American Horror Story: The Shameful Truth About the Government’s Secret Experiments

It’s easy to denounce the full-frontal horrors carried out by the scientific and medical community within a totalitarian regime such as Nazi Germany. However, what do you do with a government that claims to be a champion of human rights while allowing its agents to engage in the foulest and most despicable acts of torture, abuse and human experimentation? Mind you, the U.S. government has seldom had its citizens’ best interests at heart.

Space War: Feeding the Military Industrial Complex

The chairman of the Armed Services Committee, Rep. Mike Rogers, is leading a push to militarize space. He wants to create a new arm of the military dedicated to confronting Russia and China. On this edition of The Geopolitical Report, we examine the Space Corps plan, part of a budget package that will deliver nearly $700 billion in funding to the military, billions more than requested by the Trump administration. The plan provides for combat-ready space forces that will fight wars in outer space.

Weapons & Energy: Putin-Erdogan Alliance

In the thirty-ninth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Izvestia, Vedomosti, and Kommersant. He discusses the weapons and energy deals currently being made between Russia and Turkey, the efforts by the Russian government to combat the falsification of the World War II history now rampant in the anti-Russian regimes in Eastern Europe, and the recent high-level negotiations of the U.S. and Russian diplomats in Washington, DC that seem to have led nowhere.

European Bank Failures: A Bellwether for Another Imminent 2008 Financial Crisis?

Did a series of banks not-so-randomly failing across Europe present a negative bellwether for another imminent 2008 Global Financial Crisis?  How would any average citizen know?  In this inaugural episode of Money and Fear, we’ll review a sampling of bank failures, weigh whether more institutions can and/or will fail, and what it all means for “systemic risks”, “contagion”, and other fun technical words used to nonchalantly summarize global economic mayhem.  We’ll also ask if there is any sense of a wider – or deeper – design to such wealth destruction which would seek financial asset consolid

Bumrushing China Containment in India and Australia

This week on Newsbud’s China Watch: Bumrushing China Containment in India and Australia.  What’s really going on between the Indian Army and the PLA in Bhutan?  Spoiler: it’s not a threat south to the Siliguri Corridor.  It’s competition between China and India east west along the Himalayan tier.  We’ll also take a look at Australia’s 50 billion dollar submarine screw-up, and find out who’s blocking Australia’s promotion to a full-fledged member of the China containment quadrilateral…and why.  And Is Liu Xiaobo’s death a case of medical murder?

Money and Fear

Newsbud is excited to announce our newest show, Money and Fear with Newsbud's financial expert Pye Ian. Money and Fear, is a program that will focus on the connections between global finance, geopolitics, currency wars, shifts in international trade, the Federal Reserve, government corruption and more.

Execution by Firing Squad: The Militarized Police State Opens Fire

Legally owning a gun in America could get you killed by a government agent. While it still technically remains legal to own a firearm in America, possessing one can now get you pulled over, searched, arrested, subjected to all sorts of surveillance, treated as a suspect without ever having committed a crime, shot at and killed. This same rule does not apply to government agents, however, who are armed to the hilt and rarely given more than a slap on the wrists for using their weapons to shoot and kill American citizens.

Project Mind Control: The CIA and Nazi Interrogation

On this edition of The Geopolitical Report, we delve into the dark art of mind control and its use in torture as practiced by the Nazis and passed on to the CIA. From Operation Paperclip to MK Ultra and beyond, Nazi scientists and their American counterparts collaborating with the CIA experimented on often unwitting subjects, dosing them with drugs, including LSD and mescaline, in an effort to control the mind and also enhance torture at a time when the Soviet Union and communist China were practicing brainwashing techniques.

Despite Trump-Putin Agreements, NATO Continues with Aggressive Plans

In the thirty-eighth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Izvestia, and Komsomolskaya Pravda.

DOD Spent $20,359,809,000+ on 287 Individual Contracts in June 2017 The Pentagon issues a jumbled list of every business day around 5:00PM local time. Our project distills an entire month of these contracts into an accessible form.

