The UN and corporate media have for years claimed only 10,000 Yemenis were killed in the US-Saudi war. But Yemen’s actual death toll is 70,000 to 80,000. Patrick Cockburn speaks about the whitewashing of the catastrophic war.

 

Catastrophic death toll of US-Saudi war on Yemen has been grossly downplayed

Politicians Who Complain About Trump’s Authoritarian Tendencies Just Gave Him 6 Years To Warrantlessly Spy On Americans

Over on the Senate side, things were even more ridiculous. Senator Jeff Flake voted for cloture, helping to end (the already non-existing) debate on such surveillance, and blocking any amendments. And then, the very next morning, went on the Senate floor to slam the President, compare him to Stalin, and warn that our democracy may not survive. Again, this was mere hours after Senator Flake voted to give more surveillance powers to the President he was about to compare to Stalin.

Or how about Dianne Feinstein? It may be no surprise that Feinstein voted to continue and expand surveillance — she has a long history of doing exactly that. But just about an hour before voting for cloture, Feinstein herself introduced an amendment that would have required a warrant to search the corpus of data collected under 702. And then she voted to block that amendment from even being voted on.

…Trump has been loudly denouncing McCaskill for months as she’s facing a tough reelection campaign. And her response was to deny any further debate or amendments and to vote to give Trump more surveillance powers.

…These are not the only ones.

How you vote defines who you are and what you stand for.

There’s a reason Hillary Clinton’s tagline is “I’m with her.”

I am most certainly NOT.
