As Thousands Mourn Netanyahu Escalates Ethnic Cleansing

Was there ethnic hatred at the bottom of the deaths of three innocent Israeli teens recently? A good chance of that.

Is that an excuse for ethnic hatred or politically and militarily empowered acts of mass murder or incarceration, the unleashing of even more of a vendetta program to perpetrate “ethnic cleansing” against an entire Palestinian population? Also a most convenient excuse at the same time to destroy the recent efforts for empowerment and social justice for Palestinians under a hyper-oppressive occupying Israeli governance?

Why Don't Most Americans Seriously Care About ...

1. Why don't most Americans seriously care that the Obama faux-humanitarian war machine continues killing foreign peoples, that he is militarizing, destabilizing and plundering Africa, that he supports the dispossession and oppression of Palestinians, the crippling sanctions against innocent Iranians, etc.?

2. Why don't most Americans seriously care that Obama enabled and still does Al Qaeda/ISIS jihadists in Syria slaughtering and displacing hundreds of thousands of innocent citizens for the sake of the regime change of Assad? Read below the fold...

US Violence & Iraq-Faux-Rescue Redux

So two and a half years ago Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, US puppet, got a little too uppity and refused to make a SOFA (Status of Forces) Agreement with the US so the US could leave 10,000 troops indefinitely deployed in Iraq at “strategic bases”.

Obama’s Foul/Frantic/Failed Attempt to ‘Rendition’ Snowden

First, two important considerations:

From the Oxford Dictionary:

rendition (also extraordinary rendition): The practice of sending a foreign criminal or terrorist suspect covertly to be interrogated in a country with less rigorous regulations for the humane treatment of prisoners.

Over-Fortifying Mayberry!!!

According to Zac Corrigan in “Militarization of police in America” the Pentagon under the Obama administration is equipping -- OVER-EQUIPPING -- US police departments across the country with former overseas military weaponry and vehicles.

The ominous dots aren’t hard to connect for any of us paying the least bit of attention to the dramatic and merciless economic polarization in America along with the escalation of inappropriate and inhumane lethal force by the police. Read below the fold...

Bergdahl, Safer in Captivity than USA?

America can’t seem to forgive Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for following his conscience.

Why? Probably because America -- collectively -- has ignored its own.

All these years of the US government perpetrating gratuitous global bloodbaths.

Bergahl is being scapegoated by a US-punked population that is misdirecting its anger over the unwinnability and colossal stupidity and criminality of the "war on terror" -- a chain of pathetic and brutal military misadventures with massive human, geo-political and economic costs.

Lemming-Votes: Hillary as Next Back-Stabbing Superstar Prez?

A doting Hillary and Bill Clinton gave their big baby girl Chelsea a $3 million wedding in 2010. Chelsea Clinton wore a strapless Vera Wang gown with a beaded waistline. Vera, of course, attended the wedding.

Petty of me to lead with this? I don’t know. Seems like the amount of $3 million for the Chelsea wedding was a rare, accurate disclosure from our mainstream corporate media. Something it was willing to divulge to us low-information but celebrity-worshipping Americans. Read below the fold...

Obama Assists New Kiev Prez with Bloodbath in E. Ukraine

Thomas Gaist and Barry Grey in "The bloodbath in Donetsk":

The Obama administration in Washington and the Merkel government in Berlin both congratulated the newly elected president, billionaire oligarch Petro Poroshenko, even as he was overseeing the bloodbath in the east.

Obama and Merkel signaled their support for the mass killing, portraying it as a means of stabilizing and unifying the country.

Sadism & Racism: America’s Juvenile ‘Justice’ System

David Swanson in “Juvenile Prison: $5 Billion for Child Abuse” writes:

Solitary confinement greatly increases suicide rates, and yet is used as a punishment for the offense of being suicidal. ... it is part of a process that fundamentally destroys our young people, a process which we pretend improves them.

Obama’s Hitlerian Comments @ West Point

In “Obama’s West Point speech: A prescription for unending war” Bill Van Auken exposes the folly of the corporate media in framing Obama’s recent speech as “an embrace of a more multilateral and less militaristic American foreign policy.” Read below the fold...

New Kiev Govt A Fascist Regime Helped by US Death Squad Diplomacy

Why are we, the United States, actively enabling a coup government that is brutally massacring its own people? A government conceived from a violent coup, that we also actively enabled, against an elected president.

Recent US polls indicate that our citizenry does not want our government actively intervening in Ukraine and yet that collective decision has NO IMPACT on our leadership. These poll results come, mind you, in spite of the overwhelming jingoistic, anti-Russian propaganda being whipped up by our -- but not really our -- mainstream corporate media.

E. Ukraine 'Terrorists’ Threaten w/ Voter-Ballot Paper-Cuts?
