Zafar Bangash on “Pakistan’s Unending Political Crisis”
Listen HERE Zafar Bangash argues that since the founding of Pakistan in 1947 its leadership has blundered from crisis to crisis “like a corner drunk”—and the current catastrophe, brought on by corrupt leaders complicit in the anti-Imran Khan coup, is one of the all-time worst. His article offers an uncommonly blunt synopsis of the history of Pakistan, leading up to the recent coup by external forces (think US-IMF) and their internal collaborators: “When Imran Khan tried to chalk out an independent foreign policy by reclaiming some political space, a motley collection of criminals, murderers and money-launderers was cobbled together and…FULL ARTICLE

US tax dollars massacred Pakistani children

Why I am not a secularist
Tuesday’s radio guest, Feroze Mithiborwala, thinks that secularism is the solution to the problems of religious extremism and religious conflict in South Asia, and around the world. I disagree. I think religious extremism and religious conflict are being created/exacerbated by the New World Order as part of its war on traditional religion. It’s the same old “problem-reaction-solution” method they always use. Religious extremism and violence is the problem; the public reacts against it; then they offer a secularist New World Order dictatorship, run by closet Satanists, as the solution.Below is my response to a pro-secularism message from Feroze.-KB Hi Feroze,…FULL ARTICLE
Is Obama killing “kill list” critics?
Aaron Swartz, a prominent info-warrior and critic of Obama’s “kill list,” was found dead in New York Friday. As with so many freemasonic assassinations, including that of “DC Madam” Deborah Jean Palfrey, Swartz was hanged. Naturally the police are calling it suicide. Swartz’s death raises the obvious question: Can you criticize Obama’s barbarian, unconstitutional “kill list” without ending up on it yourself? My earlier article “Disable the purveyors”: Is US secretly liquidating dissidents? suggested that the US government “kill list” may include domestic dissidents as well as foreign opponents of US policy. But hey, I’m a reasonable, moderate guy. I’m…FULL ARTICLE
