It’s not that one doesn’t believe Russia is capable of propaganda, it’s that one believes the US government is similarly aberrant. Recalling a statement from a Russian citizen before Russian views were censored away from the US public, “it’s not that Russian people aren’t aware their government lies to them, it’s that Russian people are aware of the lies, unlike American people”.

It’s not that one doesn’t believe Russia is capable of propaganda, it’s that one is sure the US government is similarly aberrant. Recalling a statement from a Russian citizen before Russian views were censored away from the US public, “it’s not that Russian people aren’t aware their government lies to them, it’s that Russian people are aware of the lies, unlike American people”. But then, when one is “exceptional”………
Example 1–https://www.rt.com/russia/570714-russia-ukraine-pentagon-biolabs/ –Russia’s Defense Ministry on Monday laid out more evidence that US-funded laboratories were working in Ukraine. Documents and materials recovered by Russian troops showed that Western pharmaceutical companies operating in territory under Kiev’s control conducted HIV/AIDS research on Ukrainian military personnel.
According to Kirillov, the Russian military has recovered more than 20,000 documents and other materials related to the biological programs in Ukraine, while interviewing eyewitnesses and participants. The evidence “confirms the focus of the Pentagon on creating biological weapons components and testing them on the population of Ukraine and other states along [Russia’s] borders,” the general told reporters.

Example 2—https://www.cdc.gov/tuskegee/timeline.htm#:~:text=It%20was%20originally%20called%20the,informed%20consent%20was%20not%20collected. –In 1932, the USPHS, working with the Tuskegee Institute, began a study to record the natural history of syphilis. It was originally called the “Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male” (now referred to as the “USPHS Syphilis Study at Tuskegee”). The study initially involved 600 Black men – 399 with syphilis, 201 who did not have the disease. Participants’ informed consent was not collected. Researchers told the men they were being treated for “bad blood,” a local term used to describe several ailments, including syphilis, anemia, and fatigue. In exchange for taking part in the study, the men received free medical exams, free meals, and burial insurance.

As the positive voter response increased for Bernie Sanders, it shouldn’t be overlooked that it was an endorsement that seemed chillingly based upon meritocracy, has given us Joe Biden for President. This doesn’t mean the Democratic Joe Biden is different from the Republican Donald Trump against whom he ran. It only means it feels like the rigging was complete by the D&R duopoly.
Censorship whether actual or by meritocracy endorsement seems replete.
Consider this censored comedian. —- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bme0uvDRhvk —

The story of Paya (water) in Payahuunadü is important to understand and share. This is the first video in a series we will release over the next few months to help educate and bring awareness to the story of Paya (water).
Since 1913, the City of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) has stolen and exported its water from the lands of the Nüümü (Paiute) and Newe (Shoshone) people. LADWP owns 95% of the valley floor, while the tribes combined own 1/3 of 1%.
For over a century, land that was once lush has been turned into a dry desert as Los Angeles continues to take the water from here.
Over the last 5 years alone, 50% of LA’s water supply has come from Payahuunadü. –end of remaloeb info and included with appreciation–
When predatory capitalism manifests physically, one supposes it can be broken down into the simplicity of male v female. FACTually, governing systems are much more complicated and may use female v male to its end. — https://popularresistance.org/nicaragua-is-run-by-women-with-a-distinctive-type-of-feminism/ —
As the Sandinista Revolution is finally able to make its platform a reality, Nicaragua has made significant achievements in healthcare, education, housing, renewable energy and food sovereignty, to name a few. One achievement that is starting to get more attention is the gain in equality for women. The Global Gender Gap Report for 2022 ranked Nicaragua 7th in the world for gender parity. Clearing the FOG spoke with Jill Clark-Gollub, who recently returned from a delegation to Nicaragua that focused on conditions for women. She describes the country as “run by women” who connect their feminism to the struggles against capitalism, colonialism and patriarchy. Clark-Gollub also dispels misinformation about Nicaragua being promoted in the US corporate media and explains how the US is working to undermine the gains of the Sandinistas through hybrid warfare.–end of popularresistance info–

