As U.S. troops occupied the streets of Baghdad in 2003, Iraq's then-Minister of Information Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf kept insisting that the Americans were still far away. By then, Saddam Hussein's spin doctor had already earned the name "Baghdad Bob" for his outlandish propaganda - or, in today's parlance, fake news. Fast forward 16 years, and Iraqis for weeks have been protesting against the sectarian political system set up in the wake of the U.S.-led invasion. Despite calls for change, Iraq's government has doubled down on rejecting reforms while Iraq's military has brutally cracked down on the uprising. As the death toll rises, Iraqis are having another flashback - to the far-off tales of al-Sahhaf, who's latest incarnation comes in the form of the spokesman for Iraq's armed forces, Gen. Abdul Kareem Khalaf. Khalaf is no fan of the protests - or, sometimes, of facts. He's denied cases of Iraqi security forces using live fire and tear gas against protesters, despite ample evidence … [Read more...] about Iraq’s military is spreading fake news about the protests. Iraqis are laughing back.
A member of the neo-Nazi group The Base instructed his peers to vandalize synagogues, then gave up those comrades’ names when questioned by the FBI, court documents allege. Richard Tobin, 18, was arrested last week on allegations of conspiring to vandalize synagogues across the country. Tobin was allegedly a member of The Base, a white supremacist group that encourages violence and terror tactics. Although the The Base prizes secrecy, Tobin appears to have named two other members and accused them of crimes during an interview with an FBI agent. His arrest comes amid a series of law enforcement crackdowns against far-right extremists, suggesting increased scrutiny of the movement. On consecutive days in late September, Beth Israel Sinai synagogue in Racine, Wisconsin, and Temple Jacob in Hancock, Michigan, were vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti. “Reading the affidavit, you can’t help but be disturbed by its contents,” David Holden, president of Temple … [Read more...] about Why Arrest of Richard Tobin Is Bad News for Neo-Nazi Group The Base
As Breitbart News reported back in April, the fact that Oscar-winner Clint Eastwood was circling a movie about Richard Jewell was no accident. With our fake news media currently on a rampage to overturn the 2016 presidential election with a relentless caravan of lies and fraud, Eastwood knew a timely subject matter when he saw one. During the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, 34-year-old Richard Jewell was working security when he discovered a suspicious package. Risking his own life, Jewell evacuated the area before the bomb went off.One person was killed in the blast, dozens were injured, but were it not for Jewell’s bravery and instincts, the death toll would have been unthinkable. What happened next at the hands of the FBI, the national media, and the late-night comics was one of the most disgusting episodes I can remember. Because he was white, because he lived with his mother (she was ill), because he wanted to be a cop, and because he was a southerner, the … [Read more...] about Nolte: Clint Eastwood Blasts Fake News in ‘Richard Jewell’ Trailer
