Finance Capital and Neo-Fascism: The French Elections Mirror the Crises of Western States
By Abayomi Azikiwe, April 26, 2017
A runoff between National Front leader Marine Le Pen and the 39-year-old banker and former Minister of Finance Emmanuel Macron’s En Marche (Onwards) is slated for May 7.
These two candidates represent the dominant sectors within the French ruling class being the aggressive anti-immigrant and neo-fascist electorate and the pro-European Union (EU) elements who view the status quo as sufficient to guarantee the continuation of capitalism and Paris’ role in the international division of economic power and labor. Neither party nor movement, in the situation of Macron’s En Marche, represents any clear vision of a prosperous future for the people of France. Continue reading this...

By Hugo Turner, April 24, 2017
Trump is massively expanding every dirty war and destabilization campaign the Empire is involved in and doubtless in future months we will learn of countries now peaceful being thrown into chaos as a result of CIA/NED operations now being launched of which we have no idea. We can only hope that Russia and China are working on some plans of their own. Continue reading this...

Earth Day 2017: Humans Are The Most Destructive Species On Earth
By Pratap Antony, April 20, 2017
Our planet is not in danger. Humans are in danger. From ourselves. Humankind is on the road to extinguish ourselves. Sooner rather than later. The future for all of us is bleak. The planet will continue as it has for the 99% of the time before man, it will adjust and continue. Perhaps with other life forms, other vegetation, other landscapes. Continue reading this...

Who is the Butcher, Mr. Trump?
What kind of president do we have?
Cynical and diabolical? The plush dinner event with China’s president Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago on the evening of April 6 was carefully planned to coincide with Trump’s missile strikes against Syria.
Xi and Trump were accompanied by their wives; guests, family members and high-level officials from both countries were in attendance at the Palm Beach Mar-a Lago “replicate” of Rome’s Palazzo Chigi 16th Century dining room. Continue reading this...

End Game: The War Machine Goes On
By Arthur D. Robbins, April 20, 2017
To yearn for peace is to embrace war. What we need is a society where war and peace are not two choices, like night and day. What we need is a society in which war is not an option, where peace becomes irrelevant. Perhaps JFK got it right when he said, what we want is not peace but, “a warless world founded in warless societies.” (Carroll, 285) Continue reading this...

North Korea: If We are Attacked, “We Will Not Keep our Arms Crossed … We are Fully Prepared”
By Prof Michel Chossudovsky, April 14 2017
Misunderstanding prevails regarding the threat of a US preemptive strike against North Korea. The intentions of the Pentagon are unclear. Moreover, Washington does not have the endorsement of its regional allies including South Korea and Japan. In the wake of ROK President Park’s impeachment, strong opposition has been building up within South Korea against US military presence in the region. Meanwhile Beijing has warned Washington. China’s foreign minister, Wang Yi, intimated that: “one has the feeling that a conflict could break out at any moment”. Continue reading this...

Syria: Trump May Just have Started World War III
By Peter Koenig, April 08, 2017
Syria is a mere square on this murderous chess board, as was Yugoslavia, Libya, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, and many more to come. The purpose is not ‘winning a war’ – that would be too simple. The purpose is creating and leaving behind chaos, eternal chaos. In the case of Syria a balkanization of the country, what Clinton did to Yugoslavia. The old ‘divide to conquer’ – it still works after hundreds of years. People are still blinded to these oldest and most rudimentary of war strategies. They still fall for it; don’t notice; swallow the lies. Continue reading this...
