Arun Gupta – Thanks, Trump! We Now Have Two Opportunities for Bold Progressive Reform

If Donald Trump’s election as president was an earthquake that leveled progressive expectations, then his transition has slammed into the political landscape with equal force. Trump is staffing his administration with far-right billionaires, conspiracy theorist generals, and extremeideologues, while upsetting relations with important powers like the United Kingdom, India, and China. It’s created a sense of doom. The unthinkable seems …

MIKE WHITNEY – The Democrats “Russia Hacking” Campaign is Political Suicide

The Democratic Party is doing incalculable damage to itself by shapeshifting into the party of baseless conspiracy theories, groundless accusations, and sour grapes. Hillary Clinton was already the most distrusted presidential candidate in party history. Now she’s become the de facto flag-bearer for the nutso-clique of aspiring propagandists at the CIA, the New York Times and Bezo’s Military Digest. How is that going …

US Intel Vets Dispute Russia Hacking Claims

A New York Times report on Monday alluding to “overwhelming circumstantial evidence” leading the CIA to believe that Russian President Vladimir Putin “deployed computer hackers with the goal of tipping the election to Donald J. Trump” is, sadly, evidence-free. This is no surprise, because harder evidence of a technical nature points to an inside leak, not hacking – by Russians …

Robert Parry – New York Times: Apologist for Power

In recent years, The New York Times has behaved as if whatever the Establishment claims is true must be true, failing to show thoughtful skepticism whether the findings are coming from a congressional report, an intelligence assessment, a criminal investigation or even an outfit as disreputable as the National Football League.

How the CIA and Other Spies Have Collaborated With Drug Traffickers All Over the World

I’m not a fan of conspiracy theories. Whenever I see someone share Facebook memes about Eurabia, chemtrails, the New World Order, Nazi UFOs or how Bush did 9/11, I roll my eyes. I mean, is it really so hard to believe that some pissed-off nut-jobs could have hijacked a plane and crashed it—instead of its being part of some over-complicated …

Paul Craig Roberts – Are You a Mind-Controlled CIA Stooge?

Do you smirk when you hear someone question the official stories of Orlando, San Bernardino, Paris or Nice? Do you feel superior to 2,500 architects and engineers, to firefighters, commercial and military pilots, physicists and chemists, and former high government officials who have raised doubts about 9/11? If so, you reflect the profile of a mind-controlled CIA stooge. The term …

Kristi Culpepper – Is Hillary Clinton Corrupt? An Archive of Financial Improprieties

There has been considerable commentary about media bias in this election, especially from folks on the right. I have had many rounds on Twitter with reporters (who cover politics and other areas) about the lack of scrutiny Clinton receives versus Trump. Granted, Trump invites media attention with his daily parade of own-goals. Coverage of Clinton, however, has become almost laughably …
