I am a concerned American who has serious problems with the tragic turn that our society has taken. Of primary importance is the the total corruption of our institutions first and foremost our political system. This would not have been possible without the complicity of a corrupt corporate media and it is imperative to use the alternative media to circumvent the propaganda and get the truth out.

Democrats Laying the Groundwork For 2016 Catastrophe
After a humiliating beating in the 2014 elections Democrats are already taking steps towards a greater disaster in 2016. The Senate Dems have once again chosen Harry Reid as their leader and Nancy Pelosi is likely to hold onto her gig as well. Obama is busily working to seal the deal on the TPP and the great Hillary leap of faith nears. Common sense says that if you are in a hole just stop digging not ask for a bigger shovel.

The Democrats Got What They Deserved
Tuesday's electoral massacre may prove to be the cornerstone of what Karl Rove once referred to as a "permanent Republican majority". Despite much weeping and gnashing of teeth there has yet to be any acknowledgement that the Democrats themselves are responsible for their stunning defeat. There is little time to stop an even worse beating in 2016 and early signs are pointing to a suicidal doubling down on failure.

Obama's Chickens Coming Home to Roost in Kiev
With the U.S. backed junta in Kiev having badly lost the fight over the corporate booty in East Ukraine the blowback is coming. Hell hath no fury like fascists and neo-Nazis scorned and they are headed to the Maiden to protest the Poroshenko puppet government. I doubt that neocon Victoria Nuland will be showing up to pass out cookies this time around.

Obama and the Democrats: The Lesser of Two Evils is Still Evil
There is a widely held perception that the Democrats are the lesser of two evils and preferable to the more overtly fascist Republicans. It is increasingly apparent that this is not true, especially in the lamentable Obama era. I was able to interview non-partisan grass-roots activist group St. Pete for Peace's Chris Ernesto on a contest that they are running to spread awareness that Dems are NOT the lesser of two evils.

Florida Group Gets Message Out About Israeli War Crimes in Gaza
Americans are deprived of any semblance of balanced coverage on the ongoing Israeli attacks on civilians in Gaza. This is due to a corrupt media and a political class servile to right-wing Israeli pressure groups. Change begins with getting the truth out and it must come from the bottom up as OEN proprietor Rob Kall so often states. It is encouraging to see the efforts of local grass roots groups in getting the word out.

Obama Regime Engaged in MH17 Cover Up
The Obama regime has yet to show any documented proof to back up their ongoing propaganda blitz indirectly blaming Putin for the shootdown of MH17. While political hacks try to sell social media clips as "proof" there is an ongoing absence of detailed US satellite imagery showing where the missile came from. To believe that it doesn't exist is ludicrous for the global surveillance machine that sees absolutely everything.

Sports Icon Tony Dungy Outs Himself as Anti-Gay Bigot
Despite ongoing and encouraging progress there is a deeply entrenched, institutionalized and widespread streak of hatred and intolerance towards gay people that continues to rear it's ugly head. This is especially predominant with the adherents to the mutated American version of Christianity which mixes Jesus with Orwell. It is most evident when a revered national figure lets their true feelings slip in an unguarded moment.
Tuesday, July 22, 2014 The Sunday Morning Television Orgy of John Kerry
In the aftermath of Thursday's apparent shoot down of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 the entire US political establishment and it's bought and paid for media have been frantically selling the big lie to blame it all on Putin. No independent, objective investigation has yet been conducted yet the certainty with which the judgment has already been made indicates the degree of contempt that truth is now viewed in the Homeland.
Friday, July 18, 2014 Establishment Begins Building the Case Against Putin for Downing of MH-17
The apparent shooting down of a Malaysian passenger jet over East Ukraine on Thursday provides the US war machine with a gift from the heavens. After months of lies and demagoguery to justify their thinly disguised push for regime change in Moscow they now have an excuse that will resonate. The corrupt state-corporate media can now whip up the American public into a blood frenzy. The dogs of war are howling now.

