"Ukraine (could have) had a partnership agreement with Europe, but also with the Customs Union of Russia and the other former Soviet republics ... but of course, that wouldn’t have served the geopolitical strategy of the United States and their European allies. By making Ukraine choose, they forced the government to side with Russia, thereby inciting the destabilization campaign that they were looking for."

– Interview with Eric Draitser, independent geopolitical analyst and founder of StopImperialism.org, on the current crisis in the Ukraine

U.S. News Media's Coverage of Ukraine Crisis Paints False Picture of Good vs. Evil

MP3 Interview with Eric Draitser, independent geo-political analyst and founder of the StopImperialism.org, conducted by Scott Harris

ukraine

Following a three month occupation of Independence Square in Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, escalating street battles between protesters and police resulted in more than 85 deaths. The violence and loss of life, which grew out of opposition to Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych's abandonment of a proposed trade deal with the European Union, brought down the government and sent the deposed president, who now faces charges of mass murder, into hiding.  Story continues

Activists in Unsuccessful 2002 Coup d'état Now Leading Venezuela's Protests

MP3 Interview with Steve Ellner, lecturer at the Universidad de Oriente in Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela, conducted by Scott Harris

venezuela

After anti-government protests took to the streets in western Venezuela early in February, they spread to other parts of this oil-rich nation, where violence has broken out between many middle-class students and police. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, who has been in office just 10 months after his predecessor and mentor Hugo Chavez lost his battle with cancer last March, has vowed to quell the violence while also calling for peace talks with opposition groups. More than a dozen people on both sides have been killed, with an estimated 150 injured and 500 arrests.  Story continues

Proposed Campaign Finance Reform Bills Would Counter Flood of Unlimited Money in U.S. Elections

MP3 Interview with Nick Nyhart, president of Public Campaign, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

elections

More than eight months before this year's mid-term congressional elections, big money is already pouring in to many races. The multi-billionaire Koch brothers-funded group, Americans for Prosperity, for example, has already spent more than $8 million on negative advertisements against Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C. who is running for a second term. The ads focus on her support for the Affordable Care Act, the program’s problem-plagued launch and misstatements made by President Obama that everyone would be allowed to keep their current insurance policies, regardless of an insurance company’s power to withdraw coverage plans. Initial public opposition to ObamaCare along with confusion about the program’s provisions have provided powerful ammunition for conservatives trying to unseat Democrats. However, huge sums are being spent by both Republican and Democratic party donors.  Story continues
