US Empire’s Passion For Iraqi Democracy Magically Disappears – “It is not a mysterious coincidence that all these horrible dictatorships that urgently need a forceful injection of freedom and democracy just so happen to reside right next to each other. The fight for control over the Middle East has always been about controlling important fossil fuel resources and trade routes, and thereby controlling the world. If the empire can’t gain control of the nations in the region via absorption into the imperial blob (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Turkey, etc) or just constructing a satellite from scratch on top of a previously existing nation (Israel), then the empire will work to gain control by attempting to replace any noncompliant governments with compliant ones (Iraq, Syria, Iran).” – Caitlin Johnstone   – GOOD ARTICLE FROM CAITLIN AS USUAL;  AND TO SUBSTANTIATE WHAT SHE IS TALKING ABOUT, JUST WATCH THE SHORT, 2 MINUTE VIDEO FROM 2007!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trump Tries Real Hard to Start a War for Israel – Kurt Nimmo

Trump’s Mass Deception on Iran – “Virtually all politicians lie, none in memory more repeatedly and egregiously than Trump. It’s so excessively over the top it begs the question. Is he unable to distinguish between facts and fiction or is he inherently deceptive by nature? His Big Lies fool no one informed on what’s going on at home and abroad.” – Stephen Lendman

Lies, the Bethlehem Doctrine, and the Illegal Murder of Soleimani – “In one of the series of blatant lies the USA has told to justify the assassination of Soleimani, Mike Pompeo said that Soleimani was killed because he was planning “Imminent attacks” on US citizens. It is a careful choice of word. Pompeo is specifically referring to the Bethlehem Doctrine of Pre-Emptive Self Defence” – Craig Murray

America Escalates its “Democratic” Oil War in the Near East – Michael Hudson

Has Trump set a Precedent for Killing US Personnel? – “The Iranians have been cool and calm as usual, with no hint or plans for a quick response. But Iran does not control what Muslims worldwide might want to do, including those extremist groups who make it their business to kill civilians. Will they initiate killing sprees on Americans as a personal revenge of their own?” – Jim Dean

Trump Repeats Threat to Commit War Crimes – Mish

THE MAFIA WOULD HAVE BEEN PROUD – “President Trump proudly took credit for authorizing the assassination, a brazen violation of international law. He seemed unfazed that most of the rest of the world sees the US as ‘Murder Inc.’ For Trump, the killing will boost his standing with Republican/Evangelical voters in this year’s elections and promote his faux tough guy image – this from a man who repeatedly dodged Vietnam era military service and called for an end to America’s Mideast wars.” – Eric Margolis

“World War 3? The US Has Crossed A Red Line… But It’s Not The One They Think” – “With the killing of Suleimani the commentators are right: the US has crossed a red line – yet it’s not the one they think. The new message is simple: the US does not have to rely on sanctions, or conventional war, or trying to rally a reluctant international community to act while Iran runs rings round it. It can simply kill the Iranian leadership or take out their key facilities” – Michael Every

Is This “The Top”? – “The consensus seems to be that the stock market is on its way to much higher levels, and soon. The consensus reasoning goes like this: — Central banks can print a lot more money — Stocks rise when central banks print more money. Simply put: sales and profits no longer matter, the only thing that matters is whether central banks are printing more money. And since we all know they’ll have to print more money to keep the flying pig (the stock market) aloft, then it follows as night follows day that stocks will rise essentially forever.” – Charles Hugh Smith

Iraq Votes To Expel US Troops As Iranian MPs Chant “Death To America” – “If President Trump wanted to reduce America’s troop presence in the Middle East, he may have just got his wish, albeit not at his orders.” – Tyler Durden

Time To Leave – “Word is that Iraq’s Parliament has just voted to “expel” US troops from the country. Ok. Now we find out if Trump actually is worth being in office or whether we should be “on like Donkey Kong” right here as American citizens.” – Karl Denninger

Iranian Regime Offers $80 MILLION for President Trump’s Head! (VIDEO) – Jim Hoft

The Revenge For The Assassination Of Qassem Soleimani – “The Trump administration is telling fairytales about its murder of Major General Qassem Soleimani. He was not planing any “imminent attacks” on the U.S. or its interests in Iraq. Reports which claim that while calling Katyusha rockets “sophisticated weapons” can obviously be ignored. In no way was Soleimani a legitimate target for a U.S. attack. No Orwellian State Department briefing can change that.” – Moon of Alabama

The US Government Lies Constantly, And The Burden Of Proof Is On The Accuser – “How well has uncritically swallowing US government narratives about the need for military action worked out for you in the past?” – Caitlin Johnstone  – ANOTHER GOOD ARTICLE FROM CAITLIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Putin’s Hour Is At Hand – “He knows that the American empire based as it is on arrogance and lies is failing economically, socially, politically, and militarily. He understands that war serves no Russian interest. Washington’s murder of Qasem Soleimani, a great Iranian leader, indeed, one of the rare leaders in world history, has dimmed Trump’s leadership and placed the limelight on Putin. The stage is set for Putin and Russia to assume the leadership of the world.” – Paul Craig Roberts

2019: The Year the Neocons Failed – “The problem with these folks is they are relentless and still placed everywhere within the permanent bureaucracy of the U.S. government and Congress itself.

