The Offshore Outsourcing of American Jobs: A Greater Threat Than Terrorism

Is offshore outsourcing good or harmful for America? To convince Americans of outsourcing’s benefits, corporate outsourcers sponsor misleading one-sided “studies.” Only a small handful of people have looked objectively at the issue. These few and the large number of Americans whose careers have been destroyed by outsourcing have a different view of outsourcing’s impact. But so far there has been no debate, just a shouting down of skeptics as “protectionists.” ...Read full article...

A Failed President, a Declared Dictator

President Barack Obama said Monday that the so-called immigration reform initiative was dead, even though such reform is one of the most defining issues of his second and final term in the White House. Having found that this year Republicans would refuse to submit the bill to a vote in the House of Representatives, Obama said in an appearance in the Rose Garden of the White House that he would ...Read full article...

American Legal System allows for Immigrant Children to Stay Illegally on U.S. Soil

“If you’re asking if we can take an unaccompanied child on the border and return it directly to Guatemala, I do not think the law allows us to do that,” said the US Secretary of Homeland Security. Although the White House has said that thousands of young immigrants who are illegally crossing the border will end up being deported, experts and members of the Obama Administration recognize that the ...Read full article...

“Americans are the New Master Race”

Inferior Humans can be Bombed, Invaded, and Sanctioned. This is American Exceptionalism. It is what Obama Told Us At West Point. At West Point Obama told us, to the applause of West Point cadets, that “American exceptionalism” is a doctrine that justifies whatever Washington does.  If Washington violates domestic and international law by torturing “detainees” or violates the Nuremberg standard by invading countries that have undertaken no hostile action ...Read full article...

Una Nación Excepcional merece un Mentiroso Excepcional

Obama no está “terminando la guerra” porque él está escuchando el llamado de los estadounidenses insatisfechos, sino porque es más práctico y menos costoso asesinar a los opositores estadounidenses con un drone operado desde miles de kilómetros de distancia. El país más excepcional en la Tierra sin duda necesita el mentiroso más excepcional, y Barack Obama es el mejor estafador de la historia de los Estados Unidos. Él es ...Read full article...

America’s Hidden Hunger Crisis

Imagine tens of millions hungry in the world’s richest country. Imagine bipartisan complicity ignoring a growing crisis. Imagine uncaring policymakers. Imagine them cutting vital programs able to help when sizable increases are needed. Imagine serving monied interests at the expense of popular ones. Imagine enriching themselves in the process. Outnumber Hunger (OH) is a nationwide campaign. It enlists people in the growing fight against hunger. It works cooperatively with ...Read full article...

The US Economy Is A House Of Cards

Every aspect of it is fraudulent, and the illusion of recovery is created with fraudulent statistics. The US economy is a house of cards. Every aspect of it is fraudulent, and the illusion of recovery is created with fraudulent statistics. American capitalism itself is an illusion. All financial markets are rigged. Massive liquidity poured into financial markets by the Federal Reserve’s Quantitative Easing inflates stock and bond prices and ...Read full article...

Ukraine Fact Checking: Kerry Bullying, Bluster and Big Lies

A previous article called Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov a world class diplomat. John Kerry is polar opposite. He represents the worst of America’s dark side. He’s vying for Washington’s worst ever Secretary of State top dishonor. He’s what Paul Craig Roberts calls a “two-bit punk.” He’s a war criminal multiple times over. Demagoguery punctuates his comments. It exceeds the worst of Cold War rhetoric. He’s been caught red-handed ...Read full article...

Washington’s Corruption and Mendacity Is What Makes America “Exceptional”

World events permitting, I am going to take a few days off. Many of you write to me asking for financial advice or for explanations of the pros and cons of different investments. I don’t give financial advice and cannot answer such a large number of individual inquiries.  However, I can call to your attention two books that provide different views from those available in the financial media. The Aftershock Investor ...Read full article...

Perhaps you haven’t heard about the Bundy Ranch confrontation if you live outside the United States or have been sleeping under a rock for the past 3 weeks. Perhaps you did hear or read about it, but because of the amount of disinformation, guesstimates and rumors it became difficult to ...Read full article...

US Cold War Propaganda: How the CIA Made Dr. Zhivago into a Weapon

American Cold War propaganda had little, if anything, to do with the collapse of the Soviet Union.  However, by dramatizing Soviet mendacity it made the world blind to Washington’s mendacity. When Soviet authorities refused to publish prominent Soviet writer Boris Pasternak’s masterpiece, Dr. Zhivago, the CIA turned it into a propaganda coup.  An Italian journalist and Communist Party member learned of the suppressed manuscript and offered to take the ...Read full article...
