    We always hear the USSR's war in Afghanistan as the Western media's 'go-to' example of a military 'quagmire'....well let's look at 4 famous military quagmire's: USSR in Afghanistan, US/NATO in Afghanistan, US/NATO in Iraq, US in Vietnam and determine which were the real quagmires...Wink

    You guys are really ovesensitive. You elevate US support for Islamists out of political necessity to the rank of arch-crime but completely miss all wars that would start with no global hegemony in place. We are living in most peaceful times in history. Really.

    It is irrelevant what Orwell was specifically writing about, the machinations of a socialist/totalitarian state that he called "Eurasia" which was a euphemism for Soviet Union. What is important are the mechanisms of state control that he described. "Newspeak" is seen everyday in the evil abortion that is "Political correctness". "Doublethink" is the mental contortions that people have to engage in in order to say what they mean without having the hammer of "political correctness" coming down on them. "Doublethink" is perhaps more evil than "political correctness" because in order to engage in "doublethink" you have to partially think like the state wants you to think in order to see what it is that you must not say clearly. It is a form of self brainwashing as the longer you need to indulge in "doublethink", then the greater the chance that you may start to believe the lies. While Orwell did not invent the concept of "Groupthink", it is clear that it is born out of "doublethink" and became a bizarre means of self and group enforcement of thought and word.

    In other areas we have surpassed Orwell. All our electronic means of communication are watched by the state, no matter what country we live in. We are watched physically by CCTV, either ourselves directly or our vehicles. Our use of bank/credit cards, what we buy, can be monitored.  In "1984" the excuse used by the state to have these controls was "perpetual war", an ever present enemy, an entity for the population to fear and hate. Before 1991 the West had Soviet Union, but then, for a time,  a new enemy was needed, enter the Arabs as "bogeyman", and "nationalism", and enter Yugoslavia. "Racists" make a convenient "enemy of the people", yet bizarrely those who go red in the face screaming about "racists" are the same people who hate those who do not fit their view of how we should all be, and they even deny the fact that there are different races. This contradiction is never explained, only screamed at. I have a lot of experience in this Orwellian aspect due to my interest in Egypt, and have confronted the ignorant and very malicious ultra politcally correct American "Afro-centrists" many times. Orwellianism involves the creation of enemies, the creation of crimes and levels of crimes, an example that predates Orwell is that of  quarter, half, or horror, full Trotskyists, in 30s. It involves making ordinary people think they are criminals even if they are not. It involves making those who do not believe all that the state and it's propaganda machine say, feel as if they are the only people who think that way, that they are "outsiders". Media, particulary TV is very good at doing that. It involves making it seem that those who question the state are mentally ill, again an example from the past is that those who were seen as "outgroup" suddenly found themselves in state pyschiatric "hospitals" and diagnosed with "Slow developing schizophrenia", the symptoms being - stubbornness - inflexibility of political convictions - reformist delusions. I see signs of this returning, not in Russia, but in the West and under the curious concept of "cognitive distortions".

    We have moved beyond 1984 in ways that Orwell did not envisage, but would fully understand if he were alive now. I also note that those who deny that the world becomes more and more Orwellian, and even deny the existance of "political correctness", are those who are the practitioners of this sinister system or who are control freaks.

    Edit: And I never even mentioned "thought crime" and the modern nonsense of "hate crime", which is itself a form of "thought crime".

    It does not take much to brainwash the masses. Take your "afro-centrist" example on Egypt. Many people now think that the ancient Egyptians were black.
    This is because they were fed some images in the popular entertainment realm that promoted this view. One example is SG-1 where they have some negro
    pharaoh image in the entry credits. Cleopatra was a fricking Greek and not some African (http://blog.oup.com/2010/12/cleopatra-2/). There were black Egyptians,
    the Nubians and they even ruled upper and lower Egypt for a while (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nubia). But who needs actual history when some Hollywood BS
    will convince millions overnight. Most people are idiots and are begging to be used and abused. This is the root most of humanity's problems.

    Sputnik News to be blocked by Latvian authorities it seems:

    "Sputnik Latvia received an official notification of the closure of the resource in the domain zone.lv. According to an official letter from the registrar of the domain, referring to the request the Latvian Foreign Ministry, "the domain name registration sputniknews.lv a breach of the EU Council Regulation concerning restrictive measures against the threat of territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine." The letter states that the violation of the said decision may be grounds for criminal prosecution."

    Look at the Apps/addons and tools that are abused and use double standards.

    WOT an addon for browsers which indicate the safety of websites prior to going on them, based on their content by "users".

    So when they are safe the ring is green, when they are not it is red, when it is suspicious it is yellow with further information to which reasons when you click on it.

