‘New demands on Iran – deliberate stumbling blocks’

All sort of things in these negotiations are going on behind the scenes, not only between the P5+1 and Iran but between the Western allies as well.

Additional demands on Iran at the nuclear talks put forward by France are basically impossible to fulfill; it’s unlikely that they were made without the full knowledge and approval of the US, says political commentator Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich.

Russia: Tit for Tat – Israel Shamir.

Summing it up, President Putin speaks softly. If he carries a big stick, he does not flash it around.

Hail, fire and brimstone, new sanctions or the US tanks on its borders, Russia takes things in stride. President Putin could adopt the motto of William of Orange: saevis tranquillus in undis, calm amidst the tempest.

Craig Murray: official line of a lone gunman in Tunisian attack is a lie.

I knew with certainty that the BBC and official line of a lone gunman being responsible for the Tunisian attacks was a lie, because one of the victims of one of the “other” gunmen was my dear niece Kirsty.

We had a terrible day of the attack, because for hours Kirsty was simply missing. I was the whole day on the phone to the FCO and Tunisian authorities, and we feared the worst. My brothers Neil (Kirsty’s dad) and Stuart managed to get out to Tunisia that very day. The only thought that we had was Kirsty’s safety. Thankfully she has been (strange to say in the circumstances) miraculously lucky in the path of the bullets. Many others were less fortunate. Radley also was less fortunate. I know how the families must feel of others, and there are some who even now are suffering the agony of no confirmation of disappeared relatives. 12 hours of that were bad enough.

Activists Plan to Burn American Flags in New York City Ahead of Fourth of July

A group calling for the immediate disarmament of the New York Police Department plans to burn American flags in a Brooklyn park on Wednesday, just days before the Fourth of July holiday.

“Disarm NYPD” announced the “Burn the American Flags” event on Facebook, inviting individuals to join the organization at Fort Greene Park to “set fire to this symbol of oppression.”

Organizers said accused Charleston shooter Dylann Roof wasn’t an “isolated actor,” but a “product of a consistent pattern of state-sponsored terrorism and radicalized dehumanization in America.” The event originally was aimed at burning the Confederate flag, but later changed to focus on the stars and stripes.

“There will be no peace until we tear down this system of oppression,” the group wrote on Facebook. “It isn’t enough to take the flag down; we must put an end to white supremacy once and for all.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are several questions which come to mind on this, and the first is: who is paying for these flags to be burned?!?

And the second question is, should these protests go national, and get horrifically violent, who benefits?!?

I really have to very soberly think that the greatest benefactor for such actions would be the Federal Government itself, because a national curfew could be imposed, followed by the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, coupled with the invocation of martial law.

And this administration would dearly love to be in a position to do this.

Why?!? Because world financial conditions will impact the American economy horrifically, with it looking like Greece, Puerto Rico, and Ukraine defaulting, all at approximately the same time.

What we saw yesterday on the stock markets may well be a harbinger of things to come.

The US government is very keen to start wars with Russia and China, to prevent the upswing of the ruble and yuan against the dollar.

With no First Amendment protection available, we cannot protest against either these wars, nor the reintroduction of the draft (and legislation for that, which will draft both our young men and women, has been sitting in the House Armed Services Committee for at least the last two years, until the "Right emotional moment" comes, where the House and senate believe that the American people will sign off on it)

Please be smart about how you protest, and do not give this Administration the reasons it wants to invoke martial law.

Yes, I know that the Supreme Court made flag burning protected free speech; but you can still be charged with a misdemeanor.

Anyone who wants to protest this weekend, please do it peacefully.

And remember; the stinky kid advocating property destruction, or the hurting of anyone of your brothers and sisters who are also protesting with you, is most likely a government operative, hoping to inflame the angers which exist into becoming full on riot conditions.

