You may know me for my journalism from Syria, but I've lived in and reported from many more countries, including Palestine (3 years in Gaza), Venezuela, Donbass, and currently Russia.This year will see me travelling less, writing more.

Thank you for supporting my journalism!

I'm very grateful to my supporters, support which has enabled me to report from numerous countries/regions over the years.

I began in occupied Palestine, in 2007, with no support and only the determination to see with my own eyes how Palestinians are oppressed. Going to and spending 8 months in the West Bank of occupied Palestine (https://opt2007.wordpress.com/category/my-entries-from-occupied-palestine-apr-dec-2007/ ) and inevitably living in Gaza for several years (https://ingaza.wordpress.com/interviews-and-talks-on-palestine/interviews/ ) was the beginning of my political awakening.

De-arresting a Bil'in villager, pursued by Israel in its attempt to quash popular resistance. On this occasion, I had a pile of people on top of me, was kicked in the head by an Israeli soldier, and had tear gas chucked at the pile of us.

Outing MSM lies

Most of you are here because you're aware the independent journalism doesn't pay. To the contrary, we put more into actually going to the place than we could ever make from one, two, ten articles.

Because of my supporters, I've been able to go to contested places like Douma, Syria, and share the Syrian side of the story:

Taking Unpopular Positions

Although I from the beginning supported Syria's sovereign right to fight terrorism and restore peace to the country, because I was living in Gaza until March 2013, I wasn't able to go to Syria until after that, April 2014.

Since then, I have been 13 more times, including extended stays, and visiting most of the key places war propagandists outside of Syria have written about.

Taking the position I have has gotten me a lot of flack, smears, accusations, as I'm sure most here will be aware of.

But I did, we do, because standing with Syria against vulture media and the NATO-Israeli-Gulf-Turkish alliance is the right thing to do.

‘There has just been non-stop idiocracy happening. We're living in a comedy goldmine right now’ – YouTube comic Joey B Toonz

 I spoke with comedian and social commentator, Joey B, on his (extremely funny) comedic work exposing the narcissism so prevalent on social media platforms nowadays, and the censorship he faces for doing so.

"I find that any time any of my content gets removed, I always find that same content on multiple channels, major channels, whether news organizations or big just big Youtube channels. And the only difference between my videos and their videos is my commentary. So apparently they don't like what I'm saying. 

Every platform, I'm on the risk of deletion. Cause I'm such a menace to society, apparently. And all I'm doing, I'm basically trying to highlight the idiocracy of what going on in the world right now, saying some of the stuff that we accept as normal is the problem."

"What if you worked at a one hour photo place in the '90s and you got a roll of film in, and you're in the darkroom and you're developing the film and you see it's all some person's face making duck lips. You would think this was sent over by a psychiatric ward for review or something. 

And now its on everybody's camera roll. It's common. Photos of themselves in the mirror with the toilet behind. It's disgusting. And nobody says anything about it. Then me, I'm the guy that's shouting in the sky about it and I get banned for it. I'm the problem, somehow."

We also discuss the blind, unquestioning, obedience of many these days, and the nonsensical "health" measures they obey (while politicians do the opposite). 

As bizarre as some of the things discussed are, this was a really enjoyable, and disturbingly insightful, conversation.

My latest oped on the incessant fear porn over all things Covid the past year and  half.

on RT.com

"Over the past year and a half, hysterical media reporting on matters Covid-19 has reduced some people to a fearful state of unquestioning compliance – including a great number of otherwise critically-thinking journalists. 
With screaming headlines in bold and large font such as, ‘Will this nightmare ever end?’ and ‘Mutant virus skyrockets…’ and ‘Fear grows across the country: VIRUS PANIC’, and ‘Coronavirus horror: Social media footage shows infected Wuhan residents 'act like zombies’, it is no wonder many people are in a state of panic.
In times when many are suffering mentally and physically under unnecessary and prolonged lockdowns, the incessant fear porn is causing excessive anxiety, which in turn will affect the health & mental well-being of some, if not many."

