I must protest at the dishonestly and openly propagandistic nature of an October 30, 2022, Associated Press article on Bucha and alleged Russian massacres (click here). I am not denying war crimes have been committed, on both sides. I am denying there is proof of them being ordered by the Russian high command and that there were crimes to the extent alleged, especially in Bucha.  This article by AP lies through omission and implying things that may not be so.  Hear-say is not fact?

by Socrates George Kazolias: It is hard to find the truth about what is happening in Ukraine. Neither side can be trusted and the censorship, especially in Europe, and online, is a major handicap. But if you look hard enough, and study past experience, you can fit pieces together.

Houston, April 11, 2022. This is a response to a dear and sincere friend who believes Twitter, being a private company, has the right to censor whoever it wants based on its own rules; rules which you are “forced” to agree to when you sign up. It is a follow-up to a debate we have been having since I quit Twitter after they banned me for a second time.

The first time based on the simple denunciation by someone who didn’t like what I wrote (although it was factual), and the second time because of a tongue-in-cheek comment which algorithms and bots don’t understand but people do.

Tübingen, Germany, January 6, 2022 by Kazolias.com:

Online platforms (Twitter, Facebook, & al.) with monopolies over the public arena are imposing censorship based on algorithms; machines are deciding what people can and cannot say. This must end!

When the US State Department fired me it turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

In early 2019, State informed me that they would no longer use my services as a trainer, speaker and teacher of Communications and Journalism in Francophone and Anglophone Africa because of criticism and slurs I had published on John Bolton and Donald Trump.

I was devastated. For 25 years, I had promoted the concepts I believed made America great and I did my best to shine a light on that beautiful citadel on the hill. The loss in extra revenue has also made my life much more difficult.

Lèse majesté, the King of Communications Control

The French government is proposing two new laws to ban ‘Fake News’ from the web during elections and journalists and the opposition are in an uproar.  Those opposed to the laws say there is already legislation to protect candidates during campaigns and against libel. Those in the ruling En March Party, under fire from all sides, tried to clarify their position by making a distinction between ‘Fake News’ and ‘Fake Information.’

If a large section of the public has been convinced by people who spin the web of fiction that those in charge of laying bare the truth are really liars producing Fake News, it is because reporters allowed the spin-doctors direct access to citizens.  The Gate Keepers stopped keeping the gate nearly 30 years ago. This worked well when those in power pretended to play by the rules but Team-Trump have thrown the rule book out the window.

Embarrassing truths made public lost Clinton the elections.

The Russian Hacking Scandal is an attack on whistleblowers and the public’s right to know.

 

The Democrat Party and the Barack Obama administration are using the alleged Russian hacking narrative to attack ‘Whistle Blowers’ and the truth. In an Orwellian turn of logic, they have people believing the US elections were somehow hacked; that people did not vote the way they did because they wanted to when in reality, it is the Democrat Party and Hilary Clinton who were hacked. What they refuse to admit is that a lot of truth was laid out for public scrutiny and that, had this truth been hidden from the public, Clinton would be president.

The first casualty of war is the truth.”

imagesReporting on Syria in the Western media is as close to fake news as propaganda can get. It is the most one-sided and on-side messaging we have seen since NATO intervened in Libya to put  Sunni extremists and al Qaeda sympathizers in power.

First, the rebels in Aleppo are al Qaeda’s Jabhat al Nusra Front forced by the US to change their name last Summer to Jabhat Fatah al-Sham. These are Sunni extremists who slit throats on camera, kill minorities, especially Christians and Shiites, throw civil servants off the roves of five-story buildings (people like postal workers and clerks), send suicide bombers into markets and so on. (see 2013 BBC report) These are the people the United States, Saudi Arabia and Turkey have been financing, arming, training and now the loyal western press crying over.
