The escalation of tensions between the United States, Britain and France, on the one hand, and Russia, on the other, should not surprise anyone. In the last few years, the US leadership and mainstream British media have presented Russia as a major threat to global peace and the international order. Russian president Vladimir Putin in particular has been demonised as a ‘war-monger,’ an ‘aggressor,’ an ‘unscrupulous politician’ hell-bent on restoring Russia’s past glory’ at whatever cost […]

It is coming clear these days that many university professors are increasingly fat-cat and lazy, not doing any research once they get tenure. It is a system-wide corruption of the academy, so entrenched that central administrations have only led the corruption in multiplying salaries and offices with no committed function to advancement of learning and dissemination of knowledge – the constitutional and statutory objective of the academy the best are devoted to everywhere.
This deep-structural degeneration is not confined to any one place or region. Regular contacts from other universities report a similar decadence. The solution is straightforward, but unspoken: (1) to require a condition of tenure performance equivalent every three years to the PhD degree that got the job in the first place and (2) to set a ceiling on all faculty salaries at $110,000 for faculty and, at most, a ministerial level for presidents. Now bizarrely top-heavy universities ignore this constitutional and statutory objective at will to fund the top over the bottom with no limit of extremes. This institutional degeneration is global in reach.
The solution to this corporate decadence is: (1) to require a condition of tenure performance equivalent every three years to the PhD degree that got the job in the first place; and (2) to set a ceiling on all faculty salaries and administrative salaries at a ministerial level at most. In the past this would have been very generous remuneration for a far more robust research faculty, and today it would save taxpayers a huge amount while preventing the feeding frenzy at the top that has gone on without limit since the corporatization of the university began.
What is little noticed is the long plan. It is to defund the university and commodify all higher research; overpay tenured professors to buy them off; multiply central-admin salaries and office retinues to enforce the plan; and casualize 60% of the teaching for a new precariat of PhD’s paid a fraction of the salary of professors doing no more research than the bottom level are. No-one not lying today can or will deny it.
The Unasked Question
“How deep does the corruption of knowledge go?” is an unasked question. Yet ever more hair-raising and ignored evidence regarding Canada’s liberal governance comes to light, led by Richard Sanders of Project Conversion.
It all began with mass immigration into Canada of Nazi loyalists from Ukraine to overwhelm the actively progressive smaller numbers of earlier Ukraine-Canadians. It now runs to the top of Canada in hate-Russia politics led by a Foreign Minister descended from a ‘freedom-loving’ grandfather who was, in fact, the lead Nazi propagandist from the Ukraine in World War 2.
I wonder how many of us you saw the very recent news clip where PM Trudeau was backing Chrystia Freeland (her Canadian name) on Russia “interfering in Canada’s democracy” (March 4 CBC news). Young Trudeau unbelievably proclaimed that this Russian interference in Canada’s democracy was proven by attacks on Minister ‘Freeland’ with “scurrilous falsehoods about her background” As well reported outside the Ottawa bubble, these “scurrilous attacks by Russia” and “interferences in Canada’s democracy” were in fact reported by Canada’s establishment newspaper of record, the Globe and Mail as well as across the country in informed internet journals.
When the pleasant PM of Canada joins the Russia-hating propaganda unknowing of and concealing all the facts, it would be a grave mistake to ascribe this to merely his shallowness of knowledge. The deep concern arising among the informed is that all this hate-Russia propaganda is leading towards a more heinous outcome. Observe that the current hate-Russia atrocity story is based on the alleged poisoning of a Russia double agent. Few notice that the claims of evidence would be swiftly thrown out of a court of law; that the claims persist despite further reports of their concoction from British Porton Down laboratory of chemical weapons research itself; and that the whole hysteria has carried on at the headline level with no-one in Canada’s mass-media or government communications ever raising the issue of cui bono? as May’s Brexit government staggers from one failure and lie to the next, clearly desperate for the old Enemy distraction. Even the deaths of the double-agent spy victims was false news. One would be ignore-ant indeed not to see the convenient but criminal war preparations and propaganda unfolding again with NATO ever upping the ante of the war motions that never stop.
As always since 2000 and before, the US-led NATO war-making is based on demonstrably false pretexts, and is aimed at war for rich resources and territory by force of arms, big lies and horrific ruin of yet another formerly prosperous society with a well-developed, socially owned social infrastructure and huge natural resources for the taking – as in Yugoslavia, as in Iraq, as In Libya, and as in Ukraine since the fully documented US-and-neo-Nazi led mass-murderous coup of Ukraine’s elected federal government of 2014.
