Why America’s revolution won’t be televised
The Revolution Won’t Be Televised because this is not a revolution. At least not yet. Burning and/or looting Target or Macy’s is a minor diversion. No one is aiming at the Pentagon (or even the shops at the Pentagon Mall). The FBI. The NY Federal Reserve. The Treasury Department. The CIA in Langley. Wall Street houses. The real looters – the ruling class – are comfortably surveying the show on their massive 4K Bravias, sipping single malt.

We Are Watching The Story Of America Crash Headlong Into The Reality Of America
I have a bedtime story for you. Once upon a time a brave nation liberated itself from the tyranny of the British empire and birthed freedom and democracy into the world. With the help of heroes like the abolitionists, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X it overcame systemic racial inequality, and now it is a shining exemplar of human rights, the respected friend of free democracies around the world and the hated foe of all tyrannical regimes. It is not without its faults and its past mistakes, but it is the best leader and protector of the liberal world order that we could possibly hope to have. I also have a waking up story for you.

“The World Cannot Breathe!” Squashed By The U.S.-A Country Built On Genocide And Slavery
More than two centuries of lies are now getting exposed. Bizarre tales about freedom and democracy are collapsing like houses of cards. One man’s death triggers an avalanche of rage in those who for years, decades and centuries, have been humiliated, ruined, and exterminated. It always happens just like this throughout the history of humankind – one single death, one single “last drop”, an occurrence that triggers an entire chain of events, and suddenly nothing is the same, anymore. Nothing can be the same. What seemed to be unimaginable just yesterday, becomes “the new normal” literally overnight.

The Strange Case of an America in Flames
For a decade or more, the world has seen riots that weren’t riots at all, Maiden Square, Hong Kong, Tripoli, Cairo and they have seen terror attacks, Paris, Boston and others. All have been staged. Now the US is in flames. Is there something in common here? It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Ukraine was overthrown by a CIA plot or that the Arab Spring, the series of fake revolutions, albeit failed, in Syria were staged as well, every single one. Now those who have turned the world inside out are ready to turn inward, albeit “again,” and take the US one step toward the Orwellian nightmare political analysists predicted after the 2016 election.

Trump beleidigt, droht gegen das eigene Volk
Den Vereinigten Staaten des Rassismus Paroli bieten. Von Krisenfestigkeit kann gar keine Rede sein, dies stellte jener 45. US-Präsident bereits in Corona-Zeiten unter Beweis. Aufgrund seiner Versäumnisse und Ignoranz haben sich inzwischen über 1,8 Millionen Menschen in den USA mit dem Covid-19-Virus infiziert, verstarben über 105.000. Mit dem Mord an George Floyd offenbart erneut diese westliche Großmacht ihren tagtäglich gelebten Rassismus.

Young White Men Abuse George Floyd Protests For Violence And Looting
Last night at times violent protests took place in some 30 U.S. cities. The escalation of the protests is not being driven by people of color whose grievance about systemic police brutality and institutionalized racism is driving the original, and in most cases peaceful protests. There are clear signs that other groups have joined and abuse the original protests for their own purpose: Mayor Jacob Frey said the people who are coming to Minneapolis to protest are not residents and are "coming in largely from outside the city."

L’illusion d’un mensonge fissuré ne sauvera pas la fin de l’empire
Les troubles aux États-Unis ont prouvé encore une fois la puissance des réseaux souterrains de l’Etat profond US corrompu et leur capacité de manœuvrer et de manipuler une société totalement détruite. Le positionnement de la CIA et du FBI contre l’administration Trump consacre désormais le grand schisme américain. Cependant, ni la CIA ni le FBI n’arrivent à discerner la gravité du moment. L’adoubement d’un dinosaure corrompu comme Biden ne sauvera pas l’empire mais précipitera sa chute. L’illusion de la reconstruction avec Biden ne prendra pas car l’injustice et les divisions au sein des populations US ne disparaîtront pas de sitôt. Ce genre de propagande que l’on attribuait d’habitude aux régimes staliniens fait désormais partie du rêve américain. Un projet de cauchemar totalitaire.

