Israel -- America's Biggest Frenemy The Israel lobby is losing its grip: the American people -- previously inclined to support Israel no matter what -- show signs of waking up to the danger posed by our Israel-centric foreign policy. Israel today is a tyranny on the order of the old South Africa, with one added factor: they are armed with nuclear weapons.

Iraq's Slippery Slope We are sliding down the Iraqi slope pretty rapidly. Hardly a week goes by when we don't hear of another few hundred GIs being quietly shipped to Iraq -- "non-combat" troops, to be sure. Yes, they're going over there to engage in some pretty dangerous and potentially lethal "non-combat" -- and when they start getting killed in numbers high enough to notice, will they come back in non-bodybags?

Who Leaked the Obama-Khamenei Letter? For an administration that has put so much emphasis on hunting down "leakers," it's pretty amazing how leaky Washington gets when it comes to matters of concern to the Israelis. Take the recent Wall Street Journal story on President's Obama's alleged letter to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. How did the Journal get their hands on it?

Do We Have a Foreign Policy? You Bet We Do ... The Obama administration extended the biggest expansionist push in the history of the world into North Africa with the regime change operation in Libya, and later Syria. Somalia was attacked, our alliance with the murderous ruler of Ethiopia was buttressed, and Africom was beefed up considerably in anticipation of future interventions. All this from a President who had been elected as a "peace" candidate!

The Chicken*hit Lobby Is Mad As Hell The Chickenshit Lobby, otherwise known as Israel's amen corner in the US, is mad as hell -- but just how mad are they? I don't know the answer to that question, but as the prospect of a peace agreement with Iran looms larger, those whose job it is to protect the President need to take this potential threat seriously. As we've seen recently, the White House isn't exactly an impregnable fortress.

Putin's Complaint The number one hate object is Vladimir Putin, who is regularly characterized as either the reincarnation of Stalin, the second coming of Hitler or, preferably, both. That's because he doesn't recognize the implications of Russia's defeat in the cold war and still seems to think his opinions amount to something in the brave new unipolar world Washington is building.

Anarchy in Washington: Is Anybody in Charge? The public opposes troops on the ground -- and so the President sticks that in his "plan." The political elites want to aid the Syrian rebels, so he sticks that in there, too. A general who knows better tells the country the truth: it will take ground troops to accomplish the mission. Yet the mission being accomplished is beside the point -- because the real mission is winning the hearts and minds of the American people.

Hoaxes, Hype, and Hysteria Speaking of hoaxes, here's a biggie: they're telling us that the long-awaited Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine has finally arrived! Yay! You can almost hear the sigh of relief all the way from Washington. The War Party's journalistic camarilla -- which has been telling us for the past six months or so that Putin's move was "imminent" -- yelped "we told you so!"

Iraq: The "Humanitarian Catastrophe" That Petered Out It's been over 60 days since the Obama administration first notified Congress of the President's intent to send troops back into Iraq -- past the deadline set by the War Powers Act that is supposed to trigger either a vote in Congress or withdrawal. Where is Congress? On vacation -- not only from their jobs, but from reality.

Israel, Genocide, and the "Logic" of Zionism While we have gotten quite used to the sight of Israel conducting a shooting-gallery "war" in the open air prison that is Gaza, there is something new about this latest exhibition of state terrorism. There is a kind of murderous glee in the Israeli leadership's inversion of all moral and international legal standards in its conduct of this "war."

Pro-Israel Media Bias: It's As Easy As ABC There comes a point when the myth and the reality are so dissonant that the result is what happened with Diane Sawyer's "error": as Israeli jets rained death on Gaza, the Sawyerian mind transmuted the image into its exact opposite, and -- presto change-o! -- those Palestinians dragging a mattress across the rubble became Israelis.

Political Correctness and Imperialism By conducting a "war on intolerance" in the same arrogant manner in which we wage our endless "war on terrorism," we are reaping a whirlwind of resentment--and whipping up the very hatred we claim to be fighting. The crazy idea that we can go around the world uprooting the traditions of thousands of years is a constant. It's not only crazy, it represents a threat to our liberty, our prosperity, and the peace of the world.

Iraq: Will the Neocons Get Away With It Again? A full-scale campaign to restart the Iraq war is now underway. The effort is all too apparent among the neoconservatives, the original authors of this disastrous adventure, with Bill Kristol & Co. not only demanding air strikes -- which the Obama administration is contemplating -- but also troops on the ground.

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl: Prisoner of the War Party It's hard to believe any decent human being would even consider putting Bergdahl through more trauma than he's already endured -- but in the case of the War Party, we aren't talking about decent people. They will argue that no individual "insider," whether a private in the Army or a top level technologist for the NSA, has the moral right to obey their conscience when it conflicts with their orders.

Greenwald Against the Establishment Again and again, Greenwald comes back to the issue of our subservient media and how the complicity of editors and reporters allows Washington -- and other Western governments -- to get away with their crimes. They obey the unwritten rules of Establishment journalism. "Fear-driven obsequious journalism" -- that's what he calls it, and that's what it is.

