I am guilty–that Apple customer is me. As many of you already know; I collected donations after my last iPod was stolen. I chose the iPod because of the return on media for dollar spent–simply it was the best suited product for the job. After having it for 19 months the camera went completely black and I was left with just the front-facing camera. Since I am not a big fan of selfies this was a BIG problem. I had to rent a camera when I went to #CGI2014. I then went to the Apple store in Grand Central Terminal; their solution was to offer me a discount on buying a new one. A SLAP in the face! Well all know by now that Apple products become obsolete with each update and in fact this is part of their business model. While mainstream media might scoff at the idea; we all know the demise of Apple is not far behind #BendGate. After visiting Apple store in GCT; I went to SOHO store. I could barely enter because it was so packed with people seeking repairs. Next stop was calling APL-CARE; where with my loud Brooklyn mouth I was expedited to a “Senior Advisor”. I was having a hard time until I dropped “I’m a journalist.” “Please hold sir” said Senior Advisor Emily Reger. When she returned to the line I was told I was being given a free repair. I’ll let you assume the reason behind that. I went to the Apple store today and made this video about #BendGate and lack of customer service on the part of Apple. I was inspired by these “idiots” as the MSM refers to them. I prefer another moniker. Great job guys! While I might not agree with your tactics; I appreciate your muckraking spirit!@RT_com released a #BendGate story today stating “controlling the press” was a key strategy for Apple

The Islamic militant group ISIS, formerly known as Al-Qaeda in Iraq, and recently rebranded as the so called Islamic State, is the stuff of nightmares. They are ruthless, fanatical, killers, on a mission, and that mission is to wipe out anyone and everyone, from any religion or belief system and to impose Shari’ah law. The mass executions, beheadings and even crucifixions that they are committing as they work towards this goal are flaunted like badges of pride, video taped and uploaded for the whole world to see. This is the new face of evil.
Would it interest you to know who helped these psychopaths rise to power? Would it interest you to know who armed them, funded them and trained them? Would it interest you to know why?
This story makes more sense if we start in the middle, so we’ll begin with the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
The Libyan revolution was Obama’s first major foreign intervention. It was portrayed as an extension of the Arab Spring, and NATO involvement was framed in humanitarian terms.
The fact that the CIA was actively working to help the Libyan rebels topple Gaddafi was no secret, nor were the airstrikes that Obama ordered against the Libyan government. However, little was said about the identity or the ideological leanings of these Libyan rebels. Not surprising, considering the fact that the leader of the Libyan rebels later admitted that his fighters included Al-Qaeda linked jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq. [...]

As I was writing an article regarding the tragedy that was unfolding in Mariupol on May 9 – the most revered day of the calendar celebrated in former Soviet countries – Donetsk and Lugansk conducted their referendums, resulting in a 90% vote for independence from the new Ukrainian regime.
It would be very naive to expect Russia to take these two republics under its wing. The Russian Federation does not appear to have any intention to attach anymore territory, and still urges civilized dialogue between the South-East and Kiev.
Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that any dialogue is possible after so much spilling of innocent blood. Kiev chose the politics of intimidation and terror, intertwined with a patent mistrust. What took place in Odessa is called “Red Line 1”. Although this horrific and inhumane action was covered by some media, the entire world still refused to react, as moral obligations would suggest they should, by stopping the junta from spilling the blood of its own people and calling out for justice. So the junta crossed another red line.
Another massacre in Mariupol (Donetsk’s province) was personally initiated and supervised by Oleg Lyashko, a Presidential candidate.
He actually replaced the commander of this “operation” with himself. After a call from the chief of police in Mariupol, Lyashko gave the order to invade Mariupol. He hoped to shine his political star by achieving his own victory on May 9, the day when people celebrate the Victory in Great Fatherland war over fascism. Lyashko personally gave an order to shoot all the “vatniks” and “colorads” (insulting words for Russians and anti-fascists). Within the order was the specific task of shooting any soldier who refused to participate. Later, seeing how his “anti-terrorist operation” descended into an absolute fiasco, Lyashko ran away from Mariupol.
The Chief of police in Mariupol, Androshuk, after the initial phone conversation with Lyashko, gave orders to his officers to conduct a punitive operation of punishment against the Mariupol people. The entire body of police refused to follow the order. Androschuk shot one of the officers, triggering a revolt among the remaining police. Androschuk escaped into his office and called the “Right Sector” for help.
While the people in the city were celebrating Victory Day, the invaders entered peaceful Mariupol much as the Nazis did 70 years ago. The punitive group, battalions “Dnipro” and ”Azov”, had assault rifles, machine guns, grenade launchers, BMP 9 + 1 APC, heavy armoured vehicles and tanks, and combat infantry.
It is fair to call them fascists.
They moved close to the police department building and soon opened fire from HGV, machine guns, and grenade launchers. Some of Right Sectors went from house to house and shot at the windows where people filmed everything on cameras and phones. They blocked the area around police station.
During combat, Androschuk snuck out of the building through a corridor. But in the street, he was captured by local people. His fate is presently unknown.
Unarmed civilians were standing around shouting: ”Fascists”, “Get out of our city”, “They are killing our police!”, “How would you look at your Mom’s eyes?” National Guard gunmen shot civilians on sight to stop them from approaching the police department building. Police officers became “terrorists” for only one reason: THEY REFUSED TO RAISE WEAPONS AGAINST THEIR FELLOW COUNTRYMEN. There were about 50 people at the police station, including women.
Next, the Right Sector used the same tactic as they did in Odessa. They blocked the building and burned it down to the ground.
The police station was completely destroyed by fire. Ambulances rushing to the scene to rescue the wounded were greeted by bursts of gunfire from the fascists.
During the day, gunmen in black uniforms shot and intimidated citizens.
Civilians began to oppose the fascist invaders. The fascists lost one BMP. Several members of the punitive “Azov” and ”Dnipro” died. Then the fascists (no other word can be used toward these creatures) found themselves without any commanders and tried to leave the city. Actually, they ran away.
It is still unclear how many people were killed in Mariupol. The man in this video claimed that there were over one hundred victims.
Where will the next “red line” take place? And how many more “red lines” does the World need in order to wake up? This is not a war between Russians and Ukrainians, and this is not a war of all against all. This is a war of Russian people for their identity and freedom. Now when the most hated thing, as fascism is for Russians, has come into our homes, people need to determine what values they are standing up for and what kind of future we see for ourselves, and who they are – Russian people, meaning the spiritual condition, not necessary nationality.
This is the war of the Russian world against the Nazis. This is a Nazi’s war against the civilian population.
This is also a time for the West to clarify for themselves who they want to be with and what kind of future they choose.
On May 11, the people of Donetsk and Lugansk provinces took part in Referendums and declared their Independence.
On May 11, a funeral took place for 20 killed people in Mariupol.
This is a holiday with teary eyes…

[Exclusive footage] Rebirth of Fascism. U.S. warmongers along with EU/NATO politicians have installed (through violent, artificial revolution) a pro-fascist government in Ukraine and are now trying to start a civil war within the country.
Over 900,000 Ukrainians have already left the country within 2 months of EuroMaidan and fled to Russia. 2,500 fled to Belarus. This is just the beginning.
