Article: How Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Congressional Republicans, Created Child-Refugee Flood | OpEdNews

Article: How Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Congressional Republicans, Created Child-Refugee Flood | OpEdNews: In that year, a military coup, which was initiated by fewer than a dozen aristocratic or "oligarchic" families of Honduras, overthrew that country's popular and democratically elected progressive President Manuel Zelaya. As the present reporter has previously documented in detail, the then-Secretary-of-State Hillary Clinton immediately after the coup blocked the efforts of virtually all other nations' heads-of-state, they being opposed to the coup; and she also prevailed upon the then-dithering U.S. President Barack Obama to agree to provide crucially needed ongoing U.S. military and financial assistance to the coup-imposed government, for a long-enough period of time so that that government could finally become accepted internationally as the "legitimate government" of Honduras. This legitimation was done by means of the usual rigged "elections," in which the post-coup "interim government" was replaced by a head-of-state whom the voters selected from a pre-screened field of candidates whose every member was approved by the controlling council of oligarchs -- those very same ruling families who had overthrown Zelaya. The names of those families are included in my previous news-report, along with the details of how Clinton, Obama, and all congressional Republicans (then under the guidance of the head of the Heritage Foundation, the former U.S. Senator, Jim DeMint), propped up and sustained Honduras's dictators in power.

Article: The Atrocity | OpEdNews: Again without any purpose. Again with the certainty that after it's all over, everything will essentially be the same as it was before.

But I can hardly hear the sirens which warn of rockets coming towards Tel Aviv. I cannot take my mind off the awful thing that happened in Jerusalem.

IF A gang of neo-Nazis had kidnapped a 16-year old boy in a London Jewish neighborhood in the dark of the night, driven him to Hyde Park, beaten him up, poured gasoline into his mouth, doused him all over and set him on fire -- what would have happened?

Article: Ukraine's Terrorists Speak | OpEdNews: Eric Zuesse

You won't see or read about them on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, Fox, MSNBC, The New York Times, or virtually any of America's other propaganda-media, except that these people are "terrorists," and that they thus constitute threats to U.S. national security; but, here they are, speaking for themselves, which America's propaganda-media won't let you hear, because the U.S. Government -- the regime in Washington -- actually created these "terrorists," when it overthrew their government via U.S.-manipulated "Maidan" protests in February, and replaced it with ours, which bombed their homes; so, you'll now see and hear these people, right here:

Article: NYT Protects the Fogh Machine | OpEdNews

Article: NYT Protects the Fogh Machine | OpEdNews: A principal way that the New York Times and other leading U.S. news outlets engage in propaganda is by selecting which facts to include in a story and which ones to exclude, a process exemplified by a Times article on an interview in which the head of NATO excoriates Russia over Ukraine.

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen accused Russia of playing a "double game," warned the West not to be fooled by the peaceful overtures of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and declared, "There's no doubt that Russia is heavily engaged in destabilizing eastern Ukraine, and they continue their activities."

However, since Rasmussen provided no evidence, his credibility would seem to be central to this story. And, on Wednesday, correspondents Mark Landler and Michael R. Gordon provided some background about Rasmussen, noting that he served as prime minister of Denmark before getting the NATO gig in 2009.

• Hooshang Amirahmadi, an Iranian-American professor of international relations at Rutgers University;

• Agha Saeed, a former political science professor at California State University who champions Muslim civil liberties and Palestinian rights;

• Nihad Awad, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the largest Muslim civil rights organization in the country.

U.S. Flag Recalled After Causing 143 Million Deaths | The Onion - America's Finest News Source

U.S. Flag Recalled After Causing 143 Million Deaths | The Onion - America's Finest News Source: WASHINGTON—Citing a series of fatal malfunctions dating back to 1777, flag manufacturer Annin & Company announced Monday that it would be recalling all makes and models of its popular American flag from both foreign and domestic markets.

Representatives from the nation's leading flag producer claimed that as many as 143 million deaths in the past two centuries can be attributed directly to the faulty U.S. models, which have been utilized extensively since the 18th century in sectors as diverse as government, the military, and public education.

"It has come to our attention that, due to the inherent risks and hazards it poses, the American flag is simply unfit for general use," said Annin & Company president Ronald Burman, who confirmed that the number of flag-related deaths had noticeably spiked since 2003. "I would like to strongly urge all U.S. citizens: If you have an American flag hanging in your home or place of business, please discontinue using it immediately."

Article: July 4th Militarist Bunkum (an encore by request) | OpEdNewsOn July 4th all across America there will be patriotic speeches about our soldiers who gave their lives for their country. To an informed person these speeches are curious. I am hard pressed to think of any examples of our soldiers giving their lives for our country. US Marine General Smedley Butler had the same problem. He said that his Marines gave their lives for United Fruit Company's control of Central America. "War is a racket," said General Butler, pointing out that US participation in World War I produced 21,000 new American millionaires and billionaires.

Article: NYT Dishes More Ukraine Propaganda | OpEdNews

Article: NYT Dishes More Ukraine Propaganda | OpEdNews: As you read or watch the mainstream U.S. media's accounts of the Ukrainian government's military offensive against ethnic Russians in East Ukraine, it's worth remembering that these MSM outlets have been feeding Americans a highly biased narrative of the crisis non-stop from the beginning.

For instance, New York Times correspondent David M. Herszenhorn included in a largely celebratory account of the Ukrainian blitzkrieg that overwhelmed ethnic Russian positions in the town of Slovyansk on Saturday this summary of the conflict's background:
