Facebook should be investigated for its role in the illegal Kiev coup of 2014

While Facebook’s leadership insults Russia, the real story of Facebook’s use as a political weapon occurred during the illegal Ukrainian coup of 2014.

One of the great problems surrounding Facebook is that the wider public, the political elite and Facebook’s own corporate regime, do not know whether Facebook is a telecommunications tool or an ideological private sector platform, albeit one with close connections to the public sector.

In a just world, Facebook would be run and regulated like a telecom organisation, a mere technical conduit which connects individuals, no different than the phone companies of the 1950s.

However, as it stands, Facebook promotes various political agendas, censors and exploits those whom it disagrees with and now, Facebook’s co-founder Mark Zuckerberg has stated that he is personally invested in investigating how “Russia” used Facebook to “meddle in the US Presidential election”.

While Facebook’s ideologically driven fanatical founder seeks to insult the people of Russia and threaten the dignity of the Russian Federation, the real story is not about Russia, but about Facebook itself.

If Facebook really is to be regulated like an ideological platform rather than a telecom company, such things cuts both ways.

This is why Facebook should be prosecuted for helping to foment the illegal, blood-soaked 2014 coup d’état in Kiev, a coup which has brought an outlaw fascist regime to power whose mafioso leadership continues to wage a war of ethnic cleansing against the people of Donbass.

During the Winter of 2014, multiple Facebook ‘groups’ were set up by the bandits and criminals who came to the Maidan in Kiev in order to foment violence against police offices, civilians, politicians and property.

Additionally, many so-called NGOs, including those funded by George Soros paid Facebook to promote various propaganda videos in favour of overthrowing the legitimate President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych.

In Andrei Soldatov and Irina Borogan’s “The Red Web”, Facebook’s vital role in helping to coordinate and orchestrate the Maidan coup is well documented. While the authors apparently grasp little of the political implications, their writing is instructive from the perspective of understanding just how wide and deep Facebook’s roll was in helping various groups of scoundrals to orchestrate coordinated assaults on police that involved the use of weapons, heavy machinery and the provision of gas masks which were delivered to hooligans in an orderly fashion.

It is thought that the US State Department which was caught financing the bandits on Maidan played a large role in disseminating multi-lingual including English language propaganda to various groups and pages on Facebook.

If Facebook was just a telecom company, none of this would matter. When criminals use a telephone to coordinate a bank robbery, no one faults AT & T, or whomever the phone company might be. But if Facebook seeks to ‘investigate’ whether or not Russians placed advertisements relating to the US election on Facebook, something which in and of itself is a peaceful exercise of free speech, then it becomes necessary to investigate Facebook’s use by individuals, NGOs and governments in the fomenting of an illegal coup in Ukraine.

If Facebook thinks it can play God, simply because of its high level of market proliferation, it should think again. No one is above the law. Facebook must be taken to task for helping to bring a regime of genocidal fascists to power, a regime whose killings have not paused since 2014 and continue to this day.

I remember a video, ‘I’m a Ukrainian’, spread widely on Facebook, purporting to be an individual’s grassroots plea for the overthrow of the Yanukovich government. It emerged that it was produced in US by a Soros group.

Facebook is disgusting, vile propaganda. I’ve been banned for 30 days TWICE. Once for stating the Christian view on the aggressive promotion of homosexuality to minors. And once for stating UK govt stats on the incidents of sexual assault by male homosexuals vs heteroseuxals. I also got a ban for saying that calling false allegations of racism as “deranged”. And a ban for saying the US meddled in Italian justice to get murderer Amanda Knox freed. Finally Zuckerberg promised Angela Merkel he would look to censor posts about Muslim immigrants sexually assaulting white women. The site is clearly run by… Read more »

It was not just Facebook. It was the BBC and all mainstream channels and media outlets, before the coup we could not get Maidan off our screens. Afterwards, when Poroshenko waged war on his own people, the news of more wanton murders of innocents than the Israelis perpetrated against Palestinians in 2014 the BBC and others remained silent. When it came to the shooting down of passenger plane MH17 a BBC reporter in Russia interviewed residents who claimed to have seen a fighter jet (or fighter jets) shadowing MH17. This report appeared on the BBC but was quickly taken down.… Read more »

The author is correct on all counts. Farcebook also got itself temporarily blocked in Turkey, and some other countries which were experiencing turmoil, if memory serves. Farcebook probably had a hand in assisting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and terrorist gangs in Syria. We will never know until a terrier is dispatched into this rabbit hole.