    Here for Russia insider it is yellow and security safety is "not secure enough" why that is i will come to it in a second.

    Western propaganda - Page 20 RI_WOT_is_a_joke

    BBC WOT rating is green reason for that is politics and religious content.

    Western propaganda - Page 20 Yhvcy8fv

    So let us see what the comments and "users" experience and rating is based on.

    Here a screen shot from WOT's security check of Russia Insider and we have one user there Amnesty Int.


    Western propaganda - Page 20 8djiaaqu

    Which says "Just another pro-krelm propaganda project"

    If that is Amnesty Intl. or not can't be checked but all comments are retarded and are all "Kremln financed" aswell that this is all in perfect russian suggests that it is an ukrofascist or one of the 5th columnists who post that garbage.

    Let us see what WOT users say about BBC, the well known MI5 infiltrated news network that has been caught red handed several times in reporting and orchastrating fake interviews, war reports with actors, terrorist actors and just lying about lot of stuff and well known for 99% onesided agenda.

    Western propaganda - Page 20 Lm6qpic4

    The ratings are all buried of people critizing it as being one sided and not trustworthy under the mass of "100% perfect trustworthy news" "users" among them ukrofascist Amnesty Intl. nicknamed user.

    Ukrainain users post there and a shit load of probably paid people just like paid people to call Russia Insider a krelmn propaganda while it is a western source.

    This are the average methods of western propaganda just like on wikishmedia where hasbara and other shills are paid big money to buy admin rights to edit stuff like they see fit for their propaganda.

    Only retards need some app to tell them what is "safe" to read. People with functional intelligence can make their
    own decisions. Unfortunately, most people on this planet do not have a sufficiently high level of intelligence to think
    for themselves and need Big Brother (in all of his many forms) to think for them.

    Amnesty international has been criticized by nearly everyone, including US, for one sided reporting. So chances it is a Ukrainian branch doing the trolling. Won't help them of course.

    The Guardian ran a lead story on Putin’s “corruption.” From what I have seen it is another “maybe,” “probably,” “possibly,” and “could be” piece of hit job journalism. Also, Luke Harding – the laughing stock of Russia watching - writes it. Money and power always co-mingle – in Russia it is not different from anywhere else in the world.


    Here is the precise scheme

    The previous widely repeated claim was that Putin had $40 billion. Now they are yapping about $2 billion without any actual evidence.
    What happened to the $38 billion difference?

    This is a pathetic NATzO attempt to stir up the same crap as in Brazil. Except Brazil has serious corruption problems for real while
    the accusations against Putin are pure fiction. If Putin was corrupt, he would have whored Russia out to NATzO and Uncle Scam
    for a fee. It is the fact that he is willing to live like an ascetic that removes him from NATzO control and drives the lunatic elites
    running the west mad with rage.

    the UK newspapers are running with pictures of Putin in their front pages yet his name is not even on the list of the people involved in the scheme .... fucking disgraceful (pardon my French) yet David Cameron's late father was one of the people on the list ... shocking stuff

    «Cherry picking» leaked documents: a CIA art form

    The US Central Intelligence Agency, rather than attempt to deter massive leaks of sensitive documents, including classified US government materials, has figured out it is much more advantageous to «cherry pick» certain information and then release it as «major news» to a corporate media eager and willing to run with what they are handed. Such has been the case with the so-called «Panama Papers».

    A so-called non-profit entity, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), cherry-picking information from a purported leak of 11.5 million documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. In turn, the findings of this consortium were provided to a network of over 100 media partners, including some of the largest newspapers in the world. What was not reported by the newspapers, all too eager to stenographically report what they were provided by the consortium, is that ICIJ is financially supported by George Soros's Open Society Foundations and the Central Intelligence Agency-directed US Agency for International Development (USAID).

    The corporate media played up the connections of various off-shore tax-dodging contrivances and money laundering vehicles to a collection of world leaders. However, instead of focusing on leaders who have direct connections to money laundering and tax evasion, for example, Argentina’s neoconservative fascism-friendly president Mauricio Macri, the ICIJ, as is their usual method, hyped fuzzy «guilt by association» links to specific leaders. Not surprisingly, the chief targets for ICIJ were the CIA's number one and number two foes, respectively – Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

    As Russian president spokesman Dmitry Peskov correctly maintained, the chief target of the «Putinophobic» ICIJ, Soros, and USAID was Vladimir Putin and not an old acquaintance of the Russian president named in the ICIJ’s cherry-picked document revelations. Peskov also rightly stated that ICIJ has links to the US government.

