  • Gaza Changed Everything | Ramzy Baroud

    Things Cannot Stay the Same after Israeli Genocide in Gaza Ramzy Baroud | World News Trust Aug. 21, 2014 After every bloody episode of violence perpetrated by Israel, media spin doctors are often deployed with one grand mission: to absolve Israel of any responsibility in their acts of carnage.

    Philip A. Farruggio -- World News Trust Aug. 16, 2014 For that minority of us who reject both this Military Industrial Empire and its Two Party "One Party" system, we are marginalized and ostracized.

  • Heading Toward The Sidewalk | John Michael Greer

    Aug. 20, 2014 ( Archduid Report ) -- Talking about historical change is one thing when the changes under discussion are at some convenient remove in the past or the future.

  • Washington Chokes Truth With Lies | Paul Craig Roberts

    Aug. 13, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts) -- Are Western propagandists fooling anyone but themselves? The latest absurdity coming out of Ukraine, the EU and Washington is that the humanitarian aid that Russia and the Red Cross are trucking into the former Russian territories that comprise eastern Ukraine is a trick, a deception, a pretext for Russia’s invasion forces. Such a preposterous lie tells us that...
