Most corrupt ‘teaching’ union ever: Democratic & Republican Parties unioned with corporate media

Teaching is the art and science of people seeing/learning reality for themselves. Once ignited, passion for learning becomes a life-long expression.
Our Orwellian world of the present witnesses a union of ‘leaders’ in government and corporate media ‘teaching’ the 99% public that what’s good are:
Unlawful war-murders, our economy, corporate media journalism. This Government/Media Union is not teaching, but herding the public into chosen areas of propaganda, as the above links easily explain, document, and prove. Government/Media ‘teaching’ has an academic term thanks to Princeton Professor Harry Frankfurt’s best-selling book on this topic:

American Intelligence Officers Who Battled the Soviet Union for Decades Warn Germany Not to Fall for Anti-Russian Propaganda

Senior U. S. Intelligence Officers: Beware Flimsy ‘Intelligence’ MEMORANDUM FOR: Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany
FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)
SUBJECT: Ukraine and NATO
We the undersigned are long-time veterans of U. S. intelligence. We take the unusual step of writing this open letter to you to ensure that you have an opportunity to be briefed on our views prior to the NATO summit on Sept. 4-5.
You need to know, for example, that accusations of a major Russian ‘invasion’ of Ukraine appear not to be supported by reliable intelligence. Rather, the ‘intelligence’ seems to be of the same dubious, politically ‘fixed’ kind used 12 years ago to ‘justify’ the U. S.-led attack on Iraq.
We saw no credible evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq then; we see no credible evidence of a Russian invasion now. Twelve years ago, former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, mindful of the flimsiness of the evidence on Iraqi WMD, refused to join in the attack on Iraq. In our view, you should be appropriately suspicious of charges made by the U. S. State Department and NATO officials alleging a Russian invasion of Ukraine.
President Barack Obama tried on Aug. 29 to cool the rhetoric of his own senior diplomats and the corporate media, when he publicly described recent activity in the Ukraine, as ‘a continuation of what’s been taking place for months now … it’s not really a shift.’
Obama, however, has only tenuous control over the policymakers in his administration – who, sadly, lack much sense of history, know little of war, and substitute anti-Russian invective for a policy. One year ago, hawkish State Department officials and their friends in the media very nearly got Mr. Obama to launch a major attack on Syria based, once again, on ‘intelligence’ that was dubious, at best.
Largely because of the growing prominence of, and apparent reliance on, intelligence we believe to be spurious, we think the possibility of hostilities escalating beyond the borders of Ukraine has increased significantly over the past several days. More important, we believe that this likelihood can be avoided, depending on the degree of judicious skepticism you and other European leaders bring to the NATO summit next week.

French President Says “There Is Risk Of War” As Europe Plans Additional Russia Sanctions

For months Europe had thought that mere verbal (and hollow) threats, populist posturing and propaganda would be enough to force Russia’s Putin to back off and withdraw from the endless Ukraine escalation, into a Kremlin cocoon with his tail between his legs. What they didn’t anticipate was that Putin would in no way back down (as that would be seen as defeat and weakness by his numerous internal foes), nor would have have to: with Russia providing a third of European gas and with winter approaching, Russia had all the trumps cards from day one. Furthermore, as a result of escalating trade wars it is not Russia’s economy that is hurting but Europe, which is on the verge of a historic triple-dip recession, only unlike 2010 and 2012, this time it is Europe’s growth dynamo, Germany, itself which is leading the lemmings into the abyss.
Now, finally, Europe has realized that its “strategy” (if it ever had one, red: Obama’s ‘strategy’ on dealing with ISIS) was flawed. It is with this mindset that European Union leaders met in Brussels earlier today and while, as usual, the the threat of new and improved sanctions to Russia was present, suddenly Europe’s leaders seem far more “fearful of a new Cold War and self-inflicted harm to their own economies” and instead decided to give Moscow another chance to make peace according to Reuters.
Confirming Europe’s realization just how serious events are, and how far down the rabbit hole Europe’s bureaucrats have gone, French President Francois Hollande, while stressing that a failure by Russia to reverse a flow of weapons and troops into eastern Ukraine would force the bloc to impose new economic measures i.e., nothing new, it is what he said just after that indicated a dramatic change in rhetoric: “Are we going to let the situation worsen, until it leads to war?” Hollande said at a news conference.“Because that’s the risk today. There is no time to waste.”

