Propaganda site “The Washington Post” has posted a mealy-mouthed half-hearted explanation for its journalistic malfeasance.

Washington Post Appends Editor’s Note to Russian Propaganda Story

Editor’s Note: The Washington Post on Nov. 24 published a story on the work of four sets of researchers who have examined what they say are Russian propaganda efforts to undermine American democracy and interests. One of them was PropOrNot, a group that insists on public anonymity, which issued a report identifying more than 200 websites that, in its view, wittingly or unwittingly published or echoed Russian propaganda. A number of those sites have objected to being included on PropOrNot’s list, and some of the sites, as well as others not on the list, have publicly challenged the group’s methodology and conclusions. The Post, which did not name any of the sites, does not itself vouch for the validity of PropOrNot’s findings regarding any individual media outlet, nor did the article purport to do so. Since publication of The Post’s story, PropOrNot has removed some sites from its list.

Cold War Propaganda Reemerges In Response To ‘Fake News’

It’s like The Fucking Twilight Zone…

The New York Times tells us that the Saudi Arabian government funds the Taliban, whom the US has supposedly been at war with for 15 years!!!

Saudis Bankroll Taliban, Even as King Officially Supports Afghan Government

Saudi Arabia is critical because of its unique position in the Afghan conflict: It is on both sides.

We are beyond satire, beyond parody. It’s matter of fact, routine now, insanity on the pages of the news as if it’s normal.

How can anyone tolerate a government in bed with those who fund its official enemies, whom the military is actively fighting against?

Anyone?

Is this thing on?

James Mattis Is a War Criminal: I Experienced His Attack on Fallujah Firsthand

 

During the November siege of Fallujah later that same year, which I also covered first-hand, more than 5,000 Iraqi civilians were killed. Most were buried in mass graves in the aftermath of the siege.

Mosques were deliberately targeted by the US military, hospitals bombed, medical workers detained, ambulances shot at, cease-fires violated, media repressed, and the use of depleted uranium was widespread. All of these are, again, war crimes.

At that time I broke the story of the US military’s use of white phosphorous, an incendiary weapon similar to napalm in its ability to burn all the way down to the bone. The use of white phosphorus was a violation of international law, given that it was unleashed in the city during a time when the Pentagon itself admitted to at least 50,000 civilians still being present.

Barack Obama protected Al Qaeda in Libya and in Syria for more than five years. Now we have six new “deployments” to fight them in six new countries. And the sheeple slumber…

 

New report reveals spread of US war on Al-Qaeda to six new countries

The 60-page report shows deployments in over half a dozen new areas – including Somalia, Yemen, Jordan, Niger, Cameroon, Central Africa, the Red Sea, Somalia and South Sudan – with troops on the ground, regular air strikes, and surveillance efforts, all in the name of counterterrorism.

From government repression of protest to the myths of the American Dream, a good article.

But I keep returning to perception in all this. And to Hollywood. I have said before that the real violence of mass culture, of TV and film, is not that seen in slasher films or crime drama, but the violence of white supremacism in sentimental and maudlin melodrama. A society raised on artificial emotions and saccharine kitsch revisions of, not just history, but daily life, is going to be a sociopathic society — a society of endless regression and infantilism. If you do not recognize Lena Dunham’s Girls,or Orange is The New Black, or The Affair, or House of Cards, as shows that express white privilege, then I think you aren’t paying much attention.

Screen Life

“The casualties of this one-sided battle against peaceful protesters on a bridge were enormous, with some 300 of the estimated 400 protesting water protectors, both native people and non-native supporters, injured, 26 of them seriously. There was evidence that police were aiming rubber bullets at protesters’ heads and groins to inflict maximum pain and damage, with eight of the injured hospitalized, including a 13-year-old girl shot in the face, whose eye was reportedly damaged. { } The attack on Sunday night, which has been rightly condemned by UN human rights observers as an atrocity… Needless to say, Obama has done nothing and said nothing. So, while Trump is indeed a troubling figure, he is hardly out of line with the policies that preceded him.

…The repressive policies of the outgoing Democrat are just served up as less openly racist and bigoted than Trump’s, but the essential goals are much the same.
