A Lot of Blood on a Lot of Hands Created the Iran Threat

The mullocracy in Iran is bragging that it has crushed the demonstrations against the regime that broke out on December 28. Regime change from within still remains a forlorn hope, as the theocratic police state has employed its usual brutal violence and intimidation to deny the protestors any momentum. Burning identification cards and electrical bills seem the last recourse for those brave Iranians abandoned by the so-called “global community” that averts its gaze from the destruction of human rights it pretends to worship.

Apple Under Investigation

Late last year, Apple issued an apology for deliberately slowing down old iPhone models through software updates. Many of its customers had suspected this for years, and now legal action has been taken against Apple for its actions. Apple apologized, but said that it slowed down the phones to prolong the life of older phone models with failing batteries. But now, Apple is under investigation in France. It is the third country to investigate Apple following Israel and the U.S., but it is the only country where the alleged offense is a crime.  If found guilty, Apple may have to pay a penalty of up to 5% of their annual turnover, which is huge for a multi-billion-dollar company, and some of its executives may even face jail time.

Poll Shows Growing Public Opposition to NAFTA

An independent public opinion poll published late last year shows growing public awareness of U.S. job loss due to imports, as well as growing public support of the view that NAFTA has been bad for the U.S. The poll was carried out by the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy, surveying 2,745 Americans. The report is entitled: Globalization and Trade, A Study of American Attitudes. The researchers conducting the poll compared the results to similar polls in 2016 and in 1999. The results show a clear trend of greater awareness of the negative consequences of unfettered free trade. [more...]

Wolff at the Door

On the latest edition of REVOLUTION_The Podcast... we examine how the Trump White House has been rocked by the revelations in Michael Wolff's new book, FIRE AND FURY - the disdain his senior staffers have for him; the private doubts they have about his competence; the vicious backbiting and competition among the various factions surrounding him. How does this impact the GOP, the conservative movement and the Mueller Investigation? [more...]
