Hyping Terrorism, Stoking Fear Following Nice, France Incident

Muslims are convenient scapegoats of choice in America, other Western societies and Israel. Islamophobia rages, boosted by Bastille Day violence in Nice. Western media said lone jihadist lorry driver/gunman Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel singlehandedly mowed down or shot over 200 holiday celebrants in Nice overnight – killing scores, injuring many others, the claim defying credibility. How could one person cause so many casualties before being stopped? Logic suggests more than ...Read full article...

Brussels’ Human Trafficking Scheme

It offers 10,000 euros for each refugee hosted by a European State. The European Commission wants to make it obligatory that European member-States receive refugees from countries outside the EU. It proposes a common scheme which will have an economic ‘incentive’ of 10,000 euros for each asylum seeker to resettle in EU countries. “The exact number of resettlers will be fixed by the European Council as supposed to each ...Read full article...

Britain’s Iron Lady 2.0?

Described by a former associate as “hard as nails,” perhaps Theresa May is the second “iron lady of the Western World” designate, what former prime minister Margaret Thatcher once called herself. Separately, she defiantly said “(t)o those waiting with bated breath for that favorite media catchphrase, the ‘U’ turn, I have only one thing to say. You turn if you want to. The lady’s not for turning.” On Monday, ...Read full article...

War Criminals Roam Free after Killing Millions

When will war criminals like George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Tony Blair and Hillary Clinton be held accountable for their crimes? Sorrow and regret do not make war crimes go away, but resorting to illegal means to carry them out do make them punishable. The Chilcot report, which was made public on Wednesday, details the UK involvement in the Iraq war and the role played by accomplices Tony Blair and ...Read full article...

France Embraces “Governing” by Decree

For the fourth time in this legislature, the French government annulled the parliamentary vote and used a decree to push through labor-related reform. It is the fourth time that the French Executive shows its weakness and lack of desire to govern as it is supposed to do. Instead, the French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls has rammed through legislation that did not have the support he wanted in Parliament as ...Read full article...

The British Revolt to the EU Establishment

Is Brexit just about nationalism and independence, or is it also about a multipolar world? It really meant nothing to the British that their government, the opposition, trade unions, bankers, the IMF and even Barack Obama himself warned them that a vote for Brexit equaled suicide. The more confidence was shown by the supporters of remaining in the EU, the more distrust grew in the Brexit camp. Although pro-Brexit voters ...Read full article...

Spain taps into Reserves to pay for Social Security Obligations

Reserves will disappear in 2017 if no solution is found to the deficit. The government of Spain had to resort to its reserves to pay for Social Security and pensions for the month of July. It had to take 8,7 billion euros from the Reserve Fund, the largest one-time withdrawal to date. Following this transaction,  there are only 25,17 billion euros saved, the equivalent to 2.33% of GDP. At ...Read full article...

Brussels wants Britain to be Europe’s Ghetto

While in public the European Union says that Britain needs to leave as soon as possible, in private the EU would prefer the British to stay and surrender. Heads of State and Government of Twenty-seven Member-States of the European Union (EU) have said that the United Kingdom can only access the single European market if it accepts the “four freedoms” the unelected bureaucracy demands, among them the so-called freedom ...Read full article...

The Brexit reshuffles World Geopolitics

While the world Press is searching for ways to re-start the reconstruction of Europe, still without Russia and now without the United Kingdom, Thierry Meyssan considers that nothing can now prevent the collapse of the system. However, he points out, what is at stake is not the European Union itself, but the institutions which enable the domination of the world by the United States, and the integrity of the ...Read full article...

Tories Intend Greater Austerity Following Brexit Vote

Political fallout from Thursday’s Brexit vote didn’t take long to unfold. David Cameron began it by announcing his resignation, effective when Torries meet in October, he said. On Tuesday, UK Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne’s greater austerity announcement didn’t surprise. Days before last Thursday’s vote, he claimed Brexit would cause a 30 billion pound public finance hole – public health service, education, transport and other spending cuts needed, ...Read full article...

Turmoil in Britain Following Brexit

Major disruptions rarely happen, Brexit the latest, a surprise to most observers, reverberations felt in Britain, across Europe, in America and elsewhere. David Cameron is stepping down as UK prime minister, though delaying his departure until October. Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour leadership is threatened. Over half his shadow cabinet ministers intend standing down on Sunday or later in the week – following Brexit and his sacking Hillary Benn overnight Saturday, ...Read full article...

Despite the Vote, the Odds Are Against Britain Leaving the EU

The Brexit vote shows that a majority of the British voters understand that the UK government represents interests other than the interests of the British people. As difficult as the British know it is to hold their own government to account, they understand they have no prospect whatsoever of holding the EU government to account. During their time under the EU, the British have been reminded of historical times ...Read full article...

Britain is out, and so is David Cameron

The global order that has been planned for decades in which technocrats control the destiny of whole nations suffered a reversal on Thursday, as British people decided to say goodbye to the European Union. The OUT vote reached the magic number of 16.835.512 while those who wanted to stay in the EU added up to just 15.692.093. The decision of the British people, justified mainly due to economic concerns and the ...Read full article...

Why the Result of the British Referendum doesn’t Matter

Both the EU and EU supporter, David Cameron, have it within their power to deny a YES vote. All the fuss and bother about Brexit largely ignores its non-binding status – parliament, not voters deciding if Britain stays or leaves the EU, the latter extremely unlikely. Writing in the Financial Times, British lawyer David Allen Green explained Brexit voting is “advisory,” not “mandatory.” Parliament has final say. MPs can ...Read full article...
