Meet Amber Lyon: Former Reporter Exposes Massive Censorship at CNN

| |

Top Tier Gear USA

I saw first-hand that these regime claims were lies, and I couldn’t believe CNN was making me put what I knew to be government lies into my reporting.
– Amber Lyon

The Amber Lyon story is just the latest in a series of articles that expose the total Joseph Goebbels like censorship rampant in mainstream media today.  The first one I posted several weeks ago exposed how the NY Times basically just regurgitates whatever government officials tell them, while the other showcased how an NPR reporter covering D.C. had to leave and do her own thing out of frustration.  This is precisely why alternative media sites are taking off.  They provide the only outlets left for genuine journalism.

So back to Amber.  Back in March 2011, CNN sent a four person team to Bahrain to cover the Arab Spring.  Once there, the crew was the subject of extreme intimidation amongst other things, but they were able to record some fantastic footage.  As Glenn Greenwald of the UK’s Guardian writes in his blockbuster article from today:

In the segment, Lyon interviewed activists as they explicitly described their torture at the hands of government forces, while family members recounted their relatives’ abrupt disappearances. She spoke with government officials justifying the imprisonment of activists. And the segment featured harrowing video footage of regime forces shooting unarmed demonstrators, along with the mass arrests of peaceful protesters. In sum, the early 2011 CNN segment on Bahrain presented one of the starkest reports to date of the brutal repression embraced by the US-backed regime.

Despite these accolades, and despite the dangers their own journalists and their sources endured to produce it, CNN International (CNNi) never broadcast the documentary. Even in the face of numerous inquiries and complaints from their own employees inside CNN, it continued to refuse to broadcast the program or even provide any explanation for the decision. To date, this documentary has never aired on CNNi.

Having just returned from Bahrain, Lyon says she “saw first-hand that these regime claims were lies, and I couldn’t believe CNN was making me put what I knew to be government lies into my reporting.”

    The Zionists (pseudo Jews) control all media, Banking and Hollywood. In effect. Everything. This is not a conspiracy theory. It’s simply a fact. Why do you think there is no real news anymore?
    What we are witnessing is the deliberate moral and financial destruction of the Goyim.

      Roger, there is no doubt that what you say is true. And anyone who says otherwise is , to put it mildly, blinkerd to the reality of todays Zionist controlled World.
      From 9/11 to the London bus and tube bombings of 7/7 to all the recent wars in the Middle East,one can see that the Zionist hand is at play. No crime is too heinous, no sacrifice of innocent civilians too great, so the Zionists may continue to dominate the world.

      God help us all.

      • Stephen Schoenfeld

        And the best proof of zionism dominating the world is that if you discuss anything that has an iota of a perception that it is anti-Israel, you would be considered anti-semitic. They have to shut everyone down as they fear the truth may come out.

    • Roger, you’re right. 6 corporations run all the media in America, and zionists have been identified by our Lord as the “synagogue of satan.”

          Who said anything about Jews being bad?

          They were railing against Zionists. The two are as different, in the minds of those who see Zionism as a problem, as the local church and the Westboro Baptist Church.

          All Jews are not Zionists. All Zionists are not Jews. They are a distinct set of people, who happen to have some overlap. Being against one group, because you happen to believe their ideology on one particular subject is destructive, does not equate to being against another, completely different group of people, for … some reason.

      Why the Modern Jews Are Not God’s Chosen People

      World history reveals a remarkable story in which one group of people assumed the identity of another. The vast majority of people who are today called Jews are not, in terms of strict definition of the term, Jews at all.

      The term “Jew,” actually a later comer to the Old Testament, originally meant one who can genuinely claim genetic descent from Judah, one of the twelve sons of Jacob. It is from the Hebrew and “Yhudi,” meaning “of Judah.”

      The true people of Judah were a numerous part of the ancient, twelve-tribed Israelites. In time, the Israelites divided into two kingdoms. The southern one was called the “Kingdom of Judah,” and the region it occupied, “Judea.” All of its inhabitants, of whatever tribe, were often called Judeans, and in time “Jews.” As time passed, the Northern Kingdom was taken into captivity and scattered to the north and west (721 B.C.).

      The Kingdom of Judah was later taken to Babylon (586 B.C.), where many stayed. Seventy years later a remnant returned, and gradually, with much struggle, regained its status of nationhood. Unfortunately, the religion they returned with had picked up many pagan elements while in Babylon, and this gradually evolved into a system of oral teachings that Scripture condemns as the tradition of the elders. (Matthew 15:2-3)

      At this juncture in history, an unusual development occurred that muddled the meaning of the words Judah, Judean, and Jew. In the second century before Messiah, a dynamic priest-king of Judah, John Hyrcanus of the Hasmonean dynasty, conquered the people directly to the south of Judah, the Edomites.

