Russia Blasts US Presence in Syria and Support for ISIS

ISIS fighters operate along with so-called Syrian Democratic Forces, including other Arab terrorists and YPG elements. On Tuesday, Russia’s Defense Ministry explained it has evidence of US support for ISIS, saying: “The Abu Kamal liberation operation conducted by the Syrian government army with air cover by the Russian Aerospace Force at the end of the last week revealed facts of direct cooperation and support for ISIS terrorists by the ...Read full article...

What To Do If You can’t Evacuate Before a Hurricane

There are a lot of people stranded in the areas that are likely to be the hardest hit by Hurricane Irma. While it’s easy to say, “Oh, they should have left earlier” and run through the gamut of blame, the fact remains that there are all sorts of reasons that leaving didn’t work out. Gas stations have run dry, which means that people can’t drive their cars to leave. ...Read full article...

The Weaponization of History and Journalism

In the United States, facts, an important element of truth, are not important. They are not important in the media, politics, universities, historical explanations, or the courtroom. Non-factual explanations of the collapse of three World Trade Center buildings are served up as the official explanation. Facts have been politicized, emotionalized, weaponized and simply ignored. As David Irving has shown, Anglo-American histories of World War 2 are, for the most ...Read full article...

American Troops to Afghanistan to battle for its Mineral Riches

Trump calls for escalation of the war in Afghanistan. Why? Is it part of the “Global War on Terrorism”, going after the bad guys, or is it something else? Unknown to the broader public, Afghanistan has significant oil, natural gas and strategic raw material resources, not to mention opium, a multibillion dollar industry which feeds America’s illegal heroin market. These mineral reserves include huge veins of iron, copper, cobalt, ...Read full article...

Forbes: Self-Reliant Homesteaders Are “Delusional”

It’s always interesting reading when someone smug and sanctimonious writes a clueless diatribe about another group of people being smug and sanctimonious. So when I saw that an economist for Moody’s and Forbes had written an op-ed calling self-reliant homesteaders “delusional,” I knew I’d be in for some misinformed hilarity. The article, entitled, “Dear Homesteaders, Self-Reliance Is a Delusion” was published a couple of days ago on the Forbes ...Read full article...

Islam and clericalism in the Greater Middle East

It is fashionable in the West to talk about the « compatibility of Islam and democracy » or « Islam and secularism ». These issues suggest that by nature Islam is clerical, and therefore not a religion, but a political current. Consequently, the most « radical » Muslims are terrorists and vice versa. And yet, for the last month, the Greater Middle East, with its mostly Muslim population, is ...Read full article...

Cover Stories Are Used To Control Explanations

Years ago James Jesus Angleton left me with the impression that when an intelligence agency, such as the CIA, pulls off an assassination, bombing, or any event with which the agency does not wish to be associated, the agency uses the media to control the explanation by quickly putting into place a cover story that, along with several others, has been prepared in advance. I suggested that the new ...Read full article...

What the Washington Post does not tell you about ISIS

Report on Trump Disclosure of Information on ISIS to Russia Suppressed What’s Most Important All Western media reports are suspect, notably on war and peace as well as other geopolitical issues, especially anything related to Russia. Media scoundrels seek pretexts to bash its government and leadership – the latest example from the neocon/CIA-connected Washington Post, serving as a virtual house organ for the spy agency, putting out material it ...Read full article...

How Information Is Controlled by Washington, Israel, and Trolls

I very much appreciate the support you show for me in your emails. I seldom receive a rude email from you, and when I do it is usually something off subject, such as a reader angry with Israel and unloading on me with an accusation that I am a coward and a “Jew-lover” because I don’t do enough to expose the crimes of the Jews. This accusation always amuses ...Read full article...

France caught up in terrorism, victim of her own NATO allies

France become the victim of a new terrorist attack, three days before the first round of the Presidential election. Paris needs to stop talking rubbish and realise the importance of what this means. International terrorism, in which France itself participates, is commanded and used – even against the country – by certain of its NATO allies. At the beginning of 2017, we were informed that jihadists were preparing actions ...Read full article...

Destroy Daesh?

While Washington multiplies the signals confirming its intention to destroy Daesh, the British and the French, followed by the rest of the Europeans, are contemplating going their own way. London and Paris may have coordinated the attacks on Damascus and Hama in order to force the Syrian Arab Army to move out to defend them, and consequently, to weaken their presence around Rakka. The Europeans are hoping to organise ...Read full article...

UN Report Calls Israel an Apartheid Regime

Titled “Israeli Practices towards the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid,” authors Richard Falk and Virginia Tilley discussed how Israel persecutes and dominates defenseless Palestinians. Apartheid is a high crime against humanity, ongoing in Israel since its 1948 establishment, hardening over time, worst of all under Netanyahu’s coalition regime. The authors state their “study was motivated by the desire to promote compliance with international human rights law, uphold ...Read full article...

Amnesty International Fake News

AI is on the wrong side of the Syrian conflict, its reports sounding like US and scoundrel media propaganda. Its 1915-16 annual report on Syria was a litany of misinformation and Big Lies, claiming “(g)overnment forces and non-state armed groups committed war crimes, other violations of international humanitarian law and gross human rights abuses with impunity in the internal armed conflict.” “Government forces carried out indiscriminate attacks and attacks ...Read full article...

Can Donald J. Trump Deliver?

Trump’s executive orders don’t support the argument that he is acting for the One Percent. My view of Trump is conditional and awaits evidence. I am encouraged by the One Percent’s opposition to Trump, or we have just experienced the greatest ruse in history. Indeed, a pointless ruse, as the Establishment had its candidate in Hillary. Trump’s executive orders don’t support the argument that he is acting for the ...Read full article...

The Justice System Is Criminal

On January 23, 2017, I asked, “Are Americans Racists?” I pointed out examples where racist explanations prevail over empirical fact. I did not write that there is no racism in America. I said that racism is not the be-all and end-all explanation of American history and institutions. The point I made is that racist explanations are often inadequate and both work against racial harmony and blind us to more ...Read full article...
