Escalated US War on Syria Likely

globalresearch - Fri, 06/02/2017 - 09:33

In March 2011, Obama launched war on Syria, using ISIS, al-Nusra and other terrorists as imperial foot soldiers.

The aim then and now is destroying Syrian sovereignty, ousting Assad, replacing him with a pro-Western puppet, eliminating an Israeli rival, isolating

Trump Got Advice From Fox's Kimberly Guilfoyle Before Withdrawing From Paris Accord

crooksandliars - Fri, 06/02/2017 - 09:00

Kimberly Guilfoyle deliberately dropped a bombshell on her Fox News colleagues Thursday night when she just happened to mention that Donald Trump had called her this morning to discuss a range of issues. Guilfoyle also revealed that she had reassured Trump about his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement - several hours in advance of his official announcement.

Media Matters caught Guilfoyle's startling disclosure which occurred in the middle of a discussion about Trump's decision to withdraw from the climate agreement:

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE (CO-HOST): I don't think this is a deal that anybody should be crying about. Like we said, it's nonbinding, and the United States is already a clean energy, oil and gas leader. So, we can keep doing what we're doing, we can keep reducing our emissions. Why would we in fact put ourselves at an economic disadvantage, giving and subsidizing an economic windfall to other countries, in sort of a climate redistribution of wealth scheme? It makes no sense to me.

I think he did the brave and courageous thing, and in fact, I told him that this morning at 8AM, when he called. And I spoke to him about it, and this was something very much so on his mind, but he seemed like--

GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): Wait a second, who called you?

GUILFOYLE: The president.

GUTFELD: Why?

CNN's New Day Challenges Spelling Champ To Spell 'Covfefe'

crooksandliars - Fri, 06/02/2017 - 08:22

Donald Trump's nonsense word in a tweet he made last week continues to be rich fodder for the press, with Scripp's National Spelling Bee champion Ananya Vinay asked to spell "covfefe". And Despite Sean Spicer's protestations that "The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant" by his gibberish, the "word" proved to be a challenge for Ananya.

Source: The Hill

Newly-crowned National Spelling Bee champion Ananya Vinay was asked by the hosts of CNN’s “New Day” to spell one final word — “covfefe.”

“We have a challenge for you,” host Alisyn Camerota said. “We’d like you to spell a word. It’s recently become popular. Do you know the word ‘covfefe’?”

Vinay asked for the definition of the word. Camerota said covfefe means “a nonsense word made up by the President of the United States in a late-night tweet” and that its language of origin was “gibberish.”

Vinay then asked for the word’s part of speech, to which co-host Chris Cuomo replied “it could be a noun, but may be used as a verb and as an insult.”

Scarborough Says Bannon Is Leaking The Kushner/Russia Stories

crooksandliars - Fri, 06/02/2017 - 08:00

You thought Game of Thrones was the ultimate in cutthroat palace intrigue? Hah! Today on Morning Joe, we have the not-so-surprising news that the person leaking stories to weaken Jared Kushner is... Steve Bannon.

Color me shocked.

"Mika, there's all this talk about leaks from the CIA, leaks from the FBI," Scarborough said.

"When it comes to Jared Kushner, the leaks are all coming from inside the White House," he said.

"According to my sources, Bannon was bragging to journalists a month and a half ago that he didn't have to worry about Kushner and he was going to sideline Kushner because of Russia -- that he had information on the Russian investigation and that he was going to sideline Jared Kushner," he said.

"Two days after I heard this, two days! Front page New York Times story about the links between Kushner and Russia. A coincidence? Absolutely not. Steve Bannon has been leaking, I believe, based on everything that I've heard, has been leaking these stories.

"People very close to Steve Bannon were telling me before the stories were leaked that he was going to be leaking these stories. He has a job and wants to keep it and will do what's necessary to do that."

Mika replied, "We have bad forces competing with each other inside the White House, one could argue."

John Judge Interview Videos

American Everyman - Fri, 06/02/2017 - 07:25

by Scott Creighton

“I tell people you can call me a conspiracy theorist if you call everyone else a coincidence theorist,” John P. Judge

Johnnie Favorite recommended I take a look at the work of John P. Judge, an independent researcher and activist for decades. John resume of resistance, real resistance, is long. Dates back to his teens really. His entire life was dedicated to exposing the inner workings of the Deep State and countering their endless barrage of propaganda.

“John Judge was a co-founder of 911 CitizensWatch, a grassroots watchdog group demanding transparency and a thorough investigation by the National Commission on Terrorist Acts Upon the United States. John was also a co-founder of Committee for an Open Archives, Coalition on Political Assassinations (COPA), and the Committee for High School Options and Information on Careers, Education and Self-Improvement (CHOICES), a group countering military recruitment in the schools and providing civilian alternatives. John was on the board of the Washington Peace Center and was an activist opposing war, racism and militarism since the 1960s. John was an independent researcher and lecturer on political assassinations, covert operations, hidden history, and the rise of fascism in America, and made himself available as a speaker for presentations, forums, and media interviews” Radical (dot) org

John passed away in 2014 at the age of 66. Cynthia McKinney wrote this about John in 2012. It’s high praise coming from someone with as much character as she has:

“… John Judge is a researcher: inside John’s brain is a compendium of government policies, programs, and actions that have profoundly affected the way our government works. Ignorance of what John researches impedes the fullest exercise possible of citizenship in this country. Every U.S. citizen should be aware of what John researches. But because John is not a Member of the academy, and does not publish in academic journals, John Judge is perhaps one of the most important unknown historians of our generation…” Cynthia McKinney

Cynthia says in the video below:

“Assassination takes place all the time. Political assassination. Character assassination. And worse. And in just one reading of the Cointelpro papers, you can see all the different forms of political assassinations they use” Cynthia McKinney

How true is that? How relevant is it today as the red-baiting New McCarthyites scream new “Trump is owned by Russia!!!” propaganda daily?

