BLOOMBERG TO PAY HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE $2,500 A MONTH TO PRAISE HIM ON THEIR PERSONAL SOCIAL MEDIA FEEDS: REPORT

 

Michael Bloomberg is the most disgusting, dangerous, evil, megalomaniacal piece of shit of our lifetimes.  Shilling for him is a deal with the devil. Make him go away.

Professional lying scumbags…

Israeli Facebook warriors…

Hasbara,” literally “explaining,” is the term used in Israel for government propaganda aimed at overseas audiences.

A video accompanying the Ynet report shows rows of students beavering away at computers in a hall with a sign on its door saying “Advocacy Room” in English. In Hebrew, it says “Hasbara war room.”

Last year a “covert” Israeli government initiative came to light which planned to pay students for spreading propaganda online.

“The whole point of such efforts is to look like they are unofficial, just every day people chatting online,” Israel expert Dena Shunra told The Electronic Intifada.

“But in fact, these are campaigns of organized lying, orchestrated with government-approved talking points and crowdsourced volunteers and stipend recipients,” Shunra added.

“War Room” to Sell Gaza Massacre on Facebook

Unlike those shills, no one pays me to say anything about these immoral land grabs and massacres. It’s only my conscience and ability to rationally analyze the evidence that drives this blog.

“Pandora’s False Promises

Pandora’s Promise, is a new pro-nuclear propaganda documentary released theatrically in the US in July 2013. It is funded in part by individuals with a vested interest in seeing the development of new reactors and is seemingly a vehicle by which to raise the profile of the anti-environmental Oakland think tank, The Breakthrough Institute, whose personnel feature prominently in the film. Despite the film’s premise and early claim that it features “a growing number of leading former anti-nuclear activists” who now support nuclear energy, no one in the film ever led the anti-nuclear movement. Nor was any credible, independent scientific or medical professional with expertise in the areas covered in the film consulted or featured. Beyond Nuclear has bird-dogged the film from the beginning, and has produced numerous critiques. We have also published a definitive report – Pandora’s False Promises: Busting the pro-nuclear propaganda – and a two-page synopsis. These documents address virtually all of the myths, lies and omissions typically found in pro-nuclear rhetoric and are intended to address these long after Pandora’s Promise fades into deserved oblivion.”

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
  • Nuclear power, no matter the reactor design, cannot address climate change intime. In order to displace a significant amount of carbon-emitting fossil fuel generation, another 1,000 to 1,500 new 1,000+ Megawatt reactors would need to come on line worldwide by 2050, a completely prohibitive proposition.
  • So-called “Generation IV” reactor designs, including “fast” or “small modular reactors,” are the last gasp of a failing industry. Earlier versions of the fast breeder reactor were commercial failures and safety disasters. The ever soaring costs make nuclear power a financial quagmire for investors, and expensive new prototypes commercially unattractive.
  • Proponents of the Integral Fast Reactor, overlook the exorbitant costs; proliferation risks; that it theoretically “transmutes,” rather than eliminates, radioactive waste; that it is decades away from deployment; and that its use of sodium as a coolant can lead to fires and explosions.
  • The continued daily use of nuclear power means continued risk of radiation exposure to surrounding populations, especially children who are vulnerable to leukemia when living close to reactors. Ionizing radiation released by nuclear power plants, either routinely or in large amounts, causes cellular damage and mutations in DNA, which in turn can lead to cancers and other  illnesses.
  • Low-ball health predictions after nuclear accidents are not reliable. The 2005 IAEA/WHO Chernobyl health report has been discredited for suppressing key data to justify low death predictions that do not stand up to scientific scrutiny. Furthermore, the IAEA has a mandate to promote nuclear technology. Given the long latency period of cancers caused by radiation exposure, it is too soon to accurately predict the ultimate health impacts from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, although some health effects are already being observed.
  • The example of Germany — and numerous studies — demonstrates that both coal and nuclear can be phased out in favor of renewable energy. Jobs are more plentiful and enduring in the renewable sector. In Germany, renewable energy already employs 380,000 people compared to 30,000 in the nuclear sector.
  • The argument that only nuclear provides “carbon-free,” base load energy is out of date. Geothermal and offshore wind energy are capable of delivering reliable base load power with a smaller carbon footprint than nuclear energy. Energy efficiency is also an essential component in displacing nuclear and coal.

The more crap I read from Bigelow and Boal…

…the better Leni Riefenstahl looks in comparison.  After all the German filmmaker was merely being patriotic and supportive of her government.  She did not endorse, or worse — make light of — the torture of human beings.  The Nazi enterprise was in its infancy at the production of Triumph of the Will, prior to the atrocities we think of today.

Boal and Bigelow have no such defense.

“…Mark Boal, also a “Zero Dark Thirty” producer, accepting the prize for Best Film. Boal tackles the torture debate more directly, but not before having some fun with it. “‘Apparently, the French government will be investigating the accuracy of ‘Les Mis,'” he cracked, before noting that he and Bigelow had been eager to comment on the situation. ‘Some of you may have wondered if we would have liked to comment on that coverage,’ he added. ‘The answer is yes.” His position? “If anybody’s asking, we stand by the film.'”

Complete disregard for the accurate charges of fabricating a case for torture and of filming CIA lies as truth.  These Good Germans put Riefenstahl to shame.  These are the words of shameless, loathesome propagandists without consciences.

Naomi Wolf called out Bigelow in The Guardian:

A letter to Kathryn Bigelow on Zero Dark Thirty’s apology for torture

“By peddling the lie that CIA detentions led to Bin Laden’s killing, you have become a Leni Riefenstahl-like propagandist of torture”

While Naomi Wolf makes this categorical comparison, I’m ready to go one further and say these two, pictured above, are sufficiently worse than Riefenstahl and her pro-German government propaganda film.  With these ugly Americans  presenting America’s actions to the world, and lavishly praised by “critics” around the nation, no one should be wondering “why they hate us” for quite some time to come.
