Radical Group Behind Culture Purge – American Free Press

June 30, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

It took roughly a century and a half to erect all of the nation’s Confederate monuments. A June 4 report from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) shows that since Dylann Roof shot nine black churchgoers in South Carolina three years ago, back on June 17, 2015, Confederate monuments are being torn down at the rapid pace of about three each month.

Some monuments were removed from prominent locations to great fanfare, like the removal of the Confederate flag from the South Carolina statehouse grounds by former Gov. Nikki Haley or the removal by Mayor Mitch Landrieu of the four Confederate statues in New Orleans. But in most cases, like in Baltimore and in Memphis, city officials secretly removed Confederate monuments in the dead of night.

All told, at least 110 monuments to the Confederacy have been removed across the country in the last three years. Still, according to the same SPLC report, more than 1,728 listed monuments remain. And these do not include references to the Confederacy in museums, or the markers on hundreds of battlefields.

Shangri-La Dialogue: Mattis Hawks Weapons and Hegemony

June 30, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

 

The International Institute for Strategic Studies’s (IISS) annual Shangri-La Dialogue brings together diplomats, ministers, and representatives from around the world to discuss Asian security.

Researchers at Western think tanks including from the IISS itself have been promoting this year’s forum as an opportunity to sell Washington’s re-branded “Indo-Pacific” strategy and the continued primacy of the US and its “rules-based international order” across the region.

IISS researcher Lynn Kuok in her piece, “Shangri-La Dialogue: Negotiating the Indo-Pacific security landscape,” would also attempt to spin America’s strategy as anything but “anti-China.”

Yet US Defense Secretary James Mattis’ remarks at the forum opened almost immediately by referencing the 2018 National Defense Strategy (.pdf) in which China is described as:

Modest Proposal for Trump-Putin Summit on July 16… – Ray McGovern

June 30, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Kudos to former U.S. ambassador to Russia Alexander Vershbow for proposing tangible steps to “reduce the risk of direct conflict” with Russia, while cautioning in his June 25 op-ed that “There is no grand bargain with Putin.” First among Mr. Vershbow’s suggested measures for agreement at a summit was trimming the size of military exercises in Europe.  ( See: Link)

A parallel suggestion was made by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s close aide and spokesman Dmitry Peskov two days after Donald Trump’s election. Mr. Peskov, in New York ostensibly to attend a championship chess match, talked to the Associated Press about “confidence-building measures.” He proposed a “slow down or withdrawal of NATO’s military potential from our borders,” adding that Russia sees “NATO’s muscles . . . getting bigger and bigger and closer.”

How the Iran sanctions drama intersects with OPEC-plus | Asia Times

June 30, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

 

History may have registered stranger geoeconomic bedfellows. But in the current OPEC-plus world, the rules of the game are now de facto controlled by OPEC powerhouse Saudi Arabia in concert with non-OPEC Russia.

Russia may even join OPEC as an associate member. There’s a key clause in the bilateral Riyadh-Moscow agreement stipulating that joint interventions to raise or lower oil production now are the new norm.

Some major OPEC members are not exactly pleased. At the recent meeting in Vienna, three member states – Iran, Iraq and Venezuela – tried, but did not manage to veto the drive for increased production. Venezuela’s production is actually declining. Iran, facing a tacit US declaration of economic war, is hard-pressed to increase production. And Iraq’s will need time to boost output.

Journo-terrorism media now painting Trump VOTERS as “Nazis” who deserve to be murdered in the streets – Dave Hodges – The Common Sense Show

The dishonest establishment media, which has been vicious to President Donald Trump, is now attempting to dehumanize him and his legions of supporters by comparing them to some of the most hated people in Earth’s history.Realizing that, despite more than 16 months’ worth of non-stop negative coverage they can’t crash his approval ratings low enough to justify impeachment or otherwise drive Trump out of office, the media has resorted to comparing his voters to Nazis and white supremacists who are not even worthy of basic courtesies like being able to eat a meal in public in peace.As noted by Grabien News, the pretend media were outraged and triggered when Trump tweeted, “The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!”On CNN, longtime network host Wolf Blitzer lamented, “A lot of his supporters believe that we are the enemy of the American people, and that is really an awful situation. We are not the enemy of the American people. We love the American people.”

Supreme Court: Government Unions Can’t Collect Dues From Non-members

June 29, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

While working a summer job during my college days in the paint shop of Halliburton (we had a lot of red and gray paint) in my hometown of Duncan, Oklahoma, I became involved in a conversation with a strong union advocate. I told him that I thought it was wrong for labor unions to get involved in political issues and campaigns, using forced union dues, because often the issues had little to nothing to do with working conditions for their members.

