Keir Starmer faces renewed scrutiny over allegations he protected Jimmy Savile

6 July 2024 @ 6:29 pm

As the UK’s new, MI6-aligned prime minister takes power, questions are resurfacing about how key files on infamous British pedophile Jimmy Savile disappeared under his watch. In October 2012, a documentary exposed how veteran British media personality Jimmy Savile sexually abused vulnerable, underage girls throughout his lifetime. This led to an eruption of reports of abuse, spanning decades, and official inquiries into multiple institutions to which Savile was linked. Today, the full extent of his crimes, and the total number […] The post Keir Starmer faces renewed scrutiny over allegations he protected Jimmy Savile first appeared on The Grayzone.

Neo-Nazi Azov Battalion profile quietly removed from Stanford extremist group list

29 June 2024 @ 5:54 am

The government-funded research project’s mysterious removal of Azov’s profile was followed by a State Department decision to allow the controversial right-wing unit to receive U.S. military aid. Editor’s note: the following article was originally published by Sam Carlen and Iain Carlos for the Noir newsletter. Stanford University’s Mapping Militants Project (MMP), a U.S. government-funded initiative that conducts research on “violent militant or extremist organizations,” quietly removed their profile on the Azov Battalion early last month.

Widely reported Palestinian father-son ‘rape’ confession contradicted by piles of evidence

27 June 2024 @ 5:17 am

Alleged “confessions” by two Palestinians in Israeli custody filmed seemingly admitting to multiple rapes, murders, and kidnappings on October 7, do not match the events of that day, are contradicted by copious evidence, and were likely coerced through torture. US and British media are running with the stories regardless. On May 23, 2024, Britain’s Daily Mail published what it described as “exclusive” interrogation tapes it had been handed by Israeli intelligence. The Murdoch-owned tabloid claimed the supposed confessions exposed a […] The post Widely reported Palestinian father-son ‘rape’ confession contradicted by piles of evidence first appeared on The Grayzone.

Israeli army probe finds multiple cases of friendly fire on October 7

22 June 2024 @ 12:20 am

The army probe identified numerous examples of Israeli forces targeting Israeli civilians, as well as overreacting or failing to act on October 7. Mainstream media has smeared The Grayzone for exposing Israel’s “Hannibal Directive” scandal months ago. Editor’s note: The Washington Post and Israel’s Haaretz have published numerous scurrilous and error-filled attacks on The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal and other colleagues for helping expose the Israeli military’s deliberate killing of Israeli civilians while held captive by Palestinian militants on October 7.

British meddling in Macedonia backfires, exposing coup machinations

14 June 2024 @ 6:57 pm

Charles Garrett, an apparent British intel agent, teamed up with a local prosecutor to wrongfully indict Macedonian public figures and topple the country’s government. Everywhere Garrett goes in the region, coups seem to follow. Western media demonstrated little interest when the anti-Western VMRO-DPMNE party achieved a landslide victory in Macedonia’s presidential and parliamentary elections this May 8. However, the seismic development could reverse a foreign-orchestrated color revolution sparked almost a decade ago, which put the government in Skopje on a […] The post British meddling in Macedonia backfires, exposing coup machinations first appeared on The Grayzone.

Failing Washington Post attempts to get Grayzone editor jailed with error-filled smear piece

6 June 2024 @ 9:50 pm

Though The Washington Post was forced to retract the first sentence and central premise of its nothingburger ‘expose’ targeting The Grayzone, pro-Israel operatives are using the malicious hit piece to demand a federal investigation. The secret is out. Starting in 2020, for a period of less than a year, and well before ever joining the staff of The Grayzone, journalist Wyatt Reed appeared multiple times on PressTV, an Iranian state-backed international news service. You may have noticed it from Wyatt’s […] The post Failing Washington Post attempts to get Grayzone editor jailed with error-filled smear piece first appeared on The Grayzone.

Robert Fico’s failed assassination raises specter of Western plotting

31 May 2024 @ 4:41 am

Slovak PM Robert Fico’s independent stance earned him the wrath of NATO and the EU. Did a Western-directed plot to remove his troublesome government from office trigger his assassination attempt? On May 15, Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico was almost murdered in broad daylight. While shaking hands with supporters during a public appearance, a gunman shot him twice in the abdomen and once in the shoulder. The attack left him fighting for his life while authorities raced for clues, and […] The post Robert Fico’s failed assassination raises specter of Western plotting first appeared on The Grayzone.
