Mark Howitt Presents... 
2012 Revolution: World Awakening


Documentary about the current state of events in the world, and a detailed analysis of the system of control that has us at the edge of losing many of our rights and freedoms. Where did this begin? How did we let it all happen? What is the solution? 

Features many clips from experts and celebrities who all feel that there needs to be a change on earth, a global spiritual awakening within the human soul of everyone who still has a heart on earth. The realization that change is needed in the way that those with power abuse it and wars are not needed anywhere on earth. Warning: Many of these videos contain graphic content, however this information and footage should be seen by every mature human being on this planet, because these are important issues that need to be openly discussed and not ignored.

This documentary was creating using fair rights intentions and is an attempt to spread truth to the people that need to hear the facts straight up, without any sugar coating or cherries on top. This is the raw, true version of history whether you like it or not. This is what we have become.

The Prophetic Redoubt and the Prescience of Theodore Roszak

By Christopher Diamant, opednews.com

In going through my notes as I assemble the last edit for my forthcoming book's manuscript I came across some rather remarkable observations by the writer Theodore Roszak in the 1995  revamped introduction to his warmly insightful and profoundly thoughtful book "The Making of A Counter Culture"; and as I read and reread the lines I decided to make a little article for my favorite publication to see if perhaps those who were napping might be prodded into siddenly waking up: as I mean this article to be a "call to arms"; and for writers this means their pens: and their inner voice  or  voices; for "the Time is at Hand"; as the prophets used to say. And that time is Now; have little doubt of that.

As way of introduction it is our current situation politically which seems to have emerged from nowehere; but the roots of the current war on America being waged by the Upper Class against the disadvantged lower class show thes rich and powerful men have no class whatsoever: or morals or scruples or even a heart: they are simply economic beasts of the most predatory kind; fueling their acrimony by the love of themselves over and above anyone or anything else: but I have a message for them; and this article is my "message"; and the start of a lot more to come; believe me.

 Write off My Generation at your peril, "oh ye rulers of Darkness": I intend to start a Consummation; even a consumption on the face of the earth; and here is where it starts: with the 'Prophetic Redoubt' as of the prophetic regard I have for those who knew far in advance what is to come from those whose influence in the governmental corridors of vested power and pathological desire for ever higher profits would become the greatest present day threat to our democracy it has ever faced; and the enemy here is one that has nursed itself at the breast of Washington's corporate welfare even as they decry helping those who truly need the help that only the federal government alone can give in the socially protective bulwark it functions as to defend the public from the hidden vested interests and selfserving agenda's of the powerful but unscrupulous.

Those who take a look into the future with such clear foresight are those once called "visionaries"; as those who see into the future: seers of the times-to-come and plainly thus "farsighted" beyond their peers. But here the testimony is too accurate to ignore; too timely to overlook. 

In decrying the corporate treason of the Rich and their Superclass patrons who have raised the rabble with their calculated "Tea Party" cloak for the Racist and Facist Feudalism they intend to make us the grovelling Serfs to in their "new Amerika" it is Theodore Roszak who foresaw this as seen in one of his most memorable passages in page xxx of his Introduction to his book "Making of A Counter Culture" with these startling and prophetic  words: to wit,
"It is surely the bleakest measure of political cynicism that corporate elites, many of them Ivy League alumni and cosmopolital lifestylers, have been willing to bed down with throwbacks to the Scopes Trial. They have deliberately bolstered the most benighted and fiercely intolerant forces in our society, enclaves of smoldering resentment that would be burning witches and branding adulteresses if they had free rein.

Even more effective than it's collaboration with Bible Belt reactionaries, however, has been the coporate community's systematic repeal of the affluent society. Having seen what dreadful things result from fat paychecks and cultural permissiveness, business leaders have decided to rely on a blunter,  more traditional weapon: economic insecurity. They have exported the jobs that once promised to make affluence possible for all and busted the unions that defended high wages. This is turning out to be a far more effecient form of social control than corporate largesse.  Within the new global economy, American workers are being forced to compete with peons if they want to hold any jobs at all. The homeless who have filled our streets and our television screens since the early eighties are a constant reminder of how far one can fall in America.  The deficits that were run up under the supposed fiscal conservative of the Reagan years have shredded every social program that once promised an end to economic dislocation. "

Jesus, My Favorite Conspiracy Theorist

By Ethan Indi, opednews.com

Language is like a map. And stories take people to new places.  Yet if we don't possess the language to put the story in context its value might be overlooked. Elimination of language takes away and new language expands. Conspiracy theorists often offer new language so people can follow them, while people who would like to eliminate conspiracies like to eliminate language and stories and storytellers even. 