USA burning: Beginn eines Bürgerkriegs?
Die Demonstrationen und Auseinandersetzungen, nach der Tötung des Afroamerikaners George Floyd am 25.5. 2020 in Minneapolis /Minnesota, haben auf 70 Städte (Stand 1.6. 2020) übergegriffen; in mehr als 40 von ihnen wurde eine nächtliche Ausgangssperre verhängt, die bisher allerdings kaum befolgt wurde. Die Konfrontationen haben bereits jetzt zu 5 Toten und mehr als 2000 Festnahmen geführt, dazu Szenen, wie ein Polizeiauto und ein Tanklaster offenbar absichtlich in Demonstrationen gefahren sind.

Two days ago a policeman in Minnesota, who was well known for his brutality, murdered a black man, George Floyd, by suffocating him during an arrest for allegedly paying with a fake $20 bill. (video, longer version) It was one of many such murders. Spontaneous peaceful protests against the regime ensued. Yesterday afternoon the regime sent in its provocateurs. One of allegedly six was a white man in black clothes, masked with a professional gas mask and carrying a black umbrella. He was filmed as he started to smash shop windows even while protesters told him not do do that. (video). When people got suspicious of him the man walked away, his umbrella still up. (video). He was later identified as a member of the St. Paul police department.

Bidens Top-Berater: Wir sollten Syriens Ölfelder nicht einfach so zurückgeben
In Syrien befinden sich nach wie vor ausländische Truppen, die nicht auf Geheiß der Regierung Assad ins Land kamen und nach Völkerrecht somit als Besatzer gelten. Auch unter einem Präsidenten Joe Biden dürfte sich daran kaum etwas ändern, sagte nun sein Berater. Antony Blinken ist ein erfolgreicher Regierungsbeamter der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika. Er arbeitete bereits von 1994 bis 2001 als Mitglied des Nationalen Sicherheitsrates von Bill Clinton, von 2002 bis 2008 als Direktor der Demokraten im Senatsausschuss für auswärtige Angelegenheiten, bevor er dann Nationaler Sicherheitsberater von Vizepräsident Joe Biden wurde. Von 2009 bis 2016 diente er als Vizeaußenminister der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika.

Mail-Order Presidency: Democrats Will Do Anything to Beat Trump in November
Robert Bridge - Just like in 2016 when WikiLeaks revealed that the DNC was feeding Hillary Clinton debate questions, 2020 will be no different with the Democrats employing every dirty trick in the book to oust Donald Trump from office. Following on the backs of Russiagate, Impeachment, and now mass-media hysteria over Coronavirus, which of course has dealt Trump a major blow with regards to his hopes for reelection in November, is there anyone still not convinced that the Democrat machine is prepared to do absolutely anything to win in November? Liberals are painfully aware that if Trump wins another four years in office all of their pet projects – like open borders, senseless wars and warped cultural experiments – will be put on the back burner indefinitely. Desperate time call for desperate measures, like demanding mail-in ballots for the presidential election.

Truth in America R.I.P.
Paul Craig Roberts - In “freedom and democracy” America there is only official truth, and it is a lie. A person or website that speaks real truth is shunted aside as a “conspiracy theorist,” “Russian agent,” “racist,” “anti-semite,” or other such name with the purpose of discrediting the message and the messenger. For example, when I told the truth that Russiagate was a hoax, which it has proved to be, an anonymous website, possibly a CIA or NATO operation called “PropOrNot,” included this website among its fake list of 200 “Russian agents/dupes.” The Washington Post, a believed long-time CIA asset, hyped the PropOrNot revelation as if it were the truth. With “Russiagate” in full hype, the purpose was to scare readers away from those of us who were exposing the hoax.

US Senate Quietly Approves $38 Billion for Israel Amid Historic Economic Downturn
By Alison Weir - S.3176 was passed without being named, debated, or even discussed, even though it would set into law the largest such aid package in US history. Menifee, CA (IAK) — The Senate Foreign Relations Committee quietly passed a bill yesterday to give Israel a minimum of $38 billion over the next ten years despite the ongoing devastation to the U.S. economy caused by the coronavirus. The bill – S.3176 – will now go before the full Senate. Since the legislation has already been passed by the House of Representatives, if the Senate passes the bill, it will then go to the president to be signed into law. The bill was passed by the committee under two unusual circumstances and with almost no public awareness.