      The Edomites (or Idumeans) were descended from Esau. Jacob/Israel’s twin brother (Genesis 36:8). Esau had married a woman of a Hittite family, thus destroying forever the pure genetic pedigree of his descendants. For this, Esau essentially was disinherited (his mother saw the need for this before his father; Genesis 26:34; 27:46). These folks had been perennial enemies of both Israel and Judah since ancient times.

      After thoroughly subjugating them, Hyrcanus gave the Edomites the choice of either death or conversion to the religion, language, and culture of Judah. This proved to be a catastrophic decision for the people of Judah, and a choice which Hyrcanus should have known as forbidden in Old Testament law (Deuteronomy 7:1-5; Leviticus 20:24, Joshua 23:12-13; Ezra 9:1-4; Nehemiah 13:23-30). But not surprisingly, most chose conversion.

      The Jewish (truly of Judah) historian Josephus described this event: “Hyrcanus took also Dora and Marissa, cities of Idumea, and subdued all the Idumeans; and permitted them to stay in that country; if they would circumcise their genitals, and make use of the laws of the Jews; and they were so desirous of living in the land of their forefathers, that they submitted to the use of circumcision, and of the rest of the Jewish ways of living; at which time this therefore befell them, that they were hereafter no other than Jews.” (Jewish antiquities, Book 13, 9:1)

      The marginal note in Josephus’ works add this commentary, quoting Ammonius, a writer from 129 A.D.; “…the Idumeans were not Jews from the beginning…but being afterward subdued to buy the Jews.” After editorial comment regarding Josephus’ work adds emphasis: “This account of the Idumeans admitting circumcision, and the entire Jewish law, from this time, or the days of Hyrcanus, is confirmed by their entire history afterward.”

      The significance of the Edomite population merging with the Jews is often overlooked. But it is not really any secret. Many modern Biblical scholars admit that the historic event did, indeed, occur. For example: “But during the warlike rule of the Maccabees (Hasmonean dynasty of the Jews) they were again completely subdued and even forced to conform to Jewish laws and rites and submit to the government of Jewish perfect. The Edomites were then incorporated into the Jewish nation, and the whole providence was often termed by Greek and Roman writers ‘Idumea’…From this time, the Edomites as a separate people disappear from the pages of history.” (The New Unger’s Bible Dictionary, p. 333)

      There is Edom [Esau is called Edom in Genesis 36:8]. And Edom is in ‘Modern Jewry’ Jewish Encyclopedia, 1925 edition, Vol. 5, p. 41. Even the encyclopedia on your shelf may inform you of these events, if one is sharp enough to understand the significance: “The Hasmonean dynasty conquered the Idumeans in the 100’s B.C., and converted them to Judaism.” (World Book Encyclopedia, 1967, Vol. 6, p. 55)

      Over the next century as imperial Rome cast its long shadow over the Middle East, these Edomites or Idumeans were gradually absorbed into Jewish society. Many of them, such as Herod, achieved high status, working their way into the priestly and aristocratic classes. Those who leveraged their way into the priestly professions had a strong proclivity for the pagan oral teachings (traditions of the elders) brought back from Babylon.

      Dominance in the two mainstream religious parties, the Pharisees and Sadducees, was soon theirs to enjoy and capitalize upon.
      This was the situation when Messiah lived and walked the lovely hill country of Galilee and Judea. There were two groups of people living check by cheek with each other in the land of Judea. They spoke the same language, practiced the same oppressive yoke of Roman rule, and were together in our time called Jews.

      In 70 A.D., the city of Jerusalem and the Kingdom of Judah was utterly shattered by the Romans. Many survivors were scattered throughout the Roman world, finding refuge where they could. The Edomite element of these Jews, who had utterly rejected Messiah, lodged themselves in various enclaves in the Roman Empire including the great city of Byzantium (Constantinople). During the centuries that followed, these people continued to develop and propagate their highly altered form of the ancient Hebrew faith in which the Biblical aspects were almost completely submerged in layers of pagan philosophy and rules. It was during this era that their oral tradition was codified into a written textual form called the Talmud. It has been the touchstone of the religion of Judaism for many centuries.

      Rabbi Stephen Wise, one of the main Jewish leaders in the United States a few years ago, stated that when the Jews returned to Jerusalem from Babylon (with the True Israelites), about 536 B.C., they brought with them the teachings which became known as the Babylonian Talmud. “This was the end of Hebraism, and the beginning of Judaism,” the learned Rabbi stated.

