John Pilger: We Are in a WAR SITUATION with China!

22 August 2019 — RT

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to legendary journalist and film-maker John Pilger on a round-up of all the latest issues. John describes the current state of global affairs as in a state of world war, warning that the ‘coming war on China’ he warned about…has now arrived, he also discusses the Hong Kong protests and why they have grown, along with US involvement in the unrest. He discusses the collapse of the global nuclear arms control framework with the end of the INF Treaty and the beginning of a new arms race with Russia, amid a situation where he describes it as Washington’s goal to break up the Russian Federation under Putin. He also warns of the increased risk of nuclear war as nuclear superpowers such as Pakistan and India are also entering major tensions between each other. John Pilger also discusses his concern with John Bolton being at the ear of Donald Trump, how Brexit has created mass-distraction in the UK from the most pressing of issues at home (such as austerity and the NHS) and abroad. He slams sanctions on Venezuela and Iran and also updates us on the condition of Wikileaks founder and publisher Julian Assange, after he visited him recently in Belmarsh prison.

Roots of Chaos in Hong Kong were Planted in Washington By Salman Rafi Sheikh

22 August 2019 — New Eastern Outlook


A significant part of US foreign policy rests on the notion that it should promote the ‘politics of chaos’ as this chaos, as I pointed out earlier, plays a key role in maintaining US hegemony on the international stage. This ‘politics of chaos’ is thus not just a strategy against rival states and strategic competitors; it is also a display of the US deep-state’s obsession with running the world unilaterally and denying other (emerging) powers their due status and the ability to challenge the US primacy.

Right-Wing Think Tank IEA: A year of assaults on public health initiatives

IEA right wing think tank - a year of assaults on Britain's health system

By TruePublica: The Institute for Economic Affairs is renowned for being the most powerful and influential think tank in Britain. Modelled around a right-wing American opaque so-called ‘institute’ it is littered with dodgy donors and surrounded by accusations of dark money interests. Its assaults on public health initiatives, given its real motivations, should be a warning of what might come under a UK/US trade deal and we should be worried if we value Britain’s most revered public institution – the NHS under a Boris Johnson government.
