text Mass Media and Intel Agency Collusion Over Decades Bill Blunden via jess, Thursday, Jan 11 2018, 1:50am
Steven Spielberg's new movie The Post presents the story behind Katharine Graham's decision to publish the Pentagon Papers in The Washington Post. As the closing credits roll, one is left with the impression of a publisher who adopts an adversarial stance towards powerful government officials. Despite the director's $50 million budget (or, perhaps, because of it), there are crucial details that are swept under the rug -- details that might lead viewers towards a more accurate understanding of the relationship between the mainstream corporate press and the government.

text The Puppet and Slave Show james, Wednesday, Jan 10 2018, 10:09pm
It is no secret that all recent US presidents serve unrepresentative corporate and financial elite interests, which always prefer to remain behind the scenes. These interests OWN both major parties in the US and other ‘democratic’ nations around the globe. These so-called democratic nations all have one thing in common, leaders that lie through their teeth to get elected and then serve elite interests, which interests are largely against the exploited public interest. This is no secret.

text Interesting Turn of Events in 'Russiagate' Conspiracy Paul Craig Roberts via justin, Wednesday, Jan 10 2018, 6:20am
Russiagate originated in a conspiracy between the military/security complex, the Clinton-controlled Democratic National Committee, and the liberal/progressive/left. The goal of the military/security complex is to protect its out-sized budget and power by preventing President Trump from normalizing relations with Russia. Hillary and the DNC want to explain away their election loss by blaming a Trump/Putin conspiracy to steal the election. The liberal/progressive/left want Trump driven from office.

donaldtrumpyoutube.jpg image Trump, the 'Very Stable Genius,' Is Falling Apart as Mueller Seeks Interview Jefferson Morley via jake, Wednesday, Jan 10 2018, 5:09am
The tide of discussion of President Trump’s mental competence is rising along with the alarm of the president’s lawyers. As special prosecutor Robert Mueller seeks an interview with President Trump, the president's legal representatives are grappling with the challenge of a talkative client who alternates between self-serving lies and self-destructive truths while sowing doubts among his own closest aides about his mental stability.

text Iran Would Easily Survive yet Another Feeble Colour Revolution Attempt by the USA justin, Tuesday, Jan 9 2018, 9:10pm
Indeed, the USA has tried this form of destabilisation numerous times in the past, and each has met with FAILURE. One wonders at times why America persists with these futile attempts, but we know, the American deep state is ossified and is unable to learn NEW tricks, so like the insane, defined by Einstein, it continues to pursue failed methods hoping for another outcome.

With major NSA surveillance authorities set to expire later this month, House Republicans are rushing to pass a bill that would not only reauthorize existing powers, but also codify into law some practices that critics have called unconstitutional. (story and 1 image)

text The Trump White House From a Different Perspective jude, Sunday, Jan 7 2018, 7:48pm
Depending on how you view any situation you arrive at certain conclusions creating a reality for yourself -- there is no escaping this post-modernist view, which is proven daily. Safety of course is enabled by numbers, my views align with such and such ‘powerful’ entities, so I’m safe.

radioactive.jpg image Fukushima Nuclear Meltdown continues Unabated Helen Caldicott via jane, Saturday, Jan 6 2018, 9:59pm
It has become apparent that the nuclear fiasco at Fukushima, largely the result of corporate deceit fraud and failures to take the usual precautions, is beyond repair and stabilisation. The reactors CONTINUE to pour massive amounts of poisonous radiation into Northern hemisphere oceans and no-one is willing to take responsibility. Well, legal challenges from affected nations would soon remedy that. Clearly two corporations and governments are responsible and that allows for massive reparations and future compensation for the increasing radiation discharge into the sea, with no REAL efforts to stem it. It is viewed as hopeless though responsible parties continue to sweat over the REAL possibilities of legal challenges, not only from Japanese immediately affected but from the many nations which would soon be seriously affected by radioactive seas/seafood on their shores. There are reasons why the elite owned mass media has blocked stories on the ongoing problems at Fukushima. (story and 1 image)

"stable genius" and "very smart," MORON image Pakistan Just Shoved Boot Down America’s Throat -- thanks, “stable genius” Donald james, Saturday, Jan 6 2018, 8:49pm
Indeed, Trump the shallowest thinker in the history of politics, unintentionally invited Pakistan to teach America a lesson it would not soon forget. Pakistan has just ordered over 1.3 million Afghan refugees to leave the country and return home in 30 days. Of course the effect is entirely predictable, thanks to “stable genius”, in his own words, Trump, who thoughtlessly tweeted the following: (story and 1 image)

trump44.jpg image Everyone in Trumpworld Knows He’s an Idiot Michelle Goldberg via gail, Friday, Jan 5 2018, 6:36pm
The following recent article from the New York Times proves beyond doubt that the USA is a dysfunctional State. Indeed the title highlights what the ENTIRE WORLD already knows, YET, the powers that be in the USA are unable to oust a completely destructive, to himself and the nation, buffoon, cognitively impaired president -- and that is the point. Provisions exist for the removal of an idiot president BUT Congress and the administration are unwilling to make the necessary moves. Why? Simply due to the fact that the NATION itself is reflected in the president, it is DYSFUNCTIONAL and unraveling as I write. Cognitively impaired Trump singlehandedly has done more to harm the USA than any other American in the history of the nation, and when you consider bumbling Bush and the evil Cheney administration that's a BIG call.

The following article (an informative read) though detailed, points to a symptomatic appraisal of something much larger in scope, the fall of a self-styled imperial power; and fall it must, not least due to the reasons outlined in the article, a thoroughly flawed, inept and incompetent ELECTED leader.

text The Net’s Good Ol' Boys: Hacking the Arpanet Geoff Dutton via claire, Thursday, Jan 4 2018, 5:17am
It’s hard to imagine now, but there was a time before the Internet, a time when computers took up more space than the acolytes who tended to their needs. In the 70s I was one such boffin, a postgrad hacking away in a university R&D lab. Computers then were still quite dear, and so we made do with terminals that sucked electrons from the teat of a minicomputer several blocks away through fiber cable.

text Social Media Madness: the Russiagate Fantasy Norman Solomon via shirl, Thursday, Jan 4 2018, 1:48am
For several months we’ve been hearing a crescendo of outcries that Russia used social media to sway the 2016 presidential election. The claim has now been debunked by an unlikely source — one of the most Russiagate-frenzied big media outlets in the United States, the Washington Post.

text We Can BUT We Won’t! daniel, Thursday, Jan 4 2018, 12:57am
It amuses me greatly to read various articles on how we could make 2018 a good year, not the usual progression into a nihilistic future driven by a tiny minority of ultra-wealthy pathological and avaricious types in society that profit from perpetual war, destruction and chaos. Well, of course we can, or could, to be grammatically correct, but that also applies to every new year since the 21st century began and just take a good look at those disastrous 17 years. So, always the realist, fat chance that appalling trend would change in 2018, though it could, it could change anytime BUT it won’t. Why?

text 2018 a Grim Year from Any Perspective Abdel Bari Atwan via shirl, Tuesday, Jan 2 2018, 9:56pm
With the US now adopting insularity and insanity as its main credos, the international economic and political balance is sure to shift dramatically in 2018; China is rightfully subverting the petro-dollar, as like many other nations affected, the greenback has been used to blackmail and impose sanctions on other sovereign, non-compliant (to Washington's dictates) nations. Moreover, the USA is an undisguised military nation hell bent on perpetual war as that is the only foreign policy it knows, which is the focus of the following article. The future promises anything but peace, harmony and stability for the entire world.
