Psychopathy is not a political position, whether labeled 'conservatism', 'centrism' or 'left'.

A tin labeled 'coffee' may be a can of worms or pathology identified by a lack of empathy/willingness to harm others to achieve personal desires.

politicians don't give
@Ellen North
a damn about their constituents, they only care about their high roller contributors.
Whom essentially owe their high roller existence to the Oligarchy.
So, that feeling that the DNC, DCCC ignoring us? Or worse? Is true. But, we knew that. This piece from 1992 simply confirms.
The other point - and this from 1992 - is that, unless connected, we ain't going anywhere near one of those economic ladders, let alone climbing one. The Oligarchy wants us dead or broke or preferably both. And, that was 26 years ago! There is Zero intention by TPTB to raise the minimum wage. None. And without pressure from the bottom won't happen. The intent, instead, is for ever cheaper labor, which is why nothing is manufactured here, why there are fewer jobs here despite the fact that 10,000 Boomers retire Every. Single. Day. That Should be 50,000 jobs a week right there, many of them once decent paying. But, nope. Apparently not. Good video!

which must be torn away from all it now touches before it entirely cuts off all opportunity for life to breathe.

The spinners have been lurking in the shadows and battening on the rest of us to this point of our incipient demise.

If, in these final days, the world fails so much as raise a middle finger in response, humans might in some sense bear responsibility for obediently responding to the strings from this psychopathic group jerking us around until that last drop of life-blood is required to feed the monster its final meal of everything - but the rest of planetary life doesn't.

I hope it's not too little too late, though.

Whatever it does on our end, I am glad to see some of the rest of the world finally beginning to baulk at contributing to their own demise.

US sanctions on Iran behind yuan-traded oil futures gain on petrodollar
Published time: 16 May, 2018 12:27

...“There has been speculation that restrictions on Iranian oil sales and the lack of access to dollar financing will boost demand for yuan-denominated Shanghai futures,” said BMI Research in a note, according to CNBC.

“With China deepening its energy ties with Iran and given Beijing's desire both to support the contact and — relatedly — to further internationalize the use of its currency, payment in yuan and bench-marking against Shanghai futures would seem logical.” ...

However, Russia has already issued fair warning about attacks directed against Russian personnel and property - and they have been disregarded. The phrasing/tone on these seems telling.

The fact that such things as use of proxy/created groups of terrorists by the US and other PTB since this initially secret program began as the US-industrialist-sponsored Nazi's began to lose WW2 have been proven again and again over decades and the excuses have long since worn too thin not to be seen through. And the reality-detached PTB believe that they don't need us Disposables - or even life on the planet - to do just fine themselves.

I have a feeling that this is final; there will be no bluster or threats from Putin if the US/global network of PTB are not stopped in their murderously destructive global take-over attempt...

It appears possible that Russian nationals are being brought home to prepare for a final defense.

Russian military personnel killed in shelling carried out by terrorists in Syria

Russian servicemen have been killed in shelling carried out by terrorists in Deir ez-Zor province in eastern Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

Terrorists attacked Syrian and Russian troops, and the latter was forced to respond, according to the MoD. A total of 43 terrorists were killed in the clashes, and six vehicles were also destroyed, the ministry stated.

Two Russian military advisers were killed on the spot and five more of the country’s servicemen were injured and transported to hospital. Later, two more servicemen succumbed to their injuries.

The Russian air campaign in support of anti-terrorist efforts by the Syrian government lasted from September 2015 to December 2017. Last December, President Vladimir Putin visited Khmeimim Airbase to announce the withdrawal of Russian troops from the country.

Russia played a major role in the defeat of Islamic State, Jabhat Al-Nusra and other terrorist groups in the country. Around 60,000 militants were eliminated during the operation, according to Defense Ministry estimates.

