Memorial Day Is A Hoax

Memorial Day commemorates soldiers killed in war. We are told that the war dead died for us and our freedom. US Marine General Smedley Butler challenged this view. He said that our soldiers died for the profits of the bankers, Wall Street, Standard Oil, and the United Fruit Company. Here is an excerpt from a speech that he gave in 1933: War is just a racket. A racket is ...Read full article...

Heading Toward Financial Maidan in Ukraine?

Ukraine’s economy is a sinkhole of economic Depression. It’s teetering toward collapse. Its Q I GDP plunged 17.6% year-over-year. It’s down 6.1% from Q IV 2014. Ten of the last 11 quarters saw economic contraction. Kiev depends on outside aid to keep operating. Inflation is out-of-control. The Financial Times reported it reaching 61% in April. Its hryvnia currency is headed toward becoming worthless toilet paper. It’s worth less than ...Read full article...

Ecuador socializes Private Pension Funds

Workers will be obligated to surrender their life savings to the government.

Israeli Defense Minister Threatens to Nuke Iran

Ya’alon suggested premeditated war is morally right. Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon is a holdover from Netanyahu’s previous extremist coalition regime. He’s part of Israel’s lunatic fringe running things. He addressed a Shurat Hadin (Israel Law Center) conference in Jerusalem titled Toward a New Law of War. The organization includes anti-Palestinian Israeli lawyers advocating judicial action worldwide to absolve Israeli war crimes. It conducts irresponsible law suits.

Russia Calls for International Resolution of Yemen War

Millions of Yemenis desperately need aid not forthcoming or arriving in woefully inadequate amounts. Obama’s war on Yemen using Saudi and other regional rogue states as convenient proxies continues after nearly eight weeks. Riaydh’s 3-day May 17 – 19 sham peace conference was thinly veiled PR subterfuge. Terror-bombing and offshore shelling slowed. It didn’t stop. On Wednesday, it resumed full-force. Civilian neighbors and infrastructure as well as other nonmilitary ...Read full article...

Ukraine: A Cancer in Europe’s Heartland

Ukraine is an example of what happens when lunatics run the asylum. The country is a US-installed Nazi-infested fascist police state headed by an illegitimate anointed oligarch mega-crook. It tolerates no opposition. Free expression is banned. Independent journalists risk harassment, assault, arrest, imprisonment, even death. Ukraine is a dagger pointed at Russia’s heartland. It’s bankrupt. It’s perhaps headed toward defaulting on its debt. It declared a moratorium on repayments, ...Read full article...

Washington Wants War on Donbass

John Kerry and Victoria Nuland are warriors, not peacemakers – neocons masquerading as diplomats. They deplore peace. They live by the sword. They foster violence and instability worldwide. Last week, Nuland was in Kiev meeting with its illegitimate officials – discussing revved up war on Donbas when Obama OKs it. On Monday, she was in Moscow meeting with Russian officials. Discussion focused on Ukraine. Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin ...Read full article...

Is Washington Coming To Its Senses?

There is much speculation about US Secretary of State John Kerry’s rush visit to Russia in the wake of Russia’s successful Victory Day celebration on May 9.

As time passes we will find out why Kerry was snubbing Putin on May 9 and ...Read full article...

Ukraine’s Latest Big Lie

Ukraine’s regime is a US-installed Nazi-infested fascist police state. Rogue states have no credibility whatever. Ukraine’s regime is a US-installed Nazi-infested fascist police state. It’s a serial lying machine.

Raucous Swearing In of Israel’s New Ruling Coalition

It’s the most extremist in Israel’s history. It’s not a legitimate government of, by and for all Israelis equitably. It’s polar opposite. It’s a racist, apartheid, fascist coalition headed by Netanyahu’s Likud party in bed with fundamentalist religious zealots. It bested other parties with only 25% support. So-called Israeli democracy is farcical, an illusion. None whatever exists. Palestinian MKs are impotent – potted plants with no policymaking say whatever, ...Read full article...
