"When Hillary Gets Scared, She Plays The Russia Card"

That Hillary in power will try (and possibly) succeed in going to war once again, this time targeting Russia or its allies (the Syrian state, the Ukrainian Russian separatists), is frightening.  The electorate is malleable, its collective memory short. What should be universally acknowledged truths (the Iraq War was based on lies) are in fact not grasped adequately by the masses. If they were, how could anybody vote for hideous Hillary?

George Soros' False Flag Factories

Global hedge fund tycoon and political provocateur George Soros is leading a war of symbols, namely flags and banners either resurrected or conjured up by his myriad non-profit groups, to stir religious, racial, and ethnic tensions the world over.

More Troubling Evidence That Hillary Clinton Will Start WW3

Putin, a former KGB agent, “doesn’t have a soul,” Clinton quipped... Is this the sort of starting point you want from a new U.S. President? There’s a reason so many genuine progressives and liberals can’t stomach Hillary Clinton and refuse to vote for her. Sure, there’s the rampant embrace of cronyism and incessant oligarch coddling, but there’s also her penchant for bloodthirsty militarism.

Retired Green Beret Warns "We Haven't Been This Close To Nuclear War In A Long Time"

As can readily be seen by the current events, the world has not been this close to a nuclear war and World War 3 in a long time.  There are four major flashpoints right now that could easily escalate and ignite a powder keg, transforming from a regional conflict or conflicts into a world war: Syria, the South China Sea, Ukraine, and North and South Korea.  The “reconstruction” of a Cold War-type faceoff, initiated by the U.S. and NATO building up forces in Eastern Europe and facing off against Russia.

Why Syria Matters To You

Syria is drawing in major global and regional powers. When, for example, the US and Russia are engaged in a country - with very different goals and supporting hostile factions - it is certainly not something to dismiss out of hand. On the contrary, Syria matters a great deal. If nothing else, it has become a test of the strength of powers with interests far beyond Syria.

Deplorables, Delusionals, & Demagogues United By A Flawed Foreign Policy

If you are an alien, terrestrial or extraterrestrial, looking at our nation these days, you would be scratching your head trying to figure out why our country is known as the USA and not the DPA (Disunited Peoples of America).  Only thing that appears to unite us –  not all but most – is the love of empire and pride in a corporate-military war machine that mercilessly sucks a great part of our economic, intellectual and moral resources; truly impoverishing our people and making Americans, friends of some but enemies of most people around the world.

The Existential Madness Of Putin-Bashing

Official Washington loves its Putin-bashing but demonizing the Russian leader stops a rational debate about U.S.-Russia relations and pushes the two nuclear powers toward an existential brink.

Bibi Backs Trump — On Putin

John McCain told Pence that Putin was a “thug and a butcher,” and Trump’s embrace of him intolerable. Said Lindsey Graham: “Vladimir Putin is a thug, a dictator…who has his opposition killed in the streets,” and Trump’s views bring to mind Munich. Remarkable. Bibi, a buddy of Vlad, gets $38 billion from the same Republican senators who, when Donald Trump says he will repay personal compliments from Vladimir Putin, gets the McCain-Graham wet mitten across the face.

The Signs Of Desperation In A "Twilight Zone Of Ignorance"

Idiocy and mendacity are a bad combo in the affairs of nations, especially in elections. The present case in the USA displays both qualities to near-perfection: on one side, a boorish pseudo-savior in zero command of ideas; on the other side, a wannabe racketeer-in-chief in full command of her instinctive deceit. Trump offers incoherent rhetoric in opposition to the current dismal order of things; Clinton offers empty, pandering rhetoric in defense of that order. Both represent an epic national drive toward political suicide.

The Disturbing Signs Of Global Conflict Continue To Gather Pace

The signs are ominous, the rhetoric constant. Whichever way you look at it, the world is slowly descending into an ever greater spiral of conflict. We all know that the current wars raging in the Middle East have the potential to go catastrophically wrong and pull the super-powers into something much bigger. You also know things are not good when the so-called ‘conspiracy theories’ from alternative media outlets eventually go mainstream...

One "Lifelong Socialist" Norwegian's Perspective On Trump

"Despite Norwegian mainstream media and political establishment support for Hillary Clinton (They also supported Mark Rubio and Bernie Sanders when they were running), I would like to apologize for our politicians and voice my support for Trump. I believe that Americans need to think about what is at stake from lifelong socialists’ perspective. Despite what people read about Norway being the best place to live, it comes with a price."

Matt Lauer Slammed By Mainstream Press After Vet Tells Hillary "I Would Have Been Imprisoned" If I Did What You Did

Among the reasons why the mainstream press is slamming moderator Matt Lauer is the following question posed by a retired navy vet: "Had I communicated this information not following the prescribed protocols I would have been prosecuted and imprisoned. Secretary Clinton, how can you expect those such as myself... to have any confidence in your leadership as president when you clearly corrupted our national security.
