The rising global movement that calls for #noTTIP

As the next round of negotiations for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) took place in Brussels last week, civil society groups were continuing to mobilise against this ongoing free trade agreement between the U.S. and EU that poses a threat to our public services, environment, food, privacy and democracy. On Saturday, around a thousand people occupied the square in front of the European Union’s base in London, UK, and demanded an end to the trade deal that is being described by the #noTTIP coalition of activists and organisations as an unprecedented corporate power-grab.

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark

NATO charter member Denmark has been a sycophantic ally of the United States for most of the years following the founding of the Western military alliance in 1949. Until 1949, many Danes favored the creation of a neutralist military bloc of Nordic nations that would steer clear of American and Soviet military alliances. This attitude by the Danes irked Washington. A recently declassified Central Intelligence Agency document titled Neutrality and Third Force Tendencies in Western Europe and dated December 19, 1950, bemoaned the presence of neutralists in Denmark . . .

Strategy of killing civilians in Gaza and eastern Ukraine has same culprits

(WMR)—The attack policy that the Israel Defense Force (IDF) has used in indiscriminately targeting civilians in Gaza mirrors the policy of the Ukrainian government in attacking civilians in eastern Ukraine. Moreover, the two operations, Israel’s “Protective Edge” and Ukraine’s “Anti-terrorist operation,” have something else in common. Both were developed by the same Zionist fascist elements who are calling the shots in Jerusalem and Kiev. Continue reading

Coincidence? Or attempted arm twisting? Continue reading

It has been a decade since Merck’s “super-aspirin” Vioxx was withdrawn from the market after a study showed it doubled the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

The World Cup and ‘Brazil’s Dance with the Devil’

Here in polyglot New York, pop into any bar, restaurant or even dry cleaner and chances are there’s a TV set tuned to the World Cup.

More questions than answers in Brussels museum shooting

(WMR)—Although French police continue to detain Mehdi Nemmouche, a French national who recently returned to France from Syria, there are more questions than answers in a shooting that WMR originally reported has all the markings of a false flag attack. Nemmouche is accused of killing an Israeli couple, a French volunteer, and a Belgian museum employee in the museum attack that came just prior to the European Parliament elections. Nemmouche is being held by French police for allegedly being found in possession of weapons, a large amount of ammunition, and a video claiming responsibility for the Brussels museum attack.

Bilderberg elite gather in Denmark to circle their wagons

It’s not easy these days being members of the world’s elite class of business tycoons, bankers, political leaders of various “neo”-ideology stripes, and “bought-and-paid for” members of the media. In the European elections, the people have spoken. What the European electorate had to say about the globalization promoted for years by the cabal of Bilderberg billionaires, politicians, and propagandists that gathers in different countries annually to plot their next moves is certainly not music to the ears of the elite. Continue reading

His well-equipped brigades were rapidly joined by officers from national army bases in the eastern parts of the country. Continue reading

The ‘Corker’ in U.S.-Russian relations

Merriam Webster’s English dictionary defines a “corker” as an “amusing person.” When it comes to drafting legislation to “punish” Russia with sanctions over the situation in Ukraine, Tennessee’s Republican Senator and ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Bob Corker certainly lives up to his name . . .

American defense contractors profiting from Russian and Chinese engineering, technology, manpower

It is a fine thing that Boeing is supporting STEM education in China. But as part of the American Defense Industrial Base Critical Infrastructure, Boeing regularly moans about the dearth of America’s own STEM/ aerospace engineering capability. For example, in a glossy publication from 2007 comes the article Engineering Brain Drain? by Louise Wilkerson, in which the reader learns that “According to a recent study by Aviation Week & Space Technology magazine, the United States is turning out only about 110,000 engineers a year compared with China’s 600,000 a year and India’s 350,000 a year.” Continue reading

Doctor Strangelove returns as General Breedlove

In Stanley Kubrick’s 1954 madcap dark comedy “Dr. Strangelove,” the clearly demented main character is a former scientist for Adolf Hitler who ends up as a military adviser to a fictional American president involved in a nuclear standoff with the Soviet Union. The Strangelove character was not merely a figment of Kubrick’s otherwise brilliant imagination. Dr. Strangelove, who urges a massive nuclear strike on the Soviet Union, is based on two immigrant Cold Warriors from Europe possessing doctoral degrees: Dr. Henry Kissinger, the Machiavellian national security adviser President Richard Nixon and Russian affairs adviser to President Barack Obama, and Dr. Edward Teller, the father of America’s hydrogen bomb. In real life, Kissinger, a German and an alleged Jew, and Teller, a Hungarian, brought their anti-Russian European political “baggage” to bear on America’s policy toward Moscow during the height of the Cold War. Kissinger and Teller, like the revenge-seeking Nazi, Strangelove, wanted Russia punished for personal political reasons. Continue reading

Ukraine’s steady transformation to a Fourth Reich nation

(WMR)—Not since the end of World War II has the world seen anything as close to a Fourth Reich recreation of a Third Reich regime as it has seen in Ukraine.

The destabilization of a friendly neighbor by infiltrating and radicalizing secessionist groups

It happened closer to home than you might think

(WMR)—A nuclear-armed superpower deployed intelligence operatives to a neighboring country. The intelligence agents immediately set about to infiltrate a radical secessionist movement in order to push it toward committing acts of kidnapping, assassination, and other violence. After the kidnapping of a foreign diplomat, the central government invoked draconian national security and war measures statutes, suspending civil liberties. The secessionists, who demanded their language, cultural, and political rights within a supposed “federal” system, were demonized by the foreign-led infiltration and radicalization of their movement. Continue reading

Latin American nations under assault in massive Obama campaign of aggression

(WMR)—President Obama reversed the largely “benign neglect” of his predecessor toward the wave of progressive governments coming to power in Latin America and, at some time during his administration, he signed a classified presidential Finding” to do whatever is necessary to oust left-leaning governments in the Western Hemisphere and replace them with docile, pro-American ones.

Fiery chaos in Odessa: 42 perish after Ukrainians launch Waco-like assault

The group behind the clashes is Right Sector, the strike force of the U.S.-backed coup that overthrew Ukraine's government

The death toll in Odessa stands at 42 people killed, most of them burned to death or suffocated by smoke inhalation in the inferno at the Trade Unions House. There is no dispute over who were the victims and who were their killers. The victims were pro-Russian protesters who had occupied the building. The attackers who set fire to it with petrol bombs were members of Right Sector, the ultra-Nationalist strike force of the U.S.-backed coup that overthrew the elected government of Ukraine in February.
