Stephen Lendman: Russia Represents The Threat Of A Good Example

Russia Represents the Threat of a Good Example

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)

Russia and America are world's apart on major issues mattering most. Differences between both countries are stark.

Vladimir Putin is arguably the world's preeminent leader. Trump and neocons infesting Washington are despised by freedom-loving people everywhere.

Putin deplores war. He's a world class peace champion, favoring mutual cooperation among all nations, advocating multi-world polarity, opposing US imperial madness.

America wages endless wars of aggression, targeting sovereign independent states it doesn't control, seeking unchallenged global dominance, no matter the human cost - defiling democratic values and rule of law principles, operating solely by its own.

Putin and Trump are polar opposites. Russia's leader is forthright, saying what he means and meaning what he says.

Trump and other US leaders are serial liars, ruthless belligerents, waging war on humanity at home and abroad.

Millions of corpses attest to America's barbarism, unprecedented in world history, causing more harm to more people over a longer duration than any other nation.

The Russian Federation never launched aggression against another country. America does it all the time, waging endless wars against one country after another, currently in multiple theaters - likely more planned.

Lunatic fringe John McCain gives neocon extremism a bad name. His June 29 USA Today op-ed featured beginning-to-end disinformation, deception and Big Lies.

McCain: Vladimir Putin's Russia is on the offensive against Western democracy…(He) attacked America's 2016, attempted to interfere in France's 2017 election, and is expected to do the same in German and other future European elections."

Fact: America and other Western nations are plutocracies, not democracies. Ukraine is a US-orchestrated, coup d'etat established, Nazi-infested, fascist dictatorship in Europe's heartland.

Fact: Not a shred of evidence suggests Russia interfered in foreign elections - not America's, Europe's or anywhere else anytime.

McCain: "…Russian intelligence operatives plotted to overthrow the democratically elected government of Montenegro and murder its prime minister" - claiming Moscow views its EU and NATO membership threatening.

Fact: Even for extremist McCain, this rant exceeds the absurd. Tiny Montenegro's population is less than a million.

Fact: Its military size and strength are minuscule, active duty personnel numbering less than 2,000. It couldn't win the battle of Chicago if waged.

Fact: Its NATO membership has no military significance. If accepted, its EU membership would be of no political or economic importance. It's a drop in the European ocean.

Fact: The notion of Russia plotting the "murder of its prime minister" is pure hateful lunacy. It's hard imagining why anyone takes McCain seriously, especially his Senate colleagues.

McCain: "…Putin will do whatever it takes to achieve his ambition to restore the Russian empire."

Fact: Putin is a non-belligerent, America under either right wing of its duopoly governance a serial aggressor.

McCain concocted a pure fiction plot, claiming "armed men, recruited by Russian GRU agents and wearing police uniforms (planned to) ambush and kill members of Montenegro's Special Anti-Terrorist Unit to prevent them from interfering with the coup."

So-called plotters would storm parliament, usurp control and form a new government, McCain ranted.

No coup plot existed, no Russian-orchestrated plans to storm parliament and usurp control, no plan to kill the prime minister.

McCain's scenario was smoke and mirrors rubbish, willful deception, anti-Russia hate-mongering.

No responsible editor would touch this fake news story. To its shame, USA Today featured it, making the publication complicit with McCain's Big Lie.

McCain: Putin aims "to weaken the United States, to destabilize Europe, to break the NATO alliance, to undermine confidence in Western values, and to erode any and all resistance to his dangerous view of the world."

Fact: If all countries had leaders like Putin, peace and stability would replace endless wars of aggression worldwide - waged by America and its rogue allies.

Humanity could exhale for the first time since the dawn of the nuclear age - a sword of Damocles threatening mass extinction.

Nikki Haley's Recklessly Belligerent Remarks

Nikki Haley's Recklessly Belligerent Remarks

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org

Trump's neocon UN envoy sounds like Samantha Powers on steroids - her hostility toward Russia, Syria and world peace evident from her reckless comments.

