Bolsonaro's 'Disastrous' Policies on Amazon Led to Fires
Posted: Sunday, August 25, 2019

Bolsonaro's 'Disastrous' Policies on Amazon Led to Fires, Say Observers
"We must stand together behind the Indigenous communities and leaders across the Amazon region—from Brazil to Ecuador and beyond. For them the Amazon is more than the lungs of the world, it is their home."

SUDDENLY THE WEST IS FAILING TO OVERTHROW "REGIMES"
It used to be done regularly and it worked: The West identified a country as its enemy, unleashed its professional propaganda against it, then administered a series of sanctions, starving and murdering children, the elderly and other vulnerable groups. If the country did not collapse within months or just couple of years, the bombing would begin. And the nation, totally shaken, in pain, and in disarray, would collapse like a house of cards, once the first NATO boots hit its ground.

West’s news dominated by Hong Kong while Yellow Vests largely ignored – Pilger
Western mainstream media now operate in an extremely narrow spectrum of authorized opinions and views; we just have to look at how differently protests in Hong Kong and France are covered, veteran journalist John Pilger has said.

Lula: The US is Behind "Operation Car Wash"
Posted: Monday, August 19, 2019

Lula: The US is Behind "Operation Car Wash"
For former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, events in Brazil since the 2016 coup that deposed President Dilma Rousseff were orchestrated by the US government. "Everything that is happening has the hand of the United States on it... The US created the Lava Jato investigation to take our oil," he said, speaking for the first time after Supreme Court (STF) prevented his transfer to a São Paulo prison. Lula's interview, with veteran journalist Bob Fernandes, aired on TVE, a public television station from Bahia, on Friday, August 16th.

Russia Signs Deal to Send Navy to Venezuela After 'Unacceptable' U.S. Moves

U.S. Sanctions Backfire, Lead To Boost In Russian Oil Exports

Targeting Iran
Posted: Monday, May 20, 2019

Targeting Iran
A dangerous flashpoint has emerged in world politics at the moment. There is widespread fear that the United States and its allies might launch a military operation against Iran at any time. A US aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers are already deployed in the region. The alleged sabotage of four oil tankers, two of them Saudi, and the attack on a major oil pipeline are being linked in certain circles without an iota of evidence to Tehran. There is no need to repeat that scenarios of this sort are often manufactured to justify military aggression.

Palestine FM: US Peace Deal Favors Israel's Colonial Policies
Palestine foreign minister Riyad al-Maliki slammed the so-called U.S. 'deal of the century' Friday, stating that it is “the consecration of our century-old ordeal: no independence, no sovereignty, no freedom, no justice,” during an address in London.

Amid Murky Intel, Experts Say Time to Be Clear: Threat of War With Iran "Solely and Unequivocally" Trump's Fault
As "murky" intelligence reports swirl and the White House works overtime to establish its narrative with evidence-free warnings of a supposedly growing Iranian threat, foreign policy experts and analysts are attempting to set the record straight by establishing precisely who is responsible for the dangerously high tensions in the Middle East that could spark a catastrophic war.

The World's Dictatress
In his Fourth of July address to Congress in 1821, U.S. Secretary of State John Quincy Adams stated that if America were ever to abandon its founding foreign policy of non-interventionism, she would inevitably become the world's "dictatress" and begin behaving accordingly. No can can deny that Adams' prediction has come true. America has truly become the world's dictatress – an arrogant, ruthless, brutal dictatress that brooks no dissent from anyone in the world.

NATO ally Spain pulls warship from US strike group 'to avoid being dragged into conflict with Iran'
Spain has withdrawn a frigate which was part of a US combat group traveling to the Persian Gulf to 'send a message' to Iran. Madrid has signaled that the operation falls outside of its military commitments as a NATO member.

The Lies That Form Our Consciousness and False Historical Awareness
My generation associated dystopias, such as George Orwell's 1984, with the Soviet Union, a country in which explanations were controlled and criticism of Stalin would land a person in the Gulag. We thought of the United States and our life here much differently. But with the passage of time the difference between life in the Soviet Union in the 20th century and life in the Western world today is disappearing. Today, the journalist Julian Assange is undergoing the same kind of state terror and torture as any Soviet dissident, if not worse. The Western media is as controlled as the Soviet media, with print, TV, and public radio serving as a propaganda ministry for government and the interest groups that control government. Social media, such as Facebook and Twitter are systematically denying their platforms to those who express views not supportive of the ruling order and its agendas. It has turned out to be easy to get rid of the First Amendment guarantee of free speech as the media have neither the ability nor the intention of exercising it.

Bomb Iran Half Way Back to the Stone Age
Is it just a coincidence that TV networks are re-running old "Dirty Harry" films just as a powerful US Naval armada and Air Force B-52 bombers are headed for what could be a clash with Iran? Here we go again with the "good guys" versus the "bad guys," and "make my day."

'Pity America, because of this crazy Trump!' Here's what Iran's man in Iraq would say to Mike Pompeo
Mike Pompeo went to put the thumbscrews on the Iraqi government this week. No more electrical power from Iran, he told them, and make sure those pesky Iranians don't attack our boys in that great American base in Iraq which Trump was boasting about. The New York Times numbingly told us that his trip was "shrouded in secrecy" – if only it had been. Then at least the US secretary of state could have paid a visit to Iran's most important supporter in the Iraqi parliament.

The Sandinista government is concerned that the country's opposition are not engaging with peace negotiations in good faith, due to the fact they refuse to condemn U.S. sanctions on the country.

Pandering to Israel Means War With Iran
The United States is moving dangerously forward in what appears to be a deliberate attempt to provoke a war with Iran, apparently based on threat intelligence provided by Israel. The claims made by National Security Advisor John Bolton and by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that there is solid evidence of Iran's intention to attack US forces in the Persian Gulf region is almost certainly a fabrication, possibly deliberately contrived by Bolton and company in collaboration with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
