We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Fact Checking Newsbud's "Syria Under Siege" Video

Click here if you wish to access the 1:39:22 video made by James Corbett directly from YouTube.

Corbett is obviously very upset about this vendetta against independent journalists Vanessa Beeley and Eva Bartlett by Sibel Edmonds on whose website (when she had Boiling Frogs Post) he first posted material that has led to his widespread popularity as an independent investigative researcher and critical thinker. 

He starts off with this extended exposé of the vendetta by issuing a disclaimer: "that this video will not make you a better person in any way, shape, or form. I loathe this type of video." Despite this introduction he races through a critical investigation of the vendetta against Beeley and Bartlett in Edmond's video entitled "Syria Under Siege" and thoroughly debunks it. 

Although Corbett doesn't say it, after he gets through debunking Edmond's tirade against the two independent journalists, I think one must arrive at the conclusion that her tirade is an obviously well-crafted piece of disinformation which tries to discredit Beeley and Bartlett, not unlike all the other lies and false-flags stories we've been fed by media corporations. In fact, I think that this attack on the two independent journalists was because they have been exposing so many lies disseminated by media corporations. And I will further allege that Sibel Edmonds, a former FBI employee, has been used as a fake blogger to attract and control leftists and others critical of US foreign policies. 

To launch her career as a fake dissident blogger, I think that her handlers promoted her as a whistle-blower victim of the FBI. I, myself, contributed to her website when it was "Boiling Frogs Post" after it ran a series on the Gladio operations following WWII. The series accurately revealed all the efforts by the CIA to crush unions and leftists in general and promote right-wing governments in Europe. This effort was designed to attract leftists and dissidents to the website while others, especially young people, didn't especially care much about what they considered as ancient history.  

I also think that the timing of this attack was not accidental. I think that it was in preparation for the launching of another false-flag event (and who knows what else?) that we have just witnessed and spread by the Empire's media corporations as a chemical attack on Syrians by their own President Assad. Hence, I think that Edmond's handlers ordered her to engage in this attack on the two journalists (and probably helped her produce the video) as a way to influence all her followers to go along with this theme. I have little doubt in my mind that both Boiling Frogs Post and Newsbud are fake websites that were set up by the secret services to lure in leftists and dissidents and to gradually steer them away from opposition to the Empire's policies and actions. Watch the following video and decide if you agree with me.
