The Extraordinary Political Bias and Corruption Scandal at Wikipedia

Wikipedia accused of corruption

Editor comments:

Because I thought that a user updated #encyclopedia like #Wikipedia was a great idea, I financially supported the Wikipedia organisation with a small monthly contribution.

That is, until I became suspicious of the (political) bias that was becoming more and more evident especially on those pages detailing currently controversial material. That was it. No more Wikipedia for me and no more donations. I am sure #George_Soros will be happy to pick up the slack.

It wasn’t long before I started seeing posts by others confirming my suspicions about a Wikipedia agenda to manipulate the data on their web site to suit their political bias.

Wikipedia can no longer be trusted to tell the truth. Students should NOT quote Wikipedia articles as references in their essays.

The article below puts it all concisely in a nutshell. How disappointing that such a good idea was, in the end, manipulated to become a tool to further a political agenda.

The Extraordinary Political Bias and Corruption Scandal at Wikipedia

Wikipedia has been caught in a massive information fiddling operation by Craig Murray, one of Britain’s most respected journalists. It’s a very big deal, and it’s going to get a lot bigger.

Russia Insider is also the victim of endless manipulation of their Wikipedia page at the hands of ‘#globalists’.

by Eric Zuesse

The latest report about Wikipedia’s corruption comes from the great investigative journalist #Craig_Murray, who had been in the UK’s Foreign Service from 1984-2004 and who was forced out in 2004 because, having been since 2002 UK’s Ambassador to Uzbekistan, he decided to whistle-blow instead of to accept the corruption by his own and Uzbekistan’s Governments.

Israeli Bombs Are Raining down on Gaza and No One Is Talking About It

Israeli Bombs Are Raining down on Gaza and No One Is Talking About It

Altnews editor’s comment: The biggest and most unfathomable mystery to me is how otherwise apparently decent people and their politicians and governments completely turn a blind eye to what, to me, appear to be the most despicable crimes against humanity ever committed by a (self proclaimed) democracy.

Traditionally this sort of stuff is done by authoritarian rulers and dictators. Nazi Germany comes to mind, Pol Pot with his Khmer Rouge, Stalin with his Bolsheviks, Mao Tse-tung and his Cultural Revolution. We could go on but you get the drift. All vicious dictators and criminals.

Then we have this hallowed democratic state created in 1948 by the British on stolen Palestinian land, as some sort of compensation for the ‘good’ deeds supposedly performed by a shadowy and secretive group called Zionists, or so the Balfour Declaration proclaims anyhow. Since then we have witnessed dictator after dictator masquerading as democratically elected leaders waging genocidal war on a genetically Semitic people, the Palestinians, the original inhabitants of their occupied lands.

How can it be that the rest of the so called civilised world continues to condone and even support this despicable and inhumane behaviour? How can it be that no western leader speaks out against the continuing violence? They must be under some Satanic spell. Surely?

Israeli Bombs Are Raining down on Gaza and No One Is Talking About It

#Gaza does not have an air force, does not have air defenses of its own, and in essence represents 2 million #Palestinians trapped in what is widely regarded as an open-air prison, which is predicted to become uninhabitable in less than two years.

THE GAZA STRIP — (Analysis) With close to zero media coverage, particularly any analysis that is critical of the Israeli government and its policies, Israel has continued to pound the Gaza Strip with air strikes since the beginning of this year.

In a separate reportMintPress News has documented the various human-rights abuses that Israel has unleashed on the Palestinian people in recent times, particularly in the Gaza Strip. But one would be hard pressed to find any serious media coverage of the fact that, despite the overwhelmingly harsh conditions that Israel has inflicted on the Gaza Strip, it still routinely delivers sophisticated bombs to maximize the suffering.

The United States is not a passive player in this particular conflict, which shows no signs of de-conflicting in the near future. According to #Human_Rights_Watch, the U.S. taxpayer paid to Israel $3.1 billion in military aid in 2017 alone.

Socialism, Privacy And Charity For The Powerful. Capitalism, Surveillance And Rugged Individualism For The Powerless.

Altnews editor’s comment: Our favourite rogue journalist contributor, Caitlin Johnstone, masterfully describes the status quo of the rule by the plutocracy we are all subject to today but fails to call the spade a spade.

So it is up to us to follow the (all that) money trail to try and determine who the architects of this trend and ambition to achieve absolute world power may be.

Unsurprisingly to some, at the top of this obscene pile of money we find some well known albeit secretive individuals and families who cleverly manage to stay out of the limelight time and time again but their wealth and their power is immense.

In fear of being branded a conspiracy theorist by the (some very well paid) detractors, we are not going to name names here suffice to say that unsurprisingly these same individuals and families are also the driving forces behind the oft hinted at New World Order (#NWO), who also lobbied for and financed the #UN and who, unsurprisingly, also own and control the wealthiest and most powerful multinational corporations such as the #MilitaryIndustrialComplex, #BigMedia, #BigBanks, #BigPharma, #BigChem, #BigAg and #BigFood. Their tentacles reach into the deepest recesses of our world and seem to have just about everyone in a stranglehold.

But let’s see what colour Caitlin has to add:

John Pilger : “We Are Headed For War”

Assange & Skripal Case Part of Propaganda War That Risks Real One – John Pilger

Altnews editor’s comment:  The most disturbing and frightening aspect of the enfolding propaganda war is that governments of supposedly independent and sovereign nations all seem to be acting in unison on supposedly inflammatory events for which no real, factual and verifiable  evidence has been provided. Are the US, UK, DE, NL and AU governments (among others) all truly the real puppets they appear to be? Dancing to the tune of an almighty puppet-master and incapable of independent and critical assessment of the events?

