Steve Lendman – Neocon WaPo Editors Urge War On Syria – 25 May 2014

StevelendmanWaPo editors long ago fell from grace. Credibility is entirely gone. Watergate-type exposes are verboten.

Editorial policy fronts for power. Extreme hawkishness defines it. New owner Jeff Bezos has CIA ties. He’s in bed with the devil.

He was bought. He was paid off. He got a $600 million CIA contract.

It’s double what he paid to buy WaPo. Late last year he said: “We look forward to a successful relationship with the CIA.” Continue reading

ActivistPost – Jefferey Jaxen – After The March Against Monsanto, Momentum Favors The People – 25 May 2014

Logo_activistpost-comIt is clear that we have just witnessed the largest single worldwide protest against a company and their products. What is also clear is the major public disgust for anything bearing the words ‘GMO’. Monsanto’s only refuge lies in massively funded mouthpieces in the form of news clips and certain public figures, combined with a legal stranglehold on scientific research and medical inquiries. Yet in the age of information, their propaganda is laughable. Meanwhile the townspeople gather, having replaced their torches and pitchforks with signs and banners. We see this time the battle being fought from a place of higher consciousness. Our weapons of choice are the devastating methods of non-compliance, civil disobedience, and free enterprise. It appears while the smoke is still clearing from what may be the final March Against Monsanto, momentum favors the people.

John Ward – Modern Myths Debunked: The Fracking Miracle And the UKip Surge – 25 May 2014

JohnWA major myth of our times: do we need to ‘Get Fracking’?

I’ve blogged before about the increasingly rapid disappearance of the fracking ‘Saviour’ myth. But although the  irrefutable evidence of hype keeps on building, the UK enthusiasts scream for it ever more loudly.

Four days ago, the US The Energy Information Administration (EIA) literally more than decimated its estimate of returns from investment in California’s Monterey Shale by 96%. Continue reading

Jon Rappoport – Elliot Roger, Santa Barbara Killer: Parallels And Numbers – 25 May 2014

jon7These are preliminary notes.

For now, they’re based on media accounts of the killing spree on May 23, in Isla Vista, California—and of course, these media accounts of mass murders should never be accepted, on their face, as ironclad facts.

Rodger is reported to be the son of Peter Rodger, a unit director of the film, Hunger Games. According to press accounts, the father specifically directed a short film within that film—a propaganda piece extoling the “new society” in which ritual sacrifice of children in the Games is a way of never forgetting the treason of rebellion/war in the “old society,” the rebellion which must never happen again.

Ukrainian Oligarch Poroshenko Winning Pres Race With Over 50% Votes – Exit Polls – 25 May 2014

RT logoUkrainian confectionary tycoon Pyotr Poroshenko is winning the presidential election in the first round of voting, having secured more than 50 percent of votes, several exit polls show.

Some 55.9 percent of voters have cast their ballots for Poroshenko in the regions of Ukraine taking part in May 25 elections, according to the national exit-poll. Another Ukrainian exit-poll organized by local TV channels claims the businessman has gathered 57.3 percent support.

Poroshenko’s main election rival, ex-PM Yulia Tymoshenko of Batkivschina (Fatherland) Party, is not likely to get a referendum on Ukraine’s accession to NATO that she called for on Sunday during a run-off ballot – as it’s highly likely that there will not be one. According to Ukrainian law, a single round of voting is enough for a candidate with more than 50 percent of votes to win.
