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."

The neoconservatives who now run U.S. foreign policy, like "Dr. Strangelove," want to start a nuclear attack on Russia ...likely bringing on the extinction of us human beings, or at least those in the northern hemisphere. Certainly all Americans and Europeans would oppose this ...unless "reliable sources" assure us that Russia is about to attack us. Who are these reliable sources? Why the neocons who have taken over Washington and it's European vassals, all of which are lying through their teeth -- pure propaganda. The "mainstream media?" They repeat this propaganda or lose their jobs. This leaves the human race only one chance: put aside your cognitive dissonances and watch what Russia has been saying on Russia Today (RT) or Sputnik News. Hint: you will find out that Russia wants peace more than anything. So, dear readers, if you take this advice our children and grandchildren may yet live to thank us.
The entire Western edifice rests on lies. There is no other foundation. Just lies.
This makes truth an enemy. Enemies have to be suppressed, and thus truth has to be suppressed.
Truth comes from foreign news sources, such as RT, and from Internet sites, such as this one.
Thus, Washington and its vassals are busy at work closing down independent media.
Washington and its vassals have redefined propaganda. Truth is
propaganda if it is told by countries, such as Russia and China, that
have independent foreign policies.
Propaganda is truth if told by Washington and its puppets, such as the EU Observer.
The EU Observer, little doubt following Washington’s orders, has
denounced RT and Sputnik News for “broadcasting fabrications and hate
speech from their bureaus in European Union cities.”
Often I appear on both RT and Sputnik. In my opinion both are too
restrained in their reporting, fearful, of course, of being shut down,
than full truth requires. I have never heard a word of hate speech or
propaganda on either. Washington’s propaganda, perhaps, but not the
In other words, the way Washington has the news world rigged, not even independent news sites can speak completely clearly.
The Western presstitutes have succeeded in creating a false reality
for insouciant Americans and also for much of the European Union
A sizable percentage of these insouciant peoples believe that Russia
invaded Ukranine and that Russia is threatening to invade the Baltic
States and Poland. This belief exists despite all intelligence of all
Western governments reporting that there is no sign of any Russian
forces that would be required for invasion.
The “Russian invasion,” like “Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass
destruction and al Qaeda connections,” like “Assad of Syria’s use of
chemical weapons against his own people,” like “Iranian nukes,” never
existed but nevertheless became the reality in the Western media. The
insouciant Western peoples believe in non-existent occurrencies.
In other words, just to state the obvious noncontroversial fact, the
Western “news” media is a propaganda ministry from which no truth
Thus, the Western World is ruled by propaganda. Truth is excluded.
Fox “news,” CNN, the NY Times, Washington Post, and all the rest of the
most accomplished liars in world history, repeat constantly the same
lies. For Washington, of course, and the military/security complex.
War is the only possible outcome of propaganda in behalf of war. When
the irresponsible Western media brings Armageddon to you, you can thank
the New York Times and the rest of the presstitutes for the destruction
of yourself and all your hopes for yourself and your children.
Stephen Lendman, who comprises a good chunk of the remaining moral conscience of the West, explains the situation:
EU Bashes “Russian Propaganda”
by Stephen Lendman
Western major media march to the same drummer – dutifully
regurgitating managed news misinformation garbage, willfully burying
hard truths on issues mattering most.
Alternative sources beholden to truth and full disclosure operate by
different standards – engendering ire among Western nations wanting
their high crimes suppressed – bashing sources revealing them.
The EU Observer (EUO) claims independent credentials while supporting policies responsible news sources denounce.
Independently reporting hard truths isn’t its long suit. Its editor,
Lisbeth Kirk, is the wife of former Danish European Parliament member
Jens-Peter Bonde. Human Rights Watch’s European and Central Asian
advocacy director Veronika Szente Goldston calls its journalists “the
most in-your-face in Brussels.”
EUO irresponsibly bashed Russia’s Sputnik News and RT International –
two reputable sources for news, information and analysis – polar
opposite Western media propaganda.
It shamelessly called their reporting valued by growing millions
“broadcasting fabrications and hate speech from their bureaus in EU
It touted plans by EU officials to counter what they called “use and
misuse of communications tools…play(ing) an important role in the
dramatic political, economic and security-related developments (in)
Eastern (European countries) over the past 18 months.”
It drafted a nine-page “action plan” intended to convey “positive”
messages. It’ll increase funding to blast out Europe’s view of things
It wants EU policies promoted in former Russian republics the
old-fashioned way – by repeating Big Lies often enough until most people
A new EU foreign service cell called East StratComTeam operating by
September will run things – functioning as a European ministry of
It’ll “develop dedicated communication material on priority
issues…put at the disposal of the EU’s political leadership, press
services, EU delegations and EU member states.”
Material circulated in Russia and other EU countries aims to let news
consumers “easily understand that political and economic reforms
promoted by the EU can, over time, have a positive impact on their daily
lives” – even though precisely the opposite is true.
It wants so-called benefits Europeans enjoy explained to people
continent-wide. Will millions of unemployed, underemployed and
impoverished people buy what’s plainly untrue from their own experience?
Sputnik News, RT, US independent sources like the Progressive Radio
Network and numerous others steadily gain audience strength at the
expense of scoundrel media people abandon for good reason.
Growing numbers want truth and full disclosure on things affecting
their lives and welfare. Politicians in Western countries want ordinary
people treated like mushrooms – well-watered and in the dark.
RT’s editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said “the European Union is
diligently trying to stifle the alternative voice of RT, at a time when
in Europe there are hundreds of newspapers, television channels and
radio stations, which set out only one point of view on what is
happening in the world.”
The BBC is Fox News with an English accent. US so-called public radio
and broadcasting are no different – telling listeners and viewers
everything except what they most need to know.
Simonyan explained “Britain (has) an entire army brigade of 1,500
men…whose tasks include the fight against Russia on social networks.
NATO has a task force aimed at countering Russian influence throughout
“Only recently, Deutsche Welle launched a 24-hour television channel
in English to counter RT. At the same time, nearly all the major Western
media, including the BBC, DW and Euronews have long disseminated their
information in the Russian language, while Radio Liberty, funded
directly by the US government, broadcasts in Russian.”
“(I)f after all this, the EU still complains that they are losing the
‘information war’ against Russia, perhaps it’s time to realize that”
growing numbers of people are fed up with being lied to.
People want reliable sources of news, information and analysis
unavailable through mainstream Western sources using propagandists
masquerading as journalists.