In prepared Wednesday remarks before House Foreign Affairs Committee members, she sounded like an out-of-control war goddess.

She lied saying "(i)n early April, (Syria) dropped chemical weapons on Syrian children," belligerently adding:

"We drew a red line. If the UN would not act collectively, the United States would act alone. And we did" - failing to explain attacking Syria's Shayrat airbase was unprovoked naked US aggression.

She railed irresponsibly against North Korea's right of self-defense, justifiably fearful of America launching war on the country for the second time since June 1950.

Citing "America's values," she failed to explain they focus on achieving unchallenged global dominance - aggressive wars and color revolutions its strategies of choice.

She lied claiming America is "dedicated…to the protection of human rights…" No nation is a more egregious abuser, none more hostile to world peace, stability and security, none more contemptuous of rule of law principles.

She threatened the UN for justifiably criticizing Israeli viciousness, shamelessly claiming the country is "unfairly target(ed)."

She lied calling Iran and Hamas "the true threats in the region." She belligerently said "a healthy Syria (isn't possible) with Assad. You can't have Assad in power with the healthy Syria" - affirming Washington's lawless US regime change objective.

On Thursday, in response to a phony US claim about a planned Syrian CW attack, Russia's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova called the provocative accusation "a harbinger of a new intervention" - escalating conflict Russia continues going all-out to resolve diplomatically.

Hostile US claims aren't new, she added, explaining "Washington has voiced new baseless accusations against the Syrian leadership that allegedly (it's) planning a new chemical attack."

"We know about these statements, which Washington officials have refused to support with facts. And we don't know what data was used to make such conclusions."

"The situation resembles a large-scale provocation both in military and information terms, which is directed not only against the Syrian authorities, but also against Russia."

In January 2016, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) announced the elimination of Syrian CWs under its supervision. None remain.

Zakharova explained Moscow has intelligence indicating preparations for new US-led provocations in Syria - without further elaboration or indication how Russia intends responding if they occur.

Separately on Thursday, Vladimir Putin explained "growing activity by foreign intelligence agencies against Russia and (its) allies."

"This includes new ways of collecting and stove-piping information, cyberattacks and attempts to recruit new agents in order to get access to data on Russia's economic, defense and resource capabilities," he said.

Foreign nations and extremist elements are trying to destabilize, contain, weaken and isolate Russia - "challenges (it) has to grapple with," Putin stressed.

"It's no secret that…intelligence agencies of a number of countries are involved" - America, NATO and their rogue allies Putin obviously means.

They try influencing domestic policies, he added. Protecting Russia's "sovereign development, security and stability" are the top priorities of its government.

US-dominated NATO is a serial aggressor. Russia, China and their allies are humanity's best hope to successfully contest its imperial madness.

Brazil's Rand Paul: Can Libertarianism Fix Crime And Corruption?

BRAZIL'S RAND PAUL: CAN LIBERTARIANISM FIX CRIME AND CORRUPTION?

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE
Because the left is collapsing, and this is what might fill the vacuum.
By Anna Jean Kaiser
THE DAILY DOSEJUN 28 2017

Fabio Ostermann’s office in the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre boasts a bookshelf with rows dedicated to Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman, Ludwig von Mises. On top sits a copy of the American Declaration of Independence, a ukulele and a cartoon blow-up doll of Brazil’s former president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, dressed in the black-and-white stripes of a prison uniform, sporting an inmate’s number.

Over the former president’s mouth, it reads “Menos Marx, mais Mises” — less Marx, more Mises, the latter referring to libertarian pioneer Ludwig von Mises.

Ostermann, 32, is a key player in Brazil’s growing libertarian movement, which has risen against a backdrop of the country’s collapsing left. He’s led youth groups on college campuses, co-organized some of the country’s largest-ever protests — which may have helped impeach the country’s leftist president, Dilma Rousseff. Now, he’s the president of the Social Liberty Party in his home state, which he is reforming to defend classical libertarian ideals.

