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.

The Mastermind of Hamas: Who is Mohammed Deif?

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

 Without an army for the people, there is nothing for the people.  – MaoTse-tung (On Guerrilla Warfare)

 

Mohammed Deif is the most dangerous man in the world.

Confronted with the world’s two most militaristic national horrors, and with the civilized world looking on in hand-wringing anguish, Hamas has commanded both these villains of inhumanity to their knees; the negotiating table in Cairo.

The iron-fisted leader of Hamas, Mohammed Deif, is closer than ever before to a victory for the autonomy of Gaza, and a National victory Palestine.

More importantly a victory for the remaining civilized world.

The Israeli controlled media, having few facts about Mohammed Deif, much less... Read More

Terminal Apathy?: What Rats Say About Americans.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.” – Aristotle

When considering the cause of national apathy, Americans are evidently physiologically and socially similar to the junk food addled laboratory rat. Both tolerate repressive environments while confined against their will in a maze. In the natural desire to escape and find freedom, like the affected rat, Americans passively accept their confinement, acquiescing without struggle to a life of controlled stimulation and manipulation by all manner of drugs, tests, and mandated choice of direction. In a country objectively descending into chaos, why don’t American care? In recent studies at the University of California/ Los Angeles (UCLA), these same rats evidence one reason for America’s irrational disinterest in self-preservation.

In ever-more-frequent and growing worldwide protests, resistance to the American empire’s imposed maze increases. Strangely, Americans offer no similar resistance at all. The social, economic, and political problems in the USA mirror those of an empire afflicted world, yet in the “exceptional” nation most would rather chew off their tails than find the energy to extricate themselves from their maze. Examples of exceptionally paltry public resistance and protest abound. Rarely does an American protest amount to more than a few hundred temporarily outraged souls who then quickly return to their couches when told to do so by the well-armed militia of the government they came into the streets to change.

Why is America the isolated case study of this strange domestic malady that may best be summed-up as: clinical, terminal apathy?

From TPP San Diego/ U.S. Chief Negotiator Calls 135 Members of Congress, Four Senators, Liars!

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

“Is that thing on?” gasped Barbara Weisel, U.S. Chief Negotiator at the Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations after having just accused four U.S. senators, and one hundred thirty-two congress persons, of lying to the American public.

This included reference to Sen. Ron Wyden who has, repeatedly, demanded to see a copy of the treaty. Milliseconds after accusing one fourth of the U.S. congress of being dishonest she spied the arch enemy of all political miscreants blinking menacingly next to her; the voice recorder.

Now, clutching this reporters’ voice recorder, she anxiously attempted to shut it off and, or, erase the recording. “You can’t record this”, she continued while still fidgeting with the gadget, obviously aware that she had been caught in several very inflammatory, and by all reports fraudulent, accusations. She is employed by congress. You would not know it to speak with her.

Reaction from Sen. Wyden’s Office was direct and swift despite the pending 4th of July holiday.

“It is disappointing that a member of the USTR staff would make comments like this in the press and it underlines the concerns of Members of Congress that the negotiators are not taking the interests and input of individual Americans seriously in the negotiating process.” responded Tom Caiazza, Press Secretary for Sen. Wyden

TPP: What Media?! – The Whores of the 4th Estate.-Part Four

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Author’s Note: This is Part Four of a previous report direct from the 2012 San Diego TPP negotiations re-published by Activist Post to bring urgent awareness of the threat of TPP to its American and international readers. Like the European, TTIP, TPP is treason. TPP must be stopped. Now! B.R-T.

In the land of the “exceptional” a new, unjustifiable definition of journalism has over-ridden the previously time-honored tenants regarding the obligatory role of the press: that of presenting the whole truth of any story via documented facts. These-days, the role of the press is reduced to complicity in pervasive, blatant propaganda. Hence, it is not what the reader is told that truly matters; it is what is deliberately left-out.

