Our Gods Have No Heads
Caitlin Johnstone: We’re on a planet-sized haunted hayride to Armageddon, and no one is driving. ... The official elected governments are controlled by corporate and financial plutocratic institutions which have no loyalty to the citizenry of any nation they dominate ... What’s ultimately driving things is not so much the people within those institutions as the institutions themselves, which operate based on motives of profit and growth that are built into them and are entirely divorced from normal human values. ... At some point we’re going to realize that market forces and the profit motive do not have the wisdom to navigate through the existential crises humanity now faces... Visit Website ]

20 Years of Post-9/11 Amnesia
Margaret Kimberley: Memories of the last 20 years are rarely focused on increased state violence and repression in the post-9/11 world. The damage has largely been forgotten. ... The 9/11 event isn’t forgotten, but the near universal approval of the attack on Afghanistan is rarely mentioned now. The corrosive impact of that war on international and domestic law is also swept under the rug. In the past 20 years presidents have claimed the right to kill anyone they claim is a threat, deny the right to civilian trials, and gather and keep electronic information on everyone in the United States. ... These assaults on human rights have been largely forgotten, as the shock of the day turned otherwise intelligent people into supporters of aggression... Visit Website ]

Manufacturing Dystopia: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: We live in a world of manufactured lack, manufactured enemies, manufactured crises and manufactured consent. We’ve had sufficient resources to care for everyone for generations. All our wars are based on lies. All our problems are cooked up by a few psychos with too much power. ... If there were good billionaires they wouldn’t still be billionaires. ... If the US empire ran out of excuses to use and test its extremely profitable military arsenal on impoverished foreigners, it would simply invent more excuses... Visit Website ]

Twenty Years Of Phony Tears About 9/11
Caitlin Johnstone: This nation which has spent twenty years weeping about its victimization with Bambi-eyed innocence reacted to 9/11 with wars which killed millions and displaced tens of millions and ushered in an unprecedented new era of military expansionism ... Without being told so by solemn-looking pundits and politicians, it never would have occurred to ordinary people that the sane response to an attack by Al Qaeda was to invade and occupy Afghanistan, much less Iraq. ... The US had already been strategizing to oust the Taliban before 9/11. Donald Rumsfeld was pushing for the Iraq invasion within hours of the planes striking. Further wars were planned within days ... The official 9/11 narrative itself was riddled with gaping plot holes... Visit Website ]

Democrats, Abortion and Phony Politics
Margaret Kimberley: Democratic party leadership are as uninterested in fighting for abortion rights as they are in addressing anything else their members need and want. ... the Democrats lie about their ability to protect abortion rights ... They could pass the Women’s Health Protection Act which would make Roe v. Wade federal law and do away with all abortion restrictions across the country. ... They could have done this when Bill Clinton and Barack Obama had democratic control of both houses of congress and they can still do it now. ...

Why the U.S. Still Suffers from Covid
Margaret Kimberley: The Covid-19 crisis cannot be separated from the failed state. ... Austerity, low wage work, housing insecurity, and the profit driven health care system were problematic issues before anyone heard the word Covid-19 or indeed before Trump’s presidency. ... Every failing of the United States already in existence came into sharp relief when the pandemic struck. ... The words “trust the science” ring hollow when information changes daily. ... Covid-19 does not have to be a never ending crisis. It can be managed but only by establishing people centered solutions to every problem in the country... Visit Website ]

Gentrification and the End of Black Communities
Margaret Kimberley: Brooklyn, New York is the epicenter of gentrification, the displacement of Black people from cities in this country. ... What is now called gentrification is the latest salvo in a long history of making the Black population disposable and dependent upon the whims of racist reaction and capitalism. Urban renewal, known as Nego removal, destroyed entire communities. ... Financial institutions used red lining to determine where a mortgage could be obtained. Often these rules were used to keep any Black person out, regardless of financial circumstances. ... Capitalism and racism make one gigantic, two-headed monster... Visit Website ]

The System Is Rigged For Endless War: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: As long as war is profitable, you guarantee that more wars will happen. As long as ecocide is profitable, more ecocide will happen. As long as corruption is profitable, more corruption will happen. ... Meanwhile, peace is not profitable. ... Demilitarization is not profitable. ... Nuclear disarmament is not profitable. ... Getting plastic out of the oceans is not profitable. ... Leaving trees standing is not profitable. ... Leaving oil in the ground is not profitable. ... Freedom is not profitable... The religion of profit drives all human behavior. And it’s a death cult that will end us all if we don’t end it first... Visit Website ]

