Google, your data suppression methods are obvious, easily recorded, abysmally inept and generally pathetic.

The simple fact that you actively engage in suppressing this and other alternative news sites means we have won and TRUTH will prevail in the end.

Putin, in character image US Military Presence in Syria Has No Legal Grounds Whatsoever Peter Korzun via cyd, Sunday, Nov 19 2017, 10:14am
America, the worlds leading civilian killing and law flouting nation (FACT) is in trouble, as the usual excuses and pretexts it uses for its many illegal military interventions are today as transparent as wet toilet paper. The Syrian government has made it clear that America's presence and its proxy fighters, including ISIL and Al-Qaeda, are invasive, aggressive forces and would be treated as belligerent enemy forces as outlined by the UN and international law. This puts corrupt Putin on the spot as he could have at any time demanded that the US withdraw from Syria immediately, yet he has chosen to play footsie with the USA. (story and 1 image)

That's not a halo, it's nuclear madness/death image No One Man Should Be Able to Trigger Nuclear War Eric Margolis via jan, Sunday, Nov 19 2017, 3:17am
Nuclear war is absolutely unthinkable. Totally crazy. Yet serious discussion is underway in military and neocon war circles about a nuclear war against North Korea and, even crazier, against Iran and Russia. Welcome home, Dr Strangelove. [And we all should be aware how that movie ended.] (story and 1 image)

text US Military and CIA Leaders May Be Investigated for War Crimes Marjorie Cohn via james, Friday, Nov 17 2017, 1:50am
Fat chance Ms Cohn, as it is established that the ICC only convicts those that are considered enemies of the USA; you would note that trials involving the KLA, a notorious Muslim criminal organisation, found none guilty of any crimes and that notwithstanding a published account by former chief prosecutor Carla Del Ponte, that the KLA were harvesting organs from captured Serbian civilians. It should also be noted that Croatian and Bosnian extremists were also found not guilty, give me a break! Do you find it odd that only Serbs were convicted and jailed after that American instigated conflict and that former Yugoslav president Milosevic was exonerated quietly after his death in jail?

For years now, I have been warning about the relationship of interdependency between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia and how this relationship, if ended, would mean disaster for the petrodollar system and by extension the dollar's world reserve status. (story and 2 images)

text UPDATE on Syrian Crisis and America's grossly Illegal Interference MOA via cyd, Thursday, Nov 16 2017, 8:24pm
There have been few significant movements during the last weeks. The war on Syria slowly grinds towards its end. The political tussle continues as ever. U.S. Secretary of Defense Mattis made a curious announcement of plans he can not fulfill.

Paul Barry image Oz ABC 'Media Watch' Should Watch Itself! Binoy Kampmark via justin, Wednesday, Nov 15 2017, 9:39pm
The program usually pokes fun, riddles and irks a fourth estate that has long given up the chase for verity. Media Watch, after years of weather beaten but reliable service, remains Australia’s only real source of genuine critical comment about journalistic practice and its poorer practices. Over the years, it has exposed fictions, unearthed myths and lampooned incompetence. (story and 1 image)

Trust in corporate news has plummeted over the past few years, however, trust in independent news is strong and growing -- hardly surprising in view of the blatant lies, misinformation and propaganda that issues like sewage from the corporate mass media.

text Australia -- Homosexual Marriage and a Distracted, Nose-ringed CONSERVATIVE Nation les, Tuesday, Nov 14 2017, 9:16pm
Australians, like their moronic, media-enslaved American cousins, have fallen for ultra-conservative values dressed in ‘radical’ clothes. Homosexual issues, which group comprise a tiny percentage of any population, have been used by conservative authoritarian forces to distract from the critical and major SOCIAL, ENVIRONMENTAL and FINANCIAL inequities and concerns that confront the overwhelming world MAJORITY, particularly Australians.

Poet and Mystic, Jalaludin Rumi  image Iran's Leading Cleric Declares Psychedelics Halal, Acceptable Phillip Smith via dulcie, Tuesday, Nov 14 2017, 12:44am
In a move barely noticed in the West, more than three years ago, Iran's Grand Ayatollah Rohani issued a formal legal ruling—a fatwa—declaring that the use of entheogens and psychedelics was permissible (ḥalāl) for Shi'a Muslims for purposes of treatment and spiritual growth. (story and 1 image)

opium.jpg image Into the Afghan Abyss (Again) Alfred W. McCoy via jess, Monday, Nov 13 2017, 10:09pm
After nine months of confusion, chaos, and cascading tweets, Donald Trump’s White House has finally made one thing crystal clear: the U.S. is staying in Afghanistan to fight and—so they insist—win. “The killers need to know they have nowhere to hide, that no place is beyond the reach of American might,” said the president in August, trumpeting his virtual declaration of war on the Taliban. Overturning Barack Obama’s planned (and stalled) drawdown in Afghanistan, Secretary of Defense James Mattis announced that the Pentagon would send 4,000 more soldiers to fight there, bringing American troop strength to nearly 15,000.

Lorry driver Abu Fawzi thought it was going to be just another job. He drives an 18-wheeler across some of the most dangerous territory in northern Syria. Bombed-out bridges, deep desert sand, even government forces and so-called Islamic State fighters don’t stand in the way of a delivery. (story and 1 image)

The dimwit, megalo prince Salman soon to be eliminated, one way or the other image The House of Saud a Tinder Box Ready to Implode tafiq, Monday, Nov 13 2017, 12:23pm
Numerous commentaries by experts on the recent arrests of multi-billionaire Saudi royals by the heir apparent dimwit pretender to the throne, prince Salman, yes the same imbecile that sparked the war in Yemen which he is losing, which has demonstrated to the world his complete ineptitudes and incompetence as a tactician and leader. However, nothing compares to the recent convulsions in the house of Saud precipitated by the same idiot prince, the Trump of the Middle East, in that a total idiot is on the loose causing all manner of grief which could easily see the house of Saud implode, as there are far too many billionaire princes and other relatives that fear for their fortunes and lives to make this absurd purge tenable.

text On The Brink Of War Abdel Bari Atwan via gail, Monday, Nov 13 2017, 2:58am
We should not let minor details such as Hariri’s resignation or the detention of [Saudi] princes and former ministers divert our attention from the real developments that are taking place in secret. Nor should we let these minor details distract us from the more dangerous phase that will follow Prince Mohammad bin Salman ‘purge’ on the domestic Saudi front. For such ‘purges’ are the preliminary move to scenarios for a war that may be the most dangerous in the region’s history. And we are not exaggerating here.

Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our [any] nation." - Edward Bernays
