In his 1925 autobiography Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler wrote that the best way to manipulate public opinion en masse was to use the ‘big lie’ – a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” Read More →

Like it or not, this is what democracy looks like.

So, has everyone noticed what’s going on? Has everyone taken stock of the ‘brink’ on which we now stand? July 2016 has been a month of absolute mayhem all over the world, with brutal and bloody terror attacks occurring almost everywhere – much of it no doubt organized and premeditated, and some of it ‘spontaneous’ madness resulting from the former. The main event, however, has undoubtedly been the attempted coup in Turkey, which was effectively an act of war by NATO’s largest member-state against its second-largest. Read More →

Social tension in the US appears to be at a boiling point. In the span of a week we have seen the deaths of two civilians – Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile in Minnesota – at the hands of cops.

A poignant portrait of one of the British government’s terrorists, ruthlessly gunned down by Putin himself.

A headline, from today, on the British Guardian newspaper’s web site:

Murder in Istanbul: Kremlin’s hand suspected in shooting of Chechen

‘Oh, those terrible Russians and that ruthless Putin are up to their old extrajudicial murder tricks again! Will they never learn about real democracy! At least we, the great Western public (and therefore representatives of the ‘global community’), are holding them to account as best we can by imposing ‘sanctions’ and hysterically demonizing them every time they fly a plane near Scotland.’ Read More →

Members of the Turkish air force conduct an aircraft exercise April 11, 2013, at Incirlik Air Base, Turkey.

While it’s pretty clear that the Erdogan government is lying about the shoot-down of the Russian jet, and that it was indeed a deliberately planned provocation as Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov says, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the Erdogan government planned it. Read More →
