Stephen Lendman ~ Russia: Waging Peace In Ukraine

“On August 6, the Russian Investigative Committee claimed “irrefutable evidence” of illegal white phosphorous bombs use against civilians. Israel uses them and other terror weapons against defenseless Palestinians. Washington knows what’s ongoing. It approves by turning a blind eye to what demands condemnation. The battle for Ukraine’s soul continues.” S Lendman

russianDollsThroughout months of conflict in Southeastern Ukraine, Russia has gone all-out to resolve things diplomatically.

Yet Putin bashing never quits. He’s viciously demonized. Truth is buried. Facts are conveniently twisted.

He’s wrongfully accused of supplying weapons and fighters to aid Southeastern Ukrainian anti-government forces’ liberating struggle.

His spokesman, Dmitri Peskov, categorically denies Russia’s involvement. “We have said repeatedly that no equipment is being supplied there,” he said. No Russian troops are involved.

Moscow wants conflict ended. It wants diplomatic efforts to do it. On Sunday, Russian, German, French and Ukrainian foreign ministers met at a villa outside Berlin.

Doing so was called a prelude to ceasefire talks while fierce fighting rages.

The Atlantic Council is a right-wing/hawkish Washington-based think tank. Adrian Karatnycky is a senior fellow.

“The Ukrainians have been making so many gains that their incentive is to keep at this as much as possible,” he said. Continue reading

Carl Herman ~ UN Just Like US Constitution: Great Law/Limit Gone Forever Until Orwellian-Criminal ‘Leaders’ Arrested

“When US “leaders” egregiously violate almost every single limit to power within the Constitution, including UN treaty limits in endless wars, the meanings of the US Constitution and UN Charter are destroyed.” C Herman

A law is a limit of what actions are allowed among groups of people. Laws/limits are natural expressions to support group actions, such as rules to allow a sport to be played, having traffic going in the same direction on one side of the road for efficiency and safety, and community trash-pickup services with a day of the week to expect pickups.

The UN Charter and US Constitution are laws/limits upon government power to support what most people agree are essential outcomes for a national and international community: strict limitations on war, and upholding Natural Rights. The ideas of limited government and constitutional republic are central to American government and values. The very definition of “United States” is our constitution.

The American Revolution, Declaration of Independence, and US Constitution are all heroic expressions to keep government within clear limits because the alternative to limited government is unlimited government; that is, dictatorial power to do whatever is dictated/said. Continue reading

Paul Craig Roberts ~ In The West Respect for Truth No Longer Exists

“The city upon the hill, the light unto the world, the home of the exceptional, indispensable people is the home of Satan’s lies where truth is prohibited and war is the end game.” – Paul Craig Roberts

PaulCraigRobertsThe Western media have proved for all to see that the Western media comprises either a collection of ignorant and incompetent fools or a whorehouse that sells war for money.

The Western media fell in step with Washington and blamed the downed Malaysian airliner on Russia. No evidence was provided. In its place the media used constant repetition. Washington withheld the evidence that proved that Kiev was responsible. The media’s purpose was not to tell the truth, but to demonize Russia.

Now we have the media story of the armored Russian column that allegedly crossed into Ukraine and was destroyed by Ukraine’s rag-tag forces that ISIS would eliminate in a few minutes. British reporters fabricated this story or were handed it by a CIA operative working to build a war narrative. The disreputable BBC hyped the story without investigating. The German media, including Die Welt, blared the story throughout Germany without concern at the absence of any evidence. Reuters news agency, also with no investigation, spread the story. Readers tell me that CNN has been broadcasting the fake story 24/7. Although I cannot stand to watch it, I suspect Fox “news” has also been riding this lame horse hard. Readers tell me that my former newspaper, The Wall Street Journal, which has fallen so low as to be unreadable, also spread the false story. I hope they are wrong. One hates to see the complete despoliation of one’s former habitat. Continue reading

