CNN fake news about Julian Assange | Intrepid Report.com – Stephen Lendman

CNN stands out as the most untrustworthy name in airing utter rubbish masquerading as television news—featuring a daily drumbeat of managed news misinformation, disinformation, and Big Lies.

Though time and again it’s hard distinguishing between its deplorable programming and what’s featured on other cable channels and broadcast ones, including abroad in other Western nations and Israel.

The UK owned and operated BBC resembles Fox News with a British accent, state-supported propaganda its specialty.

How Britain’s special relationship with America became lopsided | Intrepid Report.com – Linda S. Heard

July 17, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

The fact is that London is reliant on Washington in terms of defence capabilities, intelligence sharing, international diplomacy and economic cooperation. The days when Britons ruled the waves are long gone. Budget cuts have halved the Royal Navy’s fleet of ships and submarines since 1990.

A House of Commons Defence Committee Report titled Indispensable allies: US, Nato and UK Defence Relations suggests that Britain is “over-reliant on the US as a military partner” and “the degree of over-reliance could be measured by the UK’s ability to act independently in pursuit of its own national interest, without US support”.

Pompeo, Bolton, Pence, and Netanyahu address Christian fascist group for Israel | Intrepid Report.com – Stephen Lendman

July 11, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

The John Hagee-led Christians United for Israel (CUFI) is a lunatic-fringe, hard-right Christian fascist religious fundamentalist group—seeking theocratic dominion in the US, allying with neocons in Washington in pursuit of its objectives.

Its messianic mission cloaks itself deceptively in Christian values and patriotism. Some critics call its leadership the Christian mafia. The group is well-funded by wealthy and powerful US right-wing elements.

Sara Diamond wrote extensively on right-wing extremist groups in America, including the anti-communist movement, hard-right segregationists, bipartisan neocons in Washington, and evangelical Christian fascists, Mike Pence a card-carrying member.

Hawkish US media have an Iran problem | Intrepid Report.com – Stephen Lendman

Establishment media never met a sovereign independent country they didn’t want transformed into a US client state.

Iran and Venezuela are in the eye of the storm, Cuba and Nicaragua next in line, US control over Russia and China the grand prize.

And don’t ignore Syria and other active US war theaters, conflicts all about gaining control over these countries, their resources and populations—or solidifying it in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and Lebanon/Palestine partnered with Israel.

Trump regime hawks seek anti-Iran coalition for war | Intrepid Report.com – Stephen Lendman

Consider the irony. Israel and the Saudis are the region’s most belligerent states. Iran is the Middle East’s most prominent proponent of peace and stability, a nation to be embraced and respected, not demonized the way the US mistreated it since its 1979 revolution.

US actions threaten everyone everywhere, Trump the latest in a long line of US warrior presidents. “…I have so many targets you wouldn’t believe,” he roared on Meet the Press, adding, “We have targets all over” ready to strike. Claiming he “knocked out the caliphate in Syria…100%,” ignored US support for ISIS and other terrorist groups it created.

Trump regime demands Iran fulfill its JCPOA obligations the US breached | Intrepid Report.com – Stephen Lendman

Washington demands other countries observe international laws, norms and standards, while it consistently breaches them.

At the Trump regime’s Monday State Department press briefing, spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus unleashed extremist venom against Iran.

Reciting a long ago discredited laundry list of bald-faced Big Lies about the country, she stressed that nonexistent Islamic Republic malign intent is “consistent with how [it] behaves,” turning truth on its head, concealing how the US and its imperial partners operate extrajudicially.

How neocon billionaire Paul Singer is driving the outsourcing of US tech jobs to Israel | Intrepid Report.com – Whitney Webb

June 13, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

With nearly 6 million Americans unemployed and regular bouts of layoffs in the U.S. tech industry, major American tech companies like Google, Microsoft and Intel Corporation are nonetheless moving key operations, billions in investments, and thousands of jobs to Israel—a trend that has largely escaped media attention or concern from even “America first” politicians. The fact that this massive transfer of investment and jobs has been so overlooked is particularly striking given that it is largely the work of a single leading neoconservative Republican donor who has given millions of dollars to President Donald Trump.

