Western Media Justifies Israel Terror Attacks on Syria Exposing Propaganda Hypocrisy / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Danny_Schechter

An Israeli plane bombs a target in Syria. The news is passed along first to Fox News, (huh?) by someone in the Administration.. It happened on a Thursday, but we find out about it late on Friday. The New York Times assigns three reporter to cover the story that goes up on the website in the middle of the morning on Saturday.

Earlier that day, President Obama, speaking in Costa Rica, said there will be no US ground troops on the ground in Syria. Now, the Administration says it is considering “military options.”

Politicians and Religions Spreading the Virus called Fear - Video / Politics / Propaganda

By: Submissions

Very few people understand the programming of fear, and why it distorts our perceptions. While fear is a program used for our survival, fear also creates irrational beliefs that cause larger systems of fear like politics, religion and the media. "A Virus Called Fear" is a short film about the conditioning of fear, and what irrational fears can lead to.

Israel Terror Air Strikes On Syria, Desperate Attempts to Provoke War Against Iran / Politics / Middle East

By: Global_Research

Tony Cartalucci writes: Alleged airstrikes hope to expand conflict, undermine Syrian advances, and provoke Syria and Iran to give US justification for military intervention. 

Once again, Israel is “leaking” information about alleged airstrikes it claims it has conducted against Syria along the Lebanese-Syrian border.

The Myth of U.S. Economic Recovery, Social Crisis in America / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

US stock markets surged Friday to new record highs as Wall Street traders seized on a tepid jobs report to engage in a fresh orgy of speculation.

The official line promoted by the Obama administration is that the United States is in the midst of an accelerating economic recovery. For the corporate and financial elite that runs America, and the section of the upper-middle class that hangs on its coattails, a soaring stock market is indeed what defines economic health. For the vast majority of the population, however, life five years after the Wall Street crash of 2008 is dominated by the daily struggle to make ends meet.

Professors and Grade Inflation - ‘A’ is for Average / Politics / Education

By: Walter_Brasch

About 1.8 million students will graduate from college this year, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. At least one-third of them will graduate with honors. In some colleges, about half will be honor graduates.

It’s not that the current crop is that bright, it’s that honors is determined by grade point average. Because of runaway grade inflation, the average grade in college is now an “A.” About 43 percent of all college grades are “A”s, according to a recent study by Stuart Rojstaczer and Christopher Healy, and published in the prestigious Teachers College Record. About three-fourths of all grades are “A”s or “B”s.

Last night, six of us went out to dinner at one of the nicest restaurants in Salta. We ordered two bottles of good Laborum cabernet sauvignon. We had beefsteaks, dessert and coffee. The bill came to 1,058 Argentine pesos (about $200).

Was that a lot... or a little?

Al-Qaida Myth, the Gangland-style Execution of a Retired Bin Laden / Politics / War on Terror

By: LewRockwell

Two years ago this week, US special forces shot and killed Osama bin Laden, the world’s most wanted man.

American TV is filled with chest-thumping and flag-waving about how bin Laden was hunted down and executed. For most Americans, bin Laden was the acme of evil and author of the 9/11 attacks that killed 3,000 people. Good riddance.

Down With Plato and Rousseau, Up with Robert Nisbet / Politics / Social Issues

By: Gary_North

Is civil government the only true government? Does it alone possess legitimate sovereignty? Defenders of the modern state insist that this is the case, and that it should be the case.

Robert Nisbet, as a sociologist, looked to social organizations as the source of political tradition. He explained the rise of the modern state in terms of series of conflicts between the national civil government and other institutions inside its geographical territory. He saw the rise of the modern state in terms of the state's claims of sovereignty, a sovereignty which is it refused to share with other institutions. These other institutions had possessed limited sovereignty. He also explained the rise of classical Athens in terms of this insistence on state sovereignty. He explained the Roman Empire under Augustus and later emperors in terms of this quest for unitary state sovereignty: a war-state.

The US Fed's May Day Riot / Politics / Central Banks

By: Adrian_Ash

Oh the people's flag is deepest red, just like the government's budget...

AS MAY DAY protests go, the US central bank's looked pretty tame on Wednesday.

Athens' strikers burnt a giant picture of Angela Merkel dressed as Hitler. Students in Washington threw bags of urine at each other. Protesters in Madrid waved flags shouting that "Austerity ruins & kills", while Turkish police broke up an illegal demo with tear gas and water cannon.

By: Money_Morning

A Lost Battle : Wall Street Vs. The Real Economy / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

Europe's New Look Economic Austerity / Politics / Economic Austerity

By: Andrew_McKillop

WRONG WAY BET
Defended on French TV channel BFM in an evening marathon looking at Francois Hollande's first year of power, April 29, by his Economy minister and other "party heavyweights" with a lackluster crop of one-liners, viewers saw recent opinion polls asking if French voters would vote again for Hollande, if an election was held today.

Roughly 19% said they would, and 64% said they would vote for Sarkozy if he stood again. Street interviews with average persons, one after another, said they voted the wrong way in 2012.
