The other month our proud commander in chief made a public announcement declaring all Anti-Fascists terrorist, while pleading with other world leaders to come together and help him both condemn and crack down against these ‘dangerous’ people – people like myself. At the time, the first thing I remember saying in response to that was if my Government is actually going to call me a terrorist for fighting fascism, authoritarianism and Nazi’s, then you better damn well sure believe I’d at least do something to earn that sort of title/reputation. In that spirit I release this article, perhaps the single biggest guide to Anarchy you will ever find or see in one place.

Only in a world this stupid, corrupt and ignorant can those those with knowledge fighting against fascism be considered “Terrorists.” You are the reason why we all say “fuck society.” My regards to Mr. Trump……..
Russia has accused the United States of breaking their own sanctions and smuggling oil out of Syria.
Speaking yesterday in Moscow, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova criticised the American occupation of Syrian oilfields and described the action as criminal activity. Beyond the most recent moves by Washington, Zakharova also accused the Trump regime of smuggling, stating that the activity had already been going on for months.
“It’s impossible for a modern international community [not] to raise questions when a civilised state endlessly declares its adherence to certain democratic values, international legal principles in international relations, pumps oil from oil fields in northeast Syria, I remind you: it is a sovereign state – covering up their criminal activities with some pretexts for fighting ISIS. I want to remind you also: ISIS, according to the Allies[International military intervention against ISIL], was finally destroyed in March of this year. Not really, of course, everything “grows together” in the American position, bypassing their sanctions, Americans have been smuggling oil for more than 30 million dollars a month from Syria.” – Maria Zakharova –
The accusation comes hot on the heels of the Russian Ministry of Defense releasing satellite images that show American forces extracting oil and sending it for processing outside of Syria.
The above images show the Daman oil gathering station where “90 automotive vehicles, including 23 fuel trucks” were spotted. In addition, we can see 25 vehicles in the Al-Hasakah province, including 22 fuel trucks. Furthermore, 32 more fuel trucks were seen in Deir ez-Zor on September 8 and 34 fuel trucks were recorded in the Mayadin onshore area on the same day as can ben seen in the images below.
Russia has claimed that the US-controlled company Sadcab is responsible for the operation to extract the of oil and the income of the smuggling has gone straight into the personal accounts of U.S. private military companies and special forces.
Syrian oil is currently valued at $38 and barrel, making the illegal operation worth $30m a month.
“Under the protection of American military servicemen and employees of American PMCs, fuel trucks from the oil fields of Eastern Syria are smuggling to other states. In the event of any attack on such a caravan, special operations forces and US military aircraft are immediately called in to protect it. For such a continuous financial flow, free from control and taxes of the American government, the leadership of the Pentagon and Langley will be ready to guard and defend oil fields in Syria from the mythical ‘hidden IS cells’ endlessly. Neither in international law, nor in American legislation itself – there is not and cannot be a single legal task for the American troops to protect and defend the hydrocarbon deposits of Syria from Syria itself and its own people.” – Igor Konashenkov, Russian Defense Ministry –
The Americans and Donald Trump in particular have been particularly open about occupying and stealing Syrian oil, despite the international legal consequences of such claims.
Just yesterday Donald Trump stated unequivocally that U.S. troops will be remaining in Syria “just because we’re keeping the oil,” while Defense Secretary Mark Esper put it less explicitly this past Monday when he told the press that the current U.S. objective in eastern Syria is “to secure the oil fields.”
Critics and international observers have pointed out that plundering Syrian oil would be a war crime under international law.
Just to be clear: despite Trump’s statements, oil in Syria does not belong to the United States or to Donald Trump. Plundering oil, as Trump seems to be suggesting, would be a violation of international law and could amount to a war crime.
President Trump announced he will keep troops in Syria to protect oil fields. Last I checked, Congress never authorized U.S. forces to be deployed to secure Syria’s economic resources. Putting U.S. forces in harm’s way for this purpose is illegal and unconstitutional. https://t.co/zagOw99YEd
Under The Hague Convention and international law, occupying forces are permitted to use public assets that it manages, including the yield, but only so far as to fulfill its obligations under the law of occupation. The occupying power is not allowed to destroy assets, transfer their ownership to others or deplete them. Any effort to exploit a finite resource such as the oil reserves in Syria would be in contradiction to these laws. An expression of this principle is found in Section 47 of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949.
This law against international plunder is one of the key aspects of international humanitarian law and the international community and United Nations must now be seen to act. If the United States is allowed to engage in international banditry then not only will it be a supreme double standard, it will render both international law and bodies such as the United Nations impotent.

