More Than A Few Bad Eggs: Industrial Farms Exploiting ‘Organic’ Label for Profit

Thanks to industrial food producers who are “gaming the system,” eggs labeled as “organic” may not be very different from the factory-farmed versions consumers are trying to avoid, warns a new report from the non-profit Cornucopia Institute. Indeed, for some large-scale producers, the label “appears to be nothing more than a profitable marketing term to apply to the agro-industrial production …

John Feffer – Trump, the Islamic State, and the Cliché of Civilizations

I was listening to a German parliamentarian the other night. She was making some anodyne comments about transatlantic friendship and the importance of culture. And then she veered off to mention the recent attacks in Paris and the threat of the Islamic State. This issue, she said, required an urgent response from the “free world.” The audience murmured its approval. …

Stephen Lendman – Russia’s First Week in Waging a “Real” War on Terror. 112 Targets Struck. ISIS Forces Retreating

In over a year of Washington’s phony war on ISIS, they’re stronger with more territory than when US bombing began – targeting Syrian and Iraqi infrastructure, not terrorist forces or facilities. On September 30, things changed markedly. Washington wants no interference in its policies. Putin’s intervention leveled the playing field. ISIS forces are panicking, retreating, hiding in residential areas and …

Joachim Hagopian – “Homegrown Terrorists”: New US Draconian Laws Usher in the New World Order

Duhaime’s legal definition of tyranny states: “A form of government other than a monarchy in which the formal written constitution is not adhered to and is broken by force of arms by a single person who then undertakes to rule as a monarch and primarily in his personal interests.” With his unprecedented number of oppressive executive orders bypassing both US …

Mac Slavo – Government Wants to “Implant Recipients of Welfare Assistance with Satellite-Tracked Chips”

Implantable RFID tracking chips. You know, to stop terrorism. And to keep tabs on all the welfare queens, in order to keep tax dollars accountable. There will be other rationales, too. But really, governments just want to do all the spying they can within their power – and right now, technology offers more power than ever before to carry out …

Mike Lofgren – The Soft Power Hoax

A recurrent buzz phrase of the Washington mandarinate in the last two decades has been “soft power.” The term was coined by Joseph Nye, a Harvard academic, in his 1990 book, Bound to Lead: The Changing Nature of American Power. What he meant by the term is that “when one country gets other countries to want what it wants [it] might …

Washington’s ‘New Middle East’ Stalls, the Resistance Rises By Prof. Tim Anderson

Washington’s plan for a New Middle East has hit a rock called Syria. After the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and the destruction of Libya, Syria was to be the next domino overthrown by a ‘colour revolution’, led by Islamists and backed by the big powers. After ‘regime change’ in Damascus the next most powerful enemy of Israel, Hezbollah, leader …

Honduras Bleeding by ERIC DRAITSER and RAMIRO S. FUNEZ

June 28 marked the six year anniversary of the military coup in Honduras – the day that a democratically elected left wing government was ousted by a US-backed, US-trained cabal of generals and right wing politicians and landowners. It could correctly be called a “Quiet Coup” primarily because it took place with very little fanfare from the corporate media which, to …

Truth Is A Crime Against The State – Paul Craig Roberts

The entire Western edifice rests on lies. There is no other foundation. Just lies. This makes truth an enemy. Enemies have to be suppressed, and thus truth has to be suppressed. Truth comes from foreign news sources, such as RT, and from Internet sites, such as this one. Thus, Washington and its vassals are busy at work closing down independent …
