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."
Radioactive decay rates, thought to be unique physical constants and counted on in such fields as medicine and anthropology, may be more variable than once thought.

High above the plane of our solar system, near the asteroid-rich abyss between Mars and Jupiter, scientists have found a unique family of space rocks.

Distributed at the outer edge of the astero […]

There is no shortage of dangers in the world today. It seems every day something else appears from out of the blue and adds to the pile of potential problems we have to deal with. Some of these problems are covered over or ignored all together. They are hidden in the shadows to prevent people from protecting themselves from the dangers. The whole premise of […]
A lawsuit recently filed against a teacher at Forest Park Elementary School in Indiana alleged that a 7-year-old student was "banished" from sitting with other students at lunch after he revealed that he did not believe in God.

Why did so many Israeli voters switch their allegiance to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just before this week's election?

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. Podle New York Times se tato akce týká především pluků Cheikh Manour a Džochar Doudajev, složených především z Čečenců, kteří přišli z Gruzie a Uzbekistánu, a také z Krymských pluků, které jsou tvořeny Tatary . 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.

Is it the act or the person that makes someone gay or straight? Apparently, they called it a "bro-job," which referred to the oral sex the male rowers occasionally engaged in with one another in the showers back in high school.

The European Central Bank threatened to turn off the liquidity that all banks need for their day-to-day accounting balances. In the modern global banking system, all banks need a credit line with the central bank in order to be part of the payments system. Choking off that credit line was a form of blackmail the Greek government couldn’t refuse. Former Greek […]
