The ‘hope’ having evaporated, the ‘change’ largely absent, President Obama is visiting Japan April 24-25 with a free trade agenda. However, cracks appear to be emerging in the president’s ‘Pivot to Asia’.

The Obama Presidential legacy-building machine is under duress. His second term has quickly led to a widespread sense of bafflement as to quite why he was re-elected, let alone first gained office. That great sweep of ‘hope’ and‘change’ has resulted in a ‘dithering’, intrusive presidency exhibiting a greater drone bloodlust than his less-than-dove-ish predecessor.

Having snubbed and snooped Europe with equal vigor, President Obama is now focusing on free trade to deliver a legacy…

People holding illegal arms and occupying government buildings are perfectly OK, as long as they are permitted to do so, believes Washington’s top diplomat in Europe. But doing exactly the same thing without permission is bad.

This piece of infallible logic came from the US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, as she refused to equate the situation in Ukrainian capital, Kiev, in February with the present one in eastern Ukraine. In both cases armed militias have seized buildings and refused to leave.

“You can’t compare the situation in Kiev, where now everything that is still being held by protesters is being held with licenses and with the agreement of the government of Ukraine, with the agreement of the Rada, or with regular leases from the owners of the buildings,” Nuland told CNN in an interview.

Opponents of Scottish independence speak of pensions being lost in the potential separation from the UK. It comes after a recent poll showed that the gap between Yes and No votes is narrowing, with unionists losing ground.

The landmark ICM survey revealed Sunday a decline of the No vote from 46 per cent to 42 percent over the past month. At the same time the Yes vote remained steady at 39 percent. With the “don’t knows” excluded from the count, the No vote stands at 52 percent, just four percent ahead of the Yes vote.

It’s the highest level of support for Scotland’s independence since last August, and with only five months remaining till the September 18 referendum, the poll opened to criticism the campaigning of those wishing to keep the union in place.

“These are very encouraging polls and show the yes…

Interview with Deena Stryker

Press TV has conducted an interview with Deena Stryker, a journalist with opednews.com from Philadelphia, about Russia accusing Ukraine of violating the Geneva deal signed recently in an attempt to ease tensions in the crisis-hit Eastern European country.

What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.

Press TV: Do you also blame the authorities in Kiev for non-compliance with the Geneva accord?

Stryker: Obviously they have not complied. On the other hand the Geneva accord is the usual standard refrain – refrain from violence, we strongly condemn, … – it is so not specific that it is easy not to comply.

Press TV: You see, those who are in the streets occupying installations , the pro-Russian activists, they say that they do not recognize that agreement, that they are going to continue with the occupations and the protests…

Saudi and French intelligence authorities are reportedly working on a plan to disrupt forthcoming presidential election in Syria, which may award President Bashar al-Assad a new term in office.

Informed sources, speaking on the condition of anonymity, stated that the plan is being devised by agents from Saudi and French intelligence services in a border region between Syria and Jordan, Lebanon’s al-Manar television network reported.

The sources further stated that the massive operations being conducted by Syrian Army troops to purge the central city of Homs of foreign-sponsored militants fighting against the Damascus government have caused concern among officials in Riyadh and Paris.

The United States has run out of options against Iran as sanctions against the Islamic Republic’s energy sector are threatening Russia’s natural gas supplies to Europe, an analyst says.

In a column for the Press TV website, Mohammad Marandi, a professor at the University of Tehran, said the Western governments bolstered Russia’s monopoly by excluding “Iran, with the world’s second-largest proven reserves of natural gas, from the EU market.”

“And now that they wish to impose a Kiev-based coup regime on southern and eastern Ukraine, they have almost no cards to play,” Marandi wrote.

He said the sanctions imposed on Iran to stifle Tehran are now close to backfiring.

