text John Pilger Interview: Mainstream Media and Imperial Power Dennis J Bernstein and Randy Credico via gail, Thursday, Jan 25 2018, 10:03pm
Naturally, John Pilger is here expressing his opinion, alone.

As a group of highly specialised young (millennials) with various professional skills ranging from computer science (expert coders and reverse engineers) to mass media/communications, marketing, PR, journalism, advertising, to name only a few areas of expertise -- we also have a group of expert hackers that do not have degrees or orthodox qualifications -- now paid extremely well by Big Tech in California for their services, which I would emphasise does not preclude them from their favourite pursuit -- HACKING, which is more lucrative than their front jobs. Indeed, as Pilger states when he refers to young journalists, we are cynical and for very good reason, as we have individually removed the superimposed psychological and digital chains of slavery which we were insidiously exposed to since we could think.

tzar_bomba.jpg image Nuclear War: A Thousand Buttons Conn Hallinan via darcy, Wednesday, Jan 24 2018, 11:45pm
When President Donald Trump bragged that his nuclear “button” was bigger and more efficient than North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un’s “button,” he was perpetuating the myth that the leaders of nuclear-armed nations control their weapons. But you do not have to be Trump, Kim, Vladimir Putin, Theresa May, Xi Jinping, Narendra Modi, Mamnoon Hussain, or Benjamin Netanyahu to push that “button.” There are thousands of buttons and thousands of people who can initiate a nuclear war.

flagssoldier.jpg image An American Officer’s Path to Dissent Maj. Danny Sjursen via jack, Wednesday, Jan 24 2018, 9:45pm
For a while there, I was a real star. High up in my class at West Point, tough combat deployments in two wars, a slew of glowing evaluations, even a teaching assignment back at the military academy. I inhabited a universe most only dream of: praised, patted and highly respected by everyone in my life system and viewed as a brave American soldier. It’s a safe, sensible spot. For most, that’s enough. Too bad it was all bunk. Absurdity incarnate. (story and 1 image)

text How Political Slogans Work -- “Make America Great Again” lex, Wednesday, Jan 24 2018, 8:42am
Slogans are usually open-ended and inherently meaningless, however, they effectively play on the subjective imagination of those receptive to them. For instance, remember “light at the end of the tunnel,” used extensively to prolong the illegal, losing, Vietnam war, which resulted in an increasing death toll on both sides.

PDF Document The Court Document Behind the 'Memo' Causing all the Hysteria in Washington Joe Hoft via james, Tuesday, Jan 23 2018, 9:24pm
The 'memo' causing so much media hysteria and turmoil in Washington is a distillation of the material contents of a recently declassified court document, which states plainly that American regulatory and Intel agencies were functioning outside (breaking) the LAW. Of course this is no surprise to any aware citizen. Who could forget the now infamous statement of president Nixon when he appeared on national television in defense of his clearly criminal Watergate actions and declared, "when the president does it [commits a crime] it's not Illegal!" Well bunk to that absurd claim. (story and 1 attached file)

text Turkey Launches Airstrikes Against U.S.-Backed Kurdish Forces Julia Conley via jaxie, Monday, Jan 22 2018, 4:42am
Further to the future breakup of NATO and possibly the EU one NATO member has taken military action against another. The reason? Nations are like people and each has their own interests to pursue and protect, western Europe has little in common with eastern Europe. Turkey's interests do not conform with the US's current interests of DESPERATELY attempting to continue the Syrian conflict via Kurdish proxy forces rather than IS, al-Qaeda, and al-Nusra, which paid fighters all failed in their commission to disrupt, destabilise Syria and force Assad out of power. America's desperate hope is that SOMEHOW the Kurds would succeed, whereas reality dictates not a snow-flakes chance in hell.

Eric 'sweetie' Schmidt image Thought Police of the 21st Century Chris Hedges via claire, Sunday, Jan 21 2018, 9:27pm
The abolition of net neutrality and the use of algorithms by Facebook, Google, YouTube and Twitter to divert readers and viewers from progressive, left-wing and anti-war sites, along with demonizing as foreign agents the journalists who expose the crimes of corporate capitalism and imperialism, have given the corporate state the power to destroy freedom of speech. Any state that accrues this kind of power will use it. And for that reason I traveled last week to Detroit to join David North, the chairperson of the international editorial board of the World Socialist Web Site, in a live-stream event calling for the formation of a broad front to block an escalating censorship while we still have a voice.

text The NSA Is a Blackmail Agency Paul Craig Roberts via jane, Sunday, Jan 21 2018, 9:03pm
The main function of the National Security Administration is to collect the dirt on members of the house and senate, the staffs, principal contributors, and federal judges. The dirt is used to enforce silence about the crimes of the security agencies.

text Alternative Media Journalists Continue to Support the Illusion sarah, Sunday, Jan 21 2018, 8:31pm
An otherwise good investigative journalist titles his latest story thus: "Trump’s Plan B for Syria: Occupation and Intimidation.” I mean really Mr Whitney, it is established fact that all presidents post JFK serve minority elite interests and are therefore captured PUPPETS.