Michael Flynn’s Forgotten Turkish Connection
Before Russiagate, the former national security advisor was an operative for Turkey, tilting foreign policy against the Kurds. Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn is best known for his connection to the Russiagate investigation. Lost in that hubbub, however, was Flynn’s slimy role as a lobbyist for Turkey. A Turkish businessman paid Flynn $530,000 in 2016 to push pro-Turkey, anti-Kurd policies in hopes of influencing the Trump Administration. The American public has mostly forgotten about Flynn’s Turkey connections, says Steven A. Cook, senior fellow for Middle East and Africa Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, D.C. "There’s more going on with Turkey than people may realize," Cook tells me. Flynn’s money-driven opportunism is just one example of the operations of Washington’s foreign policy lobbyists. As a candidate, Donald Trump correctly criticized the Washington swamp, but as President, instead of draining it, he has shoveled in in more muck.

The Warp Speed Push for Coronavirus Vaccines
F. William Engdahl - The US White House has appointed a coronavirus “Vaccine Czar” from Big Pharma to oversee something dubbed Operation Warp Speed. The goal is to create and produce 300 million doses of a new vaccine to supposedly immunize the entire US population by year-end against COVID-19. To be sure that Big Pharma companies give their all to the medical Manhattan Project, they have been fully indemnified by the US government against liabilities should vaccine recipients die or develop serious disease as a result of the rushed vaccine. The FDA and NIH have waived standard pre-testing on animals in the situation. The US military, according to recent remarks by the US President, is being trained to administer the yet-to-be unveiled vaccine in record time. Surely nothing could go wrong here?

Tagesdosis 19.5.2020 – Ohne ein neues Pearl Harbor…
von Dirk Pohlmann - „Wir haben den schlimmsten Angriff erlebt, den es je auf unser Land gegeben hat. Es ist der schlimmste Angriff überhaupt. Er ist schlimmer als Pearl Harbor, schlimmer als das World Trade Center, so einen Angriff hat es noch nie gegeben.“ Mit diesen Worten kommentierte Donald Trump am 6. Mai die Corona-Krise. Für europäische Ohren klingt das nach einer weiteren Fehlleistung des irrlichternden US Präsidenten, der keine Gelegenheit auslässt zu beweisen, dass er kein Staatsmann ist. Es klingt nach der „Haltet den Dieb“ Taktik, als ob Trump von seinem Versagen in der Corona-Krise ablenken will. Es ist aber nur eine von vielen ähnlichen Äußerungen amerikanischer Politiker und Journalisten in den letzten Tagen. Steve Bannon, ehemaliger Chefstratege von Donald Trump und immer noch einer der wichtigsten grauen Eminenzen in seinem Beraterkreis, bekam in der Washington Post die Gelegenheit, seine Sicht darzulegen.

That disaster never would’ve taken place if the media hadn’t focused all their energy on scaring people to death.

He played a central role in delivering to Devin Nunes, Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, documents uncovering the existence of a plot by the Obama administration’s Intelligence services against the future Trump administration.

Add in the fact that the pandemic to end all pandemics, the 1918 “Spanish flu” (that may actually have originated in the United States), killed at least 50 million people on this planet before being forgotten in the catastrophic Great Depression and, until recently, essentially dropped from history.

It is possible and perhaps very likely, even extremely likely, that information about the real nature of COVID 19 and how it kills is being withheld because the truth destroys the “China did it” narrative the White House is pushing to cover its potential complicity. We have identified a broad program of censorship of information about COVID 19 that attacks the idea that it is a naturally occurring virus.

