Taylor Report: The US War on China's Economic Model, Segment 1

1 周 4 天 ago
The United States, a much-vaunted imperial power and economic powerhouse, can't take the heat: it can't compete with China's advances in technology and industry. So what to do? Hobble and obstruct is the new plan, and the ultimate step is military intimidation, even war. Of course, as Stephen reminds us, the United States always falsified its own 'free-market' success story by hiding the fact the public has paid all the bills for research and development, while turning over the benefits to private companies (who reap the profits). What is looming into view is the superior development model of China, which shares the benefits.

This Week In Palestine: Josh Ruebner and Lamis Deek on the Trump administration's efforts to repress the Palestinian people, Segment 1

1 周 4 天 ago
Josh Ruebner, Policy Director at the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights, is followed by Lamis Deek, Palestinian civil rights attorney in New York City. We see this repression in a myriad number of forms. For example, Trump's cutoff of the U.S. share of UNWRA funding; ending bilateral "humanitarian" assistance from AID; closure of the PLO office in Washington DC; transfer of the U.S. Embassy from TelAviv to Jerusalem; and the dissolution of the U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem. Ruebner explains why this last slam may be the most significant of all. Ms. Deek expresses her admiration of the Palestinian protesters at the Gaza apartheid fence. They continue protesting in spite of a continuous rain of death-dealing US-made dumdum bullets, all approved by the Trump administration. But first: Having failed to pass its unconstitutional anti-BDS legislation in the open, the Israel Lobby and its allies in Congress are conniving surreptitiously to have it added to the must-pass congressional omnibus spending bill, where it will get no debate. [Post-show note: it appears that this "must-pass" bill, whether poisoned this way or not, did NOT pass when it "must," thus triggering Trump's notorious government shutdown.] The ACLU has seen an updated version being considered for inclusion in the spending bill. While Capitol Hill offices claim the First Amendment concerns have been resolved, this is nonsense. Knowingly supporting BDS could result in criminal financial penalties of up to $1 million. Were this legislation to pass and survive review by the new Supreme Court, federal officials would have yet another new weapon at their disposal to chill and punish activity supporting the rights of Palestinians.

The Alembic Files: The Ominous Parallels - 4, Segment 1

1 周 5 天 ago
In this segment, the salient point is driven home that to manipulate the masses, it essential to dispense with facts and reality; to stress that action is primacy over thought. Hitler: "Faith is harder to shake than knowledge. Love succumbs less to change than respect. Hate is more enduring than aversion and the impetus to the mightiest upheavals on this Earth has at all times consisted less in scientific knowledge dominating the masses than in the fanaticism which inspired them and sometimes in hysteria that drove them forward." Hitler on the Catholic church’s creed. "The church has realized that anything and everything can be built upon a document of that sort, no matter how contradictory or irreconcilable with it. The faithful will swallow it whole so long as logical reasoning is never allowed to be brought to bear on it." Goebbels' four commandments: Hear nothing that we do not wish you to hear See nothing that we do not wish you to see. Believe nothing that we do not wish you to believe. Think nothing that we do not wish you to think.
