    If It Weren’t for These 8 Myths American Society Would Collapse

This article originally appeared on Truth Dig. Our society should’ve collapsed by now. You know that, right? No society should function with this level of inequality (with the possible exception of one of those prison planets in a “Star Wars” movie). Sixty-three percent of Americans can’t afford a $500 emergency. Yet Amazon head Jeff Bezos is…

The Putin-Trump Helsinki Summit: The Action Is in the Reaction

    The Putin-Trump Helsinki Summit: The Action Is in the Reaction

Now that a little over a week has passed since the much awaited Putin-Trump summit in Helsinki took place, I have had the time to read many of the reactions and comments it generated.  I am coming to the paradoxical conclusion that this summit was both a non-event and a truly historical watershed moment. Let’s…

  Congress Officially Blocks F-35 Shipments To Turkey After Mattis Pleads Not To

It finally happened, even after Defense Secretary Jim Mattis urged Congress not to bar Turkey from purchasing the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II stealth fighter, arguing in a letter sent to lawmakers as they deliberated the move that such a drastic action would trigger an international “supply chain disruption” that would push costs for the already exorbitant $100 million aircraft higher.…

  While US Seeks to Up the Ante on Pressure on the DPRK, Russia Proposes Easing Sanctions

The United States last week accused the DPRK of violating refined petroleum caps imposed as a part of UN nuclear sanctions dating back to 2006, and is therefore submitting a proposal to cut all petroleum product sales to North Korea.

  Trump’s Helsinki Faceplant Is a Grim Reflection of Washington’s Uncompromising Anti-Russia Crusade

WASHINGTON, D.C. – (ANALYSIS) After over a year and a half of anticipation, the first formal meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin was certainly a momentous occasion, but hardly for the intended reasons.

  No, Putin Didn’t Agree to Play Lackey Against Iran to Appease Trump & Netanyahu

TEHRAN, IRAN – Little of real substance seems to have resulted from the infamous Helsinki meeting between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, with even a joint communiqué from the two heads of state failing to materialize.

  5 Times the US Actively Supported ISIS or Similar Groups

Washington D.C. (GPA) – Everyone knows U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East has more to do with destabilization than diplomacy. Whether arming terror states like Israel and Saudi Arabia or flattening entire countries like Libya and Iraq, American intervention is pretty much always a humanitarian disaster.
