In case you have not heard (and I hadn’t until yesterday), there are calls for the impeachment of President Barack Obama over military actions in Syria. Congressman Walter Jones, a North Carolina Republican, and just a few activist groups are raising the issue as the false flags of war are unfurled over the Syrian [...]
The citizens of this country are in no mood to see U.S. military involvement in Syria. Of course, it has already begun. Consultation, secret assistance, and money given for “communications” (which allows other money for weapons) all contribute to the military effort. For months, Hillary Clinton demanded that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad leave the country. [...]
The president and the mainstream media, along with the capital in-crowd, celebrate their wonderfulness each year at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner.

Robert Fisk says claims of chemical weapons use by the Syrian government are without support and that he can “trash” the evidence supporting those claims.

With Syria and Iran, President Barack Obama faces getting mired in two wars that could set the entire Middle East aflame, and perhaps the rest of the Islamic world, too.
Such an outcome would be in part due to Mr. Obama’s Middle Eastern policy, and the willingness [...]
Not many people like the messes Congress makes but everybody should see how they’re made.
This article takes a close look at the legislation just passed by Congress and signed by President Obama allowing the Secretary of Agriculture to issue executive orders that bypass regulations, safety, and science for the purpose of speeding genetically modified [...]
General Karl W. Eikenberry was right in November 2009 when he urged less support for an Afghanistan ruled by President Hamid Karzai. President Obama and Generals Stanley McChrystal and David Petraeus all wanted a surge. The policy failed. The general won’t say it but he told them so in a second opinion solicited by Obama. [...]
I’ve known Mark Karlin (online) for a while. As editor of BuzzFlash, he was generous enough to run my voting rights and other articles on more than a few occasions. He’s an excellent analyst in addition to his editorial skills and a solid progressive Democrat from Chicago. All the more reason to take his article [...]

Never mind that the public doesn’t want to hear it. The Congressional Republicans are jumping up and down over [...]
