A powerful and timely investigation into the media's role in war, tracing the history of embedded and independent reporting from the carnage of World War One to the destruction of Hiroshima, and from the invasion of Vietnam to the current war in Afghanistan and disaster in Iraq. As weapons and propaganda become even more sophisticated, the nature of war is developing into an electronic battlefield in which journalists play a key role, and civilians are the victims. But who is the real enemy? John Pilger says in the film: "We journalists... have to be brave enough to defy those who seek our collusion in selling their latest bloody adventure in someone else's country... That means always challenging the official story, however patriotic that story may appear, however seductive and insidious it is. For propaganda relies on us in the media to aim its deceptions not at a far away country but at you at home... In this age of endless imperial war, the lives of countless men, women and children depend on the truth or their blood is on us... Those whose job it is to keep the record straight ought to be the voice of people, not power." For propaganda relies on us in the media to aim its deceptions not at a far away country but at you at home... In this age of endless imperial war, the lives of countless men, women and children depend on the truth or their blood is on us... Those whose job it is to keep the record straight ought to be the voice of people, not power."

Formerly with NASA, Michael transitioned his image processing skills (along with a brief stint as an actor) into the then-new motion picture computer animation field and has worked on films such as "Star Trek", "The Day After Tomorrow", and has supervised visual effects on "Brainscan," "LOST", and "Hawaii Five-0." Michael has taken a sabbatical from film work to focus all his efforts on peace activism. Michaels foray into blogging began before the word was even invented, and happened almost by accident when he spotted a suspicious photograph being broadcast on ABC news in 1994 related to the death of White House deputy Council Vincent Foster. Since that sudden beginning, Michaels website has expanded to cover diverse topics including the JFK assassination, the accidental shoot-down of TWA 800, election fraud, health issues, Saddams non-existent nuclear weapons, 9-11, the economy, and of course, the lies used to trick the United States into wars of conquest on Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Iran. Michael resides in Hawaii with his wife Claire, who is a composer and creates much of theme music used on the What Really Happened radio show.
The Asian financial crisis in 1997AD affected all nation except Israel and Christian nations (excluding Catholic countries). The war torn countries, mainly from the undeveloped nations, suffered tremendously financially and economically. They owed the Western nations by the billions. The daily wage of a labourer average a few dollars only (insufficient to buy the daily basic food for the family) whereby the advance Christian nations has an average of over US$100 per day. This is a great imbalance 1st Seal was opened in 1993 when the PLO-Israel Peace Accord was signed.
There's a bunch happening in tech this week, and a lot of it right here in Washington: a US Senate committee is looking to make changes to the Electronic Communication Privacy Act (ECPA) so that investigators will require an actual warrant if they want to obtain outdated emails; but meanwhile a study shows that government surveillance is on the rise, at least in terms of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA. Requests for Americans' data using FISA have gone up during the last year, and little remains know about the shadowy process of how and when Uncle Sam asks for personal user data. All of this surveillance might seem confusing, but luckily the Electronic Frontier Foundation has released their annual report discussing which Internet companies are worth relying on when it comes down to protecting your privacy. Meghan Lopez is joined by RT's Andrew Blake to discuss this and more.
Demand for physical gold has been robust. U.S. Mint gold coin sales, a reflection of retail investors' demand, stands at 167,500 ounces so far this month. That compares to just 20,000 ounces in April a year ago.
A ravenous appetite for the yellow metal has gone global. Asia, Australia, China and India all report a frenzied rush for gold jewelry and bars from individual investors for gold jewelry. This hearty retail demand provided a cushion for the yellow metal.
Gold has been a foundation asset for centuries, chiefly during times of financial stress. Investors race to the yellow metal in a flight to quality, as a means to protect wealth, a hedge against inflation and as an insurance against extreme movements in other asset classes.
So where does Rogers stand on investing in gold in 2013?
He said this kind of price pull back isn't unusual - in fact, it's a good thing for gold.
That's why Rogers remains committed to gold. Noting an astonishing 12 consecutive years of gains, Rogers said gold was due for a correction.
And Rogers believes gold is destined to go higher over the next decade or so thanks to the global monetary printing presses that continue to spew out dollars at an unprecedented rate.
As for those investing in gold in 2013, he said he's keeping his eye on the yellow metal for a good entry point. There are many ways to invest that could do well this year - as long as investors do their homework.

China has just made several moves against the U.S. dollar, and currency wars with the U.S. have a way of turning into real wars.
China and Australia dump the dollar:Australia’s announcement that it is abandoning the U.S. dollar for trade with China is the latest broadside in the global currency war. Starting April 10, Australia and China will no longer use the U.S. dollar for trade between the two nations. For the first time, Australian businesses will be able to conduct trade in Chinese yuan. No more need for U.S. dollar intermediation. This is a significant announcement and key development for China as it continues its campaign to internationalize the yuan and chip away at the dollar’s role as the world’s reserve currency.

How "THEY" KILLED a nation of PREPPERS. This video does not mean "don't get a job" or "don't go to school". It means you DON'T have to live like the Government Plantation Dwellers that surround you. Free yourself and then free your CHILDREN. All you have to do is STOP living the way THEY want you to live. STOP eating the way THEY want you to eat. STOP acting the way THEY want you to act. STOP wanting what THEY want you to want. STOP believing the bullshit THEY want you to believe. SEEK THE TRUTH and IT SHALL SET YOU FREE.What is so mind boggling is that all of this is being financed by the American people themselves through their own taxes. In other words, the American people are underwriting the destruction of their own freedom and way of life by lavishly financing through federal grants the very social scientists who are undermining our national sovereignty and preparing our children to become the dumbed-down vassals of the new world order. It reminds one of how the Nazis charged their victims train fare to their own doom. One of the interesting insights revealed by these documents is how the social engineers use a deliberately created education "crisis" to move their agenda forward by offering radical reforms that are sold to the public as fixing the crisis — which they never do. The new reforms simply set the stage for the next crisis, which provides the pretext for the next move forward. This is the dialectical process at work, a process our behavioral engineers have learned to use very effectively. Its success depends on the ability of the "change agents" to continually deceive the public which tends to believe anything the experts tell them.
