A powerful neocon cell is calling U.S. foreign policy shots in the Trump White House. Neocon describes those who put the interests of Israel ahead of those of the United States.

Since Hugo Chavez’s ascension to power in 1999, four US administrations sought regime change.

By Abbas J. Ali
The Trump administration, despite its claim of non-intervention in peaceful efforts to solve global issues, has, instead, escalated its military involvement in the Middle East. The administration’s actions may seem illogical, but a closer look at those in power evidences that the elite in Washington are infatuated with projecting power and that religious zealotry is the driving force behind their activities.

There's actually trillions that could be used to fix our roads and schools. The wealthy just don't want you to know where it is.

If you find yourself traveling this summer, take a closer look at America’s deteriorating infrastructure—our crumbling roads, sidewalks, public parks, and train and bus stations.

All over America, I’ve seen posters warning against drug addictions. In Cheyenne, it’s “METHAMPHETAMINE / Don’t live this tragic story.” A few blocks away, I stepped over used needles on the sidewalk. In Buffalo, it’s an image of a beer bottle and a pill bottle, with “HEROIN addiction starts here . . .” Appended to it was a homemade sign, “SHOOT YOUR LOCAL HEROIN DEALER.” Also in Buffalo, it’s a photo of a seemingly dead man on the floor, with “Learn how to recognize OPIOID OVERDOSE and SAVE A LIFE.” In Cleveland, it’s a tagged toe in a morgue, with “DEATH BY HEROIN OVERDOSE IN CUYAHOGA COUNTY HAS QUADRUPLED,” and this was in 2014, before the prevalence of fentanyl.

The most striking fact about the United States of America is not its supposed founding principles—more often lauded than observed—but how often “the greatest country on earth” has waged war.

By Paul Craig Roberts
For sixteen years the US has been at war in the Middle East and North Africa, running up trillions of dollars in expenses, committing untold war crimes, and sending millions of war refugees to burden Europe, while simultaneously claiming that Washington cannot afford its Social Security and Medicare obligations or to fund a national health service like every civilized country has.

U.S. strongman Donald Trump in a nepotistic fashion has granted his son-in-law Jared Kushner special diplomatic envoy portfolios to deal with the Middle East, China, Canada, and Mexico. Kushner, who is 36 and has no international experience, except for acting as a virtual embedded agent for Israel and Binyamin Netanyahu in the United States, recently warned Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to understand his place after the normally soft-spoken Tillerson blew up at a White House meeting with chief of staff Reince Priebus, Kushner, and their aides.

On Sunday morning Trump seemed to promote violence against CNN.

According to Axios, Trump appears heading toward imposing tariffs of around 20% on steel and other imports.

When I was a young boy, I learned that not all animals are soft and cuddly. Some killed and were dangerous . . . they were called predators.

Russia has long been the chief seller of energy—mainly gas and oil—in the world’s largest energy-market: the EU, or Europe. This means that U.S.-based energy companies, such as Exxon and Halliburton, aren’t the ones who dominate in supplying oil, gas, pipelines, and other energy-supplying needs, to the consumers and businesses in the world’s largest energy-market: Europe.

Even before its recent “redesign,” which was claimed to provide an “uncluttered” look, Google News was one of the worst news aggregator sites on the Internet. Many longtime Google News users have complained about the site’s quality and dubious “news” content. Google has offered no reasonable explanations for its poor business decisions that have resulted in Google News being a repository for misleading news links. Keeping in mind that Google received its initial seed investment from the CIA’s IN-Q-IT, now known as IN-Q-TEL, the agency’s venture capital firm in the Silicon Valley, the CIA may be playing some sort of massive social network experiment on Google News users.

Media scoundrels abhor journalism the way it should be—especially on domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most, notably on virtually everyting related to imperial wars, Russia and Trump.

By John W. Whitehead
We have arrived, way ahead of schedule, into the dystopian future dreamed up by such science fiction writers as George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Margaret Atwood and Philip K. Dick.

By Nicolas J S Davies
The most encouraging trend in the otherwise bleak landscape of Western politics is the success of the “new kind of politics” unveiled by Bernie Sanders in the U.S., Jeremy Corbyn in the U.K., and parallel movements, parties and candidates in other countries.

By Peter Certo
One of the few things I recall fondly about the Trump campaign—a short list, I’ll admit—was the candidate’s apparent glee in ridiculing the war-mongering of his rivals and predecessors.

By Stephen Lendman
Trump’s belligerent unpredictability could embroil East Asia in devastating conflict.

By Graham Peebles
In cities and towns from New Delhi to New York the socio-political policies that led to the Grenfell Tower disaster in west London are being repeated; redevelopment and gentrification, the influx of corporate money and the expelling of the poor, including families that have lived in an area for generations.

GOP leaders want to protect your "freedom" to be poor, powerless, sick, and uninsured.
By Jim Hightower
I think of freedom in positive, aspirational terms—as in FDR’s “Four freedoms,” or in the uplifting songs of freedom sung by oppressed people everywhere.

The United States is a schizophrenic asylum of extreme paradoxes: While its internal politics reverberates with fake news-mediated recriminations, Americans yet find merit in the same disinformation machinery that facilitates false flags abroad.

After the in-your-face Fourth of July “gift” that North Korea delivered to President Trump in the form of an intercontinental ballistic missile test, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see President Trump and the Pentagon retaliate by bombing North Korea.

No matter how hard White House officials try, they cannot construct a coherent ‘Trump doctrine’ that would make sense amid the chaos that has afflicted US foreign policy in recent months.

Less than six months into his presidency, it's clear that our chief executive is unfit for office.
By Michael Winship
A tune was running through my head all this past Fourth of July weekend, and it wasn’t “I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy.” No, the earworm that afflicted me was the opening number from the 1980 musical Barnum, a Broadway extravaganza that glorified the master showman and consummate humbug P.T. Barnum, born July 5, 1810.

As Republicans in Congress move to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Democrats are moving toward Medicare for All—a single-payer plan that builds on Medicare and would cover everyone at far lower cost.
