We restarted the Cold War: The real story about the NATO buildup that the New York Times won’t tell you

As of this week, leaders who know nothing about leading, thinkers who do not think and opinion-shaping poseurs such as Tom Friedman are confident enough in their case to sally forth with it: The Cold War returns, the Russians have restarted it and we must do the right thing—the right thing being to bring NATO troops and materiel up to Russia’s borders, pandering to the paranoia of the former Soviet satellites as if they alone have access to some truth not available to the rest of us.

James Stavridis, the former admiral and NATO commander, quoted in Wednesday’s New York Times: “I don’t think we’re in the Cold War again—yet. I can kind of see it from here.”

I can kind of see it, too, Admiral, and cannot be surprised: NATO has missed the Cold War since the Wall came down and the Pentagon’s creature in Europe commenced a quarter-century of wandering in search of useful enemies. At last, the very best of them is back.

State Dept. admits Hillary Clinton may have lied about Benghazi emails

With the U.S. Supreme Court's Obamacare decision on Thursday getting enormous media attention, hardly any news coverage was given to the State Department conceding that it received 15 emails involving Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton it did not previously possess on the Benghazi terrorist attack and its aftermath, according to the House Select Committee on Benghazi's chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, on Thursday night. In essence, it shows that Hillary Clinton, once again, is alleged to have lied about the emails she claims she turned over to the State Department from her possibly illegal Internet server.

Benghazi panel says Hillary Clinton didn’t turn over all Libya emails, despite her claims

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton didn’t turn over all of her work-related emails to the department despite her claims to have done so, the Benghazi investigative committee charged Thursday in a statement raising new questions about the Democratic presidential candidate’s email practices.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Republican and the Benghazi panel chairman, said the State Department informed his panel that it did not have in its possession some emails related to Benghazi and Libya that Mrs. Clinton had exchanged with longtime confidant Sidney Blumenthal, and which he turned over to the committee.

Wikileaks Exposes Obama's Fake Trade Deal - Only 5 Of The 29 Chapters Are Actually About Trade

Wikileaks has managed to get a hold of the highly secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership deal and reveals what has been reported for years – this deal is hardly about trade at all. Up till now, any cry that this was a sovereignty killer was simply regarded as conspiracy theory.
With the contents now exposed, we can see that there is no theory here it all: It is a fasist coup for any country that signs it.

US Double Standards on UNHRC treatment: Sri Lanka & Israel

Sri Lanka and Israel have been both accused of violating international humanitarian law (IHL) and international human rights law (IHRL) at UN Human Rights Commission in Geneva, but in dealing with these two nations the United States has taken two contradictory positions: the US has supported the Israeli decision to boycott the UNHRC sessions that discuss Israeli violations while the US was critical of the previous Rajapaksa regime's decision to maintain a distance from the Geneva process. U.S. Ambassador-designate to Sri Lanka Atul Keshap

Israel refused entry to a UNHRC official for investigation of alleged violations in the Gaza Strip during its battle with Hamas.

In fact, the US sponsored three resolutions critical the manner in which Sri Lanka handled the final stages of the military battle against the secessionist Tamil Tigers bringing accountability and transparency into the debate and deliberations.

It is becoming more and more apparent that the Islamic State for Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), or “Daesh” as it is known in Arabic, or ISIS – the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham — preferred by Israel supporters because of the uncomforting similarity between “Israel” and “ISIL” – is part of another Central Intelligence Agency operation to artificially create a new “strategy of tensions” for the Eurasian and African land masses.

Hillary wraps up New York fundraising swing with private shopping trip to ultra-expensive Bergdorf Goodman one day after boasting about her plans to help 'poor people, people of color, and the elderly'

Hillary Clinton's rhetoric may skew toward supporting the downtrodden, but her shopping tastes are strictly LIfestyles of the Rich and Famous.

The Democratic presidential front-runner was phoographed Wednesday morning in wind-swept New York City emerging from the ultra-high-end Bergdorf Goodman department store and getting into her armored black 'Scooby' van with chief of staff Huma Abedin and a contingent of Secret Service agents.

