U.S. Propaganda : Not Just False But Absurd

Obama, MSM lies and propaganda so transparent a 5th grader can see through it  

By Eric Zuesse

It’s so ridiculous, no intelligent and informed person would give it any serious consideration whatsoever. It insults the public’s intelligence.

White House Propaganda Minister Josh Earnest
heads up the pack of Obama liars
Here’s a typical example of the ridiculousness of U.S. propaganda: On July 16th, the U.S. State Department issued a "Ukraine Travel Warning." It says:

"The Department of State warns U.S. citizens to defer all travel to Crimea and the eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, and recommends those U.S. citizens currently living in or visiting these regions to depart...

Russia-backed separatists continue to control areas in the Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts. 

Despite the signing of a ceasefire agreement by representatives of Ukraine, Russia and the OSCE, violent clashes between combined Russian separatist forces and Ukrainian forces continue in parts of the eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, resulting in thousands of injuries and deaths. The ceasefire agreement established a de facto dividing line between Ukrainian government-controlled and separatist-held areas of Ukraine, with numerous checkpoints controlled by government and separatist forces. Individuals, including U.S. citizens, have been threatened, detained or kidnapped for hours or days after being stopped at separatist checkpoints...

The Department of State also warns U.S. citizens to defer all travel to the Crimean Peninsula, which is occupied by Russia. The Russian Federation is likely to take further actions in Crimea throughout the remainder of 2015 consistent with its attempted unlawful annexation and occupation of this part of Ukraine. The international community, including the United States and Ukraine, does not recognize this purported annexation. The Russian Federation maintains an extensive military presence in Crimea and along the border of eastern Ukraine…"

Pentagon spokesliar, propagandist Barbara Starr keeps the rivers of warmongering bullshit flowing

Prior to the U.S. overthrow of the democratically elected President of Ukraine in February 2014, there was peace throughout Ukraine. Obama (his Administration, as shown in that video) replaced the existing Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovych, who, like all of his predecessors, was corrupt; and the U.S. propaganda-machine publicized his corruption, while virtually ignoring the fact of corruption’s normalcy in at least post-Soviet Ukraine (corruption that had been greatly encouraged by the U.S.). The U.S. didn’t replace him because he was corrupt. 

The U.S. replaced him because he supported a non-aligned Ukraine: neither a stooge to the U.S., nor to Russia. Barack Obama repeatedly asserts that — as he phrased it to West Point cadets on 28 May 2014 — "The United States is and remains the one indispensable nation. [So: all other nations are ‘dispensable.’] That has been true for the century passed [he misspelled ‘past’] and it will be true for the century to come." Adolf Hitler and his Nazis said it for their country more succinctly: "Deutschland ├╝ber alles." Except that Hitler proclaimed that his would be a "Thousand-Year Reich», not merely «for the century to come."

MSM frauds and hacks shilling themselves into war crimes trials as they will be held accountable and responsible for lying America into any future wars - there will be no excuses for them this time around

The U.S. began its overthrow-operation early in 2013. At that time, Yanukovych was still considering offers for Ukraine to join the U.S.-backed European Union, or else to join the Russia-backed Eurasian Economic Community. The EU is much larger, but Ukraine’s centuries-long former association with, and economic extensions from (including favored-nation trading status with) Russia, would have been very costly for Ukraine to sever. Ukraine’s economy had long been based far more on trade with Russia than on with trade with the rest of Europe. 

According to MIT, the "Top 5 export destinations" from Ukraine were: Russia (24%), Egypt (6.5%), Turkey (5.2%), Italy (3.8%), and Kazakhstan (3.5%). The "Top 5 import origins" into Ukraine were: Russia (31%), China (9.0%), Germany (8.2%), Belarus (6.4%), and Poland (5.0%). 

Fox "News" failed attorney, fraud, warmongering hack Megyn Kelly shills for WWIII with Russia

On 19 November 2013, Yanukovych met with the European Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy. The economists at the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences had recently delivered their report to Yanukovych, which concluded that the net loss from joining the EU would be $160 billion. Yanukovych asked the Commissioner, "If we sign, will you help us," so that Ukraine wouldn’t bear the entirety of this enormous cost. 

