Experts: Foley Beheading Video Is Staged

I blog, you decide. -W.E.

Brandon Turbeville 
Activist Post

In my recent article “NATO Using Foley and ISIS As A Pretext For Bombing Syria – Ultimate Target Is Russia,” I wrote about three aspects of the Foley beheading video which indicated that the video is not what it is being portrayed as to the American people.

While beheadings are by no means unbelievable or foreign to the Syrian destabilization crisis, the alleged beheading of journalist James Foley is one that should be viewed with some amount of healthy skepticism. Indeed, there are a number of anomalies associated this particular video that set it apart from the scores of other beheading videos produced by the Western-backed death squads attempting to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad and establish an Islamic caliphate across the Middle East.

A number of commentators have pointed out that James Foley seems remarkably calm and collected in the video, particularly given the fact that he knows that he is not very much longer for this world. Some may argue that Foley is calm due to fact that he knows he is going to die and has made peace with this fact, a condition that overtakes many when death is imminent. Others, however, may point to this as evidence to the contrary, i.e. that Foley knows he is not going to die and thus suggests that he is, in fact, acting in a cleverly devised propaganda video.

Second, there is the fact of a distinct lack of blood in an execution that involves the slicing of a human throat. As Syrian Free Press reports, when one slows down the video, it is evident that the knife held by the death squad fighter cuts back and forth 7-10 times. Yet there is not one drop of blood to be seen. This is highly unusual to say the least.

Third, and perhaps most damning, is the fact that the process of the actual beheading is censored. In all the videotaped beheadings that have taken place in the Syrian war since 2011, there have been none (at least as far as this writer knows) that have been censored by ISIS or any other death squad organization. Indeed, if the entire purpose of the beheading video is to create fear and outrage, then censoring the actual beheading is counterproductive.

Bolstering my own analysis early on, professional analysts are now suggesting that the beheading video is, indeed, completely staged.

As Bill Gardner wrote for the Telegraph, forensic evidence from the film now indicates that the “British jihadist in the film may have been the frontman rather than the killer.”

Indeed, Gardner writes that a study of the 4:40 minute video clip suggest that “camera trickery and slick post-production techniques appear to have been used.”

Gardner writes,

A forensic analyst told The Times that no blood can be seen, even though the knife is drawn across the neck area at least six times. 
“After enhancements, the knife can be seen to be drawn across the upper neck at least six times, with no blood evidence to the point the picture fades to black,” the analysis said.
Sounds allegedly made by Foley do not appear consistent with what may be expected.
During Foley’s speech, there appears to be a blip which could indicate the journalist had to repeat a line.
One expert commissioned to examine the footage was reported as saying: “I think it has been staged. My feeling is that the execution may have happened after the camera was stopped.”
Of course, while the experts suggest that the video was faked, neither the analysts or Gardner attempt to suggest that the murder never actually occurred, suggesting instead that the murder took place after the “camera trickery” was finished.

This suggestion, however, stands against logic. If the jihadists were going to kill Foley, what could they have possibly gained by editing out the most gruesome part of the video? Even more so, why would ISIS fake the killing of Foley, then really kill him, and then only spread around the fake version of the execution? These questions are particularly pertinent since the purpose of the video would be to instill fear and terror, a task that could certainly have been accomplished easier by showing the actual beheading.

The only logical conclusion to be reached is that the video was not a product of ISIS death squads acting independently but that the video was a product of Western intelligence and clever video editing for propaganda purposes.

This video, which has been used to rattle the nerves of the American people and drum up support for yet another foreign military adventure, is set to be used to justify “targeted airstrikes” against Syria in the near future. Real or otherwise, it is hoped that the American people do not allow primitive propaganda to fool them into rushing to war yet again.

Ferguson: Proof That America is Turning Into a Militarized Police State

Equipped with fatigues, assault weapons and armored vehicles, the police response in Ferguson, Missouri was proof that America is quickly becoming a militarized police state.

Disclaimer: This is not a blog post meant to take a side in whether Michael Brown was murdered by Police or the actions of Michael Brown legitimized the shots that fatally killed him. It is rather another post about the ever increasing Police State in America and how quickly peace can turn to Martial Law. - W.E.


