Introspections on Human Rights: The Effects of Overpopulation on Human Rights

Many past civilizations grew beyond their food supply or resources and collapsed. The people of Easter Island, the Mayas and the Mycenaean civilization provide compelling examples. The modern world is also on the brink of self-destruction and this time it will be global unless we act decisively at this eleventh hour. The approaching collapse is foretold by the depletion of natural resources and violent competition for them, environmental damage, ...Read full article...

IMF Sponsored “Democracy” in The Ukraine

There is an ongoing and deliberate attempt by foreign powers to spearhead the destabilization of Ukraine including its state structure. There is a long history of colored revolutions in Ukraine going back to the 1990s. The protest movement in Kiev bears a marked resemblance to the “Orange Revolution” of 2004 which was supported covertly by Washington. The 2004 “Orange Revolution” led to the ousting of the pro-Russian Prime Minister ...Read full article...

Frenzy in the Gold Market: The Repatriation of Gold Reserves

The decision of Germany’s Bundesbank to repatriate part of its Gold Reserves held at the New York Federal Reserve bank has triggered a frenzy in the gold market. German news sources suggest that a large portion of the German gold stored in the vaults of the New York Fed and the Banque de France is to be moved back to Germany. According to analysts, this move could potentially “trigger ...Read full article...

Chinese Oil Executives Secure Possession of Energy Sources Worldwide

BRAZIL – The top executives of major oil companies opened dozens of Chinese companies in the British Virgin Islands, the Cook Islands and other tax havens between 1995 and 2008, according to the database of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). The secretive nature of the system of tax havens and the refusal of the companies to respond to questions in the context of investigative journalism, makes it ...Read full article...

NSA’s Fake War on Terror

A New America Foundation report suggests it. More on this below. NSA spying is longstanding. It’s ongoing abroad and at home. It has nothing to do with national security. It’s unrelated to uncovering terrorist plots. Homegrown ones virtually don’t exist. Alleged ones are hatched. They’re fake. Claiming dozens were foiled in time is false. They’re Big Lies. Previous articles discussed dozens of innocent victims. They included: a fake shoe ...Read full article...

NAFTA’s Deplorable Legacy

Wall Street Journal columnist Mary O’Grady reinvents history. She does it her way. It’s the wrong way. She turns truth on its head. Her commentaries read like bad fiction. They substitute misinformation for indisputable facts. Responsible editors wouldn’t touch this. Journal editors embrace it. NAFTA was hugely destructive trade policy. It’s opposite of what’s needed. More on why below. Not according to O’Grady. On January 5, she headlined ”Nafta at 20: ...Read full article...

The Killings Fields of Gaza

Colin Green CounterPunch January 8, 2014 Revelations from Israeli sources such as ‘Breaking the Silence’ and ‘Physicians for Human Rights-Israel’ that the Israeli assaults on Gaza in 2008/9 (Cast Lead) and 2012 (Pillars of Defence) were planned many months ahead pose many questions about the real motives for the seven year siege and these massive attacks on a helpless concentration of impoverished and imprisoned people.  Let us then pose ...Read full article...

America’s Democratic Dictatorship

By Dr. Robert P. Abele Global Research January 6, 2014 As must appear self-evident to both historians and astute observers by now, the United States, in its history, has had a rather facile and at times acrimonious relationship to the idea of domestic democracy (If this is not self-evident, see Noam Chomsky, Hegemony or Survival, along with Failed States. For a specific analysis of this observation applied to the ...Read full article...

Washington’s Dirty Game in Ukraine

Weeks of Ukraine street protests continue. Washington’s dirty hands are involved. They’re manipulating things disruptively. Imperial ruthlessness operates this way. International law is clear and unequivocal. Meddling in the internal affairs of other countries is illegal. Doing so is longstanding US policy. It’s to eliminate independent sovereign states. It’s about replacing them with pro-Western vassal ones. It’s about weakening major rivals. It aims to eliminate them altogether if possible. ...Read full article...

Washington’s New Islamic Front: Expanded U.S. Support to Al Qaeda Rebels in Syria

From the outset, the Western military alliance has (covertly) supported the terrorists with a view to destabilizing Syria as a nation state. Lest we forget, Al Qaeda is a creation of the CIA.  The US, NATO, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have channeled most of their support to the Al Qaeda brigades, which are also integrated by Western Special Forces. British and French Special Forces have been actively ...Read full article...

Israel’s War on Palestinian Children

Israel is a serial human rights abuser. It’s one of the world’s worst. It’s war on Palestinian children alone reflects it. They’re systematically abused unjustly. Up to 700 are arrested annually. Most are lawlessly charged with stone-throwing. Children young as five are terrorized. They’re too young to know why. They’re abusively treated during arrests, transfers and interrogations. They’re denied fundamental rights. In 1991, Israel ratified the 1989 UN Convention ...Read full article...

The Israeli Invasion and Gaza’s Offshore Gas Fields

The military invasion of the Gaza Strip by Israeli Forces bears a direct relation to the control and ownership of strategic offshore gas reserves.  This is a war of conquest. Discovered in 2000, there are extensive gas reserves off the Gaza coastline.  British Gas (BG Group) and its partner, the Athens based Consolidated Contractors International Company (CCC) owned by Lebanon’s Sabbagh and Koury families, were granted oil ...Read full article...

Massive Pentagon Waste, Fraud and Grand Theft

teveLongstanding Pentagon operations reflect a black hole of unaccountability. Reuters published a two-part report. In July, it discussed the Defense Department’s “payroll quagmire.” It’s bureaucracy is stifling. It’s “unyielding,” said Reuters. Active duty and retired military personal are routinely cheated. Pay errors are widespread. Correcting “or just explaining them can test even the most persistent soldiers.” Weeks or months pass without resolution. Some personnel are cheated on pay. Others ...Read full article...
