Masks fall at last: Bernie officially declares war on corporate Dems who seek to survive around Warren

On early June, Politico published an article which actually unfolded, in plain sight, the plans of the corporate branch of the Democratic party to stop Bernie Sanders.

As we wrote back then:

This is an amazingly straight admission by the establishment apparatus, concerning a certain strategy as part of the whole anti-Sanders operation. And it is also clear that Elizabeth Warren is establishment's key player around this strategy.

Perhaps it's not accidental that this article was published right after Elizabeth Warren signaled to the establishment that she will 'play by the rules' at least on some issues, through her neocon-style statement on Julian Assange.

Only a couple of weeks later, Politico revealed Warren's upgraded role in the anti-Sanders operation. According to a new article, "Centrists who once said the senator would lead the party to ruin are coming around to her as an alternative to Bernie Sanders." It seems almost certain that Elizabeth Warren 'passed the exams' and gave her credentials to the establishment. Consequently, corporate democrats (or liberals, neoliberals, centrists - call them whatever you like), decided that she is the most suitable for this special mission.

The article actually identifies the completion of Warren's mutation towards the establishment positions of the Democratic party, that is, status quo neoliberalism. But also, her mission to grab votes from the progressive vote tank in order to split the progressive vote, and therefore, to restrict the power of Bernie Sanders and minimize his chances to win the Democratic nomination. For example:

"It’s a sign of how the ideological lanes of the 2020 primary have blurred and overlapped and of the steady progress Warren is making as a candidate. But it’s also a statement on Bernie Sanders, Warren’s top rival for progressive votes."

and

"Establishment and moderate Democrats haven’t necessarily been won over to Warren’s camp yet — many still point to former Vice President Joe Biden as their preferred candidate. But the tensions that once marked Warren’s relationship with moderate Democrats have begun to dissipate as she methodically lays out her agenda and shows a folksier, more accessible side that wasn’t always apparent in her role as a blue-state senator and progressive icon.

The article contains some statements from establishment think tanks, full of typical neoliberal euphemisms, showing that, indeed, Warren passed 'establishment's tests', and therefore, the establishment apparatus can trust her.

But all these, weren't 'big news' for many progressives out there. They realized Warren's role in the whole story quite early. Perhaps the biggest surprise was Bernie's response (at last) through a tweet, who seems that he can't tolerate another round of sinister strategies and dirty wars against him.

Bernie wrote:

         The cat is out of the bag. The corporate wing of the Democratic Party is publicly "anybody but Bernie." They know our progressive agenda of Medicare for All, breaking up big banks, taking on drug companies and raising wages is the real threat to the billionaire class.


This is the official declaration of war against corporate Democrats by the progressives. The neoliberal centrists can't hide anymore and voters should realize that they have nothing to offer. No matter what tricks they will try this time, no matter what words they will use. Nothing will change if they manage to maintain power in the Democratic party by beating Bernie again.

Now it's clear. The outcome of this civil war inside the party will determine whether it will remain in the hands of corporations, or, return (through Bernie) to its traditional 'owners': the American working class.

It was about time. Perhaps Bernie should have done it earlier, but better late than never ...

Former CIA high-ranking official accidentally reveals the type of the false flag operation that the US imperialists will orchestrate to start a war with Iran

globinfo freexchange
In the following video, Jimmy Dore makes an analysis of an interview that the former CIA deputy director, Michael Morell, gave on CBS, regarding the recent developments after the assassination of the Iranian major general, Qasem Soleimani. 
Morell describes a probable scenario according to which the Iranians and their proxies could retaliate further. And therefore, this will naturally and eventually lead the US to start a war with Iran. As Morell points out:
                    Hopefully, that can de-escalate now, but that doesn't mean the covert war is over. [...] There are two things we need to think about here. One is, still, down the road, at some point, an assassination of a senior US official, somewhere in the world, could be months from now, to get revenge. And then, two, we still have to worry about those Iranian proxies. They may still attack US military bases ...

