Seeking Truth in a Country of Lies – Critical and Lyrical Essays

By Jim Miles, September 14, 2020

The main theme is propaganda and how it is used by the government, the deep state, and the media that is all part of that.  Curtin brings it from the era of Bernays to the current digital era of communications technology, the latter creating a state of detachment from reality caused partly by the profusion of perspectives, but also largely due to its diversion of the self from the real world it is living through.  The digital world is one of “suspended animation”, “historical amnesia and digital dementia”, a “mediated reality”.

Can You Name One Company that Has Moved to the UK Because of Brexit?

By Jack Peat, September 14, 2020

A Brexit quandary has been making the rounds on social media as the Britain’s exit from the union looms. With just months to go until the end of the transition period and just weeks until the two sides must arrive at a deal, reminders of the potential economic fall out of the split have been circulating online.

Johnson Intended to Break the EU Withdrawal Agreement Even Before He Signed It

By Craig Murray, September 14, 2020

For Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the Withdrawal Agreement provisions on Northern Ireland were only ever a device to get him over an immediate political difficulty. The fact he simply lied throughout the election campaign that the Withdrawal Agreement imposed no new checks or paperwork between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK, should have made plain he was not serious about it. He had simply lied to the countries of the EU in signing a treaty he never had an intention to honour.

Civilization in the Overdrive: A Conversation at the Edge of the Human Future

By Richard Falk and Konrad Stachnio, September 14, 2020

It is not possible for someone without access to highly classified materials to assess accurately the policy significance and content of the Black Budget in the years since 1945, including the financing of a range of intelligence activities and a variety of covert intervention projects. It is possible to put forward the view that the CIA and special operations forces are both partially financed by the Black Budget that has been integral to the formation and execution of American grand strategy since the end of World War II, building its unaccountable claims on government spending for global security as a byproduct of Cold War imperatives.

The Sudden Reversal on Facial Masks: Mandated Public Masking in Wisconsin, USA

By Prof. Bill Willers, September 14, 2020

Wisconsin, USA: In the contained environment of Wisconsin, the Governor ordered citizens to wear masks in public, effective August 1, 2020. On July 3, 2020, the State’s Chief Medical Officer, in a televised interview, stated “Now the science is in”. [Because of] “recent studies with large numbers of patients in large numbers of countries….  we have hard evidence that risk of transmission goes down dramatically when people wear masks.” “Hard scientific evidence” would necessarily indicate randomized controlled trials so persuasive as to counter the wealth of previous studies.

Chinese Military Calls US “Destroyer of World Peace”, Citing Millions Dead & Displaced in Iraq, Syria, Libya

By Zero Hedge, September 14, 2020

Following the US and China imposing tit-for-tat restrictions on each other’s diplomats and embassy staff, China’s defense ministry on Sunday blasted the US as the “destroyer of world peace”.   The statements are specifically in response to the Department of Defense releasing a report earlier this month which predicted that “Over the next decade, China’s nuclear warhead stockpile — currently estimated to be in the low 200s — is projected to at least double in size as China expands and modernizes its nuclear forces.”

A Truly Poisonous Foreign Policy. The Blame Putin Narrative…

By Philip Giraldi, September 13, 2020

If one had been reading America’s leading newspapers and magazines over the past several weeks the series of featured stories suggesting that Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is some kind of latter day Lucrezia Borgia would have been impossible to avoid. Putin, who was simultaneously being branded as some kind of totalitarian monster, apparently does not just go around chopping off heads.
