Russia Trumps Ecocide at the Petroleum Broadcasting System

About the Author
Paul Street’s latest book is They Rule: The 1% v. Democracy (Paradigm, 2014) 

“The alternative” is underway, aided and abetted by a dominant U.S. media that is absurdly obsessed with RussiaTrump to a degree that is egregiously irresponsible given the pressing significance of other topics, including climate change, the biggest story of our or any time. It’s also a story to which Trump is intimately connected. As Noam Chomsky said before the election, Trump and the lunatic Republican Party’s opposition to climate protection and their promise to “deregulate energy” amounted to “almost a death-knell for the species.”


^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.^3000

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.^3000

The most important act anyone can do is stop using all mainstream media.^3000

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda. ^3000

Toxic sludge for the mind.^3000

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.^3000

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires.^3000

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.^3000

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.^3000

But are its murderers and undertakers. ^3000

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork. ^3000

And the murder of the planet^3000

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity.^3000

That's 8 guys are richer than 4 billion people.^3000

The corporate media is their main line of defense.^3000

That's why the best way to break their hold on us...^3000

Is to break their media.^3000

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.^3000

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.^3000

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.^3000

Defeat their power to mislead.^3000

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion.^3000

And they never stop.^3000

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie. ^3000

So trust no one on the Big Media.^3000

And beware of "entertainment shows". ^3000

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.^3000

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying DHS. ^3000

The police state.^3000

Or CBS Madam Secretary. ^3000

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing. ^3000

Telling us the US government is good.^3000

That the president is good...that its cabinet is good.^3000

That the US establishment—which they represent...^3000

has noble aims. Rubbish!^3000

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.^3000

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices. ^3000

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media.^3000

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.^3000

Become a soldier in the battle of communications. ^3000

Which we must win.^3000

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war...^3000

now it's a matter of survival!^3000

Start today! Share our articles on your social media.^3000

Put us on Facebook, Twitter, Google or Instagram accounts! ^3000

Parting shot—a word from the editors
The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found

In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump — a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism. By pushing Trump into a corner and demanding that he display his most bellicose self, or be ceaselessly mocked as a “puppet” and minion of Russia, a lesser power, the War Party and its media and clandestine services have created a perfect storm of mayhem that may consume us all.

  1. The big problem in US politics is underestimating one’s adversary and this is even more so with the resistance against Trump. By bringing in Russia as a potential hook to bring Trump down the left (and surely the Democrats) erect a screen of protection because it is pure nonsense and the public sees it and feels bored with it already as both CNN and WNBC keep hammering on the same boring sore spot. What are they trying to do? It is like what was done with Clinton who sticks cigars up an aide in the oval office thereby demonstrating his contempt for the whole political establishment. The harder the screaming the sooner the culprit is let off, unlike Nixon who offended the wrong people. Contempt for rules and the public is indeed what is at the root of power in the US . After all the elites feel that they can get away with everything, and they do. One can see this clearly in the privileged brutal faces of the Trump juniors who go in for big game hunting at a time when wild species die out every day. That is no different from the aristocratic clique in pre-revolutionary France. One supposes that the US is too large and too diverse a country for a concerted effort for change, for confirmation of the very principles on which this country was started. The looting of public funds and the gradual impoverishment of a very rich country are easily visible now and the shrill propaganda gets louder and louder for hiding the harsh truth with abundant lies.

    1. In the US, the left haven’t had a voice in years. They’ve been drowned out by the liberal bourgeoisie, calling on us to Stand in Solidarity — to protect the advantages of the better-off. A left would have been shining a spotlight on our poverty crisis as the proof of the grave failures of our deregulated capitalism.

      That said — within one week of the election, the Clinton wing jumped from the predictable “Trump stole the election” to the inexplicable “Russia stole the election,” and they’ve worked hard ever since to build a tale to support that claim. This has been the height of irresponsibility, and is probably the final nail in the Democrats’ coffin.
