ISRAEL ATTACKS GAZA , SO CORPOATE MEDIA WAGS THE HOLOCAUSDT AT US ALL!

Trial of 'Auschwitz bookkeeper' told how gas chamber pesticide was so weak it could take holocaust victims 'longer than half-an-hour to die'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They slipped up and admitted Zyklon-B is actually a pesticide, like the American DDT! It was used for delousing to try to stop the spread of Typhus across Germany towards the end of the war; a consequence of the collapsing health infrastructure and possibly biological warfare.

The People of Santa Barbara vs. Big Corporate Oil (A Cautionary Tale) or, Who Has Power and Who Does Not in America

It is happening again.

History may seem to repeat, but more accurately it rhymes.

This 1969 chronicle and analysis promises to teach us much, and we do well to listen. A sociological thriller, a nail-biter, a roller coaster ride for the ethically conscious, with everything from the bitterly funny to the obscenely familiar. As a bonus, one is left with a more thorough and effective understanding.

Perhaps such Evils may at long last belong to history alone.....

Media Censorship of Critical Coverage of California’s Bill to Mandate Vaccines for School Children

A few weeks ago, he was asked as an honored guest on Bonnie Faulkner’s show, Guns and Butter which talks about the politics of economics and airs on Pacifica KPFA public radio stations. In the spirit of truth, Bonnie wanted listeners to hear the other side of the vaccine talk, not the “case closed” version. What you’re not being told about vaccines. And specifically SB277, the California bill to mandate vaccines for virtually all Californian school children. Who better to ask then Null, an alternative health expert, medical activist and Pacifica veteran?

When it came time to air, however, they were told they weren’t allowed – or rather, they were outright censored and the show was cut

US Shoots Itself in the Foot Escalating Tensions With Russia, China, Iran

The Obama administration has repeatedly sent wrong signals to Russia, China and Iran, slamming the countries for non-existent expansionism and so far showing the disheartening dysfunction in America’s foreign policy, former CIA Case Officer and Army Intelligence Officer Philip Giraldi underscored, according to Sputnik.

US President is shooting himself in the foot, but he should wake up and realize what is going on "before Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush arrives on the scene to make everything worse"the former CIA officer Philip Giraldi concluded.

Washington Protects Its Lies With More Lies — Paul Craig Roberts

My distrust has deepened of Seymour Hersh’s retelling of the Obama regime’s extra-judicial murder of Osama bin Laden by operating illegally inside a sovereign country. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2015/05/11/seymour-hersh-succumbs-disi... That Hersh’s story, which is of very little inherent interest, received such a large amount of attention, is almost proof of orchestration in order to substantiate the Obama regime’s claim to have killed a person who had been dead for a decade.

Banksters admit rigging markets since 2007, ‘fined’ 33% of 1 quarter’s income while looting tens of trillions tax-free

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

hat tips: here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here :)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tu32CCA_Ig

Asset-hole and so-called “too big to jail” banks admitted criminal looting through market manipulation and collusion last week, and will return a mere 33% of one quarter’s income without prison sentences (total “fine” of $5.7 billion from $15.5 billion 2015 1st-quarter combined incomes - see below).

Please note that the US Department of Justice (sic) fails to communicate the amount looted by the banksters, only the “fines” without context of:

this is a bankster operating expense for pretending to operate under law,
“regulators” serve in government “minor league” positions until “called up” to work for the banksters in the “big leagues,”
requiring the banks to “fire” eight responsible executives without prison sentences just allows them to be rehired by other banksters to resume “business” as usual.

Memorial Day: Praying for Peace While Waging Permanent War?

First, we must learn the facts and face the truth that the U.S. is the biggest war maker in the world.

Second, we must commit ourselves and organize others to a true revolution of values and confront the corporations and politicians who continue to push our nation into war and inflate the military budget with the hot air of permanent fear mongering.

Third, we must admit what our country has been doing wrong, and we must make amends for the violence that the U.S. has waged on countries all over our world.

Why is the US Trying to Replace the Assad Government With al-Qaeda in Syria?

