The US-Dominated West: Decadent, Depraved and Dangerously Deranged

Stephen Lendman

An earlier article said the following: If nations had personhood, the US would be diagnosed as psychopathic, sociopathic, or both, and pure evil. There’s nothing normal about raping and destroying nations to control them, to loot their resources and exploit their people as serfs — no matter the human toll.

US ruling officials in high places are demagogic, egocentric, cold-hearted, manipulative, ruthless, remorseless, callous, shallow, impulsive, ego-centric, dishonest, deceitful, dangerous, depraved and deranged. They fit criminal psychology expert Robert Hare’s definition of psychopathological derangement. They threaten everyone everywhere in pursuit of their rage to dominate by whatever it takes to achieve their aims.

NYU’s Center on International Cooperation’s senior fellow, James Traub said the following:

He took note of what he called “a prominent, pro-American, French” analyst who called hegemon USA “decadent.” Not only decadent but depraved.

The same reality applies throughout West, especially to Britain, France and Germany. Where hegemon USA goes, subservient Western vassal states follow — even when harming their interests.


Has World War III Begun?

Stephen Lendman

If the “world ends” ahead, I’m betting on a bang, not a whimper.

Most wars begin incrementally, rather than with a big bang. One thing leads to another then to full-blown conflict. WW I began before Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand’s assassination — WW II before Pearl Harbor.

Months of advance planning precedes wars. US-led post-9/11 wars on Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq, Libya, and Syria were planned long before the mother of all state-sponsored false flags to that time.

Years of US orchestrated and directed proxy war on Russia by Ukraine on Donbass preceded Moscow’s special military operation (SMO). Two months later, has WW III begun? Has hegemon USA-dominated NATO begun pushing things toward East/West confrontation? Is it inevitable ahead?

In cahoots with dominant US hardliners, Britain’s so-called armed forces minister, Heappey, said the BoJo regime considers cross-border strikes by Kiev on Russian territory with UK-supplied weapons a strategy it supports.


Demonizing Russia with Diabolical Aims in Mind

Last month, dementia Joe’s double disgracefully called preeminent world leader Vladimir Putin a...

💬...“war criminal…a murderous dictator…a butcher…a pure thug (sic).”

On Monday, the White House impostor was at it again. Demonizing Putin gratuitously, he falsely accused him of civilian deaths in Bucha, Ukraine — what Russia had nothing to do with. Disgracefully calling Putin a “war criminal” again, he added:

💬 “We have to get all the detail so this can be…a war crime trial.”

So-called “details” the regime he nominally heads are invented, not real. No evidence connects Russia to deaths of civilians in Bucha or anywhere else in Ukraine — nothing suggesting that war crimes were committed by its military. Indisputable evidence links Nazified Ukrainian forces to crimes of war, against humanity and horrific atrocities. According to international affairs analyst Adriel Kasonta:

💬 “I’m terrified to see horrors” and other inhumane acts “committed by Ukrainian neo-Nazi groups.” They include torture, “lynching people, (beating) them…smashing their identity…tying them to lampposts” to cause pain, suffering and death. “Now we are supposed to glorify (Ukrainian) Nazis only for the mere fact that they are fighting the Western boogeyman, which is Russia.” “So-called human rights watchers are blind to the fact that human rights are being violated in Ukraine by Ukrainians.”


Slow, Steady Progress by Russia v. the Empire of Lies

Stephen Lendman

Here’s interventionist Blinken’s recitation of rubbish last week, vomiting one debunked Big Lie after another, saying: “(W)e worked very hard to try to keep (things) on a diplomatic track (and) dialogue (sic).” “Russia…reject(ed) diplomacy and dialogue and pursue(d) aggression (sic).”

Fact: For nearly 8 years, Russia went all-out diplomatically to halt US-orchestrated and directed aggression by Nazified Ukraine against Donbass — to no avail. It begs the question. Why didn’t Russia conclude sooner that pursuing diplomacy with US-dominated NATO and Kiev was a colossal waste of time? It achieved nothing positive since the Obama/Biden regime’s 2014 coup, replacing democratic rule in Ukraine with Nazified tyranny.

