Trump the Schlump: Iran Nuclear Deal Is Bad; North Korean Nuclear Deal Is Good
By scrapping America's commitment to the JCPOA and announcing that he is willing to invest billions in North Korea's economy, Mr. Trump, the self-professed master of the "art of the deal," has proven to be nothing more than a schlump of Netanyahu, Israeli sanction-busting oligarchs in Israel, and pro-Israeli political funders like Adelson, Singer, and Marcus.

Macron: An American Trojan horse in the Elysee Palace
The new French president, Emmanuel Macron, appears to have more than a casual relationship with the United States. While he worked within the Ministry of the Economy as both a special inspector and as minister, Macron oversaw the virtual theft of strategic French industries by American firms having strong links to the U.S. Intelligence Community.

So Who Hacked Clinton? The Truth Could Be More Shocking Than You Expected
UFO hackers, while looking for information on their favorite subject, stumbled across information that was of interest. And this is exactly how the hackers who penetrated Podesta's and the other Democrats' email stumbled across other email of interest, in this case email of interest to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks and the Donald Trump campaign. Again, there is not one scrap of evidence of Russian government involvement.

The CIA's Islamist Terrorist Network
The Haqqanis are the latest in a long line of so-called terrorist groups that were organized and funded by the CIA, only later to be thrown to the side of the road and branded "terrorists." Others include Al Qaeda, led by CIA Afghan war veteran Osama bin Laden and Hezb-I Islami leader Gulbuddin Hekmatayar.

Mitt Romney's Sturmabteilung
Romney's father, Michigan Governor George P. Romney, a 1968 Republican presidential candidate, said, "When I came back from Viet Nam, I'd just had the greatest brainwashing that anybody can get." Today, his son, Mitt, cannot see that he has been brainwashed by a crew of professional propagandists who serve the interests of the Pentagon and Israel.

Wayne Madsen: Democrats had to act, but they erred by not passing a single-payer plan
Passage of a single-payer -- already working well in Canada, across much of Europe and in most other advanced countries -- finally would have brought 21st century medical care to the United States.
That would have eliminated the costly tons of paperwork and volumes of confusing rules that now befuddle -- and all too often bankrupt -- Americans in need of quality care.

George Soros' and the Neo-Cons' Control of Washington's Propaganda Program
While the U.S. propaganda broadcasts emphasize "transparency" for governments around the world, the Obama administration has been one of the most opaque administrations in recent memory. The indictment of six former U.S. intelligence and military personnel for communicating, directly or indirectly, alleged classified information to journalists in violation of the arcane 1917 Espionage Act is unprecedented.

The UN General Assembly Vote Threatens Palestine as much as Syria
In the world of the Obama administration and its interventionist allies around the world, rules and international law mean nothing. For Zionist-supported pressure groups like UN Watch, that constantly count votes at the UN, the General Assembly vote on Syria cannot be anything but encouraging for Israel on the Palestine statehood issue.
Obama's gambit: Holding Egypt for Holder
The CIA's last-ditch support for the Mubarak regime is strikingly similar to its support for the Shah of Iran in his final days in power. As with the revolt against Mubarak in Egypt, the uprising against Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi in 1978 came as a shock to the CIA. In the world of the CIA, the playbook never seems to change.

Stuxnet: A Violation of US Computer Security Law
Placing intelligence operatives inside computer security management positions can always result in the use of computers for sabotage and intelligence. Stuxnet may be the culmination of such infiltration of the computer security profession.

Wikileaks: Its Impact On World Media
The release of the State Department cables may have served as a digital "9/11," an event that has spurred on the agenda of neo-conservatives who continue to exercise influence outside and within the Obama administration to bring about total government control of the flow of information in cyberspace.

The Gulf oil disaster truth
The Gulf waters are slowly being turned into a hydrocarbon soup of dispersed oil bubbles that is translucent black in color. Fishing boat owners whose boats have been used for clean-up efforts are suffering fiberglass hull damage from hydrocarbon penetration and BP has informed the owners that their boats will have to be destroyed afterwards and their hulls ground up.

