NYT Still Joking Around About Dead Americans in Afghanistan

Do they have editors at this paper anymore, or it's all just pre-packaged in Langley? In an article about three marines who should have never been in Afghanistan in the first place getting killed there in a suicide truck bombing last year, they 1 try to push their Russian bounties hoax some more, while 2 admitting that they've got no case to make even though this is their 9th or 10th article in a series on this obvious lie: "American intelligence agencies are investigating whether that car bomb was detonated at the behest of a Russian military agency paying bounties to Afghan militia...

Roger Stone Is Free, Another Fake Scandal

On FPF #517, I discuss top news, including Trump's commuting of Roger Stone's jail sentence. Democrats are attempting to roll this story into the Russiagate conspiracy theory, which now includes Bountygate. While the opposition to Trump is enraged by their own fake news, Trump is ramping up cold wars with Russia, and Congress is taking advantage of the distracted public to give away more of our tax dollars to their donors.  Links Gareth Porter on Red Lines Intercept - Bail Reform Intercept - Hawkish Super PAC enters Maine GOP...

Shame On You, Charlie Savage

Originally published June 26. We all know you know better than to write such garbage as this. Someone says that "intelligence" says that the Russians are paying to have Americans killed in Afghanistan, huh? And you put your name on that? I mean sure, if you were David Sanger, but you're Charlie Savage and that means that you have really done a terrible, terrible thing here. And in paragraphs 5 and 6 you admit that you don't know that it's true at all. "An operation to incentivize the killing of American and other NATO troops would be a significant and provocative escalation of what...

Virginia Pro-gun Demonstrators Reject Extremists, Defend Rights

Even NBC has to admit the masses are not the fringe racist kooks they wish they were. "But the rally was largely peaceful, with no reported arrests or violence, despite the presence of some extremist groups whose potential participation had been cited as reasons for the firearm ban. ... "Jay Lowe, who was in the crowd on the Capitol grounds, said gun-control supporters were wrong to think that people were safer where firearms were restricted. “So many people are misinformed and think you are safer because you take my guns away," Lowe, who lives in Chesterfield County, south of Richmond,...

Alt Media was Exposing Epstein Corruption as ABC was Covering it Up—Who’s the Real Fake News?

One of the largest stories in the news this week was the ABC anchor who was recorded on a hot microphone ranting about how the network suppressed her story on Jeffrey Epstein and his ties to the elite — three years ago. While this admission was certainly noteworthy, it should come as no surprise. Over the past few years, the mainstream media, in general, has refused to report on any of Epstein’s ties to current and past government officials, Hollywood insiders, and even royalty. Now, as the “Epstein didn’t kill himself” memes storm the internet, it has all of the sudden become “cool” to...

The Real Meaning of ‘Fake News’

That there are still people among the general public that take everything they hear and see on cable and broadcast news programs as gospel, is a testament to the “success” of government schools. 15,000 hours of indoctrination doesn’t help with discernment, but surely assists in making sure “the powers that be” have a grip on how you perceive and process what is being fed to you. Fake news, fake news, fake news! In my opinion that phrase will remain part of the zeitgeist forever. For our purposes we are not talking about “fake news” (maybe a little) but selective information meant to steer...

The Militarization Of The American Mind

It's become obvious the government (mainly the security state) wants to completely take over social media (they probably have already).  Now ICE is going to use fake accounts to monitor the social media of foreigners seeking to enter the country.  Eventually, this program will expand, they always do. Homeland Security explained the change to the AP in a statement Friday, stating that fake accounts would make it easier for agents reviewing visa, green card and citizenship applications to search for fraud or security threats.  Even though this goes against Facebook and Twitter policy and...
