As Long As Mass Media Propaganda Exists, Democracy Is A Sham

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone via Medium.com,

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll has reportedly found that a majority of Americans believe the completely discredited narrative that the Russian government paid Taliban-linked fighters to kill the occupying forces of the US and its allies in Afghanistan.

“A majority of Americans believe that Russia paid the Taliban to kill U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan last year amid negotiations to end the war, and more than half want to respond with new economic sanctions against Moscow, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Wednesday,” Reuters reports.

Overall, 60% of Americans said they found reports of Russian bounties on American soldiers to be ‘very’ or ‘somewhat’ believable, while 21% said they were not credible and the rest were unsure,” says Reuters.

Those 21 percent are objectively correct: the story is not credible, and it’s not even close. Gareth Porter shows in The Grayzone how the “Bountygate” narrative is so utterly baseless that even US intelligence agencies have dismissed it, Joe Lauria of Consortium News explains how it doesn’t make any sense on its face, and FAIR’s Alan MacLeod breaks down the appalling journalistic malpractice that went into circulating this incredibly thinly sourced story to the mainstream public.

The story advances no solid facts or verified information. What it does advance is pre-existing imperialist agendas like remaining in Afghanistan, killing the last of the remaining nuclear deals with Moscow, and manufacturing public support for new Russia sanctions … Continue reading >>>

Re-Branding Dissent – The Quiet Destruction Of Democracy
Many people, all the contributors to this publication among them, fear that democracy is being destroyed. OK, OK, hipsters will say but ‘we’ve never had democracy’, or, ‘it was destroyed long ago’, but left wing deceit aside, I think its worth actually thinking about how, many forms of democratic expression, effective dissent and peaceful self-determination are being outlawed and abolished in a sustained attack on free speech and civil rights.

Democracy: Does It have A Future Or Has Global Totalitarianism Won?
The General Election in Greece (January 2014) could have much wider effects than most elections in small nation, the vote could decide the future of the European Union and have a major breaing on whether democracy can survive the push towards government by a global, corporate oligarchy.

Bizarre report from Afghanistan by BBC

In the ten years this blog has existed we have seen BBC News become less an impartial reporter of events in Britain and the world and more like the Ministry Of Truth, the propaganda department of the Big Brother Regime in George Orwell’s 1984.

About the only people who believe BBC reports are politicians, tax – eaters (public sector workers, schoolteachers, academics, NHS managers and professionals and the luvvies of the meeja and celebrity industry) But occasionally even the BBC cannot cover up the truth in service of its corporate masters agenda. This report from Afghanistan on how the city of Kunduz, recently overrun by the resurgent Taliban and according to official reports, almost immediately won back by Afghan Government troops is an example:

from BBC News:

Rights groups have expressed concern for the large numbers of civilians trapped in the Afghan city of Kunduz, amid fierce fighting between the Taliban and government troops.The government has accused the Taliban of raping and killing civilians after it seized the northern city this week. The Taliban rejected the accusations.

Both sides are claiming to be in control of much of the city.

But one resident of Kunduz told the BBC that he disputes the government’s claims that the city has been retaken, saying he could see no evidence of government troops there.

So have The Taliban been kicked out of Kunduz, was there even a counter attack by government troops, did the Taliban even manage to gain control of the city? You guess is as good as ours. Everything you read or hear in news these days is carefully managed propaganda.

Only 5 Percent Of Russian Air Strikes Hitting Islamic, British Defence Secretary Lies
After an amazing outburst from the delusional Brack Obama left the United Nations General Assembly in stunned silence because Obama has accused Russia and China of all the recent breaches of international law of which the USA is demonstably guilty, the propaganda departments of western governments seem to have totally lost their grip on reality.

Former Army Chief Talks Bollocks About ISIS

Former chief of the British Army, General Waddack – Hunt (OK, Lord Richards really) has supported a call from the Defence for Turkey to become involved in defeating ISIS in Syria and Iraq, but has gone even further by insisting the war could be over in six months if Britain and America deployed troops.

Lord Richards’s comments were made during an interview with Huffington Post, when he expressed concern that current Western strategy of air strikes and arming local resistance groups may not be enough to stop ISIS, or even to save the Kurds who are in danger of being overrun by the Islamic State.

