Advantage Rafsanjani and Mousavi as Opposition Seeks Checkmate

by Fintan Dunne, 29th June, 2009 Influential Iranian former-president, Ayotalloh Rafsanjani has deferred for tactical reasons an emergency meeting of the Assembly of Experts -despite having now secured a majority in favor of convening the powerful clerical body, according to the Iranian political analyst Professor Muhammad Sahimi. In a telephone interview this weekend, Prof. Sahimi said Rafsanjani and Iran's opposition leaders are biding their time to allow social pressures on Iran's government to intensify. Their aims are to split the government and to detach some commanders of the Revolutionary Guard from supporting the hardline government stance on the official election outcome. "And if that happens," said Professor Sahimi, "then stronger actions such as an emegncy meeting of the Assembly of Experts to investigate the performance of the Supreme Leader can be done." The government also now seems to be avoiding a definitive showdown. The deadline to inves

Get Ready for Financial Hurricane Katrina

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 28, 2005 By Fintan Dunne "In November, 2005, the Fed mysteriously announced with little comment and no palatable justification that they will hide the main staple of money supply measurement(M-3), effective March 2006. So what's been happening to M-3 since then? For the raw figures, fasten your seat belt. M-3 was increased $58.7 billion last week , a 30% annual rate of growth. Over the past 6 weeks it is up $192.9 billion, a 16.7 percent Banana Republic hyperinflationary pace. This is nuts, folks - unless there is an incredible risk out there we are not being told about." So writes Robert McHugh in a recent financial article (in full below). And it's an article that has been getting some traffic on the CIA Fakes . One of the key factors McHugh cites for the M-3 madness is the forthcoming Euro-denominated trading of oil on the new Iranian bourse in March, 2006. And there has been much nudge-nudge comment among the self-same CIA Fakes about the U.S.

Mini Tiananmen: Civillians Massacred in China

MONDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2005 International media are still downplaying the scale of last week's massacre of civillians in China's Guangdong province, putting the number of dead between two and twenty. But local reports set the toll far higher. On December 6, Chinese authorities in the rural village of Shanwei deployed 3,000 paramilitary police with tanks and machine guns, who have killed in all between 50 and 70 protesting villagers --the greatest anti-civillian use of used military force since the June 4, 1989 Massacre in Tiananmen Square. By the 8th of December, 33 residents had been killed and several dozen were missing say local reports. The villagers had been protesting for proper compensation after corrupt officials had expropriated farmers' land for a power plant. Protests against corruption, pollution and land seizures have become increasingly common in rural China. In a damage limitation exercise, the authorities in China have arrested a police commander who ordered o

FEMA Chief Worked for McVeigh's Lawyer

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2005 by Fintan Dunne Disgraced FEMA chief, Michael Brown once worked for Stephen Jones, the prominent Oklahoma lawyer who was the lead defense attorney in the Timothy McVeigh case. And Jones is someone with a very interesting background himself. He has represented many ex- and retired spies, and previously worked for Richard Nixon, Nelson Rockefeller and Donald Rumsfeld. Jones has acted for former employees of the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, and the National Security Council staff. But that's just the workaday rountne of a carreer mired in state security issues. He has defended cases involving allegations of terrorism, domestic subversion, espionage, electronic surveillance, wiretapping, and computer surveillance. His bio states: He was also involved in consulting work with various targets, defendants, or persons of interest to the Federal Government for alleged acts of terrorism in the Philippines, the Far East, and September 1

Why the Media Ran with Cindy Sheehan

AUGUST 25, 2005 For a while there, Cindy Sheehan was everywhere. As a mainstream media which had been silent on anti-war sentiment in the USA suddenly gave voice to one mother protesting against Bush. Why? A sudden attack of media conscience? No. For a start, the media had to eventually acknowledge the antiwar feelings, in order to buff up their "impartial" image. Best to do so in August, getting the issue out of the way before the political season resumes. So the timing suited the establishment. But there's another reason. They ran with Cindy because it let them frame the issue to their liking. They had a perfect ambush for Cindy ready and waiting all along. Here it is: War Mom vs. Peace Mom Stung by the ability of one grieving mother to inspire a growing antiwar movement, the White House has found a mom to call its own . An obviously delighted President Bush introduced her to a boisterous invitation-only audience mostly made up of military families in Idaho ye

