If you’re skeptical of western power structures and you’ve ever engaged in online political debate for any length of time, the following has definitely happened to you. You find yourself going back and forth with one of those high-confidence, low-information establishment types who’s promulgating a dubious mainstream narrative, whether that be about politics, war, Julian Assange, or whatever. At some point they make an assertion which you know to be false–publicly available information invalidates the claim they’re making.

Although you may not see it, millions of lives are disrupted by violence everyday. War, homicide, terrorism, suicide, and sexual assault can be found across the world in various degrees; but, as Visual Capitalist`s Katie Jones details below, while certain types of violence can incur costs that result in personal traumas, violence can also create significant economic disruptions.

Phil Butler - The Greeks are demanding fair reparations from Germany over Nazi theft and atrocities committed during World War II. India says the British robbed their country of trillions over 200 years and never gave anything back. Descendants of Africans trafficked to and enslaved as a result of the Atlantic slave trade have never been compensated in the least. Meanwhile, the winners of wars made off like bandits with war booty. I say the liberal world order should ante up, not only for distant war debts but for screwing the peace the world deserves.

Update: As the Epstein interview scandal spreads, SkyNews reports that Prince Andrew`s PR advisor Jason Stein has now resigned: Meanwhile, as Bloomberg notes, "Prince Andrew’s attempt to explain away his friendship with pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein in a high-profile TV interview degenerated into a farce that threatens to be the British royal family’s biggest public relations disaster since its handling of the death of Princess Diana in 1997."

"They’re stronger anyway. We have to improve our relations," Kolomoisky said, speaking about Russia. "People want peace, a good life, they don’t want to be at war. And you [America] are forcing us to be at war, and not even giving us the money for it."

7:25 [Mint Press News] (E)
By Emma Fiala - The United States is currently backing a military coup against Bolivia’s first indigenous president, Evo Morales, who recently won re-election. Bolivia has enjoyed relative calm during the length of Morales’ presidency which began in January 2006...Nowhere in these headlines do we see the word “coup” or any mention of the history or the violence at the hands of the opposition that includes the burning of a governor’s home, the dragging of a mayor through the streets after her hair was cut off and her body painted red, and most recently the destruction of Evo Morales’ home.

Of all the ludicrous aspects of the Cold War, among the most ridiculous was the notion that Cuba posed a threat to U.S. “national security.” For some 30 years, the U.S. deep state (i.e., the Pentagon, CIA, and NSA) maintained that Cuba was a communist “dagger” pointed at America’s neck and, therefore, was a grave threat to “national security.” Through it all, hardly anyone ever asked a very simple but important question: What did they mean when they said that Cuba was a threat to “national security”?

The Sunday military coup in Bolivia has put in place a government which appears likely to reverse a decision by just-resigned President Evo Morales to cancel an agreement with a German company for developing lithium deposits in the Latin American country for batteries like those in electric cars. "Bolivia`s lithium belongs to the Bolivian people," tweeted Washington Monthly contributor David Atkins. "Not to multinational corporate cabals."

At the end of last year some enterprising `anonymous` person released papers of the British Integrity Initiative. As we reported at that time: The British government financed Integrity Initiative is tasked with spreading anti-Russian propaganda and thereby with influencing the public, military and governments of a number of countries. What follows is an contextual analysis of the third batch of the Initiative`s internal papers which were dumped by an anonymous yesterday. Christopher Nigel Donnelly (CND) is the co-director of The Institute for Statecraft and founder of its offshoot Integrity Initiative. The Initiative claims to "Defend Democracy Against Disinformation". The Integrity Initiative does this by planting disinformation about alleged Russian influence through journalists `clusters` throughout Europe and the United States.

Stephen Karganovic - At one point in his memoirs Third Reich’s wartime soft power emissary in the Balkans, Hermann Neubacher, also known as Hitler’s der fliegende Diplomat, recounts that when in 1943 on the various battlefields the Reich’s fortunes waned, he was tasked with making the rounds of Orthodox Church dignitaries in the occupied Balkans to “animate” them to actively join the faltering crusade against the Soviet Union.

