- The Facts:
Russia has come out with detailed evidence about the next potential false flag chemical attack on Syria that not only explains the motives but also the means by which this is intended to be carried out.
- Reflect On:
If we measure the claims of Russia against the counter-claims of the West, is it so difficult to see where the truth essentially lies?
I had an interesting conversation a few weeks ago with one of my teammates after our weekly old-timer’s soccer game. In the team ‘scrum’ around a cooler of beer, I mentioned to him that I had started working for an alternative news website writing about what is happening in the world. This immediately triggered a rueful face and a shake of the head about the state of the world.
Teammate: Isn’t it terrible what’s happening in Syria, that monster, with the chemical weapons on his own people, the children, what’s his name?
Teammate: Yeah, Assad. They need to bomb him the hell out of there.
Of all things for him to bring up. I took a deep breath. For years I said nothing in these conversations, not because I was worried about being embarrassed, but because it just felt as though people were not ready or interested in having their views challenged. But these are different times.
Me: It’s not true. He has never attacked his people with chemical weapons. It’s fake.
Teammate: Fake? You mean that’s all made up? Nobody is actually dying?
Me:I don’t know if nobody is dying, but it’s either completely fake or the attacks are being done by the rebels with the support of Western forces.
This got us going on a longer conversation about our future. He was very concerned about the world that his children and grandchildren will inherit. I tried to console him with my optimism, and gave him reasons I believe we are in the worst of it right now, and as truth becomes exposed, war and suffering will significantly decrease. I don’t know if I convinced him completely about Assad, but I planted a seed, that I believe will grow as the veils of deception continue to come down.
A Question Of Motivation
When I do have conversations with people about Syria or other false flag scenarios, I don’t get much into the hard evidence that makes me believe these chemical weapons attacks are staged events. I talk more about the motivation.
I ask the question that if Bashar Al-Assad, President of Syria and commander-in-chief of the Syrian Armed Forces since 2000, seems to be winning the battle against rebels in his country who seek to remove him from power, then what could possibly be his motivation for authorizing chemical weapons attacks against his citizens, which ends up harming and killing innocent children? Surely he realizes this would not only bring the wrath of the international community but also a complete breakdown in the support of his own people?
Next, I ask the question as to whether Western powers (the Deep State) might have any motivation to contrive these chemical attacks and then blame them on Assad? And the answer is as plain as the nose on your face. When the whole and complete war in Syria is seen as an attempt for Western powers to remove Assad and replace him with a Western puppet that will do their bidding, the motivation, the means and the tactics virtually become self-explanatory.
Russia’s Pre-Emptive Intelligence
For those who would like to dig a little deeper beneath the surface, let’s take a look at recent Russian claims that Western powers are planning another false flag chemical attack in order to prevent the defeat of the rebels as well as preventing peace in Syria. Let’s begin with the August 23rd statement made by U. S. National Security Adviser John Bolton:
‘We are obviously concerned about the possibility that Assad may use chemical weapons again. Just so there’s no confusion here: if the Syrian regime uses chemical weapons, we will respond very strongly, and they really ought to think about this a long time.’
Curious isn’t it that, without reason or evidence, Bolton is warning of the possibility of another chemical attack on civilians in Syria? Even though all it has done for Syria and its president is missile attacks from the West on Syrian military installations?
Even more curious are the massive military preparations being made to be ready to launch such attacks, just in case President Assad tries to do what John Bolton is warning him not to do. As this TASS article notes,
“The US Navy’s destroyer Sullivans with 56 cruise missiles on its board arrived in the Persian Gulf several days ago while a B-1B strategic bomber of the US Air Force armed with AGM-158 JASSM air-to-surface missiles was redeployed to the Al Udeid air base in Qatar.” –Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov
Konashenkov goes on to provide information of exactly how this false flag operation looks set to play out:
“According to the information confirmed simultaneously by several independent sources, the active terrorist grouping Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly known as Jabhat al-Nusra) is plotting a new provocation with the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government forces against civilians in the Idlib province. The staging of this provocation with the active participation of the UK special services is set to serve as a new pretext for missile and bomb strikes by the United States, Great Britain and France against Syria’s government and economic facilities.
