It's Crunch Time for America
For years I have been writing about how our government has been hijacked from the people and how special interests have been manipulating the media to fulfill the agenda of the Military Industrial Complex. You can call it the Military Industrial Corporate Complex or any new-age nuance, but it is still the thing that Dwight President David Eisenhower described in his last addresses to the nation.

This Is World War III
I first realized that World War III was about to take place just before the Olympic Games in Sochi. The coverage of the games hardly mentioned the sports and competitions, instead, it was a non-stop demonetization of Russia and Vladimir Putin. I heard diatribes about how unprepared the Russians were to host the games, how much money they spent on them and how the games were bound to fail.

Who is Paying for Hillary's Campaign? Here are some facts.
This information is for all of you Democrats that believe Hillary Clinton will be a "Progressive" woman that will fight for the Middle Class as she has recently espoused. She is just trying to take away some momentum away from the Sanders Campaign by parroting some of his views.

America Needs a Social Revolution!
We hated the Soviet Union because it spied on it's own people and made war on Afghanistan and occupied Eastern Europe. I would like to ask you all a question, are we not doing the same thing? Can someone to tell me what the difference is between the old Soviet Union and America today?

Bernie Sanders Greatest Fault
Let me begin by giving you some startling facts.In 1945, our defense budget, even though we were fighting WWII when they drew it up in 1944, was 962 million dollars.. Adjusting this number for inflation at 1221.9%the figure is 127.2 billion dollars. Today we spend 637 billion dollars! That is over five times what we spent in 1944!

A Solution to the Quagmire in the Middle East
In a nation that prides itself as a bastion of democracy and free speech, the truth is that the American people are being misled by their own government. The majority of Americans who listen to the mainstream news outlets are being fed government propaganda that has no relation to the truth. This is also shameful.

Obama Really Went Too Far at the UN.I Call Him Out On It.
It is obvious to me that the United States has absolutely no idea what it is doing. It decries foreign involvement in other nations, bur seemingly reserves that right for itself. Ask the Libyan refugees how it's going for them after NATO's jet's bombed them back to the stone age. They didn't even get a chance to vote on it!

Responsibility to Protect? What Happened to That?
. Hardly a word was said when we bombed the Libyan army and air force, their power plants and water supply infrastructure. It seems that the participating NATO air forces has a ball getting real time practice waging war from the safety of the Mediterranean Sea, launching from American aircraft carriers, and coming back to hot chow and a comfortable bunk.

Lately I've seen a dramatic change in the attitude of the American people.This article will not be a political rant or a tirade against this modern American facsimile of the American "New Roman Empire", rather it will delve into the mindset of the American public.

Bernie Needs To Speak Truth To Power (and try to stay alive)
Still, with all the great things Senator Sanders says about how the Middle Class is getting screwed by the corporate state, there are a few things that he doesn't talk about. If he reads this article, or anyone on his campaign staff reads this, there are a few questions Sanders needs to address before I join the I Love Bernie Crowd.

Doing What the PTB Want Us to Do
Therefore, I put this thought to them: If Bernie Sanders endorses Hillary Clinton, and becomes a supporter of the Democrats, then just get the hell away from that party. Meanwhile, we should all be supporting Sanders in what he is saying now. The fact is that they are dividing us by employing trolls and gatekeepers to keep his message from reaching the people on the street.

Sanders, Our Best Bet
Here is the question I would like to throw back at my good friend David Swanson who believes that supporting Sanders is a no-win situation; How David, do we get a majority of self-centered, brainwashed Americans who by and large are disgusted with their government to actually take the time to become activists? The truth is that it's not going to happen anytime soon.

Why Continue to Try and Change America's Path?
When I first started writing I was just realizing that after a 30 year intellectual coma (a hang-over from the Vietnam experience), that if people could only realize what I was realizing, that we could straighten out the mess we has put our nation and the World in. How very naive.

My Redneck Friends. They are a Lot Like You.
I've been in the real world lately in South Carolina. I joined a pool league and started meeting people from all walks of life. Still, everyone I hang with is proud to be a redneck. I don't care. It's a funny thing that I get along with these people are a proud bunch of Southern Boys, no doubt.

