Despite what you may hear in the mainstream media, poll after poll demonstrate clearly that the American people have very little interest in being involved in Israel’s war on Gaza. The latest poll, released this week, shows that a majority of ALL American voters want a permanent ceasefire. Meanwhile, US Congress keeps stoking the flames of war and the President keeps delivering weapons. Also today…even Germany’s Die Welt admits that Ukraine war likely lost.

The White House is becoming desperate to continue funding for its “Plan Ukraine,” claiming that the money will run out in just three weeks’ time. Zelensky himself has been summoned by Senate Majority Leader Schumer to make the case for more funding in a behind-the-doors classified briefing to Senators. Republicans are trying to tie funding to US border security. Aldo today: The Pentagon can’t account for 61 percent of four trillion in assets. By design?
Speaking at the Reagan Library over the weekend, US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin (a former executive in the military-industrial complex) blamed chaos, bloodshed, and terrorism worldwide on Americans who oppose the US global military empire. Non-interventionists are the real enemy, said Austin. Also today: Shipping woes in the Middle East may lead to war explosion. Finally: They lost the J6 deposition tapes? Incompetence or something more sinister?
As the US House is scheduled for a third – and likely successful – vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-NY), the Congressman held an extraordinary press conference where he took no prisoners calling out the liars den on Capitol Hill. There are little lies…and there are the big lies. Also today: Man or monster? Kissinger dead at 100. Finally: Sen. Paul to force vote on Syria withdrawal.
With a majority of Americans opposing further US involvement in the Israel/Gaza conflict, President Biden is finding that within his own Democratic Party support for his approach is even softer. Younger voters are solidly opposed to further US support for Israel’s continued assault on Gaza. That is why while Biden’s initial reaction tracked more closely with his neocon views, he is furiously backpedaling under pressure from his own party. Also today: Rep. Massie is the lone “no” vote on another anti-free speech House Resolution.
Throughout history, authoritarians have been playing a futile game of whack-a-mole against the truth. Since authoritarians gain and maintain their power by propaganda and lies, it follows that free speech and the truth are their great enemy. No matter what “systems” the authoritarians try to erect to stop people from speaking freely, the truth always prevails. It ends up being spoken from the most unplanned, unexpected, and unpredictable places. Nevertheless, we must forever remain vigilant and defend our ability to speak freely.
“Get off yer butt!” US Senator Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) challenged Teamster President Sean O’Brien to a fight during a Senate Committee Hearing. Idiocracy? Or a novel way to pay down the debt: pay-per-view Senate brawl hearings! Also today, Nikki Haley demands that you show her your papers! Finally, the fascism of corporate/government collusion on censorship continues.
All of a sudden the Republican Party has returned to its 2002, neocon-dominated warmongering. The pseudo-debate last night signaled the return of the neocons and their disastrous warfare-welfare philosophy. Also today: Biden faces internal revolt over his Gaza policy as US troops hit harder and harder in Syria. Watch today’s Liberty Report:
Former President Donald Trump is expected to testify today in the New York civil case revolving around the alleged elevated valuation of his business empire. While the lawfare against Trump increases…so do his poll numbers! Also today: Blinken in Baghdad…he wasn’t greeted as a liberator. Watch today’s Liberty Report:
After Israel’s bombing of a Gaza refugee camp this week killed scores of civilians, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told CNN that there should be “no limit” on the number of civilians Israel can kill. In a previous interview he urged Israel to turn Gaza into post-WWII Berlin. Also today, US House passes resolution authorizing attacks on Iran. Today on the Liberty Report:
A new article in The Guardian details the enthusiasm among the masters of Wall Street for the wars in Gaza (and Ukraine), issuing “buy” orders all around for US weapons manufacturer stocks. Meanwhile, Gaza’s largest refugee camp was blown to pieces yesterday. The Biden Administration is now considering sending US troops as “peacekeepers” once the smoke clears. Good idea?

What a difference a year makes. Less than a year ago Time Magazine named Ukrainian president Zelensky its “person of year” and raised his status practically to a saint. This week’s Time cover could not be more of a contrast. Have the elites finally thrown “Project Ukraine” and Zelensky under the bus now that a new shiny object – a Middle East war – has come around?
