‘Propaganda 101: The New York Times pumps another ‘evil Russia’ plot’, Finian Cunningham, Oct. 10, 2019, RT.com
“The “newspaper of record” New York Times arguably holds the record for peddling anti-Russia scare stories. This week the NY Times delivered yet another classic spook tale dressed as serious news.
Warning: Absurdist Irony Abounds:
From Patrick Martin at wsws.org, Oct. 9, 2019:
‘Why do the CIA assassins and coup-plotters love this “whistleblower”?’
“Ninety former national security officials under the Obama and Bush administrations—and three who served for a period under Donald Trump—have signed an “Open Letter to the American People” defending the CIA officer, as yet unidentified, whose whistleblower complaint has become the basis for the House of Representatives opening an impeachment inquiry into the president.
‘Trump told Russians their ‘bad’ meddling is the same as ‘good’ meddling – WaPo’s fresh Russiagate resurrection attempt’, RT.com, 28 Sep, 2019
“With the US president facing a Ukraine-linked impeachment probe, the Washington Post has delivered a fresh ‘bombshell.’ Not only does Trump think nothing of Russian interference in 2016, he even said as much to the Russians!
It seems fitting that today is Sept. 11, or in holiday parlance: Patriot’s Day. When I’d seen that on the calendar a few days ago, I almost threw up.
‘What spooked the spooks? What we still don’t know about Russiagate (by Stephen Cohen)’, 6 Sep, 2019, RT.com
“But the question remains: Why did Western intelligence agencies, prompted, it seems clear, by US ones, seek to undermine Trump’s presidential campaign? A reflexive answer might be because candidate Trump promised to “cooperate with Russia,” to pursue a pro-détente foreign policy, but this was hardly a startling, still less subversive, advocacy by a would-be Republican president. All of the major pro-détente episodes in the 20th century had been initiated by Republican presidents: Eisenhower, Nixon, and Reagan.” [snip]
A new victim’s been discovered!
‘Second officer was poisoned with Novichok in Salisbury incident, police reveal’, telegraph.co.uk, August 15, 2019
“Counter Terrorism Detectives, who are investigating the nerve agent attack in 2018, have confirmed that traces of Novichok have been found in a blood sample which was taken at the time from a second police officer.
♫ can’t get enough of that novichok, novichok, novichok...♫
Oops! New York Times corrects Skripal story, says no ‘dead ducks’ or ‘sick kids’ from ‘Novichok’, 6 Jun, 2019, RT.com
“The New York Times has corrected a report that UK officials had shared photos with the CIA depicting children and animals who’d been exposed to the so-called Novichok nerve agent after coming into contact with the Skripals.
A warning heard increasingly fervently among many alternative journalists and bloggers.