The shooting and killing of 18 year-old Michael Brown by a police officer sparked outrage in Ferguson, Missouri – a city that is predominantly Black but where the police force is overwhelmingly White. 
According to eye witnesses, the young man was shot about eight times, even though he was unarmed and had his hands in the air. Ferguson police officials stated that Brown was attempting to take a police officer’s weapon – a version of the story that was contradicted by various eye witness accounts.
The death of the young man at the hand of police caused protests which degenerated into looting and rioting. Far from attempting to calm the situation, local authorities turned Ferguson into an occupied war zone as police showcased its vast array of military equipment. Ferguson, an inner-suburb of the Midwest suddenly occupied by soldiers equipped with military fatigues, kevlar vests, helmets, tear gas and assault weapons, followed by armored vehicles topped by snipers. Some war veterans even noticed that “police officers” were better equipped than they were while serving in Iraq.
This kind of upsetting scene is becoming increasingly common in America as police forces across the country have been actively purchasing military equipment in the past few years.
Walter Olson from the Cato Institute stated:
Why armored vehicles in a Midwestern inner suburb? Why would cops wear camouflage gear against a terrain patterned by convenience stores and beauty parlors? Why are the authorities in Ferguson, Mo. so given to quasi-martial crowd control methods (such as bans on walking on the street) and, per the reporting of Riverfront Times, the firing of tear gas at people in their own yards? (“‘This my property!’ he shouted, prompting police to fire a tear gas canister directly at his face.”) Why would someone identifying himself as an 82nd Airborne Army veteran, observing the Ferguson police scene, comment that “We rolled lighter than that in an actual warzone”?
In 2013, Evan Bernick from the Heritage Foundation noted that
“The Department of Homeland Security has handed out anti-terrorism grants to cities and towns across the country, enabling them to buy armored vehicles, guns, armor, aircraft, and other equipment. Federal agencies of all stripes, as well as local police departments in towns with populations less than 14,000, come equipped with SWAT teams and heavy artillery.”
Ferguson police also a tactic that is seen in Gaza-like war zones when they actively targeted journalists and anyone filming policemen at work.
The arrests and tear-gassing of journalists in an American city is an outrage—in part because everyone is the media now. “Stop videotaping!” It’s about the first thing you hear in the handheld video Washington Post journalist Wesley Lowery took of his being arrested by police in Ferguson, Mo., Wednesday night, along with Ryan Reilly of the Huffington Post, for “trespassing”—in an open McDonald’s—while covering the unrest after the shooting death by police of Michael Brown. The two journalists were detained, roughed up and held in a cell before being released later the same night. (…)
Others in the streets were tear-gassed and hit by rubber bullets as police met the protesters, outfitted in SWAT gear and accompanied by snipers on armored vehicles. Nor were they they the only journalists targeted: here you can see footage of an Al Jazeera America crew fleeing their video equipment after getting hit with tear gas, after which a SWAT vehicle pulls up and police take down the camera and lights.
A SWAT team. To take out cameras. In the United States of America. Because you know how dangerous it is when people start pointing those things around.
- Time, “It’s Now Guns vs. Camera in Ferguson”

TV crew fleeing after receiving tear gas near its equipment.
TV crew fleeing after receiving tear gas near its equipment.

Events in Ferguson prove that America is turning into a militarized police state and that it doesn’t take much to point military gear on American citizens.

Understanding The Plan: Militarization of Police - WW3 - Then One World Tyranny

David Vose

Where does Ferguson and the Militarization of the Police fit into the Chronology of the PLAN for the one world government. It is very close to the End friends. Do you know their plan? You need to know, and every man woman and child in America needs to know their plan, now. We have very little time left. 

THREAT ALERT: Dr. Jim Garrow & Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney Chilling Updates on Planned Terror Attacks

"The fact is, we may even see a 9-11-14 MH370 resurface again. We should be prepared for anything. We should go to DEFCON 1, which is our highest state of readiness and be prepared as we lead up to 9-11." - Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney

Ret USAF General Warns of Possible 9/11/14 Coming


Saturday on Fox News Channel's "America's News HQ," network military analyst Ret. Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney told host Uma Pemmaraju that in oder to address the current threat ISIS posses, the Untied States should "go to DEFCON 1, our highest state of readiness and be prepared as we lead up to 9/11," because he warned "we may even see a 9/11/14."