The more things change, the more things basically stay the same. This time, Human Rights Watch has just publishing findings from an independent investigation linking CIA backed forces in Afghanistan to assassination, targeted disappearances, an increase in civilian casualties resulting from continued drone strikes and much more – some even amounting to War Crimes. Entitled “They’ve Shot Many Like This’: Abusive Night Raids by CIA-Backed Afghan Strike Forces,” the 53 page report documents the aforementioned crimes carried out by CIA backed forces inside Afghanistan across 2017 to 2019, specifically under Donald Trumps command.
In a statement published on their website this morning representatives from Human Rights Watch said “United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)-backed Afghan forces have committed summary executions and other grave abuses without accountability.” Perhaps most worrisome of the problems however is the continued use of drone strikes on or near civilian populations, a problem that Barack Obama once also encountered in the region. HRW goes on the explain how “these strike forces have unlawfully killed civilians during night raids, forcibly disappeared detainees, and attacked healthcare facilities for allegedly treating insurgent fighters. Civilian casualties from these raids and air operations have dramatically increased in the last two years.” I could write more, or you could just consume all the resources for yourself – enjoy!

Interestingly enough, the same day the report was first released, the CIA issued a response to the report, essentially accusing Human Rights Watch of over simplifying the situation as the US continues its Was against the Taliban. You can read the CIA’s full 5 page response below…
In part 1 of 2 of this particular series I am going to disclose the locations of nearly every library of declassified documents you can find online dating back to World War II, specifically implicating the United States Government. Perhaps most importantly, all of the documents contained within them were won via Freedom of Information Act requests and/or lawsuits. In part 2 of this series, I will assemble all of the online links you need to begin requesting new information from the Government for yourself, for free, with just the click of a button and the filling out of an application. But without any further adieu……
For those of you whom are not aware, over the course of the last two decades or so many legal experts, researchers and activists have been lobbying very hard to make government records more accessible to the general public. However, even in victory, rarely if ever do these successes ever get reported in the news. To this effect, below you can find various archives and repositories full of hundreds of thousands of newly declassified documents/files dating all the way back to the end of WW2 and up on through the 2000’s – all disclosed via “Freedom of Information Act” (FOIA) lawsuits. In the case of the CIA for example, these archives used to only be accessible via one computer located in Washington DC – until the entire archive was published/released online for the first time in 2017, that is.
Below is a list of open/available databases hosting countless records across different US Government agencies, almost all of them classified at one point or another throughout America’s past. I put them all together here today not only for my own resources, but also because I believe them to be invaluable resources for anyone reporting on modern US politics or US history, including educators, as a means to understand various situations or circumstances as they existed throughout the past – leading to the politics of today.
The following are a list of guides taken from declassified files from the Central Intelligence Agency and US Army. For the purposes of this article, I would like to include internal documents and subject matter discussing the use of so-called Psych-Operations “Psy-Ops” out in the field, as well as a review of the psychology of Intelligence gathering itself; how such work either effects the people and/or the workers performing their duties for the Government, or the state of mind they need to be in to do it. Needless to say, the documents are incredibly interesting, and paint an interesting portrayal of this particular field.
This is also not the first time I’ve covered this general topic for this website, as I have also previously touched on the notions of “Psychological Warfare.” So, for the purposes of this article, I will be linking to those tags and will also be including Chelsae Manning’s original leak, the US Army Field Manual of Unconventional Warfare. Credit to “Neptunex3c” for providing the manuals to Rogue Media.

This is really an article I’ve had in my mind since the last Presidential election, nothing more than an inner monologue of sorts. Granted, at 33, I’ve only really been old enough to actually care about 3 elections in my lifetime, this year I am starting to see why things happen that I’ve read about in history books in the past. More specifically, what I’m talking about is how volatile elections can be for different political parties, politicians and President – especially over the course of just a 2-4 year time period.
Of course, a lot of this is due to the advent of the “Electoral College,” whom essentially chooses Presidents completely independent of the “Popular Vote.” What I mean to say is that if it were not for the Electoral College, the last 4 Presidents of the United States would have all been Democrat – but of course they haven’t been, now have they? I mean think about it, Bill Clinton won outright, Al Gore then beat George Bush by sheer vote count, Obama won outright and Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by sheer vote count. While I do not know if it’s on purpose, the Electoral College helps to ensure a sort of political diversity of the Oval Office that we otherwise would not see.
