PDF Document The Coming Collapse Chris Hedges via stacey, Monday, May 21 2018, 11:46pm
The Trump administration did not rise, prima facie, like Venus on a half shell from the sea. Donald Trump is the result of a long process of political, cultural and social decay. He is a product of our failed democracy. The longer we perpetuate the fiction that we live in a functioning democracy, that Trump and the political mutations around him are somehow an aberrant deviation that can be vanquished in the next election, the more we will hurtle toward tyranny. The problem is not Trump. It is a political system, dominated by corporate power and the mandarins of the two major political parties, in which we don?t count. We will wrest back political control by dismantling the corporate state, and this means massive and sustained civil disobedience, like that demonstrated by teachers around the country this year. If we do not stand up we will enter a new dark age. (story and 1 attached file)

text Megalomania U.S. Style Hassan Rouhani via justin, Monday, May 21 2018, 10:31pm
Such is the arrogance, hubris and DELUSIONS of the USA that it IMAGINES it can DICTATE policy to other sovereign nations. The results of UNREALISTIC U.S. (pathological) demands, bullying and habitual law breaking have earned America PARIAH status and as we know mutual respect and cooperation is the CIVILISED approach, but what could the WORLD expect from a bunch a violent, mass murdering, uncivilised rustics? No nation, no matter how powerful, could survive without the VOLUNTARY support of other nations, however, today the USA is doing its upmost to ostracise other sovereign nations, which means doom for America.

text Know Who You Are and What You Stand For jude, Sunday, May 20 2018, 8:36pm
Interesting title/statement as the vast majority haven’t a clue, why? Indeed, it is culture that creates identity, everything you think -- language -- words, images and all manner of impressions included, is learned from culture and in that morass of contradictions, inversions, repressions and pathologies, as (all) cultures are inherently sick, is an identity composed of again learned behaviours from culture, transmitted via parents initially then social interaction and all manner of media, which sustain your false cultural identity. In other words your identity is a (cultural) PRODUCT. That is why people are so easily led by cultural forces, they are intrinsically and inextricably bound to it. So, WHO ARE YOU REALLY?

lies.jpg image Consumer Beware: MSNBC and CNN Use CIA Apologists for False Commentary Melvin Goodman via reg, Sunday, May 20 2018, 12:30am
MSNBC prides itself for progressive reporting on national security issues but continues to use apologists for the Central Intelligence Agency in reporting on key intelligence issues. The network’s reliance on former deputy director of the CIA John McLaughlin is an excellent example of the skewed and tailored information that it offers to viewers on matters dealing with CIA. McLaughlin, a former colleague of mine at the CIA who I remember as an amateur magician, regularly pulls the wool over the eyes of such MSNBC veterans as Andrea Mitchell. (story and 2 images)

text The Winning Strategy -- De-centralised Power lex, Sunday, May 20 2018, 12:05am
What do all world governments have in common today? Yes, centralised power regardless of how they obtain it. In the West corruption of candidates by plutocrats usually prevails, in the East force/coercion is usually utilised regardless of appearances and consequent centralised, autocratic power rules with an iron fist, military and police state tactics; nevertheless they ALL share one common characteristic, the centralisation of power and that is why their power is tenuous.

text EU to Switch from US Dollar to Euro on Oil Trades from Iran TruePublica staff report via shirl, Friday, May 18 2018, 11:10pm
Iran, under a renewed threat of U.S. sanctions returning, two months ago decided to switch using the greenback as a currency in its imports and banned all traders from using USD. A directive came from the Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade. Iran was being backed into a corner and was facing a situation of having has no access to dollar transactions because of the sanctions. Hence, it decided to remove that threat. Now instead of using banks, it has to use a network of foreign exchange bureaus and even gone the distance by saying it wants no transactions at all in USD.