A special group of terrorists who have been trained by specialists of the UK private military company Olive to handle chemical warfare agents has also arrived in the area of Jisr ash-Shugur. For the purpose of staging an alleged chemical attack in the town of Jisr ash-Shugur in the Idlib province, terrorists of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham have delivered eight containers with chlorine.”
These militants have been tasked to simulate a rescue operation for locals allegedly hurt in the chemical attack and will be clad in the outfits of the notorious White Helmets group, the spokesman said.
Response From The West
It is only fair and balanced to look at the response from the West concerning these detailed pieces of evidentiary information before we draw our conclusions. As you can see in the RT video below, which gives additional information on this subject, this is the glib and dismissive response of the U. S. spokesperson to the Russian information:
“I think that’s more ‘false flag’-type reporting, we’ve seen that before, where they try to put the blame, they try to put the onus on other groups, and we don’t buy into that.”
Uh, ok. That’s the response? The whole response? Check it for yourselves.
Honing Our Discernment
Certainly I recognize my two sources are TASS and Russia Today, which inevitably have a pro-Russian slant. I would be happy to give more credence to Western Mainstream Outlets if I could find any intelligent discussion about motivation, and evidence to back up claims. Alas, I can find none on such subjects. If somebody can point me to an intelligent discussion in Western Media about why President Bashar al-Assad would launch chemical weapons against his people, or detailed evidence as to why they believe this attack is imminent, to justify the mobilization of military power upon Syria, I would be happy to evaluate it.
I believe that by coming out with detailed, verifiable information in advance, Russia is trying to prevent unnecessary warfare and death. But you need not simply trust what I say. I would ask you to look more deeply into the information that is available, and use your growing discernment to establish what you think is true. Whether it be through articles like this or conversations with friends over a beer after a soccer game, what is important is that seeds of greater discernment are planted. The more that people begin to truly care about and recognize the truth, the more likely that we will be participating in preventing these unwanted events from happening.
Is There Collusion Between Facebook & DC Think Tanks in Censoring Alternative Media Voices?
- The Facts:
Neocon Jamie Fly has taken partial credit for the purge of alternative media sites on Facebook and Twitter. They still claim the reason for this is their spreading of fake news from Russia and China. They allege that more deletions are coming.
- Reflect On:
Are we still believe this Russian interference narrative from the mainstream? Is this not just a modern book burning? By not questioning mainstream narratives, is our voluntary unconsciousness creating an undesirable world?
After the recent social media purge of independent media voices, Jamie Fly, an employee of a leading Washington DC think tank has allegedly taken credit for being involved in the colluded efforts by Facebook and Twitter, stating this was necessary in order to fight against ‘fake news’ from Russia and China.
To be clear, I, a Canadian operating an independent media outlet (Collective Evolution) am friends with some of the admins of these pages who were deleted this October. The people running and owning these pages are American and have absolutely no ties to Russia and China nor get their narratives from Russia or China.
Yet, this is still the narrative being put forth, and it clearly has no backing.
“Russia, China, and other foreign states take advantage of our open political system,” Jamie Fly said.
Jamie Fly is no quiet voices when it comes to non-peaceful tactics. He has advocated for military assault on Iran, a regime change war on Syria, and hiking military spending to unprecedented levels. He is the what many people would consider is a pure neoconservative.
Fly began showing up in the news as an expert on social media and ‘Russian disinformation’ speaking on the narrative that Russia had interfered in the 2016 presidential election in the US. Which there is still has no credible evidence to support.
“They can invent stories that get repeated and spread through different sites. So we are just starting to push back. Just this last week Facebook began starting to take down sites. So this is just the beginning.” Fly continued.
According to Jeb Sprague, a visiting faculty member in sociology at the University of California-Santa Barbara, recalls various claims Jamie Fly made to him with regards to Facebook and Twitter censorship. According to Sprague, Fly also stated that he was working with the Atlantic Council in the campaign to purge alternative media from social media platforms like Facebook.
If you recall, we wrote an entire piece on the Atlantic Council who has been working with Facebook to determine who to delete. The Atlantic Council has ties to many prominent deep state figures and is funded by them as well.