Trump et le syndrome chinois
On ne s’ennuie jamais, dans les conférences de presse que le président américain Donald Trump donne, à la Maison-Blanche, au gré de l’évolution de la pandémie du nouveau coronavirus. Un temps vexé par la polémique suscitée par sa sortie hasardeuse sur l’usage interne de détergents pour exterminer, tout à la fois, le Covid-19 et les patients infectés, il n’a pas mis 24 h pour « renoncer » à la menace de mettre fin aux points presse, qualifiés de « sans intérêt », au lendemain de vives critiques des médias américains, dont sa chaîne préférée Fox News, la seule, à ses yeux, qui n’use pas de fake news!

Concern Troll Is Concerned, Elbe Day Edition
by Thomas Knapp - On April 25, 2020, US president Donald Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin issued a joint statement commemorating the 75th anniversary of “Elbe Day” – the day, presaging the end of World War 2 in Europe, when Russian and US troops met near the German towns of Strehla and Torgau. The Wall Street Journal reports that this congenial interaction between the two presidents “stirs concern among” members of Congress and officials at the US Departments of State and Defense. What’s inherently controversial about the Trump/Putin statement that wasn’t controversial about the similar 65th anniversary message from Barack Obama and Dmitry Medvedev? The supposed concern appears to have little, if anything, to do with actual foreign policy matters.

Putschisten im Schatten des Coronavirus
Während die Bevölkerung ihre Augen auf die Zahlen der Coronavirus-Progression wirft, findet eine tiefgreifende Reorganisation der Exekutive statt, die den hohen Beamten für das Gesundheitswesen den Vorrang gegenüber der Politik gibt. Im Hintergrund agitieren Banker und Militärs in der Hoffnung, die Macht zu ihren Gunsten zu usurpieren. Am 1. Februar wies US-Verteidigungsminister Mark Esper General Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy an, sich bereit zu halten. Am 13. Februar erklärte letzterer vor dem Verteidigungsausschuss des Senats, sich auf das schlimmste Szenario vorzubereiten. Im Falle einer Gesundheitskatastrophe würde der Plan der "Kontinuität der Regierung" ihn zum nächsten Diktator (im alten Sinne des Wortes) der Vereinigten Staaten machen.

Covid-19 und die rote Morgendämmerung
Die Covid-19-Epidemie hat bisher mehr als 200.000 Menschen das Leben gekostet und weitere Milliarden in Panik gestürzt. Eine Panik, die den meisten von ihnen jeden kritischen Sinn raubt und sie dazu drängt, törichte politische Entscheidungen zu treffen oder zu billigen. Eine Gruppe von Persönlichkeiten, die rote Morgendämmerung, (Red Dawn), deren Korrespondenz von Kaiser Health News und der New York Times Website enthüllt wurde, war es gelungen, eine apokalyptische Ideologie durchzusetzen: China hätte uns den Krieg erklärt, und wir könnten uns nur schützen, indem wir alle Zivilisten isolieren.

Trump Could Shock The World And Actually Save Iran
The president must recognize that his `maximum pressure` campaign is all but handing ordinary Iranians a death warrant. Recent tensions in the Persian Gulf cannot cover the fact that Iran is facing catastrophe due to coronavirus and its impact on the Iranian economy and people, only made worse by continuing U.S. sanctions. In fact those tensions could be rising from the desperation Iran finds itself in as it struggles with Washington’s “maximum pressure campaign” amid mounting death tolls, dwindling supplies, a restive population, and crashing oil prices. This is the moment President Donald Trump could step up—off Twitter and into a more diplomatic role—to find peace at a time of a global health crisis, through relaxing the sanctions, not enforcing more.

Math Bombshell: Case Fatality Rate (CFR) is not the same as Infection Fatality Rate (IFR)… The coronavirus CFR in the USA is likely above 10%
In an effort to try to claim the coronavirus is no more dangerous than the regular flu — even though covid-19 has already killed more Americans in the last 17 days than what the regular flu killed in an entire year — pandemic denialists are claiming the case fatality rate for the coronavirus is very similar to that of the flu. They achieve this false result by comparing the CDC’s numbers for flu fatalities to the estimates of the coronavirus case fatality rate based on projecting the results of questionable antibody tests to the population at large. (i.e. using the “Stanford study” which has already been completely ripped to shreds by dozens of scientists.)...Comparing apples to apple: A summary of CFR vs. IFR for both the regular flu and the coronavirus.

