Rage Over Erdogan Prohibiting Press Freedom

Outrage followed Erdogan’s latest blow to press freedom, taking over Turkey’s largest circulation broadsheet – Zaman and its English language Today’s Zaman edition, a brazen example of police state viciousness. Human Rights Watch (HRW) called the takeover Erdogan’s “latest attempt…to silence critical media.” Amnesty International (AI) blasted what it called “the latest deeply troubling episode in the Turkish authorities’ ongoing onslaught on dissenting media.” “By lashing out and seeking ...Read full article...

Moscow, Rampart against the Jihadists

Since 2012, Moscow has been trying to rally the Western powers to its cause – to defend civilisation against jihadism, as the world was once united against Nazism. In order to do so, it first of all dissociated the White House from the combatants that the United States call “rebels”, and whom Moscow regards as “jihadists”. Today, it is trying to isolate Turkey. Far from being a diplomatic epiphenomenon, ...Read full article...

BBC Reinvented History of War in Syria

The BBC is owned and operated by the British government, a propaganda tool masquerading as a legitimate news, information and analysis media outlet. What’s most important for people to know, BBC and its Western counterparts systematically suppress, substituting state-approved propaganda – serving their governments’ interests. In early February, the BBC reinvented the history of war in Syria, substituting state-sponsored misinformation and Big Lies for vital hard facts essential to ...Read full article...

Has the American Government Abandoned Genocide?

The misuse of medicine and the perversion of science to halt population growth worldwide under the pretext of improving health, preventing the spread of disease, and providing development aid are enshrined in the 2010 Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (QDDR). This report is entitled “Leading Through Civilian Power”, but a more accurate name would have been “Civil society schmucks will do the dirty work for us and they won’t ...Read full article...

How Turkey supports the Jihadists

Russia questioned the future of Turkey when it delivered to the Security Council an intelligence report concerning Turkey’s activities in support of jihadists. The document includes about ten revelations which implicate the activities of the MIT. The problem is that each of the operations listed refers back to operations in which the same actors worked with the United States or their allies against Russia. This information adds to that ...Read full article...

Pope Francis’ attack on Trump was a Shameful Act

Pope Francis said nothing about Vatican City’s walled enclave in Rome. The separation of church and state in America is fundamental. Thomas Jefferson and others stressed its inviolability. More on this below. Vatican history isn’t pretty. Pontiffs notoriously meddle where they don’t belong. Liberation theology supporting social justice is verboten. Pope Francis’ high-minded rhetoric belies papal tradition, supporting wealth and power interests, paying lip service alone to popular needs ...Read full article...

The USA and Russia become allies in Syria

The meeting of the International Syria Support Group seems to have marked the takeover of the Syrian situation by the White House, to the detriment of the neoconservatives and the liberal hawks. The final declaration imposes supervision of the UNO by the US and Russia, which removes Jeffrey Feltman from his prerogatives. It imposes free circulation of humanitarian aid and the end of hostilities. The formula chosen legitimises Russian ...Read full article...

Political Correctness: The World of the Perpetually Offended

“Political correctness is tyranny with manners.”  —– Charlon Heston. Political correctness is key in centralizing power. That is why more and more people, who are purportedly liberal or progressive, are all out to curve people’s choice of words and even thoughts. The growing number of people who think that individuals’ speech should be regulated by the government to avoid politically incorrect statements are persons who have been hiding under the ...Read full article...

There Is No Freedom Without Truth

“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every statehouse, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the ...Read full article...

The West Is Reduced To Looting Itself

Myself, Michael Hudson, John Perkins, and a few others have reported the multi-pronged looting of peoples by Western economic institutions, principally the big New York Banks with the aid of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Third World countries were and are looted by being enticed into development plans for electrification or some such purpose. The gullible and trusting governments are told that they can make their countries rich by ...Read full article...

The 21st Century: An Era Of Fraud

In the last years of the 20th century fraud entered US foreign policy in a new way.  On false pretenses, Washington dismantled Yugoslavia and Serbia in order to advance an undeclared agenda. In the 21st century, this fraud multiplied many times. Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, and Libya were destroyed, and Iran and Syria would also have been destroyed if the President of Russia had not prevented it. Washington is also ...Read full article...

New US Sanctions on Iran

With Iran celebrating international sanctions lifted on its entirely peaceful nuclear program, the US Treasury imposed new ones unilaterally and illegally – again solely for political reasons. A Treasury press release said Iran’s ballistic missile program was targeted, unrelated to its nuclear activities. Eleven domestic and foreign entities as well as individuals are targeted. Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Adam Szubin lied, claiming “Iran’s ballistic missile ...Read full article...

El Chapo v. Longstanding CIA Global Drugs Trafficking

Drug lords come and go, El Chapo’s arrest of little consequence, doing nothing to stem the flow of illicit drugs. Business as usual continues. His operation and others like his pale compared to CIA global drugs trafficking – a topic media scoundrels won’t touch. Its involvement began in 1947, its first year of existence. In his book titled “The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade,” ...Read full article...

Russia: America’s Main Geopolitical Adversary

Preserving Syrian sovereignty is key to preventing Iran’s isolation, and the entire region becoming a US/Israeli colony. At least from when the Soviet Union replaced Tsarist Russia, Washington and Britain wanted regime change, officials installed they controlled. Three months before WW I ended, Britain led a multi-nation force. At the time, Lloyd George was Prime Minister. Churchill was UK Minister of War and Air. Woodrow Wilson was US president. ...Read full article...

Why is a Hate Campaign being Waged against Muslims?

Why are Muslims increasingly categorized as terrorists? Why is this hate campaign  part of the US  presidential election campaign? Why is Donald Trump calling for police state measures directed against American Muslims? Why are Muslims the object of ethnic profiling and job discrimination? Why has France’s president Francois Hollande suspended civil rights coupled with a hate campaign directed against France’s Muslims, which represent 7.5 percent of the country’s population? Why is ...Read full article...
