For The Record

All's Well That's Orwell, Part 2: The Ministry of Truth and the Ukrainian Crisis, Part 2 (Schmemann Uber Alles)

 

Lis­ten (MP3): Side 1   Side 2  

The broad­cast high­lights the Orwellian nature of U.S. media cov­er­age of the events in the Ukraine. In par­tic­u­lar, the dis­grace­ful behav­ior of The New York Times–the CIA’s #1 pro­pa­ganda asset–is set forth here. The white­wash­ing of the Nazi and fas­cist nature of the gov­ern­ment in the Ukraine and casual dis­missal of accu­rate Russ­ian claims as “pro­pa­ganda” by the “Gray Lady” as the Times is known, has set the tone for the rest of our media to res­onate with the dic­tates of our Min­istry of Truth. We won­der about the influ­ence in the Times’ cov­er­age of Serge Schme­mann, as well as the pos­si­ble future role of Islamist and Pan-Turkist ele­ments in the cri­sis. (The photo at right cel­e­brates the Ein­satz­gruppe Nachti­gall or Nachti­gall Bat­tal­ion, as it is also known. That unit exter­mi­nated the Jew­ish pop­u­la­tion of Lvov in 1941. A street in the Lvov dis­trict was recently re-named in its honor by the “new” Ukrain­ian government.)

Knock, Knock? Who’s There? Either a Strongbox or a Wall Safe. It’s Undecided. In this post we're going to take a look at the recent Supreme Court ruling on 4th amendment rights and smartphones and how this ruling could impact the ongoing debate over NSA spying. We're also going to look at the other side of the coin: the 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination during a time when encryption tools strong enough to thwart law enforcement and the NSA are becoming increasingly mainstream. Is encryption like a strongbox or a wall safe? You might be surprised by just how important that question has become. Read more »
