honey-pot

In a classic honey pot trap a crude photo was sent mysteriously out into the chain to be picked up and passed on in order to DISCREDIT anyone vouching for it.

APAssociated Propaganda takes point:

Russian TV says photo shows Ukrainian fighter downed Malaysian plane; US rejects that claim

“Mark Solonin, a Russian author who is an engineer by training, said in his blog that both aircraft looked disproportionate to the landscape and concluded that their images were crudely edited into a satellite picture.

Others noted that the commercial airliner in the photo appears to be of a different type, a Boeing 767.”

Probably all true. The question is why? Who created an obvious fake photo showing what likely actually happened?

This isn’t the only fake or forgery going around. The audio “confession” of Donetsk commanders, which is up on the NY Times website, is a glaring fraud:

Kiev’s evidence of militia’s responsibility for airliner crash faked – expert

Only that particular fraud tells us a lot more about the actual shoot down operation. It was prepared PRIOR to the downing of MH17. It is a recording concerning the shoot down of a Ukraine SU-25 the day before, July 16th, not the 17th. Therefore this audio PSYOP was prepared and executed knowingly (by Ukraine intelligence working with CIA) in order to specifically blame the rebel commander.

More deception concerns BBC’s censoring of eyewitnesses who saw the Ukraine fighter jet in the same airspace as the destroyed Malaysian airliner.

Censorship or error? Internet criticism for BBC removal of MH17 report

So, to recap, this latest photo is a fake. It is faked in order to make you look bad if you present it as evidence. It exists to discredit YOU. Tellingly, the Toledo Blade (AP) wouldn’t even show the actual photo, as it looks too much like what actually occurred! They merely comment using bloggers as their sources.

Faked photo, of questionable sourcing - DO NOT USE:

This is a honey trap ploy to discredit Russian media. I suggest you read my piece on disinformation and the 9/11 Truth Movement to get up to speed on how this stuff distorts reality.

PS

Many people jumping over here from Disinformation. Other relevant info to the MH-17 includes the Russian presentation from back in July. Radar data showed the fighter plane:

The Russians tested the nose cannon from the SU-25 to compare damage:

MH-17: THE UNTOLD STORY

UNABLETOPOST-1 copy

Facebook has me unable to post any more comments that challenge Moyers’ slanted so-called “news.” Daily his feed posts a dozen different articles, mostly attacking Republicans, but coincidentally letting the Democrats slide, even in the face of glaring hypocrisy.

In a futile effort to keep him honest, I responded to these obvious hypocrisies. His gaggle of idiots mindlessly defended the indefensible (predictably). But Moyers himself never responds, except via this censorship.

Today he’s apparently taking on JP Morgan, while last week he was lauding Eric Holder, the man who let JP Morgan and friends rape and pillage without consequence. Shame this makes it nowhere near his deluded audience:

I think the zinger that got me banned by the poobah was this gem, which I may put on a shirt:

PARTISAN NEWS IS NOT REAL NEWS

Apparently, by censoring dissenters, Moyers has copped to the “partisan news” charge. Guilty. Half the story is a full lie, you know. That’s how this country is so utterly fucked up the ass, most of the people believe one party’s propaganda or the other’s. Neither is telling the full truth, and that is a MAJOR FUCKING PROBLEM, MR. BILL MOYERS.

“When the doctrine of allegiance to party can utterly up-end a man’s moral constitution and make a temporary fool of him besides, what excuse are you going to offer for preaching it, teaching it, extending it, perpetuating it? Shall you say, the best good of the country demands allegiance to party? Shall you also say it demands that a man kick his truth and his conscience into the gutter, and become a mouthing lunatic, besides?”

LIVE FEED: Riot police on standby for London Million Mask March

Looks very chaotic, pointless and dangerous. Chants include, “Revolution,” and the old standby, “Our Streets.”

But what are they about?

…Explosions are heard now, as I post. Police response.

PS

“Revolution” is a recipe for disaster. You need to build a better alternative and not tear down what exists. Mindless calls for “revolution” are as stupid and dangerous as the warmongers you claim to oppose. There is still a means for achieving power and making change legitimately, but it’s a lot harder than making a bunch of noise in the street once a year. You have to build a political movement to show up at the polls.

Ineffectual marches don’t change anything. What is the cause and effect? You make the politicians notice you? And? They notice challenges to their jobs a lot more. That’s where these mindless movements fail, and I suspect it’s by design. They claim to be leaderless, but someone decided what sort of protest would happen and on what day. As this is the only venting avenue in sight the disgruntled fall for it. It won’t work. It won’t change anything. But it manages to grab people and send them out marching in a pointless display. Tomorrow it will be over, and that’s that.

Build the alternative, or forget about it. You’re being played, million mask marchers. Your efforts are in vain.

space-station-76-(2014)-large-picture

This oddity left me wondering what the hell it was all for? This is not a sci-fi film, and it’s not about a space station. It’s a pseudo-period film, set in the 1970s inside another fictional sci-fi movie.

