Senate Defeats Anti-Consumer Trade Bill Fast Track Authority

Score one for the good guys. A previous article explained so-called “trade promotion authority (TPA)” lets Obama and his trade representative, complicit with corporate predators, ram through Congress, with minimal debate, no amendments or public discussion outrageous legislation global justice advocates call NAFTA on steroids. Proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) are stealth corporate coup d’etat measures – freedom and ecosystem-destroying nightmares. Corporate giants ...Read full article...

The Double Edged Sword

My Double Edged Trip to Plaquemines Parish, began at night while driving from Mississippi on a two laned highway. Etched across the skies in the dark forever in my mind’s eye, were the lights of megalithic refineries. It was an auditory hauntingly quiet, drive into a place that I had never been, but visually my eyes were overwhelmed with the colorful lights. As far as the eye could see, ...Read full article...

Back in Fascist Canada

There is no place like home, unless home is no longer what it used to be. It is not pleasant to get back home when home is a place where free people are abused, attacked, harassed and intimidated. This is the experience author and activist Kevin Mugur Galalae went through this week at an airport checkpoint in Canada. The problem is that Mr. Galalae is not a criminal or ...Read full article...

Will Washington Kill Us All?

Did you know that Washington keeps 450 nuclear ICBMs on “hair-trigger alert”? Washington thinks that this makes us “safe.” The reasoning, if it can be called reason, is that by being able to launch in a few minutes, no one will try to attack the US with nuclear weapons. US missiles are able to get on their way before the enemy’s missiles can reach the US to destroy ours. ...Read full article...

FBI accused of whitewashing Saudi involvement in 9/11 attacks. “Red-Herring”, Propaganda Ploy

The alleged Saudi involvement in supporting Osama bin Laden, not to mention the classified 28 pages of the 9/11 joint Congressional inquiry pertaining to the insidious role of Saudi Arabia in supporting the hijackers is  part of a propaganda ploy.  When the report of Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 was released in December 2002, it was met with considerable skepticism. That skepticism grew for a period of time but then was reduced to ...Read full article...

The CDC is a “Cesspool of Corruption”

Despite the mainstream media’s success in keeping Robert Kennedy Jr.’s statements on vaccines quiet, the surging alternative media managed to make his announcement go around the world to make it to the headlines that the pharmaceutical establishment does not want you to read about. In short, Kennedy said what has been rightly pointed out by James F. Tracy, and that is that “Big Pharma has Captured the Scientific, Regulatory, ...Read full article...

Manufacturing Dissent

Professor Michel Chossudovsky is the author of many important books. His latest is The Globalization of War: America’s Long War Against Humanity. Chossudovsky shows that Washington has globalized war while the US president is presented as a global peace-maker, complete with the Nobel Peace Prize. Washington has military deployed in 150 countries, has the world divided up into six US military commands and has a global strike plan that ...Read full article...

US General Blames Iran for US Crimes in Iraq

Blaming others for its own crimes is longstanding US policy. Lunatic active duty, retired and defrocked Pentagon generals lie like their government counterparts. David Petraeus is one of the worst. On March 20, the neocon Washington Post headlined “Petraeus: The Islamic State isn’t our biggest problem in Iraq.” He attended an annual University of Iraq Sulaimani Forum gathering of “Iraqi leaders, thinkers and academics…” He commented on Obama’s Iraq ...Read full article...

Obama Reevaluating US Position on Israel? Don’t Bet on it!

A so-called special relationship began in March 1948 when Harry Truman met secretly with Israel’s future first president Chaim Weizmann. He pledged support for the future Jewish state. Minutes after midnight on May 15, 1948, America was the first country extending recognition. A special relationship remains strong for strategic reasons. It developed politically, economically and militarily. Leaders come and go. Names and faces change. Bumps in the road occasionally ...Read full article...

America v. Humanity

America’s rage for global dominance represents humanity’s greatest threat. Never before has survival been more jeopardized. US imperial policies may kill us all. They may end life on earth. Endless wars of aggression are waged against one country after another. Confronting Russia recklessly risks nuclear war. Media scoundrel complicity makes it more likely. So do Ukrainian flashpoint conditions. Ceasefire agreed to in Minsk last month is shaky at best. ...Read full article...

Fascist Republican Senators Threaten Iran

Lunatics infesting Washington make their own rules – made up to suit their warped objectives. On March 9, 47 fascist Republican senators addressed “An Open Letter to the Leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” They acted recklessly like Netanyahu. The intervened directly into (multi-nation) P5+1 talks. They warned any deal Obama negotiates without legislative approval may be reversed by the next president “with a stroke of a pen.” ...Read full article...

Racial Discrimination will continue in Ferguson and the rest of America

Despite the fact that the US Justice Department has found that Ferguson Missouri is governed by racial discrimination, those who carried out discriminatory practices are not held accountable for their actions. The United States is a deeply racist country. Racism is embeded in the fabric of the American way of life. In America, whites dislike blacks and blacks distrust whites. Latinos dislike whites and whites despise Latinos. One of ...Read full article...

Ferguson Police Racially Discriminates against Black residents, concludes U.S. Justice Department

Racism in Ferguson goes as far as someone saying that not even Obama himself could hold his job for four years due to the color of his skin. An investigation conducted by the Department of Justice of the United States seconded the most widespread complaint among black residents in Ferguson: police and justice discriminate against them. After six months of investigation, the federal government has concluded that the police, ...Read full article...

Obama hits back at Netanyahu

The US president, Barack Obama, said yesterday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, had offered no “viable alternative” to the current negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program. Speaking to reporters at the White House, Obama said he saw Netanyahu’s speech and later read the transcript. “There was nothing new,” said Obama about Netanyahu’s speech, in line with the Prime Minister’s statement that “no one can doubt” that the ...Read full article...
