Douglas Valentine’s life’s work has been to expose and explain the CIA’s role in many key aspects of American society, and how they’re behind most of the atrocities, subversion and war since WWII, all over the world. I doubt that any other writer has given the details, or written with the force and courage that he has. He’s told us how America really functions, and what is behind much of its success in business, especially overseas. He’s described how the CIA infiltrates and is protected by the media and all the branches of the government, and how they can create chaos and control political messages, here and abroad.

A toxic combination of alt-right Breitbart writers and George W. Bush neocons are consolidating their control over the Trump administration as allegations concerning the president and his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, buffet the White House.

During a White House press conference with Netanyahu, Trump turned truth on its head, calling Israel “a symbol to the world of resilience in the face of oppression.”

Congressional Republicans, we watched you at the White House Thursday. Just before Donald Trump’s rambling, manic, often snarky press conference—delivered more in the manner of a churlish insult comic than leader of the free world—the president met with a group of you, a self-titled “Trump caucus” of early supporters.

Just before the French Revolution, remember Marie Antoinette’s famous line, when appraised of the plight of the masses? When told that they did not have enough bread to eat she retorted ” Let them eat cake!” Well, in this 21st Century Amerikan Empire, when dead end box store and service jobs are the norm for many of our fellow citizens, they will always have their electronic gadgets to play with.

Oxford Dictionaries call rogue states “nations or states regarded as breaking international law and posing a threat to the security of other nations.”

When Donald Trump gave a speech last Friday at Boeing’s factory in North Charleston, South Carolina—unveiling Boeing’s new 787 “Dreamliner”—he congratulated Boeing for building the plane “right here” in South Carolina.

No wonder the Israeli Prime Minister looked like his beaming smile had been glued on throughout his recent visit to Washington! That nuisance of a president with a Muslim name was safely out of the way and in his place was a self-ascribed lover of the Jewish state who’s wagged his finger telling Palestinians to stop hating their occupiers/oppressors. Heavenly music to Benjamin Netanyahu’s ears!

I predict wild success for the Trump administration, at least in its ability to enrich itself. Throughout the campaign it was an open question how rich Trump was. He has, after all, used the bankruptcy rules to his advantage and has failed to pay workers amounts that seem like small change for so-called billionaires. But the question will be open no longer, if all goes as it has been going, Trump will share his new riches with members of his family and administration.

Twists and turns of the Michael Flynn resignation

With Donald Trump, nothing is as it seems.

By Ben Tanosborn
US media gave us Trump . . . but it seems unlikely that same media will take him away. It’s beginning to look as too formidable a task, unless there is a quick transformation of the mutualism that exists between the Republican congressional majority and the Emperor in the White House wearing no clothes while narcissistically touting sartorial acumen.

WMR has learned from informed sources in the nation’s capital that the Department of Homeland Security has, on the orders of the Trump White House, reactivated the Central Intelligence Agency’s old extraordinary rendition airline fleet to conduct expedited removal from the United States of undocumented immigrants. During the George W. Bush administration, a network of CIA front companies that managed a fleet of aircraft conducted kidnapping and torture operations known as “extraordinary rendition.” The targets of these operations were alleged terrorists. A number of innocent people were caught up in the CIA’s dragnet.

Russia is stereotypically portrayed in the West as the world’s leading bad guy.

Plans put forth by House Speaker Paul Ryan and HHS Secretary Tom Price are 'unlikely' to fulfill President Donald Trump's campaign promises—'but single payer could'

The term false-flag describes covert operations that are designed to deceive in such a way that activities appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them. The goal is to both enrage the people as well as to generate fear.

Trump’s first month in office proved nothing he said campaigning holds water. All politicians lie, saying whatever it takes to get elected, doing whatever they please once in office.

ZeroHedge’s “Tyler Durden” headlined on February 21, “Bannon Breaks With Pence, Delivers Warning To Europe” and noted that before U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis reassured European leaders this past weekend that the U.S. is as anti-Russian now as it was under Barack Obama, U.S. President Donald Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, had told European leaders “that he viewed the EU as a flawed construct and favoured conducting relations with Europe on a bilateral basis”—and that this fact supposedly raises a question regarding the Trump administration, of “which axis is dominant: that of Trump/Bannon/Miller or Pence/Mattis/Haley.” However, there is actually no such conflict: the Trump Administration, ever since at least February 14’s White House press conference stating it firmly as President Trump’s policy, is and will remain anti-Russian.

Every day Donald Trump exemplifies the contradictions of this era. He may make a statement that the left can agree with, but not because of shared political beliefs or motives. That is the case with his latest twitter statement regarding the media. “The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!”

By Jack Balkwill
On a miserable day in 1966, I was being shot at from several directions and jumped into a ditch for cover. In seconds the field in front of me was riddled with bullets, as American soldiers returned fire on Vietnamese rebels determined to eliminate their sworn enemies, foreign invaders bent on returning colonialism under a new guise.

It is well known that the United States is infamous for engineering coups against democratically elected governments worldwide. Voters’ preferences are considered beside the point. Iran and Mosaddegh in 1953, Arbenz in Guatemala in 1954, Indonesia and Sukarno in 1965–7, Allende in Chile in 1973, to name a few from the relatively distant past. Recently the Obama administration worked their handiwork in Honduras and Ukraine. It would not be hyperbolic to say that overthrowing democratic governments is as American as apple pie. It’s our “democratic” tradition—like waging war.

Some members of the 9/11 Truth movement may be sorely disappointed now that a major bête noire of the events of September 11, 2001, is one of four finalists to build the new FBI building and associated campus. The current FBI building on Pennsylvania Avenue in downtown Washington is no longer suitable for the bureau due to a host of problems, including concrete falling from its facade and an often-times failing and putrid-smelling sewage system.

The president of the United States can hardly be taken seriously, saying much but doing little. His words, often offensive, carry no substance, and it is impossible to summarize his complex political outlook about important issues.

Like the meanest of loan sharks, Brussels has been squeezing the life out of the Greek people for far too long. Whereas non-EU member Turkey is courted with billions of euros due to the usefulness of its airbase to NATO and its efforts to stem the flood of refugees heading to Europe, democracy’s birthplace is treated like an unwelcome poor relation advised to tighten its belt before receiving scraps off the family table.