Return of the Day of the Flag Suckers
The Fourth of July is a gut-wrenching orgy of flag-worship that forgets what the holiday, "Independence Day" truly represents which is the casting off of the yoke of tyranny. In the era of the post September 11, 2001 cult of the worship of the uniform and the flag the whole day is forced and phony and only serves to provide cover for the nearly fully implemented police state. How far that we have fallen in the USA! USA! USA!

Is There a Second NSA Leaker Besides Edward Snowden?
The explosive story in German media that the NSA is targeting users of online privacy tools such as Tor and Tails and considers even the research of such tool as reason for being placed in a database of extremists has given rise to a new and game-changing possibility. The sample of code from the snooping program XKeyscore that was published did not come from Edward Snowden. Is there a second NSA leaker?

Glenn Greenwald's Big NSA Story Gets Squashed
In what appears to be a blatant US government effort to stop that really big "imminent" story by Glenn Greenwald on the NSA the announced publication on The Intercept has been inexplicably called off. In an ominous and cryptic tweet Greenwald wrote that the "USG today suddenly began making new last-minute claims" that killed the story. What those "claims" are is unknown but at least for now the government has won.

The Flavor of the Summer is Fear as Media Hypes Scary Muslims
As America is rapidly dragged back into the Middle East morass of violence and death with Obama sending more troops to Iraq to fight the mysterious ISIS and their new caliphate it is time to acknowledge the truth that nothing is ever going to change thanks to 9/11 established the enduring power of fear. The media is ablaze with tales of terror as the scary Muslims return with a vengeance just in time for election season.

Ultimatum of the Finger Wagger: Kerry Again Threatens Russia
Anti-Russian demagoguery over Ukraine is again heating up with Secretary of State John Kerry issuing an ultimatum to Putin for more sanctions if he doesn't disarm freedom fighters in the East. More ominous though are comments by NATO head Anders Fogh Rasmussen that Putin and the Russians have now infiltrated the anti-fracking movement. Could US based activists soon be officially branded as "terrorists" for their protesting?

Greenwald Touts Imminent Release of Shocking NSA Story
Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Glenn Greenwald has announced the "imminent" publication of a story on exactly who is being targeted by the NSA. This could be the first in a series of tales of surveillance state abuse that will be so shocking that Americans will have no choice but to be moved to action to reign in the monster that has devoured the Constitution.

The Executive Order Hypocrisy of John Boehner
Republican Speaker John Boehner's most recent dog and pony show is a publicity stunt to sue President Obama over his use of executive orders. What Boehner leaves out is that not only did he not criticize or sue Bush for the executive orders issued during the eight year national nightmare but actually wrote to Bush requesting such an order to be issued. It must be time to fire up the dregs of society for the midterms.

Disinformation Nation: War Criminals and Shills Dominate Media
The state-corporate media is allowing war criminals and shills to dominate the discourse as the lies are churned out to lay the groundwork for more war. There is nowhere quite like the Sunday morning "news" shows when it comes to sheer dishonesty in trotting out right-wing fanatics. Left cover for the warfare state is provided by guys like HBO's Bill Maher a vitriolic anti-Muslim bigot preaching hate with a smile.

War Now and War Forever as Cheney and the Neocons Bask in Glory
As Orwell once wrote "He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past" and the Dick Cheney led Neocons who are exploiting the violence in Iraq are determined to do just that. The sick thing is that the same media culprits who were responsible for the original lies that led America into the Middle East morass are doing it again and getting away with it.

The Mask Slips: Ukraine PM Invokes Nazi Era Rhetoric
While the US media has been engaged in an unprecedented lockout over the true nature of the composition of the puppet government in Kiev - completely omitting the neo-Nazis and fascists - the truth does seep out through the cracks. Prime Minister Arseniy "Yats" Yatsenyuk invoked the Third Reich era concept of "subhumans" or "untermensch: in railing against anti-austerity forces in the east as the civil war percolates.