He ran and lost for mayor of his hometown of Porto Alegre, but now has his eye on a lower house seat in 2018 — and on launching a larger campaign in next year’s presidential and congressional elections to occupy the political vacuum created by the left’s disintegration with a rebranded, youthful, American-influenced libertarianism. Ostermann’s brand of libertarianism calls for widespread privatizations, deregulation of the economy and open trade markets. He’s pro marijuana legalization and favors gay marriage. Sound familiar? For Americans, it should: Ostermann was trained by the United States’ most influential libertarian organizations — the Cato Institute, the Atlas Network and the Charles Koch Foundation. The latter, a grant-distributing organization, was founded by Charles Koch, one of the famous Koch brothers, who own the second-largest privately held company in the U.S. and are best known for using their vast fortune to support right-wing political causes.

IT AMERICANIZES OUR POLITICAL DEBATE.
CAMILA ROCHA, PH.D. STUDENT STUDYING THE EMERGENCE OF LIBERTARIAN THINK TANKS IN BRAZIL Ostermann, once a left-leaning law student (like many young people at the time, as he puts it), found his way into the D.C. “think tank scene,” as he says, after finishing university in Brazil. He took a course on libertarian theory with Cato and earned a Koch summer fellowship to work at the Atlas Network. Newly evangelized, Ostermann returned to Brazil in 2009, where he co-founded Estudantes pela Liberdade — the Brazilian chapter of Students for Liberty, another U.S.-based libertarian group.

The organization had matured in time for 2013’s mass protests over increasing bus fares, dissatisfaction with government services and Rousseff’s reelection. “We saw an opportunity,” he says. From that came the Free Brazil Movement. They started rallying hard to impeach Rousseff. On March 15, 2015, Free Brazil and other organizations mobilized 3 million people to protest in 229 cities across the country — the largest protest since the fall of the military dictatorship in 1985. The rest is history. Free Brazil remains controversial, in part for protesting Rousseff so heavily without levying the same criticisms against right-wing President Michel Temer. Ostermann has since left. The group has splintered, and he reflects that the group became too partisan, with some of its leaders cozying up to traditional political parties.

Advertisement This makes Ostermann part of an increasing number of Brazilians who are coming of age in the image of American libertarian think tankers. Atlas, for instance, holds an increasing presence in Brazil, where it offers several online and in-person seminars in Portuguese. Skeptics see the ideological cultural exchange as nothing new. “I think it’s just continuing a tradition; Americans have always manipulated us,” says Juremir Machado da Silva, a columnist and radio show host, citing the U.S. alignment with Brazil’s military dictatorship.

Camila Rocha, a Ph.D. student at the University of São Paulo who’s studying the emergence of U.S.-style libertarian think tanks in Brazil and Latin America, says Atlas teaches young Brazilians how to found think tanks, manage libertarian organizations, develop an internet presence and, crucially, become what she calls a “polemista” (a polemic figure) via op-eds and media appearances. Between Atlas and Cato, they’ve trained many of the leaders of Brazil’s new right wing. “It Americanizes our political debate; it brings those proposals to the Brazilian context,” Rocha says. “Libertarianism itself is something that never even existed in Brazil, this ultra-individualist vision.” She cites the calls for privatization sans regulation. “And they call for privatizations of sectors in Brazil that have always had the consensus they should be public and free, like education and health care.”

But American-imported or not, Ostermann speaks about policy in his national context. If elected, Ostermann’s first policy order of business would be the mass privatization of Brazil’s $70 billion-plus social safety net. He supports voucher systems for private schools and health care. “I don’t think the government has the competence or capacity to manage these services in a country as chaotic as Brazil,” he says, though he’s happy to let the government spend on sanitation, security and “basic infrastructure.” (That doesn’t include soccer stadiums, he adds, in sardonic reference to some $25 billion spent on the World Cup and the Olympics in 2014 and 2016 — though that number is frequently contested in Brazil.)

