Fox News: John Roberts Breaks The Silence About Vaccine Injuries, by Emerald Robinson

Aside from governments, the media engaged in the highest level of criminal disinformation concerning COVID. From Emerald Robinson at emeralddb3.substack.com:

How many people trusted the vaccine misinformation spread by Fox News? One tweet shows you the number: too many.

Two months ago, I helped to publicize the story (375,000 page views and counting!) that Fox News took money from the Biden regime to push COVID vaccine propaganda on their network relentlessly. Fox News (like almost all the other corporate media outlets) did not reveal this crucial fact to its audience — an astonishing breach of journalistic ethics that should never be forgiven or forgotten.

I wrote at the time that Fox News was also coercing its own employees into getting vaccinated even though the vast majority were working from home:

Meanwhile, Fox News executive are continuing to enforce vaccine mandates with their own employees — even though the mandates have been halted by the courts. Fox is even offering $500 to any employee, right now, who proves they got the jab.

We have just lived through the most extensive propaganda campaign in the history of the world, and it was paid for with taxpayer dollars. You paid for it. I paid for it. We will probably never know how much money was spent because, according to a source familiar with the FOIAs, the Biden Administration won’t release the amounts under their “trade secrets” exemption.

I’ve been telling people for the last two years that, when the truth comes out about the deadly COVID vaccines, it will topple the American corporate media.

Biden Administration’s Ministry of Truth Stumbles, by Philip Giraldi

It’s pretty easy to tell what the truth is just by listening to the government. The truth is the opposite of whatever it says. From Philip Giraldi at unz.com:

Finally some good news – maybe! The Department of Homeland Security’s recently launched Disinformation Governance Board has gone into what has been described as the “pause” mode and its controversial Director Nina Jankowicz has resigned, citing “vile personal attacks and physical threats.” Its status will reportedly be reviewed over the next 75 days and it will likely be rolled out more quietly next time around and under a different name.

The Board was developed to counter what was held to be unfair criticism of policies being promoted by the government. Ironically, however, it has recently become clear that the White House itself has been doing much of the lying. It uses the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and other government agencies to spread false information, referred to as disinformation, to dupe the public into believing that there is something good and noble about America becoming heavily involved in the war in Ukraine, with all that entails. And, of course, since the evildoers must be excoriated as that drama is playing out, good old Russia fits in admirably, particularly as the Democrats still like to pretend that it was Moscow’s interference that defeated Hillary in 2016.

As Monkeypox Cases Spread, Report Shows Gates Foundation, WHO, Pharma Execs Took Part in Monkeypox Pandemic ‘Simulation’, by Michael Nevradakis, Ph.D.

The usual suspects are behind the Monkeypox hoax. From Michael Nevradakis, Ph.D., at childrenshealthdefense.org:

The World Health Organization on Friday held an emergency meeting to discuss the outbreak of monkeypox after more than 100 cases were reported across 12 countries, as a report surfaced showing the Gates Foundation, WHO and Pharma execs in March 2021 conducted a monkeypox pandemic “simulation.

The World Health Organization (WHO) on Friday held an emergency meeting to discuss the outbreak of monkeypox after more than 100 cases were reported across 12 countries.

Days before the WHO convened, the Biden administration placed a $119 million order for monkeypox vaccines after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed six people in the U.S. were being monitored for the viral infection, and one person had tested positive.

Belgium on Sunday became the first country to introduce a compulsory 21-day quarantine for monkeypox patients after reporting four cases of the disease in the last week, Politico reported.

The 100 newly reported cases, or suspected cases, garnered attention because many of them do not appear to be linked to travel to Africa, where in some regions, monkeypox is endemic.

Cases were reported in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the U.K. No deaths are reported as of yet.

