Washington Post Tells Americans To EAT BUGS As They Can No Longer Afford Traditional Seasonal Dinners, by Steve Watson

If bug eating catches on, kids will look forward to going to their rooms without supper. From Steve Watson at summit.news:

“Consumers can already find foods like salted ants on Amazon and cricket powder protein bars in grocery stores.”

The Washington Post advised Americans Sunday that instead of a traditional season dinner, which now is unaffordable for a quarter of families, they should instead look to eating bugs.

Yes really.

In an article headlined Salted ants. Ground crickets. Why you should try edible insects, the Post stated “Consumers can already find foods like salted ants on Amazon and cricket powder protein bars in Swiss grocery stores.”

Yummmmm, ants.

The piece quoted a six year old girl in Pennsylvania who was supposedly given a rousing ovation by onlookers for eating fried worms.

The piece states “It’s not that bad!” she exclaimed. “It kind of tastes like kettle corn!”

There’s the usual crap about crickets having more protein than beef and everyone in third world countries already eating them, so why are you any better… etc

“Watching others enjoy insects may also help break down barriers,” the piece states under a sub headline “Creating a new norm.”

It further states “before insects can become common fare, more diners must be convinced that six-legged critters are, in fact, food. Through tasting experiments, surveys and educational demos, researchers, entrepreneurs and educators are delving into consumers’ psychology and finding that resistance to insect-eating can be strong.”

In Stunning Shift, WaPo Admits Catastrophic-Conditions, Collapsing-Morale Of Ukraine Front-Line Forces, by Tyler Durden

The propaganda narrative about Ukraine is crumbling. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

With Russia’s war in Ukraine now in its fourth month, mainstream media consumers have been treated to seemingly endless headlines and analysis of Russia’s extensive military losses. At the same time Ukrainian forces have tended to be lionized and their battlefield prowess romanticized, with essentially zero public information so far being given which details up-to-date Ukrainian force casualties, set-backs, and equipment losses.

But for the first time The Washington Post is out with a surprisingly dire and negative assessment of how US-backed and equipped Ukrainian forces are actually fairing. Gone is the rosy idealizing lens through which each and every encounter with the Russians is typically portrayed. WaPo correspondent and author of the new report Sudarsan Raghavan underscores of the true situation that “Ukrainian leaders project an image of military invulnerability against Russia. But commanders offer a more realistic portrait of the war, where outgunned volunteers describe being abandoned by their military brass and facing certain death at the front.”

The Washington Post:  The Voice of the CIA, by Paul Craig Roberts

The Washington Post has been the CIA’s mouthpiece stretching back to at least the 1960s. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org:

The Washington Post has always been a CIA asset.  The CIA used the Washington Post to orchestrate the Watergate narrative used to drive President Nixon out of office.

The CIA wanted Nixon gone, because Nixon was threatening the military/security complex’s budget and power by making arms control  agreements with the Soviets and by opening to China.  The CIA was afraid to assassinate Nixon because of the suspicion it was under for assassinating President Kennedy and Senator Kennedy.  So the CIA used the Washington Post to assassinate Nixon politically.

The entire history of the Washington Post is one of fake news.  The latest fake news from the disinformation sheet claims that the Russian troop pullback is a “deliberate ruse to mislead the United States and other world powers” about Russia’s planned invasion of Ukraine. “Anonymous US intelligence sources” (the CIA) are cited as the source.  https://www.rt.com/russia/549818-washington-believes-moscow-plotting-invasion/

First of all, the Russian troops were part of an exercise, not an invasion plan.  But push this fact aside and ask yourself what is the point of Russia concealing its plans?  If Russia wants to invade Ukraine, no one on earth can do anything whatsoever about it.  So why hide it?  Indeed, with satellites overhead a force concentrated for invasion cannot be hidden.  The presstitute who wrote the story and the CIA that dictated it are thinking in WW II terms when modern surveillance capabilities did not exist.

How the Corporate Media Launched a Disinformation Campaign to Protect Fauci, by Leighton Woodhouse

They’re all part of the same hypocrisy: Fauci, the media, the government, and of course Pfizer and Moderna. From Leighton Woodhouse at outsidevoices.substack.com:

As public anger grew over gruesome and medically useless dog experiments funded by Fauci’s agencies and budgets, his media allies came to the rescue with a pack of lies.

NOTE FROM GLENN GREENWALD: Earlier this month, I reported that The Washington Post was preparing a hit piece on a group that it had long praised: the White Coat Waste Project, devoted to the singular mission of building an ideologically diverse coalition to oppose wasteful and morally reprehensible taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs and other animals. As I noted there, The Post — after years of heaping praise on this group as a rare Washington success story in uniting left and right around a common noble cause — was now working to create the exact opposite narrative: namely, that the group was driven by some sort of clandestine MAGA or pro-Trump agenda, which meant its work should be regarded as unreliable and that it is denouncing animal experimentations not out of a sincere devotion to the cause but only to undermine the sacred-to-liberals Dr. Anthony Fauci, whose agencies and budgets fund these experiments (that White Coat has been working against government experimentations on dogs for many years, long before Fauci became a political lightning rod, was no impediment to the Post‘s smear job, because, as is so often the case these days, its mission was political and not journalistic).