So, as Chief US Negotiator at the San Diego Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement negotiations fled the scene of her crime- having moments before accused four US senators and one-fourth of the US House of Representatives of being liars- she strangely, it seemed, sought refuge from this reporter at the first of only three Press Conferences to be held during the eight day event

STOP TPP: YOU! …are the “Technical Barrier to Trade [Greed]”- Part Five

TPP
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Author’s Note: This is Part Five of a series on the upcoming threat of TPP. The previous report was direct from the 2012 San Diego TPP negotiations re-published by Intellihub to bring urgent awareness of the threat of TPP to its American and international readers. In this, the final chapter, an update and references to the full text of TPP are provided. Like the European TTIP, TPP is treason. TPP must be stopped. Now! B.R-T.

You are a, “Technical Barrier to Trade” [Greed]. You are thus specifically defined within the finalized (Chapter 8) language of the finalized Trans Pacific Partnership Treaty(TPP). Or, you would be if you, the junk-food addled, disaffected and terminally apathetic American, finally cared enough to exercise any personal respect for self-preservation. As shown in the previous four-part series- from the San Diego TPP negotiations- the twelve nations of TPP had better wake-up. Quick!

This past weekend, many countries in Europe saw huge protests in their capital cities against TTIP (Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership)- the European mirror image of the Obama inspired treason known worldwide as, TPP. Since TPP was finalized and then very quietly signed in New Zealand on Feb. 4, 2016, these past few months anti- TPP protests in the US are less than minimal.

Did Rap Music Pull the Trigger?

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Within the forced anonymity of cold, hard concrete walls and non-stop, overhead fluorescent lights, rap musician, Brandon, “Tiny Doo,” Duncan remains in jail. It’s been almost six months. Duncan has no criminal record and knows that he was not involved in any crime.

The San Diego City district attorney agrees.

However, a newly fabricated crime, unique in legal reasoning , intends to incarcerate Duncan for at least twenty-five years. Or the rest of his life. For this crime he is ostensibly guilty: music.

“Sorry to keep you waiting. That was good news,” smiles attorney, Brian E. Watkins, as he leads the way from the waiting room into his private downtown San Diego office. Closing the door he continues, “That was the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union). They’re going to be filing an Amicus Brief in support of our case.” The ACLU, thankfully, combined with the efforts of attorneys like Watkins, has been the historical bastion of Constitutional reason, fighting civil liberties violations effectively and aggressively for decades. They’re a very big hitter and Watkins knows it. The implicit and far-reaching issues of the Case of Brandon Duncan are quickly bringing others to attention. Watkins considers this a, “test case.” The ACLU apparently agrees.

Rightfully so.

Justice Goes Deaf at Rap Music Trial.- Part Three

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Nine criminal defendants are not the only ones who are on trial, here, in a San Diego, California courtroom. This trial, it turns-out, is more about the American legal system. Today, this court’s irrational decisions, as attested to by the raised eye brows, sideways glances and sharp words of each of the nine defense attorneys present, proved, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the criminal sat, not in front of, but behind the bench.

American justice, as evidenced in the courtroom of Judge, David M. Gill this past Friday, Jan. 23, 2015, cares not any longer about the emasculated US Constitution. As the trial of innocent Rap musician, Brandon, “Tiny Doo,” Duncan began at 1:30 PM, it would be a matter of minutes before this supposed trial became a surreal, Kafka-esque scene of first-time, twisted legal logic; turning two-hundred-plus years of legal precedent into farce.

A View to a Kill- The Police Killing of Evan Kwik (a true story)

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

One. Two. Three. Four uniformed police passed my window… moving silently, even paced, side-by-side, thirty feet from where I sit. The four black from head to toe, locked and loaded, black gloved fingers on triggers, staring from under black helmets straight through the lenses of high powered black scopes down the barrels of black automatic rifles pressed tightly to the shoulder pads of their matching flack jackets.

America’s authoritarian machine was in full force. On my street. Moving fast.

In moments our quaint four-block area of coastal north San Diego County would be sealed off. In our troubled times cops do as they please. When violating Constitutional protections they don’t like being seen. This scene, fiction? No. My street. America.

Cover, in the form of a small army, was coming. Full speed.

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

 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.

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
