Jon Queally – Gathering Up the Generals, Clinton and Trump Compete for Best Imperialist

Exactly how many retired generals will it take to win the U.S. presidency in 2016? On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced how 95 former generals and admirals have given the Democratic candidate their support.

Lawrence Davidson – What Israel’s Actions Have Wrought

It has been 71 years since the end of the Holocaust. Initially, the world took that horror as a serious lesson, and the international community created laws against acts of genocide.

Leid Stories—Dr. Gerald Horne’s Radically Different View of Election 2016—08.10.16

This year’s presidential election, we’re constantly told, is, and ever will be, “historic.” Thinking minds immediately should erect their best defenses, for U.S. history has a very peculiar history; it almost never tells the whole story, and its chief purpose is to secure and undergird the interests of the power elite.

Nadia Prupis – Spying’s New Frontier: Private Firm Collects Data on ‘Every American Adult’

The fight for internet privacy has focused much of its attention on government surveillance, but mass data collection is done by private companies as well—and one such firm has “centralized and weaponized” all that information for its customers, Bloomberg reports on Friday.
