America’s Righteous Russia-gate Censorship

America’s Righteous Russia-gate Censorship

 

 Arriving behind the anti-Trump "resistance" and the Russia-gate
"scandal" is a troubling readiness to silence dissent in the U.S.,
shutting down information that challenges Official Narratives, writes
Robert Parry.

"The ETS has consistently been used to undermine other climate
policies, including energy efficiency and renewable energy. The example
of coal-fired power generation shows that significant power generation from coal will continue until at least 2030."

Saudi Arabia Wants to Fight Iran to the Last American | The National Interest

 

 Since the Iraq War, the Middle East has essentially been orderless—there
is no single dominant power or combination of states that can establish
and sustain a new balance. This is
precisely why it is experiencing so much instability and violence: the
absence of a clear order draws all major powers into a fierce
competition to define the new equilibrium. This is also why Israel and
Saudi Arabia have found common cause against Iran and why they have been
pushing the United States to take military action against Iran.

Riyadh’s aim is to drag the United States back into the Middle East, tilting the balance back to Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Trump Expands Police-State Crackdown on the Left

 

 

"At Trump's inauguration, around 200 protesters and journalists were
mass arrested and now face up to 70 years in prison on baseless charges.
Many other legal assaults on civil
liberties are in the works around the country, from treating
anti-fascists as "domestic terrorists", to legislation protecting
drivers who run over peaceful marchers.

To explore what this means for U.S. activists today, Abby Martin sits
down with constitutional rights lawyer Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, head of
the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, a premiere legal organization
defending protest rights. Verheyden-Hilliard has litigated, and won,
several cases against the U.S. government for mass arrests and other
types of repression."

Theresa May Jumps the Russia Bashing Band Wagon, Again… | New Eastern Outlook

 

 Once the UK Conservative Party lost its majority in the House of Commons
as a result of the recent parliamentary elections, a fact that can be
largely attributed to a string of failed
policies pursued by the Conservative government, the Labour Party
demanded the sitting Prime Minister Theresa May to resign. Ever since,
the head of the British government has been operating in panic mode.
Most British media sources agree that Prime Minister Teresa May will be
forced to leave her post no later than by the summer of 2019, citing
various sources within parliament. To somehow escape the shameful image
of a PM “that is just about to be removed”, in her response to the
former chairman of the Conservative Party, Grant Shapps, announced that
she had no plans to step down.

Saudi offer in corruption crackdown: 'cough up the cash and go home' | World news | The Guardian

Saudi offer in corruption crackdown: 'cough up the cash and go home' | World news | The Guardian

 

 

The
Guardian has been struggling to stop itself from hyperventilating over
Saudi Arabia's effective new ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (or
MBS). He's apparently a "reformist" and
"moderniser" who is going to liberate women by letting them drive and
has been conducting a mass round-up of his cousins in what everyone is
pretending is a "corruption purge" (as though the Saudi system is not
rotten with corruption from top to bottom).


But MBS's latest offer to Saudi royals, that they can free themselves
from their confinement in five-star hotels by handing over 70 per cent
of their ill-gotten gains, raises questions the Guardian and others are
not addressing. (Let's set aside the temptation to offer this as an
intriguing wealth redistribution model for own royals and bankers).


The question we should be asking is why does MBS need to fill his
coffers with all this royal money now? Is it to pay off debts incurred
by his devastating war on Yemen, which the UK and US have been helping
him with? Is it to bribe Trump with promises of more arms deals to prop
up the failing US economy? Is it perhaps to create a war chest for the
Saudis' widely predicted efforts to engineer a confrontation with
Hizbollah in Lebanon, revive its campaign against Assad in Syria, or
take on Iran in some other theatre? Or something else?

It would
be good to see the corporate media starting to deal with real-world
politics rather the world of illusions it prefers to distract us with.

 WILLIAM BOARDMAN: Yemen is a nation under siege from the air with daily
bombings. The Saudis and their allies control the air over Yemen, which
has almost no air force and almost no
air defenses. Nothing flies in or out of Yemen without Saudi permission,
which is rarely given, even for food or medical supplies. The Saudi air
force could not function without American support. US military forces
select targets, provide intelligence, re-fuel Saudi jets in mid-air and
repair them on the ground. Every bomb that falls on Yemen has American
fingerprints on it, especially the cluster bombs (another war crime)
made in America.

