James Bovard on American taxpayers’ funding Afghan child rape.

Ron Paul asks, Is North Korea really a “state sponsor of terrorism”?

Glenn Greenwald details how the imbeciles at CNN unwittingly and carelessly aired a “fake news” story without checking its sources or the actual information they were disseminating, and how CBS and MSNBC followed CNN’s lead. I suspect that someone, claiming to be an independent source but probably a Trump sympathizer, sent CNN the email with the “fake news” to show how CNN broadcasts “fake news.” Like, a “gotcha thing”?

That was after Brian Ross was suspended by ABC News without pay for four weeks for his false “fake news” story about Donald Trump asking Mike Flynn to communicate with the Russians while Trump was still a candidate, even though that actually happened after Trump won the election. Apparently, that fake news caused the Dow to fall over 350 points, which caused Trump to encourage those who lost money on that day to sue ABC.

What else is “fake”? That Mike Flynn actually did anything wrong. David Stockman details how the FBI committed a “blatant entrapment exercise with malice aforethought.” The FBI questioned Flynn based on his identity being unconstitutionally unmasked in recordings made of talks between him and the Russian ambassador, talks which uncovered no evidence whatsoever of any wrongdoings or “collusions” of any kind. The FBI had no reason to interview him in the first place, but they did so to get him to make statements which contradicted his precious statements on those recordings. It is a classic entrapment case. The real criminals here are the FBI. And it was probably for political reasons, with the possible intention of taking down the newly elected President that they don’t like!

As Sheldon Richman observed, the FBI is not your friend.

Jacob Hornberger on the mainstream media’s deference to authority in the JFK assassination. (Besides being purveyors of “fake news,” the media are also government stenographers, live in fear of the bureaucrats, and are spineless, obedient sheeple, in my view.) And Hornberger asks, What good are domestic military bases?