Utah -- Achilles' Heel of the Surveillance State This burgeoning nationwide movement to liberate us from the NSA's unwanted embrace isn't going to be stopped by some harebrained conspiracy theory. The American people, no matter what their politics, have had enough, not only of the NSA but of an intellectually bankrupt "progressive" movement that has sold its soul to James Clapper.

Demand An Unconditional Pardon for Edward Snowden In a rational world, there would be no question about the moral and legal status of the man responsible for exposing this treason to the Constitution: he would be hailed as a hero by every sector of society, from the political class to the working class, and given the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Look What's Under My Christmas Tree! Hardly a day goes by without us benefiting from Snowden's largesse, the chief perk being the sight of the entire political Establishment -- not only the corrupt politicians but their equally venal servants in the "mainstream" media -- in a veritable panic as the truth about America's evolving police state is revealed for all to see.

Goliath: The Book That May Delegitimize Israel's Apartheid State This coarsening -- brutalization, really -- of Israeli society is something one imagines Leibowitz would have despised had he lived to see it. The mere fact that the Israelis routinely arrest and torture Palestinian children as young as eight should be enough to delegitimize the "Jewish state" in the eyes of the world -- that is, if enough eyes see it.

We're Never Leaving Afghanistan Rather than ending the war, the Obama-Karzai pact institutionalizes it, making the occupation of Afghanistan a permanent feature of US military operations in the region. It even maps out a place for this new US colony in the annual budget, and there is no time limit on any of this: "2024 and beyond." From this quagmire there is to be no extrication -- that, in short, is the sum total of our great "victory" in Afghanistan.

Hands Off Glenn Greenwald! Glenn Greenwald, the former lawyer-turned-blogger, now a world-famous journalist, whose incisive reporting on the story of how the National Security Agency has been spying on Americans' phone records, emails, and other online communications has roiled the Obama administration and started a fierce national debate over what kind of country we are -- and what kind of country we're turning into.

Egypt's Tiananmen While Washington's wonks speculate back and forth as to how much advance notice Washington had of the coup-that-isn't-a-coup, the world's Muslims know it couldn't have happened without a green light from this administration -- that is, if it wasn't Washington's idea in the first place.

The Battle for the Amash Amendment: Victory in Defeat There hasn't been a vote like this in the House -- nor a debate quite like it -- since the last time the Patriot Act came up for renewal, in 2011. What -- or, rather, who -- jolted GOPers out of their somnolent indifference to the Fourth Amendment? Two words: Edward Snowden.

Politics and Persona: Edward Snowden as Symbol Like Snowden, Americans don't want to live in a world in which the government has the power to watch their every move, chart their every thought, and control the very levers of their lives. They are contemptuous of the smear campaign being launched against Snowden and Greenwald, and they are demanding answers.

Edward Snowden, A Modern Paul Revere The creation of a secret police state apparatus represents a fork in the road for the United States. Snowden said his motive was to make it possible for the American people to decide whether the Surveillance State is what they want -- and that they couldn't do this unless they knew what was going on behind their backs.

Edward Snowden vs. the Sovietization of America Government officials are howling with outrage, and calling for Edward Snowden's head. The pundits are livid: how dare this "narcissist" who didn't go to an Ivy League college presume to sit in judgment of his betters! Whatever their disagreements, politicians and talking heads of the left and the right agree: Snowden is a "traitor"!

The Resurrection of Barack Obama Lies mixed with indisputable truth -- that's been the Obama Method since day one. It's worked so far: we'll see how long it works this time. The President's rhetorical talent is formidable, and it's earned him some time to make good on his promises -- but the hour is late. 2016 approaches. The future of his party, and the country, hangs in the balance, as does his legacy.

Raping the World -- Sexual Assault In The US Military Political correctness has mandated a sexually integrated military, with women (and openly gay men) living and working alongside testosterone-soaked heterosexual men who have come to believe they are exempt from the rules us lowly civilians must live by. Is it any wonder that rape is part of the military culture?

Will Budget "Cuts" Impact US Aid to Israel? -- Not hardly Obama, on his trip to Israel, presented Netanyahu with a new 10-year aid "package" totaling some $40 billion -- a $10 billion increase over the last such agreement. And since our special alliance with Israel is "eternal," as the President rhapsodized, this amount will presumably increase unto eternity. Or until the American people put a stop to it -- whichever comes first.

Hagel Hearing: The War Party's Waterloo There was something profoundly weird about the ritualistic invocations of undying loyalty to Israel, a country mentioned 135 times in the course of the hearing: Afghanistan only merited 27, while al Qaeda got two and Mali one. One would have thought Hagel had been nominated for Israeli Defense Minister instead of the top civilian in the Pentagon.

The Israel Lobby and the Road to War Israel's alleged "existential crisis" is nothing but hysterics on the part of Israel's leaders, but let's leave that aside for the moment and ask a more fundamental question: where do Israel's interests end and America's begin, or is there no daylight between the two?