Lord Richards said: “The idea that you can make [the Free Syrian Army or the Peshmerga] successful in the time we have available to us… without much more active and fulsome western involvement is, I think, naive”.

Indeed, were Western democracies to take a less distant approach to the problem, Richards believes “if Western boots were on the ground, if western armies were to be applied to the problem [of Islamic State], it could be over in six months”.

Boggart Blog will demolish this idiot’s argument with one word:

Obama cornered over Syria

Everyone who pays the slightest attention to world events must know by now the American Republican Party are a cunch of bunts. Oh yes, they knew what was going to happen in the US economy which is exactly why they picked John (Mr. Magoo) McCain and Mitt (Captain Underpants) Romney as their last two Presidential candidates.

Obamessiah cult members may have written off The Republicans but reports of their death have been exaggerated. In political terms they’re playing a blinder on the Syrian crisis:

‘On Sunday, the Republican Senators and Congressmen pressed Barack Obama to take further action in Syria, saying without intervention, the entire region will “fall into chaos” by the end of the year, Reuters reported.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) said that Washington could bomb the Syrian air bases with cruise missiles but cautioned against sending in troops.

“You don’t need to go deep into Syria to do that,” Graham said, adding, “If you could neutralize the air advantage the Syrian government has over the rebels, I think you could turn the tide of battle pretty quickly.”‘

So now, with the US military bogged down in Afghanistan and actively involved in over 40 African and middle eastern nations, Obama has to act of look like a limp dick as Republicans excoriate him. but if he acts he must be prepared to deal with the backlash from Russia, China and Iran and get the USA involved in another endless war.

Poor Bammy, even Blair or Berlusconi could not wriggle out of this one. Looks like in the New World Order, getting the most votes in elections means you lose.

Obama Talks The Talk But Dare Not Visit Afghanistan In Daylight

from the Boggart Blog newsdesk:
Todays mainstream news papers and broadcast bulletins are full of the Superhero Barack Obama’s daredevil visit to Afghanistan. The man who liberated Libya single handed and took out Osama Bin Laden (or a Pakistani penioner with a beard) in a daring solo raid behind enemy lines stormed into the Afghan capital, Kabul, made a speech that left hundreds of Taliban fighters dead and saw others fleeing for the mountains with their arses on fire then left again all in the space of fifteen minutes. He would have stayed longer but had to get back, put out a forest fire, shore up a mountainside that was about to collapse, catch a kid who had fallen over the rail and was about to plunge into the Niagra rapids and stop a huge dam from bursting and washing away several small communities in Coloado.

No, but seriously folks …

After landing at Bagram Airbase around 10pm local time, the Prez – Dude was delivered by a low-level, cover-of-darkness “helicopter insertion” (he got arse fucked by a helicopter? Now wonder the limp wristed one was smiling) to the Presidential Palace where a ten-page proposal which contains no specifics on funding or troop levels was signed around midnight.

So secret was the visit that the White House spent the day frantically trying to deny leaked news of Obama’s imminent arrival after the puppet government in Kabul blabbed to western media. This was yet another example of seamless co-operation between Afghan and Coalition governments that perfectly ilustrates the readiness of President Khazi’s government to provide stability and security after the allied withdrawal..

After the signing, there was just time for Mr Obama to duck into a hangar and make a rousing address to the bewildered troops who have a big enough problrem trying to anticipate which direction the next enemy attack will next come from without having to worry about which direction the next visit by Obama, Cameron or Sarkozy will come from. Then he made an address to the American nation reminding them how he was single handedly routing the Taliban on a daily basis. This was, of course, another perfect excuse for the President to remind everyone of his heroic decision to leave the golf course and sit in a corner of the Situation Room as the Navy SEALs hit the alleged terrorist compund a year ago.

Obama’s autocue, said by many to be the real voice of the Presidency, is a past master at makeing a vitue out of absurdity, and this occasion was no exception as The One mouthed meaningless cliches about “new light” breaking on the horizon for Afghanistan, even as he gestured to the “pre-dawn darkness” in which he was speaking. Even the Presidential autocue’s rhetorical skills couldn’t disguise the tail-between-the-legs ‘optics’ of the event. It was as big a public disaster as news of the Administration’s billion – dollar gift to the Taliban or Michelle Obama’s $30,000 spending spree in posh knicker shop Agent Provocateur.

