Leading Economic Indicators Clash

Vice-President and Chief Economist Export Development Canada

It's early yet in 2016, but far enough along in January that we’ve all gone through the obligatory gauntlet of New Year predictions and risk calculations. On the whole, it’s a pretty cautious step into another calendar year, and with good reason. For a number of years now, hopes have been high, only to be dashed by a political, meteorological or some other equally unpredictable ‘serial interruption’, right off the bat. So, should we hunker down for another of these first-quarter events, or will structural indicators – that seem to be pointing upward – prevail?

By Eric Zuesse

On January 21st, George Soros, who has throughout his life been passionately opposed not just to communism but also to Russia, has finally stated in a Bloomberg News interview at the World Economic Forum, that the United States (and possibly the EU, but he says that the EU is in terrible economic shape itself) must now fund a new Marshall Plan for all of Europe, including, this time, even his bête noire: Russia.

The 21st Century: An Era Of Fraud

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

By Paul Craig Roberts

In the last years of the 20th century fraud entered US foreign policy in a new way.  On false pretenses Washington dismantled Yugoslavia and Serbia in order to advance an undeclared agenda.  In the 21st century this fraud multiplied many times. Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, and Libya were destroyed, and Iran and Syria would also have been destroyed if the President of Russia had not prevented it.  Washington is also behind the current destruction of Yemen, and Washington has enabled and financed the Israeli destruction of Palestine.  Additionally, Washington operated militarily within Pakistan without declaring war, murdering many women, children, and village elders under the guise of “combating terrorism.”  Washington’s war crimes rival those of any country in history.

During Martin Luther King’s 2016 birthday celebration

By Jay Janson

Okay, once again during Martin Luther King's 2016 birthday celebrations, genocide justifying US media has suckered the world by suppressing King's condemnation of "US atrocity wars and covert violence on three continents since 1945 meant to maintain unjust predatory investments." Once again, the last year of King's life during which he was vilified as a traitor for condemning the mass murder that was being perpetrated by his countrymen in Vietnam and Laos, has been tightly blacked out of all mention.
