Ben is a true patriot, and genuine journalist

I hope his example inspires a new wave of truth in reporting nationwide, an example for up and coming journalists, reporters, bloggers and such to the point where MSM can no longer spew their government propaganda without being called out.

Do You Want to Support Ben Swann and Keep Him on the Air?

A message to everyone who supports Ben Swann (he's a hero of mine): Don't just watch his videos on YouTube. The advertising money will go to some random person.

Instead go straight to the source! The link below links directly to the reality check main website on Fox 19. That way the ad money goes directly to his station, and the owners get a MUCH better idea about just how many people watch him (due to the large number of website hits)!


You can also sign up for the email list so that they send you an email every time there is a new reality check. This way, if the station faces increasing pressure to cancel his show, they will be making enough extra money from ad revenue that they will reconsider.

If you really want to support Ben Swann, please do it this way!

The overall point though is

The overall point though is true. Our wars and the strategies we use are insane. Our so-called "war vision" is so myopic, we just kill kill kill and never realize what are actions will do decades from now.

The way to end the wars, in my opinion, is to illustrate how stupid and unnecessary they are, which Ben's done well here. The only people it benefits are the ones selling weapons and drilling for oil.

Isn't this common

Isn't this common knowledge?

Everyone knows the US created and funded the Mujahideen that turned into Al Qaeda. Some know that it was the US and Zbigniew who baited the Soviets into invading Afghanistan in hopes of giving them their own costly Vietnam war. But he did it because he hated the Soviet Union.

And it's common to work with the "enemy of your enemy" in war situations. None of this is surprising.

But all of this doesn't mean that the US created Al Qaeda to be terrorists, or that they somehow are directing terrorist attacks.

Zbigniew Brzezinski

The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities.’

- Zbigniew Brzezinski, Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, 1970

Pat Kraemer

I agree, this is common knowledge...

... but the creation of the Mujaheddin in Afghanistan was not just because Brzezinski "hated Soviets". You, too, would hate them if they occupied your country within the "Soviet Bloc" (1945-1989), and killed your best people by millions.

There was never any "Soviet bloc" before 1945 - this "solution" left half of Europe to remain occupied by one country that initiated the WW2 together with Hitler - Stalin's Russia.

The Soviet block was created in 1945 by the USA and Great Britain (the usual suspects) and was NOT ended by Reagan and Gorbachow. It took many bloody uprisings by the people of Hungary, Poland and Czech Republic, thousand jailed and tortured over those years.

It eventually succeeded in overturning that horrid historical plot called Soviet Bloc because the WORKERS, STUDENTS, INTELLECTUALS and everybody else in Poland FINALLY joined together in SOLIDARITY. (btw SOLIDARITY unions were organized locally by geography, not by trade. Just a hint). Considering their history, these were NOT Velvet Revolutions. There are no Velvet revolutions.

It also helped in 1989 to have the cunning of Zbigniew Brzezinski in the USA as well as the Polish Pope with the Vatican power.

Why was the Soviet bloc created in the first place - instead of the Allies pressing East and subjugating the WW2 monger Stalin? The Iron Wall prevented formation of a strong Central Europe and provided a base for all the profits from the years of Cold War. American propaganda made all the people in the Soviet bloc communists, while the truth was very far from it: we loved you, Americans!. We were oppressed by the Soviet communists (I grew up under that regime). There were Russian bases all over Poland I i was forced to learn Russian starting 5th grade. We learned the real anti-Russian history of Poland after school.

The question to Ben is, then: Who exactly later made these anti-Soviet Mujaheddin into Al Qaeda and why?

Ron Paul ... forever.


I am worried for him! We should all call and write to him and encourage him to get protection or a body guard. With all the topics he has been telling the truth about, I am sure that the powers that be will start to see him as a threat.



How is Ben Swann able to tell the truth on main stream media?

Why haven't they fired him?

How? Here's how:

Because his TV station is NOT owned and manipulated by the Big (Lie) Media Corps!

Fox 19 is owned by Raycom, which is an Employee owned company.
Here's the link:

That's why Ben's reports are allowed to be broadcast without the restraint imposed by the other Corporate Media owned entities.

He refers to this in the Tracy Diaz interview:

This is important!

Thanks, Allegory!

I've been curious about this for a while.

War is a racket.

We are the racketeers.

Interesting reading.

I'm really big on reading all the UK and NZ SAS material I can get my hands on, and there's one book called 'The Shooting Gallery' by Gaz Hunter. He writes about a period where he left the SAS, and was contracted by a UK security firm to bring in Stinger Missiles and gold for the Mujihadeen, and help train two main Stinger Teams. He was also directly involved in some of the smaller fights that happened between the Soviets and the Mujihadeen he'd trained.

Andy McNab also did something similar I believe, I think he wrote about it in 'Sabre Squadron' .From memory he was part of a small team that originally started training militant groups in the use of the UK Blowpipe system, somewhere in the UK. Eventually he went on to holding training with a small group of militants in the Middle East on the Stinger, and infantry command/tactics. I'm pretty sure it was McNab that said that one of them was Bin Laden.

I'd have to go through the books to confirm the above, I'm writing from memory on books I read a couple of years ago, but it's riveting reading if you're into war literature or want to know a little about what actually happened during the Soviet/Afghanistan war. There are likely also books written by Americans who were involved, but I haven't come across any.

Ben is really knocking them

Ben is really knocking them out of the park these days.
Great job!

I hope

Ben, I hope you have an underground bunker... they're after you.

Love you Ben!

Thanks for having the courage to tell it like it is!


So does this mean we can indefinitely detain Obama and Congress since they are supporting Terrorists?

Article Three of the United States Constitution

Section 3 defines treason and its punishment.

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.

"I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."


There is no duration defined in the Oath

That would be amazing

If somebody brought those charges gainst them or sued them for it. It would be impossible to disprove.

Thank you, Press Secretary Swann!!

I salute your diligence in providing truth for the people every episode! THIS is real Journalism!

Having people like this, along with President Ron Paul, on the side of Liberty is why WE ARE WINNING THIS FIGHT!!

No one stands a chance...

If they go up against Ben Swann or Dr.Paul in a debate.

I've said this before, Ron Paul is a world hero and one of the strongest messengers we have out there and Ben Swann has grown to be one of the most accurate, fair, truthful and very powerful voices of liberty. Another hero in the making in my very honest opinion.

This was a very strong Reality Check that clearly points out the fallacy that is the powers-that-shouldn't-be's foreign agenda/policy.

Much love for Ben and Dr.Paul, let's keep up the great work spreading the message of liberty my friends!

The Iraqi Al-Qaeda member who gave the interview was confirming Glenn Beck and Jerome Corsi assessment that NWO is against Israel.

Big bump

Um... OMG! OM F' G!!! Wow! WowWowWoweeeee!

can't believe my eyes, my ears, my... everything!

cannot believe this was aired, live on the TeeVee; local or not, on FakeNews, of all places!!!

Ben is gonna go down in history as THE most honest, bravest journalist to have ever informed the citizenry, in the 21st Century.

I thought that was your own take on his headline, but lo and behold, that's word for word, Ben's own headline!

First, he reports on the actual founding of the Fed at Jekyll Island, Georgia, now, emphatically, under no uncertain terms, reports the truth that CIA created Al-CIA-duh!

give me an hour, as I attempt to pick up my mandible off the floor... I know it's somewhere.

Good one

Keep up the good work.

most powerful Reality Check yet.

if sharing this, include this link i found on DP just yesterday. its a good one.

"Or maybe we're just shilling for the truth."

That's gold, Jerry. GOLD!


How does this guy stay on the air??
