Chaos – not Victory – is Empire’s Name of the Game

“Once again a country “liberated” by the West is sinking deeper and deeper into chaos.”

This could be anyone of the countries in conflict, where Washington and its Western and Middle Eastern stooges sow war – eternal chaos, misery, death – and submission.

This is precisely the point: The Washington / NATO strategy is not to ‘win’ a war or conflict, but to create ongoing – endless chaos. That’s the way (i) to control people, nations and their resources; (ii) to assure the west is in continuous need for military – troops and equipment – remember more than 50% of the US GDP depends on the military industrial complex, related industries and services; and (iii) finally, a country in disarray or chaos, is broke and needs money – money with hardship conditions, ‘austerity’ money from the notorious IMF, World Bank and other associated nefarious ‘development institutions’ and money lenders; money that equals enslavement, especially with corrupt leaders that do not care for their people.

When The Elites Wage War On America, This Is How They Will Do It

By Brandon Smith

The consequences and patterns of war, whether by one nation against another or by a government against the citizenry, rarely change. However, the methods of war have evolved vastly in modern times. Wars by elites against populations are often so subtle that many people might not even recognize that they are under attack until it is too late. Whenever I examine the conceptions of “potential war” between individuals and oligarchy, invariably some hard-headed person cries out: “What do you mean ‘when?’ We are at war right now!” In this case, I am not talking about the subtle brand of war. I am not talking about the information war, the propaganda war, the economic war, the psychological war or the biological war. I am talking about outright warfare, and anyone who thinks we have already reached that point has no clue what real war looks like.

The recent exposure of the nationwide Jade Helm 15 exercise has made many people suspicious, and with good reason...

UK General Election: Democracy hits the bottom

Neither Cameron nor Miliband look like getting an overall majority...

We are forced to choose between dubious pledges by low-calibre leaders nobody wants

It’s polling day and Britain faces a miserable choice. Whichever way it goes it’ll be disastrous.

The two main parties, Conservatives (Tories) and Labour, are neck and neck with a passel of smaller parties snapping at their heels with increasing support.

The economy is still in a deep hole. The much trumpeted recovery is half-baked and fragile. It is based on an increasingly low-wage economy while the fat cats at the other end of the scale keep getting fatter.

Flashback - It was hard to stomach David Cameron preaching austerity from a golden throne

At a state banquet for the new Lord Mayor on Monday, David Cameron gave a speech about his commitment to the cause of permanent austerity. He stood up to speak from a golden chair, and read his notes from a golden lectern.

As it happens, I was at the banquet too and heard the news about permanent spending cutbacks for myself. Sadly I was not there as a dignitary, a foreign diplomat, a captain of industry or the director of a big City firm. I was there as a waitress. The contrast between what he was saying and where he was saying it seemed initially almost too laughable to get worked up about. But actually, it reflected something chilling in Cameron's attitude towards the people he purports to be working for.

‘The Fraud of War': US Military’s Black Market Fuel Racket in Afghanistan

“According to a recent report from the BBC this week, some owners of oil tankers being used to supply fuel to NATO Forces in Afghanistan believe that some of the attacks on their convoys are suspicious. Yes, you heard that right. Contractors have been caught red-handed attacking their own vehicles whilst traveling from Pakistan to Afghanistan.

The report explains, “Evidence suggests that bombs have been planted in the tankers by the “NATO contractors” – individuals or companies who have been contracted by NATO to supply fuel and goods to forces in Afghanistan.”

“Dost Mohammad, an oil tanker owner from Nowshera district, stated that a NATO contractor had recently been caught trying to plant a bomb in an oil tanker. He added that the contractor had apparently sold off the fuel before staging a bombing of the vehicle. “Only 2,000 litres from the original 50,000 litres had been left in the tanker to cover up the crime,” he said.

Will superweeds, regulation create a perfect storm in Iowa farmlands?

Let’s unpack what has happened. Farmers’ dissatisfaction with rising costs of herbicide-resistant weeds has been evident since 2008. But another superweed, Palmer amaranth, has now arrived in five Iowa counties. By 2004, this weed was already costing Southern farmers $35-40 an acre to control. Now even more tolerant to herbicides, this amaranth costs as much as $150 per acre to control in some states. But EPA’s decision to constrain glyphosate use is not just focused on Palmer amaranth, because a dozen other superweeds also plague 60 million acres of U.S. croplands. As Iowa State University’s Mike Owen conceded, “Simple and convenient tactics are failing rapidly and farmers must diversify, not just the herbicides they use, but everything.”

In March, the WHO claimed a possible link between glyphosate exposure and non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Conclusive or not, this report will be hotly debated. But what is not debated is that non-Hodgkins rates in the U.S. have doubled since the 1980s. It has become the fifth-leading cause of cancer in the United States. Farmers’ and farmworkers’ exposure to a variety of stresses already affects their health. Since they are the people who feed America, our agricultural workforce must consider whether additional safeguards are needed to avoid potential health risks.

University drops action against researcher investigating high cancer rates & link to GM crops (thanks to public support)

University dean who called for sanctions against Dr Medardo Avila Vazquez reported to have signed deal with Monsanto

The National University of Cordoba, Argentina has dropped the administrative sanctions it had planned against a doctor who conducted cancer research in the town of Monte Maiz in the face of huge popular and scientific support for his work.

Dr Medardo Avila Vazquez and his team conducted a survey that found that the incidence of cancer in Monte Maiz was three times the provincial and national average, correlating with exposure to pesticides in the area. The main crops grown are GM soy and maize.

The administrative sanctions against Dr Vazquez were requested by Juan Marcelo Conrero, the dean of the Faculty of Agriculture.

Ultra-Secrecy Surrounds Barack Obama’s New Global Economic Treaty Which Would Destroy Thousands Of American Businesses And Millions Of Good Paying American Jobs.

Barack Obama is secretly negotiating a global economic treaty which would destroy thousands of American businesses and millions of good paying American jobs. In other words, it would be the final nail in the coffin for America’s economic infrastructure. Obama knows that if the American people actually knew what was in this treaty that they would be screaming mad, so the negotiations are being done in secret.

Matrixology 101: debates that never happen

Burundi Court Validates President's Third Term Bid Amid Protests

Burundi's Constitutional Court on Tuesday validated the president's controversial bid for a third term but the deputy president of the court, who fled to Rwanda ahead of the ruling, called it unconstitutional.

The ruling came amid prolonged demonstrations against President Pierre Nkurunziza's decision to seek a third term. At least nine people have been killed in violent confrontations with the police since last week, according to the Burundi Red Cross. Scores have been wounded.

Burundi's constitution says the president is elected by universal direct suffrage for a mandate of five years, renewable one time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may well lead to a civil war in the country, if people do not feel that their concerns and needs are not addressed.

Rand Paul's Laughable 'Blogger Action Network': Zionist, Pro-Israel, Pro-Netanyahu, scared of Iran & Muslim Extremism

Rand's latest approved blogger warns ""Radical Islam is a threat to our way of life. We need to understand the world from its perspective to combat it." Rand's other blogger ironically has a front-page story supporting Ted Cruz for president, and stresses "what an important ally Israel is to the USA." If this is the best Randy can do, his laughable (albeit entertaining) campaign is in deep trouble. RandPaulZionist.com has the latest.
