Bern This! Why is Karl Rove a “Bernie Bro’?”

Karl Rove’s Amer­i­can Cross­roads orga­ni­za­tion has been chan­nel­ing money to Bernie Sanders’ cam­paign. This, alone, should make think­ing peo­ple ask seri­ous ques­tions about Saint Bernard. Other ques­tions the Sanderis­tas are not ask­ing include: Why has Sanders been cited by the Fed­eral Elec­tions Com­mis­sion three times?; why haven’t the media asked ques­tions about his Communist/radical past, includ­ing run­ning as a Pres­i­den­tial elec­tor for the Trot­skyite Social­ist Work­ers’ Party in 1980; just what was his wife’s role in the col­lapse of Burling­ton Col­lege?; why has Sanders been so reluc­tant to release his tax infor­ma­tion?; why is he repeat­ing the GOP theme of Hillary as “a liar?;” why is Gra­ham E. Fuller, a promi­nent advo­cate of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood and rad­i­cal Islam pro­mot­ing Bernie Sanders?

FTR #906 The Destabilization of Hillary Clinton

Ana­lyz­ing the media’s psy­cho­log­i­cal war­fare against Hillary Clin­ton, we note how much of the “neg­a­tive narrative”–including asser­tions par­roted by Bernie Sanders and his associates–about her comes from the right-wing media attack machine. How many peo­ple note, for exam­ple, that the Inspec­tor General’s refer­ral to the Jus­tice Depart­ment was not crim­i­nal? We note that George H.W. Bush–the man for whom CIA head­quar­ters was named–was defeated for re-election by Bill Clin­ton. Fox News is headed by Roger Ailes, who was George H.W. Bush’s cam­paign direc­tor. Much of the media/internet cov­er­age of Hillary comes from Fox, echoed duti­fully by other, so-called “respon­si­ble” media out­lets. It should be noted that both “The New York Times” and “The Wash­ing­ton Post” have long­stand­ing ties to the CIA. Both papers have contracted–along with Fox News–for excerpts from a book titled “Clin­ton Cash,” authored by Peter Schweizer, a Koch broth­ers polit­i­cal spear car­rier and for­mer adviser to Sarah Palin. We note that the Cit­i­zens United deci­sion had as its cen­ter­piece an anti-Hillary movie called Hillary Clin­ton: The Movie. Not sur­pris­ingly, the New York Times has fea­tured slanted cov­er­age of the Clin­ton e-mail non-scandal. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Review of FBI direc­tor James Comey’s work as a Mitt Rom­ney sup­porter in 2012; Hillary Clinton’s vot­ing record as the 11th most lib­eral Sen­a­tor; CNBC’s “Morn­ing Joe” program’s delib­er­ate dis­tor­tion of Wash­ing­ton Post colum­nist David Ignatius’s state­ments on the Hillary Clin­ton e-mail non-scandal; Joe “Morn­ing Joe” Scarborough’s role as a GOP mem­ber of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives; CNBC owner Chris Burke’s major con­tri­bu­tions to George W. Bush’s campaigns.


Echoes of Maidan: Yugoslavia (Yesterday); Ukraine (Today)

We’ve been cov­er­ing infor­ma­tion point­ing to the sniper fire that ignited the Maidan coup as hav­ing come from the anti-government forces. Not sur­pris­ingly, per­son­nel from Svo­boda and the fas­cist “pun­isher bat­tal­ions” crop up repeat­edy in the unfold­ing nar­ra­tive. German-Foreign-Policy.com fea­tures a com­par­i­son with the “cook­ing” of jour­nal­is­tic infor­ma­tion about Ukraine with what took place in the for­mer Yugoslavia, the NATO oper­a­tion against Kosovo, in par­tic­u­lar.

Benghazi Follies

With the polit­i­cal firestorm gen­er­ated by the GOP over the Beng­hazi attack in 2012, it is cer­tainly inter­est­ing and pos­si­bly very rel­e­vant to note that the C.I.A. base chief ordered five com­man­dos guard­ing the base to stand down, thereby enabling the lethal vio­lence that claimed the life of the Amer­i­can ambas­sador to Libya. One won­ders if the delay was in fact to pre­cip­i­tate the lethal deba­cle being uti­lized by the Repub­li­cans in their anti-Clinton, anti-Obama propaganda?


FTR #767 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 11: The Destabilization of the NSA and GCHQ

The activ­i­ties of Eddie the Friendly Spook make no sense in the con­text of civil lib­er­ties. They make a great deal of sense in terms of the desta­bi­liza­tion of the Obama admin­is­tra­tion, the NSA and the GCHQ. Snow­den may have taken up to 1.7 mil­lion doc­u­ments, includ­ing infor­ma­tion that could per­mit a male­fac­tor to suc­cess­fully evade NSA scrutiny. Snowden’s activ­i­ties may lead to nul­li­fi­ca­tion of the NSA plans to defend against cyberterrorism.


FTR #670 Update on the Meltdown, Part 3: Top Banana Republic

U.S. is beset by the same struc­tural eco­nomic and polit­i­cal prob­lems as Emerg­ing Mar­ket coun­tries; Will the “Top Banana Repub­lic” pull through? Or will we bring the rest of the world down?

The Meaning of Timothy McVeigh

by Gore Vidal VANITY FAIR Toward the end of the last cen­tury but one, Richard Wag­ner made a visit to the south­ern Ital­ian town of Rav­ello, where he was shown the gar­dens of the thousand-year-old Villa Rufolo. “Mae­stro,” asked the head gar­dener, “do not these fan­tas­tic gar­dens ‘neath yon­der azure sky that blends in such [...]
