On occasion a reader will ask if I can give readers some good news. The answer is: not unless I lie to you like “your” government and the mainstream media do. If you want faked “good news,” you need to retreat into The Matrix. In exchange for less stress and worry, you will be led unknowingly into financial ruin and nuclear armageddon.
If you want to be forewarned, and possibly prepared, for what “your” government is bringing you, and have some small chance of redirecting the course of events, read and support this site. It is your site. I already know these things. I write for you.
The neoconservatives, a small group of warmongers strongly allied with the military/industrial complex and Israel, gave us Granada and the Contras affair in Nicaragua. President Reagan fired them, and they were prosecuted, but subsequently pardoned by Reagan’s successor, George H.W. Bush.
Ensconced in think tanks and protected by Israeli and military/security complex money, the neoconservatives reemerged in the Clinton administration and engineered the breakup of Yugoslavia, the war against Serbia, and the expansion of NATO to Russia’s borders.
Neoconservatives dominated the George W. Bush regime. They controlled the Pentagon, the National Security Council, the Office of the Vice President, and much else. Neoconservatives gave us 9/11 and its coverup, the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, the beginning of the destabilizations of Pakistan and Yemen, the U.S. Africa Command, the invasion of South Ossetia by Georgia, the demise of the anti-ABM Treaty, unconstitutional and illegal spying on American citizens without warrants, loss of constitutional protections, torture, and the unaccountability of the executive branch to law, Congress, and the judiciary. In short, the neoconservatives laid the foundation for dictatorship and for WW III.
The Obama regime held no one accountable for the crimes of the Bush regime, thus creating the precedent that the executive branch is above the law. Instead, the Obama regime prosecuted whistleblowers who told the truth about government crimes.
Neoconservatives remain very influential in the Obama regime. As examples, Obama appointed neoconservative Susan Rice as his National Security Advisor. Obama appointed neoconservative Samantha Power as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Obama appointed neoconservative Victoria Nuland as Assistant Secretary of State. Nuland’s office, working with the CIA and Washington-financed NGOs, organized the U.S. coup in Ukraine.
Neoconservatism is the only extant political ideology. The ideology is “America uber alles.” Neoconservatives believe that History has chosen the United States to exercise hegemony over the world, thereby making the U.S. “exceptional” and “indispensable.” Obama himself has declared as much. This ideology gives neoconservatives tremendous confidence and drive, just as Karl Marx’s conclusion that history had chosen the workers to be the ruling class gave early communists confidence and drive.
This confidence and drive makes the neoconservatives reckless.
To advance their agenda neoconservatives propagandize the populations of the U.S. and Washington’s vassal states. The presstitutes deliver the neoconservatives’ lies to the unsuspecting public: Russia has invaded and annexed Ukrainian provinces; Putin intends to reconstitute the Soviet Empire; Russia is a gangster state without democracy; Russia is a threat to the Baltics, Poland, and all of Europe, necessitating a U.S./NATO military buildup on Russia’s borders; China, a Russian ally, must be militarily contained with new U.S. naval and air bases surrounding China and controlling Chinese sea lanes.
The neoconservatives and President Obama have made it completely clear that the U.S. will not accept Russia and China as sovereign countries with economic and foreign policies independent of the interests of Washington. Russia and China are acceptable only as vassal states, like the UK, Europe, Japan, Canada, and Australia.
Clearly, the neoconservative formula is a formula for the final war.
All of humanity is endangered by a handful of evil men and women ensconced in positions of power in Washington.
Anti-Russia propaganda has gone into high gear. Putin is the “new Hitler.”
Daniel Zubov reports on a joint conference held by three U.S. think tanks.
The conference blamed Russia for the failures of Washington’s foreign policy. Read this article:http://sputniknews.com/columnists/20141205/1015538604.html to see how neoconservatives operate in order to control the explanations. Even Henry Kissinger is under attack for stating the obvious truth that Russia has a legitimate interest in Ukraine, a land long part of Russia and located in Russia’s legitimate sphere of influence.
Since the Clinton regime, Washington has been acting against Russian interests. In his forthcoming book, The Globalization of War: America’s Long War against Humanity, Professor Michel Chossudovsky presents a realistic appraisal of how close Washington has brought the world to its demise in nuclear war. This passage is from the Preface:
“The ‘globalization of war’ is a hegemonic project. Major military
and covert intelligence operations are being undertaken
simultaneously in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan
Africa, Central Asia and the Far East. The US military agenda
combines both major theater operations as well as covert actions
geared towards destabilizing sovereign states.