Yet ignore-ance can be so well dinned into the public mind by selected and repressed facts that people can be made to believe – even inside Science for Peace – that the uprising of the Russia-speaking East of Ukraine against the US-neo-Nazi coup was a Putin-made aggression, although he in fact refused the call of the newly forming republics to join Russia, thus preventing war. Still many people can be made to also believe that Russia’s traditional territory for two centuries, the Crimea, was forcefully seized in complete disconnection from the centuries past of Russia’s territory, as well as total erasure of the mainly Russian-speaking Crimean people’s overwhelming and peaceful referendum in favour of this action after the US-orchestrated neo-Nazi coup and return of Nazi symbols, military insignia, and mass-murderous actions had run amok – as in the police-allowed burning 137 people alive inside a trade-union building in Odessa.
Genocidal Bombing Again as ‘Peace and Freedom’
The stakes have kept getting higher since 2000 in selecting out all the facts, demonizing Russia as Ukrainian Nazi incubi still do, piling big-lie propaganda onto big-lie hate and propaganda as in the past with Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, and the vast natural, agricultural and fossil fuel treasure to be taken by the new war in the making of NATO bombing as “freedom and humanitarian Intervention” against a “barbarous despot” and “enemy of peace”.
Attention must be paid to the staggering reverse projections auto-limned in corporate state and press propaganda as the war drums build towards the great rape and destruction of yet another poorer society and people – with living conditions better beyond compare before the blanket bombing by NATO in the name of “civilisation” begins yet again. The now near-20 years of proof that the hate-propaganda and bombing only achieves the Nazi-style destruction and war grab of everything the non-capitalist socialist society had before, is now ignored far longer than the Nazi interregnum itself. Once again the horror is building step by step of absurd pretexts and cover-ups to destroy and take another, even larger society within Europe itself while Russia and Trump are the feature bad news.
Now we even have the Foreign Minister in Canada proclaiming false news of hate and the Prime Minister willing to go along with whatever script he is given – behind which is a very powerful vote-bank and force of descended Nazi loyalists from Ukraine pulling strings across generations since 1945.
Together the war-mongers for profit and huge natural resources of other societies and peoples are cooking up what US-led EU-corporate NATO has been drumming for since its rapid movement East against all promises into the ex-USSR through Ukraine, now up to Russia’s borders in vast-kill military forces seeking to incite war with more ludicrous pretexts than ever. It all started when Russia rationally reacted to the mass-murderous neo-Nazi coup of 2014 that was set in motion to grab the whole of Russia-speaking Ukraine and Crimea in one fell swoop of ‘freedom’. Putin’s greatest crime here has been to defend Russian-speaking traditional territories from the new corporate globalist Lebensraum that destroys and devours whole societies alive one after the other.
Now NATO’s inside anti-Russia Foreign Minister is sufficiently fanatic to declare “Russia’s interference in Canada’s democracy” with PM Trudeau support. In fact, the family background Foreign Minister ‘Chrystia Freeland’ (her Canadian name) was finally communicated to the public by the press of Canada after being covered up for so long. One sees here just how far inside Canada’s governance the Ukraine-Nazi connections go, now even to the Foreign Minister telling the PM hate-Russia lies that he publicly repeats.
In spite of this hate-propaganda revel let loose in 2018 to finish the 2014 job of seizing Ukraine by war crimes, all of the long-concealed and evil-spelling facts have an up-sideonce people know them. They can lead to wake-up from collaboration with the greatest war-criminal machine in history, NATO, whose foreign intelligence on Russia from the beginning was 75% based on Nazi SS spy dossiers who escaped punishment to wealth and military position in exchange for this invaluable information and capacity to attack East from 1945 on.
Withdrawal from NATO the overdue Stand for Peace
Life-coherent reason might even recognise that Canada’s withdrawal from NATO is essential to protect world peace and prevent war, as well as to avoid support of and complicity in NATO’s post-2000 string of eco-genocidal wars of criminal aggression against defenceless societies without aerial combat capacities against saturation NATO bombing of their evolved social infrastructures and productive means of life.
Withdrawal from NATO is what Sweden, Austria, Finland, and Ireland have already done, as well as Australia and New Zealand who do not want to join NATO because it will bomb anywhere under any pretext. Canada is moreover not exposed to attack from any foreign enemy since it is already in NORAD that is ready to bomb any real or imagined threat to Canada, “chomping at the bit” reported a visiting cabinet minister to me. By being in NATO, most deeply, Canada becomes an aggressor nation along with the US, the UK and France now all hardened to eco-genocidal wars for criminal corporate looting thousands of miles away from their borders – wars in which Canada already participates despite official claims to the contrary of ‘peace-maker’. Who connects them? Yugoslavia , Libya and Iraq and significantly Afghanistan have already been so attacked with Canada’s backroom assistance in this new century with sweeping concealment of the facts. All need to ask: GIVEN NATO’S ONGOING RECORD OF ECOGENOCIDE, WHY IS CANADA IN NATO?
