The notorious and legendary Nazi propagandist Paul Joseph Goebbels would be in sheer awe of the crackerjack information warfare capabilities of the US state-corporate media just shy of seventy years after he committed suicide in the bowels of Der Fuhrer's bunker as the allies roared into Berlin. Goebbels, like all of the historic masters of a particular art form often build their life's work upon that of others who inspired them. In his case it was the famous American father of the public relations industry Edward Bernays and as the fine art of manufacturing consent was honed and meshed with technology it is apparent that Goebbels is the inspiration and model for the modern US media.

Herr Goebbels once famously remarked: "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State." - the "big lie" has become the bread and butter of post September 11, 2001 exceptionalist America and is holy gospel to the reigning political establishment and the state-corporate generated force field of hogwash that protects them. They just keep selling that "big lie" and the latest and most crassly cynical example is Malaysian Airlines flight MH17.

The last time that Secretary of State and Skull and Bones alumni John Kerry hit for the cycle on the Sunday morning "news" shows he was pushing a war on Syria that was based on shaky evidence that to this day has not been substantiated. Whirlwind John and his incurable case of diarrhea of the mouth appeared on all five of the Sabbath day feasts of bullshit that far too many Americans believe are credible discussion forums rather than the interlocked propaganda dispersal systems that they are in reality. Kerry was seeking to exploit the shooting down of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over a war zone in Ukraine on Thursday for political gain in order stick the dagger into the hated Vladimir Putin who foiled Kerry's last slam dunk case for war and has been reviled by the neocon infested State Department ever since.

The weekly array of bloodsucking ghouls trotted out to make their cases becomes increasingly wretched as the desperation of the empire itself does likewise and this Sunday's slate was an all-star lineup of scum, warmongers and criminals in high places. In addition to the reigning buffoon from Foggy Bottom there was the lunatic foreign born Texas Senator Ted Cruz along with fellow Senators Robert Menendez (the Cubans made him consort with those prostitutes) and Bob Corker a triad of apologists for Israeli war crimes on "Fox News Sunday". Senators Corker and Menendez have been the tip of the spear when it comes to anti-American treachery by elected officials to sink the P5+1 Iran talks and are exploiting the latest wave of Middle East violence to finally sink it into the soft white underbelly of diplomatic efforts in order to get on with the business of bombing Tehran.

There was Secretary Kerry along with the always strident Senator Lindsey Graham on NBC's "Meet the Press" with the always slimy David Gregory from which I excerpt the following from the transcript:

DAVID GREGORY: Secretary Kerry, welcome back to Meet the Press.

SECRETARY JOHN KERRY: I'm glad to be with you, David. Thank you.

DAVID GREGORY: The president demanded absolute cooperation from Russia, from the separatists in Eastern Ukraine. And now the whole was is watching. And the startling developments that the rebels are removing bodies from the crash site, putting them on refrigerated trains, even talk of removing the black box. What do you say about that this morning?

SECRETARY JOHN KERRY: Well, what's happening is really grotesque. And it is contrary to everything that President Putin and Russia said that they would do. There are-- there are reports of drunken separatist soldiers unceremoniously piling bodies into trucks, removing both bodies, as well as evidence, from the site.

They promised unfettered access, David. And the fact is that, right now, they had 75 minutes on Friday, yesterday, three hours. There were shots fired in the area. The separatists are in control. And it is clear that Russia supports the separatists, supplies the separatists, encourages the separatists, trains the separatists. And Russia needs to step up and make a difference here.

Anyone other than a sociopath or a desperate used car salesman in the waning hours of the month before Christmas could possibly tell so many lies with a straight face. The echo chamber is fully functional in that anything that the coup d'etat - then illegitimate election installed neo-Nazi mob in Kiev pulls out of their asses is then floated in a US corporate media brand name publication - one story that Kerry refers to is in Rupert Murdoch's Wall Street Journal reporting the removal of bodies form the crash site. The propaganda is then launched like a particularly stinky turd into the sewage system on the Sunday morning "news" circuit and will provide the narrative that drives the coming week's relentless drive to frame Putin for the airliner shoot down. The reference to "drunken separatist soldiers" is a nice touch and the incident of the shooting down of a jetliner full of civilians would certainly be the act of a pack of drunken animals - like the one's that won't be talked about in the closed US propaganda system but has been noted by veteran investigative journalist Robert Parry over at the excellent Consortium News in a story entitled "Airline Horror Spurs New Rush to Judgment" from which I excerpt:

Regarding the shoot-down of the Malaysian jetliner on Thursday, I'm told that some CIA analysts cite U.S. satellite reconnaissance photos suggesting that the anti-aircraft missile that brought down Flight 17 was fired by Ukrainian troops from a government battery, not by ethnic Russian rebels who have been resisting the regime in Kiev since elected President Viktor Yanukovych was overthrown on Feb. 22.

According to a source briefed on the tentative findings, the soldiers manning the battery appeared to be wearing Ukrainian uniforms and may have been drinking, since what looked like beer bottles were scattered around the site. But the source added that the information was still incomplete and the analysts did not rule out the possibility of rebel responsibility.

But you can count on it that any alternative explanation other than the preordained conclusion of the fully insane leaders of the empire will never make it onto the TV and as anyone who is an American is aware - it just can't be true if it isn't on the electronic crackpipe.

Then there was Kerry and the authoritarian House Intelligence Committee boss Mike Rogers - a pathological liar - along with the child murdering monster Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netnanyahu (why exactly does the head of a foreign country currently engaged in crimes against humanity merit so much face time on American national television?} on ABC's "This Week". Kerry and the rest of the US political class have gall to continually carp about the possibility of Putin sending weapons to the anti-Kiev, anti-fascist federalists in east Ukraine while at the very same time US taxpayer money continues to be funneled into Israel to conduct barbaric attacks on civilians like that which is currently going on in Gaza but that is another story altogether. There is always the now routine hypocrisy evident and it is especially so when Netanyahu is trotted out on American television to deliver his concocted line of public relations horseshit while his military is engaged in the murder of civilians - that it is on the same show where a fraud like Kerry exploits the civilian deaths of the MH17 passengers is the height of perverse irony.

Kerry along with top guardian of the NSA unconstitutional surveillance and data-mining programs Senator Dianne Feinstein as well as the deranged Representative Michael McCaul of Texas -- who just called for internment camps for migrant children- on CNN's "State of the Union". Then to top it all off there was Kerry and the pudgy virulent anti-Muslim bigot from Long Island Peter King -- a real authority on terrorism as he avidly supported the murderous IRA -- on CBS's "Face the Nation". All that was missing were Dick and Liz Cheney regurgitating their fables about ties between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda and John McCain crapping his Grampers again but they are afforded coverage on a near daily basis as they spew their lies and calling for war, war and even more war.

If one wishes to see an example of the rottenness and soulless decadence of the political class of an empire that has abrogated any semblance of morality as it all begins to collapse in on itself only need turn on their televisions each and every Sunday morning.
