  1. The double standard propaganda is pretty obvious when you hear the stories together like that , the catch word is …intelligence….oxymoron if i have ever heard one …. Thank you Catlin and Tim …

  2. I don't know who to believe. (/s) Is that "credible evidence" at the level of that used for yellowcake? Baby incubators opened and the babies thrown around? Powell-at-the-UN levels? The US is so fond of its own use of false flags to drum up support for their military excursions that you can't believe a word they say. Their past behavior defies credulity now.

  3. A friend of mine believes all the lies about Russia/China the western media feeds him with no evidence to support it. When I question the veracity of his claims he says that “it was determined” by the west.
    I have a hard time believing people can be that naive because I see right through those lies. The west doesn’t practice journalism anymore they are all propagandist and stenographers. Sad!

  4. I have a feeling that Tim Foley does a different voice for each character when reading to little ones. What a terrific presentation voice! 📚 📖📚
