15 April 2018. Brother Ajamu on the Lamestream Media

The Clinton News Network and state-corporate press really think that the people are stupid. They’ll just assert something and we’re supposed to take it as truth. Now, Syria has “an arsenal of chemical weapons”… kind of like Saddam’s…

Gallup Sez Americans’ Opinions of Russia and Putin Hit 20-Year Low

00 Putin at Sochi. Olympic Village. 14.02.14

______________________________

According to a survey released by Gallup on Thursday, with the eyes of the world trained on the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Americans’ opinions of Russia and its leader Vladimir Putin reached their lowest point in 20 years. According to the poll, both Putin and Russia registered their highest “unfavourable” ratings… 63 percent and 60 percent, respectively… since Gallup began surveying Americans about Russia in 1994. The results follow a Gallup poll in September showing that, for the first time in 15 years, more Americans view Russia as an unfriendly or enemy nation than as an ally or friend of the USA. Washington and Moscow sparred over a range of bilateral and global issues during the past two years, including the Syrian Civil Wargay rights and freedom of speech, American support for anti-government protests in the Ukraine, and Russia’s decision to grant asylum to American intelligence leaker Edward Snowden.

Gallup Managing Editor Art Swift wrote, “Whilst American sentiments were mostly favourable over the past 20 years, it’s obvious that Americans will react strongly at moments when Russia clashes with the USA”. Thirty-four percent of the respondents in the Gallup poll, conducted February 6 to February 9, had a favourable opinion of Russia, whilst 19 percent had a favourable opinion of Putin, who rose to power in 1999. Those numbers are down from 2002 highs of 66 percent and 41 percent, respectively. Swift noted, “Over the past year, Russia’s pursued a much more aggressive stance on the world stage than at any time in the new millennium. In his first term in office, the American public viewed Putin more favourably than unfavourably, but Americans now see him in a clearly unfavourable light”.

Editor’s Note:

The above doesn’t surprise me… the CNN/Fox dezinformatsiya media duopoly give the American public almost no real news on Russia. In fact, they often used faked footage… Fox tried to pass off vid of Athens protests as Moscow… there aren’t any palm trees in Moscow in December! Furthermore, recently, Medvedev made Christiane Amanpour look like a fool on-air… that’s a cardinal sin! The “news machine” poorly serves Americans. In particular, Fox News is off-kilterRoger Ailes lies about the Rodina for TWO reasons:

  • He hates what Vladimir Putin stands for… after all, VVP put Khodorkovsky in the slam, which is verboten in Ailes’ book… Ailes is a big pal of Wee Willy Romney… whose actions in re the American people, economy, and government were IDENTICAL to those of Khodorkovsky in re Russia. Shitbirds of a feather DO flock together…
  • Ailes uses any stick to beat Barack Obama. He lies about VVP to make President Obama look stupid. That is, it has nothing to do with Vladimir Vladimirovich, it has everything to do with the desire of the Republican Party to unseat President Obama and rape the American land and people.

Goebbels (and here) was right in many ways. He served evil… he was evil himself… however, his observations on propaganda and the moulding of public opinion are valid and merit attention. The CNN/Fox duopoly use his playbook… it works. Do recall that Goebbels DID lead the German public astray… not everyone sardonically mocked “Meyer’s Hunting Horns”*.

Yet, Ailes didn’t succeed in pushing the Koch Brothers’ agenda. See the anti-Putin/anti-Russian propaganda campaign in that light. The truth WILL set you free… aren’t you ashamed to have listened to such arrant shit? Well, we’ve all been gulled at one time or another… pass the jug… the world hasn’t got less crank in the last 24…

*Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring said, “If enemy bombers fly over Berlin, you can call me Meyer (a common Jewish name)”. In the later stages of the war, sardonic Berliners called air-raid sirens “Meyer’s hunting horns” (the Berlin sense of humour, irony, and satire is quite like that found in Brooklyn).

19 January 2013. Don’t Believe Everything That You Hear on the News Department… Be Kind to Your Interlocutors, They Only Know What the Corporate Media Feeds Them

00a Russia. Chaplain. Belarus. Spetsnaz. 19.01.13

______________________________

Talk about media obsession! Over the last three days at work, they had CNN blatting away in the corner in the lunchroom. They’re obsessing over Lance Armstrong (a washed-up jock) and some jerkoff jabronie at Notre Dame with an imaginary girlfriend. I kid you not! They didn’t talk about the Algerian hostage crisis… they didn’t talk about the fighting in Mali… they didn’t talk about the Syrian Army kicking ass on the insurgents… they didn’t talk about Russia and China giving support to Iran. They didn’t report the massive First Nations protest in Canada snarling up traffic at the border between Detroit and Windsor… they didn’t report the good economic news from Russia and Belarus… they didn’t report about the Magnitsky Law or about Russia’s response to it, the Guantánamo List. Fox is the same thing, only from the other side of the crapitalist coin.

Be generous with your interlocutors. Most only follow the crank American “news” networks (remember, Canada wouldn’t let Fox operate, as it isn’t really a news operation, it’s a propaganda outlet), so, they only know what the Corporate Leadership wants them to know. If they saw the above image… a Belarusian army chaplain with spetsnaz troopers… they’d say, “Hey, that’s a lot like here. They look like stand-up guys to me”. Remember, most haven’t read what we’ve read or seen what we’ve seen. Give ’em a break. Tell ’em the truth, but give ’em a break. We just might win some friends and influence some people. After all, the greedsters are showing their bloody talons… a lot of people who didn’t see what’s out there before, are seeing it now. They’re seeing that “trickle down” really meant “trickle upon”, and we all know what flows down, don’t we? It’s not prosperity or honey, kids…
