Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk resigned after two parties quit the ruling coalition and President Petro Poroshenko signaled his support for early elections.
Yatsenyuk told the parliament in Kiev today that he’s stepping down after losing his allies’ backing and failing to pass legislation. Former world boxing champion Vitali Klitschko’s UDAR and Svoboda, a nationalist group, said they’d leave the coalition and seek a snap parliamentary ballot, according to statements today on their websites.
“The coalition has fallen apart, laws haven’t been voted on, soldiers can’t be paid, there’s no money to buy rifles, there’s no possibility to store up gas,” Yatsenyuk told lawmakers. “What options do we have now?”
Yatsenyuk’s administration took charge of Ukraine in February after pro-European street protests prompted Kremlin-backed President Viktor Yanukovych to flee. Since then, the government has battled a pro-Russian insurgency in the east of the country, which it says is supported by the government in Moscow. Russia also annexed Ukraine’s Black Sea peninsula of Crimea in March.
“Since the corrupt Clinton regime, American journalists have been forced by their bosses to lie for Washington. It is a hopeful sign that in their confrontation with Marie Harf some journalists found a bit of courage. Let’s hope it takes root and grows.” P C Roberts
After days of placing hostile blame for the downing of the Malaysian airliner on Russia, the White House permitted US intelligence officials to tell reporters that there is no evidence of the Russian government’s involvement.
Obviously, the US satellite photos do not support the Obama regime’s lies. If the White House had any evidence of Russian complicity, it would have released it to great fanfare days ago.
We are fortunate that the analytical side of the CIA, in contrast with the black ops side, retains analysts with integrity even after the purge of the agency ordered by Dick Cheney. Incensed that the CIA did not immediately fall in line with all of the Bush regime’s war lies, Cheney had the agency purged. The black ops side of the agency is a different story. Many believe that it should be defunded and abolished as this part of the CIA operates in violation of statutory US law.
Don’t hold your breath until Washington abolishes black-ops operations or the Obama regime apologizes to the Russian government for the unfounded accusations and insinuations leveled by the White House at Russia.
Despite this admission by US intelligence officials, the propaganda ministry is already at work to undermine the admission. The intelligence officials themselves claim that Russia is, perhaps, indirectly responsible, because Russia “created the conditions” that caused Kiev to attack the separatists. Continue reading
Paul Joseph Watson joins Michael Savage to discuss the MH17 cover-up and Kiev’s failure to release air traffic control recordings.
“One can say many things about a military operation that results in more than 75 percent of the dead being civilians, many of them children, aimed at a population trapped in a tiny area with no escape. The claim that there is no intent to kill civilians but rather an intent to protect them is most assuredly not among them.” G Greenwald

Benjamin Netanyahu, yesterday, on CNN, addressing worldwide sympathy for the civilian victims of Israeli violence in Gaza:
They want to pile up as many civilian dead as they can. They use telegenically dead Palestinians for their cause. They want the more dead, the better.
Joseph Goebbels, November 16, 1941, essay in Das Reich, addressing Germany sympathy for German Jews forced to wear yellow stars:
The Jews gradually are having to depend more and more on themselves, and have recently found a new trick. They knew the good-natured German Michael in us, always ready to shed sentimental tears for the injustice done to them. One suddenly has the impression that the Berlin Jewish population consists only of little babies whose childish helplessness might move us, or else fragile old ladies. The Jews send out the pitiable. They may confuse some harmless souls for a while, but not us. We know exactly what the situation is.
Rather than lard up the point with numerous defensive caveats about what is and is not being said here (which, in any event, never impede willful media distorters in their tactics), I’ll simply note three brief points: Continue reading
“How can these reporters continue to report on one lie after another like it’s the first lie and not a fat bag overflowing with lie after lie after lie?” M Melton
WHY oh WHY is it such big news today that the White House was hiding data and knew about a huge spike in illegal immigrant families from Central America flooding the Texas-Mexico border over a year ago?
Apparently, not only did they know about it, but they even misrepresented the facts, too?
You mean…wait, you mean the government LIED?
The Daily Caller reported:
The data, which was dumped by the U.S. border patrol late Friday afternoon, shows that inflow of youths and children traveling without parents has doubled since 2013, to 57,525 in the nine months up to July 2014.
But the number of migrants who cross the border in so-called “family units” has spiked five-fold to 55,420, according to the border patrol’s data, which came out amid a storm of news about the shoot-down of a Malaysian aircraft in Ukraine…
In the Rio Grande area where most of the migrants are crossing the border, the number of so-called “unaccompanied children” was actually outnumbered by the inflow by adults, parents and children in “family units,” according to the data.
