“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."
Japanese island Nishinoshima has grown to 11 times its original size due to the volcanic eruption started in 2013. A recent observation has shown that the volcano goes on erupting ever since and a new increase of the island's area is expected.

Russia has gained a military foothold in Europe after Vladimir Putin signed a controversial deal with Cyprus to dock warships there. British MPs said Nicosia's decision to let the Russian navy, including heavily armed frigates, use its ports for counter-terrorism and anti-piracy was 'worrying and disappointing'. Cyprus, an EU member, thrashed […]
Each year, the Arctic Tern travels over 40,000 miles, migrating nearly from pole to pole and back again. Other birds make similar (though shorter) journeys in search of warmer climes. How do these birds manage to traverse such great distances when we need a map just to make our way to the next town over? Researchers have established that birds can sense the […]
February 27 will from now on be marked in Russia as Special Operations Forces Day, according to a decree signed Thursday by President Vladimir Putin and published on the official legislative website.

The angry Norwegian lemming is one of the bravest rodents in the world because it has evolved aposematic traits to ward off predators, a study has suggested. Norwegian lemmings have an interesting reputation, with people often mistakenly believing they are "crazed creatures" that commit suicide by throwing themselves off cliffs, or exploding becaus […]
Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) does not believe that humans contribute to global warming, and on Thursday he took to the Senate floor with some hard evidence in tow: a snowball. Then he threw it. In a speech criticizing the "hysteria" around global warming, Inhofe - who chairs the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works - pointed to a particula […]

The course of the upcoming Republican presidential debates, insofar as they will touch on foreign policy, is already clear: they will be marked by a barely concealed Islamophobia and inept prescriptions for defeating Islamic State. Absent a willingness to address the issue of good governance in the Islamic world, there is no reason to believe that the US and […]
The presence of large quantities of natural gas below the eastern Mediterranean - including off the coast of Gaza - combined with Israel's desperate need for energy supplies independent of hostile neighbors, means that the present Middle East crisis is nothing but prelude. - Michael Schwartz (Feb 27, '15)
Liberals might be loosing the moral high ground in what seems a watershed in Western public discourse, as "political correctness" increasingly leads to self-censorship (and claims of "microaggresion") among individuals, in academia, and in the media. The jewels Westerners have always been proud of, honest reporting and free speech, seem n […]
Will China succeed in overtaking the US as the top superpower by peaceful means? Michael Pillsbury, in his book subtitled "China's Secret Strategy to Replace America as the Global Superpower", warns that there is such a plan, but is it not, rather, a vague ambition such as is harbored by all states and people alike to one day become great? Sti […]
Most countries have their national or political "heroes". One such is Myanmar's General Aung San, born 100 years ago this month. Less celebrated publicly is Ronald Dworkin, who passed away just two years ago, also on February 13. But the latter's view of life can help us better understand that of the former and of other once-living emblem […]
China's new Draft Foreign Investment Law has been hailed as a major overhaul of the existing foreign-investment regime, but it is clear there still is a huge amount of grey for overseas investors to contend with. - Jean-Marc F Blanchard
Wang Mengshu, long a leading Chinese railroad and tunneling engineer, has a dream, shared by international colleagues, for a China-Russia-Alaska-Canada-US rail link.

Islam Times - Truly, US President Barack Obama’s recent call to address the root causes of violence, including that of the so-called “Islamic State” (IS) and al-Qaeda was a step in the right direction, but still miles away from taking the least responsibility for the mayhem that has afflicted the Middle East since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003.

