The CIA’s Absence of Conviction

(This is a reprint from Craig Murray's own blog. I'm republishing it here at his invitation, due to his conviction that Facebook and Twitter are "ghost banning" the content from his site. If you'd rather read it on his site, and I wouldn't blame you if you did, feel free to use the link below. This is a very important article. It absolutely puts the boots to this year's most blatantly "false news" story—that the Russians hacked the DNC's computers, and then gave HRC campaign supremo John Podesta's e-mails to Wikileaks.)

Rescuing Boris—Hypocrisy, anyone?

(This is a reprint from an article in Time Magazine. I retrieved it from a Vietnamese Culture discussion group on Google Forums. I cannot verify that it's a totally accurate copy, because I didn't pay the $0.77 I would have had to give Time; besides, then I could have used theirs. It's intended as a counter to what is perhaps this year's biggest, dumbest false news story—that Russia (hyperventilating now) interfered in the POTUS 2016 election. Apparently, Americans don't think that would be fair.

Reading "western" media on Syria

OMG! Those damned Russians! One week they're interfering with the US presidential election, the next they're bombing hospitals and schools in Syria. Woe is us! How are we to understand such perfidy?! Herein a few pointers.

Anti-war Movement Needed NOW!

If there's a peace movement out there, it's time to get up and howl. If there is not, it's time to get working on one. There isn't much time.

Absolutely the worst thing, in my opinion, that can happen in the POTUS election currently taking up way too much space, volume, and megabytes, is if Shillary were to win in a landslide.

Trump vs Clinton: What's important? (Besides everything)

Brian Fri, 2016-10-14 17:50

Here's a moral compass-testing exercise.

Here are some questions abouth the Clinton vs Trump election. Please rank the following in terms of their importance (nb. Almost all of them are really, really important):

Computing: Wish I could get some work done

Sometimes it seems like the majority of my life is spent resolving problems with computers (and phones), problems that seem to crop up for no reason just when I'm about to try to accomplish something.

A few days ago I returned from a sojourn to rural Cambodia, where the wifi was non-existent and the data-mobility was iffy, and I'd forgot to take the power cord for my laptop.

WaPo from The Intercept. Say it ain't so!

One of the more annoying talking points stinking up the debates around the US presidential election is this: Drumpf's son's "skittles" tweet was based on an analogy that "originated" in Nazi Germany.

It's WaPo!

Some child victims we care about, some we don't

Brian Tue, 2016-09-20 13:51

Some child victims we care about, some we don't. An injury to a child caused by someone we don't like, we beat our breasts and tear our hair out. An injury to a child caused by someone we do like, well, shit happens.

Top left, you'll undoubtedly recognize little Omran Daqneesh, injured in a "Russian or Syrian" airstrike, and nobody ever figured out, or cared, what party dropped the bomb. Little Omran was photographed by the "White Helmets," a group of PR campaigners embedded in Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian al-Qaeda affiliate. The "White Helmets" are dearly loved in the "West," are seriously funded by the "West," and have amazing contacts in the Western LameStream media. If you've managed NOT to see a photo of Omran, you'd be quite unusual. Omran, despite being alive, which makes him luckier than a lot of Syrian kids, is a victim we care about. A "worthy" victim.

Syrian "Revolution": Campists unite!

Brian Sat, 2016-08-27 20:20

We're duds!

Those of us who support the elected Syrian government over the foreign-supported and supplied proxy war, the fighters of which are a wahhabist, head-chopping rabble, have it all wrong. We're not anti-imperialists, we're "campists."

Former CIA spook endorses Clinton! WaPo!

(Achtung! I despise Donald Trump. Maybe even more than you. I've despised him for many, many years, since long before he decided to run for POTUS. This is not a pro-Trump piece. I discuss here what I believe to be the actual situation.)
