On the anniversary of MLK Jr.'s death I cite is comment as the US being the world's greatest violence purveyor and how the media and the schools have sanitized his story and follow that with Smedley Butler being a racketeer for capitalism.

I then mention again the secret intel agreement reached between Israel and the US on Dec. 12 targeting Iran that still is censored by the US media and the implications that the appointments of Bolton and Pompeo replacing McMaster and Tillerson make the prospect of a war on Iran likelier than ever. I note that Bolton was Adelson's suggestion and that both men have publicly advocated bombing Iran, Adelson with nuclear weapons.

I also repeat Adelson's statement to Israeli Jews apologizing for having worn the uniform of the US army and not that of the IDF and suggest that while making that statement and You Tube of him saying it would turn vets, active duty military and their families who voted for Trump into the Democrats taking both House and Senate, the Democrats would prefer risking a devastating war for Israel than possibly provoking a wave of antisemitism that might follow the revelations of Adelson's first loyalty being to Israel.

I then take NPR to task, first with Scott Simon's allowing Jonathan Arkush, the leader of the Jewish Board of Deputies to slander Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters as well as Ken Livingstone, without providing a rebuttal from the Corbyn side and to outright lie about a controversial mural which the British Jewish establishment claims to be antisemitic which I correct, as well as present proof to back up Livingstone's statement that Hitler was, in fact, an early supporter of Zionism, that caused him to be booted from the Labour Party.

I then cite FAIR's critique of NPR's pro-Israel slant on the massacre on the Gaza after quoting from an IDF tweet that confirms the Israel assault was a war crime.
