The Swiss will remain slaves of commercial banks

Three-quarters of voters have said no to a vote that would allow the Swiss central bank to create paper money. Creating money from thin air has been a prerogative of commercial banks for over a century. Saying no to controlling their own money issuance reflects great ignorance. However, the Swiss rejected an initiative that would have given the National Bank of Switzerland (BNS) full and exclusive powers in matters ...Read full article...

Trump to G7: I’ll let go when you do

Canada alone has over 300% tariffs on US products and Europe has a similar amount.  The G-7 summit in the Canadian resort of La Malbaie has left at least two photos that serve as a metaphor to describe what seems to have happened inside. One of them is the handshake between Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron, so hard on the part of the Frenchman that his thumb was marked ...Read full article...

Argentina is now owned by the IMF

Venezuela, Costa Rica and Argentina are three nations that suffer due to their massive debt with foreign banks. Countries all over Latin America are running out of time to curb, once and for all, their growing public debts and fiscal deficits, yet, none of those countries seem to know, or simply refuse to recognize, that the largest source of debt slavery is foreign loans from supranational banking cartels. Venezuela, Costa ...Read full article...

Libya according to the UN vs the harsh reality

Despite the good will of some of the participants, the Paris conference for Libya did not have the desired effects. This can be explained by the double language of NATO and the United Nations, who are pretending to want to stabilise the country while their actions in fact continue the Cebrowski plan for the destruction of state structures. The spectacle in Paris was steeped in a profound ignorance of ...Read full article...

Greedy World “leaders” can´t agree on Trade or anything else

In March 2014, G8 member states expelled Russia over nonexistent “aggression” in Ukraine, along with Crimea’s reunification with the Russian Federation, correcting a historic mistake. On Monday, Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said “this forum has been losing its importance because given the changing political and economic situation, other platforms, such as the G20, where Russia is an active member, have been becoming more important.” Last April, Kremlin envoy to ...Read full article...

¿Por qué Argentina no jugó con Israel?

La propaganda israelí intentó poner cara de valiente a una importante bofetada, afirmando falsamente que el partido cancelado fue por amenazas a los futbolistas argentinos. Respondiendo a la campaña de activistas de BDS, partidarios de los derechos humanos palestinos, futbolistas argentinos y otros, destacando los terribles crímenes israelíes contra pacíficos manifestantes de Gaza, cancelaron lo que se calificó como un partido amistoso con Israel. Originalmente programado en Haifa, se ...Read full article...

Es contra la ley en California ducharse y lavar la ropa en el mismo día

El gobernador Jerry Brown se jubila, pero no antes de aprobar algunas leyes draconianas como regalos de despedida para California. Dos proyectos de ley se promulgaron el jueves de la semana pasada para “ayudar a que California “esté mejor preparada para futuras sequías y los efectos del cambio climático”. Los estándares obligatorios de conservación del agua serán permanentes, de acuerdo con su redacción, y no solo para uso en ...Read full article...

It’s Against the Law in California to Shower and Do Laundry on the Same Day

Governor Jerry Brown is retiring but not before he passes a few draconian laws as parting gifts for California. Two bills were signed into law on Thursday of last week to “help California be better prepared for future droughts and the effects of climate change.” The mandatory water conservation standards will be permanent, according to their wording, and not just for use in times of crisis. To make a ...Read full article...

Si votar cambiara algo, ya lo habrían hecho ilegal

Las sociedades occidentales ofrecen pruebas de que votar no tiene mucho valor, y que cuando votar realmente desafía el Poder, el voto es anulado. La democracia como debería ser es pura fantasía en la mayoría de los países, especialmente en Estados Unidos, Europa e Israel: la dureza neoliberal triunfa sobre la justicia social. La temible activista política y social, Emma Goldman (1869 – 1940) una vez explicó: “Si votar ...Read full article...

La Era de la Democracia se acerca a su Fin

La era democracia occidental es una mentira. Sea lo que sea que haya sido, ahora yace bajo las aguas del dominio corporativo. Los pueblos europeos cuyos gobiernos fueron pagados para vender la soberanía de sus naciones a la UE están experimentando grandes dificultades para que se les permita gobernarse a sí mismos. Como resultado de la frustración de los italianos con la élite egoísta que ha gobernado Italia durante ...Read full article...

The Democratic Era is approaching its End

Western democratic states have been dying for a long time. The European peoples whose governments were paid to sell out the sovereignty of their nations to the EU are experiencing great difficulties in being permitted to govern themselves. As the result of Italians’ frustration with the self-serving elite who have ruled Italy for decades, the recent democratic elections in Italy brought to power two anti-establishment political parties, Five-Star and ...Read full article...

Rajoy refuses to leave while the PP prepares to obstruct

Mariano Rajoy went from being the President who had a budget and stability to attending his own political funeral at the inauguration of his rival Pedro Sánchez.  The change in presidents is a drastic and unexpected one that opens many questions about what will be the future of the former president and what may happen in the PP and its parliamentary group. Although there are no certainties, various PP ...Read full article...

There is no Crisis in Catalonia, the crisis is in Spain

While in Catalonia people already voted for independence, in Spain, voters trust neither the current leader nor his substitute. Over the past five years, the mainstream media in Spain and Europe have described the struggle between the legally elected government of Catalonia and its equivalent in Madrid as a “Catalan crisis”. However, as this week’s events have proven, there is no crisis in Catalonia, but there is indeed a crisis ...Read full article...

Lo que realmente se definía en la elección de Venezuela

Si bien la abstención registrada en la elección presidencial que acaba de realizarse en Venezuela no permitiría validar formalmente el carácter democrático de la victoria de Nicolás Maduro, el índice de participación, en plena guerra económica, es de hecho más que suficiente para demostrar el apoyo popular a las instituciones de la República Bolivariana. Porque es importante entender que, más que el mantenimiento o no de los chavistas en el poder, lo que realmente estaba en juego era el futuro mismo de ...Read full article...

The hidden stakes behind Venezuela’s presidential election

Formally speaking, the level of abstention during the Presidential election in Venezuela does not allow us to validate the democratic character of the victory of Nicolás Maduro. However, the amount of participation is easily sufficient, in the middle of an economic war, to illustrate popular support for national institutions. Indeed, far more than the Chàvists’ hold on power, what was in play was the future of the country faced ...Read full article...
