This is for the Guardian, NYT and the BBC: 1939 to 2018 By William Bowles

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 16:14:51 +0000

I don't think you need a crystal ball to figure out that capitalism is headed down the major war path, it's displaying all the same pathological signs as it has done in past decades; economic crisis, economic collapse, repression abroad and repression at home. Increasing intolerance; increasing censorship of any opposition to the maniacs allegedly running things. This is how things were in the 1930s, when my folks cut their political teeth.

The US is Arming and Assisting Neo-Nazis in Ukraine, While Congress Debates Prohibition By Max Blumenthal

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 19:51:50 +0000

The American government’s collaboration with committed Nazi ideologues to undercut Russian geopolitical goals is not new, nor has it been a particularly well-kept secret. In his 1988 book length expose, “Blowback,” investigative journalist Christopher Simpson lifted the cover off the CIA’s program of rehabilitating former assets of Nazi Germany, including documented war criminals, and revealed how it employed them counter the spread of communism in Europe.

Media Lens: A Liberal Pillar Of The Establishment – ‘New Look’ Guardian, Old-Style Orthodoxy

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 19:54:41 +0000

It is certainly true that the Guardian 'will remain what it has always been': a liberal pillar of the establishment; a gatekeeper of 'acceptable' news and comment. 'Thus far, and no further', to use Chomsky's phrase. But, as mentioned, the Guardian will not go even as far in the political spectrum as Corbyn: a traditional left Labour figure, rather than a radical socialist proclaiming 'Revolution!' or an anarchist itching to bring down global capitalism.

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 18:46:24 +0000

In a YouTube video, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn described the collapse of Carillion, the UK’s second largest construction company, as a “watershed moment,” a signal it is “time to put an end to the rip-off privatisation policies that have done serious damage to our public services and fleeced the public of billions of pounds.”

Slapping an Israeli Soldier More Newsworthy Than Shooting a Palestinian Child in the Face By Gregory Shupak

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 07:47:12 +0000

Israeli soldiers shot 14-year-old Palestinian Mohammad Tamimi point-blank in the face with a rubber-jacketed bullet on December 14, 2017, in Nabi Saleh, a small village in the occupied West Bank. The boy had to undergo six hours of surgery and was placed in a medically induced coma. An hour later, Mohammad’s cousin, Ahed Tamimi, slapped and kicked at an armed Israeli soldier. Early the next week, after video of Ahed’s actions went viral, Israeli soldiers raided the Tamimi home at 3 a.m., arresting Ahed and confiscating the family’s phones, computers and laptops.