FB was the means to organize the Egyptian color revolution at Tahrir Square. That was in support of Muslim Brotherhood and recall, Obama was intensively involved via FB. A total CIA overthrow of the government. And then it stirred the Bahrain students who Saudis slaughtered.

FB is deeply evil.

Russia’s economy continues to outperform as gold takes center stage (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 118.

Alex Christoforou

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris examine how US and EU sanctions have continued to provide a huge boost to Russia’s economy. Russia’s food sovereignty has practically been achieved, as the Russian central bank continues to buy gold and lower its exposure to western financial markets.

Outside pressure in the form of sanctions has become an incentive to resolve various issues of Russia’s economy, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev stated in an interview with the Izvestiya daily.

He noted that through introducing sanctions against Russia, “the West aims to destabilize Russia’s economy and to create social and political tensions in society.”

“But during the difficult times, Russians have always stuck together and mobilized their resources in order to ensure the country’s sovereignty. This is what is happening now – the outside pressure has become an incentive to resolve many problems in Russia’s economy,” he said.

“Before the sanctions, it seemed that we would never be able to feed ourselves and that we are doomed to be dependent on Western import. However, right now, Russia’s food sovereignty in crucial sectors has practically been achieved, and in some areas, Russia has become the leading exporter,” Patrushev noted.

Those who apply the sanctions “can see that they (the sanctions – TASS) are ineffective and often achieve the opposite goal,” the Russian security chief concluded.

US Neocon Foreign Policy and the War Waged Against Serbia

The Serbian assault began first by a ‘financial war’; by sanctions and finished off by an aggressive unprovoked incessant NATO bombing campaign.

Richard Galustian

Published

The ‘witch-hunt’ against President Trump over Russian collusion has officially ended, following the submission of the Mueller Report, enabling us to now focus on the real problems of America that effects the whole world.

In the hope of a waining of the Russophobia in America, let’s look at the US’s recent war history by starting with the 20th anniversary this month of the NATO war on Serbia in 1999 which amounted to almost 100 days of bombing of historic cities and infrastructure.

Firstly, these problems are, in the main caused by the Neocons, or Deep State, whatever you wish to call them, and the continuing promotion, by the US Military-Security Industrial Complex, of wars and regime change and secondly, Trump’s unreserved support for Israel, regardless of war crimes they may continue to commit against the Palestinians.

Incredibly after that one sided unjust and illegal war that NATO executed, NATO has the audacity to invite Serbia to join it! Something that will never happen. What do they smoke in DC, in the Pentagon and Brussels based NATO?

To compound these overall problems, the US Military and Israeli Defence Forces collaborate on these US regime change policies on all continents evidenced most recently by the arrival of crack Israeli troops last month in Brazil, prepared to support an attack potentially by Brazil and Columbia on Venezuela.

As, has now come to be expected, America pursues its Venezuelan regime change with full main stream media (MSM) cooperation, using well proven sophisticated propaganda techniques along with a variety of pretexts.

From Serbia to Iraq to Libya, where does it end? Observe that Trump is now seeking a ‘NATO alliance’ offering NATO status, to President Bolsonaro of Brazil to back the invasion of Venezuela.

So it is important to remember, as an example, that after a long war of economic and financial destabilization ended with the bombing of Serbia.

Serbia was previously a part of Yugoslavia, a country which had successfully evolved after 1945 to solve the old rivalries of the 19th and early 20th Century Balkan ethnic animosities which was, prior to the advent of power of President Tito, its past history.

The United Nations, instead of supporting, in effect, so called ‘humanitarian wars’ and ‘regime change wars’ by the US, using NATO, helped and relentlessly driven home by MSM outlets like CNN and FOX NEWS into people’s heads, must finally take a stand.

So too, Yugoslavia, once the envy of many in the world, given its then ‘non-aligned’ status under President Tito, was destroyed and broken up; ‘Balkanized’ in the early 1990s.

The Serbian assault began first by a ‘financial war’; by sanctions and finished off by an aggressive unprovoked incessant NATO bombing campaign. That’s what we can expect in Venezuela next.

