There is an unspoken, yet very clear, bond between Hollywood and the US government that overtly supports US foreign policy. The movie industry in Hollywood has been active in hiding US war crimes and sanitizing the US military campaigns in NATO-garrisoned Afghanistan, Anglo-American occupied Iraq, and elsewhere in the world. Moreover, the dominance of Hollywood as a tool of cultural imperialism in Europe and the rest of the world make Hollywood films an excellent tool for getting Washington’s ideas out internationally and sedating global audiences with misleading narratives.
Hollywood as a Tool of Cultural Imperialism and Perception Management
Aside from news media outlets, it should come as no surprise that most the ideas and notions that the general public in the US and elsewhere have about wars come from movies, television sets, radio programs, video games, and the entertainment industry.

Researchers from Harvard and MIT claim to have discovered the mechanism by which a specific gene variant increases the risk of obesity in a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

A leading Black Lives Matter activist has defended the threatening chants leveled at police at a protest rally, just hours before three police officers were gunned down in cold blood.
Trahern Crews told MSNBC viewers that the chants of “Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon” at a Minnesota protest were intended as “more playful than anything.” Crews also claimed that police wanted to join in the march.
“I want to put that chant in context.” said Crews. “We had a great demonstration that day. It was very exciting. It was so exciting that I think the police who were along escorting the marcher[s] wanted to be a part of the march, or a part of the demonstration.”

Amgen is launching its injectable cholesterol drug in Europe at around half the U.S. price, in a move likely to stoke controversy about the way Americans end up paying far more than others for new medicines.

Japan And The Global Meltdown
Japan Joins The Fray – As noted above, Japan was a key factor in Tuesday’s global meltdown. To avoid reinventing the wheel, I’ll let my friend and fellow market veteran, Jim Brown, over at the insightful Option Investor tell the tale. Here’s a bit of what Jim wrote on the topic:
The overnight sell off was started by news out of Japan. Capital spending by Japanese companies fell – 1.8% in Q2. This reflects a slowdown in demand because of the first sales tax increase in 17 years. Corporate revenue and profits also fell an estimated -3.2% as the economy continued to deteriorate.
