Video Timeline for January 2015, [both sides] Uncut.

Via Ruptly a division of Russia Today.

Lot of westerners accuse Russia Today, of being a propaganda arm of the Russian government. Maybe so, but certainly no more than the Washington Post, and/or the New York Times, CNN, FoxNews are for the U.S. Administration.

Personally I think they are less so, as this example shows - a video presented in chronological format, showing both sides of the conflict and letting the viewer decide his/her point of view.

Quite frankly, after following this conflict since the beginning, (reading various sources both pro and con) a view has emerged, that any thinking, rational person can't avoid concluding, in my opinion.

That is, that the U.S. and NATO, (which is controlled by the U.S. of course) facilitated a coup in the Ukraine. Regardless of what we think of the corruption etc., of that regime, it still had been elected by the Ukrainian people.

I'm not naive to think that Russia isn't involved, either. Of course they are - but hell, this is on its border, and affects a Russian speaking minority in Eastern Ukraine.
So, yes they have a vested interest in the outcome of all this - The same one would expect Washington to have, if, a foreign power placed nuclear missiles in Cuba and/or Mexico. Wait .... one of those already happened - and what was the United States response?! Hell, we almost had a nuclear war - read some memoirs of the players involved. At the time we didn't know how close President Kennedy had caused all out armageddon.

So, the great "Land of the Free" seems to only follow the letter of international law, when it suits their interests. I cannot see how anyone can blame Russia for acting, (which I think has been somewhat subdued, in relation to what the U.S did in the Cuban Missile Crisis, years ago) the way it has, with NATO encroaching it's borders in a threatening manner?

Come on folks, please, think for yourselves!
Most of our institutionalized western media, isn't serving our interests. Therefore I present this video from RT/Ruptly. Approx 40 minutes in length, with english subtitles - turn them on via YouTube automatic caption preferences.

Christopher Hitchens: Answers Why He Preached Against the Theocracy Belief System

Brilliant! Mr. Hitchens just gave voice to what I sincerely believe, but couldn't verbalize.

I was raised in one of those Plymouth Brethren Christian homes, where belief in the End of Times, especially the book of Revelations in the Bible was preached daily. One can't be saved by good deeds, but by being a Born Again Christian for the coming Rapture and End of Times.


As far as I'm concerned, that belief system is no different than the WahabiMuslim belief system. They both can go to hell! Evil is right!

EFF is Suing to Get List of Best Buy's Geek Squad Informants

A Best Buy Geek Squad Volkswagen New Beetle. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) I had previously covered this here in a post earlier this past January. Now the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has announced that they are suing the FBI for the list of informants they used at Geek Squad.
The EFF also posted to their members blog the reasons why they wish to uncover these informants.

The reasoning from EFF's post:

"Sending your computer to Best Buy for repairs shouldn’t require you to surrender your Fourth Amendment rights. But that’s apparently what’s been happening when customers send their computers to a Geek Squad repair facility in Kentucky.

We think the FBI’s use of Best Buy Geek Squad employees to search people’s computers without a warrant threatens to circumvent people’s constitutional rights. That’s why we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit today against the FBI seeking records about the extent to which it directs and trains Best Buy employees to conduct warr…
