Washington’s Matrix Is Closing Down Truth Throughout the Western World

Paul Craig Roberts

For a number of years I have emphasized that 9/11 was used by Dick Cheney to significantly reduce the public’s, the judiciary’s, and Congress’ access to information about what the executive branch is doing, thereby preventing legal, legislative, and electoral action against the unlawful and unconstitutional behavior of the executive branch during the Cheney/Bush and Obama regimes.

R3publicans:  ‘Monster’ Turns Our Farmers into Serfs and Sharecroppers

The Grapes of Wrath and its vision of enslavement to big agribusiness isn’t just our past—it is our present too.

By Gracy OlmsteadSeptember 10, 2018

“It’s like watching a state circle the drain.”

That’s what journalist Corie Brown said about Kansas on a recent Strong Towns podcast. This April, Brown wrote a piece for New Food Economy about her 1,800-mile drive through the state. She discussed the state’s emptying out, noting firsthand the struggles of rural towns and the farms surrounding them.

R3publicans/Snowden Validated: European Court Says the Mass Surveillance He Exposed Violates Privacy Rights: Reason.com

Since his whistle-blowing, the United Kingdom has granted itself even more power to snoop on citizens.

Scott Shackford|Sep. 13, 2018

When Edward Snowden revealed that the government was secretly collecting and storing mass amounts of our private communications data, he wasn’t just talking about the United States government. He also exposed the United Kingdom’s intelligence agency (Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ) as doing the same overseas.

Today the European Court of Human Rights ruled that the U.K.’s mass collection of everybody’s internet communications data violated privacy and failed to provide sufficient safeguards. The Guardianexplains that after Snowden exposed the British government’s role in citizen surveillance, tapping into communication networks to suck on that massive firehose of data, 14 human rights and privacy groups filed suit against the U.K.

R3publicans:  Why the Public Must Revolt Over Eminent Domain

Only democratic pressure can fight government abuse, as a recent case in Idaho demonstrates.

By PHIL HAUNSCHILDSeptember 14, 2018

Most of the time, Boise State University’s claim to fame is its blue turf football field.

But now BSU is garnering attention for something very different: its attempt to seize private land through eminent domain. The reason? It wants to build a baseball stadium for a team that does not yet exist. This has sparked outrage from the public, which sees it as not only exacerbating the community’s housing affordability crisis, but showing just how unimportant private property is in Boise.

R3publicans:  The Government -- Liability for Thee But Not for Me

Why are those who work for the state never held accountable for the damage they inflict?

By James BovardJuly 26, 2018

Few Americans recognize the Yukon-sized legal rights void in their daily lives. I was recently reminded of this hard fact after encountering what appeared to be an anti-tank spike left over from the battle of Stalingrad in a government parking lot. Unfortunately, government’s promise to serve also routinely conveys a license to harm.

R3publicans/Paul Craig Roberts: Armageddon Rides In The Balance

For some time I have pointed out the paradox of the American liberal/progressive/left being allied with the CIA, FBI, military/security complex and deep state. Now leftist Ann Garrison has noticed the paradox of this alliance. She concludes that the left has lost its mind. https://www.globalresearch.ca/we-love-the-cia-or-how-the-left-lost-its-mind/5653450

Indeed, it has.

Out of its hatred of Trump the left has united with the forces of evil and war that are leading to conflict with Russia. The left’s hatred of Trump shows that the American left has totally seperated from the interests of the working class, which elected Trump. The American left has abandoned the working class for the group victimizations and hatreds of Identity Politics. As Hillary put it, the working class comprises the “Trump deplorables.” The Democratic Party, like the Republicans, represents the ruling oligarchy.

R3publicans:  Intelligence Insiders comes out about the Russian Collusion Story

Robert Corone and Joshua Macias (I couldn’t find the spelling of their names) are being interviewed by Ann Vandersteel. They tell us some very explosive information such as there will soon be a website to bring us the truth about Russian Collusion Story and the corruption in the previous administrations. I believe that “YourVoice” and Ann Vandersteel wants this information out, so I am presenting it to you. It is just over an hour long which is standard for all the MSM networks. Hang in there and listen to some real truth, not the propaganda that the MSM is putting out.

R3publicans:  The New York Times as Iago Undermining Peace Efforts by Sowing Suspicion

Diana Johnstone

The New York Times continues to outdo itself in the production of fake news. There is no more reliable source of fake news than the intelligence services, which regularly provide their pet outlets (NYT and WaPo) with sensational stories that are as unverifiable as their sources are anonymous. A prize example was the August 24 report that US intelligence agencies don’t know anything about Russia’s plans to mess up our November elections because “informants close to … Putin and in the Kremlin” aren’t saying anything. Not knowing anything about something for which there is no evidence is a rare scoop.

R3publicans:  Trump Saboteur Op-Ed Backfires

An op-ed written in the New York Times by an anonymous “senior official in the Trump administration” has drawn harsh rebuke from both sides of the aisle and beyond – after everyone from President Trump to Glenn Greenwald to the Los Angeles Times chimed in with various criticisms.

The author, who claims to be actively working against Trump in collusion with other senior officials in what they call a “resistance inside the Trump administration,” has now been labeled everything from a coward, to treasonous, to nonexistent.

Trump, as expected, lashed out at the “failing” New York Times – before questioning whether the the mystery official really exists, and that if they do, the New York Times should reveal the author’s identity as a matter of national security.
