Ron Paul: Neocons Hijack Trump’s Policy

[ Ed. note – Forget about Dracula. People should start dressing up as neocons for Halloween. For sheer bloodthirstiness, you can’t seem to beat them. Jack the Ripper move over.

Above is a trailer for the documentary “A Very Heavy Agenda,” released in 2016. Below is a commentary by Ron Paul, published yesterday. ]

US ‘Journalists’ Decline Trip to Palmyra Arranged by Russian Ministry

[Ed. note – The old folklore idiom about “cutting off your nose to spite your face” comes to mind here. The US has lost face–huge, huge amounts of it–since Russia entered the Syrian conflict last September. And on Easter Sunday the loss of face essentially doubled as Russians played a key role in the retaking of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Palmyra, this by providing crucial air support for Syrian Army and Hezbollah forces on the ground.

Hillary Clinton: The Pro-War Candidate

[Ed. note – Hillary Clinton seems to be largely off her rocker. That’s just my own personal impression of her. But below are two good articles on why Americans should try to avoid a Clinton presidency like the plague if at all possible. One of the articles deals with the role she played in the destruction of Libya, the other with the support she is now picking up from neocons like Robert Kagan and Max Boot.  In addition, Clinton has also compared Russian President Putin to Hitler, and as Paul Craig Roberts  commented, “I don’t’ think there is any candidate that we can end up with as president that would be more likely to go to war with Russia than Hillary.”

Neocons, R2Pers and Hypocrisy

Liberal interventionist and R2p campaigner Samantha Power screams at Russian UN ambassador Vitaly Churkin

Exclusive: R2Pers say America has a “responsibility to protect” endangered people around the world, but this R2P moral imperative is selective, often indistinguishable from neocons tolerating some slaughters and choosing to wage war against certain enemies — just dressed up in liberal rhetoric, reports Robert Parry.

By Robert Parry

Sometimes I’m challenged over my linking belligerent neoconservatives with “liberal interventionists” who justify U.S. military invasions under the “humanitarian” banner of “responsibility to protect” – or R2P – meaning to intervene in war-torn countries to stop the killing of civilians, like the 1994 slaughter in Rwanda.

And, most people would agree that there are extraordinary situations in which the timely arrival of an external military force might prevent genocide or other atrocities, which was one of the intended functions of the United Nations. But my overall impression of R2Pers is that many are careerist hypocrites who voice selective outrage that provides cover for the U.S. and its allies to do pretty much whatever they wish.

‘I was severely tested by the plots of the Jews’

“I was severely tested by the plots of the Jews”–words of the Apostle Paul

Was the Apostle expressing something that millions–perhaps even billions–of people nowadays could easily relate to?

From Venezuela to Ukraine, from Iran to Occupied Palestine, from Syria to Russia, from Argentina to New Zealand—and certainly here in the US—there are, I suspect, quite a few people nowadays finding themselves “severely tested by the plots of the Jews.”