It’s Not Just China Containment Anymore…It’s China Rollback

This week on China Watch.  The Most Dangerous Letters in the world are still CPEC.  But don’t forget about SCS and DPRK!  The pot’s boiling in Asia.  It’s no longer Team China Containment.  It’s Team China Rollback, and it’s gearing up for a run at the PRC.  India is making the big move with a confrontation up by Bhutan. *

The Futility of an Armed Revolt: There Will Be No Second American Revolution

What we are now experiencing is a civil war, devised and instigated in part by the U.S. government. The outcome for this particular conflict is already foregone: the police state wins. The objective: compliance and control. The strategy: destabilize the economy through endless wars, escalate racial tensions, polarize the populace, heighten tensions through a show of force, intensify the use of violence, and then, when all hell breaks loose, clamp down on the nation for the good of the people and the security of the nation.

NSC-68 and the National Security State

National Security Council Paper NSC-68 was classified until 1975. The top secret report, completed by the Department of State’s Policy Planning Staff on April 7, 1950, set the stage for the creation of the military industrial complex. On this edition of The Geopolitical Report, we look at how the national security state and the military industrial complex are responsible for the death of between 20 and 30 million people, a toll that may rival Nazi Germany. By fiscal year 2015, military spending accounted for 54 percent of all federal discretionary spending.

White Twilight, Ameristralia Edition

Lynching Free Speech: The Intolerant State of America

The temperature is rising all across the nation. The “winter of our discontent” has given way to an overheated, sweltering summer in which shouting matches are skating dangerously close to becoming physical altercations. What most Americans don’t realize however is that the government has been anticipating and preparing for civil unrest for years now, as evidenced by the build-up of guns and tanks and militarized police and military training drills and threat assessments and extremism reports and surveillance systems and private prisons.

Torture in Yemen

Defense officials in the United States admit they participate in a brutal and illegal torture program set-up by the United Arab Emirates in southern Yemen. The program is a direct violation of the International Convention Against Torture and constitutes a war crime. On this edition of The Geopolitical Report, we examine the role the United States has played in expanding and normalizing the practice of torture while claiming plausible deniability by outsourcing brutality to contractors.

The Confessions of Spy Masters: CIA’s Tennent Pete Bagley & KGB’s Sergei Kondrashev

In this pilot edition of the new monthly show produced by Newsbud Tales from the Russian Intelligence, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the book published posthumously in 2015 by CIA veteran Tennent ‘Pete’ Bagley “Spymaster: Startling Cold War Revelations of a KGB Spy Chief as Revealed to His Ex-CIA Agent Friend.” He focuses on the information on the KGB operations and methods as communicated to Bagley by KGB veteran Sergei Kondrashev, some of which are genuinely surprising.

Pentagon Revs Up Regime Change Meatgrinder in Asia

The ISIS campaign of murder in Asia continued last week.  But the rise of ISIS, the jihadi threat the West loves to hate, but can’t seem to stamp out, masked an equally important phenomenon: the return of the US military to a leading role in the business of security, chaos, and bodycounts as Trump turns to the Pentagon to roll back the gains China made in Asia during the Obama years.  That means new policies and new dangers for Thailand, Burma, the South China Sea, and the Philippines.

The FBI: The Silent Terror of the Fourth Reich

With every passing day, the United States government borrows yet another leaf from Nazi Germany’s playbook: Secret police. Secret courts. Secret government agencies. Surveillance. Censorship. Intimidation. Harassment. Torture. Brutality. Widespread corruption. Entrapment. Indoctrination. Indefinite detention. These are not tactics used by constitutional republics, where the rule of law and the rights of the citizenry should reign supreme.

Cuban Pariah: Trump Freezes Thaw with Cuba

President Donald Trump is rolling back the thaw in relations with Cuba put into place by the Obama administration. Trump said the Cuban people deserve freedom. On this episode of The Geopolitical Report, we look at the installation of a brutal dictator by the United States on the island nation. Fulgencio Batista overthrew the Cuban government in 1952. His military regime ruled with an iron fist. Batista tortured and killed his own citizens for daring to challenge his authoritarian rule.

