One 77-year-old’s search for the truth: 9/11, election fraud, illegal wars, Wall Street criminality, a stolen nuke, the neocon wars, control of the U.S. government by global corporations, the unjustified assault on Social Security, media complicity, and the "Great Recession" about to become the second Great Depression. "The most important truths are hidden from us by the powerful few who strive to steal the American dream by keeping We the People in the dark."

Paul Craig Roberts: "Wolf Blitzer (CNN, March 13) used the cover of a news program to broadcast a propaganda performance straight out of the Third Reich or perhaps from George Orwell’s 1984. The orchestration presented Russia as a massive, aggressive military threat. The screen was filled with missiles firing and an assortment of American General Strangeloves urging provocative measures to be deployed against the Russian Threat. Blitzer’s program is part of the orchestrated propaganda campaign whose purpose is to prepare Americans for conflict with Russia." The Blogger: "Had he not commited suicide, Goebbels would have been hung for doing precisely what Blitzer is doing now. Wake up America!"
President George W. Bush’s national security advisor, Condi Rice,
warned Americans that Saddam Hussein’s (nonexistent) weapons of mass
destruction could result in a mushroom cloud going up over an American
city. No such threat existed. But today a very real threat exists over
all American cities, and the national security advisor does not notice.
The threat issues from Washington and arises from the demonization of Russia and its leadership.
Wolf Blitzer (CNN, March 13) used the cover of a news program to
broadcast a propaganda performance straight out of the Third Reich or
perhaps from George Orwell’s 1984. The orchestration presented
Russia as a massive, aggressive military threat. The screen was filled
with missiles firing and an assortment of American General Strangeloves
urging provocative measures to be deployed against the Russian Threat.
Blitzer’s program is part of the orchestrated propaganda campaign whose
purpose is to prepare Americans for conflict with Russia.
It was such irresponsible propaganda and so many blatant lies for a
media organization to sponsor that it was obvious that CNN and Wolf
Blitzer had no fear of being called on the carpet for spreading war
fever. The so-called “mainstream media” has been transformed into a
Ministry of Propaganda.
Similar propaganda is being spread in the UK where defense minister
Michael Fallon declared Russia to be a “real and present danger” to
Europe. US troops and tanks are being rushed to the Baltics on the
pretext that Russia is going to attack.
That such blatant lies can issue from high government officials
without a shred of evidence and without shame should scare you to death.
We are witnessing the total disrespect for truth and human life by high
government officials and the presstitute media.
The propaganda is driving the world toward war. The propaganda has destroyed the trust between nuclear powers and
has resurrected the threat of nuclear armageddon. The Russian
government sees that Washington and its NATO vassals are conjuring a
nonexistent Russian Threat. Clearly this conjured threat has a purpose
that intends Russia harm.
Washington’s propaganda spread by the presstitutes is the most
irresponsible act in human history. Reagan and Gorbachev succeeded in
removing the threat of nuclear war, and the crazed neoconservatives and
their media whores have brought it back.
Washington’s propaganda attack on Russia and Vladimir Putin is like
Washington’s attack on Afghanistan and Osama bin Laden, Iraq and Saddam
Hussein, Libya and Gaddafi. Does this mean that Washington intends to
attack Russia in a pre-emptive nuclear strike?
If so, it means the end of the world. Clearly, the threat to the
United States and the entire world resides in Washington and not in
Moscow. The threat is the crazed neoconservative ideology of US world
hegemony supported by the unbridled greed of American corporations to
control the resources of the world
Putin understands the seriousness of the situation and is working
hard to diffuse it, but Washington has made it impossible to diffuse.
Washington’s price is that Putin must hand over Crimea and the Russian
Black Sea naval base, abandon the Russian populations in southern and
eastern Ukraine, and accept NATO military bases in Ukraine.
Washington’s demand is a demand for Russia’s pre-emptive surrender.
In the CNN propaganda show, Wolf Blitzer failed to report that German
intelligence challenges Washington’s claims about Russia and that the
French and German governments have finally realized that Washington is
insane and are working desperately to stop Washington’s drive toward
Washington and its UK puppet have spent the entirety of the 21st
century creating death and destruction. Seven countries have been
invaded, bombed, or droned in order “to spread democracy.” Iraq is
destroyed, as is Afghanistan, Libya and Somalia . Syria nearly so, and
Pakistan and Yemen are politically and socially destabilized by
incessant US air attacks. The democratic, elected, governments of
Honduras and Ukraine have been overthrown by US coups. Venezuela is
next in line, with Bolivia, Ecuador, Argentina and Brazil waiting their
Washington has given the world 14 years of brutal and inhumane war.
Isn’t this enough evil? Does Washington have to give us more?
Washington and the presstitutes have lost their humanity. They have
become agents of evil. If mushroom clouds appear, the responsibility
will lie with Wolf Blitzer, CNN, and the presstitutes who beat the drums
