text Israel to Provoke Iran After Trump Ditches Nuclear Deal Jake Johnson via shirl, Wednesday, May 9 2018, 2:01am
In the immediate wake of U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement that America is withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, Israel reportedly carried out airstrikes in Syria and began mobilizing its defense forces over what it claimed were "abnormal movements of Iranian forces."

text The West’s Finance-Capitalist Road Rides on Parasitic DEBT Michael Hudson via burt, Monday, May 7 2018, 1:17am
Volumes II and III of Marx’s Capital describe how debt grows exponentially, burdening the economy with carrying charges. This overhead is subjecting today’s Western finance-capitalist economies to austerity, shrinking living standards and capital investment while increasing their cost of living and doing business. That is the main reason why they are losing their export markets and becoming de-industrialized.

text Peace Dreams shirl, Sunday, May 6 2018, 3:49am
Reality is very sobering, like how does anyone hope to see peace when western leaders talk of nothing but war, division, aggression and conflict? Quite simply, PEACE is something earned by POPULATIONS not war mongering puppet leaders serving elites that profit from war, destruction and theft.

text American Pathocracy lex, Sunday, May 6 2018, 2:52am
The American ‘Pathocracy’ is characterised by extremely flawed and grossly incompetent pathological leadership, which spews and rants all manner of idiocies, lies, delusions that transfix a pathological society which feeds from the sickness which has come to full bloom today. This clearly social disease, which screams loud and clear to other nations not yet infected, manifests and is personified by US president Trump, whose primary function is to create psychological chaos, DISTRACT and confuse, thereby disempowering the masses while the nefarious DEEP STATE continues with its psychopathic agenda of perpetual interventionist wars, resource theft and mass murder, which agenda hasn’t missed a beat since the presidency of Bill Clinton.

text When Orwell’s 1984 Stopped Being Prophetic Fiction Jonathan Cook via reg, Saturday, May 5 2018, 1:17am
This is the moment when a newspaper claiming to uphold that most essential function in a liberal democracy – acting as a watchdog on power – formally abandons the task. This is the moment when it positively embraces the role of serving as a mouthpiece for the government. The tell is in one small word in a headline on today’s Guardian’s front page: “Revealed”.

text Stop the Madness of a War With Iran Medea Benjamin via jane, Saturday, May 5 2018, 12:57am
The Iran nuclear deal is on the verge of sinking on May 12, when Donald Trump will decide whether or not to waive the nuclear-related sanctions, as the deal calls for. While the world is cheering the upcoming meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (including Trump’s fans calling for a Nobel Peace Prize), Trump is needlessly and recklessly driving our nation down a path toward war with Iran—and neither Congress nor the American people seem to care.

putin_mouse2.jpg image Israel Strikes at Iranian Targets -- Putin will Cave as USUAL jake, Friday, May 4 2018, 2:13am
Analysts have know for some time the greater Middle East plan is to attack Iran. Washington has enlisted Israel to do its dirty work as Syria has proven that jihadi proxy fighters are ineffective against real militaries. And so Israel with assurance of support should it be needed from Washington has engaged Iran directly in Syria. (story and 1 image)

text How False Flag Operations Are Carried Out Today Philip Giraldi via gus, Thursday, May 3 2018, 1:56am
Today’s false flag operations are generally carried out by intelligence agencies and non-government actors including terrorist groups, but they are only considered successful if the true attribution of an action remains secret. There is nothing honorable about them as their intention is to blame an innocent party for something that it did not do. There has been a lot of such activity lately and it was interesting to learn by way of a leak that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has developed a capability to mimic the internet fingerprints of other foreign intelligence services.

text The REAL Target justin, Wednesday, May 2 2018, 1:44am
While the Media distracts with Trump and North Korea let’s not forget the deal the USA made with Israel -- what deal you say? Well, to initiate an attack on Iran based on some false flag or pretext. Whenever the US talks peace it means war, somewhere, you can always depend on more illegal AGGRESSION from Washington while neocons hold sway. Peace is a meaningless word in today’s American lexicon, obvious. But the masses are about to be conned YET AGAIN.

text De-escalation With North Korea, Escalation With Iran But ALWAYS Aggression from USA Patrick Cockburn via gus, Monday, Apr 30 2018, 3:02am
As a journalist, I have always dreaded reporting on meetings between world leaders billed as “historic” or “momentous” or just plain “significant”. Such pretensions are usually phoney or, even if something of interest really does happen, its importance is exaggerated or oversimplified.

