Will Trump Withdraw from NATO?

Will Trump Withdraw from NATO? by Stephen Lendman It’s no more likely than the sun henceforth rising in the west once he’s inaugurated. Though calling NATO “obsolete” and “costing us a fortune,” he said “I don’t want to pull (America) out,” adding “I think the distribution of costs has to be changed.” “We’re paying disproportionately....

Trump Picks General Michael Flynn As National Security Advisor

Trump Picks General Michael Flynn As National Security Advisor by Stephen Lendman Media reports indicated Trump chose him. It’s unclear if he accepted.

NYT Suggests Trump May Treat Muslims Like FDR Persecuted Japanese Americans During WW II

NYT Suggests Trump May Treat Muslims Like FDR Persecuted Japanese Americans During WW II by Stephen Lendman Ten days post-election, NYT Trump bashing persists.

Could Sanders Have Beaten Trump?

Could Sanders Have Beaten Trump? by Stephen Lendman We’ll never know despite lots of guesswork suggesting it.

Criticizing Stephen Bannon Appointment Continues Trump Bashing

Criticizing Stephen Bannon’s Appointment Continues Trump Bashing by Stephen Lendman Rewarded for aiding Trump’s electoral triumph, Bannon was named chief administration strategist and senior counselor.

Despicable State Department Russia Bashing

Disgraceful WaPo Anti-Putin Editorial

Disgraceful WaPo Anti-Putin Editorial by Stephen Lendman Russian and Syrian forces are valiantly combating US-supported terrorists, aiming to free the country from its scourge.
