"More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly." -- Woody Allen
Rare sense on what's driving the global rightwing outburst that, literally, not one Good Liberal Democrat (ie, Sanders-hater) has demonstrated even the ability to reproduce, regardless of agreement, which is always telling.
Next time we "cut the grass" in Gaza, a chore you should thank us for, after we blow people up, we'll shoot each body part individually.
Enough of this decadent leftist limp-wristery: we'll find every little piece of the men, women, and children we detonate, even if we have to use our cutting-edge biotech industry to find a way to attack Araboushim detritus at the molecular level.
We must make Greater Israel Araboushim-rein! I have a PhD in philosophy, so I'm a liberal humanitarian. If you disagree on any level, you're allied with ISIS, Hitler, Haman, the Pharaoh, and noted antisemite Holocaust-denier George Soros.
What follows is a helpful romp through recent history. Review with Johnson how the New York Times has always acted with bold independence, speaking truth to power whatever the cost, in its well-deserved if self-appointed role of noble tribune and defender of justice, always printing fitting news.

It is being openly promoted as a campaign to steal Venezuelan oil for the benefit of U.S. corporations, and some powerful Democrats are cheering Trump on and joining the conspiracy. Elliott Abrams, one of the premiere butchers of the U.S. dirty wars in Central America in the 1980s, has been named the point man in the effort to bring regime change to Venezuela.

Corporate media coverage of Venezuela has been atrocious and largely uniform with the role of successive U.S. administrations in destabilizing the country almost never highlighted. Former Hugo Chávez adviser Eva Golinger and journalist and educator Roberto Lovato discuss ho…
Key bit: PAUL JAY:And I think it’s important, just to add to your point about Honduras and Obama and Clinton, that some of the–several of the leaders of the Democratic Party, including Nancy Pelosi, have actually endorsed Trump’s strategy in Venezuela. LARRY WILKERSON:This is a bipartisan issue. I think I told you, the other day I came out of a room that had a bipartisan national security elite group debating things. And one of the things–debating the future and all manner of issues, everything from whether or not we should plus up State’s 150 account, the international relations account, how we should go after the defense budget, and so forth. And so I came out of that with the distinct impression that everyone there, Democrat and Republican, had decided that perpetual war is the concomitant of empire. Put in plain English: War, interminable war, is this Empire’s debt to the future.
