Trump-and-Putin1U.S. Foreign Policy and the Campaign to Destabilize the Trump Presidency

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky, January 04 2017

The unspoken truth pertaining to Obama’s Executive Order is that the punishment was intended for Trump rather than Putin. The objective is not to “Box-In” the president-elect for his “unfamiliarity with the role of intelligence”. The strategy is to delegitimize Donald Trump by accusing him of high treason.

“Repeater Journalism” versus the Biggest Underreported Stories of 2016

By Eresh Omar Jamal, January 04 2017

You have the majority of mainstream journalists worldwide simply ‘repeating the narrative’ portrayed in the powerful quarters of the world media, namely the Western (American) media, and the information they receive from the biggest news agencies (Western mostly), instead of doing their job — ‘questioning what happened’ and ‘investigating how’ it did. When such impervious power rests in the hands of a handful of individuals, you will of course have a select number of stories being regularly reported by the media. And some stories, never. So what were some of those stories worthy of being covered in the news that were not?

SyriaRussiaFlagOn Syria’s Continued Resistance, Russia and the Threat to Western Power

By Ghada Chehade, January 03 2017

As a new year begins I wish to reflect on the Syrian government’s continued resistance and impending victory—with the help of the Russian military—against western backed terrorist forces. The defense of Syria, after an almost six-year-long proxy offensive against it, has served a blow to the western imperial agenda while greatly strengthening Russia’s position globally.

Kinda Kute By S. Artesian

2 January 2017 — The Wolf Report:Nonconfidential analysis for the anti-investor

Ya make a guy feel humble
I make a fool of myself again
Ya make me trip and stumble
Just go dance by yourself again….

And you’re kinda kute baby, kinda kute baby
See you dance in your satin suit baby
When you move gotta sit right down
No competition with
This kinda kutie around — Joe Jackson, “Kinda Kute” 1979, from the album I’m the Man

Kinda Kute, isn’t it, watching the president of the United States whimper and moan about Russian “intervention” in the 2016 election?  Kinda precious, isn’t it, watching the titular head of a government that has intervened before, during, and after elections, and with lawyers, guns, money, and drugs, in countries around the world and across decades,  whine about the treacherous, nefarious, outrageous actions of the Putin government which violated the gentleman’s code of coup plotting….by hacking and releasing emails?

Obama’s Sanctions against Moscow “Intended to Box In Donald Trump”. Evidence that Hacking of DNC Accusations are Fake

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky, December 30 2016

The sanctions on Russia constitute “an assertive act by President Obama to punish Russia before he leaves office.” The unspoken truth, however, is that the punishment was intended for Trump, to undermine his foreign policy stance in relation to Moscow.

Grand Theft Electoral: Aborted Recount Effort Shows US Elections Are Broken, Recount-Proof and Audit-Proof

by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

Before judges and state officials aborted it, the attempted recount initiated by Green Party candidate Jill Stein revealed and confirmed specific patterns of widespread interstate electoral tampering in the presidential election just past that zero in on black and brown communities. The craven need of Hillary and the Dems to blame the Russians for their loss proves that they own the current broken and rigged US electoral system just as much Republicans. Continue reading this...

Snoopers Charter is Breaking the Law

21 December 2016 — Liberty

The Government IS breaking the law by indiscriminately collecting the nation’s internet activity and phone records – meaning significant parts of its new Snoopers’ Charter are effectively unlawful.

When Liberty, representing Tom Watson MP, launched a legal challenge two years ago, it was because we believed the Government’s surveillance practices were breaching our human rights.

Today, the EU Court of Justice (CJEU) agreed with us: the Government is breaking the law. Continue reading this...

Ringing out the neo, Ringing in the neo By S. Artesian

20 December 2016 — The Wolf Report: Nonconfidential analysis for the anti-investor

1. It has been going on a long time, hasn’t it? The bourgeoisie have been on an offensive; the offensive was triggered by a decline in the rate of profitability; the offensive has not been able to systematically overcome the decline in the rate of profit; the offensive was kick-started with the overthrow of Allende in Chile, and the OPEC price spike of 1973. Both represent the attack on labor, on the class of laborers; on the living and the living standards of the workers; one using the hammer of military force, the other using the anvil of market force.  Behind every free market, there stands a death squad. Said that 43 years ago; said it yesterday. Will say it tomorrow.  Maybe from a secure, undisclosed location.
