The Israeli Invasion and Gaza’s Offshore Gas Fields

The military invasion of the Gaza Strip by Israeli Forces bears a direct relation to the control and ownership of strategic offshore gas reserves.  This is a war of conquest. Discovered in 2000, there are extensive gas reserves off the Gaza coastline.  British Gas (BG Group) and its partner, the Athens based Consolidated Contractors International Company (CCC) owned by Lebanon’s Sabbagh and Koury families, were granted oil ...Read full article...

Massive Pentagon Waste, Fraud and Grand Theft

teveLongstanding Pentagon operations reflect a black hole of unaccountability. Reuters published a two-part report. In July, it discussed the Defense Department’s “payroll quagmire.” It’s bureaucracy is stifling. It’s “unyielding,” said Reuters. Active duty and retired military personal are routinely cheated. Pay errors are widespread. Correcting “or just explaining them can test even the most persistent soldiers.” Weeks or months pass without resolution. Some personnel are cheated on pay. Others ...Read full article...

Psychiatric Drugs, Cyberspace and “Digital Indoctrination”

Greg Guma Global Research 11 November 2013 Brain-altering drugs and digital “indoctrination” pose a potential threat not only to the stability of many individuals but of society itself. At least 10 percent of all Americans over six-years-old are on antidepressants. That’s more than 35 million people, double the number from less than two decades ago. Anti-psychotics have meanwhile eclipsed cholesterol treatments as the country’s fastest selling and most profitable ...Read full article...

Is There an Alternative to Plundering the Earth?

Is there an alternative to making war? Is there an alternative to destroying the planet? No one asks these questions because they seem absurd. Yet, no one can escape them either. Until the onslaught of the global economic crisis, the motto of so-called “neoliberalism” was TINA: “There Is No Alternative!” No alternative to “neoliberal globalization”? No alternative to the unfettered “free market” economy? What Is “Neoliberal Globalization”? Let us ...Read full article...

America’s Global Gulag: Challenging Wrongful Convictions

Many thousands of political prisoners languish in America’s global gulag. They do so unjustly. War on terror victims increased earlier numbers. Muslims are mostly affected. They’re wrongfully vilified. They’re persecuted for their faith and ethnicity. At times it’s for their activism, prominence and/or charity. They committed no crimes. They continue being hunted down, rounded up, detained indefinitely, isolated, denied all rights, convicted on bogus charges, and imprisoned longterm. Two ...Read full article...

Whitewashing Crime in Israel

Whitewashing it in high places doesn’t surprise. Israeli injustice is longstanding. It’s systemic. Avigdor Lieberman’s acquittal on serious charges is the latest example. Imagine. Palestinian children accused of stone throwing are detained, isolated, interrogated, intimidated, terrorized, fined and at times imprisoned. It’s standard practice whether or not they did anything. Lieberman reflects the worst of Israeli politics. He’s a former nightclub bouncer. He’s an ultranationalist extremist. He represents Israel’s ...Read full article...

Is American Unlimited Espionage the bait for total Internet control?

The Elites’ Strange Plot to Take Over the World

One World Government and “The Atlantic Union” The idea of a country seems pretty simple. I live in America, and I’m an American. She lives in France, and she is French. The Americans have a president who is their leader, the British have a prime minister, the French have their own president, and so forth. But the way political decision-making around security issues ricochets around the world, from Western ...Read full article...

PRISM, XKeyscore and the Five Eyes of a global spying grid

For many people, Edward Snowden’s revelations on the NSA spying are “not news”. Some say that people had already warned about it in the past; others say that everyone already knew. So why did Snowden’s revelations cause such an uproar? First, because most people did not know, and second because of the amount of details that the public got regarding the spying practices. So, yes, Snowden’s revelations were groundbreaking ...Read full article...

Obama’s War on Press Freedom

Free and open expression is our most fundamental right. Without it all others are endangered. Candidate Obama promised transparency, accountability, and reform. He called sunlight “the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse.” He said whistleblowing reflects “acts of courage and patriotism.” “Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak ...Read full article...

Obamacare Compromises Privacy

The 1974 Privacy Act governs the collection, maintenance, use and dissemination of personal information maintained by federal agencies.

Western Military Alliance and Israel continue to Support Al Qaeda Affiliated Rebels

Amply documented the Al Nusrah rebels are in possession of chemical weapons. In an unusual twist, An August 9, 2013 UPI report intimates that the Al Qaeda affiliated Al Nusrah rebels rather than the Syrian government constitute a threat to the security of Israel, an absurd proposition. And that Israel, so to speak, fears that chemical weapons might “fall in the wrong hands”. Troops loyal to Syrian President Bashar ...Read full article...

US Globalized Torture Black Sites

On October 5, US Delta Force commandos, CIA operatives, and FBI agents abducted Abu Anas al-Liby. Doing so highlights what’s been out-of-control since 9/11. In the 1980s, al-Liby was one of many CIA-recruited mujahideen fighters. They were used against Afghanistan’s Soviet occupiers. Ronald Reagan called them “the moral equivalent of our founding fathers.” He characterized Contra killers the same way. Bin Laden, al-Liby, and many other Al Qaeda fighters ...Read full article...
