Only the insane and the few who profit from their manufacture actually want to see a world with more nuclear weapons. The nuclear arsenals of the world already contain more than enough warheads to wipe out life as we know it.
The House of Representatives wants to cut the Pentagon’s military-to-military cooperation with Russia. The provisions included in a $618.7 billion defense budget bill impose strict conditions for the US military on working with its Russian counterparts. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which sets policy for the Department of Defense for the next year, has been […]
The sense of deja-vu is very strong when reading this story, it is exactly the same ploy that the Reagan regime used in Afghanistan in the 1980s when they equipped the Mujahideen with Stinger missiles which were then used to shoot down Russian and Afghani aircraft.
Who knows, maybe one day, we will have a Congress and presidential candidates who will represent not only the very rich, but the very poor and the middle class. America’s problem is not the presidency but Congress, and that is where the reform must take place.
Donald Trump’s obscene words about women, revealed in the tape published by the Washington Post on Friday, might have doomed his presidency and obliterated Netanyahu’s Evangelical-based, Republican-first strategy in the process.
Anyone who believes that Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton will make a material difference to the future of the nation is a stupid fool. It is the Congress that has the real power to reshape the nation and its future. The Speaker of the House, while not enjoying the privileges of Air Force One and the trappings of the Presidency, is the most powerful man in Washington.
Americans’ approval of the US Congress remains low at 18 percent, a monthly Gallup poll taken August 3-7 shows. Editor’s note: Just a note on how internet Trump/Trolldom is divorced from reality. I can’t wait for the assholes to start pissing blood in the comment boards over this one. Good luck with that.g Americans’ […]
Jim W. Dean – This story is a tempest in a teapot for two reasons. Russia can do just fine with the US locking itself out of the Russian market. Plus, presidents have a wide hand when it comes to foreign policy.
A joint task force has determined that defense intelligence appraisals provided by US Central Command systematically provided a distorted “rosy” picture, in stark contrast to battlefield realities, in order to create the false appearance that the US strategy in Syria and Iraq was succeeding. On Thursday, a congressional joint task force (JTF) investigating allegations of intelligence […]
There is some evidence that Getty has been copyrighting photos taken from YouTube screen prints, Department of Defense photos and NASA offical public relations materials as well.
Pending legislation in the US House of Representatives that ostensibly requires food companies to disclose the presence of genetically engineered ingredients will do exactly the opposite by masking the use of gene splicing at the point of sale, Food and Water Watch Assistant Director Patty Lovera told Sputnik.
The Senate war over Russian rocket engines appears to be over, as lawmakers have agreed that an all-out boycott benefits no one.
Jim W. Dean – The replacement for the Iranian nuclear weapons hoax is rolling out as I had predicted. Russia won that prize, with NATO moving up to its borders with forces on hand, knowing that Russia would have to counter, and that being claimed as “aggression”.
The US has almost no welfare system; the schools and other public services are struggling to make ends meet and millions are unemployed. However, the govt has no problem spending hundred of millions on misguided meddling in foreign affairs. Clearly the US govt is putting BS ‘security’ concerns ahead of the needs of it’s own […]
Last Sunday, the lower house of the Brazilian Congress, the House of Representatives (Câmara dos Deputados, or Chamber of Deputies), decided by 367 votes in favor and 137 against, to initiate impeachment proceedings against the democratically elected President Dilma Rousseff, against whom there is not one shred of criminal evidence.
VA is looking for congressional action on more than 100 legislative proposals, and 40 of them are new this year. Perhaps most notably, the department is looking for help to fix the Veterans Choice Program, which both Congress and the VA acknowledge is largely broken.
There never seems to be an end to what needs to be opened up for discussion or issues that need to be brought to light, because it’s a sure-fire bet the political elite love their world of hidden agendas and secrecy.
However, the dissatisfaction with politicians from those who do pay attention to what is going on in the country (the number is decreasing with each passing year) on both sides of the aisle, is proving to be an unpredictable year as to who the political party candidates for president will be for the 2016 election. Most learned voters would just as soon hang them all from a yardarm!
I am sure $50 billion destined to Israel as “fence mending” could do a great deal to mend fences with millions of Americans (exceeding the entire population of Israel) cheated out of their homes, cheated out of their pensions, cheated out of their jobs, cheated out of their dignity and self-respect by the White House […]
It’s time to clean the Traitors out of the US Congress.
Jim W. Dean – The AIPAC crowd chose to do down with the Zionist ship and have gone very quiet now. When was the last time you heard them put out an invitation for one of their political lynchings?
Jim W. Dean – We may be seeing the long knives coming out between AIPAC, Bibi and the Likuds, over who will take the blame for their huge Iran defeat, when Israel was the the threat all along.
Sami Jamil Jadallah – Although reforming a corrupt, inept political process could not take place overnight or in a single election cycle, we as citizens and voters can change the entire political process within the next 10 years.
Jim W. Dean – I had been expecting the Zionists to put their US military wing on display so we could have a fresh list of names, and here are 200 opposing the Iran agreement using Netanyahu’s talking points.
Sami Jamil Jadallah – When it comes to the Iran nuclear deal, it is not the American public who will make the decision… The fate of the deal is in the hands of Israel.
The Free American is back with another 2 hour special.
It took only a few hours…
Congress has approved the creation of a veterans’ identification card, making it easier for veterans to prove military service without having to produce a military service record or some other valuable document.
It has come of a common opinion amongst Vietnam War Veterans that Congress tends to exclude mostly Blue Water Vietnam Veterans for VA benefits.
“There is really almost no support around the world for this extremist right-wing Israeli Likudnik program to accelerate the genocide in Palestine.”