Blowback is a b*tch
Since 9/11 we have vilified Muslims. We have waged war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and now in Syria. It isn't just the United States, France was one of the countries that provided aircraft to bomb Libya and sent their Army into Mali. It seems like it is a free for all in the Middle East and Muslim Africa. If you are Muslim, you are a target.

News Flash!: America Sucks
So this is the "New America". This is the exceptional, indispensable nation that the World cannot live without. I don't know about you, but I sincerely believe that the time has come to either change this rotten- to-the-core-system we live under, or it's time to get the hell out of Dodge. This America sucks. I don't see anything good about it anymore. It stinks like dead fish.

Does the United States believe that it is so powerful that it can intimidate Russia? This is hubris at its most dangerous level. To think that we can engage in a war with Russia is madness. There is no way in hell that NATO can muster an army that could defeat Russia. We are not talking about Syria or Iraq or Libya, we are talking about Russia that has a nuclear arsenal larger than ours.

Strange Days Indeed!
No nation is exceptional. No nation is indispensable. All nations are exceptional in their own ways and all nations are indispensable as the human race now lives in a world that has a global economy that is interconnected more now than at any other time in history. The fact is, we are all connected and not just through the mainstream media. We talk to people from other nations through Skype, Facebook and Twitter.

What is the Real Truth?
I have a few questions about all of this. President Obama has told us that we must participate because we are the "indispensible" nation. We have the most powerful armed forces and the best led military "that the World has ever known". He says that it is up to us to lead the way. I'm wondering why Turkey, a nation with the largest military in NATO, doesn't get involved?

Who Gets Left Holding the Bag?
The problem here is that when the top 20% holds 90% of the wealth of this nation, just who are going to buy all these products imported into the US? Just about the only thing that Americans buy anymore are cars to get them to their crappy jobs. Seems like the government forgot about building public transportation. It's a good thing too, or else they wouldn't have any consumer spending at all.

We'll Never Learn
Making a video of a person having his head severed is very dramatic. I wonder what IS has to gain from exposing this to the World? I mean when America bombs the crap out of a wedding party in Yemen or Somalia, they don't show the limbless dead babies and severed heads lying around the craters for the World to see.

War from the Shadows
Today, we have gone well past the Orwellian descriptions of the Ministry of Truth written about in the novel "1984". Today we have a much more sophisticated way to disseminate information that will enable the rulers and ruled alike, to come to the conclusions that the people who wield the real power, want them to come around to.

The Truth About Ukraine
Russia didn't start this conflict. The United States in tandem with some European nations did. The goal of the United States, regardless of what the government and the talking heads in the media tell you, is to bring the Ukraine into the Western fold, have the IMF and the World Bank come in and rape this nation by making loans that they can never repay.

Discontent is Becoming Epidemic
The American people are quite aware of a great many things like huge corporations that pay no income taxes, like the fact that we jail more people than any nation on Earth, that we are one of the last industrialized nations without universal healthcare, the suicide rate among veterans is mind boggling and that the Occupy Movement was here one day and gone the next.

Before You "Thank Them for Their Service"...
The real way to honor those that died is to honor their comrades lived and laughed and that fought beside them. We are not doing that no matter how much people "thank them for their service".

We Can Change The Mainstream Media!
These are the kinds of things the news media should be telling us. Forgive me if I'm telling you things you already know, there are people reading this article where these thoughts never occurred to them. This is why I'm trying to reach out to make them aware that we are only getting half the story from the media.

Another Sucessful American Propaganda Effort
Russia needs a civil war or a confrontation in Ukraine like most people need cancer. There is nothing in it for them. They sell natural gas to Ukraine and I'm sure they don't want that income to stop. The provinces that are protesting against the people that pulled the coup in Kiev were given to Ukraine by Russia. Kerry is lying, Obama is lying and nobody seems to care.

Obama and Kerry; Out of Their League
This is all a big game for the big bankers and the military industrial complex. This is a chance for them to make big profits off the hapless circumstance of a nation in turmoil. Turmoil that we (meaning the US and the EU caused).

