Media Criticism of Putin’s Invasion Rings Hollow

ukrainetroops

With Russia’s attack on Ukraine underway, the corporate media is awash with openly hostile coverage of the conflict, embedded with an implicit premise that the Russian Aggressor has invented an empty pretext for the invasion of its neighbor. Concerns over NATO, it suggests, are merely cover for an expansionist dictator hellbent on conquering Europe. Vladimir Putin’s ongoing incursion into Ukraine is excessive and unjustified. The deaths of innocent civilians are on his hands, and steps short of an assault were likely available to him. (A true peacekeeping mission to defend...

Resist Biden’s Teetering Vax Mandate!

pexels gustavo fring 3985170

The Biden vaccine mandate appears to be falling apart before it’s even in place. From first responders to truck drivers to everyone in-between, the message is clear: many thousands are willing to be fired from their jobs rather than be forced to take a medical procedure they do not want. They have leverage and they are using it. We should support them. Grocery shelves are bare, shipping containers continue to float offshore, firehouses in New York are shut down, the Los Angeles County Sheriff warns that, in the middle of a crime wave, half of his deputies may quit or be fired.

COI #184: Russiagate Lies Expose Clinton Campaign Origins

coi184b

On COI #184, Kyle Anzalone breaks down John Durham's indictment of Igor Danchenko for lying to the FBI about his sources for the Steele Dossier. The Dossier was funneled by the Clinton campaign to the FBI, and then into the mainstream media. The cooperate press restlessly pushed former national security officials infront of the American people to explain that they knew - without question - that the American president was a puppet of Russia, with the Steele Dossier as evidence. The arrest of Danchenko is further proof that Russiagate was no more than a Clinton campaign trick. Odysee...

COI #171: How the Pentagon Influences Corporate Media

coi171

On COI #171, Matthew Hoh returns to the show to discuss his experience with the mainstream media after becoming a whistleblower in the early Obama presidency. Hoh appeared in and on the most important US print and television outlets. However, because he was speaking out against the war in Afghanistan, the Pentagon quickly worked to discredit Hoh. America’s top news outlets caved to Pentagon pressure without pushback and deprived Americans of Hoh’s important viewpoint.  Matthew Hoh is a senior fellow with the Center for International Policy and a member of the Eisenhower Media Network...

7/16/21 Branko Marcetic on the Julian Assange Media Blackout

Branko Marcetic discusses the stunning lack of mainstream media coverage of Julian Assange's case. Besides being the right thing to do, since Assange has heroically helped expose heinous crimes by many of the world's governments, journalists also have a selfish reason to care about Assange's plight: what he does at WikiLeaks is not categorically different from what any of them does when covering stories that originated from leaked documents. And yet nearly everyone in the press seems content to let Assange rot in solitary confinement. Discussed on the show: "The Julian Assange Media...

5/13/21 Max Blumenthal on the Real History of Israel-Palestine

Scott talks to Max Blumenthal about the true state of affairs between Israel and Palestine, which you won't hear about in most mainstream media sources. Although the situation is often depicted as two neighboring states engaged in a religious conflict, the truth is that the Palestinians are second-class citizens in what has become a de facto single apartheid state. The widely-publicized rocket attacks are the actions of an oppressed minority fighting back in the only way they can. Any violence against Israeli civilians is of course condemnable, but we can't lose sight of the fact that...

Don’t Stop with Chauvin: A List of Unprosecuted Killer Cops

charges chauvin 660x330

On Tuesday former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin found guilty of unintentional second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Chauvin was seen on video kneeling on the neck of George Floyd — who was handcuffed and not resisting — for over 8 minutes, until he died. Had video of the incident not existed, the chances of Chauvin even being charged would have been non-existent. Even with the video, Chauvin’s case is extremely rare as cops who kill are almost never held accountable. Finding a police officer facing a murder charge for an on-duty shooting is...

COI #99 – Chauvin Found Guilty as the Capitol Riot Narrative Collapses

COI_Logo

Patrick MacFarlane – host of Liberty Weekly – returns to the show to discuss Derek Chauvin’s murder conviction and a DC medical examiner finding that Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes. The guilty verdict for Chauvin came after a weeks-long trial that was the center of national attention. Kyle and Pat break down some mistakes the prosecution made, despite getting convictions on all counts. Pat explains some legal theories important to the trial and the theater of a trial. The autopsy of Capitol officer Sicknick has been released, with the medical examiner...

Joe Biden’s Threat Against the Fourth of July

pexels tairon fernandez 450301

Last week President Biden addressed the nation on the first anniversary of the coronavirus being declared a “pandemic.” It was a disturbing speech, warning us that the “hopeful spring” will only emerge “from a dark winter” if all Americans “stick with the rules.” Whose rules? His rules. The message from the president was clear: he will only allow us to have some of our freedoms back if we do exactly as he tells us. It was the language of extortion, of a bank robber who demands you do what he says or face the consequences. It was not the language of someone we are told is the leader of the...