The Commissioner said, "Sorry," no. (The Commissioner suggested that Ukraine might borrow the money from the IMF — which would be the kind of national suicide that actually occurred after the U.S. overthrew Yanukovych.) 

Transparent treason: Obama appears to believe his own lies

The next day, Yanukovych announced that he was turning down the EU’s offer. Then, according to wikipedia, the "Maidan" demonstrations to oust Yanukovych from power started on 21 November 2013. Brandon Turbeville has described the 40-year-long development of the technology that the CIA and State Department built for that overthrow.

But, in fact, as I documented back in February, "The Entire Case for Sanctions Against Russia Is Pure Lies." The whole case is fraudulent

CNN demented derelict Wolf  Blitzer keeps the terror train rolling down the tracks

So: the U.S. State Department rejects the legitimacy of the overwhelming, and the repeatedly polling-confirmed, desire of the Crimean people to cease being Ukrainian (which they had been only from 1954 to 2014), even though this same U.S. State Department accepts the legitimacy of the Scottish people to determine whether or not to continue being British (which they have been ever since 1707). The sovereign democratic right of Crimeans is denied, while the sovereign democratic right of the Scotts is affirmed. One needs to be a sucker to believe that, but it’s the U.S. Government’s official line.

As for the residents of Donbass ("Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts"), Obama needs to get rid of them, because they had voted over 90% for the man he overthrew. If they stay alive and within Ukraine, then the regime that Obama installed will get voted out of office. 

The vile Victoria "Fuck the EU" Nuland receives the Adolph Hitler Award for Depopulation from Ukrainian Nazis

In fact, that’s the reason why Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin, has insisted that they remain within Ukraine — so that they will vote out of office the anti-Russian racist fascists that Obama installed, next door to Russia, in Ukraine. 

Laughing stock: John Kerry
That’s as if during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, the dictator of the Soviet Union, Nikita Khruschev, had grabbed control over not only Cuba but even over Mexico right on America’s border. Would the United States have tolerated that, then? So, Putin doesn’t tolerate this, now. The irony is that it’s Putin who wants the "pro-Russian rebels" to remain as part of Ukraine; and it’s Obama who wants them not to be — even while he claims that Putin does, and asserts that Putin is the aggressor.

"Fifth - we must continue to stand united against Russia’s aggression in Ukraine. (Applause.) Keep in mind that, repeatedly, President Putin has ignored the opportunity to resolve the crisis in Ukraine diplomatically. The United States, the European Union, our partners around the world have all said we prefer a diplomatic solution. But in light of Russia’s unwillingness to seize that opportunity, we have come together to impose major sanctions on Russia for its actions."

A more devilishly lying country than the United States of today is hard to imagine. It’s even a dictatorship: its government represents not the public (as its Founders had intended) but its aristocracy (which those Founders had tried to overthrow — and did overthrow, in their own era).

The U.S. Government holds the public everywhere in contempt.

War Of A Thousand Lies : Obama “Safe Zone” In Syria Will INFLAME THE WAR

Obama, NATO Nazis, Breedlove and his Pentagon fruitcakes determined to spark WWIII before the end of his term in office  

By Shamus Cooke

The road to war is paved with a thousand lies. A fresh fib was tossed on the lie-cluttered warpath to Syria, when it was announced that the U.S. and Turkey would create a “safe zone” inside of Syria — supposedly to be aimed against ISIS.

This “safe zone” is a major escalation of war, but it was described in soft tones by the media, sounding almost cuddly. In reality, however, a “safe zone” is a “no-fly zone,” meaning that a nation is planning to implement military air superiority inside the boundaries of another nation. It’s long recognized by the international community and U.S. military personnel as a major act of war. In a war zone an area is made “safe” by destroying anything in it or around that appears threatening.

Turkey has been demanding this no-fly zone from Obama since the Syrian war started. It’s been discussed throughout the conflict and even in recent months, though the intended goal was always the Syrian government.

And suddenly the no-fly zone is happening — right where Turkey always wanted it — but it’s being labeled an “anti-ISIS” safe zone, instead of its proper name: “Anti Kurdish and anti-Syrian government” safe zone.

