How many times has the US said ‘just trust us’ and then lied?

Rachel Marsden

In a single day, two members of the American press asking for clarification and evidence from the Biden administration were painted as sympathizers of Russia and ISIS.

Efforts by US media to establish objective truth – rather than acting as stenographers for the government and its official narratives – is now apparently considered an act of disloyalty to your country, and loyalty to its enemies.

The first instance occurred during a gaggle in which the White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, addressed the US-led liquidation of the latest “ISIS leader,” Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi, in Idlib province, northwestern Syria, on Wednesday night. According to President Joe Biden’s televised retelling of events, the target blew himself up and took some family members and others out with him just as American troops were moving in for the kill. Why would he do that? Because he’s a “coward,” Biden suggested.

I know the US has put out its statement that [ISIS] detonated the bomb themselves. But will the US provide any evidence? Because there may be people that are skeptical of the events that took place and what happened to civilians,” NPR White House Correspondent Ayesha Rascoe asked.

Do you trust Biden or ISIS, Psaki asks skeptical reporter

Skeptical of the US military’s assessment when they went and took out the leader of ISIS?” Psaki replied. “That they are not providing accurate information? And ISIS is providing accurate information?

Note that the journalist didn’t say that ISIS (IS, Islamic State) had a counter narrative, just that the official story put out by the US government is worthy of skepticism. And the US has certainly earned skepticism in Syria. Not only have they peddled narratives portraying the Western private contractor-founded White Helmets activists as do-good humanitarians and objective witnesses rather than a convenient propaganda front, but just last November, the New York Times published a story with the headline: ‘How the U.S. Hid an Airstrike That Killed Dozens of Civilians in Syria’. In March 2019, according to the report, an F-15E fighter jet dropped a “500-pound bomb” on the town of Baghuz, right before another aircraft dropped two more bombs of 2,000 pounds each. It was only after the Times’ investigation that CENTCOM admitted it may have killed up to 80 people, including civilians, but argued the women and children may have been “combatants.”

Now one might figure that anyone in a war zone is fair game. OK, but then don’t be surprised when their countrymen end up hating the US for the next several generations (you know, because of the ‘freedoms’, as successive administrations routinely claim).

The Syrian conflict was also the backdrop to the US-backed murder of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani at neighboring Iraq’s Baghdad Airport two years ago, after which the Trump administration publicly claimed self-defense and US intelligence suggesting that Soleimani was planning an imminent attack on American interests. A White House memo later debunked that excuse.

The NY Times reports US forces ‘killed dozens in Syria.’ The reality is far worse

The same day as Psaki was fending off journalists who weren’t automatically buying the latest Hollywood movie scenario being peddled by Washington, State Department spokesman Ned Price accused a veteran journalist of favoring Russia over America when he dared to demand evidence for Price’s assertion that Russia was setting up a ‘false flag’ event to justify a Ukrainian invasion. 

Price accused Russia during a press briefing of “developing a fake pretext to initiate and potentially justify military aggression against Ukraine.” Veteran journalist Matt Lee of the Associated Press asked for proof – actual evidence to accompany Price’s assertions. Price then replied: “If you doubt the credibility of the U.S. Government, of the British Government, of other governments, and want to find solace in information that the Russians are putting out – that is for you to do.”

A long-standing respected member of the American press was promptly smeared – all because he dared show skepticism of what could ultimately become a NATO and US pretext for war rather than a Russian pretext. False flag rhetoric, suggesting some kind of potential future threat to a NATO ally, has been used by the military alliance to justify moving weapons ever closer to the Russian border.

The US is effectively setting up a narrative whereby anything that occurs now on the Ukraine-Russia border could be pinned on Russia and justify NATO aggression, regardless of who might be responsible for the act.

How many times has the US already created false flag pretexts to justify wars and invasions throughout history and then routinely lied to the public about the reality of the ensuing conflicts?

There has been the ‘imminent threat’ of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq that justified that country’s invasion. There was the ‘imminent threat’ with the Gulf of Tonkin incident that sparked US involvement in the Vietnam War, followed by the spectacle of the defeatist exit from the embassy in Saigon after telling the public that America and its allies were ‘winning’ the war. There was the ‘imminent threat’ of the Marxist Sandinistas in Nicaragua that supposedly justified secret weapons sales to Iran to fund the Contras, all while lying to the public about it. Then the ‘imminent threat’ of an armed Iran. More recently, there was the ‘imminent threat’ of the Taliban in Afghanistan, resulting in the White House declaring their ‘defeat’ post-invasion, followed years later by an abrupt US military exit from the country with the Taliban retaking total control.