Kennedy Drops Bombshell: 70% News Ad Revenue From Pharma

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is at it again. After speaking in Sacramento, California against SB-277, pummeling the Centers for Disease Control during public testimony in Vermontand appearing on Bill Maher’s HBO show to do the same, he has now broke major news during a recent interview. Speaking with former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura regarding the vaccine industry and big pharma, Kennedy confirmed what many have assumed by stating:

“I ate breakfast last week with the president of a network news division and he told me that during non-election years, 70% of the advertising revenues for his news division come from pharmaceutical ads. And if you go on TV any night and watch the network news, you’ll see they become just a vehicle for selling pharmaceuticals. He also told me that he would fire a host who brought onto his station a guest who lost him a pharmaceutical account.”

Why the politically connected media elite are immune from criminal prosecution in America

What about America's liberal media elite? Do they, too, have some sort of legal immunity? Not technically as there are no laws or constitutional provisions that specifically exempt progressive elitist members of the press from legal prosecution.

However, author Katie Pavlich, news editor of the conservative TownHall.com news and opinion web site, says they might as well have immunity because they get away with criminal behavior that would likely land ordinary citizens behind bars all too often.

Voters don't trust news media's coverage of Hillary Clinton: Poll

Rasmussen Reports released the results of a national survey on Thursday that revealed 61 percent of likely voters have no trust in the political news they are getting. That's a 16-point increase from the 45 percent who said they did not trust the political news in a poll conducted in October 2014. Only 21 percent of the respondents said they still have confidence in the political coverage they get, but that's a 12-point decrease from the 33 percent in the October 2014 survey. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.

Jeb Bush, James Baker, and the Pro-Israel Mega-Donors

What is the issue, that gets little attention in the mainstream, is that the presidential candidates find it necessary to pay obeisance to ultra-powerful individuals who represent the interests of Israel, not the United States.

What exists now is a “passionate attachment” to a foreign country on steroids that undercuts American security.

For while the mainstream media is analyzing in microscopic detail Jeb’s stumbling over his Iraq war response, it naturally ignores that third rail in contemporary American politics, the power of the Israel lobby.

Hope – versus Neoliberalism – an Ode to Solidarity

The new apparent Hope – is it what my friend Finian Cunningham says – the first ‘eye blinking’ by Washington facing Russia?

We are so thirsty for hope, hope for another, more just, more equitable world, we see hope in the first ‘blinking of an eye’. Hope is good. Hope is the basis for action. And action must be the consequence of hope – hope that not all is lost. Action to break that impasse of neoliberal all-engulfing greed must be simple. We have become strangers to ourselves. We must return to our roots, recognizing where and why we failed to diagnose the beast. Our awakened, re-kindled sense of consciousness may lead us to what we have lost – our inherent sense of solidarity.

Let’s hope together for that to happen – to happen soon, for the suffering is too great to endure much longer. We, the 99.99 % have it in our power to stop this misery and save our planet.

William Kristol: We were right to fight in Iraq

We were right to invade Iraq in 2003 to remove Saddam Hussein, and to complete the job we should have finished in 1991.

Even with the absence of caches of weapons of mass destruction, and the mistakes we made in failing to send enough troops at first and to provide security from the beginning for the Iraqi people, we were right to persevere through several difficult years. We were able to bring the war to a reasonably successful conclusion in 2008.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So according to Kristol, the US killed a lot of people, bombed Iraq into rubble, utterly failed to accomplish the stated goals for the war because the nuclear weapons did not actually exist, leaving Iraq in utter chaos, but it was still a success?

I wonder what Kristol thinks is a failure?

George Soros, NATO, US Color Revolution Machine Behind Unrest in Macedonia

By Brandon Turbeville

With tensions heating up between the United States and Russia over a number of issues - Ukraine, BRICS, sanctions, and NATO encirclement to name a few - the West continues its move in toward Russia's borders. The latest target in the Anglo-American destabilization campaign has now come forward - Macedonia.

In the attempt to destroy the elected government of Macedonia, George Soros, NATO, and the Western Color Revolution apparatus have all come together to ensure that the will of the Macedonian people is denied as is the will of populations in all Western-style democracies.

As informed observers might well suspect, any color revolution taking place in Eastern Europe will involve the heavy hand of George Soros...

