In times of universal deceit, telling
the truth is a revolutionary act.
         - George Orwell

Napoleon once observed that "history" is a set of lies agreed upon. In an era of ubiquitous fake news and information warfare, this has never been more true. The very concept of objective truth in history is fading out of our world. Pure propaganda and outright lies are passing into our history textbooks as unquestioned truth, condemning future generations to false views about historical reality. But the task of sifting through the lies and propaganda is overwhelming, limited by the ambition and time constraints of most observors. Only those who have dedicated their lives to sorting reality from falsehood are qualified to rewrite "consensus" history as a duty to humanity. The contributors to this site endeavor to do just that.

Who's The 'Conspiracy Theorist' Now?

      Wars based on 'false flag' premises are nothing new.  The Spanish-American war of 1898 was begun after the false-flag sinking of the USS Maine in Havana harbor in 1898. The US justified its entrance into the First World War, despite widespread disapproval, after the false-flag sinking of the Lusitania in 1917.  Twenty-four years later, the US sold its entrance into the Second World War based on the attack on Pearl Harbor - an attack known by US intelligence several days in advance but allowed to happen.
       On August 2, 1964, the "Gulf of Tonkin incident" was used justify the US being drawn into the Vietnam War.  In 1980, US-backed fighters in Afghanistan provoked the Soviet Union to invade that country, drawing the US into another war by proxy.  Around the same time, the US justified its proxy war in Central America by claiming the Sandanistas in Nicaragua were involved in the drug trade. Only five years later, during the Iran-Contra affair, we learned the opposite:  it was the US transporting drugs through the region, using the profits to fund illegal wars and covert operations.  George Bush Sr. was the mastermind of these operations. His ally in the drug trade, Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega, was ousted in a massive US military operation once Bush became president.

     Only one year later, Saddam Hussein, once a "useful tool" of US divide-and-conquer foreign policy in the Middle East, was framed by yet more false-flag operations and overt propaganda to justify his ouster.  President Clinton used similar demonize-the-enemy techniques in the Balkans during the 1990's, and Bush Jr., following "Poppy's" orders, carried out the ultimate false-flag just seven months into his presidency:  9-11.
     Over the succeeding 16 years, we have seen the same propaganda tools used over and over again, and Americans keep falling for them.  It is little wonder, with the handful of corporate media heads who control 'the narrative' being in bed with the military-industrial complex. The reason is simple: we all want to "root for the home team."  Who wants to lose their job and reputation for siding against the ever-victorious West in its never-ending onslaught of war against humanity?

The latest installation of war propaganda for Western imperialist goals is the "gas attack" in Syria. If you want a 5-minute deconstruction of this myth-in-the-making, watch this video:
