The Construction Of An Harmonious World, Sustained Peace And Joint Prosperity

By Mike Robinson UK Column 21 November 2014 For years now, I have been arguing in articles and on the UK Column News programme that the western financial system is terminally bankrupt. I am far from alone in that assessment, despite claims from politicians and so-called mainstream economic commentators that “no-one saw it coming”. Not only did I and many others see it coming, we now argue that what ...Read full article...

The World needs Freedom, not Democracy

By Joe Sobran Fitzgerald Griffin Foundation November 18, 2014 During turbulent times like the present, Americans make fervent appeals to “democracy,” which they equate with freedom. President Bush is eager to impose democracy on Iraq and other countries whose governments he disapproves of. Woodrow Wilson only wanted to “make the world safe for democracy”: Bush wants to make the whole world democratic. Everyone seems to take for granted that ...Read full article...

OLP seeks European support for a Free Palestinian State

BRUSSELS - Palestinian officials want the support of the European Union to advance negotiations with Israel and ensure that it is recognized by the international community as the State of Palestine. A delegation of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) met this Friday in Brussels with various members of the European Parliament calling on the EU to support the international recognition of Palestine as a state. The two Palestinian representatives, ...Read full article...

Israeli IDF attempt to Arrest two-year old Palestinian

West Bank communities and East Jerusalem remain on the boil after Israeli forces attack multiple villages. Just when you think things can’t get worse, they do. Israel finds new ways to surprise. Couched in Big Lies. A daily litany burying hard truths. Many too outrageous too ignore. Wrongdoing writ large. Terrorism is what they do, not us. On November 11, the Silwan, East Jerusalem-based Wadi Hilweh Information Center (WHIC) ...Read full article...

Corporate Tax Avoidance Heaven in the Heart of Europe

The recent leak by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), labeled Luxleaks, has revealed the enormous gravity and proportions of a phenomenon that is well-known by everyone: corporate tax avoidance. The decline in public funds do to the non-payment of taxes by large multinational corporations is greater than first thought, and its gravity is proportionally worse in developing countries. Action Aid estimates that developing nations lose about 104,000 million ...Read full article...

Fake Bin Laden Narrative is a Big Blockbuster in ‘Alternative’ Media

RT, one of my favorite news sources, has fallen for a fake story put out by the Pentagon to support the fantasy story that a SEAL team killed Osama bin Laden, who died a second time in Abbottabad, Pakistan, a decade after his first death from illness and disease.  http://rt.com/usa/202895-navy-seal-shot-binladen/   This fake story together with the fake movie and the fake book by an alleged SEAL team member is the ...Read full article...

Blaming Victims: Official Israeli Policy

Decades of Israeli state terror takes its toll. Blow back follows. In various forms. Victims enraged about Israeli ruthlessness react with just cause. Whatever ways they can. Some peacefully. By protesting, marching and/or denouncing repressive treatment publicly. Others violently. Perhaps out of longstanding pent up frustration. A ticking time bomb ready to explode. On Wednesday, Israeli police spokeswoman Luba Samri said “(a) commercial vehicle hit and ran over pedestrians ...Read full article...

Poroshenko wants to Eliminate ‘self-proclaimed Republic’ Status in Ukraine

The president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, summoned his security council on Tuesday to discuss a change of strategy in the east of the country after the elections in the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk successfully elected their representatives. Poroshenko explained that the Government needs to make “adjustments” in the ‘roadmap’ which he set after his victory in the presidential elections on May 25. The US-supported Ukrainian leader has ...Read full article...

Israel: Traditionally a Human Rights Violator

The UN has accused Israel of repeatedly, steadily and in many areas violated the rights of the Palestinians and asked the Israeli government to change its behavior and respect international law. The Human Rights Committee of the United Nations released its final conclusions on Israel’s violation of human rights, in which it details the many violations of the fundamental laws that protect the rights of the Palestinians. The first point criticized by ...Read full article...

UN Gaza War Inquiry: Hold the Cheers

On October 21, Reuters headlined “UN chief says moving ahead with Gaza war inquiry.” “UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Tuesday he was setting up an investigation into attacks on United Nations facilities during Israel’s recent war against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip and the use of UN sites to store weapons.” Ban is a notorious imperial stooge. His credibility is sorely lacking. He supports powerful interests. He ...Read full article...

Turkey Murders Press TV Reporter Serena Shim

Turkey reflects rogue state governance. It’s a NATO member. Part of Washington’s war on Syria. Partnering with US crimes. Training Islamic State fighters. Doing so covertly on its territory. Smuggling them lawlessly cross-border against Assad. Stop NATO founder/editor Rick Rozoff said earlier: “If confirmation was required that a neo-Ottoman Turkey is determined to reassert (its regional) influence gained 700 years before and lost a century ago and…doing so as ...Read full article...

Ebola Hysteria fueled by unfounded Media Reports

About fifty of the approximately 150 people who had been in direct or indirect contact with Eric Duncan Thomas, the Liberian man who died of Ebola in that city, and the two infected nurses who provided care and who were in direct contact with Thomas, completed their 21 day period of quarantine without having developed the disease, health officials reported. Despite having had only one credible case of Ebola, Texas ...Read full article...

Local Farming is Key to Curbing World Hunger

In spite of Big Agra’s claim that GMO foods are a necessity to keep the world well fed, the Food and Agriculture Organization seems to think differently. Family farms are the “backbone” in the fight against hunger and to achieve sustainable rural development. This is the conclusion of the annual report released today by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). In its report on “The State of ...Read full article...

Biased Human Rights Report on Ukraine

Former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay is gone. She served from September 2008 through August 2014. She won’t be missed. She disgraced the office she held. She lacked credibility altogether. She served Western interests. She was a reliable imperial tool. She buried truth. She irresponsibly bashed Assad. She blamed him for Western-sponsored death squad crimes. She published misinformation on Obama’s war on Syria. She supported illegitimate ...Read full article...

Ultimatum to Heads of State: Stop Poisoning Us!

For the past four years, I have waged a David against Goliath battle that is without precedent in human history. The objective is to bring down the monster that the system of depopulation and globalization set up at the end of World War II has become. Paradoxically, this system is for the preservation of international peace but the structural violence committed within nations to prevent war between nations has ...Read full article...
