Hizbullah Today: Of Power, Money, and… the People.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

With the last shot of the 2006 war fired and the IDF moving back into Israel, Lebanon began to heal its wounds. At the same time, Hizbullah, that had so successfully turned back the tides of war, began to rebuild- this time in new ways.

Using the respect it had gained by fighting for all of Lebanon, while the Lebanese army looked on from safe havens to the north, Hizbullah began the decade-long process of moving from purely a defensive military to a full faceted political organization. Leader Nasrallah has been consistent, methodical and unwavering in these nationalist goals and by doing so has dragged the previously western aligned Lebanese political parties into having to similarly support their country first or die at the ballot box. All signs point to resounding success.

The memory of the 2006 war- and its resulting horrors- lives on daily in the minds of all, here. However, without exception, the dozens of Lebanese interviewed for this article made it very clear that they want peace above all else. However, a thorough understanding of Israeli expansionism- past and present- temper their optimism.

Hizbullah: “You Don’t See Them…They See You!”

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley
  [Note: This is Part Four of a multi-part expose direct from Istanbul and Lebanon. Please see Part One, Part Two, or Part Three for info. not repeated here.] “This is not good!” cautions a new Lebanese friend in a stern tone of warning, clutching this reporters arm for emphasis. “This, where you are going.. it is their neighbourhood… Hizbullah’s neighbourhood. They control this completely!” Protesting that this quest is well-intentioned, no secret and no threat, this friend provides probably the most important council, and most accurate statement, in...

Deflating the American Bully- The World Raises It’s Fists.

Deflating the American Bully- The World Raises It’s Fists.
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

-“Once you strip away that feeling of invincibility, he can be had.” – Rocky Marciano.

Bullies historically, nationally, and American have all suffered from an arrogance born from remaining unchallenged after vanquishing weaker foes. Flush with the illusion of invincibility the world-wide bully, America, has reaped its terror on scores of the world’s countries and their citizens. What all bullies fear most is a challenger. One that can expose his weaknesses, thereby giving renewed strength to his victims.

Since the people of south-east Asia threw them out in 53,000 body bags, post cold war USA has so far only picked on countries having little ability to defend themselves. The US military and/or their proxy army, NATO, has avoided any fair fight. From puny Panama(1) and Grenada(2), to Iraq and Afghanistan, and now off to Northern and Central Africa(3) by way of the Middle East and Western Asia(4), the world has watched this accelerating thirty year set of American economic plunder and social atrocity. While sanctifying,”Freedom”, and, “Democracy,” the US has manifested a more accurate definition in the minds its its victims; “Empire” and “Servitude.”

Ukraine seemed an easy geopolitical target for the same hegemonic script used since Vietnam(34). Propagate a fictitious national “democratic” uprising; have fictitious vilified Gov’t forces brutally attack the fictitious democracy; have American media use propaganda to effect the final act of the play; over-throw the existing Gov’t by bringing American muscle to bare,”in country.”

Of Hacktivism, Hackers and Leakers: Resetting the Bar of Real World Journalism.

Of Hacktivism, Hackers and Leakers: Resetting the Bar of Real World Journalism.
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

In a world of slanted journalism that pervades not only main stream media offerings but also the majority of “progressive” and “alternative” media, it is the hackers and leakers of vital information that are now providing a new and desperately needed return to real journalism. Recent examples of courage and risk in pursuit of full disclosure which counters media distortions of fact, must be followed. Hackers and leakers are- as shown this month- providing the public service mandate once enveloped within the vaunted parchment of the First Amendment- an obligation far too long forgotten.

America is the origin of media lies and a willfully ignorant public that believes them. Strangely, most US citizens wallow only in the proffered world of gray journalism- one that wraps the truth and the mind of the reader, instead, in the flag of nationalist colors. Thus stubbornly adhering only to their predisposed personal opinion, one belies demonstrative evidence to the contrary, this malady is shown, at least, in the irrational national adulation for two very flawed current presidential candidates. This opinion ignores an obviously controlled media that is promoting one candidate (using lies) while viciously attacking the other (using lies). This past month, repeatedly hackers and leakers across the globe have smashed America’s mindless and too regularly used false talisman: America is “exceptional” and therefore US democracy is functioning normally. Really?

