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."

You can argue that the 1990s were a halcyon period for the old, but you can rest assured that being old in 2040 will be very unpleasant indeed. This isn't just a US-oriented problem; it's more or less true for the world as a whole. - Martin Hutchinson

Západní politici a novináři zřejmě neví, co z dohody 5+1 vyvodit. Mnozí z nich nevěří naší analýze a nechápou, co bylo vyjednáno ve skutečnosti. Podle mého s touto dohodou přímo souvisí tento týden nejméně tři události.
Stručně řečeno, k těm „krutým dvěma“ («gruesome twosome») americko-ruských vztahů, náměstkyni amerického ministra zahraničí pro evropské a euroasijské záležitosti Victorií Nulandovou a vrchním velitelem NATO generálem Philipem Breedlovem, nyní přichází ještě třetí neo-studený válečník, generál námořní pěchoty Joseph Dunford, předpokládaný předseda sboru náče […]
Jednání 5 + 1 se zbrzdila, ne kvůli Washingtonu a Teheránu, ale proto, že Moskva se snaží, aby nové regionální uspořádání na Blízkém a Středním východě neublížilo jejím zájmům. Thierry Meyssan poodhaluje závoj nad prodloužením rozhovorů v Lausanne. Jednání 5+1 se protahují. Po zdravotních problémech pánů Kerryho a Zarifa byly vymyšleny jiné výmluvy, aby se p […]
Stále více islámských praporů je zapojeno ukrajinskou stranou do boje proti republikám Luhanska a Doněcka.

Tyto skupiny jsou provázané s nacistickým […]
Současná debata o řeckém dluhu dala vzniknout všemožným výhrůžkám, především Tsiprasově vládě, a pak Řekům. Aniž bych začínal diskusi o odporné straně této záležitosti, okomentuji mezinárodní kampaň proti Řecku, aby neopustilo eurozónu. Podíváme se na historický projekt Evropské unie a eura, se kterým přišli v r. 1946 Churchill a Truman, a na to, že nakonec […]

Odpověď Tel-Avivu a Rijádu na jednání mezi USA a Íránem, je pokračující financování války v Gaze Saúdskou Arábií od roku 2008.

Političtí vůdci Evropské unie jsou úplně mimo ohledně útoků islamistických teroristů v Evropě a ohledně migrace do Unie kvůli útěku z válečných zón. Thierry Meyssan tu předvádí, že to nejsou jen prostě náhodné důsledky konfliktu na Středním východě a v Africe, nýbrž že jde o strategické cíle Spojených států.
Do inscenace „nového ozbrojeného střetu globálních rozměrů“ se – s oporou v institucích typu Federálního rezervního systému či Bank of England – „pustila hned po skončení První světové války“. „Hrot mířil proti SSSR.“ Zlověstnou mozaiku zakládaly už „Dawesův a Youngův plány, založení Banky pro mezinárodní vypořádání, oznámení Německa, že přestane hradit repa […]
Let’s mix some metaphors in the Middle East, all of them involving elephants. In the crisis zone that encompasses Iran, Iraq, Turkey, and Syria, the Kurds are the elephant in the room.

The “P5+1” agreement with Iran basically mothballs the latter’s nuclear power activities for at least ten years. Israel and its American loyalists, however, have ordered Congress to wreck the deal.

After World War II, when Stalin encroached upon Turkey and Greece, Harry Truman came to the rescue. Turkey reciprocated by sending thousands of troops to fight alongside our GIs in Korea.

As much of the Middle East sinks deeper into division between competing political camps, the so-called "Islamic State" ("IS") continues its unhindered march towards a twisted version of a Muslim caliphate.

We love nuclear horror stories in America. We love them whether they’re somber like the film On The Beach, soapy-dramatic like the cult show Jericho, or retro-future like the Fallout series of video games.

Is group sex really as taboo as it seems? Tradition holds that if we want to have sex, we’ve got to partner up. Once you find your mate, you can place A into B to create C.

By Stephen Lendman | Global Research, September 01, 2014 On August 31, Israel’s Civil Administration announced confiscation of around 1,000 acres of privately owned Palestinian land.

Jen Marlowe reports from the Palestinian village of Duma, where Israeli settlers had poured flammable liquid into the window of the Dawabsheh home and then tossed molotov cocktails inside burning 18-month old Ali Dawabsheh to death. A neighbor tells Marlowe that as horrific as this incident was, violence from Israeli settlers is all too familiar for Palestin […]
The murder of Ali Dawabsha is deeply connected to Israel’s “War of Independence,” which declared Israel as a Jewish state after a systematic process of ethnic cleansing that included massacres, like Deir Yassin, and soon after the Kafr Kassim massacre of 1956, whose perpetrators were pardoned and freed after a year.

Almost immediately after an ultra-Orthodox fanatic Yishai Schlisser stabbed six people at the Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade, Jewish extremists perpetrated an arson attack in the village of Douma, near Nablus, killing a one-and-a-half year-old Palestinian toddler. Both crimes were explicitly condemned by the Israeli P […]