McAfee said that the U.S. representative tokens will be listed on his exchange McAfeedex so people can find out what their “representative is really worth.”The idea to tokenize all 535 members of U.S. Congress seemed to please the crypto community on Twitter. The majority of individuals are sick and tired of the bureaucrats that are bought and paid for with corporate dollars through political action committees (PACs). Most bureaucrats are so blatantly bought that people have suggested they wear sponsorship logos on their suits similar to Nascar race drivers. ” – Jamie Redman  – ACTUALLY, MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“We Do Not Seek War,” Says President Who Just Started A War – Caitlin Johnstone

Trump’s Point of No Return – “At the end of the day we are held captive by a minority of power-mad Trotskyites without any capacity for forgiveness or humility. They believe in societal order through the whip and the sword. Truly Maoist in their thinking, the only political power that exists comes from the barrel of a gun. This is why there has been zero opportunities for diplomacy with Iran. Iran is to be destroyed. If not today, tomorrow. If not then then the day after. It will not end. And any potential diplomacy was sabotaged at every turn.” – Tom Luango

U.S. Will Come To Regret Its Assassination of Qassim Soleimani – Moon of Alabama

A Dubious Official Story Masks the True Motives Behind the Soleimani Assassination – “Behind the official yet dubious justifications for the U.S. airstrike that killed a top Iranian general on Friday lies a confluence of factors — some decades in the making, others more recent — that are pushing the U.S. towards yet another catastrophic war in the Middle East.” – Whitney Webb  – GOOD ANALYSIS FROM WHITNEY!!!!!!!!!!

Possible Way (And The Markets Are Oblivious) – “We have defeated Iran? Ended the war with a single death blow? Or so the chest-pumpers chanting “USA!, USA!, USA!” want us to believe? I have a question, assuming the chain of events are true as we’ve been told (which I would not assume): Why would there not be another retaliation even bigger than Iran “violently attacking the US embassy in Baghdad”? Trump killing Soleimani does not make things better, but rather, it makes things worse. Much worse. Economic misery and financial ruin are coming to the United States. But now, that’s not all that’s coming. That’s right! There’s more! It seems they’re going to add in some random acts of terror, just to keep everybody nice and edgy, and I wouldn’t be surprised one bit if we see something on the scale of that terrible day back in September of 2001. We’re in for some very dark times.” – Paul “Half Dollar” Eberhart

Modern times have seen a resurgence in the use of this flag and phrase, and while many who fly it are a part of the failed Tea Party movement, many others, like myself, have and fly this flag as a symbol against tyranny.

US Assassination Of Top Iranian Military Official May Ignite World War – “Many are understandably claiming that this geostrategically pivotal confrontation was precisely what Trump was installed to facilitate all along. Make no mistake, Iran is not Iraq or Libya. A full-scale war against Iran would be many times more deadly, costly and destabilizing than those interventions; the UK’s Admiral Lord West told The Daily Star Online last year that winning such a war would require no less than a million troops, or nearly the total number of active duty US military personnel in the entire world.” – Caitlin Johnstone

I don’t believe that Mr. Obama actually commands any troops in this fight.

No, mass murderers are much more likely to go after people in schools and churches, where they can safely assume that the people they are targeting are unarmed and, therefore, unable to defend themselves from the onslaught. Texans obviously understood the logic of that argument because they amended their concealed-carry law to permit people to carry concealed weapons into church.

Bloomberg on Texas Church Shooting: Citizens should not have guns; Only Cops should decide when to shoot. – Off Grid Survival

Michael Bloomberg Suggests Incredibly Racist Solution to Gun Crime – “For one, while there is a horrific murder problem in inner-city minority communities, specifically where drugs and gangs are a commonality, we’ve learned that taking away guns won’t improve the problem. Millions of Americans own guns and in even the most gun saturated communities, gun crime is very low. It’s not the gun, it’s the culture in that area. If you take away the guns, the gangs will resort to different means of killing each other, be it with knives or heavy objects. You’ll hardly see a slowdown in the murder rate at all. But aside from that, what Bloomberg suggested is just flat-out racist. Keep in mind that he painted an entire skin color as incapable of controlling itself, and his suggestion was to control them by taking away their rights and putting them under a disadvantage against authorities.” – Brandon Morse  – IF YOU DON’T THINK BLOOMBERG AS PRESIDENT WON’T HESITATE TO TAKE AWAY YOUR 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS, THEN YOU ARE DELUSIONAL!!!!

