Fake News Alert: US Govt Puts Out Ten Year Old Propaganda

Source: Russia Today

The Pentagon’s website no longer shows an “important intelligence” video obtained in a fatal Yemeni raid, since officials realized the footage has been available online for a decade.

On Friday, the Pentagon posted a video to the Defense Video Imagery Distribution System (DVIDS) website they said justified the operation in Yemen which cost the life of one US Navy SEAL and several Yemeni civilians.

The raid resulted in the seizure of materials and information that is yielding valuable intelligence to help partner nations deter and prevent future terror attacks in Yemen and across the world,” US Central Command (CENTCOM) declared in a statement.

President Donald Trump also hailed the raid as a success, citing the fact that “important intelligence” was obtained, which he said would “assist the US in preventing terrorism against its citizens and people around the world.”

The video released by the Pentagon depicted a man in a white robe and black mask demonstrating how to make Triacetone Triperoxide, an explosive used in the attempted “shoe-bomber” attack in 2001 and the London attacks in 2005.

Only problem is, the video clips, titled, “Lessons in How to Destroy the Cross,” were first posted to the Site Intelligence group website in 2007.

Several hours after its posting, the material was removed from the DVIDS site.

Mainstream Media Reports Truth: West No Match For Russian Military Hardware:

A leaked Ministry of Defence document reported by The Times newspaper has officially admitted that the British army would be no match for Russian military hardware in the battlefield and that Russian President Vladimir Putin would have a “significant capability edge” in state-on-state warfare.

The report, which was produced by the army for the government, warns that the UK and its NATO allies are “scrambling to catch up” with Russia, which holds a significant advantages in every key aspect of technological warfare.

Most significant perhaps, the report explains how Russia’s arsenal of weapons — which includes rocket launchers and advanced air-defence systems — are much more powerful than what any NATO member has at its disposal.

The report also says Russian intelligence has mastered the art of hacking and disturbing radar signals, meaning the effectiveness of British and NATO weaponry and aircraft operated using GPS navigation is under serious threat and the technology that should hide stealth weapons and aircraft from early warning systems might be rendered ineffective.

The report was based on research into the technology tactics Russia has used during the conflicts in Syria and Ukraine. It describes weapons and strategies that British military leaders must quickly learn to counter.

This study will be the cause of serious concern for Prime Minister Theresa May. It says Britain has spent the 21st century focusing on counterinsurgency operations against terrorist groups in the Middle East, for example, but as a result has fallen well behind when it comes to being prepared for state-on-state warfare.

“In the unlikely event of a direct confrontation between Nato and Russia, we must acknowledge that Russia has a significant capability edge over UK force elements,” the report says. Prime Minister Teresa May recently expressed “dissatisfaction” with current UK-Russia relations and vowed to work toward an improved relationship. This is the result of May’s predecessor David Cameron sycophanticall following the lead of his bum chum Barack Obama and supporting all of America’s delusional attempts to intimidate the Russians.

Putin’s covert war on western decadence

<!– http://www.spectator.co.uk/2016/10/revealed-putins-covert-war-on-western-decadence/


(Revise to compare Russian moral puritanism with western – mainly American in origin – ideological puritanism) –>


 Earlier this month
young Russian activists turned out in the streets of Moscow to protest against western decadence. Standing in aggressive military poses and dressed in uniforms of ‘Officers of Russia: Executive Youth Wing,’ they blocked access to an exhibition of photographs of nude adolescents by American photographer Jock Sturges.

‘We are here to protect people from paedophilic influences,’ one young Officer of Russia announced to journalists. Another protester sprayed the offending photographs with urine. At the same time, Russia’s state–controlled radio networks were filled with senators, Russian Orthodox priests and government officials denouncing the the exhibition (which shut down immediately after the protests) and demanding the organisers to be prosecuted.

The outcry came shortly after the Russian government banned two popular pornography sites, youporn and xhamster, on the pretext of protecting public morality.