I specifically cited that the unions had supported Senator George McGovern’s presidential campaign in the most recent election, and that he had lost 49 states. Literally millions of union members had not supported the same candidate as the union bosses. That did not matter, he told me, as some workers are just not smart enough to know what is good for them, and the union leaders (such as himself) must protect them from their own ignorance.

Aprés Ocasio-Cortez, le Deluge – American Renaissance

June 29, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Generals fight the last war. Journalists analyze the last campaign.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 28 years old, defeated Congressman Joe Crowley in the Democrat primary in New York’s 14th district. She will easily win the general election against another old white guy, Republican Anthony Pappas. Most journalists and Democrat politicians are shocked. Republicans are gleeful. All of them are wrong. Miss Ocasio-Cortez is what’s coming.

Miss Ocasio-Cortez ran on a hard-left platform of universal Medicare, abolishing ICE, free college tuition, and a federal universal jobs program. More importantly, she framed her candidacy as a generational and racial changing of the guard. Her campaign posters were bilingual; her ads could be seen as a thinly veiled appeal to racial pride. Her slogan was “It’s time for one of us.”

Never in our history has mass media been so thoroughly infested with “fake news” peddlers as it is today.  Once-credible, reliable sources for news and public affairs information are now rife with cynical partisan propagandists posing as “reporters” and “journalists.”

Given this reality, is it even the slightest bit surprising that 72% of Americans believe the media knowingly and intentionally reports “fake, false or purposely misleading” news stories?

Out of the hordes of fake reporters demolishing their profession, few are as blatantly-biased and immune to facts as Aaron Blake, a Washington Post blogger who doubles as a millennial attack poodle for his corporate leftist establishment masters.

For Nancy Pelosi, 78, Steny Hoyer, 79, and Joe Biden, 75, the primary results from New York’s 14th congressional district are a fire bell in the night.

All may be swept away in the coming revolution. That is the message of the crushing defeat of 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley, who had aspired to succeed Pelosi and become speaker of the House.

The No. 4 House Democrat, Crowley, 56, had not faced primary opposition since 2004. He outspent his opponent, 28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who was tending bar a year ago, by 10 to one.

Two Views of the Putin/Trump Summit — Paul Craig Roberts – PaulCraigRoberts.org

The meeting that the Deep State strived to make impossible with fabricated “Russiagate” assertions and an orchestrated “investigation” by Mueller has now been set in place by no less that Deep State neocon operative John Bolton. Patrick Lang explains how this came about: Link

Many see benefits from the Putin/Trump meeting. For example: Link

Putin himself sees benefits in the meeting as does Trump. Putin sees hope of improving relations between the two governments. Of course, the “strained relations” are entirely due to Washington, which has demonized both Russia and Putin with false accusations and hostile acts such as illegal sanctions. It was miscalculation for Washington to expect Russia to give up its Black Sea naval base to Washington’s coup in Ukraine.

Four of the FIVE EYES blocking intelligence sharing with US | Intrepid Report.com

June 28, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Four of the five signals intelligence members of the FIVE EYES alliance are increasing their use of special handling caveats to deny intelligence to the United States—the fifth member of the grouping. According to intelligence community insiders, the presence of certain individuals within the Trump administration has resulted in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, known as “Second Parties” to the Five Eyes partnership, embargoing critical intelligence sharing with Washington. These second parties fear their sensitive intelligence could be compromised to a number of hostile and non-trusted intelligence powers with ties into the White House. These include Israel, Russia, China, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Ukraine.

Suspected agents-of-influence for Israel, including Donald Trump’s special adviser Jared Kushner, his son-in-law; special White House international negotiator Jason Greenblatt; and Trump’s ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, have prompted the “FOUR EYES” to restrict classified intelligence that deals with sensitive sources and methods, particularly in the Middle East, and prevent it from being shared with the U.S. National Security Agency and Central Intelligence Agency. Trump administration officials who have close business relationships with Russia, China, or Ukraine, including Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, are also seen as potential leakers of foreign government-derived intelligence to hostile espionage services.

Did Sen. Warner and Comey ‘Collude’ on Russia-gate? – Consortiumnews

June 28, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

An explosive report by investigative journalist John Solomon on the opinion page of Monday’s edition of The Hill sheds a bright light on how Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and then-FBI Director James Comey collaborated to prevent WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange from discussing “technical evidence ruling out certain parties [read Russia]” in the controversial leak of Democratic Party emails to WikiLeaks during the 2016 election.

