UK Defense Secretary Calls Terror-Bombing Yemen Saudi Self-Defense

May 14th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Let’s see if I’ve got this straight. America has been drone-bombing Yemen since the Bush/Cheney years, largely killing defenseless civilians, yet media scoundrels ignore it.

In March 2015, Obama launched preemptive war on the country without declaring it, conspiring with Saudi Arabia, creating a humanitarian disaster, at least 80% of the population affected - hundreds of thousands at risk of starvation, dying from preventable diseases or perishing from Riyadh terror-bombing.

Media scoundrels largely abstain from covering a raging holocaust instead of condemning it. As long as they’re silent, the world’s severest humanitarian crisis goes unnoticed - except in occasional UN reports they don’t publish or comment on. Official death and injury numbers way-understate the calamity’s enormity, most Yemenis at risk.

According to London’s Independent, neocon UK Defense Secretary Michael Fallon defended the indefensible, saying Riyadh is “defending itself,” blaming Houthi fighters for Saudi high crimes committed against them and defenseless Yemeni civilians.

China Hopeful New South Korean President Can Help Ease Regional Tensions

May 12th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

On Wednesday, Moon Jae-In was sworn in as South Korea’s new president.

He supports dialogue with Pyongyang, expressed willingness to visit the DPRK and improve relations provided nuclear tests stop.

After his election, he said “I will quickly move to solve the crisis in national security. I am willing to go anywhere for peace on the Korean Peninsula.”

“If needed, I will fly immediately to Washington. I will go to Beijing and I will go to Tokyo. If the conditions shape up, I will go to Pyongyang.”

He’ll “sincerely negotiate” with Washington over its controversial THAAD missile system deployment on South Korean territory, endangering the country, angering China and Russia.

War Criminal Obama Receives JFK Profile in Courage Award

May 12th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

His deplorable record speaks for itself. He’s no JFK, just the opposite, an unindicted war criminal unaccountable for eight years of high crimes against peace.

He enforced police state harshness, waged war on Islam, Latino immigrants, environmental and animal rights activists, whistleblowers, and others challenging his ruthlessness.

He force-fed austerity on America’s most vulnerable to benefit Wall Street, other corporate favorites and the nation’s privileged class, accelerating the wealth disparity between rich and poor.

Undemocratic Democrats Hope to Oust Trump the Way Watergate Toppled Nixon

May 11th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

They want him hounded and railroaded from office for the wrong reasons.

Claiming Russian US election hacking on his behalf isn’t working, but the phony accusation persists, bashing Moscow and Trump at the same time.

On Wednesday, Dems got another issue with Comey’s sacking, calling it Nixonian, equating it to Watergate, comparing it to the October 1973 Saturday Night Massacre, hoping their arguments stick.

Senator Richard Blumenthal and other Democrats called for a special prosecutor after Comey’s firing, wanting an independent investigation into nonexistent Russian US election hacking.

Media Scoundrels’ Rage Over Comey’s Firing

May 11th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Sacking Comey gives them another reason to bash Trump for the wrong reasons, not justifiable ones, notably for continuing imperial wars on humanity and deplorable domestic policies.

The neocon/CIA-connected Washington hit him with a blizzard of critical reports. Wednesday headlines included:

“Comey’s removal sparks fears about future of Russia probe”

“Shocking firing raises questions and stakes for the White House”

“Is Comey’s firing ‘Nixonian’ or uniquely Trumpian?”

“ ‘This terrifies me:’ Ex-Clinton aides express disbelief, outrage”

New South Korean President Wants Improved Ties with North

May 11th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Moon Jae-In is poised to become South Korea’s next president - assuming office as soon as Seoul’s Central Electoral Commission certifies final results - after triumphing decisively with over 41% support in a field of 12 aspirants.

His nearest two rivals got 23.3% and 21.8% support respectively. He’ll serve a single five-year term. In 2012, he lost to Park Geun-hye - impeached last December on corruption charges, suspended from office, then ousted in March, arrested and detained. In April, she was formally charged with abuse of power, bribery, coercion and leaking government secrets. She faces trial and possible imprisonment.

Human rights attorney Moon earlier served as former President Roh-Moo-hyun’s chief of staff. He co-founded The Hankyoreh, a South Korean progressive broadsheet.

Chronic Fatigue Syndromes, POTS and the Dangers of Aluminum-adjuvanted Vaccines like Gardisil

May 11th, 2017

Gary G. Kohls, MD

“The full extent of the Gardasil scandal needs to be assessed: everyone knew when this vaccine was released on the American market that it would prove to be worthless…I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all time because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers. Gardasil is useless and costs a fortune and decision-makers at all levels are aware of it! Cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome, paralysis of the lower limbs, vaccine-induced MS and vaccine-induced encephalitis can be found, whatever the vaccine.” -- Dr Bernard Dalbergue (former Merck employee)

“No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable…for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death.” – President Ronald Reagan, as he signed The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986, absolving drug companies from all medico-legal liability when children die, are injured or are disabled from vaccine injuries, thus reversing many of the intentions of the original legislation establishing the FDA

Lavrov in Washington

May 11th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Lavrov is a world-class diplomat. America had no one like him in modern memory.

In dealing with Washington, he has an impossible job, trying to improve relations with a nation hostile to Russia for the last century - since its 1917 revolution, continuing after the Soviet Union’s 1991 dissolution.

On Wednesday, Lavrov met with Rex Tillerson and Trump in Washington. Despite deplorable bilateral relations, his comments were positive, saying:“I had a bilateral meeting with Rex Tillerson, then the two of us were received by President Trump. We discussed, first and foremost, our cooperation on the international stage.”

“At present, our dialogue is not as politicized as it used to be during Obama’s presidency. The Trump administration, including the president himself and the secretary of state, are people of action who are willing to negotiate.”

Trump Approves Heavy Weapons for Kurds, Afghanistan Surge Likely

May 11th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Trump straightaway in office proved his noninterventionist campaign promises were baloney!

He escalated Bush/Cheney/Obama wars in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, threatens possible nuclear war on the Korean peninsula, dashed hoped for improved relations with Russia, and likely intends sending thousands more combat troops to Afghanistan - America’s longest war, lost years ago.

No increased US troop strength can change things. America’s presence is the root cause of raping and destroying the country, devastating long-suffering Afghans - ruled by illegitimate pro-Western puppet governance.

Trump Sacks Comey

May 11th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Virtually everything happening in Washington is politically motivated, not responsible actions by presidents, Congress and judicial authorities for the general welfare.

FBI history is notorious, an agency protecting privilege from beneficial social change, serving powerful interests exclusively.

Throughout its sordid history, it activities included infiltrating, disrupting, sabotaging and destroying activist groups for ethnic justice; racial emancipation; economic, social, and political equality across gender and color lines; along with elements opposed to imperial wars.

Harmful to the general welfare agency activities continue no matter who’s in charge or staffs high-level positions.

Comey’s firing won’t change a thing. The new director will be like previous ones. America’s police state system needs changing - possible only by committed grass roots activism, never top down by politicians or bureaucrats.
