She’s a neocon Ziofascist geopolitical know-nothing – the most unqualified ever US UN envoy, an embarrassment to the position she holds. Paul Craig Roberts calls her an “imbecile,” “mindless” and “stupid…the total antithesis of a diplomat.” Reportedly she’s Trump’s choice to replace Rex Tillerson as secretary of state, his departure likely by year end or […]

America’s response was expected, Trump tweeting: “North Korea has conducted a major Nuclear Test. Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States…” “North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success.” “South […]

ISIT MY NEW WEB SITE: stephenlendman.org (Home – Stephen Lendman). Contact at lendmanstephen@sbcglobal.net. Heated rhetoric risks something much more serious. The problem lies in Washington, not Pyongyang. Throughout its post-WW II history, the DPRK never attacked another country. In June 1950, it responded to repeated South Korean cross-border provocations. Harry Truman’s devastating war followed – why Pyongyang genuinely fears […]

Trump escalated Obama’s war on Syria, naked aggression against a sovereign independent country threatening no others – based on a litany of Big Lies. According to his press secretary Sean Spicer on Monday, further escalation may be coming, saying: “The United States has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime […]

… in Syrian Airspace The original source of this article is Global Research In response to the US-led coalition downing of a Syrian Su-22 warplane in its own airspace, a lawless aggressive act, Russia’s Defense Ministry issued the following statement: “As of June 19 this year, the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation has ended […]

He’s dead wrong on vital domestic and geopolitical issues – serving wealth, power and privilege exclusively, harming most others at home and abroad. He’s right about a deplorable witch-hunt – dark forces assaulting the office of the presidency and the nation if successful, an undeclared coup d’etat attempt, wanting easily controlled Pence replacing him. He may have been the deep state’s choice for president all along, once Trump emerged last aspirant standing among the array of GOP hopefuls – Pence a neocon Tea Party hardliner, an imperial war cheerleader, an Islamophobe and Russophobe, hostile to immigrant rights, and much more of concern.

It’s one of the dirtiest of dirty open secrets. US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) documents prove it – obtained by Judicial Watch through an FOIA lawsuit. They show ISIS, al-Qaeda and like-minded terrorist groups are the “major forces” used as US foot soldiers in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere. The myth of so-called “moderate rebels” was long ago […]

The original source of this article is Global Research North Korea’s geopolitical policies and America’s are world’s apart. Pyongyang never attacked another country, threatens none now. America wages permanent wars, destroying one nation after another, threatening all sovereign independent countries with regime change. Its agenda is humanity’s greatest threat. The DPRK has just cause for […]

Neocon senators John McCain (R. AR) and Lindsey Graham (R. SC) likely believe war is peace. Freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength – with attribution to George Orwell. They’re furious about Secretary of State Tillerson, saying “the longer-term status of President Assad will be decided by the Syrian people.” Separately, US UN envoy Nikki […]

The original source of this article is Global Research CENTCOM Commander on Phony Regional Threats America’s rage for endless wars is the greatest threat to world peace, stability and security. Russia fears a possible preemptive US nuclear attack on its territory.    According to Russia’s General Staff deputy head of operations Gen. Viktor Poznikhir, “(t)he presence […]

Massacre of Civilians in Mosul Today – Graphic video 18+ Video: https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=0c1_1402073211 Operation Mosul: A Medieval Massacre By Stephen Lendman Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova described it this way weeks after US-led terror-bombing and Iraqi ground operations began last October – long before the worst horrors ongoing now. US-orchestrated operations are being conducted under “conditions […]

The original source of this article is Global Research His Tuesday address was long on making America safe for Wall Street, war profiteers and other corporate predators, short on what’s most needed to serve all Americans equitably and promote world peace. He focused on increased military spending at a time major cuts are needed, combating […]

Hollywood Academy Awards are all about film promotion for profits, unrelated to the industry’s best, way too little of it around. They also reflect longstanding Tinseltown ties to Washington. Scripts feature pro-Western propaganda. Studio bosses are well compensated for colluding in glorifying America’s wars and demonizing its enemies – including “Islamic terrorists” and Russia. Washington […]

America uses banned depleted uranium (DU) weapons in all its wars, ongoing since first developed during the Vietnam era. The 1925 Geneva Protocol and succeeding Geneva Weapons Conventions prohibited use of chemical and biological agents in any form as weapons of war. Although no Geneva Convention or other treaty specifically bans radioactive uranium weapons, including […]

In late January, Senate Republicans John McCain and Rob Portman strongly opposed lifting sanctions on Russia, McCain saying: “I hope President Trump will put an end to this speculation and reject such a reckless course. If he does not, I will work with my colleagues to codify sanctions against Russia into law.” Portman absurdly claimed […]

The original source of this article is Global Research Trump has a blind spot when it comes to China, Iran and long-suffering Palestinians, apparently bent on continuing hostile policies – not a good thing. There’s no good ending to this scenario if it persists. He warned Palestinians against suing Israel in the International Criminal Court […]

The original source of this article is Global Research Saber rattling by Trump administration officials on China give pause for concern, continuing Obama’s hostile approach, risking direct confrontation if not curbed. At his Senate confirmation hearing, Secretary of State designee Rex Tillerson recklessly said “(w)e are going to have to send China a clear signal […]

The original source of this article is Global Research Next week he’ll become America’s 45th president, an awesome responsibility for anyone, especially having to deal with bipartisan neocons infesting Washington. – hell-bent for endless wars of aggression.   Whatever Trump said on the stump no longer matters. Once in office, his agenda will speak for […]

The original source of this article is Global Research In his waning days in office, Obama seems determined to intensify US adversarial relations with Russia, obstruct Syria peace talks in Astana, Kazakhstan later in January, and who knows what else. With attribution to Franklin Roosevelt’s December 8, 1941 speech to Congress in response to Japan’s […]

The original source of this article is Global Research Throughout his deplorable tenure, thankfully near ending, Obama exceeded Star Wars, going where no previous US president dared go before. His legacy reflects failure domestically and geopolitically, lawlessness and contempt for humanity. Fake news hype about nonexistent “Russian aggression” wore thin long ago. Does any sensible person […]