I spoke yesterday with journalist & geopolitical analyst Marwa Osman on the criminal Israeli bombings of Syria yet again two nights ago, violating Lebanese airspace again to do so. 

Marwa noted that Israel put at risk the lives of two civilian airplanes in Lebanese & Syrian airspace, particularly the 130 civilians and flight crew on a flight coming from Abu Dhabi to Beirut when Israel attacked Syria. She also described the psychological terrorism Israel daily commits against Lebanese (and Palestinians in Gaza) with their violations of Lebanese (and Gazan) airspace with warplanes and drones, as well as Israeli bombings of Lebanon, including very near her home in the south. 

Marwa detailed the electricity, fuel & financial crisis in Lebanon and how that came about, as well as how the corrupt oligarchy in power are strangling Lebanese civilians financially and in every way imaginable—and how the political & military strategies of the Lebanese Resistance party, Hezbollah, caused a significant, scrambling, reaction from the US (imposing sanctions on Lebanon & Syria).

I recently spoke with independent investigative journalist and writer, Cory Morningstar, about matters Covid19 hysteria & propaganda (with a focus on Ontario), the experimental & dangerous so-called "Covid vaccines" & the endless boosters that will follow, the opioid epidemic & Big Pharma's role in it (including the jab makers), and SPARS 2025-2028.
Cory is a mother and a gardener (her words). She is also one of the most phenomenal researchers out there. Please read this bio for more information on her extensive & important work:
 https://orgrad.wordpress.com/a-z-of-thinkers/cory-morningstar/
*Note: this interview was conducted at the end of July. I apologize to Cory & you all for the delay in getting it published.
Quotes:
"The war on terror is over, this is the war on people, the war on a virus. It's the war on humanity, the war on us."
"The vaccines have been implemented under emergencies authorization. They're not FDA approved. And that approval only stays in place if it can be justified. As soon as there is no more emergency, it can no longer be justified and that emergency authorization ceases to exist. So you can see, we have to keep this up, the story has to stay intact or the whole house of cards collapses.
This is not about health, this is about money and power. This is about resetting the whole global economy which was close to collapse before this happened."

 Recently, I spoke with Mr. Randy Hillier, an Independent Member of Provincial Parliament for Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston, Ontario. We discussed Canada's increasingly totalitarian measures over the past year plus, under the pretext of keeping Canadians safe from Covid, as well as the incessant fear-mongering of the government and media, the utter lack of logic to the public health policies put forth, the hypocrisy of people in positions of power saying to do one thing but doing another (clearly indicating they do not believe in the rules they impose), and the Canadian public's shocking embrace of harmful totalitarian policies.

Randy Hillier has been an MPP for nearly fourteen years and is thus well-experienced and well-versed in the inner workings of politics that most normal Canadians might be unaware of. He sheds light on how many of the anti-science Covid policies that have been enacted over the past year are the result of lobbying on behalf of powerful corporations, and are protected by Canada's bureaucracy, where it becomes nearly impossible to hold an elected member, or a non-elected Chief Medical Officer, accountable, even if one has evidence of wrong-doing.

Fascinating conversation with Ottawa-based physicist and interdisciplinary scientist, Denis Rancourt, a former tenured professor of physics at U of Ottawa (for 20+ years) and currently a researcher with the Ontario Civil Liberties Association.

Denis speaks about a variety of issues pertaining to Covid, the faulty science around all things Covid, Ontario's incompetent chief medical officers, the brutality of lockdowns—especially on the disadvantaged of society, and more.

My latest, on RT.com

For some years now, Wikipedia has had a libellous smear entry on me that cannot be edited to be less of a smear. So, imagine my surprise to learn a co-founder of the site accuses it of not being neutral.

In February 2021, Larry Sanger, one of the founders of the online encyclopedia, said, “The days of Wikipedia's robust commitment to neutrality are long gone.” This was not his first time speaking out against Wikipedia. Personally, I was surprised to learn that Wikipedia was ever neutral. 

In his more recent post, ‘Wikipedia Is More One-Sided Than Ever’, Sanger wrote:

“Wikipedia, like many other deeply biased institutions of our brave new digital world, has made itself into a kind of thought police that has de facto shackled conservative viewpoints with which they disagree. Democracy cannot thrive under such conditions: I maintain that Wikipedia has become an opponent of vigorous democracy.” 

