The Brexit reshuffles world geopolitics by Thierry Meyssan

While the world Press is searching for ways to re-start the reconstruction of Europe, still without Russia and now without the United Kingdom, Thierry Meyssan considers that nothing can now prevent the collapse of the system. However, he points out, what is at stake is not the European Union itself, but the institutions which enable […]

US, UK, and EU, Are Now Dictatorships

How can it be that in virtually all of the Presidential-candidate head-to-head Democratic versus Republican polling that was done of both Democratic and Republican candidates during the primaries, the preferred Democratic candidate against any one of the Republican candidates was Bernie Sanders, but he almost certainly won’t be that Party’s nominee (and there’s more on that here); and the preferred […]

Surging Towards yet Another War

On 10 May 2016 the United States navigated closer to war. Not content with having created chaos from Afghanistan to Libya and menacing Russia along its borders, the administration in Washington ordered a guided missile destroyer, USS William P Lawrence, to carry out manoeuvres within 12 nautical miles of Fiery Cross Reef in the South China Sea. […]

The techniques of modern military propaganda by Thierry Meyssan

Propaganda is as old as human society. However, it developed considerably during the age of mass society, and now follows strict rules. Thierry Meyssan looks at the history and the principles of the science of lying. The word «propaganda» refers to the Roman organisation whose job was to propagate Catholicism over Protestantism, the «Congregatio de […]

Trade Deals and the Environmental Crisis

Rob Urie is an artist and political economist. His book Zen Economics is published by CounterPunch Books With the release of leaked documents from the TTIP (Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) ‘trade’ deal Greenpeace framed its conclusions more diplomatically than I will: the actions of the U.S. political leadership undertaken at the behest of American corporate ‘leaders’ […]

America’s Biggest of All Big Lies (II)

  The use of ‘Crimea’ as an excuse for this restoration of the «Cold War» (which is already a hot war in Ukraine, Syria, and other lands, where the US sees fit to replace leaders that ally with Russia), is just as bogus as is the use of ‘Iranian nuclear weapons’ as an excuse for installing SDI. […]

President Killary — Paul Craig Roberts

Trans-Atlantic & Trans-Pacific “Partnerships” Complete Corporate World Takeover — Paul Craig Roberts

Trans-Atlantic & Trans-Pacific “Partnerships” Complete Corporate World Takeover Paul Craig Roberts As I have emphasized since these “partnerships” were first announced, their purpose is to give corporations immunity from the laws in the countries in which they do business.

The US Central Intelligence Agency, rather than attempt to deter massive leaks of sensitive documents, including classified US government materials, has figured out it is much more advantageous to «cherry pick» certain information and then release it as «major news» to a corporate media eager and willing to run with what they are handed. Such […]

British Conservative Breaks Ranks, Opposes TTIP

It’s as if, say, during the Republican Administration of US President George Herbert Walker Bush, the person who had negotiated international trade deals for the prior President, the Republican Ronald Reagan, came out publicly against a mega-‘trade’ deal that his fellow-Party-member, President Bush, was ardently trying to get approved. That is extremely breaking ranks, and it happened […]

Where are Marx and Lenin when we need them? — Paul Craig Roberts

Marx and Lenin were ahead of their time. Marx wrote before offshoring of jobs and the financialization of the economy. Lenin presided over a communist revolution that jumped the gun by taking place in a country in which feudal elements still predominated over capitalism. In 21st century America capitalism has been unfettered from the regulations that […]

ISIS: US-Saudi Plague Reaches Indonesia?

ISIS attacks conveniently mesh with Washington’s growing frustration with Jakarta and its expanding ties with China. Coordinated bombings and mass shootings struck Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta on Thursday leaving several dead and many more wounded. The pattern matched that of attacks carried out last year in Paris, France, where known terrorists Western intelligence agencies were tracking, some […]