SCREAMS IN THE DARK-Part One

SCREAMS IN THE DARK-Part One
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

At a court hearing on June 27, 2014, nine-year-old Lexi Dillon wants to go home to her mother, Ruby. Judge Glenn R. Salter has previously shown his contempt for Lexi’s well-being, child protection laws, required court process, and evidence in the many court hearings and his subsequent illegal rulings. All evidence proved that Ruby was a loving, caring mother; that foster care was abusing her daughter and that the father had repeatedly abused Lexi, as proved by the Tustin, CA Police Department.

This bastard of jurisprudence, Judge Glenn R Salter, refused to allow any of Ruby’s evidence, multiple expert witnesses or police investigators into his court to testify. He then ordered Lexi to be in the sole custody of her criminal father.

The father is the man who raped Lexi. Anally and vaginally.

SCREAMS IN THE DARK: Any Child They Want.-Part Two

SCREAMS IN THE DARK:  Any Child They Want.-Part Two
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley.

Part Two:

Down the road in San Diego County a young boy is missing, taken by a man who is not the father, not even a parent. Innocent mother Tammy Rief, who is from Alabama and has never lived in California, now sits in a California prison. Despite a Georgia court order keeping the kidnapper away from her child, and another court order giving Tammy, the mother, full custody, a California judge abused his court to steal her son, Jonah, from his home in Georgia and give him to a man documented to have abused her son.

Without Tammy Rief’s knowledge Judge Gregory W. Pollack was working in far away California with the kidnapper, Brian Sullivan, to have the FBI steal her and her son from Georgia.

This short story of injustice and child trafficking, applied to a San Diego Superior Court judge, Gregory W. Pollack, shows the unique, fraudulent and illegal applications of California law in favor of child kidnapping.

For Tammy losing her son, Jonah, started silently in an unknown court not in Georgia. California divorce court.

Tammy has never been married. Much less to anyone in California. Tammy had briefly dated the kidnapper, Brian Sullivan, in South Carolina but had not heard from him in over three years before he suddenly attempted to achieve custody of Jonah in her state of residence, Georgia. Tammy proved to the Georgia court that the kidnapper could not be the biological father and that Jonah was at risk to the kidnapper. Hence the judge issued the two restraining orders establishing full custody to Tammy and preventing the kidnapper anywhere near Jonah.

But, that was Georgia.
Undaunted, the kidnapper somehow got a California divorce court judge to award him custody of Jonah although he had never been married to Tammy or taken a paternity test. The California court had no jurisdiction, or legal right, to hear a divorce case or any case that did not have a connection to California law and California residency. Worse, Tammy did not receive notice, per law, of the out-of-state proceedings she had no knowledge of.

Epitaph For Eric Holder: “Guilty!”

Epitaph For Eric Holder: “Guilty!”
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley.

“I want you to know that everything I did, I did for my country.”- Pol Pot (Dictator of Cambodia, 1963-1981).

Similarly, on Monday, Sept 15, 2014 Department of Justice (DoJ) leader, Eric Holder, announced a new set of US programs designed to increase America’s internal ability to spy and report on its own citizens.

Not content to merely spy on US phones, internet services, bank accounts, safe deposit boxes, medical records, library records and facial recognition without a warrant, United States Attorney General (USAG) Holder has combined his Justice Dept. with the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) and the National Counter Terrorism Center to train selected Americans in every city and town to spy and report on any persons who are deemed to be potentially subversive. During Mr. Holder’s term the wide brush of “Terrorism” has grown broader than at any time in US history.

Six years hence, we are, now, all terrorists.

Trump in San Diego – A Love Fest of Ignorance and Hate.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

 

It’s 9:30 AM. The Trump rally doesn’t start until 11:30 and Trump are not scheduled for 2:00 PM, but already a line stretches beyond the far end of the San Diego Convention Center. It is a very long building that houses three separate huge halls end-to-end one of which will be used today. The crowd outside is already over 2,000. Some arrived as early as 4:30 AM. They all have tickets already for the sold-out show but are here early to get a good seat. Scalpers were advertising as much as $100.00 for the free tickets.

