New Media Are As Intertwined With Imperial Power As Old Media.

Empire To Expand NATO In Response To War Caused By NATO Expansion. Finland’s addition will more than double the size of NATO’s direct border with Russia, a major national security concern for Moscow. These revelations emerge in the wake of admissions that Ukraine is crawling with CIA officers.

Western Officials Admit Ukraine Is Crawling With CIA Personnel. The admission that NATO powers are so involved in operations against a nuclear superpower means we are closer to seeing a nuclear exchange than anyone should be comfortable with.
People Don’t Think Hard Enough About What Nuclear War Is And What It Would Mean. Especially when we’ve got a steadily escalating proxy war which the standoff in Lithuania could easily see spin out into a direct hot war between Russia and NATO powers.

Biden’s New Press Secretary Almost Calls Saudis A ‘Regime’. Which is hilarious, because for imperial spinmeisters the word “regime” is traditionally reserved for governments which are not aligned with the US empire, because it suggests that they are undemocratic and authoritarian.
MBS Sullies Saudi Arabia’s Good Name. Biden will indeed be visiting Saudi Arabia in contradiction of his campaign vows to make the nation a “pariah” for its human rights violations, and everyone’s acting like visiting a murderous tyrant is somehow beneath the dignity of a US president.
They Plan On Repeating “Putin’s Price Hike” Until People Believe It. President Biden used the phrase “Putin’s price hike” again in a reaction to Friday’s Consumer Price Index report revealing continued high inflation, showing once again that the US government believes Americans are idiots.
The US Empire Acts Like A Textbook Manipulative Sociopath. Because their lives revolve around manipulation, anything which poses an obstacle to their ability to manipulate is seen as a threat. Worst of all, everyone they know starting to talk to each other about what a dishonest manipulator they are
I defy you to find me anything more American than Washington decoupling relief for its own citizens from its proxy war funding because it wants to make sure the proxy war funding actually passes. You couldn’t come up with a better summation of the US empire in a nutshell if you tried.

Ukraine Alone Makes Biden The Worst US President In A Long Time. Antiwar libertarian hero Scott Horton has a viral tweet going around which reads simply, “Biden’s refusal to attempt to negotiate an end to the war in Ukraine is the greatest scandal in American political history.”
A hostile military alliance expanding to Russia’s borders isn’t a provocation, sending weapons to be used by CIA-trained fighters backed by US intelligence isn’t a proxy war, those Nazis aren’t Nazis, you’re being censored for your own good, trust the media, the government is your friend.

It’s nuts that there are still grown adults who think Putin invaded Ukraine for no other reason than because he is evil and hates freedom. Focus less on the Azov Battalion and more on the fact that the US deliberately provoked this war with the goal of toppling Moscow.
No government entity has any business appointing itself the authority to sort information from disinformation on behalf of the public, because government entities are not impartial and omniscient deities who can be entrusted to serve the public as objective arbiters of absolute reality.

This War Is A Propaganda Campaign Wrapped In A Psyop. The country with the worst elections in the western world, whose government intervenes in foreign elections more than any other government on earth, is waging a dangerous proxy war to save democracy in Ukraine, a nation which is not a democracy.

Hard To Swallow Pills. You were born in the middle of the most sophisticated and expansive mass-scale perception management operation that has ever taken place. The news media is propaganda and schooling is designed to condition us to accept that propaganda.
Shitlibs Are Foam-Brained Human Livestock. The hyperbolic language westerners use to describe fairly normal modern warfare in Ukraine suggests they’ve invested exactly zero thought in what their own governments have been doing in the middle east for the last two decades.