McInerney referenced the missing Malaysia Airlines jet MH370 from earlier this year and said, "On the seventh of September, a major news network and publishing network are going to put out a book. It is going to be earth shattering of what's happening and what happened. The fact is we may even see a 9/11/14 MH-370 surface again. We should go to DEFCON 1, our highest state of readiness and be prepared as we lead up to 9/11."
Pemmaraju asked, "When you say a major news organization is coming forward with a publication, what are you referring to specifically? Can you allude to that, give us more details?
McInerney continued,"I can't give you any more than what I've just said. But it is going to be extremely important  and America should take notice. We are less safe today than we were six years ago."
The general again confirmed America should raise the terror level threat at this point ahead of the anniversary of 9/11.

Maryland College Campus Also Getting Military Surplus Gear


Three campus police departments in Maryland now own surplus military gear including "riot type" shotguns, M16 assault rifles and an armored truck under a Defense Department program that's sparked new controversy this month.
The items are part of more than $12 million in surplus military gear given to local police departments in Maryland under the Department of Defense Excess Property Program since 2006, according to Pentagon data released this month.
The surplus military gear has come under scrutiny after the fatal police shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., on Aug. 9. Police there have used military-style weapons and vehicles to respond to protests sparked by Brown's death.
Officials at the University of Maryland, College Park, Morgan State University and Coppin State University said the shotguns and rifles are or will be used for training purposes.
UM has a $65,000 armored truck, 16 "riot type" 12-gauge shotguns, 49 M16 rifles, and a handful of other items, according to Pentagon data. Coppin received five similar 12-gauge shotguns and 29 40-caliber Glock pistols. Morgan has six 12-gauge shotguns and 13 M16 or M14 rifles.
They are not the only colleges in the country to get such surplus military gear. Florida International University received 50 M16 assault rifles and a mine-resistant vehicle, according to the Miami New Times.
Coppin spokeswoman Tiffany Jones said the shotguns it received are used for training purposes by campus police.
Morgan campus police Chief Adrian J. Wiggins said the college plans to use the shotguns and other items for a training program that is being developed. The long guns are not normally carried by campus police but could be used if an incident warranted it, he said.
Wiggins said the shotguns may be labeled "riot type" but there's nothing special about them. "They look like regular shotguns to me," he said.
UM became notorious for rioting after athletics events, particularly after a violent celebration in downtown College Park after the college's NCAA basketball championship win in 2002. Students and others broke windows of businesses, set bonfires, and threw bottles and other objects at police. Seventeen were arrested.
In 2010, a riot sparked by the UM basketball team's win over Duke University resulted in 28 arrests. Police also beat a student in an incident caught on video, and one officer was found guilty of second-degree assault. In 2011, the college started its own monitored bonfire on campus for students to celebrate around, and there have been no riots since then.
UM spokeswoman Katie Lawson said in an email that the armored truck is used as an emergency rescue vehicle and was on display on Maryland Day in the spring. The college also got two transport vehicles.
"Our Emergency Rescue Vehicle is used in the event of an active shooter or any emergency situation that our officers would operate to rescue students, faculty, staff, visitors, and public safety personnel out of harm's way," she wrote. "Our two transport vehicles are used by our officers in inclement weather situations to where a patrol vehicle would not be ideal."

The real war is the war on American's by Progressives who hate America.  They hate our heritage, our constitution and what was once a robust and vibrant economy. They hate what was once our place in the modern world, the moral high ground and the moral authority that others around the world once recognized as just.
They will use whatever means to justify their ungodly ends that they see fit.  It seems they are fulfilling their agenda with great skill and cataclysmic results.