Having the chance to speak recently with a major neo-con official in the German Marshal Fund,I felt compelled to write here& expose the collusion taking place between Facebook & leading DC think tanks in censoring alternative media voices.See article,co-authored w/@MaxBlumenthalhttps://t.co/zIDumxs2pc
— Jeb Sprague (@JebSprague) October 23, 2018
Again here we’re seeing more pieces to the puzzle show up in this effort against independent media voices. Note, this is not about silencing hateful voices or extreme voices, it’s simply anyone who dissents from the mainstream narrative. This is The United States creating George Orwell’s 1984, and it’s those who don’t question mainstream narratives who are unknowingly supporting these actions.
What does our unconsciousness and unwillingness to ask questions about mainstream narratives truly causing?
At CE we have lost 80% of our funding since two years ago due to censorship of our voice. If you feel our work is important and want to ensure we keep independent media going, please consider joining our CETV platform.

Tulsi Gabbard Files Lawsuit Against Hillary Clinton Over Defamatory Statements
- The Facts:
Tulsi Gabbard, a United States Congresswoman, Army National Guard Major, and 2020 presidential candidate, filed a defamation lawsuit against Hillary Rodham Clinton for her defamatory remarks.
- Reflect On:
Is the political system broken? Can we keep voting and using the same system hoping for change? Does politics, and voting, take power out of our own hands and put it in the hands of a small group of people?
There are a few Great quotes that instantly come to mind everytime the thought of politics enters my head, one of them comes from Edward Bernays, “the father of public relations” from his book, Propaganda, 1928. If you’ve read some of my articles you have probably come across it before,
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.
To me, this is what modern day politics, for the most part, represents. It’s a game where, whoever is elected, or rather selected as some would argue, seems to insult and expose their competition in as many ways as possible, while simultaneously making moves and making statements that accumulate more loyal followers, and voters. It is the complete opposite of doing what our leaders should be doing, working together while at the same time being completely transparent. Furthermore, the upper echelon of the political game only seems to feature powerful people, with close ties and connections to people above them who have accumulated even more wealth and power. Many presidents over the years only seem to follow the will of their masters, who are comprised of the corporate and financial elite.
Another great quote that comes to mind I like to use often,
Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great staffs, both of the old parties have ganged aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them in martialling [sic] to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day. – Theodore Roosevelt (source)
This ‘invisible’ government has been referred to by many over the years. In the modern day, some called it “the deep state” and believe it’s made up of mainstream media, and many other corporations and institutions that greatly influence US elections, foreign policy as well as the decisions that are supposedly made by the president of the United States. This is why we see people connected to great power always take the presidency. It’s no secret that politics is full of corruption, not to mention entrapment, blackmail, pedophilia (as exposed more within the mainstream with regards to the Jeffrey Epstein case), and much more.
But every now and then, a pure soul seems to emerge garnering the attention of many. And when they do, ‘the establishment’ completely ignores them, belittles them, and falsely accuses them in an attempt to shift the perception of the character in question within the minds of the masses. It’s as if, from the very beginning, they have no chance to win because it’s so unfair, and so much is pitted against them.
This is exactly why veteran and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is experiencing this type of thing. Gabbard first caught my attention when she introduced the Stop Arming Terrorists Act (H.R.608) which would have stopped, or attempted to stop the U.S. government from using taxpayer dollars to directly or indirectly support groups who are allied with and supporting terrorist groups like ISIS and al Qaeda in their war to overthrow the Syrian government. The legislation is based on congressional action during the Iran-Contra affair to stop the CIA’s illegal arming of rebels in Nicaragua. It is endorsed by Progressive Democrats of America, the U.S. Peace Council, and Veterans For Peace.
She has long been creating awareness on issues of how this ‘establishment works.’ Here’s one of her latest re-tweets.
She spoke and speaks a lot of truth, she is a supporter of people like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, and an advocate for peace and has the desire to end corrupt wars, and much more. Clearly, she’s a big threat to the establishment that seems to control and has controlled the presidency for a long time.

This is why her persona has been ‘bashed’ by establishment owned mainstream media, and the powerful Hillary Clinton, who has labelled Gabbard as a Russian asset, among many other things, which in Turn is why Gabbard has filed a lawsuit against Clinton for defamation of character.
