Rigged Elections are an American Tradition

By Paul Craig Roberts

Do Americans have a memory? I sometimes wonder.

It is an obvious fact that the oligarchic One Percent have anointed Hillary, despite her myriad problems to be President of the US. There are reports that her staff are already moving into their White House offices. This much confidence before the vote does suggest that the skids have been greased.

Enough Lies to Fill the Red Sea?


The USS Mason–now fired upon three times in the past week, according to reports.

Shades of the Gulf of Tonkin? The USS Mason–purportedly fired upon 3 times in a week now

[ Ed. note – The USS Mason is a US Navy destroyer which has been deployed in the Red Sea off the coast of Yemen. The ship has reportedly been fired upon three times in the past week–once on Sunday a week ago, again on Wednesday, and most recently, according to an article published today at RT, on Saturday. The presumed missiles launched at the ship are claimed to have been fired from Houthi-controlled territory in Yemen. The Houthis have denied it. The Houthis are often referred to as “the Iran-backed Houthis” in mainstream media reports, so naturally the implication is that the Iranians are behind it as well.

Do Hypocrites Know No Shame?

After the US has started wars under false pretexts, bombed wedding parties, and operated torture centers, Secretary of State John Kerry has finally called for a war crimes investigation–of Russia.

Secretary of State John Kerry gets my nomination for “hypocrite of the month” for October. I realize I’m going out on a limb here since the month isn’t even half over, but I’m pretty confident Kerry’s performance today will be difficult, if not impossible, for any  Washington politician to surpass.

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — In October 2015 began what has been in turn called a wave of unrest, a Palestinian upheaval, or even the “Jerusalem Intifada.” Whatever the name, the past year has seen an intensification of deadly violence in the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel.

Christians, the most persecuted by NATO-terrorist gangs in Syria, dies for their faith every 5 minutes: “Syria is over 6000 years old – its people will always restore what our enemies destroy” [Video Eng Subt]

the real Syrian Free Press

“Syria is over 6000 years old,
its people will always restore what our enemies destroy”

This short documentary film Expulsion (Izgnanie), made for the Russian television channel Rossiia, focuses on the plight of Christians in war-torn Syria. This subject is worthy of greater attention than it has received in the mainstream Western media, hence our effort to subtitle this project.

After all, Christians are one the most persecuted groups in the world. Their depopulation is a general trend in the entire Middle East and North African region (MENA), not just in Syria.

This documentary states that, for instance, half of Palestine’s population was once Christian, but now only 5% remain. In Iraq, of the million and a half Christians prior to the U.S. invasion, only 10% are there today. In 2013, OSCE estimated that a Christian dies for his faith every 5 minutes.


Now, with the escalation of the war and…

Farting in Public? Bruce Springsteen Calls Donald Trump ‘a Moron’

 photo bspr_zpscg5kecxu.jpgEntertainers endorsing political candidates–it’s something of a time-honored tradition in America. I’m not sure how many people make up their minds about who to vote for based upon what some singer or movie star might have to say about it all, but likely there are those who do.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Bruce Springsteen weighed in on the 2016 presidential race, stating that in his opinion Donald Trump is “a moron.”

This would be the same Bruce Springsteen who endorsed Obama for president–both in 2008 and again in 2012–which seems kind of moronic in itself now in retrospect.
