America is Truly a Country Run for the Few

The Bureau of Labor Statistics headline this morning reads:  “Payroll employment increases by 248,000 in September; unemployment rate declines to 5.9%.” How can this be?  US corporations are investing in buying back their own stocks, not in new business ventures that produce new jobs. According to the Census Bureau’s Poverty Report, US real median family income has declined to the level of twenty years ago.    Consumer credit and ...Read full article...

Fear-Mongering Ahead of Another US False Flag?

Merriam-Webster calls them “deliberate gross distortion(s) of the truth used especially as a propaganda tactic.” Wikipedia says they’re “covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities.” Official reports hype Big Lies. MSM scoundrels regurgitate them. Truth is systematically buried. ...Read full article...

Sanctions Regime Directed against Russia is Part of a US-NATO Military Agenda

Iraq: Towards the Creation of a US Sponsored Islamist Caliphate

Fake Employment Statistics: More Phantom Jobs Created in America

Last April I saw a report that 83% of May’s college graduates did not have a job. I remarked that in my day most of us had 2 or 3 jobs or graduate school offers before we graduated. The latest payroll jobs report issued on June 6 proves that the April report was true. My opinion, schooled in part by John Williams’ very precise reports on Shadowstats.com, is that ...Read full article...

“Americans are the New Master Race”

At West Point Obama told us, to the applause of West Point cadets, that “American exceptionalism” is a doctrine that justifies whatever Washington does.  If Washington violates domestic and international law by torturing “detainees” or violates the Nuremberg standard by invading countries that have undertaken no hostile action ...Read full article...
