The way the US acts in the world should be referred to as Crime, Inc. It's become the most sinister entity on earth. Most sinister because what it does is under the guise of bringing freedom & democracy to others using the Constitution & the rule of law as a fig leaf cover but betrays w/ impunity. From illegal wars, false flag ops, coups, assassinations, torture. The US has "earned" the ignominy it has wrought on the world.

Little "things" we encounter each day
How about those little annoyances we encounter each day. People talking on cell phones loudly in public, being tailgated while driving, getting ticketed from an unknown surveillance camera, TV's on everywhere, making a call and getting the answering machine w/the innocuous "Our menu has changed" rather than a real person answering the phone, particularly if it's a doctor's office. Have these people been outsourced as well?

Maintaining instability all over the world, the ultimate US subterfuge
Since the end of WWII, the US has engaged directly in multiple hot wars, a 45 yr. cold war w/ the USSR, clandestinely in numerous countries using CIA trained & armed proxies, initiated coups, assassinations, drone strikes in the war on terror; quite the chilling resume. The point being all this militarist mayhem & misadventures against "enemies" belie the ultimate aim & outcome of US policy, maintain instability in the world.

Sanctions lifted on Iran, diplomacy worked
The US & the EU finally lifted economic sanctions on Iran releasing some $100 billion of its assets. Int'l inspectors confirmed Iran's compliance w/ the nuclear deal signed last July. In reality the sanctions were bogus to begin w/. Iran wasn't developing a nuclear weapons program that was confirmed by all 17 US intel agencies in 2008 that Iran ceased all such activities in 2003. But this showed diplomacy w/ Iran could work.

Is the US beholden to the Saudi regime for its financial and economic survival?
There's been unexpected "fallout" of Saudi Arabia executing Saudi Shiite cleric al-Nims by the NY Times & the Wash. Post both calling it "dangerous sectarian policies & reckless regime, barbarity & actions that blatantly fan sectarian hatreds". But US policy is deeply entwined w/ Saudi Arabia. According to Finian Cunningham, "In short, the US is beholden to the Saudi regime for its financial & economic survival".
Monday, January 4, 2016 What to make of Saudi Arabia cutting all diplomatic ties with Iran? An escalation, but no game changer
What to make of Saudi Arabia cutting all diplomatic ties w/Iran? This after Iranian's sacked the Saudi embassy in Tehran in reaction to the Saudi regime executing a Shiite sheikh along w/46 others. The countries oppose each other over Yemen & opposite sides in the Syrian conflict. Though the executions & storming of the Saudi embassy is an escalation it's no game changer, not while the Saudi's remain a staunch ally of the US.

Mistrial declared in Baltimore
A mistrial was declared yesterday in Baltimore for one of the police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody. Protests occurred immediately after the verdict was announced. One protester put it, "We want justice & we're just not going to get it". One thing seems clear w/this mistrial verdict of a black man dying while in police custody; the perception racial injustice is alive & well in America.
Wednesday, December 16, 2015 A possible light at the end of the tunnel in Syria?
There appears a possible light @ the end of the tunnel in Syria, this after a 3 1/2 hr meeting in Moscow yesterday between Sec'y of St. Kerry & Russian Pres. Putin. After the meeting it was announced an int'l conference will be held in NY on Friday. Afterward Kerry made clear the Assad must go mantra was a non starting position & the US stands ready to work w/ Russia. This could be the diplomatic opening to ending the crisis.

How did we the people become insouciant "sheeple"?
How did we the people become "insouciant sheeple"? Firstly ending the military draft in 1973 after we left Viet Nam. At the hgt. of the war in 67 to 73, resistance, defiance, protests, demonstrations were the order of the day on college campuses. No longer. Ending the draft of college age men & women, that were @ the heart of the Vietnam war resistance, meant after '73 they have no personal stake in resisting our wars.