bloodstained_flag.jpg image How Long Will We Pretend That Palestinians Don't Exist? Robert Fisk via jane, Friday, May 18 2018, 10:00pm
Monstrous. Frightful. Wicked. It’s strange how the words just run out in the Middle East today. Sixty Palestinians dead in one day and two-thousand-four-hundred wounded, more than half by live fire. The figures are an outrage, a turning away from morality and civilisation, a thoroughly disgraceful crime for any modern army to perpetrate. (story and 1 image)

text The Gaza Massacre and its Repercussions luke, Thursday, May 17 2018, 8:06pm
If the moral MAJORITY of the WORLD fails to act on the heinous crimes against humanity perpetrated in Gaza by Israel -- clearly a rogue terrorist State, as is America -- then we ALL LOSE. The arrogant criminal ruling elites of the world that are so due to the fact that they have been committing crimes and waging wars of aggression based on LIES, pretexts and orchestrated false flags for nearly two decades with IMPUNITY, would consider inaction by the public a carte blanche to commit further more heinous crimes (if that is possible) at any time and place THEY choose, including against their own populations, not necessarily in an extreme violent sense but more of the same surveillance and police State oppression until ALL our hard won liberties, rights and freedoms that our fathers’ fought and died to preserve, would be FORFEITED.

We labour today under the weight of countless tyrannies, large and small, carried out in the name of the national good by an elite class of government officials who are largely insulated from the ill effects of their actions, which inflict hardship on an overtaxed, over regulated, and under represented populace.

Typical of the mindset of corporate media reporting on what happened in Gaza on Monday as Israeli soldiers killed more than 50 protesting Palestinians, is this tweet from CNN. It says: “Death toll rises to at least 52 people during clashes along the border fence between Israel and Gaza, Palestinian officials say. More than 2,400 people have been injured.” CNN’s new slogan is “ #FactsFirst.” (story and 1 image)

text The Mass Murdering U.S. Military Takes Us Through the Gates of Hell Tom Engelhardt via justin, Tuesday, May 15 2018, 9:13pm
As I was putting the finishing touches on my new book, the Costs of War Project at Brown University’s Watson Institute published an estimate of the taxpayer dollars that will have gone into America’s war on terror from September 12, 2001, through fiscal year 2018. That figure: a cool $5.6 trillion (including the future costs of caring for our war vets). On average, that’s at least $23,386 per taxpayer.

Slaughter of the Innocent by 'Zion-Nazis' image Killing Gaza The Israeli Perpetrated Palestinian Genocide Chris Hedges via james, Tuesday, May 15 2018, 8:31pm
The slow but steady genocide of Palestinians MUST CEASE. The criminal outrage of Israel slaughtering UNARMED Palestinian protesters exercising their inalienable rights to free speech and peaceful protest today demonstrates that the UN and Hague courts are nothing more than facilitators of CRIME perpetrated by criminal states -- SELF-EVIDENT!

There is no hiding from REALITY; the MORAL MAJORITY of the world are now required to put an end to this slaughter as international and state institutions have clearly proven themselves to be CORRUPT and rotten to the core. The LAW and civilisation DEMAND JUSTICE. Allowing state criminals to flout laws with impunity is intolerable and begs for totalitarian and fascist rule, as is demonstrated by Israel today. The slaughter and OPPRESSION must END if we value our own freedoms, as these occurrences empower criminal elites to apply their criminal practices on ALL -- that means everyone.

As the Trump administration charges forward with its war on science by canceling a "crucial" carbon monitoring system at NASA, scientists and climate experts are sounding alarms over atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) that just surpassed a "troubling" threshold for the first time in human history.

My daughter was born in the 22nd year of the Forever War, which stands today upon its 27th year and counting. People who should know better may tell you the war started only 17 years ago, after September 11, but those people are likely trying to sell you something, and it's probably more war.

Israel attacked alleged Iranian military positions in Syria on Tuesday, just one hour after Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the nuclear deal with Tehran. Are these big steps forward in the plan by Israel’s leader Benjamin Netanyahu and his ally Trump to provoke a major war with Iran? (story and 1 image)

text Iran: the Simple FACTS Are ... justin, Sunday, May 13 2018, 1:03am
Firstly, it is Saudi-supported Sunni extremists which form most of the WORLD’S Islamic terrorist groups NOT Iranian Shias. However, as the US supports Saudi Arabia, which now is allied with US ally Israel -- all three criminal (historically proven) nations have one thing in common, they all detest Iran which is why Iran is painted as the nation that supports terrorism NOT guilty Saudi Arabia, as is easily historically verified and obvious.
