having the courage to go against the position of the US-led west....

Russian television has broadcast an interview with Syrian President Assad, which shows why Western media do not want to show an interview with Assad or Putin. Assad’s statements would probably give many people in the West pause for thought.

the kingmaker wants a different EU president.....

French President Emmanuel Macron is seeking to replace European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and is currently discussing options with other EU leaders, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday, citing sources.

Von der Leyen is now gearing up for elections in less than two months, seeking to secure another five-year term. Macron, who was one of the key figures behind elevating her into the top EU job, has been openly criticizing the President’s approach to running the EU Commission.

“The commission presidency is there to defend the general interest, so it must not be over-politicized. Which, it has to be said, was not at all the case with this outgoing commission,” Macron said in Brussels last month.

more killed.........

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba has praised the US Senate’s decision to approve a $61 billion funding package, but warned that it won’t be enough to make a difference on the battlefield.

After months of wrangling, Republicans caved in to the ruling Democrats and backed the White House aid proposal in a 79-18 vote on Tuesday night. 

“Hallelujah,” Kuleba told The Guardian in an exclusive interview on Wednesday.

“No single package can stop the Russians," he added. "What will stop the Russians is a united front of all of Ukraine and all of its partners.”

there is no smoke without a cigar….

AS WE CELEBRATE SOMETHING CALLED ANZAC, TO REMEMBER THE MEN AND WOMEN OF Australian & New Zealand Army Corps WHO FOUGHT IN OUR WORLD WARS, WE STILL NEED TO THINK ABOUT WHY.

 

WHY, WHY, WHY, THESE PEOPLE HAD TO FIGHT? SURE WE KNOW: HITLER, NAPOLEON, THE DUKE FERDINAND, THE COMMUNISTS, THE TURKS, THE ARABS, THE SPANISH, THE CHINESE, THE AMERICAN INDIANS, THE INDIANS FROM INDIA, THE BLACKS, THE ABORIGINES, THE FRENCH, GENGHIS KHAN, SATAN, AN AXIS OF EVIL, THE GREEKS, THE ROMANS, THE SLAVIC HORDES, THE BOERS, THE PIRATES, THE MEXICANS, ETC, WITH THE LATESTS ON THE LONG LIST OF WHAT/WHO WE HATE, BEING XI JINPING AND VLADIMIR PUTIN…

 

ONE COULD WONDER WHAT DRUG WE’RE ON OR WHAT GENETIC MUTATION TURNED ALL OF US INTO PSYCHOPATHS — OR WARRIORS — OR GOOD DOGS FOLLOWING ORDERS TO FIGHT ON THE BEHALF OF GOVERNING PSYCHOS…

Letter to the Prime Minister of Australia,

The Honourable Anthony Albanese

I accuse!

Sir,

Would you allow me, grateful as I am for the kind reception you once extended to me, to show my concern about maintaining your well-deserved prestige and to point out that your star which, until now, has shone so brightly, risks being dimmed by the most shameful and indelible of stains?

annoying the western hegemony by countering its propaganda.....

There will only be real cooperation between Africa and Russia on the basis of real sovereignty of African states, experts say. It comes down more and more often, in our time, to deterrence through brutal force. Also, in the impossibility of affording the luxury of a nuclear deterrent weapon, we would have to find here and now the ersatz force necessary.

This force that Professor Obenga speaks about, how to go about it? We should, let us repeat again, consider not a simple partnership, but a formal alliance with Vladimir Putin's Russia, in its qualities as an uncontested military power and "permanent" counterweight to Franco-American unilateralism in the UN Security Council.

the dark side of the anglo/saxons.....

WHILE PANIC IS SETTING IN THE “WESTERN WORLD”. WE MUST KNOW THAT THE WESTERN HEGEMONY IS MAINLY THE ANGLO/SAXON CULTURAL/CONTROL/GRAB PENETRATION Of THE HUMAN PLANET.

THE ENGLISH DEFEATED NAPOLEON AND THE ENGLISH/AMERICANS DEFEATED THE GERMANS, THEMSELVES NOW WELL-TACKED TO THE ANGLO/SAXON HEGEMONY. 

