It is tragic yet amazing to watch the US, the IMF, the MIC and and Zionist Israel practice what the Nazi leader espoused:

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Goebbels also unfolded as living example of the consequences of the utter insensate condition that begins systemic breakdown when entities follow his short-sighted auto-erotic domination methodology. The mind that engages the practice rots from the inside -out giving off devilishly toxic fumes - and the stench has become unbearable.

Increasingly, however, human beings left in the world have been working assiduously and creatively to counter the epidemic.

Neither side seems to be in the right, here. Obviously, Trump’s Zionofascist cheerleading is deplorable, but the position of the Dems has always seem to be quietly let Israel push anybody they want around, build settlements wherever they want, just so long as we on this continent can pretend that there’s yet hope for a two-state solution.Furthermore, the basis of the resolution is that the US be an “honest broker” in the middle east.

Sanders seems to have left out the common phrase “for peace,” perhaps because all hope for peace has been lost.

As for threatening Israel’s Jewish and Democratic identity, it might be the one thing John Kerry ever got right when he said, “Israel can be a theocracy or a democracy, but it can’t be both.” Of course, he said it while walking out the door, so he didn’t have to put any meat behind the statement.

Any other country in the world, if it gives preferential treatment based on religion, it would be denounced for violating human rights. But in this case, either because of the US’s pretense of Judeo-Christian heritage, or because of its economic bonds (binds), to make such a statement with respect to Israel, is of course, called anti-Semitic.

Can’t you at least denounce the plan for annexation on the grounds of what it would do to the actual people who live, and have lived there for how long? Are you so worried about zionofascist political correctness that you can’t even make the right of Muslims to live a central point of your resolution?

2 state solution has been dead for years for anyone with eyes to see, and everyone knows Israel had no intent from the beginning to share even a square meter of territory with the people they stole it from.

Once again, Trump makes bare what was already longstanding US policy: help Israel conquer the whole enchilada slowly but surely.

Palestinians will have no choice but to leave or fight for their survival as a people on their own land. And those odds aren’t especially good.

Endless conflict flashes dollar signs ($$$$$) in Trump and his buddies eyes.

Peace is just another word for nothing left to gain.

Can we please stop seeing that photo of Warren’s face in focus and up-front with Bernie fuzzy behind her? She is not leading the way. She is following his lead and blowing with the wind. She is also very pro-Israel in the negative sense. So stop CD, trying to make her look like a beacon of peace.

Fortunately, our species will be soon joining the 1,000,000 species (IPBES report) salted to go extinct soon; ALL of our problems will then come to an end!

Like the extermination of the Palestinians started yesterday or I just noticed the extermination that has been ongoing since 1948?

War Crimes…Right.
People in glass houses…
Can you taste the Hypocrisy?
Let’s not talk about the War Crimes of OTHER heads of state (and countries) before we lock up our own War Criminals! And we have many.

The U.S. has committed war crimes since at least the 19th century, so it is no surprise that its “president”, the Orange Idiot, would continue to support such crimes by an “ally”.

Today is the anniversary of Israel’s attack on the U.S.S. Liberty on June 8, 1967, a naked attempt to blame Egypt via a false flag attack and drag the U.S. into the Six-Day War of aggression started by Israel. U.S. President LBJ treasonously ordered U.S. naval forces in the Mediterranean Sea NOT to go to the aid of the Liberty. LBJ escaped prosecution for his treason and Israel continued to be counted as a U.S. “ally”.

A good resolution by Congress, being proactive to stop the illegal actions of the other branch of government. To try to rein in the POTUS that pardons war criminals before they even go to jail.

Maybe Trump is dual citizen like so many Jewish folks in government are? Seems like he has done more for Israel than the average president…

So why do we get a big giant picture of Easy Peasy Warren when the article is more about Bernie and Merkley?

Instead we get Bernie all hazy in the background, like he’s following Easy Peasy’s lead on this.

I’m getting sick of this promotion to advance Easy Peasy Warren so Biden can get the nomination by stopping Bernie from getting enough progressive votes to win on the first ballot.

Boycott Easy Peasy Warren.

People,“rund um die Welt” see Zionism as the Ed Koch definition of Zionism. That is, Israel has a right to survive…

You should have written the article without Warren’s or Sander’s faces. They don’t say what they mean. They are for giving Israel endless needless economic & military aid even if they disapprove of settlements in the Occupied Territories. They say Israel has the right to defend itself & want a 2-State Solution but won’t say Israel causes violence against its people by building those settlements. They never say Israel’s neighbors should have the right to defend themselves even if it means defending themselves from Israel, the USA, UK, France or any other nation.

Aided and abetted by US occupying israeli wankers. Only now the occupation is more socially and politically acceptable as not to be news worthy in our occupied country. But not lost in the UK press:

I suggest that Israel annex all the occupied territories and give equal civil rights to all of its new citizens…oops, that is the one-state solution.

Israel is only concerned with the approval and disapproval of the USA. Until it suffers actual consequences from others such as the EU from the imposition of economic sanctions of BDS, there will be no change in Israel’s repudiation of any meaningful negotiations.

blah and blah and blah
Nothing will change

I notice Chuckles Schumer isn’t standing front and center against the annexation. Senator AIPAC is all in for anything that Israel wants.

While I agree with the sentiment and, if your moniker is a tell, also think Tulsi is our best bet for stopping the MIC, the “dual citizen” congress critter is a myth even if a lot of them (Chuck Schumer) seem to put the interest of Israel ahead of the USA. Tulsi 2020! I would vote for Tulsi and, though it would make my eyes bleed, perhaps Sanders or Gillibrand (based on women’s issues), but if anyone else gets the nomination then I’ll choose between the Socialist Equality or Green Party candidate. Ms “I Am A Capitalist” Warren can p*** off.