Par For the Course - New York Times Coverage Follows Narrative of Israeli State Power

Several days later, the Gray Lady printed “Israel Says Hezbollah Positions Put Lebanese at Risk,” uncritically repeating Israeli propaganda justifying a future violent, illegal invasion that would likely kill thousands of civilians.

That is the big news out of the Vatican.

A soccer ban doesn’t kill anyone. A boycott spills no blood. It is a legitimate weapon to establish justice and apply international law. Israel supported and supports boycotts, and encourages them: against Hamas, against Gaza, and, of course, against Iran. It even joined the boycott against South Africa, albeit in spite of itself. Now its turn has come.

When they’re killing children every day
And the whole world looks away

What’s it coming to?
What’s it coming to?
When kings and presidents say they’re right
To bomb the poor day and night

And the whole damn world just stays quiet
And the whole damn world bows to might is right

What’s it coming to?
What’s it coming to?
When they’re killing children every day
And the whole world looks away

And the whole world looks away
And the whole world looks away

ABOUT THOSE U.S. TROOPS WHO DIED IN RAMADI

I can’t help but wonder how the family of Michael A. Monsoor is reacting to ISIS’s recent conquest of Ramadi in Iraq. Monsoor was awarded the Medal of Honor for actions taken during the 2006 Battle of Ramadi, when U.S. forces fought insurgents for control of the city. The medal was awarded posthumously.

Monsoor wasn’t the only U.S. soldier who died in Ramadi. According to the Wikipedia page “Battle of Ramadi (2006),” more than 80 U.S. soldiers were killed and more than 200 were injured.

My hunch is that at least some of the family members of all those dead Americans are thinking to themselves, “Okay, ISIS now controls Ramadi. But at least my loved one died so that Americans can be free.”

Of course, that’s easier than thinking that they died for nothing. But the fact is that they did die for nothing. Just look at Ramadi today for proof. Indeed, just look at Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wars fought overseas are NOT fought "to keep Americans free"; they are fought for control of resources major American corporations wish to claim, and to which they have no moral right whatsoever.
As the lyrics from a new song I have just shipped off to my soloist, state:

"War's never fought for the reasons you're given,
Those in power keep feeding you lies
And the reasons you're made to keep fighting and killing
should come as no big surprise
War's not about freedom, or courage or honor,
or preserving the American way;
It's all about money, control greed and power,
And making those who resist go away....
And making those who resist go away..."

The US government, with its preemptive war against Iraq, caused the situation which gave rise to Isis (IF, in fact, Isis is not a US tool, just as was Al Quaeda, to scare the stuffing out of Americans, and scare them out of thinking.) The corporate presstitutes are bemoaning Iraq's coming complete demise, if the US doesn't go in a 3rd time, militarily.

Folks, just say no, peacefully, to this government on a third invasion of Iraq; they cannot get anything straight, and will most likely botch things up more than they already are botched in this country. It is your children who will fight, get maimed for life, or die, in the name of corporate profits.

And no kid should get maimed or die for that; EVER!!

David Brooks’ sickening Iraq apologia: How the New York Times hack just rewrote history

New York Times columnist David Brooks was once an enthusiastic backer of George W. Bush’s disastrous invasion of Iraq. He’d write columns for the Weekly Standard – the official journal of bankrupt neoconservative thought – glorifying Bush for his steely-eyed determination and tartly mocking the pansy liberals and other anti-war types who opposed Bush’s righteous exercise in nation-building and freedom-spreading. “History will allow clear judgments about which leaders and which institutions were up to the challenge posed by Saddam,” Brooks prophesied in the March 2003 column, “and which were not.”

CANCER CHARITIES BILKED DONORS FOR $187 MIL, SPENT IT ON LUXURY FOR CHARITY OPERATORS, THEIR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS

Government regulators have cracked down on four cancer charities, accusing the Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, the Children's Cancer Fund of America, and the Breast Cancer Society of cheating donors out of $187 million.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), all 50 states, and the District of Columbia claim that the four foundations fraudulently told donors their money would help cancer patients. Instead, money from the donations overwhelmingly went into the pockets of charity operators, their families and friends, and professional fundraisers.

