Why Fast Track Driven Partnerships, TPP, TTIP Etc., are Microcosms of the Corruption Suppressing the 99%. | Global politics | Scoop.it
In the last 5 years, the 200 most politically active companies in the US spent $5.8 billion influencing our government with lobbying and campaign contributions. Is it little wonder that the 605 corporate advisers are allowed access to the TPP text, while little transparency is extended to public and members of congress?
Among the most controversial chapters of TPP and TTIP relate to Investor-State-Dispute-Settlement (ISDS) mechanisms, encapsulating the corruption of our entire political system

Hillary Clinton's Lucrative Life of Crime

Hillary Clinton's Lucrative Life of Crime | Global politics | Scoop.it
Bill and Hillary Clinton "earned" -- can a mortal earn such stratospheric sums? -- "at least $30 million over the last 16 months, mainly from giving paid speeches to corporations, banks and other organizations," The New York Times reports. "They have now earned more than $125 million on the [lecture] circuit since leaving the White House in 2001."

This is an important issue. But the big story has little to with what actually matters.

Noam Chomsky: Why the Internet Hasn't Freed Our Minds--Propaganda Continues to Dominate | Global politics | Scoop.it
Three decades ago, Professor Noam Chomsky, who is seen by some as the most brilliant and courageous intellectual alive and by others as an anti-US conspiracy theorist, penned his powerful critique of the Western corporate media in his seminal book Manufacturing Consent, with co-author Edward S Herman. The book had a profound impact on my perception of the mainstream media in my teenage years, and was crucial in some ways to my decision to start Byline with my co-founder Daniel Tudor. By cutting

  Washington Protects Its Lies With More Lies:   Information Clearing House - ICH By Paul Craig Roberts

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Americans are gullible, and thought does not come easily to them, but if they try hard enough they must wonder why it would be necessary for the government to concoct a totally false account of the deed if Washington kills an alleged terrorist. Why not just give the true story? Why does the true story have to come out years later from anonymous sources leaked to Hersh?

NYT Scrapes the Bottom to Argue 'Democrats Pulled Too Far Left'

NYT Scrapes the Bottom to Argue 'Democrats Pulled Too Far Left' | Global politics | Scoop.it
"Have Democrats Pulled Too Far Left?" asks a New York Times op-ed (5/27/15). Because this question is always answered affirmatively by corporate media, you don't even have to note that the author, Peter Wehner, "served in the last three Republican administrations" to know that the answer is going to be yes.

Despite the predictable thesis, however, the column still manages to surprise with its degree of intellectual dishonesty.

The Universe is Morphing

The Universe is Morphing | Global politics | Scoop.it
Think of it as a low hum, a rumble too deep to notice without special equipment. It permeates everything-from the emptiest spot in space to the densest cores of planets. Unlike sound, which requires air or some other material to carry it, this hum travels on the structure of space-time itself. It is the tremble caused by gravitational radiation, left over from the first moments after the Big Seed. The ultimate sources were tiny fluctuations in the quantum processes that was the cosmos right afte

 Ukraine Labor Dares Operation Vulture :   Information Clearing House - ICH

Enrique Ferro's insight:

In labor’s favor is the fact that the IMF has violating its Articles of Agreement by lending for military purposes. As soon as its last loan was disbursed, Poroshenko announced that he was stepping up his war against the East. This brings the IMF loan close to being what legal theorists call an Odious Debt: debts to a junta taking power and looting the government’s Treasury and other assets in the public domain, leaving future governments to pay off what has been stolen.
