US Senator Joe Manchin said at the World Economic Forum on Monday that he opposes any kind of peace agreement between Ukraine and Russia.Manchin, who at the moment is one of the most powerful elected officials in Washington, added that only the complete forcible ejection of Russia from all of Ukraine is acceptable, that the war should ideally be us…
 
We're in the final countdown to British Home Secretary Priti Patel's decision on the fate of Julian Assange, with the WikiLeaks founder's extradition to the United States due to be approved or rejected by the end of the month. Joe Lauria has a new article out with Consortium News on the various pressures that Patel is being faced with from both sid…

The Ukrainian government is quickly learning that it can say anything, literally anything at all, about what's happening on the ground there and get it uncritically reported as an actual news story by the mainstream western press.The latest story making the rounds is a completely unevidenced claim made by a Ukrainian government official that Russia…
 
Twitter has published what it calls a "crisis misinformation policy" announcing that it will be actively reducing the visibility of content found to be false which pertains to "situations of armed conflict, public health emergencies, and large-scale natural disasters."If you've been paying attention to the dramatic escalations in online censorship …
 
Oh my God. It happened. I can't believe it really happened.During a speech in Dallas at Southern Methodist University’s George W Bush Presidential Center on Wednesday, the man himself, George W Bush, did the best thing ever. I am pretty sure it is the single best thing that has ever happened. I do not believe I am exaggerating when I say that.While…
 
People who think Tucker Carlson is fighting the establishment are exactly the same as people who think "the Squad" is fighting the establishment. Exactly the same. Same people, slightly different bumper stickers.It's obvious that every member of the "populist right" who's now getting praise for being correct about Ukraine will function as virulent …
 
Really, when it comes right down to it, things are a mess because humans are in a very awkward and confusing stage in our development as a species.Our giant brains evolved faster than we could adjust to, and now we're these scared little apex predators stumbling around the earth with massive prefrontal cortices overlaying a bunch of deep primordial…
 
NBC's Meet the Press just aired an absolutely freakish segment in which the influential narrative management firm Center for a New American Security (CNAS) ran war games simulating a direct US hot war with China.CNAS is funded by the Pentagon and by military-industrial complex corporations Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, and Lockheed Martin, as well as…
 
Celebrities have been particularly odious empire sycophants these last few days, and it's probably worth taking a moment to reflect on what's going on when that happens.Reading by Tim Foley.โดย Caitlin Johnstone
 
Public approval of the Israeli apartheid regime, like approval of the US police, has plummeted in direct proportion to the ubiquitousness of video cameras. In much the same way DNA testing vindicated prisoners who'd insisted on their innocence for years, a new technological development proved true what a marginalized population had been saying all …
 
The US House of Representatives has voted 368-57 to spend $40 billion on a world-threatening proxy war while ordinary Americans struggle to feed themselves and their children. All 57 "no" votes were Republicans. Every member of the small faction of progressive House Democrats popularly known as "The Squad" voted yes.The massive proxy war bill then …
 
All the Democratic Party's actions make sense when you switch from thinking of it as a political party whose job is to enact the will of voters to thinking about it as a narrative control operation whose job is to prevent the local riff raff from tampering with the gears of a globe-spanning empire.Reading by Tim Foley.…
 
The Biden administration has asked top Democrats to decouple the federal government's Covid relief spending package from its much larger bill for funding of the US proxy war against Russia in Ukraine, because one of those two things is too controversial and contentious to pass quickly.Guess which one.Reading by Tim Foley.…
 
As we hydroplane toward the brink of nuclear armageddon while Bono and the Edge play U2 songs in Kyiv, it's probably worth taking a moment to highlight the fact that this entire war could have been avoided if the US had simply pledged military protection for Zelensky against the far right extremists who were threatening to lynch him if he enacted t…
 
Allowing the world to come this close to nuclear war already makes Biden the worst US president since Bush. At least. History may well show his to be the single most depraved presidency of all time.Preventing nuclear war is a US president's single most important job. It's so important you shouldn't even really have to talk about it, because it's so…
 
I've been watching The John Wayne Gacy Tapes on Netflix, which features previously unheard recordings of the serial killer known as "The Killer Clown" who murdered at least 33 teenage boys and young men in the 1970s. I wasn't able to finish it because I don't have that kind of stomach, but what jumped out at me listening to him was the way he talke…
 
