Israeli Judaization Master Plans

Israel is a racist police state. Zionist ideology espouses Jewish superiority, specialness, and uniqueness. It claims Jews are God’s “chosen people.” It’s uncomfortably close to Nazi Aryan dogma. Master race notions are troubling. They reflect racist extremism. Israel is a prime example. It calls itself a democratic Jewish state. Democracy is nowhere in sight. Jews alone have rights. Increasing numbers have limited ones. Neoliberal harshness denies them. Arab citizens ...Read full article...

United States “threatens” to remove all troops from Afghanistan

Wait, isn’t that what everyone wants to see? Wishful thinking does work, doesn’t it? Of course, the so-called threat is nothing more than rhetoric.

Sabotaging Rapprochement with Iran

Multiple previous rounds of nuclear talks failed. Washington orchestrated failure. Israel exerted enormous behind the scenes pressure. So did AIPAC. On November 20, negotiators on both sides meet again. Will this time be different? It remains to be seen what happens. Prospects aren’t promising. Iran’s been offered little in return for major concessions. More on the resumed talks below. US/Israeli anti-Iranian sentiment is longstanding.

Obamacare Fix: Millions of Uninsured and Underinsured Americans

Obamacare is rife with problems. It leaves millions uninsured. It leaves millions more underinsured. It makes healthcare coverage more expensive. Mandated market rules include rude awakenings. Many consumers are left paying much more than they thought. Most plans include huge deductibles and co-pays. Doing so means tens of millions face unaffordable out-of-pocket costs. Federal subsidies for America’s poor are woefully inadequate. Millions live from paycheck to paycheck. Limited resources ...Read full article...

Dick Cheney: “Canada is Too Dangerous”

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a ripoff. It’s a boon to healthcare providers. It scams most enrollees.

Hundreds of thousands who had healthcare have lost it, millions can’t even register online. The Affordable Care Act is not universal as promised. It leaves millions of Americans uninsured. It leaves most others woefully underinsured. US healthcare already is unaffordable. Obamacare makes it more so. It lawlessly invades privacy. It compromises a fundamental human right. Martin Luther King once said:11 “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in heath ...Read full article...

Israel-Saudi Arabia: An Unholy Alliance

Israel and Saudi Arabia are rogue states writ large. They’re two of the world’s worst. They deplore democratic values. They spurn rule of law principles. They commit horrendous human and civil rights abuses. They’re responsible for daily crimes against humanity. They partner with Washington’s imperial wars. They’re an odd couple. They’re strange bedfellows. Perhaps they’re joining forces. Formal relations aren’t maintained. Back channel secret ones substitute. On October 2, ...Read full article...
