“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."
Newly published research highlights the pervasiveness of American poverty. It may be hard to imagine how one can survive earning no more than $2 a day, but for 1.5 million families and 3 million children in the US, this single digit is a severe reality, according to a new book, $2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America by co-authors Bloomberg Distingu […]
A 3000-year-old fragment of pottery has solved a mystery behind the movement of an ancient people of South East Asia into the Pacific. These ancient colonisers - known as Lapita - carried with them agricultural plants derived from mainland New Guinea. However, until now there has been no evidence of an early connection between the Lapita and indigenous New G […]

According to previous researc […]
A new report shows poor households cannot earn enough to live in even the least expensive metropolitan American cities. This is a signal that the country's slow-motion economic collapse is hitting low-income workers the hardest. Commentators continue to cheer on America's so-called booming economic recovery. Last quarter, the U.S. economy grew at a […]
A hard-hitting new United Nations report says Gaza could become uninhabitable in less than five years if current economic and population trends continue. It cites what it describes as the "de-development" of the blockaded coastal strip, which is at present home to some 1.8 million Palestinians but is expected to grow to 2.1 million by 2020. "D […]

(Mar 19, '15)
Why did so many Israeli voters switch their allegiance to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just before this week's election? The answer is simple and obvious: most of those small-party voters oppose a Palestinian state, and a day before the election Netanyahu ruled out a Palestinian state on his watch. (Mar 19, '15)
Seven years after Russia recognized Georgia's breakaway region of South Ossetia as an independent state, Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed an "alliance and integration treaty" with South Ossetia's de facto leader, Leonid Tibilovin. Georgia's Foreign Ministry said the pact amounted to the "actual annexation" of the […]
US fingerprints are all over a botched commando raid in the Philippines that left dozens dead. The episode has severely discredited the administration of Philippine President Benigno Aquino III, jeopardized decades of progress on peace talks with Moro separatists, and underlined the perils for developing-world governments that put themselves at the beck and […]
President Emomali Rahmon opened Tajikistan's new parliament on March 17 with a rousing, self-congratulatory speech. International observers may have found the March 1 parliamentarian elections to be full of fraud, but Rahmon felt the vote had represented the highest form of democracy. - Edward Lemon (Mar 19, '15)
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

14. Července francouzský president François Hollande v rozhovoru pro TF1 a France2 odmítl, že by Izrael disponoval atomovou bombou. Izrael však má 80 až 400 jaderných hlavic a použil již neutronové bomby proti civilistům. Je pan Hollande ignorant do té míry, že by měl být považován za nevhodného pro přebírání odpovědnosti šéfa ozbrojených a úderných sil, neb […]
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 […]
Předpokládajíc, že novináři pracují ve službách míru, přijala Rada bezpečnosti OSN jednomyslně rezoluci vytvořenou za účelem jejich ochrany v bojových zónách. Ovšem dva týdny nato vydalo Ministerstvo obrany USA instrukce k zadržení profesionálních pracovníků médií, kteří jsou angažovaní ve špionáži – jde o iniciativu, která se může obrátit proti novinářům z […]
Odpověď Tel-Avivu a Rijádu na jednání mezi USA a Íránem, je pokračující financování války v Gaze Saúdskou Arábií od roku 2008. Je to aliance koloniální státu a monarchie, která je nepřátelská vůči pokroku. Zatímco se Blízký východ deset let připravuje na změnu svých pravidel, zveřejnil Thierry Meyssan obsah tajných jednání mezi Rijádem a Tel Avivem. […]

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.
Dick Cheney is a former vice president who had an enormous effect on public policy, and therefore on history. He should be interviewed by media outlets. He should be asked tough questions about every single aspect of his tenure in the White House. We cannot pretend that Cheney does not belong in history books, or […]
For anyone with hopes of changing our foreign policy of relentless aggression, the presidential candidates now parading their wares before the public are truly a depressing sight.

Former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul lays out a national security strategy for the United States in his book, Swords into Plowshares, which Carl von Clausewitz , the author of On War, would have approved.

Rather than a contest between two or three viable candidates, U.S. presidential elections have historically been a referendum on the administration holding power. With at least some awareness of this fact, Republican candidates are busy criticizing President Barack Obama’s foreign policy and desperately trying to link Hillary Clinton, his former Secretary of […]
It would appear that the Abbott government has its heart set on bombing Syria. But it is hard to understand why. Unlike Australia’s complicity in the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, this proposal has nothing to do with consolidating the US alliance. Speaking about Islamic State’s (IS) presence in Iraq and Syria, Prime Minister […]
Ten weeks before the first U.S.-Soviet summit ever held in Moscow, in May 1972, North Vietnam, with Soviet-supplied armor and artillery, crossed the DMZ in an all-out offensive to overrun the South.

In 1915, a mother’s protest against funneling children into war became the theme of a new American song, “I Didn’t Raise My Boy to Be a Soldier.” Although the ballad attained great popularity, not everyone liked it.

The pattern is to ignore, downplay and mischaracterize Sanders' positions. Who knew, when Bernie Sanders announced a run in the Democratic primary, that not only would he meet with hostility from his main opponent's chief surrogates, but that the media would acquiesce and even collude to such a great degree?When analyzing the quantity and content o […]
Research shows 1.5 million households and 3 million children are living in desperate economic conditions. The World Bank and other global institutions use a very specific measure to record global poverty rates. They gather data designed to record the number of people in a country who live on less than $2 a day, and then use the information to make a “poverty […]
His popularity reveals much about the GOP psyche.

Strange things are going on at a government-run Facebook page.

After being preyed upon by Everest College, I’m now helping lead the first student-debt strike in America.

If you're seeing multiple warning signs or a progressive pattern develop, you should be concerned. Do you believe in love at first sight? A serendipitous meeting that changes everything?

The recent verdict by an Egyptian court that sent three Al Jazeera journalists to prison reflects that freedom of the press in Egypt doesn’t mean you can write against President Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi, and that the judiciary is to serve the dictatorship in Egypt.

The Gaza Strip is a tiny patch of land - just 362 square kilometres (225 square miles) - that is currently home to around 1.8 million Palestinians.

Sandwiched between Israel, Egypt and the Mediterr […]
The Israeli occupation has closed the doors to Al-Aqsa Mosque from 7.30am to 11.30am, during which they prevent worshippers from entering the mosque.

Of all the bizarre encounters the Palestinian conflict has generated, Tony Blair’s four meetings in Doha with Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal must surely rank as among the oddest.
