“Only after the last tree has been cut down, Only after the last river has been poisoned, Only after the last fish has been caught, Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten”. Cree Indian Prophecy
The 1776 Declaration of Independence stated that when a long train of abuses by those in power evidence a design to reduce the rights of people to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, it is the peoples right, in fact their duty to engage in a revolution.
and ….. JFK in his own words !
In a speech to the Newspaper Publishers Association in 1961, President Kennedy said:
“No president should fear public scrutiny of his program, for from that scrutiny comes understanding, and from that understanding comes support or opposition; and both are necessary. . . . Without debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed, and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law makers once decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment.”
Abraham Lincoln said, just before his assassination:
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country...Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."
This is a time of year for memories, and the ones that keep bothering me are from my childhood, which seemed at the time to be wholly happy and untroubled. Yet all the adults in my life still dwelt in the shadow of recent war. This was not the glamorous, exciting side of war, but the miserable, fearful and hungry aspect. My mother, even in middle-class subur […]
As the wasteful, immoral war on drugs continues in police states around the world, authorities are always looking for ways to track the use of "illicit" drugs.

NBC News yesterday called her a "key apologist" for the CIA's torture program.

Graeme MacQueen's new book, The 2001 Anthrax Deception, reveals stunning links between the 9/11 attacks and the anthrax attacks that immediately followed.

These actions suggest that Atta was trying to leave the people he enc […]

A clinical psychologist at Yale is attempting to improve the cognitive functioning of psychopaths using computer games, Vox reports.

The collapse of Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition government makes it time for Israelis to take stock of the damage he caused to the image of the country, to its moral standing, to its place among the nations, to its future as a Jewish state, to its friends (especially the United States), and to its prospect of living in peace and real security. - Alon Ben […]
Israeli air force and artillery have intervened several times to protect al-Nusra Front "safe havens" against fire power from the Syrian government, which is still committed to its ceasefire agreement of 1974 with Israel. Such attacks not only violate Syrian sovereignty and further al-Nusra's position, they also violate also the UN-sponsored c […]
The abrupt discovery of a resurgent terror network operating from West Bengal and Assam to wreak havoc in Bangladesh and India serves as a wake-up call for New Delhi to more effectively work with Indian states and their neighbors to counter the threat. The evidence points to a clear risk that the northeast of the country will become a safe haven from which n […]
Ukraine faces an almost impossible task: carefully balancing its internal contradictions while initiating widespread reforms.

The shock resonating from the Senate Intelligence Committee’s CIA torture report isn’t due so much to the revelations themselves, grotesque as the details are, but to the fact that they’re now officially public. National spokespersons (except for Dick Cheney) can no longer deny, quite so glibly, that the United States is what it claims its enemies to be. […]
Maďarsko a jeho populistický národní ministerský předseda Viktor Orbán se dostali do hledáčku politických elit Washingtonu. A jeho hřích? Ve snaze definovat maďarskou národní identitu se nesklání před často destruktivním diktátem bruselské Komise EU. Avšak jeho kardinálním hříchem je prohlubování vztahů s Ruskem a jeho vzdorovitost vůči Washingtonu, když pod […]
Že to Obama projede, se vědělo. Cukrátka pro Main Street – a bianko šek pro Wall Street – prohrávají globálně. Co ten schizofrenní mišmaš ještě zkusí – a kde už má ruce svázané - předjímá francouzský publicista Thierry Meyssan.
Thierry Meyssan jako první poukázal na nemožnost oficiální verze útoků z 11. září a došel k závěru, že povaha a politika režimu USA se změnila. Zatímco většinu jeho čtenářů tento den stále vzrušuje, on sám šel vlastní cestou a nyní se soustředí na boj s imperialismem v Libanonu, Lybii a teď v Sýrii. Přinášíme jeho pohled na tento šílený den.

Anglo-americká agrese proti Rusku nabírá formu finanční a ekonomické války. Ale Moskva se připravuje na nepřátelské ozbrojené akce tím, že rozvíjí svoji zemědělskou soběstačnost a rozšiřuje své aliance. Podle Therry Meyssana, po vytvoření kalifátu v Levantu Washington v září v Sankt Petersburgu položil na stůl novou kartu. Budoucí kurs událostí bude určen sc […]
Zatímco západní veřejné mínění je krmeno informacemi o vytvoření údajné mezinárodní koalice pro boj proti „Islámskému emirátu“, ten mění diskrétně tvar. Jeho hlavními důstojníky již nejsou Arabové, ale Gruzínci a Číňané. Pro Thierry Meyssana tato mutace ukazuje na to, že NATO má v konečném úmyslu použít „Islámský emirát“ v Rusku a Číně. Proto musí nyní obě z […]
Každý má názor jak vysvětlit masakry spáchané státem Izrael v Gaze. Zatímco v 70. a 80. letech to byla demonstrace anglo-saského imperialismu, dnes to mnozí interpretují jako konflikt mezi židy a Araby. Při hodnocení dlouhého historického období – čtyř století – Thierry Meyssan, konzultant několika vlád, analyzuje původ sionismu, jeho skutečné ambice, a urču […]
Po třech letech války proti Sýrii "Západ" účelně rozšířil svou ofenzívu nejdříve na Irák, posléze i na Palestinu. Vzhledem ke zdánlivým rozporům mezi politickými stranami náboženskými a sekulárními lze tuto strategii vysvětlit jedině silnými hospodářskými zájmy. Mnoho skupin na Blízkém východě pravidelně měnilo tábory, ale naleziště zemního plynu j […]

The Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on how the US government tortured detainees at Guantanamo and at secret "black sites" all over the world has focused on how they did it: rectal feeding, hanging detainees by their arms, "stress positions," beatings, etc. The prurience of this focus is fairly obvious, and typical of decadent socie […]

After several years of absence from the national spotlight, former Vice President Dick Cheney has unfortunately returned in recent weeks in an attempt to defend the Bush administration and to condemn the Senate’s torture report.
