RT has asked the US State Department for specific information concerning allegations that Russia is targeting hospitals in Syria. The response was a reiteration of those allegations and a refusal to treat RT in the same way as other media outlets.
During Wednesday’s State Department briefing, spokesman John Kirby accused Russia and the Syrian regime of the bombing of “five hospitals and at least one mobile clinic in Syria.” RT’s reporter Gayane Chichakyan asked Kirby to specify the details of the alleged incidents, including their location.
My Commentary: Well, then… It looks like the mainstream media monopoly is officially losing it’s death-grip over the mind of the public!
Meanwhile, Obama meets with German chancellor, Angela Merkel, in Berlin for a joint press conference, and stands by silently, while she states:
“Digitisation is a disruptive technological force that brings about deep-seated change and transformation in society. Look at the history of the printing press, when this was invented what kind of consequences it had. Or industrialisation, what consequences that had.”
“Very often, it led to enormous transformational processes within individual societies and it took a while until societies learned to find the right kinds of policies to contain this, to manage and steer this. We live in a period of profound transformation.”
(Meagan Flynn) The driving infractions and fines had piled up on Robin Clearey, who stood before Magistrate Joe Licata after she was ticketed for driving without working taillights, a license or valid registration.
he had been through this many times before, she told the judge, and at that very moment she also had a criminal case pending for driving with an invalid license, for which she would stay in jail unless she paid a $3,500 bond. Licata warned her that, if she didn’t pay the fines for these tickets and renew her license after paying surcharges to the Department of Public Safety, “you’re gonna get arrested every time you get pulled over.”
That was nothing to her, Clearey responded — because she had already become trapped in a cycle of arrests.
“It’s nothing to me either,” Licata told her. “It’s job security.”
My Commentary: Read former Clinton administration official, Bill Ivey’s, email to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta. It was sent out on March 13, 2016… Discover how the elitist cowards-that-be, and their minions, conspire to create an OBLIVIOUS and OBEDIENT American public, in order to push their corrupt agendas.
Within his email, Ivey wrote to Podesta, “and as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly. This problem demands some serious, serious thinking – and not just poll driven, demographically-inspired messaging.”
The following debate originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted artworkbeing shared by the page, “NaturalNews.com“…
“Over-medicated and under-educated is exactly how they want us.”
Murilo M.: Well, I know that to the uninformed it may seem creepy the idea that lots of people, including children, take medication, but if you take your time to study neurology and psychiatry you will understand the reasons behind it. There are good reasons why lots of people are medicated. The only problem is that unfortunately some people are misdiagnosed and end up taking the wrong medication.
Murilo M.: Mental problems are more common than people think, and medication can be of great help. I say that because I know how much the substance Mirtazapine has helped me, it has made magic. And also because I know people with ADHD and I know how much Ritalin has helped them.
Rayn: The artwork says “overmedicated,” and you appear to have formulated your very own personal definition of what that means to you. You’re arguing against a straw-man you created, and simultaneously calling your imagined opponent “uninformed.” Quite amusing, actually.
Murilo M.: My entire point was to criticize people who believe ADHD is a myth and medicating children with Ritalin is wrong. The same applies to people who think depression is just sadness and anti-depressants are dangerous.
(Peter Van Buren) Snowden is a helluva movie, kicking an audience’s ass on a number of levels. I had a chance to see the film last night at a preview event; it opens everywhere on September 16. Go see it.
On one level the film presents Snowden’s story as a political thriller. A brave but frightened man, certain he is doing the right thing but worried if he can pull it off, smuggles some of the NSA’s most secret information out of a secure facility. He makes contact with skeptical journalists in Hong Kong, convinces them of the importance of what he has to say, and then goes on the run from a U.S. government out to arrest, or, possibly assassinate, him.
In interviews Stone has made clear that he has dramatized and/or altered some events, and that his film is not a documentary. It does keep you on the edge of your beliefs, watching a story you know as if you don’t.