Chris Hedges Accused of Plagiarism in Obvious Smear Campaign
Chris Hedges is the latest in the line of targets of the sleazy smear campaigns directed at those whose writings and advocacy threaten the corrupt power structure. He is a man who is hated by both the right-wing and Democratic party establishment and his suit against Obama over the NDAA was a mortal sin to be avenged. The New Republic in having already slimed Snowden and Greenwald has now gone after Hedges hammer and tong.
Saturday, June 14, 2014 Obama Regime's Provoking of Russia is a Nuclear Disaster Waiting to Happen
The ongoing jousting by the Obama regime and the warmongering State Department to provoke a conflict with Russia has the potential for catastrophic consequences. With the news of Russian bombers spotted off the West Coast and Obama's dispatching of nuclear capable stealth bombers to Europe the chances for a nuclear accident grow with each escalation. It isn't like accidents haven't happened before in regards to nukes.

Iran-Contra Figure Behind Fox News "Exclusive" Bergdahl as Jihadist Smear Campaign
The Fox News propaganda machine has been pushing the lurid tale that the just-released prisoner of war Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is some sort of Muslim terrorist sleeper agent. While TV-addled Americans who watch too much "Homeland" and "24" will eagerly swallow up this whopper, it is of the utmost importance who is behind it. Duane "Dewey" Clarridge, an Iran-Contra figure who was pardoned for perjury is the go to guy on this one.

Lynch Mob Rule as Bowe Bergdahl's Hometown Surrenders to the Terrorists
The eruption of mass hatred unleashed by political operatives and spread by a corrupt propaganda machine that would make Goebbels proud over the negotiated release of American prisoner of war Bowe Bergdahl is as disgusting as it is terrifying. The bloodlust that now exists within the right-wing element is a danger to all rational Americans, particularly since they are heavily armed and ready to rumble when the order comes.

Is There a More Loathsome American than John Kerry?
Secretary of State John Kerry continues to be an embarrassment to America as well as a deserved object of mockery. His slithering around on morning TV on Wednesday to take cheap shots at heroic whistleblower Edward Snowden reveals that he is not only a buffoon but has serious character flaws and his beef with Snowden and Putin is of a personal nature. Had he any decency - which he doesn't - he would resign today.

Will US "Financial Neutron Bomb" be the Opening Shot of World War III?
There is no slowing the Obama/neocon drive to take down Russian leader Vladimir Putin. While it would be the utmost in lunacy to believe that a nuclear first strike on Russia can be survived the best and the brightest are delusional to the point of believing that a massive financial first strike would do the trick. It is thinking like this that makes 2014 more perilous than 1962 as Dr. Strangelove is now at the US Treasury.

The Undeclared War on Muslims is Big Business in America
Putting aside Cold War II for now it is very important that the primary underpinning for the phony war on terror and the wealth transfer necessary to sustain it depends on the ongoing demonization of Muslims. The New York Times, having fully gone to seed as a news organization is now selling itself out as a forum for the most vile type of anti-Muslim propaganda that exists today in a new ad that sows the seeds of hatred.
Tuesday, May 20, 2014 SOMALGET: NSA Recording all Cell Phone Calls in the Bahamas
New revelations of NSA programs have been revealed at The Intercept in a story entitled "Data Pirates of the Caribbean" detailing the recording of ALL cell phone calls in the Bahamas. This is being done without the host country's permission and has been piggybacked on top of DEA operations. More evidence that "keeping Americans safe" and "preventing terrorism" are lies to conceal the true intention of the programs.

American Oligarchy: Biden's Son Hired by Ukraine Gas Company
More evidence of the thorough rottenness of the US political system in the age of the oligarchy was revealed with the news that Vice President Joe Biden's son has just landed a job with Ukraine's top gas company. There is no longer any shame in that such a blatant conflict of interest occurs openly while Americans are being lied into supporting war and destabilization in the same country. Just move along, nothing to see here.