A major national embarrassment is being hidden from Ukrainians, by Nikolai Storozhenko

The major embarrassment is that Ukraine has lost the war. From Nikolai Storozhenko at thesaker.is:

There was no surrender by Azov National Battalion militants, Kiev assures us. There was only an “evacuation” (not clear to where), and this bit of demagoguery was happily picked up by both Ukrainian and world mass media. The effort to conceal the embarrassing truth about the situation on the frontlines is consistent with how Kiev explains the catastrophic state of the economy.

“If I had the Pravda newspaper, the world would have never learned of Waterloo!”, Napoleon Bonaparte said in a famous Soviet anecdote. Pravda is no more, but the anecdote’s punchline holds true, since narratives need not depend on events.

Today the role of the collective Pravda is played by the talking heads on Ukrainian TV (president Zelensky, press secretaries of SBU, Ministry of Defense, political scientists, it doesn’t matter who).

This time Waterloo is the Azov Steel Works with the Azov Regiment militants who have been trapped there (for the most part). Together with soldiers from several AFU brigades, border guards and, as has been persistently claimed by the media, an uncertain number of either mercenaries or instructors. Who was and was not there, we’ll find out soon enough.

They’re Worried About The Spread Of Information, Not Disinformation, by Caitlin Johnstone

If you can squelch the truth, the Ministry of Propaganda doesn’t have to hire as many people. From Caitlin Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com:

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 sides of this history-making issue at this crucial time.

And I can’t stop thinking, as this situation comes to a boil, about how absurd it is that the US empire is working to set a precedent which essentially outlaws information-sharing that the US doesn’t like at the same time western news media are full of hand-wringing headlines about the dangerous threat of “disinformation”.

‘Disinformation’ Label Serves to Marginalize Crucial Ukraine Facts, by Luca Goldmansour

When you silence people, you usually end up hurting yourself worse than you hurt the silenced. Simon and Garfunkle wrote a song about it once. From Luca Goldmansour at fair.org:

‘Disinformation’ Label Serves to Marginalize Crucial Ukraine Facts
NBC: 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

NBC (4/6/22) referred to making charges against Russia for which there is “no evidence” as having “blunted and defused the disinformation weaponry of the Kremlin.”

Disinformation has become a central tool in the United States and Russia’s expanding information war. US officials have openly admitted to “using information as a weapon even when the confidence and accuracy of the information wasn’t high,” with corporate media eager to assist Washington in its strategy to “pre-empt and disrupt the Kremlin’s tactics, complicate its military campaign” (NBC, 4/6/22).

In defense of the US narrative, corporate media have increasingly taken to branding realities inconvenient to US information goals as “disinformation” spread by Russia or its proxies.

The New York Times (1/25/22) reported that Russian disinformation doesn’t only take the form of patently false assertions, but also those which are “true but tangential to current events”—a convenient definition, in that it allows accurate facts to be dismissed as “disinformation.” But who determines what is “tangential” and what is relevant, and what are the guiding principles to make such a determination? In this assessment, Western audiences are too fickle to be trusted with making up their own mind.

The Washington Blob: Its Blind Arrogance May Lead to War with Russia, by Doug Bandow

The funny thing about the Washington Blob’s arrogance is: what do they have to be arrogant about? From Doug Bandow at antiwar.com:

The Washington foreign policy elite, aka the Blob, hates nothing more than dissent from the conventional wisdom that the US must always do more, ever more, in the world. Those who disagree are treated as fools or traitors.

Every Friday the Washington Post engages in its weekly act of journalistic masturbation, when one of its establishment journalists interviews its other establishment journalists. The conversations are always informed, usually interesting, and often drenched in condescension. Last Friday was no different.

The Posties took on congressional passage of the $40 billion aid bill for Ukraine, expressing shock and dismay that 11 Republican senators voted no. Can you imagine – putting the interests of Americans first!? Playing the perfect Tartuffe was Josh Rogin, brimming with pietistic outrage. He singled out Tennessee Sen. Bill Hagerty, announcing that the former ambassador “knows better.” Rogin huffed: “It seems pretty simple.” It is better to spend the money now than to have World War III if Russia wins, he explained.

