Eco-Militants have declared labor unions persona non grata in today's Progressive World. They blast unions for their support of fracking for shale gas in the United States of America.
The Houston Chronicle reports that, "After early complaints that out-of-state firms got the most jobs, some local construction trade workers and union members in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia say they're now benefiting in a big way from the Marcellus and Utica Shale oil and gas boom."
BEIJING: Amidst the Obama Depression in 2010, Winston-Salem man, Dano Smith needed a job and accepted an ESL (English as a Second Language) teaching position in China. He came here with little money and just hoping to earn enought to pay the bills. Yet four years later, he had earned some fame as an actor and he's turning into a big-time movie producer.
He is in the works to produce a 1940s film noir set in Japanese Occupied Hong Kong/Macao, and superstar actress Bai Ling has already agreed to play a starring role as a sexy evil crime boss.
When Barack Obama campaigned for President in 2008, he told a group of Eco-investors in San Francisco that he would wage a war on coal. Nonetheless, he is considering a deployment of US Troops to the Eastern Ukraine to protect coal mines from falling into the hands of Moscow.
According to the Moscow Times, "With increased tensions in eastern Ukraine, home of the coal basin in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, the energy future of the country seems as bleak as ever. Despite being Europe's preferred alternative to Russian gas, coal does not often receive much spotlight. Ironically, most of Europe's growing coal import comes from Russia anyway."
When Sen. John McCain (R.-Az.) visited Kiev last December to endorse the Maidan Revolution, he boasted of his deep and abiding friendship with Ukrainian politician, Oleh Tyahnybok, a rabid neo-Nazi leader who blamed the Jews for the country's problems. Mr. Tyahnybok also sought to implement a national registry for all Jews in the Ukraine.
Business Insider reports that, "If you want a good picture of how complicated the situation in Ukraine is, look no further than Senator John McCain's recent trip to Kyiv."
The American Empire continues to crumble and yet we march forward to our doom without realizing just how foolish we look to the rest of the world. Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he will not invade Alaska, because it's "too cold." Nonetheless, neo-Conservatives and the American media is denouncing Putin for making those comments. That's like saying you have a "kick me" sign on your back and complaining that nobody is kicking you.
ABC News reports that, "Tell us how you really feel, Vladimir Putin. The Russian leader, who recently annexed Crimea from Ukraine, dissed Alaska today in his annual marathon question-and-answer session. Asked by a Russian woman if the U.S. state could be his next conquest, Putin seemed disinterested in adding it to his growing empire."
Russian President Vladimir Putin may soon score another diplomatic victory against US President Barack Obama. Moscow is planning to file a lawsuit with the World Trade Organization to halt US sanctions imposed on Russia.
The Moscow Times reports that, "Russia is considering filing a lawsuit against the U.S. with the World Trade Organization, or WTO, over sanctions against Russian banks, Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev said. St. Petersburg-based Bank Rossiya was sanctioned alongside its chairman and largest shareholder Yuri Kovalchuk in March as part of punitive measures by Washington over Russia's annexation of Crimea."
Russian President Vladimir Putin is scheduled to host his annual, "Hotline Session" in which he answers questions from ordinary Russians for four hours straight. Just imagine, President Barack Obama trying the same routine talking to oridinary Americans without using a teleprompter.
According to Reuters, "With Russian troops massed on the border with Ukraine, prospects of significant progress at the four-way talks appear slim. By contrast, what Putin says during his annual "hotline" session with the Russian people may have far greater influence on events in Ukraine's rebellious east."