Note, that this interview was taken AFTER the Iranian retaliation through the missile att…

Μα καλά, δεν βρέθηκε ένας να του δείξει ως που μπορούν να φτάσουν οι Ιρανικοί πύραυλοι;

failed evolution
Οι φάπες πέφτουν σύννεφο και απ'ότι φαίνεται, στις όποιες διαπραγματεύσεις, η σημερινή κυβέρνηση παριστάνει τη γλάστρα, χωρίς να απαιτεί το παραμικρό.
Και σαν να μην έφταναν όλα αυτά, ο Κούλης έσπευσε να επικροτήσει την απαράδεκτη ενέργεια του Τραμπ να δώσει εντολή για τη δολοφονία του κορυφαίου Ιρανού στρατηγού, Κασέμ Σουλεϊμανί.  
Δυστυχώς, είχαμε και πάλι δίκιο. Η χώρα ήδη πληρώνει την απόλυτα ανεύθυνη στάση Μητσοτάκη, καθώς το Ιράν προέβη σε έντονο διάβημα διαμαρτυρίας, με τον Ιρανό πρέσβη να φέρεται να δηλώνει ότι «Ούτε άλλες χώρες της ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης με τις οποίες έχουμε κακές σχέσεις δεν τοποθετήθηκαν έτσι». 
Όμως το Ιράν φαίνεται να προχώρησε παραπέρα, θέτοντας θέμα Αμερικανικών βάσεων στην Ελλάδα, στέλνοντας μια επιστολή στην Καθημερινή και αναφέροντας, μεταξύ άλλων: "Η Ισλαμική Δημοκρατία του Ιράν έχει δηλώσει ξεκάθαρα ότι σε περίπτωση επιβολής πολέμου κατά της χώρας από την Αμερική, η διάθεση βάσεων από οποιαδήποτε χώρα στον αμερικανικό εισβολέα …

Why the US imperialists will start a war with Iran right after the 2020 US presidential election

by system failure
Even before 2016 US presidential election we were arguing in this blog that Donald Trump is only the reserve of the establishment, a necessity solution. The first signs, right after his election, were indicating that we were right. Trump literally hired Goldman Sachs to run the economy and immediately authorized further tax-cuts for the super-rich, contrary to his pre-election rhetoric.
Then, things got even worse by hiring some of the most bloodthirsty neocons in key positions. Trump's 'anti-establishment' facade was rapidly collapsing as he was  starting to move towards the US deep state agenda. In fact, the only card left to play was that of his alleged 'anti-interventionism'. Yet, he succumbed further to the US pro-war cabal by bombing Syria, without even waiting to see some evidence about Assad's alleged chemical attacks against civilians. 
Beyond that, he continued Obama's awful legacy regarding the war in Yemen, by arming Saudis and…

US deep state scenarios on cancelling 2020 election: securing a war with Iran and marking the definite end of Democracy in America

globinfo freexchange
On January 14, the blog published an article about a potential oncoming war between the US and Iran. We estimated that it is unlikely the US deep state to start a war before the 2020 presidential election. Otherwise, as we wrote, the deep state would have to take the risk of some extreme solutions. Like, for example, an 'emergency situation' plan on the pretext of the war, in order to postpone the election and, at the same time, extent Trump's presidency. With all the chaos and the rising popular anger, the whole country would soon be getting into 'uncharted waters'.
Yet, it seems that such a scenario not only exists, but it was designed by an Israeli private company. And moreover, it appears that the company is deeply connected with the deep state and the Trump administration.

We found that MintPress News published an article, written by Whitney Webb, on the same day with our article above, giving the full details. As Webb reported: [most im…

Ex-US intel officer: Pompeo 'lying through his teeth' on Iran

The Grayzone
The Trump administration is imposing new sanctions on Iran and defying Iraq's call for a US troop withdrawal. This comes as the stated rationale for the US assassination of Qasem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis is being undermined by its top officials' own statements. Scott Ritter, a former Marine Corps intelligence officer, analyzes the increased White House coercion efforts and collapsing intelligence claims.

