British propaganda and disinformation: An imperial and colonial tradition

Fri, 2018-04-20 14:34
When it comes to creating bogus news stories and advancing false narratives, the British intelligence services have few peers. In fact, the Secret Intelligence Service (MI-6) has led the way for its American “cousins” and Britain’s Commonwealth partners—from Canada and Australia to India and Malaysia—in the dark art of spreading falsehoods as truths.

The crisis is only in its beginning stages

Fri, 2018-04-20 14:34
Many, including Russia’s President Putin, have asked why the US launched an illegal attack on Syria prior to the chemical weapons inspectors examining the site of the alleged chemical attack. Continue reading →

Political assassination; political propaganda

Fri, 2018-04-20 14:34
In the Cold War struggles against the Soviets/Russians, the United States has long had the upper hand when it comes to political propaganda. What do the Russkis know about sales campaigns, advertising, psychological manipulation of the public, bait-and-switch, and a host of other Madison Avenue innovations? Just look at what the American media and their Western partners have done with the poisoning of the two Russians, Sergei Skripal and his daughter, in the UK. How many in the West doubt Russia’s guilt? Continue reading →

Freedom Rider: Syria and press propaganda

Fri, 2018-04-20 14:34
It is difficult for Americans to find out what is happening in their country and around the world. That is because corporate media outlets have nearly complete control over what they see and hear and because those interests are closely allied with the state. The promise of the Internet, the hoped for level playing field for communication and information gathering, is also under corporate control. It is now part of a well coordinated censorship effort and attack against left-wing sites such as Black Agenda Report. Continue reading →

Media cover-up: Shielding Israel is a matter of policy

Thu, 2018-04-19 05:31
The term 'media bias’ does not do justice to the Western corporate media's relationship with Israel and Palestine. The relationship is, indeed, far more profound than mere partiality. It is not ignorance, either. It is a calculated and long-term campaign, aimed at guarding Israel and demonizing Palestinians. Continue reading →

Species threatened as climate crisis pushes mother nature ‘out of synch’

Thu, 2018-04-19 05:31
The warming of the Earth over the past several decades is throwing Mother Nature's food chain out of whack and leaving many species struggling to survive, according to new research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Continue reading →

Near deadly political gas attack on Americans

Thu, 2018-04-19 05:31
In the face of steadily deteriorating imperial power, the reactionary forces of global capital have pressed the panic button and are performing far worse than rats on a sinking ship, unless those rats were armed with nuclear weapons and were as deluded as the politburo of Western capitalism. Unfortunately some who were previously considered advocates of change are now among the deluded mentioned in the quote and have become foremost protectors of the reactionary political economics of global capital controlled by the market forces of Artificial Intelligence. Continue reading →

US to declare Venezuelan presidential election invalid if Maduro Wins

Thu, 2018-04-19 05:31
Democracy in America is pure fantasy, money-controlled elections farcical when held. Continue reading →

How US has virtually destroyed UN

Thu, 2018-04-19 05:31
Under President Donald Trump, the US has basically eliminated the only real international authority the UN used to have. Here is how this was done . . . Continue reading →

From a friend in Aleppo: Syrians are laughing at us!

Wed, 2018-04-18 11:29
Just got an e-mail from a friend of mine in Aleppo regarding the recent "Friday the 13th" missile strike there—brought to the Syrian people courtesy of FUK-US (France, the United Kingdom and the U.S.) My friend watched the event on Syrian TV and apparently it was like watching a low-budget horror movie—not all that scary. 70% of the missiles were shot down by Syrian equipment left over from the 1960s. So much for Fire and Fury. Continue reading →

Once upon a time long ago truth was important

Wed, 2018-04-18 11:29
I wonder how many people, not just Americans but those in other countries, have come to the conclusion that the United States today is a less free and less aware society than the societies in the dystopian novels of the 20th century or in movies such as The Matrix and V for Vendetta. Just as people in the dystopian novels had no idea of their real situation, few Americans do either. Continue reading →

Fantasy democracy in America

Wed, 2018-04-18 11:29
The nation’s founders created a system, empowering its privilege class alone to rule—democracy the way it should be an anathema notion rejected throughout US history. Continue reading →

While China picks winners, Trump picks losers

“It’s nonsense that there’s a beautiful free market in the power industry,” Energy Secretary Rick Perry said last week as he pushed for a government bailout of coal-fired power plants. Continue reading →

The real target of the alleged chemical attacks: Jeremy Corbyn

Tue, 2018-04-17 05:28
When one looks with any sense of calm and neutral curiosity at the alleged poisoning of the Skripals, one cannot help but come away with the conclusion that a judgment had already been decided upon and that evidence—the kind that might be scrutinized by independent parties and brought up for international inspection—had been relegated to irrelevance. Russia, we all heard, was the villain, the culprit, the evil demon whose ways cannot be countered except by force. Continue reading →

Another bloody Friday in Gaza

How can we stop perpetual war?

Tue, 2018-04-17 05:28
The recent air strikes on Syria and increasing U.S. propaganda aimed at whipping the public into a war frenzy against Russia couldn’t be more transparently manipulative. More and more people are waking up to the fact that the U.S. and some of our allies keep instigating unjust, illegal wars around the world for the motives of power and profit. The U.S. always claims it conducts its endless wars for humanitarian reasons or to protect people at home, but those excuses have been proved false again and again. The main problem with this continual warring is that it always ultimately costs innocent human lives and much suffering. Continue reading →

‘Mission accomplished’ but to what end?

Tue, 2018-04-17 05:28
President Donald Trump would have been wise to have used a different turn of phrase to announce an end to US, UK and French strikes on three Syrian targets. ‘Mission accomplished’ evokes an image of George W. Bush on board a US aircraft carrier in May 2003 prematurely touting victory in Iraq. Continue reading →

The dangerous deficit in trade understanding

Tue, 2018-04-17 05:28
I was chatting with my tobacconist the other day—I have no rabbi, no priest, no minister, no imam, no chiropractor, and no lawyer, but I do have a tobacconist—when it struck me that my trade deficit with him is astronomical. Continue reading →
