Brazil’s media has completely lost control of the narrative internationally, but also increasingly within Brazil. Their sleazy plan to install as president the corruption-tainted, deeply unpopular, oligarch-serving Vice President Michel Temer – who just this week, in a indescribably Orwellian manner, called proposals for “new elections” a “coup” – is becoming untenable.

The Doomsday Clock is an internationally recognized design that conveys how close we are to destroying our civilization with dangerous technologies of our own making. First and foremost among these are nuclear weapons, but the dangers include climate-changing technologies, emerging biotechnologies, and cybertechnology that could inflict irrevocable harm, whether by intention, miscalculation, or by accident, to our way of life and to the planet.

23 Apr 2016 - The conviction that invasion, bombing, and special forces benefit large swaths of the globe, while remaining consonant with a Platonic ideal of the national interest, runs deep in the American psyche. Nothing undermines the American belief in military force. No matter how often its galloping about results in resentment, the U.S. gets up again to do good elsewhere. Afghanistan commander Gen. Stanley McChrystal pointed out that drone strikes are great recruiters, not for the U.S. military, but for the Taliban, al Qaeda, and ISIS.

The saga of the M101 contamination should serve as a reminder of the contradictory and often hypocritical approach taken by the states that employ DU weapons – and of the challenge that the use of DU weapons poses to fundamental international radiation protection norms.

Ciò che è notevole, e probabilmente decisivo, è che i partecipanti non si contentano di aggiungere un paragrafo sulla nonviolenza nella dottrina della violenza legittima e della guerra giusta, ma mettono in discussione questa dottrina in nome dell'esigenza di nonviolenza. «Quelli tra noi – afferma il documento – che si pongono nella tradizione cristiana sono chiamati a riconoscere il carattere centrale della nonviolenza attiva nella visione e nel messaggio di Gesù.

18 Apr 2016 - Some, including journalists, have written to me inquiring about or voicing their concern at the recent Israeli government minister’s threat of “civil targeted killing” against BDS “leaders” and activists. Moshe Dayan once said that “Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.” The current Israeli regime is scrupulously heeding Dayan’s advice. But “mad dogs” can be stopped. Indeed, mad dogs must be stopped, as there is no telling whom they may bite next.

The Rev. Daniel J. Berrigan, a Jesuit priest and poet whose defiant protests helped shape the tactics of opposition to the Vietnam War and landed him in prison, died on Saturday [30 Apr] in New York City. He was 94. The United States was tearing itself apart over civil rights and the war in Southeast Asia when Father Berrigan emerged in the 1960s as an intellectual star of the Roman Catholic “new left,” articulating a view that racism and poverty, militarism and capitalist greed were interconnected pieces of the same big problem: an unjust society.

On May 26, a man responsible for complicity in horrific war crimes, Henry Kissinger, will arrive in Toronto, along with another similarly shady character, Shimon Peres, to speak at the incredibly named Spirit of Hope gathering. Meanwhile, CANSEC16, the annual gathering of Canada's war industry, along with companies that profit from mass surveillance, border control, militarization of police forces, and refugee interdiction, will take place at Ottawa's EY Centre on May 25 and 26. It expects over 11,000 visitors and 61 international delegations.

When all is said and done, the most likely scenario is that the new round of sanctions will produce no better results than previous rounds. This is so not only because North Korea has many ways to procure items needed for its military purposes, and plenty of willing private sellers.

Why not make a Reykjavik Mediation Center, politically and internationally independent, and on Iceland's location between West and East, USA and Russia? Look at the map. For Reykjavík to invite USA and Russia, with Kiev and Donetsk. Maybe also Brussels, in the sense of NATO and EU. Issue: the conflict in and around Ukraine--meaning "at the border", between two nations, Catholic-Ukrainian and Orthodox-Russian; with much hatred and violence.

The entire system is built upon a fraud. The losses have been hidden and papered over with trillion dollar cash infusions by governments and central banks around the world. Every single asset now… I don’t care what asset… you want to look at currency, debt, housing, metals, the stock market… pick an asset… there’s no price discovery mechanism behind it whatsoever… it’s all fake… it’s all being distorted. It’s time to prepare for a collapse of a magnitude never before witnessed.

A policy of torture, a policy of holding people incommunicado in secret prisons, a policy of rendering people to third countries to undergo even more brutal torture, does nothing but serve as a recruiting tool for terrorists. Torture doesn’t prevent terrorism, it causes it.
