strangelove2.jpg image It's nuclear WAR, Whether the People Like it or Not! Finian Cunningham via jess, Thursday, Oct 12 2017, 9:08pm
We would note recent news that Mad dog Mattis, "it's fun to shoot people," of the Pentagon arm of elite aggression, alerted his military to be ready (for war), which has been planned and is ready to proceed. If responsible western journalists took the minor trouble to connect all the obvious dots in the western shaped news that conclusion would be obvious to all. However, as we should all know, western media is also shaped and controlled by elite (CFR) interests, which habitually withhold critical information from the public which they view as alarming enough to interfere with THEIR plans. Nevertheless, a few real journalists endeavour to inform the global community of impending danger in order to inform and alert the public of nefarious elite plans in their manic effort to realise a one world authoritarian government.

Trump, a danger to humanity image Trump and Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) -- Adoration carl, Thursday, Oct 12 2017, 9:37am
It seems that those who should know better are happy to allow Trump to remain as President until he hangs himself, his approval rating has now plummeted in every US state, so minders tend to keep unreeling the ‘rope’ due to the personal risks and political repercussions of direct removal. However, what they should but do not know about the illness of NPD is that NPD sufferers require/demand prominence and adoration. If they fail to obtain this and people ignore or turn against them, they tend to suddenly and unpredictably go to extremes in vain attempts to regain former standing, delusional or otherwise.

America today is a soft, though hardening by the day, dictatorship. We have a political buffoon as president maneuvered into position by an elite ruling class of bankers and corporatists, you see, narcissistic, personality flawed buffoons are useful and easily tamed by elites. (story and 1 image)

Russian FM, Sergei Lavrov -- empty words thanks to disgraceful coward Putin image “Actions Speak LOUDER Than Words”, Russia cyd, Monday, Oct 9 2017, 11:23pm
The Russian FM, Sergei Lavrov, has done it again, how absolutely ineffective and meaningless, words do not cut it in Washington, you dumb Russians. Lavrov “warned” the USA not to escalate the Korean crisis, which infant imbecile Trump is aggravating to the extreme with his rants and tantrums. (story and 1 image)

text No Shortage of Heroes dulcie, Monday, Oct 9 2017, 12:04am
In a world populated by nose-ringed digital slaves today, which are intentionally alienated by the digital media, it seems that heroes have become a rare occurrence. However, that is not the case as any designated hero of the past, if still living, would inform you that they are just people that acted beyond the call under extreme duress, we often hear, “anyone would have done what I did under the circumstances,” or “there was no choice but to act.” In fact heroes are often created by circumstance. Indeed, we are all potential heroes, at least those of us that have maintained an independent identity not formulated and shaped by the digital media.

text How Billionaires Become Billionaires Prof. James Petras via suzie, Sunday, Oct 8 2017, 8:43pm
The answer, to put it succinctly, is by CHEATING and exploiting the system, however, the information offered below is useful and accurate. It amounts to engineered privilege and begs the question, why do average people which carry their nations on their breaking backs tolerate these gross injustices and obvious rorts?

psychwardusa.jpg image Psych Ward USA John Davis via jess, Sunday, Oct 8 2017, 12:00am
It started at the end of the fifteenth century. A cohort of brutal, sociopathic Europeans, fresh from the torture rooms of the Spanish Inquisition, and later from duty in the religious wars, arrived on American shores to kick butt. By 1610, they and their successors, by steel sword, axe, knife, and pike, biological pathogens and very occasionally by blunderbuss, had killed fifty million largely stone-age indigenous people. In the northern temperate zone of this vast continent, some of those mass murderers became the founding patients of the Psych Ward; others followed, less blood thirsty perhaps, but they too quickly adopted the deadly imperial ethos established by those first conquerors. This is the institution in which we Americans now find ourselves immured. (story and 1 image)

