Rachel Blevins – The Rothschild banking empire will ensure that its control continues to stay within the family for a seventh generation as David de Rothschild, 75, is set to hand the role of chairman over to his son, Alexandre de Rothschild, 37, in June.
The banking dynasty has been passed between generations for the last 200 years. It was started by Mayer Amschel Rothschild as a French railway company, and five of his sons went on to establish banking businesses across Europe. Financial Times reported that the investment bank is currently pushing to “diversify from its core French and British advisory business to help it ride out less buoyant periods in Europe’s mergers and acquisitions market.” Continue reading “Rothschild Passing Dynasty on to 7th Generation”
Niamh Harris – More than 1,500 protesters gathered in central Tel Aviv on Saturday demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over corruption allegations.
Israeli police recently recommended that charges be brought against Netanyahu for bribery, fraud and breach of trust
Netanyahu’s days in office are starting to look numbered as police investigate two new corruption probes. Senior figures in Netanyahu’s Likud party have started calling him “a dead duck”, according to Israeli media reports.
RT reports: The “Bibi Netanyahu go home” slogan once again united the Israeli crowd holding their weekly anti-government corruption protest in Tel Aviv. Waving signs that read “Bibi, you are not above the law,”“Love Israel, separate from Netanyahu,” they chanted, “A mafia country and a corrupt Prime Minister.” Continue reading “Israelis Demand Netanyahu Resignation Over Corruption Charges”

Sean Adl-Tabatabai – Israel has been caught harvesting organs from at least 18,000 innocent dead Syrian civilians since the outbreak of war in 2012.
According to Damascus University, Israeli authorities routinely take the organs from dead Syrian children and adults and then sell them on the black market for use in organ transplants.
Awdnews.com reports: A 2001 BBC report disclosed that Israel per capita stands as the world’s largest recipient nation for organ transplants yet is the country with the fewest organ donors.
The problem is additionally compounded by the fact that the Tel Aviv government including the Minister of Defense has historically encouraged the practice, only making organ harvesting and trafficking illegal in 2008. Continue reading “Israel Caught Harvesting Organs From Dead Syrians”
Katherine Frisk – The United States of America was founded on a federated system with small central government, where the individual states had a large degree of autonomy and control in the decision-making process as to the laws that they did or did not want to implement within their own regions. America was the land of opportunity where millions from Europe, the poor, the tired, the huddled masses who, with enough determination and hard work, made a decent life for themselves and their families.
Over the last 70 years since the end of WW2, the government in Washington D.C. has grown to such a degree that the Founding Father’s would not recognize it. Control has been centralized, and by incremental steps the states have lost and are losing more and more control over their own decision-making.
The same can be said of Europe where power has been centralized into the EU parliament. In both instances the standard of living for the average middle class person has declined dramatically in the last 20 years, global corporate monopolies have gobbled up every small, medium and large private business enterprise and a large sucking sound has been heard where wealth has vacuumed up to the top and into the pockets of the elites, while those on the ground have been left all the poorer for it.
Both regions have all the signs of becoming dictatorial, fascist police states where the voters aspirations and concerns do not count. As Martin Shultz of the EU recently proclaimed following the Brexit referendum: “It is Not the EU Philosophy that the Crowd can Decide its Fate.” In the USA, voter rigging ensures that the elite in society remain in power, while the will of the people is undermined.

Thomas Are – What kind of people would enjoy a sumptuous meal in front of a starving child and simply say, “Go away kid, you bother me.”? None that I know. What kind of people would deliberately withhold food and destroy the means of growing food in the context of abundance surrounded by children reaching out for crumbs from the a table and simply say, “I don’t care?” I don’t personally know anyone so calloused because I don’t personally know any Israeli Zionists.
Next month, Israel will be celebrating its 50th anniversary of occupying Palestinian West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza. Is that something of which to be proud?
Since the Six Day War Israel has:
—Demolished over 48,000 homes in the West Bank and Gaza;
—Confiscated over 586,000 acres of Palestinian land the West Bank;
—Created 300,000 Palestinian refugees;
—Colonized the West Bank with over 600,000 Jewish settlers;
—Enacted over 50 laws that discriminate against Israel’s Arab minority, and
—Established an apartheid legal system with civil courts for Jewish settlers and separate military courts for 4.5 million Palestinians, including indefinite detention without trial and a conviction rate of over 99%. Continue reading “What Kind of People”
