Propaganda Alert! Economist Magazine Wants ISIS Spared in Mosul, To Attack Syria

Propaganda Alert! Economist Magazine Wants ISIS Spared in Mosul, To Attack Syria

When I was a student, the Economist was the magazine of choice for teenage college debaters. Nowadays, it appears to be a magazine written by teenage college debaters.

So, it seems The Economist has a new plan for the Middle East. In a strange bit of positioning, it doesn’t want Iraqi forces to rout ISIS in the ongoing battle for Mosul. That’s because the headbangers – and enthusiastic head-choppers to boot – could be useful for another purpose on the journal’s agenda; taking over Syria and removing the ‘evil’ Bashar al-Assad from office in Damascus.

That’s right, you’ve heard it all now. The British news weekly, beloved of folk unable to form their own opinions, has entered an unholy alliance with ISIS. And water coolers everywhere will provide a focal point for middle managers expounding on the thesis this very working day. If unfortunate enough to be in proximity, you’ll hear them contend how “the wisest strategy for retaking Mosul is to leave IS (sic) an exit, eastward to Syria.” Because this is what the Economist told them to believe.

Foreign Policy magazine fear-mongering: America’s ‘neo-McCarthyism’ a worrying trend with ‘liberals’

Foreign Policy magazine fear-mongering: America’s ‘neo-McCarthyism’ a worrying trend with ‘liberals’

There is a worrying trend among America’s so-called “liberals” sweeping the country. Any computer security breach and voting irregularity is being blamed by a number of liberals who count themselves as supporters of Hillary Clinton, one-time supporters of Bernie Sanders, or neo-conservatives who abandoned the Republican Party for Clinton as being the fault of Vladimir Putin and Russia. Such fear-mongering is reminiscent of the right-wing’s “Red Scare” tactics of the late 1940s and 50s and the supporters of Wisconsin’s junior senator, the Red-baiting Joseph McCarthy.

Today, McCarthy has been replaced by such Russophobes as Hillary Clinton, Tim Kaine, Dianne Feinstein, Representative Adam Schiff of California, and House Speaker Paul Ryan. Propaganda material for these self-serving politicians to carry on about secret Russian plans to alter the outcome of the election is provided by FBI director James Comey, who sees an excellent opportunity to increase the bureau’s counter-intelligence and cyber operations budgets.
