  • The Crocodiles of Reality | John Michael Greer

    March 12, 2014 ( Archdruid Report ) -- I've suggested in several previous posts that the peak oil debate may be approaching a turning point -- one of those shifts in the collective conversation in which topics that have been shut out for years or decades finally succeed in crashing the party, and other topics that have gotten more than their quota of attention during that time get put out to past...

  • Al-Aqsa vs. Israel: The Lurking Danger Beneath | Ramzy Baroud

    Ramzy Baroud -- World News Trust March 12, 2014 Something sinister is brewing around and below al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem, and it has the hallmark of a familiar Israeli campaign to strip the Mosque of its Muslim Arab identity. This time around, however, the stakes are much higher. The status of al-Aqsa mosque is unparalleled within the context of Muslim heritage in Palestine itself...

  • The BBC: Washington’s Mouthpiece | Paul Craig Roberts

    March 16, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts.org) -- Once upon a time the BBC was a news organization, but that was before the organization sold out to Washington. Today the BBC is a liar for Washington. Indeed, the BBC is a despicable organization that believes that “exceptional, indispensable” Washington has the right to determine the fate of all peoples. The proof is everywhere. Just look here: http://www...

  • 95.7 Percent Of Crimeans Give The Finger To The White House Tyrant | Paul Craig Roberts

    March 16, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts.org) -- In an unprecedented turnout unmatched by any Western election, Crimeans voted 95.7 percent to join Russia. As I pointed out earlier today, under the twisted logic of Washington Crimea has never been a part of Ukraine as Russians were not allowed to vote when the Soviet dictator Khrushchev stuck the Russian province of Crimea into Ukraine in 1954. While Cri...

  • Obama Declares Self-Determination To Be A Threat To US National Security | Paul Craig Roberts

    March 16, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts.org) -- In his March 6 Executive Order, “Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine,” Obama declares that support for Crimean self-determination constitutes “an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.” ht...

  • Washington Has Set The World On A Path To War | Paul Craig Roberts

    March 16, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts.org) -- Why is Washington so opposed to Crimean self-determination? The answer is that one of the main purposes of Washington’s coup in Kiev was to have the new puppet government evict Russia from its Black Sea naval base in Crimea. Washington cannot use the government Washington has installed in Ukraine for that purpose if Crimea is no longer part of Ukraine. Wha...

  • Deep State Descending | James Howard Kunstler

    James Howard Kunstler -- World News Trust March 10, 2014 And so it’s back to the Kardashians for the US of ADD. As of Sunday The New York Times kicked Ukraine off its front page, a sure sign that the establishment (let’s revive that useful word) is sensitive to the growing ridicule over its claims of national interest in that floundering, bedraggled crypto-nation. The Kardashians sound enough lik...

  • Our Way of Life/Death | Mickey Z.

    Photo credit: Mickey Z. Mickey Z. -- World News Trust March 15, 2014 When Barack Obama was first inaugurated in January 2009, he clearly and firmly announced to the planet: “We will not apologize for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defense.” I’d say this is one promise the Pope of Hope has kept. Wake-up Call: Our way of life is a way of death. “Our way of life” is based on violence, exp...

  • World War I All Over Again | Paul Craig Roberts

    The same fools play the same game March 14, 2014 -- PaulCraigRoberts.org “If you reduce the lie to a scientific system put it on thick and heavy, and with great effort and sufficient finances scatter it all over the world as the pure truth, you can deceive whole nations for a long time and drive them to slaughter for causes in which they have not the slightest interest.” -- Chief French Editor, B...

  • Venezuela Also Is Being Overthrown By The Criminal Regime In Washington | Paul Craig Roberts

    March 14, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts.org) -- Dear Readers, now that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has issued an ultimatum to Russia, telling Putin that he has until Monday to follow Washington’s orders or else, hopefully everyone can see the repeat of the March of Folly that produced World War i. In my last column, “ Merkel Whores For Washington ,” I mistakenly attributed to Khrushchev all trans...

  • True Confessions from the Rich Man’s Club | Philip A. Farruggio

    Philip A. Farruggio -- World News Trust March 8, 2014 Once again, our proverbial "fly on the wall" comes in handy at the super exclusive Rich Man’s Club . Let’s listen in as two of the super rich elites sit and chat around the fireplace: Rich man # 1 -- Seems to me that things have been going well for our class, what with our choice of presidents these past 5+ years. Rich man # 2 -- Could not agr...