Who Wants to Abet More War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity?
Not many people want to continue to aid and abet crimes against humanity and war crimes behind big lies launched against weaker nations with fabulous resources to loot. A former head of Canada’s armed forces, General Rick Hillier, has already explained the eco-genocidal bombing – here of Libya – without any official disagreement with his supreme crime adage: “We do it because we can”. This has been exactly what we have been doing as Canada before and since, with even legendary Science for Peace fronting for NATO to cover up the reality of Ukraine’s murderous overthrow of an elected federalist government with reverse accusation of Russia for the civil war thus caused.
Canada’s implicitly neo-nazi policy has already led us to aid and abetment of a war-criminal regime in Ukraine coming ever closer to another case of genocide by UN definition. Yet knowledge always wins in the long run – even if the corruption of the university at the top looms ever deeper at the same time as the big-lie NATO war machine warms up for another US-UK-EU led criminal war of aggression in Ukraine “against Russia aggression” and “for peace”. This time the facts will not allow the ultimate crime and corruption to proceed. People increasingly understand that knowledge is the ultimate duty to humanity’s life future – once they see through the prism of now-Russia hate to enable more NATO transnational corporate wars for military despoliation and massive resource and market looting in strategic position for more country-size contracts for profit and wars to come for ever more.

On August 9 , presidential elections were held in Belarus with five candidates bidding to be head of state. According to the Central Election Commission, the incumbent president, Alexander Lukashenko, won in the first round with over 80% of the votes. Mass protests began in Belarus right after the announcement of the preliminary election results. People went to the streets, expressing their dissatisfaction with the results of the elections that they believe were unfair. Mass protests turned into riots and there were clashes between rioters and the police. Many people were detained and injured, and two protestors died.Representatives of the ...
The reaction to the Syrian gassing incident shows that the U.S. ship-of-state is being piloted by fools.
Fool-in-Chief is President Donald Trump, who has duly followed the Neocon script by leaping to the conclusion that President al-Assad’s Syrian government is responsible when in fact there is no evidence of an intentional attack. Even if Syrian planes hit a munitions warehouse, the gas had been stored there by anti-government rebels /terrorists. It would be impossible and contrary to common sense that the Syrian government could have done this on purpose, if they did it at all.

Unfathomable as that may appear, yes, it was quite possible for the second-ranking slaughterhouse in Europe in recent memory to have slipped off the radar screen. Even such a renowned authority as Professor Gideon Greif is having an exceptionally difficult time of it in trying to put it back on.Precisely because it has not been the theme of any Hollywood spectaculars, Jasenovac does not attract any school excursions and textbooks are largely silent about it. Some background information on Jasenovac therefore seems like a good place to start.The Jasenovac death camp (1941 – 1945) is inextricably bound up with the ...
“Russia Wants to Undermine Faith in the U.S. Election. Don’t Fall For It.” Thus reads the cover ofTime magazine with a photo of Vladimir Putin on the cover staring at me from shelves as I sit in an airport. Genuinely curious, I check out Massimo Calabresi’s article online.
Of course, U.S. elections are almost completely unverifiable and do not even pretend to meet international standards. Jimmy Carter doesn’t even try to monitor them because there’s no way to do it. Much voting is done on machines that simply must be trusted on faith. Whether they accurately count the votes entered is ...
There was an interesting announcement recently that went almost entirely unnoticed in the Canadian media.
On June 17, Peter Szijjarto, foreign minister of Hungary’s centre-right government, made the startling declaration that his national security forces will erect a four-metre wall along the entire 175 kilometres of shared border with Serbia.
Szijjarto’s rationale for resorting to such a drastic measure results from a months-long flood of asylum seekers pouring into southern Hungary. While tens of thousands of these desperate illegal immigrants have been caught, detained and returned into Serbia, the vast majority have used the processing time for their asylum applications to simply ...
The American people should, in the words of Vietnam War Veteran Brian Willson “place themselves in the position of people living in targeted countries. That North Korea, a nation of 24 million people, i.e., one-twentieth the population of the U.S., many of them poor, a land slightly larger in area than the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, continues to be one of the most demonized nations and least understood, totally perplexes the Korean people.”