According to the complaint filed by authorities, the charities “operated as personal fiefdoms characterized by rampant nepotism, flagrant conflicts of interest, and excessive insider compensation, with none of the financial and governance controls that any bona fide charity would have adopted.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you are going to contribute to any charity, please do the due diligence.

There are two feeding ministries, supported by my local Methodist church, and the local Catholic church, that Mike and I support, because we see precisely where the food and money goes. But these days, one cannot be too careful, when appearance and substance of where your charity money goes may well be two different things entirely.

EVEN MORE ADMITTED FALSE FLAG TERROR INCIDENTS COME TO LIGHT

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Governments consistently lie to their people about realities on the ground, in order to further their geopolitical agendas, no matter how much pain and suffering those agendas will create.

I’VE READ OBAMA’S SECRET TRADE DEAL. ELIZABETH WARREN IS RIGHT TO BE CONCERNED

You need to tell me what’s wrong with this trade agreement, not one that was passed 25 years ago,” a frustrated President Barack Obama recently complained about criticisms of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). He’s right. The public criticisms of the TPP have been vague. That’s by design—anyone who has read the text of the agreement could be jailed for disclosing its contents. I’ve actually read the TPP text provided to the government’s own advisors, and I’ve given the president an earful about how this trade deal will damage this nation. But I can’t share my criticisms with you.

I can tell you that Elizabeth Warren is right about her criticism of the trade deal. We should be very concerned about what’s hidden in this trade deal—and particularly how the Obama administration is keeping information secret even from those of us who are supposed to provide advice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From what I have been able to gather, should this be passed, corporations will have complete control over all aspects of American life, superseding American Law, the Constitution, and Bill of Rights, and We the People will be utterly helpless to change that.

At the point of this legislation's passage, corporations will officially own the government of the United States of America, which they already covertly do; but when this passes, it will be an in-your-face, "Shut up and don't try to change this" attitude which will bring this country into a period of absolute Medieval serfdom.

The Nation magazine’s shameful history of aiding ethnic cleansing in Palestine

In 2005, Palestinian civil society implored people of conscience around the world to stand up for justice by honoring its call for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel. A decade later certain segments of the US left are still debating whether this Palestinian request for solidarity is a worthy enough cause.

The Nation magazine, a bastion of progressive journalism, has been at the forefront of indecision on this issue, regularly hosting debates on whether the indigenous non-Jewish inhabitants of historic Palestine merit equal rights in their native land.

Several days later, the Gray Lady printed “Israel Says Hezbollah Positions Put Lebanese at Risk,” uncritically repeating Israeli propaganda justifying a future violent, illegal invasion that would likely kill thousands of civilians.

New York Post Reports – ABC Signed a $105 Million Contract with George Stephanopoulos Last Year

If the New York Post report is true, ABC News made a monumental financial blunder last year when it signed a $105 million contract to keep George Stephanopoulos as the face of its “news” network.

As I outlined in last week’s post, First Brian Williams, Now George Stephanopoulos Has Lost All Credibility in Latest Mainstream Media Scandal, due to his undisclosed donations to the Clinton Foundation, Mr. Stephanopoulos is now unable to report with any credibility on Hillary Clinton. If he isn’t capable of reporting on Hillary, then he isn’t able of reporting on any aspect of the 2016 Presidential election. So why would he be worth five dollars, let alone $105 million?

Many of the NSA’s Loudest Defenders Have Financial Ties to NSA Contractors

As one example of the opaque link between NSA money and punditry, take the words of Stewart Baker, who was general counsel to the NSA from 1992 through 1994. During a Senate committee hearing last summer on one of the reform bills now before Congress, the USA FREEDOM Act, which would partially limit mass surveillance of telephone metadata, Baker essentially said the bill would aid terrorists.

“First, I do not believe we should end the bulk collection program,” he told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. “It will put us at risk. It will, as Senator King strongly suggested, slow our responses to serious terrorist incidents. And it is a leap into the dark with respect to this data.”

Fake Evidence Blaming Russia for MH-17?

Pointing the finger of blame at Russian President Putin for the Malaysia Airlines shoot-down last July, an Australian news show claims to have found the spot where the Russian BUK missile battery made its getaway, but the images don’t match, raising questions of journalistic fakery.

