Yep, I had assumed the facebook and twitter images were identical until BestinShow pointed it out. I had seen the facebook one first, or I might have noticed it, maybe not though lol.

Nice catch on that little detail of not being on both pictures. Curious.


Ive been playing with the picture and while I can get it zoomed in more it just gets a lot more distorted as well, so I don't think it will really help up with anything. Although, in my fiddling of it, there are times it has an appearance of being a crown. (shoulder shrug). Could just be me seeing it like that though. Really just too small to do anything with really. At least with what I have to work with

Are you REALLY lambasting one of the few journalists who understands what his job description is supposed to be about, for attention whoring? Really? Snarl, you know better than this. The man examines the facts, holds truth before profit. This is something I would expect you would support.

I'm not going to deny a single word in your response. But, you know me well enough to know I could write an entire dissertation on the subject if I thought it would be 'worth' my time.


Well you did state your opinion, were just asking what in particular makes you have such a harsh opinion of Swann?

Did he report some things you disagree with ?

He controls the narrative ... all too well. He's like watching an infomercial. As long as you don't lose your awareness of those two aspects of his reporting, you might avoid being brainwashed.

His early affiliation with RT causes me alarm. What's worse ... is how few people (even the well informed @ ATS) seem to be aware of that. Where exactly is he gleaning the material to support his positions of Truth??

Pretty hard stain to wash out if you ask me. Go back through that thread. Look between the lines. Ask yourself the hard questions.

After you've done your own thorough review, ask yourself this question: Is Swann's reporting biased? Then go and watch one of his infomercials again. You'll see what I'm saying ... and you'll have learned something I was taught to do for myself as an Intelligence Analyst.

The way I approach any "News" is to assume that it is "baised". But a good report will atleast give me a different viewpoint or piece to the puzzle so that I can see a better picture.

Six Principles of Sun Tzu & the Art of Business ...

Oh, I just noticed on the twitter account. He posted it twice in a row, the first one did not have that symbol in it, the second one did. So it seems to be something he intentionally added as an after thought. Might explain the low resolution of it compared to the rest of it.

the newer post is also the one where he uses Tzuday, feb 1. In the original tweet, he just says Feb 1.

Not sure what it means, but as you said, he added the logo and the Tzuday for a reason....

Looks like the reference to Sun Tzu is probably right. If you look at his intagram it included an extra sentence.



The Sun will rise and everything is going to be fine.


The Sun in this case might be to inforce the Sun Tzu connection.

Could it be that? Hmmmmm. Is that what bestinShow meant by rebel alliance? Don't smack me, not a star wars fan lol.


Looks like a pixelated eye to me.

Had me confused at first as well. My guess is "for now"

Me too. Suggests he's not shutting it down because it could resume later.

Maybe there's ongoing negotiations?

And the tiny eye.. Maybe a canary or indication he's being monitored. ?

i would assume it means for now. but i am an old man who is not up on the lingo, so dont take my word for it.

i respect what Swann does, and i am curious to see what happens. Bias and viewpoints are in EVERYTHING! let the reader or viewer make up their own mind and connections....

How the the hell do some people get 50 stars while everyone else gets no more than 5?



Probably because they stick to the content, rather than worrying about Stars and categorizing other members...

You should give it a try.

Ben Swann knew Pizzagate was going too far, yet he did it anyways. He was aware of the risk.
In fact I believe he wanted to prod the unknowable darkness out there to see if shot back.
Sounds like he found what he was looking for.

I am surprised his local affiliate took him back. I suppose his contract either had a clause where he could do whatever he wanted or they looked at his videos before publishing and ok'd them.

I have this feeling in my gut that Swann is connected to the silent coup that Dr. Pieczenik described. A rebel alliance would be an apt description of what is going on behind the scenes. I don't think that Ben Swann would have touched the pizza story or the Isis origins piece if he didn't feel like someone had his back. I think things could be getting very interesting shortly!
