Catalonia and Scotland Awaken Sovereignty Dream in Quebec

Scottish independence referendum and the recently held Diada in Catalonia have awakened the spirits of melancholy in Quebec nationalism. Defeated at the polls last April, the independence of Quebec looks to Scotland with a mixture of envy and admiration. In the French speaking region the possibility of a third consultation seems to be far away. “The sky is gray,” says Bernard Landry, a veteran politician from the Québécois Party, who ...Read full article...

9/11 After Thirteen Years: Continuous Warfare, Police State, Endless Falsehoods

The tragedy of September 11, 2001, goes far beyond the deaths of those who died in the towers and the deaths of firefighters and first responders who succumbed to illnesses caused by inhalation of toxic dust.  For thirteen years a new generation of Americans has been born into the 9/11 myth that has been used to create the American warfare/police state. The corrupt Bush and Obama regimes used 9/11 ...Read full article...

The Ukraine Crisis Remains Unresolved

Some Western commentators interpret the cease fire in Ukraine obtained by President Putin as a victory for Russia. The reasoning is that the cease fire leaves Ukraine with disputed borders, which rules out Ukraine’s membership in NATO.   But will the cease fire hold?  The right-wing Kiev militias, whose members often wear nazi insignias, are not under Kiev’s complete control.  These militias can easily violate the cease fire, and there ...Read full article...

Washington and its NATO and EU Vassals are Insane

Herbert E. Meyer, a nutcase who was a special assistant to the CIA director for a period during the Reagan administration, has penned an article calling for Russian President Putin’s assassination. If we have “ to get him out of the Kremlin feet-first with a bullet hole in the back of his head, that would be okay with us.”  http://www.americanthinker.com/2014/08/how_to_solve_the_putin_problem.html  As the crazed Meyer illustrates, the insanity that Washington has ...Read full article...

It is Time to rid Ourselves of the Existing Hierarchies of Power

We are governed and encircled by mass murderers who are far more perverse, destructive and dangerous than any of the tyrants of our history. The origin and make-up of the coalition of forces and individuals who commit mass murder on an unprecedented scale show us that there is a “hidden kinship between the vices of even the most vicious and the virtues of even the most upright”. They also ...Read full article...

“We Are Not Enemies on Account of Religion, our Enemy Is the Occupation” says Hamas Leader

Israel’s Operation Protective Edge (OPE) was well-planned premeditated aggression. It had nothing to do with Hamas rockets. It wasn’t about crushing Palestine’s legitimate government. Israel needs enemies. When none exist, they’re invented. They’re blamed for Israel’s crimes. OPE was about preventing Palestinian self-determination. It was to maintain occupation harshness. It was to keep stealing Palestinian land. It was to expand settlements exponentially. It was to control all valued parts ...Read full article...

University of Illinois Fired Professor for Criticizing Israel

Criticizing Israel is the third rail in American politics, the major media and academia. Cynthia McKinney twice lost her congressional seat in 2002 and 2006. Supporting Palestinian rights was costly. DePaul University denied Norman Finkelstein tenure for his outspokenness and books like “The Holocaust Industry.” It did so despite calling him “a prolific scholar and an outstanding teacher.” It went further. It cancelled his classes. It placed him on ...Read full article...

Ukraine Crisis Continues

Having served Washington’s propaganda purposes, the downed Malaysian airliner and the alleged Russian armored column that entered Ukraine and was allegedly destroyed have dropped out of the news even though both stories remain completely and totally unresolved. Washington’s stooge government in Ukraine has not released the records of communications between Ukrainian air traffic control and Malaysian flight 17, and Washington has not released the photos from its satellite which ...Read full article...

Russia: Waging Peace in Ukraine

Throughout months of conflict in Southeastern Ukraine, Russia has gone all-out to resolve things diplomatically. Yet Putin bashing never quits. He’s viciously demonized. Truth is buried. Facts are conveniently twisted. He’s wrongfully accused of supplying weapons and fighters to aid Southeastern Ukrainian anti-government forces’ liberating struggle. His spokesman, Dmitri Peskov, categorically denies Russia’s involvement. “We have said repeatedly that no equipment is being supplied there,” he said. No Russian ...Read full article...

American-appointed Thugs Never Want to Leave Power

“I’m still the head of government,” said a defiant Nuri al Maliki, who refuses to accept his replacement as Prime Minister of Iraq. Maliki has called for the Federal Court to rule before giving way to Haider al Abadi, to whom President Fuad Masum ordered last Monday to form a new Executive. However, the abandonment of his allies, including Iran, makes it unlikely that the al-Maliki’s stubbornness will survive the ...Read full article...

Putin readies Russia to Retaliate against the West

Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his government to “prepare response measures” against sanctions imposed on his country by the EU and the United States of America as well as to plan for a humanitarian intervention in Ukraine. “I have already given the order today,” said the leader of the Kremlin, who added that “political pressure instruments are unacceptable to the economy, because they contradict all norms and rules.” Putin said ...Read full article...
