text RussiaGate is a sophisticated Shell Game by DLi
The current U.S. corporate media's hysteria over the "RussiaGate" affair is the outcome of a highly sophisticated Shell Game launched by the deepest bowels of the USA Imperial ruling junta. At its most basic nucleus, it is a desperate last-ditch attempt, by the Empire's GateKeepers, to return to the halcyon days of the 1950s Cold War era; a time when the manipulated consensus and bi-partisan ideological unity existed to promote the post-WW II Pax Americana across the entire Globe....

text Carl Schmidt and the New Right by Bernd Reismann

text KPFA Management Abandoning The Station's Principles by Steve Gilmartin
The KPFA of 2018, however, seems all-too aligned with national security state messaging, with its constant parroting of corporate media’s evidence-free “Russia meddled” narrative and, with occasional exceptions, no recognition of the grotesque but almost completely unexamined and outsized influence of the state of Israel over US politics.
