Brothers-in-Arms: Capitalism and Corporate Journalism

16-06-2010 17:52


An essential role of corporate journalism is to shore up public confidence in an unjust, crisis-riven financial and economic system. Although plenty of gloom and doom is permitted, especially in the face of obvious crisis, the legitimacy of the system is rarely questioned.

The Futility of UN Security Council Resolutions

14-06-2010 11:27

Israeli ambassador gestures during the UN Human Rights Council session, 24/03/10
Although the United Nations Security Council, which some politicians believe is one of the most undemocratic organizations in the world, voted in favor of a fourth round of sanctions against Iran over its uranium enrichment program, global public opinion is well aware of the fact that 15 countries, 5 of which are entitled to remain in an unquestionable monopoly and dominance, cannot in reality represent the interests of the international community.

How the CIA Steals Money From Taxpayers

14-06-2010 08:23

In 1989 Catherine Austin Fitts became Assistant Secretary for Housing in Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). She began to notice money was not properly tracked as it moved between different HUD departments and there was a lack of proper accounting mechanisms to deal with discrepancies in revenue indicated fraud at an alarming level. [28] She attempted to put in place some credible financial tracking mechanisms to identify where the money was going and to identify the responsible individuals and HUD departments, but after 18 months on the job she was suddenly fired by the Bush administration. Fitts was told the day after she left that her financial reforms through ‘place-based financial accounting and statements’ would also be terminated. [29]

Militant workers in the Philippines slam wage hike as loose change

13-06-2010 10:15

The militant Partido ng Manggagawa (Workers Party - PM) slammed the wage hike of P22 for Metro Manila workers as “loose change” and called for the abolition of the regional wage boards for “betraying the working class.” Renato Magtubo, PM chairperson, declared that “P22 is not even enough for workers to buy a kilo of commercial rice or even the cheapest NFA rice worth P25. Since the last wage hike was in June 2008, the wage hike is effectively P11 per year over two years. Na-onse na naman ang mga manggagawa."

UN "green light" for a pre-emptive US-Israel attack on Iran?

13-06-2010 10:07

Sunday Times, 13 July 2008
The UN Security Council resolution grants a de facto "green light"; to wage a pre-emptive war against Iran, which has been on the Pentagon's drawing board since 2004. It prevents Russia and China to sell both strategic and conventional weapons and military technology to their de facto ally: Iran. At the same time, by barring Iran from purchasing conventional military equipment, the resolution prevents Iran from defending itself from a US-NATO-Israel attack.

The absurdities in the campaign for president of Brazil

13-06-2010 00:44

We see with deep regret the rating of terrorist circulates abundantly by the Brazilian Internet, targeting the 44 million voters-users of the network. The term, associated with economist Dilma Vana Rousseff is, at worst, a historical injustice.

Obama's charade on Iran sanctions

10-06-2010 19:46

The Obama Administration has already “checked the box” to show that engaging Iran doesn’t work. Now it has started the process of “checking the box” to show that the “broadest and toughest” sanctions ever imposed on the Islamic Republic don’t work. And that will leave the Obama Administration with no other options except formal adoption of regime change as the explicit goal of its Iran policy—and/or military strikes against the Islamic Republic.

09-06-2010 22:33

Today, the UNSC is scheduled to vote on Iran sanctions and they will probably pass. There is a lot of debate on the importance of sanctions and what it all means etc. But instead of concentrating so much on the latest news, we have to step back and observe the overall-pattern which is emerging to see what's really going on.

Israel Is Fueling Anti-Americanism among U.S. Allies

09-06-2010 05:16

Biden is the least qualified to allay Arab anger for being the most vocal among U.S. officials in “legitimizing” Israel’s blunder. The Gaza flotilla episode has dispelled the benefit of doubt the Arab allies have given to President Barak Obama’s promises of change in U.S. foreign policy in their region.

What do we need to learn from capitalists?

08-06-2010 14:54

Activist authors such as Derrick Jensen remind us that by any objective measure, the environmental movement has been a failure. The past forty years have seen an increasing rate of destruction of the living planet despite increasing awareness of the problems has grown. We may have been trying hard, but we have been losing harder. Perhaps it's time to ask how our opponents learned to be so successful?

The IMF and Afrika - the Double standars and hypocrisy

07-06-2010 14:35

The IMF claims that it has sent Afrika trillions of dollars in so-called aid only for the bulk of it to be squandered by so-called greedy Afrikan leaders. What this article seeks to do is to expose the double standard at play here and impart to White people and others whose media brainwashes them that far from so-called corrupt Afrikan leaders wasting the money in Swiss Bank accounts, the real corruption lies with the West and its corrupt institutions like the IMF.

The International Atomic Energy Agency: From UN nuclear watchdog to US lapdog

07-06-2010 07:35

As the United Nations’ nuclear inspections body, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), meets in Vienna later this week to discuss its latest report on Iran, there are signs that Washington is now writing the IAEA’s script.

The most glaring indication of the IAEA’s appeasement of US belligerence over the latter’s allegations of Iranian nuclear ambitions, and therefore the need for further punitive UN sanctions, is the gaping omission from the agency’s report of the Tehran nuclear fuel swap declaration.
