#CameronMustGo: ‘PM Won’t Be Losing Any Sleep Over Campaign’ – 3 December 2014

RT logoIt’s yet to be seen if the #CameronMustGo campaign is a threat, but so far, despite petitions and online campaigns, people have not seen much change in the way they are governed, current affairs blogger Jo Edwards told RT.

The Twitter hashtag #CameronMustGo appeared about ten days ago and has already got more followers than the “Yes” campaign for an independent Scotland. Those who put #CameronMustGo hashtag in their tweets criticize Cameron’s policies and want him to resign.

RT: What do you think behind this wave of criticism against David Cameron?

Jo Edwards: I think there is a myriad of things at the moment. We are looking at a huge increase in inequality across the UK; we’ve got a huge problem with the housing crisis, and some issues that the likes of Russell Brand have been admirably advocating. And we’ve still not seen any criminal sanctions taken against the bankers, the financial center, and we’ve also seen delayed action on claims of the pedophile ring, the EU in-out referendum, the NHS break-up. I mean there is a huge list of things the UK population is just not happy with at the moment.

Jon Rappoport – Education Programming 101: Destroy Logic – 3 December 2014

jon7Once upon a time, in medieval universities, new students enrolled in the Trivium. It was the foundation curriculum. It was required. Its parts were: grammar, logic, and rhetoric.

Grammar: the interior construction of language.

Logic: the valid and invalid connections in the course of a formal argument; the method of proper reasoning; the deductive links in a chain, at the end of which appears a conclusion.

Rhetoric: oral and written presentation; the use of language to make a case; the capacity to persuade, even in the face of counter-argument.

Today, the subject matter of the Trivium is not only downplayed. It has been shattered.

This article focuses on the death of logic in schools. Continue reading

Brazil, Uruguay Move Away From US Dollar In Trade – 3 December 2014

RT logoBrazil and Uruguay have switched to settling bilateral trade with local currency to stimulate turnover, bypassing the US dollar.

Payments in the Brazilian real and Uruguayan peso started on Monday. The agreement was signed on November 2 by the head of Brazilian Central Bank Alexandro Tombini and his Uruguayan counterpart Alberto Grana. Both countries believe such a move would strengthen trade across Latin America.

“The agreement was the result of long negotiations between the countries belonging to Mercosur [the common market of South American countries – Ed.], as well as the global strategies of BRICS,” RIA quotes Carlos Francisco Teixeira da Silva, Professor of International Relations at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.

Afghan Taliban Attacks Rise, UK Ex-Army Chief Plays Down Resurgence Fears – 3 December 2014

RT logoThe rash of Taliban assaults on a former British military base and attacks in Kabul should not be a reason for “talking up the number of attacks” in Afghanistan, the former head of the British Army says.

“The security situation is an important element in this, but don’t let’s fall into the trap of playing the Taliban’s game and talking up the number of attacks,” General Lord Dannatt said to BBC Radio 4’s World At One program.

His comments come as the last NATO troops prepare to withdraw after a 13-year military engagement. From 2001 to 2014, 453 British lives were lost in the conflict. Now, Taliban attacks are intensifying as the US-led coalition prepares to withdraw.
