Only Adult Children Still Believe U.S. Propaganda
Edward Curtin | Behind the Curtain – TRANSCEND Media Service, 3 Oct 2022

30 Sep 2022 – It should now be quite clear to any reasonable person that the Biden administration is hell-bent on destroying Russia and will risk nuclear war in doing so.  It has already started World War III with its use of Ukraine to light the final match.  The problem is that reasonable people are in very short supply.

Reaping the Whirlwind
Scott Ritter | Consortium News - TRANSCEND Media Service, 26 Sep 2022

22 Sep 2022 – “A permanent member of the UNSC invaded its neighbor, attempted to erase a sovereign state from the map,” Biden said. “Russia has shamelessly violated the core tenets of the UN Charter.” History, however, is a harsh mistress, where facts become inconvenient to perception; through the prism of historical fact, the narrative being promulgated by Biden becomes flipped.

Camila Escalante | CovertAction Magazine – TRANSCEND Media Service, 19 Sep 2022

13 Sep 2022 – It’s a witch hunt where Washington is saying either you are with the U.S., NATO and the West, or you’re against us. Anyone trying to be ‘neutral’ becomes ‘pro-Russia’. Meanwhile, no one is sanctioning the U.S. or the EU for their plundering wars or their violent crimes against humanity and war crimes throughout the world.

Let’s Stop Pretending America Is a Functioning Democracy
The Chris Hedges Report – TRANSCEND Media Service, 12 Sep 2022

4 Sep 2022 – The U.S. posits itself as a champion of opportunity, freedom, human rights and civil liberties, even as half the country struggles at subsistence level, militarized police gun down and imprison the poor with impunity, and the primary business of the state is war. This collective self-delusion masks who we have become. Under inverted totalitarianism, there is no attempt, unlike fascism and state socialism, to address the needs of the poor.
