Populism, Democracy and the Big Lie

The news media lies to you, but probably not in the way you are thinking.
When you think of news media lies you probably think of Saddam's WMDs and his fictional ties to al-Qaeda.
This lie was the exception because the news media was lazy. They lied about something specific that could be easily disproven, which was unusually sloppy for them. Most of the media's lies are much larger and harder to disprove and usually involve half-truths and lies of omission.

I have no words for the trash pointed to in this OP

So primary season for 2020 has opened, and the first target is Bernie:

Has the fire Berned out?" the Boston Globe's Michael Levenson asks on the front page.

The state of play: "[A]s Sanders weighs another campaign, some say that even as he has moved the Democratic Party ideologically — pushing issues such as Medicare for all, free college tuition, and a $15 minimum wage into the mainstream — the party has moved past him personally."

Could Nancy Pelosi be the next president of the United States?

People like this are frightening. I thought enough people had gotten wise to this Louise Mensch-type crap. I thought that the worst of the lunatic fringe had been banished to the asylums (Mensch and Taylor). But obviously I continue to underestimate the blatant corruption and arrogance of people like this guy, a perfect example of those who push these impossible scenarios, and the number of my fellow citizens who continue to believe it.

Four current articles against Deep State policy in Syria

Four articles strongly critical of Deep State policy in Syria may be moving the focus of world attention toward peace and against planetary suicide. I know that's a strong statement, but I feel there is reason to hope that common sense and clear research are gaining attention.

I have not finished reading each of these articles, but I hope we can increase our knowledge and confidence in a future without annihilation by studying them and carrying them forward.

China versus the U.S.: will trade war become hot war? Falling into the Thucydides Trap

American politicians are almost unique in failing to learn from history--although M. Macron is giving our pols a run for the money (Rothchild's actually) by suppressing the Yellow Vests. The lesson I am sharing with you is not new. It's 2500 years old in fact and well documented too.

Democrats Unanimously Vote for Trump to Hire Antisemitism Propganda Envoy

The new 116th Congress starts the new year off in a typical bipartisan fashion, when it comes to Israel, by (almost) unanimously passing H.R.221- Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Act, in an effort to force Trump to hire an Israel propaganda agent. Yes for all those "AOC" fans, that included her and the other one who called Trump a "shut your mouth". Dems: Yay - 226, No - 0.

Don't you just love the smell of AIPAC in the halls of Congress in the afternoon.
