    President Obama has ordered a sharp increase in U.S. Special Forces deployed to Uganda and sent U.S. military aircraft there for the first time in the ongoing effort to hunt down warlord Joseph Kony across a broad swath of central Africa. At least four CV-22 Osprey aircraft will arrive in Uganda by midweek, along with refueling aircraft and about 150 Air Force Special Forces and other airmen to fly and maintain the planes, according to Amanda Dory, deputy assistant secretary of defense for African affairs. SNIP LRA attacks have decreased significantly and the number of people killed has dropped more...
  • Will Obama Soon Be Performing a "KONY 2012?"

    I'm not saying that Obama will march back and forth stark naked on Pennsylvania Ave. like the KONY 2012 guy did in San Diego, however the pressure on Obama due to the UTTER FAILURE of ObamaCare could cause him to reveal some bizarre personality outbreaks. Obama already seems generally exhausted by the ObamaCare fiasco and it will only get worse. One possibility is that he will reveal some weird behavior when he has to face the nation in January with the State Of The Union address. Will he crack like Gyp Rosetti did in "Boarwalk Empire" when his plan to...

    Oprah Winfrey suffered symptoms of a nervous breakdown last year while struggling to keep her OWN television network afloat while filming "The Butler," the media mogul revealed in an interview airing on Access Hollywood this week. Winfrey, 59, said she came to the realization that she was nearing her breaking point while interviewing Jason Russell last October. Russell, who directed the short documentary "Kony 2012" and spearheaded a social movement to capture the Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony, suffered a nervous breakdown in March 2012 and was diagnosed with "brief reactive psychosis, an acute state brought on by extreme exhaustion, stress,...

    Proof Positive - In My Opinion True Source Found For "Innocence of Muslims." (Obama)This is a Youtube video produced by user Montagraph who speculated that "Innocence of Muslims" was a false flag op. So did I. He has done a lot of work tracing numerous websites connected to the original uploading of the now famous video. His narrative starts out very slow but give it a chance. He does explain it all in detail and has sourced it all with URLs below his vid. Montagraph declines to say that his evidence is definitive so you be the judge. The internet...

    "We have different languages for what the truth means." ---Mike Daisey, fantasy monologist. KONY 2012. This American Life. These are just the lastest incarnations of fiction trumping fact in both the mainstream media as well as in alternate news outlets. In the latest outbreaks of this condition, we found out that the emperor, or rather KONY 2012 producer, wears no clothes in more ways than one. However, prior to this "documentary," which went viral on the web, being exposed as being short on facts, it was widely hailed by a coterie of liberal celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Justin Bieber, Rihanna,...

    I am thinking of writing an article for a major website about the latest rash of phony or exaggerated stories circulating such as KONY 2012 as well as the Mike Daisey scandal in which he perpetrated fraud with his phony reporting about conditions in the Apple factories in China. Therefore I am looking for a graphic poster on the theme of PHONY 2012. It should have that title in the graphic. However, don't make it specific only to KONY 2012. It should be generally about phony reporting. I've seen some PHONY 2012 images on the Web but they are too...

Jason Russell, 33, was also accused of stripping off his clothes and vandalising cars before he was detained in San Diego. Russell, an evangelical Christian, is a co-founder of the American advocacy group Invisible Children. Their 29-minute film has been watched by more than 100 million people and become the fastest spreading video ever.

    SAN DIEGO -- The director of the massively popular "Kony 2012" video about a fugitive Ugandan rebel leader was detained by police after he was found allegedly masturbating in public and vandalizing cars in San Diego, KNSD-TV reported Friday. Jason Russell, co-founder of the humanitarian group Invisible Children, was also apparently intoxicated or under the influence of a controlled substance when cops confronted him on a street corner in San Diego Thursday, police said. Police said Russell was "acting very strange." TMZ reported that Russell was dancing in the street wearing "speedo-like underwear," and then stripped and began making sexual...
  • "Is Kony 2012 a Psy-Op to get Obama 2012 elected?"

