After some suspension of disbelief I now watch mainstream news ONLY to know what it is that didn’t happen and what they want us to think. NYT is the worst.

Yes, COVID trained me not to believe the MSM at all. (To be fair, I guess they can be trusted with sports, weather and maybe the comics page.)

Really? Weather or, in their terms, 'rapidly accelerating climate catastrophe'? As for sports: 'Pay no attention to that collapsed player! Look away, look away!'

The Nation magazine has been an adjunct of the Democratic Party for decades. Controlled opposition in action.

Oh, please! Do you think he and the other shills in the media don't know? They have access to sources at all levels. I would say they are willfully blind, but I don't even believe that. They are conscienceless, utterly unprincipled liars, tout court. They should be among the first to pay for their crimes and their punishments should be as severe as possible.

Indeed. The only "news" I trust is from amateurs live-streaming on their phones. Anybody who can afford professional camera equipment and a crew is suspect. And if it's MSM, I automatically assume the opposite of whatever they're telling me is true.

I know! It's amazing. I do the same, sometimes wondering if that is unreasonable, and then in every case, it turns out they are lying more outrageously and shamelessly--even on things that would normally be considered neutral--than I even imagined.

As an undergraduate at Princeton in the 1960s, I enjoyed reading what was available to me in the Princeton Firestone Library. One thing I enjoyed reading was "Das Reich", Goebbels's prestige weekly during the war years. The political coverage was complete propaganda, but the cultural coverage was very well written and thoroughly worth reading. Goebbels and his subordinates had the sense to realize that well written, unpolitical features were a way to get people to read the propaganda.

Because I now live in the D.C. area, I now subscribe to the Washington Post, largely for the local news. But the features are much more overrun now with woke ideology than features in " Das Reich" were with Nazi ideology. No doubt a scurrilous rag like "Der Stuermer" was different, but it was not a prestige publication, and not what I read.

Wake up, people. Rebel, yes, but rebel smart! At this point, we can all see where society is heading. Billionaires may survive but the rest of us are destined to be cannon fodder, fertilizer or serfs trapped in a bourgeois Groundhog Day.

Rebellion may be the only way out. What does too late look like? What have you got to lose but your livelihood, friends, family, savings, home, possessions,

sanity, hope, liberty, opportunity and future?

I get the peace institute newsletter. I now look at that through a new lens. They seem to be beating the drums for war

Can you send a link for something?

hopefully these links work. Their site's share buttons not working. Just disappointed. I have learned a lot from their newsletters and interviews in past - including the dirty supply chains of woke corporations. Not that I am a Putin fan. Apparently he is going to overthrow the 'deep state' After so much misinformation and suppression of information for Covid I thought people would be a bit more hesitant in just diving in and following a certain narrative. https://www.usip.org/publications/2022/02/ukraine-putin-chooses-his-forever-war#

Tamara is out of prison now, good. What now. Is our funding platform now closed are we going to allow it.

Please go to shawn663

see posting: Canada foreign funding

The funding platforms are the most dangerous ammunition we have, they are very frightened of it.

We need to make sure the platforms are left inplace and unhindered.

Please read the posting mentioned above. Then lets organize and protect our loved ones from the abuse.

All west countries are getting to the same omnipotence delirium of US Police. The famous one that were exporting democracy with war!

US is the head of all this crimes in the last 22 years (at least)

But on the other side, who are all of the erst of western governments? a bunch of cowards turned criminals by convenience.