Brandon Smith ~ Order Out Of Chaos: The Doctrine That Runs The World

“The progression of crises suggests that the next war will lead to total globalization under the dominance of a minority of elitists posing as “wise men” who only wish to bring peace and harmony to the masses. In the meantime, the skeptics will continue to mindlessly debate in the face of all reason that the whole thing was a fluke, an act of random mathematical chance, leading coincidentally to the one thing the establishment rulers crave: total global totalitarian micromanagement.” B Smith

GunjArt“From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Webster, has so ably shown, a definitely recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.” - Winston Churchill, February 1920, in an article that appeared in the Illustrated Sunday Herald

The concept of conspiracy frightens some people, so much so that they are willing to overlook any and all evidence that world events are for the most part directed, rather than chaotic and coincidental. For those who are uneducated and unaware, explanations for the terrible tides of politics and war generally revolve around a false understanding of Occam’s razor. They argue that the theory states that the “simplest explanation” is usually the correct one for any particular problem or crisis. But Occam’s razor actually states that the simplest explanation according to the evidence at hand is usually the correct answer for any given problem. That is to say, the simplest explanation must conform to the evidence, or it is likely not correct.

Unfortunately, “skeptics” of directed conspiracy often turn a blind eye to evidence that is contrary to their simple explanations, while arguing that simplification is its own vindication. In other words, they don’t feel the need to defend their simplistic world view because, in their minds, simplicity stands on its own as self-evident. There was a time when men believed that the planets revolved around each other because they were tied together by long glass strings, and this was evident to them because it was the simplest explanation they could come up with. The thinking of skeptics of the New World Order and concerted globalization is much like this. Continue reading

Paul Craig Roberts ~ Washington Has Placed The World On The Road To War

“[Igor] Prosvirnin expresses anger that is white hot: “Germans have failed their test. When Evil has returned again to Europe, you do not even attempt to resist it, and immediately fall prostrate at its feet like a slave.” As Russians see it, all of Europe is a slave to the evil emanating from Washington.” P C Roberts

PaulCraigRobertsThe drums for war are being loudly beaten in Washington, European capitals, and the presstitute Western media. A headline in the Asia Times is “NATO Is Desperate For War.” http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Central_Asia/CEN-01-080814.html This time the target is Russia, a major nuclear power.

The deadly consequences of such a war would extend beyond Russia, Europe, and the US to the entire world. The Western use of lies to demonize Russia endangers life on earth and reveals the West to be both reckless and irresponsible. Yet, few voices are raised against this recklessness and irresponsibility.

Ron Unz brings to our attention the important voice of a distinguished Dutch journalist, Karel Van Wolferen. Wolferen http://www.unz.com/article/the-ukraine-corrupted-journalism-and-the-atlanticist-faith/ and Unz himself http://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda-who-shot-down-flight-mh17-in-ukraine/ are important offsets to what Unz regards, correctly in my opinion, as “the utter corruption and unreliability of the mainstream American media.” Continue reading

Congressman Chris Stewart (R-Utah) On Mission To Disarm Federal Agencies

Militarized IRS, FDA, SSA, DOE erodes trust, he says

Congressman Chris Stewart (R-Utah)

Guns.com ~ Following a host of federal agencies moving to equip their inspectors with military-grade weapons, some on Capitol Hill are calling for their disarmament.

The proposed legislation takes issue with the growing creep of federal SWAT-type units that have been forming since the 2002 Homeland Security Act granted various agency Offices of Inspectors General arrest and firearm authority. The House bill calls for these agencies to not only lose that authority, but also to restrict them from acquiring military weaponry.

“It’s disturbing to see the stories of federal regulators armed to the teeth and breaking into homes and businesses when there was no reason to think there would be resistance,” Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah), sponsor of the legislation, said in a statement from his office.

Stewart explained his concerns about these special law enforcement teams, saying, “I understand that federal agents must be capable of protecting themselves. But what we have observed goes far beyond providing necessary protection. When there are genuinely dangerous situations involving federal law, that’s the job of the Department of Justice, not regulatory agencies like the FDA or the Department of Education. Not only is it overkill, but having these highly-armed units within dozens of agencies is duplicative, costly, heavy handed, dangerous and destroys any sense of trust between citizens and the federal government.”
