Donald Trump is nothing if not consistent. He has repeatedly made exaggerated or misleading or false claims about any number of nations and/or individuals. If his nonsense was confined to Stormy Daniels then it wouldn’t be such a problem. However, it now seems inevitable that the US and Israel will eventually find a way to […]
‘Chutzpah’ is a wonderful Yiddish word that means outrageous nerve, or unmitigated gall. This week’s Chutzpah Award goes to Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Standing in front of props of data files and cd’s, Netanyahu claimed Israel’s renowned Mossad spy agency had stolen a small mountain of secret Iranian nuclear data from a warehouse in […] […]
As Trump tries to escalate the tide of xenophobia that is sweeping across the US, a caravan of desperate migrants from Central America has arrived at the US-Mexican border seeking admission as refugees. Trump has mocked and belittled these terrified people. He has dismissed their hopes and dreams. He has also chosen to ignore the […]
In this edition of the Empire Files, we find Abby Martin exploring the truth behind the false claims by western media and governments regarding the government of Venezuela. It is clear that the current problems being experienced by the Venezuelan people have been created by the US and those forces within Venezuela in the employ […]

The horror is unspeakable. The slaughter of innocents in Manchester is only now beginning to become clearer. Children murdered by a fanatic. The people of England now sadly begin to better understand how life has been in Syria, and Yemen and Palestine. Those animals (and there will be more than one) responsible for the Manchester […]
The startling thing about what is covered in the following article from Vocativ, is the resemblance to pre-World War 2 Germany. At that time the Jews were made into scapegoats for the economic hardship suffered by the German people. An angry and disillusioned population need to vent their anger somewhere, and in Germany it was […]
Whilst not strictly a global conspiracy, capitalism in general thrives upon greed and self-interest. Therefore, the forces of capitalism will often find themselves aligned with one another in their assault upon socialist enterprise and government. The following article from teleSur, highlights the ways in which global capitalism will often merge to better attack any who […]
It is patently clear that the neo-cons of the US are moving their right-wing pieces across the board of Latin America. By shoring up their relations with the fascists that exist within those societies, they will hope to better position themselves for an eventual assault on, first Venezuela, and then any other nation that opposes […]
Can you listen to this without thinking of a Vietnam war movie. As the world moves ever closer to global conflict, perhaps this song will once again become extremely relevant. Will Trump’s children have to carry a gun and kill or be killed?
As the news article that follows shows, these are becoming evermore dangerous times indeed. Spare a thought for the citizens of North Korea, whose tenuous lives are now being turned upside down as they face the aggressions of a nation who have already just bombed another sovereign state. Is WW3 on it’s way?
It’s nauseating to hear Trump state his concern for children who are harmed by Syria, whilst at the same time he arms the Saudi regime who are slaughtering civilians in Yemen. His administration is also a supporter of Israel who are conducting a policy of Apartheid across Palestine, and have held a siege of the Gaza […]