The U.S. media swallowed the name change without blinking, but many international media outlets knew better. For instance, the International Business Times reported “ [the safe zone deal]…could mark the end of [Syrian President] Assad…”

And The Middle East Eye reported:

“…[the safe zone] marks a breakthrough for Turkey in its confrontation with the Bashar al-Assad government in Syria. If the no-fly zone does come into being it will be a body blow for Assad and his supporters”

Even U.S. media outlets acknowledged that the primary goal of Obama’s safe zone ally, Turkey, was defeating the Kurdish fighters and the Syrian government, both of whom have been the most effective fighters against ISIS.

Syrian regime change is also the goal of the ground troops who will be filling the void left by ISIS, who The New York Times labeled “relatively moderate Syrian insurgents,” a telling euphemism.

The New York Times confirmed the goals of the safe zone allies: “…both the Turks and the Syrian insurgents see defeating President Bashar al-Assad of Syria as their first priority…” If the Syrian government wasn’t the target of the safe zone, then Syrian government troops would be the ones to control the safe zone post ISIS, as they did before ISIS. And if regime change wasn’t the target, then the Syrian government would have been consulted and coordinated with to attack ISIS, since Syria is involved with heavy fighting against ISIS in the same region that the safe zone is being carved out.

These steps weren’t taken because the “safe zone” plan is much bigger than ISIS.

Obama hasn’t detailed who the “relatively moderate” fighters are that will control the safe zone, but it’s easy to guess. We only have to look at the Syrian rebels on the ground who are effective fighters and control nearby territory.

The most powerful non-ISIS group in the region recently re-branded itself as the “Conquest Army,” a coalition of Islamic extremists led by Jabhat al-Nusra — the official al-Qaeda affiliate — and the group Ahrar al-Sham, whose leader previously stated that his group was “the real al Qaeda.” The Conquest Army actively coordinates with Turkey and Saudi Arabia, and is also populated with U.S.-trained fighters.

These groups share the ideology and tactics of ISIS, the only difference being their willingness to work with the United States and Turkey. It’s entirely likely that once the “safe zone” operation starts, many ISIS troops will simply change shirts and join Jabhat al-Nusra, since there is no principled difference.

Obama knows that the foreign ground troops controlling the “safe zone” are targeting the Syrian government; consequently, U.S. military planes will be acting as the de-facto air force for Al-Qaeda against the Syrian government.

Thus, direct military confrontation with the Syrian government is inevitable. President Assad is already attacking ISIS in the area that the U.S.-Turkey alliance wants to make “safe” via its coordinated military operation. Syrian fighter jets will eventually be targeted, since the goal is to allow extremist groups a “safe zone” to continue their attacks on the Syrian government after ISIS is dealt with.

This danger was also acknowledged by The New York Times:

“Whatever the goal, the plan [safe zone] will put American and allied warplanes closer than ever to areas that Syrian aircraft regularly bomb, raising the question of what they will do if Syrian warplanes attack their partners [“relatively moderate rebels”] on the ground.”

The answer is obvious: U.S. and Turkish fighter jets will engage with Syrian aircraft, broadening and deepening the war until the intended aim of regime change has been accomplished.

This is exactly how events developed in Libya, when the U.S.-NATO led a “no-fly zone” that was supposedly created to allow a “humanitarian corridor,” but quickly snowballed into its real goal: regime change and assassination of Libya’s president. This epic war crime is still celebrated by Obama and Hillary Clinton as a “victory,” while Libyans drown in the Mediterranean to escape their once-modern but now obliterated country.

Insane, Strangelovian NATO commander desk jockey Philip Breedlove insistent he get to play with his nuclear toys

If Obama’s goal in Syria was actually defeating ISIS, this could have been achieved at any time, in a matter of weeks. It would simply take a serious and coordinated effort with U.S. regional allies, while coordinating with the non-allies already fighting ISIS: Syria, Iran, and Hezbollah.

If Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Jordan were involved in the fight on ISIS it would be quickly strangled of cash, guns, and troops, and be massively out-powered. War over.

The only reason this hasn’t happened is that the U.S. and its allies have always viewed ISIS as a convenient proxy against Syria, Hezbollah, and Iran, not to mention leverage against the Iran-friendly government of Iraq.

CNN demented CIA dupe, fraud, war whore Cristaine Amanpour shrieks for WWIII

Turkey remains the biggest obstacle to defeating ISIS, since it’s been helping it for years. ISIS has long used the Turkish border to escape Syrian government attacks, seek medical assistance, and get supplies and reinforcements. 