As predicted, The Post, on November 19, published their attack on White Coat. Its pro-Fauci mission could not have been more obvious, beginning with the headline: “Fauci swamped by angry calls over beagle experiments after campaign that included misleading image: Little known animal-rights group leverages hostility among conservatives toward U.S. covid chief.” The article also noted that I had weeks earlier revealed what they were up to, blaming our reporting here for fueling further criticisms of Dr. Fauci, as if doing that — exposing the bad acts of a powerful political official like Fauci — is something a journalist should avoid doing.

The Washington Post, “Fauci swamped by angry calls over beagle experiments after campaign that included misleading image: Little known animal-rights group leverages hostility among conservatives toward U.S. covid chief,” Nov. 19, 2021

That Post article, along with similar ones from corporate outlets that emerged, sought to depict White Coat and the conservative and independent media outlets covering this story as engaged in a “misinformation” campaign. But as noted in the below Outside Voices article we are publishing today by Leighton Woodhouse — who has been covering this story from the start — it is The Post and Fauci’s defenders who are disseminating blatant disinformation, with the barely concealed motive of protecting Fauci at all costs, even if it means burying this vital story about the ethically horrendous acts of the government in the name of science.

As is true with all of the Outside Voices freelance articles that we publish here, we edit and fact-check the articles to ensure factual accuracy, but our publication of it does not necessarily mean we agree with all or even any of the views expressed by the journalist, who is guaranteed editorial freedom here. Following Woodhouse’s article below, you can watch the video player to see the segment I did last night on Fox News with Tucker Carlson regarding this article and the corporate media’s dishonest attempts to protect Fauci, as illustrated by The Post‘s dishonest hit piece.

By Leighton Woodhouse

By now you’ve surely heard about Anthony Fauci and his laboratory beagles, but in case you haven’t, it goes like this: For forty years, Fauci, as the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), has funded gruesome experiments on animals. Beagles in particular are one of the favored species for these experiments, because of their docile and people-pleasing nature, which makes for less hassle for the humans who subject them to pain and suffering. In one of these NIAID-funded experiments, in Tunisia, sedated beagles’ heads were put into mesh bags with swarms of starved sand flies, who fed on the live dogs.

“Pandora Papers” Leak Claims To Expose Hidden Wealth Allegedly Belonging To Putin, Other Foreign Leaders, by Tyler Durden

As Zero Hedge points out, these “blockbuster” revelations never seem to expose hidden wealth of American figures. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

t’s been a while since we have seen a massive leak exposing international tax shelters that offer a window into the hidden wealth of the global elite. Buzzfeed brought us the Fincen files a year ago, and before that, the Panama Papers, in early 2016 – leaked documents from the Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca – which offered a wealth of information that implicated foreign leaders (it even cost the leader of Iceland his job) including – of course – Russian Vladimir Putin.

Amusingly, though, these major leaks never seem to expose wealth held by American political leaders. And, so today, we have yet another leak, following the same pattern as the Panama Papers – dropping out of nowhere on an otherwise quiet Sunday afternoon – to expose foreign leaders from the Middle East and Eastern Europe, meaning there’s – you guessed it – another Putin connection

The biggest revelation from what the Washington Post is calling “the Pandora Papers” is that South Dakota “now rivals notoriously opaque jurisdictions in Europe and the Caribbean” as a haven for those in need of financial secrecy.

“Tens of millions of dollars from outside the US are now sheltered by trust companies in Sioux Falls, some of it tied to people and companies accused of human rights abuses and other wrongdoing.”

Snowden Grills WaPo for ‘Embarrassingly Weak’ Reaction to NSO Spyware Scandal, Says it’s Untrue Pegasus Can’t Target US Phones, by RT News

The Washington Post Can’t Stop Babbling About Russians ‘Hacking Our Minds’, by Caitlin Johnstone

Somehow Russian government propaganda can hack Americans’ minds, but never American government and legacy media propaganda. From Caitlin Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com:

The Washington Post has published another article warning its readers that the Russians are “hacking our minds”, this one authored by CNN’s Fareed Zakaria.

Russia hasn’t just hacked our computer systems. It’s hacked our minds.” blares the ridiculous, propagandistic headline for an article about “the Russian model” of propaganda which “rests on the principle that people get convinced when they hear the same message many times from a variety of sources, no matter how biased.”

Which is funny, since this is not the first time WaPo itself has repeated this cartoonish narrative about Russian mind-hackers.

Just two months ago the Washington Post editorial board published an article titled “The U.S. may be safe from foreign interference in this election. But what about perception hacking?“, which opens with the line “Russia and other adversaries may not need to hack the election if they can hack something else: our minds.”