But what I’m discovering in 2018 is that there is something much different at play here, which is ultimately sure to effect changes to political offices next year – in November 2019. I’ve sometimes always wondered, how can one President serve just 4 years? What really happened or went wrong to cause that? Then I think about how fast the country can and does theoretically change. The Democrats had the House, Senate and Presidency in 2009, then by 2016 the Republicans had the same. Then, just two years later, the Republicans lost the House and as a result, now we have political gridlock with the Senate – the same thing that happened to the Obama Administration in 2014. Why these extreme change in just 2 to 4 years has always fascinated me as a young student? But now I may be able to answer that question in live time as this is all happening this year.
Look no further than the last Democratic Presidential Debate, featuring 12 candidates all on stage with one another fighting for air time. It infuriated me to a degree to watch what was going down there, just different Democrats talking about shared Democrat talking points. No rebuttal or challenge was given to a single statement or allegedly “fact” that night, just more and more liberals talking about liberalist philosophy. Meanwhile, are/were the Republicans holding any public debates? Are they really doing anything, at all?
I mean just think about, all the media coverage that debate generated, all the follow interviews, all the follow up television squabble/coverage was all 100% in response to the words of the Democrats – giving them even more publicity. Even the Republicans are doing nothing more than talking about what the Democrats are talking about everyday – giving the Dems even more publicity/airtime. But it’s not just the debates, it’s all the political advertisements, full of Democrats seeking office. I honestly haven’t seen a single Republican ad over the same time, only angry Democrats. I mean some US Republican led states are even cancelling primary debates, not just because they are all in on Donald Trump supporters/candiates, but also to “save money.” This means that people in these states or in the national media are never going to here important Republicans responses/headline, nor the views of the part right now or what they plan for future – after the election. Meanwhile, Democrats continue to run wild in the media and with commercials.
You want to understand how political parties trade power so easily or often in elections over 2-4 years, or how some Presidents only last 4 years instead of 8? Look no further than what’s on the media/television right now. Look no further than the way the Republicans are acting right now. Quite frankly, the Republicans aren’t trying an ounce as hard as the Democrats right now and it shows, not just today in the here and now but I also suspect next years election. But who am I to predict the future? Just saying…..
My mind has been wandering throughout the course the day today, so I figure why not write an article having a frank discussion about the Geneva Convention and the US’s current immigration ‘crisis’? What I think is most important to understand is that the US media’s coverage of this situation takes everything so far out of context and honestly, is completely immoral and completely immoral.
The reason I say this is because I have personally attempted to seek asylum abroad, much like those currently being held in US border camps for example, but was not treated anywhere near as nice as the US treats our immigrants. What you must understand is that in accordance with international law regarding asylum seekers – id est the Geneva Convention – it is quite literally the law to detain asylum seekers and hold them for a period of up to three months before giving them the right to trial to see if their needs/situation justify the right of asylum. Therefore, when you are seeing on CNN or reading by The New York Times about how cruel and horrible the USA is being detaining/holding all these people at border camps, just remember that the US is the one just following “the law,” doing the right thing – what they should be doing.
Following international law on this issue is also a concept lost on many countries around the world these days, and don’t forget that. For example, in the Bahamas. In April of 2018 I fled the United States to the Bahamas, where I entered the country and declared refugee status, seeking political asylum. Only I wasn’t detained or given a trial like international law and the Geneva convention mandate, of which the Bahamas is also a signatory by the way. Instead, I was literally walked right through the airport and shipped back to Miami right then in there, less than two hours after declaring asylum in the first place. So, just remember my story and how it’s supposed to go in these asylum cases cases, and then you’ll know how proper the US is actually behaving here, complying with all international standards – because CNN, The Washington Post or New York Times will never tell you that incredibly important piece on information when reporting on the US border crisis. Honestly, you tell me why you think that is?
I could go on and on here, but you do not want to read forever. Just remember that the main steam media has a deliberate bias in all the smut they put in your face. Too often the truth of the matter is buried behind political bias, which is such a damn shame. But the truth is out there, if you are educated enough to learn/find it. I guarantee anyone who just read this now has a different understanding of international law, and what/why the US Government is doing what they do at our borders. Only trust independent media.
A new string of emails won via a successful Freedom of Information Act request (FOIA) by Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) paints an interesting portrayal for the way talk or history of the Jewish people may soon be taught in US schools nation wide. Taken from an exchange involving a right-wing American group of lobbyists going by the name of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), the emails document how openly far right wing lobbyists are currently working to pass new legislation banning any negative reporting or criticisms of Israel in US schools headed into the future.