Syria upping the ante reportedly ready to deploy S-300 surface to air missiles to defend its air space
It's been reported Syria is ready to deploy the S-300 air defense system, a surface to air missile supplied by Russia giving Syria control of its territory w/ the capability to shoot down any intrusive warplane or missile w/out warning. That sure ups the ante. But Syria is a sovereign state & under int'l law it's been attacked illegally. Does it not have the right to further defend against any hostile force attacking it?

"Things" looking ominous in Syria
Things look ominous in Syria. All the world's antagonists are engaged making it so ominous. Russian Pres. Putin was recently described as a paper tiger for not retaliating over Turkey downing a Russian jet fighter in Syria. It was a provocation. Putin refused to take the bait so now he's a paper tiger? Putin's actions in Syria have been defensive & legal under int'l law. But make no mistake Turkey's action won't go unpunished.

We need to take our country back
We need to take our country back. It's been systematically hijacked, usurped by the massive financial, military/industrial & energy behemoths that completely controls the political process, writes the laws, regulations, oversight & enforcement to the benefit of those interests. They underwrite the campaigns of politicos in a system of legalized bribery. Only w/ meaningful campaign finance reform can this corruption be ended.

"Things" heating up over Turkey's downing Russian jet fighter in Syria
"Things" are heating up over Turkey's downing a Russian jet fighter last Tuesday in Syria. One "thing" seems clear, the attack was a pre-planned attack carried out by Turkey. Another "thing" it's hard to imagine Turkey acted w/out US foreknowledge. One other "thing" seems certain; Russia will take direct action against Turkey. Pres. Putin won't announce his action beforehand but Turkey's provocation won't go unpunished.

Killing all alleged suspects in Paris attacks, a tell tale sign "official" narrative is suspect
It's been a week since the terrorist attacks in Paris. The official narrative remains, it was European, Islamic jihadists. Now all dead including the alleged mastermind Abdelhamid Abaasoud killed in a raid Wed. morning north of Paris. One would think for a thorough investigation of the crime attempts to capture alleged suspects would be preferable. Killing them all is a tell tale sign the official narrative is itself suspect.
Tuesday, November 17, 2015 Madness reigns in the West caused by its own doing
In response to Friday's terrorist attacks in Paris French Pres. Hollande yesterday said , "France is @ war". He's sent French planes to bomb IS HQ in Raqqa, Syria & dispatched its aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle to sail into the Persian Gulf. What he didn't do is request NATO to send ground forces to invade Syria risking the unthinkable pitting the US against Russia. Madness reigns in the West caused by its own doing.

Is it really the "Call of Duty"?
Today on a DC Metro train there was a 4'x6' poster proclaiming something called a "Call of Duty" championship. A video game for "Mature 17+, Blood & Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Drugs". It's about torture, dismemberment, brutality is everywhere. So this what it may be coming down to: no military draft to contend w/ young people are getting enticed w/video games simulating real war.

Veterans Day, no longer the Armistice Day admonition there be no more war
Some things come to mind this Veterans Day. It was first commemorated as Armistice Day in 1918 @ the signing of armistice w/ Germany ending WWI. A day to herald peace after the "war to end all wars", meant to honor the dead but also the admonition there be no more war. W/ WWII and Korea Armistice Day didn't fit any longer & changed to Veterans day in 1954. Now it's a day to extol our military even as we fight endless war.

America the (not so) beautiful
It's becoming clearer by the day, the US is the most dangerous political entity in the world today. It is the most insidious, hiding behind the veneer of democracy, the Constitution & the rule of law trumpeting those virtues while disregarding them w/impunity. Incredibly most in America have bought the charade still spouting, "We're the greatest". Meanwhile the rest of the world sees us as the greatest threat to world peace.
Monday, November 2, 2015 Obama sends 50 Special Ops troops to Syria, "advisers" nothing more than "human shields"
President Obama announced Friday he is sending 50 special ops troops to Syria to "advise" local forces fighting ISIS. Independent writer, Finian Cunningham put it succinctly, "US special ops are being used as 'human shields' to curb Russian airstrikes against anti-gov't mercenaries...to forestall Russian successes in wiping out Washington's regime change assets in Syria." Cunningham's analysis is on the mark.