A Pall of Shame on America as Neocon Cookie Crumbles in Ukraine
The referendum in East Ukraine has rubbed a dose of rock salt into the self-inflicted wounds of the neocons as anti-fascist,anti-austerity voters turned out in droves to exercise their right of self-determination against the coup regime in Kiev. Here in The Homeland, the media propaganda machine is on set high. You would think that CNN could at least get the location of Ukraine correct but that's just the way we roll here.

American Warlord: Obama's Empire of Blood
The trade-union-hall massacre that took place in Odessa last Friday along with President Obama's failure to strongly condemn the inhuman acts of cruelty committed by elements of the US-backed coup regime in Kiev is of historic nature. Mr. Obama has now crossed over into the domain of the gangster and as a result has forever stained whatever remains of the tattered reputation of the United States. This is the way we roll now.

Peter King's Terrorist Pal Arrested in Murder Investigation
There are few better examples of the total rot of the American political system than Congressman Peter King of New York. King is a reliable on call shill for the authoritarian Homeland and a virulent anti-Muslim bigot whose McCarthy style inquisitions are a disgrace to every principle of American ideals. King however has skeletons in his closet one of which is rattling it's bones now as his own ties to terrorists come out.

Wag the Finger: John Kerry's Increasing Instability
Now that the problems created by the actions of fools who have created their own Frankenstein Monster in Kiev is leading to historic woe there will be accountability. When historians haul this disaster onto the autopsy table to find out just where it all went wrong the results can be more than partially attributed to one John Kerry who like Breaking Bad's Walter White's character arc has come full circle to bite him in the ass

The Pot Continues to Boil in Ukraine as Obama Regime Stumbles Towards War
By now it is obvious that Obama and his regime are not going to back down in the dangerous game being played in Ukraine. Hellbent on sticking it to Putin over slights and long festering anti-Russian hatred within the bowels of the Deep State we find ourselves lurching towards something very ugly. The ship of state is not only rudderless but the captain has gone mad and has set the course for the iceberg at ramming speed.

Biden Goes to Kiev as Corrupt US Media Pushes Lies and Propaganda
Vice President Joe Biden took time off off from his busy schedule to pay a visit to the coup installed government in Ukraine and the puppet "Yats". This is an ominous and desperate sign as the US establishment is hellbent on what could be a suicide mission to confront a nuclear power that is Russia. The corrupt US media continues to pump out the lies though, not even bothering to respect the sanctity of Easter Sunday.

BOSTON STRONG: A Celebration of the Police State
During the past week the propaganda on the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing has only been exceeded by the ongoing drive towards war with Russia. It has been close though and what is omitted from the testimonials to the victims of that heinous act of criminality is any mention of the de facto state of martial law that was rolled out in the suburbs of Boston. The bumper sticker slogan "Boston Strong" avoids the truth.

Ukraine Jew Registration Hoax Smacks of Psyop Campaign
The nadir of the anti-Russian propaganda campaign has finally been reached. In a lurid, rapidly spreading tale that has been seized upon by a corrupt state-corporate media in full feeding frenzy a leaflet requiring the registration of Jews was discovered in Donetsk. One may recall that back in 2006 a similar tale about Jews being forced to wear badges by Iran's regime was debunked and retracted - as this one will be.

Making Ukraine Safe for Corporate Vultures
Now that a savage, US sanctioned wave of targeted violence is imminent in East Ukraine to smash resistance to the corporate takeover it should be noted that all of the sound and fury about Putin's invasion is hogwash. The real invaders are Chevron, Cargill, Monsanto and the global finance mafia, all backed by the American political establishment. It is one hell of a competitive advantage when you can buy that kind of juice.