When talking marijuana legalization, he situates his pro stance in response to Brazil’s bloody drug landscape, where drug crime causes near-constant violence in urban centers. In 2015, Brazil had more than 56,000 homicides, landing it the world’s highest murder rate in terms of absolute numbers, which in large part is due to drug-related crimes. In turn, Brazil also has the world’s fourth-largest prison population. “To leave drug traffickers and cartels to have a monopoly over marijuana is a crime against society and an ineffective way to spend taxpayer money,” he says.

Ostermann defends this latter stance despite the fact that it may have lost him his race last year. It’s his obsession with ideological purity that might keep him and his party from finding success. “I think Brazil isn’t prepared for this — Brazilian politics is very polarized right now. It’s black and white, right or left,” says da Silva. “To voters, I think he comes across as too in the middle; he wants to be both at the same time … this discourse in Brazil doesn’t stick.”

Lancet Reports On Inequality In US Health Care

Lancet Reports on Inequality in US Healthcare
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org

The UK-based, 1823-founded Lancet is the oldest, best known, and highly respected medical journal.

In early April, it examined the effects of racial discrimination, mass incarceration, economic inequality and lack of universal healthcare as factors in declining US health outcomes.

Affordability puts proper care for serious illnesses increasingly out of reach for tens of millions.

The Lancet explained a growing survival gap between rich and poor Americans - a difference of up to 15 years, US marketplace medicine responsible for a healthcare crisis affecting millions of households.

These and other issues were addressed in five papers titled "America: Equity and Equality in Health" - data and analysis provided by prominent US health researchers, vital information ignored by Congress, hellbent on retaining dysfunctional marketplace medicine under Obamacare or Trumpcare.

Republicans want a fundamental human right denied to tens of millions because of increasing proper healthcare unaffordability.

America has the world's best system - based on the ability to pay, millions more to be left uncovered under Trumpcare than under Obamacare if enacted into law - America's poor and low income suffering most, a majority of the nation's population.

America's wealth disparity is the severest among developed nations. The top 1% controls as much as the bottom 90%.

Extreme poverty is a national catastrophe, millions of Americans attempting to survive on around $2 per capita per day - more than double the number since the neoliberal 90s.

Economic inequality goes hand-in-hand with inequality in health. Instead of efforts by the world's richest country to remedy things, GOP hardliners want them worsened.

Uninsured and inadequately insured US households can't afford the high cost of vital healthcare for expensive illnesses, diseases and injuries. Their deprivation and higher mortality than well-off American is the shame of the nation.

House and Senate versions of Trumpcare make America's dysfunctional system far worse - a crime against humanity if enacted into law.

Structural racism and inequality in healthcare define how America is run - for its privileged class exclusively at the expense of most others.

Being Black or Latino is associated with adverse birth outcomes, higher infant mortality, increased risk of serious chronic diseases and decreased longevity.

According to New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Dr. Mary Basset, "(r)acial and ethnic health disparities in the United States are well documented, but structural racism is rarely discussed as a root cause."
It "refers to all the ways in which systems foster inequitable outcomes, whether in housing, education, employment, media, health care or the criminal justice system. All have profound effects on health. If we don't address structural racism, health inequities will persist."

One of my earliest articles was titled "The US Gulag Prison System: The Shame of the Nation."

America has the world's largest domestic prison system - besides its global gulag, Guantanamo the tip of the iceberg. Around 2.2 million US citizens are incarcerated.

About two-thirds are Blacks and Latinos, many on charges too minor to matter, often possession of illicit drugs, many others imprisoned despite innocence of any crime, including on death row.

Mass incarceration greatly affects inequality in health. Incarcerated individuals have increased vulnerability to infectious diseases and chronic illness.

