FBI Muslims and Militancy Considerations --- Heads up By Zahir Ebrahim (tags)
The roots of this ?Militancy Considerations? graph in the FBI training presentation for its agents are very distinguished and very deep-seated in doctrinal warfare. It is not merely some ad hoc ?overreaction? to the ?war on terror? against ?militant Islam? by an overzealous state security apparatus' training program to keep the Americans safe from terrorists.

Behavior Control: Architecture of Modern Propaganda By Zahir Ebrahim (tags)
Today, fact and fiction have been merged to such an alarming degree with adept perception control that to be able to rationally separate them, to tell what is mere imagery of the Mighty Wurlitzer vs. the actual interconnected causal reality (cause and effect) of statecraft, can be as uncongenial to the cognitive mind as depicted by Plato for the prisoners bred in the underground cave since birth. The fact that the most brilliant minds remain unable to tell that 9/11 was an 'Operation Canned Goods' even ten years into its vile enactment while America descends into a police-state in presumed reaction to it, demonstrates that it is not the brain hardware which is malfunctioning, but the brain software! http://tinyurl.com/mightywurlitzer
The Mighty Wurlitzer: Wikileaks and Imperial Mobilization By Zahir Ebrahim (tags)
This 'grand organ' is now able to even more effectively synthesize, implant, and reinforce, all the right set of beliefs (myths) among the entire world's public – by suitably combining 'events' with imaginative 'expos' writing – which appropriately primes the world populations to acquiesce to the oligarchic agendas. While playing this orchestra is now an integral part of all state-craft, its major musical themes are entirely determined by the behind the scenes owners of the system. While some might refer to the underlying techniques as propaganda and psy-ops, 'Mighty Wurlitzer' singularly captures the messaging-system controlled under a unified purpose of command which is both highly compartmentalized and cellularized. Only the Mighty Wurlitzer knows the entire tune.

Julius Fortuna, An FQS stalwart/ MDP Secretary General, Dies at 60 (tags)
The Kilusang Dekada 70 ( KD70) composed of First Quarter Storm and martial law activists based in the United States pays tribute to Julius Fortuna who passed away last Tuesday, June 23 in the Philippines. He succumbed on Tuesday morning to a massive heart attack at the Capitol Medical Center in Quezon City where he was rushed after complaining of difficulty in breathing. He would have turned 61 on July 30 this year. He was a member of the national council of the militant Kabataang Makabayan (KM) in the late ’60s and later served as secretary-general of the Movement for a Democratic Philippines, the coordinating body of radical groups that organized the massive demonstrations now collectively known as the First Quarter Storm of 1970.

And it was probably not fear of right wing El Salvador death squads that led the parents of Markos Moulitsas Zúniga to the U.S. at the time of his birth,as was the case of most poor Salvadorans fleeing for their lives from the right wing death squads of the regimes the U.S. and Ollie North and Kos' future employer the CIA were backing.They probably just wished to give him U.S. citizenship and a chance to join this right wing 'elite'.
'Old Europe' Bails Out Idiot-run Free-Market US Government - Again (tags)
Right now, the entire world's banking system is being pressed to the limit of what it can do to prevent a worldwide crash of the capitalist system due to what one European banker called "a complete evaporation of liquidity" [Source: "ECB reportedly weighs dollar swap with Fed", MarketWatch.com, 13 August, 2007]. In layman's terms, that means that the world's banking system is running out of the funds needed to keep the capitalist credit system running.

The Lone Protester (tags)
A powerful statement can be made by one lone protester. People often think they have to wait to *follow* someone else leading a protest, or for someone else to *join* them, before they can protest properly. But my street performer mentality says there is no time like now to launch a protest.
