Continue reading


The US Agency for International Development (USAID) was created by Pax Americana to provide a cover for CIA agents under the pretext of helping the 3rd World.

US pushes regime change in South Sudan; UN intervenes to protect rebel leader

The USA and its soon to be departed lap dog at the UN, Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, are pushing for regime change in South Sudan. The reason the USA wants to rid itself of President Salva Kiir, the internationally recognized leader of South Sudan and replace him with rebel leader Reik Machar is because the US wants to deny China access to Africa’s energy resources, with the Sudanese oil fields the only Chinese owned and operated in Africa. It’s that simple, the USA is destabilizing South Sudan to deny China oil, period. Continue reading

Tear gas “democracy”

CS gas, disingenuously called “tear gas” by the western media, is poisonous and can, and regularly does, kill people.
