Steve Lendman – Defrocked US General Blames Iran For US Crimes In Iraq – 23 March 2015

StevelendmanBlaming others for its own crimes is longstanding US policy. Lunatic active duty, retired and defrocked Pentagon generals lie like their government counterparts.
David Petraeus is one of the worst. On March 20, the neocon Washington Post headlined “Petraeus: The Islamic State isn’t our biggest problem in Iraq.”
He attended an annual University of Iraq Sulaimani Forum gathering of “Iraqi leaders, thinkers and academics…”

Steve Lendman – Lurching Toward Armageddon – 23 March 2015

StevelendmanNeocon lunatic fringe elements infest Washington. They control US policy – notably on issues of war and peace.
They’re using NATO and US installed Ukrainian Nazis to stoke direct confrontation with Russia.
Daily geopolitical events should scare everyone. Gunslinger NATO commander General Philip Breedlove rails about nonexistent “Russian aggression.”
He wants Minsk sabotaged. He wants war, not peace. He wants full US-led Western support given Ukraine to wage it.

ActivistPost – How Much Time Do Americans Spend Plugged Into The Matrix Every Day? – 23 March 2015

The average American spends more than 10 hours a day using an electronic device.  And most of that activity is not even interactive.  The vast majority of the time we are just passively absorbing content that someone else has created.  This very much reminds me of the movie The Matrix, but with a twist. Instead of humans being forcefully connected to “the Matrix”, we are all willingly connecting ourselves to it.

Jon Rappoport – Why Doesn’t Hawaii Judge Become A Monsanto Employee? – 23 March 2015

jon7I can hear people saying, “She’s already working for Monsanto.”

If so, she’s doing a terrific job.

Federal Judge Susan Oki Mollway is doing everything she can to nullify what the voters of Maui legally created on Election Day 2014.

In an historic effort, those voters passed a ballot measure temporarily blocking Monsanto and Dow from continuing their toxic GMO and pesticide experiments in the “open-air laboratory” of Maui.

Monsanto and Dow then turned around and sued to nullify that vote, and the County Government of Maui, betraying their own citizens, joined forces with the two corporate behemoths. Continue reading

Watching The Hawks: Power-Trio Hatch New RT Show To Test MSM – 23 March 2015

RT logoA trio of self-proclaimed revolutionaries is vowing to bring a new kind of talk show to the airways. Sean Stone, Tyrel Ventura and Tabetha Wallace make up a new generation of co-hosts on RT America’s ‘Watching the Hawks’, a new current events show.

“We sit down and really go through stories, instead of sort of that break-neck pace of the regular [news],” Wallace told RT’s Larry King for an upcoming episode of ‘Politicking’, adding that the three co-hosts focus on context and the broader pictures as much as they do on the facts of the story.

“We kind of see it from all of our perspectives. And we don’t always agree on things, but we have always naturally been people who can disagree and still have a conversation and walk out learning more about each other and about the world,” Wallace said. “And we’re trying to bring a little of that ‒ what we have naturally ‒ to the air instead of everybody yelling at each other.”
