Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370: 9/11-Style False Flag Attack Gone Awry?
Interview with Dr. Kevin Barrett
Press TV has conducted an interview with Dr. Kevin Barrett, author and radio host from Madison, about the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.
What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.
Press TV: Well Dr. Barrett, let’s look at it from a technical perspective. Do you think it is possible for no radar system to have picked up this airplane, even as it allegedly went way off course for hundreds of kilometers?
Barrett: No, that is not possible. In fact this aircraft cannot be just lost. It cannot have just disappeared. This makes no sense.
There is military radar and satellite coverage of that area. The CIA base in Alice Springs Australia knows precisely what happened to that plane. And it is interesting the Malaysian government has asked…

5 Reasons Obama’s 7.1 Million Number Is Meaningless
Big Government ^ | 4/2/2014 | Ben Shapiro

On Tuesday, President Obama triumphantly announced that, with the power of the mainstream media, Hollywood, and the threat of the IRS, the mission had been accomplished: 7.1 million Americans had selected an Obamacare plan.
Obama’s tone was nothing short of exuberant: “7.1 million Americans have now signed up for private insurance plans through these market places. 7.1! Yep!” He then went on to criticize those who had expressed objections to Obamacare for its deprivations of plans, doctors, drugs, and liberty: “Why are folks working so hard for people not to have health insurance?”
Now, it was always foolhardy for Republicans and conservatives to stake their objections to Obamacare on the number of sign-ups; Social Security is going bankrupt despite 100% enrollment. The reality is that Obama was always destined to hit his required numbers because, after all, he has the power of government to compel action. The real problem with Obamacare has little to do with the number of people signing up, and a lot to do with the restrictions on insurance companies and reimbursement rates to doctors.

Officials raised the possibility on Wednesday that the fate of the Malaysia Airlines plane missing almost a month may never be determined, even as they said its disappearance is now being treated as a criminal investigation.
“Investigations may go on and on and on. We have to clear every little thing,” Malaysia Police Chief Khalid Abu Bakar said, the Associated Press reports. “At the end of the investigations, we may not even know the real cause. We may not even know the reason for this incident.”
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared March 8 soon after departing Kuala Lumpur for Beijing, and subsequent analysis of data transmission indicates it eventually crashed somewhere in the southern Indian Ocean. All 239 passengers and crew are presumed lost to the chilly and tempestuous waters.
Khalid said the criminal investigation is still focused on four possibilities—hijacking, sabotage and psychological problems of anyone aboard the Boeing…

The head of the Secret Service is looking to reassure lawmakers that the latest instance of misconduct by agents was another isolated incident.
“I have made clear to the entire workforce that I will not tolerate unprofessional behavior or misconduct at any level—both on and off duty,” said Secret Service Director Julia Pierson, according to prepared remarks obtained by CNN. “I remain committed to swiftly and vigorously addressing any instances of misconduct that are brought to my attention.”
In late March, three agents charged with protecting U.S. President Barack Obama during a trip to the Netherlands were forced to take administrative leave after one passed out in a hotel hallway following a group drinking binge.
The incident comes after two secret service personnel crashed a rental car in a small Florida Keys town on March 7. According to the state’s Highway Patrol, a local trooper detected “a slight odor of…
