So You Still Think Coronavirus is an Accident? – Coronavirus, Predicted in a 1981 Book! The Cure For Healing is Known, But Everyone Ignores it! “It’s the Perfect Biological Weapon for Wartime. “ – “Did this 1981 Dean Koontz novel really predict the birth and spread of Coronavirus? Yesterday, social media and viber groups were furiously sharing a photo of Dean Koontz’s novel The Eyes of Darkness, specifically of a page that apparently alluded to this year’s COVID-19 outbreak. In the passage that was cited, a man-made virus called the “Wuhan-400” was being described in detail. The fictional disease was described “a perfect weapon” that was developed at RDNA labs outside of the city of Wuhan.” – Amy S  – COINCIDENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Donald Trump pounces on reports Russia is seeking to help Bernie Sanders – Martin Pengelly

Assange’s Extradition Hearing Begins: Truth-Telling Journalism on Trial – “What’s going on affects all truth-telling journalists. We’re all Julian Assange on trial. His fate is ours. Who’s next on the US/UK hit list to silence? In an Orwellian age, speech, media and academic freedoms are threatened on the phony pretext of protecting national security — at a time when alleged threats are invented, not real. Censorship in the West already is the new normal. Extraditing Assange to the US for kangaroo court proceedings to convict is all about criminalizing journalism its ruling regime finds objectionable — the hallmark of totalitarian rule.” – Stephen Lendman

Trump’s Betrayal of Julian Assange – Ron Paul

Op-Ed: Stop Revolting, You Insolent Peons – “So just do the right thing, forget about your little revolution, and nominate a safe, moderate progressive like Michael Bloomberg or Ted Cruz. Then we can get back to ruling the world, and you can get back to your Netflix televisions and your doughnut pizzas. Everyone’s happy, and we don’t have to get authoritarian on your insolent asses. Get it? Got it? Good.” – Caitlin Johnstone  – GOOD TONGUE-IN-CHEEK FROM CAITLIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bernie Sanders Just Destroyed His Own Campaign (VIDEO) – Tom Luongo

Democrats unload on Bernie Sanders in likely debate preview – Steve Peoples, Meg Kinnard and Bill Barrow

Will JFK’s Party Become Sanders’ Party? – “Bloomberg can probably buy enough votes to win some states. But would the other Democratic candidates, who have fought for a year, stand aside to yield the field so this ex-Republican oligarch can save their party from Sanders? Why should they? And where is the evidence that Bloomberg can beat Sanders? Or beat Trump?” – Patrick J. Buchanan

Bloomberg’s Dictatorship Double Standard – “Mike Bloomberg’s campaign thinks that it is smart to go after Sanders for his fairly unremarkable Cuba comments despite the former mayor’s admiration for authoritarian systems in other countries. Bloomberg’s campaign Twitter account started making up fake quotes as a way to “guess” what Sanders thought about other authoritarian rulers around the world:” – Daniel Larison

Biden Claims He Worked with Chinese Leader Deng Xiaoping on Paris Climate Accord… Except Xiaoping Has Been Dead For 23 Years – Cristina Laila

Globalization and Our Precarious Medical Supply Chains – “The grave risks and dangers in the process of worldwide out-sourcing and so-called globalization of the past 30 years or so are becoming starkly clear as the ongoing health emergency across China threatens vital world supply chains from China to the rest of the world.” – F. William Engdahl

Critical Thinking Has Never Been More Important – ” Absent Russia hysteria, a Sanders vs. Trump matchup would quickly become a battle of who’s more populist, and issues that make so-called elites very uncomfortable would become widely discussed. The ruling class doesn’t want the public talking about such things so they need to turn the election into a complete circus if Sanders can’t be blocked. Instead of talking about economic insecurity, healthcare, the cost of college and wars for empire, the goal is to make Sanders and Trump spend the entire campaign season arguing about who hates Russia more.” – Michael Krieger   – GOOD ARTICLE FROM MICHAEL, AS USUAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never forget the media’s blind eye to Obama’s corruption – Jack Hellner

Five things to watch in the South Carolina debate – Max Greenwood

American Bar Association Pushes For Gun Control – “What is up with some of the professional organizations taking an anti-gun stance that clearly doesn’t reflect the views of many of their members?

TSA Searches and Interventionism – “Every time you go to the airport and are forced to undergo the TSA screening process, including the possibility of pat-down searches, keep in mind that this is for one reason alone: to ensure that the CIA and the Pentagon continue to have the “right” to intervene and meddle in the affairs of other nations. That’s what the destruction of our liberty and privacy are all about —f oreign interventionism. It is not about protecting our freedom because no one is threatening to invade and conquer the United States.” – Jacob G. Hornberger

With Grenell Appointment, the Israel Lobby’s Foothold on US Intelligence Grows Even Stronger – “With Richard Grenell now overseeing all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies, Israel’s influence over the U.S. intelligence community has reached new and troubling heights.” – Whitney Webb

Jawboning – “How much pain are they willing or can they afford to take? The answer: Virtually none. The economy is not the stock market, but the stock market is the economy. Or rather the stock market is the biggest threat to the economy and must be protected at all costs.” – Sven Henrich

Yesterday, the stock market rout outed the worst of these actors.” – Pam Martens and Russ Martens
