There are no moderate, mainstream centrists in the US-centralized empire. They do not exist. It’s not that moderate, mainstream centrism is an inherently impossible position. In a healthy world, that’s exactly what the predominant worldview would be. But we do not live in a healthy world. There are no moderate, mainstream centrists anywhere in the tight alliance of nations which function as a single empire on foreign policy, because that functional empire is built upon murder, terrorism, exploitation, oppression, ecocide and the stockpiling of armageddon weapons. People who support the status quo of this empire are called “moderates”, but, just like the so-called “moderate rebels” of Syria, they are in fact violent extremists.

How do the Democrats benefit from the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests? While the protests are being used to paint Trump as a race-bating white supremacist, that is not their primary objective. The main goal is to suppress and demonize Trump’s political base which is comprised of mainly white working class people who have been adversely impacted by the Democrats disastrous free trade and immigration policies. These are the people– liberal and conservative– who voted for Trump in 2016 after abandoning all hope that the Democrats would amend their platform and throw a lifeline to workers who are now struggling to make ends meet in America’s de-industrialized heartland.

Across my career, I have said more positive words about the scolex family of intestinal tapeworms than I have said about Donald Trump. (Scolex have been shown to read more.) No, this is a column about context. When The New York Times reports anonymous sources from the intelligence community say Russia paid Taliban fighters to kill American soldiers, context is very important. Some of that context is that Mike Pompeo said, “I was the CIA director – We lied, we cheated, we stole. We had entire training courses.” So we know for certain that U.S. intelligence agencies lie to you and me. We saw it with WMD, and we might be seeing it again now. But that’s not the context I’m referring to.

Like so many other things, all this Ghislaine Maxwell buzz would be a lot more interesting without all the dumbass partisan angles people are putting on it. People fixate on the Trump angle or the Clintons angle when it’s clear they’ve all been manipulated by forces that are far more powerful than they are.

By Steve Watson - Testifies that Google and Facebook are trying to have a monopoly on news with ‘black box’ algorithms. Newspaper executive Peter Wright has slammed big tech for secretively developing and changing algorithms for news distribution without giving the industry any indication whatsoever of what they are doing. Wright of DMG Media, which is the parent company of The Daily Mail, was testifying before the House of Lords Communications and Digital Committee Tuesday.

WASHINGTON, June 29. /TASS/. US intelligence services have refuted media accusations that Russia offered money to militants in Afghanistan to kill American troops, US President Donald Trump commented on his Twitter account on Monday. The New York Times published a report earlier in the month stating that an unidentified unit of Russia’s military intelligence had secretly incited Taliban (outlawed in Russia) militants to attack servicemen of the international coalition in Afghanistan.

The term “The Untouchables” referred not to the Chicago mafia but to Eliot Ness’ incorruptible gang of cops. In the Obama era, however, that term is flipped on its head. It applies to the former president himself and his own sort of mob—a broad syndicate of henchmen, including corrupt cops, who continue to serve their Don and enrich themselves in the process. Barack Obama still calls the shots and pulls the strings while his goombahs in the news media, federal government, and Democratic Party carry out his orders.

All western mass media outlets are now shrieking about the story The New York Times first reported, citing zero evidence and naming zero sources, claiming intelligence says Russia paid out bounties to Taliban-linked fighters in Afghanistan for attacking the occupying forces of the US and its allies in Afghanistan. As of this writing, and probably forevermore, there have still been zero intelligence sources named and zero evidence provided for this claim. As we discussed yesterday, the only correct response to unsubstantiated claims by anonymous spooks in a post-Iraq invasion world is to assume that they are lying until you’ve been provided with a mountain of hard, independently verifiable evidence to the contrary.

First published on November 24, 2016. The mainstream corporate media is desperate. They want to suppress independent and alternative online media, which it categorizes as “fake news”.
Readers on social media are warned not to go onto certain sites.
The intent of this initiative is to smear honest reporting and Truth in Media. Our analysis confirms that the mainstream media are routinely involved in distorting the facts and turning realities upside down. They are the unspoken architects of “Fake News”. One area of routine distortion is the use of fake videos and images by the mainstream media. These are four examples and there are many more. The manipulation of videos and images is routine. In some cases, these manipulations are revealed by readers, independent media and social media. In most cases they go undetected. And when they are revealed, the media will say “sorry” we apologize: they will then point to technical errors. “we got the wrong video”.

By Joe Lauria - Journalism by definition must be impartial and non-partisan, but it is rapidly disappearing in a landscape dominated by media feverishly wedded to either of two political camps. The term “impartial journalism” is redundant. If it’s not impartial, it’s not really journalism. Aside from the Five Ws, the most basic thing a cub reporter learns is that there are two or more sides to every story and a reporter must put her or his biases aside to fairly tell it. Newswriting demands a neutral point of view, favoring none of the sides. The facts will determine who might be the villain. In reporting on conflicts—the essential drama inherent in journalism—there’s plenty of gray area.

Former US President Barack Obama has won liberal praise with a compassionate speech on the killing of George Floyd, while Trump gets nothing but hate. Neither has done much to fix things – but Trump has done it with an ugly face. Barack Obama has given his perfunctory speech about the Black Lives Matter protests taking place in America, and it was every bit as full of pretty words and empty of actual substance as you’d expect from a president who spent eight years stagnating the progressive movement with empty hope narrative while advancing the same murderous oppressive agendas as his predecessors.

The US informed the Netherlands that they cannot provide declassified satellite images which allegedly show the launch of a BUK missile responsible of the MH17 crash in the Donbass six years ago. The presiding judge, Hendrik Steenhuis, said this at a meeting on the passenger plane crash case. The MH17 crash hearing resumed on Monday 8 June 2020. Few months ago, the MH17 court asked the US to provide declassified satellite images which are mentionned as a source in a report that they sent back in 2014, as a proof of a BUK launch.

On 5 June 2020, The Lancet withdrew an article it had published on May 22 , followed an hour later by the New England Journal of Medicine’s retraction of a similar article appeared on 1 May . These two articles   had been spotlighted by a high-profile media coverage orchestrated by the US-based Gilead Sciences laboratory. They purported to prove that certain drugs were ineffective for Covid-19, thus clearing the way for their own drugs.

By Alan Macleod - The latest instance of American social disharmony being blamed on Moscow is part of a long tradition, where some see an invisible Russian hand whenever it is useful.
