Kim Jung-un was upset. Trump’s VP Mike Pence made an indelicate reference to the Libyan Model. It wasn’t a good sign following John Bolton’s use of the term. The corporate propaganda media mentioned denuclearization, but left alone “we came, we saw, he died,” Hillary Clinton’s psychopathic take on Caesar in response to Gaddafi’s brutal murder.
Facebook is “excited” to announce it has launched “a new partnership with the Atlantic Council, which has a stellar reputation looking at innovative solutions to hard problems,” for instance, killing alternative media and its disruption of the national security state’s propaganda stream.
The Atlantic Council advocates on behalf of NATO, the Cold War alliance called upon in times of need—like in Libya, where it made the murder of 30,000 people and the knife rape-murder of Gaddafi possible.
Over the past few months, I’ve lost quite a few followers on Twitter.
I attribute this to deliberate action on the part of the social media giant, although I can’t prove it.
We know social media corporations are under fire for allowing the expression of opinion and recalling of facts on their platforms contrary to the stream of propaganda put out by corporate media stenographers, which they denounce as Russian bot activity or the behavior of useful idiots for Vladimir Putin.
Trump’s Treasury is turning up the heat on Iran. On Tuesday it imposed terror sanctions on Valiollah Seif, the governor of the Iranian central bank, and another senior official, Ali Tarzali, who works in the central bank’s international division, according to the Associated Press.
It looks like Ecuador will betray Julian Assange. It is being reported his political asylum may be revoked and the WikiLeaks founder handed over to British and then American authorities.
Speculation follows remarks by Ecuador’s Foreign Minister Maria Fernanda Espinosa. Last Wednesday she said the Ecuadorian government and Britain “have the intention and the interest that this be resolved,” a resolution that very well may result in either a life sentence or an execution in the United States.
You can’t make this stuff up.
During my lifetime, I have experienced a number of big time war criminals—Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger—and George W. Bush is right up there with them.
He oversaw the murder of over two million Iraqis.
It will take a while for Trump and his crew of recycled neocons and neo-neocons—converts of the MAGA variety—to realize their perverse dream of overthrowing the mullahs in Iran.
An outright invasion is out of the question. While an invasion effectively overthrew Saddam Hussein and prepared the way for destroying Iraq, that event was preceded by more than a decade of medieval sanctions that killed over a million people, including 500,000 children. In effect, Iraq was a third world basket case with a broken military long before George W. Bush and his neocon marauders invaded.
