LEE CAMP: Trump Will Win Reelection Unless We Do One Thing

LEE CAMP: Trump Will Win Reelection Unless We Do One Thing

 May 21, 2020 at 20:56Trump was aided in winning the last election by the DNC. The stole the nomination from Bernie and put up Hillary, a corrupt, worn out, establishment hack,May 21, 2020 at 20:55But I was actually incredibly surprised that Daniel Kelly lost in Wisconsin, that’s not a good sign for Trump. Usually there is a voter turnout of like 10-12% for that, and people seemed to be so pissed that they braved the virus exposure and beat him quite easily, it was really shocking and maybe a good sign for Biden. And I think voters over 65 who mostly voted Trump probably will change their...

Letter Demands Sweden Probe Misdeeds in Assange Case

 May 19, 2020 at 07:50@Martin – Swedish CitizenThe conduct not only of Sweden but of all Western Democracies and its Main Media is apalling. The English Empire is no empire any more.

RAY McGOVERN: Turn Out the Lights, Russiagate is Over

May 20, 2020 at 10:04As I watch the unfolding struggle between re-aligning factions in the ruling claque, I often wonder how much you know about which power groups Mr. Trump and Ms Clinton represent. The fireworks have not been so publically visible since the days of McCarthy’s hearings. Anybody here hip to the Mary Carter Paint Company? The Safari Club? Clinton Foundation corruption?

PATRICK LAWRENCE: The Establishment is Changing its Tune on Russia

September 12, 2019 at 16:43Mr. Lawrence –The Russia question is a very interesting and useful way to approach the much larger question which is how to manage the “end of Western hegemony”.Mackinder, Brzezinski and other geo-strategic thinkers have long posited that in order to control the world, one much control Eurasia.The alliance between China and Russia, by definition, secures their dominance of Eurasia. Even forty years of U.S. trouble-making in Afghanistan, the geographic heart of Eurasia, has only proved to be an annoyance slowing the inevitable partnership of China and Russia, and...

September 29, 2019 at 18:17The real question is: Would we be here today if Obama/Biden had not taken part in an illegal overthrow of Ukraine? If you follow actual events, the people of Crimea were so upset they voted, LAWFULLY, to return to Russia. The two Eastern regions of Ukraine voted to join Russia too; but President Putin refused to accept them.The vultures also descended on Ukraine to make a profit and Hunter Biden was one of them and an honest prosecutor started to investigate, and Joe Biden blackmailed the “installed” President to fire him.

JOHN PILGER: Julian Assange Must Be Freed, Not Betrayed

This Saturday, there will be a march from Australia House in London to Parliament Square, the centre of British democracy. People will carry pictures of the Australian publisher and journalist Julian Assange who, on Feb. 24, faces a court that will decide whether or not he is to be extradited to the United States and a living death. I know Australia House well. As an Australian myself, I used to go there in my early days in London to read the newspapers from home. Opened by King George V over a century ago, its vastness of marble and stone, chandeliers and solemn portraits, imported from...

We are now being told (and I assure you I am not making this up) that if the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons doesn’t find evidence that the Syrian government conducted a chemical weapons attack in Douma last week, it’s because Russia hid the evidence. “It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site,” reports U.S. Ambassador Kenneth Ward. “It is our concern that they may have tampered with it with the intent of thwarting the efforts of the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission to conduct an effective investigation.” I guess the idea is that this...
