Follow intrepid Max as he gets to the bottom things on the ground.

He uses a very effective technique of interspersing clips of American robots, er, we mean newscasters, saying one thing, and showing his own footage showing the exact opposite. Quite entertaining.

Here he is touring a state-subsidized communal market showing that there are plenty of basic consumer goods available to poor Venezuelans:

Here he looks in on an up-scale mall in Caracas and hams it up with the locals, hunting for ‘socialism’:

Here’s a guy who quit a lucrative job on Wall Street and returned to Venezuela to support Chavez and Maduro. He explains why he thinks Maduro is better than Guaido:

And here’s Blumenthal back in the US explaining why he’s convinced that the Venezuela ‘crisis’ is a US-manufactured ‘psy-op.’

Good reporting and good journalism. From independent media of course, you’ll never find something this honest in the mainstream.

The neocon coup attempt underway in Venezuela seems to be flailing, and like magic, it has disappeared from American headlines.

Well thank goodness for Russian TV, they are all over this story with exclusive access, top-notch reporters, and a worldview that is pleasantly not dictated by Jewish neocons, who who run all the main American networks.

Transcript of video 1:

The country is calm. The storm is neither over nor coming. The hypocritical operation to ship the American humanitarian aid across the Colombian border, undertaken by the usurper Guaido last week, has failed. The protests have calmed down. The attempt to stage a coup has failed. However, the tension at the Colombian border isn’t going down.

Anton Lyadov with the latest news from Venezuela.

The instigators from across the border have just set an already burned truck on fire that was carrying humanitarian aid. The Venezuelan police have managed to push them back. The provocateurs have scattered around the forest. We can hear them trying to throw rocks from there, shouting their slogans. Instead of tank tops and masks covering their faces, they now have gas masks, helmets, and shields. The Venezuelan officers are carrying away this makeshift ladder that the protesters used to climb on the bridge. A chaotic hail of stones. Primitive, but it’s still a strategy. The demonstrators are setting a tire on fire to hide behind the smoke screen.

The front rank carries the shields and the rear rank attacks from behind them throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails. These things were confiscated by the Venezuelan military and police. Previously, the provocateurs from across the border used to only throw rocks but now, they’re using makeshift slings such as this one. They shoot these glass balls. We’ve talked with several soldiers who got hit, it’s actually pretty painful. They claim that a strike to the temple will kill a person.

Several people are shooting simultaneously: The man behind the right shield and the man in the red shirt in the middle. The tension at the bridges connecting the two countries isn’t decreasing.

Excellent New Russian Documentary About the Disaster Facing the White South African Minority (Video)

16-02-19 08:38:00,

This is a 15 minute excerpt from a new documentary film about the disaster facing White South Africans, made by the main Russian state television company.

It gives a great summary of the ethnic tension in South Africa in the post-apartheid state, and how the situation has changed to “a reverse apartheid”.

The white minority at about 10% of the population now faces political marginalization which pushes them into slums, crime rates are skyrocketing, and the country’s economic progress is declining.  

The racial attacks are horrific. In some cases young children are even boiled alive. A Russian woman can’t even operate a hair Salon in Pretoria without facing robberies and death threats.

Some of these whites resort to arming themselves and learning self-defense, some try to peacefully resettle exclusively white African towns like Orania, while others look to emigrating to white majority countries.

We’ve written about the Russian involvement to support relocating these white farmer descendants before:

Two centuries ago, pressure from the British Crown forced the Boers to leave their coastal settlements and migrate further inland to settle Pretoria and Johannesburg. Today it is pressure from the black majority pushing a new Great Trek as the Boers look to relocate to Australia and Russia.

The Republic of South Africa is the most economically developed country in Africa. Now it’s a BRIC and G20 state friendly to Russia. However, until the end of the last century, it was under international sanctions approved by the UN due to the official policy of apartheid: the discrimination of the black majority by the white population.

These are the Englishmen and the Afrikaners, descendants of the Dutch. Apartheid was ended only in the 1990s as the result of the fight of generations of black people for their rights.

Now that victory has been achieved, there’s another problem. Illiteracy among the black population, meaning poverty, which gives birth to crime.

On the one hand, the apartheid regime limited black people’s access to the education, but on the other hand, not going to school and not being taught by white teachers was considered to be an act of patriotism.

As soon as the generation of those deprived of education and patriotic drop-outs grew up many of its representatives had no choice but to take to high road.

Excellent Debate Between Glenn Greenwald and a Man Brainwashed by MSNBC About Trump-Putin Summit (Full Transcript)

17-07-18 06:18:00,

Two lefties have an interesting discussion. This was very good. It gets the coveted Russia Insider “recommended” seal of approval:

Courtesy of Democracy Now!, a George Soros-funded platform. (Yes, life is full of inconsistencies, yet another nugget of wisdom you acquire when reading Russia Insider).

This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form.

AMY GOODMAN: President Trump holding a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, today, beginning with a one-on-one, 90-minute meeting, only their translators attending the meeting with them. Putin kept Trump waiting for the summit by landing in Finland about an hour late. This morning, Trump and Putin made a statement at a photo op before their private meeting in which Trump said he and Putin would discuss China, trade and nuclear weapons.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I think we have great opportunities together as two countries, that, frankly, we have not been getting along very well for the last number of years. I’ve been here not too long, but it’s getting close to two years. But I think we will end up having an extraordinary relationship. I hope so. I’ve been saying—and I’m sure you’ve heard—over the years, and as I campaigned, that getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. … And I really think the world wants to see us get along. We are the two great nuclear powers. We have 90 percent of the nuclear. And that’s not a good thing, it’s a bad thing. And I think we hopefully can do something about that, because it’s not a positive force, it’s a negative force. So we’ll be talking about that, among other things.

AMY GOODMAN: President Trump faces pressure to confront Putin over Kremlin meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, after a grand jury indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for their alleged role in hacking email accounts controlled by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Before today’s meeting, Trump tweeted he blamed poor relations between the U.S. and Russia on Justice Department’s probe, writing, “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!” Trump also tweeted,
