    by Pepe Escobar, for RT November 4, 2014 Fasten your seat belts: the information war already unleashed against Russia is bound to expand to Brazil, India and China. Brazil, Russia, India and China, as it’s widely known, are the top four members of the BRICS group of emerging powers, which also includes South Africa and will incorporate other Global South nations in the near future. The BRICS immensely annoy Washington – and its Think Tankland – as they embody the concerted Global South push towards a multipolar world.

    by Pepe Escobar, for RT November 13, 2014 There’s hardly a more graphic illustration of where the multipolar world is going than what just happened at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Beijing. Take a very good look at the official photos. This is all about positioning – and this being China, pregnant with symbolic meaning. Guess who’s in the place of honor, side by side with President Xi Jinping. And guess where the lame duck leader of the “indispensable nation” has been relegated. The Chinese can also be masters at sending a global message. When President Xi…

The U.S. government is planning to create secret prisons modeled on Guantanamo, reported today the press agency Kriminform. The U.S. intelligence services are considering imprisoning the Islamic State militants in these new torture centers, while the Ukrainian government will be able to use them for its opponents, especially in the south of the country.

Carden, a Contributing Editor for “The National Interest” November 13, 2014 Despite the seemingly friendly (and subsequently much ballyhooed) encounter between Presidents Obama and Putin on the sidelines of the APEC summit in Beijing on Monday, the situation in eastern Ukraine continues to deteriorate. Reports indicate the heaviest fighting since the announcement of the September 5 ceasefire is taking place in and around Donetsk, while Ukrainian troops are said to be bracing themselves for a coming assault on the strategically important southeastern port city of…

  • White House struggles to find Hagel successor

    26 Nov 2014 | 1:52 pm
    The White House has a big problem on its hands: finding someone to replace Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, who was pushed out of the administration this week. Since Michele Flournoy withdrew her name from consideration on Tuesday, there is a growing sense that many potential candidates may be shying away from the job due to the short time frame they would be in office and concerns over how independently they can function from the National Security Council, according to both current and former senior administration and congressional officials.

    Retired neurosurgeon and potential GOP 2016 candidate Ben Carson believes race relations in America, as a whole, have "gotten worse" under President Barack Obama's leadership, saying he should take a "balanced, objective look at things" instead of invoking the race card. "I actually believe that things were better before this president was elected," Carson told Hewitt, "and I think that things have gotten worse because of his unusual emphasis on race."

  • White Officers Shooting Black Citizens —— Do The Math

    John Bradisse
    25 Nov 2014 | 9:33 pm
    Odds are very good that in a community where the police force is 80% white and the population is 80% black, there is about a 65% probabiity that a police shooting, whether right, wrong, or otherwise, will be a white officer shooting a black citizen. And in very easily half of those cases, depending on the media spin, etc, it will be seen as another white-on-black discrimination case. In reality, it is a natural progression of probabilities. The tough part is to find the proper racial proportioning to balance the situation. It’s a shame that quotas have to be set, but our highly reactive…

    Dear Mr. President, This past week a truly remarkable event transpired in the field of energy production that has gone completely unremarked in the mainstream media. This event was the independent verification of a device about the size of a ten inch piece of broom stick that over the course of 32 days produced a net energy out of 1.5 MWh, about the equivalent of burning a fifty gallon barrel of gasoline. The fuel was about 1 gram (half the weight of a penny) of a proprietary nickel powder that was not changed or added too during the test and was not completely consumed during the test. This…

Our sewer systems are overloaded by the smallest amounts of rainfalls There appeared to be a need for a nation wide rainwater harvesting system. This is a mammoth undertaking that could prevent future energy, environmental and economic issues for our country. . . Location: Pennsburg PA 18073