They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. And that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she’s also a Russian asset. Yeah, she’s a Russian asset (Tulsi), I mean, totally. – Clinton (source)
According to he NY Post:
She filed her $50 million defamation lawsuit against Hillary Clinton to hold the former secretary of state “accountable” for her alleged smears.
Washington, DC – Tulsi Gabbard, a United States Congresswoman, Army National Guard Major, and 2020 presidential candidate, today filed a defamation lawsuit against Hillary Rodham Clinton. Gabbard, a U.S. Representative for Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district, asserts in her complaint that Clinton deliberately and maliciously made false statements in an attempt to derail Rep. Gabbard’s campaign, by alleging that Gabbard is a “Russian asset.” The complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York by Brian Dunne and Dan Terzian, Rep. Gabbard’s legal counsel and partners at Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht LLP.
Clinton was the 2016 Democratic Party nominee for President of the United States, United States Secretary of State from 2009 until 2013, a United States Senator for the State of New York from 2001 to 2009, and the First Lady of the United States from 1993 to 2001. On October 17, 2019, she publicly stated in an interview that “somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary … [is a] favorite of the Russians… Yeah, she’s a Russian asset.” The press extensively republished and disseminated these statements, which were interpreted widely as Clinton asserting that Gabbard is a Russian asset.
The complaint seeks compensatory damages and an injunction prohibiting the further publication of Clinton’s defamatory statements.
The case is Tulsi Gabbard and Tulsi Now, Inc. v. Hillary Rodham Clinton. A copy of the full complaint is available here.
I often wonder why humanity keeps playing with a system that’s completely corrupt and broken. Our ‘leaders’ don’t seem to have humanity and planet Earth in mind when it comes to making their decisions. Today, the system is a representation of greed, fear, ego, profit, and much more, but one thing is for sure, it’s far from serving the people and other beings that reside on our planet. We need leaders that truly care about our environment, the people, preservation, life, and abundance for all. What we really need is a complete collapse of the current system we are playing with, and to implement something far greater that is more in line with the current level of human consciousness, and something that is more representative of our collective human potential. And most of all, we need to stop pointing fingers and blaming political figures for our problem because at the end of the day, on the deepest of levels, we are simply allowing it to happen. Politics doesn’t help as it makes us feel the power to change things is out of our hands, in in ‘theirs.’
You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete – Buckminister Fuller (L. Steven Sieden, A Fuller View – Buckminster Fuller´s Vision of Hope and Abundance for all“, p. 358), Divine Arts Media (2011)
One thing seems to be quite clear, people are tired of politics and it is no longer serving humanity. It’s useless and pointless, and is counterintuitive. It’s no longer serving the collective, and it’s quite questionable whether it ever has.
Snakes In Suits: Are Psychopaths Running The World?
- The Facts:
By comparing traits of psychopaths, as determined by experts, to those of people in corporate or political positions of power, we can see a clear link.
- Reflect On:
Psychopaths feel no remorse, guilt or empathy for their actions. When we look at the many inhumane acts that are currently taking place on our planet, it begs the following question with judgement aside: Are psychopaths running our world?
Editors Note: We felt this was important to discuss, not from a place of judgement and fear but one of observation so we can ask important questions as to whether or not we want to keep supporting the world we are co-creating at this time.
Often when we think of the word psychopath, we think of deranged serial killers that are hopefully locked up in prison for life. While there are many psychopaths who kill for reasons that are unfathomable to most of us and who are indeed in prison, there is an even greater number roaming free in our society and often using their condition to their advantage in any way possible. In fact, it is very likely that you know some–they might even be your colleagues.
Most of us do not know or work with any serial killers, at least not that we are aware of. So, what exactly is a psychopath and how can we define them? The dictionary definition is as follows:
“A person suffering from a chronic mental disorder with abnormal or violent social behavior.”
As you can probably tell, a lot more than just serial killers will fit into this broad definition. In fact, according to Canadian psychologist Dr. Robert Hare, a world-renowned expert on psychopathy, an estimated 1% of the Earth’s population is psychopathic and around 25% of the population of male inmates at federal correctional facilities are psychopathic.
