who's interfering with whom in the propaganda war...


Washington used CNN and Russian-language US outlets Voice of America and Radio Liberty in attempts to meddle into the 2016 Russian elections and the situation in the country in general, the head of a parliamentary lower chamber committee said, urging an investigation.

“We are to look into the specific cases of the US attempts to influence the elections in Russia. However, I’d like to remind you, that the agencies in question are parts of a much bigger US system pressing against our country. It uses a wide range of instruments against Russia,” the head of the lower house Committee for Information Policy, Leonid Levin MP (Fair Russia), said at an extended committee meeting on Tuesday.


CNN and Voice of America representatives were invited to the meeting as well, however, they didn’t show up, according to Levin.

“It would be reasonable to not only consider the possibilities of the US meddling into Russia’s electoral process, but also into our affairs on the whole,” Levin said.

The pressure system as he described it, involves “various funds, NGOs and grants,” that should be subjected to checks, the MP said.

Levin's idea has been echoed by the head of the Lower House Committee for Eurasian Integration and Ties with Compatriots, Konstantin Zatulin, who was actually the first one to voice it in March after US Senator Jeanne Shaheen had called for investigating RT’s “funding sources and foreign connections” and its activities as a “foreign agent.”

“If they [the US] are legally creating obstacles on our way of spreading information, despite the amendments to the Constitution, freedoms and rights they are so proud of... then we have every reason to limit their corresponding state and parastatal radio stations and TV channels,” Zatulin said.

The committee, however, decided not to request information from the US media outlets whether they comply with the Russian legislation, Levin told journalists at the close of the meeting. However, every MP has a right to request any kind of information from any agency on their own initiative, he stressed.

gas in the air...


An Iraqi military unit with US and Australian advisers has been hit by an Islamic State chemical attack that the Pentagon says was ineffective.

Key points:
  • Pentagon aware of "low grade" chemical attack on Iraqi unit in west Mosul
  • Australian and US advisers were with the unit at the time, showed no medical signs of exposure
  • Islamic State's gas attacks labelled as "rudimentary" and desperate


The Pentagon said it was aware of what it said was a "low grade" chemical attack on an Iraqi unit in west Mosul, which has been the scene of heavy fighting as Iraqi forces and their allies battle Islamic State militants for possession of the city.

A defence official told the ABC Australian and US advisers were with the unit at the time.

The ABC understands the foreign advisers were medically screened and showed no signs of exposure. All returned to duty.

"My advice right at the moment is no Australian troops were affected but Australian forces did provide assistance following the attack. That's my current advice received in last few minutes," Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull told AM.

And where do the ISIS troops get their chemicals from? The place in Syria where "beautiful Children" were killed...

Meanwhile in Japan:


Japan has revealed that high levels of a banned pollutant have been found in groundwater underneath Marine Corps Air Station Futenma, on the island of Okinawa.

Two recent surveys conducted in August 2016 and January of this year have revealed abnormally high concentrations of perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and per-fluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), both used as aircraft lubricants, fire-retardant foam and a water-repellant, in the groundwater underneath the US Marine base in Okinawa. Both were banned in Japan in 2010.

the US and their dogs don't want to know the truth...

ASTANA (Sputnik) – The blocking of the Russian proposal at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on investigating the alleged chemical weapon use in Syria’s Idlib province aims to direct attention to the idea of regime change in Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.


"Yesterday, our joint proposal that OPCW experts visit the sites of the suspected chemical weapon use incident in Syria was blocked by western delegations without coherent explanations. This showed the complete incompetence of the positions of our western colleagues who basically prohibit the OPCW from sending their experts to the site of the incident, to the air base from where aircraft loaded with chemical weapons allegedly flew out," Lavrov said on Friday at a joint meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

Lavrov stressed that there has been no response from London or Paris to Russian requests for detailed information on alleged chemical weapon probes taken in Syria.

"I think we are very close to this organization [OPCW] being discredited," Lavrov said, adding that the spread of "false information on the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government is being used to move away from the implementation of resolution 2254 which stipulates a political settlement with the participation of all the Syrian parties and to switch to the long-cherished idea of regime change."

The US and its dogs do not want to know the truth about the gas in Idlib, which would be going against their preconceived apportion of guilt -- based on their alternative facts, fake news that are sustained in the MMMM (the rotten western media) to suit an outcome agreeable to their renters, the Saudis.
