West Steps Up Disruptive Actions Inside Russia Over Crimea – FSB

from Ria Novosti

Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) has noted an increase in foreign disruptive actions since the souring of relations with the West over the situation in Crimea and appropriate measures are being taken to protect the country, a senior FSB official said Friday.

The fate of Crimea, a predominantly ethnic Russian region which seceded from Ukraine and joined Russia last week, has triggered the worst East-West standoff since the Cold War.

“There has been a sharp increase in foreign threats to the state. The legal desire of the Crimean people and those in the eastern regions of Ukraine to join Russia evokes hysteria on the part of the United States and its allies,” said Alexander Malevany, the FSB’s counterterrorism director, at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“They are undertaking measures to disrupt the social, political and economic life of our country,” Malevany added. “In such circumstances, we are planning and implementing active counterintelligence and intelligence measures against their ambitions.”

Another Ridiculously Staged Pussy Riot™ Beating Video

by Scott Creighton

Pussy Riot™  mission statement: When the world is being neoliberalized as fast as possible and the masters of the universe demand tribute from those seeking a place at the table, no effort to assist in that endeavor , no matter how sophomoric or insipid, no matter how ridiculous, no matter how contrived, shall go unrewarded. And Pussy Riotwill be there to cash in

On February 20th, not even a month ago, I wrote about a poorly scripted and badly staged street-theater performance in Sochi performed by the Western backed agitation operation known as “Pussy Riot™ “

Their hasty little performance was designed to demonize Russia under Putin since we all know, Russia under the neoliberal drunkard puppet Yeltsin was such a better place for the oligarchs and the international bankers.

It involved members of the “band” (if you wish to call them that) setting up under a Sochi Olympics sign in a parking lot and immediately being attacked by actors wearing what is supposed to look like Russian military or police uniforms.

The video was such a joke, it reminded me of that “news story” CNN did during the Gulf War where two reporters in a studio pretended to be reporting live from a hotel as scud missiles rained down on their heads. The first Pussy Riot™  video is almost as bad.

The latest Pussy Riot™  beating video is actually worse.

USA declares war on democracy

by Kevin Ryan, Press TV

Since the days of President Woodrow Wilson – that is, for roughly 100 years – the USA has been on a self-styled crusade to “make the world safe for democracy.”

Colossal wars, hot and cold, were fought against German kaisers and fuhrers, Russian communists, and Third World nationalists. The American people were told they were “defending democracy.”

Americans slaughtered 3.5 million Vietnamese, and nearly another million Cambodians, to “defend democracy” in Southeast Asia.

They murdered millions of Iraqis through wars and sanctions to “defend democracy” in the Middle East.

According to André Vltchek and Noam Chomsky’s book On Western Terrorism, the US government has murdered between 55 and 60 million people since World War II in wars and interventions all over the world. If we believe the imperial propagandists, this American Holocaust has been one big defense of democracy.

But now, on the eve of the 100th anniversary of World War I, the US has embarked on a new crusade – to make the world UNSAFE for democracy.

In Ukraine, Venezuela, and Thailand, the US is spending billions of dollars to unconstitutionally eject democratically-elected governments. In Palestine, the US has been trying to overthrow the democratically-elected Hamas government ever since it came to power. In Egypt, the US – under Zionist pressure – recently overthrew the only genuinely democratic government in 5,000 years of recorded history. In Syria, the US insists that the people must not be given the opportunity to re-elect Assad, no matter how many international observers and safeguards ensure honest elections. And in Turkey, the US is undermining the democratically-elected Prime Minister Erdogan in favor of CIA puppet Fethullah Gulen.

Taking the long view, the US is working patiently to destroy democracy in Iran, Russia, and Latin America.

Why does the US government hate democracy?

Because the international bankers who own the US government and run the US empire cannot always buy enough votes to impose their will on every country. So democracy is fine – as long as voters elect the New World Order candidate. But if they vote for a candidate who doesn’t suit the oligarchs, get ready for a coup!

The banksters will overthrow any government that stands up to them – even in the USA. The “termination with extreme prejudice” of the presidency of John F. Kennedy sent a message to all future US presidents.

“Pussy Riot” is re-Branding – Will Form “Human Rights” Group (a.k.a. “destabilization NGO”)

by Scott Creighton

The “Pussy Riot” psyop is officially over. They are now re-branding themselves (their words) into what appears to be yet another destabilization NGO backed by outside interests.

Looking very upper middle class in their press conference, the two women, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, said they were going to form a human rights group called “Rights Zone” and they would align themselves with the likes of Aleksey Navalny and former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky.

The Pussy Riot divas are forming a human rights group “in close “ideological and conceptual” cooperation” with a globalist neoliberal oil tycoon/oligarch?

