North America

The threat is the existence of sovereign states

Pentagon Concludes America Not Safe Unless It Conquers The World The Pentagon has released its “National Military Strategy of the United States of America 2015,” June 2015. The document announces a shift in focus from terrorists to “state actors” that “are challenging international norms.” It is important to understand what these words mean. Governments that challenge international norms are sovereign countries that pursue policies independently of Washington’s policies. These ...Read full article...

Hillary Clinton Supports Illegal Israeli Settlements

Clinton’s support for Israel is unwavering – one-sided like virtually everyone else in Washington. Palestinian rights don’t matter except at times paying them disingenuous lip service. As a New York senator (from January 2001 – January 2009), Clinton said “undivided Jerusalem as (Israel’s) capital…must never be questioned” – or its status as “a Jewish state,” regardless of its large Arab population on privately owned land and recognition under international ...Read full article...

Obama Declares Permanent War on Humanity

Obama heads Washington’s lunatic fringe – a criminal gang waging endless wars, deploring peace, and pursuing phony war on terrorism to advance their imperial aims while at the same time threatening humanity’s survival. Flanked by Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, Joint Chiefs Chairman General Martin Dempsey and other top Pentagon warriors on Monday, Obama underscored his permanent war agenda, saying “(t)his will not be quick. This is a longterm campaign…generational,” ...Read full article...

Pentagon Calls Russia, China, Iran and North Korea Threats to Global Peace

The Pentagon’s new National Military Strategy (its first update since 2011) signaled possible major wars with US adversaries. The world’s leader aggressor on a global scale named four nations threatening no others as major US security threats: Russia, China, Iran and North Korea – plus non-state groups like ISIS (without mentioning they’re US creations). The document turns truth on its head blaming Russia for violating “numerous agreements” and “military ...Read full article...

John F. Kennedy’s speech that sounds like prophecy

John F. Kennedy knew, as president, that he was in a position where he could fight the system whose birth was brewing. JFK knew it because previous presidents had spoken about that system. They had been tempted and recruited to carry out what the shadow government wanted to be a coup d’Etat that would have ended the United States sooner rather than later. On the day JFK gave his ...Read full article...

U.S Senate Caves on Fast Track

The United States people are now, more than ever, in the hands of their corporate owners. It’s all over but the impending disaster awaiting US consumers and the environment. After cloture ended debate on Tuesday, Senate members overwhelmingly caved to corporate predators, giving them the right to plunder freely – their top priority to profit hugely by ripping off consumers, compromising digital freedom, polluting the environment and overriding national ...Read full article...

U.S. Congress Approves Greater Corporate Predation

On June 18, House members narrowly approved fast track Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) – using procedural gimmicks, bribes and heavy pressure, the usual way corrupt politicians operate. On June 23, Senate members followed suit. A cloture motion to end debate passed – clearing the way for a Wednesday vote expected to support TPA. Public Citizen President Robert Weissman commented saying: The usual “legislative contortions an gimmicks…hand(ed) (corporate predators) their ...Read full article...

New York Times Big Lies

The Times is an establishment publication – a lying machine, a mouthpiece for powerful monied interests at the expense of popular ones. Hard truths are suppressed. Managed news misinformation substitutes. Readers are systematically lied to on issues mattering most. Times editors, correspondents and contributors aren’t journalists. They’re guardians of wealth, power and privilege. On January 22, two editorials willfully lied about Vladimir Putin and America’s economy. A previous article ...Read full article...

Mass Shootings: It’s the disarmament stupid!

Guns don’t shoot people just like cars don’t run over pedestrians. However, politicians and those who favor a disarmed population continue to use every opportunity they find to call for mass disarmament. Why? Let’s establish two important premises before we try to understand why politicians and pro-disarmament people advocate for mass confiscation of firearms. If there is one single common fact about mass shootings is that the perpetrator knows ...Read full article...

NSA Spying: Is a bad deal better than no deal?

The symbolic step taken to go from Patriot Act provisions to Freedom Act regulations is insignificant in the effort to protect privacy. If anyone believed that letting three Patriot Act provisions expire meant real change in the way the NSA spies on millions of innocent people, we have now learned that it didn’t change anything. In fact, the changes were so meaningless that US President, Barack Obama, has signed ...Read full article...

Patriot Act provisions expire after Senate fails to approve extension

Section 215, which enabled bulk collection of phone, Internet and business records is no longer in effect, but will this really mean the end of massive surveillance program? Let’s be honest, the NSA will not stop spying on Americas or American allies. With or without the Patriot Act in effect, the military industrial complex will continue its attempt to completely take over our lives. Although in theory the Patriot ...Read full article...

Yea for Surveillance

The US Senate voted against a bill whose purpose was to end the collection of telephone data of millions of citizens. This practice has been carried out by the National Security Agency (NSA) over decades, but has only been notices fairly recently, after whistleblowers like Edward Snowden and others came forward with documents and testimony about the illegal and unconstitutional practices that until then had been done in secret. ...Read full article...

Memorial Day Is A Hoax

Memorial Day commemorates soldiers killed in war. We are told that the war dead died for us and our freedom. US Marine General Smedley Butler challenged this view. He said that our soldiers died for the profits of the bankers, Wall Street, Standard Oil, and the United Fruit Company. Here is an excerpt from a speech that he gave in 1933: War is just a racket. A racket is ...Read full article...

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...

Is Washington Coming To Its Senses?

There is much speculation about US Secretary of State John Kerry’s rush visit to Russia in the wake of Russia’s successful Victory Day celebration on May 9. On May 11, Kerry, who was snubbing Russia on the 9th, was on his way to Russia, and Putin consented to see him on May 12. As time passes we will find out why Kerry was snubbing Putin on May 9 and ...Read full article...
