McCain's cognitive capacity unchanged

WaPo and MSNBC know why Russia-gate isn't working

MSNBC finally got curious about why the Russia-gate conspiracy theory isn't working. They probably couldn't avoid it, as a recent poll revealed the depth of the disconnect between American coporate media coverage of the story and Americans' interest....

CNN fake history

According to the Counterfeit News Network, Bastille Day is the French National holiday that marks the anniversay of America's entry into the First World War to help France.   I can only assume that CNN have decided that falsifying contemporary...

Anti-Trump hypocritical hysteria

The story about Donald Trump Jr meeting with a Russian lawyer is merely the latest chapter in the endless, constantly morphing Russia-gate scandal. Hypocritical hysteria and hyperbolic rhetoric are apparently the only constants in this scandal.  ...

Russia did it loons

I have just (thanks to Tucker Carlson) become aware of David Ciciline, a depressing experience. Mr Ciciline is a member of the House of Representatives. He is the Chair of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee. He has a doctoral degree in...

Liberal hypocrisy

George Clooney, the multi-millionaire, who loves immigrants, open borders and jihadists, is leaving Europe because he fears the jihadist terrorism is dangerous.   That one sentence says all one needs to know about Hollywood liberals. Mr Clooney...

New York Times doubles down on its fake news

The latest piece of New York Times fake news was published yesterday. It cites an email, which purportedly states that the lawyer who met with Donad Trump Jr had information that was part of the "Russian government effort to aid his father's...

Colluding with Russia-gate

President Trump and President Putin finally met last Friday. Doubtless to placate his domestic critics, Trump asked Putin about the alleged Russian meddling in the US presidential election. Putin responded with: "Show me the evidence." Obviously Trump...

New York Times fake news

The New York Times, which advertises itself as the provider of factual journalism, has published a outrageously fake news story. According to the New York Times, Iran was responsible for 9/11. The Times claims:   The government has agreed to...

Criminal News Network

Donald Trump has repeatedly accused CNN of fake news. However, the network has now descended to clear criminality. CNN having discovered the originator of the Trump wrestling CNN tweet have forced him, a private citizen, on pain of being stripped of...

Beyond strange: Trump, Syria and the jihadis

So Sean Spicer surprised the Pentagon and the State Department when he announced that the White House knew that Syria was making preparations for a chemical weapons attack. Spicer threatened the Syrian government with harsh punishment should such an...

Russia-gate is absurd

The Russia-gate scandal is absurd. Its foundational claim is that Russia hacked the DNC and Podesta and provided the documents to WikiLeaks which published them to swing the presidential election for Donald Trump. All the rest of the claims,...

On the literacy and numeracy of journalists

One has to wonder about the reading ability of journalists. For months the corporate media's so called journalists have been claiming that all seventeen US intelligence agencies agreed that Russia intefered in the US presidential election. The claim...

The media and moral sense

President Trump published a tweet that insulted Mika Brzezinski. The media are up in arms. They are shocked and horrified. According to the media, Trump's tweet is completely unacceptable. Yet these are the very same people who have propagandised for...

The corporate media is the enemy

It seems that in America one can make up any nonsense and expect everyone to take it seriously.   Today, viewers of CNN's New Day were treated by Chris Cumo to a litany of insinuations that President Trump is a traitor and he is the only reason...

Russia-gate, CNN and the madness of crowds

So CNN had to retract an article, apologise, and fire three journalists for one of their endless, evidence-free Russia-gate stories. The story was shown to be false by Sputnik, which is deeply ironic as Sputnik is funded by Russia. It is ironic...

Propaganda by silence

Donald Trump's launch of tomahawk cruise missiles on Syria in April was greeted by the corporate media with cheers of approval. The attack was allegedly made in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack committed by the Syrian Arab Army. But the...

Taking the blame

According to Chuck Fake Tears Schumer, when you lose an election, you do not blame other people, you blame yourself. I guess he must have been living under a rock for the past eight months. Apparently, he is unaware that the Democrats have been busily...

Propaganda is harder than it looks

The corporate media have spent years denouncing anyone who had the audacity to point out that the coup government in the Ukraine are a bunch of Stepan Bandera idolising neo-Nazis. According to such so called news agencies as the BBC, the Guardian, the...

The people in charge are traitors

I suspect some may consider the title of this post to be hyperbole or may be even just false. But, I am neither engaging in falsehood nor am I exaggerating for effect. The leaders of the western world are determined to control the Internet. The...

More hate crime

A synagogue in Jerusalem was vandalised with Nazi swastikas. Politicians and the media were quick to make the usual denunciations. "This is a serious attack against all of us," said the Interior Minister, Arie Deri. Many others expressed their...

The threat of Islamophobia

The driving of a van into a group of people leaving the Finsbury Park Mosque has resulted in a great deal of talk about the threat of Islamophobia. Indeed, the incident has been treated very differently by the political-media elite than the way they...

CNN misjudges popular will, again

CNN's survey of the week poses the question: "Should Trump be investigated for obstruction of justice?"   I have no doubt the clever people at CNN knew (just as they knew Trump was unelectable) that the result of the poll would indict President...

Another war crime

The US has shot down a Syrian jet in Syria. The Syrian jet was attacking Islamic State. The US have attempted to justify the war crime, asserting they were defending their allies. This defence is absurd. First, the US has no authority in Syria. Its...
