Troika Intends Starving Greece Into Submission

Eurozone, ECB and IMF officials’ treatment reveal the latest example of predatory capitalist viciousness. Since Greece’s financial crisis erupted in 2009, imposed austerity diktats incrementally transferred its wealth, assets and enterprises to Western interests at the expense of a 25% GDP drop, mass impoverishment and unemployment (60% for youths), elimination of vital public services, and a brain drain of its best and brightest. SYRIZA Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras promised ...Read full article...

Europe’s Complicity in Evil

There is a widespread supposition that Obama, being black and a member of an oppressed race, will imbue US foreign policy with a higher morality than the world experienced from Bush and Clinton. This is a delusion. Obama represents the same ideology of American “exceptionalism” as other re- cent presidents. This ideology designates the United States as The Virtuous Nation and supplies the basis for the belief that America ...Read full article...

Plans for Destroying Greece Stall

Monied interests want Greece destroyed – trapped in endless debt peonage. Industry groups said nearly 60 Greek companies shut down daily since January 1 – costing over 600 jobs and 22 million euros in GDP every 24 hours. EU officials complicit with the IMF and ECB (the so-called Troika) want Greek enterprises and assets handed to Western corporate predators at fire sale prices and its citizenry reduced to impoverished ...Read full article...

French Spying Double Standard

No one likes to be the subject of surveillance, but the fact is that we all are. But France is a special case, as was Germany a few months ago. Neither of these two Eurpean countries enjoys being sjnooped on by the NSA, but they do exercise their own power to spy with unlimited might on their own citizens. After leaked documents revealed that the United States had spied ...Read full article...

Tsipras totally caved in to the Troika

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, has offered new concessions to creditors in pensions and increases in VAT, two of their red lines he had still to yield on to achieve an agreement that would unblock the next financial rescue of the banks and avoid default. Specifically, the Government of Syriza accepts delaying the retirement age to 67 years and to penalize early retirement. It also increases social contributions, as ...Read full article...

Russia to Counter US Eastern European Buildup

A previous article discussed ongoing US anti-Russian provocations – including plans for troop deployments and heavy weapons positioned near its borders. Reuters reported US Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James calling Russia “the biggest threat” on her mind – when none whatever exists. The Air Force may further increase its rotational forces in Europe, she said. What’s likely is just “the beginning. There will be more” to come. “We ...Read full article...

America’s Military Conquest of Europe

The Pentagon is ready to send heavy weapons at bases in the region to Russia’s expansionist threat The conflict between Ukraine and Russia, the Crimean decision to become part of Russia and the intervention of NATO in global affairs seem to be the keys for Washington to return to its old ways: military deterrence. The Department of Defense of the United States is prepared to send heavy weaponry to ...Read full article...

The EU is teetering as more Europeans Reject Brussels’ Rule

The erosion of European unity is not new and is not only coming from the possibility that the UK exits or that Greece collapses, but of a generalized societal rejection from the average European who feels increasingly detached from the EU failed project. The so-called Grexit and its companion Brexit will undoubtedly result in the weakening of the Union, which not too long ago only sought to expand. The ...Read full article...

Greece to join Russia’s Turkish Stream Pipeline Project

Plans call for it to supply natural gas from Russia through Turkey, Greece, Macedonia, Serbia and Hungary – bypassing Ukraine. Moscow’s original South Stream project was scheduled to transit through Bulgaria. US-manipulated destabilization blocked it. Washington tried the same stunt in Macedonia – attempted color revolution destabilization to replace its government with one it favors – so far with no success. It pressured Greece to stick with a Western-backed ...Read full article...

Ukraine: A Cancer in Europe’s Heartland

Ukraine is an example of what happens when lunatics run the asylum. The country is a US-installed Nazi-infested fascist police state headed by an illegitimate anointed oligarch mega-crook. It tolerates no opposition. Free expression is banned. Independent journalists risk harassment, assault, arrest, imprisonment, even death. Ukraine is a dagger pointed at Russia’s heartland. It’s bankrupt. It’s perhaps headed toward defaulting on its debt. It declared a moratorium on repayments, ...Read full article...

Ukraine’s Latest Big Lie

Ukraine’s regime is a US-installed Nazi-infested fascist police state. Rogue states have no credibility whatever. Ukraine’s regime is a US-installed Nazi-infested fascist police state. It’s a serial lying machine. US-anointed illegitimate oligarch president Poroshenko ludicrously claimed Russia has 11,000 troops in Ukraine – during an interview on German ZDF television. “Today we can see that, despite the signed Minsk agreement, the number of Russian weapons and Russian troops on ...Read full article...

Brussels imposes illegal immigration quotas on Member-States

Powerful European technocrats will continue bombing Africa and the Middle East while mandating that member-States welcome war refugees. No one likes having uninvited guests in their house, especially when someone else is dictating that you must have them over for an indefinite time. In Europe, however, that is exactly what the unelected technocrats are demanding member-States do. The response that European leaders have given to the drama of massive ...Read full article...

Press Freedom Banned in Ukraine

Ukraine is a US-installed Nazi-infested fascist police state. Press freedom is banned. Criticizing government policy risks arrest, torture, imprisonment or death. Last year, independent journalist/RT International stringer Graham Phillips received death threats. Right Sector thugs put a $10,000 bounty on his head. He was maliciously called a Russian spy. He was arrested, held incommunicado. Later freed, he’s lucky to be alive. So are Russian journalists Oleg Sidyankin and Marat ...Read full article...

France nears approval of Surveillance State measures

Installing tracking devices in cars, bugging of private places or, if deemed necessary, the entry into homes, will also be allowed with an administrative authorization, without intervention of judges. The French National Assembly will vote on Tuesday on the controversial law that would allow wiretapping and cyber spying on any ‘suspicious citizen’ without judicial control. The law, whose justification was “fears of new attacks in France”, would legalize the ...Read full article...
