- India, the world’s largest democracy, run at present by a proto-fascist and majoritarian force with a 30-month record of trampling on all manner and fashion of fundamental freedoms.Since November 8, the entire country—especially its farmers, workers, self-employed and small businesses—have been reeling as the result of an ill-thought-of move to de-monetize the Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 rupee notes.
With much of national and international media attention tracking the implications of this move, the all-out, sinister attempts to trample the land rights of India’s tribal population—its indigenous peoples and farmers—have been overshadowed.

- The overview below began as a letter to a major international newspaper often publishing my work. But the US-orchestrated overthrow of elected government across Latin America is unspeakable in the corporate media. No communication is published that connects the dot of the US- led money-party destroying any and all democratic alternatives. This is how the life-devouring system prevails as it depredates the world, now the liberated social states of America Sud whose elections cannot be controlled.
All societies are in fact being re-set to private financial predation of public wealth, the ultimate feeding trough no corporate state or media ever reports and no national election has supported. Concealing the great public dispossession behind big lies is the moral of the story across oceans.
Public life liquidated to ensure money gains to the rich is the inner truth of all the covert coups.

- Israeli economist, Ilan Goldfein, has been appointed the president of the Central Bank of Brazil in the wake of the suspension of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, in relation to the corruption charges being levelled at many government ministers.
“What’s happening in Brazil today is a coup d’etat. A coup sponsored by both internal and external force,” wrote Manuel Barcia, a professor of Latin American History at the University of Leeds, in The Independent.
“White, privileged, wealthy, male Brazilians have led the impeachment charges,” he wrote, adding, “Unlike President Rousseff, many of those who have attempted to impeach her or replace her in this new corporate and corrupt government are being investigated for charges including conspiracy, money-laundering, forging documents, and misappropriating public funds.”

- The Empire of Chaos(The US) has won a major victory in Brazil destroying a democracy in order to bring Brazil back under control. Dilma Rousseff has been impeached on trumped up charges ignoring the wishes of the 54 Million Brazilians who voted for her and replacing her with the traitor Michel Temer.
Temer gives a whole new meaning to the idea of rule by the 1% because Temer has a 1% approval rating. Rousseff has been suspended from office for 180 days while the impeachment process continues. Brazil has joined the list of successful recent coups in Honduras, and Paraguay. Like the people of Argentina the people of Brazil are about to be reminded of what it means to be ruled by neo-liberal Hyenas.

-In order to understand what is really going on around the globe in terms of the collapsing economy, we must set aside false mainstream versions of reality. When it comes to the EU and its current fiscal turmoil, it is very important to, in some respects, ignore Greece entirely. That’s right; forget about all the supposed drama surrounding Greek debt obligations. Will they find a way to pay creditors? Will they default? Will they make a deal with Russia and the BRICS? Will there be last-minute concessions to save the system? It doesn’t matter. It’s all a soap opera, an elaborate Kabuki theater run by international financiers and globalists.
It is most important to remember the fundamentals. Greece will default on its debts. Period. There is no way around it. Maybe Greece makes a deal today, maybe it makes a deal tomorrow; but eventually, the country’s ability to stretch out its resources in order to meet its exponential liabilities will end. It is inevitable, and no last-minute “deal” is going to change the math at the core of it all.
Why are so many economists so worried about a little country like Greece?

- I would like to begin by speaking about the people of Gaza. Their suffering is not an abstraction to me. I was the Middle East bureau chief for The New York Times. I spent seven years in the region. I speak Arabic. And for much of that time I was in Gaza, including when Israeli fighter jets and soldiers were attacking it.
I have stood over the bodies, including the bodies of children, left behind by Israeli airstrikes and assaults. I have watched mothers and fathers cradle their dead and bloodied boys and girls in their arms, convulsed by an indescribable grief, shrieking in pitiful cries to an indifferent universe.
And in this charnel house, this open-air prison where 1.8 million people, nearly half of them children, live trapped in an Israeli ghetto, I have witnessed the crimes of occupation—the food shortage, the stifling overcrowding, the contaminated water, the lack of health services, the crippling poverty, the endemic unemployment, the fear and the despair. As I have witnessed this mass of human suffering I have heard from the power elites in Jerusalem and Washington the lies told to justify state terror.

- How land grabs in Africa could herald a new dystopian age of hunger.
Africa is up for sale by the acre to the highest bidder. But how can rice exports from Ethiopia to Saudi Arabia be justified?
Land grabs have grabbed global attention. It’s on the agenda at the World Economic Forum this week, and as the trend for large land acquisitions accelerates, it has moved from being primarily a story about Middle Eastern petrodollars pouring into Africa, to a much more widely spread phenomenon affecting many parts of south-east Asia, such as the Phillipines, as well as Latin America.
In Cambodia, 15% of land has been signed over to private companies since 2005, a third of which are foreign. A new set of research studies from the International Land Coalition find the competition for land increasingly global and unequal.
Many of the deals are shrouded in secrecy, so the scale of what is happening is not clear, nor is it clear who is benefiting from these deals.

- Ten mega corporations control the output of almost everything you buy; from household products to pet food to jeans.
According to this chart via Reddit, called "The Illusion of Choice," these corporations create a chain that begins at one of 10 super companies. You've heard of the biggest names, but it's amazing to see what these giants own.
- The West is intent on destroying not only Syria, but also Iran, and by doing so further encircling both Russia and China. The game is as old as human civilization itself - empire.
Syria's problem is in fact the establishment of a global hegemonic power with uncontested institutions reaching across the entire surface of the planet, exploiting its people and resources.
While Syria must address the proxies sent on behalf of this global hegemony, it and the rest of free humanity, must ultimately address the globalist "international institutions" themselves.
- The primary "news" narrative may be the failure of the euro, but the master narrative is much, much bigger: centralization has failed.
The failure of Europe's "ultimate centralization project" is but a symptom of a global failure of centralization.
- So why is the West holding Syria to standards they themselves have demonstratively rejected? It goes beyond hypocrisy - it is a declaration to the world that the "international rule of law" exists solely as a means to justify the expansion of the West's global hegemony. It is naked military conquest hiding behind the fig leaf of "humanitarian concerns." Syria, as does any sovereign nation or individual on Earth, has the right to defend itself and restore order within its realm.
