#CBC Propaganda Challenge 3: #Harper vs #cdnpoli vs #Ukraine vs #Russia vs #NATO

Sadly, we are forced to continue our quest to expose the blatant abuse of our trust via the CBC News. Before we begin examining the propaganda of the day, please allow us to present our previous summary posts dated 07 August 2014, 24 August 2014, 27 August 2014 along with two related summary posts from earlier today, 29 August 2014 approx 7:00am EDT and 29 August 2014 approx 4:30pm EDT.

The propaganda piece of the day takes a real ugly and very noticeable twist and is probably the most obvious of all. Not only have the typical subtle things been “updated” such as the title, url wording and link, but the entire article has been pretty much rewritten from the top to the bottom. We were rather fortunate to catch a snapshot of the very first version, before the initial “update” this time.

While the choices being made by the upper echelon of the CBC News Network have been opaquely shrouded, their “modus operandi” is rather transparent. They are hell bent on justifying and hard selling an unnecessary war based on speculation and a false narrative along with all the armaments and munitions necessary, period. The one thing that “We the People” know is that they will never actually fight in any wars because they are cowards. Not only that but based upon the history of modern warfare, not only will their children, families and cohorts not fight in this war, they will indeed profit handsomely while remaining safe and secure.

Oddly enough, it now becomes crystal clear that the Kiev Regime is looking for a handout from our hard earned tax dollars and the Harper Regime will be more than willing to donate as much of our money as possible. Damn the costs, their Loyalists, caucus and constituents will never pay a dime, nor spill a single drop of their own blood. They are nothing more than vampire capitalists funding their vampire oligarch comrades ethnic cleansing campaigns across the globe.

In other words, the Harper Regime along with their nefarious globalist minions, trolls and Loyalists are nothing more than criminals, cowards, carpetbaggers, liars and thieves. This has been proven from the torture cover ups of the Afghan detainees, the air-support and bombing campiagn in Libya that allowed cover for terrorists to seize control and destroy the infrastructure, to the “non-letal” aid provided to the Syria that fell into the hands of IS/ISIL/ISIS. Now they have sent 2 planeloads of armaments and munitions to Kurdisatan (Iraq) to battle their own creation along with millions of our tax dollars. They have sent at least 3 planeloads of “non-letal” military equipment to Ukraine already (we weren’t’ even notified there was a second, were we?), much of which seems to have been transferred to the oligarch funded militias such as the ultra-far-right wing Right Sector and Azov battalions that are not under the command nor control of the Ukrainian Military. It has also been rumoured that the equipment delivered to Ukraine may have included retired Javelin advanced anti-tank missile weapon systems. Strangely, Ukraine has announced $3 billion USD defence spending boost, which is a far cry from how the Harper Regime treats out own currently suffering Veterans as opposed to remembering old wars, let alone our own Military whos budgets have been gutted by approx $30 billion. If that weren’t enough, harper is ratcheting up the rhetoric about Russia while at the same time committing to aggressive NATO posturing that will certainly place our ill-equipped forces in harms way while Canada’s NATO delegation engages in a flame war via Twitter.

How much ideological idiocy is enough already? Does the Harper Regime really think this is some kind of game or are they just insane? Who are they trying to impress and at what cost?

Moving forward to what the focus of this summary is all about. Below you will find a very simplify presentation as the previous summary articles. First you will see a numbered list of general details, followed by the snapshots of the “article” as the updates were captured. Like we stated above, a summary comparison is really not necessary, the pictures are worth a thousand words. All one needs to do is focus on the initial version and the last to see how the “story” was completely transformed. Please note that as of this draft there were 8 versions of this “article” prior to the publication of this summary post…

Brief Summary

Version 2 seen a change in the title as well as the url “wording” and link edit to reflect the changes. This seems like the most genuine “update” as it included the response from Alexander V. Zakharchenko, Chairman of The Council of Ministers of The Donetsk National Republic to Russian President Putin’s request.

Version 3 seen a sudden drop in the number of shares and the the diplomatic and positive tone shifted. The bottom segment “Obama rules out military action” was removed and replaced with “More economic sanctions considered”. This seems at odds with the previous “demands” that President Putin must do more to deescalate the situation.