Afghanistan
Margaret Kimberley: Afghanistan has been at the mercy of U.S. interventions for more than 40 years. ... U.S. involvement in Afghanistan began in the 1970s when Jimmy Carter was president. ... Defense contractors made billions of dollars. An entire generation accepts that this country has the right to invade and occupy at will. The damage done to this country’s politics and to the anti-war movement has been enormous. ... The U.S. presence in Afghanistan should not be dismissed as merely a mistake and no one should be sorry that it is winding down. It was the ultimate act of cynicism, a war crime, and no one should try to defend it... Visit Website ]

You Need To Understand That The US Is The Most Tyrannical Regime On Earth
Caitlin Johnstone: The United States is currently circling the planet with hundreds of military bases and waging wars which have killed millions and displaced tens of millions just since the turn of this century. Its sanctions and blockades are starving people to death en masse every single day. ... It works to destroy any nation which disobeys its dictates by toppling their governments via CIA coups, proxy armies, partial and full-scale invasions, and the most egregious number of election interferences in the entire world. ... You can argue that other governments have perpetrated comparable evils in the past, but you cannot argue that any of them are doing so currently... Visit Website ]

Citing Corrupt Think Tanks For News Reports Is Blatant Propaganda
Caitlin Johnstone: “Think tank” is a good and accurate label, not because a great deal of thought happens in them, but because they’re dedicated to controlling what people think, and because they are artificial enclosures for slimy creatures. ... Their job, generally speaking, is to concoct and market reasons why it would be good and smart to do something evil and stupid. ... The fact that disguising statements by propagandists who are sponsored by governments and war profiteers is journalistic malpractice should be obvious to everyone in the world ... and if media and education systems were doing their jobs instead of indoctrinating society into accepting the status quo, it would be...

Freedom Rider: Standing with the Cuban People
Margaret Kimberley: “The same people who claim concern for the Cuban people are also in favor of continuing their suffering.” ... (Black Lives Matter) BLM released a statement demanding an end to the 60-year long sanctions imposed by the U.S. against the Cuban government and its people. The impetus for their statement came after a well orchestrated psy-op was carried out against the Cuban government. ... It is important to clarify what sanctions are and how they are used against Cuba and 38 other countries around the world. Sanctions do more than prevent U.S. individuals, banks, and businesses from doing business with the target nation. The U.S. also targets any nation that dares to defy its edict. Any country considering breaking a U.S. embargo suffers the same fate as the target... Visit Website ]

“We’ve Got To Fight Disinformation,” Says Empire Made Entirely Of Disinformation
Caitlin Johnstone: If the propaganda engine of the US-centralized empire ceased actively deceiving the public about the world, it would collapse immediately. ... Getting people believing they live in separate, sovereign nations which function independently from one another, instead of member states within a single undeclared empire which moves as one unit on the international stage. ...

Freedom Rider: U.S. Out of Haiti!
Margaret Kimberley: The United States playing any role in Haiti’s future is akin to the fox being left in charge of the henhouse. ... Foreign interventions are at the root of Haiti’s problems. Even philanthropy is suspect. The millions of dollars raised after the 2010 earthquake ended up in the hands of the oligarch class. ... Venezuela’s Petrocaribe project was intended to provide oil to Haiti and other nations at steeply discounted prices. Instead, it was undermined by theft on a massive scale. None of the funds reached the people who desperately needed them. ... If outsiders do nothing else, they must call attention to Haiti’s history and speak the truth about two hundred years of oppression at the hands of more powerful countries... Visit Website ]

Our Rulers Have All The Power And None Of The Responsibility
Caitlin Johnstone: To hear people talk about it, you’d think we all had some say in the way our society is organized ... We’ve never gotten to vote on how corporations behave in our world. ... We never got a vote on the US war machine becoming the worst polluter of any institution on earth ... We never got a vote on whether a tree should be cut down for profit or left standing for the benefit it provides to our ecosystem. ... And the things we do get to vote on don’t count because our dominant political systems are owned by corporate elites .... In our extinction existence of invisible kings and wall-to-wall lies, those with all the wealth and power are completely free of responsibility... Visit Website ]
