Syrian Army Gains Control of Jordanian and Iraq Border Areas

June 11th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

On Friday, Syria’s military, along with allied forces, announced it reached Iraqi border areas northeast of al-Tanf - taking control after eliminating pockets of terrorist fighters in the area.

Commander of Russian forces in Syria General Sergey Surovikin said “(t)he offensive along the western bank of the Euphrates is gaining momentum in the northeast of the Aleppo province.”

“Units of the Syrian armed forces and people’s militia have driven out militants of ISIL from…Maskanah, Ramtan, Shatna and approached the city of Tabqa.”

“They have gained control of the Jira airport, which has strategic importance.” In the last month alone, Russian warplanes carried out 1,268 sorties, destroying 3,200 terrorist facilities.

Trump Accuses Comey of Lying Under Oath

June 11th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz said Comey leaked government information and “privileged communications” to The NYT through his legal advisor, Columbia Law Professor Daniel Richman.

“We will leave it the appropriate authorities to determine whether this leak should be investigated” as a possible criminal violation, he said.

On Friday, Trump accused Comey of lying under oath during his Senate Intelligence Committee testimony.

He denied saying he hoped Comey would “let go” of the Michael Flynn investigation, or asked him to pledge loyalty.

What Came Out of Comey’s Testimony?

June 11th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

The media buildup ahead of his testimony was almost unprecedented. Mass Thursday coverage substituted for regular programming.

Comey’s appearance before Senate Intelligence Committee members was an unspectacular spectacle - lots of smoke, no fire touching Trump.

No blockbuster revelations came out, nothing suggesting Trump obstruction of justice or other wrongdoing in dealings with Comey.

Sure Trump is a liar, as Comey said. So are Obama, Bush/Cheney, the Clintons, all their predecessors, and virtually all congressional members.

All politicians lie. Nothing they say is credible - nothing to be taken at face value. Politicians can’t be trusted. Rare exceptions prove the rule. The criminal class in Washington is bipartisan - representing wealth, power and privilege, along with their own self-interest.

Is Google’s search-engine now appallingly corrupt?

June 11th, 2017

Eric Zuesse

Here is the evidence I’ve come across which indicates to me that the Google search-engine is now appallingly corrupt, and for which reason I am seeking (and hope to see in reader-comments at sites that publish this article) an alternative explanation for what presently appear to me to be systematic efforts by Google to hide crucial information and understanding from the public — to hide it so that the public can be manipulated to tolerate increasing control, by billionaires, of their governments (the diminution of democracy):

Persian Gulf Feud

June 10th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Riyadh accusing Qatar of supporting terrorism ignores the pernicious regional infestation of Saudi-supported extremist Wahhabism, the ideology connected to ISIS and likeminded groups.

Both countries support regional terrorist groups, both US allies, despite mixed messages from Washington on Qatar.

Secretary of State Tillerson called for “no further escalation by the parties in the region, (urging) calm and thoughtful dialogue” to resolve things, asking other Gulf states to ease their blockade, citing humanitarian reasons ignored by Washington in all its wars.

Qatar is home to the Pentagon’s Central Command, thousands of US military personnel stationed in the country. During his visit to Riyadh, Trump met with emir al-Thani, saying Washington’s “relationship (with the country) is extremely good.”

Israel Admits Having Nuclear Weapons

June 10th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Well sort of, indirectly. It’s been an open secret for decades. Israel is nuclear-armed and dangerous.

Perhaps its policy of nuclear ambiguity may end following The NYT report on its so-called “doomsday” plan at the onset of its preemptive Six-Day War - a walkover against Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Jordan.

The Times: “The secret contingency plan…would have been invoked if Israel feared it was going to lose…(t)he demonstration blast, Israeli officials believed, would intimidate” Arab states to back off.

The Times quoted Avner Cohen, an Israeli nuclear history scholar, saying possible use of the weapon is “the last secret of the 1967 war.”

He quoted retired Israeli general Itzhak Yaakov’s years earlier comments, saying “(y)ou’ve got an enemy, and he says he’s going to throw you to the sea.” “You believe him. How can you stop him? “You scare him. If you’ve got something you can scare him with, you scare him.” He was the only source Cohen cited.

In the months leading up to the war, Israel faced no threats from regional nations, later admitted by its political and military officials.

Being in Time-A Post Political Manifesto

June 8th, 2017

Gilad Atzmon

Skyscraper Publications

Video: https://youtu.be/UmTes7se-wY

The book is now available on both amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, my site and many other outlets. I can already see that Amazon UK is out of copies this morning which is a great news.


The book is already endorsed and reviewed by the following:

“Without a bullet being fired, [citizens] have lost almost total control of the apparatus of the U.S. state...Atzmon not only gives us his interpretation of how this happened, he also tells us why...His answers are damning, but he does give us hope that The Real can prevail.” Foreword by Cynthia McKinney, U.S. politician and political activist

Atzmon's book Being in Time is a brilliant and substantive critique of identity politics and Jewish political ideology and culture. It is an essential read for understanding and confronting authoritarianism of all stripes and colors. Professor James Petras

Speaking from his unique perspective as a professional Jazz musician, Gilad provides us once again with a characteristically universalist, humanistic, and humanitarian critique of contemporary Western politics, culture, values and mores. Well worth the read! Professor Francis A. Boyle

Anti-Trump Media Bias

June 8th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Trump’s complaint about unprecedented media bias is justified.

Campaigning he said “I’m not running against crooked Hillary. I’m running against the crooked media.”

As president, he criticized “dishonest media…fake news…publish(ing) one false story after another, with no sources, even though they pretend to have them.”

“They just don’t want to report the truth…They’re…part of the problem. (They’re) part of the corrupt system.”

A new Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy report, analyzing news coverage of his first 100 days, bears him out.

Analysis was based on NYT, WaPo, and WSJ broadsheet reports, plus ones from CBS, CNN, Fox News, NBC, the BBC, Financial Times and Germany’s ARD.

Reports about Trump were overwhelmingly negative, 98% of the time from one news sources, significantly more hostile than the last three administrations, bias more extreme than any administration since Nixon’s second term.

ISIS in the Philippines

June 8th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

In response to violence instigated by ISIS in the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte declared martial law in Mindanao, imposed military rule, and threatened to extend it nationwide to defeat the threat.

What’s going on? Why did ISIS begin operating in the Philippines? Weeks after taking office in mid-2016, Duterte blasted Western imperial Middle East policies, saying the Obama administration and Britain “destroyed the (region)…forc(ing) their way into Iraq and kill(ing) Saddam.”

“Look at Iraq now. Look what happened to Libya. Look what happened to Syria.” He blasted former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for failing to act responsibly against what’s gone on for years - on the phony pretext of humanitarian intervention and democracy building.

{Financial Times} Notes the Financial Crash Looming

June 8th, 2017

Executive Intelligence Review

May 31, 2017 (EIRNS) -- The London {Financial Times} on May 30 followed its Frankfurt-based competitor {Handelsblatt} of three weeks earlier, in publishing articles by bank researchers noting that a 2008-like debt crash may be near, triggered by an unrepayable U.S. corporate bubble. The article, by author Dombisa Moyo and financial editor Gillian Tett, is headlined "Global debt woes are building to a tidal wave." But it places most of the weight of danger on debt bubbles in the United States.

"U.S. companies have added $7.8tn [trillion] of debt since 2010 and their ability to cover interest payments is at its weakest since 2008," the authors note -- not getting into principal repayments. Both corporate and consumer debt have reached levels beyond those of 2008 not only in the United States, but also in the UK.
