Will Trump Defy Expectations and Be a Peace President?

It’s hardly likely given America’s rage for endless wars, gorging on them. Neocons infesting Washington demand them and Trump may have to give it to them. Enemies are invented to accommodate them. War profiteers depend on them. The indifferent public does nothing to demand they stop. Yet what US leader in memory said getting along with Russia “is a good thing, not a bad thing. Only ‘stupid’ people, or ...Read full article...

Attempted Coup Against Trump Continues

Pro-Hillary, anti-Trump coup plotters keep throwing endless amounts of dirt against the wall, hoping something sticks to oust him or undermines his presidency if removal efforts fail. Various attempts so far fizzled, a final hurdle to cross on January 6 when Congress convenes a joint session to certify November’s presidential election results and make Trump’s ascension to power official, together with Vice President-elect Mike Pence. Friday is the last ...Read full article...

The “Russia Attacks Vermont” Fake News Story

Sound absurd? It is, part of intense Russia bashing, a political and economic assault via fake news, risking something more serious. On New Year’s eve, the neocon/CIA-connected Washington Post published an updated version of its previous fake news story. The earlier version claimed Russian hackers penetrated the US electric grid – a Big Lie. The new version says it hacked a Vermont utility, citing the usual unnamed US sources ...Read full article...

Barack Obama’s Deplorable 8-year Tenure

Throughout his deplorable 8-year tenure, Barack Obama broke every major promise made, including pledging: hope and change; peace in our time; observance of democratic values; ending torture, illegal spying and detention without trial; “a new era of openness;” helping Israel and Palestine “fulfill their national goals: two states living side by side in peace and security;” on Afghanistan (October 27, 2007): “I will promise you this, that if we ...Read full article...

Were CIA Dirty Hands Behind Assassination of Russia’s Ambassador to Turkey?

Russia’s investigation will get to the bottom of what happened, why and who was responsible. Though unknown at this point, it has the earmarks of a CIA plot to undermine growing Russian/Turkish ties, notably their cooperation in Syria, adversely affecting Washington’s regional imperial agenda. The assassination happened in the wake of Aleppo’s liberation, a major defeat for Washington, NATO, Israel and other rogue Middle East states. It came on ...Read full article...

Pro-Hillary Dark Forces Plot Anti-Trump Coup

It shouldn’t surprise. Since the deplorable Clinton co-presidency, America has been on a slippery slope toward full-blown tyranny – notably post-the-9/11 mother of all false flags. It was followed by an array of police state laws, new ones recently enacted, flagrant constitutional violations, media scoundrels silent on an unprecedented abuse of power. McCarthyism is back on steroids. Truth-telling is now considered fake news and/or pro-Russian. We’re perilously close to ...Read full article...

US and Rogue Allies Frantic Over Losing Aleppo

The crucially important battle for Aleppo and surrounding areas is nearly won – Syria, Russia and allied forces prevailing over America, NATO, Israel and other Middle East rogue allies. Liberating Syria entirely has miles to go, but things are heading in the right direction, Obama’s imperial agenda sustaining a major body blow, not going down easily. On December 7, a joint US, UK French, German and Canadian statement on ...Read full article...

Barack Obama defends his Failed Defense Policy

Barack Obama laughed at Donald Trump when he said he would keep manufacturing jobs in the United States. He laughed when Trump claimed he would have Carrier stay in the country. He laughed again when he said he would negotiate with other companies to keep them from going abroad. Now that Trump prevented Carrier and Ford from moving out and as he negotiates with other companies, even before he ...Read full article...

Trump Names Hawkish General As Defense Secretary

Does Mattis’ selection indicate that Trump intends to be America’s latest warrior president, renouncing peace for endless conflicts? At a Thursday Cincinnati rally, Trump announced retired Marine Corps General James Mattis as defense secretary – calling him “the closest thing we have to (WW II era) General George Patton.” Earlier he tweeted he’s “being considered for Secretary of Defense…A true General’s General!” He last served as US CENTCOM head ...Read full article...

More Tales from the Election That Wouldn’t End

Police State Tactics Against Dakota Access Pipeline Protesters

Democracy in America serves its privileged few alone, public needs and welfare largely ignored, entirely when conflicting with powerful monied interests. They win every time at the expense of peace, equity and justice – imperial wars, corporate favoritism and police state viciousness assuring it. Oil pipelines notoriously leak, polluting the landscape and drinking water, harming public health and well-being. Just societies would prohibit them, renouncing fossil fuels and hugely ...Read full article...
