Two Minutes To Midnight

Intro. by Dr Paul Craig Roberts: Many youngsters think that nuclear war is impossible because it is irrational. In fact, nuclear war is very possible and, indeed, likely. In our present time Washington has recklessly heightened tensions with Russia and China, and reaction times are so short that they permit no time for clarification or reflection. Launched missiles, unlike ships and airplanes, cannot be recalled.
John Walsh, Stephen Cohen, and myself, like others of our age who experienced decades of the Cold War, are now experiencing a far more dangerous resurrection of it. The older generation must succeed in making the younger ones comprehend that the hurt that awaits mankind will not be loosed by Democratic politicians in Virginia wearing blackface. John Walsh’s review of Daniel Ellsberg’s book, Doomsday Machine, might assist Americans in coming to grips with reality otherwise, we won’t be here much longer.
Two Minutes To Midnight
“From a technical point of view, he [director Stanley Kubrick] anticipated many things. … Since that time, little has changed, honestly.

Elmo Caught Up In #MeToo

'Those arms! Those little furry red arms!'
By : Popular Sesame Street character Elmo is the latest to be caught up in the ongoing #MeToo scandal. Two women working on the set of Sesame Street have claimed that Elmo tickles cast and crew without their consent.
One brave young woman, who made her complaint anonymously, had this to say about Elmo’s behaviour:
As I had done every day since starting this job I took a cigar and bottle of Scotch to Elmo’s dressing room after filming had completed for the day. Usually, I’d just knock and a red furry hand would come out to grab the cigar and booze. This time it was different. Elmo invited me in. When I went to put the cigar and Scotch on a table he closed and locked the door behind me. I was trapped. And then it happened. Elmo tickled me! I tried to say no but the word wouldn’t come out of my mouth. I got the “n” out but I just couldn’t say “o”. The tickling went on and on. I thought it would never end. And then we had sex. I was so happy the tickling had stopped.

Venezuela Is An Opportunity For Russia And China To Change The World

Nothing better illustrates Washington’s opposition to democracy and self-determination than the blatantly public coup Washington has organized against the properly elected president of Venezuela.
By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Washington has been trying to overthrow the Venezuelan government for years. Washington wants the state owned oil company to be privatized so that it can fall into the hands of US oil companies. That would ensure Washington’s control over Venezuela. Transferring the wealth out of the country would prevent any economic development from inside the country. Every aspect of the economy would end up in the hands of US corporations. The exploitation would be ruthless and brutal.
Venezuelans understand this, which is why Washington, despite wrecking the Venezuelan economy and offering enormous bribes to the Venezuelan military, has not yet been able to turn the people and the troops against Maduro.
Moon of Alabama’s explanation of Washington’s attack on Venezuela gives you a truer picture that differs completely from the lies voiced by the American and European politicians and presstitute media, a collection of whores who are devoid of all integrity and all morality and lie for their living.

Dreams Die Hard "We're Caught In An Entropy Trap..."

'Artifacts of a fossil fuel turbo-charged economy that is coming to an end.'
Authored by James Howard Kunstler: Somewhere between the fevered Zzzz’s of American Dreaming and the blinding shock of being “woke,” there is a recognition that an awful lot about contemporary life is not working and can’t go on. At the bottom of this discontent is the mistaken notion that the unwind of modernity can be arrested or mitigated by “smart” and “green” this-and-that.
The disappointment over it will be epic when we discover that the laws of physics override the bright ideas of politicians. America has been blowing green smoke up its own ass for years, promoting oxymorons such as “green skyscrapers” and “clean energy,” but the truth is we’re not going to run WalMart, Suburbia, DisneyWorld, and the interstate highway system on any combination of wind, solar, geothermal, recycled Fry-Max, and dark matter. We’re just running too much stuff at too great a scale for too many people. We’ve blown through the capital already and replaced it with IOUs that will never be honored,

Was Sammy Davis Jr A Self-Hating Black Man?

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Today on NPR a sorry excuse for a white male, who said he was a professor—pity the students—was sympathizing with the hurt that blacks feel when a white person puts on black face and dresses up like a black person. The professor said that this was not unique to Virginia and the South; white people did this hurtful thing all over the country and also once attired themselves at costume parties in KKK outfits. If the professor understood that all this was done in fun as entertainment and not as expressions of racism or hatred toward blacks, it still somehow constituted “hurt” to black Americans.
NPR also had present an older black man who was a muscian in a white rock ban that often performed at fraternity parties. Pressed to say whether he had ever encountered anyone in black face, he said he did on occasion. Being older than the white male professor, he seemed to understand that what was going on was entertainment, not a demonstration of disrespect or racist feelings. Nevertheless, egged on by the NPR host, he felt obliged to say it could be a bit hurtful.
The program did not explore whether it was hurtful to white people and George Washington’s descendants for a person to dress up like George Washington, or whether witches are offended by witch costumes, or goblins by people pretending to be goblins.

Botching A Coup In Venezuela

"He's a 'democratic' dictator. In liberty, for whom, Venezuelans, or the high rollers on Wall Street? Read, Jewish finance capital writ large! ...It's outright theft!" Said ex-Jew Nathanael.

Leaked Wikileaks Doc Reveals US Military Use Of IMF, World Bank As “Unconventional” Weapons

This “U.S. coup manual,” recently highlighted by WikiLeaks, serves as a reminder that the so-called “independence” of such financial institutions as The World Bank and IMF is an illusion and that they are among the many “financial weapons” regularly used by the U.S. government to bend countries to its will.
By Whitney Webb: In a leaked military manual on “unconventional warfare” recently highlighted by WikiLeaks, the U.S. Army states that major global financial institutions — such as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) — are used as unconventional, financial “weapons in times of conflict up to and including large-scale general war,” as well as in leveraging “the policies and cooperation of state governments.”
