annoying the western hegemony by countering its propaganda.....

There will only be real cooperation between Africa and Russia on the basis of real sovereignty of African states, experts say. It comes down more and more often, in our time, to deterrence through brutal force. Also, in the impossibility of affording the luxury of a nuclear deterrent weapon, we would have to find here and now the ersatz force necessary.

This force that Professor Obenga speaks about, how to go about it? We should, let us repeat again, consider not a simple partnership, but a formal alliance with Vladimir Putin's Russia, in its qualities as an uncontested military power and "permanent" counterweight to Franco-American unilateralism in the UN Security Council.

the dark side of the anglo/saxons.....

WHILE PANIC IS SETTING IN THE “WESTERN WORLD”. WE MUST KNOW THAT THE WESTERN HEGEMONY IS MAINLY THE ANGLO/SAXON CULTURAL/CONTROL/GRAB PENETRATION Of THE HUMAN PLANET.

THE ENGLISH DEFEATED NAPOLEON AND THE ENGLISH/AMERICANS DEFEATED THE GERMANS, THEMSELVES NOW WELL-TACKED TO THE ANGLO/SAXON HEGEMONY. 

THIS ENGLISH HEGEMONY STARTED WAY BACK IN THE MIDDLE AGES WITH THE CONQUESTS OF COLONIALISM, UNASHAMEDLY CALLED “THE BRITISH EMPIRE” NOW THE “AMERICAN EMPIRE”. 

WE KNOW THAT WW1 WAS A SET UP BY THE BRITISH EMPIRE TO PREVENT GERMANY TO RISE ON THE COLONIALIST MARKET…

the dark side of sciences in history.....

The dark history of genetics - with Adam Rutherford (2023 HBS Haldane Lecture)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gddkc5Snq3I

 

This lecture was recorded at the Ri on 11 October 2023.

 

Join the 2023 JBS Haldane Lecturer Adam Rutherford as he explores how, as we continue to use and celebrate the advances of our intellectual predecessors, we frequently fail to acknowledge the toxic political views that informed their work.

 

Even today, scientists are not exempt from their culture, and science is always political. In this talk Adam will explore the work, views and legacies of some of our heroes, including Karl Pearson, Ronald Fisher and yes, JBS Haldane.

 

her investigations were not welcome.....

One wonders how the Australian mainstream media will react to the news that India, the so-called biggest democracy in the world, has thrown out ABC correspondent Avani Dias from the country.

of banana-republic dollars and oily/gassy russian rubles....

The most likely outcome is that Russia’s bloated wartime public sector will block any downsizing, but high interest rates will bring down inflation. In an economy subordinate to political imperatives, there are few incentives for sustainable development. Sooner or later, this will hurt the well-being of ordinary Russians. In other words, temporary fixes and a decline in living standards will add to the political and economic headwinds facing the Kremlin. But given the existing safety margins and the nature of Western sanctions, it could take Russia many years to reach the end of its ability to muddle through such challenges.

 

a cannibal joke: what are boots?......

SYDNEY, April 22 (Reuters) - Papua New Guinea Prime Minister James Marape says his nation does not deserve to be labelled cannibals, and urged the U.S. to clear up the remnants of World War Two littered across the Pacific, after remarks by President Joe Biden last week about his missing serviceman uncle.

Biden had "appeared to imply his uncle was eaten by cannibals after his plane was shot down over PNG during WWII", Marape's office said in a statement late on Sunday.

investigating the investigation.....

What’s the scam with Penny Wong’s so-called “transparent” Binskin Inquiry into the Zomi Frankcom World Central Kitchen aid worker’s killings in Gaza? Stuart McCarthy reports.

Scams don’t get much more blatant than a government appointing an international arms dealer to “investigate” an apparent war crime involving his own weapon systems, against a humanitarian aid agency, in the name of “full transparency”. 

gas pipeline with no gas.....

The Australian public has bought a big-long gas pipeline from foreign tax cheats – but there’s no gas. It’s a white elephant! Jemena and sleepy regulators AEMC are the culprits. Energy consumers and taxpayers the victims. Michael West reports.

Energy bosses cover for tax cheat, public gets elephantine bill

The can’t say they weren’t warned this would be a shocker. They were warned by energy analyst Bruce Robertson and environment lawyer David Barnden more than five years ago. And so it is that the public has paid for a billion dollar gas pipeline which has no gas running through it. They built it anyway.

pages of the incessant aussie war book.....

It is extremely hard to kill off a public figure of the calibre of Mike Pezzullo. As with a person of similar personality, Tony Abbott, one can be sure they are out of the play for good only when their bodies lie at a crossroads at midnight, with a wooden stake through their hearts. Before that, their bloody, broken and bruised bodies may be on display, having suffered pains, indignities and humiliations no other person could survive. But while there is even a glimmer of a pulse, they are plotting their comebacks.

post-capitalism....

What the present moment reveals, once again, is that Western aggression during the “Cold War” was never about destroying socialism, as such. It was about destroying movements and governments in the periphery that sought economic sovereignty. Why? Because economic sovereignty in the periphery threatens capital accumulation in the core.

 

Capitalism is the single greatest source of violence     By Jason Hickel

 

This remains the primary objective of Western aggression today. And it is the single greatest source of violence, war and instability in the world system.

the american nazi intervention in yuckraine.......

On February 28, 2022, four days after Russia had attacked into Ukraine, Moscow and Kiev began peace talks.

The Russian attack had aimed to force Kiev to promise neutrality – i.e. not to join NATO. It also aimed to put an end to eight years of neo-NAZI and other militant bombing of the two Russian-speaking provinces of Donetsk and Lugansk, promised autonomy under the Minsk Accords of 2014-5 following the US and militant inspired Maidan uprising in 2014.

jesus's reference to a greek woman's daughter as a "dog" — mark gospel.....

As Donald Trump, the first US president ever indicted, faces justice [justice is a big word — call it POLITICAL INJUSTICIAL FAKE CHARGES] in a Manhattan courtroom, he is channelling his inner Aaron Burr, the first vice president to be indicted and brought to trial. Burr was not charged with murdering the revered Alexander Hamilton in a duel in New Jersey, but several years later, in 1807, for conspiracy to commit treason. Although disgraced, Burr was acquitted.

can't wait for the brisbane olympics....

Less than 100 days before the next Olympic Games in Paris, we can clearly feel the excitement and joy gripping the entire country. The capital and its inhabitants are clearly rejoicing in the festivities and never has the word “Olympic events” found such a beautiful resonance with what Parisians are currently going through, who are now enjoying every minute of anticipation of these future great moments.

the choice is clear as mud....

US President Joe Biden has implored his supporters to choose “freedom over democracy,” in the latest of a long series of gaffes and verbal blunders. Conservative pundits have viewed the incident as more proof that the 81-year-old is unfit for office.

Speaking at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Thursday, Biden rattled off a string of buzzwords as he asked voters whether they would choose him over former President Donald Trump in November’s presidential election.

“Are you ready to choose unity over division? Dignity over demolition? Truth over lies? Are you ready to choose freedom over democracy? Because that’s America,” he exclaimed. 

Biden’s “freedom over democracy” line drew a mix of laughs and applause from the crowd, and ridicule from conservative pundits and influencers.