“Under a global military agenda, the actions undertaken by the
Western military alliance (US-NATO-Israel) in Afghanistan, Pakistan,
Palestine, Ukraine, Syria and Iraq are coordinated at the highest
levels of the military hierarchy. We are not dealing with
piecemeal military and intelligence operations. The July-August
2014 attack on Gaza by Israeli forces was undertaken in close consultation
with the United States and NATO. In turn, the actions in
Ukraine and their timing coincided with the onslaught of the attack
“In turn, military undertakings are closely coordinated with a
process of economic warfare which consists not only in imposing
sanctions on sovereign countries but also in deliberate acts of destabilization
of financial and currency markets, with a view to undermining
the enemies’ national economies.
“The United States and its allies have launched a military adventure
which threatens the future of humanity. As we go to press, US
and NATO forces have been deployed in Eastern Europe. US military
intervention under a humanitarian mandate is proceeding in sub-Saharan
Africa. The US and its allies are threatening China under President Obama’s
‘Pivot to Asia’.
“In turn, military maneuvers are being conducted at Russia’s
doorstep which could lead to escalation.
“The US airstrikes initiated in September 2014 directed against
Iraq and Syria under the pretext of going after the Islamic State are
part of a scenario of military escalation extending from North Africa
and the Eastern Mediterranean to Central and South Asia.
The Western military alliance is in an advanced state of readiness.
“And so is Russia.”
As I have often remarked, Americans are an insouciant people. They are simply unaware. Suppose they were aware, suppose that the entire population understood the peril, could anything be done, or have the insouciant Americans fallen under the control of the police state that Washington has created?
I don’t think there is much hope from the American people. The American people cannot tell genuine from fake leadership, and the ruling private elites will not permit real leaders to emerge. Moreover, there is no organized movement in opposition to the neoconservatives.
The hope comes from outside the political system. The hope is that the House of Cards and rigged markets erected by policymakers for the benefit of the One Percent collapses. David Stockman regards this outcome as a highly likely one. The collapse that Stockman sees as being on its way is the same collapse about which I have warned. Moreover, the number of Black Swans which can originate collapse are even more numerous than the ones Stockman correctly identifies. Some financial organizations are worried about a lack of liquidity in the fixed income (bonds) and derivatives markets. Barbara Novack, co-chair of Black Rock, is lobbying hard for a derivatives bailout mechanism.
David Stockman’s article is important. Read it until you understand it, and you will know more than most everyone. http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/12/david-stockman/duck-and-cover%E2%80%A8/
Many will ask: If the wealth of the One Percent is vulnerable to economic collapse, will war be initiated to protect this wealth and to blame the Russians or Chinese for the hardships that engulf the American population? My answer is that the kind of collapse that I expect, and that David Stockman and no doubt others expect, presents government with such social, political, and economic insecurity that organizing for a major war becomes impossible.
Whereas the political impotence of the American people and the vassalage of the Western World impose no constraints on Washington, economic collapse brings revolutions and the demise of the existing order.
As hard as collapse would make it for people to survive, the chances for survival are higher than in the event of nuclear war.

B)Senate Passes $1.1 Trillion Spending Bill, 56-40
WASHINGTON—In a rare weekend session triggered by a conservative revolt against President Barack Obama ’s executive action on immigration, the Senate on Saturday night passed a $1.1 trillion government spending bill, sending it to the president for his signature and ending the final budget fight of a Congress riven by them.
Two days after intraparty divisions in the House threatened to derail the measure, a divided Senate narrowly passed the funding bill on a 56-40 vote. It was supported by 31 Democrats, one Independent and 24 Republicans. It was opposed by 21 Democrats, one Independent and 18 Republicans. Passage came after senators reached a deal to end an impasse, and then cleared a pair of procedural hurdles that could have killed the bill’s passage.
The fight over the spending bill was a fitting finale for a two-year congressional session that began shortly after resolving the so-called fiscal cliff of January 2013 only to devolve into an impasse that led to the first government shutdown in 17 years last October. A bipartisan budget deal reached late last year eased some of the partisan gridlock, but it will expire at the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30.
