Come Home, America: Stop Policing the Globe and Put an End to Wars-Without-End – “I agree wholeheartedly with George S. McGovern, a former Senator and presidential candidate who opposed the Vietnam War, about one thing: I’m sick of old men dreaming up wars for young men to die in. It’s time to bring our troops home. Bring them home from Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. Bring them home from Germany, South Korea and Japan. Bring them home from Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Oman. Bring them home from Niger, Chad and Mali. Bring them home from Turkey, the Philippines, and northern Australia. That’s not what’s going to happen, of course.” – John W. Whitehead

Who Created the Persian Gulf Tinderbox? – “Joe Biden’s statement that “President Trump just tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox” by assassinating Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani was not inaccurate.

Iran’s Measured Response Puts Trump in No-Win Scenario – Mish

The Deeper Story Behind the Assassination of Soleimani – “Soleimani’s death is the result of a convergence of US and Israeli interests.

Oh Omar! What’s Up With Your Tweet? – “When the people of Minnesota’s 5th congressional district elected Ilhan Omar, did they have any idea what was to come? The first Somali-American to grace the U.S. House as a representative has said many controversial things since her election in 2016. One must wonder if she’s so lost in her hatred for the president that she can no longer see the big picture. Offering military advice to Iran is beyond controversial.” – Leesa K. Donner

American Leadership Is Discredited — Will a New Leader Step Forward? – “This morning (January 7) Pompeo, the embarrassment we suffer as our Secretary of State, was on TV promising to “confront and contain” Iran.” – Paul Craig Roberts

A warmongering, serial liar extremist, he’s recklessly dangerous and pygmy in stature compared his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov, China’s Wang Yi, and Iran’s Mohammad Javad Zarif.” – Stephen Lendman

The Compound Eye – “The compound eye is a good way to imagine how the surveillance state will keep tabs on the subjects in the near future. For example, everyone has a mobile phone. At every point, the phone is tracking its location, which means it is tracking your location. Of course, the mobile phone is not the only input device. Over Christmas, millions of Americans were encouraged to install surveillance devices in their homes by friends and family. Maybe it was an Alexa listening device from Amazon or a Nest Doorbell surveillance device from Google. All of these gadgets are collecting data on your life inside and around your home. It is then fed to the same data-centers that have all of your movements and associations collected from your phone.” – Zman  – GOOD ARTICLE!!!!!

Since 9/11, DHS, the FBI, the CIA, and countless other alphabet soup agencies have turned the United States into a public surveillance monstrosity. In 19 years, one terrorist attack has done what no one else could have dreamed of: turn America’s freedoms into a distant memory.” – MassPrivateI

If you are in an area that you do not know, however, that’s where the universal edibility test comes in.” – Bob Rodgers
