Google’s Spymasters Are Now Worried About Your Secrets By Robert Scheer

29 April 2013 — Truthdig

A recent article in The Wall Street Journal by Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt, “The Dark Side of the Digital Revolution,” makes for very scary reading. It is not so much because of what he and co-author Jared Cohen, the director of Google Ideas, have to say about how dictators can use new information technology to suppress dissent; we know those guys are evil.

How George Bush won the war in Iraq – really! By Greg Palast

29 March 2013 – Vice Magazine

If you thought it was “Blood for Oil”–you’re wrong.  It was far, far worse.

Because it was marked “confidential” on each page, the oil industry stooge couldn’t believe the US State Department had given me a complete copy of their secret plans for the oil fields of Iraq. Actually, the State Department had done no such thing. But my line of bullshit had been so well-practiced and the set-up on my mark had so thoroughly established my fake identity, that I almost began to believe my own lies. Continue reading this...

Real liars go to Tehran By Pepe Escobar

21 March 2013 — Asia Times

Uncle Marx never thought about this one: history repeating itself as double tragedy after already being a farce in the first place. Let’s examine the case in hand. First of all, take a close look at this Wall Street Journal op-ed from September 2002, in the hysterical run-up towards the invasion of Iraq

Hugo Chavez vs “The Network” By Greg Palast

14 March, 2013 — Vice Magazine

President Who? All I knew about this Hugo Chavez guy was that he was an Latin-American jefe, led a bungled coup and was filled with a lot of populist bullshit and a lot of oil.

The Wolf Report: If it is what it is By S. Artesian

10 February 2013 — The Wolf Report

 

Dann wird es, was es muss

 

1. When the bourgeoisie aren’t, and even when they are, flogging the virtues of responsibility, accountability, attention-to-detail, hands-on-management, they’re usually in court pleading out the latest bit of irregularities, high and petty crimes, misdemeanors, and assorted felonies, with claims of amnesia (“I have no recollection…”), or dementia (“I’ m not capable of recognizing my own handwriting”). Or, they’re busy blaming irresponsible, unaccountable, subordinate rogues for violating “corporate ethics” (sic); abusing the “trust;” going “too far” thereby turning the corporate good ship Lollipop into Blackbeard’s Queen Anne’s Revenge.

The Syria Endgame: Strategic Stage in the Pentagon’s Covert War on Iran By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya

7 January, 2013 – Global Research

Since the kindling of the conflict inside Syria in 2011, it was recognized, by friend and foe alike, that the events in that country were tied to a game plan that ultimately targets Iran, Syria’s number one ally. [1] De-linking Syria from Iran and unhinging the Resistance Bloc that Damascus and Tehran have formed has been one of the objectives of the foreign-supported anti-government militias inside Syria. Such a schism between Damascus and Tehran would change the Middle East’s strategic balance in favour of the US and Israel.