The catalyst for the 10-hour Saturday session was a decision by conservatives led by Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah to object to the bill on Friday night over the issue of immigration. Their move did little to stop the funding measure, but it had the effect of bringing senators who thought they had the weekend off back to the Capitol.
What followed was a marathon grind of procedural votes as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.), frustrated that the conservatives had tied the Senate in knots, used the time to advance two dozen nominees that Democrats hope to confirm before they lose control of the Senate next year. The end of the session came in focus only after conservatives yielded, agreeing to a deal that speeded up a spending-bill vote and gave Democrats the chance to set up votes on the roughly 24 nominees, such as Mr. Obama’s pick for U.S. surgeon general, Vivek Murthy, who Republicans oppose.
As a procedural tactic, the conservatives’ move appeared to have backfired, in fact accelerating the vote on the spending bill they oppose and giving Democrats the chance to confirm more nominees than Republicans likely would have agreed to outside a weekend session.
“Most Republicans feel like Christmas came early for Democrats,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) “At the end of the day, they got nominees” scheduled for votes “and we got nothing.”
But the conservative lawmakers succeeded in drawing attention to their immigration stance. Mr. Cruz’s action, a point-of-order motion, could have killed the spending bill; Mr. Cruz said his motion was a referendum on the constitutionality of Mr. Obama’s executive action shielding millions of illegal immigrants from deportation. It was defeated 22-74.
“If you believe President Obama’s amnesty is unconstitutional, vote yes,” Mr. Cruz said on the Senate floor Saturday night.
Many of his Republican colleagues voted no—including incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.)—and in part reflected what aides said were objections to Mr. Cruz’s strategy. It was the latest sign of tension within the party and foreshadowed legislative battles over the next two years.
More broadly, some Republicans said that the conservatives’ strategy may have set back their cause.
“I fail to see what conservative ends were achieved” by the weekend session, Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) said on Saturday. “For some of the nominations, particularly the surgeon general and others…now they move forward.”
Other Republicans said the gambit brought the GOP no closer to blocking Mr. Obama’s immigration plans. “You should have an end goal in sight if you’re going to do these kinds of things,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch (R., Utah). “I don’t see any end goal that can be won other than just irritating a lot of people.”
Mr. Cruz’s spokeswoman, Catherine Frazier, said Mr. Reid could have begun work on the nominations at any time. “Sen. Cruz is fighting to have a vote on defunding the president’s amnesty, which has nothing to do with Sen. Reid’s decision to bring up votes on nominations,” Ms. Frazier said.
The path to passage of the spending bill was fraught in both chambers, with the narrow victory in the Senate showing the same dynamics that nearly derailed the bill in the House. Conservatives, under pressure from the Senate Conservatives Fund, which encouraged voters to flood lawmakers with angry calls, were up in arms that the bill didn’t include efforts to block Mr. Obama’s plan to shield millions of illegal immigrants from deportation. Lawmakers on both sides, especially liberals, objected to one provision paring back part of the 2010 Dodd-Frank overhaul, and another increasing the amount that donors may give to political parties.
“This just isn’t the way to govern,” said Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.), who voted no on the spending bill even though it would keep open a Boeing Co. factory in St. Louis by including money for military aircraft. While “this bill includes important provisions for causes I support,” she said, “now is not the time to further open the floodgates of big money in our elections with a secretive, last-minute provision that got little or no public debate.”
Liberal Democrats, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), also voted no because of objections to the Dodd-Frank provision, which would loosen a requirement that banks “push out” some of their riskiest derivatives-trading activities into affiliates ineligible for federal backstop programs such as deposit insurance. Banks argue the requirement actually increases risk by pushing swaps activity into less-regulated entities.
The intraparty tensions were evident on the Republican side as well, especially over immigration policy, and offered a preview of the sorts of clashes that are sure to beset the Senate next year, when Republicans are in charge.
To address conservatives’ immigration concerns, congressional leaders had shaped the spending plan so that it funds most of the government through September 2015, but funds the Homeland Security Department, which oversees immigration programs, only through February. That way, they could target Mr. Obama’s plan next year when the GOP controls all of Congress. Conservatives such as Mr. Cruz don’t want to wait; his Saturday maneuver was aimed at blocking funding for the immigration plan in the spending bill immediately.
