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."

Průhlednou šmíru předvedla americká média předstíráním svého rozhořčeného údivu nad simulovaným útokem ruských stíhaček na americkou loď Donald Cook. Podrobně přitom popisovala, kolikrát a v jaké výšce ruské stíhačky nad Donaldem Cookem přeletěly, ale o tom, jakým typem lodí Donald Cook je a kde se v okamžiku incidentu nalézal, neutrousila ani zmínku. A o to […]
Libye vlastní skoro 40 % africké ropy, ceněné pro svoji vysokou kvalitu a nízké těžební náklady, a také velké zásoby přírodního plynu.

Podpisem dohody s Tureckem o zpomalení přílivu uprchlíků – což je podle mezinárodního práva ilegální – učinili vůdci Evropy další krok k paktu s ďáblem. Velká část z 3 miliard euro ročně poskytovaných Ankaře bude sloužit jako finanční podpora džihádistům a v důsledku toho se zvýší počet přistěhovalců, kteří utíkají před válkou. Zrušením vízové povinnosti s T […]
Zatímco Západ vyvíjel tlak na Írán, aby se vzdal svého civilního jaderného programu, tak mezitím Saúdové koupili atomovou bombu od Izraele nebo Pákistánu. Od té chvíle se Blízký východ stal k překvapení všech jadernou zónou, jíž dominuje Izrael a Saúdská Arábie.
Rusko zpochybnilo budoucnost Turecka, když doručilo Radě bezpečnosti zprávu od zpravodajské služby o poznatcích, týkajících se činnosti Turecka na podporu džihádistů.

Na rozdíl od zdání nemá rozhodnutí Spojených států vyšetřovat možnou ruskou pomoc proti-evropským stranám chránit Evropany před zahraničním zasahováním. Právě naopak. Po 70 let Washington řídí západoevropskou politiku a zakazuje všechny formy skutečné demokracie.

Many of you who had been on the DIGNITY and SPIRIT OF HUMANITY voyages in December 2008, January 2009 and July 2009 filled out the ICC forms stating that what Israel did was not a one-off attack on Freedom Flotilla I.

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.

AS POLITICAL theatre, America’s party conventions have no parallel. Activists from right and left converge to choose their nominees and celebrate conservatism (Republicans) and progressivism (Democrats). But this year was different, and not just because Hillary Clinton became the first woman to be nominated for president by a major party. The conventions hig […]

Für den Euro-Kritiker Frank Schäffler ist die Banken-Krise keineswegs ausgestanden - auch wenn der EZB-Stresstest diesen Eindruck zu erwecken sucht.

Fällige Korrekturen werden hinausgezögert und werden am Ende wesentlich teurer. […]
Die privaten Haushalte in der Euro-Zone haben aus der Finanzkrise ihre Lehren gezogen: Sie sparen, bauen Schulden ab und vermeiden finanzielle Abenteuer. Der Grund: Die verfügbaren Einkommen wachsen nur in sehr bescheidenem Ausmaß.
Die offizielle Inflation steigt in Deutschland nur leicht. Tatsächlich zeigt die Entwicklung, dass die Politik der EZB nicht greift: Sie hat Unsummen in das System gepumpt, ohne das erklärte Ziel einer höheren Inflation zu erreichen.
Der Wachstumsschwung der Euro-Zone hat nachgelassen. Besonders Frankreich hat das Gesamtergebnis mit seiner stagnierenden Wirtschaft beeinflusst. Nur ein stark aufstrebendes Spanien konnte den Stillstand verhindern.
Schlusslichter beim EZB-Stresstest sind die MPS aus Italien, die Allied Irish Bank, die österreichische Raiffeisen Zentralbank (RZB) und die Bank of Ireland. Auch die britischen Großbanken schneiden nicht besonders gut ab. Ebenfalls schwach: Die Unicredit, Mutter der HypoVereinsbank.
Commerzbank und Deutsche Banke hätten laut EZB in einer Stress-Situation die schwächsten Kernkapitalquoten. Auch die BayernLB und die NordLB blieben in einer Krise unter 9 Prozent. Die Bundesbank sieht die deutschen Banken dennoch in einer guten Verfassung.
Die EZB sieht die von ihr untersuchten 37 Banken in besserem Zustand als noch 2014. Die Kernkapitalquote der Banken soll demnach bei widrigen Umständen 9,1 Prozent betragen. Überraschend: Die Commerzbank und die Deutsche Bank bekommen von der EZB den meisten Druck.
