Assange: Obama is an “extremist”

“He is a wolf in sheep’s clothing” said Assange about Obama. After hearing about the sentence of up to 136 years that stares in the face of the soldier Bradley Manning, accused of the biggest leak of classified documents in U.S. history, Julian Assange reacted rapidly and called him a “hero”, stating that he has not had a fair trial. The leader of Wikileaks said he will not rest ...Read full article...

EU eliminates article that protected User Data

Authorities gave in to American pressure despite objection from data protection agencies A hidden-and seemingly discrete-Article 42 of the data protection rules triggered all alarms among EU partners. Also, to a lesser extent, in some offices of the European Commission. Article 42 referred to the exchange of data with third countries and expressly forbade any entity from disclosing information to the authorities of other states (including judicial ones) unless ...Read full article...

New EU Guidelines on Israel

A previous article discussed them. They pertain to illegal Israeli West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Golan settlements. They leave besieged Gaza unaddressed. It’s a glaring omission. It’s dismissive of 1.7 million Gazans. Their rights don’t matter. Israel’s suffocating them illegally. A humanitarian crisis persists. Dealing with it responsibly is urgent. EU nations don’t care. It’s off their radar. So is militarized occupation too horrific to tolerate. Long overdue Palestinian self-determination’s not ...Read full article...

Snowden’s Asylum Quest: Press Conference in Moscow Airport

Snowden reflects the best of heroic activism. He acted responsibly. He did the right thing. He committed no crimes. He knew the risks and took them. Few would do as much. Legions more are needed. Maybe he’ll inspire others to come forward. Today they’re more than ever needed. He sacrificed financial security, personal freedom and well-being. He did so to expose serious US high crimes. Potentially everyone’s harmed everywhere. ...Read full article...

The Forces Behind “Carbon-Centric Environmentalism”

On June 25, 2013 President Obama laid out his long term agenda for reducing US industrial and consumer “greenhouse emissions.” On July 11th the Department of Energy warns that “climate change”-related events will be threatening traditional sources of energy production and causing more energy supply disruptions. All the while, the notion that unusual or extreme weather events are primarily due to an excess of atmospheric CO2 and the consequent ...Read full article...

European Union Refuses to Condemn American Spying

Europe had in his hand a major bargaining chip to pressure the United States due to the spying scandal. Despite the economic weakness of the EU economy, the great trade agreement to be discussed on Monday in Washington seems to still benefits the U.S. more than the EU, according to an independent study prepared for the European Commission. But the EU has chosen to ignore their own common force ...Read full article...

Lawlessness Is The New Normal

In various articles and in my latest book, The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism And Economic Dissolution Of The West, I have pointed out that the European sovereign debt crisis is being used to terminate the sovereignty of the countries that are members of the EU. There is no doubt that this is true, but the sovereignty of the EU member states is only nominal. Although the individual countries ...Read full article...

Hands off Snowden Campaign

Note: What a better way to celebrate the 4th of July than by defending The People‘s right to know what their criminal government cooks up in secret, and to support those who have the courage to make that happen? If you agree with defending the First, Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Amendments, which have been all but erased from the Constitution by fascist regimes all over the planet for ...Read full article...

Has Washington’s Arrogance Undone Its Empire?

No one likes a bully, and Washington’s NATO puppets have been bullied for six decades. British prime ministers, German chancellors, and French presidents have to salute and say “yes sir.” They all hate it, but they love Washington’s money; so they prostitute themselves and their countries for Washington’s money.  Even a person of Winston Churchill’s stature had to suck up to Washington in order to get his bills and ...Read full article...

Germany calls US Spying Unimaginable, Launches Investigation

The German federal prosecutors are now investigating the espionage practiced by the United States in Germany, following information published by Der Spiegel, which says the National Security Agency of the United States collected information on at least 500 million communications a month in that country, by phone or internet. According to Der Spiegel, the Germans will see whether the National Security Agency (NSA) committed a crime against the right ...Read full article...

A New Beginning Without Washington’s Sanctimonious Mask

It is hard to understand the fuss that Washington and its media whores are making over Edward Snowden.  We have known for a long time that the National Security Agency (NSA) has been spying for years without warrants on the communications of Americans and people throughout the world.  Photographs of the massive NSA building in Utah built for the purpose of storing the intercepted communications of the world have ...Read full article...

Obama calls climate skeptics ‘flat-earth society’

Obama shielded himself with the same junk science used by climate alarmists to drive his de-industrialization agenda. You’re in estimable and well-educated company if you don’t believe in the myth of global warming.  However, according to Obama, those who doubt the climate change propaganda are members of the “Flat Earth Society” –  basically, superstitious fools. Ironically, Obama is the one using junk science and emotion in order to further ...Read full article...

Obama’s Lofty Words of Peace While Beating the Drums of War

On June 19, 2013, US President Obama, hoping to raise himself above the developing National Security Agency (NSA) spy scandals, sought to associate himself with two iconic speeches made at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. Fifty years ago, President John F. Kennedy pledged: “Ich bin ein Berliner”. In 1987, President Ronald Reagan challenged: “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” Obama’s speech was delivered to a relatively small, specially selected ...Read full article...

High Level Opposition to Obama’s Escalating Syria Conflict

Dozens of responsible world leaders oppose Washington’s war on Syria. They do so for good reason. They want peaceful conflict resolution. They’re against greater escalation. Few say so publicly. On May 15, the UN General Assembly adopted an anti-Assad resolution. It’s non-binding. It was Arab League-led. Washington co-sponsored it. It followed four others since 2011. It passed 107 – 12. Over 70 nations refused support. They endorse peace, not ...Read full article...

UK Law allows for the Spying of Diplomats

The powers that allow British intelligence services to spy on people, including foreign diplomats, were established in the Intelligence Services Act 1994. It was approved, says the document, to provide a framework of large amplitude to allow all staff involved in espionage to could carry out any operation supported by an officer, and the techniques used during the G20 summit four years ago indicate there is a lot of ...Read full article...
