Massive Embezzlement Scandal Threatens Juan Guaido’s Political Future

Massive Embezzlement Scandal Threatens Juan Guaido’s Political Future

The political party of Juan Guaido — Voluntad Popular (Popular Will) — was never all that popular to begin with. The sixth largest political party in Venezuela, Popular Will is heavily financed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Now, a recently exposed embezzlement scandal in Colombia risks to further alienate the party from the Venezuelan people. What was supposed to be Guaido’s watershed moment has instead turned out to be a public-relations failure far worse than his quickly quelled attempted military coup, which MintPress News reported caused even the...

Genocide In Yemen: Media Complicit In US-Saudi War Crimes

Genocide In Yemen: Media Complicit In US-Saudi War Crimes

MINNEAPOLIS — Yemen has been devastated by asymmetrical aerial bombardment by a Saudi-led coalition, and the war on Yemen, along with a Saudi-imposed blockade, is having disastrous impacts on food and water security. The United Nations reported in October that more than half of Yemen’s 28 million people are short of food. At least 1.5 million children are going hungry in the poorest country on the Arabian Peninsula, including 370,000 who are suffering from malnutrition so severe that it’s weakening their immune systems. And the Saudi-led attacks continue, striking Yemen’s hospitals, which...

Venezuela Will Increase 'Anti-Imperialist Defense' Against Threats from the US: Maduro

Venezuela Will Increase 'Anti-Imperialist Defense' Against Threats from the US: Maduro

On Thursday Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro highlited the necessity of preparing against a possible military action toward Venezuela in order to defend the country’s sovereignty, speaking as Latin American military leaders meet with U.S. Southern Command in Lima, Peru, following threats of a “military option” to be considered against Venezuela by U.S. President Donald Trump. The Bolivarian Government has the “obligation to defend the nation’s sovereignty,” Maduro said. He added that while he does not feel an attack would come in the form of a “classic military invasion,” it is possible...

Bolton Alleges Iran Maritime Sabotage But Evidence Points Elsewhere

Bolton Alleges Iran Maritime Sabotage But Evidence Points Elsewhere

ABU DHABI, U.A.E. — On Wednesday, National Security Advisor John Bolton told a group of reporters in Abu Dhabi that “naval mines almost certainly from Iran” had been used to conduct the alleged “sabotage” attack on four commercial vessels off the coast of the United Arab Emirates’ port of Fujairah earlier this month. “There is no doubt in anybody’s mind in Washington who is responsible for this and I think it’s important that the leadership in Iran know that we know,” Bolton continued, providing no evidence for his claim. Bolton is currently in Abu Dhabi ahead of an “emergency” summit...

Chicago’s Terrible Plan To Force School Children Into The Military

Chicago’s Terrible Plan To Force School Children Into The Military

(Opinion) — Chicago, Illinois, has a chronic inflated state problem disguised as a schooling problem. In order to eradicate the symptom, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has decided to attack those who suffer from it and not the actual root of the problem — adopting a classic “more of the same” approach. A plan approved in May is set to take effect soon, forcing high school seniors to either be enlisted in the military, have a job, be enrolled in a gap-year program, or have a college acceptance letter before the Chicago public schooling system will give them their diploma. The obvious consequences of...

Coca-Cola, Nestle To Privatize World’s Second Largest Aquifer in Brazil

Coca-Cola, Nestle To Privatize World’s Second Largest Aquifer in Brazil

A concerted push is underway in South America that could see one of the world’s largest reserves of fresh water soon fall into the hands of transnational corporations such as Coca-Cola and Nestle. According to reports, talks to privatize the Guarani Aquifer – a vast subterranean water reserve lying beneath Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay – have already reached an advanced stage. The deal would grant a consortium of U.S. and Europe-based conglomerates exclusive rights to the aquifer that would last over 100 years. Named after the Guarani indigenous people, the Guarani Aquifer is...

The Untold Story of Christian Zionism's Rise to Power in the United States

The Untold Story of Christian Zionism's Rise to Power in the United States

Well before Theodore Herzl founded political Zionism and published The Jewish State, Christian Zionists in the United States and England were already seeking to direct and influence the foreign policy of both nations in service to a religious obsession end times prophecy. The largest pro-Israel organization in the United States is not composed of Jews, but of Christian evangelicals, with a total membership of 7 million, more than 2 million more members than the entirety of the American Jewish community. Members of this organization, Christians United for Israel (CUFI), met in Washington...

Fear the “Bern?” Bernie Sanders is Too Left for the Democratic Party

Fear the “Bern?” Bernie Sanders is Too Left for the Democratic Party

Bernie Sanders’ decision to run in the 2020 presidential election has once again heightened the anxieties of the corporate Democrats that control the party. The corporate Democrats have cleverly coded their criticism of Bernie Sanders to hide their true intentions. Bernie is “too old,” “too white,” “too male,” and a host of other characterizations. Of course, none of these criticisms apply to Joe Biden. Biden is just as old, white, and male as Bernie Sanders. The fear of Bernie Sanders that all corporate Democrats share is thus political in character. Sanders is (still) too far to the...

Untreated Sewage Could Flood Gaza As Crippling Power Outages Worsen

Untreated Sewage Could Flood Gaza As Crippling Power Outages Worsen

GAZA — Due to the myriad of highly publicized conflicts in the Middle East – from Qatar’s current diplomatic crisis to the battle against Daesh (ISIS) in Syria and Iraq – many other crises in the region have slipped under the international radar. One such crisis has been taking place in Palestine’s Gaza Strip for years, entering a new phase in mid-April when Palestine’s only functioning power plant ran out of fuel. The plant’s closure has meant that Gaza – home to approximately 2 million people and the largest open-air prison in the world– must rely on electricity supplied by Israel and...