'No to Austerity': Tens of Thousands Back Syriza at Rally in Athens

Tens of thousands gathered in Athens on Monday night, adding their voices to the ranks of the Syriza government officials and international observers who are urging Greek citizens to act boldly and reject the terms of an aid deal offered by Greece's austerity-loving international creditors.

Greece’s Downfall and Redemption

What the Greek people can turn to is a realistic and altogether more democratic and humane option – of demanding their country slash its monstrous military spend.

Decades of exorbitant military spending account for Greece’s present downfall under an Olympian-sized debt. European governments and news media portray the problem of Greece’s financial woes as public spending profligacy.

Do you admire the US Declaration of Independence ideals of unalienable rights, having the intellectual integrity and moral courage to defend your country from dictatorial government, and refusing being used as work animals of a .01% self-declared “elite”?

Those of you with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, are you honorable to enact that Oath here and now?

Those of you who consider yourselves responsible and educated citizens, do you respect the sacrifices of all our families through two world wars to uphold the Emperor’s New Clothes simple treaties that make current US wars Orwellian unlawful? I mean, really: can you tell us any more important law for citizens to understand than when armed attack is and is not lawful?

KKK Leaflets Show up on LA Lawns; Another Part of the Race War Psyop?

Apparently the distribution of white supremacist propaganda also occurred in Orange County last week as well, so they’re really hitting this one up hard post-Charleston. A similar incident also took place earlier this year in Santa Ana on, of all days, Martin Luther King Jr. day.

Again, this sounds like something straight out of a COINTELPRO course on provocateuring, especially in the fact that it was splashed all over the news to add a little something to the race baiting in a post-Ferguson, post-Baltimore, post-Charleston America.

Speaking of COINTELPRO, considering there have been recent claims the FBI covered up their KKK informant’s role in Martin Luther King’s assassination, and that the agency destroyed crucial documents on purpose to stop the exposure of a high-ranking Klansman who also happened to be a Fed agent, the government might know a little thing or two about the KKK…

American warships sail up the Black sea. The EU sanctions against Russia were extended for another six months. Russian assets were seized in France and Belgium.

BALTIMORE POLICE CALLED OUT FOR MAKING UP ‘GANG VIOLENCE’ STORIES TO SCARE PUBLIC

Remember when the Baltimore Police Department was telling all of these stories about “Bloods” and “Crips” uniting to “destroy” the city and its “heroic” police force?

Now city leaders are coming forward and calling out the police for these claims. Last Thursday several leaders publicly questioned the Baltimore Police Department as to why they issued a public warning the morning of Freddie Gray’s funeral. That warning claimed that police officers were being targeted by a united Blood-Crip alliance that would not rest until every Baltimore officer was dead.

Instead of allowing the community to mourn the untimely death of Freddie Gray, the Baltimore City Police hijacked the attention and painted themselves as the victims.

Now, months later, it is coming out that the whole thing was invented. The police made it all up. They didn’t have a shred of credible evidence to support the claims they were making.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the Freddie Gray incident, the police were never the victims.

Communities now need to come together in solidarity to protect themselves and keep the peace, because it is for darned certain that the police cannot, or will not do it.

French riot police attack striking ferry seamen and migrants in Calais

Armenian protests resemble Ukrainian Maidan coup scenario - Russian MP

Upper House MP Igor Morozov has said that the current mass rallies in Armenia resemble the first phase of the latest coup in Ukraine, adding that the crisis could be being managed by the United States from their major diplomatic mission in Yerevan.

“Armenia is now close to a coup d’etat with use of firearms. This is going to happen unless President Serge Sargsyan learns some lessons from the Ukrainian Maidan and makes some conclusions,” the senator told RIA Novosti in comments over latest developments in Armenia’s capital, Yerevan.

Referendums have been used all across Europe as a way for people to directly express their will and have their voices heard, and Greece is fully in its right to conduct one PM Alexis Tsipras said during a late-night debate in parliament.