It is important to note that, in contrast with the popular image of the ‘deranged psycho,’ psychopaths tend to be very well composed, take good care of their appearance and are very charming (think of Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman in American Psycho). Because of this you may have a difficult time spotting them out, as they are masters of deception and are able to fake a lot of the qualities that define regular people. Some other psychopathic traits, according to Hare’s Psychopathy Checklist, are as follows:
- Glib and superficial charm
- Grandiose estimation of self
- Need for stimulation
- Manipulative and cunning
- Complete lack of remorse or guilt
- Pathological lying
- Have a parasitic lifestyle, often latching onto and taking from others
- Have a history of early behavioral problems
- Overly impulsive
- Are very irresponsible
- Unable to accept responsibility for actions
- Unable to commit to long-term relationships
- History of juvenile delinquency
- Display criminal versatility
- Experienced a “revocation of conditional release”
- Lacks realistic long term goals
- History of promiscuous sexual behavior
- Have poor behavioral controls
- Are callous and lack empathy
- Have a “shallow affect” (psychopaths show a lack of emotion when an emotional reaction is appropriate.)
You can actually rate yourself to find out if you are psychopath. On each criterion, the subject is ranked on a 3-point scale: (0 = item does not apply, 1 = item applies somewhat, 2 = item definitely applies). The scores are summed to create a rank of zero to 40. Anyone who scores 30 and above is most likely a psychopath. Hare has used this test and checklist to detect which inmates are psychopaths.
Snakes In Suits
What many of us may not realize is that psychopaths actually thrive in the corporate world. Hare has actually co-authored a book with Dr. Paul Babiak on this topic entitled, Snakes In Suits: Understanding and Surviving the Psychopaths in Your Office. Psychopaths manipulate others to accrue power, sometimes pitting them against each other in an attempt to divide and conquer. They are often attracted to bigger, dynamic corporations with very little structure or supervision. They generally don’t work well in teams because they don’t like to share information or skills and it brings them joy to watch others fail. They are addicted to power, status and money. Sound familiar?
The corporate world is set up to favor psychopathic traits such as fearlessness, dominant behavior and immunity to stress. Because of this, psychopaths often find themselves in these types of positions, and then have an easier time climbing the corporate ladder and obtaining positions of great power. This is where they can do real damage to society as we see it today.
Are Psychopaths Running The World?
Not only as corporate heads do psychopaths find success in our modern-day society, but also within our governments and political system — often as front-line politicians. This may come as a shock to you, but when you really look at some of the atrocities that are taking place on our planet, and if you’ve ever wondered how things that are so inhumane could actually be happening, well, therein lies part of your answer.
When you consider the war, genocide, senseless murder of civilians, treatment of the indigenous cultures of the world, chemicals in our food, air and water supply, acts of “terrorism”, war crimes and so many other unjust and cruel actions which are often instigated by our political leaders, it becomes easy to see how psychopaths actually fit the requirements for these types of roles quite well. As mentioned before they are masters of deception, pathological liars and often quite charming.
Many soldiers go to war and because they are conditioned to believe that they are fighting an enemy in the name of peace. They do as they are told and commit these heinous acts against other human beings. The reason why so many soldiers suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder is because it is not within human nature to murder other humans, and especially innocent civilians.
We already know how many politicians are crooked, but perhaps its time to start looking at them with the psychopath checklist in mind so that we can be better equipped to protect not only ourselves but our society from their malicious acts.
But Can’t We Help Them?
It is natural for anyone who is involved in spiritual work to have compassion for these individuals and feel compelled to help them overcome their psychopathic behavior. However, most research has pointed towards the understanding that psychopaths are born, not made and therefore cannot be cured. This is one of the main differences that separates sociopaths from psychopaths. Another is that sociopaths have a conscience, albeit a weak one, and will often justify something they know to be wrong. By contrast, psychopaths will believe that their actions are justified and feel no remorse for any harm done. Sociopaths are made, and have a higher likelihood of overcoming their current condition. However, many of those with sociopathic behavior will find themselves in similar corporate positions.
Hare’s research discovered that by attempting to heal or help a psychopath, you might actually be strengthening their cunning abilities, as they will find a way to manipulate you into believing that they are remorseful and understand how their actions were wrong.