The Mounting Costs of the US Neocon Infestation
With the neocon instigated Ukraine coup, a proxy war against the hated Russian leader Vladimir Putin creating a now out of control cascade of events it is important to recognize what has set this into motion. That would be the same neoconservative ideology that was present under Bush and Cheney but has now emerged from the Iraq disaster more entrenched and virulently mutated than ever. If not stopped it will be the end of us.

Are Corporate Mercenaries Assisting Neo-Nazis in Ukraine?
The Obama foreign policy team and the Cold War relic NATO continue to double down on the coup installed government in Kiev. With "pro-Russian" resistance in East Ukraine building against the coming austerity and oppression the occupying government is desperate to put it down. Reports have begun to seep out, largely in Russian media that there are US corporate mercenaries working with Neo-Nazis to crush the uprising.

Dishonest Hysterics from Kerry Again Drag US Towards War
Secretary of State John Kerry, the grand marshal of the American fool's parade is again pitching lies and doing so in a hysterical manner to push for war with Russia. Never does he mention the Neo-Nazis backing the unelected US puppet regime, it is all innuendo about the Russians. Kerry is a member of Skull and Bones and the Wall St. elite that comprise it have had no historical qualms when it comes to dealing with Nazis.

The Pushback Against the Occupying Austerity Government in Ukraine Begins
It was inevitable that there would be pushback in Ukraine over the coming wave of crushing austerity enforced by the US-EU-NATO Axis of Evil installed puppet government in Kiev. With the move of protesters to occupy government buildings in the East the unelected "Yats" regime has sent forth the paramilitary goon squads against the "terrorists". Violence looms as the global finance mafia tries to lock down their gains.

Supersize This Putin: McDonalds Closes Crimean Locations
As the USA continues to be sucked into the neocon time warp of a return to the good old days of the Cold War the mighty economic sanctions against the hated and demonized Putin just got a set of teeth. McDonalds, the tip of the spear of American fast food imperialism is shutting down Crimean locations. Watch out Russia you're next!

Blowhard Mike Rogers a Perfect Fit for Talk Radio
In a bolt out of the blue House Intelligence Committee boss Mike Rogers announced that he will not run for another term. He will instead go to work in the roiling cauldron of hate that is right-wing talk radio. Being that Rogers was safely gerrymandered until his dying day his stepping down is very unusual. Did he finally go a bridge too far with his ongoing series of allegations sans proof or cross the line elsewhere?

Sashko Bily Killed as Night of the Long Knives Begins in Ukraine
The gunning down of Ukrainian Right Sector leader Oleksandr Muzychko aka Sashko Bily by the forces of the coup installed government could be the beginning of a purge of the ranks. With billions of dollars of US and western backing on the way, the thugs and neo-Nazis have outlived their usefulness. Time to clean it up for American corporations and the global finance mafia. But will it all lead to even more bloodshed?

High Crimes and Hogwash
Glowing with pride after a week of whacking the Putin pinata culminating in the ouster of Russia from the G8, Barack Obama turned his attention to the rogue NSA. The Obama regime is to call for an end to the bulk collection of telephone metadata in an attempt to quell criticism over NSA surveillance programs. Not mentioned is that the metadata is only the tip of the iceberg - the collection of content is the real outrage.

Oceania Has Always Been at War with Eastasia
It is of some interest that the now full blown international crisis over the US backed Ukraine coup d'etat and the resulting calls for military action come just when defense cuts were looming. The US never bothered to beat those swords back into plowshares post WW II after which the military industrial complex became an insatiable society destroying parasite. War with Russia will ensure that the money never stops flowing.

The US Establishment is Lying about Everything on Ukraine
Not to let a video showing US backed neo-Nazi members of the coup installed government in Kiev beating up on a television executive reveal the ugly truth, the neocon infested US media response is as predictable as it is dishonest. The drumbeat for war with Russia continues while the Obama administration and the corrupt US Congress prance merrily towards the edge of the abyss dragging everybody else along for the ride.