Israel Slandering American ex-Marine. Semper Fi, Ken! Your Turn to Speak
Desperate to demonize the Gaza Freedom Flotilla as terrorist-linked to thus justify their wanton slaughter of humanitarian aid volunteers, now they are slandering Ken O'Keefe, a dual British and American citizen and an ex-Marine. They are accusing him of being a "radical anti-Israel activist" who was traveling to Gaza to "train a commando unit" for Hamas. Well, Semper Fi, Ken, your turn to speak, we got your back.

The Cover-up: BP's Crude Politics and the Looming Environmental Mega-Disaster
There is another major threat looming for inland towns and cities. With hurricane season in effect, there is a potential for ocean oil to be picked up by hurricane-driven rains and dropped into fresh water lakes and rivers, far from the ocean, thus adding to the pollution of water supplies and eco-systems.
NSA eavesdropping more widespread than reported
NSA sources report that the agency's warrantless wiretapping program was more widespread than originally reported and it began shortly after the 2001 inauguration of Bush and Cheney, some six months prior to the 9/11 attacks. It soon grew to include millions of Americans--elected and appointed government officials, federal judges, anti-Bush celebrities and clergy, and even intelligence and law enforcement officials.

Rove intimidating Republicans into silence
Buoyed by an ineffective House Judiciary Committee under the control of gatekeeping staffers working for John Conyers, Karl Rove has effectively curtailed any effective investigation of past election fraud, including the 2004 presidential election, as a result of threats and intimidations directed against potential witnesses. George Soros may be behind limiting the investigation into Don Siegleman's imprisonment.
Is CIA Using Rendition Aircraft to Haul Drugs?
The Central Intelligence Agency, also known as the "Cocaine Import Agency," is suspected by aviation experts of running cocaine and other drugs on its fleet of small passenger jets used to ferry prisoners to and from American gulags like Guantanamo Bay and Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.
The DC Press Is up in Arms
From the production shop of Washington's signature newspaper, the Washington Post, to the 100-year old National Press Club, journalists and newspaper support workers are up in arms over the further attempts to corporatize the Fourth Estate.
AFRICOM: The Recolonization of Africa by Uncle Sam
George W. Bush's Africa Command (AFRICOM) not only places oil and global military strategy as the number one and two goals of America's Africa policy but places the State Department's assistance program for Africa firmly under Pentagon control.
Beware of the Clinton "Neocons-Lite"
A future Hillary Clinton administration threatens to immerse us in more war. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and UN ambassador Richard Holbrooke, Senator Clinton's two top foreign policy advisers -- who could both end up in her administration in senior foreign policy positions -- are known to have hard-line positions on both Kosovo and Kurdistan. The better to antagonize Russia.

Can UFOs Bring Iran and the US Together?
The hard right villifies Dennis Kucinich for admitting to seeing a UFO. Yet astrophysicists and retired air force generals (including one from Iran!) convened in Washington to call for a dialogue on UFOs.
Coming to a Community Near You: Blackwater
A network of Blackwater-trained police, sheriffs, and other police units is being established around the country. Given its dismal record on human rights and brutality, this spells trouble for civilian control of police.
Questions Remain Over Nuclear-Armed B-52 Over Midwest
The reported "loss" of six nuclear-armed stealthy advance cruise missiles (ACMs) flown on the wing pylons of a B-52 from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota to Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana on August 30 would represent a complete and unprecedented breakdown in the command and control of nuclear weapons in the United States.

Chatter picked up by WMR's sources in the nation's capital and in California point to unusual events that could be a prelude to a 9/11-like false flag "incident" during the Labor Day weekend, possibly one focused on the San Francisco Bay Area.

Roll Call of Traitors
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), amended to permit warrantless eavesdropping, could not have been signed into law by President Bush without the active support of Vichy Democrats, who bolted their leadership.
Names of Agencies and Businesses That Hired DC Madam Emerging
A cursory examination of Pamela Martin & Associates' phone lists is beginning to show that so-called "Washington Madam" Deborah Jeane Palfrey's contention that a number of influential public and private officials were clients of her escort agency is being borne out.

How the US Helped Yeltsin Avoid Another Afghanistan
Both Moscow and the West wanted a quick end to the Chechens' war for autonomy, which was draining the lives of hundreds of Russia's young soldiers and its cash reserves, as well as threatening Yeltsin's chances for re-election. One from the author's archives.