This ‘Balkanization’ strategy similarly applies to Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria et al. It serves US Neocon interests to dismember States in the world and create smaller more ‘manageable’ countries.

‘Regime change’ runs against the intent, the very words contained in the US Constitution. No one in MSM ever reminds us of that fact. Nevertheless America’s ambition to overthrow other States continues, which they arrogantly now make no secret of. The next States will probably be Nicaragua then Iran to name but two.

A very noteworthy most recent outrageous unilateral declaration was made by President Trump, not yet formally agreed by US institutions, ‘giving’ something he has no authority to give; Syrian territory, the Golan Heights to be precise, to Israel. Something that one day could trigger a full scale Arab-Israeli War.

This is of extreme importance yet no real outcry comes from world leaders; well not so far.

The main reason for that decision given by senior US Administration figures is that “God anointed Trump to save the Jews”.

Not forgetting Trump’s need (which we the people don’t understand exactly why) to support Prime Minister Netanyahu in his difficult upcoming elections in Israel – in part because both countries failed to ‘regime change’ Syria – but more importantly to help the ‘financial terrorists’ who formed a company jointly that has already started drilling for oil in the Golan Heights. You might like to know who owns such oil drilling company which should answer a plethora of questions in one go that you must be asking yourselves.

The shareholder’s names tells us everything; Dick Cheney; Baron Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch. The titular heads of neocons, bankers and media on the planet.

In ending there is no more evidence required for us, the people of the world, to rise up against the globalist dark forces wherever they exist, be it in Brussels, London, France or Washington. We must demand democratic elections or start revolutions, the latter has already begun in France in the form of ‘the yellow vests’. And Brexit, by definition, is a rejection by the British people of globalism and American Hegemony.

The pattern of US destabilization and destruction of States to loot them of their sovereign resources is the unseen history of the last 100 years, not taught in any university, anywhere in the West.

As far as Ukraine is concerned, its government was taken down by the CIA and replaced by an ultra fascist regime that has full backing from America. This is no secret. But the MSM simple don’t report it.

US led NATO is ‘the transnational war machine’ of the world, devouring almost all free countries wealth. It can extort to terrorize all into conformity to the global ‘carcinogenic’ US Neocon imperialistic strategy.

A total estimated 20m people around the world have died since the end of WW11 at the hands of US Forces. Think about that for a moment.

One of the most famous sayings attributed to America’s great President Abraham Lincoln is about deception: “You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

‘Dark day for internet freedom’: EU approves controversial copyright reform

Julia Reda, a German MEP with the Pirate Party, described it as a “dark day for internet freedom.”

The European Parliament has voted to adopt the highly controversial Article 13 provision which would govern the production and distribution of content online under the auspices of increasing copyright protections.

Tuesday’s move will update the EU’s 20-year-old copyright rules and will govern everything from audiovisual content to memes, much to the dismay of many social media users who have already begun outpouring their grief online.

MEPs passed the legislation by 348 votes to 274 Tuesday. Opponents had hoped for last-minute amendments to be made but their efforts were in vain.

Julia Reda, a German MEP with the Pirate Party, described it as a “dark day for internet freedom.”

Article 13 or ‘The Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market’ makes all platforms legally responsible for the content hosted and shared on their platforms.

The process of updating the bloc’s copyright laws began in the European Commission two years ago, ostensibly to protect Europe’s publishers, broadcasters and artists and guarantee fair compensation from big tech companies.

By essentially forcing companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter to pay artists and publishers for the reproduction of their work online, include in meme format, the EU is effectively clamping down on online memery.

The onus will now be on tech companies to clamp down on content-sharing on their platforms, which will likely ensure yet more draconian policing of speech and content.

EU member states now have two years to pass their own laws putting Article 13 into effect.

Tens of thousands marched in protest across Germany ahead of the vote, decrying what they viewed as severe online censorship.

Tech giant Google said that while the directive is “improved” it will still lead to legal uncertainty and will damage Europe’s creative and digital economies.

Critics have argued that the only way for Article 13 to be effectively enforced would be through the use of upload filters which automatically check content to see if it’s copyrighted or not, at least in theory. However, the exact mechanics of such a system have yet to be fully debated and the potential for abuse is immediately clear.
