New Report Details Massive Sexual Abuse in the Congo By UN Peacekeepers

An investigation into the actions of United Nations Peacekeepers in the Democratic Republic of the Congo shines a light on years of rampant misconduct that has left thousands of broken lives. Victims of Peacekeepers say they were impregnated as children, left without child support, trafficked and raped. Since 1999, the US has deployed its soldiers to the Congo, with the current UN mission dubbed ‘Monusco.’ While the UN acknowledged past abuses by its soldiers in the Congo, the new report was more significant in scope, interviewing over 2,500 people, including women and girls who were...

COI #205: Biden’s Failures on Covid and Yemen

coi205

On COI #205, Kyle Anzalone breaks down Biden's failure to reign in Covid and the Saudi “pariah” state. The US is facing staffing shortages in the medical field. Recently, a federal court reinstated a Biden rule requiring healthcare workers to take a Covid vaccine. Massachuttes has canceled 'elective' procedures to compensate for the government-created shortage. The Pentagon is now discharging unvaccinated soldiers.  Kyle also discusses the war in Yemen. Biden promised to end offensive weapons sales to Saudi Arabia. However, Saudi Arabia continues to bomb Yemen multiple times a day with...

For One Day, Protestors Stopped the War Machine

coservative protestors 2013 dsc 0034

I’ve attended most of the major antiwar protests in Washington since 9/11. At a 2005 protest, a cop tried to whack me on the head with a wooden pole. At a 2007 protest, I snapped a picture showing George W. Bush hanging next to the U.S. Capitol. But my favorite protest was a potent little ruckus that I almost missed. On a sunny late summer day in 2013, I ambled to downtown Washington to hike with a bunch of folks who enjoyed bantering as much as I did. The route for the jaunt started on the National Mall, passing by the Smithsonian, heading toward the World War II Memorial and points...

Douglas Macgregor Joining Pentagon As Senior Advisor To Acting Secdef

Good news! From Axios: President Trump's newly installed acting Pentagon chief is bringing on a senior adviser in a sign the administration wants to accelerate the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the Middle East before the end of his presidency in January, three people familiar with the move told Axios. Why it matters: A senior administration official says a wave of firings at the Pentagon and the hiring of Ret. Army Col. Douglas Macgregor is in part a settling of Trump's personal scores — but senior White House officials also have made clear "they want them more publicly to talk about...

CNN Has Been Taken Over By The RUSSIANS!!

Here the obviously compromised-by-Russia CNN "reporters" Jasmine Wright, Rachel Janfaza and Gregory Krieg say there are reasons for leftists to oppose Biden: Progressive activists are wary over criminal justice under a Biden-Harris administration They cite all leftie activists who say they are going to vote for Biden-Harris, but without enthusiasm. This is a well-known Russian Kompromat Active Measures Psychological Operations tactic! The all-Powerful Vladimir Putin must have sent the GRU and FSB to take over CNN, our last bastion of freedom and truth protecting America from Russian...

Both Parties Pretend to Care About Ending Endless Wars

On FPF #537, I discuss both parties claiming they will end the endless wars, but neither is serious about actually doing it. Americans keep voting for the president who promises to be less interventionist. However, after taking office, Bush, Obama, and now Trump have expanded wars rather than ending them. Our wars are the most destructive and wasteful part of the US empire. It makes us all poorer and leaves a wake of destruction overseas.  Links YouTube – Conflicts of Interest Facebook – Conflicts of Interest Twitter – Conflicts of Interest Will Porter - Kenosha...
