The sordid story of Harvey Weinstein is being presented as an aberration. It is not an aberration; it is merely a high-profile example of how the status quo functions in the USA, a.k.a. The United States of Weinstein, in which complicity, greed and corruption reign supreme in every sector and in every nook and cranny of power. The dirty secret of America’s status quo is that power and wealth are both extremely concentrated, which means there are gatekeepers who must be bribed, sated or serviced if you want to claw your way up the wealth-power pyramid.

Congress needs to learn how the FBI meddled in the 2016 campaign.When Donald Trump claimed in March that he’d had his “wires tapped” prior to the election, the press and Obama officials dismissed the accusation as a fantasy. We were among the skeptics, but with former director James Comey’s politicized FBI the story is getting more complicated.

The sound of the shofar at Rosh Hashanah in the synagogue is a "wake-up call" to Jews to support the "Jewish homeland" Israel, and fight the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, says David Harris, of the American Jewish Committee, completely conflating religion and Zionism in a way that fosters anti-Zionism.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. This is obviously quite pathetic for someone of Hillary Clinton’s stature. She is a former first lady, for goodness sake. She has lived in the White House and held two national presidential campaigns, as well as held the office of Secretary of State – yet, these days, she’s relegated to the toilet paper aisle at Costco to try to hock books.

The media is less interested in Obama Administration wiretapping than in how Trump described it... This week CNN is reporting more details on the Obama Administration’s 2016 surveillance of people connected to the presidential campaign of the party out of power. It seems that once President Obama’s appointee to run the FBI, James Comey, had secured authorization for wiretapping, the bureau continued its surveillance into 2017.

The bill in Congress to fund US intelligence services includes a provision, Sec. 623, which states:
SEC. 623. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON WIKILEAKS.
It is the sense of Congress that WikiLeaks and the senior leadership of WikiLeaks resemble a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such a service by the United States.
In other words: if this bill passes, Wikileaks will be categorized by US Intelligence in the same way as will the intelligence services of Russia, Iran, Syria, North Korea, and other countries

Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet – mostly know-nothings about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most. A new Gallup poll provides more evidence – 58% of respondents supporting war if peaceful methods with North Korea fail.

Matthews widmet sich der Auseinandersetzung zwischen den USA und Russland und verrät, dass er die Straßen Moskaus dank Google Maps beschreiben kann.

The harsh rhetoric from Washington and Pyongyang during recent months has exacerbated an already confrontational relationship between our countries, and has probably eliminated any chance of good faith peace talks between the United States and North Korea.
