text The Criminality of the Elites by Fabio De Masi and Laura Wiesboeck
The offenses of the upper class are hardly publicized. The little are hung while the big can run.

Across the entire NeoLiberal "free world," the feverish anti-T-rump crusade has recently reached a crescendo. Not that the toxic T-rump doesn't deserve the multi-pronged attack on his dystopian swamp of Neanderthal Robber Barons and Bolton-esque warmongers.

text RussiaGate is a sophisticated Shell Game by DLi
The current U.S. corporate media's hysteria over the "RussiaGate" affair is the outcome of a highly sophisticated Shell Game launched by the deepest bowels of the USA Imperial ruling junta.
