Stephen Lendman: CNN and other scoundrel media vilify Syria and Iran unjustifiably. At the same time, they suppress horrific atrocities committed by US allies. Bahrain and Saudi Arabia are two of the worst.
Stephen Lendman: Turkey is Washington’s lead anti-Syrian belligerent. It’s playing with fire. It may end up burned. For good reason, Assad blames Ankara for heightened tensions and border confrontations.
Stephen Lendman: Monthly Labor Department (BLS) data report inaccurately. America’s broken jobs engine isn’t explained. The latest 7.8% unemployment rate is blarney. Based on the 1980s calculation model, real unemployment approaches 23%.
Stephen Lendman: VVenezuelans get the real thing. Their electoral process is the best in the world. It’s independently judged open, free and fair. Every vote counts. They’re tabulated fully and honestly.
Stephen Lendman: When Chavez or other Bolivarian candidates win, it’s fair and square. In contrast, US elections have no credibility whatever. Money power runs things. People have no say.