Dear President Trump: To save America, you must ignore the disinformation from your own supporters who are ignorant about infectious disease
Dear President Trump, In order to save America from the coronavirus, you must ignore the dangerously bad disinformation being pushed by your own supporters who are ignorant about infectious disease. You may or may not be aware, but because of a fundamental lack of scientific and medical knowledge across the conservative media and independent media, the vast majority of Trump supporters right now believe four things which are demonstrably false: Belief #1) The coronavirus is a “hoax” and isn’t even killing people. The entire thing, they claim, is a grand media conspiracy involving 100+ countries and hundreds of thousands of doctors, nurses and coroners who are all faking the deaths. Belief #2) Because the coronavirus is a “hoax,” lockdowns don’t work and were never necessary. All lockdowns should end immediately, they say.

Her mit dem Geld! „Um Peking dafür zu bestrafen, dass es Informationen über den Ausbruch in Wuhan verschwiegen hat, der eine Gesundheitskrise von planetarischem Ausmaß auslöste, müssen wir einen Teil der amerikanischen Schulden bei der chinesischen Zentralbank abschreiben“, sagte die Senatorin von Tennessee, Marsha Blackburn.

As One of the Largest Bailouts in History Looms, “Crisis-Ridden” Corporations Reap Record Profits
By Alan Macleod - Once again it appears that big business will get bailed out while the American people get sold out. Hospitals overflowing with sick and dying patients. Overworked staff risking their lives wearing garbage bags as makeshift protective equipment against an invisible but deadly virus. Refrigerated containers left outside medical facilities, filling with the dead. Mass graves being dug in the city. It is like something out of a horror movie. But it is very real and is happening right now in America. “We are doing the best we can,” Derrick Smith, a certified registered nurse anesthetist in New York City told MintPress last week, “but people are dying left and right, no exaggeration.” “I’ve never imagined or seen our healthcare system take such a beating before,” he said. “This is something that none of us have ever really seen.”

How to Get Rid of a POTUS
John Quincy Adams - In the Soviet Union there was an expression “The Organs of State Security” or “Organs” for short. Their supposed power in the USSR was one of the things that separated them from what we used to call “the free world”. Not so much any more – the American Organs came very close to getting rid of the so-called Most Powerful Man in The World. They made only one mistake; they probably won’t next time. The impeachment of US President Donald Trump is over, or at least this iteration is. This was not a normal impeachment, it was an attempt by the Deep State, the Organs of State Security, the Blob, the Borg – later we will learn what its members call it – to remove a president of the United States. After some false starts, it succeeded at every step except the very last one. But, as they say, practice makes perfect and the Organs have learned from their mistake.

It’s clear that the plan from the beginning was to allow this virus to run wild in high profile places like New York and Italy to create fear.

5 Things the Government Must Do Now to Avoid Collapse or Revolution
The COVID-19 medical and economic crisis remains mostly unaddressed by both the Republican and Democratic parties. They have only passed one piece of legislation that significantly helps workers: supplementing existing state unemployment benefits by $600 per week. Those additional payments expire in four months. Until then many people who are out of work will receive about $1000 a week. If the past is precedent, Congress is likely to renew the law. Aside from expanded unemployment checks, the government has been useless. Here are the essential basic things Congress and President Trump must do in order to avoid economic collapse, mass starvation, an epidemic of violent crime reminiscent of “A Clockwork Orange” and political unrest up to and including revolution. They must do it now.

The logic of this is that most people are expected to vote for a candidate with a less desirable platform, which is only self-fulfilling if nobody shouts out that the hold-your-nose candidate has no clothes before a mysterious substance called “momentum” can be declared to exist and the candidate whom people actually prefer can be persuaded to give up.

