Headlines for May 25, 2018

This week's broadcast segment on Loud & Clear radio is here.


Anti-Castro militant Posada Carriles is dead at 90

A notorious terrorist, not a “militant”. Even the US considered him a terrorist.

Luis Posada Carriles, Who Waged Quest to Oust Castro, Dies at 90


Worst of all was the BBC:

Luis Posada Carriles: Cuba anti-communist activist dies

A thoroughly disgusting article.


Iran Uses Nuclear Pact as Bargaining Chip With EU Over U.S. Sanctions
Tehran’s suggestion could drive wedge between Washington and Brussels
The wedge was driven by Trump

Fragile: Pentagon report raises alarm that US industry can’t support war for much longer

If only. Washington is facing the risk that “a conflict with China could rely on Chinese-made parts.” Lots of “mights” and “could happens” in the article, but the bottom line, unfortunately, is that what it all leads to is “the military needs more money”.

The Daily 202: The far left is winning the Democratic civil war
Those “far left”ideas? Universal health care, marijuana legalization, universal background checks for buying guns, raising taxes or limiting corporate tax loopholes. Except for raising taxes, all of those are supported by the majority or vast majority of Americans.


Google Removes 'Don't Be Evil' Clause From Its Code of Conduct
Better late than never. On top of its privacy invasions, Google even had a dozen employees quit to protest its involvement in military drone AI programs.

How Kim Jong Un ‘Baited’ Trump Into Canceling The North Korea Summit
Delusional much? Was it Kim who told Pence & Bolton to start citing the “Libyan model”? Did we imagine that North Korea released 3 prisoners and blew up its nuclear test site, and then wrote a letter saying “we’re ready to talk any time any place”?


Pelosi: 'Kim Jong Un is the big winner'

Also “Kim Jong Un 'Must Be Having a Giggle Fit'” and “Trump’s letter to Kim ‘reads like a Valentine’”

North Korea warns of nuclear showdown, calls Pence 'political dummy'


The Latest: After defeat, Venezuela opposition vows to unite

"Venezuela’s two main opposition coalitions are pledging to unify the nation’s fragmented anti-government movement and push for a new election later this year." Too late, guys. Maduro is President for the next six years.

Interior Dept. moves to allow Alaska bear hunting with doughnuts, bacon

So they're going to kill them by giving them heart attacks?
Actually, of course, this is a very serious story (covered by By Any Means Necessary on Thursday):
"The Trump administration is moving to reverse Obama-era rules barring hunters on some public lands in Alaska from baiting brown bears with bacon and doughnuts and using spotlights to shoot mother black bears and cubs hibernating in their dens... hunters would also be allowed to hunt black bears with dogs, kill wolves and pups in their dens, and use motor boats to shoot swimming caribou."