ISIS is everywhere and America should be paralyzed with fear. 
ISIS is in Ferguson, they are on Twitter, they are in Iraq and Syria, they are crossing our undefended southern border. They could be carrying Ebola into the country. Stop, stop, stop! Here is a phrase that I would like all Americans to memorize and recite often:
“ISIS is everywhere, because the CIA is everywhere”.

ISIS Is a Classic PSYOPS

America is both shocked and horrified at the video posted  on August 19th, on YouTube, showing American Journalist, James Foley kneeling next to a man dressed in black. Foley reads a message, presumably written by his captors, that his “real killer” is America.
isis behaeading
“I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope for freedom to see my family once again.”
Foley can be heard saying in the video.  He is then shown being beheaded. ISIS controls vast territory of both Syria and Iraq, and they just posted a video on the Internet of the beheading of an American journalist. America can expect to see much more of the same in order to maximize the PSYOPS that is being directed at American public opinion as we rapidly move towards our date with World War III.

ISIS has released a number of tweets which proclaims they are going to bring to America extreme harm.
We are in your state
We are in your cities
We are in your streets
You are our goals anywhere
isis is here
ISIS had a sign in Ferguson proclaiming that they were present. It looks like America has a lot to be worried about. ISIS is beheading journalists, threatening America on Twitter and displaying signs on the streets of Ferguson, MO.  We should be frightened and now when the next 9/11 false flag attack occurs we know who to blame, don’t we?   And on and on the drum beats on. ISIS is everywhere! Why? Because the CIA is everywhere!

Child-Like Innocence

As some prominent people in American circles would say, “The dumbing down of America is nearly complete”. Most Americans look at current events with the mindset and reasoning ability of a child.
Sorry, but the mental midgets which comprise the majority of the sheep in the country, badly need to Google the word “PSYOP(S)”, but alas, most of our fellow countrymen could not be pulled from the couch, and the upcoming NFL season, long enough to be bothered with the looking up of even this one term. For those who are too busy to familiarize yourself with the term and possess a decided lack of common sense needed to understand when you and your country are the victim of the process, please allow me to save you the time and trouble.
PSYOPS or Psychological Operations: “Planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to foreign audiences to influence their emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of foreign governments, organizations, groups, and individuals. The purpose of psychological operations is to induce or reinforce foreign attitudes and behavior favorable to the originator’s objectives. Also called PSYOP. See also consolidation psychological operations; overt peacetime psychological operations programs; perception management.
 (Source: U.S. Department of Defense).

We might be well-advised to replace our current national mindset, which is being conditioned by the present CIA sponsored PSYOPS which is inundating us with the belief that “We (ISIS) are everywhere”, and replace this child-like thinking with some fact-based information.

ISIS Is Not Three Years Old: The MSM’s Phony Timeline Related to Terrorism In Iraq and Syria

Syria has seen terrorist groups operating in their country for over three years.  These terrorist groups are operating with the approval of the war mongers in Washington DC and their allies in London and Paris. These terrorist groups are operating with the full knowledge and backing of NATO and their allies in the Gulf, namely Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Saudi Intelligence and a host of CIA backed terror groups such as Jabhat al-Nusra,  Abdullah Azzam Brigades and Al Baraa ibn Malik Martyrdom Brigade, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, the ultra-extreme  jihadist group Ahrar al-Sham, the PK and Kata’ib Mohadzherin have been wreaking havoc in Syria for much longer that ISIS has been in existence. And where did all these (ISIS) terrorist groups get their vast weaponry? As reported in the MSM, they got their weapons from leftover weapons supplies in Iraq which was left by our troops when we pulled out of the country.  Shouldn’t the U.S. have destroyed their weapons stockpiles? That would have been standard operating procedure, unless someone in our government was interested in arming terrorists with American military grade weaponry and subsequently pointed them in the direction of Syria,knowing full well that his would become the gateway for military intervention into Syria.

