William Dunkerley – Zbigniew Brzezinski, Are You Nuts?

October 9, 2015

An October 5 headline in Politico screamed out, “Brzezinski: Obama should retaliate if Russia doesn’t stop attacking US assets.” Think about that: it sounds like Zbigniew Brzezinski, national security advisor in the Carter administration, is advocating a direct confrontation between the world’s two nuclear superpowers. Either country has the resources to wipe the other off the face of the earth. Some say it could mean the end of human civilization as we know it today. But if Russia is attacking US assets, that must certainly invite a reasonable response, right? Read

Adam Johnson – Democrats Have Better Grammar Than Republicans, Study Reveals

October 8, 2015

Democrats convinced they are smarter and better educated than their Republican friends and family may be right after all—at least in terms of being able to speak the English language properly. A new “study” [3] done by the grammar app Grammarly examined the Facebook comments of the supporters of all major Presidential candidates and noticed some startling patterns. According to USA Today: Supporters commenting on Democratic candidates’ Facebook pages made an average of 4.2 mistakes per 100 words compared to 8.7 mistakes for supporters of Republican candidates. The Democratic supporters also showed a larger vocabulary, using on average 300 unique words per 1,000 words, while Republicans used only 245. Read

Rachael Bade – Employee at Clinton’s email hosting company feared a cover-up Platte River Networks said they were asked to limit backups of her server.

October 8, 2015

An employee at the tech company that maintained Hillary Clinton’s homemade email server was concerned that instructions from Clinton’s representatives would have the tech firm “covering up some shaddy [sic] shit,” according to emails obtained by Senate investigators. Employees at Denver-based Platte River Networks in a mid-August email chain were trying to find records that showed that the Clinton Executive Service Corp., the company paying the Platte River bill, had instructed them to reduce the length of time backups of Clinton’s emails were kept.

Robert Parry – Obama Boots Syrian Peace Chance

October 7, 2015

President Barack Obama is turning his back on possibly the last best chance to resolve the bloody Syrian war because he fears a backlash from Official Washington’s powerful coalition of neoconservatives and “liberal interventionists” along with their foreign fellow-travelers: Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Gulf sheikdoms. The route toward peace would be to collaborate with Russia and Iran to get Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to accept a power-sharing unity government that would fairly represent Syria’s major religious and ethnic groups – Christians, Alawites, Shiites and moderate Sunnis – along with a commitment for free, internationally monitored elections once adequate security is restored.

Gerry Docherty and Jim Macgregor – New World Order: The Founding Fathers

October 7, 2015

This article was first published in July 2013 Rich and powerful elites have long dreamed of world control. The ambitious Romans, Attila the Hun, great Muslim leaders of Medieval Spain, the Mughals of India all exercised immense influence over different parts of the globe in set periods of recognised ascendancy. Sometimes tribal, sometimes national, sometimes religious, often dynastic, their success defined epochs, but was never effectively global until the twentieth century. At that point, with the future of the British Empire under threat from other aspiring nations, in particular Germany , a momentous decision was taken by a group of powerful and determined men, that direct action had to be taken to assert their control, and that of the British race, over the entire civilised world. It has grown from that tiny select cabal into a monster that may already be beyond control. Read

SARAH WESTWOOD – Hillary’s surprising ties to Tony Blair

October 7, 2015

Hillary Clinton and Tony Blair, the former prime minister of Britain, enjoyed a close personal relationship that allowed them to collude on a number of foreign policy issues behind the scenes. Blair went from helping the former secretary of state make moves in the Middle East to joining former Clinton insiders at a well-connected consulting firm whose work has stoked concerns that the Clintons help their friends profit off their personal ties. Additional details about Blair’s relationship with Clinton have emerged in several batches of private emails that have been released by the State Department at the end of each month, including those published Wednesday.

Big U.S. firms hold $2.1 trillion overseas to avoid taxes: study

October 6, 2015

The 500 largest American companies hold more than $2.1 trillion in accumulated profits offshore to avoid U.S. taxes and would collectively owe an estimated $620 billion in U.S. taxes if they repatriated the funds, according to a study released on Tuesday. The study, by two left-leaning non-profit groups, found that nearly three-quarters of the firms on the Fortune 500 list of biggest American companies by gross revenue operate tax haven subsidiaries in countries like Bermuda, Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.

Paul Craig Roberts – This Has Become Routine

October 6, 2015

In his comment on the mass shootings at the Oregon community college, President Obama said: “This has become routine.” So have police shootings of unarmed and unresisting Americans. So have numerous other undesirable and deplorable happenings, such as the foreclosure on the homes of millions of Americans, while the “banks too big to fail” are bailed out with trillions of dollars, and such as foreign policy lies that have destroyed seven countries, bringing the US and Europe millions of refugees. In addition there are the foreign policy lies that have brought the US and Europe into conflict with Russia, and the economic lies that shield the extraordinary concentration of income and wealth of the One Percent.

Jonathan Latham – What Happened to Obama’s Promise to Restore Scientific Integrity?

October 5, 2015

Pretty much every branch of the US government has had trouble implementing President Obama’s flagship scientific integrity policy. In 2011, the US Department of the Interior (DOI) appointed the scientist Dr. Paul Houser to be its first ever Officer of Scientific Integrity. Within a year he was fired. Believing his dismissal was for drawing attention to a scientifically questionable Department policy, Houser formallyaccused the DOI of “scientific and scholarly misconduct and reprisal.” But because the Department of the Interior had fired him, they no longer had a scientific integrity officer for him to complain to. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has had a new scientific integrity policy since 2013. Despite that policy, the non-profit Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) recently petitioned USDA saying that “suppression and alteration of scientific work for political reasons remain common at USDA” and that agency scientists “routinely suffer retaliation and harassment” when their work offends agribusiness.About the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the worst that had been said was that, four years after the President’s promise, the agency still had not hired anyone; plus that its outline for a Scientific Integrity Plan lacked integrity. But that was before publication of its first ever Scientific Integrity report. Read

Colin Chilcoat – Clinton A Continuation Of Obama On Energy

October 2, 2015

Primary season doesn’t begin for another 4 months, and the general election is still more than a year out. Undoubtedly, no lead is safe, but the Democratic ticket has seen far fewer of the swings that have characterized the GOP’s curious circus. Despite her recent troubles, Hillary Clinton is still the most sure bet to win the Democratic nod—though her chances in the general election are anything but. Issues like immigration and Planned Parenthood are polarizing, with little middle ground. Energy policies however, allow for a greater deal of personalization as the candidates try to appeal to both their base and, more importantly, undecided moderates. Read
