Trump Delegates Warmaking to Generals. “A Nuclear War could Start without Trump”

By Stephen Lendman, April 18, 2017

He’s letting hawkish generals make battlefield decisions – overseen by Defense Secretary Mattis, National Security Advisor McMaster and Joint Chiefs chairman Dunford.

“Making America Great Again” by Reducing the World to Ashes?

By Felicity Arbuthnot, April 18, 2017

If the US makes a nuclear attack on North Korea, the megalomaniacal, narcissistic and seemingly frighteningly ill informed Donald Trump – who, in an early telephone call to President Putin was reported as having to put his hand over the mouthpiece and ask someone what the START Treaty (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, 4) was – could trigger the unimaginable.

Who is Behind “Fake News”? Mainstream Media Use Fake Videos and Images

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky, April 17, 2017

  • The mainstream corporate media is desperate.
  • They want to suppress independent and alternative online media, which it categorizes as “fake news”.
  • Readers on social media are warned not to go onto certain sites.

A Government of Morons and War Criminals

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, April 16, 2017

Clinton twice launched military attacks on Serbia, ordering NATO to bomb the former Yugoslavia twice, both in 1995 and in 1999, so that gives Bill two war crimes. George W. Bush invaded Afghanistan and Iraq and attacked provinces of Pakistan and Yemen from the air. That comes to four war crimes for Bush. Obama used NATO to destroy Libya and sent mercenaries to destroy Syria, thereby committing two war crimes. Trump attacked Syria with US forces, thereby becoming a war criminal early in his regime.

Destroying Palestinian Agriculture? Israeli Planes Spray Herbicides Inside Gaza for the Fourth Time This Year

By Natasha Roth, April 17, 2017

Israeli planes sprayed herbicides inside the Gaza Strip for the second day running on Wednesday and the fourth time this year, according to local farmers and Israeli rights NGO Gisha. A video published on Wednesday, allegedly of the crop-dusting, shows a plane flying low and spraying over farmland.

If We’re Gonna Impeach Trump, Let’s Make Sure We’re Clear on A Couple Points.

Thugz n Kisses, Medium

May 17, 2017 | Contrary to what folks on reddit and Twitter seem to think, I have no love for Donny “why the Civil War” Trump nor Vlad Putin’s Russia. I think that Trump asking Comey to drop the Flynn investigation is likely obstruction of justice and probably grounds for impeachment. I doubt very much that two Republican-controlled houses of congress will impeach a Republican President, regardless of how volatile or demented he seems, and Rep Green’s impeachment attempt today will likely yield little more than an “official” statement of such from Paul Ryan, but that’s how it goes.

So, now that we have what seems to be considered indisputable evidence of an impeachable offense, can we finally talk about “The Russian Thing”?Thugz n Kisses: I am a self diagnosed cinephile from Maryland. I'm really into music, too, (especially hip hop right now, GOOD hip hop that is). But my only two real loves are my girlfriend … and the cinema.

Series | Donald Trump, The Carnage Continues: Humiliation of the Word

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Ignorance%20Is%20Strength.jpg

  • As Trump rails against “fake news” while presenting “alternative facts,” blatant lies, and trenchant denials, all opposition becomes the enemy, and all who oppose are branded liars. Language has become trivialized and ideas relevatized; rational dialogue is all but impossible.
  • To deliberately diminish the power of language, as the Trump team does with lies, is to cut into the heart of what it means to be a human being.

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Donald%20Trump%20Caricature.jpg April, 2017 | The late social critic, philosopher, and theologian Jacques Ellul, in his book The Humiliation of the Word, tells us that the word is the essential reality, the word is what separates humans from the animal world. Another of my favorite social critics is the eminent linguist Noam Chomsky, who, unlike Ellul the Christian believer, is an atheist. Both Chomsky the atheist and Ellul the Christian have a profound faith in the word. Both believe that language is what makes us human.

Chomsky believes that there was no extensive evolutionary develop ment of language; it surprisingly did not evolve from our ancestral ape relatives’ use of simple sign language. “The reality,” he says, “is becoming increasingly clear that the uniquely modern (human) sensibilitywas almost certainly crucially abetted by the invention of what is the single most remarkable thing about our modern selves: language” (What Kind of Creatures Are We?).

Series | War and the State: Part 1, War And The Health Of The State: What Causes War

 https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2592/4002198341_5431324717.jpg

  • Strange bedfellows indeed, war and welfare. Yet they seem to have gotten on quite well. It would never occur to us that we owe our welfare benefits to the killing of innocents abroad. Yet that seems to be the case. State does what is expedient when it comes to serving its ultimate cause: war. It cannot be otherwise.

March 24, 2017 | War has indeed become perpetual and peace no longer even a fleeting wish nor a distant memory. We have become habituated to the rumblings of war and the steady drum beat of propaganda about war’s necessity and the noble motives that inspire it. We will close hospitals. We will close schools. We will close libraries and museums. We will sell off our park lands and water supply. [1] People will sleep on the streets and go hungry. The war machine will go on.

What are we to do?

An American Century of Carnage: Measuring Violence in a Single Superpower World, John W. Dower,  TomDispatchTruthout / Rise Up Times

Here, then, is a trend line intimately connected to global violence that is not heading downward. In 1996, the UN’s estimate was that there were 37.3 million forcibly displaced individuals on the planet. Twenty years later, as 2015 ended, this had risen to 65.3 million — a 75% increase over the last two post-Cold War decades that the declinist literature refers to as the “new peace.”

Tuesday, 27 May 2014 | Let us imagine that in 3030BC the total possessions of the people of Egypt filled one cubic metre. Let us propose that these possessions grew by 4.5% a year. How big would that stash have been by the Battle of Actium in 30BC? This is the calculation performed by the investment banker Jeremy Grantham.

Go on, take a guess. Ten times the size of the pyramids? All the sand in the Sahara? The Atlantic ocean? The volume of the planet? A little more? It's 2.5 billion billion solar systems. It does not take you long, pondering this outcome, to reach the paradoxical position that salvation lies in collapse.

  • “One of the greatest victories for the people of America since Andrew Jackson,” Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York City, said of Donald Trump’s success in the 2016 election. We agree that Trump and Jackson have a lot in common, but neither election can be accurately described as a victory for anyone other than the wealthy elite.

https://zinnedproject-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Andrew_jackson_head-247x300.jpg November 13, 2016 | Textbooks often portray Jackson as a “man of the people.” However, as Howard Zinn describes in this excerpt from A People’s History of the United States,

Jackson was a land speculator, merchant, slave trader, and the most aggressive enemy of the Indians in early American history.

The reading below is followed by links to lessons and other resources on the Zinn Education Project website that can be used to introduce students to Andrew Jackson, including “The Cherokee/Seminole Removal Role Play” andAndrew Jackson and the ‘Children of the Forest’.”

The silence of the pseudo-left on the danger of war

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Stars%20%26%20Stripes%20Briefs_0.jpg

Any connections that the radicalized middle class once had to anti-imperialism or socialism are long gone. The categories of analysis they employ have nothing to do with class or historical materialism. War, social inequality and poverty all take a back seat to what really interests them: race, gender and their own sex lives.

Eric London, World Socialist Web Site

Submitted by Evergreene Digest Contributing Editor John Stoltenberg

20 April 2017 | A wide range of nominally left-wing political groups and publications have acquiesced to a series of dangerous military actions by the Trump administration that have brought the world to the brink of war.

On April 13, the US dropped the largest nonnuclear bomb ever deployed in history in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan. The Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) bomb weighs over 10 tons and is so destructive it reportedly obliterated the homes of peasants living several miles from the drop zone.
