Sound the alarm…
Facebook’s ‘anti-fake news’ plan looks like effort to curb alternative media

Yet, a cursory glance at its funding sources is enough to set alarm bells ringing. They include Pierre Omidyar, George Soros and Washington’s National Endowment for Democracy, a CIA soft-power cutout. As it happens, regular RT readers will remember these three as the primary foreign backers of Ukraine’s Maidan coup in 2014.

Man jailed for 33 months for pirating ‘Fast & Furious’

Universal Picture’s fuzzy math comes into the equation when estimating how much they allegedly “lost,” or in the real world, never had in the first place. 

I certainly wouldn’t watch FF6 if I had to pay anything for it. They might need to pay me, and I have a Paypal account, if the studio is interested in sweetening the deal. I have the feeling that many who watched it weren’t going to pay them anything either. Fast and Furious 6? Are you shitting me?

I thought Five was masterpiece enough…

Tony Cartalucci sorts out grotesque double-standards when the regime being protested is a US client state puppet (Thailand) vs. when the regime is a US targeted enemy (Ukraine).

Violence and intimidation of protesters holds a near and dear place in the United States itself though.  Are memories that short over at the State Department?

Much concern for the Ukrainian protesters — a large chunk of whom are neonazis, apparently, and many others are “color revolution” stooges of western imperial meddling, in other words: On The Payroll.   This is the same old story, and the US media is always complicit in selling Uncle Sam’s self-interested tall tales to the rubes.