On April 20th, Sabrina Siddiqui headlined at Huffington Post, “Bob Corker: ‘Assad Was Wise’ To Kill 1,200 With Chemical Weapons And ‘Embarrass’ The U.S.” She didn’t challenge the veracity of the Obama Administration’s (and Republican Senator Corker’s) charge that the sarin gas attack came from Assad’s forces instead of from jihadist rebels who were trying to oust Assad. But, evil though Assad is, that charge against him is a lie, which was definitively nailed down as such, by Seymour Hersh, on April 4th headlining at the London Review of Books“The Red Line and the Rat Line: Seymour Hersh on Obama, Erdogan, and the Syrian Rebels.” The gas attack was perpetrated by Turkish Prime Minister Recip Erdogan’s allies the jihadist al-Nusra rebels, who are allied in Syria with Al Qaeda, against Assad.

PressTV: US judge questions Guantanamo detention

A US Supreme Court judge raised questions Monday about the government’s authority to detain “terrorism suspects” in US-run Guantanamo prison.

Progressive Justice Stephen Breyer issued a statement in which he outlined several areas that the court has yet to address concerning the government’s detention authority.

The court has not made any decision on whether the US military could detain someone, who was not “engaged in an armed conflict against the United States’ in Afghanistan prior to his capture,” even if that person was a member of al-Qaeda or the Taliban, Breyer stated.

Even if such detention was allowed, he said, the court also had not decided whether the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), passed in September 2001 following the 9/11 attacks, or the Constitution “limits the duration of detention.”

The 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force allows the US president to…

The American Middle Class Is No Longer the World’s Richest

Originally posted on American Everyman:

from the New York Times

The American middle class, long the most affluent in the world, has lost that distinction.

While the wealthiest Americans are outpacing many of their global peers, a New York Times analysis shows that across the lower- and middle-income tiers, citizens of other advanced countries have received considerably larger raises over the last three decades.

After-tax middle-class incomes in Canada — substantially behind in 2000 — now appear to be higher than in the United States. The poor in much of Europe earn more than poor Americans.

The numbers, based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, offer some of the most detailed publicly available comparisons for different income groups in different countries over time. They suggest that most American families are paying a steep price for high and rising income inequality.

Three Reasons Why You Should Keep Gmail far Away from Your Credit Card Information

Google’s plot for world domination now includes your credit cards.

Google wants your money. Or, more precisely, Google wants your bank account and credit card info.

At Quartz, Chris Mims reports that Google appears to be accelerating its roll-out of a service that will allow gmail users to send money via email to whomever they want as easily as sending an attachment. Sounds great — but wait, there’s more!

Here’s what’s brilliant about offering the “send money” feature: Google almost certainly doesn’t care whether you use it to send money. What it cares about is getting you to sign up to Google Wallet and capture your bank account and credit-card information.

Even though it was a major exporter of crude oil and held some of the world’s largest natural gas reserves, Iran made a compelling case over half-a-century ago that it needed, almost immediately, to produce an additional 20,000 megawatts of electricity by constructing 23 nuclear power plants.

At the same time, Iran’s government made the case that the country needed to acquire the capacity to enrich uranium in order to fabricate the reactor fuel for such an ambitious program.

Western governments eagerly endorsed these arguments, praising Iran’s then Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi’s ambition to rapidly modernize Iran while overlooking the reality that he was presiding over a ruthless dictatorship and diverting much needed capital to purchase massive amounts of weapons from the US and other Western countries.

Margarita Atanasov will be forced to leave Russia within a fortnight.

The source explained that the diplomatic gesture is a reprisal for the expulsion of a Russian assistant military attaché earlier this month, which was in itself justified as a counter-measure to an earlier forced recall of a Canadian official. “Russian officials have had their visa applications rejected for no reason,” explained the source (RT)

“The entire situation is being stoked by Canada’s destructive anti-Russian position over Ukraine.”

The City of the Dead: The ghostly Chinese town filled with luxury properties that nobody lives in

Chinese ghost city By Travelmail Reporter

Locals call it ‘The City of the Dead’, a ghostly urban landscape with no residents to fill it.

