Berlin calls for retaliation against ‘illegal’ US sanctions on Russia

from RT

New penalties against Moscow proposed by US lawmakers violate international law and officials in Brussels should consider countermeasures, the German economy minister said on Monday.

“We consider this as being against international law, plain and simple,” Brigitte Zypries told the Funke Mediengruppe newspaper chain.

“Of course we don’t want a trade war. But it is important the European Commission now looks into countermeasures,” she added.

According to the minister, “the Americans can not punish German companies because they operate economically in another country.”..

McKinney Knows #UNRIG is All About Electing Trump in 2020

A sad day for real progressives in America when Cynthia McKinney squirms like this to support RDS’ effort to use her to “deliver 50% of the black vote to Trump 2020”

Cynthia says she will get off the bridge once it’s clear to her something else is going on with RDS which is CERTAINLY not an endorsement of the man.

But my point is… if he’s ALREADY SAID TWICE the whole thing is about ginning up political support for Trump and his neoliberal domestic agenda with the minority vote, why isn’t that enough for her already?

And yes, in this interview she mentioned she can’t get a job in the US because of her honesty while serving in congress and afterward. So what is she looking for? A paycheck while she campaigns until 2020? A job in the Trump White House right alongside all those Goldman Sachs executives?

My Thoughts on Caitlin Johnstone, Jamarl Thomas and the Alt-Right Co-opting the Real Left

UPDATE: Caitlin plays the rape card trying to defend herself from Eric Draitser and other CounterPunch writers who pretty much agree with what I say in the video, that she is either “purposely peddling red-brown fascist garbage in service to far right elements, or if she’s just hopelessly naïve about the political realities of such strategies

You know who is interested in the core ideas that make the Left? At least 100 million apolitical, demoralized working people who don’t have time for politics as they struggle to ensure their families’ survival.

There is your fertile organizing ground! Not the white supremacist purveyors of rape culture such as Mike Cernovich, who Johnstone apparently feels is some sort of right wing John Brown, ready to lay kindling for the white man’s revolution. Apparently, Johnstone has acknowledged that she is a rape survivor – I commend her for stating it openly, without shame – which somehow seems to excuse her promotion of a misogynist, fascist provocateur.” Eric Draitser

This is the ultimate point of my video. The more a nation becomes neoliberalized, the more the working people come to understand and agree with the core principles of the left. RDS knows it. So does Cernovich and folks like Di$info Jone$. They know it, they fear it. So her and seemingly many other so-called “left leaning” activists out there calling for us to “grow up” and join ranks with fascists like Cernovich and Di$info Jone$ and RDS right now before that happens is either pitifully naive of them… or…
