Taliban Awash in US Arms, Vehicles, Complicate Afghan War – News From Antiwar.com

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 26, 2017

Fake news from CNN about Russia. CNN attempts to distract us from failure and incompetence in Afghanistan, one of the many places we are warring that have never attacked US.

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/07/25/taliban-awash-in-us-arms-vehicles-complicated-afghan-war/

CNN has attempted to distract from this, focusing instead on a handful of Russian weapons seen in Taliban videos and speculating that the Taliban is getting directly armed by Russia. Yet there’s no question Taliban are armed vastly more with US gear than Russian hand-me-downs, and there’s never a suggestion the US is deliberately arming them.

The reality is that generations of warfare, first against the Soviet Union and later against the United States, has made the Taliban extremely good at coming up with ways to get weapons, and the longer the war drags on, the more US war materiel is being lost to them, turning the Taliban into the best-armed terrorist outfit this side of Syria, a country where the US has been deliberately arming the insurgencies.

The Numbers Don’t Lie: Proof Of Fake News Confirmed

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 30, 2017

https://stonecoldtruth.com/the-numbers-dont-lie-proof-of-fake-news-confirmed/

Back in 2013, CNN reporter Amber Lyon became a whistle blower against CNN, revealing that she got into journalism to expose wrong doing and found herself more and more under the will of CNN big dogs. They wanted her to bend and even outright fabricate the news.She was not willing to keep quiet about that any longer.

Being an Emmy award winning CNN journalist, she learned first hand that our own government routinely pays CNN to selectively report on certain events and even make up fake news stories. Ms. Lyon said she was ordered to report fake stories, delete unfriendly stories adverse to the Obama (Hillary) administration, and construct stories in specific manners while working for the supposedly middle of the road news network.

So when Trump calls CNN a “fake news” station, he knows what he’s talking about.

Just in case you had any doubts

NBC Butchered Putin’s Thoughtful Responses to Megyn Kelly. Good for Ratings — and Warmongers

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 18, 2017

http://russia-insider.com/en/politics/nbc-butchered-putins-thoughtful-responses-megyn-kelly-good-ratings-and-warmongers/ri20062

The segment was Megyn Kelly’s aggressive question to Putin, asking his response to what she said was Americans’ understanding of his government, namely one that murders journalists, suppresses political opposition, is rife with corruption, etc., etc. In the NBC version, Putin’s answer has been cut to one empty introductory statement that “Russia is on its way to becoming a democracy” bracketed by an equally empty closing sentence. In the full, uncut version ,  Read the rest of this entry »

Politico: Trump Repealed Social Security Gun Ban Behind Closed Doors

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 11, 2017

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/04/10/politico-trump-repealed-social-security-gun-ban-behind-closed-doors-hide-benefits-severely-mentally-ill/

The House voted to repeal the gun ban on February 2 and the Senate followed suit on February 15. Immediately thereafter the New York Times (NYT), New York Daily News (NYDN), and The Huffington Post (HuffPo) all reported the vote to repeal as a GOP effort to help the mentally ill get guns.

In reality, the repeal of the Social Security gun ban was about repealing an Obama administration gun control that could strip Social Security recipients of their Second Amendment rights without due process. Read the rest of this entry »

Pentagon Paid PR Firm Over $500 Million to Create Fake Terrorist Videos – Collective Evolution

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 22, 2017

http://www.collective-evolution.com/2016/10/03/pentagon-paid-pr-firm-over-500-million-to-create-fake-terrorist-videos/

We need to make this style of video and we’ve got to use Al-Qaeda’s footage . . . We need it to be 10 minutes long, and it needs to be in this file format, and we need to encode it in this manner.”


These were the specific instructions given to employees of a PR firm responsible for creating fake terrorist videos as part of a top secret propaganda mission paid for by the Pentagon — a mission that cost over half a billion dollars.

This story has come to light thanks to a former employee of the firm, Martin Wells, who came forward to talk about his time working on the project.

Why The Press is Hated . . . – EPautos – Libertarian Car Talk

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 20, 2017

http://ericpetersautos.com/2017/03/18/why-the-press-is-hated/

Firstly, it’s not not “dozens of cities” who will be buying these force-produced electric Edsels. It is the taxpayers of these cities who will be forced to buy them (but not own them) via the extorted funds they are compelled to provide, so that government workers can drive around in the electric Edsels.

This isn’t supply and demand, market forces. It is make-work and wealth transfer. To characterize it as “demand for low-emissions vehicles” is another despicable upchuck of putrefying propaganda that depends upon the stupefaction (or enstupidation) of the reader, who will only allow the morsel to pass by if he is utterly in the dark about basic economic laws.

Government and most people are in the dark about basic economics.

American Media Hide the Truth – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 15, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/03/paul-craig-roberts/american-media-hide-truth/

The American print and TV media are servants of the police state. Ths makes the US media the principal threat that Americans face. The US media is the handmaiden of war, the police state, lies, and evil. The presstitutes have no shame over their lack of integrity and the risk of thermo-nuclear war to which they expose humanity.

Fake You Victoria

Whether you call such criticism “propaganda” or “dissent,” it is absurd to blame it all on Russia. When it comes to “destabilizing people’s trust in institutions,” the E.U. — especially with its inept handling of the Great Recession and its clumsy response to the Syrian refugee crisis — is doing a bang-up job on its own without Russian help.

Julian Assange: ‘When You Read a Newspaper Article, You Are Reading Weaponized Text’

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 21, 2017

“Nothing can be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle.” – Thomas Jefferson, former President,  in a letter to John Norvell, 14 June 1807.

From Breibart

“What is special about WikiLeaks is that it’s not just another damn story,” said Assange, “it’s not just another damn journalist putting their damn byline, advertising themselves and their position on another damn story.”

“You’re not reading pre-weaponised knowledge,” Assange said in discussing WikiLeaks vast database of information. “When you read a newspaper article, you are reading weaponised text that is designed to affect a person just like you… I think that is the real beauty of WikiLeaks… it is that sea of information, that treasure, that intellectual treasure, that rebel library of Alexandria you can go into.”

Fake News is not a new idea.  Even without phrases like “weaponized text” Jefferson makes his point elegantly.