Prison healthcare is deplorable, woefully inadequate. Incarceration is a permanent black mark against inmates when released, adversely affecting their ability to earn a living, preventing them from being able to afford proper healthcare coverage - locked in a "health-poverty trap."

Since the late 1970s, incomes for poor, low and middle-income households haven't kept up with inflation. Since 2000, they declined. America's most significant growth industry is poverty.

According to Lancet researchers, reasons poor and low-income households, along with less educated ones, have poor health outcomes include:

"(1) less access to technological innovations in medicine and information about complex health risks and preventive behaviors;

(2) increasing geographical segregation that creates inequalities in access to health care;

(3) reduced economic mobility and increased persistence of poverty;

(4) rapidly increasing incarceration rates; and

(5) the erosion of public subsidies for health insurance and other health inputs, and increasing exposure to market prices."

Increasing unaffordability of proper healthcare under America's marketplace system jeopardizes the health and well-being of tens of millions of households.

It shows the world's richest nation doesn't give a damn about the welfare of its most vulnerable - on their own, sink or swim.

Field McConnell: Boeing's Plan For Autonomous Flight - OMG! Do They Not Learn Anything?!

To Whomever it concerns:

• Boeing had the MB-47 pilot-less 6 engine swept wing jet in 1953. My father had a relationship to it.

• Boeing had the QB-47 pilot-less 6 engine swept wing jet in 1961. My father had a relationship to it.

• Boeing had 6 droned jets on 9/11; myself and Kristine Marcy had a relationship to it.

• MH370 was droned on 8 March 2014 and Malaysia and MAS called me to Malaysia to explain. I went.

• MH17 was also a droned B777 registration 9M-MR0

When Boeing says they are ‘testing’ a pilot-less transport category aircraft….they are not truthful (READ BELOW).

Perhaps those truly interested should review Civil Case 1:08-1600 (RMC) which exposed the pilot-less Boeings used on 9/11.

I am certain that Suzanne Kalfus and James Johnson of ALPA could testify as could FAA Huerta, Babbitt and ( redacted ). The last 4 presidents of ALPA were aware and suppressed also: Randy Babbitt, Duane Woerth,

Jon Prater and Lee Moak. Misprision of Felony wrongful death anyone?

Both Team Trump and Russian Defense Attache have received this communique earlier.

5 Reasons America Should Not Fight Iran, Russia, And Assad

Jack Ma, Founder Of Alibaba: Shifting Technology Could Lead To WW III

by Josie Cox

Chinese business magnate Jack Ma said that evolving technologies are likely to pose a threat to more than just the job market and could in fact trigger a Third World War.

In an interview with CNBC, the billionaire chairman of Alibaba said that world leaders have a duty to educate people to prevent the pain caused by a rapid rise in automation and artificial intelligence.

"The first technology revolution caused World War I," he said. "The second technology revolution caused World War II. This is the third technology revolution."

He said that the opportunities that he sees in the evolution of AI and in globalisation are the reasons he travels so much. He says that on his many trips he is “talking to all the government and state leaders and telling them move fast”.

“If they do not move fast, there's going to be trouble," he said. “My belief is that you have to repair the roof while it is still functioning."

But he also said that progress in AI could have the benefit of allowing people to travel more and spend less time working in future.

“I think in the next 30 years, people only work four hours a day and maybe four days a week," Mr Ma said. "My grandfather worked 16 hours a day in the farmland and [thought he was] very busy. We work eight hours, five days a week and think we are very busy.

But he said that he does not like the idea of machines “like humans”.

"We should make sure the machine can do things that human beings cannot do."

This is not the first time that Mr Ma has issued a technology-related warning.

In April he cautioned that society should prepare for decades of pain as the internet disrupts the economy.

In a speech to an entrepreneurship conference in Zhengzhou, China, he said that the education system needs to be adapted to help soften the blow of automation and the rise of the internet economy.

