Assad is still there… kicking the asses of the American-sponsored terrorists. Cameron is gone… he couldn’t even run a referendum right. One of these things is not like the other…

Every so often, Langley trolls try to post Anglo propaganda on people’s walls. Simply ban them and be done with them. You don’t owe them anything. Reflect on this… they don’t care if terrorists murder people in Syria and in Novorossiya… they got their pay-packets, they’re “respectable”, and they got their “goodies”. Woe to those who call good “evil” and evil “good”… do remember WHO said that…

US Government Lacks Moral Authority to March for Freedom of Speech

00 free speech march in paris. 14.01.15

______________________________

On Monday, Daniel McAdams, Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, told Sputnik in an interview that the current US administration doesn’t have the moral right to take part in rallies for freedom of expression like the one held in Paris on Sunday, saying, “The Obama Administration invoked the Espionage Act more times than all its predecessors combined to silence or imprison whistleblowers. Why would a representative of one of the worst violators of the US First Amendment have any moral authority to march in a rally for free speech?” The unity rally in Paris had the aim of expressing solidarity with the victims of last week’s terror attacks on the office of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and the hostages killed during a subsequent attack on a kosher supermarket outside Paris. Over a million people attended the unity march, including 40 top world officials. British Prime Minister David Cameron, German Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel, and Minister of Foreign Affairs S V Lavrov showed up at the rally, however, the USA didn’t send a leading figure to the event, only sending US Ambassador to France Jane Hartley. According to McAdams, some foreign leaders present at the march for “freedom of speech”, including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Ukrainian President (sic) P A Poroshenko, are responsible for “innumerable violations of free speech in their own countries”.

He also emphasised that France, Germany, and the UK routinely imprison their own citizens for expressing opinions that the government finds objectionable, noting, “France has gone so far as to ban a comedian from performing in the country, because his controversial speech was not of the approved variety”, adding that in addition to disrespecting the freedom of speech, Western governments, including the USA, “arm and support terrorists. France, the UK, Germany, and the USA actively supported terrorists in Syria and Libya for years in their efforts to overthrow governments they don’t like”. According to McAdam, the Kouachi brothers, the suspects in the attack on the Charlie Hebdo office, later killed by French police, “were essentially promoting French foreign policy when they were in Syria last summer fighting against the Assad government. They may have even used French weapons in Syria, as France shipped plenty of weapons to terrorists fighting there”.

On Monday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said during a press briefing that the USA should’ve sent a higher profile official to the Paris unity march. According to Earnest, US President Barack Obama didn’t attend the event because of security concerns.

The Guardian Finally Starts to Report the Truth about the War in the Ukraine

00 Novorossiya OPPOSES the Junta! 22.08.14

_____________________________

Editor:

As you read this, dear Russian Orthodox reader, reflect on the fact that S A Schmemann, S L Kishkovskaya, Rod Dreher, Victor Potapov, and Freddie M-G are all willing and eager whores for the Western media disinformation machine. Jonas Paffhausen willingly hangs around and collaborates with the American Enterprise Institute… one of the foremost stink-tank manufacturers of lies about the Rodina (besides being one of the most strident supporters of neoliberal Affluent Effluent greed and theft). These people are stinking traitors to Orthodoxy and godless blaspheming advocates of ravening Mammon… we should treat them accordingly.

On 7 January, Britain’s Guardian, which used to be a fine newspaper, but isn’t now, started what’ll necessarily be a long road back to reality, after nearly a year of their intermittent inattention and Western propaganda on the Ukraine. Finally, it realistically reported the war there as being what it is and always was… an attempt by the post-coup Ukrainian junta to destroy an area where residents gave 90 percent of their votes to President V F Yanukovichoverthrown in the February 2014 coup. Oleg Orlov headlined “Ukraine’s Forgotten City Destroyed by War”; he described a city in ruins from the intensive bombings during July and August. Although most of his article avoided the key question about which side was to blame for this, no one can deny that the invaders here were the Ukrainian forces, and that the defenders were local volunteer troops. So, anyone with an IQ above 50 would have no difficulty figuring out that the Ukrainian forces were to blame for bombing this city… that the junta was bombing and trying to exterminate the residents there whilst claiming to be their rightful government (and which still remains supported by the West in their war against the former “Ukrainians” who live, and have always lived, there). Here’s the way that Orlov reported it:

Towards the end of July, Ukrainian troops approached Pervomaisk but ran into stiff resistance and could not take it. A massive artillery bombardment began that would continue into August. Most people fled.

