Where Do You Get Your Ukraine News?

If it’s from the established media you’re not getting the full story. And you are being purposely misled.

Beginning with Robert Parry’s work in 2014 to identify U.S. involvement in the Kiev coup, the role played by neo-Nazis,  and the danger of nuclear confrontation, Consortium News has been on the forefront of Ukraine coverage.  That’s because we don’t leave out facts inconvenient to U.S. and Western interests, which completely manipulates the story.

Here are some of the most important original Consortium News stories on Ukraine since 2014.

    My primary source for news about Ukraine? Well, MoonofAlabama, though given its comment volume it’s like trying to drink from a fire hose. It often provides pointers to other very pertinent material as well (including that at CN).

    The roots of my own awakening to the corruption of the Democratic Party establishment came from closely scrutinizing its behavior around the time of the 2003 Iraq invasion and later during the 2009-2010 ACA fiasco (both of which could be understood by careful attention to some coverage in mainstream media with help from independent web sites). So with me domestic politics led the way to my overall disgust with our government’s behavior (though I did believe that we had no business fighting in Vietnam back in that day), and I suspect that may be why nominal liberals are so reluctant to abandon their preferred major party’s stance in the current international situation – i.e., that the long-standing intentional political division of the country into obedient herds of sheep has made it far easier for them to be led by mainstream media (perhaps especially the PBS News Hour with its disgusting introductory claims to being ‘honest, balanced, trusted’, only the last of which may, unfortunately, have some validity) and resistant to other viewpoints (to the point of uncritically dismissing them as propaganda or misled ignorance).

    That’s why the excellent work done here at CN faces such great obstacles to reaching the comatose masses who simply can’t seriously consider viewpoints that conflict with their carefully manipulated preconceptions (the main means of manipulation and division perhaps being simplistic ideology and distracting identity politics which divert attention from more crucial specific issues). Perhaps more emphasis on how consistently our government and mainstream media lie to us about their clearly divergent goals from what they profess them to be would help the masses develop a more questioning attitude about important specifics.

    The most reliable information I get is from CN these days simply because CN provides the most unbiased reports. The MSM in this country is much worse that horrible. Their refusal to provide unbiased reporting of real facts is criminal or should be. I can tell you that in my opinion the MSM’s personalities have voluntarily traded any semblance of personal honesty for the almighty dollar. They have prostituted themselves in a most ornery and foul manner, that of giving up one’s value system for money. Presenting the lie as something other than what it actually is.

    I have witnessed that to even the most unbiased of those commenting on this meat grinder, there seem to be no fresh methods to phrase the wanton waste of human life and insult to the this earth that accurately reflect how obscene the events in Ukraine have become.

    I view most of the videos Beau of the Fifth column posts and his efforts are hampered somewhat by the venue he uses. He took a stand early on citing his belief that Putin had lost the war, at the time the conflict was only a few months old. During those early days he laments that peace talks should have been the rule of the day instead of murdering noncombatants. Historically he has held to his logic on this matter. By doing so he, in my opinion has, and by reporting the events there in the context of his opinion revealed the truthful reason the conflict exists. Simply put the neocons desire to punish Putin and his military in an open attempt to affect regime change.

    This is shameful behavior our country has involved itself in and it seems only those umbilicaly connected to the government who cannot or will not see this activity for what it is.

    In parting I’d like to take this opportunity to recommend everyone check out his channel, as much as I realize so many find the venue unsavory, and see his post of Jun 10th 2023, the topic to search in “Let’s talk about the Armies recruitment goals being missed.” He, as usual makes som great points. This will be great news to most peace loving folks.

    If this didn’t make my so very angry it might be depressing, so far the anger keeps me energized and engaged. However the communication of constructive thoughts or opinions that bare any weight on the issues has become a waste of time, the damage is enormous to everyone on the planet, wasting time and treasure that is needs so desperately to be focused on the climate issues. So much for influencing world leadership.

    Thanks CN, the check is in the mail!