      Judaism quite possibly would have expired in the tumult of the early Medieval Period had it not been for a single titanic evangelistic coup. In approximately 740 A.D., an entire empire was forcibly converted to Judaism by the decree of its emperor. This was the Khazarian Empire, centered in modern day Ukraine, comprised of a people of mixed Russian, Eastern Europe, and Western Mongolian descent. The Khaszarians took to their new faith like ducks to water. Even after their empire dissolved, never to rise again, they retained tenaciously the precepts of Judaism. In time these proselytes to Judaism gradually made their way in Eastern Europe. By the time the Medieval Period closed, they no longer considered themselves Khazarians, but Jews, for it was the religion of Judaism that formed the backbone of their subculture.

      Arthur Koestler, a modern Jew and a prize winning author, summarizes these developments in his best selling book, The Thirteenth Tribe: “Thus the Judaization of the Khazars was a gradual process which, triggered off by political expediency, slowly penetrated into the deeper strata of their minds and eventually produced the Messianism of their period of decline. Their religious commitment survived the collapse of their state, and persisted, as we shall see, in the Khazar-Jewish settlements of Russia and Poland.” (The Thirteenth Tribe, p. 74)

      Other sources document this important historical event: “The Jews, expelled from Constantinople, sought a home amongst them (Khazars), developed the Khazar trade, and contended with Mohammedans and Christians for the theological allegiance of the pagan people. The dynasty accepted Judaism (740 A.D.).” (Encyclopedia Britannica, 1911, Vol. 15-16, p. 775)

      It is common knowledge that as of a century ago, most Jews in the world were found in Eastern Europe, with the highest percentage concentrated in Poland. How did they get there? A more clear picture has emerged than what was heretofore available. Koestler continues: “…the cumulative evidence makes one included to agree with the consensus of Polish historians that ‘in earlier times the main bulk originated form the Khazar country’; and that, accordingly, the Khazar contribution to the genetic make-up of the Jews must be substantial and in all likelihood, dominant.” (The Thirteenth Tribe, p. 180)

      What is most important to remember abut these Khazarian converts to Judaism is this: they have no genetic link to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob/Israel, Judah or any other Hebrew. Furthermore, the majority of the Jews of today are descended from this Khazarian branch.

      Although modern Jews purport the idea that they are descended from ancient Judah, they are lying. Twice in the book of Revelation, the followers of Messiah are informed that there exists a group of people who claim to be Judean, but are not: “…and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” (Revelation 2:9; 3:9)

      For those who wish to be honest with the totality of Scripture, there is no mistake; somewhere on this emerald blue planet of ours, there is a group of people who claim to be Judean, who are actually not. Are they hard to find? Indeed, no. The twentieth century has seem them migrate from Poland and Eastern Europe to places like New York City and the modern nation of Israel (the United States of America).
      Even honest scientific inquiry reveals the truth. Spanish geneticist Professor Antionio Amaiz-Villena recently headed a team of researchers and published a paper entitled “The Origins of Palestinians and their Genetic Relatedness with other Mediterranean Populations.”

      After conducing detailed DNA studies, the report state: “Jews and Palestinians in the middle East share a very similar gene pool and must be considered closely related and not genetically separate.” (The Observer, November 25, 2001)

      This is consistent with the fact that modern Jews are either descended from the Khazarians, who were of a mixed background, or from the ancient Edomites. In both cases, they are genetically related to the ancient Hittites, Jebusites, Canaanites, Amorites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Kenites, Edomites; all perennial enemies of the Israelites.

      Also, it must be remembered that the Edomites, and the Canaanite nations were blood drinkers, flesh heaters, and so were the Khazars, thus the tradition of Ritual Murder was carried forth from one group of Jews to those Khazars who chose Judaism as their religion.

      Thus we have the Messiah saying: “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (John 8:44)

      Messiah then tells the Jews they are not of God that they are not His children and not of God. “He that is of God heareth God’s words: YE (Jews) THEREFORE HEAR THEM NOT, BECAUSE YE (Jews) ARE NOT OF GOD.” (John 8:47)

      Messiah is telling the Jews that they do not believe Him because they are a perverse, generation of vipers, the children of the devil, and that they are not of His sheep. And who are His sheep? It is the Israelites of course.

      “Messiah answered them, I TOLD YOU, AND YE (Jews) BELIEVED NOT: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. But YE (Jews) BELIEVE NOT, BECAUSE YE (Jews) ARE NOT OF MY SHEEP, as I said unto you (Jews).” (John 10:25-26)

      Paul now testifies that they are a perverse race: “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.” Philippians 2:16)

      Strong’s #Untoward: Strong’s #4646 skolios (skol‑ee‑os’); from the base of NT:4628; warped, i.e. winding; figuratively, perverse: KJV ‑ crooked, froward, untoward. (Biblesoft’s New Exhaustive Strong’s Numbers and Concordance with Expanded Greek‑Hebrew Dictionary. Copyright (c) 1994, Biblesoft and International Bible Translators, Inc.)