USA Today Op-Ed on Church Shooting: ‘Terrifying’ That Parishioners Were Armed! – “The media won’t concede that guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Even when armed churchgoers stop a gunman and prevent a mass shooting this past Sunday, some callous journalists used this event as a way to argue for more gun control.” – Kristine Marsh

Texas Governor Calling for New Fusion Centers to End Armed Violence – “Fusion centers are the federal government’s favorite way of converting local police into local outposts of the federal police and surveillance state.” – Joe Wolverton, II, J.D.

Illinois Lawmakers Divert Money Intended To Facilitate FOIDs – “A government raiding funding from one program to help pay for another is hardly new. Governments have been doing that for decades. The problem, however, is that this program is meant to facilitate a constitutionally-protected right, namely the right to keep and bear arms. People cannot legally purchase a firearm in the state without a FOID card, yet the money meant to make it possible is being diverted to other places.” – Tom Knighton

Nullify Government Tyranny: In 2020, Harness the Power of Your Discontent – “Twenty years into the 21st century, and what do we have to show for it? Government corruption, tyranny and abuse have propelled us at warp speed towards a full-blown police state in which egregious surveillance, roadside strip searches, police shootings of unarmed citizens, censorship, retaliatory arrests, the criminalization of lawful activities, warmongering, indefinite detentions, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture, police brutality, profit-driven prisons, and pay-to-play politicians have become the new normal. Here’s just a small sampling of the laundry list of abuses—cruel, brutal, immoral, unconstitutional and unacceptable—that have been heaped upon us by the government over the past two decades.” – John W.

If the answer is no, we may not have much chance of continuing as a peaceful, functioning country. The madness is distributed over many realms of American life, with the common denominator of a thinking class fallen into disordered thinking.

Russiagate Investigation Now Endangers Obama – “The problem in America isn’t either Obama or Trump; it’s neither merely the Democratic Party, nor merely the Republican Party; it is instead both; it is the Deep State. That’s the reality; and the process that got us here started on 26 July 1945 and secretly continued on the American side even after the Soviet Union ended and Russia promptly ended its side of the Cold War. The US regime’s ceaseless thrust, since 26 July 1945, to rule the entire world, will climax either in a Third World War, or in a US revolution to overthrow and remove the Deep State and end its dictatorship-grip over America.” – Eric Zuesse  – EXCELLENT ARTICLE FROM ERIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And the general sat
And the lines on the map
Moved from side to side

Black and blue
And who knows which is which and who is who?

Up and down
And in the end it’s only round and round and round

“Haven’t you heard
It’s a battle of words?”
The poster bearer cried.
“Listen, son,”
Said the man with the gun,
“There’s room for you inside.”

“Well, I mean, they’re gonna kill ya, so like, if you give ’em a quick sh…short, sharp shock, they don’t do it again.
Dig it? I mean he got off light, ’cause I could’ve given him a thrashin’ but I only hit him once.
It’s only the difference between right and wrong, innit? I mean good manners don’t cost nothing, do they? Eh?”

Down and out
It can’t be helped but there’s a lot of it about

With, without
And who’ll deny it’s what the fighting’s all about?

It’s a busy day
I’ve got things on my mind
For want of the price
Of tea and a slice

‘Because You’d Be in Jail!’ The Real Reason Democrats Are Pushing Trump Impeachment? – “Trump accused his Democratic opponent of deleting 33,000 emails, while adding that he would get a “special prosecutor and we’re going to look into it…” To this, Clinton said “it’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,” to which Trump deadpanned, without missing a beat, “because you’d be in jail.” Now if that remark didn’t get the attention of high-ranking Democratic officials, perhaps Trump’s comments at a Virginia rally days later, when he promised to “drain the swamp,” made folks sit up and take notice.” – Robert Bridge  – EXCELLENT ARTICLE AND MORE THAN LIKELY THE TRUTH BEHIND EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fake News at the OK Corral – “OK today is a variation of okay, a term of approval, acceptance or acknowledgement. Along with the word is a familiar hand gesture, the thumb and index finger touching end to end, forming a circle for the O. Like so many other American cultural traditions, leave it to the left to find something as innocuous as the OK hand gesture to be a racist symbol, a secret dog whistle of white supremacy.” – Brian C.

President AOC. It’s What’s Next – “Obviously. She’s got fame, a whole lot of bandwidth, and a political organization. Bernie is old. Even in the unlikely chance that he becomes the nominee and wins, somebody has to inherit his organization. It’s all but inevitable. Yes, I know. She’s an idiot. She’s lied about her past. Her only skill is narcissism. Sound like a two-term radical Democrat who turned the country so far leftward that it’s a tough fight even getting it back to where it was in 2007? Betting that voters won’t vote for an absolutely terrible candidate is not a good bet.” – Daniel Greenfield

Shattering the Overton Window – “There is one bedrock truth about governments: they are based on coercion, violence, and fraud. It’s easy to mistake lack of public reaction to stories like the above for insouciance or mental sloth, but many people have internalized that governments repeatedly lie, they don’t need the details.