I would extend his criticism to note that it is not only conservative views that are censored, but anti-Imperialist views, health care, and, specifically in the case of Syria, voices who have reported extensively from on the ground and contest official narratives about the country. These include me and British journalist Vanessa Beeley. Not coincidentally, we have both been subjected to relentless smear pieces from the Western media and the self-proclaimed fact checkers of Snopes, branding us cheerleaders for terrorists in Syria. 

Unsurprisingly, the bulk of the wiki-smears on us consists of those character assassination articles. 

There are of course many more voices who have reported honestly on Syria but, for some reason, I couldn't find smear entries on them. On the contrary, some have what appear to be glossy PR entries of a more biographical nature, lauding their work. 

But for Vanessa Beeley and I, although much biographical information on each of us is widely available online, the Wiki entries remain devoid of the usual bios and instead are just designed to discredit us. 

Sanger noted that, “All encyclopedic content on Wikipedia,” declares a policy page, “must be written from a neutral point of view (NPOV).”

He went on to detail what this “neutrality” means or should mean. 

“From a truly neutral article, you would learn why, on a whole variety of issues, conservatives believe one thing, while progressives believe another thing. And then you would be able to make up your own mind.

Is that what Wikipedia offers? As we will see, the answer is No.”

He went on to give numerous examples of Wikipedia's stark lack of neutrality on critical issues. For the sake of brevity, I would encourage readers to check out on Sanger's article for the full list.

However, let's look at the entries on myself and Vanessa Beeley. 

Mine refers to me as “a Canadian activist and blogger who is known for promoting conspiracy theories about Syria.” Relegating me to a “blogger” was clearly intended to dispute my credentials as a journalist. Credentials which the Mexican Journalists’ Press Club deemed journalistically credible enough to award. Likewise, award-winning journalist and filmmaker John Pilger more recently deemed my latest article on the Douma chemical hoax an “outstanding report.” [https://twitter.com/johnpilger/status/1397901080864858114 ]

The Wiki smear also states that I “write op-eds for the television network RT.” For a while, that line read, “She blogs for the Russian-controlled outlet RT”, a bogus claim that many journalists (including the fact checkers of Channel 4) have copy-paste repeated without bothering to see that, like tens of other journalists, what I write is actually for the op-edge section of RT's website.

The entry goes on to cite from the litany of smear articles against me since 2016, smears which I have refuted, and which always read the same: copy-paste character assassinations that whitewash terrorism in Syria. 

Then, there is the clear instance of libel: Wikipedia's assertion that I, “went on a government-sponsored trip to North Korea.”

In fact, my August 2017 trip to the DPRK was not paid for by any government, but by myself, with some support from a colleague who knew I lived on a shoestring.

This lie was most recently regurgitated by British journalist (and I use that term generously) Brian Whitaker. 

Any defamation lawyers out there? 

Similarly, the Wiki smear entry on Vanessa Beeley relegates her to mere “blogger” status (although John Pilger thinks highly enough of her, and myself, to have highlighted our “substantiated investigative work”) and in 2018 she was included on a list of the most respected journalists in the UK.

It includes the same“conspiracy theories and disinformation” line that mine does, as well as the usual, predictable anti-Russia rhetoric. 

But even I was shocked to see Wikipedia's claim that Beeley has, “been a frequent guest on InfoWars.” When I asked her about this, she replied: “This is an outright lie. I have never been a guest of Infowars. I challenge Wikipedia to publish the multiple interviews they claim exist. They can't.” 

So there we have it. Not only are the entries not even close to neutral, each contains outright fabrication in addition to the character assassinations. 

At some point in 2018, I shared an email I had received from a Wikipedia editor, which noted: 

“Dear Eva, I'm writing to inform you that we have taken action against a banned user who evaded their ban to create an article about you. The article has been removed. I do not have the full context here, but the content seems to have been extremely problematic and from your Twitter and the flood of supporter emails we received yesterday, I gather this has been an issue for some time.” 