Cyber False Flag ALERT

I’ve always wondered what the banking cabal had up their sleeves for the “End Game” and Clif High has just posted something that seems very plausible…
USA is #1!
World’s first cFF (cyber false flag) invented here! And coming to a bank/gov’t near you in September!
Linguistics show that USA politbureau is linking [banks] and [national security] very heavily. They will be shutting down banks in response to a [cyber false flag] and they will then use this as [excuse for war]. We all really know that this is to try and save some zionist bankster butts from a very early, and violent death later as the revolution heats up for a cold winter.
Their ‘target’ in this first ever cyber false flag is Russia.
END

Of course the scenarios are multiple but with the latest news from out Press-titutes about Russian hackers targeting JP Morgan I wonder I’m thinking Clif is going to get this one 100% correct.
JP Morgan Chase among US Companies “targeted by hackers”
If the banks shut down in September and they blame cyber attacks and start those war drums we must all stand up and SCREAM STOP!!!!!
IT’S ANOTHER FALSE FLAG!!!
Stay aware.
May the Road you choose be the Right Road.

CNN asks serial lying liar to comment on the CDC whistleblower scandal!

You want a perfect example of how mainstream media covers up the truth and endangers lives? Here it is.
Yesterday, CNN published an article about CDC whistleblower William Thompson.
(CNN: ‘Journal questions validity of autism and vaccine study’ – the CNN reporter for this story is Debra Goldschmidt (twitter: @debgcnn). Jacque Wilson and Miriam Falco also contributed to this story. The story is augmented with a video featuring CNN senior medical correspondent Elizabeth Cohen (twitter: @elizcohencnn). The Spanish language version of the story is here.)
The day before yesterday, Thompson confessed that he and other CDC coauthors fabricated a 2004 CDC study, in order to hide an MMR-vaccine connection to autism.
Those other co-authors included Dr. Frank DeStefano. DeStefano was the lead author of the 2004 study.
So naturally… CNN goes to DeStefano for a quote defending the safety of vaccines, and De Stefano, the accused liar, tells another lie without blushing, without missing a beat.
He says:
‘We know the brain and cellular features for children begin when the child is still in the womb. The brain is already developing the wiring that will manifest in autism.’
In other words, according to DeStefano, vaccines couldn’t cause autism, because it’s already forming before the child has ever had a vaccine.
If that were true, why bother to do thousands of studies that allege there is no vaccine-autism connection?

Are James Foley’s Sister and Adam Lanza’s Friend The Same Person?

In August of 2014 we were shown a video of James Foley being beheaded by supposed terrorist group ISIS. As it turns out the video is 100% fake, the MSM knows it and to date has yet to publicize that fact.
James Foley Analysis of the video proves it to be fake. There is no blood. The after shot shows a clean cut by a knife that didn’t break the skin after at least 6 slices.
There is NOTHING gory about this video.

This is what it looks like when someone gets a real cut in their throat.
A hockey player gets his throat sliced. This video WILL make you cringe!

It’s also quite clear that something else is up in the interview of his siblings who are acting quite oddly for someone who saw their brother beheaded the day before. They are in a studio that was cheaply set up and it starts to fall apart during the interview.

Then there is this odd anomaly. His sister looks and sounds exactly like Adam Lanza’s classmate from Sandy Hook. A little makeup on the sides of her nose and poof a new person.

Washington Piles Lie Upon Lie – Paul Craig Roberts

The latest Washington lie, this one coming from NATO, is that Russia has invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops and self-propelled artillery.
How do we know that this is a lie? Is it because we have heard nothing but lies about Russia from NATO, from US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, from assistant secretary of state Victoria Nuland, from Obama and his entire regime of pathological liars, and from the British, German, and French governments along with the BBC and the entirety of the Western media?
This, of course, is a good reason for knowing that the latest Western propaganda is a lie. Those who are pathological liars don’t suddenly start telling the truth.
But there are even better reasons for understanding that Russia has not invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops.
One reason is that Putin has invested heavily in diplomacy backed by unprovocative behavior. He would not risk his bet on diplomacy by sending in troops too few in number to have a decisive effect on the outcome.
Another reason is that if Putin decides he has no alternative to sending the Russian military to protect the Russian residents in eastern and southern Ukraine, Putin will send in enough troops to do the job quickly as he did in Georgia when the American and Israeli trained Georgian army invaded South Ossetia and was destroyed in a few hours by the Russian response. If you hear that 100,000 Russian troops accompanied by air cover have invaded Ukraine, it would be a more believable claim.

U.S./Ukraine Pushing Russian Invasion Propaganda – Episode 453

The following video was published by X22Report on Aug 28, 2014
The recovery illusion in the US is continuing. Q2 GDP has been revised hire to 4.2%. Pending home sales decreased YoY. The housing bubble mimics the housing bubble of 2008. US and Ukraine are losing the war against the people of Ukraine. Ukraine and the US are using the Russian invasion propaganda once again. Ukraine had purchased the same T-72 tanks from Hungary on Aug 2 that are now being reported in the Ukraine. President Obama wants to strike into Syria but needs a major event. The central bankers are prepared to carry out a false flag event on the people of the US

