointing. His reaction should not be of ‘openness’ to a judicial enquiry. He should be actively pushing for a judicial enquiry. The Government came to power four years ago. He’s had ample opportunity to uncover, as Deputy Prime Minister, what was going on. We’ve now pushed it off to a rather pitiful parliamentary committee with no … teeth and again it just goes into the long grass.” (Philippe Sands)

Supremacists in arms

Clive Hambidge and Soraya Boyd Global News Centre

(LONDON)  When one thinks of Israel today, one immediately thinks of a chain of inseparable  words:  impunity, immunity and deception; a bleak tableau which gives rise to an acrid blue sky laden with ideological chemtrails. No matter the attempt to quiet a synaptic leap across a neuronal cleft Israel, and the word belligerence crosses a very contused cleft, flashes the brain like a neon light infused with violence which Israel has perpetrates and continues to perpetrate. As this heavily militarised state emanates from its core hatred for all that is humane, all that is human, and all that is tender and open, it becomes the uber incineration plant of love.

Sobering truths about America’s imperialist crimes against humanity

????????????????????“We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it ‘bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East’. – Harold Pinter

Gary G. Kohls, MD for Global News Centre

(DULUTH)  British playwright Harold Pinter won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005. His powerful acceptance speech exposed the United States for its fascist, imperialist policies since World War II. His speech (delivered three years before he died in 2008) was an important glimpse into – and a reasonable summary of — the innumerable documentable US imperialistic crimes that have been secretly facilitated by our multinational corporations, our national security apparatus, our military leaders, our wealthy elites and the craven politicians who are beholden to those four realities that have shaped American foreign policy over the past 60 years.