The Present Plot Was Previously Exposed by Doug Hagmann

As Doug Hagmann and his source predicted this past Spring, ISIS would roll across Iraq and into Syria, thus forcing an American response as ISIS would be poised to pose a series of horrific events (i.e.  false flag events in Syria). The execution of Foley is just an example of what is to come. As predicted, this would be the impetus of World War III. The Obama administration will also use a series of domestic based false flag events to justify inserting the American military into Syria in order to exact vengeance against this CIA front operation. However, let’s not forget that BOTH China and Russia have  publicly threatened to “Nuke” the United States if it dared to invade Syria. There is a predictable train wreck coming and it is coming in the very near future.
An American invasion of Syria would accomplish a number of things. First, the American military would be able to deploy its medium range missile batteries and neutralize any Russian advance into the region. Second, Syria is an ideal jumping off point from which to invade Iran which has galvanized the BRICS as they purchase oil with Gold rather than the Petrodollar. This is destroying the precious Federal Reserve’s most precious asset, the dollar. Third, when the Russians respond to a Syrian invasion as they have promised, the Obama administration will be free to initiate World War III against the Russians which is their prime objective.

What Lies Ahead?

Recently, I interviewed former CIA operative, Dr. Jim Garrow, on The Common Sense Show, and he stated that he had intelligence information that several malls were going to be attacked at the same time. Garrow’s warning predated the inundation of the fact that ISIS “is everywhere”.  ISIS, a CIA creation, is being championed as both the planner and executioner of a series of false flag operations designed to enflame the American public to accept going into Syria. Doesn’t this just smell like post 9/11 America when we used the emotion of the event to sell the American people on the need to invade Iraq who had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks? But the upcoming football season is looking mighty good and the average American can’t be bothered with events so far away. It won’t be until the country has their football game pre-empted by news that 1,000 malls have been attacked as per Jim Garrow.
I have no doubt this is how WW III will commence. For 18 months, I have discussed all the ancillary variables which will comprise the coming war. In my next article, I will lay out the unfolding chronology of events in both the path to WW III and the course of the war itself. I would caution America to be mindful of the fact that ISIS is indeed everywhere, just like al-Qaeda was once everywhere, and that is because the CIA is everywhere!

30 Stats to Show to Anyone That Does Not Believe the Middle Class is Being Destroyed


The 30 statistics that you are about to read prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the middle class in America is being systematically destroyed.  
Once upon a time, the United States had the largest and most prosperous middle class in the history of the world, but now that is changing at a staggering pace.  Yes, the stock market has soared to unprecedented heights this year and there are a few isolated areas of the country that are doing rather well for the moment.  But overall, the long-term trends that are eviscerating the middle class just continue to accelerate.  
Over the past decade or so, the percentage of Americans that are working has gone way down, the quality of our jobs has plummeted dramatically and the wealth of the typical American household has fallen precipitously.  
Meanwhile, we have watched median household income decline for five years in a row, we have watched the rate of homeownership in this country decline for eight years in a row and dependence on the government is at an all-time high.  
Being a part of the middle class in the United States at this point can be compared to playing a game of musical chairs.  We can all see chairs being removed from the game, and we are all desperate to continue to have a chair every time the music stops playing.  The next time the music stops, will it be your chair that gets removed?
And in this economy, you don't even have to lose your job to fall out of the middle class.  Our paychecks are remaining very stable while the cost of almost everything that we spend money on consistently (food, gas, health insurance, etc.) is going up rapidly.  Bloomberg calls this "the no-raises recovery"...
Call it the no-raises recovery: Five years of economic expansion have done almost nothing to boost paychecks for typical American workers while the rich have gotten richer.
Meager improvements since 2009 have barely kept up with a similarly tepid pace of inflation, raising the real value of compensation per hour by only 0.5 percent. That marks the weakest growth since World War II, with increases averaging 9.2 percent at a similar point in past expansions, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data compiled by Bloomberg.
There are so many families out there that are struggling right now.  So many husbands and wives find themselves constantly fighting with one another about money, and they don't even understand that what is happening to them is the result of long-term economic trends that are the result of decades of incredibly foolish decisions.  Without middle class jobs, we cannot have a middle class.  And those are precisely the jobs that have been destroyed during the Clinton, Bush and Obama years.  
Without enough good jobs to go around, we have seen the middle class steadily shrink and the ranks of the poor grow rapidly.

The following are 30 stats to show to anyone that does not believe the middle class is being destroyed...

