The Left Case Against the EU (videos)

Costas Lapavitsas, former MP of the Greek Parliament and author of The Left Case Against the EU says the left needs to have honest debates about the EU that became evident in the political struggles associated with Brexit and Grexit.

He's says a great deal more than that. He says trying to reform the EU from within is a complete waste of time and energy.

I must say, I was for Grexit and thought Yanis was very slow to realize that Tsipras was a con. Yanis is afraid of fascism taking over because he seems to think that Union is the way to prevent it. However, neoliberalism is really a form of fascism. Trying to change the EU would mean changing all national governments enough to agree to the democratization of the EU. Personally, I believe that democratizing the UK after Brexit would be a much easier path to demonstrate to other nations within the EU that leaving, democratizing, and then forming a real democratic European Union would be the much better and certainly faster approach.

"'Wall of apartheid': Israel opens a segregated road in the West Bank": Makes the fake Israel stink among the nations (video)

Makes me think of Whites Only drinking fountains in the US Deep South back in the day. Why are Americans supporting the fake Israel? The real Israel, who was Jacob before his name changed, would say that this road and wall makes his seed to stink among the nations of the Earth. He'd say such roads and walls will be the fake Israel's demise. Read his prophecy. Then consider just how stupid the "Zionist's'" biblical claims to the land really are. The land will vomit them out if the Old Testament Bible is truthful. The New Testament says it is right about it.

There’s one more kind of segregation in the West Bank – a new road where Palestinian and Israeli drivers are separated by a large wall in the middle. Dubbed ‘Apartheid Road’, it makes some Israelis feel ashamed.

Temporary arrest of Venezuelan "Opposition Leader" was a false-flag operation by the fascists who back him

Juan Guaido, before two weeks ago, was a virtually unknown 35-year-old lawmaker from La Guaira in Vargas state. He had studied at the Andres Bello Catholic University, went on to do postgrad study at George Washington University, and most notably IESA, which is basically Venezuela’s most important neoliberal think tank; basically the home of Venezuela’s Chicago Boys. He joined the very far-right party of Leopoldo Lopez called Popular Will, and he was chosen just recently at the beginning of the year, I think on January 5, as president of the National Assembly.

The Chicago Boys are the same one's who backed Pinochet in Chile, the well-known fascist.

All these guys care about is making money for themselves and the poor be damned. That's why they hate Maduro and will say anything and do anything to oust him no matter how much pain and suffering they always bring upon the poorest of the poor.

Naturally, Trump is backing the fascists because he's an ignoramus about Central and South American history of severe exploitation by US imperialist corporations. It's where the term Banana Republic came from because the United Fruit Company, a US company, controlled the governments so the company could make all the money and give kickbacks to the puppet dictators.

That's what they want for Venezuela again and for the entirety of Central and South America.

Anti-Putin Trump: The laundry list idiots refuse to repeat

Moon of Alabama published a list of all the things Trump has done against Russia and Putin.

However, Moon of Alabama is severely marginalized. Of course, this blog is even more so. All truth-seeking and -telling blogs are marginalized, however. It's why there are so many more ignoramuses now than there were just a few years ago.

Unfortunately, it will get worse before it gets better. The serpent is in its death throes. It has to do a great deal of damage before it dies, before it's killed off, before we are free.

The truth shall set us free. The mainstream, corporate, neocon/liberal media must die for that to happen.

Monsanto's glyphosate: While humanity kills the planet, the lying greedy grab before they die

Jo Lewis, the Soil Association’s policy director, said: “It is unacceptable that pesticide-industry studies receive greater recognition than scientific peer-reviewed open literature in regulatory decision-making. Whilst this paper focuses on the US EPA, similar criticisms have been made of EU decisions and we fear that outside the EU, pressure to approve pesticides will increase.”

NATO Expansion: What Gorbachev Heard (and why Putin bemoaned the breakup of the USSR)

The documents show that Gorbachev agreed to German unification in NATO as the result of this cascade of assurances, and on the basis of his own analysis that the future of the Soviet Union depended on its integration into Europe, for which Germany would be the decisive actor. He and most of his allies believed that some version of the common European home was still possible and would develop alongside the transformation of NATO to lead to a more inclusive and integrated European space, that the post-Cold War settlement would take account of the Soviet security interests. The alliance with Germany would not only overcome the Cold War but also turn on its head the legacy of the Great Patriotic War.

But inside the U.S. government, a different discussion continued, a debate about relations between NATO and Eastern Europe. Opinions differed, but the suggestion from the Defense Department as of October 25, 1990 was to leave “the door ajar” for East European membership in NATO.

And the professional liars won but lost their souls in the process.

Now, if the West could have been trusted and had lived up to its word, Putin would have been fine with it all, as Russia would have been fully integrated into a trustworthy sphere rather than dumped on by greedy, lying, callous, Western plutocrats.

U.S. Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., issues coded white supremacy regarding Black Lives Matter

Coded white supremacy:

He continued that there was “clear-cut proof” that many of these efforts were aimed at suppressing African-American voters.

“Did they use that polling data to guide the Russian social media efforts to suppress African-American vote? We don’t know the answer to that yet. I would hope Mueller has got more indication, but that is a very real question.”

(Source)

You see there Warner more than insinuating the people of Black Lives Matter were so stupid as to not know the very reason for why they started BLM in the first place but rather needed supposed Russian government operatives to come in a minuscule trickle to tell them.

God, Warner, you are such a problem rather than part of the solution to anything. How much longer do we have to put up with the likes of you? Lord, save us from these idiots and liars!

Who is this Michael Walsh, Reporter, Yahoo News really working for?

BS on every front:

Trump failed to confront Putin over the conclusion of the U.S. intelligence community that Russia launched a multifaceted campaign to shake the faith of the American people in the democratic process and to inflame prejudices within the nation.

(Source)

Trump did bring it up, though I wouldn't have. Also, the "intelligence community" came to no such conclusion. Only a handpicked few issued speculation that the Russian government may have been involved in tiny efforts. Furthermore, who has faith in the democratic process in America in the first place. The vast majority of Americans knew, and still know, that the process is completely rigged by and for the US plutocracy. What democracy? Show me.

Who is this Michael Walsh, Reporter, Yahoo News really working for? He's shilling for the plutocrats. It's blatant. He'll write whatever they want for the money, obviously. He knews the truth about the U.S. intelligence community "conclusion" but chose to report clear lies instead, as I just pointed out.
