Brazil’s Regime Destroying the Amazon Rainforest for Profit

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

In October 2018, hardline Social Liberal Party (PSL) candidate Jair Bolsonaro defeated Workers Party (PT) aspirant Fernando Haddad.

Fascism triumphed over equity and justice. Bolsonaro and retired general Hamilton Mourao running mate praised Brazil’s 1964 – 1985 military dictatorship, a dark period when countless numbers of regime critics were kidnapped and murdered.

According to Bolsonaro, former Brazilian military despots didn’t go “far enough” in eliminating regime critics.

His leadership is pro-hardline governance, pro-dictatorial rule, pro-free-market predation, pro-neoliberal harshness, pro-gun, pro-torture, anti-populist, anti-social justice, and ecocidal.

In 2019, deforestation of the Amazon rainforest — the world’s largest and most biodiverse, known as the lungs of the world

North Korea Slams Hostile US Military Actions

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

The US has been hostile toward North Korea since the peninsula was divided in August 1945 — changing the course of history negatively.

Two Kim Jong-Un/Trump summits achieved virtually nothing toward formalizing a peace treaty, rescinding unacceptable US sanctions on the DPRK, respecting its sovereignty, resolving major differences, or normalizing relations the way they should have been all along.

Talks between the US and nations it doesn’t control most often result in unacceptable demands in return for hollow promises — time and again breached, proving the US under both extremist wings of its war party can never be trusted.

Trump is indifferent to the rights of other nations and ordinary people everywhere, notably at home.

His interest in cutting deals with North Korea and the Palestinians is all about aiming for Nobel

Venezuela Talking with Hegemon USA

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

President Nicolas Maduro confirmed that he OK’d head of Venezuela’s Constituent National Assembly (ANC) Diosdado Cabello to hold talks with Trump regime officials.

Article 349 of Venezuela’s Constitution states no other power can “in any way impede (the ANC’s) decisions…” – not the president, National Assembly legislators or Supreme Court justices.

In early April, Venezuelan Chief Supreme Court Justice Maikel Moreno called on the ANC to strip (US-designated puppet) Guaido of parliamentary immunity, an action not taken.

He long ago should have been arrested and held fully accountable for complicity with the Trump regime’s coup plot, illegally self-declaring himself interim president, breaching Venezuelan law, and inciting rebellion against its legitimate leader and government.

Investigated for the above h

Pompeo’s Anti-Iran Rage

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Pompeo and Bolton are ideological extremists – contemptuous of rule of law principles and democratic values, supporting fascist tyranny at home and abroad.

Given the power of their positions, their psychopathic rage threatens world peace and stability.

Deranged and indifferent to the rights and welfare of others, they’re pathological liars, manipulative con men monsters, blaming others for US high crimes they support.

On Tuesday, Pompeo took his anti-Iran rage to the Security Council. He falsely said “(w)e helped dismantle ISIS’s physical caliphate, and we continue to work with (US imperial partners) in the defeat ISIS coalition to help the region recover from that menace.”

Fact: The US created and supports ISIS, al-Qaeda, its al-Nusra offshoot, and other terrorist groups, using them as proxy fighters, supported by Pentagon-terro

Kyle Bass Summarizes The State Of The World: “This Is Insane!”

Despite interest rates having bounced (albeit very modestly) in the last few days, prompting shrieks of “the lows for yields are in” once again, and hyped-up belief that ‘There Is No Alternative’ to dumping bonds and buying stocks at record highs, Hayman Capital fund manager Kyle Bass has a different view suggesting that a global re-awakening of easier-and-easier monetary policy will drive US rates to zero (and potentially beyond).

“This is insane. The Japanese are going to keep going. The Chinese print money like it’s a national pastime today. Europe is going to restart QE.”

During an interview with CNBC, Bass exclaimed:

“We’re the only country that has an integer in front of our bond yields,”

“We have 90% of the world’s investment-grade debt. We actually have rule of law and we have a decent economy. All the money is going to come here.”

What Will They Learn at College?

Yet, there’s a going-away-to-college question that far too few parents ask or even contemplate: What will my youngster learn in college?

The American Council of Trustees and Alumni provides some answers that turn out to be quite disturbing. ACTA evaluated every four-year public university as well as hundreds of private colleges and universities. That’s more than 1,100 institutions that enroll nearly 8 million students, more than two-thirds of all students enrolled in four-year liberal arts schools nationwide. ACTA’s findings were published in their report “What Will They Learn? 2018-19.” It doesn’t look good.

The ACTA assigned grades tell some of the story. Just 23 (2%) of the over 1,100 colleges earn an A grade; 343 colleges (31%) earn a B grade; 347 (31%) get a C grade; 273 (24%) earn a D; and 134 (12%) colleges earn an F. If you’re thinking that your youngster will get a truly liberal arts education, you are sadly mistaken. It turns out that less

The Black Swan Your Broker Doesn't Even Know About

Read more on this subject: Economy – International
News Story Source: https://lfb.org, By Graham Summers
It is clear the global economy is beginning to suffer from the ongoing trade war between the two largest economies: the U.S. and China.

Things worsened between the two nations over the last two weeks.

The White House floated the idea of implementing an additional 10% in tariffs on $300 billion worth of China’s goods.
China devalued the Yuan against the U.S. dollar.
The U.S. officially labeled China a currency manipulator.
The White House floated the idea of ending trade negotiations with China completely.
If things continue to worsen, we can expect central banks to start getting involved directly in the markets.

Specifically, I mean massive currency interventions happening on a near weekly basis…

Central banks will routinely intervene in the currency markets to support their own currencies. What’s more, central banks can be used to hurt other countries’ currencies.
