Iran Downs Hostile US Spy Drone in Its Airspace – “A Pentagon spy plane provocatively entering Iranian airspace when tensions between both countries are at a fever pitch was a hostile act, further heightening them.

Report: US Planning “Massive” Airstrike On An Iranian Facility – “So the idea that this will just be a limited strike and the Iranians won’t respond seems extremely unlikely, but this is how you sell a big war: you pretend that you are selling a small war,” – Caitlin Johnstone
A Proactive Russia and China Could Prevent US War with Iran – “There is so much disinformation that it is difficult to judge the Israeli news report below that the US is planning a military attack on Iran. Israel wants the US to attack Iran and the report could be an attempt to push events in that direction. There is no valid reason for Washington to serve Israeli interests. It would be extremely irresponsible for Washington to risk starting another war. As Russian and Chinese interests could be threatened by a US war with Iran, the situation could become uncontrollable. If there is a real prospect of a US attack on Iran, it would be a responsible action for Russia and China to block it in advance by taking a firm position. ” – Paul Craig Roberts
The Jackboots Are Coming: Mass Arrests, Power Grabs and the Politics of Fear – “How do you persuade a populace to embrace totalitarianism, that goose-stepping form of tyranny in which the government has all of the power and “we the people” have none? You persuade the people that the menace they face (imaginary or not) is so sinister, so overwhelming, so fearsome that the only way to surmount the danger is by empowering the government to take all necessary steps to quash it, even if that means allowing government jackboots to trample all over the Constitution. This is how you use the politics of fear to persuade a freedom-loving people to shackle themselves to a dictatorship. It works the same way every time.” – John W. Whitehead – EXCELLENT AS ALWAYS, EVERYONE SHOULD READ JOHN’S WEEKLY COLUMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pride Month Shines A Light On Something Many In The 2A Community Have Ignored – “Regardless of your opinion on homosexuality, bisexuality, transsexuality, or anything else, everyone has a right to live. People have a right to exist, whether you agree with what they do with that existence or not. And a growing number are buying guns and learning to defend themselves. Anyone willing to defend the Second Amendment needs to be held close as an ally. I don’t care about anything beyond that. I may find disagreement on other issues, sure, but that’s trivial when it comes to the gun debate. And there’s a reason the LGBT community is arming up. Simply put, armed gays don’t get bashed.” – Tom Knighton – GOOD POINT!!!

It IS Different This Time – “They’re right. It IS different this time. It’s worse. Much, much worse. What is? Everything. In terms of preparedness for the next recession that is. Debt is higher than ever, be it corporate debt, government debt, central banks balance sheets, available ammunition to deal with a new recession, wealth inequality, the social divisions and political extremes, and now trillion dollar deficits, everything points to a much more fragile system. Oh yes on paper low rates keep it all afloat, but the context is as ugly as it gets. Here we are, the great collapse unfolding in front of us” – Sven Henrich
