There was almost no coverage in the national media of the historic July 25 vote in the House to restore the Constitution regarding war powers, HCR 105. The most despicable was Reuters, which simply lied that "it was a largely symbolic vote. To be enacted, the measure would require backing by the U.S. Senate, which is not expected, and even then it would not have the force of law."
With the newly released Financial Action Task Force (FATF, OECD, Paris) report, Financial Flows Linked to the Production and Trafficking of Afghan Opiates, forceful Russian pressure on counternarcotics and financial system complicity in money laundering has now put a challenge on the table for the U.S. and Western Europe.
Marie Harf, the State Department's deputy spokeswoman, is not getting as much respect from the press corps as she might think she deserves, especially over the past two days (July 24 and 25) when she asserted that Russia is shooting across the border into Ukraine and is preparing to provide heavy artillery to the separatist forces.
Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), along with some other senators, is looking to a provision in the original resolution that established the Senate Intelligence Committee in 1976, that might allow the committee to release its report on CIA torture under its own authority, if the White House doesn't move faster to get it out publicly. Apparently, he has been contemplating such a move since last October.
American statesman Lyndon LaRouche today ridiculed Barack Obama for "just sitting back there like a dumb louse and taking the blows that are administered to him without response," after the stunning defeat he suffered at the hands of a bi-partisan coalition of Congressmen who overwhelmingly approved House Concurrent Resolution 105 on July 25.
Reporter Glenn Greenwald just published an article based on a hitherto-unreleased NSA memo provided by Ed Snowden, which shows that in 2011 and 2012, the NSA entered into a closer partnership with the torturers of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's Ministry of the Interior.
Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) told RIA Novosti in an interview on July 24, that some "decision makers" are hyping up the hysteria around the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 disaster in eastern Ukraine to stoke Americans' fear of Russia and increase US military power, rather than forge an understanding of the disaster.
One hundred, sixteen Democratic Representatives, many of them veterans, wrote to (Democratic) Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and (Republican) House Speaker John Boehner on Friday, July 25, to insist that neither the Senate nor the House can leave for August recess unless and until a veterans' healthcare act has been passed through a House-Senate conference committee and voted up in both houses.