'Bergdorf's,' as New Yorkers with gobs of disposable income call it, is Manhattan's ground zero for expensive brands like Gucci, Valentino, Prada and Louboutin, whose signature red-soled shoes can go for $1,000 or more per pair.

It's Official -- Bernie Sanders Has Overtaken Hillary Clinton In the Hearts and Minds of Democrats

According to PBS, Bernie Sanders is "gaining against Clinton in early polls." Salon's Bill Curry believes "Hillary Clinton is going lose," primarily because millions of voters longing for a truly progressive candidate will nominate Sanders. POLITICO explained recently that Early-state polls hint at a Bernie Sanders surge, a headline that was unthinkable only several months earlier. Yahoo's Meredith Shiner calls Sanders a "progressive social media star and pragmatic legislator" and states that "Sanders also has a much more substantial legislative history" than any GOP challenger. In Iowa, 1,100 people packed a gym to hear Bernie Sanders speak in May.

Israel lobby pushing US to thwart nuclear deal with Iran: Analyst

The powerful Israel lobby in the United States is seeking to forestall a nuclear agreement with Iran and ignite another war in the Middle East, a political commentator in Los Angeles says.

“The problem that we have right now in America with people like John Kerry, the secretary of state, of course, is that you have a lot of Zionist influence, said James Morris, editor of America-hijacked.com, a blog charting the influence of the Jewish lobby.

“The Israel lobby is working overtime to try to get a war going with Iran,” Morris told Press TV on Thursday. “It seems that we are on a path to another war for Israel in the Middle East.”

American Abrams Battle Tanks Fire in Bulgaria for First Time

American battle tanks will be deployed to Bulgaria this weekend and conduct live-fire exercises across the Black Sea from Russia for the first time.

As part of a maneuver dubbed "Power Shock," the pair of M1A2 Abrams battle tanks are scheduled to be flown from Ramstein Air Base in Germany to the Novo Selo training area in Bulgaria. They'll be joined by 15 U.S. Army soldiers from the "Speed and Power" battalion out of Fort Stewart, Georgia.

The training exercise is part of a series of NATO war games taking place at Europe's eastern borders in the wake of Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region. Earlier this week, Vladimir Putin announced that Russia would add more than 40 new intercontinental ballistic missiles to its nuclear arsenal this year.

Yes, the war on terror was designed as a nebulous pile of dung that was never meant to ever end. You can’t win a war against an ideal.

And apparently now this war is being fought with show business… because that’s what war is.

Someone somewhere who cannot distinguish between what they see on television and what happens in real life is going to say the following is a heartless, disgusting article to write.

However, we live in a heartless, disgusting world where modern propaganda, false flags, and psyops have gotten to the point that they look like they are being directed by Michael Bay.

As if the videos of some of the so-called ISIS beheadings weren’t questionable enough. As if the news media reporting that ISIS is luring Western women into their dark nightmare world with Nutella and kittens wasn’t ridiculous enough.

Now we are given this.

Breaking: Supreme Court Approves Obamacare Subsidies

Last year, a federal appeals court ruled against the legality of some Obamacare subsidies that were issued to people who bought insurance through HealthCare.gov. The language in Obamacare actually restricts subsidies to state-run exchanges.

Only 17 states ran their own exchanges. The federal government took over for the states that opted out of operating their own exchanges – and the court’s ruling says that the federal government may not pay subsidies for insurance plans in those states.

The issue found its way to the Supreme Court, which announced its decision on those subsidies today...

Supreme Court approves Obamacare subsidies on HealthCare.gov

Obamacare just survived a potentially fatal heart attack.

In a major decision, the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday ruled in a 6-3 decision that the federal subsidies that help nearly 6.4 million people pay for their Obamacare health plans are legal under the Affordable Care Act.

The ruling avoids what many analysts predicted would be a nightmare scenario if the plaintiffs had won: individual plan insurance prices skyrocketing in two-thirds of the United States, and the loss of health coverage for upwards of 8 million people in states served by the federal insurance marketplace HealthCare.gov by next year.

Today I Saw a Weeping Palestinian Man Holding a Plastic Bag of Meat: It Was His Son

I sense I’m breaking an unspoken rule with this letter, but I can’t keep quiet any more.