Intelligence watchdog urged to look at Russian influence on Brexit vote | UK news | The Guardian

Intelligence watchdog urged to look at Russian influence on Brexit vote | UK news | The Guardian

 

 

Let's
assume for a moment that all the claims about Russian interference in
shaping western public opinion are true. As we are being whipped up
again into a frenzy of hysteria by politicians and the media about
Russian "interference", this time over Britain's Brexit vote, pause to
remember: these new forms of cyber-diplomacy are being used aggressively
by *all* modern states.

The Israeli media have been reporting
for more than a decade about Israel's role in setting up cyber teams,
recruiting zealous overseas Jews and Israeli citizens who natively speak
key languages like English, French, German, Spanish and Russian. Their
role has been to promote Israel on social media and damage critics by
any means possible, including accusing them of being anti-semites. They
are definitely there to "interfere" by influencing western opinion in
Israel's favour. In fact, this is the least of it – as the Priti Patel
scandal revealed last week.

Someone once said that, when reading
the news, the first question you should ask yourself is: "Why do they
want me to know *this*?" Why do the Guardian and co want you to be
concerned about Russian interference but not Israeli interference in our
democratic processes? Why are the media concerned *only* about Russian
interference? Why is Russian interference a problem, but not US and
British interference – much of it far more dramatic than cyber-teams
going on social media - in other countries, especially Russia?


And please don't tell me this is whataboutery. Having one rule for
others and another for ourselves is the definition of hypocrisy.

As in the sound practice of medicine, the key to generating useful
political analysis lies in the art of differential diagnosis. This is
especially true in times of apparent epidemics. When seemingly similar
symptoms arise in numerous patients, or in the case of politics, in
numerous sites of social action, there is an enormous temptation to
describe the problem at hand in terms of overarching patterns of
“infection”.

 John Pilger on ISIS: Only When We See the War Criminals In Our Midst Will the Blood Begin to Dry

 

 By John Pilger

Oct 13, 2014

In transmitting President Richard Nixon's orders for a "massive"
bombing of Cambodia in 1969, Henry Kissinger said, "Anything that flies
on everything that moves".  As Barack Obama wages his seventh war
against the Muslim world since he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and
Francois Hollande promises a "merciless" attack on the rubble of Syria,
the orchestrated hysteria and lies make one almost nostalgic for
Kissinger's murderous honesty.



As a witness to the human consequences of aerial savagery - including
the beheading of victims, their parts festooning trees and fields - I
am not surprised by the disregard of memory and history, yet again. A
telling example is the rise to power of Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge, who
had much in common with today's Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
They, too, were ruthless medievalists who began as a small sect. They,
too, were the product of an American-made apocalypse, this time in Asia.



According to Pol Pot, his movement had consisted of "fewer than 5,000
poorly armed guerrillas uncertain about their strategy, tactics,
loyalty and leaders". Once Nixon's and Kissinger's B-52 bombers had gone
to work as part of "Operation Menu", the west's ultimate demon could
not believe his luck. The Americans dropped the equivalent of five
Hiroshimas on rural Cambodia during 1969-73. They leveled village after
village, returning to bomb the rubble and corpses. The craters left
giant necklaces of carnage, still visible from the air. The terror was
unimaginable. A former Khmer Rouge official described how the survivors
"froze up and they would wander around mute for three or four days.
Terrified and half-crazy, the people were ready to believe what they
were told... That was what made it so easy for the Khmer Rouge to win
the people over." A Finnish Government Commission of Inquiry estimated
that 600,000 Cambodians died in the ensuing civil war and described the
bombing as the "first stage in a decade of genocide". What Nixon and
Kissinger began, Pol Pot, their beneficiary, completed. Under their
bombs, the Khmer Rouge grew to a formidable army of 200,000.

not give. Any such fighting will only worsen the situation.

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Saudi Arabia and Israel Know They Cannot Defeat Iran, Want to Drag the US into an Uncontainable War

proxies without the active participation of the United States. That

without really appearing to do so. Both countries share the same enemies
and the same desire to eliminate these perceived enemies. And both know
they need to draw the US into the battle. Will Trump fall into this
trap?