MK Ghattas to Netanyahu: Keep security forces away from flotilla

Joint Arab List MK Basel Ghattas sent a written message to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon on Sunday, warning to keep security forces away from the flotilla in which he is taking part, meant to break the Israeli naval blockade of the Gaza Strip.

"Command the security forces to allow us to enter Gaza and avoid the use of force," read the letter from Ghattas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel's government would be smart to let the flotilla through and defuse the situation. Sadly, Israel's government is not smart, they are arrogant and conceited and they will make the wrong call on this (again).

Admire US Declaration of Independence? Then LIVE those ideals; they require YOU to exist

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.” - US Declaration of Independence, 1776

Matt Damon reads five minutes of Howard Zinn on the necessity of civil disobedience in the face of obvious government crimes (Dr. Zinn, a history professor and author, was a leader in protest of US obvious unlawful war on Vietnam):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2li9E_94MA

With informed consent, the 99.99% would freely choose to live the self-evident ideals of the Declaration of Independence:

All humans are created equal under God, with unalienable rights that include our lives, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.
Government exists to secure our inalienable rights from God.

Those of us awake can easily, simply, in Emperor’s New Clothes language explain, document, and prove that Earth is dominated by .01% oligarchs who are parasites upon the 99.99%.

Those of us awake require zero belief, only what the Emperor’s New Clothes child asks the community: look for yourselves at naked crimes in literally ~100 areas, and perhaps most obvious in:

Unlawful and lie-began wars,
So-called money,
“Covering the crimes” by corporate media.
These crimes demand arrests, obviously. Costs of these crimes:

annual war and poverty deaths in the millions, harm to billions, and looting of trillions.
Literal psychopathic oligarch “leaders” (and here).
The .01% hoard ~$30 trillion in off-shore tax havens; somewhere between ten and thirty times the amount to end all poverty on Earth forever while decreasing population growth rates.

The Delphi Declaration – Paul Craig Roberts

The Delphi Declaration asks the European peoples, especially the Germans, to do the right thing and object to the plunder of Greece by the One Percent.

This appeal to goodwill is likely to fall on deaf ears even though the pillage of Greece will create a precedent that can then be applied to Italy, Spain, France, and even Germany.

European governments, European institutions and the IMF, acting in close alliance, if not under direct control of big international banks and other financial institutions, are now exercising a maximum of pressure, including open threats, blackmailing and a slander and terror communication campaign against the recently elected Greek government and against the Greek people.

Greece – The Delphi Declaration

The world must realize that the so-called troika – IMF, European Central Bank and European Commission, is literally blackmailing Greece and subjecting her to outright economic torture.

During the weekend of 20 and 21 June 2015 a forum of international scholars, scientists, economists, sociologists, political analysts – met in Delphi Greece to discuss Greece and Europe.

The organizers were the so-called “Delphi Initiative”, sponsored by the Lyssarides Foundation in Cyprus, the Greek Institute for Research on Political Strategies, the Russian Institute for Globalization and Social Movements, and the Forum Mondial des Alternatives, France.

The world must realize that the so-called troika – IMF, European Central Bank and European Commission, is literally blackmailing Greece and subjecting her to outright economic torture.

Lower US Flag on 4th of July

We need to do a lot more searching, a lot deeper digging, if we're going to root out and destroy the virus that has been killing us for centuries!

For over half a century, I’ve written articles against racism and war. I was shocked and I grieved to see what happened at the Charleston Emanuel Church. Quickly, the call went out: We need to have a “conversation” about race in America! And, almost as quickly: Take down the Confederate flag! But, let’s be very clear: the Confederate flag is NOT a central issue here.

On the 4th of July, when Americans raise their flags as a proud symbol of their “freedom,” will anyone dare to lower their flags to half-mast to commemorate the 60,000 Americans who died in a now-acknowledged “unnecessary” war in Vietnam– let alone the millions of Asians?

Would it be disrespectful even to suggest such a gesture?