You can find a record of some of John Judge’s writings, here.

“I agree with Ishmael Reed who says in Mumbo Jumbo, “The real history of the world is a history of competing conspiracies.” John J. Judge

Remarkably, he was so influential as a researcher and “conspiracy theorist”, John garnered a sort of obituary in the Washington Post when he passed away.

“Through years of investigation and activism, Mr. Judge developed a devoted following in the community of skeptics who question official or commonly accepted narratives of the past. He co-founded and directed the Coalition on Political Assassinations, an organization whose activities include investigating the deaths in the 1960s of John Kennedy, his brother Robert F. Kennedy, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and black nationalist leader Malcolm X. News outlets, with some frequency, featured Mr. Judge and his work.

He turned his Washington home into a repository of thousands of volumes and documents on political assassinations and other matters, supporting himself over the decades through odd jobs and fundraising work. He was once described as a “professional conspiracist,” but he considered himself an “alternate historian,” according to his Web site, judgeforyourself.org.

“I tell people you can call me a conspiracy theorist if you call everyone else a coincidence theorist,” Mr. Judge quipped to the publication National Journal.” Washington Post

Unlike a lot of the so-called “alternative” researchers and activists out there today, John wasn’t former CIA or NSA or NASA or career military. In fact, he led a program to help young underprivileged kids find ways to plan their futures WITHOUT joining the army.

Why shoot Reagan? Because there are divisions within the class. Because the class is not monolithic. Because you ascend Bush into 6 terms.” John Judge

As far as I can tell, his life was dedicated to activism and research in pursuit of the better country and world so many of us envision.

“An avid public speaker, Judge never spoke about himself but rather, humbly retained a tireless devotion to the search for truth beyond the official government or mainstream media record. Until his final days, Judge was a seeker of truth and justice of the first order. He is irreplaceable in the annals of serious research and documentation.” Assassination of JFK

Below the fold there are 4 videos. The first three come from Assassination of JFK Youtube channel. The last is an open forum discussion with Cynthia McKinney.

John Judge Speaks Part 1 – 2002

John Judge Speaks Part 2- 2002

John Judge Speaks Part 3 – 2002

Political Assassinations & Their Relevance Today – 2012

Mick Mulvaney Wants To Destroy The CBO Republicans Created

crooksandliars - Fri, 06/02/2017 - 07:00

Trump's OMB Director is not pleased that the AHCA, a horrific and rushed healthcare bill that was passed only for political reasons was scored so poorly by the CBO, so he wants to destroy the institution.

In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Mulvaney said "the day of the institution as an authoritative non-partisan arbiter of legislation "has probably come and gone."

Under Trump, if he's not happy with the results he gets, don't fix the real problem, legislation or executive order, just try and fire those responsible for disagreeing with you.

Mulvanely is claiming "political bias" is at he root cause of all the CBO's problems and can't be trusted.

Without the CBO, he argued that multiple entities could do their own scoring, using the hypothetical example of a proposed regulation to eliminate a type of light bulb.

Black-Hating Negroes and Their Uses: David Clarke at Homeland Security

American Everyman - Fri, 06/02/2017 - 06:35

by Glen Ford, BAR

David Clarke, the sheriff of Milwaukee County who appears slated for a top post at the Department of Homeland Security, has made himself valuable to the White Man’s Party through ostentatious display of hatred and contempt for his fellow Blacks. Clarke is the go-to Negro for denunciations of Black Lives Matter (“Black Lies Matter,” in his words) as Islamic State sympathizers who should be “scooped” up, charged with treason and detained “indefinitely at Gitmo.” Clarke shares his repugnant political specialty with a debased cast of domestic and international characters, including presidents Yoweri Museveni and Salva Kiir, of Uganda and South Sudan, respectively, and Roy Innis, the late former leader of CORE, the Congress of Racial Equality.

All three of the living professional Black-hating-Negroes make themselves readily identifiable as eager allies of American-style white supremacy by wearing huge black cowboy hats. Yoweri Museveni, Ronald Reagan’s favorite African since seizing power in Uganda in 1986, turned his country’s army into a central African military appendage of U.S. imperialism. Under Washington’s direction, Museveni incorporated minority Tutsis from neighboring Rwanda into his armed forces, then supported their 1990 invasion of Rwanda, which led to mass tribal slaughter and the overthrow of the majority Hutu government, followed by the invasion and occupation of the Democratic Republic of Congo by Rwandan Tutsi forces under Paul Kagame, resulting in the death of more than six million Congolese, and still counting. (Kagame should also wear a cowboy hat, but prefers the military beret.) As mercenaries of U.S. Empire, both Museveni and Kagame contribute troops to virtually every western-funded “peace keeping” operation on the continent…
