There’s good propaganda and bad propaganda. Bad propaganda is generally crude, amateurish Judy Miller “mobile weapons lab-type” nonsense that figures that people are so stupid they’ll believe anything that appears in “the paper of record.” Good propaganda, on the other?

Do you want solid proof that paid government shills are targeting websites, blogs, forums and social media accounts? For years, many have suspected that government trolls have been systematically causing havoc all over the Internet, but proving it has been difficult. But now thanks to documents leaked by Edward Snowden and revealed by Glenn Greenwald, we finally have hard evidence that western governments have been doing this.

As you will see below, a UK intelligence outfit known as the Government Communications Headquarters, through a previously secret unit known as the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group, has been systematically attempting “to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse.” This should be deeply disturbing to anyone that values free speech on the Internet.

It isn’t just that the British government is trying to influence what people are thinking.  The reality is that this is far bigger than…

The Delusional Western View of the Ukraine—and Everything Else We See

Starship Earth: The Big Picture

I’m afraid Dr. Paul Craig Roberts’ translation of the situation in the Ukraine (below) also accurately reflects the painful reality of Western views concerning the unfolding of not only this, but the bulk of the issues comprising our planet today.

Many of us are so entrenched in our thinking and invested in our opinions that we deny what we see with our own eyes. Denial abounds! What we ‘think’ we know runs interference so we can gallop for the end zone of ‘rightness’, unmolested by pesky clues that there are perhaps additional relevant details in our periphery that we have ignored.

The mere fact that we need an ‘alternative media’ to learn the truth is a testament to the brutal path we have already taken. Yet, even when those sharing the alternatives present the facts, we still question based on our own contaminated idea of what is, and why.

Rome Is On The Verge Of Detroit-Style Bankruptcy

peoples trust toronto

With European peripheral bond yields collapsing every single day to new all time lows (primarily driven by Europe’s near-certainty that a US-style QE is imminent as we first showed here in November, despite Mario Draghi’s own words from November 2011 that a QE intervention is virtually impossible), increasingly more of Europe is trading just as safe, if not more, as the United States. And in keeping with the analogies, considering a major US metropolitan center, Detroit, recently went bankrupt, it is only fair that Europe should sacrifice one of its own historic cities to the gods of negative cash flows. The city in question, Rome, which as the WSJ reports, is “teetering on the brink of a Detroit-style bankruptcy.”

Rome, the eternal city, which survived two millennia of abuse from everyone may be preparing to lay its arms at the hands of unprecedented corruption, capital mismanagement and…

US Imperialism Rolls Out – Invasion, Occupation, Disruption

Impeal

via Peak Crackers, Contributor

GlobalResearch

President Obama has placed whole nations on his Kill List. Syria and Venezuela are to join Libya and Iraq as states that have been made to fail, while Ukraine is snatched into the NATO-EU orbit. “The neo-conservative project for a new American century has reached full fruition under a Democratic president, who now has many notches on his gun.”

The word imperialism fell into disuse in recent decades. If it seems slightly retro, that is only because there aren’t enough Americans committed to telling the ugly truth about their government.

During the cold war era we were told that communism increased in influence via a domino effect, knocking down nations one by one and forcing them into Moscow’s or Beijing’s orbit. In the 21st century there is a new domino theory which puts every part of the world into America’s cross hairs.

India’s Opposition BJP Will Storm the Next Election, a New Poll Finds

World

A Feb. 26 report from the American think tank Pew Research Center has found that Indians want their next government to be led by the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over the incumbent Congress Party by more than 3 to 1.

BJP’s prime ministerial candidate, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, was also viewed favorably by 78% of respondents, compared with Congress’s campaign leader Rahul Gandhi, who was seen favorably by only 50%.

The survey — which sampled the views of 2,464 adults in 15 major states between December and January — also found that 70% of Indians were not pleased with the way things are going in the country today. With national elections only weeks away, that’s decidedly bad news for Congress, which has led India’s coalition government since 2004 but has been struggling to catch up with Modi’s more energetic campaign in recent weeks.

Pew says Indians’ dissatisfaction is…

Sri Lanka Vehemently Rejects Inquiry Into War Crimes

World

Sri Lanka has rejected a call for an international investigation into the war crimes allegedly committed in the country’s bloody civil war, saying it was “tantamount to an unwarranted interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign state.”

The call, made in a report by U.N. human rights chief Navi Pillay, precedes next month’s release of a U.N. Human Rights Council review of Sri Lanka’s progress — or lack of — in investigating the alleged crimes.

Both the Sri Lankan military and the rebel Tamil Tigers are accused of committing crimes including shelling civilians, summary executions, blocking food and aid to civilians and recruiting child soldiers.

It is expected that the U.N. Human Rights Council will consider a resolution establishing an independent international investigation at a meeting in March if no progress is made before then.

As many as 40,000 Tamil civilians may have died in Sri Lanka’s bloody civil…

Gunmen Seize Parliament in Ukraine’s Russian Stronghold

World

The residents of Crimea, a region of southern Ukraine, woke up on Thursday to find their country’s flag over the regional parliament replaced with the Russian tricolor. Overnight, dozens of gunmen had seized the building, taking advantage of the power vacuum that has emerged in Ukraine since last week’s revolution ousted the ruling government. Though the gunmen did not immediately state their demands, local officials said they were from the pro-Russian majority on the Crimean peninsula, which has been up in arms against the nationalist, anti-Russian elements of the uprising that overthrew President Viktor Yanukovych.

