The world has learned a lot watching America’s Middle East freedom agenda wind its way through the Fertile Crescent, North Africa, and then up the Nile, first under George W. Bush and then under Barack Obama. The first of these lessons is that when U.S. policymakers selectively deploy the rhetoric of democracy and human rights against target governments, their words are typically accompanied by practical measures to destabilize those governments, including U.S. allies.
A similar operation is now underway in Israel, where the Biden administration has departed from diplomatic protocol by repeatedly advertising its meetings with the political faction seeking to undo Israel’s newly elected right-wing government. More significantly, Biden’s State Department is now directly funding local activists organizing the protests. By publicly putting its prestige and money behind the coalition that lost the latest Israeli election, Washington is openly advertising its desire to bring down Netanyahu.
Maybe it seems strange that the current U.S. presidential administration considers Israel’s government hostile to American interests. Why, it was just months ago that Biden aides mediated an arrangement between Israel and Lebanon over their maritime border. Even practical, hard-minded Israeli officials said the deal enhanced security and may even lead to more positive steps with the Beirut government. Surely that’s indicative of good relations between Washington and Jerusalem, no?
In reality, the maritime agreement was just the latest in a series of initiatives to realign U.S. interests with those of the terror regime in Tehran…
I, for one, am looking forward to Monday’s reminders from the usual talking heads, when they advise us yet again that the terrorist attack on Rushdie is a perversion of a peaceful and noble world religion, and how the hundreds of millions who adhere to it are not true Muslims.
After hours of surgery, Rushdie was on a ventilator and unable to speak on Friday evening after an attack condemned by writers and politicians around the world as an assault on the freedom of expression.
“The news is not good,” Andrew Wylie, his book agent, wrote in an email. “Salman will likely lose one eye; the nerves in his arm were severed; and his liver was stabbed and damaged.”
At least six missiles were fired Sunday toward the U.S. consulate in Iraq’s northern city of Irbil, with several missiles hitting the building, Iraqi and U.S. security officials said. A U.S. official said the missiles were launched from neighboring Iran.
If you think the vandalism and violence witnessed at the CGL pipeline isn’t an economic hostage taking, similar to the yahoos who shut down our border crossings, give your head a shake. Let’s look at how hard and fast Canada has fallen when it comes to LNG investment.
The US was behind Canada when it comes to LNG planning a decade ago. Now it has lapped Canada many times. While we struggle to build one large scale LNG plant, the US and world have moved on.
In response – Its not rocket science. This is an example of many Gofundme accounts they operate & continue to receive funds from to pay for illegal activity. Millions have been raised over the last decade by Eco Activists. They use our language& sacred terminology to get taxpayers to send money
On Thursday, February 17, 2022, shortly after midnight, Houston RCMP was called to the Marten Forest Service Road (FSR) after Coastal Gas Link (CGL) security reported acts of violence at their work site.
It was reported approximately 20 people, some armed with axes, were attacking security guards and smashing their vehicle windows. It was initially reported that some CGL employees were trapped, but all had managed to safely leave the area.
Upon police attendance at the 41 km mark, the roadway had been blocked with downed trees, tar covered stumps, wire, boards with spikes in them, and fires had been lit throughout the debris. As police worked their way through the debris and traps, several people threw smoke bombs and fire lit sticks at the police, injuring one officer.
“The waiver, which was rescinded by the Trump administration in May 2020, had allowed Russian, Chinese and European companies to carry out non-proliferation work at Iranian nuclear sites,” Reuters reported. “The waiver was needed to allow for technical discussions that were key to the talks about return to the deal formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).”