President Eisenhower arguably knew more about the military and war than any other US president and was perhaps the greatest conspiracy theorist of the last century with his coining of the phrase "military industrial complex' and his warning concerning it. The powers that be normally discount and make disbelieve any notion of conspiracy, and any new language concerning it, but when the President defines it, it is hard to deny. The military industrial complex describes a militaristic corporate entity among entities.  

There is endless variety of conspiracy, clandestine crimes and power grabs, but they all pertain to one goal; oligarchical collectivism. George Orwell, another great conspiracy theorist right up there with Eisenhower, originally penned this phrase. He arguably authored the most profound political fiction on conspiracy theory. Oligarchical collectivism is at root of every institutional conspiracy over individuals for thousands of years. Oligarchical collectivism means the coming together of the few in control of the many, the linking of pyramid systems. The military industrial complex is just one example of oligarchical collectivism.

Oligarchical collectivism is the phrase, the unification of institutions of the few in control of the many is the story. The military industrial complex and oligarchical collectivism are keys to understanding the map, the story. Jesus Christ's story is one of an individual standing up to oligarchical collectivism. He is a peaceful warrior who sees wrongdoing interlinked over individuals and speaks up about it. Jesus reacted to the epitome of oligarchical collectivism and tossed over tables and ruffled the feathers of institutions. He stood up the interlinked institutions of the Jewish temple supported by the Roman State and the traders/bankers inside the temple. The oligarchical collectivism for Jesus was the same we have today, interlinking of institutions of religion, state and corporation. The wrongdoing set forth by linking of church, state and corporate institutions is enough to make even Jesus angry.

Popular Assemblies in Revolts and Revolutions

By Sveinung Legard, New Compass


From the main square Puerto del Sol in Madrid, to Syntagmasquare in Athens, Rossio square in Lisbon and other central squares in major cities throughout Europe, popular assemblies have been convened to discuss pressing economic and political issues, to place demands on governments, and to decide on the future actions of these movements.

Several commentators have pointed to the freshness of these assemblies; their openness and creativity, their spirit of solidarity, and respect for the diversity of opinions. And indeed, these assemblies are a refreshing and innovative alternative to the charade of conventional parliamentary politics. These assemblies derive not only from the initiative of their protagonists but also from the history of the major revolutions in Europe from the 18th to the 20th century and uprisings against dictatorships and neoliberal regimes in the 21st century, in which popular assemblies have recurrently been a vehicle for social movements to advance their goals.

What is a Popular Assembly?

Before we look at some of these examples, what is a popular assembly? A popular assembly is a space that is open to all citizens from a certain area, be it a neighborhood, city, or a broader region. This space is used by the citizens to discuss matters that are important to themselves, and to decide on how to act to solve these issues. The assembly may make its decisions through a vote, or try to come to an agreement that is acceptable to all (often calledconsensus). The most important feature of a people´s assembly is that decisions are made in a directly democratic manner, meaning that each participating citizen holds an equal amount of power in the assembly.

The Internet and the rebellion of men

By Mauro Santayana, Pravda

Imagine that in February 1848 there already was a worldwide network of computers. Suppose that instead of printing the first few copies of the Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels had used the Internet, so that all workers, Europeans and North Americans, could read the text. What would the development process have been? As we know, 1848 was the year of workers' uprisings in Europe, with all the repression and violence.

Capitalism was savage then, one of the bastard children of the French Revolution that became excited by the defeat of the workers. In France, the bourgeoisie took power and defeated the monarchy, took it without disguise and without intermediaries, in a period that historians call "The Republic of businessmen." Workers and intellectuals tried later in 1871, soon after France's defeat to the Germans, to create an autonomous and egalitarian government in Paris. With the help of the invaders, the Army of Thiers executed 20,000 Parisians on the streets.

