Do Americans Dream of Capitalist Sheep?

Published 2020-08-20 22:10:10 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Opinions, United-States

By Hiroyuki Hamada – Originally at OffGuardian – Published Aug 20, 2020 FRN It’s capitalism after all. Those political parties for the rich and powerful know how to sell exploitation and subjugation by their good cop/bad cop marketing. If you don’t buy this, you get Trump. But if you buy what they sell, you get Biden, an imperialist with the crime bill, Patriot Act, and the rest of the schemes for the rich and powerful. W.E.B DuBois talked about this in 1956 saying: I shall not go to the polls. I have not registered. I believe that democracy has so far… Continue ->

Hillary Clinton Claims Trump Will Try to ‘Sneak or Steal His Way’ to a Second Term

Published 2020-08-20 21:30:17 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Opinions, Politics, United-States

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Wednesday at the DNC National Convention, Hillary Clinton repeatedly invoked her 2016 election loss as she urged Americans to vote in November — warning that only an “overwhelming” turnout at the polls could “thwart President Donald Trump’s attempts” to “sneak or steal his way” to a second term in office. The remarks from the former Democratic presidential nominee and secretary of State came on the third night of the party’s National Convention, in a prerecorded video address from her home in Chappaqua, NY, that did not shy away from the bitter nature of her defeat four… Continue ->

TikTok Unveils New Website Aimed at Dispelling US/NATO Propaganda

Published 2020-08-20 20:32:06 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, China, Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Politics, United-States

TikTok pushed back against continued efforts to exclude it from the US market, rolling out a new website in which it counters US allegations that it poses a threat to national security. The popular video-sharing app launched the site, called the “Last Sunny Corner of the Internet”, after the US gave its Chinese parent company, ByteDance, a 90-day deadline to sell its US assets or face a ban in the country, according to RT. Earlier in August, President Trump signed an executive order barring all US transactions with TikTok and another popular Chinese-owned app, WeChat. That order, set to go… Continue ->

If You Are Reading This, You Might be a Conspiracy Theorist

By John Steppling – Originally at OffGuardian – Published Aug 20, 2020 FRN   “…a permanent modern scenario: apocalypse looms…and it doesn’t occur.” Susan Sontag, AIDs and its Metaphors   “I should not misuse this opportunity to give you a lecture about, say, logic. I call this a misuse, for to explain a scientific matter to you it would need a course of lectures and not an hour’s paper. Another alternative would have been to give you what’s called a popular scientific lecture, that is a lecture intended to make you believe that you understand a thing which actually you… Continue ->

Lebanon: Pearl on the New Silk Road or Zone of Dark Age Chaos

Published 2020-08-20 17:56:08 by Matthew Ehret in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Lebanon

Many voices have been quick to enter the chorus of commentators hypothesizing the manifold possible causes of the devastating explosions which occurred on the afternoon of August 4 in Beirut which has led to mass anarchy and the surprising resignation of the government on August 11th. While I have no great novel contribution to offer in that growing array of hypotheses (which are slowly turning into noise), I would like to share an insight which addresses a too-often-overlooked aspect of the role of Lebanon in the Great Game. Before proceeding, it is useful to hold in the mind several points of… Continue ->
