Update on the site

17 April 2014

Ok, I have found the cause but as yet no solution to the problem.

The site now at least is back to normal speed but all my connections to wordpress.com (these cover spam filtering, site stats, rss feeds, twitter connection and a bunch of other utilities) no longer function due to the fact that there is some kind of block on them at the wordpress.com end. I wait in vain for some kind of reply from wordpress.

Are Black “Success Stories” Really Holding Us Back?

By BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

Is it time to critically interrogate the black “success stories” of pro atheletes and near-billionaires? Should we be identifying with the Junior Bridgemans and Magic Johnsons or with their thousands of underpaid and cheated workers? And what would a more reproducible black “success story” really look like?

As the tanks roll in, the USA/EU/NATO imperialist axis that has almost destroyed the Ukraine plans ever closer co-operation

16 April 2014 — Dispatches from the Empire

On Sunday John Brennan, the CIA Director, paid a secret visit to the Ukraine. Within 48 hours, Ukrainian armed services launched a controlled assault against rebel positions in the Eastern Ukraine. Repeated claims by the Ukrainian regime and its sponsors in Brussels and Washington that this is an anti-terrorist operation are distortions of reality. The rebellion in the East has genuine popular support, but the mainstream media, the USA/EU/NATO axis, and its puppet regime in the Ukraine cannot allow this fact to become widely known and understood because then people might start to ask questions, like:

It seems that there are yet more problems with the site that may or may not be related to how long it takes to load a page. I’m trying to figure out what’s going on, but so far no luck. Will keep you posted on this.

8 April 2014 — New Eastern Outlook

Press Kit on Human Rights in Ukraine By Oriental Review

8 April 2014 — Oriental Review

Press Kit on Human Rights in UkraineThe flywheel of political repressions in Ukraine is gaining momentum these days. In sharp contrast with the liberal approach by president Yanukovych to the “Euromaidan” rout, the interim Kievan administration did not hesitate much about cracking down the public uprising against the “neo-Nazi regime” on the rise in the East and South of Ukraine. Today only in Kharkov at least 70 activists have been arrested during the so-called “anti-terrorist operation”. According to the reports, foreign mercenaries presumably from the US Greystone Ltd private military contractor firm were participating in the operation along with the National Guard (majorly consisting of the ultranationalist Pravy (Right) Sector fighters) and some loyal Interior Ministry units.
