Bill Donohue comments on New York City Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio’s transition committee: Yesterday, Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio announced the appointment of 60 New York leaders to his transition committee. He instructed them to “identify women and men from every part of our city and walk of life” that wants a better New York.
Many recent commentaries have noted a distinct devolution in the numerical lies which the U.S. government calls its “economic statistics”. Numbers which used to be mere exaggerations (i.e. used to somewhat mirror the real world) have now become literally perverse: opposite to reality.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk called on the Ministry of Defense and the General Staff to put troops on full combat alert Monday.
“This [situation in crisis-hit Donbas] demands the Defense Ministry and the General Staff to put Ukrainian armed forces on full combat alert,” he told regional administration chiefs at a video conference. He also called for equipping air-raid shelters.
Everything we hear from the US government, the puppet governments of its vassal states, and the presstitute media is a lie. Truth is the declared enemy of the West. Those who try to tell the truth do so at cost to themselves. These costs can range from exclusion and slander to watch lists to prosecution and imprisonment. Brave people like Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, William Binney, and Bradley Manning have paid an extremely high price for standing up for truth against evil.
Hundreds of students walked out of classrooms in suburban Denver on Wednesday in the largest protest yet of a conservative-led school board proposal to focus U.S. history lessons on topics that promote citizenship, patriotism and respect for authority — a show of civil disobedience that the new criteria would aim to downplay.
The student protest in Jefferson County, involving six high schools in the state’s second-largest school district, follows a sick-out by teachers that shut down two high schools in the politically and economically diverse area, which has become a key political battleground.
Student participants said their action was organized by word of mouth and social media. Many waved U.S. flags and carried signs with messages such as “There is nothing more patriotic than protest.”
“It was kind of just spur of the moment,” Ashlyn Maher, a Chatfield senior who helped organize Wednesday’s protest, told the Denver Post. “I heard one teacher was so moved by people leaving that she started to cry.”
They don’t call it the “gutter press” for nothing. But Western so-called news media sunk to new toxic depths over the weekend in their coverage of the Malaysian airliner downed over Ukraine – and the death of all 298 people on board.
It was a veritable media-orgy of lies, propaganda and vilification spewed out by [Rothschild’s] American and European corporate news outlets. Whether online, television, or newspaper, the media went into overdrive to lay the blame for the disaster on Russia or “Russian-backed rebels” in Ukraine.
Of course, informed people around the world know that the Western mainstream media operates as a propaganda machine for powerful elite interests. But what is astounding is just how brazen the brainwashing purpose has become.