And indeed, supporters told me they had contacted Wikipedia to challenge the smear entry on me and were successful in making changes to read more fairly. Yet, in short time, the entry returned to nearly exactly as it had originally been. 

The Wikitalk portion of the smear entry on me points out: “Contentious material about living persons that is unsourced or poorly sourced must be removed immediately from the article and its talk page, especially if potentially libellous. If such material is repeatedly inserted, or if you have other concerns, please report the issue to this noticeboard.” 

But no, that hasn't happened in my entry.

On the same page, supporters called Wikipedia out: “It's bordering onWP:ATTACK. Nothing about her early life, education or volunteer activities etc, which you'd expect to find in a Biography. It's just a monologue of critical opinion pieces, with a couple of lines thrown in at the end to cover her response & with a selective focus on the usual slanted key words used to disparage.” 

Another critic of the entry pointed out the sources used were “questionable”, including noting that one source, Al Jazeera, is, “owned by the Qatari Royal family...and Qatar has been funding some of the Salafi rebels in Syria. Seriously, does anyone think they will report even remotely fairy on Eva Bartlett?” 

n his June post on Wikipedia, Larry Sanger wrote:

“Democracy requires that voters be given the full range of views on controversial issues, so that they can make up their minds for themselves. If society’s main information sources march in ideological lockstep, they make a mockery of democracy. Then the wealthy and powerful need only gain control of the few approved organs of acceptable thought; then they will be able to manipulate and ultimately control all important political dialogue.” 

Similarly, Vanessa Beeley had this to say on the matter: “The Jimmy Wales Wikipedia enterprise is little more than a McCarthyite echo chamber that is weaponized to discredit journalists and academics who are influential in challenging US or UK Imperialist policies. There is virtually no redress for the targeted individuals, 'editors' scrub any corrections almost immediately. Wikipedia is effectively a gatekeeper for the ruling class.” 

In any case, for those interested in a fairer rendition of who is Eva Bartlett, someone created an entry on a site called Everpedia, and otherwise I have an about me section on my blog. 

Unfortunately, many will first come across the wiki entries on myself and colleagues, and many will stop there. But, after all the smears, my skin has grown thick and I'm at peace with the fact that I know I've reported honestly. 

I highly doubt the editors behind such Wiki smears can say the same of their edits.

 While in Damascus recently, I spoke with Pierre Le Corf, a French humanitarian I've known since 2016, who has been living in Syria for the past six years, and has seen and deeply experienced all aspects of the war on Syria, living mainly in Aleppo. 

Given that Pierre lives among Syria's poorest families and devotes his time to helping poor communities in a myriad of ways, he is well-equipped to talk in detail about how Western sanctions against Syria are hurting the people. 

Excerpts:

“You might not see people starving in the street, but that's not what suffering is. People are suffering in silence. More and more, the youth are leaving the country, not because they want to leave Syria or feel oppressed, but because they feel that they have no hope anymore. The currency went from 50 Syrian pounts (before the war) to 4,000 Syrian pounds. People work from morning to night, and at the end of the day, their kids might ask for a banana. One kilogram of bananas is 5,000 Syrian pounds. When you earn 60,000 a month...”

He spoke of the pressure the US puts on every company and person who deals with Syria, that they can be imprisoned, fined. “They are forcing companies to not work with Syria,” to isolate Syria. 

“If you ask any Syrian in the street what the sanctions are for, they will tell you, 'It's hurting us and no one else.' I know families for who I'm trying to figure out how to bring them medicines that they can't find any more. A week ago, I went to bury a guy who we had been bringing medicine, because we couldn't find it any more. It became 90,000 pounds a box, he needed four boxes a month. He needed more medicine and better treatment, that we can't have, because its forbidden. Fobidden why? Because they pretend it's 'double use', maybe it could be used for the army. The people are paying the price, no one else. 

The sanctions are not just starving people and killing hope, they're also killing people.”

Speaking to Syrian media yesterday in Douma, Assad said of the West’s derision of the elections: “The best response to colonialist countries with histories of genocide and occupations was the mass turnout of the people for the vote.”


