‘Most Transparent Administration Ever™’—Obama Administration Makes Mockery of Open Government

The slogan suggesting the Obama administration is the “most transparent” ever has been nothing but a marketing ploy, the product of an administration that Advertising Age recognized as “marketer of the year” in 2008. Not only is the Obama administration not the “most transparent administration ever,” it has become the inverse of the “most transparent administration ever.” It is now one of the most secretive administrations ever, outpacing Bush in his commitment to keep government actions concealed from the public.

Feinstein v. the CIA: A Moment of Truth

It was a truly historic moment Tuesday when Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein took to the Senate floor to warn that the CIA’s continuing cover-up of its torture program is threatening our constitutional division of power. By blatantly concealing what Feinstein condemned as “the horrible details of a CIA program that never, never, never should have existed,” the spy agency now acts as a power unto itself, and the agency’s outrages have finally aroused the senator’s umbrage.

100 Years of War Lies DEBUNKED

When Secretary of State John Kerry made his now infamous statement about Russia’s actions in Ukraine, the hypocrisy was immediately apparent to all but the most clueless of viewers. But perhaps Kerry wasn’t so wrong to expect the public to let him get away with such a transparently hypocritical statement. After all, the public have always been happy to go along with every pretext for war presented to them for decade after decade.

Americans Overwhelmingly Oppose US Intervention in Ukraine, Syria, Iran … Or Anywhere Else

Polls show that Americans are overwhelmingly opposed to U.S. military involvement in: Ukraine, Syria, Iran, or anywhere else. Indeed, a poll from Pew in December found that a majority of Americans – more than ever before in Pew’s 50-year history of polling this question – think the U.S. “should mind its own business internationally and let other countries get along as best they can on their own.” We’re sick of war …

(And we’ve been so for years.)

Obama Signs Order Declaring Ukraine Crisis an ‘Extraordinary Threat’ to National Security

On Thursday morning, President Barack Obama signed an executive order which designated the ongoing crisis in Ukraine prompted by a Russian military invasion of the Crimean Peninsula “an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.” The order allows the administration to impose visa restrictions on Russians and Crimeans which are identified as threats to Ukraine’s security or territorial integrity. The order also paves the way for the imposition of sanctions on individuals the government determines are responsible for “undermining democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine.”

MUST SEE: America’s Long War Against Humanity – Michel Chossudovsky

Michel Chossudovsky details America’s long war against humanity in this talk at the Rosa Luxemburg Conference in Berlin on January 11, 2014. Worldwide militarization is also part of a global economic agenda, namely the application of the neoliberal economic policy model which has led to the impoverishment of large sectors of the World population. The world is at the crossroads of the most serious crisis in modern history. The US has embarked on a military adventure, “a long war”, which threatens the future of humanity. This “war without borders” is being carried out at the crossroads of the most serious economic crisis in World history, which has been conducive to the impoverishment of large sectors of the World population. The Pentagon’s global military design is one of world conquest. The military deployment of US-NATO forces is occurring in several regions of the world simultaneously. The concept of the “Long War” has characterized US military doctrine since the end of World War II. Worldwide militarization is part of a global economic agenda.

US Shows Hypocrisy in Telling Russia To Stay Out Of Ukraine

Washington has threatened Russia several times since Saturday to stay out of Ukraine. President Barack Obama spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin about it over the phone. Then, on Monday, US Secretary of State John Kerry spoke of the unacceptability of invading a sovereign country on phony pretexts in order to assert one’s own interests in the 21st century. But no, he was not speaking about the United States, as one might have thought. RT’s Anastasia Churkina takes a look at the hypocrisy of the US rhetoric towards Russia over the situation in Ukraine.

An Important Second Listen to the “F–k the EU” Ukraine Recording Indicates U.S. Is Running the Revolution

An Important Second Listen to the “F–k the EU” Ukraine Recording Indicates U.S. Is Running the Revolution

At the start of February, a very important conversation between Assistant US Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt was leaked, the infamous “f—-the EU” recording. During the clip, Nuland and Pyatt discuss their desired outcome for the crisis in Ukraine. Now that 3 weeks have passed since the leak and events have developed, it is instructive to listen to the recording once again. The recording reveals Nuland and Pyatt discussing whether Vitali Klitschko should be named the deputy prime minister and seems to assume that Arseniy Yatseniuk will become prime minister. Since that conversation, Yatseniuk has, indeed, become prime minister. Anybody that tells you that the US is not running the “revolution” from behind the scenes is blowing smoke.

Ron Paul: US Is Pushing Its Own Agenda In Ukraine; Leave Ukraine Alone!

Posted by on February 24, 2014 in Government, Politics with 0 Comments

Why are US government officials so eager to tell the Ukrainians what they should do? Has anyone bothered to ask the Ukrainians? What if might help alleviate the ongoing violence and bloodshed if the Ukrainians decide to re-make the country as a looser confederation of regions rather than one tightly controlled by a central government? Perhaps Ukraine engaged in peaceful trade with countries both to the west and east would benefit all sides. But outside powers seem to be fighting a proxy war, with Ukraine suffering the most because of it.

Turning a Wedding Into a Funeral: Obama Violated His Own Rules with Yemen Drone Strike

President Barack Obama violated his own rules for the use of drone strikes in a December 2013 strike on a wedding procession in Yemen that killed 12 people, a new report from Human Rights Watch says. The US military initially claimed that the procession was actually members of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, then admitted it was a wedding procession, but claimed that most of the people killed in the attack were members of the terrorist organization. But Human Rights Watch says, “The procession also may have included members of AQAP, although it is not clear who they were or what was their fate.” The group went on to say that there is no evidence that members of the caravan posed an imminent threat, and that killing them was a violation of international human rights laws. RT’s Meghan Lopez speaks with investigative journalist Ben Swann about US drone policy and whether the attack was a violation of Obama’s own stated rules.
