Mass Protests Rock Egypt

 

Mass Protests Rock Egypt

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Washington engineered Hosni Mubarak's ouster. He fell from grace. He opposed Obama's regional agenda. It cost him dearly.

 

He became more liability than asset. Mohammed Morsi replaced him. He's Washington's man in Egypt. Hard line rule continues.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Wrongfully Indicted

On June 27, federal grand jurors indicted him on 30 counts. They did so disgracefully.

 

Charges include:

 

Biden/Obama full-court press on Snowden is a bad joke: The Real Traitors to America are in Washington and New York

By Dave Lindorff


It's hard to know whether to laugh or cry as the US goes all out to get its hands on National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden.

America: Government by Terror, Torture and Tyranny

 

America: Government by Terror, Torture and Tyranny

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

America governs lawlessly. Out-of-control rogues run things. Conditions go from bad to worse. Tyranny threatens everyone. So does possible global war.

 

Texas: America's State-Sponsored Execution Capital

 

Texas: America's State-Sponsored Execution Capital

In 1972, the Supreme Court's Furman v. Georgia ruling banned capital punishment, saying:

 

"(T)he imposition and carrying out of the death penalty constitutes cruel and unusual punishment in violation of the Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments."

Senate Passes Racist Immigration Bill

 

Senate Passes Racist Immigration Bill

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

On June 27, S. 744: Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act (BSEOIMA) passed. House members address it next.

 

On June 28, The New York Times headlined "Senate, 68 to 32, Passes Overhaul for Immigration," saying:

More Evidence of Lawless US Spying

 

More Evidence of Lawless US Spying

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Post-9/11, unprecedented domestic spying began. It did so extrajudicially. It continues under Obama. It's institutionalized. It's warrantless. It's unconstitutional. 

 

It doesn't matter. It's sweeping and all-embracing. It prioritizes everyone Washington wants monitored. Phone calls, emails, web sites visited, and other personal information is routinely collected.

 

Obama in Africa

 

Obama in Africa

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Voice of America reflects raw imperial power. It broadcasts US propaganda globally. 

 

On June 26, it said Obama "arrived in Senegal, the first stop of a three-nation African trip, focused on supporting democratic progress, and increasing US trade and investment." 

Snowden: Shooting the Messenger

 

Snowden: Shooting the Messenger

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

A previous article said challenging US lawlessness more than ever matters. Big Brother spying reflects it. Unprecedented global surveillance is official US policy.

 

Everyone can be monitored all the time, everywhere, for any reason or none at all. National security threats are fabricated. America's only enemies are ones it creates.

 

FBI Knew of Plot to Execute Occupy Activists but Did Nothing

By Dave Lindorff


Would you be shocked to learn that the FBI apparently knew that some organization, perhaps even a law enforcement agency or private security outfit, had contingency plans to assassinate peaceful protestors in a major American city — and did nothing to intervene?

Lynne Stewart Denied Compassionate Release

 

Lynne Stewart Denied Compassionate Release

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Numerous previous articles discussed her. She's one of America's best. She's a role model for others. 

 

She's wrongfully imprisoned. She got 10 years for acting responsibly. She served others honorably, ethically, and heroically. 

 

Challenging US Lawlessness

 

Challenging US Lawlessness

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

It's vital today more than ever. America's a rogue terror state. It's ruthlessly out-of-control. It spurns rule of law principles. It mocks democratic rights. It honors its worst. It persecutes its best.

 

It acts unconscionably. It threatens freedom. It menaces world peace. It endangers humanity. It's guilty of worldwide espionage on a massive, unprecedented scale.

 

Supreme Court Guts Voting Rights Act

 

Supreme Court Guts Voting Rights Act

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

America's High Court lacks legitimacy. It's supremely pro-business, anti-populist, anti-labor, and anti-rule of law fairness. It mocks democratic principles. It does so shamelessly.

 

When the official default is to lie: In Us We Have to Trust

By Dan DeWalt


“If people can't trust not only the executive branch but also don't trust Congress, and don't trust federal judges, to make sure that we're abiding by the Constitution with due process and rule of law, then we're going to have some problems here.”   


A Whole Different Class of People Here

   This one looks at yet another revelation that the military-industrial-spying 50+% of the federal government doesn't operate with the kind of oversight and accountability rules everyone else has to play by.

 

I was flabbergasted when the the Congressional Research Service reported on May 17 that the Pentagon didn’t have a clue what the 108,000 contractors the Department of Defense (DOD) has in Afghanistan were actually doing--let alone how well they were doing it.

