"The War On Whistleblowers & Why America's Next President Will Kill Julian Assange". Given what Assange has had to put up with, I call out anybody who questions his motives. In many ways Assange started out as tragically politically naive, and he has paid a horrible price for it (while leaving his early messaging somewhat ambiguous), but the people who are really seriously suspect are those who attack him. The covert echo.
"Clintonite Conspiracy Theories" by Glen Ford:
"The imperial conspiracy has always been bipartisan, reflecting ruling class control of both major political parties and corporate ownership of the media. This election season, however, the institutional Republican Party has been broken by the billionaire brat America-Firster white nationalist from Queens, who violated the ruling class pact by, at least temporarily, challenging the doctrines of free flowing global capital, “humanitarian” military intervention (regime change, or its euphemism, “nation building”) and a permanent U.S. war footing with the Russians and Chinese. It is these heresies -- not Trump’s raging racism, which is standard issue for the White Man’s Party -- that have stampeded multinational capital, most of the denizens of the national security state, and the whole imperial foreign policy establishment into Hillary Clinton’s “Big Tent.” Trump’s continued popularity with a white male constituency that was always assumed to be a bastion of the War Party, is seen as an existential threat to the legitimacy of the U.S. quest for global dominance. When Trump says that Obama created ISIS, it does not matter much whether he understands the import of his own words. He is speaking an essential truth that goes to the heart of one of the Greatest Lies Ever Told: that the U.S. and its closest allies are sworn enemies of jihadist terror. The voluminously documented truth -- not a conspiracy theory -- is that the Americans and Saudis created the international jihadist network nearly four decades ago and have now come to rely on Islamic jihadists as foot soldiers for imperialism in the Muslim world."
"Saudi Arabia Cries Foul Play in Yemen". The Saudis - pure, unadulterated evil - are never going to be influenced by morality, so the only way out of this is for the Houthis to figure out a way to make the political cost on the Saudi princes of the Saudi slaughter too high.