    This is from Fire Dog Lake Today I posted a diary about Black Agenda Report's new article, Social Media Scam Alert: Top Ten Ways to Tell Kony (2012) is PhonyWhile writing my last comment, something gelled in my mind. It had bothered me that the Kony 2012 video somehow believed that 100 US servicemen would get the job done. That seems too little, if you have a deadline of 1 year, and your target supposedly commands 30,000 armed militants. But it also seems way to little to constitute a serious escalation of US involvement in Africa (never mind whether us...
  • Kony 2012: Obama Makes George Soros Richer

    The Kony 2012 scam has been revealed and now it is time to look at Obama’s motivation to use American blood and treasure to wage war in Uganda even though Kony has not been seen for six years, is believed to be dead and American interests do not warrant this war. Follow the money. Where George Soros invests, U.S. taxpayer dollars follow. UGANDA: Recall that we recently learned U.S. taxpayer dollars were spent on the writing of Africa’s new Constitution. The obvious question is “Why”? In October 2011, WND’s Aaron Klein provided the answer [emphasis added]: Also in 2008, the...

    ...It has been revealed that indeed Invisible Children has been working with USAID, a US government agency that helps lay the groundwork for what could best be described as a modern-day imperial administrative network. It is now also revealed that Invisible Children attended the 2010 US State Department and Fortune 500 sponsored Alliance for Youth Movements (AYM) summit in London. AYM (also called Movements.org) it was reported, played a central role in preparing armies of US State Department funded, trained, and equipped activists to carry out the so-called "Arab Spring" years in advance. Much like KONY 2012, the Arab Spring...

    Obama’s billionaire friend has interests in African country’s oilTEL AVIV — An influential “crisis management organization” that boasts billionaire George Soros as a member of its executive board recently recommended the U.S. deploy a special advisory military team to Uganda to help with operations and run an intelligence platform. The president-emeritus of that organization, the International Crisis Group, is the principal author of Responsibility to Protect, the military doctrine used by Obama to justify the U.S.-led NATO campaign in Libya. Soros’ own Open Society Institute is one of only three nongovernmental funders of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect,...

    <p>A former senior Pentagon official told radio talk-show host Glenn Beck where to find the shocking truth about billionaire George Soros’ influence on President Obama’s decision to deploy U.S. troops to Uganda – as he directed Beck’s listeners to WND. On the March 9 GBTV show, retired Gen. Jerry Boykin, the former U.S. deputy under secretary of defense for intelligence – who has played a part in nearly every recent major U.S. military operation in the last four decades – said of WND’s Aaron Klein: Ads by Google Taking Action for AmericaDownload the CEOs' Plan for Jobs And Economic Growth. Just Released. www.businessroundtable.org He shows that there’s a more sinister side to this. And that is a George Soros connection to the whole influence on the administration of deploying U.S. military forces in there, certainly under the guise of going after Joseph Kony [leader of the rebel Lord's Resistance Army accused of major human rights atrocities], but I think there is some very good information in that article that shows there is a Soros connection to this whole thing. And, fundamentally, it’s about oil.</p>

    The chief executive of a group that produced a wildly popular video about African warlord Joseph Kony answered critics Monday, defending its tactics and spending practices. "I understand why a lot of people are wondering, 'Is this just some slick, kind of fly-by-night, slacktivist thing?' when actually it's not at all," said Ben Keesey of Invisible Children. "It's connected to a really deep, thoughtful, very intentional and strategic campaign." In an online video that runs more than eight minutes, Keesey acknowledges the sting of criticism since Invisible Children released the video "Kony 2012" last week, becoming an Internet sensation with...

    Chris Duane is on to something here. Kony 2012 has become an overnight YouTube sensation with over 70,000,000 downloads in a matter of days. The video describes the exploitation of young children by Joseph Kony, a warlord in Uganda. However, it is rumored that Kony is no longer present there. The organization promoting this production has spent big bucks on it. They are known for taking in lots of money for worthy African Child protection efforts, but paying out relatively little for the purpose. Chris believes the purpose of this 30 minute short video may be worse than anyone thinks....

    Earlier this week, I wrote about the Kony 2012 video and that while it espouses the noble goal of removing Joseph Kony from the Uganda region, there is also a uniquely surreal aspect to it. The man known as the Machine Gun Preacher, Sam Childers knows more about the region than anyone. He has been on the ground there for fourteen years. He builds orphanages for children and protects them with actual weaponry. In short, he's not your typical missionary. Childers has issued a response to Invisible Children's Kony 2012 video and while he congratulates the charitable organization for drawing...