The Delphi Declaration - On Greece and Europe

Many readers of the European and American press must be confused about what actually is happening in the negotiations between Greece (Alexis Tsipras and Yannis Varoufakis). The European Troika (the IMF, European Central Bank and European Council now object to the name and want to be called simply “the Institutions”) have stepped up their demands on Syriza. What is called “negotiation” is in reality a demand for total surrender. The Troika’s demand is to force Syriza to go back on the campaign promises that it made to voters who replaced the old right-wing Pasok (“socialist”) and Conservative New Democracy coalition, or else simply apply the austerity program to which that coalition had agreed:cutbacks in pensions, deeper austerity, more privatization selloffs, and a tax shift off business onto labor. In short, economic suicide.

If a member of Congress did break omertà and reveal to the public what he read in the sealed room, he would be violating Executive Branch regulations on classified data (“national security”), and he could be arrested.

Greece – the Way Out

The Greek people are being penalized for having had the audacity to elect a socialist government – How dare they! – That’s the verdict.

What the troika is doing to Greece these days is the pinnacle of financial terrorism.It is economic waterboarding. It is blackmailing of the first degree. These people are neoliberal fascists, putting the Greek government before a dilemma – ‘either you present us with an acceptable list of austerities, or we will prepare one for you’ – literally. An austerity plan you better accept, lest you may default and being expulsed from the European monetary union and maybe even the EU. That is their threat. That is what Brussels does to a brother; to one of theirs. There is not a shred of solidarity left in this miss-called ‘Union’. This ‘Union’ doesn’t deserve existing.

Latin American Revolutions Under Attack

Do not take the Latin American revolutions for granted.

If left alone, they would thrive for decades and centuries. But the Empire is once again on the offensive. It is shaking with fury. It is ready to invade, to smash, burn to ashes all the hopes, all that which had been achieved.

Don’t believe in the “common wisdom” which proclaims that the rulers of the world simply “closed their eyes” more than a decade ago; that George W. Bush was “too busy” ravishing the Middle East, therefore “allowing” most of the Latin American countries to “sneak away” from the iron grip of the Empire.

Ukraine’s President Poroshenko Says Overthrow of Yanukovych Was a Coup

Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko requests the supreme court of Ukraine to declare that his predecessor, Viktor Yanukovych, was overthrown by an illegal operation; in other words, that the post-Yanukovych government, including Poroshenko’s own Presidency, came into power from a coup, not from something democratic, not from any authentic constitutional process at all.

In a remarkable document, which is not posted at the English version of the website of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine, but which is widely reported outside the United States, including Russia, Poroshenko, in Ukrainian (not in English), has petitioned the Constitutional Court of Ukraine (as it is being widely quoted in English):

“I ask the court to acknowledge that the law ‘on the removal of the presidential title from Viktor Yanukovych’ as unconstitutional.”

In their final opportunity to testify publicly about what it’s like trying to support a family in New York on $8.75, hundreds of cooks and cashiers from McDonald’s, Burger King, and KFC converged on the last fast food wage board held in Albany on Monday. Saying that having extra money in their pockets would not only be beneficial to their families but to the economy as well, fast food workers made their case for $15.

Sorry CopBlockers, But Sometimes a Police Shooting Is Justified

There is a right and wrong way to assert your rights during encounters with police. Deven Guilford chose the very wrong way, and ended up dead, shot seven times by a county sheriff. If you look at these photos of Sgt. Jonathan Frost after the Deven Guilford shooting, you can see the officer suffered a savage beating. Judge for yourself if you think lethal force was justified. I'm far from a police state apologist or cop bootlicker, but not every police shooting is unjustified. Regardless of how this altercation began, if you beat a man like, cop or not, he has a right to defend himself. I agree with the prosecutors report which states "law enforcement officers have the same privilege of self defense as anyone else."

Officer Who Killed 17-year-old During Traffic Stop Feared He "May have been part of a sovereign nation or militia movement."

