The New York Times meets with Trump—two takes

“TRUMP’s right about major media fake news with a caveat. To a fault, he loves Fox News, appearing on the cable channel regularly, along with relying on its fake news for information he considers reliable – far from it. US print, cable and broadcast news suppress vital information important for everyone to know, especially on geopolitical issues, notably on Russia and other invented US adversaries. They cheerlead US wars of aggression, reporting nothing about about its high crimes of war and against humanity, falsely blaming them on victims. They serve as press agents for wealth, power and privilege, betraying their readers and viewers, feeding them rubbish, journalism the way it should be abandoned…”—S. LENDMAN

Nicaragua Defeats The Not-So-Soft Coup

In Masaya, opposition activists tortured, murdered and burned police officer Gabriel Vado Ruiz and would have done the same to another police officer, Rodrigo Barrios Flores, had he not escaped from his captors after enduring two days of torture and abuse.

Amnesty International and fellow coup apologists such as Bianca Jagger and SOS Nicaragua, along with their allies in corporate media such as the Guardian, Telegraph, Washington Post, New York Times, Al Jazeera, CNN, BBC, all cover up very serious human rights violations by the opposition activists during the failed attempted coup against Nicaragua’s legitimate government.

Iran’s Basij: The reason why land or civil war inside Iran is impossible

RAMIN MAZAHERI—The Basij are also not comparable to Nazi Brownshirts or Italian Blackshirts. The reason for this simple: Iran has a modern, democratic, anti-racist, anti-imperialist & anti-capitalist ideology which is fundamentally different from the fascist, imperialist, war-mongering, racist, faux-socialist ideology of those two European groups. No such comparison is legitimate in the slightest, and it is fear-mongering anti-Iranian propaganda not based on facts.
