Ex-CIA Spy Admits Tip Led to Nelson Mandela’s Long Imprisonment

Ex-CIA Spy Admits Tip Led to Nelson Mandela’s Long Imprisonment

A tip from a CIA spy to authorities in apartheid-era South Africa led to Nelson Mandela’s arrest, beginning the leader’s 27 years behind bars, a report said on Sunday.
Donald Rickard, a former US vice-consul in Durban and CIA operative, told British film director John Irvin that he had been involved in Mandela’s arrest in 1962, which was seen as necessary because the Americans believed he was “completely under the control of the Soviet Union”, according to a report in the Sunday Times newspaper. “He could have incited a war in South Africa, the United States would have to get involved, grudgingly, and things could have gone to hell,” Rickard said. “We were teetering on the brink here and it had to be stopped, which meant Mandela had to be stopped. And I put a stop to it.”

Trump Lies 76% of the Time, and No One Cares – Why?

Social scientists observed that truth matters less to people than reinforcement. We reformulate misstatements into truth so they conform to our biases. We do not change our beliefs even in the face of opposing facts (Normalcy bias).

Broken Promises: 99% of Hillary Victory Funds Never Benefited State Parties

Broken Promises: 99% of Hillary Victory Funds Never Benefited State Parties

According to Politico, of the $60 million raised by and for the Hillary Victory Fund, a PAC jointly controlled by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC, less than 1% of the money raised ended up benefiting state Democratic parties. Why does this matter? Because Clinton has been touting from day one, it seems, that she’s been raising money for the party as well as for herself, and the media, even after stories like this, by actor and activist Margot Kidder, started coming out, has been taking her at her word, allowing the assertion to go unchallenged, even when the facts were at hand. I’ve been calling the Hillary Victory fund a “kickback scheme.” Others have called it money-laundering. Full explanation of how the transfers work is here.

Media Bias: Mainstream Media Fails to Report on Muslim March Against ISIS

Media Bias: Mainstream Media Fails to Report on Muslim March Against ISIS

…Sanders himself has called out mainstream corporate media for its bias, and many award-winning journalists have done the same, illustrating how mainstream media is plagued by corporate, intelligence, political, and financial interests. Some of these interests are furthered through pushing the idea that the world faces a great threat, that we are in danger, and must accordingly give more money to the department of defence and more of our personal freedoms to the government; national security must be heightened in order to combat ‘terrorism.’ We have been seeing this with ISIS a lot lately, and with terrorism in general. Mainstream media ties terrorism to the Muslim faith when they have nothing to do with one another, and unfortunately, this propaganda campaign has been successful in its efforts, brainwashing many people, especially in the United States, into fearing Muslims.

Supreme Court Actions are Unconstitutional

Supreme Court Actions are Unconstitutional

The Supreme Court must by the Constitution hear every case presented to it. It does not. It hears only 1% of those presented annually, justifying this by the unconstitutional Judiciary Act of 1925 under President William Howard Taft. The Su[preme Court is the third branch of government along with Congress and The Executive. It guarantees citizens equality under Law. As it stands now there is NO equal protection under law.
