Bulwark

It is funny how the people who are supposed to be the beneficiaries of Western 'human rights' consideration are the only ones who pay for the interference, and the ones who get paid are the 'human rights' grifters:  "Xinjiang shakedown: US anti-China lobby cashed in on ‘forced labor’ campaign that cost Uyghur workers their jobs" (Blumenthal).

"Ukrainian ultranationalist lobby flaunts influence over Biden, blocks top Russia expert’s appointment" (Robeson).  The old 'anti-communists' who had such an influence on Reagan went underground when they were recognized, but they never really went away.

"For The First Time Ever, Russia Drops Under 50% Of Exports Sold In US Dollars" (South Front).

"The Guardian’s Anti-Russian Vax Propaganda Plunges to New Depths" (Robinson).  I wish we could get the Sputnik vaccine in Canada rather than the deadly poisons the crooked politicians have decided are the only choice.

Serial criminality to an almost comedic level:  "Experian doxes the world (again)" (Doctorow).

"Things I Wish I Did Before Being Raided by the Police" (Towler).

"Central Asia: Another Turkish Proxy War in the Offing?" (Rozoff).

"They Lie and Then They Lie Some More" (Butler).  On the assassination plot against Lukashenko.  To be fair, we can hardly expect them to admit it!

"The Russia-China Alliance: More than a Bulwark Against Imperialism" (Haiphong):

"The U.S. ruling class and its allies want as many people living within their borders as possible to feel superior to the rest of the world. The police murders of George Floyd, Daunte Wright and Ma’Khia Bryant, the plight of political prisoners like Mumia Abu-Jamal , and the ongoing violence toward Asian Americans can therefore be viewed from the lens of American innocence—mere stains that are washed away in our historical memories with the help of National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan’s “Secret Sauce” of continuous improvement. The reality is, of course, much different. The world is on a move, and our collective futures depend on the capacity of U.S.-based movements to link struggles against racism and repression at home to the global struggle against imperialism abroad. China and Russia’s alliance will continue to grow as the world bids farewell to whatever stability existed under the U.S. and European models of imperialism.

This farewell process will be a painful one, and the people of the so-called “mother countries” of imperialism sit on the sidelines at their own peril. U.S. imperialism has constructed its entire strategy to maintain hegemony around the containment and overthrow of China and Russia. This means that the human need for healthcare, housing, economic security, and a world free from racism, war, and environmental destruction are off the political table. Furthermore, any movement for self-determination and liberation that ignores or opposes the world struggle against imperialism will escape victory; that is, if victory can even be defined under such an orientation. It is time for those in the belly of the beast to understand that the world struggle against imperialism has reached another monumental stage in its history, and that the alliance between China and Russia is leading the way."
