America Has Been Invading Syria Since 2012, Under Obama

Isaam Zahreddine “Lion of the Republican Guard” Syrian Army

You probably haven’t heard about the general who saved his people from the Saudi/American sponsored ISIL Seige of Syria in 2013.

If your government is funding and celebrating the destruction of a nation, do you trust its media or some shitty subreddit for the truth? Who knows what truth is, but here’s some counter-points to the mainstream narrative about one man Issam Zahreddine. It’s been 6 months since his death from a landmine, hopefully these memes will one day be recognized as some of the more honest reflections on America’s decades long attempted invasion and destruction of Syria.

Brexit, Trump, & the Bursting Neoliberal Bubble ft. Mark Blyth

America is getting ready to go to war with Syria, Russia, and Iran. We must stop this empire from starting another war.

The US media has seized on the latest claims by CIA-backed groups of a poison gas attack on civilians to demand a further escalation of the US-led war for regime-change in Syria and an increased confrontation with Russia.

Israel, Russia, and Amazon. April 2018.

Jimmy Dore

The damaging impact of concentration of wealth and power corrupting governments can be seen all over the world today. Imperialism is subjugating Palestinians in open air prisons, Syrians in a proxy war aimed at Russia, and Americans in a crushing failing capitalist society.

Bernie Sanders: "Barack Obama is a brilliant guy, an extraordinary candidate, and a charasmatic leader"

Jimmy Dore

The business model of the democratic model is a failure, they've lost all power in American government, and the media are their attack dogs for anyone who criticizes their failures.

The Global Financial Crisis of 2018 is Starting to Get Noticed

There has to be a movement from below otherwise there's no counter force that can take us in another direction.

Today was a bloody day on Wall Street, and the articles have started pouring in, admittedly it’s been a bloody month, quarter, and year, but finally the media is ready to start realizing there is that there is too much debt, not enough wages, no real profits, a new oil standard, overpriced assets, and too much inequality. That’s a bit too much to take a for country that isn’t a democracy, is ignoring climate change, starting trade wars, and being run by sociopath.

I don’t Want to Die in America

I moved here for work, I will not stay here until death.

These magnficant American lands are filled with beautiful people, living in a poisoned culture which is killing both. That’s why I became so anxious. That’s why I sunk into depression. That’s why I stopped caring about anything, anyone. That’s why I left New York. That’s why I made jobs in Perth. That’s why I will go home. That’s where I’ll die, as we all do.

Americans are Scared of Americans, Not Guns

They've been programmed to be scared of each other, they don't know who to trust, and some of them are willing to kill over that.

As an American You lay in bed at night staring at the ceiling, worrying about tomorrow, what it will bring, what it will change, what it will kill. It’s not a question of whether these things will happen, you know they will, something always happens, and it’s going to be in your face, and it’s going to make you feel horrible. Teenager guns down his classmates because of violet video games Cop shoots a child because black teenagers are out of control The US government bombed a wedding because the groom hated freedom Your stupid dickhead of a president opened his dumb fucking mouth again So you want to ban all guns because horrible people do fucked up things that result in the death of people who look like you.

This Gun Debate Ignores Empire's Power

Killer Mike

It's not even a debate, it's just another idealogy laced fight between the lower classes, a distraction from the real threat of Empire.

Of course people are jumping on Killer Mike because he appeared on NRA TV to provide a position that taking away people’s guns will not solve the issues America is facing. I have worked as a tireless advocate on the behalf of children and disenfranchised women in society, I’ve also worked with gun groups like Georgians’ Against Gun Violence, so I say if there’s a table to be sat at, a gun owner needs to be there.

How Can The Enemy State, Have Citizens This Friendly?

The American people are our brothers and sisters, The American Government is the enemy to life on Earth. We have to love the people, the people have to reclaim their government and change its ways. Before it's too late.

I feel so much love in this place, this community in Colorado where I am surrounded by amazing people who are doing all they can to make the world better. But any time I start reading up on the latest happenings in “the world” I am bombarded with just how horrible, cruel, and desperate the US government has become. Today we had Ann Coulter come at Trump hard for signing the $1.

The Shifting Russia Narrative

Have you been keeping up since Russia cheated in the olympics, hacked the election, gassed Syria, and now failed to very publicly kill a spy?

So now that we know it was Steve Bannon using the same Facebook backdoor that the Obama campaign used in 2012, we’re not talking about the hacked election story anymore? Crazy how the week that story left the media it was because Russia had apparently obviously failed to kill an old spy, in London, on ally territory. This ever shifting narrative is the work of an empire’s mass media which is dedicated to manufacturing consent to allow America to start a war against Russia.

