De Kirchner: It’s Time to End the Myth of the Free Market

Voltaire, 5 March 2011.
In announcing her government’s National Strategic Industrialization Plan—2020, on February 24, Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner firmly defended her country’s right to industrialize, and to protect both that industry, and the workers who contribute to its advancement.
Outlining ambitious goals for the year 2020—achieving an average 5% annual growth rate, doubling annual industrial exports to $136 billion, increasing the industrial portion of GDP to 80%, among others—Fernandez de Kirchner debunked the notion that Argentina owed any respect to the free market. Since 2003, she reported, five million …

By Walter Armbrust.
On February 15th at 9:45 AM a comment was posted on the wall of the Kullina Khalid Sa’id Facebook page, administered by the now very famous Wael Ghoneim, referring to a news item reporting that European governments were under pressure to freeze bank accounts of recently deposed members of the Mubarak regime. The comment said: “Excellent news … we do not want to take revenge on anyone … it is the right of all of us to hold to account any person who has wronged this nation. By …

The Noble American Humanitarian, from Iraq to Libya

Hat tip to ‘Off the freakin’ track’ for translating and forwarding this.
Here’s a few short words (paraphrased) from Belgian writer Michel Collon.

NATO stands ready to intervene in Libya. Thus, those who bomb civilians in Afghanistan, want to protect them in Libya. Those who would not lift a finger when Israel massacred Gaza have suddenly developed an immense love for the Arabs!
As Henry Kissinger once confessed: “The main powers have no principles, only interests.”
Even if we wish for the suffering of Libyans to stop, they will suffer no less under an …

The Face of Thatcherism: Pensioners Die Whilst British Gas Reaps Record Profits from Price Hikes

Thursday 24 February 2011by Louise Nousratpour.
British Gas was accused of engaging in “grotesque” profiteering while pensioners died from the winter cold after it revealed annual profits of £742 million today – just months after hiking its prices by 7 per cent.
British Gas’s 24 per cent increase in shareholder profits will anger millions of consumers who saw the average dual-fuel bill increase from £1,157 to £1,239 last December.
The 7 per cent rise came as customers were forced to reach for the thermostat when the coldest weather in 100 years …

When Qaddafi’s son, Saif al-Islam, accused foreigners and opposition groups of fomenting unrest within Libya, it appears no truer words have been spoken. It is not surprising BBC and the rest of the corporate owned media went through extensive measures to discredit his speech.
Unbelievable revelations have been discovered regarding the unrest in Libya. The leader of Libya’s opposition group organizing the protests both …

‘Democracy Promotion’: America’s Regime Change Formula

Published: 18 November, 2010, 01:15
Edited: 23 November, 2010, 01:32

Washington’s formula for regime change underwent a makover in the 1980s. In a bid to ensure US political and economic interests were safeguarded, CIA backed coup d’états ousted democratically elected leaders from Iran to Chile.

Cameron’s ‘Big Society’ Unmasked – Neoliberal Evisceration of UK Public Services

Monday 21 February 2011by Louise Nousratpour, Equalities Reporter.
David Cameron let the Tory cat out of the bag today when he revealed that privatising Britain’s entire public sector was at the heart of his Big Society agenda.
In an article for the right-wing Daily Telegraph Mr Cameron said he wanted to end the “state monopoly” on public services by removing all barriers to private companies taking over schools, hospitals, transport and all other council services.
But trade unions and public-sector campaigners warned the Prime Minister that he would have a “bare-knuckle …

Economic Terrorism: Egypt in the Crosshairs

By the Editor.
The UK Independent is today reporting that globalist David Cameron is flying to Egypt for ‘talks’.
Free-market fundamentalist Cameron takes every opportunity to wax lyrical about how we must ‘open markets’ and deregulate economies in order to prosper. Further, in his recent speech to the Kuwaiti national assembly he stressed the need for economic reform in the Middle East:
“In the end, 21st century economies require open societies. I am convinced that the best guarantor of prosperity and stability is for economic and political progress to go in …

WikiLeaks: A Very Short Coincidence Theory

By Maidhc Ó Cathail / December 20th, 2010
It is surely just a coincidence that the law firm – Finers Stephens Innocent – which represents Julian Assange and set up the Julian Assange Defense Fund is also legal adviser to the Rothschild Waddesdon Trust; that the partially Rothschild-owned Economist gave Assange its 2008 Freedom of Expression Award; that Lord Rothschild is deputy chairman of BSkyB, whose warmongering chairman, Rupert Murdoch, and his propagandist father were lauded as fearless advocates of the truth by the WikiLeaks founder in an op-ed in the Murdoch-owned The Australian; that the only world …

Egypt Today, Thailand Tomorrow

Bowring Treaty Redux
By Tony Cartalucci.
Egypt is still reeling in the midst of a foreign-backed color revolution. The protests led by International Crisis Group trustee Mohamed ElBaradei and his “National Front for Change,” have been assembling their forces and building up an opposition for over a year. ElBaradei’s April 6 Movement had actually been in the US in 2008 to attend the US State Department and corporate sponsored Alliance for Youth Movements inaugural summit, before beginning their campaign and protests for ElBaradei. There are also the independent labor unions, organized and …
