  Putin's 15 Years in Power:   Information Clearing House - ICH

  Putin's 15 Years in Power:   Information Clearing House - ICH In the US, PBS recently ran a documentary depicting Putin as beyond evil - a thieving, murdering, democracy-smashing jerk who then invaded Ukraine. German state TV ran one with an almost identical story line just a few weeks ago.

We keep telling people - those western versions of Putin are simply not true, and amount to the crudest form of character assassination. So now here is the antidote. We would advise everyone to watch both versions and draw their own conclusions. Once you dig into the facts, it becomes pretty obvious who is BSing, and who isn’t.

We think, and we keep telling everyone this, that Putin has done a remarkably good job running his country, and seems to be a very admirable man. It’s hard to disagree with this after watching this movie. - Russia Insider

Article: Memorial Day Is A Hoax | OpEdNewsMemorial Day commemorates soldiers killed in war. We are told that the war dead died for us and our freedom. US Marine General Smedley Butler challenged this view. He said that our soldiers died for the profits of the bankers, Wall Street, Standard Oil, and the United Fruit Company. Here is an excerpt from a speech that he gave in 1933:

Article: William And Mary Honors War Criminal | OpEdNews

Article: William And Mary Honors War Criminal | OpEdNewsNothing better illustrates the extent to which the United States has turned its back on the rule of law than when the likes of Condoleezza Rice are asked to address graduates and receive doctoral degrees honoris causa at university commencements. Ms. Rice -- in my view a war criminal -- was accorded those honors Saturday by the College of William and Mary, the second-oldest college in the U.S.

Unlike Rice's other university appearances in recent years, there was not the slightest sign of unhappiness, let alone protest. Most of the graduating seniors were not yet 10 years old in 2003 when Rice played a key role helping President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney launch a war of aggression against Iraq. So, the graduates' ignorance may perhaps be understandable, but it does not speak well for their grasp of recent history.

Obama, Bush and Carson believe this nonsense? Our faith-addled, God-fearing leaders need to put superstition aside - Salon.com

Obama, Bush and Carson believe this nonsense? Our faith-addled, God-fearing leaders need to put superstition aside - Salon.comCNN might wish to rename its show “This Week in Politics” as “This Week in God”; it’s getting that bad. Just in the days between May 1 and May 7, for example, the Seventh-Day Adventist evolution-denier Ben Carson announced his intention to seek the 2016 Republican nomination, as did the Southern Baptist and onetime pastor Mike Huckabee. The Episcopalian-turned-Roman Catholic Jeb Bush has puzzlingly refrained from following in their footsteps, but that he gave this year’s commencement address at that stronghold of unreason and superstitious darkness, the Jerry Falwell-founded Liberty University, the site of the Southern Baptist Ted Cruz’s announcement in late March, augurs ill for rationalists and other sane folk. Bush will announce, it’s just a question of when.