Eyewitnesses and local officials said more than 100 armed men had carried bags of assault rifles, grenade launchers and other weapons into the parliament building before sealing themselves inside early Thursday morning. The gunmen told security guards to leave the building, and they have not taken any hostages. “The men who have taken the…

Can Washington Really Overthrow Three Governments Simultaneously?

VoltaireNet

The power of a state is measured by its ability to defend itself and to attack on one or more fronts. In this context, Washington is trying for the first time to show it can overthrow three governments simultaneously: Syria, Ukraine and Venezuela. If it succeeds, no government would be henceforth able to resist it.

Washington, which failed in 2011 to bomb Libya and Syria simultaneously, is now engaged in a new demonstration of its strength: organizing regime change in three states at the same time, in different regions of the world: Syria (CentCom), Ukraine (EuCom) and Venezuela (SouthCom).

To do this, President Obama has mobilized almost the entire National Security Council team.

First, Advisor Susan Rice and Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power. These two women are champions of ?democratic? talk. They have for many years specialized in advocating interference in the internal affairs of other countries…

Former Pope Benedict Denies Claims He Was Forced Out

World

Former Pope Benedict XVI has denied he was forced to step down from the papacy nearly a year ago.

“There is absolutely no doubt regarding the validity of my resignation from the Petrine ministry,” wrote Benedict in a letter that was published on the Italian website Vatican Insider on Wednesday, in response to fresh media claims about the circumstances surrounding his resignation.

The Italian newspaper Libero revived speculation this month that the former head of the Catholic church had been forced to resign from his position because of scandals and allegations of corruption in the Vatican, reports Reuters.

But Benedict called the allegations “absurd”. Vatican law dictates that a pope’s resignation is only valid if the decision is taken in full autonomous freedom, without pressure from others. “The only condition for the validity of my resignation is the complete freedom of my decision. Speculation regarding its validity is simple absurd,” he…

Ukraine Disbands Controversial Riot Police

World

Ukraine’s acting interior minister announced on Wednesday that it had disbanded the country’s elite riot police, known as The Berkut, which has been blamed for deadly attacks on anti-government protesters.

Arsen Avakov, Ukraine’s acting interior minister, wrote on Facebook that he had signed a decree to disband the special unit. The Berkut (“Golden Eagle”) force had between 4,000 and 5,000 members stationed across Ukraine, reports the BBC.

Anti-government protesters have blamed Berkut officers for the deaths of dozens of demonstrators during the recent protests in Kiev, including in violent clashes that left scores of people dead and ultimately led to the toppling of President Viktor Yanukovych.

The special unit has in the past been accused of numerous scandals, including of intervening in  parliamentary elections and brutally cracking down on anti-government demonstrators.

However the decision to disband the unit could potentially inflame tensions in Ukraine’s pro-Russia Crimea, reports the Financial…

Upon getting the news the arrest warrant was issued, he went in hiding, then tried to escape abroad. He changed his mind after the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (el Servicio Bolivariano de Inteligencia Nacional – SEBIN) made public a taped phone conversation. Two men from a Miami-based ultra-right emigrant group discussed the plans to physically liquidate Lopez and then shift the blame on the government of Nicolas Maduro.

Pope Francis Opens Vatican Finances to Outside Scrutiny

World

Pope Francis is permitting greater financial oversight of the Vatican’s scandal-ridden institutions as part of his reformist push within the Catholic church.

A new Secretariat for the Economy will have wide powers “to conduct audits of any agency of the Holy See and Vatican City State at any time,” according to a statement released Monday.

Australian Cardinal George Pell will head the Secretariat, and a 15-member council made up of eight prelates and seven lay financial experts “with strong professional financial experience” will guide its policy-making.

The two institutions at the center of Vatican finance scandals, the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA) and the Institute for Works of Religion (IOR), will remain for the time being, with APSA formally taking the role of the Vatican’s central bank.

Monsignor Ninzio Scarano, a senior accountant at APSA for 22 years, is currently on trial, accused of plotting to…

Ukraine Delays Forming New Government

World

Ukraine’s parliament signaled Tuesday that it will delay forming a new unity government until Thursday, as the country grapples with ongoing political tensions and economic challenges with parliament in charge after the president fled the capital last week.

Parliament speaker Oleksandr Turchinov, who is serving as Ukraine’s interim leader, announced on Tuesday that that a new government should be in place by Thursday, the Associated Press reports. The parliament sacked some of ousted President Viktor Yanukovych’s lieutenants, and has yet to name a new premiere and fill other top posts.

Turchinov has essentially been in charge of the country of 46 million since Yanukovych fled Kiev on Friday after signing a deal with opposition leaders that ended days of bloody protests in the capital. Law enforcement agencies issued an arrest warrant for Yanukovych for the killing of 82 people in the clashes in Kiev. The president’s whereabouts are unknown, but he is believed to be…
