Freedom Rider: The Root and Russophobia
Margaret Kimberley: The scoundrels and misleaders in the Democratic Party are leaving no stone unturned in their effort to escape responsibility for their ignominious defeats. There is no evidence of the Russian government “hacking” the election. Instead evidence points to a leak at the Democratic National Committee which revealed the gory details of their corruption and incompetence. ... Members of the Congressional Black Caucus such as Barbara Lee and Maxine Waters have been in the forefront of this charade and now they have been joined by others. The Root online magazine announced it is joining this dubious group in doing the business of the bipartisan war party and the discredited democrats... Visit Website ]

Freedom Rider: The Defeat of American Workers
Margaret Kimberley: American workers have been completely crushed by capitalism. That is the goal of the capitalists after all but working people in this country have fallen further and faster because they are without any political friends and because they declare allegiance to a compromised political party. The evidence can be seen in the vote against union representation at the Renault-Nissan plant in Canton, Mississippi. Additional proof of the assault can be seen in the decision by the state of Wisconsin to promise electronics giant Foxconn $3 billion in subsidies to create 3,000 jobs... Visit Website ]

Israel’s War on Poetry
Stephen Lendman: The key way rogue states maintain power is by controlling the message, including by criminalizing legitimate dissent. ... Arab Israeli poet Dareen Tatour was imprisoned multiple times for criticizing repressive regime policies, including for her poem titled “Resist, My People, Resist Them” in response to Israel’s brutal murder of three Palestinian children. ... “Listen, my destiny, my life, to what the judge said: A poem stands accused, my poem morphs into a crime.

The Lie of Academic Freedom
Margaret Kimberley, BAR: Black Americans have never enjoyed the rights and the freedoms that their country claims to value. Academic freedom is just one of many concepts believed to be inviolate but which proves to be elusive when black people attempt to exercise it. Black academics are openly harassed, physically threatened and in constant danger of losing their jobs if they make any white person angry. This dynamic is especially problematic in an era when universities care more about raising money and staying in the good graces of the ruling classes than they do about education.... Visit Website ]

Top 6 Falsehoods Embraced by new WH Chief of Staff John Kelly
Juan Cole: 1. Kelly thinks we are under siege: “We are under attack from failed states, cyber-terrorists, vicious smugglers, and sadistic radicals. And we are under attack every single day. The threats are relentless.” ... As Michael Cohen wrote in response at the Boston Globe, “Cyber-terrorists have never killed an American citizen, no failed state threatens America and more Americans are killed by lightning strikes than sadistic radicals.”...

Shell, terrified of EVs, expects ‘low forever’ Gasoline Prices; it is too Optimistic
Juan Cole: The Telegraph reports that Royal Dutch Shell, the massive oil company, has abruptly decided that petroleum prices are likely to remain low “forever,” given the rise of the electric vehicle ... Most petroleum is used for transportation, and it is that sector that gives it its high value. It is also used for fertilizer production and plastics, but those sectors are very low-paying compared to transportation. Besides, if people have any sense they will soon start banning plastic, too. ... Without internal combustion engine vehicles on the road, petroleum will soon become all but worthless...

Democrats Smear Jill Stein
Margaret Kimberley, BAR: The Democratic Party’s Grand Inquisition has move leftward, targeting 2016 Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, whose political crime was to attend an RT dinner in Russia, the year before. The Democrats are trying to yoke her into their fake “Russiagate” conspiracy. Stein is “the perfect foil. She can simultaneously be blamed for Clinton’s loss while feeding the anti-Russia frenzy.” ... Democrats hate the left more than they hate the right. Democrats are allegedly the counter weight to the right wing in America when in reality their goal is to replicate the same policies... Visit Website ]

THE PERFECT RACE!
Mohawk Nation News: MNN. JULY 23, 2017. America was never great. The invaders came from the streets of Europe, slavery, prisons, orphanages, prostitution, children to work on farms, to populate the colonies. Incest was a program to increase their population. ... The oligarchs conditions them into gullible slaves through their educational institution. ...

Kamala Harris and America’s Oligarchs
Margaret Kimberley, BAR: The proof that America is not a democracy is quite obvious. Academic studies and our own common sense tell us that this nation is ruled of, for and by wealthy individuals and corporate interests. One of their most tenaciously held prerequisites is the ability to decide who does and doesn’t run for office, and the presidency is their most prized possession of all. ... According to recent press reports, California’s newly elected senator Kamala Harris has begun her turn on the rich people’s casting couch. ... Harris is a natural, the total package as it were. She is a new face, young, photogenic and like Barack Obama, bi-racial. ... “No one will be allowed near the nomination who doesn’t toe the corporatist line.”... Visit Website ]

25% of Australian Homes have gone Solar and other Green Triumphs this Week
Juan Cole: Because of less expensive and more efficient technology, about one quarter of all Australian households now have solar panels. This process is uneven, with a rush to put them up recently because of a fall in the price of the panels. ... Case Western Reserve University scientists have found a way to boost panel output by 10%, and the breakthrough is now being tested for durability. ...

Leave North Korea Alone
Margaret Kimberley: U.S. presidents treat other nations like Dred Scott – as having no rights that the United States is bound to respect. North Korea is called “rogue” – the U.S. term for a country that “dares to exist on its own terms.” The dignity of peoples is foreign to Washington’s rulers, who cannot conceive that it is better to engage with an adversary “than to demonize it on a regular basis.” ... Scare mongering is a tool to get public approval for more war. It is the United States that increases the risk of nuclear conflagration more than all of the “rogue” nations put together...

Peace Not an Option for Washington
Stephen Lendman: Endless wars are waged against one country after another, sovereign independent ones – either directly, through proxies or both ways like now against multiple countries. ... As long as it’s (Russia) free from US control, it’s considered an implacable enemy. Neocons infesting Washington call it the nation’s leading threat – for its sovereign independence, opposition to imperial wars, and ability to challenge America’s rage for world dominance, no other reasons. ...False flags are a longstanding US tradition since the 19th century – 9/11 the mother of them all. ...

America’s Embarrassment
Margaret Kimberley, BAR: Much of America is embarrassed by Donald Trump’s boorish ways -- as if bad manners and geopolitical ignorance are the worst faults a president can have.

Record: Germany at 35% Renewables in Electricity Production
Juan Cole: So far this year, over a third of German electricity has come from wind, solar, biomass and hydro, at 35%. That is 2 percentage points higher than in 2016. ... The percentage for the US is only 15%. ... But I predict that Germany will get to 100% renewables well before 2050. ... EV and Plug-in Hybrid sales are up 48% year over year in the European market, and up 27% since Jan. 1. They still form a small percentage of over-all sales in Europe, unlike in Norway. ...

A Vicious Cycle of Poison and Poverty
Lois Gibbs: We in the wealthiest country in the world should feel ashamed. America takes our most vulnerable families – poor or working poor – and houses them next to polluting industries, poisons their children and now wants to take away their access to health care. ... This vicious cycle of poison and poverty leads young men and women to end up up sick, dead or in prisons. ...
