U.S. Involvement in Yemen – Complicit In Mass Murder

Yemen doesn’t get a lot of news in the American press. But the number of dead, dying and starving in Yemen is absolutely enormous (millions – as in at least 22 million who are afflicted). And much of the fault lies directly upon the United States.

Brazil Votes Far Right

This is actually pretty scary when you consider what could happen. Jair Bolsonaro wins Brazil’s election. But he’s a far-right violent hypocritical extremist and if you don’t actually know what he believes and wants, you probably should:

This year’s elections were particularly fraught, marked by dramatic polarization, political violence, and massive disinformation campaigns on social media, in a country that has been roiled by years of social, economic, and political crises. Since 2013, millions of people of all political stripes have repeatedly taken to the streets in protest; Brazil has struggled to climb out of the worst recession in history; massive corruption scandals have destabilized political institutions and major economic players; former president Dilma Rousseff (also from the Workers’ Party) was impeached on dubious grounds; her successor, president Michel Temer (the most despised leader in Brazil’s democratic history), has pushed through a series of unpopular austerity measures; and Lula was jailed, a process which has exposed the judiciary to relentless criticism for perceived partisanship.

So now we have martial law to look forward to – while they kick your door down without probable cause or Constitutional authority.

Wow! What do you do when the President of the Unites States pardons a monster like this?

There is such an incredible amount of evidence and consistency to this man’s actions over many years that it defies all probabilities of his claimed innocence. And yet – Donald Trump, bigot in chief pardons Arpaio.

Press Freedom Index for 2011 – 2012

Freedom Of The Press 2011Press Freedom Index for 2011-2012.

Negative rankings indicate a higher score (more press freedom).  Countries are listed in top-scoring order.

U.S. readers will note that our supposed “freedom of the press” is actually headed farther down (by double digits) into the toilet, ranking at only 47.

Double arrows, up or down, means that the position has changed by ten position (or more).
