  • Losing the Plot: Israel's Premier to Face New Gaza Reality | Ramzy Baroud

    Ramzy Baroud -- World News Trust Sept. 10, 2014 Netanyahu’s war-turned-genocide in Gaza has backfired badly -- his strategy has helped resurrect Hamas, the very movement he tried desperately to crush Aside from being a major military setback, Israel’s war on Gaza has also disoriented the policies of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu like never before. Since the announcement of a ceasefire on Aug....

  • Technological Superstitions | John Michael Greer

    Sept. 10, 2014 (Archdruid Report) -- I'd meant to go straight on from last week’s post about völkerwanderung and the dissolution and birth of ethnic identities in dark age societies, and start talking about the mechanisms by which societies destroy themselves -- with an eye, of course, to the present example. Still, as I’ve noted here more than once, there are certain complexities involved in the...

  • 9/11 After 13 years | Paul Craig Roberts

    Sept. 10, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts.org) -- The tragedy of September 11, 2001, goes far beyond the deaths of those who died in the towers and the deaths of firefighters and first responders who succumbed to illnesses caused by inhalation of toxic dust. For 13 years a new generation of Americans has been born into the 9/11 myth that has been used to create the American warfare/police state. The corru...

  • The Ukraine Crisis Remains Unresolved | Paul Craig Roberts

    Sept. 9, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts.org) -- Some Western commentators interpret the cease fire in Ukraine obtained by President Putin as a victory for Russia. The reasoning is that the cease fire leaves Ukraine with disputed borders, which rules out Ukraine’s membership in NATO. But will the cease fire hold? The right-wing Kiev militias, whose members often wear nazi insignias, are not under Kiev’s c...

  • No Economy For Americans | Paul Craig Roberts

    Sept. 8, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts.org) -- The Dow Jones stock average closed Friday at 17,137, despite the fact that the payroll jobs report was a measly 125,000 new jobs for August, an insufficient amount to keep up with the growth in the working age population. The low 125,000 jobs figure is also inconsistent with the Bureau of Economic Analysis’ second estimate of second quarter 2014 U.S. GDP gr...

  • The West Paves The Road To War With Lies | Paul Craig Roberts

    Sept. 5, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts.org) -- Official statements from the Russian government indicate that the president and foreign minister continue to rely on the good will of “our Western partners” to work out a reasonable diplomatic solution to the trouble in Ukraine caused by Washington. Not only is there no evidence of this good will in Western capitals, the hostile measures against Russia are ...

  • A Lie that serves the rich | Roberts, Titus, Kranzler

    the truth about the American economy Paul Craig Roberts, John Titus, and Dave Kranzler Sept. 4, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts.org) -- The labor force participation rate has declined from 66.5 percent in 2007 prior to the last downturn to 62.7 percent today. This decline in the participation rate is difficult to reconcile with the alleged economic recovery that began in June 2009 and supposedly continues...

  • Dark Age America: The Cauldron of Nations | John Michael Greer

    Sept. 3, 2014 (Archdruid Report) -- It's one thing to suggest, as I did in last week’s post here, that North America a few centuries from now might have something like 5 percent of its current population. It’s quite another thing to talk about exactly whose descendants will comprise that 5 percent. That’s what I intend to do this week, and yes, I know that raising that issue is normally a very go...

  • Winners and Losers in Gaza: On Victory and False Victory | Ramzy Baroud

    Ramzy Baroud -- World News Trust Sept. 3, 2014 In the rush to analyze the outcome of Israel’s 51-day war in Gaza, dubbed Operation Protective Edge, some may have neglected an important factor: this was not a war by traditional definitions of warfare, thus the conventional analyses of victory and defeat is simply not applicable. That being the case, how can we explain Israeli Prime Minister Benjam...

  • Warning to the World: Washington and its NATO & EU Vassals are Insane | Paul Craig Roberts

    Sept. 2, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts.org) -- Herbert E. Meyer, a nutcase who was a special assistant to the CIA director for a period during the Reagan administration, has penned an article calling for Russian President Putin’s assassination. If we have “ to get him out of the Kremlin feet-first with a bullet hole in the back of his head, that would be okay with us.” http://www.americanthinker.com/201...

  • The Population Implosion | John Michael Greer

    Aug. 27, 2014 (Archdruid Report) -- The three environmental shifts discussed in earlier posts in this sequence -- the ecological impacts of a sharply warmer and dryer climate, the flooding of coastal regions due to rising sea levels, and the long-term consequences of industrial America’s frankly brainless dumping of persistent radiological and chemical poisons -- all involve changes to the North ...