The popular demonstrations in Arab countries, which the governments and media of the United States and Europe greeted as the end of the tyrants and the beginning of the democratization of the Islamic world, enter a new stage, reaching the rich countries. Hurried analysts are made to revise their conclusions. The ailment that took people to the streets is not limited to North Africa, it is a worldwide phenomenon.

ne of the contradictions of capitalism, especially in this new stage of rampant imperialism, in which national governments are merely servants of the owners of money, is its inability to set limits. Today, the United States - which was, at one time, a space for the realization of millions of people through work - the difference between rich and poor is greater than during its entire history, including the time of slavery.

'Information is not a spectacle and the media are not a circus'

From Real Journalism Now: the media after Spain's revolution, by Mayte Carrasco and Cecilia Ballestero

Spain is going through a critical time, and it’s from that discomfort that the Real Democracy Now movement sprang, starting in the Puerta de Sol and spreading around the world. The condition of journalism in our country, as in so many other places, is a part of this upheaval. The crisis has left thousands of journalists on the street, and the media are closing their doors while special envoys and foreign correspondents are already an endangered species. But there are many more problems than these current ones: for some years now in Spain, too many media outlets have been serving the political powers; many are listed on the Stock Exchange, and information has become a mere commodity.

Audiences and readers look to alternative media to get up to speed, because the traditional ones are starting to lose their credibility. Homogeneous currents of thought invade the flow of information, simplifying and exaggerating it and thus creating tension and sensationalism. Furthermore, techno-saturation is leading to disinformation. As journalists, we think that this situation should change for the good of both the profession and of a people that has only been living freely and democratically for a short time, and that deserves something better.

As a group of ‘concerned’ journalists taking advantage of the warmth of the ‘Spanish Spring’, we think that as well as demanding real democracy and sincere political parties we should also ask for a Real Journalism Now. We should return to the journalism our universities taught us - one that is critical of politicians, honest and true; one that takes on the public responsibility of informing and educating as well as entertaining. Why are the traditional media losing their credibility? Why do our citizens no longer trust us? In the Puerta del Sol - the seat of the Spanish Revolution - why were they shouting ‘Television: manipulation’, and applauding our initiative? Then and there, we charged ourselves with making a truthful assessment of our own trade.

The Exile Nation Project: BONUS CLIP - John Sinclair: "Friday the 13th"

Part 14 of 14:


The Land of the Free punishes or imprisons more of its citizens than any other country. This collection of testimonials from criminal offenders, family members, and experts on America's criminal justice system puts a human face on the millions of Americans subjugated by the US Government's 40 year, one trillion dollar social catastrophe: The War on Drugs; a failed policy underscored by fear, politics, racial prejudice and intolerance in a public atmosphere of "out of sight, out of mind."

The United States has only 5% of the world's population, yet a full 25% of the world's prisoners. At 2.5 million, the US has more prisoners than China. 8 million more languish under some form of state monitoring (1 in every 31 Americans). On top of that, the security and livelihood of over 13 million more has forever been altered by a felony conviction. The American use of punishment is so pervasive, and so disproportionate, that The Economist magazine declared in 2010, "never in the civilized world have so many been locked up for so little."

The project will unfold over a two year period, beginning with the release of this feature-length documentary and then continuing on with the release of short films and complete interviews from each of the 100 participants in the project, meant to represent the 1 in 100 Americans that are currently sitting behind bars.

Sibel Edmonds' BFP Select Nightly News & Editorials


Pakistan Punished in Pipelinestan, Moving Toward Guerilla War in Afghanistan, Drone Strikes as Police Work!, Israel Withheld Evidence in Killing, The Assassination of Ahmed Wali Karzai & More!

I am going to start with a piece of news you all have already seen and read. I am listing this only because I will be posting a relevant commentary tomorrow, so here we go, starting with an article by Guardian:

Ahmed Wali Karzai’s assassination leaves gaping hole in Afghan politics 

Amid the confusion of breaking news reports following Ahmed Wali Karzai’s assassination, I mentioned the name of the alleged assassin, Sardar Mohammed, to someone close to the murdered man. The reaction was a gasp of disbelief.

