PATRICK ARMSTRONG—Consumers of the print or electronic output of the League of Copy Typists and their Instructors are expected to believe many impossible things and believe them, not just before breakfast, but all day too. Putin kills his enemies by using spectacular methods that can easily be traced back to Russia and preferably when he’s staging some high-profile event like the Olympics or World Cup. Russian submarines only fool around in the waterways of neutral countries whose elites want to get into NATO, never in NATO ones.

HE ZHAO—Many socialist states collapsed in the late 80s and early 90s, succumbed to pressure and sabotage from hostile bourgeois states, torn apart, cannibalised over night, and became vassals of the global neo-liberal order, dooming entire populations to poverty and misery: Yugoslavia, USSR, GDR, etc. The same fate was planned for China, but the Communist Party was able to defeat the counter-revolution, and the country has remained independent to this day.

ERIC ARNOW—The US, having genocided the Native Americans and stolen half of Mexico asserted that Mexico had attacked US troops along the US Mexico Border when in fact it was a fake provocation. Even Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain and Henry David Thoreau called that casus belli bullshit back in the day.So in 1898, the Empire was on the prowl again. It coveted Cuba and the Philippines, which were owned by the Spanish Empire. The Empire needed another war. So William Randolph Hearst sent a photographer to Havana…..”You supply the photographs and I’ll supply to war”. He said that in response the photographer who reported there was no there there. Nothing to report.
PHIL BUTLER—The latest wrongful and ignorant rampage against Putin concerns his “alleged” wealth. Hours after the Kremlin released the Russian leader’s salary and net worth statistics, the ravaging liberal order wolves howled in pain about expensive wristwatches Putin owns. This Quartz story is typical. According to the “geniuses” of western economic, Putin is worth in between $70 and $200 billion dollars. He is also the 21st Century version of the Wizard of Oz for his ability to totally hide the vastest horde of wealth ever accumulated by a single person (Sarcasm a must).
