On January 9, 2020, the House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress voted 224–194 to pass a non-binding War Powers Resolution to limit the president’s ability to pursue military actions against Iran without congressional consent. It came into limelight after the US-Iran conflict recently. On January 4, 2020, the White […]
Prior to the UN Convention on Climate Change talks held in Madrid, the sense that tradition would assert itself was hard to buck. Weariness and frustration came in the wake of initial high minded optimism. Delegates spent an extra two days and nights attempting to reach a deal covering carbon […]
Thierry Meyssan underlines the extreme gravity of the collapse of the world’s current landmarks. We are entering a short transition period, during which the current masters of the game, the “financial capitalists” – and those he refers to here have nothing to do with either original capitalism or the original bank – will be rejected in favour of the rules of law laid down by Russia in 1899.

This is why, when the Pentagon delegates the economic headquarters of the countries it wishes to destroy to the US Department of the Treasury, all members of the European Union and NATO are obliged to apply US sanctions.
Now weakened in comparison with their Russian and Chinese competitors, the United States have returned to their historical reflexes. In terms of foreign relations, they have abandoned the liberal international order and returned to the doctrine of exceptionalism.
164 countries signed the politically binding UN Migration Pact during a summit in Morocco. This piece of international legislation is marked by controversy after over a dozen countries got cold feet in the months following its provisional agreement over the summer by all UN member states except for the US.

The amount of energy we can extract, compared to the energy we are using to extract it, is decreasing “across the spectrum — unconventional oils, nuclear and renewables return less energy in generation than conventional oils, whose production has peaked — and societies need to abandon fossil fuels because of their impact on the climate.
