Trump and Tillerson: Lubricating A New Path to Victory?

Trump and Tillerson: Lubricating A New Path to Victory?

With anti-Russian hysteria reaching fever-pitch in America’s corporate-owned mainstream media, there is a desperate need for an objective look at what Donald Trump’s foreign policy might actually mean for America and the world it has long sought to dominate. A major course correction is in the offing, taking the empire toward its objectives in an entirely different way. But for America’s established rulers, victory on Trump’s terms is a prospect about which we are not even allowed to think.

Blood on the Glass Ceiling: The Hillary Doctrine in Imperial Context

Hillary Clinton presents herself as a safe choice for America, alleging that Donald Trump is dangerously incoherent in foreign policy and a misogynist.

The Silk Road or the Trail of Tears? America, China, and the Race to Tehran

The American Empire has reached a turning point. With China supplanting the U.S. as the world’s largest economy, and the precious dollar in danger of losing its dominance, the world is slipping through America’s blood-soaked fingers.

Malice Aforethought: Iraq, ISIS, and the American Caliphate

As the corpse of a murdered Iraq rots before our eyes, the world must ask whether the United States was criminally negligent or motivated by malicious intent. For the chaos in the Middle East is nowhere near as random as it seems; on the contrary, it serves American imperial interests quite nicely, a fact with chilling implications for the rest of humanity.

Empire Uber Alles: The Familiar Face of Bipartisan Consensus

Normal service has been resumed. America’s owners have cracked their whip, and Congress has finally passed a budget. The military-industrial complex has been given a huge Christmas present, but the rest of us can go hang from Eisenhower’s Cross of Iron.

Truth and Reconciliation? The American Smear Campaign Against Nelson Mandela

American conservatives have surprised and disappointed many observers by demonizing Nelson Mandela as a communist.

Let’s Play Benghazi – A Game of Double Standards

Confirmed: The Immorality of the American Empire

John Brennan’s confirmation hearings finally drew some attention to the Obama administration’s shredding of the Constitution but left the biggest questions unasked and unanswered. What else should one expect from the finest government that money can buy?

Fool Me Twice: The Iranian Crisis and the Evil of Popular Passivity

Fool Me Twice: The Iranian Crisis and the Evil of Popular Passivity

The Leesburg Daily Commercial, like the rest of the mainstream media, continues to present Iran as a grave threat to American interests. It is nothing of the kind, but We the People have abdicated our responsibility to protest against the dreadful consequences of our imperial war machine’s relentless advance.
