The « American Party » within the institutions of the European Union by Manlio Dinucci

20 March 2019 — Voltaire Network

The European Parliament has just adopted a resolution which requires that the Union stop considering Russia as a strategic partner, but rather as an enemy of humanity. At the same time, the Commission sent a warning about the Chinese threat. Everything is unfolding as if the United States were manœuvering the Union into playing a part in their own supremacist strategy.

America’s Venezuela Strategy: Coup By Sheer Narrative Control by Caitlin Johnstone

20 March 2019 — Caitlin Johnson

The Trump administration is working to overthrow the government of Venezuela. They are not at this time doing this by military invasion, nor by funneling thousands of armed militants into the country, nor even solely with starvation sanctions and CIA ops. The first and foremost means of overthrowing Venezuela’s government currently being utilized by the United States government is the low-risk, low-cost plan to simply control the stories that everyone tells themselves about who is in charge in Venezuela.

Anti-Semitism and “The Israel Project” By Askiah Adam

19 March 2019 — Global Research

Israel is off-limits. The criminalisation of anti-Semitism means nothing short of this. In fact, France’s President Macron says anti-Zionism is a form of anti-Semitism and both are now legally defined as “hate crimes”. Will this be a global precursor?

For example, will countries refusing to recognise Israel, like Malaysia, be brought before the International Criminal Court (ICC)?