Administration officials tried to suggest that the visit’s unusual timing was for the benefit of the US TV networks, a piece of spin so feeble it does not merit a response.

There is no doubting the wisdom of the President’s security advisors in keeping the visit secret and under cover of darkness, it is only two weeks ago that the Haqqani network mounted a co-ordinated 18-hour assault on the heart of Kabul. Unfortunaterly despite the gung ho speech the message of this trip was clear and will not be missed by the west’s enemies: after a decade of expending blood and money in Afghanistan, the US President does not dare visit the place broad daylight.

Boggart Blog Reveals Cameron / Obama Afghan Exit Strategy

It is widely predicted that plans for UK and US troops to leave their combat role in Afghanistan next year, are expected to be high on the agenda when David Cameron meets Barack Obama this week.

Boggart Blog can exclusively reveal the strategy the allies will adopt to get out of Afghanistan without actually admitting the two most high tech military powers in the world got their arses kicked by a bunch of bearded ragheads.

RUN AWAY

Sadly the time has long passed when the allies could have made their exit with honour, the war was a farrago from its outset and in the last few years has become a debacle. We can only say the dishonour of defeat and surrender falls on the politicians and bureaucrats. The soldiers who served there, who have risked and lost their lives in that blighted land deserves our total respect and the full support of their governments as they try to adjust to civilian life after their experiences.

Milliband in Afghanistan.

Labour leader Ed Milliband has been visiting troops in Afghanistan. This was the subject of a radio phone in I was listening to last night.

“If you were a squaddie dodging bullets in Afghanistan,” the presenter asked listeners, “what would you have said to Ed Milliband?”

Well I didn’t phone in but my answer was better that those from people who did. Yous see as a squaddie I would have said nothing to Ed Milliband as he met the troops.

Instead I would have turned to the watching Afghans, militant Muslims to a man, pointed at Milliband and started screaming “Jew, Jew…”

That would have sent Ed running back to London with his arse on fire (literally).

The Bucket Of Water Song

I wrote a long blog for today but the news about the next financial crisis, Afghanistan, unemployment, rising prices and all the heartache and the thousand shocks that flesh is heir to made me so depressed I couldn’t be arsed typing it.

So I cheered myself up with a bit of nostalgia from the 1970s, a time when we did not have mobile phones and MP3 players and designer labels and all the other status affirming shite but someow were happier and nicer to each other.

Political Correctness Gone Military

Bored with the election? We are. In an election that is more Presidential than ever before with the cranks and nutters pushed aside as attention focuses on the party leaders we are being asked to get enthusiastic about three guys who between them have less charisma then leprosy.

So we look past politics to something else today and if we were the Daily Mail or Daily Express we would be running this story under a Political Correctness gone mad headline. If we were The Guardian on the other hand we would be screaming about a milestone in the advance of women’s rights. As it is we are Boggart Blog so we will lead with the banner headline:

WANT TO KNOW HOW FUCKING FUCKED EVERYTHING REALLY ARE?

Yes, officialdom has set a new world record in stupidity. Later today a tribunral will meet to decide how much compensation a young female soldier and single mother will get because she was discriminated against sexually and racially. Experts estimate the award could be in the region of £100,000 which is about What the people wounded in Afghanistan get for losing a leg. But hey, what’s a leg compared to somebody’s feelings.

tHE WOMAN’S complaint arose fromn her being dsciplined for not appearing on parade while on active service. Now in the army failing to turn up on parade is really serious, not quite as bad as bad as shooting your commanding office and of course nowhere near as bad as shooting an ememy who might be threatening to wipe out your entire platoon but who happens to have dark skin, but very very bad. It is all about instilling the discipline needed in combat situation where soldiers need to be totally committed members of the unit because everybody’s life depends on it.

Being on parade is about being where you should be when you should be there and ready to do your job.

Can you imagine out in Afghanistan a British officer (named Rupert or Jeremy – they all are) walking towards enemy lines carrying a flag of truce to ask the Taliban commander, “I say old chap, I know its a monstrous imposition but do you mind awfully delaying your attack for an hour, Lance Corporal Sillytits hasn’t finished bathing the baby.
