Bomb Bomb Bomb Iran

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Pablo Picasso Femme aux bras leves- Tête de Dora Maar- 1936   As a nation, you’re certifiedly (is that a word?!) in deep trouble if and when Donald Trump is your most peaceloving man. But nevertheless, that is America today. It all harks back to the days when Trump was first -grudgingly and painstakingly- recognized as an actual presidential candidate. He campaigned as a man who would end the costly and neverending decades-old and counting US wars far away

MH17: Compromised From The Start

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Caravaggio I musici 1595-96   The investigation into the crash of the MH17 Malaysia Airlines plane in East Ukraine was always compromised, right from the start. The crash on July 17 2014 came shortly after the “Euromaidan revolution” in Kiev – which first began in November 2013 and culminated in the ousting of elected president Yanukovich on 23 February 2014, happily helped along by John McCain, Victoria Nuland and then-US ambassador to Ukraine (now ambassador to Greece) Geoffrey Pyatt

Square Minus Zero

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Gustave Courbet The village maidens 1852   I intentionally start writing this mere minutes away from Fed chair Jay Powell’s latest comments. Intentionally, because the importance ascribed to those comments only means we have gotten so far removed from what capitalism and free markets are supposed to be about, that it’s pathetic. The comments mean something for rich socialists, but nothing for the man in the street. Or, rather, they mean that the man in the street will get

Where's Jerry Dammers When You Need Him?

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail David Hockney A Bigger Splash 1967   Just trying to find angles here. Trying to find people who could help Julian Assange. But so many of them are already dead. Can you imagine how different things might have been if Martin Luther King had still been alive to speak out on his situation? Or Muhammad Ali, JFK and Bobby Kennedy? Nelson Mandela? How about Bob Marley? Or, you know, Johnny Cash? Joe Strummer? We lost so many voices, and

Putin, the African Queen

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail While filming “The African Queen” everyone fell sick from drinking the water except for Humphrey Bogart and John Huston, who drank whiskey     Luke Harding is a former journalist for the Guardian. I say former because while he is still writing for the paper, he lost his one remaining shred of credibility last November with an article about Paul Manafort visiting Julian Assange multiple times in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, which soon was discredited as badly as

A War of Questions

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Francisco Goya The dog 1820-23   What follows are items from sources not everyone may like, such as Fox and The Hill. But please bear with me, because if you want to understand what is about to happen in the US, you’re going to need this kind of info, and you’re not likely to get it from the mainstream media. The overall term here is questions. There are too many to list. Some will merely be asked, some will

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Pablo Picasso Rest (Marie-Thérèse Walter) 1932 With the news that Julian Assange is “wasting away” in Belmarsh prison hospital, and with UN rapporteur Professor Nils Melzer’s report detailing how this happens, I’m once again drawn towards the lawlessness that all “authorities” involved in his case have been displaying, and with impunity. They all apparently think they are literally above the law. Their own laws. But they can’t be, nowhere, not above their respective national laws nor the international ones

War and Young Americans

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Joseph Mallord William Turner Teasing the Donkey 1827   So we’re going to do this all over again? Well, not if I can help it. Not that I have much hope that I can, mind you. As the bastions of war chime on, my voice, like so many others, will be drowned out. The military industrial complex knows how to do propaganda, better than anyone. But I’ll try. Vietnam gave the US its biggest ever defeat, both militarily and

But it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop… And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land.” – Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, one

Mueller Never Wanted The Truth

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Peter Paul Rubens Daniel in the lions’ den c1615   Zero Hedge ran an article about omissions from the Mueller report and/or investigation. It’s instructive, but there is more. First, some bits from that article: Major Mueller Report Omissions Suggest Incompetence Or A Coverup Robert Mueller’s 448-page “Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election” contains at least two major omissions which suggest that the special counsel and his entire team of world-class Democrat attorneys are either utterly
