- Chevron and Romanian police violently seize village for shale gas explorationDecember 4, 2013
The Police blocked any access to that camp with security fences and anyone who tried to get close was pushed back. The whole area was surrounded by the Gendarmerie and the access was denied for journalists. [...] They were only protesting against the usurpation of the land on which Chevron is trying to start the explorations for shale gas. This land was taken in leasing by Chevron from the mayor of the village. The land got into his possession through illegal exchange made between the village and another village, where the mayor’s wife owned a piece of land. The locals are claiming that the exchange was made eschewing proper regulations.
- The TurningNovember 11, 2013
But a strange torpor of event attends this year’s turning. In the year’s final happenings, nothing seems to happen, and what little does happen seems not to matter. The world sits with frayed nerves and hears a distant noise, which is the cosmic screw of history turning. [...] Societies have a way of reaching a consensus about something without ever stating it outright. The American public has silently agreed to sit on its hands though one more Christmas and after that things shake loose.
- Asst. Secretary of Treasury: ‘Ignored reality wiping out human race’November 3, 2013
In an article honestly titled, Ignored reality is going to wipe out the human race, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Paul Craig Roberts states that the 99% will take one of two paths:

- Trojan Horse Legislation Would Allow MORE NSA Spying and Further Harassment of WhistleblowersNovember 2, 2013
As we noted previously, Senator Feinstein has introduced a Trojan Horse spying bill which would legalize mass surveillance. “The modest improvements [the bill] makes are far outweighed by the damage it does to civil liberties,” said Greg Nojeim, of the Center for Democracy and Technology.
- Drones, the Media and Malala’s MessageOctober 19, 2013
This is in keeping with other media patterns we’ve seen. Earlier this year, Farea al-Muslimi, a Yemeni writer and activist, came to Washington to deliver moving testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee about the effect of drone strikes on his country: ”What the violent militants had previously failed to achieve, one drone strike accomplished in an instant. There is now an intense anger against America.” His words received scant coverage in the US media
- ”A Corporate Trojan Horse”: Obama Pushes Secretive TPP Trade Pact, Would Rewrite Swath of U.S. LawOctober 6, 2013
”This is not mainly about trade,” says Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch. ”It is a corporate Trojan horse. The agreement has 29 chapters, and only five of them have to do with trade. The other 24 chapters either handcuff our domestic governments, limiting food safety, environmental standards, financial regulation, energy and climate policy, or establishing new powers for corporations.”
- Syria War “Coalition” Dissolves: Britain, France, Canada and Most Other Countries Say NO to SyriAugust 30, 2013
Britain, France, Canada, Nato, Israel, Italy, Jordan and the rest of the world have said no to a Syrian attack.

- Copyright Infringement Is Being Treated as TerrorismAugust 18, 2013
The music and film industries are demanding that the European parliament extends the scope of proposed anti-terror laws to help them prosecute illegal downloaders. In an open letter to MEPs, companies including Sony BMG, Disney and EMI have asked to be given access to communications data – records of phone calls, emails and internet surfing – in order to take legal action against pirates and filesharers. Current proposals restrict use of such information to cases of terrorism and organised crime.
