I begin by pointing out the fact that the US has not experienced war as being a problem for the rest of the planet since today's Americans are indifferent to what the US does to other peoples. Following 65th anniversary of US backed overthrow of Iranian government, I speak of reimposed sanctions but then go on to latest step in US/Israel regime change plot with appointment of hawk Brian Hook to coordinate economic pressure on Iran which Hook says will hurt its funding of the Houthis, support for Assad and Hezbollah.

I then play a 1:24 clip from talk by Washington Inst. For NE Policy's Patrick Clawson from 2012, acknowledging US covert action against Iran and hinting at desirability of a false flag op.

I go from there to John Bolton's trip to Israel where he is welcomes and revered and his meetings with Pres. Rivlin and Def. Min, Avigodor Liberman who uses possessive “We” to describe Israel's control of the White House, followed by the quote from Netanyahu in 2001 that the US is easy to move around.

I then report on the election victories of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar and how their comments on Israel and Palestine and the reaction to them revealed that in the year of women running and getting elected, some things stay the same.
