He did so in flagrant violation of international law. It's not the first time. It won't be the last. It's longstanding US policy. All US wars are lawless. They violate the Constitution's Supremacy Clause (Article VI, Clause 2). It states all US laws and treaties "shall be the supreme law of the land…" International law is clear and ...

Ravaging And Destroying Syria

Advancing America's imperium matters most. Core international, constitutional and US statute laws aren't important. Nor high crimes against peace.

He’s guilty of horrendous high crimes against peace. He bears full responsibility for what ...

Israel Murders Journalists

Israel threatens press freedom. Repressive Knesset legislation targets speech, assembly, association, and the right to dissent. So does Kafkaesque justice. Military censorship bans, buries or sanitizes information about its crimes of war and against humanity it wants suppressed. It willfully suppresses what everyone needs to know. It does so on the spurious pretext of national security. It gags ...

Merciless Murder

When the United Nations, a globalist-led organization calls Israel and its leadership “criminal”, it is because the crimes being committed are so great, that not even the UN Secretary General can justify.
