    PayPal Blocks Payments To Anti-War Voices

    The Jimmy Dore Show


    Blogger Caitlin Johnstone recently reported that online payment service PayPal had begun blocking payments to independent media sites known for promoting anti-war messages, particularly with regard to the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Caleb Maupin as well as MintPress News have been targeted by PayPal and told that they will no longer be able to receive funds from fans and supporters via the service.

    Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss this chilling development in the tech industry’s push to limit free speech and silence voices that counter the establishment message on key issues like war and peace.

    Please note, i am not anti Russian, nor pro Ukrainian ...
    But any country invading another ...
    Is a bridge too far in this day and age!

    Below a closer look ...


    EXCLUSIVE:
    One-on-one with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky

    60 Minutes Australia


    When Russian dictator Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine, he arrogantly expected to conquer it easily. He was wrong. Despite being badly outnumbered and completely outgunned, Ukrainian soldiers have shown extraordinary fight. And leading the resistance has been their President Volodymyr Zelensky. His transformation from former actor and comedian to hero of the free world is inspirational. As one observer put it, he's Charlie Chaplin morphed into Winston Churchill. Now he wants to talk to Australia, and he's invited us into his secret inner sanctum to explain the horror show that is this ongoing war.

    What gets lost in all the commentary is what the Ukrainian people themselves want. And that is to be a truly sovereign nation. They want to be free and are being bombarded for it.

    Are they truly 'anti-war' when it comes to Ukraine though? It's a sticky sticky issue, where someone can make a statement that is easily misconstrued to be pro-war. That is likely what is happening here.

    There's also this enduring idea about the badness of the American military industrial complex, which is correct, but fails to take into account that other countries, like Russia, are also problematic.

    I second that many times over. If Ukraine is 'just a concept', how many other countries would fall under that rubric? How many more former Soviet areas are just 'concepts'?

    Folks say Russia used to rule that land. Well England used to rule this one. Are we just a 'concept'?

    The excuses are sad and ludicrous.

    As the team returns for their third year to investigate the high strangeness of Skinwalker Ranch, they find new evidence of a mysterious anomaly in the sky one mile above the Triangle Area that may be connected to something deep within the Mesa.

    George Knapp - Secret of Skinwalker Ranch… Latest Update

    COAST TO COAST AM - April 2022. George Knapp welcomed Brandon Fugal, owner of Utah's Skinwalker Ranch, along with members of his team from the Secret of Skinwalker Ranch television show: Thomas Winterton, Eric Bard, Kaleb Bench, and Dr. Christopher Lee. Calling the group's appearance "historic," Fugal said "I don't think anyone would have imagined in years past a broadcast live from the most scientifically studied paranormal hotspot." As researchers and experiencers of the paranormal, Fugal went on, none of the team ever expected to be on a TV show, so the recent media focus on their work is new for all of them. Fugal explained that one of the conditions agreed to by its network is that nothing about the show is ever to be scripted, planned, or contrived.
