The full article: Washington’s False Flag: United Nations Confirmed that US Supported Syrian “Rebels” Were Using Chemical Weapons By Prof Michel Chossudovsky

Head of UN Mission Carla del Ponte

Washington is Lying.

The Media is Lying.

Both Trump and Obama have blood on their hands. The Chemical Weapons Attack is being used as a “False Flag”, a pretext and a justification to wage an illegal war of aggression. 

The United Nations in a 2013 report confirms that Syrian opposition “rebels” (supported by Washington) “may have used chemical weapons against [Syrian] government forces.”

The UN report refutes Washington’s allegations that the government of Bashar al Assad was using chemical weapons against his own people. Continue reading this...

When America’s “Progressives” Pay Lip Service to Imperialism. The Anti-War Movement is Dead

By , April 09, 2017

Both Al Qaeda and the Islamic State (ISIS) are creations of US intelligence. War has become peace. Realities have been turned upside down. Trump’s illegal punitive airstrikes against Syria are heralded as a humanitarian act against Bashar Al Assad who is “killing his own people”. Continue reading this...

Donald TrumpTrump’s One Trillion Dollar Infrastructure Boondoggle. Handing Over Public Assets to Private Corporations

By Mike WhitneyMarch 16 2017

Donald Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure plan is not an infrastructure plan and it won’t put $1 trillion of fiscal stimulus into the economy. It’s basically a scheme for handing over public assets to private corporations that will extract maximum profits via user fees and tolls. Because the plan is essentially a boondoggle, it will not lift the economy out of the doldrums, increase activity or boost growth.  Quite the contrary.

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky, March 13 2017

Trump believes that Kim Jong-un is crazy. Take him out. The U.S. media concurs: the DPRK is a threat to US national security requiring a preemptive first strike THAAD missile attack in the name of “self defense”. Who’s crazy? Kim or Trump? Never mind if it unleashes war with China and Russia.

NYT: Unlike Russian Wars, US Wars ‘Promote Freedom and Democracy’

10 February 2017 — FAIR

NYT: Blaming America FirstThe New York Times defends its country’s innocence.

The New York Times, in its recent rebuff of comments President Donald Trump made about Russia, seems not to have evolved its understanding of US geopolitics past an 8th grade level. Trump had been asked by Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly (2/5/17) why he wouldn’t condemn Vladimir Putin, whom O’Reilly called a “killer.”

“You got a lot of killers,” Trump told O’Reilly. “What, you think our country’s so innocent?”

The fallacy, and the failure of reformism By William Bowles

27 June 2016

So I turn on the TV and up comes a BBC reporter, and the first words I hear are, “but the word that comes to mind regarding Mr Corbyn’s performance on campaigning to remain in the EU, is lacklustre…that’s what everybody is saying”. The reporter went on to blame Corbyn for the result because he didn’t campaign hard enough to Remain.