A Geo-political Realignment in the World?
There may have begun a Geo-political realignment in the world when Russian Pres. Putin boldly sent his air force into Syria 4 weeks ago w/ his stated intent to destroy the Islamic state & al Qaeda terrorists in Syria. It's absolutely significant forcing the US to reconcile & come to terms it can't challenge the Russian's in the air in Syria w/out an incident that could lead to the unthinkable; war between two nuclear states.

Putin's actions in Syria, Do you really want to mess with us?
Vladimir Putin's move into Syria "startled" the US w/ him saying w/ his actions-no words necessary-"Don't mess w/ us" or better, "Do you really want to mess w/us?" With his brilliantly conceived military moves in Syria he's changed the equation forcing reality onto the US that its notions of regime change is unacceptable & will be countered.

Putin's gamble succeeding in Syria?
It's been two weeks since Russian Pres. Putin seized the initiative in Syria sending in his jet fighters flying sorties & attacking terrorist enclaves in the war torn country. In response nothing but bloviating from US officials. "There will be consequences for Russia";"Obama should retaliate". Could it be Obama realizes the futility of his campaign to fight IS & Putin's move could begin to end the terrorist threat in Syria?

Shifting the blame
As if the US atrocity of bombing a Doctors w/out Borders hospital in Afghanistan wasn't so horrible it gets compounded by responses from US officials. "The hospital may have been collateral damage; Afghan forces requested the strike"-as if US advisers weren't in on calling the strike. This was an AC-130 attack gunship, that hit the hospital & this after the hospital gave GPS coordinates days before so they wouldn't get hit.

Putin to the rescue again, Part II
The geopolitical center of attention in the world today is Syria particularly w/ Russian Pres. Putin's actions on Syria changing the equation. He recently bolstered Syrian Pres. Assad's military sending planes &other armaments to Assad's beleaguered forces & coordinating military intel w/ Syria, Iraq, Iranian ground forces. Putin's actions jolted the White House but his actions seem intended to turn the tide against IS.

Putin to the rescue again
Russia began sharing military intelligence w/ Syria, Iran & Iraq in the fight against ISIS in Syria. This after Russia recently increased its military aid to Syrian President Assad's beleaguered forces. According to the NY Times the US was left "scrambling" & "jolted the White House". So what. Russia's Pres. Putin doesn't need to get clearance from the US hegemon in order to provide coordination to his allies fighting ISIS.
Monday, September 21, 2015 Twisting the Facts
Friday's headline in the NY Times read, "US Begins Military talks w/ Russia on Syria". Reporter Michael Gordon put it, "the Obama administration reached out to Moscow" giving the distinct impression the White House initiated the idea when in fact it was Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov who made the proposal to US Sec'y of State John Kerry over the phone on Tuesday. It's a twisting of the facts making it appear it was a US idea.
Tuesday, September 15, 2015 So what to make of the Jeremy Corbyn phenomenon across the "pond"?
So what to make of the "phenomenon" across the "pond" where the British Labour Party elected Jeremy Corbyn as its new leader? It was never believed he had a chance to win. Nonetheless party members voted for Corbyn w/ almost 60% of the vote. After his victory he put it this way, "The people of Britain are fed up w/ injustice & inequality". No longer a "backbencher" in the House of Commons he should be a force to contend w/.

The current domestic "tranquility", the calm before the storm?
Chris Hedges writes, "The Real Enemy Is Within", that "Militarists & war profiteers are our greatest enemy...there will be no genuine democratic, social, economic or political reform until we destroy our permanent war machine". The question; is how the destruction of our permanent war machine is to be done? That's the conundrum. It isn't that people don't know the evils Hedges speaks of. Many do; it's how to destroy it.

