On The Opportunistic, Would-Be Hijacking Of The Yellow-Jackets By Neoliberals

Published 2019-02-01 22:32:47 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Opinions, United-States

[Author’s Note: This piece was initially published some weeks ago; however, due to the ongoing nature of the Yellow Jacket protests in France – and the attempted neo-liberal-hijacking of anti-neoliberal forces occurring across the globe, it has been republished here for your consideration] A thought that’s been gestating in my head these past few days about the Yellow Jackets “political moment”, is how … I guess you could say that “populism” looks like *very* different things to different people. And, more specifically, how any genuine upswelling of ordinary-people political sentiment which is not *vigorously* (self) branded, will find itself seemingly… Continue ->

Published 2019-02-01 21:39:49 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Russia, Ukraine

KIEV, Ukraine – Kiev must stop being a “beggar” who humbles himself to the West and normalize relations with Moscow, otherwise its economy will collapse, opines former minister of the country. When it comes to Russian-Ukrainian relations, there is a threat of an economic collapse for Ukraine, says former Minister of Infrastructure Yegeny Chervonenko. “There is an objective reality – January is almost over, and together with it, European quotas end. The figures are indomitable,” he told TV NewsOne . In his view, it would be better for Ukraine to conduct an independent policy and stop acting as a “beggar”… Continue ->

Guaidó says Maduro removal will be advantageous for Russia and China BUT they disagree

Published 2019-02-01 18:46:15 by Paul Antonopoulos in China, Eurasia, Headline-News, Latin-America, Russia, Venezuela

CARACAS, Venezuela – Venezuelan National Assembly President Juan Guaidó, a self-proclaimed interim president, told Reuters that the change of government will be advantageous to major trading partners – Moscow and Beijing. According to Guaidó, President Nicolás Maduro does not protect the interests of Venezuela or foreign investment, and thus, a bad partner. In addition, the president of the Venezuelan Parliament has noted that he has tried to contact Russia and China. “What most suits Russia and China is the country’s stability and a change of government,” he said. “Maduro does not protect Venezuela, he doesn’t protect anyone’s investments, and he… Continue ->

Tensions against Russia, but Moscow hits back at Brazil’s agriculture

Published 2019-02-01 18:19:54 by Paul Antonopoulos in Brazil, Eurasia, Headline-News, Latin-America, Russia

MOSCOW, Russia – Due to the high amount of agrochemicals in soybeans from Brazil, the Federal Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance Service of Russia (Rosselkhoznadzor) could temporarily ban imports, the agency reported. This comes as the new Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, in his pre-election campaign often went on to attack Russia in the same fashion that plagued the previous US elections contested between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. In this regard, Rosselkhoznadzor informed the Agricultural Defense Secretariat (SDA) of the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture on the need to take urgent measures to ensure compliance with the requirements of the Technical Regulation… Continue ->

Allies Since Youth: Did Putin and Maduro play in 80’s Soviet band? (VIDEO)

Published 2019-02-01 16:17:42 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Latin-America, Russia, Venezuela

MOSCOW, Russia – Netizens have begun to suspect that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro secretly played in a Soviet rock band when they were young. The cause of this incredible idea is an 80’s video that shows two musicians resembling presidents. Everything is just a joke, but that they are alike, no one can deny. This is the Soviet group Alians (Alliance, in Russian). The name of the vocalist is Igor Zhuravlev and the keyboardist’s name is Oleg Parastaev. The song “Na zare” (“At sunrise”) dates back to 1987 and was very famous in the… Continue ->

Published 2019-02-01 10:40:30 by Joaquin Flores in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Syria, United-States

WASHINGTON D.C – A group of congressmen introduced bills to the House of Representatives restricting the ability of the Donald Trump administration to withdraw troops from Syria. The initiative was made jointly by both Democrats and Republicans, in a bold move that saw Republicans break with Trump in favor of further war and occupation. Their document includes a ban on the use of funds by the Pentagon to reduce its presence in Syria to 1.5 thousand or fewer military. “The US Department of Defense can not use the funds in fiscal 2019 for the withdrawal of troops until the Secretary of… Continue ->

FLORES: Is Guaido’s Life in Danger? Yes – But not from who you think

Published 2019-02-01 05:10:43 by Joaquin Flores in Headline-News, Latin-America, Opinions, Propaganda, United-States, Venezuela

Let’s be very very clear about something – Guaido’s life is the opposite of ‘in danger’, and with one small proviso, he’s the safest man on earth right now. Naturally, on time and as expected, the ludicrous liars of the western capitalist, imperialist-Atlanticist media are churning out their best product: bovine excrement. In their campaign to destroy the sovereign state of Venezuela, the British, Canadian, and American Deep State – all one, together with Israel – what I call the A5+I, are ramping up increasingly nonsensical claims. It’s all a psychological warfare campaign. Interestingly, New Zealand is going with ‘neutrality’… Continue ->
