We speak to William Robinson, author of The Global Police State. He discusses how capitalism’s crises have fuelled the rise of the global police state, the drastic inequality and poverty that has become a theme of modern capitalism which necessitates the global police state, whether there is class warfare on the poor, the growing industry of militarism and oppression and much more!
Official White House denials of involvement in a coup plot against Venezuela are in themselves worth nothing but contempt. With Washington’s decades-long record of blood-soaked dirty tricks in Latin America, inciting armed coups and aggression is what we should expect.

The standoff over the $3.8 billion Dakota Access Pipeline continues after a night of clashes left over 180 people injured. Images of some of the gruesome injures are starting to appear on social media. But this is just the latest of militarized crackdowns on peaceful protesters.

Former UN envoy to Yemen, Jamal Benomar, has given an undiplomatic assessment of the crisis in that country, in which he rhetorically explodes Saudi myths “justifying” the US-backed aerial bombing campaign. The Moroccan diplomat told media at the weekend that the ongoing conflict was a direct result of Houthi rebels having been excluded from the political process last year.
If war should come, whichever side may claim ultimate victory, nothing is more certain that victor and vanquished alike would glean a gruesome harvest of human misery and suffering.
– UK Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, July 31, 1939, to the House of Commons
Fallujah has become a symbol of Iraq’s suffering since the onslaught on the country in 1991, numerous, uncounted interim US-UK bombings, then the 2003 invasion, occupation – and misery unending.
The UK Ministry of Defence is worried; worried that the public have become ‘risk averse’ to the point that we won’t want to go to war anymore; so worried that in November 2012 they wrote a report – The Implications of Current Attitudes to Risk for the Joint Operational Concept – made public today by the Guardian. The report, while purportedly studying ‘risk’, is really asking ‘How do we sell war to the public’? Continue reading

WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 21, 2012)
Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today released the following statement following the announcement that the “surge” in Afghanistan has ended. In 2009, 33,000 additional troops were deployed to Afghanistan. Today, troop deployment levels have returned to the pre-“surge” levels. Sixty-eight thousand brave men and women continue to put their lives on the line.
NATO’s alleged “concerns” over Syria and its anticipated military intervention in that country seem to multiply and interchange like an alchemist’s brew. From human rights and democratic reforms, to the latest alleged concern of a takeover in Syria by Al Qaeda militants and the theft of chemical weapons of mass destruction.
I read a lot of news stories every day as I munch my way through the BBC News, VOR, RT, Dissident Voice, Strategic Culture Foundation, Global Research, countless RSS feeds, and so it goes… A lot of news sources and obviously I can’t read everything but what strikes me first, as it does I suspect everyone else, are the headlines, and it’s from these that we take our cues as to the importance of an event, especially to those who rule.

We discuss what really happened in Libya, including the war crimes perpetrated by NATO in support of the rebels, and how the media helped to enable those war crimes by covering up for the perpetrators.
