“Open the Vatican to Refugees”

Very little of what Pope Francis says is coherent with his actions. While he travels the world preaching to people about justice and solidarity, there is little of those two qualities to be found in his actions, at least not with the same intensity as in his speeches. Pope Francis has managed to alarm the most conservative segment of Christianity and Catholicism due to the content of his message. ...Read full article...

It begins: US Drones Attack Syria’s Military

On September 11, a publication called Russian Spring reported US unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attacks on Syrian military positions – “disguised as an airstrike on ISIS.” Syrian journalists learned details of what’s happening. Numerous civilians were killed. According to Syrian military sources, covert US drone strikes against its forces and positions happened before, part of Washington’s phony war on ISIS. On September 1, the Washington Post headlined “US launches ...Read full article...

How to Survive a Stock Market Crash

Last week, our stock market began to freefall. By Friday, August 21, the market was down more than 1300 points. Over the course of two days, it dropped further than any single-day crash in American history. But it wasn’t just the US stock market that had a bad week. According to Zero Hedge, markets across the globe are going to heck on a greased slide: China’s worst week since ...Read full article...

Tsipras: Chronicles of a Traitor

Alexis Tsipras, the alleged leader of Syriza, who came to power with the sole mission of returning Greece to the Greeks, turned out to be a false prophet, a hoax, a distraction, a traitor. Written by Luis R. Miranda and Stephen J. Lendman It is true that Greece got into trouble way before Alexis Tsipras became the leader of Syriza. It all started after Greece entered the EU via ...Read full article...

Massive Migrations: A Prelude to the next Global Conflict

While people pull their hair off their skulls trying to find a way to deal with the massive influx of Africans and Middle Eastern immigrants who arrive in Europe North America and South America, I would like to point out two aspects that have not been considered by very few people. The fact is that the most powerful causes of immigration are two: lack of basic living conditions and/or ...Read full article...

The Dying Institutions Of Western Civilization

Judicial Branch Has Self-Abolished The US no longer has a judiciary. This former branch of government has transitioned into an enabler of executive branch fascism. Privacy is a civil liberty protected by the US Constitution. The Constitution relies on courts to enforce its prohibitions against intrusive government, but if the executive branch claims (no proof required) “national security,” courts kiss the Constitution good-bye. Federal judges are chosen by the ...Read full article...

‘Global Warming’ is All About Anti-Capitalist Polemics, And Has Nothing to Do, Really, With Science

(SomewhatReasonable.com) Liberal writer Naomi Klein’s magnum opus on the environment, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate, is a must-read for conservatives and libertarians.  The mask is off. Klein admits progressive policies on the environment are really about what Marx and Lenin said the communist revolution desired 100 years ago — the overthrow of capitalism. This is not about science, or health, at all.  “Our economic model is at war with the Earth,” ...Read full article...

Nobel Prize Winning Scientists Support Iran Nuclear Deal

Almost thirty prominent American scientists -six Nobel prize winners- have publicly expressed their support for the agreement that limits Iran’s nuclear program. In a letter to President Barack Obama, renowned experts praised the nuclear arms control pact that imposes “stricter limitations” that any agreement of nuclear non-proliferation, and that according to the letter “advances the cause of peace and security in the Middle East”. The scientists also pointed out ...Read full article...

Obama Heads for Full-Scale War on Syria

It’s been coming for a long time – facilitated by repeated Big Lies about Bashar al-Assad, ignoring his overwhelming public support, especially for defending Syria responsibly against imported Islamic State and other takfiri terrorists, enlisted by Washington as foot soldiers to topple his government. Obama upped the stakes a year ago by authorizing the bombing of Syrian infrastructure targets, a bandit diktat without Security Council or congressional authorization – ...Read full article...

Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Gratuitous Mass Murder

The atomic age began on August 6, 1945 in real time – after its July 16 pre-dawn open-air birth in successful Alamogordo, NM testing. At the time, perhaps prophetically General Thomas Farrell said “(w)e were reaching into the unknown, and we did not know what might come of it.” Called by some “the father of the atomic bomb,” Robert Oppenheimer quoted from the Bhagavad Gita saying: “Now I am ...Read full article...

Proposed Arab Resolution to Monitor Israeli Nuclear Facilities

On August 3, Haaretz reported on a resolution proposed by Egypt and other regional states to monitor Israeli nuclear sites – to be voted on at the IAEA’s mid-September general conference. The nonbinding resolution titled “Israeli nuclear capabilities” was introduced several times earlier without success. “It condemns Israel, demands that it open its reported nuclear facilities to IAEA inspection, and calls for an international conference on making the Middle ...Read full article...

Suboptimal Nutrition Significantly contributes to Epidemic of Mental Illness

The rates of psychiatric illness in children has doubled over the last five years. There has been a three-fold in ADHD, a twenty-fold increase in autism and a forty-fold increase in bipolar disorder. There is no such a thing as cheap food. The price is always paid by someone else, and more often than not, it is paid by those who believe that cheap food is an option. Few ...Read full article...

Many tears shed for Cecil, but who will cry for baby Ali Saad?

The world has been surprised and shocked by the death of a lion and many people have condemned the man who killed the animal while hunting in Zimbabwe. But not all living beings are the same, it seems, as the murder of a Palestinian baby by Israeli settlers has not seen the same level of outrage. A Palestinian baby as young as a year and a half was burned ...Read full article...

National Endowment for Democracy a “threat to the security” of Russia

NED’s duplicitous mission statement indicates a “dedicat(ion) to the growth and strengthening of democratic institutions around the world.” Its practices are polar opposite – a State Department-funded agency created to undermine democracy wherever it exists. It’s a global mischief-maker – a rogue agency financing anti-democratic groups and initiatives in scores of countries worldwide. Its objective is regime change – notably in independent nations like Russia. It subversively interferes in ...Read full article...

New ‘safety zone’ will be a launchpad for terrorism in Syria

NATO wants to place war refugees in a so-called safety zone from which anti-government forces, armed and funded by Turkey, NATO and the US, will attack civilians in Syria. Should Assad respond to those attacks launched from the safety zone, he will be accused of bombing the refugees, which will in turn build support for an open military intervention in the country. The Syrian National Coalition, the main opposition ...Read full article...
