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...

Unemployment and Low Wage Employment in America

The March payroll jobs report released April 4 claims 192,000 new private sector jobs. Here is what John Williams has to say about the claim: “The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) deliberately publishes its seasonally-adjusted historical payroll-employment and household-survey (unemployment) data so that the numbers are neither consistent nor comparable with current headline reporting.  The upside revisions to the January and February monthly jobs gains, and the relatively strong ...Read full article...

Ukraine Crisis: How Much War Does Washington Want?

I doubt that the Ukraine crisis precipitated by Washington’s overthrow of the democratic government is over.  Washington has won the propaganda war everywhere outside of Russia and Ukraine itself. Within Ukraine people are aware that the coup has made them worse off.  The Crimea has already separated from the US puppet government in Kiev and rejoined Russia. Other parts of Russian Ukraine could follow. In Kiev itself where the ...Read full article...

Obama: Crimea Self-Determination Constitutes a “Threat To US National Security”

In his March 6 Executive Order, “Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine,” Obama declares that support for Crimean self-determination constitutes “an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.” http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2014/03/06/executive-order-blocking-property-certain-persons-contributing-situation Obama and the lawyers who drafted his executive order did not notice that the way ...Read full article...

Obama Regime’s Hypocrisy Sets New World Record

From the moment that Washington launched its orchestrated coup in Kiev, Washington has been accusing Russia of “intervening in Ukraine.”  This propaganda ploy succeeded.  The Western presstitute media reported (nonexistent) Russian intervention to the  exclusion of coverage of Washington’s obvious intervention. Having falsely accused Russia of invading Crimea, the Obama regime now demands that Russia interfere in Crimea and prevent the referendum set for next Sunday.  Unless Russia uses ...Read full article...

No Jobs, No Economy, No Prospects For Peace Or Life

Over the decades various administrations, seeking to improve their economic record, monkeyed with economic statistics to the point that the statistics are no longer meaningful. According to Friday’s (March 7) payroll jobs report, the US economy created 175,000 new jobs in February. If you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I’ll let you have at a good price. Even if 175,000 jobs were created in February–remember ...Read full article...

Obama Comes Out Against Self-Determination for Crimea

The White House Fool has repeatedly declared erroneously that it is “against international law” for Crimea to exercise self-determination. Self-determination, as used by Washington, is a propaganda term that serves Washington’s empire but is not permissible for real people to exercise. On March 6 Obama telephoned Putin to tell the Russian President again that only Washington has the right to interfere in Ukraine and to insist against all logic ...Read full article...

Inequality Grows in Large American Cities

As it often happens, lack of better living conditions in less urbanized areas results in massive migration to large cities, where most newcomers become victims of urban inequality. The growing income inequality in America has its greatest reflection in large cities, where the pressing income gap between rich and poor becomes more palpable and real. Inequality is such a deep problem that even Barack Obama labeled it as “the greatest challenge of our time”. The ...Read full article...

American Stasi Police State Staring Us In The Face

The US media is on guard, prepared at an instance’s notice to suppress free speech. American taxpayers have built an entire city in Virginia so that the Pentagon,  can practice occupying American cities and putting down protests by US citizens. This fake city is the training ground for the doctrine outlined in a leaked US Army document  that describes how soldiers are to be trained to put down domestic ...Read full article...

In the U.S. the Gestapo Has Replaced the Rule of Law

“Concentration camps are a likely future reality for Americans”, according to Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. RT is the best English language news source available to Americans. On January 29, RT published a photo of 5 presidential appointees lying through their teeth to Congress. All five of these Gestapo wannabes are in violation of their oath of office to protect the Constitution of the United States. They have relentlessly ...Read full article...

Obama Maintains a State of National Emergency

No threat whatever exists. Alleged ones are fabricated. They’re fake. They used to enforce police state harshness. Fearmongering is longstanding US policy. So is bald-faced lying. At issue is supporting wealth, power, and privilege. It’s about advancing America’s imperium. One war after another follows. Permanent ones persist. So does police state ruthlessness. On September 14, 2001, George Bush issued Proclamation 7463: Declaration of National Emergency by Reason of Certain Terrorist ...Read full article...

Merry Christmas: US House and Senate pass NDAA 2014

While everyone is distracted with the holiday festivities, Congress has been hard at work, screwing us over in the name of national security. Yesterday the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act was fast-tracked through the Senate, with no time for discussion or amendments.  And you know, its Christmastime, so they just passed it so that they could recess for the holidays. The new version of the NDAA has already been ...Read full article...

Washington Has Discredited America. The “Obama Regime”, a Police State

Years ago when I described the George W. Bush regime as a police state, right-wing eyebrows were raised.  When I described the Obama regime as an even worse police state, liberals rolled their eyes.  Alas!  Now I am no longer controversial.  Everybody says it. According to the UK newspaper, The Guardian, the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, had an angry exchange with Obama in which Merkel compared Obama’s National ...Read full article...
