America Last: The Real Meaning of the Donald’s Deplorable Aggression Against Iran
At the end of the day, the whole misbegotten notion that oil security in the Persian Gulf requires the presence of the 5th Fleet is a left over canard from the Cold War, which ended 29 years ago. The 1970s theory of Kissinger and his team of hegemonists was that the dying Soviet Union was on the verge of pushing into the Persian Gulf from the north.
Needless to say, it never had the military capacity or economic resources to accomplish that feat, and the now open Soviet archives show that there wasn’t even a paper plan to do so.

New Adele Fado Low Rise Pants Silk Size 6 RP 224.Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's rush to judgement that Iran was behind the apparent attacks on two tanker ships last week has not galvanized world opinion against Iran, as the neocons hoped. Instead, it was met with high skepticism even among Washington's closest allies. Has the neocon practice of massively exaggerating and endlessly issuing threats finally destroyed US credibility on the world stage?

The neighbor who attacked Sen. Rand Paul in a rage over yard waste is apparently planning to move.
Court documents show Rene Boucher sold his five-bedroom home in Bowling Green, Ky., which is next to Paul's. He paid $382,000 from the sale to Paul as part of a lawsuit verdict.
Paul sued Boucher after the November 2017 attack in their Bowling Green neighborhood. The attack left Paul with several broken ribs and a hernia.
Documents show Boucher owes Paul more than $600,000 for pain and suffering, after pleading guilty at trial.

Stop arming radical jihadism
By Sen. Rand Paul
NEW Amoressa by Miraclesuit 'Four Square Sonder' 1-Piece Swimsuit Size 10 PlumThe Middle East is a hot cauldron continually threatening to boil over.
It is a mistake to funnel arms into centuries-old conflicts.
There is no great certainty that the arms we send into the Middle East will not one day be used against our soldiers. In fact, there is a real threat that someday our young soldiers will be sent to fight against the very weapons Congress sends today.
Thursday’s vote is not directly about selling arms to Saudi Arabia, but indirectly the vote is about the wisdom of proliferating arms in the Middle East.
Thursday’s vote is specifically about disapproving U.S. arms sales to Qatar and Bahrain.
The facts are not contested. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Bahrain have allowed U.S. arms to be funneled to radical Islamist groups throughout the Middle East.
Dumping more weapons into the Middle East won’t get us any closer to peace.
This week the Senate will vote on a pair of resolutions that would put a halt on future weapons sales to Bahrain and Qatar. I hope that every senator will vote to support S.J. Res. 20 and 26 which would stop the arms race. I strongly urge all my colleagues to vote “Yes.?Dumping more weapons into the Middle East won’t get us any closer to peace.
A “yes?vote is a vote for sanity.
A “yes?vote is a vote to quit sending arms to human rights abusers.
A “yes?vote is a vote against aiding and abetting the Saudi-led war in Yemen.
A “yes?vote is a vote for finally restoring Congress?proper role as a check on executive power.
Our Founding Fathers were wary of granting presidents too much power.
James Madison wrote that the executive is the branch of government “most prone?to war. Therefore, the Constitution, “with studied care,?granted the power to declare war to Congress.
I urge a “yes?vote to help restore a semblance of the Separation of Powers necessary to preserve our great republic.

Persian Gulf Tanker Attack: Iran Guilty? False Flag? Cui Bono?

US neocons are pointing the finger at Iran. Does it make sense to attack Japan in the midst of productive talks? Will the propaganda machine ramp up war talk?

The revelations led to "reform" in the form of the "FREEDOM Act." But have we recovered any of our privacy protections...or are we worse off...?

Pompeo Accidentally Tells Truth About Failed Venezuela Coup
Secretly recorded while speaking off the record to a group of supporters, Secretary of State Pompeo revealed that US policy toward Venezuela has been a disaster and that the US government has lied from the beginning about the level of support for the opposition and the ease of "restoring democracy" to the country.

Why continue the disastrous policy of backing al-Qaeda and other extremists in hope of overthrowing Assad? Why doesn't US policy change even after it is shown to be a huge failure?
Who's The Bigger War Criminal - Duncan Hunter...Or Those Who Sent Him To Iraq?
Written by Daniel McAdams
Wednesday June 5, 2019
Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) has found himself in the hot seat after defending a Navy SEAL on trial for wantonly killing civilians and stabbing prisoners while in Iraq. On a podcast, Hunter wondered what the big deal was - after all, he's responsible for hundreds of civilians killed in Fallujah. It sounds like a war crime, but perhaps the real war criminals are the neocon liars and a feckless president who sent the military into Iraq in the first place. If Hunter belongs on the dock, so does half the Bush Administration. Tune in to today's Liberty Report:
