Optimism grows about the global economy

In contrast to reality ...Read full article...

Insanity Grips The Western World

Just as Karl Marx claimed that History had chosen the proletariat, neoconservatives claim that History has chosen America. Just as the Nazis proclaimed “Deutschland uber alles,” neoconservatives proclaim “America uber alles.” In September 2013 President Obama actually stood before the United Nations and declared, “I believe America is exceptional.” Germany’s political leaders and those in Great Britain, France, and throughout Europe, Canada, Australia, and Japan also believe that America ...Read full article...

Former Brazilian Minister: “PT stole too much”

Back in Fascist Canada

There is no place like home, unless home is no longer what it used to be. It is not pleasant to get back home when home is a place where free people are abused, attacked, harassed and intimidated. This is the experience author and activist Kevin Mugur Galalae went through this week at an airport checkpoint in Canada. The problem is that Mr. Galalae is not a criminal or ...Read full article...

Humanitarian Crisis Conditions in Yemen

Conditions were dire before Saudi terror-bombing began. Yemen is the region’s poorest country. Half the population is food insecure in normal times. Yemenis lack other essentials to life. Political stability is impossible without addressing humanitarian issues responsibly. Before Saudi aggression began, UN humanitarian coordinator for Yemen Ould Cheikh Ahmed said over 10 million Yemenis need food aid. Half of them face acute food shortages. Millions of children face malnutrition. ...Read full article...

Ecuador goes Old School on Sexual Education

Violence rages in El Salvador

Nothing remains from the gang truce that began in 2012 with the tacit acceptance by the Government and supported by the Organization of American States and the church. Peace lasted 15 months, during which the homicide rate dropped from 15 to five murders a day. Since early 2014, amid a tense atmosphere of conservative opinion against dialogue with the bands, the leftist cabinet of former President Mauricio Funes, was ...Read full article...

Corruption and Poverty govern over Latin America

Corruption is the great plague that invades many countries in Latin America and the world. It will be perceived more and more as the threat of economic crisis looms, which will cause even greater rejection of corrupt practices. Social and economic developments in Latin America over the past decade have failed to circumvent a harsh reality: 40% of the population is in vulnerable conditions. That is, the risk of ...Read full article...

America and Islamic Terrorists: Partners Against Peace

America is a killing machine. It gives rogue state ruthlessness new meaning. It’s a lying machine. Truth is strictly verboten. Big Lies consistently substitute. White House hyperbole claims victories against Islamic State fighters. Suppressed is what everyone needs to know. Washington actively recruits, funds, arms and directs these terrorists and likeminded groups. They’re used as US proxies – shock troops fighting America’s dirty wars, currently in Syria, Iraq and ...Read full article...

The Anthrax Coverup Exposed

Graeme MacQueen’s 2014 book, The 2001 Anthrax Deception: The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy, has been vindicated by the head of the FBI’s Anthrax Investigation. Four and one-half months ago I posted a review of MacQueen’s book. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/12/02/2001-anthrax-deception-case-domestic-conspiracy/. They hired government apologists, the despicable presstitute media, and the usual gullible patriots greeted the book with screams of “conspiracy theory.” In fact, MacQueen’s book was a carefully researched project that ...Read full article...

Israel Joins Obama’s War on Yemen

Obama terror-bombed Yemen throughout his tenure. He murdered hundreds of noncombatant men, women and children in cold blood. He’s at it again. He’s waging proxy war against Houthi rebels. He’s using rogue state regional allies to do his dirty work. They ousted illegitimately US-installed puppet Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. Israel quietly joined Obama’s dirty war. On March 22, Houthi leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi accused Washington and Israel of using Takfiri ...Read full article...
