33 Ways to Earn a Living Without a Traditional Job

Most people these days do not own their time. They have to abide by someone else’s schedule, accept the amount of money that an employer is willing to pay and organize their lifestyles around those hours, allotted money, and rules. When people of my generation were growing up, many of our parents worked at the same job for decades, providing stability for us and our siblings. Times have changed, though. ...Read full article...

Bring Back The Cold War

Pundits have declared a “New Cold War.” If only! The Cold War was a time when leaders focused on reducing tensions between nuclear powers. What we have today is much more dangerous: Washington’s reckless and irresponsible aggression toward the other major nuclear powers, Russia and China. During my lifetime American presidents worked to defuse tensions with Russia. President John F. Kennedy worked with Khrushchev to defuse the Cuban Missile ...Read full article...

The United States’ Fifteen years of Crimes after 9/11

LEA ESTE ARTÍCULO EN ESPAÑOL The United States and their allies commemorated the 15-year anniversary of 9/11. For Thierry Meyssan, it’s the occasion to take an honest look at Washington’s policies since that date – it is not a pretty picture. There are two ways of looking at it – either the White House’s version of the 9/11 attacks is correct, in which case their response has been particularly ...Read full article...

Are You Prepped for a Pandemic?

If the news announced tomorrow that a pandemic had begun and that your area, in particular, was at risk, would you be prepared? It was only a couple of years ago that Ebola arrived on the shores of the United States. By sheer luck (certainly not by a well-managed response) the virus was contained. I had been prepping for quite some time, and had dealt with lengthy power outages, ...Read full article...

A Progressive Presidential Platform worth Supporting

America’s political process is too corrupted to fix. Scattered reforms won’t work. Elections are farcical when held – worthless exercises maintaining status quo business as usual. Believing otherwise is self-delusion. Republican and Democrats are virtual cardboard cutouts of each other, differing largely in style and rhetoric, in lockstep on all issues mattering most, no matter how much they try pretending otherwise – this year, Clinton the most dangerous of ...Read full article...

The Tide is Turning: The Official Story Is Now The Conspiracy Theory

In a few days it will be the 15th anniversary of 9/11, and this November 13 will be the 53rd anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. These two state crimes against democracy destroyed American democracy, accountable government, and the Constitution’s protections of civil liberty. Years after the damage done by these events the American people no longer believe the official stories. Neither does ...Read full article...

CIA “Failed” Turkey Coup Lays Groundwork for Broader Middle East War?

In mid-July, President Erdogan pointed his finger at the CIA, accusing US intelligence of having supported a failed coup directed against his government. Turkish officials pointed to a deterioration of US-Turkey relations following Washington’s refusal to extradite Fethullah Gülen, the alleged architect of the failed coup. Erdogan’s Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag was categorical: “If the US does not deliver (Gulen), they will sacrifice relations with Turkey for the sake of a terrorist”  ...Read full article...

The Strategies of Global Warfare: War with China and Russia?

It is important to focus on Southeast Asia and East Asia in a broader geopolitical context. China, North Korea as well as Russia are potential targets under Obama’s “Pivot to Asia”, involving the combined threat of missile deployments, naval power and pre-emptive nuclear war. We are not dealing with piecemeal military endeavors. The regional Asia-Pacific military agenda under the auspices of US Pacific Command (USPACOM) is part of a global ...Read full article...

America’s “Humanitarian War” against the World threatens the Future of Humanity

So-called Humanitarian War is not an inevitable process. War can be prevented through action. The legitimacy of the war must be addressed.  Historically, science has supported the development of the weapons industry and the war economy. “Science for Peace” indelibly requires reversing the logic whereby commissioned  scientific endeavors are directed towards supporting what President Eisenhower called “The Military Industrial Complex”. What is consequently required is a massive redirection of ...Read full article...

The Corporate Funding of Social Activism: Rockefeller, Ford Foundations Behind World Social Forum

This year the World Social Forum is being held in Montreal, regrouping committed social activism, anti-war collectives and  prominent intellectuals. Most of the participants are unaware that the WSF is funded by corporate foundations including Ford, Rockefeller, Tides, et al.  Much of this funding is channelled to the WSF organizers under the helm of the WSF International Council. This is an issue which has been raised on numerous occasions with progressive organizations and WSF ...Read full article...

The US is the Number One Torturer of Children

Human Rights Watch (HRW) has just released its report,  “Extreme Measures: Abused  Children Detained As National Security Threats.” From my reading of the report, Israel and the US are the two worst abusers.  Boko Haram is a distant third. Which country is the worst abuser, Israel or the US?  Taking into account that the US is responsible for the violence in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria that has resulted in ...Read full article...

The Democratic Party no longer Exists

The Democratic Party that once was concerned with workers’ rights, the elderly, civil rights, and the constitutional protections of America liberty no longer exists. As the just completed Democratic presidential primaries and the Democratic presidential convention have clearly demonstrated, the United States now has two Republican parties in service to the One Percent. The organized Democrats–the Democratic National Committee–have shown themselves to be even more venal and corrupt than ...Read full article...

Make Sure Everyone Sees “Clinton Cash”

It’s no secret that I believe Hillary Clinton is the worst thing that has happened to American in decades. She has been proven to be a liar and a threat to national security. She doesn’t care about you, your family, or your troubles, whether you are a woman, a minority, or any other marginalized or presumably trodden-upon individual. Don’t be fooled by her grand speeches and political machine. If ...Read full article...

The Israeli Attack on the USS Liberty

For a number of years Admiral Thomas Moorer, former Chief of Naval Operations and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was my colleague at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Tom, after whom the F-14 Tomcat fighter is named, expressed to me his concern that US politics and foreign policy was in the clutches of Israel and that America was being led into war with the Arab ...Read full article...

How to Stay Safe When Chaos Erupts in America

This summer is like a movie about how corruption took down a once-great republic and sent it barreling toward civil war. It’s about how the powerful now use deadly robots to do their bidding and how two groups of people have been turned against each other at the whims of the wealthy and the powerful. It’s about chaos and  final straws and the shattering of our veneer of civility. When the rose-colored glasses get ripped ...Read full article...