Fact: Russia intervened against Ukraine in response to pleas for help from the leadership of Donestk and Lugansk for military help against Kiev’s aggression.

Fact: Article 51 of the UN Charter affirms the right of self-defense for all nations under attack.

Fact: Russia responded militarily because years of its good faith diplomatic efforts were consistently rebuffed by hegemon USA, its NATO vassal states and colonized Ukraine.


Over 4,600 5,200 7,200 7,800 8,600 10,500 10,700 11,100 11,900 Doctors and Scientists Signed the Global Flu/Covid Declaration Against Toxic Mass-Jabbing

International Alliance of Physicians and Medical Scientists
(in Croatian)(in Dutch) (in Italian) (in Slovak) (in Spanish)

We the physicians of the world, united and loyal to the Hippocratic Oath [*], recognizing the profession of medicine as we know it is at a crossroad, are compelled to declare the following;

WHEREAS, it is our utmost responsibility and duty to uphold and restore the dignity, integrity, art and science of medicine;

WHEREAS, there is an unprecedented assault on our ability to care for our patients;

WHEREAS, public policy makers have chosen to force a “one size fits all” treatment strategy, resulting in needless illness and death, rather than upholding fundamental concepts of the individualized, personalized approach to patient care which is proven to be safe and more effective;

WHEREAS, physicians and other health care providers working on the front lines, utilizing their knowledge of epidemiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology, are often first to identify new, potentially life saving treatments;

WHEREAS, physicians are increasingly being discouraged from engaging in open professional discourse and the exchange of ideas about new and emerging diseases, not only endangering the essence of the medical profession, but more importantly, more tragically, the lives of our patients;

WHEREAS, thousands of physicians are being prevented from providing treatment to their patients, as a result of barriers put up by pharmacies, hospitals, and public health agencies, rendering the vast majority of healthcare providers helpless to protect their patients in the face of disease. Physicians are now advising their patients to simply go home (allowing the virus to replicate) and return when their disease worsens, resulting in hundreds of thousands of unnecessary patient deaths, due to failure-to-treat;

WHEREAS, this is not medicine. This is not care. These policies may actually constitute crimes against humanity.


German Trial Lawyer’s Legal Team Suing for Flu/Covid Damages

Stephen Lendman

Licensed to practice law in Germany and the US, trial lawyer for 26 years Reiner Fuellmich is one of four German Corona Investigative Committee members involved in documenting damages from what he calls the invented US/Western “corona crisis.” Based on what’s already known, he renamed it the "Corona Scandal," stressing:

[Responsible parties] must be criminally prosecuted and sued for civil damages.

Along with over 1,000 lawyers and more than 10,000 medical and scientific experts, he and his team began legal proceedings against the Pharma-controlled CDC and WEF dark forces for all things related to flu/covid crimes against humanity.

Besides masks that don’t protect and risk respiratory harm, PCR tests nearly always wrong when positive, and destructive to normal interactions social distancing, Fuellmich called flu/covid jabs designed to harm health, not protect and preserve it as falsely claimed, in breach of the Geneva Conventions, the Nuremberg Code and other human rights laws.

Explaining his mission, he said he and other Corona Investigative Committee members began listening to [evidence presented by] a large number of international scientists and experts…to find answers to questions about” what’s gone on since early last year. Major cases of corporate “corruption and fraud…pale in comparison [to] the extent of the damage that the corona crisis has caused and continues to cause,” he stressed, adding:

On a political level, everything must be done to make sure that no one will ever again be in a position of such power as to be able to defraud humanity or to attempt to manipulate us with their corrupt agendas — [especially on what relates to health and well-being].


The Netanyahu Regime’s Diabolical Reign of Terror

Stephen Lendman

What’s going on in Gaza and throughout the Occupied Territories is all about inflicting maximum pain, suffering, misery, mass slaughter and destruction — with no end of it in prospect.

Like its predecessors, the Netanyahu regime is guilty of high crimes of war, against humanity, and slow-motion genocide against millions of Palestinians.

Through around midday May 15, over 150 Palestinians have been massacred in cold blood, including around a dozen in the West Bank and East Jerusalem — women and children among them.

