Few any longer believe the “mainstream media,” that is, the presstitutes. This has put them into a panic as the presstitutes lose their value to the ruling elite if the presstitutes cannot control the explanations in order to justify the self-serving agendas of the ruling elite. To fight back against the alternative media that does... Read More
I am convinced that the US, and probably the entire Western world, that is, the American Empire, has entered an era in which respect for truth does not exist in public and private institutions.

Alex is certainly correct to stress that elements in the CIA, or... Read More
Speaking of fake news, the latest issue of the National Enquirer at the supermarket checkout is giving the mainstream presstitute media a run for the money: “Castro’s Deathbed Confession: I Killed JFK. How I framed Oswald.” That’s almost as good as the fake news going around the presstitute media, such as the TV stations, the... Read More
The fake news stories pouring out of the blood-drenched Obama regime, the ruling Oligarchy’s “liberal progressive” well paid front groups for war criminal Hillary, and secret and unnamed propagandists, such as PropOrNot, endorsed by the Washington Post, New York Times, and the rest of the press prostitutes who lie for money, are intended to discredit...

Big Money and the US government controlled by Big Money intend to close down Internet truthtellers. As Trump intends to reduce the tensions between nuclear powers, the 200 List prepared by the shadowy Internet site, PropOrNot, is in Trump’s way. Either Trump will be apprised and convinced of the “Russian threat,” or the dissident websites... Read More

Seasoned journalist, White House official, and historian Pat Buchanan has responded to the Washington Post’s fake news about the independent journalists on the 200 List being Russian agents by reminding us that the US government has always been a major disseminator of fake news.http://original.antiwar.com/buchanan/2016/12/01/fake-news-war-party-lies/ No one knows who is behind the newly created PropOrNot website...