What began as a petty traffic stop over the flashing of bright headlights ended in a 17-year-old young man's death, shot seven times by a Eaton County Michigan Sheriff on 2/28/15. An official 19 page report from the prosecutor presents reasons which no charges are being filed against Eaton County Sheriff Sgt. Jonathan Frost, and that it was justifiable self defense and use of deadly force against 17-year-old Deven Lee Guilford. In their detailed description of the incident, the prosecutor reveals that Sgt. Frost feared Deven "May have been part of a sovereign nation or militia movement" and may have been calling for backup at the outset of the conflict.

Father’s Day 2015: Man-up with strength, honor, and humor for victory

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

Dr. King’s two minutes to you:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrpqnZYAB6w

On Earth in 2015, men and fathers are in literal planet-changing contest of virtues held dear by 99.99% of humanity versus a .01% oligarchy who annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions with:

Unlawful and lie-began wars,
So-called money,
“Covering the crimes” by corporate media.

Men: the day will come to be recognized for our actions in this contest. Consider your highest calling as men, fathers, and children from Divine Origin. Strength, honor, and humor are much of what men and fathers are all about, with these virtues having much to contribute for victory of:

Peace, as the 99.99% realize they’ve been lied-into unlawful wars by the same nations who colonized every part of the planet, then engaged in two world wars among themselves.

Trapping Russia to Prove a Negative

The prove-a-negative trap is the Big Lie technique of Nazi propagandist Josef Goebbels: there is no substance to the allegations and there is no obligation to present evidence to verify, thanks to the dutiful and unquestioning nature of Western corporate “journalism”.

The United States and its Western allies are trying to ensnare Russia in an audacious disinformation trap over the Ukraine conflict. That trap involves imposing an insoluble conundrum on Vladimir Putin’s government, which we might call “prove a negative”. It is a familiar conceptual device that Washington has used elsewhere, against Iraq and Iran for example, in order to pursue what are otherwise illegitimate geopolitical aims.Russia is being held up as the guilty party that is undermining the shaky Minsk ceasefire; and Western economic sanctions are being extended “until Russia implements the ceasefire”.

The Myth of Global ‘Free’ Trade

The key to TTIP is the so-called Investor-State Dispute Settlement mechanism that essentially gives corporations free reign to sue governments using a “failure to implement” provision, if state policies or legislation interfere with profits. But is this all about trade?

There was a direct, crucial “secret” agenda linking the G7 meeting in Germany and the Bilderberg meeting in Austria last week; the advancement of the virtually secret negotiations towards the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the massive free trade agreement between the US and the EU.

Even though the corporate powers behind TTIP are itching for a deal to be reached before the end of 2015, serious (negotiation) trouble remains.

Trump for President? — Paul Craig Roberts

This is not my endorsement of Trump for President. It is merely my speculations on how we might think of how large egos might be brought into our service.

Celente put it well. If you look at the sorry collection that aspires to be the CEO of what continues to be described as the “exceptional, indispensable, most important country with the largest economy and military, the world’s only Superpower, the Uni-power,” you see a collection of nobodies. America is like the last days of Rome when contenting factions fought to put their puppet on the throne.

In actual fact, Trump might be our best candidate to date. By all accounts, he is very rich. Thus, he doesn’t need the office in order to become rich by selling out America to interest groups.

It is time to stop fighting among ourselves, for JVP and others to stop their witch hunts against deeply committed writers and activists, for JVP to stop its attempted censorship and domination of the Palestine movement, and for all of us to get on with our desperately important work.

With the publication of my book last year, “Against our Better Judgment: The hidden history of how the US was used to create Israel,” the attacks seemed to escalate.

Protesters gathered outside the Bank of England before marching to Parliament Square in one of the biggest anti-austerity events in recent years, and the first major protest since the new Government was formed.

A spokesman from the People’s Assembly, which organised the march, said: “Today is not the end of our campaign against austerity but the start of a mass movement prepared to take on this Government.”