Trump’s Handling of the COVID–19 Pandemic Would Cost Him the Presidency If Democrats Just Embrace Sanders
By ALAN MACLEOD - No matter how much Fox News tries to spin it, President Trump’s handling of the COVID–19 pandemic has been little short of disastrous. For weeks, he wrote the virus off as a liberal “hoax” designed to force him out of the White House. Rather than providing leadership at the top, his main concern appears to be shifting American anger towards China, insisting on calling the pandemic the “China virus” and demanding Beijing be held to account for their supposed mishandling of the coronavirus. He also appears to be actively blocking New York State’s attempts to procure thousands of lifesaving ventilators. “I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they’re going to be,” he told Sean Hannity on Thursday, adding that, in the midst of a seemingly exponential rise in cases, that he wants to “start opening up certain parts of the country” again, because the cure can’t be worse than the disease.

Rikers Island itself is on the verge of near collapse, over 300 inmates and staff have tested positive and human rights campaigners warn conditions in the notorious prison are dire.

The plans had been drawn up by former New York Mayor Micheal Bloomberg during his time in office. The article might have appeared alarmist at the time, considering that the city had only one confirmed coronavirus case and patient zero was self-isolating in her Manhattan home. But one month later, things are bad. Really bad. City authorities have confirmed 41,771 cases of the novel coronavirus as of March 31, with nearly 1,100 deaths.

Die Reaktion der US-Regierung auf den anscheinend unmittelbar bevorstehenden Anstieg der Corona-Fälle wurde weitgehend zwischen Teilen des nationalen Sicherheitsstaates, das heißt dem NSC, dem Pentagon und dem Geheimdienst koordiniert. Vertreter des Gesundheits- und Sozialministeriums hätten sich dagegen „gewehrt“, welche Weichen der Nationale Sicherheitsrat bereits Mitte Januar gestellt hatte. Die Besorgnis wächst, dass die Regierung angesichts der Beteiligung der US-Geheimdienste an geheimen Treffen zur Planung der US-Reaktion auf das Coronavirus über das Ziel hinausschießt.

We no longer live in a world where it`s possible to pretend that one nation`s problems are separate from those of every other nation. We`re only as safe as our least safe neighbors in a public health crisis such as this and in the competition to be the least safe, the US is doing its best to be number 1. In "Taking The News From Behind" Lee discusses Chelsea Manning’s release from prison, our current economic crisis, and that the Justice Department has dropped charges against the Russia.

Unser `Kriegspräsident` zieht in die Schlacht
"Wer alles verteidigen will, verteidigt nichts" (König Friedrich der Große von Preußen) Dies ist eine der wichtigsten Maximen der Militärgeschichte. Jeder junge Offizier sollte sie fest in seinem Kopf verankert haben. Doch Präsident Donald Trumps konfuse Regierung hat genau dies getan, da sie einen unsichtbaren Feind bekämpft, den niemand erwartet hat.

Pandemic Highlights How Horrible Capitalism Is
The Coronavirus is spreading across the world rapidly and testing the resilience of governments and societies. The US has found itself unprepared for the pandemic partly because Donald Trump got rid of a pandemic response power when he first came to power but also because of the healthcare system that has been at the center of this election season.

Stattdessen wurde er vor eine Grand Jury gezerrt und aus Verachtung jahrelang im Gefängnis eingesperrt.

Feature or Bug? Super Tuesday Plagued by Long Lines, Closed Polling Stations and Systemic Failure
By Alan Macleod - Things got so bad that some voters claimed that if a similar situation occurred in states such as Iran, the US government would intervene to “restore democracy.” Chaos and gridlock again reigned across much of America as fourteen states chose their candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination yesterday on Super Tuesday. Many voters were forced to wait in line for up to six hours as understaffed and poorly equipped polling stations were inundated with voters, particularly in Texas and California, the two largest and most influential Super Tuesday states. In California, electronic voting systems were unable to connect and experienced severe problems, something election integrity activists had warned was bound to happen. The law dictates that all those in line by closing time must be allowed to cast a ballot. But the technical difficulties meant that many stood in line through the evening for their right to choose.

Super Tuesday of the Main Circus on the Planet
In Ukraine, everything is boring and predictable, the collapse and firesale are going according to plan. So let’s look again at the United States; it’s there that the main circus of the planet is now taking place. In the United (so far) States, a “super Tuesday” was held – a day when “Caucuses” (preliminary intra-party voting to select presidential candidates from the two main parties) were held in a quarter of the total number of States. There will be another “super Tuesday” later, but it involves just about 20% of the States. But at the moment it’s not about this. And on this “super Tuesday” suddenly (really unexpectedly for everyone), Joe Biden with his shaking head wins.