Snowden on the Move

 

Snowden on the Move

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Where is Edward Snowden? Unanswered questions remain. Supposedly he traveled from Hong Kong to Moscow en route to Havana and Quito, Ecuador. Or did he? More on that below.

 

Washington has no sense of shame: Empty Lectures about the Sanctity of the ‘Rule of Law’

By Dave Lindorff


The spectacle of the US threatening Hong Kong, China, Russia and now little Ecuador with all manner of reprisals if they don’t respect the “rule of law” and hand over whistleblower Edward Snowden to the US, is delicious to watch.


America: Police State Ruthlessness Writ Large

 

America: Police State Ruthlessness Writ Large

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Cold-blooded barbarity reflects US policy. Democracy's more illusion than reality. Rule of law principles don't matter. They're systematically spurned. 

 

Dissent's increasingly targeted. Freedom's imperiled. Obama's ruthless. He exceeds the worst of George Bush. He's waging war on truth-tellers. He targeted more whistleblowers than all his predecessors combined. 

Washington v. Edward Snowden Update

 

Washington v. Edward Snowden Update

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Events are fast-moving. On June 23, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region's (HKSAR) press release said:

 

"Mr Edward Snowden left Hong Kong today (June 23) on his own accord for a third country through a lawful and normal channel."

 

Snowden’s escape: China, Hong Kong and Russia Foil US Attempt to Silence NSA Whistleblower

By Dave Lindorff


Now that Edward Snowden is safely away out of the clutches of the US police state, at least for now, let’s take a moment to contemplate how this one brave man’s principled confrontation with the Orwellian US government has damaged our national security state.


Edward Snowden Charged Under the Espionage Act

 

Edward Snowden Charged Under the Espionage Act

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

On June 21, Obama's Justice Department charged Snowden with espionage. It did so ruthlessly, irresponsibly and unconstitutionally. It wrongfully accused him of violating 1917 Espionage Act provisions.

 

It was enacted during WW I. It's long ago outdated. It has no current relevance. It belongs in history's dustbin.

 

Obama: The Worst of Nixon/Bush II Writ Large

 

Obama: The Worst of Nixon/Bush II Writ Large

Obama's a war criminal multiple times over. He bears full responsibility for genocidal crimes.

 

In a May London Guardian interview, Cornel West said:

 

General Wesley Clark: Whistleblower, Warrior

 

General Wesley Clark: Whistleblower, Warrior

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

One a warrior, always one. Clark hasn't forgotten. His credentials are notorious. He's a war criminal. He's also a whistleblower. More on that below. 

 

He formerly commanded NATO. From March 24 - June 19, 1999, he led naked aggression against Yugoslavia. For 78 days, hundreds of warplanes attacked mercilessly. About 3,000 sorties were flown. 

 

Washington Funds Secret Israeli Ballistic Missile Base

On June 3, McClatchy's foreign staff headlined "US publishes details of missile base Israel wanted kept secret." More on that below.

 

Obama's Nuclear Arms Reduction Hoax

 

Obama's Nuclear Arms Reduction Hoax

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Jack Kennedy was America's last peace president. He underwent a spiritual transformation. He changed from cold warrior to peacemaker. 

 

He wanted nuclear weapons abolished. He urged "general and complete disarmament." He wanted force-fed Pax Americana ended.

 

Obama's Berlin Moment

 

Obama's Berlin Moment

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Obama's unwelcome in Berlin. He's not wanted. Many Berliners aren't pleased he came. His rhetoric fell short. Doublespeak duplicity is hollow. It doesn't sell well.

 

On July 29, 2008, 200,000 Germans cheered him. They did so in central Berlin's Tiergarten. They hoped he'd change Bush/Cheney policies. 

 

Who knew? The government snoops have been keeping us safe?: Cranking Up the Washington Lie Machine

By Dave Lindorff


Just for the sake of argument, let's suspend our disbelief for a moment and pretend (I know it's a stretch) that the Obama administration and the apologists for the nation's spy apparatus in Congress, Democratic and Republican, are telling us the gods' honest truth.

Fast-Tracking Toward War on Syria

 

Fast-Tracking Toward War on Syria

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

America's run by sociopaths. They're out-of-control criminals. They're traitors. They menace humanity. They violate their sacred oaths of office. 

 

Presidents "do solemnly swear (or affirm to) faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of (their) Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