1. In 2007, the average household in the top 5 percent had 16.5 times as much wealth as the average household overall.  But now the average household in the top 5 percent has 24 times as much wealth as the average household overall.
2. According to a study recently discussed in the New York Times, the "typical American household" is now worth 36 percent less than it was worth a decade ago.
3. One out of every seven Americans rely on food banks at this point.
4. One out of every four military families needs help putting enough food on the table.
5. 79 percent of the people that use food banks purchase "inexpensive, unhealthy food just to have enough to feed their families".
6. One out of every three adults in the United States has an unpaid debt that is "in collections".
7. Only 48 percent of all Americans can immediately come up with $400 in emergency cash without borrowing it or selling something.
8. The price of food continues to rise much faster than the paychecks of most middle class families.  For example, the average price of ground beef has just hit a brand new all-time record high of $3.884 a pound.
9. According to one recent study, 40 percent of all households in the United States are experiencing financial stress right now.
10. The overall homeownership rate has fallen to the lowest level since 1995.
11. The homeownership rate for Americans under the age of 35 is at an all-time low.
12. According to one recent survey, 52 percent of all Americans cannot even afford the house that they are living in right now.
13. The average age of vehicles on America’s roads has hit an all-time high of 11.4 years.
14. Last year, one out of every four auto loans in the United States was made to someone with subprime credit.
15. Amazingly, one out of every six men in their prime working years (25 to 54) do not have a job at this point.
16. One recent study found that 47 percent of unemployed Americans have “completely given up” looking for a job.
17. 36 percent of Americans do not have a single penny saved for retirement.
18. According to one survey, 76 percent of all Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.
19. More than half of all working Americans make less than $30,000 a year in wages.
20. Only four of the twenty fastest growing occupations in America require a Bachelor’s degree or better.
21.  In America today, one out of every ten jobs is filled by a temp agency.
22. Due to a lack of decent jobs, half of all college graduates are still relying on their parents financially when they are two years out of school.
23. Median household income in the United States is about 7 percent lower than it was in the year 2000 after adjusting for inflation.
24. Approximately one out of every four part-time workers in America is living below the poverty line.
25. It is hard to believe, but more than one out of every five children in the United States is living in poverty in 2014.
26. According to one study, there are 49 million Americans that are dealing with food insecurity.
27. Ten years ago, the number of women in the U.S. that had jobs outnumbered the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps by more than a 2 to 1 margin.  But now the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps actually exceeds the number of women that have jobs.
28. If the middle class was actually thriving, we wouldn’t have more than a million public school children that are homeless.
29. If you can believe it, Americans received more than 2 trillion dollars in benefits from the federal government last year alone.
30. In terms of median wealth per adult, the United States is now in just 19th place in the world.

SHOCKING: This Major Terrorist Group Just Pledged Their Allegiance To ISIS


Al-Qaeda in Yemen (AQAP) recently announced support for the Islamic State, the Yemen Times reported. This puts the two most dangerous terrorist groups in the world in solidarity with each other.
A statement from the al-Qaeda group read: “We announce solidarity with our Muslim brothers in Iraq against the crusade. Their blood and injuries are ours and we will surely support them. We stand by the side of our Muslim brothers in Iraq against the American and Iranian conspiracy and their agents of the apostate Gulf rulers.”

The statement did not just express solidarity, though. It also offered specific techniques that the Islamic State could use to avoid airstrikes like the ones Obama ordered:
Based on our experience with drones, we advise our brothers in Iraq to be cautious about spies among them because they are a key factor in setting goals; be cautious about dealing with cellphones and internet networks; do not gather in large numbers or move in large convoys; spread in farms or hide under trees in the case of loud humming of warplanes; and dig sophisticated trenches because they reduce the impact of shelling.
This show of support is especially important considering that al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri disavowed ISIS last year. ISIS leader al-Baghdadi had previously made an attempt to unite al-Qaeda elements under his leadership in the war against the Syrian government.
Now, though, the leading al-Qaeda group has announced solidarity with the Islamic State.
What do you think? How worrisome is this new declaration of solidarity between the world’s two leading terrorist groups?