Fear has always allowed the US government to mobilize public support – whether of communism, terrorism, or even a virus. Fear has also given them far too often a carte blanche to take actions that are of questionable value to the average person, whose interests are routinely sacrificed for those of an elite few. They no longer deserve the benefit of the doubt on anything that comes out of their mouths. And standing up for the American people’s best interests isn’t enemy action – it’s the very definition of patriotism.

  1. Man oh man, this is a must read from Rappoport this morning.

    I’ll post a few teasers from the article….

    Me…Ummm….did someone say insurrection….ha!…you ain’t heard nothing yet….this had escaped my mind…un-damn believable!!

    ((ONE: Susan Rosenberg is a key figure who has been involved in the administration and funding of Black Lives Matter.

    TWO: She has quite a life story. A long chapter would describe her work with a very active terrorist group.

    THREE: In 1983, that group exploded a bomb in the Capitol Building.

    FOUR: The bomb makes the January 6, 2021, break-in look like a picnic in the park.

    This is not fiction. If a studio made a Lifetime movie of the events, the plot line sketch would state: terrorist; her group exploded a powerful bomb just outside the Senate chamber in the Capitol Building; she was sentenced to 58 years on other explosives charges; *****sentence commuted by Bill Clinton;***** flash forward—she’s helping fund and administer Black Lives Matter.

    The Smithsonian Magazine describes the Senate bombing: “Just before 11 p.m. on November 7, 1983, they [M19, an all-female terrorist group, in which Susan Rosenberg was an important member] called the U.S. Capitol switchboard and warned them to evacuate the building. Ten minutes later, a bomb detonated in the building’s north wing, harming no one but blasting a 15-foot gash in a wall and causing $1 million in damage.”

    “After Rosenberg’s parole request was denied, President Bill Clinton commuted her sentence on his last day in office. She was one of 176 people protected by Clinton that day, including indicted fugitive March Rich and former Clinton Whitewater associate Susan McDougal…Clinton also commuted the 40-year sentence of Rosenberg co-conspirator Linda Sue Evans. Evans was imprisoned for 11 counts of false identification used to purchase firearms and for harboring a fugitive related to the armored car murders. She was also convicted in 1990 for participating in a number of terrorist bombings, including at the U.S. Capitol Building.”))

  2. Imagine the pressure on Reiner Fuellmich now. The fate of the alleged free world hanging in the balance on his shoulders.

    Interestingly, he’s mentioned that his cohort, Viviane Fischer, had the original spark to convene this investigation and court case. Go Viviane!!

      1. SS, I have great respect for your opinion and comments. What proof have you that Fuellmich is controlled oposition? I DO understand it’s likely his case will go nowhere, but it is bringing the facts to the general public and that is of immeasurable importance sine the MSM is under total control of the enemy.

  3. Just seeing a photo of Ass-Tube Powell pisses me off. There’s a special place in hell for him and his mass murdering Brethren. The wing is reserved for anyone with a million plus souls’ blood on their hands. I wonder if Stalin, Mao and Hitler said “Howdy Neighbor” when Ass-Tube arrived in hell.

    I was watching a 5 hour video made by a defector of the Free Masons. If you read some of the penalties for revealing their secrets of initiation, the guy is a walking deadman. The means of killing you include ripping out your tongue and cutting off the top your skull after burying you up to your neck at low tide. I think this guy is legit. He is a musician who’s path had been paved in gold. The compilation of musicians and politicians he presented flashing the one eye, hidden hand and triple 6 signals were staggering. They included Peter Gabriel, one of my favorites. It also included the Dali-Lama. The Defector’s claim that there is virtually no one who makes it to the top of Politics, Media, Religion or Music unless they are a card carrying Satanist. Free Masonry and their humanitarian works are the force field that protects and hides their true Satanic nature.

    I know I am revealing nothing new to this gang. Does anyone know what happened to the film Gray State after the Director, his wife, kid and dog was murdered? In the trailer, mass murder by guillotine was being carried out by a Free Mason. The Defector is convinced that the trailer in Gray State is exactly what is planned for the US and that’s why the whole family was killed. They need a much bigger event than the Fake-Demic to create enough chaos and despair to implement the New Age which some refer to as the New World Order, Mark of the Beast system

  4. Vietnam you ask? My Army brother was in Vietnam and he wrote me that the war in VN was fought in a manner to be lost on purpose. The US Army would take ground in the morning and then give it all back to the North VN by evening. This is how my brother-in-law was killed. His name is on that deceptive black wall in DC….57,000 lives sacrificed in VN, all for nothing.