According to some left wing commentators in the west, particularly those sympathetic to the moral libertines of the US Democratic Party and the UK’s Labour party, which both have advocated of legalising sex between adults and children as young as four, Putin’s Russia is fast becoming a very puritan place. Ever since returning to the presidency in 2012, Putin, an active member of Russia’s Orthodox Christian congregation despite his history as a KGB agent under the Soviet regime, has pursued an increasingly religious-conservative ideology both at home and abroad, defining Russia as a moral fortress against sexual licence and decadence, porn and gay rights.

This is true but should be viewed in the context of ideological puritanism in the west, where the Special Snowflake generation suffer attacks of ‘the vapours’ if they encounter ‘microaggressions,’ but a quite comfortable with the idea of allowing gay and transgender propaganda to be taught in schools to children as young as four.

Putin’s puritanism has developed under the influence of two of the most prominent conservative ideologues in Russia: his personal confessor Bishop Tikhon Shevkunov and the geopolitical thinker Alexander Dugin. Bishop Tikhon has long been a critic of the decadence of the modern western world — and his Every-day Saints and the Other Stories was the best–selling Russian book of 2012, rivalled for sales only by Fifty Shades of Grey. Dugin is the architect of Eurasianism, an ideology which holds that Russia has a special historical destiny to save the world from the corrupt moral values of western capitalism.

The influence of the Russian Orthodox church on public life is growing fast, thanks to Kremlin patronage. The church’s preferred instrument of control is a draconian law criminalising ‘offending the feeling of religious believers’ that was passed in the wake of a protest by the feminist punk group Pussy Riot in Moscow’s Christ the Saviour Cathedral in 2012. This may seem obnoxious to western liberals but should be seen as a parallel to European and American acts outlawing ‘hate speech’ which are just as oppressive and illiberal.
 
In March in Stavropol, south Russia, criminal charges were brought against Viktor Krasnov after he wrote ‘God does not exist’ on the VKontakte social network, Russia’s version of Facebook. Krasnov was ordered to spend over a month undergoing examinations in a psychiatric ward before he was finally deemed sane enough to stand trial, and the case continues. Now that is out of order, free speech must always be defended, but let’s not forget that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, former British Prime Ministers David Cameron, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have all spoken of criminalising the criticism of climate change alarmism or government policy on globalisation and immigration.

Polls show that most ordinary Russians hold deeply illiberal views on social issues (for example, 21 per cent want to see homosexuals ‘liquidated’, and another 37 per cent advocate ‘separating them from society’ — while only 11 per cent believe homosexuality to be a ‘sexual orientation from birth, which merits the same rights as heterosexual orientation’). And historical polling data from the recently shuttered Levada research centre shows that Russian attitudes on gays, blacks, Jews, foreigners, capital punishment and the like have remained pretty unenlightened since the fall of the Soviet Union.

This echoes the disconnect in European Union members and other liberal democracies including the USA, between the estblishment (politicans and civil servants, academics, media luvvies and public sector professionals) and the masses. In Russia however they liberal fuckwittery is confined to intellectuals.

‘In this epoch of cyborgs, hybrids, mutants, chimeras and virtual reality, mankind will be saved only by tradition,’ Alexander Dugin said in his latest lecture on the Tsargrad TV station. According to him ‘all modernism — the idea of progress, development, the so-called scientific view of the world, democracy and liberalism [is] a Satanic idea that spells a death sentence for humanity… the only defence is asserting God, the church, the empire, the congregation of the faithful, the state, and the people’s traditions.’
Dugin, once a marginal figure, has come closer to the political mainstream as Russia has veered deeper into isolation and nationalism in the wake of the annexation of Crimea in March 2014. 

‘This is a state that cynically uses Orthodox Christianity as a surrogate ideology to prop up its authority,’ argues Brian Whitmore, author of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty’s influential blog The Power Vertical. ‘It’s a state where fealty to the Orthodox church, or at least publicly proclaiming fealty, becomes a surrogate for patriotism… and it’s a state where challenging the authority of the church is akin to an act of treason.’