    Most people like to get their news by kicking back in a comfortable chair and flicking on the TV. It is unbelievable to them that the entire mainstream media has been captured by criminals and is feeding them false cover stories. Because that is a scenario literally beyond any James Bond movie. Yet it is a fundamental fact of our reality today. And it is an essential fact for our voters to understand.

    The below is a good current report on an old story … Bush Sr. and Colin Powell invade Panama. I thought I’d point it out because it cites Consortium News as a source of information. Good Work! Today’s front page referencing work you did a decade ago.

    “Shattered justice”, By GT staff reporters
    “US invasion of Panama shames ‘just cause’; ‘Operation Sharp Edge’ left Liberia continually ‘bleeding’”

    “A 2013 report by the American media Consortium News stated that the US overthrew the Noriega regime under the guise of drug control but the result of the war showed it had no positive influence on preventing drug flow into the US from Central America.”

    I’m guessing that this references this fine ‘Special Report’ on this site.

    One fascinating thing about America, the deeper back into its history you dig, the more lies you find. Remember the Maine! You do know that Paul Revere spent that famous night as a British prisoner, don’t ya? If America is really opposed to invasions that take land from a neighbor, if borders are forever sacred, then they can give the land I live on back to Mexico or the Navajo. Of course, I had the advantage of learning about the lies when I was a young teen and Mr. Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon Papers. Given the draft, it was of personal concern, and I never forgot.

    “O, yes,
    I say it plain,
    America never was America to me,
    And yet I swear this oath—
    America will be!

    Out of the rack and ruin of our gangster death,
    The rape and rot of graft, and stealth, and lies,
    We, the people, must redeem
    The land, the mines, the plants, the rivers.
    The mountains and the endless plain—
    All, all the stretch of these great green states—
    And make America again!”
    — Langston Hughes, “Let America be America Again” -1935

    It’s important to have sites that remain open and dedicated to examining nuances. Throughout the Ukraine war US-aligned mouthpieces have pushed the “naked aggression of Russia” as “Hitler-like” with its “invasion,” and even some supporting writers here of an opposing view have bought into the “invasion” language, yet CN allows challenges to this weak and misleading interpretation. The official view–ignoring historical evidence on what has caused the conflict–is one of the increasingly brazen acts of psychopaths running the Western Establishment and must be called out, must be continuingly examined at its roots. It is doing this–this valuable dedication to fact–that gives readers some small hope for change . . .

    “Being purposely misled” seems almost too neutral of a term. Gaslighting is one thing, and then there is holy writ. When something becomes absolutely unmentionable in any public forum — never to be said in the news media and completely censored in the social media (with real costs, as Consortium News itself is the perfect example) — the word “mislead” sounds far too polite. It’s less misleading than it is threatening. Contradicting their lies, to them, is a punishable threat. And they have been making good on it.

    Even to listen to them talk amongst themselves, such as in the pages of Foreign Policy magazine, you can see it is even required to mislead themselves: they must drink their own Kool Aid. Look at the war in Ukraine: never mind the reality on the ground, Russia is “loosing badly.” You must not only chant the litany, you must believe it. If you do not then you are a heretic that must be burned at the stake. To them Ukraine’s victory is obvious because a) NATO defines what winning is, and b) Russia isn’t winning. In other words facts on the ground are secondary, if considered at all.

    As a person with a family, the clear cognitive dissonance of our “dear leaders” leaves me terrified for the future. To be honest, right now Global Warming’s promise of coastal flooding, inland desertification, and inevitable mass migration seem almost quaint against the threat of WWIII. These people seem like players of a game where they are the winners, or else nobody is, period.

      We are all familiar with “the fog of war” and “the first casualty of war is the truth “, but what’s occurring with this Ukraine debacle is unprecedented in western media history. As two of many examples, according to western media the many thousands of Azov crazies were completely rehabilitated in 2022, and the Russians blew up their own pipelines after numerous Biden Administration officials told us specifically that they were going to destroy it. We may not be quite into 1984, but it’s not far down the road we are traveling.

