Over the last 20 years he has been exposing the secret power of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and élite Bilderberg Conferences where the dark forces of corporations, media, banks and royalty conspire to accumulate wealth and power through extortion and war. Tony has spent much of his life too advocating solutions which heal the wealth divide, such as free housing for all and a press which reflects the concerns of ordinary people rather than attempting to lead opinion, sensationalise or dumb-down.

  1. Tony Gosling has done a commendable job in reporting the news and providing a better and more truthful view of our reality.

    • Tony Gosling says:

      Thank you for your support George. You too are am important voice in the United States who refuses to be silenced by the Israel lobby, which is leading us by the nose into World War Three.

    Thank you Tony for doing yeoman’s work in making special shows on December 1st and and getting back on air this Friday .

    Jerusalem is the international historical center of the the three major religions : Judaism , Islam and Christianity imho . I don’t know if this is accurate but when the UN was planning Israel as part of Palestine, Jerusalem would be an international city as a historical and religious center for the the three major religions and peaceful exchange of theology and philosophy . am i right, wrong or somewhat ? anyone feel free to reply and correct me . cheers

    Stephan Lewandowsky thinks he gets his information from multiple sources who vary enough from each other so he can compile a balanced view. I think his opinion on several subjects that where mentioned during the show is evidence of the contrary. He seems te be in a progressive, leftist, globalist bubble. I’m not familiar with all the media he mentioned but following the NYT and WaPo together with their British, Canadian and Australian equivalent doesn’t do much to broden your perspective.
    I would suggest adding RT, PressTV, Newsbud, The Saker and Corbett report and http://nomorefakenews.com/ by John Rappoport.
    Following BBC, Skynews, CCN, MSNBC, Deutsche Welle, Euronews, France24 and RAI for instance still results in a pretty narrow perspective IMO.

    • Tony Gosling says:

      Stephan said he never looks at Breitbart and has no intention of doing so. That’s not wise in my opinion. You can’t critique news outlets you’ve never read because others in your bubble say they’re on good. I think now that was one of the weakest points Stephan made. The other was over Princess Diana’s death. He said most people who believe she was assassinated also believe she faked her own death. I simply don’t believe that. I know many journalists and individuals who believe Diana was murdered but none believe she faked her own death. I’d seriously question that study.

      • Governmind says:

        What I found most interesting in this show’s second hour was you ignoring things Stephan said and just give the guest the ability to contribute what they can. Hear what he had to tell on the subject instead of spiraling off into arguing each others opinion. But all in all I was disappointed by the insight the prof. seemed to have on the media landscape. Must be though to come to a better understanding in his position. As the universities seem to be instrumental in this ongoing social engineering campaign that is unleashed on the public.

        And indeed it stood out how some counter intelligence tactics seem to work the way they are intended. And it has been applied heavily the past years with the whole flat earth BS being pushed hard.
        The only thing that has to be done is question 9/11, 7/7 and the Boston Bombing for instance and in the next sentence pretend to believe the earth is flat. Damage done.
        I still wonder if those people who asked me, in reply to a comment I made, if I also believe the earth is flat, were a result of the counter intelligence ops or they were part of it.

    regarding special December 1 show . Michael Parenti PhD from Yale university talk on youtube . the talk was based in great part, his book To Kill A Nation: The Attack on Yugoslavia


    another video more specific to break up of Yugoslavia . but i disagree with the Iranians being the major source of fundamentalist fighters . imho it was the US who recruited hardline fundamentalist muslim forces into Bosnia.
