The Pseudo-War on Terror: How the US Has Protected Some of Its Enemies

Before World War Two American government, for all of its glaring faults, also served as a model for the world of limited government, having evolved a system of restraints on executive power through its constitutional arrangement of checks and balances. All that changed with America’s emergence as a dominant world power, and further after the Vietnam War. Since 9/11, above all, constitutional American government has been overshadowed by a ...Read full article...

The United States of Genocide

Putting the US on Trial for Genocide Against the Peoples of Korea, Laos, Viet Nam, Cambodia, Iraq, and Elsewhere The United States of America was built on a foundation of genocide against the Indigenous peoples of North America. In fact, all successful settler colonial societies are founded in genocide.

Oil May Fuel Militarization of the Arctic Region

As world powers team up to secure the ecology in the Arctic, the rivalry over its rich oil and gas resources is heating up. Michel Chossudovsky from the Centre for Research on Globalization explains that the battle for the North Pole is high on the global military agenda.

Collectivism: An Invisible Tool of Mass Control

Individualism as the concept that defines the rights of the individual as the most important instead of those of the masses is not the issue of this writing. Collectivism as the idea that the common good is more important than that of a single individual is not the matter of this essay either. The issue of concern is how Collectivism is used to manipulate individuals and masses in order ...Read full article...

From Hiroshima to Syria, the enemy whose name we dare not speak

On my wall is the front page of Daily Express of September 5, 1945 and the words: “I write this as a warning to the world.” So began Wilfred Burchett’s report from Hiroshima. It was the scoop of the century. For his lone, perilous journey that defied the US occupation authorities, Burchett was pilloried, not least by his embedded colleagues. He warned that an act of premeditated mass murder ...Read full article...

The Public Intellectual and The Marketing of World History

THERE IS a current trend in the way world history is manufactured that deserves closer scrutiny: It is the complete surrender of the humanities to marketing mechanisms and branding strategies. We don’t have to leave England to find the revolution. Niall Ferguson, the British historian – and now Harvard professor -, recently published an opinion article in the German Times in which he ruminates about ’6 Killer applications’ that ...Read full article...

Imperial Madness

Benjamin Franklin once said there’s no such thing as a good war or bad peace. His advice went unheeded. Big Lies launch wars. One after another follows. Doing so reflects imperial madness. America’s a warrior nation. It’s addicted to war. It ravages and destroys one country after another. It does so claiming humanitarian intervention. Mass killing and destruction follow. So do charnel house conditions. No nation in world history ...Read full article...

Syria: Another Western War Crime In The Making

The war criminals in Washington and other Western capitals are determined to maintain their lie that the Syrian government used chemical weapons.  Having failed in efforts to intimidate the UN chemical inspectors in Syria, Washington has demanded that UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon withdraw the chemical weapons inspectors before they can assess the evidence and make their report.  The UN Secretary General stood up to the Washington war criminals ...Read full article...

False Flag Chemical Weapons Attack on Syria. Pretext for All Out War?

False flags are an integral part of covert US military-intelligence ops: ” a deliberate gross distortion(s) of the truth used especially as a propaganda tactic.” Official stories are false.  They’re contrary to reality. They turn truth on its head. They point fingers the wrong way. They’re pretexts for militarism, wars, mass killing and destruction, occupations, domestic repression, and other extremist national security state measures. Wednesday’s Ghouta incident raises disturbing ...Read full article...

Is there a link between GMOs and Morgellons Disease?

Apparently, the answer is YES. Since the Clinton administration made biotechnology “a strategic priority for U.S. government backing” (1), giant transnational agri-business concerns have aggressively taken over the global food chain by flooding it with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) without regard for the consequences to the earth or its inhabitants. This takeover not only has the potential for global economic devastation, but threatens the earth’s population with far-reaching health ...Read full article...

$1.5 billion in bribes to Egypt will not be withdrawn by the US

Neither will the west stop the shipment of weapons to Egypt’s military It is not a secret that the United States foreign policy is managed according to American interest anywhere in the world. Ultimately, the US seeks control wherever it sees an opportunity to carry out its agenda and that is why defunding the military in Egypt is something that will not happen. Why? According to Brian Becker, national ...Read full article...

Is the United States addicted to war?

It’s been that way from inception. America’s history reflects violence. It’s blood-drenched. It glorifies war. It does so in the name of peace. America believes war is peace. It’s part of the national culture. Eventually it’s self-destructive. Today’s super-weapons make the unthinkable possible. Hyman Rickover knew.  He knew decades ago. He founded America’s nuclear navy. In 1982, he told Congress: “I do not believe that nuclear power is worth ...Read full article...

Israeli Democracy: A Convenient Illusion

Israel’s more hypocrisy than democracy. Rhetoric belies longstanding policy. Nothing ahead suggests change. Democracy exists in name only. Arundhati Roy calls India a “limbless, headless, soulless torso left bleeding under the butcher’s cleaver with a flag driven deep into her mutilated heart.” America’s the same. So is Israel. They’re pariah states. They’re rogue states. They abhor fundamental freedoms. They prioritize war and instability. They deplore peaceful conflict resolution. Israel’s ...Read full article...

Fake Washington Terror Threat

They’re in various forms. They repeat with disturbing regularity. America’s war on terror targets Islam. At issue is duplicitous scaremongering. It advances Washington’s imperium. Wars of aggression follow. False arrests target innocent victims. Terror threats repeat. They’re strategically timed. They change the subject. They divert attention. They fool most Americans. They do so most of the time. Here we go again. The mainstream media march in lockstep. They regurgitate ...Read full article...