Today I saw a picture of a weeping Palestinian man holding a plastic carrier bag of meat. It was his son. He’d been shredded (the hospital’s word) by an Israeli missile attack – apparently using their fab new weapon, flechette bombs. You probably know what those are – hundreds of small steel darts packed around explosive which tear the flesh off humans. The boy was Mohammed Khalaf al-Nawasra. He was 4 years old.

I suddenly found myself thinking that it could have been one of my kids in that bag, and that thought upset me more than anything has for a long time.

Then I read that the UN had said that Israel might be guilty of war crimes in Gaza, and they wanted to launch a commission into that. America won’t sign up to it.

Rubio, a Republican presidential candidate, was the deciding vote necessary for the U.S. Senate to clear the final 60-vote threshold and eventually, later this week, send to President Barack Obama’s desk the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) bill that would fast-track at least three highly secretive trade deals that Obama has been negotiating for years.

Rep.

Trapping Russia to Prove a Negative

The prove-a-negative trap is the Big Lie technique of Nazi propagandist Josef Goebbels: there is no substance to the allegations and there is no obligation to present evidence to verify, thanks to the dutiful and unquestioning nature of Western corporate “journalism”.

The United States and its Western allies are trying to ensnare Russia in an audacious disinformation trap over the Ukraine conflict. That trap involves imposing an insoluble conundrum on Vladimir Putin’s government, which we might call “prove a negative”. It is a familiar conceptual device that Washington has used elsewhere, against Iraq and Iran for example, in order to pursue what are otherwise illegitimate geopolitical aims.Russia is being held up as the guilty party that is undermining the shaky Minsk ceasefire; and Western economic sanctions are being extended “until Russia implements the ceasefire”.

The Myth of Global ‘Free’ Trade

The key to TTIP is the so-called Investor-State Dispute Settlement mechanism that essentially gives corporations free reign to sue governments using a “failure to implement” provision, if state policies or legislation interfere with profits. But is this all about trade?

There was a direct, crucial “secret” agenda linking the G7 meeting in Germany and the Bilderberg meeting in Austria last week; the advancement of the virtually secret negotiations towards the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the massive free trade agreement between the US and the EU.

Even though the corporate powers behind TTIP are itching for a deal to be reached before the end of 2015, serious (negotiation) trouble remains.

On Saturday, June 20, radio talk show host and alternative news figurehead Alex Jones released an “emergency alert” videocast on YouTube stating that the “elite are now evacuating” the United States ahead of Jade Helm 15, which Jones now says is not a drill.

In the USA – “I Cannot Write!”

The West is finished, its culture dead. What is left is unattractive, even horrifying. There is no heart, no compassion, and no creativity.

It was the first time in many years that I had missed my column, my essays, for several weeks.

I was shocked by the state in which I found the United States.

I couldn’t breath. I lost the ability to write. I felt anger building inside me. The anger was suffocating, strangling me. It was unhealthy anger, mixed with frustration! It was not that sacred anger one feels when going to a battle against great evil. It was also somehow petty, indescribable, and pathetic. It was breaking me, humiliating me.

I hated the fights I had to fight here.

I tried to see the reality that was surrounding me with different eyes but wherever I looked I saw only a dysfunctional, sad, collapsing country and culture.

This visit broke me. It exhausted me. It thoroughly depressed me.

Jens Stoltenberg: NATO’s Mr Zig-Zag

So, who is rattling sabres here?

Obviously, the NATO alliance is on a dangerous, threatening roll toward Russia’s borders. American-led war games, thousands of troops and tanks, missiles, warplanes and warships have proliferated at dizzying speed over the past year, from the Baltic to the Black Sea. Currently, NATO is conducting its biggest-ever war manoeuvres in the Baltic region, and yet when Russia takes reasonable defensive measures, Stoltenberg accuses Moscow of sabre-rattling. Just this week, prior to the Russian ICBM announcement, the Pentagon told the Paris Air Show that it was considering the stationing of its new generation of stealth F-22 and F-35 fighter jets in Europe – another contravention in a whole series of audacious contraventions of the 1997 Russia-NATO Founding Act which forbids such NATO military expansion.

