Different Boy, Same Game By S. Artesian

27 April 2015 — The Wolf Report: Nonconfidential analysis for the anti-investor

Here’s the thing about history: it always, but always, out-goofs me.  I mean I’ve been known to use hyperbole, satire, spoof, sarcasm, exaggeration, and near-drunk hallucination to illuminate the macabre humor, the grinning madness that is the result of, and circulates with value production, but I’m an amateur, a naïf, when compared to what capitalism and its attenuated attendants come up with, and come up with constantly, and with straight faces…unlike me.   Example, you ask?  Example you get.  There’s this gem, this perfect, this flawless, this naïf story:

‘The time is here to be seized’ By A. Sivanandan

23 April 2015 —

Neoliberalism is not working. All that stuff, about wealth trickling down, no society only individuals, the market as the regulator of everything, is shown to be false in terms of everyday reality. What Tory ideology has produced on the ground are closures to libraries, youth centres, hospitals, the selling off of whole housing estates, benefit caps, workfare programmes. The combination of austerity and marketisation has impacted on the sheer need to exist.

Ground Phase of Operation to Establish Control over Yemen Starts on Saudi Soil

25.04.2015 | 11:18 | Nikolai BOBKIN

…Saudi Arabia’s King Salman on April 21 ordered the Saudi Arabian National Guard, widely regarded as the kingdom’s best equipped military ground force, to take part in Riyadh’s campaign against Iran-allied Houthi rebels in Yemen… The National Guard is a separate military structure run by its own ministry. It will be responsible for control of border and Shia-populated areas. This is especially important because the Saudis started the ground phase of the operation on their own soil. Saudi Shiites have demonstrated to protest the intervention by Sunni regimes into Yemeni conflict…

Seeking Hillary’s Favor: Dyson Attacks Cornel West

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

Michael Eric Dyson has never produced even a few words of substantive critique of President Obama’s wars, his “Grand Bargain” with the GOP, or his role in the economic collapse of Black America. Instead, Dyson has written a hit-piece on Dr. Cornel West. “The true purpose of his elongated smear of Dr. West is to demonstrate to Hillary Clinton’s camp that Dyson remains a loyal Democratic Party operative who is available for service to the new regime.”

Political Successors of Banderite Killers Slap Poland in the Face

18.04.2015 | 00:03 | Nikolai MALISHEVSKI

The Polish social democratic political party Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) considers the Ukrainian parliament’s recent recognition of the UPA as fighters for independence to be an insult to Poland and its President, Bronislaw Komorowski, an SLD representative stated at a press conference on April 12. The UPA is the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, a wing of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN). In the days of the Second World War it collaborated with Hitler’s Germany, including the Wehrmacht, police and security services. Continue reading this...

Marketing2U – has your health information been sold to direct marketers?

16 April 2015 — medConfidential

For years, we’ve had credible reports of highly accurate marketing that could only be based on health records. Now reports in the media have revealed “a nice little trade” in your health records – and that’s the Information Commissioner’s description, not ours.

These latest reports reveal two ways in which information about your health may be collected and sold on: from insurance forms you fill in and, in particular instances, from information provided to “the UK’s largest online pharmacy”, Pharmacy2U.

GLENprotest4Black People Must Police Themselves

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

When police murder Black people on the streets of U.S. cities, they do not think they are behaving like “rogue” cops or “bad apples.” Rather, most of them believe – and are encouraged in believing – that they are protecting and serving their communities. The central question task of the Black Lives Matter mobilization must become empowering the Black community to protect and police itself – with the understanding that this cannot occur without an insurgency.
