20.02.2015 The dispute over immigration reform and the obstructionism of the Republicans against the timid concessions offered by Obama produce the illusion of a dispute between antagonistic forces. A closer look reveals that, despite differing in tactics and in discourse in order to appeal to their respective electoral bases, the two parties defend similar interests.
16.12.2013 In the early hours of November 24, the agreement between Iran and the so-called "P5 + 1" group (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, the United States, Great Britain, France, China and Russia, plus Germany) was announced in Geneva.
09.11.2013 The Obama administration constantly adds problems and contradictions, domestically and internationally. The government's paralysis, for lack of a budget, that lasted for 17 days and kept the country (and the world) waiting, facing the risk that the main power on the planet would go into default, followed the blow that not being able to carry out his threats to intervene in Syria militarily, after its use of chemical weapons, and having to accept the Russian plan of negotiation with Al Assad, signified. Now, without a break, a great quantity of data about the massive espionage that the US carries out, not against countries that "promote terrorism," but against its own "friendly" great powers, like Germany, France, Spain and Italy, has again come to light.
25.10.2013 A scene that is beginning to be repeated: During a countdown, on the verge of taking the US to a default, because of reaching the legally allowed upper limit of issuing debt, Democrats and Republicans arrive at a precarious agreement that kicks the discussion on the debt ceiling up to February 7.
08.10.2013 On October 1, the US federal government had to close a large part of its offices, for lack of funds to operate, after the House of Representatives of the Congress, where the Republican Party has a majority, rejected the budget for the current fiscal year and refused to approve even temporary resolutions, that would allow continuing with line items of the Budget.
02.10.2013 After the government shutdown, more than 800,000 federal workers are immediately furloughed and over a million more will work without pay. Offices that provide important social services and National Parks and museums will be closed. Depending on its duration, the shutdown could cost billions to the US economy.
14.09.2013 In just two weeks, the US government went from announcing an imminent and unilateral military attack on Syria as a reprisal for the alleged use of chemical weapons by Assad's regime, to accepting a "diplomatic solution" proposed by Russia – Assad's main international ally – that would consist of the Syrian government's handing over its stocks of chemical weapons to international organizations for their destruction, under supervision of the UN.
08.09.2013 After Obama had established the use of chemical weapons as a "red line" for a military intervention in Syria, and after the August 21 attack, with what, it is presumed, would be that type of weaponry in a neighborhood on the outskirts of Damascus with hundreds of dead...
27.09.2012 The first teachers’ strike in 25 years in the city of Chicago began on September 10. More than 25,000 female and male teachers and school personnel went out to the street and maintained the strike for 9 days...
06.12.2010 Once again, the vulnerability of state secrets and the divisions, not only between Democrats and Republicans, but also among the upper echelons of political and military power themselves, as happened with the documents about Afghanistan and Iraq.
08.11.2010 The big Republican victory shows a big political setback for Barack Obama's administration, rather than the strength of the Republicans. The White House was expecting the "backlash" from the population, that is suffering the consequences of the biggest economic crisis since the 1930 recession.
07.08.2010 The magnitude of the leaking of these military documents is an extremely telling sign of the profound divisions in the military leadership and government over what is the best exit strategy that will allow concealing that after nine years of occupation, the war in Afghanistan is an unwinnable war for the United States.
27.07.2010 The White House is responding to Governor Jan Brewer's law and to the intensification of activity by racist and xenophobic groups with ... an unenthusiastic lawsuit. This is how Obama plans to confront a law that social, political and human rights organizations are already condemning as the institutionalization of racism!
27.05.2010 For the first ten days, the big media kept quiet about the facts. Now, when the spill has become the worst ecological crisis in history, the atrocity that capitalist businessmen and the United States political regime committed has begun to come out.
17.04.2010 Argentina's position against the Iranian regime explains, in part, the 15 minutes Obama gave Cristina [President of Argentina]. The Summit organized by imperialism discussed the alleged threat that nuclear weapons will fall into the hands of terrorist organizations, in order to cover up an obvious fact, that the main nuclear danger for humanity are the enormous nuclear arsenals that the United States and Russia possess, besides the smaller arsenals that France and Great Britain have.
10.02.2010 Os February 1, US President Barack Obama announced the year 2011 budget, that will be sent to Congress. The figures show that the US economy is in the red. These enormous sums of money will be used essentially for financing imperialist wars and paying interest on the government debt, that amounts to $12 billion.
09.09.2009 The Unasur Summit showed that the best situation for the local bourgeoisie is to try and maintain regional stability, given that the preceding years of economic recuperation has reactivated trade between countries within the region and despite the international crisis trade has continued.
12.02.2009 In the heat of the brutal economic crisis that destroyed another 598,000 jobs in January 2009, the enthusiasm between Obama's election and his inauguration and his first days of governing has rapidly dissipated.
08.12.2008 The generous rescue of Citigroup by Obama's recently appointed Secretary of Treasure, Geithner, demonstrates that despite the new president's demagogy of change, it's in the interest of the financial aristocrat's that pave the political path of the United States...
02.10.2008 Maybe the rescue will be successful, it cannot be ruled out. The US authorities and the central banks of the whole world are doing the impossible, although they are dragged down by events...
06.06.2008 Hurricane Katrina, which destroyed New Orleans in 2006, revealed a society where millions of poor people are marginalized, among whom African-Americans and Latinos are a disproportionate majority...