Whitmore is correct but fails to compare Russian religious authoritarianism with western ideological authoritarianism. Consider the vile attacks made by those in western societies who try to disguise their authoritarianism by claiming to be ‘left wing’ and progressive. British motormouth Katie Hopkins, UKIP leader Nigel Farage, TV presenter Piers Morgan, journalist and climate change sceptic James Delingpole, gay conservative writer Milo Yiannopolous, and glamour model Katie Price have all been subjected to hate attacks for expressing opinions that do not conform to the politically correct orthodoxy, in the USA anybody who supports Christian values or questions politically correct thinking is going to be crucified. So we are really looking at civilisations that are heading in opposite directions. And that does not bode well for future prospects of peaceful cooperation.  

MEANWHILE IN THE GLOBAL CAPITAL OF CRAZY

California Legalizes Child Prostitution, Kids Can Now be Sex Workers

Governor Moonbeam has just decriminalized prostitution for minors in California.
He claims that it is meant to make life after human trafficking easier for those forced into it. But who says that the consequences of this move won’t make pedophilia more acceptable? Our government officials have forgotten that their actions will cause dire consequences for others. Or maybe they do know that and they just don’t care.
From DownTrend.com:

This is absolutely astounding. The liberal numbnuts who run the State of California just decriminalized child prostitution. There is no misinterpretation of what they’ve done here. It is no longer illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to engage in prostitution or to solicit money for sex. Like I said, kids in California are now able to legally work as prostitutes.

CBS Sacramento reports that space cadet Governor Jerry Brown signed SB1322 into law on Tuesday. Among other things, this bill exempts minors from the current California prostitution laws. In other words, a person under the age of 18 can no longer be arrested for violating prostitution laws that apply to adults.
I was thinking that maybe the news was reporting this wrong or perhaps they were leaving some stuff out that makes this sound less terrible than it is, but I read the actual wording of the bill and this is what is says:
Existing law makes it a crime to solicit or engage in any act of prostitution. Existing law makes it a crime to loiter in any public place with the intent to commit prostitution. This bill would make the above provisions inapplicable to a child under 18 years of age who is alleged to have engaged in conduct that would, if committed by an adult, violate the above provisions.

Turkey Will “Definitely” Join Ground Operation In Syria, Accuses Russia Of “War Crimes”

We have expressed our surprise at the forbearance of Russia’s leaders in the face of repeated provocative actions from the USA and Turkey. It seems however, Putin’s patience with the infantile Obama and the deranged Erdogan may not last much longer.Here are the latest headlines out of Russia where the defense ministry is at wit’s end with the Turks.

RUSSIAN DEFENCE MINISTRY SAYS ‘TERRORISTS’ IN SYRIA’S IDLIB AND ALEPPO PROVINCES CONTINUE TO RECEIVE WEAPONS AND REINFORCEMENTS FROM TURKISH TERRITORY

TURKEY IS LAUNCHING ‘MASSED’ ARTILLERY STRIKES ON SYRIAN GOVT FORCES AND ‘SYRIA’S PATRIOTIC OPPOSITION’ – RIA CITES RUSSIAN DEFENCE MINISTRY

Turkey shelled Syria for a fourth consecutive day on Tuesday as Ankara steps up its support for anti – Assad rebels in the face of attacks by the Kurdish YPG. “As many as 150 terrorists were killed during the 4-day-long shelling targeting PYD points,” the pro-government Yeni Safak wrote today, adding that “the PYD, backed by both the US and Russia, is working with President Bashar al-Assad to control areas along the Turkish border.”

The move by Russia and Iran to encircle Aleppo and cut rebel supply lines to Turkey has allowed the YPG to advance on towns near the border, effectively consolidating the group’s grip on northern Syria, where they’ve been highly successful at holding large swaths of territory.That constiutes a major setback for Ankara where President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is desperate to kill popular support for the pro-Kurdish HDP which, at least in the Turkish government’s view is merely the political arm of the PKK.