Walking west in a cold, for San Diego, May-gray morning towards the Convention Center and cutting through the well-marked “Free Speech Zone,” the tone for the day was set, for also coming into view were cops. Hundreds of cops. There would be more.

The threat posed by any of the three US presidential offerings is easily shown... Read More

A Brexit Lesson In Greek- Votes and Hopes Trashed on Parliamentary Floors.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

So…you, the UK voter, favored the Brexit! You, the EU voter, see the Brexit as the pendulum of democracy swinging away from un-elected central rule and returning to sovereign national priorities? You… will be proved wrong.

Sadly, yours is an optimism without memory of corrupt Members of the European Parliament (MEP) or of EU evils past and their backroom methods of dealing with the whims of free will, voting power and democracy. You must realize that these are anathema to the tenants of centralized rule. Indeed. History is about to repeat itself- less than a year later. Like the failures of Greece in June 2015, last week’s UK referendum is doomed.

Three-hundred-and-sixty-one days before the Brexit victory night of this past Thursday, Alexis Tsipras boarded a plane to Brussels with a confident smile on his face and a new populist referendum under his arm. As head of Syriza, the fledgling opposition movement avowed to stop EU hegemony over a positive Greek financial future, Tsipras had roared to power. In an attempt to fulfill this promise he scheduled a referendum- a non-binding popular vote requiring parliamentary approval- refusing troika financial demands of additional austerity that would further gut and sell-off his country to its core. Getting onto the plane Tsipras was all confident smiles and waves to his supporters. The world press was abuzz with the possibility of a Grexit from the EU.

How To Stop Trump in Exactly… 60, 59, 58 … Days!

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

“Perhaps America will one day go fascist democratically, by popular vote.”

-William L. Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.

 

Indeed. These are desperate times for the American voter. Desperate times call for desperate measures. You, the American voter, had only a Hobson’s choice of one of three fatally flawed presidential candidates.  A choice for the “lesser of [three] evils” is still a choice for evil. And, so, here you are!

Petitions?  Protests?  Death treats? Nonsense!

An exercise in creative thinking by the rational, intelligent and scared voter reveals reason, motivation and opportunity to stop the advent of the horror that is this presidential election’s final result.

It also reveals a very plausible plan. It has only one weakness. You!

How to Stop This Election Madness.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

In a mere sixty-one days after the election, on Nov. 8, 2016, the eventual president-elect can be stopped from taking the Oath of Office. It has happened three times before in US election history. However, this time it is the voter who can change the course of history. Every American man and woman, of every race, color, and creed, religion, ethnicity and sexuality over the age of eighteen can- this election- alter all US presidential elections, while seizing-back the reigns of a shattered democracy and Constitution.

Interestingly, deep under the rubble of what’s left of the eviscerated US Constitution lies an all-powerful shard awaiting to be used. Here the long-range wisdom and thinking of its authors two-hundred-plus years ago must now be fully considered and appreciated. The concerned reader will be pleased to learn that a treasonous Executive Branch,... Read More

A Whiff of Methane and the Odor of Corruption

Porter ranch methane gas leak
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

“Oh! Sure. Twice, just last week,” answered Porter Ranch resident Jim Baker to the question about whether the smell of methane gas was reaching his home.

 

Residents across the affluent north Los Angeles suburb of Porter Ranch report the same smell. Not good: methane gas is poison. On day one of an on-scene look at the world’s largest natural gas leak, which every day spews uncontrolled at extremely high pressure the equivalent greenhouse gas pollution of 4.5 million cars, another distinct smell is becoming obvious: political corruption.

 

High above Porter Ranch, natural gas well Standard Sesnon 25 (SS-25) has been blowing high-pressure methane gas into the air for months. The exact date that the blow-out began is uncertain since the owner of SS-25, Southern California Gas Company (Cal Gas), reluctantly admitted to the massive pipe rupture... Read More

Stopped!! Methane Blow-Out. Radioactive Fall-out. And … The Predictable Result.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

This past Thursday, Feb. 11, 2016 brought a welcome breath of fresh air to more than 4400 displaced Porter Ranch, CA residents. It was their first in more than four months. A mile or so due north and a thousand feet farther up the foothills of the Santa Susana mountains in Aliso Canyon, the nation’s worst environmental and health disaster since BP, has stopped. Natural gas well, SS-25 is dead.