Getting in Trouble

All my life I've been getting in trouble and been afraid of getting in trouble. I'm not afraid anymore and you can't be either, because we really need your help.

I hadn’t been using my blog because I was afraid to, afraid of what would happen if I wrote about what I was thinking. When I was 18 I used to write about getting tattoos and making money to get tattoos. These days I write about the atrocities committed by the American Empire both locally and globally, I write in protest to a system so corrupted by power that its current course is set on destroying all life as we know it.

The Greatest Threat To All Life on Earth, America

Acknowledge that the American people are not their government, and that their government will kill everyone... if that’s a profitable solution.

Russia is not going to launch a nuke. Islam is not going to kill western values. Climate change is already killing people daily. The American government will kill everyone if it can’t maintain its control over everything. War with Russia is not acceptable. America has no right to wave a moral finger at any nation in the world. America is not a democracy. America is a corporate plutocracy. America is a dying nation.

American Mass Media is Propaganda

Caitlin Johnstone

It's a word that confuses and scares most Americans, yet propaganda is responsible for their apathy towards their horrible ruling elite.

I Love Americans, I Love Russians

"America itself could be described as one gigantic ongoing psyop" - Caitlin Johnstone

I love Americans, I’ve even been in love with a few of them, they are good-hearted human beings, for the most part, like most people, for the most part. I love Russians, I am the son and brother of Russians, they are good-hearted human beings, like most other people. I’ve never lived in Russia, I’ve never experienced their day-to-day life, their culture first hand, their language surrounding me, their food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, their entertainment and advertising filling my waking moments.

Your President is Horrible, Your Boss is Worse, and Your Board Even More So

Trump is doing horrible things, because horrible people have all the money and power.

The day after he won the election, people in our New York office were crying, devistated that such a horrible person had taken control of one of the most evil imperialist nations to exist. They’re some of the lucky ones in America, though not truly that lucky in the scheme of things. The company they work for is, comparitively much more generous than other American organizations. Around that time our office was also subjected to the picketing of the Verizon store below us, the shouts of the subjugated workers all day long were distracting to our workers, who were sent home early because it was obvious no work was being done.

America Will Collapse, Earth Will Boil, and Humanity Will Perish

Understanding this will help you plan for your future.

America Will Collapse As an Australian who spent 6 years in the hyper-capitalist center of the world (New York City) I’ve had to improve my coping mechanisms immensely as the harsh reality of massive inequality was shoved in my face. Last year I moved to a small town in Colorado to run-out-the-clock as I shift my career back to Perth to get away from a nation that’s tearing itself apart.

Bringing Down Civilization, The Violence of Capitalism

America Needed Bernie Sanders, a Politician, not a Corporate Stooge

There was no difference between Trump and Clinton, they both represented the elite class interests'.

The tension between North Korea and the United States is becoming increasingly tense which is causing further tensions with Russia, Syria, and China. If there are a bunch of kids in a group having problems with one particular child, who would you proclaim to be the protaganist? As always your perspective is going to be contextual on your relationship to the situation, are you the parent of the bully? You empathize with the child and know that its behavior is a result of further issues.

Who Is More Corrupt: Trump, Clinton or Obama? Surprising Answer!

Jimmy Dore

100 Days

In the American Media you’re hearing a lot right now about Trump’s first 100 days, people are (rightfully so) giving this topic a lot of attention. Understanding what this presidency focuses its attention on in its first days gives us an idea of where the administration is pointing our future. I had personally been thinking about these 100 days a lot lately, and honestly, it was making me extremely depressed, despondant, and anxious.

Noam Chomsky on Trump's First 75 Days

Recently Democracy Now interviewed Noam Chomsky on Trump’s first 75 Days as President, here’s some key points I took away from it. On the alleged interference of the election by Russia, Chomsky points out that America is constantly interfering with world politics and overthrowing governments. If Russia and Trump were to have a more positive relationship this would not be a negative thing at all, especially considering we’re at a really dangerous time.

Donald Trump's America Attacks Syria

My Response I am disappointment in Trump, to clarify I have no faith in him, I’ve never supported him, I don’t respect him. However I do know that before he became the president he was not part of the central powers that are intent on destroying the world in pursuit of more power. This was the one thing I thought he would do differently to Hillary, that he would opt for less conflict in order to focus on business.

America, Resist Donald Trump

I will begin to resist by writing more. Trump is proving to be the perfect distraction for the Republican party, he creates outrageous executive orders that consumes the public’s social media feeds. In the meantime the Republican controlled government carry out their systematic destruction of the services that were keeping America from both starting a nuclear war and bringing upon climate change harder and faster than ever.
