Because nothing says peace like a missile cruiser

US missile cruiser enters Black Sea again ‘to promote peace’

Can You Handle Truth re US-Led Collapse of World Security?

What follows are five fact-filled and revelatory perspectives I have distilled from Professor John McMurtry’s compelling “‘Global Society Destruction’ and The Ukraine Crisis: Decoding its Deep Structural Meaning”. McMurtry cuts through the mainstream media anti-Russian and anti-Ukraine resistance propaganda to expose what he considers a US-led money/military cancer system attacking ALL of global civilization.

Ian Morris of Stanford has a theory about war

In the long run, wars make us safer and richer

Cleary our elite has really lost the plot. That something like this would find its way into print on the pages of the once proud Washington Post tells us that our elite have gone round the bend. Read below the fold...

CIO report on privatization disasters shows that one of its main goals is looting.

In my blog post a few days ago about the unseen hand of the various 'free trade agreement' mandates to 'privatize everything' quietly strangling any "hope" of real "health care reform" in the USA, I had a lot to say about the 'FTA's' mandated forced irreversible privatizations of everything people need from and see as good about government, in secret, and the forces I see as driving it.

Still Not Over: CPC Update

The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) recently issued its “Better Off Budget” document as an alternative to the White House/OMB document, and the coming House budget document, a Republican/conservative alternative. The “Better Off Budget” has received enthusiastic evaluations from writers affiliated with the DC progressive community. Richard Eskow's recent treatment is typical and provides other reviews that are laudatory. These “progressives” clearly see the CPC budget as anything but an austerity budget. But is it, or is it not? Read below the fold...
