America’s Hidden Hunger Crisis

Imagine tens of millions hungry in the world’s richest country. Imagine bipartisan complicity ignoring a growing crisis. Imagine uncaring policymakers. Imagine them cutting vital programs able to help when sizable increases are needed. Imagine serving monied interests at the expense of popular ones. Imagine enriching themselves in the process. Outnumber Hunger (OH) is a nationwide campaign. It enlists people in the growing fight against hunger. It works cooperatively with ...Read full article...

The US Economy Is A House Of Cards

Every aspect of it is fraudulent, and the illusion of recovery is created with fraudulent statistics. The US economy is a house of cards. Every aspect of it is fraudulent, and the illusion of recovery is created with fraudulent statistics. American capitalism itself is an illusion. All financial markets are rigged. Massive liquidity poured into financial markets by the Federal Reserve’s Quantitative Easing inflates stock and bond prices and ...Read full article...

Ukraine Fact Checking: Kerry Bullying, Bluster and Big Lies

A previous article called Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov a world class diplomat. John Kerry is polar opposite. He represents the worst of America’s dark side. He’s vying for Washington’s worst ever Secretary of State top dishonor. He’s what Paul Craig Roberts calls a “two-bit punk.” He’s a war criminal multiple times over. Demagoguery punctuates his comments. It exceeds the worst of Cold War rhetoric. He’s been caught red-handed ...Read full article...

Washington’s Corruption and Mendacity Is What Makes America “Exceptional”

World events permitting, I am going to take a few days off. Many of you write to me asking for financial advice or for explanations of the pros and cons of different investments. I don’t give financial advice and cannot answer such a large number of individual inquiries.  However, I can call to your attention two books that provide different views from those available in the financial media. The Aftershock Investor ...Read full article...

Powerful people behind Bundy Ranch Confrontation

Now that the dust has begun to settle, let’s take a deep breath and think what happened in Nevada. Perhaps you haven’t heard about the Bundy Ranch confrontation if you live outside the United States or have been sleeping under a rock for the past 3 weeks. Perhaps you did hear or read about it, but because of the amount of disinformation, guesstimates and rumors it became difficult to ...Read full article...

US Cold War Propaganda: How the CIA Made Dr. Zhivago into a Weapon

American Cold War propaganda had little, if anything, to do with the collapse of the Soviet Union.  However, by dramatizing Soviet mendacity it made the world blind to Washington’s mendacity. When Soviet authorities refused to publish prominent Soviet writer Boris Pasternak’s masterpiece, Dr. Zhivago, the CIA turned it into a propaganda coup.  An Italian journalist and Communist Party member learned of the suppressed manuscript and offered to take the ...Read full article...

Unemployment and Low Wage Employment in America

The March payroll jobs report released April 4 claims 192,000 new private sector jobs. Here is what John Williams has to say about the claim: “The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) deliberately publishes its seasonally-adjusted historical payroll-employment and household-survey (unemployment) data so that the numbers are neither consistent nor comparable with current headline reporting.  The upside revisions to the January and February monthly jobs gains, and the relatively strong ...Read full article...

Ukraine Crisis: How Much War Does Washington Want?

I doubt that the Ukraine crisis precipitated by Washington’s overthrow of the democratic government is over.  Washington has won the propaganda war everywhere outside of Russia and Ukraine itself. Within Ukraine people are aware that the coup has made them worse off.  The Crimea has already separated from the US puppet government in Kiev and rejoined Russia. Other parts of Russian Ukraine could follow. In Kiev itself where the ...Read full article...

Obama: Crimea Self-Determination Constitutes a “Threat To US National Security”

In his March 6 Executive Order, “Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine,” Obama declares that support for Crimean self-determination constitutes “an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.” http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2014/03/06/executive-order-blocking-property-certain-persons-contributing-situation Obama and the lawyers who drafted his executive order did not notice that the way ...Read full article...

Obama Regime’s Hypocrisy Sets New World Record

From the moment that Washington launched its orchestrated coup in Kiev, Washington has been accusing Russia of “intervening in Ukraine.”  This propaganda ploy succeeded.  The Western presstitute media reported (nonexistent) Russian intervention to the  exclusion of coverage of Washington’s obvious intervention. Having falsely accused Russia of invading Crimea, the Obama regime now demands that Russia interfere in Crimea and prevent the referendum set for next Sunday.  Unless Russia uses ...Read full article...

No Jobs, No Economy, No Prospects For Peace Or Life

Over the decades various administrations, seeking to improve their economic record, monkeyed with economic statistics to the point that the statistics are no longer meaningful. According to Friday’s (March 7) payroll jobs report, the US economy created 175,000 new jobs in February. If you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I’ll let you have at a good price. Even if 175,000 jobs were created in February–remember ...Read full article...

Obama Comes Out Against Self-Determination for Crimea

The White House Fool has repeatedly declared erroneously that it is “against international law” for Crimea to exercise self-determination. Self-determination, as used by Washington, is a propaganda term that serves Washington’s empire but is not permissible for real people to exercise. On March 6 Obama telephoned Putin to tell the Russian President again that only Washington has the right to interfere in Ukraine and to insist against all logic ...Read full article...

Inequality Grows in Large American Cities

As it often happens, lack of better living conditions in less urbanized areas results in massive migration to large cities, where most newcomers become victims of urban inequality. The growing income inequality in America has its greatest reflection in large cities, where the pressing income gap between rich and poor becomes more palpable and real. Inequality is such a deep problem that even Barack Obama labeled it as “the greatest challenge of our time”. The ...Read full article...

This are the numbers revealed by a study released today by the Pew Center. The independent social research group analyzed the figures from the Census Bureau and found that Los Angeles County, California, with 4.761 million Hispanics in a population of 9.88 million, is home ...Read full article...

American Stasi Police State Staring Us In The Face

The US media is on guard, prepared at an instance’s notice to suppress free speech. American taxpayers have built an entire city in Virginia so that the Pentagon,  can practice occupying American cities and putting down protests by US citizens. This fake city is the training ground for the doctrine outlined in a leaked US Army document  that describes how soldiers are to be trained to put down domestic ...Read full article...
