The small minority Algerian corrupt and illegitimate power, which did not mobilize even inflating the figures, half of the electorate in the elections of April 17, decided to allow the French regime to exploit shale gas in Algeria, through his company GDF Suez, precipitating the country towards an unprecedented environmental disaster. Why the French, who refuse extraction of shale gas on their own territory, want to practice with us? By what right an illegitimate regime can negotiate such important agreements and affecting the future of the Algerian nation, if not to obtain the pledge of the former French colonizer failing to have the one of its own people, which abstained from voting massively?

Sites potentiels d’extraction en Algérie. D.R.Le pouvoir minoritaire, faible, corrompu et illégitime algérien qui n’a pas mobilisé, même en gonflant les chiffres, la moitié de l’électorat  lors des élections du 17 avril dernier, a décidé de permettre au régime français d’exploiter le gaz de schiste en Algérie, via sa société GDF Suez, précipitant le pays vers une catastrophe écologique sans précédent. Pourquoi les Français, qui refusent l’extraction du gaz de schiste sur leur propre territoire, veulent-ils la pratiquer chez nous ? De quel droit un régime illégitime peut-il négocier des accords aussi importants et qui engagent l’avenir de la nation algérienne, si ce n’est pour obtenir la caution de l’ancien colonisateur français à défaut d’avoir celle de son propre peuple qui s’est abstenu massivement de voter ?

In Germany these days, very many citizens object to the endless Russia-bashing of the NATO-oriented mainstream media. They may point out that the U.S.-backed regime change in Kiev, putting in power an ultra-right transitional government eager to join NATO, posed an urgent threat to preservation of Russia’s only warm water naval base in Crimea. Under the circumstances, and inasmuch as the Crimean population overwhelmingly approved, reinstating Crimea in the Russian federation was a necessary defensive move. Lire la suite »

MORE THAN A VOTING BOOTH, by Andre Vltchek

A specter is haunting Europe and Western world — it is this time, the specter of fascism. It came quietly, without great fanfare and parades, without raised hands and loud shouts. But it came, or it returned, as it has always been present in this culture, one that has, for centuries, been enslaving our entire planet. As was in Nazi Germany, resistance to the fascist empire is again given an unsavory name: terrorism. Partisans and patriots, resistance fighters – all of them were and have always been defined by fascist bigots as terrorists. By the logic of Empire, to murder millions of men, women and children in all corners of the world abroad is considered legitimate and patriotic, but to defend one’s motherland was and is a sign of extremism.

Capitalists, Technocrats and Fanatics: The Ascent of a New Power Bloc

Introduction

The sweeping electoral victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India is the latest expression of the world-wide advance of a new power bloc which promises to impose a New World Order harnessing ethno-religious fanaticism and narrowly trained technocrats to capitalist absolutism. The far-right is no longer at the margins of western political discourse. It is center-stage. It is no longer dependent on contributions by local militants; it receives financing from the biggest global corporations. It is no longer dismissed by the mass media. It receives feature coverage, highlighting its ‘dynamic and transformative’ leadership. Today capitalists everywhere confront great uncertainty, as markets crash and endemic corruption at the highest levels erode competitive markets. Lire la suite »

L’Europe, propriété privée des Etats-Unis. D.R.

Dans la tradition d’un Jacques Delors qui expliquait que « l’Europe devait avancer masquée » un nouveau saut vers l’inconnu se prépare, hors de tout débat et à l’insu des opinions publiques. La Commission européenne s’est ainsi vu confier en 2013 un « mandat de négociation » afin de créer un « Partenariat transatlantique pour le commerce et l’investissement » entre l’Union européenne et les États-Unis. Les dirigeants européens justifient la « diffusion restreinte » mise sur le contenu du mandat de négociation afin, affirment-ils, de rendre le travail des négociateurs plus efficace. Lire la suite »

The Fool, the Demagogue, and the Former KGB Colonel, By Edward S. Herman

John Kerry, Barak Obama, Vladimir Putin. D.R.

The fool is John Kerry, who has looked bad in his rushing around between Washington and Tel Aviv trying to get in place a “framework” agreement between Israel and the Palestinians that would show progress in the efforts of the honest broker, assailing Nicholas Maduro of Venezuela for his “terror campaign against his own people,” and, of course, denouncing the Russians for their “aggression” against the coup-regime of Ukraine. His statement that “You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on a completely trumped-up pretext,” has to be regarded as an Orwellian classic and may be his signifier in future history books, in the unlikely event that he makes it at all.