Ein Bann ist gebrochen
Mark Lesseraux - Für den größten Teil der vergangenen 50 Jahre – also solange ich mich zurückerinnern kann (ich bin 51 Jahre alt), galt eine „rote Linie“ in den USA, die – obwohl kaum direkt thematisiert – nicht zu übertreten war. Diese „Linie“ war die stillschweigende kollektive Übereinkunft, dass alle größeren Veränderungen sich innerhalb eines engen Korridors von Möglichkeiten zu bewegen hatten, die vom de facto allmächtigen „System“ festgelegt wurden. Dieses „System“, diese scheinbar in Stein gemeißelte Ansammlung unausgesprochener Grenzen, umfasst alles von den Medien, über Politik hin zur Kunst und natürlich vor allem alles, was mit der Wirtschaft zusammenhängt … was im Prinzip so ziemlich alles einschließt. Erst bis vor kurzem dachten wir, dass wir keine andere Wahl hätten, als den Vorgaben dieses Systems zu folgen. Und doch hat sich definitiv seit einiger Zeit etwas verschoben. Es scheint, als wäre ein Bann gebrochen.

Dieser griff ihn ob seiner Unterstützung der Irak-Invasion im Jahr 2003 verbal an. Ein Mann, der sich selbst als ehemaliger Soldat der US-Luftwaffe ausgab, näherte sich dem ehemaligen Vizepräsidenten und befragte ihn über seine Unterstützung der US-Operation im Irak im Jahr 2003. Das Video wurde auf dem Twitter-Profil der Organisation "Veterans Against the War" gepostet.

Seth Rich, Julian Assange and Dana Rohrabacher - Will We Ever Know the Truth About the Stolen DNC Files?
The media is doing its best to make the Seth Rich story go away, but it seems to have a life of its own, possibly due to the fact that the accepted narrative about how Rich died makes no sense. In its Iatest manifestation, it provides an alternative explanation for just how the information from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) computer somehow made its way to Wikileaks. If you believe that Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide and that he was just a nasty pedophile rather than an Israeli intelligence agent, read no farther because you will not be interested in Rich. But if you appreciate that it was unlikely that the Russians were behind the stealing of the DNC information you will begin to understand that other interested players must have been at work.

First They Came for Assange…
“WikiLeaks, I love WikiLeaks." ~ Donald Trump, October 10 2016, Wilkes-Barre, PA. “This WikiLeaks is like a treasure trove." ~ Donald Trump, October 31, 2016 in Warren, MI. Back in the day, not so long ago, The Donald loved him some WikiLeaks. He said so on at least five occasions out on the campaign trail – in Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, and Michigan. That was when WikiLeaks, ostensibly at least, served his purposes by releasing hacked DNC emails that were rather unflattering to his opponent, Hillary Clinton. The MAGA crew must’ve agreed with him regarding the Julian Assange-headed web publication at the time: Trump carried all four battleground states, which propelled him into the White House. He’s had more than three years, now, to acclimate to his new digs and, somewhere along the way, pulled a 180 on Assange, whom his administration now labels "an enemy of the state who must be brought down."

Wie immer hat das russische Fernsehen am Sonntag in der Sendung „Nachrichten der Woche“ wieder einen Rückblick auf die innenpolitischen Spielchen in den USA gebracht, den ich traditionell übersetze. In Russland scheinen sich die politischen Kommentatoren auf einen Wahlkampf zwischen Trump und Sanders zu freuen. Das dürfte der Super-Gau für die westlichen Medien werden, denn Trump ist ohnehin ihr Buhmann, aber Sanders gilt mit seinen sozialen Ansichten ebenfalls als Bösewicht. Er bekam nur so lange gute Presse, wie er keine Chance auf den Sieg in den Vorwahlen hatte. Auch die demokratische Partei in den USA will Sanders nicht, vor vier Jahren wurde seine Kampagne von der Partei sogar zu Gunsten von Clinton sabotiert.