More than 100 villas stand empty after they were built six years ago for locals in the Chinese city of Beihai, in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

They were built to cater to a new rising class of wealthy people who, it was hoped, would invest in real estate and snap up the properties, many of which are priced at over three million yuan (£285,900).

Chinese citizens are not allowed to invest overseas, so there has been a real boom in real estate as people look for safe havens for their wealth.

In a bid to cater to those wanting to invest in property, entire cities have been built complete with skyscrapers, shopping malls, highways and parks. But they are often devoid of residents and turn into soulless ‘dead…

GMO plants, GMO people, and cancer   By Jon Rappoport April 22, 2014

Originally posted on 2012: What's the 'real' truth?:

www.nomorefakenews.com  

There is an extraordinary parallel between what biotech corporations are doing with food plants, and what cancer researchers are trying to do with humans.

The comparison is not only instructive, it reveals what the future holds.

The war against cancer has painted a picture of hope: genetic solutions, genetic modifications.

This, despite the fact that there are no successful genetic treatments for any form of human cancer.

The focus on genes is a diversion from obvious causes of cancer in the environment: industrial chemicals, pollutants, pesticides, food additives, and even pharmaceuticals.

This futile gene-fix has a parallel in food crops: modify the genes of plants so they can grow despite drenching them with toxic pesticides. However, massive GMO crop failures and reduced nutritive value of such crops are two reasons why the gene model fails.

So it is with human cancer: “let’s modify the genes of people and…

Remember Bill Clinton’s famous line in his 1992 presidential debate with then-President G.W. Bush when Clinton said, “It’s the economy, stupid!”

The Medvedev government in Russia recently announced it would ban import and commercialization of genetically modified organisms (GMO) in the Russian Federation. That is commendable to be sure, but new evidence suggests that the health and safety dangers of the GMO assault on our food quality involve the paired agrichemicals that are used in almost all GMO seeds today, namely Monsanto Roundup and other glysophate-based weed killers.

Russia will not start certifying GM seeds for at least three more years due to delays in creating the necessary infrastructure, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told MPs. Earlier Russia had expected to allow planting such seeds from June.

The delay comes amid the general GMO-skeptic mood that the Russian government adopted recently. The country may even ban the cultivation and import of genetically modified foodstuffs.

Last year, the government allowed the planting of GM seeds starting July 2014 as part of Russia’s accession to the World Trade Organization. Now the deadline will have to change, Medvedev told Russian MPs.

Spain’s ‘Robin Hood’ Funded Anti-Capitalist Movement with Bank Swindle

In recent interviews from the lam, Enric Duran predicts ‘transformation of the state and capitalism as we know it today’

by Lauren McCauley, staff writer

Though living on the lam after swindling almost half a million euros from banks across Spain, Enric Duran—the notorious “Robin Hood of Spain”—said he is still dedicated to fighting capitalism.

In an exclusive Skype interview from an undisclosed location, the anti-capitalist activist from Catalan told the Guardian that he was “proud” of his action, saying that the money that he farmed out to social causes working against capitalism “generated a movement.”

Between 2006 and 2008, Duran took out 68 commercial and personal loans amounting to €492,000 (or roughly $678,00) from 39 banks in Spain. Never intending to repay the loans, Duran instead used the money to help fund those speaking out against capitalism. According to the Guardian, Duran’s protest “pushed the anti-capitalist movement into…

KIEV, Ukraine—U.S. Vice President Joe Biden warned Russia to pull back its forces along the Ukrainian border and publicly demand pro-Russian forces release occupied government buildings in the east, or he said Moscow will face additional economic sanctions in the coming days.

Mr. Biden, in remarks Tuesday after meeting with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, said the U.S. won’t allow the agreement reached Thursday in Geneva to reduce tensions in eastern Ukraine to become “an open-ended process.”
