‘Very, Very Disturbing’: Trump Asserts ‘Absolute Right’ to Pardon Himself

Echoing the tyrannical claim of his lawyer Rudy Giuliani in a Twitter outburst on Monday, President Donald Trump asserted that he has the “absolute right” to pardon himself—a statement legal experts said is both factually inaccurate and dangerous. Responding to the president’s tweet, former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti wrote, “You don’t need to be a lawyer to understand why courts would never uphold a president’s power to commit crimes and then pardon himself for them.”

UN Report Condemns US for ‘Deliberately’ Creating Devastating Wealth Inequality

With millions of Americans already on the brink of deep poverty, Philip Alston, U.N. Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights and author of the new report, warned that Trump’s tax law, deregulatory agenda, and welfare cuts are driving the poor closer to complete “ruination,” which the U.N. official defines as “severe deprivation of food and almost no access to healthcare.”

Experts Put Blame for Canceled North Korea Talks Squarely on Trump’s Top Warmonger John Bolton

While Trump insisted that “open hostility” from Pyongyang in recent days was what ultimately led him to call off the summit, Korea experts were quick to point out that White House officials’ repeated references to the so-called “Libya model” provoked angry responses from North Korean officials, who have warned constantly over the past several weeks that it views such comments as explicit regime change threats.

Iraq 2.0: New US Secretary of State Setting the Stage for Regime Change in Iran –  Threatens to ‘Crush’ Iran

After Pompeo’s unveiled “Plan B” for nuclear negotiations—which comes around two weeks after President Donald Trump violated the Iran nuclear accord and placed the U.S. on the path to yet another war in the Middle East—National Iranian American Council (NIAC) president Trita Parsi argued that the Trump administration’s demands are intentionally unrealistic and “clearly designed to ensure there cannot be any new negotiation.”

Sanders Rips Bolton and Other Washington Hawks Who Push ‘War and Militarism’ as ‘Answer to Everything’

“This is a man who was a key adviser to President Bush, George W. Bush, in urging him to…invade Iraq because supposedly Iraq had weapons of mass destruction,” Sanders said of Bolton, who Trump selected to be his top foreign policy adviser in March. “As I think most Americans now know, that effort in Iraq was the worst foreign policy disaster in the modern history of this country.” (Plus, the death and devastation it caused in Iraq).

The Real Reason Trump Abandoned the Iran Nuclear Deal

The Real Reason Trump Abandoned the Iran Nuclear Deal

The blunt truth about the Iran deal is that Donald Trump rejects it because it has been working. His own administration has been forced to consistently certify Iran as compliant with the terms. The strategy appears to be to devise a deal so impossible for Iran to accept that Iran will, in the eyes of the international community, become the dangerous and untrustworthy party in major need of a military intervention.

Trump’s Reckless Decision Puts US on Path to War with Iran

Trump’s Reckless Decision Puts US on Path to War with Iran

Donald Trump has committed what will go down as one of the greatest acts of self-sabotage in America’s modern history. He has put the United States on a path towards war with Iran and may trigger a wider regional war and nuclear arms race. This is not America first, this is Trump leasing out America’s foreign policy interests to the highest bidder. The only parties applauding this move are Benjamin Netanyahu and Mohammed Bin Salman, who have consistently chosen to undermine regional security to advance their own short-sighted political fortunes. Trump’s reckless decision is a betrayal of the national interests of the United States of America that could haunt us for generations.

7 Questions About the Syria Airstrikes That Aren’t Being Asked by Corporate Media

The media’s job, we are told, is to ask skeptical questions about the people in power. That didn’t happen in the runup to the invasion of Iraq, and it’s not happening now. Here are the questions that should be asked – not just on the eve of a bombing attack, but every day we continue our disastrous and drifting military intervention in the Middle East.

Showing They ‘Learned Nothing’ From Iraq, Corporate Media Help Beat War Drums for Trump Attack on Syria

As media critic Simon Maloy lamented, the behavior of much of the corporate media “indicates how alarmingly comfortable much of the mainstream press is with the idea that the president can just up and decide to initiate military hostilities whenever, wherever, and for whatever reason—even when there is no actual reason at all.”

Why There Will NEVER Be A Political Solution To America’s Problems

Why There Will NEVER Be A Political Solution To America’s Problems

The truth is that the real problem lies in our hearts, and the corrupt politicians that currently represent us are simply a reflection of who we have become as a nation. The generations of people that founded this nation and established it as the greatest republic that the world had ever seen had far different values than most Americans do today. So until there is a dramatic shift in how most of us see the world, it is quite likely that not much in Washington will change.