After quoting pledges by Mr. McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) to vigorously challenge Mr. Obama’s immigration executive action next year, Mr. Cruz on Friday expressed skepticism over leaders’ plans.
“I take them at their word because the alternative would be that elected leaders were saying something to the American people they don’t believe and they don’t intend to follow through on. And I very much hope that is not the case,” Mr. Cruz said. “We will learn in just a few weeks if leadership intends to follow through on promises they have made over and over again.”

C)Senate sends spending bill to Obama, avoiding government shutdown
Washington (CNN) -- The Senate approved a $1.1 trillion spending measure Saturday night funding most of the government through September, removing the threat of a shutdown for much of 2015.
The bipartisan 56-40 vote sends the bill to President Barack Obama, who is expected to sign it into law.
Passage closes a chapter of yet another fiscal battle on Capitol Hill. It came after attempts to delay the legislation by liberals who sought to strip out a policy provision that eases a Wall Street regulation and conservatives who tried to slow action on immigration.
In fact, the Senate would not have been in session this weekend if it hadn't been for a small band of conservatives who sabotaged an agreement by Democratic Leader Harry Reid and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, who wanted to vote on the bill Monday.
In a late Friday night procedural sneak attack, carried out after McConnell left the Capitol, the group led by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, forced the Senate to stay. They also pressed to get a vote on a measure to declare the bill unconstitutional because it funds what they say is "illegal amnesty" included in the President's recent executive orders on immigration.
READ: The death of horse-trading on the Hill
The move by rank-and-file members to undermine an agreement between the Senate leaders is highly unusual and may reflect the difficulty incoming majority leader McConnell will face managing the Senate when the new Congress convenes next month.
Cruz defended his actions.
"Every Republican candidate all across the country said we'll do everything humanly possible to stop President Obama's illegal amnesty. We're honoring those commitments," Cruz said as he shuttled between strategy sessions in the Capitol with his cohorts Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana, and Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama.
"They're going to get nothing out of this," said Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, who, like a lot of senators, was frustrated by Cruz's tactics and predicted he would not succeed in scuttling the bill. "This is absolute utter nonsense for us to be here."
Cruz ultimately did receive a vote challenging the funding bill because it included money for the Department of Homeland Security, which is carrying out the President's recent executive actions on immigration. Cruz and other Republicans say the President's orders are unconstitutional.
Though his challenge failed, the senator wanted a vote to "ensure that every senator will be on record regarding the constitutionality of President Obama's illegal amnesty," Catherine Frazier, Cruz's press secretary, emailed reporters early Saturday ahead of the vote.
READ: Surprises hidden in the spending bill
Democrats took advantage of the Saturday session to begin procedure votes on 24 nominations, including some controversial ones like Sarah Saldaña for director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Vivek Murthy for surgeon general, and Carolyn Colvin for commissioner of the Social Security Administration.
A senior Democratic leadership aide said some of the nominees would most likely have not received a vote because of timing and senators leaving for the holidays.
"We gave away literally nothing, and we got a number of nominees we would not have been able to confirm if we hadn't been in session today," the aide said.
Before the unusual weekend session, much of the drama over the spending bill was in the House, where Republican Speaker John Boehner and Obama formed an unusual alliance to quell their own parties' rebellions -- led on the left by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D- Massachusetts.
All the maneuvering was an ominous sign of what's to come now that this Congress is wrapping up its work and a new one is set to start in January. Boehner and soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader McConnell are still struggling to rein in tea party conservatives who are itching for more showdowns over Obama's immigration policies, the health care law, the debt ceiling and more.
And Democrats who had been loyal to Obama now find they no longer need the President, especially since many of the party's more centrist members lost their seats in a midterm election that saw Republicans gain control of the Senate and expand their advantage in the House.
"This by definition was a compromise bill. This is what is produced when you have a divided government that the American people voted for," Obama told reporters Friday. "Had I been able to draft my own legislation, get it passed without any Republican votes, I suspect it would be slightly different," he said.
"That is not the circumstance we find ourselves in and I think what the American people very much are looking for is responsible governance and the willingness to compromise, and that's what we've clearly done," Obama added.
Beyond keeping the government open, the spending bill includes dozens of far-reaching policy provisions. It blocks a voter-approved law in the District of Columbia, that legalizes marijuana and blunts a school lunch program championed by first lady Michelle Obama.