Alison Weir Replies to JVP Leaders’ McCarthy-like Attacks

I hope JVP will desist from its attacks on those it dislikes, and will instead focus on the often excellent work it is doing and that its members want.

I feel strongly that we all contribute important things to the movement for justice and peace in Palestine.It is time to stop fighting among ourselves, for JVP and others to stop their witch hunts against deeply committed writers and activists, for JVP to stop its attempted censorship and domination of the Palestine movement, and for all of us to get on with our desperately important work.

That’s what I intend to do.

Jesse Ventura 2016 Campaign Website

Although it is great that Jesse has a new show on ORA, called "Off the Grid", it was really nice to hear him on Coast to Coast on March 25th. Like he says "I'm off the grid". It has seemed he has been a bit silent lately, but of course I forget that he still spends 5 months a year in Mexico. I really can't fault him for that. I actually envy him.

It is becoming increasing clear to me and I am sure Jesse knows that there is no way that the , lets say, the powers that be, will let him get in serious contention for a presidential run. As it was with Ron Paul, so it continues.

Unbelievable as it may sound, I have good information to believe that it will be Clinton vs. Bush and Bush will win. The current system as it is now, and if it continues will collapse. That is what they are getting ready for. Jade Helm, data collection, violating the Constitution in unimaginable ways.

The President Gets it Wrong Once Again -- Guns are actually saving lives

Just hours after the tragic shooting in a South Carolina church, President Barack Obama resumed his fanatical war on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners.

“Now’s the time for mourning and for healing, but let’s be clear -- at some point we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries,” Obama said.

Really? Has the President forgotten just some of the foreign massacres that have taken place during his presidency -- shootings that claimed far more lives than the nine which were tragically lost in South Carolina? How about:

The attacks from earlier this year -- which began at Charlie Hebdo in Paris and continued for 48 hours around the region -- that resulted in 17 people being murdered;
Or the Anders Breivik murders in Norway in 2011 where 77 people were murdered -- 69 of them with firearms;

Putin: Unilateral US withdrawal from ABM treaty pushing Russia toward new arms race

Global decisions like the US pulling out of a treaty banning strategic anti-ballistic missile defenses are pushing the world towards a new Cold War, Russian President Vladimir Putin said. Military conflicts have a far lesser impact, he added.

“Not military conflicts but global decisions like the US unilateral withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty lead to a Cold War,” Putin said. “This more in fact pushes us to a new round of the arms race, because it changes the global security system.”

The Democratic Platform: Hillary and Bernie

Any presidential candidate faces broad challenges in illuminating the harsh injustices of our country and endorsing specific policies to fix them. Yet this is precisely what our leaders must do to create a nation of justice and opportunity.

We live in a nation of two- (or more tiers) of experience: drinking bottled versus toxic tap water, eating organic vs. dangerous food, speeding by on privatized roads vs. sitting in traffic, accessing good vs. failing schools, and escaping or falling prey to a web of banking fraud and predatory corporate practices. Yet the ensconced economic elite makes or influences the rules.

The wealthy take for granted – as we all should — that they are relatively protected from global shocks, that their bodily sanctity will be protected, and that traditional government services like infrastructure and education will help their families thrive.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is one way for Hillary to keep Bernie out of her path!

House Prepares for TPA Re-Vote

The House is moving forward with a plan that would get Trade Promotion Authority to the president’s desk by using indirect assurances that a related worker-training bill will also, eventually, be signed into law.

The House Rules Committee was in an emergency meeting Wednesday, and House and Senate Democrats appeared to be on board with a plan that would advance TPA (technically) without Trade Adjustment Assistance, which aids workers displaced by international trade. House Democrats strongly support TAA, but voted it down last week in a gambit to derail the entire fast-track trade authority package.

“The System is Broken”: Americans No Longer Believe In Its Institutions

There is plenty of good reason, with evidence uncovered daily, weekly and consistently throughout the years of the hypocrisy and failures of government, the failed promises of politicians, the lies and spin of the mainstream media and newspapers, the greed and exploitation of the financial sector and the “just us” mentality of above-the-law enforcers who are supposed to uphold justice.