      “And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, SAVE YOURSELVES FROM THIS UNTOWARD GENERATION.” (Acts 2:40)

      John also tells us in 1 John that the Jews are the children of the devil.
      “In this the children of God are manifest, and THE CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God.” (1 John 3:10)

      In John 8:47 we find: “He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.”

      Many people say that the words of Messiah was for all men everywhere, but that is simply not true, and is the lying, deceiving, statements of perverse, traitorous, false teachers, known to us as the JudeoChristian clergy. Messiah only came to the House of Israel, and the Messiah only taught in parables, so that the Jews would not know what He was saying. For it is obvious from a reading of the parable of the tares and the wheat; when He says:

      “And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: THAT SEEING THEY MAY SEE, AND NOT PERCEIVE; AND HEARING THEY MAY HEAR, AND NOT UNDERSTAND; LEST AT ANY TIME THEY SHOULD BE CONVERTED, AND THEIR SINS SHOULD BE FORGIVEN THEM
      (Mark 4:11-12)

      One could go on for several pages, but these should suffice to prove that the Jews are the most evil and perverse people that have ever existed on earth, and that there is no doubt they are the descendants of their father the devil as Messiah said.

    I’m not surprised at all. I was on vacation in Europe in the mid 90’s and I remember hearing on CNN that “President Bush felt ill in Greece” and that he “had to leave immediately.” The fact of the matter is that he was NOT PERMITTED to enter the embassy office in the country he was visiting. Did I mention that the officers stood outside of the building with GUNS DRAWN at him? That’s one hell of a tummy ache! Talk about sh****ng bricks! 🙂

      I (ret. Lt. Col.) was there in Greece with the Air Force (89th Air wing). We were sent as an advanced team for Air Force 1. I went to the embassy for forward meetings between Secret Service and local officials. I didn’t see any of the things you are saying, nor were there any threats mentioned in the briefings. We were at the Embassy when the news came in that Pres. Bush was ill. We debarked the next day. I’m sure you were mistaken OR just a troll and liar.

    CNN is also interfering in the electoral process. When Gary Johnson was polling higher than Santorum and Huntsman and on par with Cain in 2011, they dropped him from their polls then excluded him. And CNN has systematically excluded Gary Johnson from their polls, debates and electoral coverage.

Exvept for nature, front line, history detectives,pawn stars and pickers all other shows are reruns. I do not waste time with the news, mostly about kids or the conventions.
    I had more choice and better programs in the 60s and 70s with only 3 channels. Guess china will buy jersy shore. If I want to watch snookie I can look at the austrialan heiress online who thinks miners should work for $2.00.

    and I could not get a response from the small town in Pa. though I called ad naseum and could not get a return from the Sheriff’s office. I had hard evidence; even the coroner questioned the cause of death and talked with me. I decided it was too expensive and too emotionally and mentally detrimental to persue a wrongful death lawsuit, but I know how it is to get away with murder if a small town doesn’t want or can’t be involved.

    Although I’m not up with USA events other than what I read in the media, online etc, I’m surprised that there is so much resentment of Jews/Zionists. It seems to be that throughout history Jews have been blamed for everything, largely because they are smart, productive and achieve what others don’t.

    A point that is unknown or possibly missed is that the Jewish Elite obviously have an “arrangement” with the Catholic Elite. Why would I say this. First, the Christian religion was probably a creation by a small group of Messianic Jews at a time when there was a race on to see which group could create a “Savior” first. The Romans muscled in and after using propaganda against “Christians” turned it all around in 325 and made it the default religion with penalty of death for unbelievers. After claiming all the dogma for themselves they set about killing off the pagans who were responsible for most of the mythology in the first place. But, the interesting thing that I discovered is that Amschel Moses Bauer (the patriarch of the soon to be renamed “Red shields or Rothschild’s) was a Knight of Malta, yes a Catholic order sworn to protect the Church and Pope. So how can a lowly money-lending Jew be a KoM? Facts show up the the Jewish people have been betrayed by their own Elite, just the same as everyone else. However, the bullshit and propaganda has corrupted them into believing the Goys are the enemy. IPOF it was the Zionist hiding in Switzerland and America that betrayed the German Jews and signed their fate to Nazism. This does not excuse Hitler or anyone else, but prior to WWI German Jews had an honored place in society and held positions of high rank. Then the bankers (Warburgs, etc) went in and destroyed Germany after the War. Later in the very early 1930 the Zionist scum put out information to blame the Jews for Germany’s down fall. They basically betrayed themselves. However, as usual it was the People who paid the price NOT the Elite who were hiding. Maybe most Jews are Khazar’s and even the word “Jew” means a citizen of Judea, just like we say “Brit” for British. It does not mean race or religion. For me there has to be a secret agreement and relationship between Elite Jews and the Vatican.
