The Transatlantic and Transpacific Trade and Investment Partnerships have nothing to do with free trade. “Free trade” is used as a disguise to hide the power these agreements give to corporations to use law suits to overturn sovereign laws of nations that regulate pollution, food safety, GMOs and minimum wages.
Russia faces the renewal of conflict in Ukraine simultaneously with three more Ukraine-type situations along its Asian border. And this is only the beginning of the pressure that Washington is mounting on Russia.
The federal government has announced that thousands of additional U.S. soldiers are being sent to Liberia. General Gary Volesky said the troops would “stamp out” Ebola. The official story is that combat troops are being sent to build treatment structures for those infected with Ebola.
The latest absurdity coming out of Ukraine, the EU and Washington is that the humanitarian aid that Russia and the Red Cross are trucking into the former Russian territories that comprise eastern Ukraine is a trick, a deception, a pretext for Russia’s invasion forces.
Government is complicit in the price suppression and manipulation of gold and silver and welcomes the insider trading that helps to achieve this result. The conclusion is inescapable: If illegality benefits the machinations of the U.S. government, the U.S. government is all for illegality.
Massive money creation and huge fiscal deficits have protected the balance sheets of “banks too big to fail” but have harmed the American people. Retirees and pension funds have been deprived for years of interest income as the Federal Reserve engineered zero or negative interest rates.
In my day, if an experienced professor of international and Constitutional law such as University of Illinois Professor Francis A. Boyle called for impeachment of a President, it was a serious situation for the President. But no more.
Just as the U.S government falsely claims that Russia invaded Ukraine and annexed Crimea, that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, that Assad used chemical weapons on Syrians, and so forth and so on, the 6.3 percent unemployment rate is just another government lie.
The U.S. economy is a house of cards. Every aspect of it is fraudulent, and the illusion of recovery is created with fraudulent statistics. American capitalism itself is an illusion. […]
The Obama regime, wallowing in hubris and arrogance, has recklessly escalated the Ukrainian crisis into a crisis with Russia. Whether intentionally or stupidly, Washington’s propagandistic lies are driving the crisis to war. Unwilling to listen to any more of Washington’s senseless threats, Moscow no longer accepts telephone calls from Obama and U.S. top officials.
I doubt that the Ukraine crisis precipitated by Washington’s overthrow of the democratic government is over. Washington has won the propaganda war everywhere outside of Russia and Ukraine itself.
A number of confirmations have come in from readers that Washington is fueling the violent protests in Ukraine with our taxpayer dollars. Washington has no money for food stamps or to prevent home foreclosures, but it has plenty of money with which to subvert Ukraine.
Five Gestapo wannabes told Congress that Edward Snowden, who is under the protection of the Russian government, must be made to give back the evidence of National Security Agency spying on the entire world.
Years ago when I described the George W. Bush regime as a police state, right-wing eyebrows were raised. When I described the Barack Obama regime as an even worse police state, liberals rolled their eyes. Alas! Now I am no longer controversial. Everybody says it.
Since 2006, the U.S. dollar has experienced a one-quarter to one-third drop in value to the Chinese yuan, depending on the choice of base. Now China is going to let the dollar decline further in value. The dollar’s role as reserve currency is coming to an end.
Many people are asking what can be done to stop the pending U.S. attack on Syria. Two things can be done: The U.S. Congress can realize that it does not save America’s face for Congress to endorse a policy that has been rejected by the rest of the world and world governments can make it clear to Washington that the U.S. government is not above the law and will be held accountable.
There’s the old saying that if the government fears the people, there is liberty; but if the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The criminals in Washington not only do not fear us, they do not respect us. Washington looks upon Americans as stupid sheeple.
The American people have suffered a coup d’état, but they are hesitant to acknowledge it. The regime ruling in Washington today lacks Constitutional and legal legitimacy. Americans are ruled by usurpers who claim that the executive branch is above the law and that the U.S. Constitution is a mere “scrap of paper.”
No one likes a bully, and Washington’s NATO puppets have been bullied for six decades. British prime ministers, German chancellors and French presidents have to salute and say, “Yes, sir.” They all hate it, but they love Washington’s money; so they prostitute themselves and their countries for Washington’s money.
The gangster government in Washington that has everything to hide is now in the National Security Agency’s hands and will follow orders. The pretense that amerika is a democracy responsible to the people has been exposed. The United States is run by and for the NSA.
The United States government has been at war for 11 years. The U.S. military destroyed Iraq, leaving the country and millions of lives in ruins and releasing sectarian blood-letting that had been kept in check by the secular Saddam Hussein government. On any given day in “liberated” Iraq, the death toll is as high as during the height of the U.S. attempted occupation.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. economy created 236,000 new jobs in February. If you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I’ll let you have at a good price.
Republicans and conservative Americans are still fighting Big Government in its welfare state form. Apparently, they have never heard of the militarized police state form of Big Government; or, if they have, they are comfortable with it and have no objection.
