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.

This is how the propaganda works


“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” ~ Joseph Goebbels (German Nazi politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945. He was one of Adolf Hitler's closest and most devoted associates.)


Whether it is the Korean war, Vietnam, Cuba, Panama, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Syria, Yemen or Venezuela - the media big-wigs always run their scripted 'news story' through the corporate meat grinder first. Mr. Big's media underlings review the oligarchy talking points before they are fed to the public. Strictly Madison Avenue and Hollywood stuff. 

The duly-elected Ukrainian government was toppled in 2014 after the US and its 'Euro-allies' worked for many years to spawn 'color revolutions' there.  Always the goal was to turn Ukraine into a failed state right on Russia's border. Washington-Brussels thinking has been to tie Moscow down so it can't challenge other US-NATO ugly moves on the grand chessboard. 

Russia ain't going along with it.  For years I've heard activists dream of a time when some nation would arise to challenge Washington's long bout of arrogance and domination. But Putin has been so demonized by the west (with shitloads of stories invented and placed in western media) that even many activists friends (who normally are very perceptive) just don't see how they have climbed into the tar pit with Mr. Big on this particular issue.  Very sad.

Having religiously studied the Ukraine-Russia issue since 2014 on I've come to the conclusion that the same techniques used by the CIA to run color revolutions around the world are also run here at home. Many were invented here. 

One of those techniques is to place CIA clones into virtually every institution in America. The nation is saturated with intel and surveillance. Also propaganda promotion and neutralizing key leaders that get a big following are other techniques. Paul Wellstone was one of those who they killed.

I have long believed the peace movement (like all other movements outside of Mr. Big's total control) are similarly infiltrated with some paid operatives. They can become top leaders - they get money, media and protection from the oligarchs. Their job is to steer the movements in certain directions that serve the 'interests' of Wall Street and the war machine. 

The Ukraine coup was where I really learned this in 2014.  For about two weeks straight I followed a couple leads from Fazebook and burrowed into several people to learn about their jobs, funding sources, and links to academia (where profs are often funded to steer young minds into acceptable capitalist foreign policy thinking). 

One of them had challenged one of my posts on FB - calling me 'Putinized'. He was quite an unfriendly guy who was using a peace organization page to promote the anti-Russian line.  I discovered he was American and worked in Ukraine prior to the coup. He was hired to help train NGO's in how to reach young people, fire them up, and use their good-hearted enthusiasm for cynical purposes. The energy at the 'Maidan' in Kiev was handed over to the Nazi's who then physically muscled their way into the new government.  The rest is history. US-NATO fingerprints are all over that crime. In addition to CIA there were the National Endowment for Democracy, USAID, State Department agencies, Pentagon, and the Soros 'Open Society Foundation' - among others.

The only foundation that has been built in Ukraine since 2014 is chaos. Check out chaos theory.
