CNN Lavishes Praise on Criminality of the CIA

CNN Lavishes Praise on Criminality of the CIA By Kurt Nimmo It is perfectly logical for the corporate media to slobber praise on the CIA, the progenitor of its current format of endless propaganda, lies, and alternate versions of reality.

Establishment Right and Left Call for COINTELPRO 2.0 Op-Ed by Kurt Nimmo Both heads of the two-headed establishment political hydra want to resurrect COINTELPRO, the FBI’s illegal subversion program, in response to speech they oppose and want outlawed.

The CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) wants to make it a whole lot easier to throw journalists in jail if they say or write the…