Multipolarista's Ben Norton reports that Former Brazilian president Lula da Silva, who is still favored to beat Bolsonaro in the nation's election later this year, has announced plans to create a Latin American currency called the "Sur" (South) in order to "be freed of the dollar." Lula is also making headlines today for his position that president…
 
Joe Biden doing a live infomercial for Javelin missiles while everyone who voted for him worries about women's reproductive rights is the most Joe Biden thing that has ever happened.Reading by Tim Foley.โดย Caitlin Johnstone
 
The last few days in the United States have seen a parade of wealthy freaks fellating each other's egos and preening for the cameras in outlandish garb while ordinary Americans suffer more and more.Reading by Tim Foley.โดย Caitlin Johnstone
 
I feel the need to reiterate once again that the censorship we're seeing about Ukraine is of a whole new kind than anything we've seen before. There's no pretense that it's done to save lives or protect democracy this time around, it's just "We need to control the thoughts that people think about this war."Once it was accepted that disinformation a…
 
Rightists have spent the last couple of days freaking out and invoking Orwell's 1984 in response to something their political enemies are doing in America, and for once it's for a pretty good reason. The Department of Homeland Security has secretly set up a "Disinformation Governance Board", only informing the public about its plans for the institu…
 
In what appears to be yet another escalation in Silicon Valley's redoubled efforts to quash dissident voices since the beginning of the Ukraine war, PayPal has just blocked the accounts of multiple alternative media voices who've been speaking critically against official US empire narratives. These include journalist and speaker Caleb Maupin and Mn…
 
If you're on the side of the US empire on any issue you are on the wrong side. This doesn't mean the other side is always necessarily in the right, it just means a globe-spanning empire that's held together by lies, murder and tyranny will always be in the wrong. Yes, it is that simple.Reading by Tim Foley.…
 
Everyone's anti-war until the war propaganda starts. Nobody thinks of themselves as a warmonger, but then the spin machine gets going and before you know it they're spouting the slogans they've been programmed to spout and waving the flags the flags they've been programmed to wave and consenting to whatever the imperial war machine wants in that mo…
 
You don't get to be a billionaire, much less a billionaire with massively influential media ownership, unless you collaborate with existing power structures. Musk has certainly been collaborating with the oligarchic empire very nicely up until this point, and it's a safe bet that his purchase would not be happening if the empire felt its narrative …
 
This is just a quick article to remind everyone of my standing offer to please use my work however they like, and that it isn't necessary to attribute any words I've written to me if you don't want to. I think a reminder is due because lately I've been seeing more people take me up on this repeated offer on social media, with people sharing quotes …
 
The news man tells me the CIA's "Queen of Torture" now runs a life and beauty coaching business which helps midlife women “look good, feel good, and do good.”"HI, I'M FREDA, A CERTIFIED BEAUTY AND LIFE COACH READY TO HELP YOU OWN YOUR BEAUTY FROM THE INSIDE OUT AND FEEL INVINCIBLE IN MIDLIFE," her website reads in all caps.And I can only sit here a…
 
This is happening at the same time the United States and the United Kingdom are loudly demanding accountability for alleged war crimes by the Russian military in Ukraine, which is interesting because attempting to bring accountability for war crimes is precisely why Julian Assange is in prison.Reading by Tim Foley.…
 
You were born in the middle of the most sophisticated and expansive mass-scale perception management operation that has ever taken place.The news media is propaganda and schooling is designed to condition us to accept that propaganda.Public understanding of what a normal moderate position looks like and what a radical extremist position looks like …
 
It's impossible to overstate how completely blanketed by propaganda distortion the Ukraine war is. US spooks saying they're leaking disinfo to the press, Ukrainian war propaganda, the blackout on Ukrainian losses, the uncritical media acceptance of allegations against Russia, etc. This war is a propaganda campaign wrapped in a psyop.Reading by Tim …
 
The one argument you'll get, if you really press the issue, is that the United States is in a propaganda war with Russia, and it is in our society's interests for our media institutions to help the United States win that propaganda war. Cold wars are fought between nuclear powers because hot warfare would risk annihilating both nations, leaving onl…
 
It's not healthy to seek control over what people say and think. Free speech is important not because it makes people sad when they don't get to say what they want, but because the free exchange of ideas and information is how we collectively bring awareness to problems, change minds, stir the zeitgeist, and, if necessary, organize mass resistance.…
 
