“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."
Russia has stated it will respond to the deployment of elements of a NATO missile defense system (NMD / Euro-ABM) in Norwegian territory.

While the sanctions placed on Iraq by the United Nations Security Council in the 1990s may be a distant memory for some, it's critical to remember the shameful aftermath as the Trump administration undertakes the sanctioning of certain specific individuals in Syria. No matter the position one might take on the issue of sanctions, the fact remains that t […]
Swimming is a sport that we seem to do often when we're young and then slack off on as we age. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in fact, 36 percent of children aged 7 - 17 years old swim at least six times a year, compared to only 15 percent of adults. (1) But if you haven't hit the pool in some time or find yourself swimming only during warmer […]
Key Israel lobby groups have conceded that they have failed to counter the Palestine solidarity movement, despite vastly increasing their spending.

North Korea has promised to sink a US submarine currently deployed in South Korean waters if the Americans take provocative action.

Texas police searching for a missing officer in the Lone Star State now believe that he faked his own death and fled across the border to Mexico. The mystery surrounding the disappearance of Austin police officer Coleman Miller Martin began on Tuesday when his wife made a 911 call reporting that her husband was suicidal. Throughout the day, Martin had been s […]
Palestine never existed — or so, I have often been told, is a stock Zionist claim. But what is meant by Palestine having, or having not, 'existed'? Humans have lived and died in the region we call Palestine for about as long as our species has walked the earth, regardless of who had the biggest club, the grandest throne, or the most F16s. What does […]

Během několika málo měsíců prošel obsah západních a mezinárodních médií hlubokými změnami. Jsme svědky vzniku jakési dominantní entity (mediální kliky), o které nevíme skoro vůbec nic (ani o jejích tvůrcích, ani o jejích skutečných záměrech), ale jejíž tvrdě protidemokratické důsledky jsou nepřehlédnutelné.
Tento článek je varující: V listopadu 2016 byl vytvořen široký agitační a propagační systém, jehož cílem je ničit reputaci a autoritu prezidenta Trumpa od prvního okamžiku, kdy tento vstoupí do Bílého domu.
Válka v Sýrii je první válkou, která se v naší současné, digitální éře vedla po více jak šest let. Tuny dokumentů, které měly zůstat v tajnosti po celá léta, se již začaly zveřejňovat. Ačkoliv byly uveřejněny v jiných zemích, aby se o nich mezinárodní veřejnost nedozvěděla, jsme již dnes schopni si sestavit, kousek po kousku, celkový obraz věcí, jak se asi u […]
Osvobození Aleppa znamená konec pokusu svrhnout vládu Syrské arabské republiky. Bylo to možné pouze díky odstoupení Kataru a částečné změny pozice Turecka. Avšak část Sýrie je pořád obsazena džihádisty ve službách NATO. Další vojenské vítězství a konec války proto závisí na tajných jednáních, která teprve začínají mezi členy Severoatlantické aliance. […]
Po zpochybnění důvěryhodnosti Dilmy Rousseff (v Brazílii) parlamentem a po příchodu Mauricia Macriho do Casa Rosada v Argentině se Spojené státy zoufale snaží zvýšit svou vojenskou přítomnost v Latinské Americe, soustřeďujíce svou pozornost na Jižní cíp (tj. Chile, Argentinu a Uruguay). Peru, členský stát Pacifické aliance, je nejnovější obětí imperiálních a […]
Zatímco atlantický tisk pokračuje ve falešné debatě o Donalda Trumpovi, vnucené během kampaně Hillary Clintonovou, a zároveň vyzývá k atentátu na zvoleného prezidenta, chystá se Trump změnit paradigma a svrhnout puritánskou ideologii, které jeho zemi vládne po dvě staletí. Ale může uspět?
Tribunály v Norimberku a Tokiu umožnily spojencům odhalit zločiny, které spáchala Osa zla během druhé světové války, a také posloužily k tomu, že ospravedlnily jak cenu za vítězství, tak za nadvládu nad světem. Na základě tohoto modelu Washington uvěřil, že může soudit a nakonec odsoudit 120 syrských představitelů, včetně prezidenta Bašára Assada, aby tak os […]
Thierry Meyssan pokračuje ve svém příběhu o válce, kterou nastartoval Washington a jeho spojenci proti zbytku světa. Do boje vstoupil Egypt. Izrael napadl Sýrii. Turecko navzdory protestům Bagdádu udržuje své jednotky v Iráku. Míříme k pátému rusko-čínskému vetu v Radě bezpečnosti OSN, které bude tentokrát uplatněno proti francouzskému návrhu rezoluce. […]
Po pěti letech války v Sýrii spadly masky. Zveřejnění textu rusko-americké dohody odhaluje skryté záměry obou velmocí – Washington chce přerušit „Hedvábnou stezku“, zatímco Moskva chce zničit džihádisty. Kromě toho, selhání této dohody a debaty v Radě bezpečnosti OSN demonstrují surrealistický charakter rétoriky prezidenta Obamy – během pěti let nebyl schope […]
Vážený pane předsedo, vážené poslankyně a vážení poslanci Evropského parlamentu, stál jsem zde před rokem a řekl jsem vám, že naše Unie není v dobrém stavu.

