North America

Counter-terrorism according to Trump

While the new US anti-terrorist strategy doesn’t change much in terms of the fight itself, it operates a profound modification of the working rules of the Pentagon and the Secretariat of Homeland Security. It is not so much a rationalisation of what has been developed since 2001, but more a redefinition of the missions of the federal State. On 4 October 2018, the White House published the new « National ...Read full article...

Is a Socialist credit program a reality in America?

Have you heard about China’s dystopian new “social credit” program? If you haven’t, there’s a terrifying infographic from Bored Panda that I’ll be referencing throughout this article. The good news is that this is happening in China, where we all know a Communist government has long been crushing freedom for the residents of the nation. You may think this doesn’t affect you because you’re in America, gosh-dang-it, but we’ve seen over and over ...Read full article...

The Myth of Foreign Meddling in US Elections

US elections are farcical when held – a contest between two right wings of the one-party state. Dirty business as usual always wins. Foreign meddling in the process would accomplish nothing if it occurred – unable to change one-party rule so why bother trying. Washington’s intelligence community, Russophobe pols, and media scoundrels perpetuate the myth of Russian US election meddling – never presenting a shred of evidence proving it ...Read full article...

Washington Increases Funding for Israel’s Killing Machine

Israel is Washington’s largest recipient of foreign aid. It’s mostly for militarism and belligerence – billions of dollars annually, far more than to any other nation. The Jewish state’s imperial wars, occupation harshness, and apartheid high crimes don’t matter – nor its flagrant violations of international law, not even its abusive spying on US military and other operations. The CIA earlier called Israel its main regional spy threat. The ...Read full article...

Who Does America Belong to?

The housing market is now apparently turning down. Consumer incomes are limited by jobs offshoring and the ability of employers to hold down wages and salaries.  The Federal Reserve seems committed to higher interest rates—in my view to protect the exchange value of the US dollar on which Washington’s power is based. The arrogant fools in Washington, with whom I spent a quarter century, have, with their bellicosity and ...Read full article...

No Russian interference found in US 2016 Election

The fabricated scandal known as Russiagate is a CIA concocted hoax spread around the world by mainstream corporate media, whose owner, the Deep State is in the process of removing the only American President who dares challenging the existing global order. Trump knows it and said so in Helsinki. When asked if he holds Russia accountable for anything, he said: “I hold both countries responsible (for dismal bilateral relations). ...Read full article...

The Enemy is the National Security State

Enemies of humanity? There are many. The IMF, the World Bank, the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the World Trade Organization. These and any other political structures, elected or unelected, who threaten national interests are all enemies of humanity. Donald Trump was right when he said the European Union is the enemy, but there are more dangerous enemies. The National Security State (NSS), governed by the intelligence community ...Read full article...

How to Survive the Civil Unrest That’s Coming to America

The rhetoric in the United States is heating up and we’re sounding anything but…well…united. It seems to most media pundits like we are too far down the path to Civil War 2.0 to turn back now. Activists are laying siege to government offices. Threats toward people who disagree are growing in ferocity. It’s ugly and getting uglier. It’s a powder keg that is about to erupt. (Here are some ...Read full article...

US Media Deliberately Trying to Spawn Civil War 2.0

Everyone is talking about a looming civil war on American soil, but they’re all blaming the “other” side. The media is deliberately trying to stir things up with breathless headlines about how awful the “other” side is. And it’s working so well it could lead us right to Civil War 2.0. (Here’s what you need to know to be prepared for widespread civil unrest.) The fact is, both the Left ...Read full article...

What are Donald Trump’s positions?

Donald Trump continually denounced the American Empire, and announced the return to Republican principles. Elected for his promises to change the paradigm, President Donald Trump continues to astonish all those who take him for an idiot. Yet all he is doing is implementing the ideas that he developed during his electoral campaign, thus taking his place in a political tradition which, although long neglected, is solidly anchored in US ...Read full article...

Poverty and Deprivation in America

America is a land of extremes – unprecedented wealth enjoyed by a privileged few contrasted with deep poverty because of neoliberal harshness, bipartisan force-fed austerity, grievously harming the nation’s most vulnerable. American exceptionalism’s dark side is damning. Poverty, homelessness, hunger, unemployment, underemployment, and deprivation harm countless millions. Both right wings of US duopoly governance are complicit in serving privileged interests exclusively – Wall Street, other corporate predators, and high-net ...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...

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...

43% of Americans Can’t Pay for Food and Rent

While many Americans are still doing okay, the specter of poverty looms over many of us. Many of us know that we’re one personal financial catastrophe away from disaster. You know all those reports about how lots of Americans can’t afford a $1000 surprise expense like a medical bill or a car repair? Well, forget additional expenses. It turns out that nearly half of the families in America are struggling to pay ...Read full article...

Washington forces its allies to accept a bipolar world

By firing missiles on Syria with its French and British allies, the strange President Donald Trump has managed to force the Western powers to accept the end of their unilateral domination of the world. The insignificant result of this demonstration of force drags NATO back to reality. Without having made use of its weapons, Russia now succeeds the Soviet Union in the balance of world power. ver the last ...Read full article...
