Congressional Anti-Consumer DARK Act Legislation

U.S. Government Denying Americans the Right to Know On March 25, House Rep. Mike Pompeo (R. KS) introduced HR 1599: Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015. It seeks “(t)o amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act with respect to food produced from, containing, or consisting of a bioengineered organism, the labeling of natural foods, and for other purposes.” Critics call the measure the Denying Americans the ...Read full article...

What is food if not your Medicine

Shouldn’t you be paying close attention to what you ingest, then? Most of our readers are probably aware of the difference between real food and products labeled as things that someone thinks is food. However, non-food products are closer to our fridges and dinner tables than we think, even while being careful with what we eat. The average supermarket, which most people recognize are their only source of food, ...Read full article...

Netanyahu Forms New Racist, Fascist Government

They prioritize stealing all valued Palestinian land. They deplore peace. Netanyahu calls pursuing it a waste of time.  Weeks after Israeli’s March 17 elections, Netanyahu and four other extremist political parties formed a new coalition government – barely with 61 of 120 Knesset seats. Bar-Ilan University Professor Eytan Gilboa calls it “a big political mess…Nobody in his right mind believes that this will hold for even a short time.” ...Read full article...

Saudis killing Yemenis with US-Supplied Cluster Bombs

Israel and Saudi Arabia represent regional fascist police state viciousness. Fundamental international laws are systematically violated. Israel mass murders Palestinians with impunity. Saudi terror-bombing massacres Yemenis – willfully targeting defenseless noncombatant men, women and children. US-led Western nations provide full support and encouragement. Media scoundrels turn a blind eye to what demands daily denunciation. Earlier reports indicated Saudis attacked Yemen’s Saada province with banned chemical agents. Toxic gas left ...Read full article...

Israel violated the humany of Palestinians in Gaza

Members of the Israeli military have denounced, under condition of anonymity, that the Army violated its own rules during last summer’s offensive on Gaza. According to Israeli soldiers, the military operation known as Protective Edge used excessive force, and had no regard for the lives of civilians when it arbitrarily shelled homes with artillery. “The Israeli army threw its code of ethics out the window with nothing to say ...Read full article...

Nightmares from Vietnam are not over yet

Up until the invasion of Iraq, Vietnam was probably the deadliest example of mass murder in a non-war combat event. Vietnam was not a war, although it is often labeled as such, because there were never two contending sides. The only contender was the American Army. On the other side, there were the Vietnamese people. In the same way it happened in Iraq after 9/11, the United States invaded ...Read full article...

Violence rages in El Salvador

Nothing remains from the gang truce that began in 2012 with the tacit acceptance by the Government and supported by the Organization of American States and the church. Peace lasted 15 months, during which the homicide rate dropped from 15 to five murders a day. Since early 2014, amid a tense atmosphere of conservative opinion against dialogue with the bands, the leftist cabinet of former President Mauricio Funes, was ...Read full article...

The Anthrax Coverup Exposed

Graeme MacQueen’s 2014 book, The 2001 Anthrax Deception: The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy, has been vindicated by the head of the FBI’s Anthrax Investigation. Four and one-half months ago I posted a review of MacQueen’s book. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/12/02/2001-anthrax-deception-case-domestic-conspiracy/. They hired government apologists, the despicable presstitute media, and the usual gullible patriots greeted the book with screams of “conspiracy theory.” In fact, MacQueen’s book was a carefully researched project that ...Read full article...

Jewish Settlers use Palestinian Children as Labor force

Human Rights Watch, an advocacy organization for human rights reported today that Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank are using Palestinian minors as laborers in agriculture fields, a practice that is contrary to international law. In a 74-page report, Human Rights Watch (HRW) says that Israeli settlements, mostly in the Jordan Valley, employ children as young as 11 years old, mainly in agricultural work for which they typically ...Read full article...

Iran: The Leading Proponent for a Nuclear Weapons-Free World

As long as these weapons exist, humanity’s survival remains up for grabs. Sooner or later they’ll be used. Armageddon may follow. The world’s entire nuclear weapons stockpile must be eliminated to prevent it. The consequences otherwise are too potentially catastrophic to ignore. Albert Einstein deplored nuclear weapons. “I have always condemned the use of the atomic bomb against Japan,” he said. Five months before his November 1954 death, he ...Read full article...

Russia Urges Resolving Yemen’s Conflict Diplomatically

Russia is the world’s leading peace and stability proponent. US policy is polar opposite. You’d never know what Russia stands for the way it’s irresponsibly bashed. Big Lies substitute for hard truths. Vladimir Putin, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and other Russian officials continue working tirelessly for peace in Syria, Ukraine and now Yemen. On April 2, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich expressed great concern about Yemen’s ongoing conflict. ...Read full article...

A Middle East Holocaust

Foundations and corporations do not support truth-tellers. American foundations underwrite war and US imperialism. Foundations support subversion of countries that are not Washington’s puppet states. Your website has no foundation support, no corporate support; it only has your support. I have been around for a long time and have experienced more than most. The current situation in my experience is the most dangerous time of all for humanity. Nuclear ...Read full article...

War is popular because it’s profitable

China is already the third largest arms exporter in the world. Although its share of the global total is only 5%, well below the 58% owned by the United States and Russia, that supply the most arms to international markets. In the last five years, arms sales by China have grown 143% over the previous five years, according to the report released Monday by the Research Institute for International ...Read full article...