Maintaining the veneer of a democracy
The West is @ a crisis crossroad. First w/ colonialism & exploitation now w/ coups, assassinations, false flag events, wars, occupations, torture, the crisis is exacerbated. Syria, Ukraine, the refugee crisis in Europe, a direct result of war in Africa & the Middle East. And in America overseeing these horrors sits the president, the "unitary executive", the dictator in charge, where the "veneer" of democracy is maintained.

Ensconced in a cocoon, completely unaffected and oblivious
Chris Hedges article,The Great Unraveling focuses on the ravages of neo-liberalism & global capitalism in the US & the world, the vast inequality, wage stagflation, chronic poverty, factories closed, prisons overflowing are some of the depredations. What is stunning & disconcerting w/ the world crumbling are people w/ cell phones in hand, madly texting away seemingly ensconced in a cocoon, completely oblivious & unaffected.
Thursday, August 27, 2015 The next contender in the presidential sweepstakes?
Harvard Law professor Lawrence Lessig will decide to make a presidential bid for the Democratic nomination if he receives $1million in donations by Labor Day. He says he'd resign one day after being elected after enacting a single bill which he calls the Citizen Equality Act w/3 parts: equal right to vote, equal representation & citizen funded elections. It's quirky & hard to imagine people buying it even if they agree w/ him.

Have we reached the point of no return?
Is humanity's plight possible extinction thru abrupt climate change or that other potential calamity nuclear war? And all w/ the haunting irony it was all avoidable. War is not instinctive, hereditary in the DNA, something we're born w/ & can't be avoided. As to the environmental calamity have we reached the point of no return & our eventual extinction by not acting when the consequences of the climate crisis became known?

Is there any doubt we are complicit in the wrongful path our country has taken?
Is there any doubt we are complicit in the wrongful path our country has taken? Are we not indifferent to our wars, occupations, torture, indefinite detention, a $trillion in defense spending, a financial industry run amok whose machinations created the 2008 great recession, an electoral system completely taken over by billionaires that has Repubs & Dems beholden to them. So are we complicit? Right up to our eyeballs.

Is Rebellion Possible in this Country?
Is rebellion possible in this country? Certainly there have been protests by African Americans against police who often get exonerated after committing murders, growing resistance to fracking operations, the Keystone XL pipeline, labeling of GMO foods, environmental protests et al. Then there was the great recession of 2008 created by the malevolence of the financial industry. Rebellion was justified; it didn't happen.

A Day of Reckoning is Coming
A day of reckoning is coming. The signs are everywhere. Whether it's a horrific economic dislocation similar to the '30's depression affecting most of the people, a new world war or an environmental catastrophe, a reckoning is coming. Yet these are ALL man-made phenomena & thus avoidable.The solutions are known, but not taken. It all depends whether we take the appropriate actions necessary to prevent the calamity.

Misanthropes in High Places
A mad neo-con led deviancy has captured "official" Washington driving US militarism since the cold war ended. American acquiescence permits Washington do anything it wants, wars, torture, drone strikes. Though not a classical conspiracy there is a collusion of the military, defense contractors & politicos. Although not a classical conspiracy they're like minded misanthropes who've usurped the reins of power in this country.
Tuesday, July 14, 2015 A deal with Iran finally reached
This morning the P5+1 reached a deal w/ Iran over its nuclear program along w/ lifting oil & economic sanctions on that country. The next rigmarole will have Congress taking 60 days to review the deal then vote on it. If as expected they reject the deal Obama has said he'd veto the legislation then Congress would need a 2/3 super majority to overturn the veto. That's unlikely to happen.

The Greek People, "We have nothing to lose", from Tsipras betrayal
The Greek people voted 61 to 39 rejecting austerity by the EU, ECB & IMF. PM Tsipras had urged them to do so. On Friday he betrayed the peoples vote, put forth a new austerity package of reduced pensions, higher taxes & reduced gov't spending which the Greek parliament app'd. The new austerity package was what the troika had been demanding & they app'd it this morning. Only the Greek people had nothing to lose. Not so Tsipras.