There’s little more we can do than hope that some cool heads around Donald Trump are telling him he’d be nuts to attack North Korea. I don’t know who they might be. Still, we must hope.

A lot of my job as editorial director of Antiwar.com is cutting through the veil of obfuscation with which the War Party masks its ill intentions. But sometimes you don’t even have to read between the lines to see what our conniving rulers are up to. Such is the case with the current war scare […]
Has President Donald Trump outsourced foreign policy to the generals? So it would seem. Candidate Trump held out his hand to Vladimir Putin. He rejected further U.S. intervention in Syria other than to smash ISIS. He spoke of getting out and staying out of the misbegotten Middle East wars into which Presidents Bush II and […]
Originally posted at TomDispatch. If you’re a reader of TomDispatch, then you know something of real importance about this country that most Americans don’t.

Israel has resorted to three main strategies to suppress Palestinian calls for justice and human rights, including the Right of Return for refugees. One is dedicated to rewriting history; another attempts to distract from present realities altogether and a third aims at reclaiming the Palestinian narrative as essentially an Israeli one. The rewriting of hist […]
A trio of academics compare the tactics to Wall Street's raiders.

Los Angeles and New York lead the way as diverse communities of workers and immigrants fight for their rights against the Trump administration.

Opponents fear the bill could be interpreted as an invitation to mow down protesters. The North Carolina House of Representatives just passed a bill that could protect drivers who hit pedestrians with their vehicles during street demonstrations. State representatives approved legislation April 27 that removes civil liability from drivers if they hit pedestri […]
New research claims that stress exerts a far heavier physical toll than previously understood. There is a scene in James Redford’s new film, Resilience, in which a paediatrician cites a parental misdeed so outmoded as to seem bizarre. “Parents used to smoke in the car with kids in the back and the windows rolled up,” she says, incredulous. How long ago those […]
The U.S. strikes in Syria and Afghanistan seem to be more about Trump acquiring a “presidential” aura and legitimacy than about making the world a safer place. Within a week, United States President Donald Trump authorised two major strikes—one against the Syrian Air Force and the other against an ISIS base in Afghanistan. Both of these strikes came with lit […]

As uneaten food rots in landfills, it releases a greenhouse gas more potent than carbon dioxide. “Sell by.” “Use by.” “Best by.” These terms and their many variations have probably caused you to toss perfectly good food just because the date on the label has passed.

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. It lawlessly declared it State Land. It’s to establish a Gva’ot settlement. It’s located south of Bethlehem. It’s in the Southern West Bank. Peace Now calls itself “the leading […]
We must admit we are living in the golden age of Jewish anti-Zionism. A young Maine director, Eric Axelman, is doing a film about the American Jewish responsibility for the occupation. US Jews have the "magic stick" to change Israel, a Palestinian tells him.
"No one in our family was ever as passionate about Israel as me, and now I’m the most critical." Liz Rose meditates on her summer in 1986, at the Alexander Muss High School, when she fell in love with Jerusalem.
What is meant by Palestine having, or having not, ‘existed’?

Palestine includes regions that are among the longest inhabited on earth.
There is no proportionality applied to the question of foreign interference in U.S. politics. If there were, we would have a far more substantive investigation of Israel than Russia. But if anyone mentions the truth about Israel’s clout, the person is immediately smeared as “anti-Semitic” and targeted by Israel’s extraordinarily sophisticated lobby and its m […]

Ron Fox, a 77-year-old Jewish Democrat in Mass., urges the party's state committee to condemn Israeli settlements: "For 45 years, not a day has gone by that I have not thought about human rights violations caused by settlements."
When Israeli soldiers carried her novel in one hand and a gun in the other into Gaza in 2014, trying to kill "bad guys," that was all that a writer could ask for her work, Israeli writer Dorit Rabinyan says in New York, in a tour sponsored by the Israeli Foreign Ministry.
Zeena Ismail says the call to support hunger striking Palestinian prisoners is a call to support humanity: "I could write a brief history recap on the conflict, but in all honesty, there is plenty out there for one to educate themselves about the topic without bias and with reason. This is why I will refrain from making a case for these prisoners simply […]

Beltane – Walpurgis Siegesfest der Sonne Dies war ja eines der wichtigsten Feste überhaupt und vielleicht kann man seine Bedeutung ein bißchen aus dem Folgenden erkennen.

Das Thema Doping wurde in den letzten Jahren zu einer ständigen Begleiterscheinung des Spitzensports. Allseits wird Doping im Sport abgelehnt, werden die Dopingsünder als Betrüger und die vermeintlich „sauberen“ Verlierer als die Betrogenen verstanden. Die Dopingtat wird als schändlich, im Mindesten als unfair bewertet. Dementsprechend ist das öffentliche un […]

Es ist offensichtlich, dass Nordkoreas Regime ein großer Fan der Kriegslobby des "Westens" ist.

Kritik am OAS-Austritt kam von der venezolanischen Opposition. Nach Ansicht von Parlamentspräsident Julio Borges hat die Regierung damit die "denkbar schlechteste Entscheidung" getroffen.

Vizeaußenminister Samuel Moncada, der Venezuela in der Sitzung vertrat, bezichtigte den Staatenbund der Einmischung in innere Angelegenheiten.
