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.

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...

UN Climate Talks are an Abject Failure

LIMA – No real science backs the notion that humans are the main cause of global warming. In fact, this reality is one of the reasons why the term global warming has been changed twice since its inception. For a few years, we’ve heard the mainstream media call it climate change, as if changes in the Earth’s climate are not normal and natural. Then came the term, climate disturbance, ...Read full article...

Henry Kissinger: Notorious War Criminal

At age 91, maybe senility set in. Or a time of reflection. At the same time, trying to have things both ways. More on this below. Kissinger was one of the most notorious war criminals ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Exceeded perhaps only by Obama. The scope of their crimes is breathtaking. Kissinger’s rap sheet includes: three to four million Southeast Asian deaths; ousting Chile’s Salvador Allende; ...Read full article...

American Military Action against Russia is now at an “operational level”

A World War Three Scenario has been on the drawing board of the Pentagon for more than ten years, military action against Russia is now contemplated at an “operational level”. Similarly, both the Senate and the House have introduced enabling legislation which provides legitimacy to the conduct of a war against Russia. We are not dealing with a “Cold War”. None of the safeguards of the Cold War era prevail.  There has ...Read full article...

The Image of the State: How History Becomes Propaganda… and Doesn’t Make Sense

Governments have no choice but to mold history, and the reason is simple: legitimization is indispensable to them. by Paul Rosenberg CaseyResearch.com December 1, 2014 As much as I love history now, I found it a confused jumble when I was in school. I was able to memorize the dates and events (for whatever that was worth), but I could find no depth to anything I was taught: it ...Read full article...

Netanyahu’s Racism Threatens to break up his Coalition Government

The vote on a new rule to define Israel as a “Jewish nation-state” is threatening to break the coalition government headed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The Next US Presidential Election Will Move The World Closer To War

Glenn Greenwald has revealed that Hillary Clinton is the presidential candidate of the banksters and warmongers. Pam and Russ Martens note that Elizabeth Warren is the populist alternative. I doubt that a politician who represents the people can acquire the campaign funds needed to run a campaign. If Warren becomes a threat, the Establishment will frame her with bogus charges and move her aside. Hillary as president would mean ...Read full article...

Dueling Ideologies: Russia v. America

Both countries are geopolitical opposites. Russia supports peace and stability. Rule of law principles. Inviolable nation-state sovereignty. Intervention against other nations is longstanding US policy. Despite international law prohibiting it. America deplores peace and stability. Wages permanent wars of aggression. Against one nation after another. Has the most appalling human rights record in world history. Including genocidal mass slaughter and destruction. Torture and other ill-treatment. Atrocities of every kind. ...Read full article...
