The Hypocrisy of President Trump and His Administration – “How hypocritical can the Trump administration get? Its sanctions are just fine despite their hurting innocent civilians of several countries, in some cases to the point of starvation, and yet at the same time, they object to the private boycott and sanctions against Israel (which seem to have limited impact) and object to it on the grounds of economic warfare!” -Robert Wenzel
Lindsey Graham Calls for New Gun Laws – Wants to Shut Down “Hate Sites” on the Internet as Defined by the Left (VIDEO) – “Lindsey called for restrictions on the First Amendment and the Second Amendment in the same clip! Lindsey Graham is a very dangerous man.” – Jim Hoff
NYT Backs the Big Lie About an Iranian Threat – “The Times is a lying machine, a propaganda producer — news, information and analysis on major issues banned from its editions. On domestic issues, it’s a mouthpiece for Wall Street and other predatory corporate interests. On geopolitical issues, it’s a press agent for US wars aggression and by other means, vilifying nonbelligerent nations threatening no one on the US target list for regime change. The Times gives media a bad name. It long ago substituted state approved propaganda for journalism the way it should be.” – Stephen Lendman
HONG KONG: DON’T PROVOKE THE DRAGON – “The massive rioting in Hong Kong earlier this week set off alarm bells in Beijing, which runs an Orwellian police state on the mainland. China’s hardline leaders rightly fear that the fracas in Hong Kong could incite other uprisings across China. Everyone remembers the long, bloody Cultural Revolution of the 1970’s with its rampaging Red Guards. Perhaps more important, Chinese leaders study their nation’s history and draw lessons from it, unlike America’s history-free politicians. For the Americans, history is what was on Fox TV the week before. What Beijing really fears is another Taiping Rebellion.” – Eric Margolis
Salvini Thwarted Is Not Salvini Denied – “Because while you can manipulate events in the short-term you can’t change the overall trend. This is something both the EU and the Italian deep state have yet to learn.” – Tom Luongo
Are Gene Edited Cows or Humans What We Really Need? – “In the US where Monsanto and the GMO industry has succeeded in creating effectively no government regulation of GMO plants such as corn or soybeans or cotton, the biotech industry has been more successful. The USDA recently proposed excluding the new gene-editing technologies such as CRISPR from in effect any regulation. This ignores the purpose of such regulation which is to hold the health and safety of the individual and of the environment paramount to any potential marketing gains from easy regulation” – F. William Engdahl
Writing on the Wall – “The last time these two yields inverted was in 2007, during the run-up to the financial crisis. And while a recession may not immediately follow this signal, you can already read the writing on the wall. Call it an early warning. Call it divine insight. Call it spiritual graffiti, if you will. But ignore it at your own peril.” – MN Gordon
VERSE FOR THE DAY
Job 31:6 Let me be weighed in an even balance that God may know mine integrity.
LYRIC FOR THE WEEK
Money, get away.
Get a good job with good pay and you’re okay.
Money, it’s a gas.
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash.
New car, caviar, four star daydream,
Think I’ll buy me a football team.
Money, get back.
I’m all right Jack keep your hands off of my stack.
Money, it’s a hit.
Don’t give me that do goody good bullshit.
I’m in the high-fidelity first class traveling set
And I think I need a Lear jet.
Money, it’s a crime.
Share it fairly but don’t take a slice of my pie.
Money, so they say
Is the root of all evil today.
But if you ask for a raise it’s no surprise that they’re
giving none away.
( Money by Roger Waters )