Big tech firms are joining Trump’s all out war against Iran

Deleting messages of support for Iran may seem a petty, childish retaliation for opposing the Trump administration, but it has profound ramifications for freedom of access to information.
by Alan Macleod 
Silicon Valley giant Facebook announced Friday that it would be deleting all positive posts about recently assassinated Iranian general Qassem Soleimani on its platform and its subsidiary Instagram. The reason for this, it explained to CNN, was that the new U.S. sanctions made it illegal to promote any message supporting a person or group that the government describes as a terrorist organization. “We operate under U.S. sanctions laws, including those related to the U.S. government’s designation of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and its leadership,” a Facebook spokesperson said. 
Instagram had already closed Soleimani’s account in April last year, following Trump’s designation of the IRGC as a terrorist group. Following the news Friday, Twitter suspended Iranian Supreme L…

Bolivia’s free territory of Chapare has ousted the coup regime and is bracing for a bloody re-invasion

Spending time with the union members of Chapare, who run society in a collective fashion, offers special insights into the resistance to the coup. They succeeded in expelling the police, but now fear a bloodbath in retaliation.

by Ollie Vargas
Part 1

Known as Bolivia’s Chapare region, the Tropico of Cochabamba is a sanctuary for elected President Evo Morales’ most dedicated base of support. Since the November 10 coup, it has effectively become a self-governing territory where the military junta is absent.

The police and military were sent in full retreat from this area the coup began and were told they would only be welcomed back if the they “get on their knees and apologize” to the community.

In this 12,000 square kilometer swath of land, hundreds of unions have flourished over the years. I spent several days with the union rank and file, witnessing how they run society in a collective fashion, and how they have organized ferocious resistance to a right-wing coup government that threat…

Εξωτερική πολιτική για κλάματα: το Μητσοτακικό καθεστώς βάζει τη χώρα σε νέες περιπέτειες

globinfo freexchange

Πιστεύαμε ότι η κυβέρνηση Τσίπρα 'το είχε τερματίσει' όταν αποφάσισε (προφανώς μετά από έντονες Αμερικανικές πιέσεις) να προβεί στην ανήκουστη και απαράδεκτη ενέργεια να απελάσει τους τέσσερις Ρώσους διπλωμάτες. Το Μητσοτακικό καθεστώς όμως φαίνεται ότι έχει κάνει νέο ρεκόρ πλήρους υποταγής στους Αμερικανούς ιμπεριαλιστές, δίνοντας το τελειωτικό χτύπημα στην ευελιξία της εξωτερικής πολιτικής που θα έπρεπε να έχει, έτσι και αλλιώς, κάθε σοβαρή και ανεξάρτητη χώρα. 
Όμως η δήλωση Μητσοτάκη απλώς επιβεβαίωσε ότι η νεοφιλελεύθερη Μητσοτακική δεξιά, η χειρότερη που γνώρισε η χώρα μεταπολιτευτικά, είναι απόλυτα υπόδουλη στα Αμερικανικά συμφέροντα. Και τελικά, πως η ίδια η χώρα, είναι ένα Δυτικό προτεκτοράτο και μια κανονική αποικία (και όχι απλά αποικία χρέους).
Ο χειρότερος Μητσοτάκης όλων των εποχών αποφάσισε να επισκεφτεί τον Ντόναλντ Τραμπ για να κάνει το πιστό του 'ρομποτάκι', δηλώνοντας ουσιαστικά ότι επικροτεί την εγκληματική ενέργεια - πέρα από κ…

Iran leader vows 'harsh revenge' following assassination of Gen. Soleimani

In a statement on Friday, Ayatollah Khamenei said the “cruelest people on earth” assassinated the “honorable” commander who “courageously fought for years against the evils and bandits of the world.

His demise will not stop his mission, but the criminals who have the blood of General Soleimani and other martyrs of the Thursday night attack on their hands must await a harsh revenge, the Leader added.

Martyr Soleimani is an international figure of the Resistance, and all the devotees of Resistance are now his avengers,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

"All the friends and foes must know that the path of Jihad of the Resistance will continue with double motivation, and a definite victory awaits those who fight in this auspicious path," the Leader said.

The demise of our selfless and dear general is bitter, but the continued fight and achievement of the final victory will make life bitterer for the murderers and criminals,” he added.

In his statement, the Leader also offered condo…
