Liars Lying About Nearly Everything

Consortium News has the article Liars Lying About Nearly Everything.

As the latest British account of the location of the alleged poison places it on the door handle of the Skripals’ residence, the timetable element is also unconvincing. That means that the two would have spent three hours, including a stop at a pub and lunch, before succumbing on a park bench. Military grade nerve agents kill instantly and this one is said to be 8 times more powerful than VX.

There is even more damaging information in the article than this excerpt I have chosen here.

I hadn’t even read this article when I published my previous post Skripals poisoned from front door of Salisbury home, police say. I hadn’t even thought about the above issue when I made that post.


‘Assad had no reason to launch chem attack, unlike those who want US involvement’ – Ron Paul

YouTube has the video ‘Assad had no reason to launch chem attack, unlike those who want US involvement’ – Ron Paul.

Washington and the US media seem to have no doubts about the Syrian government’s complicity in the Douma incident despite the fact that those who want America to stay in Syria have far more solid motives, Ron Paul told RT.


There isn’t much that Ron Paul and I can agree on, but this is one area where we do agree. Notice that even Ed Schultz buys into the idea that an actual gas attack occurred. I am beginning to wonder if he isn’t too naive.


“There Wasn’t A Single Corpse”: Russia Claims ‘White Helmets’ Staged Syria Chemical Attack

Zero Hedge has the article “There Wasn’t A Single Corpse”: Russia Claims ‘White Helmets’ Staged Syria Chemical Attack.

Russia claims that the reported chemical attack in Syria last Sunday was staged by the “white helmets,” a US-funded NGO lauded by mainstream media for their humanitarian work, while long-suspected of performing less-than humanitarian deeds behind the curtain.

The article includes this video.


Notice how the interviewer assumes on faith that the videos he has been shown are true, even when CBS News admits they cannot verify them.

This is the first mention of “White Helmets” that I have seen. If the corporate media had mentioned “White Helmets” in the beginning then I would have been positively sure it was a false flag operation. That is probably why the corporate media tried to keep “white helmets” out of their reports. Maybe the corporate media isn’t just naively accepting the deep state’s take on this issue. Maybe they are very consciously and purposely lying.


Exclusive: Russia doesn’t have firepower to retaliate against Trump, says ex-Putin aide

Yahoo has the article Exclusive: Russia doesn’t have firepower to retaliate against Trump, says ex-Putin aide.

Russia doesn’t have the financial capability to retaliate to a military intervention in Syria by the US.

That’s according to a former senior aide to Vladimir Putin, who has told Yahoo Finance UK that threats from Moscow of a ‘backlash’ against the US are completely unfounded.

Given “Greenberg’s Law of Idle Threats

Never make a threat you don’t intend to carry out. If you have any doubts about your ability to carry out the threat, do not make it.

Corollary:

If you never test the opposition about whether they make idle threats, then you enable them to ignore this law.

My worst fear is that either Russia’s threat is an idle one, or Trump thinks it is, and will apply my corollary.

Perhaps China is intending to add to Russia’s threat credibility. This is how I interpret Pravda’s news story China supports Russia in diplomatic war against the West.

One can also imagine a Russian retaliation that is not too financially expensive for Russia to carry out without China’s help.

I forgot to put in the link to the CNN article Chinese defense chief says his trip to Russia is a signal to the US.

The US should take notice of China and Russia’s increasingly close military ties, a top Chinese official said Tuesday.


Skripals poisoned from front door of Salisbury home, police say

The Guardian has the article Skripals poisoned from front door of Salisbury home, police say .

Detectives investigating the attempted murders of Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia Skripal have said they believe the pair were poisoned with a nerve agent at the front door of his Salisbury home.

Specialists investigating the poisoning of the the Skripals have found the highest concentration of the nerve agent on the front door at the address, police said.

If you were a reporter/editor with the most meager qualifications for your job, this story would raise a lot of questions that you would pose in this incredulous article.

How would the would be assassin know that the Skirpal’s would be using their front door? As an owner of a home with an attached garage, I seldom use the front door because I usually enter and exit my house through the garage.

How could the would be assassin know that there wouldn’t be many others dropping dead from the poison? Do they not have door-to-door sales people, religious proselytizers, mail and package deliverers, newspaper deliverers, nor household staff in England? Any of these people would have been similarly poisoned and dropping like flies.

Do the British authorities think their story is so credible, that nobody is going to scoff at this naive explanation?
