https://youtu.be/UiiFaw8nLLI This book argues that there’s nothing wrong with ignoring politics. To the contrary: you should disengage from politics to pursue more effective forms of altruism. Instead of watching presidential debates, attending city council meetings, and writing letters to your representative, you should spend your time on charitable activities that are more likely to change people’s lives for the better. - Christopher Freiman, Ph.D., Why It's OK to Ignore Politics, p. 3 Dr. Chris Freiman is a philosophy professor at William & Mary and author of Why It’s OK to Ignore...

Salafis Throwing Bombs: How American and British Planners Partnered With Al-Qaeda Affiliated Groups At the Start of the Syrian Civil War

2011 syria protests.svg

Introduction In the mainstream view, al-Qaeda did not play a role in the Syria conflict until Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi dispatched his deputy, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani, to Syria in August 2011 to establish a wing of the group there, called Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front. Additionally, al-Qaeda allegedly did not carry out any military operations until December 2011 and did not announce its establishment until January 2012. However, there is evidence that al-Qaeda affiliated militants were involved in the Syrian conflict much earlier. Saudi intelligence...

Rod ’25th Amendment’ Rosenstein Started Crying Like a Little Girl Under Questioning

He felt so sad about the firing of Jim Comey, you see. Rosenstein was "overcome by emotion" when discussing Comey's firing during his interview with FBI agents "but quickly recovered and apologized," according to a summary of his interview. Then, after admitting that he knew the purpose of his memo was the justify Comey's firing, decided to hire Muller as special council over it: On May 10, Rosenstein called Mueller — already thinking about appointing a special counsel. Rosenstein had learned from an FBI briefing that Trump was not a suspect and said he appointed Mueller due to how the...

The Good The Bad And The Ugly – Democrat Candidates Answer Foreign Policy Questions

The Council On Foreign Relations has asked each Democratic candidate for President 12 questions on foreign policy.  Not all of the candidates have responded yet, but since it is CFR, I am confident they will.  A mixed bag of answers.  The one question they are all consistently bad at answering is on the issue of Israel and Palestine.  They all call for a two state solution which is never going to happen.  Neither Tulsi Gabbard or Elizabeth Warren have responded yet Election 2020: Candidates Answer CFR's...

Media Ignore Government Influence on Facebook’s Plan to Fight Government Influence

Facebook announced Thursday it was partnering with DC think tank the Atlantic Council to “monitor for misinformation and foreign interference.” The details of the plan are vague, but Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab wrote in a non-bylined Medium post (5/17/18) that the goal was to design tools “to bring us closer together” instead of “driving us further apart.” Whatever that means, exactly. Behind its generic-sounding name and “nonpartisan” label, the Atlantic Council is associated with very particular interests. It’s funded by the US Department of State and the US Navy,...

4/6/17 Philip Giraldi says IC-Military Doubt Assad Gas Narrative

Philip Giraldi, former CIA officer and Director of the Council for the National Interest, says that "military and intelligence personnel," "intimately familiar" with the intelligence, say that the narrative that Assad or Russia did it is a "sham," instead endorsing the Russian narrative that Assad's forces had bombed a storage facility. Giraldi's intelligence sources are "astonished" about the government and media narrative and are considering going public out of concern over the danger of worse war there. Giraldi also observes that the Assad regime had no motive to do such a thing at...

1/13/17 Trita Parsi on the incoming Trump administration’s acceptance (or rejection) of the Iran nuclear deal

Trita Parsi, the founder and president of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), discusses why the Iran nuclear deal has so far been more favorable to the US than Iran; Trump's (probably misinformed) opinion that the deal is terrible and must be scrapped; and what Iran's loss of its moderate political leaders could mean for diplomacy in the near future.
