Bill Hagerty is a U.S. Republican senator from Tennessee and former U.S. ambassador to Japan.

He's also a loyal Trumpite who believes the 2020 election was stolen.

Straya, one of the finest shows of true democracy in the world.

Really? Voters have a choice of two parties with exactly the same economic policy (socialism for the rich and capitalism for the rest) plus a foreign policy dictated by Washington neo-cons. The only times Australians voted for non-USA compliant leaders both were regime-changed by Washington leaning on London.

You yourself have admitted to being an adherent, right?

There's a few on here, but none will admit to it now, of course. If I remember rightly it's the same people who believe Jessica Arden is a "left wing Marxist."

Posted in: UK raises stakes in EU feud with threat to break Brexit deal See in context

Under the serial liar Johnson the UK has proved itself to be an entirely untrustworthy partner, prepared to break treaties and agreements at the drop of a hat. It's word is mud. Any government with the clueless ninny Liz Truss as part of it has zero credibility.

“Respect for the rule of law ... runs deep in our Tory veins,” Conservative legislator Simon Hoare said.

So who was just arrested on suspicion of of indecent assault, sexual assault, rape, abuse of a position of trust, and misconduct in a public office? Wasn't one of those "law respecting Tory MPs" by any chance, was it?

What the mainstream media won't tell you and will refuse to discuss is that the perpetrator had the Black Sun emblem. Now what is the Black Sun emblem, you may well ask. All I can say to America is that if you play with fire, expect to get burnt.

May the victims rest in peace.

Al Qaeda, ISIS, Ukraine neo-Nazis, they just never learn. RIP to the victims.

The aid will be co-financed with the World Bank /The loan is aimed at "fostering de-monopolization and anti-corruption institutions, strengthening land and credit markets, 

The World Bank has a long history of using these 'loans' to further the interests of Western financial oligarchs.

Ukraine is on the disaster capitalism table.

The World Bank and the IMF are two of the props that support American control of the global financial system. Ukraine is now an American debt slave in perpetuity.

As the US continues to assist Ukraine, will there be more of these white nationalist attacks?

Probably. In 2013 a Ukrainian neo-Nazi who'd been in the UK for just five days murdered an 83 year old man and bombed three mosques in Birmingham.

"During his police interviews, the Ukrainian student made no secret of his motive. "Racism," he said. "I would like to increase racial conflict because they are not white and I am white."

The software engineer had only been in the UK for five days when he stabbed to death Mohammed Saleem on the streets of Small Heath in Birmingham. He went on to launch three bomb attacks on mosques - and detectives believe he would have done it again had he not been discovered."

Wildly exciting games in marked contrast to the rather turgid affair at Wembley on Saturday. Liverpool must beat Southampton tomorrow night to take the title race to the last day, while any one of Everton, Leeds or Burnley could still go down. My money would be on Leeds, but who knows.

The drip, drip, drip of manufactured consent for war with China continues.

Keep them guessing.

Sato himself announced the deployment of Japanese and US intermediate-range missiles in Hokkaido in a recent speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. The CSIS is one of the nastiest and spookiest far-right think-tanks in the US, notorious for its role in the coup against Allende in Chile.

Posted in: Quad eyes highlighting respect for sovereignty See in context

Respect for sovereignty? That's why ASEAN was summoned to USA a few days back? Most went just out of respect, but we all know ASEAN is fully aware of USA's tactics to use other countries. And most Latin American countries are NOT going to go to this Americas meeting in USA. Probably only Canada. Even Bolsonaro's Brazil is tired of USA's games and boycotting the meeting. All showing solidarity with Cuba, under decades of US-imposed sanctions. Ah, respect for sovereignty again. USA, wanting to have its cake AND eat it.

Neither ASEAN nor the Latin American countries are remotely interested in the US's increasingly coercive and aggressive "diplomacy". The Asian countries just want to trade in peace while the South Americans have suffered through over 200 years of vicious imperialism from the north, and they've had enough.

It's all gone very quiet about the supposed capture by the DPR forces of high-ranking foreign military in Azovstal, foreign mercenaries in other areas and two Russian-speaking British SAS chaps, who were busted somewhere they shouldn't have been. The rumours were that they were being taken to Moscow for trial, but seem to have faded recently....

Let's dont discriminate with financial entities and oligarchs that are harming millions worldwide.

Nationalize their assets with extreme prejudice.

Sadly, things are moving in exactly the opposite direction. The British government is now trying to ban the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign in the UK, part of an outrageous attempt to restrict the right to protest and erode human rights.

Another excellent performance from Spurs, Conte has exceeded all expectations in a relatively short time. Arsenal shot themselves in the foot though, conceding a soft penalty and Holding's rash elbow got him sent off. All still to play for, maybe Spurs can pinch fourth with the momentum they're building.

Posted in: Billions spent on overseas counterterrorism would be better spent by involving ex-terrorists See in context

The United States, meanwhile, has spent approximately $91.4 billion on foreign aid to Afghanistan since 2001, while other countries gave billions more. Most of this money went toward Afghanistan’s military.

And there's the crux of the matter: for the Washington neo-cons and the military-industrial complex these endless wars are highly profitable and don't overly endanger American lives. Tax money is sent in the form of foreign aid, which is then returned to the US arms manufacturers who supply the government in question. It's a tax on working Americans, who are funding these wars. The money spigots in Iraq and Afghanistan were switched off, hence the latest endless war we're seeing in Ukraine now, funded by a lend-lease programme.

Posted in: Musk says he would reverse Twitter's ban of Donald Trump See in context

He fired numerous officials on Twitter and his posts, like his speeches at rallies, were a torrent of misinformation.

Any reader of mainstream Western media is subject to a "torrent of misinformation" every day, Twitter is no exception. Anti-war and independent media outlets are being kicked off Twitter and having their Paypal accounts seized or frozen simply for performing their tasks as journalists, while real Nazis are allowed to freely post whatever misinformation they like.

Ideally, Germany and Japan would take leading roles in the defense of democracies in Europe and Asia.

Japan's a democracy in name only. There are elections but the LDP always wins, the grandchildren of imperialist monsters are in power and the foreign policy is controlled by the US State Department. Look what happened to Ozawa and Hatoyama when they tried a tripartite rapprochement with China and Korea.