Erdogan doesn’t distinguish between the PKK (which both Turkey and the US officially designate as a terror group) and the YPG. The US, on the other hand, openly supports the Syrian Kurds and has backed their advances with airstrikes (they can hardly do otherwise having been the prime mover in the creation of an autonomous Kurdistan in Iraqi territory. Ankara fears that if the YPG are allowed to bridge the territory they control east of the Euphrates with territory they control west of the river, they will effectively establish a proto-state on the border which would embolden the PKK to try something similar in southeast Turkey where Turkish Kurds are already pushing for autonomy.

 There are good reasons to suspect that Turkey will not only persist in the shelling of Azaz from gun emplacements within its own territory, but will in fact invade Syria.

On Tuesday we got still more indications that a major escalation in Syria is imminent when Turkey said it would “definitely” participate in a ground operation. “It’s impossible to end the war without it,” an official told Bloomberg, speaking on the condition of anonymity. You see how that works? It’s the same logic that France employed when officials declared that the best way to halt the refugee crisis is to bomb Syria. It’s “impossible” to the end the war in Syria without … going to war in Syria. And of course we told you last monthe The White House was not only aware of this plan but was complicit in it.

The official also said there was no plan for a “unilateral” ground operation by Turkey or Saudi Arabia, but according to Yeni Safak newspaper’s Ankara correspondent, Turkey is planning to send troops 10km into Syria to establish “a safe zone.”

Meanwhile, Moscow and Ankara continue to accuse one another of being terrorists. What should be clear from the above is that there’s no telling who the Islamist rebels fighting to keep the Azaz corridor open are. It’s the same mishmash of Sunni militants fighting everywhere else in western Syria and though ISIS are not active in the area it seems likely that al Nusra and al Qaeda elements are present as well. As Russian PM Dmitri Medvedev recently told TIME, “they’re all bandits.”

Of course Russia isn’t entirely innocent. Although it’s impossible to verify reports, it seems possible that several Russian strikes hit hospitals on Monday, killing scores of civilians including some women and children. Ankara of course seized on the opportunity to accuse the Russians of being terrorists. “These attacks that we strongly condemn are unconscionable and obvious war crime under international law,” a statement from the Turkish foreign ministry reads. ” What is collateral damage when done by American drones becomes terrorism when done by America’s enemies.

The conclusion from all of this is simple: escalation imminent.

GMO Giants Hired ‘Attack Dog’ to Discredit 14-yo School Girl Activist Who Exposed Their Dodgy Science

monsanto-1Big Biotech versus independent farmers (image source)

Biotech Industry, with the collaboration of academics, elected politicians and government employees have planned to conquer the food industry and replace natural seed stock with genetically modified (GM) products. Monsanto and other multinational corporations infiltrated the highest levels of federal agencies so their patented Franken-foods could be rubber-stamped for market.

The Industry has been exposed repeatedly for using bogus science, while preventing independent research until the GM crop is approved for sale. They spend millions on advertising to persuade the public that their food is safe for human health and the environment.

The tide is turning, though, as alternative media provides an avenue to counter industry propaganda and bring independent research to light. And it’s working, as evidenced by a recent poll finding that nearly 90% of consumers want to know if their food is GM or not. Thankfully, they were unsuccessful in getting the federal government to ban states from labeling GM food.

Rachel Parent has played a big role in educating others with her Kids Right to Know campaign. Her accomplishments include debating Kevin O’Leary on national television, giving a speech at a TEDx event on the right to know, and meeting with former Canadian Health Minister Rona Ambrose.

Russia Today has an interview with a journalist who spent two years fighting alongside the Free Syrian Army rebels that have been trying to depose the Assad regime while defending themselves against ISIS and Al Nusra extremists.

The transcript of Sophie Shevardnadze’s interview with Bilal Abdul Kareem, whose video reports expose the ‘moderate rebels’ referred to as the west’s potential allies by Barack Obama and David Cameron.

The soundtrack of the inverview (or reading the transcript – Ms Shevardnadze’s accent and poor quality sound may make the invterview a difficult watch) will contain a few shocks for people foolish enough to believe the ‘moderate rebels’ bullshit, these guys are as bad as the religious fanatics, if not (morally at least) worse, because they do not have an insane religious belief to justify their cruelty and ruthlessness.

