State of the Union – “It’s conceivable, in a nation that absolutely can’t make sense of itself, that Mr. Trump’s annual report to congress will be as incomprehensible as this year’s Superbowl halftime show. You can be sure the atmosphere will be frosty to the max when the Golden Golem of Greatness lumbers down the aisle of congress’s house on Tuesday night. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Democratic majority turns its backs on him during the always excruciating preliminaries and then just walks out of the chamber. Don’t expect the usual excessive rounds of applause from the president’s own party this time, either, in the big, half-empty room. They don’t know what to do about him at this point… or what to do with themselves, for that matter.” – James Howard Kunstler
WaPo Super Bowl ad demonstrates exactly what’s wrong with the media – “The Washington Post sponsored an ad during the Super Bowl that may have been the most pretentious, the most exaggerated paean to the religion of journalism ever created.” – Rick Moran – SAW IT, MADE ME WANT TO PUKE!!!!!
Vladimir Putin to the West: ‘We Will Bury You!’ – “I have given this essay a “fake news” title for a good reason: to direct your attention to the fact that the incumbent President of Russia is too gentle for his and our good” – Gilbert Doctorow
Trump Saber Rattles on Venezuela – “Like his predecessors, Trump was co-opted straightaway in office into being the latest in a long line of US warrior presidents – waging war on humanity at home and abroad.” – Stephen Lendman
John Bolton’s Plan to Starve Millions of Venezuelans into Submission – “Let’s get real. Bolton doesn’t care about the people of Venezuela. If he did the US would not be imposing harsh sanctions that are resulting in malnutrition and starvation. Bolton is using the age-old technique of starving and depriving people so they will overthrow the government (this tactic rarely works—leading me to believe it is inflicted out of pure sadism—leading to the exact opposite reaction).” – Kurt Nimmo
The Lima Group: International Outlaws – ” The United States and its allied governments and media, working with American military and civilian intelligence services, are pumping out a constant flow of propaganda about the start of affairs in Venezuela to mislead and manipulate their own peoples so that they support their aggression and to undermine Venezuelans support for their revolution. We have seen this type of propaganda before, the fake stories about “human rights” abuses, economic conditions, the cries of “democracy,” the propaganda about an “authoritarian” leader, a “tyrant,” “dictator”, all labels they have used before against leaders of nations that they have later murdered; President Arbenz, Allende, Torrijos, Habyarimana, Milosevic, Hussein, Ghaddafi are examples that come quickly to mind” – Christopher Black
Today, States Are Following Madison & Jefferson & Nullifying Unconstitutional Federal “Laws” – “It’s time the rest of the states follow suit with a plethora of nullification of any and all gun laws, laws that violate our rights to due process, freedom of speech, freedom of exercise of religion and freedom to assemble, just to name a few.” – Tim Brown
MAGA Misses the Eurasia Train – “While China and Russia solidify their economic and political alliance, the U.S. is missing an historic chance to join a multilateral world, instead clinging to military empire” – Pepe Escobar
Shut Down the TSA! – “In the 18 years since Congress created the TSA, the agency has proven itself incapable of providing real security, but more than capable of harrying Americans and wasting taxpayer dollars on security theater.” – Ron Paul
A Winter Tale of Snow to Remember and Sun Long Ago – “I wrote months ago about the coming mini ice age. Recently the reality of this cooling trend became mainstream news because of a new scientific study affirming it, and even more recently, the midwest decided to remind us of what mini ice ages might feel like.” – David Haggith
Legislatures Look at Enacting Change With Numerous State Gun Laws – “CONGRESS SEEMS LOCKED REGARDING FIREARMS, SO LEGISLATURES ARE WORKING ON STATE GUN LAWS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE, SOME GOOD AND SOME BAD FOR GUN OWNERS.” – Personal Defense World
