The Russia beat: CBS lays another egg; Putin inexplicably chooses notorious Atlanticist Medvedev as PM

PATRICE GREANVILLE—It does not surprise us, then, to see CBS filing a shallow and cynically misleading report on the Putin inauguration, literally soaked in the kind of deep state anti-Russia propaganda that distinguishes all US media output. The piece is delivered by Moscow’s CBS Grande Putain Elizabeth Palmers, a woman who obviously does not begin to understand the meaning of shame, nor does she seem to care about her contribution to stoking the fires of great nuclear-armed super power confrontation. Opportunism and sociopathy is of course a personality necessity for successful careers in western corporate media.

The real problem is that they don’t want an anti-imperialist and anti-Zionist government on the Arabian Peninsula controlling the Red Sea and giving the civilian population in the monarchies any ideas. The mere possibility that a Yemeni government could ally with the Iran axis is enough for the US to say they already do and carry out military intervention accordingly.

Check Out Nikki Haley Pretending She Doesn’t Love Violence And Dead Children

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—I am not being hyperbolic here. Neoconservatism is not some political ideology which can be placed on a left-to-right spectrum based on one’s ideas about fiscal policy and social issues, it is the civilian-slaughtering American supremacist agenda to butcher, bomb, sanction, starve, bully and manipulate the world population in order to ensure the hegemony of the US-centralized power establishment. I am not condemning an opposing set of political opinions here, I am condemning the mass murder of innocent men, women and children.