We're about to see a judge sign off on Julian Assange's extradition to the United States for exposing the empire's war crimes while that same empire blasts us all in the face with an unprecedented war propaganda campaign about rescuing Ukraine's freedom and democracy."Russia must be held accountable for its war crimes," said the empire while impris…
 
The New York Times is naming and shaming Ukrainian men who've fled the country rather than stay and kill Russians for Washington, because it was illegal for men of military age to leave, and because their countrymen are angry at them, and because it's the New York Times.Reading by Tim Foley.โดย Caitlin Johnstone
 
No, the US State Department does not care about human rights abuses. Blinken's remarks are just the latest in a series of shots across the bow that the US empire has been firing at New Delhi to warn it against moving into alignment with Moscow. Reading by Tim Foley.โดย Caitlin Johnstone
 
If you've got a gut feeling that your rulers are working to control your perception of the war in Ukraine, it is safe to trust that feeling.Reading by Tim Foley.โดย Caitlin Johnstone
 
Can't believe we've been watching people lose their social media accounts for posting "misinformation" this whole time only for US officials to come right out and admit that they've been running an active disinformation campaign where they knowingly circulate lies about Russia.Reading by Tim Foley.โดย Caitlin Johnstone
 
Regardless of whether you agree with Galloway's argument or not, this all overlooks the innate absurdity of a government-tied social media corporation like Twitter labeling other people "state-affiliated media". Twitter is state-affiliated media. It has been working in steadily increasing intimacy with the United States government since the US empi…
 
NBC News has a new report out citing multiple anonymous US officials, humorously titled "In a break with the past, U.S. is using intel to fight an info war with Russia, even when the intel isn't rock solid". The officials say the Biden administration has been rapidly pushing out "intelligence" about Russia's plans in Ukraine that is "low-confidence…
 
People lost their minds when President Biden uttered the phrase "new world order" last month and were quickly informed by mainstream "fact checkers" that this does not validate longstanding conspiracy theories about an elite agenda to create a one-world government. In reality, though, the real agenda to create a one-world government is not some hid…
 
US military interventionism always makes things worse and never accomplishes what its proponents claim it will accomplish. It's stupid to have to keep saying this year after year. There's nothing wrong in Ukraine that direct US military intervention couldn't make much, much worse.Reading by Tim Foley.…
 
Ukraine is still accepting foreign volunteers. If these omnicidal war sluts are so horny for "direct military involvement" against Russia, I wish they would just get on a plane and go do it themselves without trying to drag all of humanity into it with them.You want direct military involvement? Fine. Go do it yourself. Be the direct military involv…
 
On the empire's grand chessboard, Russia is the queen piece, but China is the king. Just as with chess it helps to take out your opponent's strongest piece to more easily pursue checkmate, the US empire would be well advised to try and topple China's nuclear superpower friend and, as Consortium News editor-in-chief Joe Lauria recently put it, "ulti…
 
Fucking ridiculous that it's 2022 and it's still a shocking and controversial position to say your government and media are lying to you about a fucking war.You know you're living under an empire with the most sophisticated propaganda machine that's ever existed when it can lie about literally every war it's ever been involved in and then when you …
 
People say "This is not a proxy war! How dare you call this a proxy war?"Pouring billions of dollars worth of weaponry into a foreign nation to be used by CIA-trained fighters with the direct ongoing assistance of US military intelligence is in fact the exact thing that a proxy war is. That is what those words mean.If the Ukraine war is not a proxy…
 
So the US government is continuing its established policy of refusing to attempt any high-level diplomatic resolutions to this war despite its public hand-wringing about the horrific violence that's being inflicted upon the people of Ukraine. This revelation fits nicely with a recent report by Bloomberg's Niall Ferguson that sources in the US and U…
 
The swelling likelihood of imminent armageddon draws everything into focus. Helps clarify your priorities. Helps you figure out how to live your life from moment to moment.And from where I'm sitting this clarity brings with it a sense of responsibility as a human being. A responsibility to really be here now. To truly live our lives with presence a…
 
You know you are being aggressively propagandized about Ukraine by the mass media and by Silicon Valley. You can feel it in your guts. Everyone can feel it, on some level. It feels gross. The split on this issue is between those who trust this gut feeling and those who choose to psychologically compartmentalize away from it. Because if you don't co…