Version 4 seen a rather odd image swap. The header photo was replaced with the caption “Servicemen sit atop an armoured vehicle as they drive east away from the Ukrainian border in Russia’s Rostov region.” that seems to speculate the they are Russian servicemen. BUT, the flag on top of the vehicle is clearly not a Russian Flag, nor the flag of the Federal State of Novorossiya. It seems like it is a white flag, which suggests that it may be Ukrainian troops traversing through the safe passage via the “humanitarian corridor” towards Russia.

Version 5 sees the title, url “wording” and link changed and the previously swapped image becoming an embedded video link with the caption “Putin calls for escape corridor for Ukraine troops 2:46”. The problem here is that the clip of the report from CBC News Network that is embedded features more NATO war-mongering propaganda based upon speculation. The “tone” is beginning to drift further into the propaganda abyss. Version 5 also seen a dramatic rise in the share count.

Version 6 seen the “article” being swapped from an AP (Associated Propaganda) piece to a Thomson Reuters credited piece as well as the title url “wording” and link edit. This is not the first time this has occurred during this manufactured crisis. It also seen a title change to proclaim the original goals all along of annexation and occupation by NATO. It also acknowledges what has been fairly evident to any independent researcher that Ukraine is definably loosing the battle to cleanse the East of the Russian speaking Ukrainians. It is also apparent that oligarchs that control the Kiev Regime have effectively looted the National Treasury and has exhausted whatever IMF funds it may have received up to now. Ukraine is flat broke and an utterly failed state at this point and is desperately looking for a handout by seeking NATO membership in order to gain free Western military aid and cash.

Versions 7 and 8 pretty much massage the narrative and presentation for general consumption to the ill-informed masses that have been spoon-fed non-stop false propaganda by the MSM for several months.

In summary, the false narrative and deceptive propaganda has reached a dangerous level, desperation has reared it’s ugly head and those that pushed for the putsch have reached the point of not return. Based upon the incompetence of the Kiev Regime and rush towards conflict as opposed to dialog, we should expect something rather stupid sooner rather than later. They will need to prepare for new opponents as the Right Sector, Azov Battalion and other ultra-far-right oligarch funded “volunteer” militia (mercenary) groups head West to Kiev. if lucky they may be able to stay in power long enough to rush through NATO legislation before the proposed election and/or General Winter storms in. Make no mistake as these groups have made no bones about it, they will not accept the EU nor any other outside forces to control or occupy their territory since their motto is Ukraine is for Ukrainians. It might be wise to keep an eye on the moves by the Svaboda/Svoboda Party since they have the most control, contrary to popular assumptions.


In closing, let’s just state one last observation, Harper is in over his head!


As an additional footnote, for those that may wonder why there are “so many” of our youths joining in the fighting in Syria with the likes of IS/ISIL/ISIS and who actually began the recruitment drive a few short years ago, take a gander at the following three articles. You’ll notice a seemingly forgotten yet often repeated proclamation by Harper’s own John Baird. Maybe these young men feel that it is their patriotic duty to serve and are simply following the mandate set by the Harper Regime and have headed the call to action?

Syria’s Assad ‘must go,’ Baird warns

By Edmonton Journal
March 5, 2012 dumpharper

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird condemned the continued violence and aid impasse in Syria as heavy shelling continued in Homs over the weekend, saying that Canada is considering new measures to make clear that Syrian president Bashar Assad “must go.”

“The depravity and reprehensible acts of the Assad regime continue to sink to new lows. Assad and his regime are blocking humanitarian aid from getting to the Syrians who need it most, while making life miserable for countless others,” Baird said in a statement late Saturday.

“Canada is considering new measures to make clear that Assad must go. Change will happen. Syrians will have their day – and Canada stands with them in their calls for a better brighter future.”

The Red Cross delivered aid to areas around the battered Baba Amro district of the Syrian city of Homs on Sunday, but was blocked from entering the former rebel stronghold itself, three days after anti-government fighters fled a month-long siege.

In a further indication civilians were being caught up in the conflict, up to 2,000 Syrians fled into neighbouring Lebanon, the UN Refugee Agency said.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said it had been prevented from entering Baba Amro by Syrian ground forces despite receiving government permission, a move activists said was to prevent aid workers witnessing army “massacres.”

After a month of bombardment by President Bashar Assad’s forces, concerns mounted for freezing, hungry and wounded civilians in Homs, which on Saturday had come under renewed shelling by government troops, anti-Assad activists said.

UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon said on Friday he had received “grisly reports” troops were executing and torturing people in Homs after insurgents abandoned their positions.

Late last month, Canada issued a stern warning to those opposing As-sad’s regime that the protection of religious minorities and good relations with the country’s neighbours must be a priority for any post-Assad government.

The demand, delivered by Baird in Tunisia, highlights the complex nature of the uprising in Syria as Canada and its allies struggle with a response to the crisis.

Baird and foreign ministers from the U.S., Britain, Qatar and other western and Arab countries were in Tunis to discuss ways to end the violence that has killed as many as 8,000 Syrians, and to begin a transition to democracy.

The ministers, meeting for the first time as the Friends of Syria, called on the Assad regime to stop its attacks on civilian areas and let in humanitarian aid – including $1.5 million in assistance announced by Baird at the conference.

They also indicated a willingness to work with the Syrian National Council, which has sought to position itself as a legitimate alternative to Assad’s regime.

Baird calls for end of violence in Syria

11:29 am, January 22nd, 2014

JESSICA HUME | QMI AGENCY

OTTAWA — Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird says the top priority in Syria needs to be ending the violence.

Baird spoke to reporters from Montreaux, Switzerland, where he is attending the Geneva 2 peace talks on Syria to try to find a political solution to the civil war that has raged for more than two years.

Canada’s top concerns include humanitarian access and “the number of extremists and radicals” entering Syria, Baird said.

Baird reaffirmed that Syrian President Bashar Al Assad must go, and said “Canada strongly believes that those who commit war crimes should be held to account.”

One day before the peace talks began, hundreds of thousands of brutal images allegedly depicting the torture and murder of thousands of civilians at the hands of the Assad regime were smuggled out of the country and released to the media.

Baird called the images “deeply disturbing, shocking” and “frightening.”

Baird is representing Canada at the peace talks, which are attended by 40 countries and groups including the Arab League and the UN.

More than 2.3 million refugees have fled Syria and roughly 9.3 million Syrians are in need of humanitarian aid.

Oxfam says “millions of lives are riding on this event, which offers the best chance of ending the violence and alleviating the suffering of the millions of Syrians caught up in the conflict.”

The aid group also urged the international community to agree to a “complete halt” of arms and ammunitions transfers to Syria.

Canada targets Assad family by stepping up sanctions against Syria

Agence France-Presse | March 30, 2012 | Last Updated: Mar 30 4:46 PM ET
More from Agence France-Presse

Syria president Bashar al-Assad’s family the target of Canadian sanctions

MONTREAL — Canada tightened the sanctions Friday on Syria, targeting President Bashar al-Assad’s wife, mother, sister and sister-in-law a week after the European Union made a similar move.

Stepping up its sanctions as fighting raged after an embattled Assad said he had accepted a peace plan to put an end to a year of violence that has left over 9,000 dead, Canada said it sought a “Syria that respects the fundamental rights of all its people.”

“Canada’s position is clear: Assad must go,” Foreign Minister John Baird said in a statement.

The four Assad relatives were among 12 people and two oil companies added to an existing Canadian blacklist now totaling 127 people and 41 entities.

Under Canada’s seventh round of Syria sanctions, those cited will be subject to an asset freeze and a prohibition on economic dealings.

“These latest sanctions target in particular those who profit from their association with the regime and those closest to Assad, including his wife Asma,” Baird said.

“Assad’s family may be kept shielded from the misery of the average Syrian, but they will not be immune from international will.”

A stylish Western-educated former investment banker, Syria’s British-born first lady was widely expected to give the regime a more human face and shatter the isolation of the secretive Assad family.

But she became the focus of sharp criticism this month when Britain’s Guardian newspaper released e-mails showing the ruling couple shopping for luxury goods as the country slid into bloody chaos.

Baird is due in Istanbul on Sunday for a Friends of Syria meeting to head off the crisis.

The United States earlier hit Syria’s Defense Minister Dawoud Rajiha as well as the army’s deputy chief of staff and the head of presidential security with sanctions, with the Treasury Department saying it would hold individuals accountable for the bloody crackdown.

The EU sanctions — the union’s 13th round in less than a year — were announced a week ago. EU foreign ministers reiterated a plea for Assad to “step aside to allow for a peaceful and democratic transition.