DIY Healthcare: A New Kind of Insurance

By Brian Berletic

Health insurance is a financial scheme devised to help individuals cope with otherwise impossible-to-pay medical bills. By large numbers of people paying monthly premiums (or taxes) to a centralized insurance or healthcare provider, the smaller number of those who actually need expensive coverage can be accommodated.

But this is mainly because healthcare is so expensive in the first place. For now, it is the best we have, but what if healthcare wasn't so expensive in the first place? What if it was as affordable as food or other regular consumer products? How could healthcare become as affordable as food or regular consumer products?...

In the USA – “I Cannot Write!”

The West is finished, its culture dead. What is left is unattractive, even horrifying. There is no heart, no compassion, and no creativity.

It was the first time in many years that I had missed my column, my essays, for several weeks.

I was shocked by the state in which I found the United States.

I couldn’t breath. I lost the ability to write. I felt anger building inside me. The anger was suffocating, strangling me. It was unhealthy anger, mixed with frustration! It was not that sacred anger one feels when going to a battle against great evil. It was also somehow petty, indescribable, and pathetic. It was breaking me, humiliating me.

I hated the fights I had to fight here.

I tried to see the reality that was surrounding me with different eyes but wherever I looked I saw only a dysfunctional, sad, collapsing country and culture.

This visit broke me. It exhausted me. It thoroughly depressed me.

Jens Stoltenberg: NATO’s Mr Zig-Zag

So, who is rattling sabres here?

Obviously, the NATO alliance is on a dangerous, threatening roll toward Russia’s borders. American-led war games, thousands of troops and tanks, missiles, warplanes and warships have proliferated at dizzying speed over the past year, from the Baltic to the Black Sea. Currently, NATO is conducting its biggest-ever war manoeuvres in the Baltic region, and yet when Russia takes reasonable defensive measures, Stoltenberg accuses Moscow of sabre-rattling. Just this week, prior to the Russian ICBM announcement, the Pentagon told the Paris Air Show that it was considering the stationing of its new generation of stealth F-22 and F-35 fighter jets in Europe – another contravention in a whole series of audacious contraventions of the 1997 Russia-NATO Founding Act which forbids such NATO military expansion.

The Only Way Forward In 2015

By Brandon Turbeville

In the year 2015, America and the rest of the world finds itself at a crossroads. The time is fast approaching when the world’s population will receive the final choice between a move toward true freedom or the clampdown of total oppression. Throughout recorded history, tyrannies have arisen and morphed into other forms with the end result being the creation and maintenance of a permanent worldwide oligarchy that is attempting to ensure the end of all independent thought and action.

This oligarchy has maintained its control by a number of different methods, the concept of “divide and conquer” being one of the most important in its arsenal...

Protest over government funding to Drax CO2 carbon plan

The £2bn White Rose project plans to transport CO2 produced at Drax near Selby, through a pipeline and store it beneath the North Sea.

Campaigners say taxpayers money should be spent on educating the public on carbon reduction methods.

Developers have said it would reduce CO2 emissions at Drax by up to 90%.
The government has already awarded millions of pounds for a feasibility study for the scheme.

Campaigner Duncan Law said: "The best kind of capture of carbon is the carbon that is not emitted and if you invest in it you invest in it for the long term rather than building huge carbon intensive infrastructure."

That’s not surprising, considering their arrogance, but search any subject you wish to pursue and you’ll find that despite their algorithms, distorting mechanisms and surveillance they cannot stop the onslaught of truth coming from humanity itself.

This is a reality to be encouraged about. We are a tide of Truth coming at them so fast they honestly do not know how to handle it. We’re dismissed, minimalized, marginalized and disparaged in a host of ways, but they cannot cope with our resilience. Hence their stepped up agenda towards our physical and spiritual weakening.

China Rising — Pepe Escobar

Americans have to eventually share their preeminent position with China.”