Brian Anse Patrick - The Ten Commandments of Propaganda

Dr. Brian Anse Patrick is a professor of communication at the University of Toledo. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in research methods, group communication, propaganda and persuasion. He is also a nationally recognized expert on American gun culture as well as the author of many scholarly papers and five books, including The Ten Commandments of Propaganda. In this discussion, we start by looking at the definition of propaganda and where it all began. Brian explains the creation of the Committee on Public Information and its role in persuading American public opinion during World War I, an implementation that would shift other propaganda campaigns into full gear. We consider emotion as an element of propaganda, how human behavior is altered through group interaction, and the need for belonging and an explanation of a higher order that motivates people to buy into marketing schemes.

Losing the American Republic

Decades of letting neocons dictate a hawkish foreign policy have put the American Republic in profound danger, just as presidents from George Washington to Dwight Eisenhower predicted, warnings that Americans must finally take to heart...

We may lament our poverty of leadership, but there are ways to make it function. “Princes,” since long before Machiavelli have always used advisers; some even listened to them. Surely the capable people among us — like the “wise men” who whispered in the ears of those earlier leaders — can guide today’s leaders toward more viable policies and away from the chaos that engulfs us.

Domestic US Propaganda: CIA helped make Zero Dark Thirty

WATCH: How the CIA Helped Make “Zero Dark Thirty” Behind the scenes, the CIA secretly worked with the filmmakers, and the movie portrayed the agency’s controversial “enhanced interrogation techniques” — widely described as torture — as a key to uncovering information that led to the finding and killing of bin Laden.
Secrets, Politics and Torture airs Tuesday, May 19 at 10 p.m. EST on PBS (check local listings) and will stream in full, for free, online at pbs.org/frontline.

But in Secrets, Politics and Torture, premiering this Tuesday, May 19 on PBS, FRONTLINE reveals the many challenges to that narrative, and the inside story of how it came to be.

New documentaries probe elaborate cons behind the war on terror ‘mirage’

Before the screening of War of Lies, the film’s German director, Matthias Bittner, was called to the stage and introduced. He said very little, mainly cryptically that “in Germany this film will never be broadcast in a festival – even a student festival – or in a cinema.”

Someone in the audience asked: “Why?”

Bittner didn’t answer. Instead, he shrugged his shoulders and quickly left the stage, pointedly looking at the audience, as if to say: “You decide – after you see the film.”

What the audience saw is that War of Lies exposes, from the inside, that the war on Iraq was based on lies, and that the German security forces were instrumentally involved. From this the audience could infer that this politically embarrassing fact is the reason the German establishment will do all it can to squelch the film.

Obama Gave Up on Ukraine - Press Simply Ignored It

On Tuesday, May 12, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was asked at a press conference in Sochi Russia, to respond to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s recent statements promising renewed war against Donbass, which were made first on April 30, “The war will end when Ukraine regains Donbass and Crimea,” and which were repeated on May 11th, by his saying, “I have no doubt, we will free the [Donetsk] Airport, because it is our land.” In other words, Poroshenko had repeatedly made clear that he plans a third invasion of Donbass, and, ultimately, also to invade and retake Crimea. (The Western press, however, had not reported any of these threats that were being made by Poroshenko.)

In his brilliant analysis in Columbia Journalism Review (3/15/15) of establishment media reaction to Seymour Hersh’s re-examination of the killing of Osama bin Laden (London Review of Books, 5/21/15), the Guardian‘s Trevor Timm notes that one of the put-downs hurled at Hersh to discredit his story is “off the rails”–as in, “In recent years, however, Hersh has appeared increasingly to have gone off the rails,” as Max Fisher put it in his Vox broadside (5/11/15).

US Blinks in Face-Off with Russia

After staring Russia in the face for the best part of a year, the poker-faced Americans finally realized they are holding a bunch of worthless cards. And the Americans blinked.

Last week started with US Secretary of State John Kerry coming to Russia to lay a wreath for the millions of Soviet soldiers who gave their lives in the historic defeat of Nazi Germany. Then the week ended with Kerry’s deputy at the State Department, Victoria Nuland, flying to Moscow to meet Russian officials to discuss implementation of the Minsk ceasefire in Ukraine.