Around 3,300 others were wounded, many seriously, throughout the Territories, according to the Palestine Red Crescent Society. The destruction, death and injury toll continues to rise exponentially as long Israeli terror-bombing, shelling, and rampaging on the ground go on unchecked. Numbers of missing Palestinians are believed buried beneath rubble from Israeli terror-bombing. So far, most world community nations largely looked the other way — effectively supporting Israel’s reign of terror by not condemning it and demanding accountability.


Julian Assange: "Truth ultimately is all we have."

“I am defenceless and am counting on you and others of good character to save my life.”

Below is the full text of Assange’s letter to Gordon Dimmack:

I have been isolated from all ability to prepare to defend myself, no laptop, no internet, no computer, no library so far, but even if I do get access it will be just for half an hour with everyone else once a week. Just two visits a month and it takes weeks to get someone on the call list and the Catch-22 in getting their details to be security screened. Then all calls except lawyer are recorded and are a maximum 10 minutes and in a limited 30 minutes each day in which all prisoners compete for the phone. And credit? Just a few pounds a week and no one can call in.

A superpower that has been preparing for 9 years with hundreds of people and untold millions spent on the case. I am defenceless and am counting on you and others of good character to save my life. [Press 'More' to continue reading Julian's letter.]

Christmas in America

Stephen Lendman

Good tidings and cheer at Christmas and throughout the year are for America's privileged alone. No joy to the world for most others. Washington is the grinch that stole Christmas. Bah Humbug defines its agenda.

America's criminal class is bipartisan. Responsible for growing human misery. Unprecedented in modern times. Privileged Americans never had it better. Ordinary ones face lump of coal harshness. Hard times keep getting harder. Reflected in institutionalized inequality. Growing poverty.

High unemployment. Multiples higher than phony Labor Department numbers. An epidemic of underemployment persists. Jobs paying poverty or sub-poverty wages. With few or no benefits. Households need two or three to get by.

Growing millions face "one impossible choice after another," according to Poverty USA. "(B)etween food and medicine(s), getting to work or paying the heating bill." Census data show around half the population living in poverty or bordering it. In the world's richest country. Affecting nearly 60% of children. America has a higher percent of working poor than any other industrialized country.

Human suffering is real. Neo-liberal harshness is official policy. Force-fed austerity reflects it. Social injustice is rife. Bipartisan complicity supports it. Ordinary people are increasingly on their own out of luck. America's social contact is targeted for elimination. Disappearing when most needed. Monied interests alone are served. Inequality is appalling. A race to the bottom persists. Class warfare defines it.

Most working Americans get by from paycheck to paycheck. One missed one away from possible homelessness, hunger and despair. Inflation adjusted median household income keeps dropping. Americans have less to spend on increasingly more expensive goods and services. People [need to] eat. Drive cars. Pay rent. Service mortgages. Have medical expenses. Heat and/or air-condition residences. Have children in college. Pay transportation costs.


The CIA: Crime Without Punishment

Stephen Lendman

Longstanding US policy reflects business as usual. Ruthless and then some. With bipartisan support. Democrats and Republicans largely in lockstep. Rhetoric alone separating them. Supporting permanent wars of aggression. State terror at home and abroad. Abrogation of fundamental democratic principles. Systematic breaches of international, constitutional and US statute laws. Supporting wealth, power and privilege exclusively. Letting popular needs go begging. Burying hard truths. Substituting Big Lies. Including about torture remaining official US policy. At home and abroad. In US prisons. Federal, state and local ones. Global black sites. In dozens of countries. Authorized by Bush and Obama.

Guantanamo the tip of the iceberg. Unknown thousands brutalized worldwide. Some murdered. Others traumatized into zombies. Coverup and denial buries the worst of what remains ongoing. Sadism writ large.

The Senate Intelligence Committee torture report excluded what most needs explaining. Stopped short of demanding accountability. Punishing wrongdoers to the full extent of the law. Including CIA, Pentagon and administration officials. Congressional members supporting wrong over right. Federal courts approving indefinite detentions and torture. Official Obama administration policy.
