After the advertising scandal on Antiwar.com we see more evidence that Google is directly attacking WeAreChange.

“They said it’s sensitive content.”

Colombian Report on US Military’s Child Rapes Not Newsworthy to US News Outlets

A US Psyop Troll has gone to info-war in Ukraine. His name is Joel Harding, and he has a cyber army of trolls and disinformation agents spreading propaganda about Ukraine and trying to stir up World War 3 with Russia. Yes, he’s a real piece of work.

He’s focused on Globalresearch, which has been lax in its editorial oversight. I’ve complained about articles there myself, and I am published there myself. I have no problem with journalism being held to high standards. I do have a huge problem with state-funded psyops against the people of the world and warmongering.

US Psychological Warfare in Ukraine: Targeting Online Independent Media Coverage

And there are many kinds of propaganda; let me focus on what we are mostly seeing being dumped on us by Russia …I’ll put them in a spreadsheet and send it to anyone wanting to help.  Together we’ll see if we can send that to enough people to make a case against him, embarrass him and make it impossible for his to show his face without being labeled a bad journalist, a liar, guilty of perjury, and a dirty propagandist…Photographs can be photoshopped, so can videos.  Eyewitness accounts are suspect.  Reporters stories are only as reliable as the news sources and that means they are not reliable. Even if the most reliable person in the world says something, their word can always be branded speculation, biased or that they are a paid troll, be it Russian or otherwise (although I really don’t know of any others).

People the IO army are Targeting

Topping the list in terms of importance is Congressman Alan Grayson who has been an outspoken opponent of intervention in Syria as well as Ukraine.

“The mainstream media — in print and online — did little to report on health risks to the general population or to challenge the narratives of public officials and their experts,”

News coverage of Fukushima disaster minimized health risks to general population

“It’s shocking to see how few articles discussed risk to the general population, and when they did, they typically characterized risk as low,” said Pascale, who studies the social construction of risk and meanings of risk in the 21st century. “We see articles in prestigious news outlets claiming that radioactivity from cosmic rays and rocks is more dangerous than the radiation emanating from the collapsing Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.”

One day after posting that the chief of Monsanto, India admitted to faking testing/safety dataoutright fraud — we have TV personality/science geek Bill Nye cozying up to the Frankenfood company.

What Did Monsanto Show Bill Nye to Make Him Fall “in Love” With GMOs?

Nye has stumbled into a political/corruption war that he is evidently woefully unprepared for. Science geeks can be pretty damn gullible when given so-called evidence by other science geeks. That the evidence is cooked up by a profit-driven house of lies, a very sophisticated one at that, goes right over the geek’s head. Expertise in one area (laboratory) doesn’t translate to expertise in others (deception, lies, corruption, Astroturfing, rigged testing, bribery, etc.).

In his book Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation, published just last November, Nye reiterated these points. His concern about GMOs centered mainly on unintended consequences of growing them over large expanses—he cited the example of crops engineered to resist herbicides, which have been linked pretty decisively to the decline of monarch butterflies, which rely on abundant milkweeds, which in turn have been largely wiped out in the Midwest by GMO-enabled herbicide use. Nye praised certain GMOs, such as corn engineered to repel certain insects, but concluded that “if you’re asking me, we should stop introducing genes from one species into another,” because “we just can’t know what will happen to other species in that modified species’ ecosystem.”

Now, Nye’s doubts have evidently fallen away like milkweeds under a fine mist of herbicide. In a February interview filmed backstage on Bill Maher’s HBO show (starting about 3:40 in the below video), Nye volunteered that he was working on a revision of the GMO section of Undeniable. He gave no details, just that he “went to Monsanto and I spent a lot of time with the scientists there.” As a result, he added with a grin, “I have revised my outlook, and am very excited about telling the world. When you’re in love, you want to tell the world!”

Shards of Truth in MH17 Investigation (But not at Daily Beast)

Doing what the Dutch investigation has so far declined to do – smear the separatists and Russia – the “Daily Beast” comes up with a belated hit piece, adding exactly nothing new, but taking the opportunity to repeat the US propaganda line…

‘How can you tell it’s a smear job,’ you ask?

The one link to any opposing ideas goes to a discredited piece of obvious disinformation, that infamous Photoshopped picture of an attacking plane. DB uses the smarmy jibe, “as some Russian media claimed,” to pretend they’ve actually looked at both sides of the debate. They have not and will not.

My response there won’t post, so I’m annoyed. Perhaps they have my email and/or IP address on their list as well. But their site won’t put it through, not in Chrome, Opera nor Microsoft Internet Explorer.

So here’s my fuck-you to the Daily Beast:

Propaganda laden bs. The Russian claims of a jet fighter are not because of that bit of photographic disinformation you link to. That was FUD.

The presence of a Ukraine jet fighter was seen by the eyewitnesses on the ground, who were, and are, CENSORED by the BBC (and here as well):

Further, two Russian radar monitoring stations tracked the fighter plane as it intercepted the jetliner:

The Russian organization of engineers finds the air to air — not surface to air — scenario more likely as no one saw or recorded any evidence of a BUK missile. The vapor trail lasts in the sky for up to 10 minutes and is visible for 40km.

They also tested the 30mm cannon of an SU-25 on planes and found similar damage to what is visible at the cockpit of the wreckage.

There’s more, too. The claim of a Buk missile seems to be a PSYOP prepared by the CIA aided Nazi coup regime in Kiev. It used voice recordings of a separatist commander from the previous day, when they actually did shoot down an attacking SU-25 over 60 miles from the location of the Malaysian incident. The audio was chopped up crudely and used to present the rebels as “guilty,” although I’m not sure if a mistaken incident in a war zone where the Ukraine air force regularly bombs and strafes civilians would be considered any kind of “crime.” The intentional shooting down and PSYOP to assign guilt however, by the Kiev government, is a different story.

Three Muslim students murdered in cold blood in North Carolina, but the word “terrorism” appears nowhere in the article. I see. It’s only terrorism if the victims are Europeans/Americans, or if their deaths can be exploited to further US imperial policies. It’s not too complicated. It’s called the double standard, and it is the underlying foundation of our imperialistic culture.
