BC: The Collapse of Rome: Washington’s $6.5 trillion Black Hole


Students of history will find eerie but quite predictable parallels between the collapse of the Roman Empire in the 4th Century AD and the collapse of America’s global hegemony today.

BC: Soros: The European Union is a “Failed” Experiment In “International Governance”


Is the Western elite’s brainchild – the European Union – disintegrating? Due to persistent economic problems, the rise of “popular resentment” across the continent, the political fallout after the illegal coup in Ukraine and the subsequent unpopular economic war on Russia, the EU is on the verge of crumbling. In an…

BC: Imran Khan and the Silk Road


The election of Imran Khan represents a turnabout in policy in South Asia in ways few expect. Khan will close the door on America’s longtime policy toward the Caspian Basin, a policy of dominance, regime change and military colonization.

BC: EX-CIA Chief John Brennan Describes Trump as a National Security Risk


Trump is… ‘Unstable, inept, inexperienced, and also unethical’ ~ John Brennan Well the gloves have certainly come off now.

BC: A View of the Deadly World Order


The outlook for humanity is not good. Crises that should by now, not even exist in the 21st Century, they now affect every man, woman, and child on the planet.

Yet again, we have a financial crisis in Europe. After the bailouts in Greece and Portugal we are told that Italy, once described as “too big to fail”, is once again on the verge of bankruptcy and the rest of the EU will be forced to ride in to rescue it. Apparently the financial press has it in for the Italians.

BC: America, the Runaway Train


Nearly half a century ago I demonstrated to stop the Vietnam War. At the time I was attending Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan.

At present we are witnessing an escalation of tension around the Syrian conflict, but Syria itself hasn’t got much to do with it.

BC: Facebook Is Teetering at the Top of the Beanstalk


Facebook and other social media were supposed to foster community and give a voice to the greater masses. This was the appeal of social media in the first place. In case Mark Zuckerberg or Twitter’s Jack Dorsey forgot – we made you, and we can break you. The recent move by Facebook to censor ads…
