Lies America’s News-Media Tell
by Eric Zuesse
Posted March 27, 2019
Here are America’s recent targets for regime-change (against which have been used economic sanctions, invasion, and enormous destruction) — and all of them are nations that never invaded nor threatened to invade America:
Iraq 2003, Libya 2011, Syria 2011-2018, Yemen 2015-now, Ukraine 2014, and Venezuela 2017-now.
Because all of these were and are aggressive wars by the US against nations that never invaded nor threatened to invade the US, they all ought to be subject to mega-criminal prosecutions as was done by the US, Britain, and USSR, against Germany at the Nuremberg Tribunals after World War II. That was merely victors’ ‘justice’, applied by the US, Britain and USSR, but this would instead be actual international justice, the first instance of such in all of world history. It’s desperately needed — especially now. More…
The Facts: The US has meddled in foreign elections, overthrown elected leaders, assassinated leaders, imposed harsh sanctions, and militarily invaded many countries.
Reflect On: How would the world be better place if the leaders of aggressive nations were forced to stand trial in an international court?
It’s official: Russiagate is this generation’s WMD
by Matt Taibbi
Posted March 27, 2019
The Iraq war faceplant damaged the reputation of the press. Russiagate just destroyed it.
Nobody wants to hear this, but news that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is headed home without issuing new charges is a death-blow for the reputation of the American news media.
As a purely journalistic failure, however, WMD was a pimple compared to Russiagate. The sheer scale of the errors and exaggerations this time around dwarfs the last mess. Worse, it’s led to most journalists accepting a radical change in mission. We’ve become sides-choosers, obliterating the concept of the press as an independent institution whose primary role is sorting fact and fiction. More…
The reputation of the main stream media has been even further damaged by the fact that the Mueller report has no indictments. It proves that their Russiagate stories were not properly vetted.
How were people being manipulated by the media both on weapons of mass destruction and now on Russiagate? Perhaps it is time to read, but not accept everything just because it is in writing?
5G “May Be A Global Health Catastrophe” – Journalist Educates Orlando City Council
By Arjun Walia
Posted March 26, 2019
Well, the health consequences of 5G are very real and very well-documented by hundreds of scientists and health professionals, as proven by thousands of peer-reviewed scientific studies published in various journals.
Martin L. Pall, PhD and Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University, recently outlined in a new report the many health risks associated with 5G technology and wireless radiation in general. You can access that report and read more about it here. By clicking the link, you can also watch his presentation during the “Health in Buildings Roundtable,” sponsored by the NIH and co-organized by the US CDC and several other organizations, where he concluded that the “5G rollout is absolutely insane.” More…
The Facts: Justin Harvey, an activist based out of Orlando, Florida, recently shared the concerns many people around the world have with the implementation of 5G technology with Orlando City Council members.
Reflect On: There are thousands of peer-reviewed studies and hundreds of scientists showing that this is truly a dangerous step for human health. Why do these technologies continue to be approved without any safety testing at all when it’s clearly warranted?
Cities Should Stop Offering Tax Incentives to Companies Like Amazon
by Amihai Glazer
Posted March 25, 2019
New York City should count its blessings.
Amazon’s decision to walk away from its plan to build a new headquarters in Queens stunned city and state officials, who had promised US$3 billion in incentives in exchange for some 25,000 jobs. They had never questioned whether the promised jobs and economic stimulus would actually appear.
In my own research as an economist studying corporate welfare, I have found and reviewed much evidence on the effectiveness of tax and other incentives. My conclusion: Incentives just don’t work.
That’s in part because companies aren’t obligated to follow through on their promises. Just ask Boston. More…
Huge Defeat for Imperialists: The U.S. Broke Its Teeth in Venezuela
By Alison Bodine
Posted March 25, 2019
The miserably failed “humanitarian aid” delivery into Venezuela on February 23 is another nail in the coffin of the U.S. government’s coup attempt against President Nicolas Maduro and the Bolivarian revolutionary process in Venezuela.
Before this day, the U.S. government and their allies, including Canada, thought that their puppet, self-declared “interim President” Juan Guaidó, still had a chance. The U.S. government made a callous bet that the installation of Guaidó, together with a cruel and illegal sanctions campaign against Venezuela would be enough to force the people of Venezuela to overthrow the democratically elected government of President Nicolas Maduro. However, they were badly wrong. More…
How to De-clutter Your Thoughts and Emotions
By Hilde Larsen
Posted March 24, 2019
Everything starts with a thought, so let’s start by making space for some new ones. The mind is the root of all clutter. It has helped you create everything you see and live, the good the bad and the ugly. Now let’s put it to work, to de-clutter your whole life, step-by-step, freeing you from unwanted and unneeded life-sucking energy and burdens.
First and foremost, you need to monitor your thoughts. What are you thinking? Look around. Your reality is a reflection of your inner terrain, both mentally and emotionally. Be mindful of your thoughts. Be observant of how you respond to situations and your own beliefs. You can only hold one thought at the time, so remember that a negative, or un-serving thought is occupying the space of a serving one. More…
Patent Trolls Aren’t Just “Monster Stories”
By Joe Mullin
Posted March 23, 2019
Patent trolls aren’t a myth. They aren’t a bedtime story. Ask a software developer—they’re likely to know someone who has been sued or otherwise threatened by one, if they haven’t been themselves.
Patent trolls aren’t a thing that happens once in a while or an exception to the rule. Over the past two decades, troll litigation has become the rule. There are different ways to measure exactly what a “troll” is, but by one recent measurement, a staggering 85 percent of recently filed patent lawsuits in the tech sector were filed by trolls.
That’s almost 9 out of 10 lawsuits being filed by an entity with no real product or service. Because the Patent Office issues so many low-quality software patents, the vast majority of these suits are brought by entities that played no role in the development of the real-world technology they attack. Instead, trolls use vague and overbroad patents to sue the innovators who create products and services. This is how we end up with patent trolls suing people for running an online contest or making a podcast. More…
