“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."

But the Republican governor's administration, after examining […]
Two months ago, doctors in Australia transplanted a "dead heart" - a heart that had stopped beating inside a donor's chest - into a 57-year-old woman, reports the BBC.

Janet Yellen, chair of the U.S. Federal Reserve, opened the door to keeping a multi-trillion-dollar portfolio for years, saying a decision on when to stop reinvesting maturing bonds depends on financial conditions and the economic outlook.

The barbarians, in the form of Islamic State goons, are at the gates of Kobani, the bombed-out city in northern Syria which is also the epicenter of a non-violent experiment in local democracy. But don't expect the US, Turkey and the administration of Iraqi Kurdistan to save Kobani: the city is now an easy-to-lose pawn in a pitiless game because it embo […]

"National exceptionalism" has gained traction in the past few years, yet the concept is nothing new and has played a part from ancient Greece to Abraham Lincoln's America. The subject is seldom explored, nor are the fealty oaths that politicians swear to it challenged. Yet shine light on the history of exceptionalism and the dark underbelly of […]
The Barack Obama administration strongly condemned the declaration of independence by Crimea, but so far as international justice is concerned, the separation closely resembles Kosova's break from Serbia in 2008, which Washington warmly welcomed.

Uzbekistan's President Islam Karimov is a strong critic of the former Soviet Union, but is reluctant to dispense parts of its system, rules that curb the ability of Uzbeks to live in the capital.

Gough Whitlam, who died this week, enjoyed a brief tenure as Australia's prime minister, but his three years in office were close to being revolutionary in both domestic and foreign policies. So much so that the United States and former colonial master Britain forced him from office in a manner Latin American countries will all-too-easily recognize. Aus […]
The so-called umbrella revolution in Hong Kong has at its heart a greater mistrust over the implications of Beijing's invisible hand in the city's governance than the design of the 2017 elections. This mistrust reflects fundamental ideological differences between the Hong Kong people and the inflexible Chinese government over the relationship betwe […]
The sharp decline in the value of Russia's currency is rippling across Central Asia, where economies are dependent on transfers from workers in Russia.

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 […]

Evropské vlády nanejvýš pokrytecky tvrdí, že mandát daný Evropské komisi k vyjednávání Transatlantického obchodního a investičního partnerství s Washingtonem spadá pod evropské právo. Ve skutečnosti, stejně jako u předešlých dohod jako Swift, údajů předávaných o leteckých cestujících a o vyhýbání se placení daní, bylo Komisi řečeno, aby zrušila uplatnění evr […]
Během pár týdnů se vytvořily dvě koalice, kterým málokdo předvídal budoucnost : Kurdistán a sunitský chalifát. Meyssanova analýza, podle které obě dvě jednají pod impulsem z Washingtonu, zdá se vítězit. Naopak, šíjitský chalifát podle dohody Rotschilda s Chomejnym, tehdy uprchlíkem v Paříži, který předvídal ruský generál Filatov, zřejmě ustupuje. […]
Organizace Mujahidin-e-Khalq (MEK – ozbrojená íránská opoziční skupina financovaná Washingtonem) uspořádala 27. června ve Vilepinte u Paříže velký mítink. Událost navštívilo přes 80 tisíc lidí. Zatímco hlavním cílem bylo podpořit vojenskou základnu organizace v Iráku Camp Asharaf a její boj proti Íránu, prezidentka MEK příležitost využila k tvrdému odsouzení […]
A quarter century after the Cold War ended, the people of the world are now entering a dangerous era of improved and more accurate nuclear weapons and faster, more precise delivery systems at a time of growing antagonism between Washington and Moscow and potential antipathy between the U.S. and China.

Whereas there was at least some humor in the grim reality of Bosnia’s general elections – which, by the way, returned mostly expected results (Economist‘s wishful thinking aside) – the situation in neighboring Serbia this autumn of 2014 has been all grim and no funny.

Originally posted at TomDispatch. We’re now passing through a no-name election season of a particularly lusterless sort, but don’t count on that for 2016.

As an October 20 piece in Stars and Stripes reminds us, the U.S. has been fighting a second war in Afghanistan without much success – that would be the one against poppy production. Poppies are the flower from which opium is derived, so the U.S. campaign against their growth is a not particularly surprising aspect […]

Scientists are racing to find a cure, a vaccine and an answer to the question of how Ebola mutates. By now, educated people in America know more about Ebola than they ever thought they would.
