George Clooney held a 350,000 a plate fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, which led to protests from those fed up with money in politics who threw money at Hillary Clinton’s motorcade as she drove to the actor’s mansion. Chuck Todd had Clooney on Meet The Press.
CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—The US-centralized power alliance is so powerful in its ability to hurt nations with financial influence that in 1990 when Yemen voted against a UN Security Council Resolution authorizing the attack against Iran, a senior US diplomat was caught on a hot mic telling the Yemeni ambassador, “That will be the most expensive ‘no’ vote you ever cast.” According to German author Thomas Pogge, “The US stopped $70 million in aid to Yemen; other Western countries, the IMF, and World Bank followed suit. Saudi Arabia expelled some 800,000 Yemeni workers, many of whom had lived there for years and were sending urgently needed money to their families.” That’s real power. Not the ability to destroy a nation with bombs and missiles, but the ability to destroy it without firing a shot.

MARGARET KIMBERLEY—Endless war is all that the U.S. and its puppets have to offer. Russiagate is a cynical ruse meant to obscure the bipartisan war party consensus. Neither Bernie Sanders nor any other Democrat will put up true resistance. They are either true believers in America’s self-proclaimed right to do whatever it wants or they are cowards who won’t speak up. In the end it doesn’t matter which label fits. If they don’t object the war of terror against the rest of the world will continue. One moment the government hatches a plot against Venezuela and when that stalls they fall back on making Iran look like a villain. The only certainty is that America is the true villain and its threats endanger the whole world.
CHRISTOPHER BLACK—The US economic and military aggression against those nations that refuse to obey American demands to serve their interests ever increases and never abates. A few days ago Mike Pompeo stated, with feigned innocence, that the US was willing to talk to Iran “without preconditions” when the real conditions Iran faces include an almost total embargo of its trade and threats of immediate attack by US forces, including nuclear attack. The Iranians quickly rejected this hypocrisy.