To make matters worse, many of these top tech companies shifting investment and jobs to Israel at record rates continue to collect sizable U.S. government subsidies for their operations while they move critical aspects of their business abroad, continue to layoff thousands of American workers, and struggle to house their growing company branches in Israel. This is particularly troubling in light of the importance of the tech sector to the overall U.S. economy, as it accounts for 7.1 percent of total GDP and 11.6 percent of total private-sector payroll.

The bankers’ ‘power revolution’: How the government got shackled by debt | Intrepid Report.com – Ellen Brown

June 3, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

This article is excerpted from my new book Banking on the People: Democratizing Money in the Digital Age, available in paperback.—EB

The U.S. federal debt has more than doubled since the 2008 financial crisis, shooting up from $9.4 trillion in mid-2008 to over $22 trillion in April 2019. The debt is never paid off. The government just keeps paying the interest on it, and interest rates are rising.

In 2018, the Fed announced plans to raise rates by 2020 to “normal” levels—a fed funds target of 3.375 percent—and to sell about $1.5 trillion in federal securities at the rate of $50 billion monthly, further growing the mountain of federal debt on the market. When the Fed holds government securities, it returns the interest to the government after deducting its costs; but the private buyers of these securities will be pocketing the interest, adding to the taxpayers’ bill.

Media propaganda machine pushing for US war on Iran | Intrepid Report.com – Stephen Lendman

Whenever Washington goes to war or plans one, naked aggression every time launched based on Big Lies and deception, US media genuflect supportively, acting as Pentagon press agents—backing what demands denunciation.

Are Iran and Venezuela next on the Trump regime’s target list? What’s madness and flagrantly illegal if launched against either country is possible.

Bipartisan lunatics run the Washington asylum. Never in world history has one nation threatened humanity’s survival like the US.

Endless wars of aggression rage, all sovereign independent nations the US doesn’t control on its target list for regime change—invented enemies because real ones don’t exist.

Trump’s encircling of Venezuela: A fool’s errand – Intrepid Report – Wayne Madsen

May 14, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

Relying on the advice of neo-conservative war hawk John Bolton, pompous Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Iran-Contra scandal felon Elliott Abrams, Donald Trump has embarked on the containment encircling of Venezuela. Trump is engaged in a fool’s errand of relying on the support of fascist leaders of Venezuela’s neighbors to pressure Venezuela’s president Nicolas Maduro to turn over power to a motley collection of Wall Street puppets who want to reverse the Bolivarian socialist policies of Maduro and his late predecessor, Hugo Chavez.

The Trump administration has made Colombia, where President Ivan Duque rules with the assistance of cartel drug lords and Central Intelligence Agency-linked paramilitary units. Abrams, Trump’s “special envoy” for Venezuela, failed miserably during the 1980s in trying to bring down the Sandinista government of Nicaragua. Instead of President Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua, Abrams and his cohorts almost brought down the administration of Ronald Reagan when it was discovered that the CIA was illegally using the proceeds of arms sales to Iran to fund the anti-Sandinista Nicaraguan Contras.

How lies become ‘facts’ in U.S. ‘news’ – Intrepid Report – Eric Zuesse

May 11, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

On Fox News Channel’s May 2 edition of “The Story with Martha MacCallum” it was alleged, by the program host (at 2:45 in this video), that one reason we must invade Venezuela (if we will) is that “People have lost 24 pounds” there. So (her point was), if we invade, that’s not evil, it’s no coup, but instead it’s humanitarian (presumably like it was in Iraq in 2003, when we invaded that country, which likewise had never invaded nor threatened to invade the United States—it was raw international aggression, by our country, against Iraq).

Individuals who fall for a liar once, will typically fall for that liar again and again, without limit, because they are (for whatever reason) prejudiced to trust him. But is this attempt at “regime change” in Venezuela yet another example of that, or might it instead really be the case (this time) that (as this Fox host implies) to invade Venezuela will help the people there (gain back that lost weight, etc.), not kill many of them and destroy their nation even worse than it already was?

So, I checked online, to find what the source was, if any, for this stunning allegation by the Fox News host. After all, such a steep a weight-loss for an entire nation would be shocking.