Obama’s Unilateral Presidency Crashes Into the Constitution

Bam! That’s the sound of President Obama smacking head first into our nation’s system of checks and balances. It turns out that you actually can’t run the country all by yourself, even if you’re the smartest fellow in the room. That’s proving quite a shock to our legacy-hungry commander in chief, who is responding to various setbacks with increasing indignation and hauteur. But, never, ever, moderation.

Mr. Obama has pursued an ambitious agenda since he entered the White House, increasingly acting alone. Ever since he won passage of Obamacare in 2010 through an odious series of back-room favors, and then got burned looking for a “Grand Bargain” on the budget with House Speaker John Boehner, he has eschewed the normal horse-trading with Congress and chosen to govern instead through executive actions and regulations.

Like his older brother, Jeb struggles mightily with his native tongue. He also seems to have a hopelessly disjointed approach to foreign affairs.

Stuxnet-Like Digital Attack on Iran Nuclear Talks May Have Come from Israel, Security Researchers Say

Moscow-based technical security company Kaspersky Lab last week revealed evidence of a new cyber attack on both its own network and those of several European hotels that hosted nuclear negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 (US, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany) last year.

This follows a March 2015 Wall Street Journal report that revealed senior White House officials knew Israel was spying on talks surrounding Iran's nuclear program. The report explained, “the spying operation was part of a broader campaign by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government to penetrate the negotiations and then help build a case against the emerging terms of the deal.”

China Rising — Pepe Escobar

Americans have to eventually share their preeminent position with China.”

As intellectual acumen and cross-cultural expertise go, it would be hopeless to expect self-described “Don’t Do Stupid Stuff” Obama administration foreign policy advisers — as well as Pentagon functionaries/hacks — to understand the complexities of China.

For instance, they would be incapable of evaluating all the myriad ramifications included in Professor Alfred McCoy’s masterful deconstruction of US-China geopolitics.

“The US cannot stop China’s rise. It just has to live with a bigger China, which will be completely novel for the US, as no country has ever been big enough to challenge its position. China will be able to do so in 20 to 30 years.” (Lee said that at the Future China Global Forum in Singapore, in 2011. Under Xi, China is already challenging the U.S.’s position.)

Syriza: Plunder, Pillage and Prostration

How the ‘Hard Left’ embraces the policies of the Hard Right

Greece has been in the headlines of the world’s financial press for the past five months, as a newly elected leftist party, ‘Syriza’, which ostensibly opposes so-called ‘austerity measures’, faces off against the “Troika” (International Monetary Fund, the European Commission and European Central Bank).

Early on, the Syriza leadership, headed by Alexis Tsipras, adopted several strategic positions with fatal consequences – in terms of implementing their electoral promises to raise living standards, end vassalage to the ‘Troika’ and pursue an independent foreign policy.

We will proceed by outlining the initial systemic failures of Syriza and the subsequent concessions further eroding Greek living standards and deepening Greece’s role as an active collaborator of US and Israeli imperialism.

We start at the G7 in the Bavarian Alps – rather G1 with an added bunch of “junior partners” – as US President Barack Obama gloated about his neo-con induced feat; regiment the EU to soon extend sanctions on Russia even as the austerity-ravaged EU is arguably hurting even more than Russia.

The “civilized” G1 + junior partners could not possibly argue whether they would collectively risk a nuclear war on European soil over a Kiev-installed ‘Banderastan’, sorry, “Russian aggression.”

Showdown Between Judge Sullivan and IRS This Week…Expect Fireworks and Possible Criminal Charges

The IRS sent emails to the White House containing confidential taxpayer information. Congress wants those emails as well as Cause of Action, who filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for them. Sending out taxpayer’s confidential information is a federal crime. So, when will the emails be handed over? Never. Jacob Lew of the Treasury Department refuses to turn them over because………….drum roll, please. They contain confidential taxpayer information. Duh!

Those emails are proof that a federal crime was committed. The IRS refuses to turn their copies over, the White House, through the Treasury Department refuses to turn their copies over and the Department of Justice has refused to investigate.

