Is Brazil moving towards social collapse?

The impeachment of Dilma Rousseff could add up to crumbling infrastructure, drought, corruption, social violence and mismanagement of public funds. Brazil, rather than divide itself, used to come together to defend great democratic battles. It was so when people gathered for mass demonstrations to advocate for the right to popular vote or when, together, the they took to the streets, dressed in black, to demand the impeachment of President Collor ...Read full article...

Putin checkmates Obama as Russia overcomes U.S. “diplomacy”

It was one minute to midnight in the U.S. instigated Ukrainian war just as it was a few months ago in Syria. Right when Barack Obama was prepared to advanced his war mongering policies, Vladimir Putin made another maestro move. Mr. Putin proved once again that Russia cannot be compared to the Soviet Union. It cannot be painted blood red just because a few neocons want to. Putin’s success ...Read full article...

Palestinians Between a Rock and a Hard Place

On the one hand, Palestinian face racist Israeli persecution. On the other, their own so-called government abuses them horrifically. They remain isolated on their own under conditions no one should have to endure. World leaders able to help do nothing. Whenever things get too quiet, at strategically timed moments, or ahead of general elections, Israel invents another Palestinian terror plot. The latest one claims an East Jerusalem terror network, ...Read full article...

Arming Ukraine: Ongoing Since Last Year

Obama continues the charade about continuing diplomacy before deciding whether to supply Kiev with weapons and munitions. One last push for peace, he claimed. “If…diplomacy fails, what I’ve asked my team to do is to look at all the options.” “And the possibility of lethal defensive weapons is one of those options that’s being examined. But I have not made a decision about that yet.” Fact: Obama is a ...Read full article...

Blowback Against Israeli State Terror

Israel claims a divine right to attack any nation, group or individual it chooses with impunity. Considers naked aggression self-defense. Justifiable self-defense is called terrorism. On January 18, Israeli helicopter gunship fire killed Hezbollah military leader Imad Mughniyeh in Syria’s Quneitra province. Located in Golan’s demilitarized zone. The site of heavy clashes between Syrian forces and Takfiri terrorists. Mughniyeh and five other Hezbollah fighters were killed. Plus six Iranians. ...Read full article...

Putin’s Message to Obama on Ukraine

Putin is a master politician. Well aware of America’s imperial designs. Wanting Russia marginalized, contained, destabilized, weakened, isolated, smothered and controlled. Using Ukraine as a dagger against it. Wanting pro-Western stooge governance replacing him. Beholden to US interests. Enabling them to carve up Russia for profit. Steal its resources. Exploit it people. Make Russia America’s newest colony. Control its vast land mass. One sixth of planet earth’s land area. ...Read full article...

Greek Election: Mixed Messages, Hold the Cheers

Greece perhaps represents the epicenter of global pillage. Troika (EU, ECB, IMF) diktats wrecked its economy. Paying bankers first matters most.  Creating economic crises. Chaos. Taking full advantage to facilitate grand theft, financial terrorism and debt entrapment. Mass impoverishment, high unemployment, neo-serfdom and human misery follow. Troika policies made Greece zombie-like. A hollow shell of a nation. Strip-minded for profit. More beholden to foreign interests than its own. Its ...Read full article...

Obama’s Baseless Accusations against Moscow

Big Lies repeated enough get most people to believe them. The power of repetition works. Throughout months of Kiev instigated aggression on Donbass, Western officials outlandishly blamed Russia for their own wrongdoing. In his State of the Union address, Obama accused Russia of “aggression” in Ukraine. Earlier he said it’s “provable” that “Russian combat forces and tanks” moved into Ukraine. “(W)ith Russian weapons and Russian tanks.” “(T)hese are the ...Read full article...

America’s Abysmal State

America never was beautiful. Less than ever now during harder than ever hard times since the Great Depression. Permanent wars on humanity at home and abroad. Bipartisan defense of wealth, power and privilege at the expense of beneficial social change. Obama’s State of the Union address combined demagogic rubbish, duplicitous boilerplate, pure fantasy, colossal arrogance, and a contemptible assertion of US supremacy. “…America stands strong and united with our ...Read full article...

Free Speech with Limits? What are the implications of Pope Francis’ intolerant statements?

Perhaps Pope Francis has found the limit to what he can talk about. He has shown that being the Supreme Leader of a major religious group is not truly prepared to speak about anything. The Pope can certainly opine about anything he wants, but he needs to understand that one thing is giving an opinion and another one very different is to do so supporting your position with facts. ...Read full article...

Erdogan demands crackdown on Islamophobia

Mayor of Ankara, Melih Gökçek, says Mossad was behind the Paris attacks. Islamist Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, strongly criticized on Monday the “hypocrisy” of the West after the attack on the workers of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket in Paris because, in his view, “Muslims are being played with and nothing is being done against Islamophobia. He also railed against the organizers of ...Read full article...

Putin Bashing Remains Intense

On New Year’s eve, Bloomberg’s Josh Rogin headlined ”Inside Obama’s Secret Outreach to Russia.” Saying administration officials have been “working behind the scenes for months to forge a new working relationship with Russia…” At a time Putin bashing remains intense. Blaming him wrongfully for US crimes. Claiming he “has shown little interest in repairing relations with Washington or halting his aggression in neighboring Ukraine.” Putin wants cooperative relations with all nations ...Read full article...

Why Palestinian Sovereignty Matters

Palestinians treated like cattle. Herded into metal pens. Unable to leave once inside. New Year’s day 2015 in Occupied Palestine changed nothing. Israeli viciousness as extreme as on most other days. A Palestinian man was crushed to death. At an Israeli checkpoint. Near Tulkarem. Ahmad Samih Bdeir headed for work inside Israel. Muhammad Yakoub died the same way last year. At the same checkpoint. Passing through takes hours. Israeli ...Read full article...

America’s Deadly Embrace

Forget about Greeks. Beware US normalization schemes. So-called rapprochement. Targeting unwary nations.   Sucking them into its web. Like spiders overwhelming prey. Allegedly ending hostile relations. Imperialism 101 suggests otherwise. US policies aren’t benign. America is a global predator. History’s worst ever. Wanting all sovereign independent states eliminated. Replaced by stooge regimes. Ones it controls. Subservient to US interests. Their countries looted for profit. Their people exploited as serfs. ...Read full article...
