  • US Government in Shutdown after Senate Fails to Agree Budget
    The US government has shut down after politicians failed to agree a new budget, leaving hundreds of thousands of federal workers on unpaid leave. In a dramatic night in Washington, Republican leaders fell short of the 60 votes needed in the Senate to pass a spending bill to fund the government until 16 February. Without some type of funding bill, the US government technically ran out of money at midnight on Friday (5am GMT). That forced the government shutdown, with scores of federal agencies across America unable to continue operating. Republicans accused the Democrats of holding the government ‘hostage’ over ... ...

Several countries of Oceania (also known as South Pacific Nations), or however you want to call that vast, beautiful but thoroughly devastated part of the world, have voted “for Israel”, “for the United States’ proposed resolution at the United Nations”, and therefore, “against Palestine”. As reported on December 22, 2017 by Al Jazeera: The United Nations General Assembly has voted by a huge majority to declare a unilateral US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital “null and void”. At an emergency session of the General Assembly on Thursday, 128 countries voted in favour of a resolution rejecting US ... ...

  • The Viceroy Effect: Don’t shoot the messenger, rather understand it’s a short
    The Viceroy Research report came out a day after Steinhoff announced it would probe its accounting, and hours after CEO Markus Jooste quit. The result … Steinhoff’s stock plunged more than 80 percent soon after. And while many blame this report for the value destruction, it merely highlighted problems that Steinhoff’s management were at the heart of. Researchers build reports, some positive to encourage investors to go long, others the complete opposite. Viceroy is a short seller, so it targets overvalued companies. The Steinhoff report has now given them the much sought after ‘expert status’. And given they are expected to ... ...
  • Aren’t Ahed and Nariman Tamimi women too?
    As thousands of women, and men, dust off their pink pussy hats ahead of this weekend’s anniversary Women’s March, we are seeing many of the divisions that riddled last year’s rallies surface again.  Thankfully, we are also witnessing the emergence of a solid alternative to the shortcomings of imperial feminism. This is most obvious in Los Angeles, where Scarlett Johansson is scheduled to be a featured speaker.  In 2014, Johansson stepped down from her role as an ambassador for the global charity organization Oxfam, which she had represented for eight years, so she would keep endorsing SodaStream, the Israeli sparkling ... ...

  • Water crisis: Curve balls and chaos at Cape Town council meeting reveal political games
    Cape Town will enter a new phase of drought management, with Executive Mayor Patricia de Lille having been stripped of some of her powers, particularly regarding the water crisis. In a special meeting called by De Lille herself, the City Council was to vote on two matters – the proposed drought levy and the punitive water tariff. They were instead thrown a curve ball when Deputy Mayor Ian Neilson also introduced extensive amendments, which put restructuring, proposed by the DA Federal Executive on Sunday, back on the table. With the Mayor’s party effectively having publicly turned its back on her, ... ...

  • UNRWA ‘aid’ is aid only in the lexicon of Orwellian newspeak
    As has been amply reported in mainstream news, US president Trump has dramatically reduced US ‘aid’ to UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East. This, we are correctly told, deals a devastating blow to the principal agency supporting Palestinian refugees. But the money is, nonetheless, aid, right? It is assistance. Charity. A hand-out. Thank heavens for the US for having done so much to keep the refugees afloat. That this is a reasonable public interpretation of events demonstrates how deeply the mass media has sunk into the mythical Israel-Palestine ‘Narrative’. Gaza’s best ... ...
  • Without UNRWA I wouldn’t be alive today
    Regrettably, the well-being of millions of refugees is now being used as a weapon in the Trump administration’s political assault on Palestinians. On January 16, the administration decided to withhold $65 million of a planned $125 million in US funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). UNRWA was established in 1949 to provide direct relief and public works programs for the Palestinian refugees who were expelled after the creation of Israel in 1948. For almost 70 years, Israel has failed to address the problem of the refugees that it created, ... ...
