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.

Ecclesiastes immediately comes to mind, all human endeavour is folly resulting in ruin and death. However, as accurate as that message is, we continue to arrogantly delude ourselves; of course we are 'better,' more advanced than peoples of the past, though the human disposition and condition has never changed -- what utter foolishness, arrogance and vanities we willingly believe about ourselves.

text So What’s New with the Human Race? Nothing! jane, Saturday, Mar 3 2018, 12:37am
Interesting expression, “human race,” as indeed humanity is racing toward oblivion as I write.

The Russian leader V. Putin today announced a new supersonic (nuclear) ICBM, which claim if true, dramatically alters existing military power structures in the world; however, watching the videos of Putin’s new weapon immediately casts doubts as to the veracity of his claims. The videos are of very poor quality considering the high definition of today’s technologies and to add more doubt to his claims, the former Soviet Union, where Putin cut his KGB teeth, was known to exaggerate claims of Soviet power, which the USA and other nations fell for at the time.

Supreme Leader Xi Jinping image Chinese Leader Xi Jinping Sets Himself Up for Possible Assassination kwang, Friday, Mar 2 2018, 1:53am
The new emperor of China, Xi Jinping, has established himself as an absolute ruler/autocrat, notwithstanding that after the Mao Zedong fiasco of the cultural revolution and all the associated destruction, destabilisation, regression and horror, later leaders Deng Xiaoping implemented a safeguard in the Chinese communist party, and that WAS that no president could rule for more than ten years, after which the party would elect another leader.

Defenders of the Internet have promised one "hell of a fight"—and now that day is here.

text The Downward Spiral Paul Edwards via darcy, Thursday, Mar 1 2018, 12:07am
When empires begin to die, their public acts--in sharp contrast to the ponderous, stately sobriety of their behavior while ascendant--tend to be marked by odd and pathetic eruptions of idiocy, bathos and mania.

china_us_flags.jpg image Why China Is Running Circles Around America Ellen Brown via gail, Wednesday, Feb 28 2018, 11:52pm
“One Belt, One Road,” China’s $1 trillion infrastructure initiative, is a massive undertaking involving highways, pipelines, transmission lines, ports, power stations, fiber optics and railroads connecting China to Central Asia, Europe and Africa. According to Dan Slane, a former adviser in President Trump’s transition team, “It is the largest infrastructure project initiated by one nation in the history of the world and is designed to enable China to become the dominant economic power in the world.” In a Jan. 29 article titled “Trump’s Plan a Recipe for Failure, Former Infrastructure Advisor Says,” he added, “If we don’t get our act together very soon, we should all be brushing up on our Mandarin.” (story and 1 image)

text Why One War When We Can Have Two? Eric Margolis via cyd, Wednesday, Feb 28 2018, 11:24pm
`We will continue to prosecute the campaign against terrorists, but great-power competition – not terrorism – is now the primary focus of US national security.’ Henceforth Russia and China will be America’s main enemies, with Iran and North Korea thrown in for good measure.

text Korean Peace Terrifies War Mongering Washington Tony Cartalucci via gus, Wednesday, Feb 28 2018, 11:17pm
North Korea has been depicted by the Western media as a dangerous rogue state, plotting the nuclear holocaust of America and holding global peace and stability hostage with its irrational aggression. It is the supposed threat North Korea poses to the world that the United States uses to justify its enduring decades-long military presence on the Korean Peninsula.

text The Corporate Tax Cuts Produce More Jobs, MYTH darcy, Wednesday, Feb 28 2018, 12:01am
One of Australia’s big four banks, NAB, released its latest profit report -- the big banks own the game so they always win. The new published profit increase was immediately followed by the shedding of four to six thousand jobs, so much for increased monies producing jobs, and this behaviour applies to all large corporations, as is evident with a modicum of research.

text Trump Sets Deadly Precedent by Hiding Rationale for Bombing Syria Marjorie Cohn via jaxie, Sunday, Feb 25 2018, 10:00pm
Pressure is mounting as the Trump administration continues to refuse to reveal its legal justification for bombing Syria in April 2017, despite increased scrutiny from Democratic senators and a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

text Living in his own private 'New England,' Barnaby Joyce Finally Resigns baz, Friday, Feb 23 2018, 3:51am
Joyce's forced decision was very late, too late to minimise damage to the Nationals and the Liberals. Had Joyce done the obvious and honourable thing and resigned early the conservatives would have fared much better indeed, but Joyce, forever the selfish child, as his absurd philandering behaviour indicates, unnecessarily damaged the brand of the conservatives, which damage would stick in the back of voters' minds for a considerable period.

text Fight to Save Net Neutrality Jake Johnson via jane, Friday, Feb 23 2018, 3:26am
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chair Ajit Pai's net neutrality repeal plan was finally published in the Federal Register on Thursday, but that doesn't mean net neutrality is officially dead—in fact, as open internet defenders quickly observed in response to the news, the fight to save the web from the Republican-controlled FCC is just beginning.

text American Electoral Meddling for Empire: The CIA Comes Clean Binoy Kampmark via shirl, Thursday, Feb 22 2018, 10:34pm
Electoral meddling has become the gruel of US politics for months, and more servings are being promised in the wake of the indictments against 16 Russians and Russian entities dished out Robert Mueller last week. Such actions can, when taken in isolation, seem sensible. Righteous indignation can be channeled appropriately, and given the suitable icing of exceptionalism.

text The Coming Wars to End All Wars Edward Curtin via sal, Thursday, Feb 22 2018, 10:26pm
The Trump and Netanyahu governments have a problem: How to start a greatly expanded Middle-Eastern war without having a justifiable reason for one. No doubt they are working hard to solve this urgent problem. If they can’t find a “justification” (which they can’t), they will have to create one (which they will). Or perhaps they will find what they have already created. Whatever the solution, we should feel confident that they are not sitting on their hands. History teaches those who care to learn that when aggressors place a gun on the wall in the first act of their play, it must go off in the final act.
