Russian Invasion-Screaming Wolf: Strategy of Deception. Lies Repeated Umpteen Times. What is the Endgame? By Peter Koenig

30 August 2014 — Global Research

“The separatists are backed, trained, armed, financed by Russia. Russia determined that it had to be a little more overt in what it had already been doing, but it’s not really a shift.” – Obama, 29 August 2014.

”If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.” – Joseph Goebbels (Hitler’s Propaganda Minister)

Interestingly, most of us who are seeking the truth are primarily attempting to undo the lies – lies umpteen times repeated, lies about “Russian invasions”, first proclaimed by Poroshenko, Ukraine’’s oligarch leader (sic), lies of Russia “not respecting Ukraine’s sovereignty”, demonization directed against President Putin, Malaysian airliners downed by Russia – and-so-on.

Washington’s “Pivot” hits a Brick Wall

“We are currently witnessing an epic and historic event. The Ukrainian regular army and the punitive battalions are suffering a catastrophic defeat to the south of Donetsk…..It still is not quite clear how the Junta intends to avoid a complete defeat here…. By squandering the most combat-capable brigades in systematic offensive operations, the Junta sustained enormous losses and at the same time suffered a crushing, purely military defeat. The southern front has collapsed.” – The Southern Front Catastrophe – August 27, 2014″, Colonel Cassad, Military Briefing, Novorossiya, Ukraine

“The reports out of Novorussia (New Russia) are nothing short of incredible… sources are reporting that Novorussian forces have bypassed Mariupol from the north and have entered the Zaporozhie region!” – News from the Front, Vineyard of the Saker

To Zombie Civil Rights Organizations: Don’t Like Being Called Sellouts? Then Don’t Sell Out

by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

An August 11 letter published by Rev. Jesse L. Jackson in the newsletter of MMTC, a notorious mouthpiece of corporate telecoms protests that this and other publications, and a growing number of activists have called our traditional civil rights organizations “shills” and “sellouts” for consistently backing the interests of their corporate funders over those of the public they supposedly represent.

Ferguson Versus the Counter-Insurgency State 

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

If the people of Ferguson, Missouri, had remained “calm” in the police killing of Michael Brown, the nation would not be discussing the “militarization” of the police forces. “All the nation’s police departments are following the same drill, with the same tools and weapons, under the same mandate: keep the Blacks in check.” Black folks need to liberate some territory.