Eh? That’s the best the Post can come up with? Rogin’s argument is simple, or more accurately, simplistic. Surely Rogin knows better. However, his attitude is typical of the Blob.

New York Times Repudiates Drive for ‘Decisive Military Victory’ in Ukraine, Calls for Peace Negotiations, by John Walsh

The surrender of the Ukrainians (and a few foreign officials) at Azovstal in Mariupol has taken the wind from the sails of the immense pro-Ukraine propaganda effort. It won’t stop the $40 billion aid package, but it’s now impossible to pretend that Russia is losing in Ukraine. Thus, the NY Times, house organ for the Deep State, is calling for negotiations. From John Walsh at antiwar.com:

Ukraine must negotiate based on a “realistic assessment” and “limits” to U.S./NATO commitment, says NYT

A week ago we noted that a May 11 New York Times news article, documented that all was not going well for the US in Ukraine and that a companion opinion piece hinted that a shift in direction might be in order.

Now on May 19, “THE EDITORIAL BOARD,” the full Magisterium of the Times, has moved from hints to a clarion call for a change in direction in an editorial uninformatively titled, “The War Is Getting Complicated, and America Isn’t Ready.” From atop the Opinion page the Editorial board has declared that “total victory” over Russia is not possible and that Ukraine will have to negotiate a peace in a way that reflects a “realistic assessment” and the “limits” of US commitment. The Times serves as one the main shapers of public opinion for the Elite and so its pronouncements are not to be overlooked lightly.

Ukrainians will have to adjust to US “limits” and make sacrifices for newfound US realism

Bush is Biden is Bush, by Matt Taibbi

Bush and Biden are almost identical ideological twins. From Matt Taibbi at taibbi.substack.com:

George W. Bush returns to the news with a tad too much honesty, lifting a veil on Washington’s dirtiest open secret: the Biden Democrats have become the Bush Republicans

George W. Bush returned to the news last week. The man who once said, “Our enemies… never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we,” coughed up a gem of accidental truth about Ukraine. In the midst of blasting Vladimir Putin for suppressing dissent, he said:

The result is an absence of checks and balances in Russia, and the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq. I mean, of Ukraine.

Iraq too. Anyway. (laughs)

Although Bush in recent years has been regularly tongue-bathed by blue-party acolytes for speaking against Trump, with Katie Hill once going so far as to admit to tears as she pondered “how much better we’d all feel if Bush were president today,” press priests from CNN to NBC to The Guardian last week tossed him back overboard over his Ukraine miss. Stephen Colbert even “waxed nostalgic,” remembering the time before his current apple-polishing period, when he was an actual satirist under Bush: “I made so much fun of him, and he gave me so many reasons to do that.”

Whither Slava Ukraini? By Declan Hayes

The Western propaganda effort for a Ukrainian power structure riddled with corruption and treachery is ludicrous. Fortunately, some truth about Ukraine is starting to surface. From Declan Hayes at strategic-fortune.org:

If you want Ukraine to have a future, you must rid her of her oligarchic parasites and their over paid clowns.

And so, now that the evacuation (yeah, right) of Mariupol’s Azovs has passed, let’s balance the costs against the benefits, salute the brave and criticize the other. The Siege of Mariupol was nothing like Stalingrad, where the tractor factory was pulverized by the German XIV Panzer Korps, aided by over 2,000 Luftflotte sorties, before changing hands time and again in floor by floor and room by room fighting. And nor was the Siege of Mariupol anything like Aleppo’s prison siege, where heroic Syrian soldiers, warders and prisoners held off waves of American led terrorists for over a year before their compatriots evacuated them to their own lines.

This is not to deny that some of the Azovs fought as bravely as their 6th Army heroes. No doubt, they did. But, as Mariupol’s steel works was designed to withstand a nuclear attack, it was the perfect place for them to hole up until the 7th Cavalry arrived, which they did in Aleppo but did not in Mariupol or Stalingrad, from where almost all of the surviving 91,000 German soldiers were finally evacuated on February 2, 1943.
