Don't forget that British "intelligence" created the White Helmets.
On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to independent reporter Vanessa Beeley on her investigations into alleged White Helmets organ trafficking and the brutality of the French police in the Yellow Vests protests.
Vanessa also discusses the utterly disgusting hypocrisy of Macron of France vis-a-vis Venezuela (which isn't even doing the things alleged against Maduro).

The Grayzone is quickly becoming the Go-To Zone. They are now engaging quite a bit in old-school investigative reporting. Old-school is exactly what the world needs right now. If you are rich and give a damn about exposing what is really going on, give them money to continue and don't tell them what to do. Of course, they also welcome donations of any size. The "rich" part is mine.
Venezuelan authorities discovered a secret cache of weapons and equipment on board a Boeing seven sixty-seven. The shipment included 19 assault weapons and 90 military grade radio antennas. Jeb Sprague entered the offices of Air 21, a shadowy air cargo company accused of ferrying those arms to Venezuela. [Source]

Public ownership is people ownership collectively rather than privately. You can't have public (socialist) ownership or people ownership without democracy. Take the democracy out, and you're left with something other than public. You're left with elitist ownership. That's why you can't correctly separate democracy and socialism. Socialism is an economic system, but democracy is inextricable. State ownership and public ownership are not synonymous.

On February 13, BBC Syria’s producer Riam Dalati came out with a statement that “After almost 6 months of investigations” he “can prove without a doubt that the Douma Hospital scene was staged” and “no fatalities had occurred in the hospital.” Dalati added that he believes that “the attack did happen” but no Sarin was used and “everything else around the attack was manufactured for maximum effect.” “I can tell you that Jaysh al-Islam ruled Douma with an iron fist. They coopted activists, doctors and humanitarians with fear and intimidation. In fact, one of the 3 or 4 people filming the scene was Dr. Abu Bakr Hanan, a “brute and shifty” doctor affiliated with Jaysh Al-Islam. The narrative was that “there weren’t enough drs [doctors]” but here is one filming and not taking part of the rescue efforts. Will keep the rest for later,” he wrote in a tweet chain on the topic. An interesting fact that despite the confidence that the attack did take place and no Sarin was used, Dalati was not able to name the chemical substance used and said that it is up to the OPCW to make conclusions. Even this halfway contradiction to the “Assad did it” version caused a wide attention because BBC was among the mainstream media organizations fueling anti-Assad hysteria when the video first appeared in April 2018. This joint propaganda effort became a formal justification of the US-led cruise missile attack on Syria. Dalati’s statement widely circulated independent media organizations and was even commented by the Russian defense and foreign ministries. [Source]

I think Moon is giving Trump one last chance to get a deal Trump and Kim can both live with. However, I more than suspect that Moon will make his own deal with Kim if Trump can't pull off a deal in a reasonable time. Moon knows that the two Korea's can't go on as they have and that they need to unify regardless of what any other nation or nations may or may not want. I believe Kim is smart enough to know all of that too.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in told U.S. President Donald Trump in a call on Tuesday that his country is willing to open economic engagement with North Korea as a "concession" if it will hasten Pyongyang's denuclearization, Moon's office said. [Source]

“Bernie Sanders endorsing Crooked Hillary Clinton is like Occupy Wall Street endorsing Goldman Sachs,” Trump tweeted.
“Trump said tonight, ’We are born free, and we will stay free,’” Sanders said. “I say to Trump: People are not truly free when they can’t afford health care, prescription drugs, or a place to live. People are not free when they cannot retire with dignity or feed their families.” [Source]

"Thousands of Poles risked being executed by the Nazis to help or shelter Jews. ...
"... Shamir, the late Israeli prime minister, had said Poles killed his father. [Source]"
Shamir is one of the racist Zionists who said Blacks are monkeys. He was also an open terrorist. He believed all Goyim (non-Jews) are a subspecies, a different race, and inherently inferior to all Jews by reason of blood, DNA, and the like. He was a Jewish supremacist.

Spare us all from Donald Trump's lying, alternate-universe imaginings about Cuba and Venezuela.
Honestly, just exactly how stupid, ignorant, and sealed off does Donald Trump think the American public is? Cuba controls Venezuela's military. I burst out laughing the instant I saw that.
At this point and as much as I hate militarism, Nicolas Maduro should invite military forces from China, Russia, India, Iran, and any other friendly nation, to come to Venezuela as peacekeeping forces: a coalition against US imperialism.
The US bypasses the UN when it wants. It's time other nations collectively stand against US economic and militaristic imperialism. Where and when better than right now in Venezuela?

Nicaragua is one of a shrinking number of countries in Central America that still offer U.S.-ally Taiwan diplomatic support over China, which considers Taiwan sacred [hogwash; Xi is an atheist] Chinese territory.
China and Taiwan have for years traded accusations of "dollar diplomacy" as they seek support around the world, offering generous aid packages in return for diplomatic recognition.
Self-ruled and democratic Taiwan now has formal relations with only 17 countries, almost all of them small and less developed nations in Central America and the Pacific, including Belize and Nauru. [Source]
"Self-ruled and democratic Taiwan" is correct. Nation-states are shameful that recognize the claim by the totalitarian dictatorship of China to ownership of Taiwan.
Democratic Taiwan is correct to monetarily support Nicaragua against anti-democratic imperialism.

We do not live under populism or democracy in the USA. We live under a self-appointed and trickster corporatist-capitalist elite lording it over the entire rest of the people.
The vast, vast majority of people incorrectly define the term "populism." Even so-called experts do. Some do it intentionally.
Populism is for the people as a whole (regardless of any other classifications) against 1) a self-appointed elite lording it over them or 2) an elite who've tricked the people into agreeing to be lorded over by them.
Populism is always democracy. It is not the people choosing one or a few to lord it over them where the people give up their power and authority to remove or replace those chosen to lead. It is not a populist move to give up populism. It is an anti-populist move to give up democracy. It is not a democratic move to vote to get rid of democracy. Democracy furthers democracy. It does not extinguish itself. Any move that extinguishes populism or democracy is anti-democratic.
I am a populist, a progressive, a democrat, a socialist, a Christian. I strive to be consistent in these things to the best of my God-given ability.
