Abby Martin breaks down all the hidden acts of US foreign policy aggression under the cover of the COVID19 pandemic.


Abbey martin shows an alternative look at how the u.s. is using the pandemic for more war and agendas. Politicians say we all need to come together but then take advantage of the covid-19 situation.

You may disagree with the angle this video is taking, but it is far better than anything like fox or cnn which only seeks to criticize the left or right, and not the u.s. as a whole.

Can you post what the instances are for those who can't watch the video? I plan to later when I can, but I'm sure some would like to read them anyways.

I like Abby Martin. I've listened to her on Joe Rogan, and haven't seen much of her work outside that. But I like to hear all viewpoints. I don't agree with her on everything, but she has conviction and seems like a smart lady.

It's a critical take on the actions the u.s. has taken towards china, somalia, Venezuela and other countries during the pandemic.

I can't post a detailed description right now. Sorry for the half-arsed thread.

U.S. Empire ? What's that then?

Can't find a U.S. Empire on this list.

www.businessinsider.com...

Or this list.

www.smashinglists.com...

Or this one.

There must be reasons why the U.S. does this stuff. Some sort of threats to the world or something. Stuff is not just black and white.

No empire has ever gotten as large or powerful as the US. It's in a league of it's own, it doesn't fit the classic criteria that historians give empire status too. If the USSR is considered an empire, so is the US, especially since it has military presence basically all over the world and has the capability to ruin almost any nation economically with sanctions. It most definitely is an empire, and it's a dying one as well.

I normally never reply on anything this one sided, but it is. This is a hit piece that is conflating many world issues. This is not worth bringing people's attention to.

Who is Abby Martin ?
What are their qualifications ?
Why should I care ?

(As seen on YouTube so it has to be the truth)

She has always been a fringe journalist that covers topics mainstream doesn't. Many find her unsavory, mainly because of her 9/11 truther past and the fact shes been working for RT for some time.

I don't mind listening to her from time to time, don't agree with a lot but she's interesting.

I see people using the same caliber of source on here all the time, and usually there are only complaints when it doesn't fit someones narrative.

That said, this is a conspiracy site, and she's covered that sort of thing for a while... So she's kind of the flavor you'd expect to find here. But now a days, everyone is more interested in this being a MSM aggregator, the threads typically mirror the MSM talking points.

He's been good so far about not starting new ones. But we haven't ended any either, and as it stands we have two of the longest wars in our nation's history...

Between post 9/11 wars, the 08' bailout, and COVID which is trending to be more than all those combines, we're not looking too hot.

Each president has allowed debt to compond at an alarming rate.

She hosted Breaking the Set on the Russian network RT America from 2012 to 2015. In 2015, Martin launched the investigative documentary and interview series The Empire Files, originally hosted by Telesur.

She received an undergraduate degree in political science from Diego State university.

I admire her for her independent takes on things that you rarely see from any MSM source. She does put her opinion into videos, but it's not just opinions and it's better than anything on fox or cnn.

Indefinite stay in iraq. Increased casualties in drone strikes. Canceling the drone strike casuality report. Getting out of the iran deal , increasing sancations, and causing more tension.

You don't need to start a war to be criticized....

So end of discussion?

I prefer fiscal responsibility.... Something we haven't seen in a very long time. I'll criticize anything that doesn't resemble an attempt at such.

Sure, if you believe the u.s. only does things for the good of humanity. Blowing civilians up and taking advantage of covid19 all for the betterment of humanity!

I don't see any pertinent qualifications there.
And , exactly zilch on why I should care.