After depositing more than 90 million metric tons of a very toxic gaseous cocktail from two miles deep under the mountains up into the atmosphere above 18.5 million mostly unsuspecting Angelenos, the corporate players who have caused this disaster are now assuring this same public that they are, suddenly, protecting their interests. As highlighted in the previous article, the... Read More

A Return to the Madness of: M.A.D.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

One generation later, madmen have returned. They bring with them the madness of… M.A.D.

Again, absolutely all politics are reduced to White or Black. There is no gray. All peoples of our world again exist within a fateful clash between only two distinct ideologies, best summed-up as; Good vs. Evil. Right vs. Wrong. Life or… death?

A mere generation ago the colors of worldwide military polarization were then thrust upon the innocent by mad politicians with similar delusions of empire who, then, portrayed their geo-political expansionism in the easily understood colors of  Red vs. Blue: East vs. West. The Cold War. The once Soviet empire vs. the ever-since burgeoning US contra-empire. The multitude of issues separating the two supposedly separate doctrines of Red or Blue ultimately distilled into one single, horrific doctrine of military nuclear... Read More

The Secret “American” Army.

Demo cartoon
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

A  new American army is  growing on American soil. They are prepared.

In hushed tones during conversations across the breadth of the heartland of America there are whispers. Quiet talk. About an army. Of Americans? An army prepared to defend an increasingly oppressed population craving reprieve from their  government’s increasingly draconian methods. This army, they say, is growing.

After firm handshakes all around, Dan T. and Gene R., who I had good reason to believe were both retired military, settled into our task at hand. I was in their company for the day on business. During the one-day meeting Dan and Gene revealed that they were indeed career military. Dan, Army. Gene, retired Navy. I attempted to politely avoid political discussion in the interest of decorum.

So at the first comment on politics from my hosts I took a long deep breath. My... Read More

” Indifference is the essence of inhumanity. George Bernard Shaw

 

Brutal inhumanity to man is now daily personified in Gaza while increasing across what still remains of Palestine. Israeli horrors rain down on an innocent civilian population not allowed to flee to safety of shelter anywhere in Gaza. The mounting list of, crimes against humanity, premeditated by Israel shows Gaza to be the modern metaphor for globally pervasive, endemic immorality and barbarism now... Read More

Ebola: Lies Your Media Told You.
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Now, American lies and media propaganda bring you Ebola.

To begin, consider:

– The Center for Disease Control (CDC), the epicenter for all world-wide media information and purported credibility about Ebola, is a for-profit, publicly listed, private corporation with a very dark, controversial and criminal past.

– On, April 29, 2010, the CDC acquired the patent, and ownership, for  the Zaire Ebola virus (ZEBOV) . By doing so, it acquired the financial rights for all pending bio-engineered forms of the heinous virus, including preventative vaccines and... Read More

A Freight Train of Opposition: The EU Vote.

A Freight Train of Opposition: The EU Vote.
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

 While EU leaders and their Washington sympathizers marginalize, rationalize, and excuse away Sunday’s historic European Union parliamentary election results, they deliberately avoid the greater point of concern. The people are coming.

French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls, called the sudden increase in new opposition Members of the European Parliament ( MEP) an, “earthquake.” He, too,  missed the correct metaphore. This staggering election result is a freight train. More passengers are climbing aboard daily. Destination: Capital City.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Dear Mr. Obama,

We cannot thank you enough for providing this past week a detailed and visually militarized definition of your failing country’s,“exceptionalism.” On May 28, 2014, to the cheers of budding West Point Military Academy cadets, you could not hear the global guffaws of laughter in response to your twisted excuses for this sad new lexicon of an ever threatened world.

Exceptionalism, however, describes America and American foreign policy much more accurately than you realize. Fortunately, and thanks to your finely crafted... Read More