ΒοιβοδιναPokud se v Bruselu sídlící Evropské unii a NATO povede to, co chtějí, tak se srbská provincie Vojvodina připojí k tomu, čím je už Kosovo, které před tím Evropská unie s NATO od Srbska odřízla jako stát etnických Albánců vedený teroristickou Kosovskou osvobozeneckou armádou (KLA), tedy jako zase další atrapa nezávislého státu na Balkáně. Poté, co Srb […]
Krize, která zachvátila americký státní aparát, přímo ohrožuje přežití Říše. Již to není jen názorem Thierry Meyssana, ale tématem, které otřásá vládnoucí třídou ve Washingtonu do té míry, že čestný prezident CFR požaduje odstoupení hlavních poradců prezidenta Obamy a jmenování nového týmu. Tento střet nemá nic společného s typickou opozicí Demokratů vůči Re […]
Zveřejněné výňatky ze zprávy senátního výboru týkající se tajného mučícího programu CIA odhalují rozsáhlou zločinnou organizaci. Thierry Meyssan si za vás 525 stran tohoto dokumentu přečetl. Našel důkazy o tom, co říkal již roky.
Podle Manlia Dinucciho, stačí číst oficiální zprávy Bílého domu o obnově diplomatických vztahů s Kubou pro pochopení, že se v podstatě nic nezměnilo: Spojené státy mají stále v úmyslu zničit kubánský stát, ale za použití měkčích metod než je státní terorismus a embargo. Dalším krokem proto bude pokus o vyvolání barevné "revoluce". […]
Kým veľa Francúzov zareagovala na útoky Charlie Hebdo odsúdením Islamu a demonštrovaním v uliciach Paríža, Thierry Meyssan poukázal nato že zapojenie džihádistov je vylúčené. Je lákavé predstaviť si to ako operáciu z radov al-Kájdy alebo ISIS ale on predstavil ďalšiu, oveľa viac znepokojujúcu hypotézu.
Syrský lid zvítězil ve dvou po sobě následujících válkách během čtyř let. Ta země však přesto nepoznala mír. Nejenže washingtonští „liberální jestřábi“ dělají vše, co je v jejich silách, aby tu krizi prodloužili, ale ukuli i plán na přípravu třetí války. Thierry Meyssan odhaluje, jak mají v úmyslu ke svému prospěchu zneužít mírovou konferenci, která má podle […]
Na výročním summitu o bezpečnosti organizovaném Bertelsmannovou nadací a NATO v Mnichově v r. 2007 prezident Vladimir Putin zdůraznil, že zájmy západních Evropanů nejsou jen v zámoří, ale také, a obzvláště, v Rusku. Od té doby se pokoušel vybudovat ekonomické vztahy, včetně výstavby plynovodu North Stream, pod vedením bývalého německého kancléře Gerharda Sch […]
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.

If the sadists of ISIS are seeking – with their mass executions, child rapes, immolations, and beheadings of Christians – to stampede us into a new war in the Middle East, they are succeeding. Repeatedly snapping the blood-red cape of terrorist atrocities in our faces has the Yankee bull snorting, pawing the ground, ready to […]
Amid all the propaganda masquerading as "news" about our endless "war on terrorism," what’s interesting is that the most recent interventionist blitz over ISIS, or the self-proclaimed "Islamic State," has had a surprisingly minimal effect. Recent polls show that while support for more US intervention in the Middle East has gone […]
Truly, US President Barack Obama’s recent call to address the root causes of violence, including that of the so-called "Islamic State" (IS) and al-Qaeda was a step in the right direction, but still miles away from taking the least responsibility for the mayhem that has afflicted the Middle East since the US invasion of Iraq […]
Though the war on drugs is far from over, recreational marijuana is now legal in three US states. This week, Alaska joined Washington state and Colorado in dialing back the conflict has been a staggering human rights violation, and fuel for the US’s increasingly militarized police.

Gen. John Allen testified before the U.S. Congress on Wednesday. He said the Islamic State militants have lost half their leaders in Iraq. He also warned that the militant group cannot be completely eradicated, but its operational abilities can be reduced significantly.
Walter B. Jones is seventy-two years old, but the feisty Republican congressman representing North Carolina’s third congressional district has no plans to retire.

Originally posted at TomDispatch. My drone is yours, compadre! Or so Washington has now decided. The latest promise of good times in the arms trade comes from an administration that has pioneered a robotic assassination regime organized out of the White House (though credit for groundbreaking drone assassination work should go to Israel as well).

Barack Obama, after six months of fighting against the brutal group ISIS, has finally decided to ask for congressional approval of his war. He, like the Bushes before him, maintained that he already had the authority to go to war but only asked for Congress’s permission out of courtesy. And despite their often blind hatred […]

These states are pushing the boundaries of constitutional law and common sense.

The Fox blowhard has a, shall we say, shaky relationship with the truth. Bill O'Reilly is consistently the most-watched opinion news pundit. But despite bringing in enormous ratings, O'Reilly has gotten himself into a bit of trouble as it appears that he has, on several occasions, blatantly lied about his reporting history.Here's the three big […]
The Wisconsin governor made the insane claim that he fought unions, so he can fight ISIS. One of the most remarkable things about the 2011 Wisconsin uprising was how a protest so massive and so sustained managed to be entirely peaceful. Thousands of people occupied the capital building, around the clock, for two weeks straight, without incident. For months, […]
The EU prohibits many harmful ingredients America allows. But multinational corporations are looking to change that.

Libertarians believe they're rebels, but they are really political children who scream through tears. Libertarians believe themselves controversial and cool.

The videos, while no doubt useful, seem like a colossal admission of failure, too. A horrifying new story from the Marshall Project tells the story of John, a 17-year-old, 140-pound inmate in Michigan, who was raped by his 200-pound cellmate after being housed in an adult prison. It was not the last time he would be sexually assaulted. The piece is titled, […]