Be proud today America because as we now embark upon the neocon led great crusade against the demonic Vladimir Putin that we back a just cause. Never mind those fascist, neo-Nazi goons who just got famous by bursting into the office of a TV executive in Ukraine and beating him until he resigned. Just listen to the state-corporate media and hoist your American flags, it's not like Hitler would ever order such a thing.

Nice Job Neocons: Another Fine Mess in Ukraine
With the hated and demonized Vladimir Putin signing off on the annexation of Crimea and then blasting western hypocrisy the Ukrainian fiasco is now going to the next level. This looming disaster is largely the responsibility of the neocons who despite being prematurely written off after the Iraq debacle never really went away. Leading the squadrons of chickenhawks is of course William Kristol, our very own Joesph Goebbels.

Our De Facto President: John McCain Returns to Kiev
John McCain has again become for all intents and purposes the face and voice of the US. In his return to Kiev, where he earlier schmoozed with the Neo-Nazis who provided the muscle to overthrow the democratically elected government McCain once again stood as the de facto president of the US. Considering that he was as legitimately elected as Arseniy "Yats" Yatsenyuk he is an appropriate representative of the US rogue state.

Puppet Show: Obama Hosts 'Leader' Installed by Ukraine Coup d'Etat
The American war machine and the corrupt US state media have spent thousands of hours and untold amounts of money relentlessly pushing the big lie of their dirty coup d'etat in Ukraine. This week "Yats", the chosen man of the global finance mafia came to America hat in hand for the blood money to consolidate power in his neo-Nazi backed regime. War criminal in chief Barack Obama unsurprisingly welcomed him with open arms.

Oscar Puked: Americans Mesmerized by a Media Generated Cult of Celebrity
Rand Paul may have made news by quoting a Pink Floyd song at the carnival of ignorance and perversion that is CPAC but another song by Roger Waters is more apropos. In our current state of media assisted suicide we are slowly becoming "Amused to Death" as the cult of celebrity is the coin of the realm while we are dragged into an Orwellian world where war is peace etc. I have always have said that Orwell was an optimist.

Next War Criminal on Deck at the Washington Post: Condoleezza Rice
In keeping with the Putin bashing to justify the western backed overthrow of the democratically elected government in Ukraine the Washington Post continues to go to a very deep bench of war criminals to pontificate from the neocon oped page. The latest being Bush administration warmonger Condoleezza Rice who is given a forum to rail against the deposed president of Ukraine and also to shill for the Keystone XL pipeline.

Putin Flouts Obama as Neocons Stew
Barack Obama and John Kerry once again find themselves in an embarrassing place over their ill-advised rhetoric. Only a few months after the Syria "red line" fiasco now the dynamic duo are being schooled by veteran politician Vladimir Putin. The neocon U.S. foreign policy establishment may be able to push Iran around with threats of sanctions but Russia is not Iran and there is more to Ukraine than meets the eye.

Completely absent from the U.S. state-corporate media is any mention that the western instigated putsch in Ukraine was pulled off with the help of some of the most vile neo-Nazis in Eastern Europe. Traveling ambassador of the warfare state Senator John McCain, a cherished media hero personally met with extremists including Oleh Tyahnybok of the extremist Svoboda party. Goebbels himself would have been proud of the U.S. media.

A good number of these include private sexual materials passed between those who are consenting adults seeking to connect with like-minded law-abiding consenting adults.

Hurling ugly charges of "anti-Semitism" at critics as well as mobilizing his U.S. supporters, the big push for war on Iran and the stifling of free speech are his goals. It all may well backfire though as a young turk from within begins sizing up the crazy old man.

Invoking Nazi Horrors Eric Cantor Makes His Move
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is an ambitious man of great cunning and patience. He has for years been quietly sharpening the dagger that he has been waiting to plunge into the back of Speaker John Boehner and in an election year has his eyes on the prize. In a much hyped President's Day speech on foreign policy Cantor emptied the cache of WW II references and set himself up as the successor to the PNAC Bush-Cheney crowd.
