America’s Interventionist Legacy: Failed States

Wherever America intervenes, failed states follow. Pro-Western stooge regimes replace sitting governments. They fail to provide essential functions, services and/or responsibilities required of sovereign independent ones. Failed state examples include Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Haiti, Honduras, Somalia, Yemen and Ukraine. Syria’s government maintains power despite having lost control of much of its territory. Wikipedia lists the following characteristics of failed states: “Loss of control of its territory, or the monopoly ...Read full article...

Obama: U.S. “twisting arms” when countries “don’t do what we need them to do”

The United States is admitedly the bully of the world and there is no need for any American politician to confirm it or deny it, because recent and earlier history cannot be ignored. Today, it is more common than ever before to hear pro-American rhetoric not only justifying the bullying exerted by the United States around the world, but also presenting it as something that is necessary and just. ...Read full article...

U.S. House votes to Repeal Obamacare

In what it would be considered as the first blowback for resulting from Obama’s imperial posturing since he grabbed the presidency in 2008, the U.S. House of Representatives, which is controlled by Republicans, voted 239-186 to say no to the so-called Affordable Care Act. While many people see this vote more as a political stunt than as a vore out of real concern, Republicans argue that the costs of ...Read full article...

Washington’s Ukraine Agenda Risks WW III

Washington planned and implemented Kiev’s coup. Obama admitted US “broker(ing) a deal to transition power in Ukraine.” Code language for ousting democratically elected President Viktor Yanukovych. Replacing him with neo-Nazi mob rule. In December 2013, Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland told Washington-based National Press Club members: “Since Ukraine’s independence in 1991, the United States..invested over $5 billion to assist Ukraine in needs and ...Read full article...

The Passing of American Exceptionalism

How We Became Like All the Other Nations Yes, once upon a time there really was an American exceptionalism. America was a light unto the world. This exceptionalism was a long way from perfect, of course (looking for perfection in a mass of humans is silly), but it was legitimate and substantial. Alas, that was long ago. People who say that American exceptionalism still exists don’t understand what it ...Read full article...

Democracy and Free Speech have been Murdered

Barrett Brown, Kathy Kelly, and Bonny Mahoney are the kind of people who are imprisoned in America.  It is not the perjurers and liars, the torturers, war criminals and mass murderers.  It is the good people who peacefully protest the crimes of those who control the US government and its policies. Since around 1990 I have studied and reported on cases that have resulted in the erosion of the ...Read full article...

America’s Abysmal State

America never was beautiful. Less than ever now during harder than ever hard times since the Great Depression. Permanent wars on humanity at home and abroad. Bipartisan defense of wealth, power and privilege at the expense of beneficial social change. Obama’s State of the Union address combined demagogic rubbish, duplicitous boilerplate, pure fantasy, colossal arrogance, and a contemptible assertion of US supremacy. “…America stands strong and united with our ...Read full article...

Obama’s Phony Middle Class Tax Relief Plan

Obama is a corporate tool. Super-rich Americans never had it better during his tenure. Entirely reflecting anti-populist extremism. Policies hugely benefiting Wall Street. Other corporate favorites. Wealthy investors. America’s privileged class. At the expense of popular needs gone begging. Including so-called financial reform legislation written by Wall Street lawyers. Obamacare drafted by healthcare giants. So-called “grand bargain” help for struggling middle America reflects total capitulation to America’s aristocracy. The ...Read full article...

Ruin Is America’s Future

Washington-based neoconservatives may have set a noose around their necks Neoconservatives arrayed in their Washington offices are congratulating themselves on their success in using the Charlie Hebdo affair to reunite Europe with Washington’s foreign policy. No more French votes with the Palestinians against the Washington-Israeli position. No more growing European sympathy with the Palestinians. No more growing European opposition to launching new wars in the Middle East. No more ...Read full article...

Charlie Hebdo: Repressive Legislation to “Protect our Values”

Civil liberties in America and Europe are gravely threatened. Already seriously eroded. A previous article warned of more to come following last week’s Paris killings. A mid-February White House summit will be held on Countering Violent Extremism. Expect repressive legislation to follow. Other likely policy initiatives. Ones inimical to free society norms and standards. Growing tyranny fast replacing them. MSM reports say little. Only that Western officials want tighter border controls. ...Read full article...

The U.S. Police Threat “Is Too High”

The hypocrisy of American police is beginning to bother even law and order conservatives.  The New York Police Department is rivaling the black community in Ferguson in keeping alive the murders of their community members. We are constantly reminded of how dangerous it is to be a police officer. A total of 50 police officers were reportedly killed last year in the “line of duty,” but the police themselves ...Read full article...

War on War on Black America: What’s in store for 2015

Black Americans are in the eye of the storm. Militarized cops target them nationwide. “(S)tate-sanctioned killings.” Casualties of war. Ongoing daily against black Americans. Compounded by other systemic abuses. Including judicial unfairness. Get tough on crime policies. Mandatory minimum sentences. Guilty unless proved innocent. Three strikes and you’re out. Racist drug laws. Stop-and-frisk. Driving while black. Filling the world’s largest gulag. Mostly with people of color. One in every ...Read full article...

New York Times: Enemy of Truth

The Times is America’s leading establishment publication. Its longstanding history is unprincipled.  Supporting wealth, power and privilege. At the expense of populist interests. Functioning as a quasi-official propaganda ministry. Offering a daily diet of managed news misinformation rubbish. On issues mattering most. No nation in world history committed more high crimes against humanity than America. The Times supports its worst policies. Ignoring rule of law principles. Supporting might over right. ...Read full article...

Obama’s Permanent War Agenda

He continues a longstanding tradition. America’s agenda is permanent war. Lew Rockwell calls it “The Forever War.” Law Professor Marjorie Cohn says it “perpetual war.” So did Gore Vidal in his 2002 book titled “Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace,” saying: “(O)ur for more than half a century have made sure that we are never to be told the truth about anything that our government has done to other people, not to mention ...Read full article...

The US-Israel Alliance: No Palestinian State Solution

America and Israel partner against world peace. Stability. Equity. Justice. Responsible governance. According to fundamental rule of law principles. No two nations operate more ruthlessly. Lawlessly. Recklessly. Reigning terror on adversaries. Supporting like-minded rogue regimes. Both countries oppose Palestinian statehood. Defying international law. Affirming self-determination as a universal right. Wanting Palestinians kept in perpetual bondage. Under occupation harshness. Denied all international law guaranteed rights. Over their lives, welfare and ...Read full article...
