US-NATO Military Deployments, Economic Warfare, Goldman Sachs and the Next Financial Meltdown

What is the relationship between war in a military theater and “economic warfare”?  An act of war is invariably an economic undertaking which supports dominant corporate interests. The conduct of US-NATO military operations is carried out on behalf of powerful financial institutions.  US led wars in the Middle East under the humanitarian mantle of the “global war on terrorism” largely serve the interests of Wall Street, the Anglo-american oil conglomerates, the ...Read full article...

Unconstitutional Senate Intelligence Authorization Act

Freedom in America is being systematically destroyed one police state law at a time – with most people ignorant and/or indifferent about what happening. Washington’s criminal class is bipartisan – in lockstep against government representing everyone equitably and fairly, serving privileged interests only. S. Res. 1705: Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 compromises free expression and privacy rights already gravely eroded. If enacted, Section 603 will require online ...Read full article...

US wants Enhanced UN Peacekeeping Operations Serving Its Interests

So-called Blue Helmets don’t operate as officially mandated – “help(ing) countries torn by conflict create conditions for sustainable peace.” Their deployments aren’t benevolent. They don’t restore order, maintain peace or provide for the needs of local populations. Nor do they build confidence, enforce power sharing agreements, provide electoral support, aid reconstruction, uphold the rule of law, or help efforts toward economic and social development. They’re imperial enforcers. They do ...Read full article...

New ‘safety zone’ will be a launchpad for terrorism in Syria

NATO wants to place war refugees in a so-called safety zone from which anti-government forces, armed and funded by Turkey, NATO and the US, will attack civilians in Syria. Should Assad respond to those attacks launched from the safety zone, he will be accused of bombing the refugees, which will in turn build support for an open military intervention in the country. The Syrian National Coalition, the main opposition ...Read full article...

Unaccountable Killer Cops in America

US streets in minority communities are battlegrounds. The good news is more police killings make headlines though nowhere near as many as warranted. Justifiable public anger is noticeably more visible. The bad news is cops in America kill innocent (mostly Black) victims hundreds of times annually with impunity. Activist police brutality critic Sandra Bland was lawlessly arrested after being stopped for a dubious traffic violation. Waller County, TX police ...Read full article...

Falsifying History In Behalf Of Agendas

In an article on April 13 I used the so-called Civil War and the myths with which court historians have encumbered that war to show how history is falsified in order to serve agendas. I pointed out that it was a war of secession, not a civil war as the South was not fighting the North for control of the government in Washington. As for the matter of slavery, ...Read full article...

U.S. Congress Approves Greater Corporate Predation

On June 18, House members narrowly approved fast track Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) – using procedural gimmicks, bribes and heavy pressure, the usual way corrupt politicians operate. On June 23, Senate members followed suit. A cloture motion to end debate passed – clearing the way for a Wednesday vote expected to support TPA. Public Citizen President Robert Weissman commented saying: The usual “legislative contortions an gimmicks…hand(ed) (corporate predators) their ...Read full article...

US and Israeli ICC Prosecutions?

The International Criminal Court (ICC) was established to prosecute culpable individuals for crimes of war, against humanity and genocide. Its mandate calls for “end(ing) impunity for the perpetrators of the most serious crimes of concern.” US and Israeli officials are guilty of the highest of high crimes. Yet none of their officials ever were held accountable – not by their own courts or the ICC. The international body operates ...Read full article...

The Dangers of Genetically Engineered Trees

Corporations in the US and Brazil have requested government authorization to release hundreds of millions of genetically engineered eucalyptus trees for fuel and pulp. We have recently learned that the GE Loblolly Pine and Arctic Apple have been approved by the USDA. If communities do not learn about, organize and STOP the requested unrestricted release of 500 million GE eucalyptus trees or the Loblolly Pine, inhaled pollen could perhaps ...Read full article...

Press Freedom Banned in Ukraine

Ukraine is a US-installed Nazi-infested fascist police state. Press freedom is banned. Criticizing government policy risks arrest, torture, imprisonment or death. Last year, independent journalist/RT International stringer Graham Phillips received death threats. Right Sector thugs put a $10,000 bounty on his head. He was maliciously called a Russian spy. He was arrested, held incommunicado. Later freed, he’s lucky to be alive. So are Russian journalists Oleg Sidyankin and Marat ...Read full article...

China attracts plenty of interest to its Asian Development Bank

Even countries like the United States, which opossed China’s initiative from the the beginning, now want to participate. China took another step Tuesday to realize its dream of leading an Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, the first multilateral financial institution that will not be dominated by the United States or its allies. Today was the deadline given by China for interested partes to apply and more than 45 nations have ...Read full article...

NYT Editors Support Fascist Extremism

The same way Washington turns one country after another into dystopian wastelands – ravaging, destroying, and strip-mining them of everything of worth. Times editors mocked clear evidence of US culpability together with fascist Venezuelan elements. They ridiculed Maduro. Said he “ramble(ed) for hours about an international right-wing conspiracy to oust him…” Claimed “it’s clear that he would use any fabricated pretext to jail opposition leaders and crack down on ...Read full article...

Russia and the United States are already at War

Lavrov accused Washington of violating the United Nations Charter by failing to respect the independence and sovereignty of states and constantly interfering in the internal affairs of those nations. NEW YORK – Russia and the United States faced off Monday by launching harsh accusations at the United Nations Security Council. The U.N. body had a special meeting in to mark its 70th anniversary. During the meeting, Russia took the ...Read full article...

Whatever Became of Economists and the American Economy

According to the official economic fairy tale, the US economy has been in recovery since June 2009. This fairy tale supports America’s image as the safe haven, an image that keeps the dollar up, the stock market up, and interest rates down. It is an image that causes the massive numbers of unemployed Americans to blame themselves and not the mishandled economy. This fairy tale survives despite the fact ...Read full article...
