Brazilian Political Elite postpones start of Impeachment against Rousseff

In Brazil, unlawful maneuvers by the Rousseff administration are ‘forgiven’ because they were committed in a different administration. On Tuesday, the country woke up expecting some outcome, for better or worse, on the future of President Dilma Rousseff: the leader of the Chamber of Deputies, Eduardo Cunha, had to accept or reject the opening of impeachment proceedings for alleged irregularities in government accounts in 2014. But the plot has ...Read full article...

Impeachment knocks on Dilma Rousseff’s door

Brazilian legislators decide Dilma Rousseff’s political future. The signs of corruption in the Rousseff administration are undeniable. Federal police and national prosecutors have found enough proof to open investigations against corporate leaders, politicians, congressmen and even the former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. So, why not a full investigation on Dilma Rousseff’s actions regarding her administration’s accounting practices? Brazil has, for the moment, more questions than answers, but ...Read full article...

The Impulsiveness of U.S. Power

Washington’s impulsive use of power is a danger to America and to the world. Arrogant Washington politicians and crazed neoconservatives are screaming that the US must shoot down Russian aircraft that are operating against the US-supplied forces that have brought death and destruction to Syria, unleashing millions of refugees on Europe, in Washington’s effort to overthrow the Syrian government. Even my former CSIS colleague, Zbigniew Brzezinski, normally a sensible ...Read full article...

Lunatics in Washington Want Direct Confrontation with Russia

Russia’s sovereign independence sticks in Washington’s craw, longterm US policy determined to replace it with governance it controls – even at the risk of WW III. Putin’s most responsible policies are bashed, notably his forthright efforts to end conflicts in Ukraine and Syria diplomatically – now his real war on terrorism, polar opposite Washington’s phony one, a pretext for ravaging one country after another. Irresponsible propaganda war against him ...Read full article...

Trump: “Mentally ill people” not Guns “responsible for Mass Shootings”

In one of his latest television interviews, Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, said gun violence is due to mentally ill people getting guns. Trump rejected the notion that more firearms is the problem and insisted that places with the most stringent gun laws are the most violent. Trump advocated for more help for mentally ill people as supposed to more gun laws, which he said, are ineffective in preventing mass ...Read full article...

Polar Opposites: US vs Russia in Syria

Washington wants regime change, replacing Bashar al-Assad with a US selected puppet. Its strategy features naked aggression, transforming a peaceful nation threatening no one into an endless cauldron of violence, chaos and instability, causing enormous harm to millions of Syrians. Words can’t explain their suffering. US imperial policy bears full responsibility, complicit with Israel, wanting a regional rival removed, more Syrian territory stolen, both nations pursuing their Greater Middle ...Read full article...

Putin to America: “Stop Acting out of Imperialistic Ambitions”

“Rise above the endless desire to dominate the world,” said Putin in a press conference. There are many differences between the way politics is done in America and in Russia  There are countless differences between the current U.S. president and Vladimir Putin. Among all those differences there is one evident feature that Putin has that Obama does not: Putin speaks clearly and straightforwardly. Putin is also a very smart ...Read full article...

Obama Deifies American Hegemony

Obama justifies Washington’s violence as ‘liberation from dictators’. Today is the 70th anniversary of the UN. It is not clear how much good the UN has done. Some UN Blue Helmet peacekeeping operations had limited success. But mainly Washington has used the UN for war, such as the Korean War and Washington’s Cold War against the Soviet Union. In our time Washington had UN tanks sent in against Bosnian ...Read full article...

Catalonia to vote in fierce independence row with Spain

AFP – A bitter standoff dragging in everyone from politicians to footballers hits a climax Sunday when nationalists in Catalonia hope voters will back them to strike out for independence from Spain. Insults and threats have been flying between Barcelona and Madrid this week ahead of the regional election that Catalan nationalists have framed as a vote on whether to break away and create a new state in Europe. ...Read full article...

Russia’s False Hopes

Russia so desperately desires to be part of the disreputable and collapsing West that Russia is losing its grip on reality. Despite hard lesson piled upon hard lesson, Russia cannot give up its hope of being acceptable to the West. The only way Russia can be acceptable to the West is to accept vassal status. Russia miscalculated that diplomacy could solve the crisis that Washington created in Ukraine and ...Read full article...

Israel Imposes Lockdown on Palestine

Israel prevents free movement throughout the Occupied Territories at all times. Jews only roads prohibit Palestinians from using them. Settlements are for exclusive Jewish use – no goyim allowed, especially Muslims. Zionism is apartheid on steroids – far exceeding South Africa’s harshness. It’s a sophisticated form social, economic, political and racial discrimination – combining suffocating strangulation with slow-motion genocide, incorporating colonialism’s worst policies. They include murder, extermination, enslavement, torture, ...Read full article...

Washington doesn’t negotiate. It demands.

American cooperation with Russia on the Syrian situation is a smoke screen of deception. Claiming the need for a political solution belies America’s rage for war. Washington undermined Geneva I and II talks despite Russia’s best efforts. Longstanding US plans call for regime change. Days after 9/11, retired General Wesley Clark visited then Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld at the Pentagon “No one will tell us where or when to ...Read full article...

Republicans candidates are not for Peace

Here is Carly Fiorina at the debate describing the way she will lead us to Armageddon. She won’t talk to Putin, but she will send him “the message” via military threats: “Having met Vladimir Putin, I wouldn’t talk to him at all. We’ve talked way too much to him. What I would do, immediately, is begin rebuilding the Sixth Fleet, I would begin rebuilding the missile defense program in ...Read full article...
