Will They Succeed in Removing Trump from Office?

by
If the Pentagon and the CIA stepped in, removed Trump from office, took control, and promised a new election within a reasonable period of time, my hunch is that there would be a lot of established types, especially within the mainstream press, who would be ecstatic. They would lament that a coup had become necessary but they would justify ...

Assassination Is Murder, Even When the CIA Does It

by
An article in last Friday’s New York Times provides a perfect demonstration of what the conversion of the federal government to a national-security state has done to the mindsets of many Americans, especially with respect to assassination. The article, entitled “Masquerading as Reporter, Assassin Hunted Putin Foes in Ukraine,” details an assassination attempt by a man posing as a ...

Why Should CIA Murderers Be Protected by Secrecy?

by
Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen is upset with the New York Times for disclosing the identity of a CIA agent, Michael D’Andrea, who is a “covert operative running the CIA’s Iran operations.” In an article in the Post, he says that the information put D’Andrea’s life at risk. Of course, we’ve all grown up under the notion that it vital ...

Punishing People for Helping Dying Children Is Evil Too

by
In my article “The Evil of Killing Children,” I pointed out how the U.S. government, in an attempt to achieve regime change in Iraq, knowingly and intentionally killed hundreds of thousands of innocent children in Iraq. Unfortunately, killing those innocent Iraqi children was not the only evil action taken by U.S. officials regarding the Iraq sanctions. They also went ...

The Evil of Killing Children

by
Ever since the U.S. government was converted to a national-security state after World War II, sanctions and embargoes have been one of the principal means by which the U.S. government tries to achieve regime change in foreign countries. (Other means include assassination, coups, and invasions.) Sanctions and embargoes target the citizenry of a nation whose ruler the U.S. government is ...

Federal Judicial Cowardice in Rene Schneider’s Murder

by
In his Farewell Address in 1960, President Dwight Eisenhower, who had served as commander of allied forces in World War II, warned the American people of the danger of a national-security establishment, which he called the “military-industrial complex.” He said that this particular type of governmental structure, new in American life, posed a grave threat to the freedom and ...

Why Did the U.S. Government Prosecute Letelier’s and Moffitt’s Assassins?

Mainstream Media Lies About Memorial Day

by
For me, the most fascinating part of Memorial Day is watching and reading what mainstream media types say about all the U.S. soldiers who have died in U.S. foreign wars. The standard litany, which is what I find so fascinating, is: “They died serving their country and defending our freedom.” It’s a bromide that is inculcated into every single American, ...

The hotel is about 3 minutes from the airport. Saturday, June 3. One-day conference. This is one of the best programs we have ever put together here at FFF. If ...

Lying DEA Officials Get a Pass (Just Like Clapper)

by
Why is there one set of criminal laws for the private sector and another set for U.S. officials? The inspectors general for the State Department and the Justice Department have released a report that states that DEA officials lied to Congress about an episode in Honduras in which DEA agents killed innocent people. According to the report, the DEA falsely ...
