  • The ‘Long Con‘ | Philip A. Farruggio

    Philip A. Farruggio -- World News Trust Sept. 15, 2014 How foolish Americans are, or rather, until a few years ago, we Americans. This writer himself got caught up in the greatest of all confidence games: The Two Party Monte! Using an embedded media, the "Two Party, One Party" political system (created by our Military Industrial Empire) keeps chugging along. Whether it is a Reagan or Clinton, a B...

  • 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...

  • What’s Next? | Emanuele Corso

    Emanuele Corso -- World News Trust Sept. 14, 2014 What was once American democracy is disappearing. It is being replaced by Authoritarian-Capitalism, a cross between an economic belief system and a trope version of Christianity that is hatching like those creatures emerging out of an astronaut’s body in the film Alien. Recently, in a secret meeting with his billionaire sponsors, a Congressman, Mi...

    Photo credit: Mickey Z. Mickey Z. -- World News Trust Sept. 12, 2014 “As force is always on side of the governed, the governors have nothing to support them but opinion.” - David Hume If a given market has the capability to supply a never-ending array of products, ideologies, concepts, and goods, how do we ultimately make our choices? What persuades pliable, willing consumers to select Coke or Pe...

  • 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 Lies of Empire | Philip A. Farruggio

    Philip A. Farruggio -- World News Trust Sept. 1, 2014 Now, going by the title of this column, one could literally write a digest on the lies our nation’s leaders have fed us throughout the years. This writer chooses to focus on a few of the "sins of empire" that have really ruined our nation’s economy, international prestige and yes, even our security. With but another anniversary of the events o...

  • 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.

  • The Other 9/11 | Mickey Z.

    Photo credit: Mickey Z. Mickey Z. -- World News Trust Sept. 4, 2014 “I don't see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist because of the irresponsibility of its own people.” - Henry Kissinger Ten days after the Salvador Allende government was overthrown in a Sept. 11, 1973, coup in Chile, U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Jack Kubisch told the House Subcommittee on Inter-Am...