Mr Ma is the richest person in Asia and one of the 20 richest in the world, thanks to the booming success of e-commerce giant Alibaba.

WHAT I AM DISAPPOINTED IN

by James Hufferd, Ph.D.
Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization

+ + +

Many are noticing that life in the U.S.A. isn’t what it used to be. I realize that no one gives a rip what I’m disappointed in, but I’m here to try to convince you that maybe you should. To that end, I’ve formulated a list of 12 rather specific attitudes or prevailing habits of mind in the current U.S. in particular I find not only bothersome, but fraught with unprecedented negative, already borne-out implications.

In compiling my annotated list, which I’ll present in its entirety below, I’ve tried to avoid generational complaints that can only pigeonhole me, and inherent differences in culture favoring one tendency over another. Note that I’m not here to partake in “intellectual showmanship”, as one critic charged, but to state what’s on my mind as best I can. Agree or disagree. My motive? Always, to motivate you.

The sources of my observations here are not my friends or daily in-person and online associates, but far more revealing stories in the media of all kinds and hundreds of articles, news items, and videos I encounter each week while posting on my blog, 911grassroots.org.

My list of prevailing attitudes / habits of mind I find most objectionable and troublesome, that disappoint me the most in the world that surrounds us, limits, and enables us, is as follows:

1) Deadly Determination – In the case of high command of the U.S. military, as in those in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, etc., profitability and determination to attain predetermined set goals override any cost in human lives or safety, which no longer appear as a consideration. A parallel in business and politics is: if you need to cheat to win, don’t think twice.

2) Disappearance of Empathy – The points of view or vital or mandatory considerations of others are utterly disregarded and overridden by superior power.

3) Disappearance of Justice, Let Alone Equal Justice – Legal consideration or due notice of grievances, rights, or existing evidence have become largely optional and arbitrary, making a mockery of justice.

4) Self-Centeredness and Narcissism – The focus of advertising and what passes for entertainment are largely on aggrandizement of self-identification with star-power.

5) Closed-Mindedness to Disagreement – Contrary thinking or points of view are not tolerated and not respected.

6) Criminalization of Truth – Those with inside knowledge and whistleblowers are treated as meddlesome troublemakers.

7) Pervasive Larceny of Freedom – Universally recognized human rights are treated by the state as cancelable writs of privilege at best.

8) Disrespect For Others and Self – Although a false respect for human variation is honored as a politically-correctness value, in practice, individual deviants are suspected, demonized, and their tagging encouraged.

9) Disappearance of Moral Conviction and Courage – Even when violations of human dignity are recognized, few will bear the price of getting personally involved effectively on others’ behalf.

10) Betrayal of Accountability – Lies are now expected from miscreants or negligent actors caught in implicating behavior.

11) Replication in Place of Thought – Ready-made conclusions and judgments provided by media or peers are adopted to avoid ostracism.

12) Social Smugness – Refusal to consider the plight or conditions of different strata or segments of humanity identified by distant location.

Redundant and overlapping? Sure. Incomplete? Feel free to add items.

Why only negative observations and traits on the list? Just reverse them, and you will have a list of values for any nation to be proud of and probably thrive on!

Conclusion: All of these increasingly-evident and pronounced attitudes and tendencies, possibly along with others, I believe, add up to a sort of national psychosis, the emerging prevalence of which has contributed strongly to the unchecked assumptions that led to 9/11 and its coverup, the follow-on tendency of strategic persons to lie and deceive regularly to gain the society’s permission, however reluctant, to launch and sustain the fraudulently-sold militarized police state with its xenophobic overseas adventurism and runaway penchant for state control. Why is trust now passé? Because it is manifestly not deserved.

So, is there any hope of reversing the situation? My scientific bent inclines me to think, only when we reverse the conditions (in this case, habits of mind) that produce it. 9/11 and all its dreadful aftershocks didn’t happen in a vacuum. It’s all of a piece.