Mohammed, who commanded a force of men who ran checkpoints close to Ahmed Wali’s hometown of Karz, had worked for the Karzai family for years and was from the same Popolzai tribe and district. The fact that he was allowed to bring his weapon into Ahmed Wali’s presence shows just how trusted he was. It seems likely that there was a personal motivation behind the attack, despite the Taliban claim of responsibility. Kandahar is a hotbed of long-running personal vendettas.

Isaf [the International Security Assistance Force) now has a chance to push for more inclusive politics in Kandahar, if it is sufficiently deft and willing to engage directly with those Ahmed Wali had marginalised. But his death leaves a massive hole in the fabric of Kandahari power politics, and shows the dangers inherent in a strategy that relies on individual powerbrokers.

Ahmed Wali was the linchpin of the south’s pro-Karzai network, a pan-tribal alliance brought together by money and mutual security. There is now no clear successor to Ahmed Wali, and certainly no one who can combine his vast financial influence, iron-fisted methods and closeness to the president. …More 

The following article will give you a better idea on who Ahmed Wali Karzai really was:

Afghan CIA Drug Kingpin Shot Dead by Own Bodyguard

Ahmad Wali Karzai, the half brother of Afghan president Hamid Karzai, was assassinated by one of his own bodyguards Tuesday morning. Friend and trusted head of security Sardar Mohammed shot him in the head and chest. Mohammed was in turn shot and killed by fellow bodyguards. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the assassination.

In 2009 it was reported that Karzai was a major player in the Afghan opium trade. According to reports, other members of the Karzai family are involved “head-to-heels” in the drug business.

Ahmad Wali Karzai also worked for the CIA.

“The CIA has been complicit in the global drug trade for years,” a former intelligence official told Newsmax in 2002. “The CIA did almost the identical thing during the Vietnam War, which had catastrophic consequences – the increase in the heroin trade in the USA beginning in the 1970s is directly attributable to the CIA.” … More

You’ll have my comments on this tomorrow. Until then, as far as Ahmed Wali Karzai goes.

Another great article by Pepe Escobar on Pakistan:

Pakistan ‘punished’ in Pipelineistan

Before the end of 2011, Pakistan will start working on its stretch of the IP (Iran-Pakistan) gas pipeline – according to Asim Hussain, Pakistan’s federal minister for petroleum and natural resources. The 1,092 kilometers of pipeline on the Iranian side are already in place.More

IP, also known as “the peace pipeline”, was originally IPI (Iran-Pakistan-India). Although it badly needs gas for its economic expansion, faced with immense pressure by the George W Bush – and then Barack Obama – administrations, India still has not committed to the project, even after a nearly miraculous agreement for its construction was initialed in 2008...


UN torture official accuses US of rule violations

By Glenn Greenwald, Salon
In response to the growing controversy over the inhumane detention conditions of Bradley Manning, the U.N.'s top official on torture, Juan Mendez, announced last December that his office would formally investigate whether those conditions amounted to torture.  Since then, the Obama administration has steadfastly rejected Mendez's repeated requests to interview Manning in private: something even Bush officials allowed for "high-level" Guantanamo detainees accused of being top Al Qaeda operatives (see p. 3).  Now, Mendez is publicly accusing the Obama administration of violating U.N. rules by refusing him private access to Manning:

The United Nations' torture investigator on Tuesday accused the United States of violating U.N. rules by refusing him unfettered access to the Army private accused of passing classified documents to WikiLeaks.

Juan Mendez, the U.N.'s special rapporteur for torture, said he can't do his job unless he has unmonitored access to detainees. He said the U.S. military's insistence on monitoring conversations with Bradley Manning "violates long-standing rules" the U.N. follows for visits to inmates. . .

