Facebook Frontline: Kiev Calls Up ‘Online Army’ Amid Information War – 25 February 2015

RT logoA day after Ukraine announced it is joining the information war by creating an ‘online army,’ the Information Policy Ministry entered into its first controversy. It has reportedly called on bloggers to create accounts to spread information useful to Kiev.

The ministry has begun accepting applications from people wanting to join the online army. Once users are registered, they reportedly receive instructions on how to proceed.

One of the users published the first set of instructions he allegedly received from the “internet army headquarters.”

The task outline is to create as many fake accounts on social media as possible without raising suspicion. The instructions explain that it is preferable to set up a new email account that uses a Western server. It also advises to set up new Twitter, Facebook, and VKontakte accounts (the Russian equivalent of Facebook).

US Supreme Court Hands Cuba A Victory Over Its Cigars – 25 February 2015

RT logoThe US Supreme Court declined to intervene in a long-running battle between a US and Cuban company over the Cohiba cigar trademark. By refusing to hear an appeal, the country’s highest court leaves intact a ruling in favor of the Cuban firm.

Due to a US trade embargo with Cuba, Cubatabaco cannot sell its Cohiba cigars in the United States while they are sold worldwide and in Cuba. US company General Cigar sells its Dominican Republic-produced Cohiba cigars in the US. The legal dispute is over whether the Cuban company has to the right to challenge General Cigar’s trademark in the US, despite the embargo, as reported by Agence France Presse.

General Cigar obtained a US registration for Cohiba in 1981 and a second registration in 1995. Cubatabaco had the trademark registered in Cuba in 1972. In the late 70s, it began registering the logo outside Cuba – in 115 countries – but was prohibited from selling merchandise in the US by the Cuban Assets Control Regulation (CACR).

ZeroHedge – A Salvo In The Battle For The Gold Standard – 25 February 2015

ZeroHedgeBy Keith Weiner

I wrote what I thought was a fairly simple article for Forbes on Tuesday. I noticed that some people really got it, and they were very excited. However, others were skeptical or asking questions that went into the weeds. The former tells me that I said something important, but the latter says that I said it in a way that not everyone could relate to.

What Nuke? Things We Learned From Leaked Spy Cables That Exposed Netanyahu’s Lie – 25 February 2015

RT logoA blockbuster cache of leaked spy cables has revealed that Netanyahu lied to the UN about Iran’s nuclear capability, and that the CIA covertly attempted to contact Hamas despite a US ban.

The package of cables leaked to Al Jazeera and shared with the Guardian contains exchanges between various intelligence agencies around the world. However, it mostly consists of communications between South Africa’s intelligence agency and its counterparts in other countries. Independently authenticated by the Guardian, the leaks provide a glimpse into the shadowy workings of the global intelligence community.

Iran was not in the final stages of producing nuclear weapons

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared to the United Nations General Assembly in September 2012 that Iran was readying to complete its “plans to build a nuclear weapon.” He even provided a handy infographic to demonstrate his point.

20 ‘Baby’ Craters Appear Near Giant Hole-Turned-Lake In Siberia – 25 February 2015

RT logoScientists have discovered 20 ‘baby’ craters which appeared around a giant hole that filled with water in the Yamal Peninsula, according to a media report. This adds mystery to the region’s unexplained crater formations.

Satellite images have revealed that over 20 mini-craters have appeared around a recently discovered crater-turned-lake located not far from Gazprom’s Bovanenkovo gas field in Russia’s northern Yamal Peninsula.

One of the most interesting objects here is the crater that we mark as B2, located 10 kilometers to the south of Bovanenkovo. On the satellite image you can see that it is one big lake surrounded by more than 20 small craters filled with water,” Vasily Bogoyavlensky, deputy director of the Moscow-based Oil and Gas Research Institute was quoted as saying by the Siberian Times.

ZeroHedge – A Secret “Black Site” Revealed In Chicago: “When You Go In, You Just Disappear” – 25 February 2015

ZeroHedgeLocated in a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s west side is where, according to the Guardian, one can find the domestic equivalent of a CIA “black site” – an illegal, off-the-books interrogation compound used by Chicago special police units, one which renders “Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside”; a place whose former occupants say is where you end up when you are “disappeared”; a place which confirms that when it comes to the eternal “who is better – us or them” debate, there really is no difference: “It brings to mind the interrogation facilities they use in the Middle East. The CIA calls them black sites. It’s a domestic black site. When you go in, no one knows what’s happened to you.” It’s a Guantánamo and Abu Ghraib rolled into one. In short: it is a place where the US constitution and basic human rights have absolutely no access.

President Obama Vetoes Keystone Pipeline Bill – 25 February 2015

RT logoAs promised, US President Barack Obama has vetoed a bill from Congress which will halt construction of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.

Defying the wishes of the Republican-led House and Senate, the president on Tuesday rejected the years-in-the-making would-be legislation that sought to pave the way for a 1,179-mile pipeline to carry crude tar sands oil from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.

Congress authorized the bill more than a week ago, and in recent days it was handed off to the White House.

“The president does intend to veto this pace of legislation, and we intend to do it without drama or fanfare or delay,” Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, said at a scheduled media briefing early Tuesday afternoon in Washington, DC. It was confirmed later in the day that the president had, in fact, vetoed the bill.

Video Footage Counters Philadelphia Police Version Of Fatal Shooting – 25 February 2015

New footage from a 7-Eleven convenience store surveillance camera appears to contradict the stated rationale two Philadelphia, Pennsylvania police officers gave for the Dec. 15 shooting death of Brandon Tate-Brown.

The Philadelphia Police Department has maintained that Tate-Brown was pulled over by officers because the lights of his 2014 Dodge Charger were not turned on. They say one officer was knocked to the ground in a tussle with Tate-Brown, who was then shot and killed by another officer once he reached into the passenger side of his car for a stolen, loaded handgun.

Yet the new footage given to the Philadelphia Daily News by Brian Mildenberg, an attorney for Tate-Brown’s mother, Tanya Brown-Dickerson, revealed that Tate-Brown stopped at a 7-Eleven moments before his death. Identified by his mother, Tate-Brown had his car lights on in the footage.

Jon Rappoport – The News: Mind Control Through “Cognitive Dissonance” – 25 February 2015

jon7“When professionals broadcast one absurdity after another, they begin to see the effects are actually strengthening their own position of authority. It’s a revelation. It’s also a continuation of the tradition of the Trickster archetype. For example, with just a few minor adjustments, Brian Williams can be seen as the sly Reynard the Fox…” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

From the viewpoint of elite television news, controlling the minds of its audience depends on what’s politely called “cognitive dissonance”:
