We Are Not Charlie Hebo

By Kevin J. Barrett

Only one version of the Charlie Hebdo affair made the mainstream media: "Muslim extremists kill cartoonists and Jews." An officially-orchestrated response - "je suis Charlie" - followed.
But is there another side to the story?
Disturbing facts quickly emerged. Politicians, big media, the security industry, and arms manufacturers all rushed to cash in. And freedom of speech in France – the supposed target of the terrorists – was rolled back by the French government. Even as millions marched for Charlie, millions more sensed that something was very, very wrong.
In We Are Not Charlie Hebdo, twenty leading public intellectuals refuse the invitation to identify with "Je Suis Charlie." Jews, Muslims, Christians, Protestants, Catholics, atheists, people of the left and right, progressives and traditionalists, people from many different countries and ethnicities – all have united to say "we are NOT Charlie Hebdo." Most suspect the whole affair was a false flag operation or psy-op. (Evidence for that interpretation is presented in the book.) Others merely dissent from the official, mythic false consensus. 
If you question what governments tell you…if you doubt the mainstream media version of events…if you are NOT Charlie Hebdo…then this book is for you.

The United States Empire: Murdering People of Color Domestically and Abroad

From Black Agenda Report
By Solomon Comissiong

Fork-tongued US president after fork-tongued US president, parade the globe lecturing people about human rights when it is they who abuse human rights as much as any nation. The US false propaganda machine is an evil, yet highly effective tool used by the US government and corporate media to trick its residents into believing that they are residing in a place that champions human rights. Disingenuous politicians and media talking heads repeat their lies, over and over until they become “fact” in the minds of myopic Americans. However, they are still lies, plain and simple.

Entire Western Media is a Troll Army


From Information Clearing House
By Finian Cunningham
April 20, 2015 "ICH" - "Sputnik"

Rather than investigating the real political climate under the Western-backed regime in Kiev — Neo-Nazi, anti-Russia, illegal, fascistic, war criminality, proven gangsterism — the Western media swing into denial mode, whitewash mode and disinformation mode to cast aspersions on Moscow.
Western media may pride itself with vain self-congratulating descriptions of "independent news, freedom of thought and expression, fearless defenders of truth" and so on. But the truth is that Western corporate so-called news media are simply this: one giant troll army marching in lockstep with the political agenda of Washington and its coterie of Western allies.

Ukraine: NATO and Political Assassinations

By Alexander Donetsky

From Strategic Culture Foundation  
20 April 2015

A wave of political assassinations has hit Ukraine recently. It attracted attention to activities of some scandalous political figures and media outlets. Even the Ukraine’s intelligence (called the Security Service of Ukraine) had to admit a hit list of opposition leaders does exist. Before that it used to say the mysterious murders of those who belonged to the team of former President Yanukovych were suicides. Sergey Sukhobok, a well-known Ukrainian journalist and entrepreneur, was killed on 13 April 2015 in Kiev. On April 14, Oleg Kalashnikov, another prominent member of Party of Regions, said he had received threats related to his activities in preparing celebration of the 70th anniversary of victory over Nazism (according to Ukraine’s laws public celebration of the Great Victory Day is punished more severely than a premeditated murder). The next day he was shot near his house. On April 16, Ukrainian journalist and writer Oles Buzina known for his opposition activities, was shot to death in Kiev as well.

Bought Journalism: An Inside Acount How The CIA Controls The Western Media

Dr Udo Ulfkotte German journalist and former editor of Frankfurter Allegemine Zeitung, Germany's and Europe's leading newspaper tells RT how he and other journalists in Germany and Europe are bought and paid off by the CIA to plant false stories to advance the imperial interests of NATO and US and European capitalism. Dr Ulfkotte has recently written and published a book in German Gekauftke Journalisten (Bought Journalists)
Every major newspaper, radio and television media outlets from North America to Europe do not report facts but rather outright lies and fabrications.

French Director of Military Intelligence: Russia Has Not Invaded Ukraine

On 25 March 2025 French Director of Military Intelligence General Christophe Gomart testified before the National Defense and Armed Forces Committee of the French National Assembly that Russia hasn't invaded Ukraine nor of an imminent threat of a Russian invasion. General Gomart insinuated that the NATO American command is lying and that France should not believe anything that the United States NATO representatives are saying.

This validates what Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Viktor Muzhenko told Channel Five Ukraine on January 29 2015.   There are no Russian troops in Ukraine.   

Below is a reprint of General Christophe Gomart's testimony in the National Assembly in French.

Interview and Conversations With Der Kosmonaut In Seattle

By Anthony Mitchell
Edited by Der Kosmonaut

These series of interviews were initially conducted with Der Kosmonaut by Anthony Mitchell for his new E-book Tragedy and Self-Destruction: As Humor in Microliterature.
 These interviews and conversations were held at Black Coffee Co-Op, Bauhaus Coffee and Caffee Vita in the Capitol Hill district of Seattle between September 2014 and February 2015. Excerpts of these interviews are quoted in Tragedy and Self-Destruction. Der Kosmonaut provides a panorama of his outlook covering poetry, literature, music, philosophy, politics, history and his world travels in this wide ranging series of interviews and conversations.
Quotation marks are attributed to Der Kosmonaut. The rest of the text is written by Anthony Mitchell with editing done by Der Kosmonaut for grammar, punctuation and clarity.

15 September 2014
"They call it the net because they are trying to catch us.They call it the web because they are trying to trap us." Der Kosmonaut quoting “The Baroness”. “She nailed it 18 years ago, a rich girl from the Upper East Side who was only 22 at the time.”
He said loss of privacy was acceptable to the petite bourgeois, who are a very strong block. “Everything’s oriented toward them,” he said. Then he quoted the Baroness above.

18 September 2014:
Der Kosmonaut was asked: When did irony become popular?
The importance of new wave music in popularizing irony is described below by Der Kosmonaut, a poet from New York City, interviewed for this chapter on 18 September 2014. He said the new wave bands Devo and the Talking Heads both employed irony.

On Devo: “Their entire show was about it in 1975. They started this whole thing about being self ironic. There is nothing in irony today that Devo has not already done. They were self-effacing and their costumes were really gaudy. I’ll give you a line from 1979 from their song Wiggly World,”

Let 'em wear gaudy colors
Or avoid display
Hey it don't matter
It's all the same

Source: “Wiggly World” song on Devo’s album Duty Now for the Future, released by Warner Bros Records Inc., 1979. The song was written by Bob Mothersbaugh and Gerald V. Casale.

“The Talking Heads were totally ironic with their first album in ‘77. They were making piercing social and political commentary.

“Then around 1994 and 1995, “political correctness” became entrenched in political discourse. There was a fear of being offensive.”

2,500 Ukrainians Picket US Embassy in Kiev (Video) – Story Suppressed

By  Global Research News
April 05, 2015

About two and a half thousand Ukrainians surrounded the US embassy in Kiev on the first of April. People who disagree with the appointment of foreigners to the Ukrainian government, as well as the intervention of the Americans and Europeans in the public administration of the country, holding banners saying “We are not cattle!” And they made sounds imitating animals.

They also kept two-meter carrots with the symbols of the European Union. By the end of the demonstration of dissent Kiev residents pelted the US embassy with manure.

For 2 hours, from 12 a.m. till 2 p.m. people were mooing and bleating in protest against the transformation of the Ukrainians into beasts by means of prices and rates increase, lowering salaries and standards of living, and banning freedom of speech and opinion. Mooing is the only thing people can do not to be arrested by the current government. But even despite these safety measures many people received physical threats from guarding US embassy right-wing radicals and USC officers.