    And, of course, the ICIJ, Soros, and USAID could not help themselves from linking, again indirectly, Mossack Fonseca to the impeachment charges against Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff and the investigation of her predecessor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. Also hyped by ICIJ and their co-conspirators, Soros and USAID, are fuzzy indirect links to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in the Panama Papers. There was also a failed attempt by the cherry pickers to implicate former Argentine presidents Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and her late husband Nestor Kirchner. A mere mention of individuals’ names in an interrogatory letter do not constitute prima facie evidence of wrongdoing. That is, of course, unless one is engaged in CIA cherry picking for psychological warfare and information operations purposes.

    The ICIJ runs an entity called the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP). The OCCRP, in turn, is operated under the aegis of the Journalism Development Network (JDN) based in Washington, DC and which maintains a European affiliate in Bucharest. Not surprisingly, the OCCRP and JDN employ propagandists, not journalists, with experience at the US government-funded and Soros-directed Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty / Radio Free Asia. The OCCRP and JDN have focused their efforts on undermining leaders who do not follow the dictates of Washington. The role of these two organizations in the dubious Magnitsky case, a lame attempt to discredit the Russian government, is a case in point. The US was able to use some of the «yellow journalism» produced by OCCRP and JDN to implement sanctions against Russian individuals and institutions. OCCRP and JDN partner with Soros-linked «independent» journalism entities throughout the Balkans, including Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Romania, as well as Latvia, Armenia, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, and Moldova, all countries heavy with the unmistakable stench of Soros’s subterfuge and political troublemaking.

    The ICIJ, OCCRP, and JDN troika are now using their corporate media connections to tarnish the leaders of all the BRICS nations: Putin, Xi, Rousseff, South African President Jacob Zuma, and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

    And although much is being made of the resignation of Iceland’s Prime Minister Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson over ICIJ revelations that his wife maintained an offshore shell company handled by Mossack Fonseca, it was under Gunnlaugsson’s watch that Iceland imprisoned its bankers who ran the nation into bankruptcy. And those jailed bankers were doing the bidding of, among others, George Soros and his ultimate masters: the Rothschild banking family.

    In 2005, the chief of the Swiss private bank Julius Baer’s Cayman Islands branch leaked a compact disk containing clients’ transactions, including every deposit made, from Baer's Cayman unit that dealt with anonymous trusts. In January 2008, WikiLeaks began publishing details of Baer's clients – who were accused of tax evasion and money laundering. The clients resided in the United States, Hong Kong, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, Spain, and Peru. On December 4, 2008, Alex Widmer, 52, the CEO of Julius Baer and a widower with three children, was found dead from a dubiously-reported suicide. Widmer had discovered links between the bank's leaks of client information to the media and WikiLeaks, Mossad, and the Soros network. Only the New York Times reported that Widmer's death was from a suicide and an autopsy report was never released. The ICIJ was nowhere to be found on the Julius Baer story and how Julius Baer, after the leak of the client information, saw its share values drop by 60 percent, thus making it vulnerable to a hostile takeover by Soros and Goldman Sachs.

    In 2008, the same global media that finds the Mossack Fonseca documents so newsworthy barely raised an eyebrow when documents leaked from the Luxembourg bank Clearstream were made public. After French intelligence managed to alter the original Clearstream documents, the entire matter was shelved. The reason was that Clearstream was a pass-through entity for paying bribes to a number of world leaders by the CIA and Mossad. At the time of the Clearstream revelations, these leaders were friendly to the George W. Bush administration and Israel. One of the alleged bribe recipients was French President Nicolas Sarkozy who reportedly used the pseudonyms «Paul de Nagy» and «Stéphane Bosca» to hide his identity with Clearstream financial transactions. Sarkozy was suspected of illegally receiving kickbacks involving the sale of six French frigates to Taiwan in 1991. Banks and companies with Clearstream accounts included the defunct CIA-linked Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), Bank Menatep run by Russian criminal oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Banco Ambrosiano (also known as the Vatican Bank), Bahrain International Bank (with reported links to Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda), and Bush family-connected Carlyle Group.

    The global corporate media failed to do its job on the Clearstream matter because it stood to embarrass not America’s opponents, but the American president’s father. Clearstream banker Ernest Backes revealed that he was in charge of the transfer of $7 million from Citibank and Chase Manhattan to pay Iran for the release of the US diplomatic hostages in Tehran. The transfer occurred on January 16, 1981, four days before Ronald Reagan's swearing in as president. The deal was worked out by Reagan’s vice presidential running mate and future president George H. W. Bush as part of an effort to undermine the re-election of President Jimmy Carter. Backes gave the incriminating documents to the French National Assembly, which did nothing with it.

    In the world of massive «leaks» to the media, it is the CIA psychological operations agents and their water carriers like Soros and certain phony journalists and editors who decide what can and cannot be published. It was that way with Clearstream, the State Department cables, Julius Baer, Snowden’s NSA documents, and now with the tranche from Mossack Fonseca.
