US Media In Propaganda War With Global Anti-Fracking Activism – 18 December 2014

RT logoAs 2014 comes to a close the American mainstream media has represented the most aggressive attack on global environmental movements that defend peoples’ right to live in healthy and clean environment worldwide.

The current attacks against anti-fracking everywhere seem to be locked in step with the growing pressure by the Obama administration on many countries to join trade agreements such as the Trans Pacific Partnership (TTP Americas-Asia) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP US-EU), and the anti-environmental rhetoric has been revved up to almost hysterical proportions. This year has seen such “revelations” as: the Ecuador vs. Chevron saga of international litigation that paints the lawyers representing a population hurt by environmental and economic devastation as swindlers and extortionists. Many allegations presented in this year’s book by Paul Barrett ‘Law of the Jungle’ were verifiably true, however the narrative concentrated only on one side of the legal fight while Chevron’s own violations of the law and ever changing games of judicial jurisdictions were given a pass resulting in what became a de-facto PR job for the company.

What has become interesting is the role of the mainstream US media that until now appeared to be journalistically neutral on the issue of big oil and big gas vs. the environmental movements. Notably the sea change has played out by a mainstay of the US news eco-system, National Public Radio (NPR). Not only has it started to take sides by quoting very skewered and unverified rumors in regards of the progress of the case in US courts, but it also created a new media reporting narrative that trumps everything done so far in the mainstream even by the standards of corporate owned media.

TTIP Won’t Lead To NHS Privatization, Deputy PM Claims – 18 December 2014

RT logoThe controversial EU-US trade deal, TTIP, would not be backed by the British government unless national control of public services is guaranteed, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has insisted.

The government would ensure EU negotiators provided written agreements guaranteeing there would be no threat to the NHS from private companies, Clegg said.

Speaking to students in a debate organized by Bite the Ballot on Tuesday, Clegg said he was aware of fears that the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) would undermine the National Health Service.

In an attempt to assuage anxiety over the agreement, he said he would only endorse TTIP if it was “crystal clear” that the British government would maintain control of public services.

Jon Rappoport – Monsanto: Science And Fraud Are The Same Thing – 18 December 2014

jon7Imagine this. A killer is put on trial, and the jury, in a surprise verdict, finds him not guilty. Afterwards, reporters interview this killer. He says, “The jury freed me. It’s up to them. They decide. That’s what justice is all about.”

Then the press moves along to members of the jury, who say: Well, we had to take the defendant’s word. He said he was innocent, so that’s what we ruled.

That’s an exact description of the FDA and Monsanto partnership.

When you cut through the verbiage that surrounded the introduction of GMO food into America, you arrive at two key statements. One from Monsanto and one from the FDA, the agency responsible for overseeing, licensing, and certifying new food varieties as safe. Continue reading

Europe Must Decide If It Wants Gas Via Turkey- Putin – 18 December 2014

RT logoThe new hub on the Turkish-Greek border could deliver Russian gas to Europe, but this will depend on negotiations with European countries, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at his annual press conference with media.

Putin’s 2014 Q&A marathon LIVE UPDATES

“To a big extent, this depends on European countries. Whether they would like to have stable, absolutely guaranteed, risk free energy supply from Russia, which they need. It will be good if we get it working. Via Greece we can reach Macedonia, and on to Serbia, and then to Baumgartner in Austria. If they are not interested then we won’t do it,”he said.

Russia was originally planning to build a pipeline to Southern Europe to directly export gas, but EU legislation was used to continually delay the project. On December 1 during a visit to Turkey, Putin announced the pipeline would run through Turkey to Greece, instead of Bulgaria as originally proposed.

Obama’s Cuba Decision: ‘US Tries To Move Russian Allies Away’ – 18 December 2014

RT logoAdrian Salbuchi is a political analyst, author, speaker and radio/TV commentator in Argentina.

mproving relations with Havana, the US is indirectly attempting to move Cuba away from its traditional alliance with Russia, believes international consultant Adrian Salbuchi. The Castro brothers will certainly take advantage of the thaw, he told RT.

RT: Why do you think President Obama has decided to announce this historic move at this particular moment?

Adrian Salbuchi: Latin America certainly agrees that it is good news, although, 54 years late. Anyway better late than never. I think that this is yet another sign of growing US weakness, not just as a global power, but also throughout Latin America. And that weakness is explained basically in a very fundamental loss of credibility. The fact that this has been done now is clearly good news, but it also shows maybe the waning of power of the Cuban exiles that live in the United States. Notably, in Cuba we have very important financial clout, who can also influence the vote. So I think in a way that is a sign that we are moving in the right direction. But it will also be interpreted well by many people in Latin America and also as a sign of weakness.

RT logoAt least 786 children in the US died of abuse or neglect at the hands of their parents or care givers, even as child protection agencies were investigating the cases, according to a report by the Associated Press.

The stories behind the statistics are filled with tragedy and despair and involve children – many of them younger than the age of four – who have become the victims of their care givers. To make matters worse, many of the children’s cases were being investigated by child protection agencies, yet they were still victimized.

​UK Oil Industry ‘Close To Collapse’ As Price Plunges Below $60 Per Barrel – 18 December 2014

RT logoBritain’s oil industry is in a “crisis” and may be “close to collapse,” a senior oil industry expert has said, as the UK’s biggest oil and gas companies continue to cut staff and investment and the price of crude slumps.

Speaking to the BBC, Robin Allan, chairman of the independent explorers’ association Brindex, echoed warnings made by other figures in the oil industry in the past month, saying that no new projects in the North Sea would be profitable while oil is being traded at below $60 a barrel.

“It’s almost impossible to make money at these oil prices,” Allan said.

“It’s close to collapse,” he said. “In terms of new investments – there will be none, everyone is retreating, people are being laid off at most companies this week and in the coming weeks. Budgets for 2015 are being cut by everyone.”