The paranoid screed unironically argued that Russia is using its super powerful propaganda engine to make people paranoid and doubtful of US electoral systems, which could actually have an adverse effect on the US election. As though telling people their mental and perceptual faculties are being hacked by a hostile foreign enemy with the goal of influencing the election would not make them paranoid and doubtful of US electoral systems.

Forty percent of people with coronavirus infections have no symptoms. Might they be the key to ending the pandemic? By Ariana Eunjung Cha

You know the mainstream media coronavirus narrative is crumbling when The Washington Post publishes a story implicitly challenging the assertion repeated endlessly as fact that Covid-19 is some sort of “novel” virus from which nobody has any natural immunities. From Ariana Eunjung Cha at washingtonpost.com:

When researcher Monica Gandhi began digging deeper into outbreaks of the novel coronavirus, she was struck by the extraordinarily high number of infected people who had no symptoms.

A Boston homeless shelter had 147 infected residents, but 88 percent had no symptoms even though they shared their living space. A Tyson Foods poultry plant in Springdale, Ark., had 481 infections, and 95 percent were asymptomatic. Prisons in Arkansas, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia counted 3,277 infected people, but 96 percent were asymptomatic.

During its seven-month global rampage, the coronavirus has claimed more than 700,000 lives. But Gandhi began to think the bigger mystery might be why it has left so many more practically unscathed.

What was it about these asymptomatic people, who lived or worked so closely to others who fell severely ill, she wondered, that protected them? Did the “dose” of their viral exposure make a difference? Was it genetics? Or might some people already have partial resistance to the virus, contrary to our initial understanding?

Efforts to understand the diversity in the illness are finally beginning to yield results, raising hope the knowledge will help accelerate development of vaccines and therapies — or possibly even create new pathways toward herd immunity in which enough of the population develops a mild version of the virus that they block further spread and the pandemic ends.

An Effective COVID Treatment the Media Continues to Besmirch, by Steven Hatfill

One of the more infuriating aspects of the coronavirus idiocy is its proponents insistence that their measures are backed by science (they’re not), but that doctor’s experience and experimentation with hydroxychloroquine is not (it is, the FDA does not have a monopoly on science). From Steven Hatfill at realclearpolitics.com:

On Friday, July 31, in a column ostensibly dealing with health care “misinformation,” Washington Post media critic Margaret Sullivan opened by lambasting “fringe doctors spouting dangerous falsehoods about hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 wonder cure.”

Actually, it was Sullivan who was spouting dangerous falsehoods about this drug, something the Washington Post and much of the rest of the media have been doing for months. On May 15, the Post offered a stark warning to any Americans who may have taken hope in a possible therapy for COVID-19. In the newspaper’s telling, there was nothing unambiguous about the science — or the politics — of hydroxychloroquine: “Drug promoted by Trump as coronavirus game-changer increasingly linked to deaths,” blared the headline. Written by three Post staff writers, the story asserted that the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine in treating COVID-19 is scant and that the drug is inherently unsafe. This claim is nonsense.

Biased against the use of hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 — and the Washington Post is hardly alone — the paper described an April 21, 2020, drug study on U.S. Veterans Affairs patients hospitalized with the illness. It found a high death rate in patients taking the drug hydroxychloroquine. But this was a flawed study with a small sample, the main flaw being that the drug was given to the sickest patients who were already dying because of their age and severe pre-existing conditions. This study was quickly debunked. It had been posted on a non-peer-reviewed medical archive that specifically warns that studies posted on its website should not be reported in the media as established information.

Bernie Tells “Autocrat” & “Thug” Putin To “Stay Out” Of US Elections, But Also Slams WaPo For Hit Job, by Tyler Durden

The democratic media are putting the same Russian hit on Bernie Sanders that they tried on Donald Trump. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

The newest evidence-free anonymously sourced claims of Russian interference ahead of the 2020 election is a return to and new twist on Trump and Putin’s supposed three-dimensional chess playing, this latest version which goes something like this:

…the Kremlin wants Trump for four more years, so the best way to do this is elevate Bernie Sanders as the Democratic nominee — ensuring a Trump win. 

Sanders said he’s been briefed on the matter, however, The Washington Post admitted revealingly, “It is not clear what form that Russian assistance has taken.”

As we noted earlier this seemingly by design puts the Democratic front-runner in a difficult spot, given he runs the risk of being attacked for disbelieving (even disloyalty to) U.S. intelligence, and, by default, defending the Kremlin.

Naturally, he had to go full anti-Putin to satisfy the Russia-obsessed Democratic base, warning the “autocrat” and “thug” to “stay out out US elections”.

“Mr. Putin is a thug. He is an autocrat. He may be a friend of Donald Trump —  he’s not a friend of mine,” Sanders said while in California.

“Let me tell Mr. Putin: The American people, whether you’re Republicans, Democrats, independents, are sick and tired of seeing Russia and other countries interfering in our elections.”