A deal that was being discussed last year between Assange and U.S. government officials would have given Assange “limited immunity” to allow him to leave the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he has been exiled for six years. In exchange, Assange would agree to limit through redactions “some classified CIA information he might release in the future,” according to Solomon, who cited “interviews and a trove of internal DOJ documents turned over to Senate investigators.” Solomon even provided a copy of the draft immunity deal with Assange.

Hillary Clinton, US imperialism, and criminal cronyism

As tens of thousands gather at our southern border, roiling US politics, the question arises: why are so many of the asylum-seekers and migrants crossing the border illegally from three Central American countries in particular: El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala?

To begin with, it’s no coincidence that these are the three “most invaded” countries south of the Rio Grande – that is, invaded by the United States and its proxies.

Tenth Amendment Center | Supreme Court Offers Opinion, Doesn’t Make Law

June 28, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Whenever state laws are overturned by the Supreme Court, such decisions are often cited as repudiation against any sort of argument for their legitimacy. While case law is regularly debated, the court’s constitutional power to make such reversals is rarely questioned. Courtly precedents are usually referenced in support of such actions rather than a constitutional basis.

But the power to offer opinion does not equal the power to make law. While today, most believe that Supreme Court justices carry an aura of infallibility in doing so, that perception was not always so clairvoyant.

The Constitution grants very little power to the federal judiciary for a reason. Since British history was rife with treacherous kings who packed the royal courts with those who would innately endorse their aims, the founders embraced the separation of powers doctrine espoused by Charles de Montesquieu for a reason. The judges serve for life to separate them from kingly and pragmatic interests, not for assurances of power.

How John Brennan led the CIA to hack the Senate | Roger Stone | Stone Cold Truth

June 27, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Former CIA Director John Brennan said yesterday that President Donald Trump should be removed from office due to his mental stability. It Brennan who’s mental stability- and loyalty to the United States and it’s Constitution are in question.

As CIA Director Brennan penetrated and spied on a US Senate Committee investigating torture by the CIA.

“Patently absurd,” said Senator Harry Reid. “It violates the US constitution,” is how Senator Mark Udall described it. Senator Angus King of Maine went even further and said that “it violated both the spirit and the letter of the constitutional separation of powers.”

It is hard to believe that these Democrats are talking about the Obama appointed CIA chief John Brennan under whose leadership the CIA hacked the computers of their Congressional overseers.

The kosher slaughter of the American mind – John Kaminski

June 27, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Kosher slaughterhouses in South America still use the barbaric ‘tie and raise’ method, which causes great suffering to animals before their deaths. Former Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger (now in prison) said he is opposed to this slaughter method and has expressed his discontent. Link

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) described the method Jews use to slaughter animals as “prolonged suffering and nightmarish deaths.” This torture qualifies these debauched creatures to be sold as kosher.

Halacha (Jewish law) claims to minimize animals’ suffering. “The shochet kills the animal with a quick, deep stroke across the throat with a sharp knife. When performed properly, shechita appears all but painless and quickly renders the animal unconscious.”

Imagine living in a country where armed soldiers crash through doors to arrest and imprison citizens merely for criticizing government officials.

Imagine that in this very same country, you’re watched all the time, and if you look even a little bit suspicious, the police stop and frisk you or pull you over to search you on the off chance you’re doing something illegal.

Keep in mind that if you have a firearm of any kind while in this country, it may get you arrested and, in some circumstances, shot by police.

If you’re thinking this sounds like America today, you wouldn’t be far wrong.

How Long Can The Federal Reserve Stave Off the Inevitable? — Paul Craig Roberts – PaulCraigRoberts.org

June 27, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

When are America’s global corporations and Wall Street going to sit down with President Trump and explain to him that his trade war is not with China but with them? The biggest chunk of America’s trade deficit with China is the offshored production of America’s global corporations. When the corporations bring the products that they produce in China to the US consumer market, the products are classified as imports from China.

Six years ago when I was writing The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism, I concluded on the evidence that half of US imports from China consist of the offshored production of US corporations. Offshoring is a substantial benefit to US corporations because of much lower labor and compliance costs. Profits, executive bonuses, and shareholders’ capital gains receive a large boost from offshoring. The costs of these benefits for a few fall on the many—the former American employees who formerly had a middle class income and expectations for their children.