Summarizing The West’s Russia-Ukraine Propaganda

With regard to the goings-on in Ukraine, I have heard quite a few European and American voices piping in, saying that, yes, Washington and Kiev are fabricating an entirely fictional version of events for propaganda purposes, but then so are the Russians. They appear to assume that if their corporate media is infested with mendacious, incompetent buffoons who are only too happy to repeat the party line, then the Russians must be same or worse.
The reality is quite different. While there is a virtual news blackout with regard to Ukraine in the West, with little being shown beyond pictures of talking heads in Washington and Kiev, the media coverage in Russia is relentless, with daily bulletins describing troop movements, up-to-date maps of the conflict zones, and lots of eye-witness testimony, commentary and analysis. There is also a lively rumor mill on Russian and international social networks, which I tend to disregard because it’s mostly just that: rumor. In this environment, those who would attempt to fabricate a fictional narrative, as the officials in Washington and Kiev attempt to do, do not survive very long.
There is a great deal to say on the subject, but here I want to limit myself to rectifying some really, really basic misconceptions that Washington has attempted to impose on you via its various corporate media mouthpieces.

Ukraine Accuses Russia Of Launching Invasion, Then Promptly Retracts

It has been a busy morning: following a substantial surge in Ukraine separatist activity in the past 24 hours, which saw them capture the strategic Sea of Azov port town of Novoazovsk, a move which the NYT classified as “Ukraine Reports Russian Invasion on a New Front“, Ukraine has turned on the disinformation spigot to max resulting in a constant verbal, and headline, diarrhea as follows:
POROSHENKO CONVENES SECURITY COUNCIL ON RUSSIAN `INVASION’ POROSHENKO: SITUATION IN UKRAINE’S EAST DETERIORATED SHARPLY UKRAINE EU AMBASSADOR CALLS FOR JOINT EFFORT TO `STOP THIS WAR’ POROSHENKO SAYS SECURITY COUNCIL WILL DRAW UP FURTHER PLANS RUSSIAN ARMY CONTROLS NOVOAZOVSK: UKRAINE SECURITY COUNCIL YATSENYUK URGES UN SECURITY COUNCIL TO DEBATE UKRAINE SITUATION So sure was Ukraine that this time (unlike all those previous disinformation launches) Russia has invaded that Anton Herashchenko, adviser to Ukrainian Interior Ministry, actually commented on his Facebook page saying “Invasion of regular Russian army of Putin to Ukraine is an accomplished fact,’ Adding that Putin “de-facto places Ukraine on a war-footing at a time when a decree was signed to dissolve parliament.”
Well, yes, Ukraine has no government, but Russia of course denied all of it:

‘ISIS Here’ Plot Now in CNN’s Ferguson Production

The high-end of intellectual distortion is supplied by globalist ‘think tanks’, but the low-end of public brainwashing comes from the mainstream media – in this case CNN.
As Washington continues to run out of script ideas for its ‘War on Terror’ narrative, the cable news network’s coverage of Ferguson now includes a protester (crisis actor?) wielding a sign that reads ‘ISIS Here’ in the background of reporter Jake Tapper as he moves down the street. Is this a random caught on camera, or, a set piece strategically placed there?
If the existential threat is fading, then it must be time to build-up an internal one…

Ukraine Accuses Russia Of Imminent Gas Cut-Off, Russia Denies, Germans Anxious

So much for the Russia-Ukraine talks bringing the two sides together as even Germany’s Steinmeier could only say it’s “hard to say if breakthrough made.” Shortly after talks ended, Ukrainian Premier Yatsenyuk stated unequivocally that “we know about the plans of Russia to cut off transit even in European Union member countries,” followed by some notably heavy-on-the-war-rhetoric comments. The Russians were quick to respond, as the energy ministry was “surprised” by his statements on Ukraine gas transits and blasted that comments were an “attempt at EU disinformation.”

Outright Military Victory by Rebels? Ukraine Offensive in Donetsk and Lugansk Fails

Outright Military Victory by Rebels? Militarily, if the rebel site maps and discussion are correct, the war may conclude with outright military victory by the rebels. Whether or not you believe these maps or such talk, please note the mainstream media silence on the civil war in the last two weeks. At best, one can safely assume Kiev has nothing good to report. Ukraine Offensive in Donetsk and Lugansk FailsRebel sites now proclaim Ukraine offensive in Donetsk and Lugansk have failed. Let’s take a look at a translated map of major military operations August 10-25, 2014. The map source is Colonel Casad. Translation by Kot Ivanov and Anthony Hartin on SLAVYANGRAD.org.

