  Blood Profiteering

Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org (Home - Stephen Lendman)

Blood is a river of life, providing nutrients to every cell in our bodies while carrying away waste products.

Its composed of cells and plasma, the latter its liquid component, comprising most bodily blood volume. It contains other substances vital to life.

Other than physicians, especially hematologists and surgeons, few people think about blood unless they bleed, have blood tests, need transfusions or discover they have a blood disorder.

Otherwise, the river of life is ignored. Not to pharmaceutical companies and other blood profiteers. For them, blood is a commodity to be sold for profit.

It’s big business, netting billion dollars in profits annually. In America, facilities mostly in poor communities pay donors for their blood, a practice European countries forbid.

For impoverished Americans, it’s a source of income, along with a health risk for repeated donations, even when not in the best of health.

  Discounting North Korea’s ICBM Capability

Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org (Home - Stephen Lendman)

Based on its ballistic missile tests so far, including its most recent ones last month, Russia believes the DPRK hasn’t yet achieved ICBM capability.

Noted ballistic missile/rocket expert Theodore Postol partly agrees, along with German rocket experts Markus Schiller and Robert Schmucker.

In an analysis for the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, they called Pyongyang’s Hwasong-14 ballistic missile, tested twice in July “a ‘sub-level’ ICBM that will not be able to deliver nuclear warheads to the continental United States.”

“Our analysis shows that the current variant of the Hwasong-14 may not even be capable of delivering a first-generation nuclear warhead to Anchorage, Alaska, although such a possibility cannot be categorically ruled out.”

  Neocon Pence Calls Democratic Venezuela a Hemispheric and US Threat

Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org (Home - Stephen Lendman)

In Colombia visiting narco-terrorist/Nobel Peace Prize winning President Juan Manuel Santos, Pence threatened Venezuela, saying:

“President Trump has made it very clear that we will not stand by while Venezuela collapses into dictatorship.”

“A failed state in Venezuela threatens the security and prosperity of our entire hemisphere and the people of the United States of America.”

Washington intends doing whatever it takes to change things, he blustered - wanting the country’s model democracy replaced by fascist tyranny imperial America controls, he failed to explain.

  Israel to Build Underground Wall Along Border with Gaza

Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org (Home - Stephen Lendman)

Israel wants walls, not peace. Stopthewall.org calls its walls “an integral part of the Zionist project to remove Palestinians from Palestine” - continuing decades of ethnic cleansing.

The organization calls for dismantling what’s been built, halting future construction, returning confiscated lands to their rightful owners, and fully compensating them for damages and lost income.

Israel is the only nation without declared borders, the only one surrounding itself with walls - built to steal land and enforce repression, not for security as claimed.

Palestinian communities are encircled, isolated from each other. Landowners and residents in areas between the wall and so-called Green Line (the Seam Zone) need permits to access their homes and farmland.

  CIA Director Pompeo Fear-Mongering

Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org (Home - Stephen Lendman)

The CIA represents America’s dark side, an agency incompatible with peace, equity and justice - neocon Pompeo the latest in a long line of rogue directors.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, he hyped a nonexistent North Korea threat, a nation that hasn’t preemptively attacked another country throughout its entire post-WW II history.

It threatens none now, not its neighbors or America - despite fear-mongering claims otherwise by Trump, other administration officials, congressional members, media scoundrels and Pompeo, part of his mandate as CIA head, along with directing all its other dirty tricks, aimed at advancing America’s imperium at the expense of world peace and stability.

  WaPo’s War on Venezuela

Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org (Home - Stephen Lendman)

The neocon Washington Post is a CIA house organ, putting out its message, supporting its ruthless practices, including decades of toppling independent leaders, replacing them with US-controlled puppets.

Venezuela is in the eye of the storm, CIA-orchestrated street violence ongoing for months, along with US political and economic war, creating enormous hardships for ordinary people.

WaPo falsely and maliciously called democratic governance under Maduro “repressive and irrational.”

It lied about its democratically elected Constituent Assembly - tasked with revising or rewriting Venezuela’s constitution, aiming to restore order and preserve Bolivarian social democracy - WaPo disgracefully calling it “Maduro’s latest power grab.”

It labeled democracy in action “a phony election to install a new, rubber-stamp legislature, accompanied by a crackdown on domestic opponents.”

It cited the so-called Lima Declaration, signed by most regional countries plus Canada, all subservient to Washington, hostile to Venezuelan social democracy, an affront to its people, stepping up unacceptable pressure on the country.

  Yellowstone Volcano - What You Need to Know - Yellowstone eruption predicted - Yellowstone Caldera

NightTerrors

Continuing earthquake swarm activity about the Yellowstone caldera warns the Yellowstone Volcano is going to erupt. The Yellowstone eruption will bury surrounding states in several feet of ash. That is only the beginning of the threat to planet Earth and our fragile human civilization, by the Yellowstone Supervolcano.

A lake of molten carbon was discovered by researchers in May of this year running under fifteen states in the Western US. The release of only one percent of it would be equal to all the oil humanity has burned for the last 65 years. The release valve for the huge reservois of carbonate magma, is the Supervolcano at Yellowstone.

Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks World War III by Stephen Lendman

Synopsis by Clarity Press

Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks World War III provides insight into today's gravest geopolitical crisis since WW II. Possible global war looms. Viewed from the perspective of Western mainstream media, the crisis arose due to pro-democracy activists overturning a brutal dictatorship, which led swiftly to Russian incursion into Ukraine and annexation of Crimea. Viewed from the perspective of the 22 highly-credentialed analysts who have contributed to this anthology, it’s an entirely different story. Obama's pivot is global, in pursuit of unchallenged worldwide dominance, leading to multiple direct and proxy wars. Neocon- dominated Washington seeks to marginalize its Russian and Chinese rivals, surrounding both countries with US bases. Ukraine is in the eye of the storm, the crown jewel of NATO eastward expansion, the last step in Washington's drive to incorporate all former Soviet republics and Warsaw Pact countries into NATO and install missile defense sites on Russia’s very border.

THE 2001 ANTHRAX DECEPTION The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy by Graeme MacQueen

review by Prof. Edward Curtin

The anthrax attacks that followed those of 9/11 have disappeared from public memory in ways analogous to the pulverization of the Twin Towers and World Trade Center Building 7. For the towers, at least, ghostly afterimages persist, albeit fading like last night’s nightmare. But the anthrax attacks, clearly linked to 9/11 and the Patriot Act, are like lost letters, sent, but long forgotten. Such disappearing acts are a staple of American life these days. Memory has come upon hard times. With The 2001 Anthrax Deception, Professor Graeme MacQueen, founding Director of the Center for Peace Studies at McMaster University, calls us back to a careful reconsideration of the anthrax attacks. It is an eloquent and pellucid lesson in inductive reasoning and deserves to stand with David Ray Griffin’s brilliant multi-volume dissection of the truth of that tragic September 11th. MacQueen makes a powerful case for the linkage of both events, a tie that binds both to insider elements deep within the U.S. government, perhaps in coordination with foreign elements.
