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.

Indeed it is, with one huge condition/proviso, that is, does it suit America and its EU/NATO puppets?

As a youth it was easy to realise that the system we live in today is sick, more evident today than ever, as psychopaths and extremely psychologically sick individuals now lead nations -- Donald Trump, for instance.

text Kirkuk redux was a bloodless offensive. Here’s why Pepe Escobar via james, Wednesday, Oct 18 2017, 11:22pm
The Battle of Kirkuk lasted less than 24 hours. In a lightning – and mostly bloodless – offensive, the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) retook control of the North Oil Co. and North Gas Co. headquarters, the K1 military base, the Bai Hassan oil field, and two domes of the Kirkuk oil field on Monday.

text Trump Caught Out Lying AGAIN jane, Wednesday, Oct 18 2017, 11:15pm
Trump’s latest episode of transparent lying relates to his accusation that Obama did not contact relatives of soldiers killed in action; furthermore, Trump recently displayed the usual characteristics of a sociopath by accusing/blaming everyone else of lying when it is plain that HE is the pathological, infantile liar. I say infantile as he is clearly a child attempting to lie his way, unsuccessfully, out of trouble, especially when he is caught dead to rights.

text ‘The Small always Overcomes the Large’ nano, Tuesday, Oct 17 2017, 11:19pm
The title is actually a military adage, which is as old as warfare. Consider the biblical allegory of David and Goliath, how a lumbering highly equipped with ‘superior’ armaments, giant of a man was defeated by the agility, speed and cunning of a small boy with an effective (in the right hands/application) ‘primitive’ weapon, and it was used to great effect, which is the essential transmission/message of the story. In fact, as history records numerous times, the bigger they are the more likely the chances of being defeated by a much smaller, agile force -- and I use ‘agile’ to cover tactics and strategy as well as lightning response and astounding ‘physical’ maneuverability.

text Lemmings and Men jan, Monday, Oct 16 2017, 2:19am
When lemmings, due to population and other living pressures race over mythical clifftops, as is often depicted, do they have a leader they follow? No, it is a GROUP effort, they all participate in the madness of self-destruction. And so it is with America today, from revolution to a democratic Republic to an authoritarian, totalitarian state, with the usual madman as the leader.

text The Floundering President claire, Sunday, Oct 15 2017, 10:32pm
The Guardian recently reported that Trump has isolated himself from his political base in Washington, principally due to his infantile, impetuous and petulant nature, which among other severe personality flaws clearly defines him as unfit and incapable of performing the duties of President of the United States. That obvious fact aside, his minders, or assassins, as politics is a cut-throat business, which no novice should enter without years of experience or strong expert political support, Trump remains commander-in-chief and is entirely capable of triggering a war, in fact he is the Pentagon’s puppet mascot. We should not downplay Trump’s insane, mindless threats directed at North Korea, delivered at the United Nations, which location adds veracity to the insane threats. So beware.

text The Deep State's Bogus 'Iranian Threat' David Stockman via jess, Saturday, Oct 14 2017, 11:54pm
Yesterday we identified a permanent fiscal crisis as one of the quadruple witching forces arising in October 2017 which will shatter the global financial bubble. Today the Donald is on the cusp of making the crisis dramatically worse by decertifying the Iranian nuke deal, thereby reinforcing another false narrative that enables the $1 trillion Warfare State to continue bleeding the nation's fiscal solvency.

text The State of Slavery james, Saturday, Oct 14 2017, 11:23pm
Most Americans today imagine that slavery ended with the civil war, a war in reality fought for economic not moral reasons. Nevertheless, the abolition of slavery was presented to the world as the underlying reason for this economic war. If you doubt this conclusion simply assess the status of the 'yez bozz’ black American AFTER THE CIVIL WAR, as they were/are portrayed in modern media, particularly Hollywood in the early decades of the 20th century. Yet it wasn’t until the late 60‘s, that MLK, Macolm X and other black liberationists actually made some progress toward black social equality and real freedoms,100 years after the civil war; there are many examples of blacks in the 60‘s fighting for their rights promised a hundred years back -- lol -- and note how white elites murdered most of these activists and suppressed news of others using white public water bubblers and sitting in white areas of segregated buses and other segregated social spaces.

text America the Unfortunate james, Friday, Oct 13 2017, 11:57pm
Average Americans are suffering from lunatic leadership which is noted by its insane rhetoric and provocations as begging for war. The latest unforgivable debacle is Trump’s trashing of the Iran nuclear accord, which would allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons in response to the insanity of the USA, the accord as it stood prevented Iran from developing nuclear weapons but Trump trashed it against all expert opinion and sane reason.

text Russia is Hurting Big Time dusan, Friday, Oct 13 2017, 3:12am
The news never covers what years of imposed sanctions, based primarily on fabricated charges and distortions, have done to the Russian economy, which was always vulnerable to this type of attack. The Russian economy is not broad, as it’s largely based on energy supplies to Europe and former satellites and so if sanctions on its main source of income hit hard, then the same collapse that affected the Soviet Union would affect Russia today.

text Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. John W. Whitehead via darcy, Friday, Oct 13 2017, 1:35am
However, it takes a culture of entitlement and a nation of compliant, willfully ignorant, politically divided citizens to provide the foundations of tyranny.