Witch Hunt in Oz! and Media Steps Up to Spin the ISIS Crisis

A big story dropped in Australia concerning Chinese influence in local politics.  It’s also a story of geopolitics and the pivot and applying the US Russia-threat infowar model to Asia.  But first, a look at how the Western media is handling a story I covered last week on China Watch: the remarkable fact that ISIS had somehow simultaneously inserted itself into three Asian battlefields in ways that support US objectives. Answer: blame the countries getting attacked!

‘We the Police State’: The Rise of the Political Psychopath

When our own government no longer sees us as human beings with dignity and worth but as things to be manipulated, maneuvered, mined for data, manhandled by police, conned into believing it has our best interests at heart, mistreated, jailed if we dare step out of line, and then punished unjustly without remorse—all the while refusing to own up to its failings—we are no longer operating under a constitutional republic.

London Terror Suspect Linked to British Intelligence

On this episode of The Geopolitical Report, we uncover Salman Abedi's, the Manchester suicide bomber, link to British intelligence. MI5 explains that it missed warnings on Abedi despite one sent by the FBI. This is part of a larger pattern. Since the 1990s, the British government has given jihadi terrorists a free hand to preach hate and murder while they worked simultaneously with British secret services. Leading imams Anjem Choudary, Omar Bakri, Abu Hamza al-Masri, and others have cooperated with the government.

Eurasians United: India and Pakistan Join Russia and China in Shanghai Cooperation Organization

In the thirty-seventh edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Izvestia, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Kommersant, and Komsomolskaya Pravda. He discusses the new generation of the Russian ballistic missiles, the recent summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Astana, Kazakhstan, the dispute between the U.S. and Russia regarding the seized Russian real estate in the U.S., and the changing health habits of the Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov.

Child Labor & Slavery in the Sundarbans: Interview with Kari B. Jensen

The history of the Sundarbans area can be sourced back to 200 AD, according to what’s been written in folklore.[1] It is one of the largest mangrove forests in the world, located on the delta of the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna rivers on the Bay of Bengal.

ISIS Crisis Hits Asia

The stakes got higher for China this week as ISIS exploded in China’s two core strategic zones--the South China Sea and Central Asia--with an insurrection in the Philippines and the murder of two Chinese nationals in Pakistan.  Funny coincidence?  Maybe.  Maybe not.  Maybe ISIS is using a niche strategy to pursue its resurrection in Asia through operations designed not to directly antagonize—or perhaps even please--the United States.  For whatever reason, ISIS has become a key headache for the PRC overnight, just as China’s geopolitical rise in Asia bumps up against the United States and India

The Republic Has Fallen: The Deep State’s Plot to Take Over America Has Succeeded

No doubt about it. The coup d’etat has been successful. The Deep State—a.k.a. the police state a.k.a. the military industrial complex—has taken over and is moving toward a global empire. The American system of representative government has been overthrown by a profit-driven, militaristic corporate state bent on total control and global domination through the imposition of martial law at home and by fomenting wars abroad. When in doubt, follow the money trail.  It always points the way. Every successive American president starting with Franklin D.

The Reality Winner Psyop

Sarah Leigh Winner, also known as Reality Winner, the NSA contractor busted for leaking a document to The Intercept, is a patsy framed by the Deep State. On this edition of The Geopolitical Report, we delve into suspicious circumstances in the case, including Winner's alliance with the alt-left and failed presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, her violent comments about President Donald Trump, the ongoing bogus charge Russia hijacked the election, the war on whistleblowers, and the connections between The Intercept and the National Security Administration.

Qatar – Russia’s Newest Ally in the Arab World?

In the thirty-sixth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from three Russian newspapers: Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Izvestia, and Kommersant. He discusses the Russian response to NATO military exercises near the Russian borders, the escalation of internal political tensions in Moldova, the reasons why Qatar might be the newest Russian ally in the Arab world, and how the Russian Parliament plans to deal with the alleged U.S./NATO interference in the Russian domestic politics.