Sec.of State, Rex Tillerson -- who said what? image Calling a spade a spade and a Moron a Moron jake, Saturday, Oct 7 2017, 11:10pm
Rex Tillerson infuriated Trump by accurately portraying him as what he is, a MORON! Now, a personality flawed, ignorant narcissist cannot stand for this type of truthful revelation/appellation though the entire civilised world OUTSIDE the US is aware of the fact. (story and 1 image)

chinarussia_pact.jpg image Gold Convertibility of the Petro-Yuan Federico Pieraccini via suzie, Saturday, Oct 7 2017, 1:02am
While Washington is doing its criminal best to STEAL the precious oil resources of weaker Middle Eastern nations, China, and to a lesser extent untrustworthy Russia, have been exploiting America's manic singular focus on THEFT. China has been investing heavily in Pacific and Indian Ocean Island nations, Africa and Latin America, it has made HUGE gains in these regions; why not, the USA is known to be linear in thought, behaviour and action? And so the entire world outside the Middle East is Russia's/China's oyster. So far ahead of America are the achievements gained that China is now on the verge of dumping the greenback as the default trading currency of the world. It offers a very alluring incentive and that is Gold convertibility of the Petro-Yuan. (story and 1 image)

text DOD, HUD Defrauded Taxpayers Of $21 Trillion From 1998 To 2015 Whitney Webb via jess, Friday, Oct 6 2017, 10:17pm
Last year, a Reuters article brought renewed scrutiny to the budgeting practices of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), specifically the U.S. Army, after it was revealed that the department had “lost” $6.5 trillion in 2015 due to “wrongful budget adjustments.” Nearly half of that massive sum, $2.8 trillion, was lost in just one quarter. Reuters noted that the Army “lacked the receipts and invoices to support those numbers [the adjustments] or simply made them up” in order to “create an illusion that its books are balanced.”

Putin, as he is! image Putin Cops ANOTHER Overt Whack in the Mouth from Washington Moon Of Alabama via shirl, Friday, Oct 6 2017, 9:03pm
One wonders at times how much belittling Putin can take. I have never forgotten a prominent neocon blurting, at the time of the Iraq illegal intervention, when asked a question by the media about a possible Russian reaction, the answer was couched in LAUGHTER, "what can Russia do, ha, ha, ha?" How historically accurate. Putin has caved like the COWARD he is on every occasion he faced Washington criminal aggression, his protest mouse-squeaks over Libya have gone down in history. But what did Putin "DO?" Nothing to support Libya against the OVERT US/NATO CRIMINAL attack on that nation and the assassination of its leader, which criminal travesties Putin could have easily prevented by simply supporting that Russian ALLIED nation. And so his cowardice is legendary in Washington and deservedly so. (story and 1 image)

text Unmasked Criminal USA Attempts Grab for Syrian Oil Mike Whitney via jess, Wednesday, Oct 4 2017, 6:11am
Clearly, the mask is down and it's now obvious to all that the USA directly and via its many alternating bought proxy fighters is making a grab for Syria's sovereign resource assets, primarily OIL. Of course this overt grab depends on Putin's reaction. Now consider how US ally, ISIS, assassinated one of Russia's generals in a clear diversionary tactic. Washington hopes that Putin would be true to his known COWARDLY form and defer, as he has always done facing Washington/NATO aggression in the past. Perhaps he may acquiesce again, only he knows, but his track record of abandoning allies is appalling, he is known to dump allies at the most critical time. We have a ruined Yugoslavia and Libya, and many other weaker States to offer as proof. Previous Soviet leaders would have supported such allies to the hilt if for no other reason than to check America's imperial, expansionist aggression.

trumpun.jpg image The First Casualty of Terrorism is Innocence vance, Tuesday, Oct 3 2017, 11:31am
Truth may be the first casualty of war, but INNOCENCE remains the first casualty of terrorism; by definition and consequence, terrorism is the killing of innocent civilians for political purposes regardless of whether the act is committed by a clever or dumbed down sociopath -- America can expect more, much more for the following reasons.

american_flag.jpg image The End of the Star-Spangled Empire Chris Hedges via sal, Tuesday, Oct 3 2017, 2:37am
The following rather gloomy -- for Americans -- piece is accurate and for this reason it is reposted here; however, it should be noted that the world continues usually for the better after the demise of oppressive, rapacious, mass murdering, violent empires which share common core structures/behaviours and the associated inherent weaknesses. Indeed, ALL 'great' empires first fail within usually long before external forces put an end to their terminal twitching and so it is with the USA, which nation has been unraveling for some time. Today's, and recent former national leaders and the destructive, self-interested forces that install and support them are always to blame for undermining the very principles which created strength in the first instance; all things have the seeds of destruction inbuilt genetically and socially. So is it not time to REFORM the poisonous status quo and eliminate the nation-destroying forces responsible for the rapid decline? (story and 1 image)
