Lee Fang at The Intercept revealed on March 31st, that the Republican Party were defrauding the American people with assertions that their Party has an alternative to Obamacare — the Affordable Care Act — and that they’ll pass it if and when they come to power. His headline summarized the considerable evidence for this, "GOP Lawmakers Now Admit Years of Obamacare Repeal Votes Were a Sham”, and his article made clear that the Republican Party has no desire to serve the public, in public office, but are total fraudsters, whose sole real goal is to gain power in order to do what their big billionaire donors want done.
So-called “Russian aggression” is a US-invented canard, a Russia bashing tactic, a malicious Big Lie.
At NATO headquarters in Brussels, Secretary of State Tillerson falsely accused Moscow of “agitation” and “aggression,” saying NATO is committed to counter it.
In London, Defense Secretary Mattis lied, saying “(w)e have seen Russian activity vis-a-vis the Taliban,” adding:
“I’m not going to say at this point if that has manifested into weapons and that sort of thing, but certainly what they’re up to there in light of their other activities gives us concern.”
Days earlier, US NATO commander General Curtis Scaparrotti told Senate Armed Services Committee members he’s “seen the influence of Russia of late - increased influence in terms of association and perhaps even supply to the Taliban.”
Tillerson, Mattis and Scaparrotti provided no evidence supporting their allegations. There is none. No Russian “aggression” or “agitation” exists, no aid to Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.
In today’s information age, so different from my early years and young adulthood, it’s simple to stay well informed.
Yet too few people bother, relying instead on media propaganda, especially so-called television “news,” brainwashing them, assuring they’re good citizens and stay that way, suppressing what everyone most needs to know.
My own brother believes The New York Times and other media like it are reliable sources of news, information and opinion. I haven’t convinced him otherwise, nor gotten him to follow my writing - done pro bono. No one directs what I say or pays me a dime.
It’s my way late in life to give back for blessings afforded to too few others - especially in America, once a land of opportunity when I grew up, now serving its privileged few alone, most others left out entirely, facing unemployment, underemployment, poverty and for too many appalling human misery.
What’s it all about? On March 29, Venezuela’s Supreme Court (TSJ) ruled the National Assembly in contempt of court for continuing to allow three anti-Bolivarian politicians to be seated in the body despite elections they won declared null and void - because of irregularities discovered.
The High Court ordered them re-re-run. Evidence revealed vote-buying. Permitting the disputed deputies to hold their seats would give anti-President Maduro forces broader powers with a two-thirds majority.
The TSJ’s order was ignored, three disputed deputies sworn in illegally. Last August, TSJ justices declared National Assembly Presiding Council members and disputed deputies in contempt of court.
A rogue’s gallery of Zionist zealots addressed attendees at the Washington Convention Center, including numerous congressional members - proceedings held from March 26 - 28.
Protesters called the conference an AIPACalyse, outside as well as inside this year.
The Jewish Defense League (JDL), founded by Meir Kahana, supports anti-Arab violence. The Department of Homeland Security called it a “former terrorist organization.”
The FBI considers it “a right-wing extremist group,” accusing it of plotting and carrying out violent incidents.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the White House “pushe(d) off the Kremlin’s proposals for a meeting with President Vladimir Putin and takes an increasingly skeptical view of reaching a grand bargain with Moscow.”
In mid-April, Tillerson will meet with Sergey Lavrov in Moscow for the first time since a brief get-to-know-you meeting on the sidelines of the Bonn, Germany G20 foreign ministers summit.
Heightened anti-Russia sentiment in Washington prevents improved bilateral relations, unlikely any time ahead as long as it’s prudent to predict.
Republican and Democrat senators vowed to “go wherever the intelligence leads us.” House members are “bogged down amid partisan acrimony,” the Journal explained.
US intelligence claims about Russian US elections hacking were fabricated. No evidence corroborates them. None exists except what’s invented - to bash Russia and undermine Trump.
Thursday’s hearing on Russia was reminiscent of the Spanish Inquisition - a nation and its leadership on trial, spurious accusations featured, made-for-television witch-hunt proceedings.
McCarthyism is back on steroids. Intense bipartisan Russia bashing risks possible military confrontation.
Fabricated claims about Russian US election hacking persist - despite no evidence suggesting it. Congress is spoiling for a fight.
The Thursday Senate Select Committee on Intelligence open hearing was Orwellian titled “Disinformation: A Primer in Russian Active Measures and Influence Campaigns.”
The new policy replicates the existing one - unrestrained construction on stolen Palestinian land.
On the one hand, Israel said it’ll “significantly rein in the footprint” of settlement construction, limiting it “wherever possible” in new areas - a meaningless statement, intending unrestrained longstanding policy.
Netanyahu proved it by announcing Israel’s first new settlement since the 1993 Oslo Accords.
It’ll be located north of Ramallah - on Palestinian land registered as belonging to Israel. Security cabinet members approved it unanimously.
Iran is falsely accused by Washington, Israel, AIPAC and other dark forces of being the world’s “biggest sponsor of terrorism” - a despicable Big Lie.
It’s the price it pays for 38 years of sovereign independence, free from US dominance, refusing to serve its imperial interests.
On Thursday, Sergey Lavrov praised Iran as a “powerful player” in combating terrorism in Syria, saying:
“What we do now with Iran and those that cooperate with us and the Syrian army is fighting terrorists in Syria.”
“Iran is a powerful player on the ground, legitimately invited by (Assad’s) government” - combating the scourge of US-supported terrorism.
Judicial Watch earlier investigated a controversial Clinton Foundation 2010 uranium deal with Russia. As secretary of state, Hillary used her position for profit-making.
In his book “Clinton Cash,” Peter Scheweizer raised questions about the deal and others, involving millions of dollars of Clinton Foundation donations from foreign governments and other sources.
The foundation was used as a money-laundering, pay-to-play, self-enrichment racket, masquerading as a charitable NGO.
Federal, state and international laws prohibit operating so-called public charities for private gain. The Clinton Foundation systematically ignores its legal obligations - unaccountably so far.
