Haiti’s only legitimate government in over 200 years was under Jean-Bertrand Aristide (1991, 1994 - 1996, and 2001 - 2004) - twice ousted by US imperial arrogance, a true populist leader serving all Haitians equitably, dedicated to social justice.
In 2011, Washington rigged Haiti’s electoral process to install widely despised Duvalierist/anti-populist Michel (Sweet Mickey) Martelly as president. He governs extrajudicially - by decree since parliament was dissolved in January, in violation of Haiti’s constitution. Haiti hasn’t had elections in over four years. When held they’re farcical - rigged to assure US-approved candidates win. More on this below.

Whatever happens, Washington will win in Syria, because the United States has not one, but two different policies with regard to this country. Either there will be peace, and President Obama will be praised for having successfully negotiated with Iran ; or else the Syrian Arab Republic will be destroyed and occupied by NATO, and a few US generals and NATO will be praised for having brought an end to the bloodbath. Here, Thierry Meyssan reveals the underside of this double policy, in particular the plot that was hatched by the NATO Deputy Secretary General for Political Affairs. (Image: Gen. John R.

The application of the agreement reached between Washington and Teheran, on the 14th July, 2015, depends mainly on President Obama’s capacity to convince his fellow-citizens, and particularly the Congress of his own administration, to accept it. Here, however, he will be faced with two major obstacles.

The plant sits along the scenic Central Coast and is surrounded by fault lines — one of which runs as close as 2,000 feet to the nuclear reactors. Many fear that a single earthquake could cause a repeat of the 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan.
Welcome to America today. It is a land in which facts have been redefined as enemy propaganda, a land in which legally protected whistleblowers are redefined as “fifth columns” or foreign agents subject to extermination, a land in which America is immune from criticism and all crimes are blamed on those whom Washington intends to rule.

A tablespoon can kill. A 100-gram package of powdered caffeine is equivalent to 400 “tall” Starbucks coffees, or 3,000 cans of Coke.

Every time Israel embarks on a new round of wholesale slaughter in Gaza, polls show that more than 90% of Israelis support the butchery. For Israelis, mass-murdering children is a spectator sport. When the IDF starts dropping cluster bombs, white phosphorous, DIME munitions and other horrendous weapons on Gaza, crowds of Israelis pack the hilltops to barbecue meat, drink alcohol and cheer as they watch Palestinian children being blown to bits.
An Israeli publication has suggested that nuclear bombs should be launched at Iran and Germany—wiping out Tehran, Isfahan, Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Nuremberg, Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Dresden, and Dortmund. “Twenty to thirty bombs,” Jewish writer Ben-Eliyahu raves, “will get the job done.” Times of Israel. — Right-wing media outlet Israel National News published an opinion piece Tuesday calling on Israel to launch nuclear bombs at Iran and Germany, only days after the outlet came under fire for publishing a piece accusing a war widow of killing her husband over her pro-peace views.

"It’s time for President Obama to keep his 2007 promise to label GMOs. In his own words, Obama declared it was our ‘right to know’ what we are eating, and we agree. The petition comes at a crucial turning point in the fight for GMO labeling, as the notorious ‘DARK Act‘ that would make GMO labeling illegal has been approved by the House of Representatives and is moving towards the Senate. The fate of the legislation, officially known as the ‘Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act,’ could soon come down to Obama’s signature (or veto). In other words, it’s now more essential than ever that we bring Obama’s 2007 promise to the national spotlight. Otherwise, we could soon see the same President who promised GMO labeling sign off on a bill that would make it illegal.