US anti-tank missiles found at former Al-Nusra facility in Syria – Russian MoD (VIDEO)

Edited time: 21 May, 2018 11:52

US-made TOW anti-tank missiles, along with other weapons, have been found in facilities once controlled by Al-Nusra militants in Syria’s Homs province, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

The trove was located in a former observation point of the Al-Nusra Front terrorist group in the liberated Zaafaran settlement in Homs province, the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria said on Monday. “[We] can see here a large number of gas masks, weapons produced abroad, for example, TOW-2 anti-tank guided missiles. The facilities are very well-equipped,” Andrey Nekipelov, an official at the center, stated.

The BGM-71 TOW (Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided) is one of the most widely used anti-tank missiles, which has been produced in the US since the 1970s. The missile has an operational range of more than 3,000 meters and an armor penetration of up to 800 millimeters, depending on the model. The TOW-2 referred to by the Russian MoD is an advanced and upgraded version of the missile.

Hundreds of the missiles have fallen into the hands of various rebel factions during the Syrian conflict. The US-made TOW was reportedly used in an attack on an RT crew in Syria back in 2015.

In 2016, another video published by a Syrian rebel group showed what appeared to be a direct hit by a US-made BGM-71 TOW on the turret of a Russian-supplied T-90 tank of the Syrian Army. A TOW usually devastates its target after a direct hit, causing ammo to explode and killing the crew. The alleged T-90, however, seemed to have been saved by its reactive armor.

TOW was reportedly deployed in the Vietnam War in 1970s, as well as in Afghanistan, Iraq, and a number of other conflict zones where Washington has been engaged in recent decades. Syria has become one of the recent locations where anti-tank missiles were spotted.

Speaking to RT back in 2016, German journalist Jurgen Todenhofer suggested that the US knows that the weapons it delivers to rebels end up with terrorists. “Everybody knows that they are using allies and they are allowing allies... It doesn’t matter if a TOW rocket or a TOW missile, which is an American missile, comes [to terrorists] from another group,” he said at the time.

Dunno, what do you get out of this?

Assange willing to testify on alleged Russian hacking
Published time: 26 May, 2018 09:19
Edited time: 27 May, 2018 07:59

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is reportedly willing to testify in the investigation surrounding alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.

The claim that Assange is willing to speak to congressional investigators was made on Friday by his long-time associate, Randy Credico. Radio host Credico told MSNBC’s Ari Melber that Assange wanted to speak with Democrat Adam Schiff “clear this whole thing up.”

Credico challenged Schiff to travel to the UK to interview Assange, saying: “He’s got the credibility, Nixon went to China.” ...

...The Republican-controlled House concluded its Russia investigation earlier this year, in which they found no evidence that the Kremlin had meddled in the US election to the benefit of President Trump. However, a minority of Democrats on the committee have continued with the investigation.

Credico claims he passed on the request to Schiff earlier this week. With Schiff’s team responding “Our committee would be willing to interview Julian Assange when he is in United States custody, not before.”

Ari Melber

@AriMelber

Rep. Schiff’s office just gave us this response:

“Our committee would be willing to interview Julian Assange when he is in U.S. custody, not before.” https://twitter.com/arimelber/stat

Throughout the election campaign, WikiLeaks released thousands of emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee, which various US intelligence services claim were stolen by Russian hackers.

Authorities want to see Assange brought to the US and held in custody before interviewing the WikiLeaks founder regarding the leaking of the documents. Assange has been incommunicado since the Ecuadorian embassy cut off his internet connection in March, and this latest intervention from Credo doesn’t appear to have encouraged any ceasefire in the long-running dispute.

(Leaving aside the fact that several hand-picked individuals from some agencies hardly meets what's implied in the phrase '... various US intelligence services ...'...)

Anyone doing anything but repeating talking-points must be labeled as a 'Putin-Puppet', a 'Russian Bot', an unAmerican traitor - because Poors demanding democracy can't happen in Happy Democracy Land Where Any Billionaire Can Make Good.

Anybody else think they want to torture Julian into saying whatever will get the agony to stop?