In the USA, environmental activists can be labeled as domestic terrorists, the better to incarcerate for longer sentences. — https://popularresistance.org/mass-protests-by-climate-activists-follow-eviction-of-occupied-german-village/ –Lützerath, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany – Thousands protested the planned expansion of an immense open-pit coal mine, one of the largest in Europe. The forceful eviction of climate activists who were occupying Lützerath for more than two years and the demolition of the village itself became a call to action, sparking the largest protest yet seen in the region. The sheer number of people, together with the presence of famed Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, attracted the attention of both local and international media, helping to broadcast climate activists’ searing criticism of the German government’s energy policy, which has used the war in Ukraine as an excuse to continue burning coal.

|“It’s More Than Gun Violence”
Webinar, 7:30 pm CT, Wed, Feb 1, 2023
US gun violence has become unbearable. Claims regarding the second
amendment affect how federal, state and local governments enact gun safety
regulations. A culture of death permeates Missouri’s history of racial
terror lynchings and modern-day application of the death penalty. A model
municipal program in Ward 22 of St. Louis encourages communities to
police themselves and reduce violence by training participants how to use
deescalation tactics when intervening in confrontations. The colonial
mode of production forms a violent parasitic relationship between Europeans
vs. African people and other oppressed masses. This is particularly true
for resource extraction from colonized humanity.

From lakotalaw — As you may know, I’ve been involved in the landback movement for quite some time. Several years ago, I began helping lead the effort to return the Black Hills to the Lakota People. Protecting our water and returning our most sacred lands to Native stewardship — and defending them from degradation at the hands of mining and pipelines — is of paramount importance to me. I hope the same holds true for anyone who cares about the future of Unci Maka, our Grandmother Earth.
This movement extends far beyond the boundaries of Lakota Country. Recently, a friend of mine shared an important opportunity to return land to Native care in what we now call California. Because it’s critical that we act in solidarity with one another whenever possible, today I share this effort with you. I’ll describe things below, and I also hope you’ll visit the Owens Valley Indian Water Commission (OVIWC) website to learn more.
Located just east of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in Central California, Payahuunadü — known in English as Owen’s Valley and translated as “land of the flowing water” — is part of the traditional homelands of the Nüümü (Paiute) and Newe (Shoshone) Native nations. They have now joined forces under OVIWC, a three-tribe consortium with an opportunity to acquire Three Creeks, a lush and beautiful five-acre property within Payahuunadü.
The tribes intend to utilize this oasis as a haven for cultural resurgence involving food sovereignty initiatives, ceremonial healing, revitalization of kinship, and art and education to address traumas caused by displacement. Those goals also go hand in hand with a desire to preserve and protect this sacred space amid aggressive attempts by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (DWP) to control the area’s water.
Over the past five years, 50 percent of Los Angeles’s water supply has come from Payahuunadü. The DWP has been taking and exporting its water since 1913 and owns 95 percent of the valley floor — while tribes share ownership of one third of one percent. This injustice must be addressed, and with an additional foothold in the area, the Nüümü and Newe Peoples will be better equipped to defend their homelands as a whole.
My dad, Chase, is also on his way to Nüümü and Newe lands in present-day Nevada to meet this week with the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony and other Native leaders involved in the battle to protect PeeHee Mu’Huh (Thacker Pass) from lithium mining. You’ll hear more about that soon! Our family thanks you for joining us in showing solidarity with all Indigenous nations seeking to defend and return sacred lands.

America has the power to stop the war in Ukraine.

The lead demand is simple and direct, “Not One More Penny for war in Ukraine.” It is a demand that emphasizes what we in the U.S. can do to end the war, not what others can do. After all, the only government we have the power to influence is our own.