The Greek Referendum Vote, a Watershed Event Against Austerity Placed on the Backs of the People
With the Greek people voting 61 to 39 against harsh austerity measures keeping them in perpetual debt slavery they are saying they won't accept debt relief that keeps them in endless debt peonage. The people have spoken; harsh austerity measures placed on the backs of people is unacceptable, saying to the EU, ECB and the IMF, "We have nothing to lose" by openly rejecting them.

Putin, Always One Step Ahead of the US
Since the US inspired coup in Kiev in Feb.2014 it's been nonstop bashing of Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin in the west. The purpose, get Putin to take the bait & invade Ukraine. Only Putin isn't biting. He wants no wider war in Ukraine. He's interested in economic development w/ China & lately working behind the scene to develop a Gazprom Nord Stream gas pipeline from Russia under the Baltic Sea directly into Germany.

Removing the Confederate Flag would be the proper gesture but it's still nothing more than that
The confederate flag could be removed in front of the state house bldg in Columbia, S.C. Gov. Haley called on the state assembly to consider removing it. That requires a 2/3 vote in each house & it's unclear whether the votes are there. Now in the aftermath of the slaughter of 9 @ the Emanuel AME church last week the gov is pushing for its removal. Though removing the flag is a proper gesture it's still nothing more than that.

The Mirage of the USA Freedom Act Protecting American's 4th Amendment Constitutional Rights
President Obama just signed into law the USA Freedom Act essentially prohibiting the NSA from bulk collection of phone records whose storage now shifts to the phone companies. But it's just tweaking the NSA's more blatant excesses giving the "appearance" it is being brought under control by our politicos & making it "appear" they're doing something to protect American's 4th amendment constitutional rights. It's all a mirage.

China issued a 9,000 word white paper last week revealing a military strategy of active defense while pledging close int'l cooperation & not attacking unless we are attacked. This comes as the US is dispatching military planes & ships w/in 18 kilometers of the artificial islands China built in the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. The situation is volatile. A US provocation could happen forcing China to defend itself.

Memorial Day, celebrating America's orgy of war
America's celebratory orgy of war otherwise known as Memorial day has come & gone. Of course they're only "good" wars fought by the indispensable country. Funny though it's not looked @ in the same way by others who see us mostly as aggressors. Keeping the world unstable is the modus operandi of the US all done to perpetuate & preserve the $trillion in defense spending each yr that goes to the benefit of the rich & powerful.

What to make of Kerry meeting with Putin in Sochi, Russia?
There may have been a positive development this past week between the US & Russia w/ Sec'y of State Kerry traveling to Sochi, Russia & meeting w/ Pres. Putin. A telling remark by Kerry, "The Minsk 2 agreement was the only way forward & that he would strongly caution Poroshenko against the idea of renewing military operations" in Ukraine. Could this be the beginning of an era of cooperation dampening new cold war fervor?

When people come to a point where they have nothing to lose, they will lash out at their oppressor
It becomes apparent when people come to a point where they have nothing to lose they will lash out, become violent & destructive toward their oppressor or anything they associate w/ that oppressor. This occurred in the unrest in Baltimore. The slogan by protesters in the streets, "No justice, no peace" needs to be heeded by all authorities lest there be a summer of violence. This is a national crisis, not just a local one.
Tuesday, April 28, 2015 Baltimore violence, "I don't agree with what's happening, but I can understand it"
Baltimore turned violent yesterday after the funeral of Freddie Gray who died in police custody last week. That incident sparked protests thru-out the week then escalated w/ 100's of black HS age students clashing w/ police, rock throwing, police cars set afire, rampaging, looting then setting many fires last nite. It's a blind lashing out for the abuses they suffer @ the hands of police that began last summer in Ferguson, MO.
Friday, April 24, 2015 Obama's apology, genuine? Plus officials warped, cavalier response to America's Drone Wars
Yesterday Pres. Obama gave a "command performance" apologizing for the deaths of an American & an Italian killed by a CIA drone strike in Pakistan in January. Genuine? Why did it take 4 months? We're told & expected to believe he knew nothing until last week. Why did it take a week to go before the TV cameras? Why not go the day or night he heard about it? Did he need to "prep" for a week to make it appear he was "distraught"?

