Former US Defense Secretary Warns of Potential Nuclear Armageddon

William Perry served as Clinton’s defense secretary from 1994 – 1997, currently the Nuclear Risk Reduction and Preventive Defense Project co-director. Paul Craig Roberts posted Sputnik News’ report on Perry’s warning about reckless US policy, heading things toward a possible “nuclear apocalypse.” Roberts, myself and others warn often about reckless US policymakers risking possible nuclear war with Russia and/or China. Their rage for unchallenged global dominance may kill us ...Read full article...

Fear-mongering is longstanding US policy

It is facilitated by false flags – state-sponsored terrorism such as 9/11, which is Exhibit A. When well-executed, these schemes always convince a naive public to believe what they’re told, not realizing they’re being duped, manipulated to support what harms their security and well-being. Various polls conducted days after the Paris attacks showed most Americans support using US combat troops against ISIS in Syria and Iraq. A Gallup poll conducted ...Read full article...

Full-Blown Tyranny in America Approaches

Post-9/11, Bush administration and congressional neocons took full advantage, declaring war on humanity at home and abroad – turning America into a police state and a de facto tyranny. Republican and Democrat presidential aspirants support escalated war on terrorism – code language for greater homeland and foreign wars on humanity, including against remaining fundamental freedoms, disappearing in plain sight, perhaps entirely gone no matter who succeeds Obama in January ...Read full article...

Neocons Call for Invading Syria

Lindsey Graham and the rest of the neocons cannot wait to see nuclear war happening and the US military, as expected, will not engage in war against Russia, Iran and Hezbollah. Oh, and China, who has now said that because of the death of a Chinese citizen in Paris, they are also in the fight against ISIS. In the wake of last Friday’s Paris false flag, it didn’t take ...Read full article...

Donald Trump Embraces Gun Ownership after Paris attacks

Gun-free zones don’t reduce crime, but they do encourage criminals to kill mercilessly. The bomb attacks carried out in Paris last Friday have made two points more evident than ever before. First, a disarmed population is a vulnerable population; and second, an Orwellian State with round the clock surveillance cannot protect us from crime. The only way in which an Orwellian State has a slight chance of preventing some crimes ...Read full article...

The War On Terror Is The Hoax Foundation Of The Police/Spy State

Today, not even an idiot believes the official explanation. he “war on terror” was a hoax. Americans were deceived by policymakers, who are pursuing a hegemonic agenda. The American people were too trusting and too gullible and, consequently, Americans were easily betrayed by Washington and by the presstitute media. The consequences of the deceit, gullibility, and betrayal are horrendous for Americans, for millions of peoples in the Middle East, ...Read full article...

Why the U.S. Debt Ceiling is a Farce

The U.S. government just increased its credit limit… On Monday, President Obama signed a budget deal that raised the debt ceiling from $18.5 trillion to $20 trillion. In theory, the debt ceiling limits how much money the U.S. government can borrow. The debt ceiling is now twice as high as it was when Obama took office in 2008. The truth is, the debt ceiling doesn’t actually limit government spending. ...Read full article...

The Pentagon is a notorious sinkhole of waste, fraud and abuse

Remember earlier reports about $7,600 coffee makers, $640 toilet seats, $436 dollar hammers and numerous other US military items, including hugely overpriced weapons systems, some for ones never used or don’t work. The Pentagon is a notorious sinkhole of waste, fraud and abuse. Trillions of dollars are unaccounted for. Oversight is entirely lacking. America’s war machine does what it pleases. Since 1996, the Defense Department was never held accountable ...Read full article...

The Fed’s Easy Money Has Created a Takeover Mania

Instead of investing to build their businesses, companies are taking a shortcut to growth by buying other companies. The deals keep getting bigger…and one of the gravest financial warnings of 2015 keeps growing in relevance. Last month, legendary investor Carl Icahn publically warned that cheap money is fueling a bubble in dealmaking. Icahn said: …hat do with the money is almost perverse. They just go in and buy another company ...Read full article...

US On Road To Third World

n January 6, 2004, Senator Charles Schumer and I challenged the erroneous idea that jobs offshoring was free trade in a New York Times op-ed. Our article so astounded economists that within a few days Schumer and I were summoned to a Brookings Institution conference in Washington, DC, to explain our heresy. In the nationally televised conference, I declared that the consequence of jobs offshoring would be that the US would ...Read full article...

US Caught with its pants down in Syria

Caught with its pants down in Syria, the US government is making a fool of itself. By attempting to mischaracterize Russia’s actions against ISIS in Syria, Washington has admitted that the terrorists from outside Syria, who are attempting to overthrow the elected government of Syria, are “our guys.” In an interview with Fox “News,” a senior US government official said: “Putin is deliberately targeting our forces. Our guys are ...Read full article...

The Fate of Children in the American Police State

John Whitehead points out in his article that American public schools are like prisons. The wardens of the schools focus on punishment and ruining the lives of children, not on education. Parents who can afford it put their children in private schools, and those who can’t homeschool their children if they have the capability and do not have to work several part-time jobs in order to make ends meet. ...Read full article...

America’s Corrupted Political Process

America’s political process is too corrupted and dysfunctional to fix. Democracy is pure fantasy. Money-controlled duopoly power rules. People have no say whatever. All candidates march to the same drummer, differences among them too minor to matter, Republicans interchangeable with Democrats, in lockstep on issues mattering most, their agendas belying their rhetoric. Campaigning involves delivering prepackaged, prescripted demagogic sound bites, catchy one-liners, slogans and other rehearsed rhetoric – stringing ...Read full article...

Washington Persecutes America’s Greatest Patriots

John Kiriakou is an American patriot who informed us of the criminal behavior of illegal and immoral US “cloak and dagger” operations that were bringing dishonor to our country. His reward was to be called a “traitor” by the idiot conservative Republicans and sentenced to prison by the corrupt US government. Manning revealed US war crimes and after years of illegal pre-trial prison abuse was sentenced to 35 years ...Read full article...
