News of the death of Alexei Navalny in a Russian prison very quickly spread across the Western media, while condemnation of Russia over his death emanated from behind the podiums of Western leaders. Before any investigation could possibly be mounted, the collective West concluded that the Russian state was responsible for Navalny’s death. The disproportionate concern US President Joe Biden showed for a Russian citizen dying in a Russian prison versus President Biden’s silence over the death of American citizen Gonzalo Lira in a Ukrainian prison, raises questions over the motivation behind this…

You be the judge. It is becoming clear that community standards do not apply to Facebook/Meta (is banned in Russia), MSM or whatever they call it, and many other internet sites, especially if the posts are in support of Ukraine or Poland. They are, in fact, instrumental in directing and misdirecting public discourse over Ukraine and the agenda of the [alleged] New World Order and its less than “honorable intentions”.

Several days ago, former Fox anchor Tucker Carlson sat down for a lengthy interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In the week preceding this unique Q&A, CNN and other Western media focused (inadvertently) on transforming Carlson into a living legend. That is to say, by using the same methods that helped make Vladimir Putin into a modern superhero. By constantly haranguing and mudslinging against Putin and Russia as a whole, the elite-run Western hierarchy was instrumental in creating a mystique and a celebrity of unparalleled influence…

“What goes around comes around”, so goes the old adage; that also applies to media coverage of the position of the US in World Affairs, and especially over the conduct of deadly conflicts in Ukraine and Israel.  Apparently the abrupt change in tone of Western media about Ukraine, or rather over the fighting in Ukraine, Palestine, and many parts of the world have suddenly met the underside of the bus, for starters!..

Most informed people are pretty tired of the nonsensical mudslinging Western mainstream media (tabloid media) engages in. And where Russia or her President Vladimir Putin are concerned, all information networks are like those Looney Tunes episodes we all watched as kids. I expect Porky Pig to pop out of my smartphone screen at any moment. It would all be hilarious if the disparaging lying were not so deadly serious.

If you read Western mainstream propaganda these days, you’ll find the truth hidden so deep no archaeologist could unearth it. A case in point is a buried lead in a story from the New York Post suggesting Russia has secret plans to hit NATO hard in the coming months. According to the Post’s Chris Nesi, leaked secret documents released by German newspaper BILD tell of Europe preparing for Vladimir Putin to expand his military operation in Ukraine and…

In early December, the Russian-language Internet was abuzz with the Washington Post (WP), which published a story on 4 December stating that indirect supplies of South Korean 155 mm artillery shells to Ukraine had made it a larger supplier of ammunition to Kyiv than all European countries combined. It has been claimed that Washington’s own production capacity for this type of ammunition is just over 1/10 of Ukraine’s demand, which reaches over 90,000 shells per month. In this connection, the US President’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan drew attention to South Korea…

Africa has become the main arena of both colonialism and neo-colonialism. Most countries on the continent experienced a ‘traditional’ form of colonialism. However, the Republic of South Africa had a significantly different history of colonialism. It is not by chance that it is labelled as colonialism of a special type. Whereas in most states on the continent, colonialism was imposed by European states from the outside, in South Africa the colonialists lived in the territory they occupied permanently…

While the national army of Mali continues its offensive against terrorist and armed groups in territories that the central authorities have ceased to control for many years now, thereby tackling the issue of the country’s security and territorial integrity, Western propaganda tools are back to their old ways. Even though neither the African countries themselves nor other world regions no longer trust the methods used by the latter. All this is quite as expected. After the blow dealt to France and other Western regimes, former colonial powers, both in Mali and in other…

At the end of October 2023, Amnesty International* published a report implicating Meta**, the company that owns, inter alia, Facebook** and Instagram**, in widespread human rights violations during the 2020-2022 conflict in the Tigray region. Thus, according to the human rights organization, Meta* failed to take effective measures to curb the spread of content advocating ethnic hatred and violence. Although the signing of agreements in Pretoria effectively ended the conflict-active…

Since taking office as Iraq’s president in October 2022, Mohammed Shia’ Sabbar Al-Sudani has made, or at least formally announced, a battle against corruption the centerpiece of his domestic agenda. Its progress has been, to put it mildly, underwhelming despite this long-overdue attempt to address the most difficult and crippling issue that is literally eating away at every aspect of society. An entrenched sectarian and tribal system of power sharing does not reduce systemic corruption. Iraq still struggles with inefficiency, bureaucracy, widespread kleptocracy, and a robust patronage system despite its massive oil resources…

A recent row between US-based social media giant Meta* (also known as Facebook*) and Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen, saw the Southeast Asian leader migrate from Facebook* to Telegram, a social media application popular in former Soviet republics and in a growing number of other nations around the globe. Global Voices, a Western foundation-funded media outlet, in an article titled, “Cambodian Prime Minister quits Facebook* after Oversight Board review,” claimed that Facebook* representatives decided to suspend Prime Minister Hun Sen’s account for six months after allegedly “inciting violence”…