The Hollow Empire The US has lost the war in Afghanistan. The announcement that joint operations involving US/NATO forces and Afghan military and police personnel will cease - "temporarily" -- went down with a whimper, not a bang. Neither major party is much interested in the subject of a war we have been fighting for over a decade, at a cost measured in hundreds of thousands of lives and trillions of dollars.

Bibi's Crazy UN Speech The ticking-bomb theme, which has been used to justify everything from torture to the invasion of Iraq, permeates Israeli propaganda in the US and was a cental theme of Bibi's speech. Don't delay, don't think, act now -- before the fraud is exposed, and we discover that -- as in the case of the Iraqis -- those "weapons of mass destruction" were just a figment of our easily manipulated collective imagination.

Bibi's War -- We don't have to fight it Has there ever been a more brazen display of a foreign government dragging a more powerful nation into a war not of its own choosing? I'm talking about the almost comical efforts by the Israelis to goad Washington into attacking Iran: the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu has done everything and then some to put pressure on the Obama administration to act.

Gore Vidal: The Last Jeffersonian I won't be surprised to see Vidal's posthumously published works shoot to the top of the bestseller list. That's because the power of what Vidal represented -- not the "ranting" of a Southern populist, as Lind would have it, but the sharp dissent of an American original and a literary giant, whose oeuvre will be remembered -- and read -- long after the journalistic twitterings of his critics are justly forgotten.

The Lies We Tell Floating a story about how the administration is resisting increasing pressure to intervene in Syria is a good way to deflect attention from what they are in fact doing right at this moment to overthrow a foreign government. Thanks to our "democratic" system, this administration will pay no political price for meddling in the Syrian mess.

Assange's Last Stand? If there was ever a clear-cut case of good versus evil, then surely it is the contest between Julian Assange and most of the world's governments. They hate him because he exposed their lies, their manipulations, and their routine violations of the most elementary rules of human decency. The US government would dearly love to get its hands on Assange: rumor has it a secret grand jury indictment has already been handed down.

How To Judge A Political Candidate In judging which political candidates to support, and (more importantly) the question of whom to oppose, the rule should be: judge harshly. That may sound unreasonable, and even a bit dogmatic, but the reality is that the only way to get the kind of behavior we want in politicians, when it comes to the vital issue of war and peace, is to punish them for warmongering and support them when they work for peace.

Problems of Empire Even if we weren't bankrupt, it is hard to see how a cost-benefit analysis can justify this level of US intervention abroad. We spend more on the military than all other nations on earth combined, and the only thing it's gotten us has been some pretty consequential blowback and a mountain of unsustainable debt. So what's the upside?

Robert Bales: Mass Murderer and PTSD Poster Boy What's striking about all this is the focus on Bales instead of his victims. Was he on medications? What about that "traumatic" brain injury? Had he been drinking? What was his childhood like -- his marriage, his work history? Isn't it true that "he loved children" (touted by Matt Lauer)? As for the victims, even their names are rarely reported.

The "Trust Gap" Usually, the blackmailer operates in the shadows, sneaking about delivering threatening missives to victims, while taking great pains to cover his tracks. Israelis are doing it right out in the open. If America were a normal country, this would provoke outrage in our lawmakers and media who would want to know why a supposed "ally" would knowingly put American soldiers at risk--and openly boast about keeping us in the dark.

The Greatest Threat a new Threat is rising, not from without but from within -- an economic cancer eating away at the very heart of our society. We had a taste of it in '08, and in spite of the Obama-bots' Pollyannaish predictions of "recovery," ordinary people see nothing but trouble on the horizon. This is a real threat, unlike the others, one that cannot be fought by our matchless military, or even negotiated with -- and it is coming.

The Return of the Smear Bund Israel's lobby in the US is reflexively defensive, and covertly authoritarian: they can't afford to have an open discussion of our "special relationship" with Israel -- and Israel's sick relationship with its Arab helots -- and so must resort to silencing their opponents.

"Egypt the Prize" The neocons were way ahead of the Obamaites in 2002, but Hillary Clinton's State Department is playing catch-up fast. The new year will see a renewed thrust of US power -- "soft" and hard -- into the most volatile region on earth, and the results are sure to be explosive.

The Return Of Barbarism Look at these "triumphs," which, one and all, are marked by their lawlessness and bloodthirstiness: the assassination of Osama bin Laden, the drone killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, and now the lynching of Moammar Gadhafi by US-NATO proxies. The distinguishing characteristic of all three acts is barbarism -- a studied disregard for the rules of war and the common decencies that define what it means to be civilized.

Is America a Force for Good in the World? The history of the last decade or so proves, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that the US government, far from being this great liberating force, the greatest factor for good in the international equation, is instead a force for naked evil. It isn't that "we are not angels," it's that we're devils. It's as simple as that.

No U-Turns on the Road to Serfdom? What is needed is a broad coalition of those on the right as well as the left who see the danger and are ready to unite in defense of basic constitutional liberties. Unless and until we build such a movement, the war on the Constitution will end in the unconditional surrender of our liberties by those who had neither the heart nor the nerve to fight.
