Selected Articles: Trump Imposes Sanctions on Turkey

A future without independent media leaves us with an upside down reality where according to the corporate media “NATO deserves a Nobel Peace Prize”, and where “nuclear weapons and wars make us safer”.

Lessons from Ukraine: Shift Foreign Aid to U.S. Desperate Domestic Aid Programs

By Dr. Barbara G. Ellis, October 15, 201

If anything, the Trump-Ukraine impeachment issue reveals to the American public that ever since 1961 when the Foreign Assistance Act  was passed, perhaps nearly trillions of our tax dollars have been used by decades  of administrations as a primary tool to dictate foreign policy to resource-rich, poverty-ridden countries. Or those considered geographically strategic. Humanitarian and developmental aid have always been a cynical cosmetic cover.

The United States Is Unlikely to Desire Conflict with a Formidable Iran

By Shane Quinn, October 15, 2019

Iran and Iraq contain the fourth and fifth largest proven oil reserves in the world respectively. Control of these two countries would place a power like the United States in a particularly strong global position. Zbigniew Brzezinski, the former US National Security Advisor, noted after the Iraq invasion that command over the Middle East would allow the White House to have “politically critical leverage on the European and Asian economies that are also dependent on energy exports from the region”.

Kurds Face Stark Options after US Pullback from Northern Syria

By Pepe Escobar, October 15, 2019

Trump’s tweet bisects the surreal geopolitical spectacle of Turkey attacking a 120-kilometer-long stretch of Syrian territory east of the Euphrates to essentially expel Syrian Kurds. Even after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogancleared with Trump the terms of the Orwellian-named “Operation Peace Spring,” Ankara may now face the risk of US economic sanctions.

UN General Assembly 2019: Venezuela, Russia, China Denounce Violations of International Treaties and Distortions of UN Charter

By Carla Stea, October 15, 2019

Having failed to force regime change on Venezuela, using the most drastic methods, the latest US connivance attempts to manipulate the United Nations Credentials Committee to evict the legitimate Maduro government of Venezuela from the United Nations, and usurp its place with their puppet, Juan Guaido and his gang.  This newest “ingenious” ploy failed, however, as the majority of UN member states support the Maduro government, despite the bombardment by an obsequious major Western media disinformation campaign.

Trump Imposes Sanctions on Turkey in Response to Ankara’s “Operation Peace Spring” in Syria

By Sarah Abed, October 15, 2019

On Monday, after a weekend of bloody chaos in northeastern Syrian brought on by Turkey’s cross border military incursion “Operation Peace Spring” which included airstrikes, ISIS prison breaks, and a continuation of the exodus we’ve seen over the past few days of over a hundred thousand civilians fleeing their homes, President Trump signed an Executive Order authorizing sanctions against current and former Turkish government officials and anyone who is contributing to Turkey’s actions in destabilizing northeast Syria.

Civil Rights Are on the Chopping Block in New Supreme Court Term

By Prof. Marjorie Cohn, October 15, 2019

This term, the Supreme Court will decide whether people can be fired for being transgender or LGBQ, if people brought to the U.S. as children can be deported, whether states can impose restrictions on abortion that disproportionately harm poor women, how firm the separation between church and state is, the scope of the Second Amendment and whether criminal defendants can be convicted by less-than-unanimous juries.

The Eurozone In Crisis? New President of the European Central Bank (ECB) has a Criminal Record. Christine Lagarde

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky, October 14, 2019

What media reports fail to mention is that Lagarde is a corrupt official involved in financial fraud. She has a criminal record.

Is the Eurozone in danger? Financial fraud is embedded at the highest levels of political and economic decision-making. A senior official in high office with a criminal record can easily be manipulated. Indelibly this will affect the way she manages the ECB, with potential impacts on the very fabric of monetary policy.