More specifically, ALEC wants US legislature to ban talk of “human rights investigations focusing specifically on Israel.” As well as ban any speech “demonizing Israel by blaming Israel for all inter-religious or political tensions” or “de-legitimizing Israel by questioning Israel’s right to exist.”
Reportedly, state representatives/lawmakers from from Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and South Carolina, all Republic powerhouses, have all met with ALEC about approving these measures in their states as of August. In addition to the 9 lawmakers (below), similar emails were also send to to state lawmakers; A.D. Motzen, national director of state Relations at Agudath Israel of America; and Joseph Sabag Israeli-American Coalition (IAC) for Action – all dated August 2019. You are invited to read those emails by browsing or downloading the documents provided below – enjoy!
An internal audit of security systems, measures and protocols of the Mississippi State Government, at the hands of the states own auditor, is said to have revealed complete “disregard for cyber security” at the hands of Government employers and public universities – leaving the state particularly vulnerable to cyber attacks as we head deeper into the 2020 US Presidential election season.
As was reported by Mississippi’s State Auditor earlier this month, “As required by state law, the Auditor’s office sent a cyber security survey to 125 state agencies, boards, commissions, and universities. Only 71 state entities responded to the survey, and several respondents did not complete it. This leaves the status of cyber security in more than 50 state entities completely unknown.
Among the government offices that replied to the survey, the report shows at least 11 do not have adequate written procedures to prevent or recover from a cyber attack. Another 22 respondents have not executed a third-party risk assessment. Having a third party test the vulnerability of an agency’s server is a requirement under state law. Further, 38% of all respondents indicate sensitive information like health information, tax data, and student information is not being encrypted to protect it from hackers.
In short, the survey found over half of all respondents are less than 75% compliant with state cyber security laws.“”
Interestingly enough, Russia Today is now touting a leaked White House letter from the office of the Presidency, in which Donald Trump literally tells President Erdogan of Turkey “Dont be a fool” in regards to his current Syria invasion, with treats of “destroying Turkeys economy” if Erdogan and Trump can not reach a deal in the near future. Dated October 9th 2019, the letter is incredibly interesting for many reasons, first off is the fact it is completely immature and almost childish language coming the from nations highest office. Second, Trump is outright threatening a NATO ally with economic sanctions and economic Warfare – much like we have done to Russia, Venezuela, Iran and many others over recent years. This is also incredibly dangerous for not just the future of international relations between the US and Turkey, but all NATO countries for that matter.
Honestly, I am not going to hype up the letter any more or any less for you, instead you can read it for yourself below…..
I’m not sure why it has me so fired up the last couple of days, but when I saw Joe Biden’s face on the television tonight being asked a question about President Erdogan’s new initiative in Syria and Donald Trumps decision to withdraw troops from the country I flicked off the TV and said “Fuck You. Fuck You. You know how many people died because of you?” Then I just kind of walked away for a second to calm down. When I walked back I proceeded to watch the rest of the debate surrounding Syria and I just shook my head the whole time.
I just couldn’t believe how perverted the Democrats logic was on this issue, which was easy to press forward given that there was no opposition to any of their points of view – so they all just piled on. So, for the purposes of this “article” I just want to fact check some of the so called information the international public was subjected to tonight.
What I think angered me most was the fact the nearly all the Democrats, with the exception of Tulsi Gabbard, essentially vowed to create a new permanent and more official War in Syria if they ever became President in 2020. But it’s almost as if they have no understanding why the USA “lost” the War in Syria in the first place? It was because Russia literally went all in to back/save Bashir al-Assad, for a number of reasons I am not going to talk about today. Meanwhile, the USA merely has 1,000 troops forced to operate under the rules of engagement, which esentially doesn’t allow them to fire a shot without permission. Russia on the other hand will blow anything and anyone up anytime, and they don’t give a f*ck about it either. Point being, for the USA to ever logistically “win” in Syria it would have had to dramatically stepped up military presence and directly taken on Russian forces already stationed on the ground there – id est the USA would literally have to go to War with Russia to win in Syria. Is that what the Democrats want? All out War with Russia? To bad there wasn’t anyone around to challenge their strong positions on this subject.
