Google, your data suppression methods are obvious, easily recorded, abysmally inept and generally pathetic.

The simple fact that you actively engage in suppressing this and other alternative news sites means we have won and TRUTH will prevail in the end.

text Coherence and Incoherence jake, Sunday, Dec 31 2017, 3:09am
It is easy to denounce Trump and the morons that continue to support him in view of his policies that clearly favour elite interests and create evermore hardships for the dispossessed white American working class that stupidly continue to support Trump. Though Trump is smart enough to throw off on the ‘other’ as the problem, such as illegal immigrants, Muslims, foreigners in general, racism is always a handy political card to play, as humans by nature are tribal.

text US Prepares for yet Another Illegal Proxy War in Syria Alex Gorka via gail, Saturday, Dec 30 2017, 7:31pm
After the Islamic State proxy fighting group was roundly defeated in Syria by Russia and its allies, the USA illegitimately and ILLEGALLY continues to occupy Syria and arm, train and supply the Kurdish YPG separatist group with modern weaponry to re-ignite the conflict. The US is doing all this in plain sight of other nations and so one can only wonder why the rest of the world sits back idly and allows the needless killing and destabilisation to continue. America's current subversive actions are totally illegal as is its continuing occupation of Syria, so WHY are other nations doing nothing to end the crisis, particularly Russia and China? It stinks as it’s all being done OVERTLY without the least regard for international laws and conventions.

text The Uselessness of the ‘ME’ Generations stella, Saturday, Dec 30 2017, 12:40am
It should be no surprise that spoilt rotten generations, focused primarily on themselves, cannot establish real social relationships, that is, talking and interacting with others outside familiar niches.

American consumer Christ -- Banksy image What Christmas Means Chris Hedges via jane, Monday, Dec 25 2017, 2:59am
In the early 1980s I was in a refugee camp for Guatemalans who had fled the war into Honduras. It was a cold, dreary winter afternoon. The peasant farmers and their families, living in filth and mud, were decorating their tents with strips of colored paper. That night, they said, they would celebrate the flight of Mary, Joseph and the infant Jesus to Egypt to escape the slaughter of the children of Bethlehem ordered by Herod. The celebration is known as the Day of the Holy Innocents. (story and 1 image)

text Identity -- whether it’s really as important as it Pretends sybil, Monday, Dec 25 2017, 12:22am
It ‘seems,’ a word I would be forced to use often here, that identity or a notion of a separate self is crucial not only to society but to its units, individuals, and note definitions of individual, all dictionary definitions reduce to, ‘a SINGLE separate Self as distinct from others or a group,’ indeed that should be the case, however, reality dictates it is not! And it should be noted that dictionaries avoid defining what it is that creates the difference.

text War Solves Nothing for the Masses! jaxie, Sunday, Dec 24 2017, 9:26pm
The proof of the title is that after the war to end ALL wars, WWI, we had WWII, a tragic consequence of moral bankruptcy and erroneous thinking; so let’s analyse WWII, essentially a fight against fascist/totalitarian nations wishing to dominate the entire world via violent military means, sound familiar? So who really won WWII? Shallow thinkers immediately blurt, we did, the allied democratic nations of the world! It seems so except for the fact that those nations today have overtly become fascist/totalitarian, oppressive surveillance states, particularly the USA which was once the beacon of world democracy. So who really won WWII? THE FASCISTS, THAT’S WHO -- plain to see, or would you care to name just one representative Democracy in the world TODAY?

text Have YOU Ever Wondered Why? stacey, Saturday, Dec 23 2017, 8:59pm
The most obvious change in the media today is that the horrors and consequences of needless wars are no longer reported on a daily basis as they were in the 60‘s when media ownership was diversified and less amenable to the control of nefarious elites. Rather than highlight the shocking devastation and cruel injustices of largely criminal wars of aggression, we have bogeymen and fabricated enemies confronting us all around, interesting considering that no western nation has been attacked by another state since WWII.

Zuckerberg -- Double Standards image Assessed Misinformer of the Year: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Matt Gertz via melanie, Friday, Dec 22 2017, 8:51pm
A dubious and ironical distinction indeed, especially if we consider that Facebook and Google are the primary vehicles of government CENSORSHIP, commissioned by the nefarious CIA and NSA (which agencies financed the creation of these two IT giants) to remove or background ALL opposing political views that PROVE the government fictional/propaganda narrative is rubbish.or fake at best. Facebook and Google stand out as the primary mediums working for government bodies and agencies AGAINST free speech and the best interests of the people. And so it is ironical that Facebook has been assessed as the leading purveyor of fake news and misinformation this year, via its "personalised news" medium. In fact, Facebook's "personalised newspaper" has become the leading global clearinghouse for misinformation! (story and 1 image)

text UN Defies Trump by Passing Resolution on Jerusalem Kambiz Foroohar via shirl, Friday, Dec 22 2017, 2:09am
The United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly backed a measure critical of President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel despite U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s warning that the move could put funding for their nations and the global body at risk.

Russia ramped up its calls for the U.S. military to depart from Syria on Thursday, contending it has no substantial reasons to be in the country and its presence there "must end."

text $21 trillion of unauthorized spending by US govt discovered by economics professor staff report via jane, Friday, Dec 22 2017, 1:42am
The US government may have misspent $21 trillion, a professor at Michigan State University has found. Papers supporting the study briefly went missing just as an audit was announced.

Two departments of the US federal government may have spent as much as $21 trillion on things they can’t account for between 1998 and 2015. At least that’s what Mark Skidmore, a Professor of Economics at MSU specializing in public finance, and his team have found.

text Russia and China [Forced to] Challenge Dollar Domination F. William Engdahl via shirl, Thursday, Dec 21 2017, 7:52pm
Indeed, it is no secret that US power reduces to the dollar as world's default trading currency, not its military which is supported by the dollar. It was an extremely foolish move by the US to engage in a currency war via economic sanctions on Russia, Iran and other nations to a lesser extent, as it has forced those nations to seek alternatives which are now ready to launch on international trading markets.

Sooner rather than later, the dollar will suffer and lose its privileged position as the Yuan would be convertible to GOLD, unlike the worthless paper of American dollars, which value is entirely based on subscription. This is a HUGE incentive for other nations and traders alike. We shall see what eventuates. Though financial 'wizards' (crooks) on Wall Street clearly have planned for this outcome but their control is more tenuous today than ever before, and they have only themselves to blame.
