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...

Michelle Carter: where are the protests

On Friday, Michelle Carter was found guilty of manslaughter. She had sent text messages to her boyfriend, encouraging him to carry out his expressed intent to commit suicide. The facts in the case are not in dispute, but the law is (or more...

Russophobia results in delusional thinking

James Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence, outlined his thinking to the Australian National Press Club. In his talk he explained how Russia is a threat to the United States, and in doing so exposed the completely delusional thinking...

Huffington Post called for Trump's execution

An article in the Huffington Post called for the execution of President Donald Trump and his administration. The author, Jason Fuller, argues that Trump is guilty of treason. He claims that Trump's policies have provided aid and comfort to the enemy....

Mass hysteria

It is possible for people to see things that do not exist. It is even possible for a society to see things that do not exist. The phenomena have various names. Mass hysteria is one such name. America is demonstrating to the world that it is in the...

Yet more fake news

The corporate media has been full of completely false news reports about the Navalny protests in Russia. CNN, the BBC, Fox News, the Guardian, the Washington Post, etc have all presented completely false reports about yesterday's protests.   CNN...

Comey and the leaks

In my previous post on Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, I discussed what he had said. In this post, I would like to focus on what he managed to not say, for certain silences and contradictions in his testimony may be even...

The UK election

Theresa May called the election three years early because she believed it would result in a landslide victory for her party. This judgement was based on the collective wisdom of the elite. The whole of the political-media elite knew that Jeremy Corbyn...

Comey tries to walk a fine line - and fails

Comey tried to walk a very tight line in his testimony before the Senate on Thursday. He tried to claim that President Trump had attempted to obstruct justice, whilst not saying Trump had attempted to obstruct justice. He tried to present himself as a...

Oh the irony

The people at CNN must have had an irony bypass operation. Their latest nonsense narrative claims that Russia hacked Al Jazeera to plant the fake news that sparked the diplomatic and economic conflict between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Qatar....

War crimes in Mosul

It is not long ago that the political-media elite of the west were foaming with moral outrage about alleged war crimes. The US ambassadors to the UN, first Samantha Power and later Nikki Haley made theatrical demonstrations of their moral outrage and...

Qatar accused of supporting terrorism

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (and a number of its allies) has accused Qatar of supporting terrorism. The accusation is, of course, true. Qatar has a long history of supporting jihadist terrorism. However, so does the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In fact,...

CNN caught creating fake news

In its desire to promote its pro-Islamic propaganda, CNN decided to stage a group of muslims protesting the London jihadist terror attack, which resulted in the deaths of seven innocent people and dozens more injured.   Unfortunately for CNN,...

A carbon-free lifestyle

On CNN's the State of the Union, Al Gore just said: "I live a carbon-free lifestyle." Jake Tapper nodded approvingly.   Who would have thought a carbon-free lifestyle involved being a billionaire, living in mansions, jet-setting and generally...
