Why the Refugee Crisis?

Thousands of refugees and asylum seekers head for safe havens daily – a human flood entering Europe, risking life and limb to get there. Why? Washington bears full responsibility.

Israel’s War on Gazan Children

Since 2006, Israel murdered well over 1,000 Palestinian children – acts of cold, calculated willful murder. A new Defense for Children International-Palestine (DCI-P) report is damning, providing more evidence of shocking Israeli war crimes – titled “Operative Protective Edge: A War Waged on Gaza’s Children.” Saying Israeli aggression killed over 2,250 Palestinians, mostly civilians, including 547 children.

America’s “war on terror” is a complete hoax. It’s a war OF terror on humanity. Washington actively recruits their fighters along with other takfiri elements. Official US claims about wanting to degrade and defeat ISIS are a complete fabrication.

Alexis Tsipras: A Judas all along

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras faked his progressive credentials. He was a Judas all along – pretending opposition to austerity to get elected, planning betrayal straightaway in office. Former Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis maintains a web site – posting his “comments for the post-2008 world.” On August 18, he headlined “Bailout deal allows Greek oligarchs to maintain grip,” saying: Terms lawmakers agreed to lets oligarchs dominating Greek economic sectors ...Read full article...

Obama’s war on Venezuela

Endless US hot wars rage in multiple theaters. Covert destabilizing ones target numerous other countries. Toppling Venezuela’s government has been a US objective since Chavez took office in February 1999 – so far not achieved but ongoing without letup. Occasional US soft diplomatic talk is pure deception – including John Kerry saying Washington “seek(s) ways to improve a historically strong relationship” on the occasion of Venezuela’s July 5 independence ...Read full article...

Central Banks have become a corrupting force

Are we witnessing the corruption of central banks? Are we observing the money-creating powers of central banks being used to drive up prices in the stock market for the benefit of the mega-rich? These questions came to mind when we learned that the central bank of Switzerland, the Swiss National Bank, purchased 3,300,000 shares of Apple stock in the first quarter of this year, adding 500,000 shares in the ...Read full article...

Insouciance Rules The West

Europe is being overrun by refugees from Washington’s, and Israel’s, hegemonic policies in the Middle East and North Africa that are resulting in the slaughter of massive numbers of civilians. The inflows are so heavy that European governments are squabbling among themselves about who is to take the refugees. Hungary is considering constructing a fence, like the US and Israel, to keep out the undesirables. Everywhere in the Western ...Read full article...

Federal Reserve Bank behind Recessions, Depressions

(Mises.org) The US Federal Reserve is playing with the idea of raising interest rates, possibly as early as September this year. After a six-year period of virtually zero interest rates, a ramping up of borrowing costs will certainly have tremendous consequences. It will be like taking away the punch bowl on which all the party fun rests. Low Central Bank Rates have been Fueling Asset Price Inflation The current ...Read full article...

Potential toxic effects of glyphosate and its commercial formulations below regulatory limits

(ScienceDirect.com) We have reviewed the toxic effects of glyphosate and its commercial formulations. Glyphosate-based herbicides cause teratogenic, tumorigenic and hepatorenal effects. These effects could be explained by endocrine disruption and oxidative stress. Some effects were detected in the range of the recommended acceptable daily intake. Current evidence presented raises concerns and indicates the need for further studies. Glyphosate-based herbicides (GlyBH), including Roundup, are the most widely used pesticides worldwide. ...Read full article...

Israel v. the World on Iran Nuclear Deal

The entire free world supports the Iran nuclear deal – a tension reducing agreement lessening (not eliminating) the chance for greater regional war. Israel’s opposition makes it more of a pariah state than already. It’s posture has nothing to do with a so-called Iranian threat. None whatever exists. Tehran is committed to regional peace and stability. It urges a nuclear free world. Israel and America and America are the ...Read full article...

Gullible Americans Forever

“Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.” ...Read full article...