Russia, Full Speed Ahead to Deter Pentagon's Nuclear 1st Strike Capability
So... is there reason for optimism in the world to avoid a nuclear conflagration albeit NOT a nuclear war by accident? While the US is developing a "Full spectrum dominance" capability Russia is fast developing an S-500 ABM system that according to reporter Pepe Escobar can intercept ANY American missile system. He puts it operational in 2017. Could this be the key to prevent the Pentagon contemplating a nuclear 1st strike?

A Nuclear Deal with Iran was probably scuttled yesterday
A final nuclear deal w/ Iran was probably scuttled yesterday as Senate Repubs & some Dems forced Obama to relent giving Congress an unprecedented role voting on an int'l diplomatic accord BEFORE it is reached. Iran demands all sanctions be lifted the day a deal is signed, a position pretty definitive & non negotiable. Washington seems oblivious all too ready to issue its own ultimatums well before the June 30 deadline.
Monday, April 13, 2015 Iran, All Sanctions Lifted on 1st Day of Nuclear Deal, US, Six Months to Lift Sanctions
As to the recent nuclear talks w/ Iran & the P5&1,Iran's president Hassan Rouhani on Thursday put it succinctly, "We will not sign any agreement, unless all economic sanctions are totally lifted on the first day of the implementation of the deal". In response US Energy Sec'y Ernest Moniz, himself in on the talks, gave a "ballpark" figure of 6 months to lift the sanctions. Not exactly how the Iranian pres. put it. Stay tuned.

So how should we "really" refer to these United States of America?
So how should we refer to these United States of America? A banana republic? An oligarchic plutocracy? Both fit quite admirably w/ what we've become. Truth & honesty is what we're indoctrinated w/ yet we're a country imbued w/ dishonesty & lying. From the pronouncements of "official" Washington to our so called "independent" MSM & how it's all dispensed to the people, it's all the same BS.

Failure to Honor "Negotiated" Agreements, an "Official" Washington Specialty
Negotiations w/ Iran over its nuclear program are supposed to be concluded tom'w. It's unlikely to happen. Even if an agreement is reached w/ Obama it probably won't be worth the paper it's written on. Any diplomatic pact w/Iran has to be app'd by a 2/3 vote in the Senate. W/ 47 of these yahoos writing a letter to Iranian leader Ayatollah Kamenei saying they'd reject any deal w/Iran any agreement is likely dead in the water.

Netanyahu on Tuesday, "There will be NO Palestinian State", on Thursday, "It just wasn't possible now"
It never ceases to amaze what will emerge from the dissembling "mouth that roared", the just reelected prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu. After stating unequivocally on the eve of Tuesday's Israeli elections, "There will be no establishment of a Palestinian state" on his watch, two days later he's "clarifying" it w/, "It's just wasn't possible now". The man has no shame.

Netanyahu, No Establishment of a Palestinian State
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu is desperate to retain power. Appealing to the extreme Israeli right before today's elections he uttered publically what no PM in Israel's history ever said publically namely there will be no establishment of a Palestinian state. The truth is out in the open, Israel has never entertained such an idea. And it doesn't matter who "wins" these elections, the Palestinian's will continue to lose.
Tuesday, March 10, 2015 A not so Veiled Threat to Iran
Ah the chutzpah of the Repubs believing they have a mandate after last yrs. elections giving them control of both houses of Congress. The latest ploy is 47 Senate Repubs writing an open letter the Iranian's saying any deal Obama makes w/o legislative approval could be revoked by the next prez w/ "the stroke of a pen". But it's a not so veiled threat to Iran for committing the unforgivable sin of not succumbing to US hegemony.
