Daily Beast Revealed as Propaganda Rag

Shards of Truth in MH17 Investigation (But not at Daily Beast)

Doing what the Dutch investigation has so far declined to do – smear the separatists and Russia – the “Daily Beast” comes up with a belated hit piece, adding exactly nothing new, but taking the opportunity to repeat the US propaganda line…

‘How can you tell it’s a smear job,’ you ask?

The one link to any opposing ideas goes to a discredited piece of obvious disinformation, that infamous Photoshopped picture of an attacking plane [above]. The Daily Beast uses the smarmy jibe, “as some Russian media claimed,” to pretend they’ve actually looked at both sides of the debate. They have not, and will not.

My response there won’t post, so I’m annoyed. Perhaps they have my email and/or IP address on their list as well. But their site won’t put it through, not in Chrome, Opera nor Microsoft Internet Explorer.… Read the rest

Monsanto is now the leader in corn in Ukraine and 7 other ways they are killing the 5 year plan

monsantopoison

Via WTF News:

Monsanto’s reported 34 percent earnings decline, which was hinted at last quarter as we reported, was released during the media frenzy after the terror attacks in Paris.

AP
Monsanto said Wednesday that its earnings fell 34 percent in its first fiscal quarter as South American farmers cut back on planting corn, reducing demand for the company’s biotech-enhanced seeds.

U.S. farmers harvested record crops of soybeans and corn last year, sending prices on those food staples to their lowest levels in years. That has resulted in farmers in South America and elsewhere reducing the number of acres they dedicate to corn. The company said lower corn plantings in the U.S. will likely reduce second quarter results by 5 to 10 percent compared with the prior year.

Monsanto said its business was also affected by reduced cotton planting in Australia and a shift in timing for its chemical business.

Bring Back Adolf: Needed, A New Furor About Der Führer

Adolf Hitler-1933.jpg

“Adolf Hitler-1933″ by Heinrich Hoffman (CC)

The ISIS gang makes great enemies. They dress in black, wear Halloween masks, wave flags, act viciously, and cut off the heads of journalists.

Never mind that the Saudis beheaded ten dissidents on the night that Jack Foley became their first victim. We didn’t know the Saudi victims and didn’t want to embarrass our ally, but chop people we do know, and you are asking for a drone up your keister.

Nothing like a grotesque atrocity to pump up Joe Biden to vow to “chase ISIS to the gates of hell,” a war cry designed to get the Christian right behind him since the IS detests Jesus too. Barack Obama’s vow to destroy and “degrade” ISIS did not have the same populist appeal.

Every evangelical activist who has been singing “Onward Christian Soldiers” has a new cause now, even if ISIS’ last victim was an Israeli-American.… Read the rest

The Comforts of Blame

Vladimir_Putin_-_2006

Attribution: Kremlin.ru

Sure, Putin is a bad guy, but is he the head of the Illuminati, responsible for all the problems in the world – is any one person even capable of such?

Binoy Kampmark writes at CounterPunch:

Investigations tend to be called upon to do just that. Causes are identified; actors are located.  The investigation being demanded by all countries that lost citizens on Malaysian flight MH17 in Ukraine was a perfectly logical, and legal demand.  The language of pre-emption, however, was never far away, begging the question on whether an investigation was even needed.

From the start, the rhetoric surrounding the shooting down of MH17 has been scripted as a matter of moral urgency and outrage.  Culprits have been sought with zeal, and the language of a crime site used to explain the radius within which the remains of the aircraft fell.  Someone pulled the trigger, as much as that can be said.

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17: The Inevitable Conspiracy Theories

The usual suspects are surfacing with unlikely conspiracy theories about the latest disaster to affect Malaysia Airlines, the shooting down of its flight MH17 above Ukraine. The “Conspiritard” sub-Reddit has plenty of MH17 craziness, including a link to this story from The Independent:

As the Ukrainian military and separatist rebels continue to deny shooting down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, people have been offering their own theories about the tragedy.

One prominent accusation is that Russia attempted to start “World War III” by ordering rebels in Ukraine to fire at the plane.

A pundit on Before It’s News claimed the tragedy was “clearly” an attempted false flag to launch a new global war by the “New World Order” (NWO).

The post read: “The occult/illuminati connection to this plane crash are laid out in the video below and are absolutely stunning as the NWO attempts to start WW3 as their grip on power falls apart as the US dollar dies and on the same day TWA Flight 800 was shot down in 1996.”

Others believe the Ukrainian government was behind the attack but had aimed to kill Putin, believing the passenger aircraft was his personal jet.

Media Roots Radio: DC Think Tanks Create New Cold War Tipping Point

On March 3rd, 2014 Abby Martin decided to speak her mind and express her disappointment regarding the Crimea media coverage from all sides of the spectrum live on her television show, Breaking The Set. The story went viral on the mainstream media, only because her show airs on Russian backed RT, and Russia had just stepped into the conflict following the coup in Ukraine. Immediately following this action, a cadre of younger thirty-something neoconservatives in the heart of Washington DC tried to smear Abby after discovering her political views. In addition to the distorted take-down attempts against her, they tried to hijack her stand and manipulate it into anti-Russian / pro-US propaganda.

CIA And FBI ‘Advising’ Ukrainian Government

PIC: Mstyslav Chernov

German media reports that American intelligence and law enforcement assets are “advising” (make air quotes when you read that) the Ukrainian government. Advising. For freedom.
Via Yahoo:

Berlin (AFP) – Dozens of specialists from the US Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation are advising the Ukrainian government, a German newspaper reported Sunday.

Citing unnamed German security sources, Bild am Sonntag said the CIA and FBI agents were helping Kiev end the rebellion in the east of Ukraine and set up a functioning security structure.

It said the agents were not directly involved in fighting with pro-Russian militants. “Their activity is limited to the capital Kiev,” the paper said.

There. He Said It: Ukraine Crisis Could Spark “World War III”

PIC: YBILYK (CC)

Jon Queally writes at Common Dreams:

Ukraine’s interim Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk did not mince words on Friday as he invoked the possibility that the crisis in Ukraine could quickly spiral out of control and spark a Third World War.

“The world has not yet forgotten World War Two, but Russia already wants to start World War Three,” Yatseniuk told his cabinet in remarks broadcast live from Kiev. “Attempts at military conflict in Ukraine will lead to a military conflict in Europe.”

Tensions in the former Soviet-bloc country returned to high levels on Thursday following assaults on outposts manned by pro-Russian Ukrainians in the east by special forces sent by the Kiev government. At least five people were reported killed in one clash.

That incident and other movements by Ukraine soldiers against those in the east demanding referendums to decide their future political affiliations spurred Russian President Vladimir Putin to say that further violence would result in unspecified “consequences.”

At the diplomatic level, the situation continues to deteriooriate as Russian, U.S., and Ukraine officials trade threats as the detente reached in Geneva last weeks begins to rapidly fade.