ISIS is so welcomed inside Turkey that ISIS promotes Turkey on social media as the international transit hub for jihadis wanting to join ISIS. Turkish immigration and customs looks the other way, as does the Turkish border control.

In discussing the “safe zone,” the U.S. media always ignore the concept of national sovereignty — the basis for international law. The boundaries of countries are sacred from the standpoint of international law. The only just war is a defensive one. When one country implements a no-fly zone in another country, national boundaries are violated and international law is broken by an act of war.

The Obama administration is aware of the above dynamics, but has again tossed caution to the wind as he did in 2013, during the ramp up to its aborted bombing campaign against the Syrian government.

A U.S.-Turkish no-fly zone will deepen an already regional war: Iran and Hezbollah have recently ramped up direct support of the Syrian government. As Turkish and the U.S. military enter the war space for the first time, confrontation is inevitable. Confrontation is the plan.

VA Hospital Threw Patient Files In Trash In Expanding VA Scandal

VAGate, IRSGate, NSAGate; Obama, MSM make sure Jenner tops list of "news" in ongoing attempt to divert from scandals engulfing White House as scumbag "reporters" now begin to refer to VA benefits as unearned "entitlements"    


A Veterans Affairs hospital in North Dakota dumped the personal data of 1,100 veterans during an office move, and waited two months to inform them about it. Critics are citing the incident as an example of mismanagement at the scandal-ridden agency.

Personal information – including names, Social Security numbers, phone numbers and addresses – of 1,000 veterans ended up in the trash in May, the Veterans Affairs Black Hills Healthcare System announced on Friday. 

The agency says the files were thrown out by mistake during a May 15 move at the Hot Springs campus. 

An employee noticed the box in the dumpster two days later, and the files were retrieved and secured by Veterans Affairs (VA) police.

Teresa Forbes, public affairs officer for the VA Black Hills, told the Rapid City Journal that the files were “part of a patient list generated for internal compliance purposes,” and did not contain the veterans’ medical data.

“The investigation found that during a regular office move, that the box of files were inadvertently thrown in the receptacle,” Forbes said. “It was just an unfortunate mistake during an office move.”

VA scandal exposure originated in Phoenix and spread across the country

Asked why the agency waited almost ten weeks to send out a notice, Forbes said that “VA Black Hills worked within the time frames set by our policies to ensure the investigation was thorough, all affected veterans were identified, and resources put in place to assist veterans.”

An internal investigation did not determine which employee was at fault.

Lest we forget: Dead military personnel body parts dumped in landfill

Due to the fact that the files remained in the dumpster on the campus until they were retrieved, the VA is “very confident that we don’t anticipate that their information has been targeted or will be misused,” Forbes told the newspaper.

Following agency protocols and policies, the VA sent a letter to the 1,100 veterans affected by the security lapse, offering them options to check on the integrity of their personal information. 

The three options proposed in the letter are to obtain a credit report from one of the national reporting agencies, enroll in an identity theft monitoring service program managed by a VA corporate partner, or place a fraud alert on their credit reports. 

The latter “could also delay the process when you seek to obtain credit,” the VA letter noted.

Senator John Thune, a South Dakota Republican, has blasted the incident as a case of "gross mismanagement." The dumpster incident was “unfortunately illustrative of the continued decline of the Hot Springs VA and the indifference shown to it by the Veterans Administration,” Thune said in a statement Friday.

“Congress should pass additional VA accountability measures," Thune added, "and the Black Hills VA leadership needs to focus on restoring, not degrading, our Hot Springs VA.”

The Black Hills VA is based in Fort Meade, South Dakota and serves 19,000 veterans residing in South Dakota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wyoming.

Last year, whistleblowers revealed that Veterans Affairs hospitals have manipulated patient waiting lists, which caused the deaths of seriously ill veterans. An agency report linked 23 of the reported 40 deaths in multiple states to delayed treatment.

Another investigation found thousands of claims collecting dust in filing cabinets for years, while potential recipients passed away.

The VA provides $95 billion worth of entitlements each year, including healthcare, education and training, disability money, pensions to veterans and their surviving spouses, and burial benefits. According to the agency’s own figures from 2008, of the 23.4 million military veterans, only 8.5 million – 36 percent – were receiving benefits and services.
