Beyond The DNC – Leaks, Hacks, and Treason

    Beyond The DNC – Leaks, Hacks, and Treason

People have been divided about the DNC hack-leak ever since the story began with the Chalupa-Isikoff article. These divisions run so deep they mark where people stand politically.

    Senator Richard Burr: a Longtime Fan of Torture

Newly released official documents obtained by the National Security Archive showing that CIA Director Gina Haspel directly supervised waterboarding at the first CIA “Black Site” simply confirm what Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Richard Burr (R-NC) already knew as he orchestrated the charade that was Haspel’s confirmation hearing.  Burr allowed her to “classify” her own direct role in waterboarding…

    The Deep State’s Long Enmity Toward the People of Iran

The U.S. deep state’s hatred of the Iranian people goes back a long way, at least as far back as 1953. That was the year that the CIA, which was called into existence in 1947 when the U.S. government was being converted to a national-security state, targeted Iran with its first regime-change operation.

  Why Is the Head of the Teacher’s Union Pushing for Support of Israel?

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) reports a disconnect between the president of the American Federation of Teachers, Randi Weingarten, and its members. JTA reports: Weingarten is Jewish. Her union, which counts 1.7 million members in 3,000 chapters, is not. It’s typically more concerned with issues like raising teachers’ pay and strengthening public schools than with, say, the…

  American Islamophobia’s Fake Facts

Anti-Muslim activists in the United States were operating in a “post-truth era” and putting out “alternative facts” long before those phrases entered the language.

  US Wants Nicaragua to Fall Because It Poses the Threat of a Good Example

Some former supporters of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega and his Sandinista party echo the US talking points: Ortega’s “entire government has been, in essence, neoliberal. Then it becomes authoritarian, repressive.” One would think that a neoliberal regime, especially if it were authoritarian and repressive, would be just…

  How Security Clearances Perpetuate Top-Level Corruption in the United States

President Donald Trump is threatening to take away the security clearances of a number of former senior intelligence and security officers who have been extremely critical of him. Most Americans were unaware that any ex-officials continued to hold clearances after they retired and the controversy has inevitably raised the question why that should be so. Unfortunately, there…