Well it certainly is a much different picture than the one the White House and many Congress people and Senators have tried to paint in the media recently, isn’t it?
YES. It is. Why?
Because THE GOVERNMENT LIES.
The United Nations Security Council unanimously approved a resolution, introduced by Australia, demanding international access to the eastern Ukraine crash site of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17. RT’s Marina Portnaya has more.
“The reason that the US Constitution requires war to begin with a declaration of war by Congress is to prevent the executive branch from orchestrating wars in order to further hidden agendas. By abdicating its constitutional responsibility, the US Congress is complicit in the executive branch’s war crimes. By approving Israel’s premeditated murder of Palestinians, the US government is complicit in Israel’s war crimes.” P C Roberts
How American propaganda works
Why hasn’t Washington joined Russian President Putin in calling for an objective, non-politicized international investigation by experts of the case of the Malaysian jetliner?
The Russian government continues to release facts, including satellite photos showing the presence of Ukrainian Buk anti-aircraft missiles in locations from which the airliner could have been brought down by the missile system and documentation that a Ukrainian SU-25 fighter jet rapidly approached the Malaysian airliner prior to its downing. The head of the Operations Directorate of Russian military headquarters said at a Moscow press conference today (July 21) that the presence of the Ukrainian military jet is confirmed by the Rostov monitoring center.
The Russian Defense Ministry pointed out that at the moment of destruction of MH-17 an American satellite was flying over the area. The Russian government urges Washington to make available the photos and data captured by the satellite.
President Putin has repeatedly stressed that the investigation of MH-17 requires “a fully representative group of experts to be working at the site under the guidance of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).” Putin’s call for an independent expert examination by ICAO does not sound like a person with anything to hide.
Turning to Washington Putin stated: “In the meantime, no one [not even the “exceptional nation”] has the right to use this tragedy to achieve their narrowly selfish political goals.”
Putin reminded Washington: “We repeatedly called upon all conflicting sides to stop the bloodshed immediately and to sit down at the negotiating table. I can say with confidence that if military operations were not resumed [by Kiev] on June 28 in eastern Ukraine, this tragedy wouldn’t have happened.”
What is the American response?
Lies and insinuations. Continue reading
Reasons Amnesty is a Very Bad Idea
The subject of what to do with millions of aliens illegally in the United States is getting a lot of attention. Congress, as would be expected, proposes a solution: amnesty. And again as one should expect, it is precisely the wrong solution, done badly.
The members of NAFBPO have extensive experience with illegal aliens and with amnesty in 1986. What you’ll see below are the reasons that we know amnesty is the worst possible solution for Americans.
There Will Be No Background Checks
The proponents of the current amnesty bill claim that bad guys will be weeded out with criminal background checks. While the bill does call for background checks the fact is this: they won’t happen and tens (even hundreds) of thousands of criminal applicants will be approved for legal residence because of the failure. Who will take all those fingerprints and how will they be submitted? Continue reading
““I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.” Hey, no conspiracy here. Just peacemaking. And it’s not just a war of words, but of power derived from massive financial control.” Z Gardner
These so-called peace proposals are just the same old tactic of these psychopathic rulers. Keep the talking going while the genocide continues, all while any claimed “aggression” by those they’re slaughtering justifies anything they want to perpetrate on the target population.
This recent “truce” proposal supposedly proposed by an Arab neighbor was clearly a sham from the get go, and even the terms “truce” or “ceasefire” imply the Palestinians are the aggressors and are some kind of equally powerful standing army of heavily armed crazed militants terrorizing the “innocent, peace seeking” Israeli population. A bald faced, fabricated lie.
Meanwhile, 40,000 Israeli troops are amassing on imprisoned Gaza’s border and are warning Gazans to get out or be killed. Time to gin some more PR propaganda and political smokescreening.
How US and Blair Plotted “Ceasefire” Scam
We now have confirmation from the Israeli daily Haaretz of what we should have suspected: that the idea for the so-called Egyptian “ceasefire proposal” was actually hatched in Washington, the messenger boy was arch-war criminal Tony Blair, and the terms were drafted by Israel.
The intention was either to corner Hamas into surrendering – and thereby keep the savage blockade of Gaza in place – or force Hamas to reject the proposal and confirm the Israeli narrative that it is a terrorist organisation with which Israel cannot make peace.