That’s what you might call «America blinking first» in its high-stakes and reckless face-off with Russia over the Ukraine crisis.

We're ruled by a cosy elite who all go to the same dinner parties, says former No10 policy guru chief

David Cameron’s former chief strategist has launched a stinging attack on the ‘insular ruling class’ threatening Britain’s democracy.

Steve Hilton said too many of those at the heart of government go to the same dinner parties and send their children to the same schools.

He said the UK’s political system is now in ‘crisis’ because the same type of people stay in charge whatever the outcome of the elections.

In what will be seen as a criticism of the ‘chumocracy’ of his former boss, Mr Hilton warned: ‘Our democracies are increasingly captured by a ruling class that seeks to perpetuate its privileges.

TLC's Submissive Wives' Guide to Marriage will be the best show ever

"Enter the rarely explored world of submissive wives, where fulfilling one’s husband’s every need is a part of everyday life, with the belief that it only serves to strengthen the marriage. For these women, allowing their husbands to be leaders of the household proves their own trust in them and in God. The hour long special Submissive Wives’ Guide To Marriage chronicles the lives of three married couples, two living in a submissive marriage, and one looking to adapt to this lifestyle to save their marriage."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Claire saw this show and thought it was great. I missed it, and from the title was initially put off. While I have long ago severed any support for feminism following the constant male-bashing always-cry-rape, I see marriage as a partnership. However on reading the reviews of this show (and I will catch the repeat) I have come to understand that the show did not encourage all wives to be submissive, but showcased women who chose a 1950s style marital model and liked it.

I am okay with their making that choice if that is what works. One of my pet peeves with 90s feminism isn't that they wanted women to have a choice to have a career instead of being a house wife, but that all women should want a career, want to leave the house, (in extreme cases, want to be lesbians), and looked on women who wanted to stay home with their children as clearly inferior.

In hindsight, the hijacked latter day gender-feminism (as opposed to the earlier equity-feminism, which we could all agree with) took away one enforced role model for women only to replace it with another. In practical terms, gender-feminism doubled the work force, which doubled the government's taxing opportunities, and made men disposable to send off to wars. In hindsight, it was a repeat of the "Rosie the Riveter" propaganda of WW2.

In the end, it comes down to choice. For women who choose to have a career, go for it! But the same should apply to women who want to be stay-at-home mothers. And I note that the feminists have slammed this show, and are all over social media claiming that women who want to stay at home and raise their children are (direct quote) "worthless leaches."

No, they aren't. Such women contribute to the world in a way the feminists do not approve of, and that is what the feminists are upset about; losing control. No longer being seen as the trend setters.

From an economics point of view, a reversal of the feminist trend makes sense. With jobs in such short supply, a return to the single-job household makes a great deal of sense.

BEX Alert!!! - "Auschwitz 'hell on Earth': RT correspondent spends night at Nazi death camp"

Auschwitz is “hell on Earth,” said RT’s Paula Slier after spending a night at the former Nazi concentration camp where scores of Jews were killed during WWII. The trip was a part of Slier’s documentary, in which she traces her relatives' Holocaust horror.

“It was extremely evocative. Auschwitz [Nazi concentration camp built in occupied Poland] is hell on Earth. And when you go to hell at night and you have the watchtowers and the barbed wire casting their shadows, and almost following you around everywhere, it’s almost terrifying if you like,” Slier said in an interview to RT.

America’s war of words with Russia is no laughing matter

The positive message that the West once offered to Russia during the waning days of the Cold War - democracy, freedom, respect for human dignity - has been replaced by a starkly negative message that encourages confrontation rather than engagement. Instead of telling Russians how great things are in America, the new strategy seems to be telling Russians how terrible things are in their own country. In the lexicon of political campaigns, America is going negative.

The New York Times Endorses Israeli Mass Slaughtering Palestinians by Refusing to Condemn It

The Times supports Israel’s worst crimes – wrongfully blaming them on victims. It outrageously calls Hamas a terrorist organization.

