Bizarre position

"Some Emerging Truths About Ukraine and the Crash of MH17" (O'Neill):
"It will be recalled that the allegations against Russia hinge on the alleged presence of a Russian missile system in the crash location on the relevant date. This allegation was actively promoted by the notorious mouthpiece of the United Kingdom security services who publishes under the nom de plume Bellingcat.
Bellingcat was a major promoter of the version of events that a Russian missile crew had crossed the border from Russia into Ukraine, and then fired its missile with the devastating consequences of destroying the aircraft and killing all its passengers and crew, and then returning across the border back into Russia.
Bellingcat published some photographs of the Russian missile system, and the western mainstream media duly reported the allegations that the photographs were of the offending missile system, without the least bit of fact checking, either with local citizens who would have witnessed the alleged movements of such a conspicuous weapon system, or any verifiable military records. It is now known that local eye witnesses were interviewed by the Dutch investigators.
Those eye witnesses referred to seeing Ukrainian fighter jets operating in the sky at the relevant time.  This directly contradicted the Ukrainian government claim that none of their fighter jets were operational on that day. Such an obvious and easily disproven lie raises questions about what else the Ukrainians may be lying about.
As might be expected, the Dutch Military Intelligence Service carried out its investigation into the circumstances surrounding the crash. Their investigation produced a report that has been leaked to the van der Werff investigation team. That data shows quite clearly that at the material time the flight path of MH 17 was outside the operational range of both Ukrainian and Russian missile systems.
The report of the Dutch military investigation team (MIVD) quoted by van der Werff confirms that there were no Russian BUK missiles or radar systems in Ukraine on or about 17 July 2014.  The Dutch report further confirmed that no BUK missiles were detected as having been fired on that day.  Nor had anything been fired from the Russian side of the border.
This information was consistent with data obtained by two Australian investigators, Shaun Ellis and Timothy Johns, conducting an inquiry under the code name “Operation Arkanella”. None of these findings, which clearly contradict the allegations of Russian responsibility, have ever been published in the western mainstream media.  It raises the obvious question of why the lie of Russian complicity in the tragedy has been raised and maintained ever since, when it is clearly contradicted by the evidence the Dutch-Australian investigations discovered.
The known Russian missile systems were in proximity to substantial population centres. There were no reports in any format of any missiles being fired on the relevant day. This conclusion is clearly reported in the official report of the Dutch Military Intelligence and Security Service. Their report clearly states: “it becomes apparent that flight MH 17 was flying beyond the range of all identified and operational Ukrainian and Russian locations where 9K37m1Buk M1 Systems were deployed.” Again, it raises the obvious question: how is this information reconciled with the propaganda attack on Russia, then and ever since?
This report was published on 21 September 2016, i.e. more than three years ago. Not a word of it has been published by the western media who persist in their “blame Russia” version despite having no verifiable evidence let alone motive, to sustain such an allegation.
If we are able to exclude a missile as the cause of MH 17’s demise, that inevitably leaves only either an accident (which may be emphatically excluded) or intervention by fighter aircraft. Even the Ukrainians and their Western allies have never alleged that a Russian fighter jet was involved.
Rather, the Ukrainian government has always maintained that none of its military aircraft were flying at the time. This claim has long been disputed by civilians living in the area who have given repeated accounts of the activity of Ukrainian fighter jets in the area at the relevant time.
The area where the shooting down of MH17 occurred was an active war zone. It is known that both United States and Russian satellites were in stationary orbit over the region at the relevant time.  It raises the obvious question as to why these data have not been released.  One can understand the US reluctance as the data would disclose the complicity of their ally Ukraine in the tragedy. It is less clear why the Russian authorities have not released their data. The evidence after all is in their favour.
What the satellite data would show is exactly what was established by the Dutch and Australian investigators at the time.  That is, MH17 was shot down by Ukrainian fighter jets.
Van der Werff’s report includes the transcript of an interview with one such keywitness,a Brigadier of the Dutch Police. That witness gave detailed evidence as to the activities of Ukrainian fighter jets in the area at the relevant time on the day of the tragedy. Again, this clearly refutes the Ukrainian claims.
When one adds together the known facts revealed in the Dutch documents as well as other sources, certain irresistible inferences can be drawn. The most obvious is that MH 17 was shot down by a Ukrainian fighter jet. That single fact, from which so much else followed, has never been reported in the mainstream media despite it being the irresistible inference drawn by Dutch investigators more than three years ago.
That the suppression of the truth has been a major factor in the anti-Russian campaign waged by the Netherlands, Australia and Ukraine is obvious. That the lies, obfuscations and misinformation should be perpetrated by the mainstream media is a sad commentary on the deplorable state of affairs that media has now sunk to."
"Syria - Another Short Note On The Recent Developments" (Moon).  These days everybody inevitably ends up, hat in hand, in Moscow.  I can see Putin rolling his eyes while Erdoğan pleads to be allowed to set up a terrorist state in northern Syria, the exact thing that Russia has spent so much time, effort, and rubles trying to prevent, regarding such a thing as literally an existential threat to Russia.

"Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Ansarullah is the front line, not China-Russia" (Shaller):
"I think that it is completely wrong to criticize Russia or China for these positions. They are not the masters of an alternative world. They cannot dictate a political agenda. They have neither the strength nor the intention of doing so. No country should expect that its problems will be solved by China and/or Russia. It is also wrong to see Putin as the one big infallible chess player who holds the reins. As leader of his country he has his point of view just as the leaders of the other players have their point of view. Nobody is in the possession of the absolute truth. However, the history of Russia and China shows that these countries are loyal to her allies and do not exchange them like clothes. As permanent members of the Security Council they will defend the interests of Syria. But they will continue to have as good as possible relations with USA, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey."
"Syria - Corona - AIPAC" (Shamir).  Shamir is always interesting - Erdoğan is a "great man", and ". . . racists believe that Jews are some bio-robots, always fitting the Jewish agenda. The reality is different."  That's not my reading of the facts.

"Draining the Intelligence Community Swamp" (Giraldi).  'Draining the swamp' as a way to fix the most important problem facing America today, insufficient Wars For The Jews, by further increasing the percentage of Khazars and shabbos goyim planning wars, and developing the 'intelligence' required for the PR preparation of the stupid farm animals.  What could possibly go wrong?  The MEGA Group sure has Trump by the short and curlies.  Lots of ((())), including a position the existence of which is really worth pondering:  "Elan Carr fills the bizarre position of Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism . . . ."

"CBS Promotes Anti-Semitic Canard That Pedophile Jews Flee to Israel" (Anglin).

"‘If a Charge Can’t Stick on These Guys, No Charges Can Stick on Anyone.’" (Celarier).

And yes, incredible as it may seem, the ((('donors'))) managed to further debase the WSWS by getting them to go there (a huge stretch, btw) (see also):  "New York Times posts anti-Semitic caricature of Harvey Weinstein" (North/Damon).  Serious question - is the plan to completely destroy any and all credibility socialism might have?

People have different way of coping with justified shame:  "Lisa Page Simmers After CPAC 'Lovebirds' Skit Mocks Infidelity, Bias" (Durden).

"Google's Creepy Line Exposed" (M G). I find Chrome completely unusable - worse, even, than Microsoft Edge, the usual gold standard of browser incompetence, which is still useful as some websites seem to only function properly on Edge - and I wonder if it is all the spying that wrecks it.

Slight indications that the King has come to the realization that MBS is an idiot:  "Saudi Arabia And Its Future" (Mikhin).

Tweet (Oren Cass) (the entire structure of economics, including every measurement which is deemed important, is just a PR mechanism to promote the interests of the 1%):
"Thread (1/16). How is that our economic statistics suggest workers have been making slow but steady progress in recent decades, while popular perception is that their family finances are coming under increasingly untenable pressure? I've been working on this, here's my answer:"
Ha ha ha ha ha: "Chrystia Freeland should have remained Minister of Foreign Affairs" (Kolga) ("Marcus Kolga is a strategic digital communications strategist, human rights activist and expert on foreign disinformation. He is a senior fellow at the Macdonald-Laurier Institute’s Centre of Advancing Canadian Interests Abroad.").  Note the Browder advice!  Note also - she's still running external affairs.