Trump`s Budget: More Warfare, Slightly Less Welfare
Ron Paul - Listening to the howls from Democrats and the applause from Republicans, one would think President Trump’s proposed fiscal year 2021 budget is a radical assault on the welfare state. The truth is that the budget contains some minor spending cuts, most of which are not even real cuts. Instead they are reductions in the “projected rate of growth.”

You Have to Laugh
It’s often hard to report on U.S. politics and government with a straight face. It’s even harder to report on the usual reporting on U.S. politics and government with a straight face. So much of it is beyond the reach of parody. Yet it also opens up opportunities to shock people with basic facts. The stock market going up is not a good thing. Wars don’t expand human rights. Loony newfangled schemes to give everyone healthcare and education have been tried for many decades in many countries, making them more reliable and old-fashioned than getting to keep your beloved health insurance company and student debt. Muslim terrorists are not in the top 1,000 threats to your health. Russian Facebook accounts are not in the top 10,000 corrupting influences on U.S. elections. The amount of money the Pentagon spends every year is $100,000 times $100,000 times $100 plus more than you can truly comprehend. Michael Bloomberg is not an impressive serious person.

(2) Und noch in seinen schlimmsten Stunden ist der Wikileaks-Gründer Julian Assange wieder – wie bei der Aufdeckung der US-Kriegsverbrechen im Irak (3) – der Bote unserer untergehenden Demokratien mit ihren immer weiter in den Schmutz sinkenden ethischen Werten und dramatisch zunehmend eingeschränkten Bürgerrechten. So sieht er aus: der Friendly Fashism hinter den letzten Fetzen seiner vorgehaltenen Maske aus Demagogie. Aber: viele Menschen weltweit haben längst erkannt, was auf dem Spiel steht. Sie protestieren täglich mit Aussagen wie "Ich bin Julian Assange", "Wir alle sind Julian Assange".

Shut Down Canada Until It Solves Its War, Oil, and Genocide Problem
DAVID SWANSON - Indigenous people in Canada are giving the world a demonstration of the power of nonviolent action. The justness of their cause — defending the land from those who would destroy it for short term profit and the elimination of a habitable climate on earth — combined with their courage and the absence on their part of cruelty or hatred, has the potential to create a much larger movement, which is of course the key to success. This is a demonstration of nothing less than a superior alternative to war, not just because the war weapons of the militarized Canadian police may be defeated by the resistance of the people who have never been conquered or surrendered, but also because the Canadian government could accomplish its aims in the wider world better by following a similar path, by abandoning the use of war for supposedly humanitarian ends and making use of humanitarian means instead.

Hunter Biden Was On Board Of Trade Coalition Lobbying Obama Admin On Ukraine Aid
Hunter Biden served on the board of a trade group that lobbied for increased spending on international aid, including for Ukraine. Biden’s association with the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition and its close affiliate, the Center for U.S. Global Leadership, has gone unexplored in the coverage of his business dealings. While affiliated with the groups, Biden joined the board of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings. Hunter Biden was on the board of a trade coalition that lobbied the Obama administration in 2014 on foreign assistance to Ukraine, and appears to have set up a State Department meeting for the group’s president. Biden’s links to the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition (USGLC) and its affiliate, the Center for U.S. Global Leadership, have gone largely unreported in the coverage of his various business dealings, which have caused a headache for his father as he runs for president.

Impeachment and Antisemitism
A year ago I interviewed Yonatan Stern in a kosher pizzeria in Monticello, Catskills, New York. Yonatan is the man behind Cherev Gidon, an ‘Israeli Tactical Training Academy.’ Yonatan was a perfect subject to interview: his views may be radical but they are based upon a sharp, coherent and consistent rationale. He was open in expressing his thoughts, which included some outrageous statements but which all left no doubt that he both meant what he said and said what he meant. I’ve observed that in America 2020, after half a century of the tyranny of correctness, very few Americans are brave enough to celebrate their constitutionally protected liberty to think and express themselves freely and authentically.