AI Bots vs. Fake News, and How Tech Companies Hijack Your Mind

In this community exclusive edition of Mind Hack, Jeff DeRiso discusses the AI chat bot supposedly used to “detect fake news” on social media.  He also discusses the point where magic meets software design, and its ethical implications.  We’ll also explore an example of mass hypnosis, and why playing a musical instrument can help keep our minds sharp into old age. *

Miles Kwok on Fire! A Renegade Billionaire Takes on the Chinese Communist World, or At least Xi Jinping’s Piece of It

This week on Newsbud’s China Watch with Peter Lee: Miles Kwok on fire!  Along with the rest of the planet! In a two and a half hour periscope broadcast on May 29, Miles Kwok went pretty far, and maybe a little further than he intended to, picking fights with journos, billionaires, communists, and maybe the entire communist party of China. *

America’s Reign of Terror: A Nation Reaps What It Sows

The U.S. government isn’t protecting us from terrorism. The U.S. government is creating the terror. It is, in fact, the source of the terror. Just think about it for a minute: almost every tyranny being perpetrated against the citizenry—purportedly to keep us safe and the nation secure—has come about as a result of some threat manufactured in one way or another by the U.S. government. Cyberwarfare. Terrorism. Bio-chemical attacks. The nuclear arms race. Surveillance. The drug wars. In almost every instance, the U.S.

Seth Rich: Killing the Messenger

On the night of July 10, 2016, DNC employee Seth Rich was shot to death by an unknown person or persons in the affluent Bloomingdale neighborhood in Washington, D.C. The murder has yet to be fully investigated. The DNC has warned off investigators, the police are withholding key evidence, and the mayor does not want the investigation to go forward for political reasons. The ER doctor who looked after Rich is connected to the Clintons. Evidence points to Rich being the person who gave Wikileaks the Clinton and Podesta emails.

Another War in the Balkans? NATO and Russia Digging the ‘Hybrid’ Trenches

In the thirty-fifth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from three Russian newspapers: Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Izvestia, and Nezavisimaya Gazeta. He discusses the current issues of contention between Russia and Ukraine, the new economic deals between Russia and Iran, the outcomes of the recent meeting between the Russian president Vladimir Putin and the newly elected French president Emmanuel Macron, and the recent escalation of overt and covert tensions between NATO and Russia in the Balkans.

Cults and the Group Mind: What Fringe Religious Groups Teach us About Ourselves

In this week’s edition of Mind Hack, Jeff DeRiso discusses how one of the new services offered by Facebook seeks to monopolize internet speech in the developing world.  He also looks at the recruitment tactics of religious cults, and how these tactics often lead to tragic endings.  We’ll also explore the roots of fictional narratives, and why people prefer narratives over raw information. *

One Belt One Road One Backlash

Newsbud Exclusive- New York Times Makes Case for Killing Children in Yemen

Hastert Pedophilia Cases- Clinton Scandals, FBI & the COINTELPRO II Directive

Welcome to Probable Cause with Sibel Edmonds. A new accuser has come forward alleging sexual assault in a lawsuit filed against Former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert. The accuser claims that Hastert sodomized him in the 70s when he was 9 years old. This lawsuit comes several years after a hush money case revealed allegations of sexual abuse against Hastert from his days working as a high school wrestling coach in Illinois.

The Government IS the Enemy of Freedom

On paper, we may be technically free. In reality, however, we are only as free as a government official may allow. We only think we live in a constitutional republic, governed by just laws created for our benefit. Truth be told, we live in a dictatorship disguised as a democracy where all that we own, all that we earn, all that we say and do—our very lives—depends on the benevolence of government agents and corporate shareholders for whom profit and power will always trump principle.

9/11, Saudi Arabia, and the 28 Pages

Is Saudi Arabia responsible for the terror attack of September 11, 2001? In this episode of The Geopolitical Report, we look at the heavily redacted 28 Pages of the final chapter of the report of a 2002 congressional intelligence inquiry into the attack. The Sept. 11 commission found there was no evidence to indicate that the Saudi government or Saudi senior officials individually had supported the attacks, and the kingdom’s government has consistently denied it had any role in the plot.
