The Entire Western World Lives In Cognitive Dissonance

'Are we experiencing a mass psychosis form of cognitive dissonance?'
By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: In this column I am going to use three of the current top news stories to illustrate the disconnect that is everywhere in the Western mind.
Let us begin with the family separation issue. The separation of children from immigrant/refugee/asylum parents has caused such public outcry that President Trump has backed off his policy and signed an executive order terminating family separation.
The horror of children locked up in warehouses operated by private businesses making a profit off of US taxpayers, while parents are prosecuted for illegal entry, woke even self-satisfied “exceptional and indispensable” Americans out of their stupor. It is a mystery that the Trump regime chose to discredit its border enforcement policy by separating families. Perhaps the policy was intended to deter illegal immigration by sending the message that if you come to America your children will be taken from you.
The question is: How is it that Americans can see and reject the inhumane border control policy and not see the inhumanity of family destruction that has been the over-riding result of Washington’s destruction in whole or part of seven or eight countries in the 21st century?

US Congress Prepares To Ban Whatever Substance A 'Drug War-Crazed Loon' Doesn’t Like

By Michael Krieger: Allowing government to arbitrarily determine which substances human beings can put into their own bodies is one of the most idiotic things a society can do. As such, its no surprise Congress is salivating at the prospect of furthering this travesty by giving additional discretion on the matter to drug war-crazed loon, Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Reason published an excellent article on the topic in yesterday’s piece: Congress Wants To Give Jeff Sessions Unprecedented New Drug War Powers.
Here are some key excerpts:
If you think the Department of Justice has more than enough tools to wage the war on drugs, a bill passed by the House would create a fast-track scheduling system that could lead to the criminalization of kratom, nootropics, and pretty much anything that gives you a buzz and isn’t already illegal.
The House of Representatives voted on Friday to create a new schedule of banned drugs under the Controlled Substances Act, called “Schedule A,” and to give Attorney General Jeff Sessions broad new powers to criminalize the manufacturing, importation, and sale of substances that are currently unregulated, but not illegal. The bill is now headed to the Senate, where co-sponsors Dianne Feinstein (D–Calif.) and Chuck Grassley (R–Iowa) will likely have little problem whipping votes.

Sexy Metal: The Missing Element In The Korean Puzzle

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo knows the importance of rare earth elements, and North Korea has reportedly found one of the world’s biggest deposits 150km from Pyongyang; is this another factor behind the recent thaw with the US?
By Pepe Escobar: This may not be about condos on North Korean beaches after all. Arguably, the heart of the matter in the Trump administration’s embrace of Kim Jong-un has everything to do with one of the largest deposits of rare earth elements (REEs) in the world, located only 150 km northwest of Pyongyang and potentially worth billions of US dollars.
All the implements of 21st century technology-driven everyday life rely on the chemical and physical properties of 17 precious elements on the periodic chart also known as REEs.
Currently, China is believed to control over 95% of global production of rare earth metals, with an estimated 55 million tons in deposits. North Korea for its part holds at least 20 million tons.
Rare earth elements are not the only highly strategic minerals and metals in this power play. The same deposits are sources of tungsten, zirconium, titanium, hafnium, rhenium and molybdenum; all of these are absolutely critical not only for myriad military applications but also for nuclear power.

UK Prince William’s Itinerary Correctly Notes Jerusalem As ‘Occupied Palestinian Territories’ - Jewish Hasbara Ensues

Prince Willy’s itinerary for his upcoming visit to the Israel gulag includes a visit to occupied Jerusalem in the Occupied Palestinian Territories,” which resulted in a request by Jewish apartheid state occupiers to “correct” the item which allegedly “politicizes” the issue of the Jewish Zionists' inhuman bastardry.
From Jewish Telegraphic Agency: The Israeli Cabinet member in charge of [religious genocide in] Jerusalem [for the Jewish regime] has called on the staff of Britain’s Prince William to 'correct' the itinerary for his upcoming official visit to Palestine that lists the city as being in the “Occupied Palestinian Territories.”
“United Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for 3,000 years and no distortion in the tour itinerary can change that reality,” Jerusalem Affairs Minister Zeev Elkin moaned in a prepared statement that also was posted Monday on Facebook. “I expect the prince’s people to correct the distortion.”
[Note: refer to this article from Ha’aretz as a rebuttal to the statement that “Jerusalem is the eternal, undivided capital of Israel.]
“It’s regrettable that Britain chose to politicize the Royal visit,” Elkin also said, according to Ynet.
