With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

The US media, and practically all western media, is under corporate control.  They play the same tune and then broadcast about the "international consensus" in order to make it appear that the whole world is on their side.  It's not.

The pirates are playing their cards in the saloon and using all the tools at their disposal to make 'Full Spectrum Dominance" a reality.  The Space Command was the first to use that mantra but now it has spread to cover the entirety of the agenda of Mr. Big and his groveling minions.

Rarely do we see or hear the words of alternative voices to global domination.  Mr. Big has all the bases covered.  In times like this I remember the weeds popping up through the cracks in the pavement.  I am one of those weeds, joyfully seeking the sun, and good water, to survive on our rich planet.  I don't want nobody dominating the Mother Earth.  It's not the right path to survival.

Many inside the White House criticize the Russian media.  Yes Russian media have an opinion but they are more open to outside and alternative thinking and it is often refreshing coverage.  I will share a couple here from Ria Novosti.

They quote Larry Johnson, a former CIA agent and US State Department employee, who is a member of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS).  This group recently sent a "memorandum" to Obama asking him to take immediate measures to de-escalate the Ukrainian conflict.

“Now there is a very strong element in the United States which is pushing for really almost a confrontation with Russia over Ukraine and they haven’t really thought through it,” said Johnson, a co-author of the memorandum to the president .

“When they talk about arming the dissidents or arming folks opposing Russia in the Ukraine, they don’t appreciate the possibility of the escalation that that can create,” Johnson said.

“We [the US] tend to try to portray these things in a way that doesn’t really take into account all the dynamics that are involved. And I think it’s really dangerous,” he said.
The Russian news source also shared the thinking of international law professor Francis Boyle, a US-based expert on Russia and lifetime member of the peace movement, who says:

NATO is using the Ukrainian crisis as a smoke screen for a war plan and the US has already decided to permanently station troops in Eastern Europe.

NATO has repeatedly blamed Russia for the escalation of tensions in Ukraine and building up arms and troops on the country’s border. The alliance has already used the crisis to justify an expansion of its military forces near Russian borders, bumping up the number of air patrol missions in Eastern Europe.
These words are fundamental to the kind of public debate that should now be happening in the US but all possible media doors are closed - except those few tiny cracks in the cement.  But when people turn to listen to the voices provided by Russian media we are verbally whiplashed by John Kerry as he denounces RT.  Kerry's masters know by seeding the public fear of being branded a "commie" or a "subversive sympathizer" many will be disinclined to stick their necks out into such a cold climate.

Not all weeds make it through the cement cracks....mostly those who desire life so much that they keep growing and reaching out.  We call it hope... the truth ... and life.

Let it be.
