Trump Will Never Tweet That He Has Decided To Institute Fascism Per Se

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 hour ago
The regime is moving at break-neck speed to set its neo-fascist agenda in cement and change the country fundamentally. “Billboards. TV campaigns. Radio programs. The anti-immigrant government… uses different levers to influence public opinion… Even school textbooks… [T]he far-right leader’s message is now woven into the school curriculum.” The country’s Constitution has been re-written and the judiciary reshaped. The leader’s appointees or supporters dominate many artistic institutions and universities. A growing number of plays and exhibitions have had nationalist undertones. Rel... more »

“The Future Ain't What It Used To Be”

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 hour ago
*“The Future Ain't What It Used To Be”* by Chris Martenson "This marks our our 10th year of doing this. And by “this”, we mean using data, logic and reason to support the very basic conclusion that infinite growth on a finite planet is impossible. Surprisingly, this simple, rational idea - despite its huge and fast-growing pile of corroborating evidence - still encounters tremendous pushback from society. Why? Because it runs afoul of most people's deep-seated belief systems. Our decade of experience delivering this message has hammered home what behavioral scientists have been tel... more »

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 1 hour ago
*The National/AFP*: *Russia demands UK cut over 50 diplomats in new tit-for-tat move* The call is seen as Moscow's retaliation to the mass coordinated expulsion of Russian diplomatic staff by the UK's allies following a nerve agent attack in Salisbury, England. Russia demanded on Saturday that Britain further slash its diplomatic presence as a crisis in ties between Moscow and the West escalated over a nerve agent attack on a former spy.

These 5 Wonder Weapons Were Hitler's Plan to Save Nazi Germany. They Failed.

Warfare History Network at The National Interest - 2 hours ago
*Warfare History Network* *History, Europe* But they may have changed history. During Germany’s early string of victories between 1939 and 1941, Hitler informed the members of the nation’s aerospace industry that he had decided to impose new restrictions on aircraft research and development. However, by 1942 the Führer and his Air Force High Command (Oberkommando der Luftwaffe) had recognized their mistake. With the increasing weakness in the fighter arm, Hitler saw that his old faithful aircraft like the Messerschmitt Me-109 were losing ground to the new Allied long-range fight... more »

*Zachary Keck* *Security, Asia* How would China respond? Two U.S. senators are pushing the Trump administration to sell F-35 Joint Strike Fighters to Taiwan. In a letter addressed to Trump on March 26, Sens. John Cornyn and James Inhofe urged the president to sell Taiwan the F-35B fighter jets. If that could not be arranged, Cornyn and Inhofe said Washington should sell Taipei the F-16V. “The survivability of the F35B and modern long-range sensors could help Taiwan intercept Chinese missiles, promoting deterrence well into the next decade.

*Charlie Gao* *Security, Europe* Yes, it could come in "robot" format. The T-14 Armata, Russia’s next-generation tank, is finally nearing readiness. However, information on recent development has been scarce. A recent interview in February 2018 with Vyacheslav Khalitov, the deputy director of Uralvagonzavod (UVZ), has shed some light on what progress the Armata has made since its last public display.

This Is How Trump Can Successfully Navigate the China Trade Trap

Peter Harrell at The National Interest - 2 hours ago
*Peter Harrell* *Economics, Asia* Trump cannot let his administration be bought off by Beijing’s initial concessions if he wants to reverse years of American failure in pressing China to change its economic practices. Foreign-policy experts and America’s allies have roundly criticized President Trump’s new tariffs and investment restrictions as a potential opening salvo in a global trade war. But at least rhetorically, the Trump administration argues that its goal is not simply to protect American industries from foreign competition. Rather, the Trump administration argues that ... more »

Other animals fight for territory or food; but, uniquely in the animal kingdom, human beings fight for their 'beliefs.'

Last Lenten vigil at BIW - up next more work on conversion

Bruce K. Gagnon at Organizing Notes - 8 hours ago
There were 30 of us at Bath Iron Works (BIW) today for the final Lenten season vigil. Several commented in our closing circle that it will be sad not to have the vigil in the coming weeks because this Lenten series of vigils have been extraordinarily special - likely because of the extra people that turned out due to our GD corporate welfare campaign. Our next BIW protest will probably be during the 'christening' of another destroyer at the shipyard though at this time we don't know when that will happen. So stay tuned.

Russia ‘Novichok’ Hysteria Proves Politicians and Media Haven’t Learned The Lessons of Iraq

Patrick Henningsen at 8 hours ago
[image: undefined] If there’s one thing to be gleaned from the current atmosphere of anti Russian hysteria in the West, it’s that the US-led sustained propaganda campaign is starting to pay dividends. It’s not only the hopeless political classes and media miscreants who believe that Russia is hacking, meddling, and poisoning our progressive democratic utopia – with many pinning their political careers to this by now that’s it’s too late for them to turn back. As it was with Iraq in 2003, these dubious public figures require a degree of public support for their policies, and unfortun... more »

'The two positions are irreconcilable. If Chakrabarti is right then there is no anti-Semitism in Labour, and Corbyn is simply being manipulated by public pressure. If Corbyn's latest admissions are to be believed then he was at best mistaken, and at worst lied, when he defended Chakrabarti against allegations of a whitewash report – which it now clearly appears to be.
