Trump’s Iran policy disastrous, doomed to fail

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor, for Press TV Wendy Sherman is a professor at Harvard University. She’s the former Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs under Obama and worked on the 2015 JCPOA nuclear deal with Iran. And now she is out with a new article in Foreign Policy magazine. Its headline is the “Total Destruction of US Foreign Policy under Trump.” Well, that’s an interesting title. I think US foreign policy has been heading in a lot of bad directions for a long time, but she makes some good points. She points out that the Trump administration hasn’t…

Chickenhawks Trump, Bolton, Netanyahu terrified of Iran

“So what are we to make of these two evil clowns, with Trump being mostly clown, and Netanyahu being mostly evil?” By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor, interviewed by Press TV John Bolton has leaked the manuscript of his new unapproved book about his experiences in the Trump administration. And of course, the top headlines are that Bolton is confirming all these other reports that Trump is incompetent. And also, I think Bolton is echoing earlier reports that the hawkish side of the national security deep state doesn’t find Trump a very good leader, because Trump is not reliable, and his…

US bankers stole $7 trillion during COVID-19 lockdown, destroyed small businesses

By Kevin Barrett, for Press TV Donald Trump has a way of saying a lot of crazy and incoherent things. And he’s such a ‘genius’ at it that people (like comedian Sarah Cooper) can parody him pretty much by just playing a tape of what he says. And recently, the most recent example of this is his quite amazing statement that the concept of chokeholds sounds ‘so innocent, so perfect.’ That is a very strange statement. It sounds like something that an insane murderer would say after he’s been arrested for choking hundreds of people to death. They finally got…

John Hankey: US Military Made Coronavirus & Vaccine, Trump Was Vaccinated in November

Listen HERE Researcher and filmmaker John Hankey comments on topics addressed in the recent webinar: Covid-19–A New 9/11 Style False Flag? Was Covid-19 made in a lab? Is it a bioweapon? Who made it?

Dissociated Press Stung by criticism that his administration hasn’t done enough to help rebuild America’s inner cities, President Trump yesterday unveiled a bold new infrastructure plan for government-sponsored distribution of thousands of pallet loads of free bricks in America’s hardest-hit urban neighborhoods. “Wherever people protest, we are pre-empting their demands by giving them lots of free bricks to build things with,” Trump announced from a corner of the White House lawn freshly cleared by tear gas and rubber bullets. Trump explained that he had made a deal with the CointelBro Brick Company, owned by Jared Kushner’s cousin “Joizy Dave” Brickowitz, to…

Two Cheers for Trump! Religion IS Essential, Social Media MUST BE Content Neutral! (Updated with Trump’s announcement of executive order to fight online censorship)

by Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor As the token “radical Muslim” here at VT I have a certain license to express a point of view that is not 100% kosher certified by the editorial board. So I’m going to join the minority-of-one here, Robert David Steele, and say something nice about Donald Trump. After mercilessly mocking and deriding Trump for almost four years, I am now shocked to find myself cheering for him. Well, not for him personally, but for two of his recent outrages: reopening houses of worship, and ordering an investigation (and hopefully a revocation) of the law granting…

Trump presiding over low-grade simmering World War lll on behalf of neocons

US President Donald Trump is presiding over what amounts to a kind of low-grade simmering World War lll on several fronts, not just with Iran, but also with China on behalf of neoconservatives,  an American scholar has said. During a White House press briefing on the COVID-19 pandemic on April 20, 2020, Trump confessed to the stupidity of US policy in the Middle East. Referring to trillions of dollars spent on America’s never-ending wars, Trump asked, “How stupid have we been?” Yet two days later, he ordered the US Navy to “shoot down and destroy” Iranian gunboats allegedly harassing US…

And that’s the way it’s got to be.” Trump’s assertion—that the powers of the US president are absolute—took Constitutional scholars…