PUERTA DEL SOL - La Revolución del Amor

The CIA's Secret Sites in Somalia

Jeremy Scahill reports for The Nation:

Nestled in a back corner of Mogadishu’s Aden Adde International Airport is a sprawling walled compound run by the Central Intelligence Agency. Set on the coast of the Indian Ocean, the facility looks like a small gated community, with more than a dozen buildings behind large protective walls and secured by guard towers at each of its four corners. Adjacent to the compound are eight large metal hangars, and the CIA has its own aircraft at the airport. The site, which airport officials and Somali intelligence sources say was completed four months ago, is guarded by Somali soldiers, but the Americans control access. At the facility, the CIA runs a counterterrorism training program for Somali intelligence agents and operatives aimed at building an indigenous strike force capable of snatch operations and targeted “combat” operations against members of Al Shabab, an Islamic militant group with close ties to Al Qaeda.

As part of its expanding counterterrorism program in Somalia, the CIA also uses a secret prison buried in the basement of Somalia’s National Security Agency (NSA) headquarters, where prisoners suspected of being Shabab members or of having links to the group are held. Some of the prisoners have been snatched off the streets of Kenya and rendered by plane to Mogadishu. While the underground prison is officially run by the Somali NSA, US intelligence personnel pay the salaries of intelligence agents and also directly interrogate prisoners. The existence of both facilities and the CIA role was uncovered by The Nation during an extensive on-the-ground investigation in Mogadishu. Among the sources who provided information for this story are senior Somali intelligence officials; senior members of Somalia’s Transitional Federal Government (TFG); former prisoners held at the underground prison; and several well-connected Somali analysts and militia leaders, some of whom have worked with US agents, including those from the CIA. A US official, who confirmed the existence of both sites, told The Nation, “It makes complete sense to have a strong counterterrorism partnership” with the Somali government.

The CIA presence in Mogadishu is part of Washington’s intensifying counterterrorism focus on Somalia, which includes targeted strikes by US Special Operations forces, drone attacks and expanded surveillance operations. The US agents “are here full time,” a senior Somali intelligence official told me. At times, he said, there are as many as thirty of them in Mogadishu, but he stressed that those working with the Somali NSA do not conduct operations; rather, they advise and train Somali agents. “In this environment, it’s very tricky. They want to help us, but the situation is not allowing them to do [it] however they want. They are not in control of the politics, they are not in control of the security,” he adds. “They are not controlling the environment like Afghanistan and Iraq. In Somalia, the situation is fluid, the situation is changing, personalities changing.”

'Essentially, the CIA seems to be operating, doing the foreign policy of the United States,' said a well-connected Somali analyst.According to well-connected Somali sources, the CIA is reluctant to deal directly with Somali political leaders, who are regarded by US officials as corrupt and untrustworthy. Instead, the United States has Somali intelligence agents on its payroll. Somali sources with knowledge of the program described the agents as lining up to receive $200 monthly cash payments from Americans. “They support us in a big way financially,” says the senior Somali intelligence official. “They are the largest [funder] by far.”

According to former detainees, the underground prison, which is staffed by Somali guards, consists of a long corridor lined with filthy small cells infested with bedbugs and mosquitoes. One said that when he arrived in February, he saw two white men wearing military boots, combat trousers, gray tucked-in shirts and black sunglasses. The former prisoners described the cells as windowless and the air thick, moist and disgusting. Prisoners, they said, are not allowed outside. Many have developed rashes and scratch themselves incessantly. Some have been detained for a year or more. According to one former prisoner, inmates who had been there for long periods would pace around constantly, while others leaned against walls rocking.

A Somali who was arrested in Mogadishu and taken to the prison told The Nation that he was held in a windowless underground cell. Among the prisoners he met during his time there was a man who held a Western passport (he declined to identify the man’s nationality). Some of the prisoners told him they were picked up in Nairobi and rendered on small aircraft to Mogadishu, where they were handed over to Somali intelligence agents. Once in custody, according to the senior Somali intelligence official and former prisoners, some detainees are freely interrogated by US and French agents. “Our goal is to please our partners, so we get more [out] of them, like any relationship,” said the Somali intelligence official in describing the policy of allowing foreign agents, including from the CIA, to interrogate prisoners. The Americans, according to the Somali official, operate unilaterally in the country, while the French agents are embedded within the African Union force known as AMISOM.
