Netanyahu Undermines the President, Ignores the US Constitution and Urges US Into War

House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi was clearly furious in the wake of yesterday’s speech by Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Bibi). The Washington Post reported:

In a statement, Pelosi said she was “near tears” throughout the speech, “saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States . . . and saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to preventing nuclear proliferation.”

Netanyahu’s speech was made before a special session of Congress on Tuesday. Remember that Netanyahu violated protocol by accepting a prearranged invitation from House Speaker John Boehner (normally the Senate jointly issues such an invite – and the president is consulted) to address the session – which many Democrats refused to attend.   Continue reading

Opposition coalition plans to end racially divisive politics, improve living standards

Opposition coalition plans to end racially divisive politics, improve living standards

Wednesday, 04 March 2015 14:16 – Written by   – CND

The opposition coalition on Wednesday March 4th officially launched its campaign for the May 11, 2015 general elections, pledging to end racially divisive politics for the first time since the 1950s and root out corruption, crime and bad governance.

Adressing a packed audience at the Pegasus Hotel, Prime Ministerial candidate Moses Nagamootoo said that after the 60 years Guyana was making another giant step towards national reconciliation, multi-ethnic and multi-party rule.

“It will be, as it has been, a bumpy road to the Promised Land. But we will not be daunted. We will not be intimidated.  We shall defeat the monster of racism.

Nagamootoo, who resigned from the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) after more than 40 years and joined the Alliance For Change (AFC) as its Vice Chairman, said the restoration of electoral democracy in 1992 started a hopeful process but did not bring healing.  He hopes that the coalition between the AFC and David Granger’s A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) will bring an end to the new cycle of autocratic, one-party rule, corruption and complicity in criminal enterprises.   Continue reading

19F – The Night Venezuela Finally Imploded

Tonight, Venezuela is seeing a spasm of violence that’s unlike anything the country has experienced since 1989. Information is fragmented, since an almost complete media black-out is in place, but you don’t need the media to hear your neighbor’s screams.

Caracas, Valencia, Merida and San Cristobal in particular have become virtual war zones: National Guard units and National Police have been shooting tear gas canisters and buckshot sometimes directly at protesters, sometimes into residential buildings and, raiding any place they think student protesters may be hiding. Alongside them, the government backed colectivos (basically paramilitary gangs on motorbikes, a tropical basij) shoot at people with live ammo.

But of course, this is no war zone: in a war zone you have two sides shooting at each other. Tonight one side is doing all the shooting, the other side is doing all the being shot at.

Keeping Track of the Earth’s Atmospheric CO2

“If humanity wishes to preserve a planet similar to that on which civilization developed and to which life on Earth is adapted, paleoclimate evidence and ongoing climate change suggest that CO2 will need to be reduced … to at most 350 ppm.”

Brian Lara

In an exclusive interview with the Trinidad Guardian, Lara, who is currently doing television commentary at the World Cup in Australia/New Zealand, said he is becoming increasingly concerned at the deficiencies in the management of the sport here in the Caribbean, and he would have no hesitation in accepting a nomination and contesting the top post as president of the WICB.

Lara said he is frightened by the breakdown of an institution that has been mostly responsible for giving him the opportunity to become the person he is today.   Continue reading

The struggle of Venezuela against ‘a common enemy’ – John Pilger interview

The struggle of Venezuela against ‘a common enemy’

17 February 2015 – John Pilger interview

With a “slow motion coup” under way in Venezuela, John Pilger is interviewed for Telesur, the Latin American TV network, by Mike Albert.


Albert: Why would the United States want Venezuela’s government overthrown?

Pilger: There are straightforward principles and dynamics at work here. Washington wants to get rid of the Venezuelan government because it is independent of US designs for the region and because Venezuela has the greatest proven oil reserves in the world and uses its oil revenue to improve the quality of ordinary lives. Venezuela remains a source of inspiration for social reform in a continent ravaged by an historically rapacious US.   Continue reading
