(EDITOR’S NOTE: This a huge victory for the Global South and the overall worldwide resistance against Zio-Imperialism. The CIA and ubiquitous, meddlesome Jewish-Zionist billionaire George Soros were desperately attempting to unseat President Rousseff, but as the case has been since Comandante Chávez — rest in peace — came to power in Venezuela 15 years ago — despite some setbacks, like the “Israeli”-driven coup against Honduran President Manuel Zelaya in June 2009 and the CIA-backed ‘soft’ coup which overthrew Paraguayan President Fernando Lugo in 2012 — the Latin American people’s power prevailed over the Empire’s plots, manifested in this instance by neoliberal gusano Aecio Neves. Granted, Rousseff’s policies vis-à-vis the usurping Zionist entity aren’t where they should be, but if her stance during the recent “Israeli” onslaught against Gaza was any indication, then we hope they will soon become as fierce as her counterparts in Sucre, Caracas, Managua and Quito. Congratulations to President Dilma Rousseff and the Brazilian people, may the peace, blessings and protection of ALLAH (SWT) be with them. ~ Jonathan Azaziah)
Brazil’s leftist president Dilma Rousseff has been re-elected for another term with over 51 percent of the vote in a tight presidential run-off on Sunday. Continue reading Rousseff reelected president of Brazil
Occupied Jerusalem, SANA – Forces of the Israeli occupation transferred two wounded terrorists from Syria to Nahariya Hospital in Galilee in the north of the occupied Palestine over the past 24 hours.
The occupation authorities gave conflicting figures about the number of hospitalized terrorists who have been taken from and to the disengagement area in the Syrian Golan for cure.
The Israeli Walla website reported that two wounded suffering from injuries in the face, limbs and chest were transferred from Syria to Nahariya Hospital, adding that the Hospital have treated 408 so far. Continue reading More wounded terrorists from Syria moved to Israeli hospitals

Around this time last year, parliamentary records show, the retired property developer and hugely generous Labour party donor, Sir David Garrard, had given a modest £60,000 towards the party’s election campaign for 2015. It came in addition to around half a million he had already given since 2003.
Fast forward to 16 June of this year, Garrard hosts a Labour Friends of Israel event, at which Labour leader Ed Miliband is the main speaker. The prime minister hopeful had, the year before, proclaimed that he was a Zionist. The lobbying group he addressed boasts dozens of Labour peers and MPs amongst its membership, including the Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls.
That same day, Garrard transferred a whopping £630,000 to the Labour party accounts, over ten times his donation from the previous year. Continue reading How Money From Pro-Israel Donors Controls Westminster

– October 21, 2014) – When Russian President Vladimir Putin cut off European Union imports of agricultural products earlier this year, one of the rationales was to give a boost to the badly underdeveloped domestic sector – and it seems to be working. September’s retail and investment numbers were down but agricultural production soared by 16.8% year-on-year in September, according to Rosstat.
“Domestic demand in Russia remained sluggish in September, retail sales, which reflect household consumption, edging up 1.7% year-on-year. This is slightly better than what we saw in summer and puts the nine month tally at 2.3% y-o-y,” Alfa Bank’s chief economist Evgeny Gavrilenkov said in a note on October 20. “Conversely, the agriculture sector posted extremely strong growth of 16.6% year-on-year in September and 7.7% in the first nine months of this year. Combined with strong industrial output growth last month (2.8%), driven by import substitution, this should lead to improvements in basic sector output.”

Hugo Chavez—the colorful Venezuelan strongman, a popular figure throughout Latin America—is dead.
Although the controlled media contrived to mislead Americans into perceiving Chavez as “anti-American,” the truth is that the bombastic South American icon was actually a forthright nationalist critic of the internationalist and imperialist forces often referred to as the New World Order.
Like many who oppose the privately-owned Federal Reserve money monopoly which operates un-Constitutionally on American soil, Chavez was a critic of rampant global super-capitalism, which Chavez called “the demon.”
There is no question Chavez knew the source of his high-powered opposition. In 2000, announcing a trip to Iraq, Chavez taunted his critics, remarking: “Imagine what the Pharisees will say when they see me with Saddam Hussein.” On another occasion he asserted: “The world has wealth for all, but some minorities, the descendants of the same people that crucified Christ, have taken over all the wealth of the world.” Continue reading Chavez Fought The New World Order

Emersberger responds to the recent opinion article “Paralysed Venezuela vs Thriving Bolivia”, arguing: “Maduro’s government, like that of Chavez before him, is facing an economic war and other forms of destabilization. The lesson from Bolivia isn’t that it must try harder to win over foreign and domestic elites. On the contrary, Bolivia’s example offers ways to fight more effectively.”
The Morales government has been more defiant of economic orthodoxy (i.e. more radical) than Venezuela’s in some important ways.
A piece appeared in Aporrea by Hernán Luis Torres Núñez that made the comparison between Bolivia’s and Venezuela’s economic performance over the last few years. It’s a very important comparison for obvious reasons and I’m glad he made it. However, his general conclusion that the Morales government has been more “pragmatic” than Chavista governments in Venezuela is very misleading. The Morales government has actually been more defiant of economic orthodoxy (i.e. more radical) than Venezuela’s in some important ways. Continue reading Bolivia-Venezuela Comparisons Should be Very Helpful to Radical Chavistas

After the corporate media and the CIA and George Soros manipulators tried to engineer Green Party-turned-Brazilian Socialist presidential candidate Marina Silva into the Brazilian presidency after the classic CIA textbook aerial assassination of Socialist Party presidential standard bearer Eduardo Campos, these same forces are at it again on behalf of Social Democratic Party candidate Aecio Neves. Although Neves was polling in second place to Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff before the first-round presidential election on October, the death of Campos and his senior aides in a highly suspicious plane crash on August 13, forced Neves into third place in polls. Silva, a favorite of Soros and his international network of cash-flush non-governmental organizations, was propelled into second place.
However, thanks to an aware Brazilian investigative journalism press corps, Silva’s connections to Soros and his team of interventionists and hedge fund tycoons was exposed. With Brazilian voters wise to Silva’s puppet strings to Soros and other global bankers, she managed to only come in third on October 5. Silva subsequently endorsed Neves, Soros’s second selection to take over the reins of presidential power in Brazil from Rousseff.