Who could have written a better agreement for the first meeting between South Korean President Moon Jae-In and North Korean Chairman Kim Jung Un -- the first time a leader from North Korea has set foot in South Korea in 65 years -- since the end of the Korean War.

The Turkish government has made the decision to repatriate all of its gold reserves that are currently housed in the US Federal Reserve System (FRS). Overall Turkey was storing 220 tonnes, valued at $25.3 billion, in the US, which it repossessed on April 19, 2018.

text The Lies Behind America’s Wars Jon Basil Utley via claire, Friday, Apr 27 2018, 12:37am
Official Washington and those associated with it have misrepresented the facts numerous times in the service of military actions that might not otherwise have taken place. In the Middle East, these interventions have killed hundreds of thousands of innocent Arab civilians, brought chaos to Iraq and Libya, and led to the expulsion of a million Christians from communities where they have lived since biblical times.

text The DNC Circus and 'Russiagate' Thomas L. Knapp via jane, Thursday, Apr 26 2018, 11:58pm
April 20 is cannabis culture’s high holiday, and the Democratic National Committee celebrated it with fervor this year: Blaze up, get silly, file a bizarre lawsuit accusing the Russian government, Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, and transparency activist group WikiLeaks of conspiring to steal an election.

text Do YOU Like what You SEE Today? jaxie, Wednesday, Apr 25 2018, 4:42am
People forget that the anti-Vietnam war movement was Global with its strongest front from Western nations, the result, the cessation of a thoroughly illegal, mass murdering, (indiscriminate) carpet bombing American war on Indo-China, which killed at least 6 million INNOCENT peasants and civilians, YOU see, people had a conscience back then and were willing to participate daily in their democracies.

text The Driving Force in Washington jill, Monday, Apr 23 2018, 2:38am
George H Bush once referred to the neocons as the “crazies,” indeed an apt description as it was/is the neocons that have involved America in numerous criminal wars since their initial false flag, 9/11, utilised as they themselves published, “a new Pearl Harbour” to justify their invasive perpetual war doctrine to achieve world hegemony and steal resources.

text Trump and Kim -- Success -- Not a Snow Flake’s Chance jake, Saturday, Apr 21 2018, 3:12am
Whether it’s the 24 hour news cycle that wipes popular memory or the ever-present distractions and distortions of the real by the mass media/propaganda apparatus of the west, which confuses and blinds deduction, sense and reason, the talks between buffoon Trump, who desperately seeks recognition/adoration (NPD) and would do ANYTHING (including WWIII) to achieve it, or Kim’s rather astute Asian pragmatic, tactical approach (Kim earned his tertiary degree in Switzerland) covering all bases, including a negotiated peace deal between the two Koreas as fall-back, the upcoming talks between the two leaders is doomed, but why?

text The search for truth in the rubble of Douma – one doctor’s doubts over the chemical attack Robert Fisk via claire, Thursday, Apr 19 2018, 3:37am
This is the story of a town called Douma, a ravaged, stinking place of smashed apartment blocks – and of an underground clinic whose images of suffering allowed three of the Western world’s most powerful nations to bomb Syria last week. There’s even a friendly doctor in a green coat who, when I track him down in the very same clinic, cheerfully tells me that the “gas” videotape which horrified the world – despite all the doubters – is perfectly genuine.

text The Truth About Illegal US Involvement in Syria Whitney Webb via gail, Thursday, Apr 19 2018, 3:12am
After the U.S. launched “limited” airstrikes on Friday against Syria, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley announced that the U.S. will maintain its illegal presence in Syria until U.S. goals in the area are fulfilled, opening the door for the U.S. occupation to continue indefinitely.
