The preceding is echo of my (long since buried) ambition to write books for children. Geopolitical intrigue killed that dream. But perhaps my Victorian era vocabulary would have seen the demise of the ambition after-all; few can read at the level of Washington Irving these days, in a world where ‘literacy’ should be (if we are honest) synonymous with ‘antiquarian.’ People don’t know how to read anymore. That is, if ‘knowing how to read’ should include attention span of more than 1,500 words (the composition limit that can keep the ‘serious’ 21st Century internet reader), ability to absorb & retain, grow observational ability (acquire social intelligence) and not least, improve one’s overall person by building awareness of the culture & world one lives in.

So many things have changed in the past 200, 150, 100 and past 50 years. Time has accelerated exponentially, coupled to cultural decay, ‘sweat equity’ (investment) in learning has been sacrificed to technological developments demand of speed and accompanying stresses which require ‘expediting’ nearly everything; with final effect of imposing instant gratification upon what ‘once upon a time’ were the ‘joys of life’, reflected not only in ‘leisure’ (do people even know what relaxed enjoyment is anymore?) but genuine care taken in superior craftsmanship or work product coupled to personal pride and development. All of this can be linked to personal development.

Ok, so that was was a critical mouthful. But, it DOES sum up the social defect underlying an involuntary post-modern shallowness of today’s lost sheep or those many lemmings following so many geopolitical pied pipers hither & thither, trying to discover what is going on but lacking the critical tools (depth of personal development) to step back and observe accurately. People have been cheated and they should feel cheated.

A result of this is found in a metaphor; today’s alternative news junkies get swept up in cults of personality like the faithful flocking to gurus. The problem here is the West is not anything like Hindu culture or alternatively stated (paraphrasing Carl Jung) these people lack a cultural foundation and cannot practice authentically when seeking ‘news enlightenment.’

These germinating thoughts are result of this blogger (yours truly) noticing ‘political-demographic’ change in readership when taking repeated route away from established narrative that amount to ‘news cults’ that are attracted to read and then driven off when the subject of the inquiry changes. When digging into the Obama fraud, my conservative readership was strong, when I dug into the Trump fraud, there was drop and gain in readers of a different political cult and again when taking on the putrid Biden/Harris fraud, drop and gain, like the roller coaster. But these dips & peaks pale by comparison to the hit in readership when I’d recently turned my sights on Pepe Escobar [1] and Russian propaganda technique & cowardice [2], [3] (as separate entities.) Their readership amounts to cults of personality and their readers are seriously misled whilst noting Escobar produces for two imited hangouts: TomDispatch [4], [5] & The Asia Times notably also hosting intelligence disinformation specialists MK Bhadrakumar [6] & ‘Spengler.’ [7]

This site goes where the evidence leads without political alignment (but with a conservative ethic), and the cosmos has been kind, because Dr David Martin’s (may the gods bless him forever) piece on the covid fraud (reproduced at this site) [8] brought well over 20,000 new visitors to this small blog in a matter of months before the algorithms at duckduckgo search engine were adjusted to bury the article (articles at my site had been buried by the CIA aligned google search for years already.)

And, of course, mixed appreciation is always extended to the spooks who read at this site faithfully; maybe one day, some of them will ‘wake up’ … (noting there are indications some have.)

“Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as cooperation with the good” -Mahatma Ghandi

A Sociopaths & Democracy Project

*

Cowardice is a form of corruption that is pervasive in politics, and is essentially a product of collective-centralized, ego-driven narcissism that fears loss of power. When political cowardice drives media lies, this corruption of the state opens avenue to enhanced sense of false reality and results in social-psychological split that ultimately must widen the gulf between the politicians and the people they proselytize. This systemic corruption, typical of modern states, is worst in the Western liberal democracies (the Bernays model of pervasive lies) but is also becoming a primary evil of the Russian state. [1]

Altogether setting aside the personalities of Navalny et al, who’re actually Western agents of influence (follow the money), and not Russian patriots, we can turn our sights on Yeltsen era apparachik Alexei Gromov, the contemporary Kremlin comptroller of Russian media, and his primary minion promoting media lies for external propaganda, boss of RT & Sputnk International, the succubus extraordinaire Margarita Simonyan who practically performs political fellatio on the Western propaganda model she contests with. The media cowardice subject to the present composition is that of ‘the flip’ Russian propaganda method, preferred when truth is inconvenient; in the Sputnik International article “Bizarre Conspiracy Theories That Have Haunted 9/11 Attacks for Two Decades” [2], [3], [4], [5]

“The official ruling was disputed by The Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911T) – activists related to the notorious 9/11 Truth movement that refuse to accept the official version of the events. According to the activists, the WTC-7 collapse was a “near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building”. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) found, however, that the columns’ failures were triggered when joists and beams “walked off” their connections”

The bold in this above excerpted paragraph is subject to an egregious lie by omission; in fact the quote attributed to “activists” is an unattributed (by Sputnik) plagiarism put on the “activists” lips.  The actual source of the quote? The Institute of Northern Engineering, a fully accredited department of the University of Alaska:

WTC_7 - 1

“The principal conclusion of our study is that fire did not cause the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11, contrary to the conclusions of NIST and private engineering firms that studied the collapse. The secondary conclusion of our study is that the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building[6]

The Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth who FUNDED the (four years) university study happen to be more than 3,000 (three thousand plus) certified architects and engineers, and over three thousand trained professionals arriving at a consensus in their area of expertise cannot be (honestly) described as some notorious fringe conspiracy group. [7]

In short, what Gromov & Simoyan have done, in this example case of the scandalous articles at Sputnik on the 2021 anniversary of 9/11, is promote exceedingly dishonest yellow journalism (noting ‘yellow’ is a synonym for cowardice in American dialect) that reduces 3,000+ engineering professionals to a group of fringe conspiracy freaks where in the Sputnik storyline a fully accredited four year university study result is plagiarized and put on the disingenuously described but highly professional group’s lips as though the study had never happened (made the study vanish with ‘yellow journalism’ magic.)