But that brings me to my second point. Why did Russia beat us to the punch in Syria? This was because of Joe Biden and Barack Obama’s decision to not invest more heavily in the country than we did, instead choosing to ship weapons and munitions to forces already on the ground in Syria, rather than have US forces do it directly for themselves. Such as was the case with arming the Kurds, whom were gifted more arms and munitions than you can shake a big stick at, which is now why Turkey has to target them militarily today, because the US armed them so heavily they became their own rogue militant threat in the region – which happens to border Turkey. Keeping up yet?
Point being, the decision to not invest in Syria more heavily, sooner, was Obama/Biden’s decision or indecision. Moreover, the decision to overthrow the the Assad regime in the first place was also made by Obama/Biden, and the decision to arm the Kurds so heavily was also made by Obama/Biden’s – leading to the crisis everyone is debating today. The Dems all said that Donals Trump has all the blood on his hands for what he did, but they need not look any further than the man man on stage with them, Joe Biden, whom has more blood on his hands than Doanld Trump could ever soak in – specifically in regards to talk to Syria. I guess if Biden is looking for the guilty, he need not look any further than a mirror.
Also, lets be real. There is a reason why Turkey “flipped” on the United States and why commentators now have to ask the question at the 2019 debate “does Turkey still belong in NATO?” The question is obviously yes, why do you think Donald Trump is doing what he is doing? To save NATO. Just think about it, if the US engages in Syria more heavily, specifically in regards to backing up the Kurds coming under assault, the US would literally be engaging with and against Turkey – a NATO member. So, it begs the question, if two NATO allies start bombing one another, what does that mean for Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty and which side would all the other NATO countries have to come in defense with? You see, stopping Erdogan in Syria now would mean two NATO countries going to War with one another, which would essentially spell the end of NATO entirely. By exiting Syria, Trump is avoiding a NATO breakup. In this sense, Trump is trying to save the NATO alliance for much bigger issues which may arise throughout the future – preserving its power structure. Does the Democrats want to break up NATO just to save the Middle Eastern Kurds? Is that really a deal they are willing to cut, also going to War with Turkey in the process? I think not, but just let them talk all loud and proud in front of a microphone for a night.
** EDITORS NOTE: Turkey flipped on the USA in 2016 to side with Russia because Russia showed Turkey some leaked cables in the weeks leading up the attempted coup of President Erdogan in July 2016, which was easily foiled by the President. As Turkey has now since also proven, not only did they see hacked materials from the US by their Russians counterparts meant to sway their opinions, but Turkey also produced evidence of their own that the CIA and Obama/Biden were behind the attempted coup – largely for many of the same fallacious notions you are hearing about the Syrian conflict in the Democrats debate today. Essentially, Obama/Biden and Israel wanted Erdogan out to get rid of Assad and create a new Kurdish state. As they say, the so called “Best laid plans of mice and men” – right? Or should it be, “how Biden/Obama f*cked up the Middle East and US relations for a decade?” There is a reason Turkey turned on the USA and Trump has nothing to do with it – it was all Obama/Biden **
I guess that’s all I really have to say here, I’m just being real about the situation. I have no ‘skin in the game,’ what do I have to gain from typing this out for you? I don’t support Trump and I am not a Democrat, but you better damn sure bet even I would give Donald Trump a high five for pulling out of Syria. Better to end it now and not to make it our next Afghanistan, or Iraq, or Vietnam, or Korea – etc.
Granted this article may come a few days too late, the main stream medias coverage of it comes a few years to late, and I say this because I once addressed this very situation, in detail, in the very first website I created in 2016. Entitled “How They United States Has Laid The Groundwork for The Middle Easts Next War” and drafted in July of 2017, the video you will find below describes everything you need to know about the current situation between the US, Turkey, Syria and NATO, as well as why Donald Trumps decision to unilaterally withdraw all troops from Syria comes as a direct response to potential NATO conflicts of interest in the near future. I could summarize it some more to get my word count up here, or you could just listen to it for yourself – enjoy!
However, it must also be noted that the withdrawal of all troops from Syria this week marks yet another “L” on the scoreboard for the US military. It’s not just our defeat in Vietnam and Korea that’s on the scoreboard, we lost the War in Iraq under Obama, leading the formation of ISIS and the presence of troops there for a second time, we are currently losing the War in Afghanistan, and while I may 100% agree with our Presidents decision to do so, the withdrawal of all troops from Syria is essentially yet another giant loss for the United States military. Even if we wage more Wars everywhere on Earth than any other country in the world, surely all of these modern day losses don’t make the US look like the military powerhouse we tend to fancy ourselves to be. You would think that might stifle any War efforts in the future, but for some reason I doubt this.
