What if ISIS isn’t what it appears to be?

Update: I wrote this post before a Defense Intelligence Agency document was leaked showing that a “Salafist Principality” (ie, an Islamic State) on the border of Syria and Iraq is “exactly what we want” as an excuse to unseat Assad. This at least validates the fact that the West’s interest in Syria is to oust Assad not stem the tide of terrorism. I go one step further, however, and argue that this leak was a limited hangout the purpose of which was to counter rumors that we didn’t just allow the Islamic State to emerge, we created it! The links below support my argument.

Original Post: Here is a quick and dirty list of some articles I came across that cast doubt on the official narrative concerning ISIS. Many of these sources are not US mainstream media. If you are skeptical of any source that is not US MSM, I ask only this: never dismiss, always refute. That is, if you don’t want to believe it because you don’t know the source, that’s fine, but don’t just dismiss it, actually look at the story and evaluate the evidence and argue why it’s not convincing. Similarly, when faced with stories from the US MSM, don’t just accept them or give them the benefit of the doubt, evaluate them critically, look at the evidence and likewise argue why it is convincing. It takes a little extra time, but very quickly you will hone some serious “truth-dar” and you will be able to cull the plausible from the implausible in no time at all.

Here’s an opportunity to take this approach out for a spin. I haven’t gone over these articles with a fine-tooth comb, so maybe you can help me sort them out and separate the plausible from the implausible, and at the same time discover your inner truthdar! (I hope it goes without saying that I don’t have a position on these sites’ general conclusions on anything, I’m just interested in these specific reports, and even more narrowly, whether their facts warrant further investigation or not.)

FoxNews reports video of ISIS beheading Copts faked

http://themonicaperezshow.com/2015/02/21/foxnews-reports-isis-video-of-beheading-copts-faked/

After reading this article, I’m seriously considering that the quality of the ISIS videos is deliberately poor to see how far people will go to believe the mainstream media over the evidence of their own eyes. On a recent show on this topic, I had a caller absolutely insist that this video was 100% real and depicted 21 Christian beheadings despite this report! It reminds me of the War of the Worlds hoax by Orson Wells – that became the subject of a very informative globalist study of how people would react to reports of an alien invasion. I’m thinking they are getting very valuable psychological information based on how successful this campaign has been.

UPDATE: Another disturbing implication about this story involves the pope. Pope Francis offered mass for these people according to this February 17, 2015, article on FoxNews.com. My concern is this: why does the pope think this is real? The Vatican is its own country with a worldwide intelligence network and associations that include the highest ranking intelligence agents in the US. Either Pope Francis is being duped by his own people, they are being duped by us (which I do not consider plausible given the maturity and sophistication of their intelligence apparatus), or someone in the Vatican is lying on purpose.

    Monica,
    Your recent show was fantastic!!! As always!! I agree with your comments 1000%. These people running the West today are pure evil, or at the very least, complicit. And notice I wrote ‘West’, as all of it, not just the U.S., is effectively captured at this point. I am attaching below the link for a most excellent video clip on ISIS that I just found. It will support and further amplify your thoughts. This video, and others like it must be seen by the masses of ‘low information voters’ out there. If we can wake them up and have them remove the scales from their eyes, things can change!

      THE “FORMER” USA IS NO LONGER, FOR YEARS NOW OUR ELITE, HAS BEEN FORMULATING A NEO-NAZI ISLAMIC REGIME, AND THEY HAVE BEEN KEEPING IT SECRETLY HIDDEN WITHIN VARIOUS ORGANIZATIONS. THE COUNTLESS PINTS OF BLOOD THAT HAS BEEN TAKEN DUE TO EVIL AND CORRUPTION IS BEYOND ANY CLASSIFICATION OF BEING CRIMINAL, IN FACT IT NEEDS A BRAND NEW TERMINOLOGY. CONTRACTORS IN THESE BATTLES, POLICE CONFLICTS, AND WAR HAVE PROFITED, DUE TO THE DETAILS OF GOVERNMENTS. PERHAPS IN OUR RECENT MOMENTS WE CAN DETERMINE THAT McCAIN IS SECRETLY THE VICE PRESIDENT AND THAT JOE BIDEN IS THE SPONSOR. ISIS, TALLIBAN, ECT…IS A “CREATION” THAT HAS ORGINATED FROM SOMETHING AND SOMEWHERE, AND ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS FOLLOW THE MONEY.

        futuret,
        I very much appreciated your linked article…in fact I had read it previously and was impressed. I can’t fully buy into your conclustion that ‘our elite, has been formulating a neo-nazi islamic regime’ to control all this. But they certainly have created a horrible mess and use the ‘Islamic Bogeyman’ ad nauseum to continually scare us so we prostrate ourselves to their control and every whim.

    Thank you Monica for all you do. A very good friend of mine, threatened to leave the pizza place ,where we like to share a beer together ,when I asked him if he thought the Jordanian pilot was burned . Bob Woodward said he reports the most verifiable information available .Your work helps me . I will print this work of yours today and give my friends a copy, so they may understand why I am such a huge fan of yours.

    I’d like to share one of my thoughts on the bigger picture that came out of a discussion of this post on Facebook today:
    I’m leaning toward thinking that what’s really going on here is that there is a great deal of conflict in these countries (due almost entirely to the actions of the US and its allies, btw). Syria, Iraq, Libya are all having real, violent struggles for control. All this violence, all the deaths – including attacks from our allies Jordan and Egypt – are real, but our government is putting a universal “Islamic State” face on it – even recruiting “Islamic State soldiers” with dollars from the US – to justify disregarding the sovereignty of the countries whose secular Arab leaders we wanted to undermine. Some of the acts of violence are from these mercenaries, others aren’t. The links in the article above offer evidence for these pieces of the puzzle. The article that sparked this line of thinking for me was the one where the Libyans said that the hotel attack widely reported by Western media as ISIS wasn’t ISIS but just part of this struggle for power between Libyan factions. Next thing you see (today’s WSJ) – Egypt used this (false?) ISIS report to justify attacking Libya. Why? I don’t believe it’s to “degrade ISIS” but to tip the scales in Libya for political purposes.
