text How Easily Led? justin, Thursday, May 11 2017, 11:21pm
Recently, the alternative and mass media were focusing on US preparations for a pre-emptive nuclear strike on superpowers Russia and China; this proved to be alarming for the deep state, which prefers to work in the dark. So what are all media outlets focusing on today? Trump of course, and his sacking of FBI director James Comey -- how bloody convenient! Focus has now shifted from a critical issue to a nuisance ‘news’-grabbing story with no real substance or world importance.

Former FBI Director, James Comey image Trump fires the Man most Responsible for his Ascension to the Presidency jaxie, Wednesday, May 10 2017, 11:16pm
FBI director James Comey has been sacked by Trump, and this act regardless of the invaluable assistance that Comey provided in undermining Hillary Clinton by re-opening the investigation into her crass and transparent DISHONESTY, a few weeks before the final vote. (story and 1 image)

neoconsstrauss.jpg image The History of the Neocon Takeover of the USA Paul Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Gould via james, Wednesday, May 10 2017, 10:27pm
Foreword by the Saker: the four articles below, combined into one, are an exception to the normal rule which is that this blog [Saker's] does not republish articles already published in the past. In this case, at the request of Paul Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Gould, I decided to make an exception due to the importance and interest of the topic: the origins of the Neocon movement. I am particularly grateful to Paul and Elizabeth who have agreed to my request to remove the original copyright restrictions on this material for publication on the Saker blog. The analysis they wrote offers a very valuable insight into the roots and history of the Neocon phenomenon. (story and 1 image)

text Trump was Installed as President for a Purpose jess, Tuesday, May 9 2017, 8:38pm
Notwithstanding that Trump has the political acumen of a gnat and is clearly a puppet of the deep state, which speaks volumes about his spinelessness, he nevertheless serves a purpose, can you guess? Buffoon Trump saturates the western media, which distracts from the real issues and nefarious plans of the deep state, which reduce to nuclear WAR.

Empty head, 'President' Trump image Donald Trump's Breathtaking Ignorance David Cay Johnston via jill, Tuesday, May 9 2017, 9:30am
Let’s connect the dots between Donald Trump’s “tax plan”, his invitation to the murderous leader in Manila and saying he would be “honored” to meet with the dictator of North Korea. And let’s throw in his claim that Trumpcare will be better than Obamacare and that his skeletal tax plan would make him pay more. (story and 1 image)

John 'damaged goods' McCain image John McCain Avowed Warmonger drew, Monday, May 8 2017, 11:49pm
It is apparent that certain members of the US Congress have little concern for innocent human lives. This extends dramatically to disturbed pathological types like John McCain, who once sang a distorted Beach Boys song along the lines of, “Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran," publically, and thought himself proud for that clearly insane, infantile act. I need not stress the point that McCain is a warmonger in the first degree. He imagines like all extremists that violence solves problems when history has taught the world it only increases devastating problems. (story and 1 image)

text Hope, the Opiate of the Masses Today suzie, Sunday, May 7 2017, 8:58pm
There is no doubt the world is going to hell in a hand basket, all one need do is LOOK at the prevailing reality not listen to the ‘news.’ When we do that we see outrageous provocations and orchestrated lies targeted at America’s perceived (nuclear) enemies, which remain in opposition to any American or other domination. Those targeted nations like the rest of us, wish to preserve their sovereign independent status under international law, live and let live, is how they see things, furthermore, they believe in co-operation not domination.

text For Fuck’s Sake are WE Pathetic or What? jason, Saturday, May 6 2017, 11:09pm
You needn’t be clairvoyant to realise the Truth of the US planning a pre-emptive nuclear strike on Russia and China, it’s in our comatose faces on a DAILY basis. The thoroughly insane neocons, “what's the point of having nuclear weapons if you don’t use them,” that control Washington and ALL modern presidents, are preparing NOW, it’s self-evident if you have the eyes to SEE. Neocon doctrine (PNAC) openly published for the world to see, espouses “Pax-Americana,” which means lordship over all nations. It states openly that any nation that “could” challenge US hegemony must be thwarted, and today only two nations are able to resist successfully this perverse plan, Russia and China!

text United States Says ‘Yes’ to Nuclear Weapons Tests, ‘No’ to a Treaty Ban John Laforge via gail, Saturday, May 6 2017, 2:01am
In the words of arch-neocon, Richard Perle, "what's the point of having nuclear weapons if you don't use them?"

Now understand that neocons remain in control of foreign policy in Washington and you would realise that the USA is preparing for a pre-emptive nuclear strike on Russia and China and both those powers know it. Informed readers would also note the preparations for such an attack. Russia's European land borders have offensive anti-missile systems installed and the same is now occurring in close proximity to China. These American anti-missile systems have led neocon nut-cases like Perle and others today, to believe that a nuclear pre-emptive strike would be successful against nuclear powers Russia and China, well yes they would, for cockroaches! Do a little research and the mass media hidden obvious would become obvious to all!

text Slavery 2017 Peter Koenig via dulcie, Saturday, May 6 2017, 1:16am
In the 18th and 19th centuries, African slaves that did not ‘behave’, were cruelly beaten sometimes to death, as a deterrent to others. Slaves were deprived of food for their families, their women were raped and then they were usually traded to harsher white masters for a pittance. Their lives were worth only what their labor could produce. They were viewed and treated as subjects, devoid of human rights.

text Fiction and Fact -- the ‘news’ conundrum jane, Friday, May 5 2017, 12:14am
To highlight what textual and semiotic theorists argue I would ask that you consider the fact that realities cannot be successfully translated from three dimensions to lesser dimensions, for instance, reality is three dimensional, text, video and images are trapped in two dimensions. So essentially all reporting of a three dimensional event fails the truth test, as it cannot be re-presented successfully. However, it would be impractical not to report information as best we can, the world, especially culture, is shaped and floats on a ‘sea’ of information, false or otherwise.

Just days after sporting First Amendment pins at the White House Correspondents Dinner – to celebrate freedom of the press – the mainstream U.S. media is back to celebrating a very different idea: how to use algorithms to purge the Internet of what is deemed “fake news,” i.e. what the mainstream judges to be “misinformation.” (story and 1 image)

These are the chorus lyrics from Bob Dylan’s song ‘Idiot Wind,’ which a friend played for his dinner guests and then asked of his guests, ‘is it socially relevant today? Allow me to assist a little with the creative artistic process before you strain your brain attempting an answer. (story and 1 image)