Forget Geopolitical De-Escalation – Here’s The Real Reason Why Oil Is Tumbling

As with every other asset-class in the world now, fundamentals have taken a very distant back-seat to both liquidity (flow) and positioning (technicals) as traders are increasingly (in one way or another) on the same side of the same trade. Mainstream media will proclaim US energy “independence”, US sanctions ‘winning’ over Putin, or US airstrikes ‘calming’ down Middle East uncertainty; but the real reason oil is plunging is… the biggest mass liquidation of speculative longs in recorded 30 year history over the last few weeks…

10 George Orwell Quotes that Predicted Life in 2014 America

The Anti-Media / 25th August 2014
George Orwell ranks among the most profound social critics of the modern era. Some of his quotations, more than a half a century old, show the depth of understanding an enlightened mind can have about the future.
1) ‘In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.’
Though many in the modern age have the will to bury their head in the sand when it comes to political matters, nobody can only concern themselves with the proverbial pebble in their shoe. If one is successful in avoiding politics, at some point the effects of the political decisions they abstained from participating in will reach their front door. More often than not, by that time the person has already lostwhatever whisper of a voice the government has allowed them.
2) ‘All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.’
Examining the nightly news in the run up to almost any military intervention will find scores of talking heads crying for blood to flow in the streets of some city the name of which they just learned to pronounce. Once the bullets start flying, those that clamored for war will still be safely on set bringing you up-to-the-minute coverage of the carnage while their stock in Raytheon climbs.

The Kardashians And Climate Change: Interview With Judith Curry

Climate change continues to drive energy policy, despite the fact that there is no way to reconcile eradicating energy poverty in much of the world with reducing carbon dioxide emissions. This is one of the many conundrums of the climate change debate – a debate that has been taken over by social media and propaganda, while scientists struggle to get back into the game and engage the public.
Judith Curry is an American climatologist and former chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, as well as the co-author of over 140 scientific papers. Her prolific writings offer a rational view of the climate change debate. You can find more of Judith’s work at her blog: JudithCurry.com
In an exclusive interview with Oilprice.com, Curry discusses:
‘ The Koch-funded climate denial machine ‘ Why the public is losing trust in scientists ‘ How alarmist propaganda has skewed the climate debate ‘ How climate change has contributed to a new literary genre ‘ The impact of social media and the ‘Kardashian Factor’ ‘ Climate and the ‘clash of values’ ‘ Global warming or global cooling? ‘ The Polar Vortex and ‘global warming’ ‘ Extreme weather hysteria ‘ Why climate change should not drive energy policy
Oilprice.com: You’ve talked a lot about the role of communication and public relations in the climate change debate. Where do scientists fail in this respect?

Ebola Among Health Workers: More Than 240 Sick, More Than 120 Dead

If hundreds of doctors and nurses are becoming infected with Ebola, what chance is the general public going to have? This is not just a question that many of us are asking. As you will see below, this is a questionthat the World Health Organization is asking. When dozens of health workers started getting Ebola, nobody could explain how it was happening. More precautions were taken and health workers were even more careful than before. Then the number of sick health workers rose to 170. Even more measures were taken to keep doctors and nurses from getting the disease, but now just a couple of weeks later we have learned that a total of 240 health workers have contracted the virus and more than 120 of them have died. Overall, more than 2,600 people have been infected with Ebola since this outbreak began and more than 1,400 people have died. This virus continues to spread at an exponential rate, and now we have learned that there are confirmed cases of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo. When are people in the western world going to wake up and start taking this disease seriously?
The mainstream media has told us over and over again that Ebola “does not spread easily” and that we have nothing to be concerned about in the United States and Europe.
But if that is true, then how in the world have hundreds of doctors and nurses gotten sick? They go to extraordinary lengths to avoid getting the virus. The following is from an official World Health Organization statement that was released on Monday…

The ‘Sunni Turn’ Against The ‘Shiite Crescent’: How The Strategic Stupidity Of Washington And Its Allies Created ISIS

The Islamic State in Syria (ISIS) is being touted as the newest ‘threat’ to the American homeland: hysterics have pointed to Chicago as the locus of their interest, and we are told by everyone from the President on down that if we don’t attack them – i.e. go back into Iraq (and even venture into Syria) to root them out – they’ll soon show up on American shores.
How is this supposed to work? Well, you see, that monster who beheaded James Foley had a British accent, and there are reports of more than a few Brits (and Americans) traveling to Syria to fight on behalf of ISIS. So these jihadi ‘internationalists’ could always just fly back to either Britain or the US, where another 9/11 would shortly be in the works.
Let’s put aside the FBI statement that, while Americans abroad may be in some unspecified degree of danger, ISIS represents ‘no credible threat’ to the continental United States. If we take the ISIS-threatens-us-at-home war propaganda seriously we have to believe Western law enforcement agencies, with all the tools at their command – including near total surveillance of online and telephonic communications worldwide – have no idea what dubious characters have traveled to Syria via, say, New York or London, and would in any case be powerless to prevent their return.
In short, we have to invade yet another country (or two) because our own post-9/11 security arrangements are virtually nonexistent – in spite of having spent untold billions on building them up.
Can that really be true?
