Nation That Says It Can’t Afford Medicare for All Has Spent $5.6 Trillion on War Since 9/11

The Costs of War Project at Brown University’s Watson Center says the $5.6 trillion figure—which covers the conflicts in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, and Pakistan from 2001 through 2018—is the equivalent of more than $23,386 per taxpayer.

House Passes Amendments to End War Authorizations, Preemptively Defund Iran War

Bill supporters argued that Iran is just too big of a war to get sucked into without Congress having any say in the matter, while opponents insisted that Congress is so slow in approving wars we’d never get an attack on Iran off the ground without a president doing it unilaterally. #nowarwithiran

Marianne Williamson Campaign Sends Fundraising Email For Rival 2020 Candidate Mike Gravel: ‘His Voice is Important’

“During his time in Senate, he garnered wide respect for his unabashed opposition to the Vietnam War and for reading the Pentagon Papers into the Congressional Record, risking expulsion from the Senate.

Democracy thrives when brave men like Mike Gravel risk their careers to do what’s just and right,” said #MarianneWilliamson, before asking her supporters and anyone else receiving emails from her campaign to “please send him to the July debate stage by donating $1 to the Mike Gravel campaign.”

War is a Racket & Not What It Seems To The Majority of People: Major General Smedley Butler

The idea that the latest gas attack in Syria was fabricated by the western military alliance in order to justify intervention in that country clearly outlines how ‘fake’ things are. These fake terrorist attacks, both home and abroad, are not only used to justify military action, but also to take away our rights here at home and justify surveillance and a heightened national security state. This article is not going to go into the Syria attacks, but I put more information in a recent article titled “BBC Producer Blows The Whistle & Admits The “Gas Attack” Footage From Syria “Was Staged.”

History’s Dire Warning: Beware False Flag Trigger for Long-Sought War with Iran
