Trends This Week – Big War Bucks in Trump’s Budget – 03.22.17

The military-first mindset that has prevailed since George W. Bush launched the War on Terror in 2001, grows under Trump. In building America’s military budget, which despite it being as large as the next seven largest military budgets around the world combined, Trump will face minimal domestic opposition. We also estimate more defense dollars funneling into Homeland Security and intelligence agencies, particularly for both domestic and foreign deep state surveillance and cyber security.

Meditations and Molotovs – 03.20.17

Bush, Blair and Co. are primarily responsible for the war in Iraq and the horrors that followed, however liberals, Democrats, and particularly the corporate news media (the same folks who gave the world President Trump) share a large portion of responsibility as well. They created the atmosphere necessary for the faux “War on Terror” (can’t wage war on a tactic), which is simply the latest justification for U.S. hegemony and imperialism. Today, let’s talk about history and why it still and always matters.

NEW SHOW ALERT: The Conspiracy Guy – 03.15.17

The Conspiracy Guy #16: A series of developments in relation to the Middle East raise concerns that the neocons are firmly in control of the Trump foreign policy agenda, including saving two ISIS leaders traded in Mosul, a 432% increase in drone strikes, and the Pentagon’s absurd declaration that Iran is “the greatest security threat in the Middle East” and warning signs that Donald’s promise to end these foreign entanglements may not be the case. The ongoing Wikileaks revelations make the case for CIA surveillance of Trump and faking “Russian hacking” overwhelming, where even leading Democrats connected to the Senate Intelligence Committee admit they have no expectation of evidence that ties the Trump campaign to Russian interference. Even Noam Chomsky tweets, “World is Laughing at claims Russia Hacked Election”. IWB (Investors Watch Blog) has published some 50 “fake news” stories on CNN alone, which confirms Wikileaks information about the mainstream media under the control of the CIA. The knowledge that the CIA can seize control of your vehicle and thereby commit a vehicular assassination sheds light on the death of Michael Hastings, who appears to have been among the first of its targets. Trump continues to shake up Washington, as a recent TIME magazine cover reflects.

Jonathan Marshall – Ukraine Sabotages Trump’s Russia Detente

Less than two weeks into office, President Trump faces one of the first big tests of his non-confrontational policy toward Russia. As new fighting erupts in Eastern Ukraine, the Kiev regime and its U.S. supporters are predictably demanding a showdown with Vladimir Putin. Initial evidence suggests, however, that the latest flare-up in this nearly three-year-old conflict was precipitated by Kiev, …

Stephen Miller – Obama’s Quiet Climate Legacy: A $5 Trillion College Divestment Campaign

Stamping my feet on the frozen ground of the National Mall on a bitter cold morning in January 2009, I didn’t think we had gathered to welcome a climate president. Foremost in my mind, at that time and in that place, were the seemingly endless war in Iraq, the reeling economy, and the uneasy footing of marriage equality. As with …

Chandra Muzaffar – Trump’s Entry Ban against Muslims: Linked To Global Warfare and The Neo-Con Agenda?

For many years, Clark and others have argued publicly that the targeted states were part of a neo-conservative agenda led by men like Dick Cheney, former US Vice-President, Donald Rumsfeld, former US Secretary of Defence, and Paul Wolfowitz, former US Deputy Secretary of Defence which sought to control and dominate WANA through the might of the US’s military power.