What most people in America do not know –and which is particularly relevant when assessing the “threats” of the DPRK to World peace– is that North Korea lost thirty percent ...
“To Hell and Back” is a phrase that can bear a pretty heavy metaphorical load when it comes to talking about the atomic bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. It’s also the title of a book by Charles Pellegrino.Pellegrino’s book is a moving and grueling close-up look at the horrors experienced by the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki both on the day of the bombing and in the days and years afterward. I have the heart of a dried-up raisin but even I got a little teary in places.There are few opportunities for inspiring “triumph of the human spirit” narratives amid ...
Chris Deliso of Balkanalysis points out the latest travesty of the Western media: 59,000 stories on Auschwitz, three on Jasenovac. As if the third-largest death camp in Nazi-occupied Europe simply never existed. Franjo Tudjman certainly thought so, and it appears the current Croatian leadership shares his "historical" perspective.Contemporary German estimates of Serbs murdered by the Ustasha (in Jasenovac and elsewhere) ranged as high as 750,000. Wiesenthal center uses the number of 600,000. Serbian researchers have spoken of up to 700,000 victims. Modern revisionists, Croat and otherwise, talk of 30-100,000, at most. Among them is the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, which ...
Yom HaShoah/Holocaust Remembrance Day: A state-sponsored institution in Vilnius rewrites history to the delight of Europe’s new ultranationalistsThis past winter here in Vilnius, the charming capital of Lithuania, was much like any other. During long solid weeks of subzero temperatures, as the flow of tourists and roots-seekers slowed to a trickle, I adjusted the route of my daily walk to pass by up to a dozen top tourist sights. Day after day, there was one constant: The most popular, winter-defying “must-visit” for foreigners is “The Museum of Genocide Victims.” Perhaps there is something grotesquely sexy about “genocide.” Maybe the promise ...
During and after the the Kosovo conflict in 1998-1999, the KLA abducted and kidnapped over 2,000 Kosovo civilians, Serbs, Roma, and Albanians that opposed the KLA, who were tortured and murdered. Ten years after the conflict, these 2,000 remain missing. Approximately 1,000 to 1,3000 Kosovo Serbs are missing and presumed dead. How did they die? UNMIK occupation forces have been reluctant to investigate these mass murders of Kosovo civilians. What happened to them? Evidence has emerged that the KLA ran a series of prison camps, in Kosovo and in Albania itself, where they tortured and murdered Kosovo Serbs, Roma, and ...
The Syrian battlefield is now witnessing an escalation of the war. This is despite the fact that it is supposed to be a time of cessation of hostilities brokered by the US and Russia.
The Syrian war has two major fronts. The first and most important is in southern Syria, on the borderline with Israel and the occupied territories of the Syrian Golan Heights. This area is divided into two areas: the liberated area of Al-Quneitra, and the occupied area of the Golan Heights where Jabhat Al-Nusra and Al-Qaeda’s base their fighters.
Israel has been attempting to drive the Syrian army out ...

“We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth…For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.” —Patrick Henry, Virginia Convention, 23 March, 1775

Britain is gripped by fear, panic and anger, after being struck by three terror attacks in the space of three months. Innocent men, women and children have been killed in the terror rampage, filling many homes with tragedy and despair. Martial law has practically been declared in many regions of the country, with troops now being a common site on the streets of Royal Britannia. Many are looking for someone or something to blame, as rage is increasingly triumphing over reason.
Lost in all this hysteria however, there sits a glaring connection that needs to be illuminated: the connection between these ...
After escalated provocations with Mexico, until he obtained the necessary pretext in 1846, President James Polk announced, “War exists,” thus explaining away how it really happened. After defeating Spain, William McKinley said he wanted to “uplift and civilize and Christianize” the Filipinos, and “by God’s grace do the very best we could by them.” But they’d already declared independence, so doing the “best” actually meant allowing the worst — killing and burning villages during a 12-year war of resistance.In 1947, Harry Truman (image right) wanted to “assist free peoples to work out their own destinies in their own way.” But ...
UN negotiator on Kosovo Martti Ahtisaari wanted to honor and commemorate Finnish Nazi SS troops in 1999 when he was the President of Finland. He wanted to have the Finnish taxpayers and the Finnish government fund and finance the construction of a plaque in the Ukraine to commemorate the deaths of Finnish Nazi SS troops killed during Operation Barbarossa.

Every informed person knows that there is no need of a defense force against Russia in the Baltics and Poland. Aside from this fact, only an absolute idiot could think that three or four thousand troops constitute a defense against the Russian Army.
