    Independent Sentinel ^ | June 30, 2015 | S. Noble
    A very high profile anti-Capitalist from Canada named Naomi Klein has been invited by Pope Francis to join forces with Climate Change activist and senior aide to the Pope, Cardinal Peter Turkson. Together they will lead a prominent conference on the environment with churchmen, scientists, and activists. The conference will exclude climate change doubters and moderates. The Pope had walked back some of his comments on the economy which were anti-Capitalist but Klein says he got it right the first time – we need to overturn Capitalism. Klein spoke at Occupy Wall Street, is, according to the guardian, is a...

    Al Jazeera English ^ | February 8, 2020
    Turkey has sent reinforcements to its forces in the Idlib province of Syria, the last rebel-held region in the country. The armoured vehicles and tanks were headed for the observation posts that Turkey has already set up in the province, following an advance by Syrian government forces that could pave the way for them to mount an offensive on the provincial capital. But as Al Jazeera's Sinem Koseoglu reports, Turkey is determined to stop that.

    What else would you expect from the man who accused Navy Seal Chris Kyle of being a "racist," and described his work as a sniper as "killing sprees?" The same man who suggested that a Palestinian stabber in Jerusalem was unarmed when shot by police despite footage clearly showing a knife in his hand? Joy Reid had the man in question, Ayman Mohyeldin, formerly of Al Jazeera, now co-host host of the Morning Joe lead-in show, on her MSNBC show today to comment on the Trump administration's proposed Israeli/Palestinian peace plan. Reid was highly skeptical/critical of the plan. When a...
  • Former Trump campaign advisor Stephen Moore: ‘We knew we weren’t going to get 5% growth’

    President Donald Trump is an “exaggerator” who knew his policies wouldn’t generate the 5% growth he had promised while campaigning, according to Stephen Moore, who served as a campaign advisor to Trump and was a prospective Fed nominee. In an interview with Mehdi Hasan, columnist at The Intercept, Moore stopped just short of calling the president a liar, but did say Trump hurts himself with falsehoods. “He should stop saying things that are untrue,” Moore says in a clip from Al Jazeera English television show that Hasan provided on his Twitter feed. “I think Trump is an exaggerator, and I...

Italian state television has broadcast a documentary about her life and work, in recognition of what would have been her 90th birthday. All of her books are being republished in a collected-works uniform format. The leading Italian politician, Matteo Salvini, repeatedly refers to her in glowing terms. For many Italians, she is both prophetess and patron saint; the woman...

    Money looking for a route out of Russia and into the European Union appears to have found a crack in the banking system. Tens of billions of dollars have been laundered through mostly Baltic nations, swamping the outposts of Nordic banks. It's been an ongoing headache for European authorities and regulators. Now, a different issue entirely has raised the anxiety levels in European capitals. Russia plans to move the headquarters of its development bank to Hungary. All told European authorities don't know the extent of the money-laundering problem. But a picture is emerging. Around one trillion dollars has been moved...

    It's amazing how similar middle-class and well-positioned African Americans are to white elites in their perspectives on US politics. They continue to play in the sandbox of respectability politics and civility, as if only since the election of Donald Trump as president has racial and socioeconomic progress been in jeopardy. Take Washington Post columnist Colbert I King's reaction to US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement last month. The "honor - or from, my point of view, blame" for strengthening the right-wing hold on the Supreme Court

    Al Jazeera is a propaganda machine created by a guy who's literally called Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa bin Hamad bin Abdullah bin Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani. They dupe low IQ underachievers into churning out left-wing propaganda that makes everyone but Muslims look racist and evil and bad. It’s amazing how eager the alt-left is to take their checks. We are so easy to manipulate...

    For non-Chinese journalists, in Africa and elsewhere, working for Chinese state-run media offers generous remuneration and new opportunities. When CCTV launched its Washington headquarters in 2012, no fewer than five former or current BBC correspondents based in Latin America joined the broadcaster. One of them, Daniel Schweimler, who is now at al-Jazeera, said his experience there was fun and relatively trouble-free, though he didn’t think many people actually saw his stories. But foreign journalists working at Xinhua, the state-run news agency, see their stories reaching much larger audiences. Government subsidies cover around 40% of Xinhua’s costs, and it generates income...

    Thursday, from Al Jazeera: “Yemen ‘on Brink of New Cholera Epidemic,’ Charity Warns.” The piece details how recent developments in the Yemeni civil war — specifically, the possible siege of the port city of Hodeidah — may cause a surge in cholera cases. There were over a million reported cases of cholera between the fall of 2016 and spring of 2018, the largest documented outbreak in modern times. The rate of infection had slowed, but observers now fear resurgence. Since the conflict began, medical services have been devastated across the war-torn country, and children in particular have been affected, with...

I’ve tried everything to get that changed.” Federal prosecutors disclosed the interview transcript in a court...

    The hidden battle in Syria – the one that rarely appears on our television screens – has been raging for years between Israel and a coalition comprising the Syrian government, Iran and the Lebanese militia Hezbollah. Watching over the proceedings without directly intervening has been Russia, although that might be about to change. The prize is control over Syrian territory but the battlefield is Syria’s skies.

    Congress is pushing forward with an effort to spark a federal investigation into the Al Jazeera, the Qatari-funded propaganda network that recently conducted a secret, months-long spy operation on American Jews in Washington, D.C., according to lawmakers and sources familiar with the effort. A bipartisan team of lawmakers including Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and leading House members such as Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, petitioned the Department of Justice to open an investigation into Al Jazeera to determine if it should have to register as a foreign-controlled agent under U.S. law....

    Trump is a particularly ugly wart erupting from the underlying disease, the corporatisation of America and the world writes Beinhart [Reuters] In his first year in office, the only serious bill he passed was the tax cuts. Yes, Trump has also done other damage during his first year in the White House, primarily with his judicial appointments. But credit, or demerits, for that really go to Mitch McConnell, who blocked the Obama administration's appointments so that there were seats open if a Republican was elected. They look to be terrible judges, but who's to say if rabid right-wing judges with...

    It's the knowing smirk that rankles most. When Donald Trump flashes his grating, self-satisfied grin, he's signalling to you and me that he's untouchable, beyond the reach of special counsel, Robert Mueller, and the comical remnants of the "rule of law". It's his easy, quick way of quashing the frayed spirits and hopes of those of us aching for his belated comeuppance and eviction from the White House. But Trump knows he's not going anywhere, anytime soon. So, he basks in his immunity and smiles. It's his tiny middle finger to anyone who believes that Mueller, the FBI or Congress...