Now that’s funny.

Panetta Anounces More Drones and Black Bag Ops “Outside Declared Combat Zones” as Reaction to Benghazi Psyop

by Scott Creighton

Leon Panetta has announced that they will be stepping up drone strikes and black bag operations in Africa and everywhere else including “outside declared combat zones’ due to the “terrorist attack’ on the CIA consulate in Benghazi this past Sept. 11th

Panetta’s declaration is one that Cheney would certainly have been proud of. He is stating that “we” will be running unconventional warfare black ops against all kinds of targets even outside declared combat zones meaning that our Special Forces Ops will be hitting “leftist” targets, people who organize labor or resistance to our imperial project in their nations. We will simply be kicking in their doors at 3 am and dragging them out to never be seen or heard from again.

“Russian Cluster Munitions Used by Syria” is Clearly a Distraction (or “Elvis is Shelling My Home, Report Claims”)

by Scott Creighton

Human Rights Watch has produced a study which purports to show that the Syrian government is using cluster munitions, a weapon of indiscriminate killing, against the FSA and other terrorists in cities inside Syria. It has also been claimed that the cluster bombs are being provided to the Syrian government by Russia. Clearly this is propaganda designed to offset the fact that the United States, Britain, France, and Saudi Arabia are arming the terrorists operating in Syria who are using those weapons and logistic intel to attack civilian as well as government and business targets with the overall goal of destabilizing Syria to the point of forcing regime change on a country whose population largely supports Assad.

The Human Rights Watch “study” is so obviously flawed and skewed to the pro-regime change agenda, one has to ask how it’s taken seriously by any reputable mainstream media outlet. But of course, the answer to that question is as obvious as the propaganda itself.

Clinton Admits Putin Won the Russian Presidential Election Fair and Square

by Scott Creighton

“US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has acknowledged that Vladimir Putin is the “clear winner” of Russia’s presidential elections” but then she gave the world a bit of a glimpse into the rationale behind their efforts to destabilize his regime by falsely accusing him of rigging the election:

The election had a clear winner and we are ready to work with President-elect Putin as he is sworn in and assumes the responsibilities of the presidency,”… “We continue to believe that Russia should join the international community and play a positive role in trying to end the bloodshed and help create the conditions for a peaceful democratic transition [in Syria],”… “That is not only a US position, that is also through NATO that we have sought to discuss this at the NATO-Russia Council,” Russia Today

Russia and Syria both have been attempting to find a peaceful solution to the NATO made crisis in Syria. The United States, specifically Hillary Clinton, want nothing to do with their efforts. What they want is the United States and her NATO allies to force the Assad regime to fold and then they want to write Syria’s new constitution themselves so they can rebuild the nation in their neoliberal model.. just like they are doing in Libya.

It is nice to see Clinton having to admit, in public, that the Russia presidential election was not rigged and that Putin is the legitimate president of Russia after all the MSM (and even most dissident sites) ran with the bullshit story of Putin’s stolen election.

Of course, American Everyman didn’t go that direction. :)

“The propaganda mills are running at full speed to discredit this weekend’s Russian presidential election and by extension, Vladamir Putin, who is now set to serve an unprecedented third term as president of Russia. All the “news” agencies and even the leading left/right dissident sites are marching in lockstep to denounce the Russian elections despite it being hailed by international observers as the most transparent and “the best election monitoring system” the world has ever seen.” Scott Creighton

Pro-Putin Rally Lambasts ‘Orange Trash’

(Here’s some news you won’t see on MSNBCCNNFOXABCHUFFPUFF. 35,000 show up for “democracy” rally in Russia while 160,000 show up for a pro-Putin anti-Orange Trash rally in Moscow’s Poklonnaya Gora memorial. The Russian people clearly don’t want the Yeltsin era oligarchs coming back to power in Moscow and the “Orange Trash” refers back to the CIA backed color revolutions and specifically the “Orange Revolution” in the Ukraine that took place during the Bush II regime in 2004)

RIA Novosti

Speakers at the pro-government rally in Moscow on Saturday lambasted the opposition, which held a parallel protest event elsewhere in the city, for plotting a revolution in the interests of Western powers.

“We say no to the destruction of Russia. We say no to Orange arrogance. We say no to the American government…let’s take out the Orange trash,” political analyst Sergei Kurginyan said at the rally by Moscow’s Poklonnaya Gora memorial, which he co-organized.

Police said between 90,000 and to 160,000 attended the event in support of Prime Minister and presidential candidate Vladimir Putin, compared to 35,000 at the opposition rally on Bolotnaya Ploshchad, whose organizers estimated attendance at 100,000.