As intellectual acumen and cross-cultural expertise go, it would be hopeless to expect self-described “Don’t Do Stupid Stuff” Obama administration foreign policy advisers — as well as Pentagon functionaries/hacks — to understand the complexities of China.

For instance, they would be incapable of evaluating all the myriad ramifications included in Professor Alfred McCoy’s masterful deconstruction of US-China geopolitics.

“The US cannot stop China’s rise. It just has to live with a bigger China, which will be completely novel for the US, as no country has ever been big enough to challenge its position. China will be able to do so in 20 to 30 years.” (Lee said that at the Future China Global Forum in Singapore, in 2011. Under Xi, China is already challenging the U.S.’s position.)

Syriza: Plunder, Pillage and Prostration

How the ‘Hard Left’ embraces the policies of the Hard Right

Greece has been in the headlines of the world’s financial press for the past five months, as a newly elected leftist party, ‘Syriza’, which ostensibly opposes so-called ‘austerity measures’, faces off against the “Troika” (International Monetary Fund, the European Commission and European Central Bank).

Early on, the Syriza leadership, headed by Alexis Tsipras, adopted several strategic positions with fatal consequences – in terms of implementing their electoral promises to raise living standards, end vassalage to the ‘Troika’ and pursue an independent foreign policy.

We will proceed by outlining the initial systemic failures of Syriza and the subsequent concessions further eroding Greek living standards and deepening Greece’s role as an active collaborator of US and Israeli imperialism.

American dreaming, from G1 to Bilderberg

G1 plus junior partners? Bilderberg? Get a job; you’re not the only show in town, any town.

What’s the connection between the G7 summit in Germany, President Putin’s visit to Italy, the Bilderberg club meeting in Austria, and the TTIP – the US-EU free trade deal – negotiations in Washington?

We start at the G7 in the Bavarian Alps – rather G1 with an added bunch of “junior partners” – as US President Barack Obama gloated about his neo-con induced feat; regiment the EU to soon extend sanctions on Russia even as the austerity-ravaged EU is arguably hurting even more than Russia.

The “civilized” G1 + junior partners could not possibly argue whether they would collectively risk a nuclear war on European soil over a Kiev-installed ‘Banderastan’, sorry, “Russian aggression.”

But peer beneath the surface, and an entirely different picture emerges: a web of self-serving trans-Atlantic elites who are attempting to warp public discourse on key issues that pose a threat not to the public interest, but to their own vested interests.

Ukrainians Dispossessed, Americans are next — Paul Craig Roberts

Americans are already dispossessed of their livelihoods and careers and their pensions are next. Wherever we look, the fate of populations under Western influence are the same. The Ukrainians are exploited, the Greeks, the British, the Americans.

Apologists for exploitation claim that the rich are richer because they are smarter. But the stupidity of the rich is everywhere visible. The greedy fools have destroyed their domestic US market. Really, how stupid can you be? How do Americans buy when they are forced by offshoring out of well paid manufacturing and software engineering jobs into being waitresses, bartenders, retail clerks and part-time Walmart workers in order that corporate bottom lines improve? Who buys the stuff that sustains the profits? Not Americans who no longer have the incomes to do so.

Norwegian pension fund divests from Israeli occupation

Norway's largest pension fund has excluded two companies "on the grounds of their exploitation of natural resources in occupied territory on the West Bank."

KLP, which manages a US$70 billion investment portfolio, formally excluded Heidelberg Cement and Cemex on June 1, following a period of investigation and engagement. The combined worth of KLP's shareholdings in both HeidelbergCement and Cemex was approximately $5 million.

Heidelberg Cement and Cemex, leading global suppliers of building materials, operate quarries in the West Bank through their respective Israeli subsidiaries. According to KLP, "the companies pay licence fees and royalties to the state of Israel" while "the products deriving from the quarries are sold primarily for use in Israel's domestic construction market."