“Yellow journalism and yellow press are American terms for journalism and associated newspapers that present little or no legitimate, well-researched news while instead using eye-catching headlines for increased sales. Techniques may include exaggerations of news events, scandal-mongering, or sensationalism” Wikipedia [8]

The “What About Building 7?” section then goes on to use an old, tried and true psychological operations trick; when associating the ‘jet fuel’ fires of the twin towers with Building 7, an out of context claim conflating the NIST assertions concerning the temperature of fires of the twin towers with Building 7, although the fires in Building 7 were a different (no jet fuel) circumstance. The devious construction of this ‘error’ indicates disinformation specialists assigned to the story’s composition.

Motive: Gromov & Simoyan’s pet propaganda projects RT & Sputnik have a vested self-interest in perpetrating the 9/11 lie; because 9/11 truth is a red line they dare not cross for the fact their journalists and broadcast rights likely would become persona non grata in the Western liberal democracies if they were to expose Dick Cheney’s Reichstag Fire. [9]

Yes, folks, Russia’s premier news outlets DO lie and when they do, the lies are cowardice driven ‘whoppers’ (really big lies.)

Methinks Vladimir Putin should be (someday) ungrateful for Gromov & Simonyan’s efforts; because this flip ‘judo in media’ mentality never seems to leave the dojo and face the reality of the street fight; where the ‘truth’ of winners & losers is unambiguous. You can’t lie (or bluff) your way through the big issues as a matter of habit and expect to win.

“You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time” -American folk proverb

“Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as cooperation with the good” -Mahatma Ghandi

A Sociopaths & Democracy Project

This article first appeared at Ft Russ

Well, if there is collusion between Wikileaks and Russia, it’s right here and it’s not what people would expect:

“It might materialize at some point”

What might materialize at some point? Evidence the Russians hacked the DNC, according to Wikileaks chief editor Kristinn Hrafnsson. Now, let’s pound that square peg into the round hole of Craig Murray stating…

murray_wikileaks-1

“I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things”

…and Seymour Hersh stating the DNC mails were discovered in (the assassinated) Seth Rich’s computer and he (Rich) had passed the mails to Wikileaks for money…

…and Kim Dotcom saying he was a part of it…

…and Assange himself indicating it had been “Wikileaks source” Seth Rich was the “insider” who LEAKED the DNC mails and he’s certainly not Russian:

Now, what I’d like to know is, with Assange presently under what amounts to ‘lock-down’ in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, why does Russian state media appear to be colluding in the ‘Russian hack’ mythology that should have been laid to rest long ago? Why does Wikileaks associate Craig Murray, who flatly stated he had met the source, continue to refuse to name Seth Rich (a dead man) and contribute to laying the caper to rest?

RT has promoted Assange and Wikileaks via its reporting for years, at one point providing Assange his own show [1], raising questions; was any grilling (that didn’t happen) of the Wikileaks chief editor concerning this glaring inconsistency of Wikileaks suddenly allowing for the (non-existent) ‘hack’ somehow too compromising for the Russians? Clearly Wikileaks should be able to blow the entire ‘evil Russians’ DNC hack lie out of existence and instead there is pulling in opposite direction by Kristinn Hrafnsson with Russian state media playing along by handling the Wikileaks editor with kid gloves.

Why does Russian state media and Wikileaks appear to be colluding in perpetrating and/or providing cover for the DNC hack lie promoted by Mueller’s special investigation findings?

Is there some consensus between the Russians and Wikileaks that laying the DNC hack propaganda BS to rest would be too destabilizing? Criminals do not voluntarily surrender their business models and Crowdstrike (the CIA & Ukrainian intelligence associated author of the Guccifer lie) is not going to put tail between legs and voluntarily march itself to jail together with Robert Muller and the ‘formerly’ CIA employed Attorney General William Barr.

It follows, if it can be a reasonable interpretation of events to suggest (reasonable insofar as the far stretches of reality created by intelligence agencies for their adversaries to hopefully consume) the Steele Dossier had been fed to Western institutions by Russian intelligence via Sergei Skripal to ultimately make Western intelligence look like idiots, and just such a scenario has been not only suggested but endorsed by a former NATO intelligence officer with a pretty good record on calling BS on the whole ‘evil Russians’ propaganda line by the NATO states; it is also a reasonable speculation the ‘Guccifer 2.0 hack’ in the DNC mails storyline might be a very similar Russian intelligence ploy but had unforeseen consequence of not only swallowed by American intelligence but the entire USA Congress, House and Senate, rather than exposed (as William Binney of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity attempted to do.) In this case, the so-called ‘hack’ caper never resolved as intended, to simply make American intelligence look stupid and reduce the American political establishment’s confidence in their intelligence services. In short ‘the hack’ became a runaway gambit much bigger than its intended goal of (falsely) exposing Ukrainian intelligence (connected to Crowdstrike) feeding the Americans a baited hook, a hook baited in actuality by Russian intelligence who likely have every aspect of the Ukrainian intelligence apparatus compromised. [2], [3], [4], [5], [6]

Maybe, just maybe, the DNC ‘hack’ story is the spy versus spy operation that ran away to unintended/unknown destiny and Russian intelligence just doesn’t know what, exactly, to do about it, that is, it became too big and destabilizing, and Wikileaks is going along because indeed they could be exposed as a Russian stooge (if in a most asymmetrical and unanticipated way!)
