It's official: the US is funding Middle-East jihadists!


We should not expect the truth from the corrupted establishment who fiercely fought Bernie Sanders, for example. We should expect it from someone who supported him. Indeed, the Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who resigned as DNC vice-chair on February 28, 2016, in order to endorse Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination, and actually was the first female US Representative to endorse Sanders, 'dared' to introduce bill so that the US to stop arming terrorists!

Her words left no doubt of who is behind the dirty war in Syria and the chaos in the Middle East:

Mr. speaker, under US law, it is illegal for you, or me, or any American, to provide any type of assistance to Al-Qaeda, ISIS, or other terrorist groups. If we broke this law, we'll be thrown in jail.

Yet the US government has been violating this law for years, directly and indirectly supporting allies and partners of groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS, with money, weapons, intelligence and other support in their fight to overthrow the Syrian government.

A recent NY Times article, confirmed that rebel groups supported by the US 'have entered into battlefield alliances with the affiliate of al-Qaeda in Syria, formerly known as al Nusra.' The Wall Street Journal reports that rebel groups are 'doubling down on their alliance with al-Qaeda'. This alliance has rendered the phrase 'moderate rebels' meaningless.

We must stop this madness.We must stop arming terrorists.

I'm introducing the Stop Arming Terrorists act today, to prohibit taxpayer dollars for being used to support terrorists.


Speaking on CNN, Gabbard specifically named CIA as the agency that supports terrorist groups in the Middle East:

        The US government has been providing money, weapons, intel. assistance and other types of support through the CIA, directly to these groups that are working with and are affiliated with Al-Qaeda and ISIS.

Also, Gabbard specifically named the allies through which the US assist these terrorist groups:

     We've also been providing that support through countries like Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar ...

Speaking on NPR, Gabbard explained that she was working on the issue of the US interventionist, regime-change wars for years since she has been in Congress. Therefore, her position coincides with that of Donald Trump who repeatedly declared his opposition to these wars. This was also the main reason for which she endorsed Bernie Sanders:

SIMON: You and President-elect Trump are obviously of different parties. But don't you kind of have the same position on Syria?

GABBARD: I have heard him talk about his opposition to continuing interventionist, regime-change wars. I want to be clear, though, that this is an issue that I have been working on for years since I have been in Congress. And it's one...

SIMON: It's why you endorsed Senator Sanders, isn't it?

GABBARD: It's - correct. It was a clear difference between Senator Sanders and Secretary Clinton. I am hopeful that this new administration coming in will change these policies so that we don't continue making these destructive decisions, as have been made in the past.

This is really a unique moment, showing the absolute failure of the US obsolete, dirty policies and the degree of degeneration of the 'idealistic' picture of the Unites States as the number one global power. We can't remember any moment in the past in which a congressman was seeking to pass a bill to prohibit the US government funding terrorists, or, a newly elected president who, in his campaigns, was stating clearly that the previous administration created many terrorist groups.

  1. Arming our enemies is Treason. Tell your Congressional Representatives this, that they are party to such Treason, Misprision of Treason, if they do nothing.

US-backed counter-revolution coup against Cuba blatantly fails

globinfo freexchange   Since at least early 2018, the US imperialists were setting the stage for another coup against Cuba in the form of a "color revolution".  As reported back then:   The US State Department announced a new program called 'The Cuba Internet Task Force'. The Task Force will consist of the US government and non-governmental representatives to "promote the free and unregulated flow of information in Cuba". It is part of the National Security Presidential Memorandum of "strengthening the policy of the United States toward Cuba", that was issued by President Trump in June 2017.   This policy seeks "advancing Cuban human rights; encouraging the growth of a Cuban private sector independent of government control; enforcing final orders of removal against Cuban nationals in the United States". The US has sought to overthrow the Cuban government ever since the 1959 revolution. This is not the first time the US has attempted to

Chris Hedges on Assange, Donziger, & the US prison state

Redacted Tonight   Chris Hedges joins Lee Camp for a conversation around his latest book about teaching in American prisons. They also discuss corruption in the media and the U.S. System of Justice. The persecution of Julian Assange and Steven Donziger have garnered attention over the last few weeks for their egregious displays of judicial corruption in service of the world’s most powerful people. Hedges provides context for your outrage in their cases. He then reveals his experiences teaching prisoners in maximum security facilities and expresses support for incarcerated people who have chosen to protest their living conditions.

