Rep. Omar: Obama is a Murderer with a “Pretty Face”

The presence of Ilhan Omar in Congress certainly is a breath of fresh air. It is rare for a Democrat to trash Obama, but Omar did so, calling out the former president’s misdeeds, including “droning of countries around the world.” 

“We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile,” she told Politico Magazine. 

The amazing thing about the “hope and change” president is that his drone war, invasion of Libya, and arming of murderous Salafi terrorists

Ted Cruz: Accessory to Israeli Grand Larceny

In the United States, as Rep Omar pointed out, politicians on both sides of the aisle in both Houses   routinely fall over themselves to pledge fealty and taxpayer dollars to Israel. 

The Trump administration is virtually owned by the state of Israel. Donald Trump has taken money from casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and other wealthy pro-Israel donors. His daughter converted to Orthodox Judaism in 2009. Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, also an Orthodox Jew, is close to the Netanyahu regime in Israel. Two established neocons, John Bolton and Elliot Abrams, and a convert, Mike Pompeo, are bedrock supporters of the Israeli

Trump Breaks Another Promise: Troops Will Remain in Syria

It was a mere two months ago the president of the United States declared he would leave Syria and bring home the troops. 

“Our boys, our young women, our men, they’re all coming back,” Trump said. “And they’re coming back now. We won. And that’s the way we want it. And that’s the way they want it.”

That was then, this is now. 

Now Trump has gone back on his promise, as he has gone back

Tucker Carlson is Wrong About Neocon “Failures” 

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is wrong about the neocons. 

In an article posted at The American Conservative, Carlson argues that the neocons—he singles out Bill Kristol and Max Boot—didn’t achieve their objectives after 9/11, and yet they are considered foreign policy experts. 

The primary objective of multiple illegal invasions, according to Carlson and much of the corporate media, was an attempt to bring “democracy” to the Arab and Muslim Middle East and, at the same time, establish American primacy and “leadership” in the region. 

This is the feel-good explanation, but it is a mile off the mark. In

Trump: Staying in Syria for Israel

Poor Trump. He keeps making an idiot of himself.

The latest case: Syria. Trump said the troops will be coming home. But that promise has suddenly changed, as I knew it would.

The troops will stay in Syria, he said this weekend.

So there it is. The US is in Syria for Israel, to watch Iran. Congress wants the troops to remain and Congress is owned in part—a

Leaving Syria? Don’t Make Me Laugh

It only took a few days for the Trumpster to walk back his latest bit of flatulence masquerading as a principled promise. 

After talking with arch neocon simpatico Senator Lindsey Graham, Trump said the removal of troops from Syria will be a slow train—or more likely a train stalled on the tracks.

There are some things the Deep State with its penchant for endless war profiteering and creative destruction—basically order out of chaos and mass murder—will not tolerate. Demonitizing war and organized mass murder top the list of no-nos. 

First and foremost, the president does not call the shots on

US and Israel Knew Wahhabi Head-choppers Wouldn’t Win in Syria

Investigative journalist Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed has dredged up important document from the massive WikiLeaks archive. It is a draft of an internal US Marine Corps’  Intelligence Department forecasting paper produced in coordination with Strafor, often referred to as the private CIA, states a jihadi overthrow of Bashar al-Assad as highly improbable, if not impossible. 

The secret military secret document reveals “that both early on and toward the later phase of the conflict, senior US military officials had not given any credence to the democratic aspirations of Syrian protestors, but had merely sought to use them as a tool to

Israel Loses Its Blank Check to Bomb Syria

Russia has decided to do something about the Israelis setting up its surveillance plane to be shot down by Syria’s outdated S-200 missile system last week. It will now install its latest snd more advanced version of the antiaircraft system, the S-300. It is reportedly capable of identifying friend from foe.

No doubt this is freaking out the Israelis. Prior to this development, they had pretty much a free hand to target anything they wanted in Syria. It’s said they have so far conducted over 200 bombing raids inside the country without fear of a response from the Syrians or

Syria, the United Nations, and the  Slobodan Milosevic Treatment

It’s long been obvious the United Nations is a rubber stamp lapdog of the United States. It set the stage for a decade of sanctions that killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and piled sanctions of Libya that resulted in the US and NATO (another lapdog) taking military action that killed around 30,000 Libyans. 

Now that supposedly august body has signaled it will investigate war crimes in Syria. 

The Associated Press reports the “resolution adopted by the assembly said the body, known as the ‘International, Impartial and Independent Mechanism,’ would help collect and analyze evidence of violations of human rights

Media Ignores Israeli Role in Downing of Russian Aircraft in Syria

After the Syrians accidentally targeted a Russian surveillance aircraft over the Mediterranean and the Russians pinned the blame on Israel, the corporate propaganda media scrambled to spin the story. 

The Pentagon and State Department directed media insinuate the tragedy was the fault of the Russians, who got in the way of yet another—there are hundreds—illegal Israeli attack on Syria. The illegality of these persistent attacks on Syrian sovereignty is rarely if ever pointed out by the national security state’s scribes and teleprompter readers. 

Here is what these lackluster careerists in service to the state ignore: the Israelis used the Russian