So it’s about mores and biases from the past. The obvious question is if they are still infecting the present? If the red parts of the maps are accurate then perhaps there’s something to that concept. Sexism, patriarchy, homosexuality, and parenting all get a poke. But it does seem like something is off-kilter in the plot of this thing.

I did laugh several times. The intentional awkwardness of the interactions makes this a comedy of discomforting social phenomena. The drugged-up useless mother versus the overachieving, childless career woman, the repressed homosexual captain vacillating between his overcompensating butch demeanor and flirting with his clueless crew, there are some familiar characters and tropes out of the 70s. But in the end, I thought there was a gaping hole in the story, some missing spine.

Space_Station_76_credit_Space_Station_76

It ends a bit dark, too. The exclamation point seems to want to say that this happened, in another context, in another realm on earth. So is it motivated by a troubled 70s childhood? 

On a five-star scale, I’d have to go about 2 for the laughs. It’s a curiosity more than a movie.

Glenn Greenwald:

Elizabeth Warren Finally Speaks on Israel/Gaza, Sounds Like Netanyahu

So the so-called “progressive” Democrats are full of shit. There is no hope, nor any representation, for people like myself in the Democrat Party. I knew that already, of course.

That is why I stopped voting for their devil’s bargain back in 2000 and I have been a vocal proponent of third parties, specifically the Greens and Justice Party, ever since. Everyone should de-register Democtat and become an Independent or a Green or whatever. It won’t cost you one penny. It will, however, shake up the business as usual in Washington DC. If there was a mass exodus and they could no longer take YOU for granted, they would have to change. The choice and the moral failing is in your court.

The pathetic pitch of Democrats, how people like Elizabeth Warren are the only hope that we’re supposed to hang all our hopes on, falls away like so much other political propaganda.

I do not endorse Israel’s genocide against the people of Palestine nor do I want ANY much-needed US tax money sent to that terrorist state so that it can steal the rest of the land. Neither of the two corporatist parties reflect that view, and they don’t represent me.

I removed Volume 2 from my Netflix queue, if that tells you anything.

Lars von Trier is the greatest living film director. Just ask him. He’s also obvious and self-indulgent, blunt like a sledgehammer and perhaps not the greatest screenwriter alive, although he may dispute me on it.

nymphomaniac-volume-1-photo-3

Nymphomaniac is a weird movie, more weird than some of his other pieces. It reeks of male sexual fantasy transplanted onto a female character. It also comes from some hyper-artsy left field, forcing fishing motifs onto the sexual depravity of his puppet.

I never did feel any of it could be real, could happen in the real world as portrayed. The artifice of it all was glorified. Maybe this was an effort to please an audience of one, and the rest of us just simply aren’t in on the joke.

Nymphomaniac

I feel even more down on the film since it’s a pretty good idea for a movie. I just wish von Trier wasn’t involved, at all, as he fucked it up with pretentious gobbledygook. I’ll skip the finale.

Cuban Politics & Zombies

It seems a lot of American critics saw only the surface criticisms of the film, and ignored the equally scathing critique of capitalism contained therein. US pundits, who raved about the movie, sought to use it as a propaganda piece for their own purposes, ignoring the complexity. Predictable.

The film contains an obvious set of barbs skewering the Cuban socialistic system for its shortfalls. It is cut off, with an embargo from the US for fifty years, because the US doesn’t like to have bad examples where the people get health care, for example. The Cuban economy has been hit pretty badly, but it still attracts tourists from across Europe and Latin America, as acknowledged in the film.

Juan and his gang are low level criminals, thieves, grifters, opportunists. Here’s where the unacknowledged critique of capitalism enters the story. When the zombiepocalypse hits, Juan takes it upon himself to start a Ghostbusters type zombie killing service – for a fee. He’s a mercenary, entirely in it for the money and unwilling to help others because it’s the right thing to do. Did you catch that?

He’s a criminal turned capitalist. They are closely related.

His sidekick then literally machetes a man to death, not a zombie, a man who owes him money. Driven by the desire to have money, he murders a begging neighbor in broad daylight.

While the anachronistic Cuban state TV propaganda receives much deserved satire, so too does the mercenary ruthlessness of disaster capitalism. Both these extremes are lampooned. This also elevates the film well above and beyond the simpleminded propaganda championed by simplistic US proponents. It takes a broader view, a more mature view of economic realities and shortcomings.

Spoiler

To bring the story full circle, Juan reconsiders his own personal self-interest by film’s close. Instead of running off to America with the others, he does a 180. As a patriotic Cuban, he returns to shore to do battle with the zombie hordes and save Cuba: a selfless act in the interest of the many, not of his own skin.

The deeper message is one of sacrificing for the good of the people, the socialistic ideal. The Cuban government, while evolving from the structures of the old Soviet times, retains this sense of the good of the many over the profit desires of psychopathic billionaires from abroad. That much is reinforced in the film. It takes some knowledge of the world beyond US State Department propaganda, though.

Juan is not a great zombie film, but it is a unique one. It’s an interesting take on a part of the world we don’t see too much.
