Venezuelan Stand-Off – Antiwar.com Original – Justin Raimondo

May 6, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

The war over Venezuela is about to take a new turn, with most of the fighting taking place in the form of dueling policy papers while the soldiers on both sides of the barricades are stuck in the trenches, not attacking but merely defending what they already have.

Insofar as the rebels are concerned, their assets consist chiefly of a Potemkin Village of international endorsements from American allies and the American media. These are the so-called Sofa Samurai, which were supposed to be hailing the would-be success of “President” Juan Guaido as his civilian partisans appealed to the military to switch sides and align themselves with “the people.”

Yet these wannabe Samurai never seemed to get off the sofa: ignored and jeered at by the military, they have focused their efforts on the American embassy in Caracas where an ongoing back-and-forth has been taking place, but only minor violence. The rebels were slated to march to the Embassy while cheering crowds were supposedly scheduled to greet them with flowers. None of that happened. Instead, the jeering continued and there was no break in the stand-off.

Chinese Laser Attack on U.S. Aircraft Left Out of Pentagon Report – Bill Gertz

May 6, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

The Pentagon’s latest report on the Chinese military fails to mention a laser attack that damaged the eyes of American military aircrews near a Chinese military base in Africa last year in an apparent bid to preserve the controversial military exchange program with Beijing.

The annual report to Congress on military and security developments regarding China mentions a few provocative Chinese military actions, such as a Chinese warship’s near-collision with the guided-missile destroyer USS Decatur in the South China Sea last year that defense officials said appeared designed as a PLA navy ramming operation.

The report also notes the decision by the Pentagon to disinvite the PLA from sending naval forces to the Rim of the Pacific international naval exercises in response to China’s continued militarization of disputed islands in the South China Sea.

America Needs A Debt Jubilee – Paul Craig Roberts

May 6, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

In America today the population is drowning in unpayable debts—student loan debt, credit card debt, home mortgage debt, state and local government debt, and business debt—but policymakers have reserved forgiveness only for the debt associated with the bad and irresponsible investments of the big banks and financial institutions. The Federal Reserve printed $4 trillion to buy up the banks’ bad debt while permitting ten million homeowners to be foreclosed. Student loan debt prevents university graduates from forming independent households. Mortgage and credit card debt prevents households from having discretionary income with which to drive retail sales. But modern day economics has no prescription for preventing our society from failing from debt overload.

America long ago lost its independent farmers to debt overload. All it took was a drought, or a dustbowl, or the Fed driving up interest rates on loans, and farmers were foreclosed and the farm properties passed to corporate farming. Today the same thing is happening to dairy producers. Canada’s response to Trump’s tariffs is to place tariffs on US dairy products. The earnings drop leaves American dairy farmers overburdened with debt service. This business, too, seems destined to be concentrated in a few hands. Economic independence is being driven out of American society.

NWO’s Pope Francis And His Soros-Inspired Globalism, Islamofascism – News With Views – Jim Kouri

Following the surprise election of outsider Donald Trump to our nation’s highest elective office — a victory that sent shivers up and down the spines of the Washington, D.C. denizens — the elites realized they were in a fight for their very existence and their religious zeal is misplaced by the left’s adherence to principles — abortion, euthanasia, homosexual

The American people will never know how many tears were shed over their precious Hillary Clinton’s failure to win an election on Nov. 6, 2016. The socialists suddenly found that they needed to revise the plan emanating from the Deep State controllers and contributors so that they could push their radical leftist laws, regulations and policies.

Information gleaned from Julian Assange’s WikiLeaks release of Hillary Clinton’s and her campaign manager John Podesta’s emails, and DCLeaks documents from George Soros’ own Open Society Foundation corroborate that Soros’ private intelligence operatives” secretly met with top Vatican cardinals, according to the documents obtained by Conservative Base’s editor Jim Kouri.

Mainstream Media Goes Berserk

May 6, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

The practice of objective journalism has been effectively banned from the body politik. The social culture is driven by the embodiment of an unceasing drumbeat of disinformation; spoon fed prevarications and carefully shaped distortions, projected by a mass media that is in the tank for protecting the ruling elite. The myth that the press is endowed with an inherent courage to confront the establishment has been laid bare for any honest observer to witness. However, the problem is that the bulk of the marginally functioning intellects that still accept the mind control of the corporate media, continue to linger on in their dream world of obeying the prevailing order.
