Another Big Lie About Ukraine’s War

August 21st, 2015

Eric Zuesse

What follows here, about the current U.S. government's lying, is banned by all major news sites in the United States, and by most ‘alternative news’ sites, such as Common Dreams, Alternet, and Truthout (although some of those alt-news sites do issue watered-down reports from Robert Parry and a few other establishment journalists, about related matters):

Vladimir Kornilov posted to his facebook page on August 15th, a terrific question that’s getting increasing attention on other independent websites:

I wonder about this: When the army of the DNI [commonly called Ukraine’s ‘rebels’] are retired Russian military, the West immediately writes about "Russian aggression". And if retired (believe that retired) military mercenaries from the EU are fighting on the side of the APU [commonly called the Ukrainian government], why do the same media not write about "the aggression of the European Union?"

Two Reports Ignore Obama’s Aggression on Yemen

August 21st, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Obama bears full responsibility for waging US-orchestrated, Saudi-led naked aggression on Yemen - raging nonstop for nearly five months with no end in sight, another horrific war crime on his rap sheet.

UNICEF and Amnesty International (AI) issued new reports omitting what’s most important to explain.

UNICEF titled its report “Yemen: Childhood Under Threat,” saying “nearly 400 children have been killed and over 600 others injured since the violence escalated some four months ago.”It began on March 25, nearly five months ago. Casualty figures reported way undercount reality. Total deaths by Saudi terror bombing, ground fighting, starvation, disease and overall deprivation can only be estimated - likely at least double official reports, maybe far more, along with many thousands injured, some maimed for life.

Donald Trump Makes Ukraine’s Enemies List

August 21st, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

There’s nothing redeeming about a demagogic billionaire con man, self-styled celebrity, ideologically over-the-top like all other Republican and Democrat presidential aspirants - other than his in-your-face bravado shaking up an otherwise dull race for the White House.

No matter who wins in November 2016, business as usual will again triumph. Candidates differ in style alone. On all issues mattering most, they in lockstep - cardboard cutouts of each other.

So why did Trump make Kiev’s enemies list? More on this below. The regime is run by a US-installed gang of criminal misfits - guilty of virtually every crime imaginable, including major civil and human rights abuses, grand theft, bankrupting Ukraine’s economy, and waging war on its own people.

Thousands Demand Netanyahu’s Arrest for War Crimes

August 21st, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

He’s one of thousands of current and earlier Israeli officials guilty of high crimes against peace too horrific to ignore.

Israeli criminality is longstanding - begun well before the Jewish state’s establishment. In 1946, Irgun and Lehi terrorists jointly attacked the King David Hotel - killing scores, injuring many more.

David Ben-Gurion approved the massacre. Menachem Begin led it. Yitzhak Shamir was involved - three future Israeli prime ministers. In April 1948, they committed Deir Yassin mass murder. An eyewitness described the horror as follows:

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Blasts Washington

August 20th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Washington is ruled by power-crazed neocons seeking unchallenged dominion over planet earth, its resources, populations, outer space, and ocean depths with all potential rivals eliminated.

Strategy entails aggressive war without mercy when other methods fail. Russia and China most of all are targeted for regime change - America’s two main rivals.

Both want a world at peace, not devastated by the ravages of war. They know dark US intentions. They’re proudly independent - not about to roll over for Washington, nor should they. Last December, Putin said adversaries “will always try to chain the bear. And once it’s chained, they’ll try to rip out its teeth and claws.” Russia wants cooperative relations with all nations. It’s not about to become a US satellite.

Donald Trump on the Issues

August 20th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

He’s the Republican frontrunner so far - with miles to go before next year’s nominating conventions and November election so nothing this early is settled. Far from it.

Bombast, bravado and arrogance aside, he’s like all other candidates from both parties - pro-war, pro-business, anti-populist, mindless of what matters most to ordinary Americans. Intending dirty business as usual if elected.

The most important issue all aspirants oppose is government of, by and for everyone equitably and fairly - with special concern for society’s most disadvantaged, a vital safety net for people needing it most.

The Two Core Beliefs of the Republican Party

August 19th, 2015

Eric Zuesse

1: One core Republican belief is spread by religious fundamentalists, and it’s a conviction to do war against others by outpopulating them — reproducing more than the other humans do. Part of this is their campaign for fertilized human eggs (the one-celled zygotes of homo sapiens) to become legally declared to be beings who have the same Constitutional protections that their sentient mothers do — beings who have thoughts, emotions, and preferences; pain, pleasure, sorrow, and joy; and thus rights: beings who have life in the more than mere vegetable-biological sense. Actually ignoring the entire issue of consciousness (or soul), essentially ignorant of the spiritual realm, they focus only on the flesh: that fertilized egg is as important to them as the woman herself is. They want all of their own eggs or sperms to become additional fundamentalists; and, if the mother gets hurt in the process, or if the family cannot afford an additional child, or if the couple aren’t fit to be decent parents, or if sex was forced upon the wife, or if there’s a genetic defect that might be passed on to a child, or if there’s misery created in some other way, then that’s just unfortunate, but the cause (Christianity’s version of Islamic jihad — the defeat of other religions, and also of non-religion) must be served, because God (instead of “We, the People”) is sovereign here, and it’s ‘our’ God, and we are ‘his People,’ and we are fighting for Him against the non-believers. Also, and especially: there must be no birth-control, because that would especially reduce the numbers of new members of fundamentalist (or anti-scientific) families. The woman’s mere wishes are far less important than are the needs of God: victory for God’s People. Genesis 1:22 said “Be fruitful and multiply.” Genesis 1:28 said specifically to humans: “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it.” This core Republican belief can be called “forced population.” It’s reproduction as God’s warfare to “subdue” everyone and everything else. “Subdue” everyone and everything else, so as to serve their own particular “God.” Increase the size of God’s Army. Reproduce to the max.
