One Congressional staffer attending the WINEP event emailed me, “Dennis spoke in jest — well I assumed he did — but who knows anymore? Things are getting ever crazier inside some of these pro-Israel think-tanks around here.”
Many independent and conscientious thinkers and scholars in the world agree with this assumption that the sanctions which the United States and the European Union have imposed on Iran over its nuclear program are inhumane, unjust, contrary to the principles of human rights and constitute an act of war and collective punishment.
Orwellian Nightmare Law Empowers Cover-Ups. The law, how do we describe it, is very clear.

Today notorious Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio joined Senator John McCain and announced that the horrific Arizona fires were "likely set by Mexican smugglers" with the operative word be "likely"; just speculation, no evidence whatsoever.
Washington exists to prove that religion, family values and even patriotism corrupt as well. Add a dash of “conservatism” and no toddler is safe without a titanium chastity belt. Sex scandals in Washington are old news and Weinergate seems to be way below par.

The U.S. Army illegally ordered a team of soldiers specializing in “psychological operations” to manipulate visiting American senators into providing more troops and funding for the war, Rolling Stone has learned – and when an officer tried to stop the operation, he was railroaded by military investigators.
From Wonkette By Jack Stuef Despite Republican attempts to stick in a last-minute defense appropriations amendment that failed to kill the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repeal, President Obama finally signed it into law, hooray. But while this simple measure to make this country more fair and equal was a no-brainer for most Americans, it was not for [...]
When it comes to John McCain, pick any week the last 50 years for the lying, self-entitled pip-squeak. Salon nails him this week. By Alex Pareene in Salon John McCain has finally, inexorably stumbled upon the weirdest and most transparently troll-ish reason yet to oppose the repeal of the military’s ban on gay and lesbian [...]
HAS AIPAC MADE THE FBI THE “FBE,” FEDERAL BUREAU OF ESPIONAGE? By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor AIPAC is a sham.

PULLING THE PLUG MIGHT BE A FAVOR By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor The internet is not a reliable place for information, in fact, it can be almost as bad as television or a college education. The internet has also become more dangerous than most guess. The internet now breeds zombies, yes, the brain eating, [...]
COMBAT VETERANS FOR CONGRESS is a thinly veiled front organization for AIPAC, the Israel lobby, oil companies, the “bankster” and insurance lobbys and right wing extremists. This is another rehash of the mindless hag, Sarah Palin, “Hanoi John” McCain and his front man “Bud” Day, America’s most questionable Medal of Honor holder and Wall Street money. This is a phony organization, to its roots, un-American, destructive to honorable American values and, from top to bottom, genuinely EVIL.
Aristotle, in his Book II of the Nicomachean Ethics sees virtue as an admirable character trait that is the mean between the vices of deficiency and excess. In politics of course no one directly discusses ethics, just talking points in support of message. Barry Goldwater was an exception: “I would remind you that extremism in the [...]
The phony intelligence used to induce our March 2003 invasion of Iraq has been dusted off. This time it’s being deployed to take us into Iran. Same scam. Same storyline. Same fraud—even featuring some of the same players.