US and Israel Bar Palestinian Filmmaker From NYC Film Premiere About Intifada Cows

The annual Human Rights Watch International Film Festival is underway here in New York City, but one of its featured directors won’t be able to attend his film’s US premiere this weekend. That’s because Israel recently deemed Palestinian filmmaker Amer Shomali a "security threat" and prevented him from traveling to Jerusalem to obtain a US visa. Then he went to Amman, Jordan, where the US approved a visa but said their visa machine was broken. Shomali had previously attended half a dozen European festivals without incident, and his film has drawn international acclaim.

Ukrainians Dispossessed, Americans are next — Paul Craig Roberts

Americans are already dispossessed of their livelihoods and careers and their pensions are next. Wherever we look, the fate of populations under Western influence are the same. The Ukrainians are exploited, the Greeks, the British, the Americans.

Apologists for exploitation claim that the rich are richer because they are smarter. But the stupidity of the rich is everywhere visible. The greedy fools have destroyed their domestic US market. Really, how stupid can you be? How do Americans buy when they are forced by offshoring out of well paid manufacturing and software engineering jobs into being waitresses, bartenders, retail clerks and part-time Walmart workers in order that corporate bottom lines improve? Who buys the stuff that sustains the profits? Not Americans who no longer have the incomes to do so.

Mr. President, the answer is not government, conversely, the problem is government. A government that has doubled the national debt, increased unemployment, lowered take home pay, increased food stamp participation and disability claims and introduced socialized medicine.

Foreign Policy Nightmare: President Lindsey Graham Would Go To War in Iraq AND Syria

If you want to avoid war, Lindsey Graham has some news for you – do not bother voting for him.

In an interview with Fox News, the would-be Republican Presidential Candidate said this:

“I’m trying to tell the American people, the Republican primary voter: The only way I know to defend this country is to send some of us back to Iraq and eventually to Syria to dig these guys out of the ground, destroy the caliphate, kill as any of them as you can, hold territory and help people over there help themselves.”

Obama-backed trade bill fails in the House

“To the surprise of very few, another procedural snafu has emerged,” Earnest said in an attempt to play down the outcome.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The video of Press Secretary Josh Earnest (that's gotta be a made up name for that position) is where it's revealed Obama views Americans expressing their views about the laws of the country and participating in their government as a "procedural snafu."

Obama’s Stupid Propaganda Stuff

Obama spouts stupid propaganda stuff that is ultimately damaging to the American Republic.

President Barack Obama must know better regarding the crisis in Ukraine, but he insists on reciting the propaganda lines drafted by his neoconservative and “liberal interventionist” advisers blaming everything on Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Watching his behavior in the White House over the past six-plus years, I’ve come to suspect that – if he had been a national politician amid the Iraq War fever – he would have gotten in line just like ambitious Sens. Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and Joe Biden did. Even as President, a position that gives him enormous power to push back against Official Washington’s “group think,” he won’t.

Hillary's star-studded bash replaced Rangel's party at the Plaza Hotel

It would be understandable if Rep. Charles Rangel feels a bit peeved that Hillary Clinton is throwing a star-studded fundraiser for her presidential campaign June 27 at the Plaza Hotel.

It was supposed to be Mr. Rangel’s party.

According to an insider, the longtime Harlem congressman had planned to throw his annual birthday fundraiser at the same venue, on the same night, with the same stars—Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett, and, yes, Hillary Clinton.

But somehow it became a Hillary for America event. Tickets start at $2,700.

WPost Plays Ukraine’s Lapdog

Ukraine’s Prime Minister Yatsenyuk and Finance Minister Jaresko are on a U.S. trip to drum up weapons and money to crush the ethnic Russian resistance in the east – and they are finding a lapdog U.S. press that won’t ask them tough questions.

There once was a time when the U.S. news media investigated U.S. imperial adventures overseas, such as Washington-sponsored coups. Journalists also asked tough questions to officials implicated in corruption even if those queries were inconvenient to the desired propaganda themes. But those days are long gone, as the Washington Post demonstrated again this week.