NATO violates treaty to support the Evil Empire

Since the Russians got fed up of Obama using his ISIS puppets to attack Russia’s long time ally Syria and exposed American claims they were fighting the ragbag army of fanatics, criminals, mercenaries and ragheads in the middle east and decided to kick the shit out of the rebeles before their fantatical version of Islam destabilized Europe, The Ministry Of Truth (i.e. government public relations departments and all of western print and broadcast media) has turned the outrage generator up to eleven in their efforts to demonize Russia and its leader Vladimir Putin.

What is not mentioned of course is that starting with Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003, every American led intervention in the domestic affairs of sovereign nations has violated a legally binding treaty signed in 1997 between NATO and the Russian Federation.

You can look at the opening paragraphs below and there’s a link to the full document below the text. And if we are lucky Professor WantWar who claims he lectures in Stupid at the University of Fantasia and who has been on the wrong side of every foreign policy debate since 2008 (hey Prof, we’re still waiting for that irrefutable evidence that the Russians shot down Flight MH17, or for proof of a Russian military invastion of Ukraine: Oh sorry, I forgot in your warped world view sending truckloads of food and medical supplies counts as hostile military action because Russia did it while the FUKUS axis bombing the crap out of a small nation like Libya can be considered humanitarian aid.*)

Here’s that treaty:

Founding Act

on Mutual Relations, Cooperation and Security between NATO and the Russian Federation signed in Paris, France

  • 27 May. 1997

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization and its member States, on the one hand, and the Russian Federation, on the other hand, hereinafter referred to as NATO and Russia, based on an enduring political commitment undertaken at the highest political level, will build together a lasting and inclusive peace in the Euro-Atlantic area on the principles of democracy and cooperative security.

NATO and Russia do not consider each other as adversaries. They share the goal of overcoming the vestiges of earlier confrontation and competition and of strengthening mutual trust and cooperation. The present Act reaffirms the determination of NATO and Russia to give concrete substance to their shared commitment to build a stable, peaceful and undivided Europe, whole and free, to the benefit of all its peoples. Making this commitment at the highest political level marks the beginning of a fundamentally new relationship between NATO and Russia. They intend to develop, on the basis of common interest, reciprocity and transparency a strong, stable and enduring partnership.

This Act defines the goals and mechanism of consultation, cooperation, joint decision-making and joint action that will constitute the core of the mutual relations between NATO and Russia.

NATO has undertaken a historic transformation — a process that will continue. In 1991 the Alliance revised its strategic doctrine to take account of the new security environment in Europe. Accordingly, NATO has radically reduced and continues the adaptation of its conventional and nuclear forces. While preserving the capability to meet the commitments undertaken in the Washington Treaty, NATO has expanded and will continue to expand its political functions, and taken on new missions of peacekeeping and crisis management in support of the United Nations (UN) and the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), such as in Bosnia and Herzegovina, to address new security challenges in close association with other countries and international organisations. NATO is in the process of developing the European Security and Defence Identity (ESDI) within the Alliance. It will continue to develop a broad and dynamic pattern of cooperation with OSCE participating States in particular through the Partnership for Peace and is working with Partner countries on the initiative to establish a Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council. NATO member States have decided to examine NATO’s Strategic Concept to ensure that it is fully consistent with Europe’s new security situation and challenges.

Russia is continuing the building of a democratic society and the realisation of its political and economic transformation. It is developing the concept of its national security and revising its military doctrine to ensure that they are fully consistent with new security realities. Russia has carried out deep reductions in its armed forces, has withdrawn its forces on an unprecedented scale from the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the Baltic countries and withdrawn all its nuclear weapons back to its own national territory. Russia is committed to further reducing its conventional and nuclear forces. It is actively participating in peacekeeping operations in support of the UN and the OSCE, as well as in crisis management in different areas of the world. Russia is contributing to the multinational forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
