U.S. Police State

Why US Police Are Out of Control
August 20, 2015Exclusive: U.S. police forces are so out of control there’s not even a reliable database on how many times police officers shoot citizens. So, beyond racism and fear of guns, the problem includes fragmentation in law enforcement and gaps in training among the 18,000 police agencies in the 50 states, notes Daniel Lazare.
America is clearly an outlier when it comes to police brutality. According to The Guardian’s highly useful “Counted” website, U.S. police kill more people in a typical day than police in England and Wales kill in an entire year. Where police in Stockton, California, killed three people in the first five months of 2015, police in Iceland, which has roughly the same population, have killed just one person since the modern Icelandic republic was founded in 1944. Where the U.S. saw 97 police shootings in a single month (March 2015), Australia saw 94 over the course of two decades (1992 to 2011). And where police in Finland fir…

Israeli Ambassadors: The Farcical Face of Modern Apartheid

Israel sees the UN as hostile territory. How apt that it sends ambassadors committed to annexation, whose stock answer to criticism is the claim of 'anti-Semitism'.

By Vijay Prashad 

August 21, 2015 "Information Clearing House" -  Israel's government is not keen on the United Nations. A common sign in the illegal settlements reads, "UNwelcome".

Israel sees the UN as hostile territory. Its ambassadors behave on a war footing. Ron Prosor, the former ambassador, routinely attacked senior UN officials when he didn't agree with them, calling many "anti-Semites".

Israel has now sent a new ambassador to the UN. Danny Danon follows Prosor - both are brash and farcical. Danon is the envoy of the settlers, a fierce advocate of "Greater Israel". 
In a New York Times opinion piece in 2011, Danon wrote that the Israeli government "should annex the Jewish communities of the West Bank, o…

West Supports Saudi Fascism

Sign up for our FREE Daily Email Newsletter Why Is The West Reluctant to Cut Ties With Saudi Arabia? 

By George Galloway For Press TV.

Saudi warplanes have been bombing Yemen for twenty weeks without a UN approval. Saudi Arabia's war, which has claimed many lives, has the full support of the West, mostly from the US and Britain. On human rights in Saudi Arabia itself, calls are being made from around the globe for the Saudi regime to release a prominent writer from prison. Posted August 21, 2015

A book by Martin Ford

There’s good reason to believe that robots will replace more and more workers, especially those who perform routine tasks, in the coming years. According to one analysis, up to 47 percent of jobs in the United States now performed by humans will be performed by machines within two decades. In the past, this sort of job loss was attributed to “creative destruction” — the destruction of something old by something new, which economist Joseph Schumpeter considered “the essential fact about capitalism.” Continuous innovation sustained economic growth even as it destroyed older modes of production. Predictions of long-term joblessness went awry because innovation also transformed our wants and needs. When I was running Fortran programs using…

Zionist Nuclear Bomb

When a U.S. president demanded inspections of a nuclear facility in the Middle East (and failed)Middle East on July 27, 201546 Comments

In July 1963, President Kennedy demanded of the newly-elected Israeli Prime Minister that he allow U.S. inspections of the Israeli nuclear facility at Dimona to make sure that the plant was “devoted exclusively to peaceful purposes.” U.S. support for Israel would be “seriously jeopardized” if the U.S. could not get information on doings at the facility, Kennedy said. Kennedy stated his demands in a letter to Levi Eshkol dated July 5, 1963, less than ten days after Eshkol became prime minister of Israel. The document is in the Israel State Archive, and is online at the National Security Archive, in a section titled Israel and the Bomb.