Watch

March 30, 2018 “Information Clearing House” –  The #Skripal saga and Ecuador’s move to cut #Julian_Assange’s internet is part of a wider crackdown on freedom of speech and states like #Russia which have stood up to the West. It risks evolving into a real war, John Pilger told RT.

“This is about a war on #freedom_of_speech; this man is being denied the most basic right – freedom of speech. It’s part of a wider war. The wider war is against known enemies, and Russia is one of them, #China is another,” investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker John Pilger said.

Paul Craig Roberts: Integrity Has Vanished From The West

Altnews editor’s comment: Western #Sheeple are being herded towards an unwinnable and fatal #Nuclear_War at breakneck speed like shite scared lemmings heading towards a cliff over the abyss. The point of no return seems just around the next corner. Are you just another brainless sheeple or lemming or do you join us and stand firmly against this cleverly imposed collective insanity gripping the West? Share this post!

“Orchestrations this blatant demonstrate that Western governments have no respect for the intelligence of their peoples. That Western governments get away with these fantastic lies indicates that the governments are immune to accountability.”

By Paul Craig Roberts

Among Western political leaders there is not an ounce of integrity or morality. The Western print and TV media is dishonest and corrupt beyond repair. Yet the Russian government persists in its fantasy of “working with Russia’s Western partners.” The only way Russia can work with crooks is to become a crook. Is that what the Russian government wants?

The G20 Itching to go to War with Russia
The G20 Itching to go to War with Russia

Finian Cunningham notes the absurdity in the political and media uproar over #Trump (belatedly) telephoning #Putin to congratulate him on his reelection with 77 percent of the vote, a show of public approval that no Western political leader could possibly attain. The crazed US senator from Arizona called the person with the largest majority vote of our time “a dictator.” Yet a real blood-soaked dictator from Saudi Arabia is feted at the White House and fawned over by the president of the United States.

How To Get Rid Of Paranoid Conspiracy Theorists

By Caitlin Johnstone, Rogue journalist. Bogan socialist. Anarcho-psychonaut. Guerilla poet. Utopia prepper

those tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy nutters
those tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy nutters

Are you as sick and tired as I am of all those tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy nutters who express skepticism whenever the kind and beneficent US intelligence agencies bestow us with urgent information about a new country in need of regime change? Do you want to get rid of that kooky fringe 74 percent of Americans who believe in a “Deep State” which controls the elected government?

Well you’re in luck, bucko! I happen to have compiled right here a list of six simple steps that our compassionate government and fearless media can take to rid America of these looney toon paranoid conspiracy theorists once and for all:

1. Stop fucking lying all the time.

Simple, right? Just stop lying and people will stop wondering how the narrative they’re being spoon fed by their politicians and the media differs from reality!

End the practice of defense and intelligence agencies collaborating with think tanks and unelected insiders to manufacture false narratives which are then promulgated by pundits and politicians of both mainstream parties to advance imperialist agendas. What will Alex Jones and Sputnik talk about if the voices of power start telling the truth all of a sudden instead of lying about the justifications for imperialist wars, excluding and censoring skeptics of establishment orthodoxies from the mainstream conversation, and being forthright about the massive and ubiquitous problems in America’s democratic system?

That’ll show those crackpots!

Globalists weaponize the stock market to control presidents

Anatomy of a fake reality

by Jon Rappoport

March 4, 2018

The economy is on the rise. No, it’s sinking. There are very good indicators. No, all the signals are catastrophic.

We’ve seen pundits on television hawking their version of the near future. Many of them represent organizations who have political and financial agendas.

For example, Globalist forces and their mouthpieces would have you believe that laying tariffs on imports will sink the stock market.

However, since the stock market is a rigged game for insiders, here is a proper translation of the above paragraph: “If tariffs are laid on, Globalist insiders will MAKE the stock market sink, and characterize that as a natural consequence of the new tariffs.”

In turn, then, a diving stock market will be PROMOTED (by the Globalist press) as a sign that the overall economy is in big trouble.

Trump surrounded himself with Goldman Sachs people because they could give him a rising stock market.

This is not an ironclad agreement. If Goldman decides Trump’s policies are wandering off-track, they can bail on him and send the stock market down.

This is how the economic game is played.

The return of some corporations from overseas, to set up factories in the US again? Fine. No problem. But Trump’s statement, several days ago, that he would lay a 25% tariff on imported steel and a 10% tariff on aluminum—that’s an anti-Globalist earthquake.

Globalist leaders in foreign countries are lining up to say they’ll retaliate. They’ll lay tariffs on imports from America. Bourbon, jeans, motorcycles, orange juice, rice. But is this the end of the world? No. It should be the first step in sorting out unfair and ruinous trade policies that have eaten into the US economy for decades.

The stock market is hyped as the prime indicator that passes judgment on what Trump (or any president) is doing. If it falls precipitously, that means he’s wrong and very badly wrong.

But in truth, the stock market is a separate giant Vegas casino. Investment funds’ algorithms move billions in and out of trades, minute by minute. Individual speculators bet on rises and falls. Claiming the condition of the entire US economy is reflected in the stock market is like saying the Powerball lottery reveals the financial health or sickness of the US automobile industry.

The stock market and the precious Dow are set up as a very profitable playground for insiders. That’s the beginning and the end of that story.