He described the damage he viewed:

Ukrainian artillery barrages practically wiped Some blocks of this city, situated 50 kilometres west of Lugansk, off the face of the earth. Hardly any houses have escaped unscathed. We had seen such complete devastation in [Novorossiya] only [once before], in Khryashchuvate and Novosvitlivka, a few kilometres southeast of Lugansk. On that occasion, though, LNR (Lugansk People’s Republic) and possibly Russian artillery opened fire in August to dislodge Ukrainian troops from the villages.

Ultimately, he acknowledged that the junta was the invader:

The Commandant of Pervomaisk (the mayor, appointed by the armed men who control the city) has a grisly collection of photos on his computer taken at that time. The [local patriots], though, had set up camp not only on the outskirts of the city but also smack in the centre, goading the Ukrainian forces into firing on Pervomaisk. However, that in no way justifies strikes against populated areas by multiple launch rocket systems.

However, again, only a fool would think otherwise. The situation is hard for propagandists in the Obama Administration to mention. We should also point up out that when Orlov asserted, “the [local patriots] having set up camp not only on the outskirts of the city but also smack in the centre” was “goading the Ukrainian forces into firing on Pervomaisk”, he said that even merely defending the city constituted shared responsibility, along with the attackers, for the city’s destruction. This is like saying that a woman’s attractiveness constitutes her shared responsibility for her rape by her attacker. Then, Orlov goes on to say:

In November, strikes on the city resumed, although they were less intense than in the summer. We talked to the staff of a maternity hospital hit by a bomb on 15 November, with a further five bombs exploding next to the building. A baby girl born two months premature was in the hospital at the time… it was a miracle that she survived, the doctors say.

Then:

When, the following morning, a repair brigade went to [clear away the rubble], a new barrage began, killing one worker. They showed us some one-storey houses destroyed on 23 November by strikes from a Grad rocket launcher. People crowded tightly into the bomb shelters when they are under fire, [but] there were no bombardments during our visit and the huddled figures were those of permanent residents who no longer have anywhere else to live.

He describes how the Ukrainian junta bombings (financed by the West) produced desperate condition amongst the people:

The worst thing is the acute shortage of food in Pervomaisk. Although there are several shops in town, many people have no money left to buy anything. The city authorities… the Commandant, mayor and Cossack, Yevgeni Ishchenko and his comrades-in-arms… are trying to keep people alive somehow.

Perhaps because of the requirement in the West to blame Russia for these things, the article closes:

When we were in Pervomaisk, an eighth humanitarian aid convoy crossed over from Russia into [Novorossiya]. On our way back to Moscow, we discovered that no [food or supplies] from this convoy found their way to Pervomaisk. We appealed to the Commissioner for Human Rights and the Presidential Human Rights Council. We hope that the Russian government will wield its influence and convince the LNR authorities to send some of the humanitarian aid they receive from Russia to those who need it most… the people of Pervomaisk.

He ignores this reality… the Ukrainian junta blocks aid convoys. The junta is trying to starve the residents to death. To blame Russia for any of that failure of food to reach the starving is obscene. However, at least, this article by Orlov is a start. That’s more than one can yet say for such newspapers as The New York Times, and Washington Post… or any in America. After all… Obama installed the current Ukrainian junta, David Cameron didn’t. If the business of journalism is to cover-up for their government’s international crimes, then, newspapers such as The New York Times and Washington Post are authentic journalistic institutions, not mere propaganda-organs. However, the Guardian is stepping away from that type of “journalism’”… at least, to the extent that Britain is partly responsible for the February 2014 Ukrainian coup, which is a very small extent. Perhaps, that’s why the “news” media in Britain are a bit freer to report the truth of that war than ours are. Only in America is the lying by media about the war in the Ukraine so pervasive. That’s because it’s America’s war, even though the American public is overwhelmingly opposed to it. The American Government serves the American aristocracy… it no longer serves the public. Maybe, the British aristocracy don’t hate Russians as much as America’s do; but, for whatever reason, they’re not as committed to destroying Russia as Obama and the American aristocracy that he represents are. That American aristocracy control America’s “news” media, but they fortunately don’t also control Britain’s. If one reads the American press about the Ukraine now, after the coup, then, one is reading lies, distortions, and propaganda… myths, not history.