It’s Palestine’s legitimate government – democratically elected in January 2006. Claiming it wants Israel destroyed is false.

It long ago expressed willingness to sacrifice 78% of historic Palestine in return for remaining land within June 1967 borders – with East Jerusalem its exclusive capital.

Joe Scarborough had harsh words for Israel’s actions in Gaza, saying the country was engaging in “indiscriminate” killing.

“This is asinine,” said the MSNBC host and former Republican congressman. “This continued killing of women and children in a way that appears to be indiscriminate is asinine.”

Is Washington Coming To Its Senses? — Paul Craig Roberts

There is much speculation about US Secretary of State John Kerry’s rush visit to Russia in the wake of Russia’s successful Victory Day celebration on May 9. On May 11, Kerry, who was snubbing Russia on the 9th, was on his way to Russia, and Putin consented to see him on May 12.

As time passes we will find out why Kerry was snubbing Putin on May 9 and 3 days later was criticizing Washington’s puppet regime in Ukraine. For what is known at this time, a possible explanation is that Washington is coming to its senses.

How to Fight Western Propaganda - Time for a Creative Revolution

When the most powerful and the most destructive force on earth employs all its persuasive might, utilizing everything from the mainstream media to educational facilities, in order to justify its crimes, when it spreads its poisonous propaganda and lies in order to oppress the world and suppress hope, do we step back and begin endless and detailed work on precise and objective narratives? Or do we confront lies and propaganda with our own narrative, supported by our intuition, passion and dreams for a better world?

Pentagon Paid Sports Franchises to Salute Troops and “Conjure Up Feelings of Patriotism and Pride”

Stadium salutes to soldiers were paid promos for the military machine:

The Pentagon would have to justify the military necessity of spending millions on sports sponsorships under a measure approved Thursday by the Senate.

[…]

“giving taxpayer funds to professional sports teams for activities that are portrayed to the public as paying homage to U.S. military personnel would seem inappropriate.

“Such promotions conjure up feelings of patriotism and pride for most sports fans, and the revelation that these are in fact paid arrangements is disappointing.”

Aipac Wants Congress to Criminalize BDS

Of all the lame-brained, lumpen-brained, hare-brained schemes emanating from Aipac’s lobby shop, this is one of the truly lamest. As Israel forms the most dangerous, aggressive, racist government in its history, Aipac thought this was a good time to remind the American people of that by conniving to amend an already contentious fast-track trade bill with a new amendment that would criminalize BDS in the U.S.

Fox News Correspondent Calls Amtrak Engineer’s Sexuality “A Factor” In Deadly Crash

Bostian is a gay man—cited by some outlets as a “gay activist” because he was active in the fight against California’s Proposition 8. In 2012, he told The Midtown Gazette: “It’s kind of insulting to have to beg people for my right to marry. I feel like we shouldn’t even have to have this fight.”

His sexuality hasn’t been reported on by major media organizations because it’s completely irrelevant.

But it is oddly “interesting” to anti-gay bigots, who’ve been inferring Bostian’s sexuality somehow “caused” the horrific derailment.

Right Wing Watch notes a few extremists linking the two, none as awful as Sandy Rios, the governmental affairs director of the hate group American Family Association and regular Fox News contributor. Today on her AFA radio program, she cited Bostian’s sexuality as “a factor” in the crash.

New York Times sells Israel’s next war

How hard is it for the Israeli military to launch an unprovoked war with its neighbor by casting itself as a victim of barbarianism, rallying international support and even apologizing in advance and exonerating itself for killing innocent civilians? It seems it only takes one phone call to the New York Times.

That’s right, the world’s most powerful newspaper has just published an article wholly inspired and almost entirely narrated by the unverifiable and belligerent claims of Israeli military sources. The article “Israel Says Hezbollah Positions Put Civilians at Risk” casts no serious journalistic or responsible doubt on these Israeli claims made by a military institution that has engaged in wars that have killed tens of thousands of civilians in the past.

The author, Isabel Kershner warns that Israel says “…many Lebanese civilians will probably be killed, and that it should not be considered Israel’s fault.”

Reuters has also published a dispatch under the incendiary title Special Report - Russian soldiers quit over Ukraine, to essentially the same effect.