THIS ENGLISH HEGEMONY STARTED WAY BACK IN THE MIDDLE AGES WITH THE CONQUESTS OF COLONIALISM, UNASHAMEDLY CALLED “THE BRITISH EMPIRE” NOW THE “AMERICAN EMPIRE”. 

WE KNOW THAT WW1 WAS A SET UP BY THE BRITISH EMPIRE TO PREVENT GERMANY TO RISE ON THE COLONIALIST MARKET…

the dark side of sciences in history.....

The dark history of genetics - with Adam Rutherford (2023 HBS Haldane Lecture)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gddkc5Snq3I

 

This lecture was recorded at the Ri on 11 October 2023.

 

Join the 2023 JBS Haldane Lecturer Adam Rutherford as he explores how, as we continue to use and celebrate the advances of our intellectual predecessors, we frequently fail to acknowledge the toxic political views that informed their work.

 

Even today, scientists are not exempt from their culture, and science is always political. In this talk Adam will explore the work, views and legacies of some of our heroes, including Karl Pearson, Ronald Fisher and yes, JBS Haldane.

 

her investigations were not welcome.....

One wonders how the Australian mainstream media will react to the news that India, the so-called biggest democracy in the world, has thrown out ABC correspondent Avani Dias from the country.

of banana-republic dollars and oily/gassy russian rubles....

The most likely outcome is that Russia’s bloated wartime public sector will block any downsizing, but high interest rates will bring down inflation. In an economy subordinate to political imperatives, there are few incentives for sustainable development. Sooner or later, this will hurt the well-being of ordinary Russians. In other words, temporary fixes and a decline in living standards will add to the political and economic headwinds facing the Kremlin. But given the existing safety margins and the nature of Western sanctions, it could take Russia many years to reach the end of its ability to muddle through such challenges.

 

a cannibal joke: what are boots?......

SYDNEY, April 22 (Reuters) - Papua New Guinea Prime Minister James Marape says his nation does not deserve to be labelled cannibals, and urged the U.S. to clear up the remnants of World War Two littered across the Pacific, after remarks by President Joe Biden last week about his missing serviceman uncle.

Biden had "appeared to imply his uncle was eaten by cannibals after his plane was shot down over PNG during WWII", Marape's office said in a statement late on Sunday.

investigating the investigation.....

What’s the scam with Penny Wong’s so-called “transparent” Binskin Inquiry into the Zomi Frankcom World Central Kitchen aid worker’s killings in Gaza? Stuart McCarthy reports.

Scams don’t get much more blatant than a government appointing an international arms dealer to “investigate” an apparent war crime involving his own weapon systems, against a humanitarian aid agency, in the name of “full transparency”. 

gas pipeline with no gas.....

The Australian public has bought a big-long gas pipeline from foreign tax cheats – but there’s no gas. It’s a white elephant! Jemena and sleepy regulators AEMC are the culprits. Energy consumers and taxpayers the victims. Michael West reports.

Energy bosses cover for tax cheat, public gets elephantine bill

The can’t say they weren’t warned this would be a shocker. They were warned by energy analyst Bruce Robertson and environment lawyer David Barnden more than five years ago. And so it is that the public has paid for a billion dollar gas pipeline which has no gas running through it. They built it anyway.

pages of the incessant aussie war book.....

It is extremely hard to kill off a public figure of the calibre of Mike Pezzullo. As with a person of similar personality, Tony Abbott, one can be sure they are out of the play for good only when their bodies lie at a crossroads at midnight, with a wooden stake through their hearts. Before that, their bloody, broken and bruised bodies may be on display, having suffered pains, indignities and humiliations no other person could survive. But while there is even a glimmer of a pulse, they are plotting their comebacks.

post-capitalism....

What the present moment reveals, once again, is that Western aggression during the “Cold War” was never about destroying socialism, as such. It was about destroying movements and governments in the periphery that sought economic sovereignty. Why? Because economic sovereignty in the periphery threatens capital accumulation in the core.

 

Capitalism is the single greatest source of violence     By Jason Hickel

 

This remains the primary objective of Western aggression today. And it is the single greatest source of violence, war and instability in the world system.