And, regarding what the West thinks of the legitimacy of those elections, he concluded: “Your opinions are worth zero, and you are worth 10 zeros.”


Amen to that.

Reality Theories, EvaK Bartlett
Public post
Fantastic endorsement by the esteemed John Pilger. I'm humbled.
"This outstanding report from Syria by Eva Bartlett penetrates the 'iron dome' of Western propaganda, also known as news.
It is about a chemical attack that never happened in a country attacked, subverted and blockaded in your name."
The article in question was published at Off Guardian, May 25, 2021 

May 20 marked the start of the 2021 Syrian presidential elections. Syrians around the world outside of Syria will cast their votes—if their embassies haven’t been closed, or voting prohibited, in the countries they reside in that is.
As I wrote last week,
Western leaders hypocritically claimed concern for Syrians and wanted to ensure they live democratically – by funding and arming terrorists from around the world to slaughter them and destroy their homes, governmental buildings, and historic and cultural places–but continue to do everything in their power to make it difficult-to-impossible for Syrians to exercise their rights to vote for their president.
In closing Syrian embassies around the world, the regime-change alliance made very clear that they do not want the Syrian people to exercise their democratic right to vote in presidential elections past and future. They know that Syrians would come out in masses to vote for their president. 
Otherwise, Syrians will, on May 26, vote in Syria. This is a historic moment: after 10 years of would-be regime change in Syria, ten bloody years of unnecessary war on Syria, Syrians voting, whether for Assad or not, are voting in defiance of the West’s attempts to install a puppet government. 
In their attempts to overthrow President Assad, the West and allies have concocted accusation after accusation about alleged atrocities committed by Syria. Among the many fabrications, the more recent and perhaps notable was that of the April 2018, Douma “chemical attack” allegations. 
The Douma “Chemical Attack”
Three years ago on April 7, France, the UK and the US (FUKUS) and their allies, along with the entirety of Western corporate media, alleged that the Syrian army had used chemical weapons on civilians in Douma, just northeast of Damascus. 
The allegation was that a chemical agent airdropped onto the town had killed dozens of civilians.
As I wrote at the time, the West’s claims to have evidence to back these allegations was a transparent lie: what they had were dubious, unverified, video clips and photos shared on social media, provided by the Western-funded White Helmets and other partial and non-credible sources with affiliations to, and admiration for, Jaysh al-Islam and co-terrorist groups in eastern Ghouta.
One week later, the night before Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) inspectors were due to visit Douma (at the request of the Syrian government), FUKUS launched 103 missiles at Syria. Bombing within Damascus itself and putting the lives of Syrian civilians at risk.
They carried out this attack without waiting for any evidence at all, much less a full investigation by the OPCW. Far from a concern for the truth, or wanting to “protect” Syrian lives, FUKUS’ response was clearly about applying both political and military pressure to the government they had been trying to change for almost a decade. 
Indeed, the immediate attribution of guilt to the Syrian government, alongside the promptness of the retaliation, suggests at least foreknowledge of the “attack”, if not outright responsibility for it.

Independent Media on the Ground in Syria
In contrast to the propaganda put forth from outside of Syria – by dubious propaganda outlets like Bellingcat, as well as most of Western media – a number of journalists actually went to the area in question and spoke with medical personnel and residents. 
These include Russian and Syrian media, followed by foreign journalists including One America News Network, Vanessa Beeley, Robert Fisk, Germany’s ZDF, and myself.
We learned: there was no indication that any of the people brought in to the medical point had been exposed to a chemical agent; they were, instead, treated for normal shelling injuries, as well as for breathing difficulties due to the combination of smoke, dust, and their having taken refuge for extended periods in basements; they were all sent home after treatment, no one died in the makeshift hospital. 
We also heard of the horrific suffering of civilians in eastern Ghouta, under the savage rule of Jaysh al-Islam, Faylaq al-Rahman, and the other terrorist factions occupying the region. In fact, most residents I spoke with were more desperate to emphasize how awful life had been under their rule than talk about what they clearly viewed as lies, the chemical allegations....