Regarding foreign policy the elite status quo hasn’t missed a beat since Bush senior was president. The claim that Trump, who clearly knows jack shit about anything foreign, makes plans or decisions is preposterous. It is a major disappointment that any knowledgeable journalist would attribute foreign policy decisions or “plans” to dunce/stooge president Trump. ALL foreign policy decisions are clearly issued from the deep state or shadow government -- consistency over a period of presidents clearly indicates that REALITY.

Various algorithms and other manipulative strategies utilised by Big Tech for years, are clearly harmful to developing youth and young adults raised with digital devices, no argument. Facebook's high placed insiders have revealed in a video, how the company intentionally manipulates the minds and emotions of users for gain, without any regard whatsoever for detrimental impact on users and society, which is now proven.

US Sec. of State Rex Tillerson recently delivered a nice backhanded slap to the face of Putin by announcing that uninvited, therefore illegal, US occupation forces will remain in Syria indefinitely -- how does it feel, neutered Putin, the ally you do not need in times of crisis, as Russia’s track record highlights?

text Memo Madness, Media Hysteria and Political Intrigues jaxie, Friday, Jan 19 2018, 10:17pm
The US puppet state -- to the globalist oligarchs -- is currently undergoing yet another pathetic attempt at obfuscation via claims that a certain memo would destroy Mueller, his investigation into ‘Russiagate’ and the careers of numerous FBI officials -- BUNK! Various clear headed journalists have called the bluff of the Republicans making all the hysterical noise and inferred accusations, clearly in an effort to save their nincompoop, PUPPET president (Trump) from certain removal, which would throw the party and ruling elite policies into disarray.

cia5.jpg image The Utter Lunacy of the Rogue CIA Finian Cunningham via justin, Thursday, Jan 18 2018, 4:23pm
It should be noted that the CIA is a Rogue agency, when Jack Kennedy attempted to dismantle it and restore its original commission he was assassinated by the CIA and other rogue elements in the deep state. Furthermore, when Kennedy attempted to choke it strategically by withdrawing funds the CIA began to supply heroin initially, then expanded into cocaine in order to become financially independent or at the very least to secure an alternative, independent source of funds. Today it maintains this supply at the cost of thousands of American lives. It's cocaine shipments from Latin America via small aircraft have been exposed numerous times as were the 'Air America' shipments of heroin from the golden triangle during the Vietnam war. It now provokes a nuclear superpower, Russia, which idiotic strategy is likely to trigger WWIII. The fact is that the CIA is now run by lunatics that do not answer to anyone. (story and 2 images)

text Tricks of Political Ruling Elites judy, Wednesday, Jan 17 2018, 11:44pm
Inversion is probably the biggest trick of all in politics. For instance, it should be widely know that Democracy is MAJORITY rule either via representation or direct participation. Now the reality, in EVERY so-called democratic nation MINORITY rule applies, either by installing political puppets in office that lie to the people and then serve minorities or by forcing real representatives to toe elite policies, as various parliaments or the American Congress is owned by the elite, which provides handsome rewards to those willing to sellout their countries and the MAJORITY in favour of minority service/benefits. As previously stated that is the current status quo in all western ‘democracies,’ majority interests are discarded in favour of minority interests. Bottom line, there are no nations that are democratic! The people are PERSISTENTLY lied to then back-stabbed, choose any western nation and apply this reality for verification.

text The Normalisation of LYING and False Flag Terrorist Attacks in US Politics lex, Wednesday, Jan 17 2018, 9:39pm

text American Empire -- Almost a Complete Replication of the Fall of Ancient Rome Alfred W. McCoy via jane, Tuesday, Jan 16 2018, 9:16pm
As 2017 ended with billionaires toasting their tax cuts and energy executives cheering their unfettered access to federal lands as well as coastal waters, there was one sector of the American elite that did not share in the champagne celebration: Washington’s corps of foreign policy experts. Across the political spectrum, many of them felt a deep foreboding for the country’s global future under the leadership of President Donald Trump.

text Targeting a Rich Sick Racist President jaxie, Monday, Jan 15 2018, 7:23pm
After Trump’s “shithole countries" remarks, which were in keeping with his racist character and support base, one group has figured how to hurt, in the true sense, this sick rich individual. Unlike major corps and banks Trump's income is largely based on public real estate assets. Now consider the fact that his businesses are in HUGE debt to major banks locally and internationally and a clear, simple but highly effective strategy appears.