Alert: US imperialists prepare counter-revolution coup on November 15th to take over Cuba!

globinfo freexchange   On November 1st, Lee Camp appeared astonished by the fact that the State Department essentially announced a US-backed coup against Cuba in advance!  And not only that. The US imperialists revealed the specific method and the exact date of the counter-revolution coup! The method is the typical one that we've seen in various cases the last decade or so, which involves a type of "color revolution". The date: November 15th. On November 2nd, cadenagramonte.cu website gave the details and the key players of the operation.   On November 3rd, TeleSUR reported that:                                A Cuban government representative said that Cuba has probably been facing up the largest and most complex cultural warfare operation orchestrated by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), promoting a new type of counterrevolution. On Twitter, Cuba's Deputy Foreign Minister Anayansi Rodríguez posted a U.S. plan to bring Cuba's political system down, whic

Οι ολιγάρχες ετοιμάζουν το Plan B που είχαν στο συρτάρι: Συγκυβέρνηση ΝΔ-ΚΙΝΑΛ και επιστροφή της γαλαζοπράσινης λαίλαπας

globinfo freexchange   Το άκρως φιλοκυβερνητικό Βήμα , κομμάτι της συστημικής προπαγάνδας της εγχώριας ολιγαρχίας, έδωσε χθες το σύνθημα για το Plan B των ολιγαρχών που είχαν στο συρτάρι ως εναλλακτική, καθώς δεν χρειάστηκε να το θέσουν σε εφαρμογή, λόγω της αυτοδυναμίας που πέτυχε η Μητσοτακική δεξιά στις εκλογές του Ιουλίου του 2019.    Πρόκειται το σενάριο συγκυβέρνησης ΝΔ-ΚΙΝΑΛ.  Όπως είχαμε γράψει τον Ιούνιο του 19, η ΝΔ (με ή χωρίς δεκανίκια), έχει ως μοναδική αποστολή να συνεχίσει το "λαμπρό" της έργο από εκεί που το άφησε. Βέβαια, η "Αριστερή παρένθεση", που η Τρόικα εσωτερικού και εξωτερικού φρόντισε έτσι και αλλιώς να κουρελιάσει, κράτησε λίγο παραπάνω απ'ότι υπολόγισαν τα "μεγάλα αφεντικά". Τώρα, ήρθε η ώρα να ξεκουμπιστεί, διότι υπάρχει κίνδυνος να θυμηθεί τις Αριστερές της καταβολές και να καταστρέψει το "θεάρεστο" σχέδιο του νεοφιλελεύθερου ιερατείου. Απ'ότι φαίνεται, υπάρχουν πρόθυμα δεκανίκια, για παν ενδεχόμενο. Από τότ

Visionary realism: A green future beyond capitalism - Yanis Varoufakis, Ann Pettifor & Noam Chomsky

DiEM25   "There is no alternative", "it's the end of history" in the shadow of the 2008 crash, the environmental crisis and ongoing COVID19 pandemic, never has the hubris of these words been more striking. Nevertheless if we are in fact at the end of an era, what comes next? Join us in uncovering the exciting possibilities that the future can hold with public intellectual Noam Chomsky and economists Ann Pettifor and Yanis Varoufakis. 

The most important battle for Press Freedom in our time

If he is extradited and found guilty of publishing classified material it will set a legal precedent that will effectively end national security reporting.   by Chris Hedges  Part 1 For the past two days, I have been watching the extradition hearing for Julian Assange via video link from London. The United States is appealing a lower court ruling that denied the US request to extradite Assange not, unfortunately, because in the eyes of the court he is innocent of a crime, but because, as Judge Vanessa Baraitser in January concluded, Assange’s precarious psychological state would deteriorate given the “ harsh conditions ” of the inhumane US prison system, “ causing him to commit suicide .” The United States has charged Assange with 17 counts under the Espionage Act and one count of trying to hack into a government computer, charges that could see him imprisoned for 175 years. Assange, with long white hair, appeared on screen the first day from the video conference room in HM Prison Belm

Top 1% of US earners now hold more wealth than all of the middle class

by Alexandre Tanzi and Mike Dorning  After years of declines, America’s middle class now holds a smaller share of U.S. wealth than the top 1%. The middle 60% of U.S. households by income -- a measure economists often use as a definition of the middle class -- saw their combined assets drop to 26.6% of national wealth as of June, the lowest in Federal Reserve data going back three decades. For the first time, the super rich had a bigger share, at 27%. The data offer a window into the slow-motion erosion in the financial security of mid-tier earners that has fueled voters’ discontent in recent years. That continued through the Covid-19 pandemic, despite trillions of dollars in government relief .   Rise of the Super Rich   Middle-class Americans now hold less wealth than the top 1% by income.   While “middle class” has different meanings to different people, many economists use income to define the group. The 77.5 million families in the middle 60% make about $27,000 to $141,000 annually

Top media company demands reporters write pro-US/EU/Israel propaganda

The Grayzone   The major media company Axel Springer SE, which owns Politico, Business Insider , and top German newspapers, was exposed for forcing its employees to write pro-US/EU/Israel propaganda. It has also been accused of being funded by the CIA. 

US govt-backed social media companies meddle in Nicaragua's elections

The Grayzone   Remember Russiagate claims of "Kremlin meddling"? Well, the US government is blatantly interfering in Nicaragua's elections. Ben Norton and Max Blumenthal discuss how, mere days before Nicaragua's November 7 elections, Meta/Facebook/Instagram, Twitter, and Google/YouTube purged thousands of pro-Sandinista journalists, activists, and media outlets. Meanwhile, the US Congress voted for more crushing sanctions.   They address the gaping holes in Facebook's bogus report falsely claiming the Sandinistas it purged were " government-run troll accounts, " which was written by former Pentagon-funded NATO press officer Ben Nimmo, a symbol of how social media corporations have effectively merged with the US government.