    Fast forward to 2022. I hear everyday on my radio that those covid shots and boosters are good for you. Yeah, sure.


    1. So true Don. My late uncle served in the Marines in Vietnam and was drafted when he was living in Brooklyn waiting on his green card. He did his first combat duty when he was 18 years old. He and another family friends always said that they hated fellow Vietnam veterans who walked around with hats and pins and vest with their branch of service or unit they were in. It’s reeked of arrogance and immaturity because it wasn’t a holiday trip or vacation and these men were wearing trinkets or souvenirs from an exotic location.

      On the first two days in the field his platoon lost 6 men all under the age of 25. He called the wall in D.C. the wall of shame. And on his first day back in the US from his third and last combat deployment standing at a bus stop a older lady shouted baby killer and threw a brown bag of dog shit at him. Welcome home !
      He died of alcoholism at age 61. The only time he talked about combat and his experiences was when he was drunk.

      1. Salty: Your Marine uncle trusted the US government and did what he was told to do. But the sad fact is that the US Government was lying to everyone about the war in Vietnam. We were not saving VN from the commies, we were making sure the commies took over the whole of VN. That action was the sacrifice of 57,000 dead US troops.

  5. I would really appreciate some feedback as to where this will go. The process is real, as is the ICC, of course. But I believe it’s up to the people to make sure the process has results. The US, as far as I know, is not a signatory to the ICC. Not that it matters, as our word is worth nothing. For it to mean anything, it will take an action similar to what the Canadian truckers are doing at this moment.

    BREAKING! International Tribunals Start Next Week! Gates, Fauci, Tedros etc FACE THE DEATH PENALTY!

    1. Hey Will my question would be who is enforcing the punitive damages from these cases ? My fellow Americans are too distracted by the empty food store shelves and how much money they’re going to get back from taxes.
      Here in Blairsville, Georgia I spoke to a lady at the meat counter and we were commenting on how the prices of beef have went up 30% since the end of last year. And she stated to me that her brother owns a cattle farm with 125 heads of beef and can’t get his cows to the slaughter house for the next five months. I asked why she say to me as clear as water… nobody wants to work now and just want to collect a government check and stay at home. This part of Georgia is red as blood with Republicans and good ole Southern Baptist folks. With very little immigrant population and rural American is going to save us….

    2. Will, here’s an article about it with the opening statement from Grand Jury Day 1. Attorney Reiner Fuellmich is at 19:20 in the video.


      from Monica Waade:



      A group of international lawyers and a judge are conducting criminal investigation modelled after the United States Grand Jury proceedings in order to present to the public all available evidence of COVID-19 Crimes Against Humanity to date against “leaders, organizers, instigators and accomplices” who aided, abetted or actively participated in the formulation and execution of a common plan for a pandemic. This investigation is of the people, by the people and for the people, so YOU can be part of the jury.

      Through showing a complete picture of what we are facing, including the geopolitical and historical backdrop – the proceeding is meant to create awareness about the factual collapse of the current, hijacked system and its institutions, and, as a consequence the necessity for the people themselves retaking their sovereignty, and the necessity to first stop this plandemic´s measures by refusing to comply, and the necessity to jump-start their own new system of health care, education, economics and judiciary, so that democracy and the rule of law on the basis of our constitutions will be reestablished.

      More information:

      1. I’m watching, Toni, but I have to ask is this independent of the ICC, a replacement of it or preliminary to it. What am I missing?

      2. I’m doubtful but if any of this happens it’ll be a miracle.

        Hardly a week passes that I do not hear a news report on how horrible was the slaughter at Sandy Hook. That was almost ten years ago.

      3. Jim Stone has posted that segment on his site this AM

        …along with this statement:

        This is the most censored video on the planet. It got VAPORIZED everywhere. Want to see what the resistance looks like? This is it.
        Obviously this is not a real court case, it is just a really good synopsis of what is going on.
        I have to watch my words and avoid saying the obvious with regard to what this video says to avoid having the site shut down. The lawyer is better at this than I am so watch. 20 minutes that seems like 1 minute, there is zero fluff. 100 percent of every aspect of the world takeover and supporting scams laid out cold in 20 efficient minutes.
