OpEdNews Article: Article: Russia In The Cross Hairs

OpEdNews Article: Article: Russia In The Cross Hairs | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russian journalists, those independent of American bribes, think that facts matter in the disputes about Russian actions. They think that the assaults on civilians by the American supported Ukrainian Nazis is a fact. But, of course no such fact exists in the Western media. In the Western media the Russians, and only the Russians, are responsible for violence in Ukraine.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

In other words, the "free speech" that Washington and its EU, Canadian, and Australian puppet states tout means: free speech for Washington's propaganda and lies, but not for any truth. Truth is terrorism, because truth is the major threat to Washington.

Washington would prefer to avoid the embarrassment of actually shutting down RT as its UK vassal did to Press TV. Washington simply wants to shut up RT. Lark's message to RT is: self-censure.

OpEdNews Quicklink: Researcher explores how the universe creates reason, morality | Global politics | Scoop.it
Recent developments in science are beginning to suggest that the universe naturally produces complexity. The emergence of life in general and perhaps even rational life may be extremely common. Scientists are increasingly beginning to discuss how the basic structure of the universe seems to favor the creation of complexity: disordered energy states produce atoms and molecules, which combine to form suns and associated planets, on which life evolves. Life then seems to exhibit its own pattern of

OpEdNews Article: Article: The Invisible Man: Jeffrey Sterling, CIA Whistleblower | Global politics | Scoop.it
Two weeks ago, Jeffrey Sterling went to trial at last. He was at the defense table during seven days of proceedings that included very dubious testimony from 23 present and former CIA employees as well as the likes of Condoleezza Rice. Jeffrey Sterling is facing a very long prison sentence. As a whistleblower, he has done a lot for us. He should be invisible no more.

Some Contributions Of Islamic Culture By John Scales Avery

Enrique Ferro's insight:

During the initial stages of the conquest, the Islamic religion inspired a fanaticism in its followers which was often hostile to learning. However, this initial fanaticism quickly changed to an appreciation of the ancient cultures of the conquered territories; and during the middle ages, the Islamic world reached a very high level of culture and civilization.

OpEdNews Quicklink: Ancient star system reveals Earth-sized planets forming near start of universe | Global politics | Scoop.it
A Sun-like star with orbiting planets, dating back to the dawn of the Galaxy, has been discovered by a team of astronomers. At 11.2 billion years old it is the oldest star with earth-sized planets ever found and proves that such planets have formed throughout the history of the Universe. The star, named Kepler-444, hosts five planets smaller than Earth, with sizes varying between those of Mercury and Venus.

The Global Siginificance Of Greek Elections In 2015 By Jon V Kofas

The Global Siginificance Of Greek Elections In 2015 By Jon V Kofas | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

These are reminders that Greece has no leverage and that the patron-client integration model, austerity and neo-liberalism will remain exactly as the G-7 and financial markets dictate. By contrast, the new prime minister Alexis Tsipras visited the memorial site of Nazi war-crime victims, symbolically reminding Germany that it owes billions in war reparations to Greece, while reminding the West about the absence of justice when it comes to relations between core countries and periphery within the EU

Greece Begins The Great Pivot Toward Russia | Zero Hedge

Greece Begins The Great Pivot Toward Russia | Zero Hedge | Global politics | Scoop.it
"Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias is due in Brussels on Thursday to discuss possible additional sanctions on Russia over the conflict in Ukraine. Before the cabinet even meets for the first time tomorrow, the Greek government said that it disagreed with an EU statement in which President Donald Tusk raised the prospect of “further restrictive measures” on Russia." The punchline: In recent months, Kotzias wrote on Twitter that sanctions against Russia weren’t in Greece’s interests. He said in a blog that a new foreign policy for Greece should be focused on stopping the ongoing transformation of the EU “into an idiosyncratic empire, under the rule of Germany.” And when it comes to the natural adversary of any German imperial ambitions in recent history, Europe has been able to produce only one answer...
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Europe, for one, will be most displeased that Greece has decided to put its people first in the chain of priority over offshore bidders of Greek assets. Most displeased, especially since the liquidation sale of Greece is part of the Greek bailout agreement: an agreement which as the Troika has repeatedly stated, is not up for renegotiation.
