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 […]

The original source of this article is Global Research According to a document published by the Arabic Al-Youm Al-Sabaa broadsheet, John Kerry and national security advisor Susan Rice told a Palestinian delegation headed by Saeb Erekat and intelligence chief Majed Faraj in Washington that the Obama administration would abstain on SC Res. 2334 if its […]

The atmosphere in America is surreal and dangerous: imperial madness combined with escalated war on fundamental freedoms. With five weeks left in office, Obama seems determined to leave in a greater blaze of infamy than already, the most lawless, reckless president in living memory.  He’s a greater war criminal than all his predecessors, heading America’s […]

The original source of this article is Global Research “(W)hen it comes to the war against terrorists, I’m a hawk,” she said. “When it comes to counterproductive wars of regime change, I’m a dove.” She opposed condemning Bashar al-Assad, saying targeting him was “a thinly veiled attempt to use the rationale of ‘humanitarianism’ as a […]

Claiming it is utter nonsense. Not a shred of evidence suggests it. Irresponsibly blaming Moscow for hacking DNC emails or any other type interference in America’s electoral process reflects longstanding Russia bashing. In response to being named Time magazine’s person of the year, Trump told the publication that accusing Russia is politically motivated. “I don’t […]

Powerful interests in America threaten alternative sources of news, information and opinion. Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter and You Tube announced plans for a joint Internet censorship database on the phony pretext of eliminating “extremist content.” Their scheme threatens media and speech freedom, likely aiming for sanitized online content only, independent views censored, threatening writers like myself […]

The original source of this article is Global Research Obama will be remembered for waging endless wars of aggression throughout his tenure, at home and abroad – a war criminal remaining unaccountable for his high crimes, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, one of many examples mocking its legitimacy. He’ll leave office in January after bombing […]

The original source of this article is Global Research At a Thursday Cincinnati rally, Trump announced retired Marine Corps General James Mattis as defense secretary – calling him “the closest thing we have to (WW II era) General George Patton.” Earlier he tweeted he’s “being considered for Secretary of Defense…A true General’s General!”  He last […]

Promises are easy to make, fulfilling them another matter entirely. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Trump has lots of proving to do. I intend cutting him some slack, withholding criticism like media scoundrels and many others until he starts governing – then holding his feet to the fire if he fails […]

Will He Continue Imperial Wars? If past in America is prologue, hold the cheers for change. Expect business as usual to continue, perhaps disguised by Trump’s unorthodox way of communicating – for how long before supporters catch on, switching allegiance if they feel betrayed. Behind the scenes, he’s already facing enormous pressure to maintain continuity, some wiggle room granted him the way it is for all US leaders. In case he forgets, perhaps a manipulated Wall Street crash and/or 9/11-type false flag will steer him back on the track deep state power brokers demand. America is run for its privileged few alone, most others exploited, suffering hugely under neoliberal harshness, their tax dollars increasingly going for militarism, warmaking and corporate handouts. Expecting Trump to come to their rescue is like waiting for Godot.

The original source of this article is Global Research Change.org is a for-profit enterprise, not an NGO – deceiving supporters by using the .org domain suffix, not .com as it should. Its business is getting people to sign petitions, along with selling advertising and personal data for added profits. Best to ignore its petitions altogether, […]

The original source of this article is Global Research On October 18, Putin halted Russian aerial operations against eastern Aleppo terrorists – while continuing to provide Syrian forces with intelligence and logistical support. After several days of fierce fighting, terrorists failed to break through government forces encircling them. They remain trapped under siege, able to […]

The original source of this article is Global Research Having closed his earlier investigation into Hillary’s use of her private email server for classified State Department documents without bringing charges, dismissing indictable evidence, it’s hard imagining a shift of agency policy now. So what’s going on? Is FBI Director Comey trying to save face, even […]

The original source of this article is Global Research Hillary is so irreparably tainted and unfit to serve, her key strategy is diverting attention from her wrongdoing two ways – bashing Trump beyond customary campaign jousting and spreading misinformation and Big Lies about Russia, using the media as press agents to do her dirty work. […]

The original source of this article is Global Research Syrian land and airspace are sovereign state territory. No foreign power may deny its military or other aircraft from operating anywhere within its borders – or Russian planes and ground personnel invited by its government. America and its rogue partners operate illegally in Syria. On the […]
