The Great Disrupter Strikes Again – “The talking heads are close to having coronaries on live cable TV owing to the international ramifications of the Donald’s bombast — as displayed again late last week at his now famous press conference. This is allegedly causing grave confusion and doubt among America’s allies in Europe and East Asia. Good! Maybe next time Washington invites the world to join one of its feckless wars, no one will come.” – David Stockman
‘Nuclear Holocaust Would Be Like No Other’ Trump Warns As McCain, Graham Push For War With Russia – “While the focus of the majority of reports on President Trump’s press conference was on his calling out the mainstream media for reporting fake news, he also made a huge point which largely went un-reported, other than in direct transcripts, because it did not fit the MSM’s anti-Russia narrative. Trump said that “There’s no upside” to going to war with Russia, or any other nuclear power, stating “nuclear holocaust would be like no other.”
The Illusion of Freedom: The Police State Is Alive and Well – “There is something being concocted in the dens of power, far beyond the public eye, and it doesn’t bode well for the future of this country. Anytime you have an entire nation so mesmerized by the antics of the political ruling class that they are oblivious to all else, you’d better beware. Anytime you have a government that operates in the shadows, speaks in a language of force, and rules by fiat, you’d better beware. And anytime you have a government so far removed from its people as to ensure that they are never seen, heard or heeded by those elected to represent them, you’d better beware.” – John W. Whitehead – ANOTHER GOOD COMMENTARY FROM JOHN!!!!!!

Trump Picks CFR Member for New National Security Advisor – “When considering how relevant McMaster’s CFR membership may be in his strategic position in the Trump administration, we should examine how closely he adheres to the CFR’s record for advancing internationalism, eradicating national borders, and entangling the United States and other nations into a number of supranational organizations of which the UN is the outstanding, but not the only, example.”
National Security Adviser General McMaster: The War Complex’ Resident Parrot – “That President Trump’s supporters labor under the delusion that he will roll back US aggression and regime change worldwide, only to put in place General McMaster as his National Security Adviser – a man who openly and repeatedly supports the pursuit of American global hegemony – indicates that yet again the people have been deceived and that this singular agenda will move forward unabated.”
Assange Exposes The Truth About Corporate Media: “You Are Reading Weaponized Text” – “Assange’s description of weaponized text characterizes the corporate press’ penchant for propaganda — a political establishment-friendly slant that has once-illustrious media institutions like the Washington Post and New York Times frivolously abandoning journalistic integrity whenever it’s deemed necessary.” – Claire Bernish
Church, State, and Melania Trump – “The phrase “separation of church and state” in fact appears nowhere in the Constitution but in a letter Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1802 to a group of Danbury Baptists assuring them that the First Amendment prohibited Congress from establishing a national church, such as the Church of England.”
US Raises Issue of INF Violation: Anti-Russian Campaign in Full Swing – “These are provocative statements doomed to be rejected by Moscow but they pursue a definite purpose. Evidently, some powerful circles in the US have launched a well-orchestrated campaign to prevent the improvement of Russia-US relations.”
The Criminalization of Financial Independence – “Just as the “war on drugs” criminalized and destroyed large swaths of African-American and Latino communities, the “war on cash” will further criminalize the few remaining avenues to financial independence and freedom.” – Charles Hugh Smith
San Diego To Install Street Lights With Surveillance Cameras, Mics – “A consortium of GE, Intel and AT&T will make history by outfitting San Diego with the most draconian surveillance system ever installed. The energy ‘savings’ of installing energy-efficient LED lighting have absolutely nothing to do with mass surveillance intentions.”
Forgotten History: How Goldman Sachs Helped Greece Destroy Itself – “With Greece’s economy once again hogging the headlines for all the wrong reasons and showing no sign whatsoever of emerging from its multi-year depression, we thought it was time to dust off this superlative documentary on Goldman Sach’s oft-forgotten role in the country’s downfall.”