    Wars seem to be profit motives driven. For the 20th century onward the ability to achieve massive destruction may have replaced intentional fires as a means for urban renewal and reconstruction. The people drive away as refugees then are replaced inverters with the funds for reconstruction. It appears to be like the 80’s wall street hostile takeovers except now it is countries or regions in play for multi-national corporations. All that old infrastructure in need of being replaced like the old cities in the 20th century. Like firebombing in Japan and carpet bombing of cities. Something better is required this century if w hope to survive as a human civilization.
    The Ukraine breadbasket for agribusiness and a bonus for LNG sales to Europe plus a religious culture war between orthodoxies and in the pivot to Asia. WWII just didn’t rebuild the world as well as expected. So we seem to be out for a replay of folly.

    Given the vast amount of media available nowadays, it’s difficult for a non-politico (like myself and most people) to easily discern any truth in the political sphere, but one CAN make some judgments based the historical accuracy of the various sources. If source ‘A’ says ‘X’ is true and source ’Y’ says ‘X’ is not true (or is uncertain), then one can see what the outcome is and assign credibility to one source over the other. For me, the Iraq War /weapons of mass destruction was a virtually irrefutable example of this and CN henceforth became my go-to source for political commentary and reporting.

      It wasn’t just the US. The ENTIRE western European leadership was on board between 1990 and 1996 for including Russia in a new European security ‘home’.

    In these times, you can obtain translation plugins for browsers. I know there are several available for Firefox, including non-Google ones. This means you can read most of the world’s languages. Russian happens to work fairly well. Spanish, less well, apparently due to the differences in structure (ie, United States becomes flipped to Estados Unidos in Espanol’s structure), but its readable. Chinese characters not so much, but you can sometimes get the gist of it.

    This means you have the ability to get different points of view. This does not mean you should take what you see as gospel … anywhere. But multiple points of view can help to get some perspective. It can also be interesting to see just how much of the world is giving the US versions any credibility.

    Just remember, today you can read any ‘paper’ in the world. Although, I also recommend using a VPN for privacy and security, which allows you to appear to the website as from anywhere you want to be from.

    I’ve found the three or four folks who’ve received from me links to various reports/essays about Ukraine have been quite resistant to take on board the info. Establishment media has too great a hold on too many people – it’s very dismaying to see most folks uncritically ‘consume’ what they’re spoon-fed by the NY Times, CNN, NPR, etc. ………….I think it’s just too scary/threatening for most people to think ‘outside the box’ . It’s as if one’s equilibrium is messed with having to consider they’ve been propagandized by corporate media. It’s much more comforting to bathe in all the story lines depicting how righteous the US is and how ‘evil’ Putin is. ……….. I’m looked upon as some kind of kook, I guess. …….These friends probably think I’m a secret Trump supporter, too. ……all for trying to share intelligent analysis that includes proper historical context about the origins and character of Ukraine/NATO/Russia/USA relations.

      I’m trying to think out an essay about liberals. How, on the one hand, they love to talk about how bewildered they are by various events, especially mass shootings. How, on the other hand, they cannot allow any outside information to trickle into their brains. If I’m bewildered by something, I spend time reading and learning and thinking, but these activities are apparently anathema to most people.

      Yeah shmutzoid, ‘ah feel your pain’ (re: non-acceptance of non-MSM view of Ukraine situation by friends/family). As RWWilson and others note above, too many people want the comfortable/easy/ socially acceptable view, even when most of us can easily remember that we were blatantly lied-to in 2003 about ‘having’ to invade Iraq, which even the MSM eventually had to quietly admit-to. Besides avoiding this subject with friends/ coworkers / extended family, I have a spouse who is a ‘Maddow-ite’ so we’ve had to agree to disagree on politics and don’t discuss the subject in order to maintain marital bliss. I’m still shocked by the way the US is very INTENTIONALLY proceeding with war-plans with China, and the sheep-like acceptance by the general US populace… this can’t end well!

      That is part of the horror. Willful ignorance in the face of an impending world war. It’s not just the Germans who ignored…

      The lockdown on info began with covid, and was a trial run for ultimate state conrol. The Twitter Files make clear that the state controls info on covid and Ukraine.