Smell the Rat as "Saddam" Lawyers Exit

TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2005 by Fintan Dunne, 23rd August, 2005 OK. Maybe you have lingering doubts. All those websites we listed as CIA Fakes couldn't possibly be run or influenced by the agency. Could they? So, as the non-fake, actual journalist harping on and on about that not being Saddam, since 7 hours after they "caught" him, it gives me great pleasure to finally report that "Saddam" has just fired his lawyers. This is the third and largest legal sacking in the Saddam trial. Which just about shreds any remaining credibility this PsyOp impostor had left. Fool me once? Three months ago, to the day, on the record, here , we predicted a pretext would be found to pull the international legal team off the case. Now it's happened. Why? Because it's one thing pawning off photo stills and video to a compliant media (alternative included), but it's quite another to have up to 1,500 nosy volunteer lawyers and 22 lead lawyers permanently poking around in t

Is This Britain's Biggest Liar?

By Fintan Dunne, 19th August, 2005 'Eyewitness' Mark Whitby It is now over three weeks since we asked if British police concocted an elaborate tale to cover the killing of Brazillian, Jean Charles de Menezes. Official police lies were bolstered by an outrageous television performance by claimed eyewitness Mark Whitby, who has now retracted his claims. Earlier this week Britian's ITV reported that Menezes entered the Stockwell subway station at a normal walking pace --even stopping to pick up a newspaper before boarding a train and taking a seat-- and was wearing a light denim jacket when he was shot eight times in the head and once in the shoulder. ITV News reported a quote from leaked secret documents by a member of the surveillance team. He said: "I grabbed the male in the denim jacket by wrapping both my arms around his torso, pinning his arms to his side. I then pushed him back on to the seat where he had been previously sitting." Compare that account, to th

True Lies of Amanda and Atta

TUESDAY, AUGUST 16, 2005 by Fintan Dunne And so it is with great honour that we nominate Ms. Amanda Keller, reputed long-term girlfriend of 9/11 'mastermind', Mohammed Atta for the award in the category of 'Best Supporting Actress in a 9/11 Coverup.' But that's no guarantee she will win this busy category in which she faces a lot of stiff competition. Especially as her leading man, who plays a reputed terrorist, was written out of the movie very early on -leaving Amanda to carry the action forward on her own. If you've been following the story so far [Part 1 & 2 ], you know that an 'Orgy of Evidence' was deliberately built into the 9/11 operation, as a smokescreen. This meticuluously planned evidence has been a fountain of time-consuming false trails, which has also provided the CIA Internet Fakes with an array of 'talking points', to fill countless hours of internet radio, articles, blogs and books. It's been a red herring cornucopia.

Dirty Tricks to Stop the Left in Germany

MONDAY, AUGUST 15, 2005 by Fintan Dunne Ahead of the upcoming German election, suspicious foot-in-mouth statements by a conservative politician hint of an establishment trying to contain the growing leftist trend among voters opposed to the neo-liberal cast of German and EU economic policies. Edmund Stoiber, the head of Bavaria's regional government in southern Germany, earlier this month lashed out at east Germans, saying "only the stupidest cows would choose themselves as their butcher". He called them "frustrated people" who were "not as clever" as his native Bavarians. The criticism was aimed at the 33 per cent of east German voters who have thrown their support behind a new radical "Left Party". But the remarks have embarrassed Angela Merkel, leading light of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), sister party to Mr Stoiber's CSU. A recent poll saw Merkel's Christian Democrats at 42 per cent; Gerhard Schroeder's Social Democra