Clinton Pushes For Regime Change Language in Resolution While Her Psyops Surge

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: In spite of all their efforts, the propagandists have failed “Russia and China vetoed the draft resolution endorsing an Arab League call for Bashar Assad to leave power.”

————-

According to GE’s PR vehicle MSNBC, Hillary Clinton contacted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of today’s UN Security Council vote on Syria in order to try to persuade him to back off Russia’s refusal to support regime change in Syria. The Security Council resolution is watered down now that Russia and China have refused to support another Libyan type resolution dealing with the destabilization campaign being waged in Syria.

Not so coincidentally, two stories dominate MSNBC’s headlines. One story is based on a London NGO’s unsupported claims of Syrian atrocities and the other is about how Hillary Clinton’s destabilization campaign in Russia is staging a protest to pressure Putin. This is all just an effort to apply international pressure so NATO countries can pound Syrian civilian infrastructure like they did in Libya for a forced regime change and the neoliberalization of yet another of those “7 Countries in 5 Years” states. This propaganda is being spread all across the political spectrum of news sources using everything from babies to Guy Fawkes masks. It’s quite impressive how far they will go to use lies to promote war these days. CHANGE is right. Since Obama said “we are looking forward and not back” when he justified not investigating the criminal behavior in the run-up to the Iraq War, they barely even try to hide it anymore.

Neo-liberal Destabilization Plan for Syria Continues: How long till we are on that “Seven Countries” list?

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Russia opposes ‘Libyan scenario’ in Syria and will block resolution

Syrian government accepted Russian brokered peace talks with opposition

The Syrian “rebels/activists” rejected a Russian brokered peace talks

The Syrian “rebels/activists” sabotage state run natural gas pipeline and murdered a doctor

——

So, I came back to see him (in the Pentagon) a few weeks later (October of 2001) and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan and I said “Are we still going to war with Iraq?” and he said “It’s worse than that.” He said.. he reached over on his desk and he picked up a piece of paper and he said “I just got this down from upstairs today..” meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office… and he said “this is a memo that describes how we are going to take out 7 countries in 5 years.. starting with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finishing off Iran.Gen. Westley Clark

When every single MSM “news” outlet is on the same page, reporting “activist said” unsubstantiated propaganda pertaining to Libya, Somalia and Syria as unquestionable fact, the current administration is free to do whatever they want with no fear of reprisal from their so-called “progressive” supporters. That means the Obama administration of “CHANGE” is able to openly continue yet another horrendous and illegal policy of the Bush administration, the neoliberalization of several state centered nations, unencumbered by the inherent restrictions of democracy ie the “will of the people” who would never support premeditated invasions and occupations of other nations for the express interests of multinational corporations and financial institutions.

Just as the complicit corporatist media assisted the Bush regime in manufacturing consent for the illegal invasion of Iraq, they are doing the exact same thing now under the Obama administration as they openly continue to fulfill the “7 countries in 5 years” agenda set so long ago.

Faking It: How the Media Manipulates the World into War

American Everyman Imperialist War and Political Ticker

by Scott Creighton

Things are speeding up and we are rushing headlong into 2012, the year of real “CHANGE” in America. Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta are busy prodding Iran, Syria and Russia into all-out war while the presidential race is neatly boxed in with all neoliberal candidates arguing about who would privatize Social Security fastest leaving Granny to feast on Wal-mart brand deregulated cat food while their friends in Wall Street post still more record bonuses.

Let’s check out some of the latest news.

Destabilization Campaigns

After being demonized for months for not letting Arab League observers into Syria, the Assad government has allowed them to come see what’s really happening in their country. Terrorists attacked an area as the observers advance team showed up last Saturday. They were hoping to derail the process but the observers showed up anyway and now that they are there, their leader has made it clear that they saw “nothing frightening” in Homs, supposedly the epicenter of all that violence, at least that’s what “activists say” journalism has been reporting in the MSM. The MSM seem to side with the al Qaeda linked Syrian opposition when they claim it was an “inside job

Let’s take a quick look back at some of the failed fake news stories and propaganda campaigns focused on destabilizing Syria so that we can force regime change and our own special brand of neoliberalized Shock Therapy “democracy”

Russian vs U.S. Elections

by Steve Lendman, ADS

Russia’s December 4 elections filled 450 State Duma seats, Russia’s Federal Assembly lower house.

Claims of electoral fraud followed. All elections have irregularities. At issue is whether results are comprised. Election monitor Golos accusations were spurious. America’s National Endowment for Democracy (NED) funds it. It supports regime change in non-US client states.

It backs opposition groups, conducts propaganda campaigns, and does openly what CIA operatives do covertly to destabilize sitting governments.