May 6, 2018 - Syria’s Bashar al-Assad: The Well-Hidden Back Story. How one man’s courage triggered the collapse of the British American Empire. Syrian President Predictably Demonized By All The Usual Suspects. Just how reviled is President Bashar al-Assad by the Western powers who maniacally push for regime change in Syria? So reviled that the U.S. Intelligence Community has been disseminating the utterly absurd and obviously false accusation that “Assad created ISIS”. Can the CIA-instigated whisper campaign get any more repugnant and ridiculous than that? Historical record tells the true story.

The forces behind this highly sophisticated intelligence operation are the same as those who got rid of JFK with flurry of bullets in Dealy Plaza; succeeded in ousting the pro-detente Nixon from the Oval Office; got Daddy Bush in control of the White House after Reagan was shot in March of 1981, and who have been running US foreign policy for over 100 years!

Nearly a year ago I published a piece called, “Have We Reached Peak Soros?” in which I outline the hurdles that Soros and his co-conspirators in The Davos Crowd face over the next two generations. Decentralization and the ability of people to communicate in real time are changing the face of human society, not always for the better if Twitter is any example. In that essay I outline why Soros has been so focused on getting back control of The Wire to control what we think and who we express those thoughts towards. Because of these things…

In tense world situations like this it is easy to get caught up in wave after wave of headlines as we are hourly updated on what is supposedly happening in a region that we really can’t rely on for ‘accurate’ timely reporting. In addition, there is the very problematic issue of a constant and very conscious intent to misinform the public as to what is going on and even resort to fallacious, fabricated, information in order to escalate tension rather than de-escalate.

Trump is rapidly ramping up troop deployments in preparation for what could be one of the greatest wars of our generation... The decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria has been somewhat of a nightmare for the Trump administration. Either that, or the story in and of itself has served as a useful distraction from other issues.

By a vote of 354-60 last week the US House of Representative proved that Imperial Washington is addicted to war, and that the level of ignorance, bellicosity and mendacity among the people`s representative has reach appalling heights. Having never voted for Washington`s pointless, illegal and destructive fomenting of Syria`s calamitous civil war in the first place, as the constitution requires, the bipartisan congressional mob actually had the gall to vote to keep US forces in the middle of a centuries old Kurd/Turk conflict that has zero implications for the security and safety of the American homeland. And we mean that as in zero, nichts, nada and nugatory.

Tim Kirby - It is nice to finally have a US President who is not a career politician. There is some truth to the Republican/Libertarian trope that lifelong politicians who know nothing but politics are perhaps not the best people to be making decisions on the military, medicine or education as they don’t know about life beyond getting reelected and “working” with lobbyists. Trump’s business background has lead him to making a major policy change that the Mainstream Media has surprisingly ignored that could actually be very good for America’s future.

Henry Kamens - All good things come to an end; therefore, it was expected that the US support to Kurds and regional stability would come to an end–sooner or later. But before taking up the human rights line and saying “but they were the friends of the United States, fought side-by-side,”etc, one should also consider the political realities and historic precedents.

Deep State and Military-Industrial Complex Mobilize Against Trump for Syria Exit. On the surface, Syria appears to be very complicated. It is … but then it isn’t. Russian President Vladimir Putin has done a truly stellar job at bringing peace to a country that the Neocon Zionists were hellbent on first destroying, and then permanently balkanizing. That meticulously planned balkanization plot by the US, UK, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Turkey seriously went awry when Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan bolted from the genocidal conspiracy. See The Syrian Holocaust: A Preplanned Genocide And Forced Exodus.

by Peter Koenig - For close to 40 years the IMF has weaponized its handle on the western economy through the dollar-based western monetary system, and brutally destroyed nation after nation, thereby killed hundreds of thousands of people. Indirectly, of course, as the IMF would not use traditional guns and bombs, but financial instruments that kill – they kill by famine, by economic strangulation, preventing indispensable medical equipment and medication entering a country, even preventing food from being imported, or being imported at horrendous prices only the rich can pay.

The Biden (and now Kerry) scandal in the Ukraine is much more than about the money paid to Hunter Biden for being a Board member at the largest gas producer in the Ukraine, Burisma Holdings. The real scandal involves billions in funds from the IMF and US in aid that has gone missing. Burisma (Ukraine`s largest oil and gas provider) has been the subject of many recent news articles because of its scandalous close-knit ties with President Obama`s Vice President Biden and Secretary of State Kerry.