I Didn't Sign Up for This
I had a different mindset.
Today I am looking at the World that my service, along with millions of other people helped to create. The least I can say is that I am aghast at what we have helped to create and I apologize for my part in what we have succeeded in achieving; a near fascist nation with the military power to subjugate every nation on the planet.

Governence Under Delusion (GUD)
There is a difference between not knowing what is going on and not wanting to know what's going on. When one does not want to see the reality of what is happening, that is a conscious decision. This is a decision that I see my fellow citizens making every day.

Playing with Fire and Burning the World
We are desperately trying to encircle Russia so that they are incapable of responding to a first nuclear strike by the US by putting missiles around Russia that would destroy their missile before they could launch a retaliatory strike. This is a catastrophe, not just for Russia, but for the World. We are playing with fire and it could burn us all... literally.

Rob Kall, Publisher of OEN, Guests on "Tim Gatto, Uncut and Uncensored".
I always enjoy Rob's insights and I can understand why OEN has such wide support in the Progressive community. I like the fact that the site is a little more to the "left" than many other so-called "progressive" sites that are really nothing more than cheerleaders for the so-called "centrist" Democrats that seem to slip more to the right with each passing year (this is my own opinion of course).

Military Madness, The TPP and The Empire
I'm just making suggestions, asking questions and informing my fellow Americans on issues they should be aware of. I believe that most Americans are afraid to question authority and those that are not are lulled into a false sense of security by the mainstream media. Still there are many Americans that are justifiably as outraged as I am by the behavior of our government.

Obama Hardball Interview: A Waste of My Time
This is the reason that Americans no longer trust either major political party. We understand all too well, even with the Presidents best assurances that he is working for the "American people", who he is really working for.

A Different Wind is Blowing
People that are usually pretty fast on the uptake still fall for the "blame game" that the people who really run things in this country want us to play. The only reason that they allow two political parties is because it gives the people an illusion that they have a choice in who represents them. The choice is always between the lesser of two evils, but in most people's eyes that is better than no choice at all, right?

What Does "National Security" Really Mean? Depends on Who You Talk To. Redux.
The trouble with the above scenario is that we have plenty to worry about. The middle class of America is quickly becoming extinct. The fact is that 10% of the population owns 90% of the wealth in this country. The sad part of this is that they are not investing it back into the American economy.

Arranging the Deck Chairs While Death Comes from Japan
Today is my 63rd birthday. I have three Grandchildren and some Nephews and Nieces. The situation for me is this, by the time the radiation from Fukushima reaches me, it will take some time to affect my wife and I. My Grandchildren and other young people will not be so lucky. Already on the West Coast the milk is radioactive. It is below the "safety threshold" right now so you don't really hear about it.

The Fix is In. The Revolution is Coming.
So how is this farce going to end? I can see it now. Obama will put ALL entitlements except Obamacare on the chopping block. The people in our government will ask all Americans to make a huge sacrifice in order to keep our nation afloat. The government will loot the Social Security trust fund to keep their military afloat and give us the finger.

The Two-Party System is a Farce
President Obama, a Constitutional scholar and lawyer knows what time it is. He will absolutely will not allow the Federal Government to default. The Republican extremists know this and are trying to force his hand. He is damned if he does let the government default and he will be damned by using an Executive Order to keep it running.

Why Are the Majority of Americans Pissed?
Obama wants to fix the World and the poor bastard can't even fix Detroit. How does he think that makes him look in the eyes of the World? This is a President that should be on anti-depressants. If I were Obama I might just go into the Oval Office , close the door and put a shotgun in my mouth. The World has never seen a bigger loser than Barack Obama. This is a guy that won the Presidency (twice) and lost his soul.

Obama: Shrewd or Just Stupid?
If the Congress fails to authorize this strike (and that appears likely), the President could emulate the British Prime Minister David Cameron with an "I get it" remark. This would allow him to extricate the United States out of the Middle East where nothing is completely white or black or good or bad.

Be the Change
Even though this President has committed an impeachable offense, notice that the "opposition party" has said nothing. This just illustrates how the corporate duopoly really works. The only time that the "opposition party" complains is when it involves side issues like immigration or women's rights. As far as foreign policy goes, the administration uses John McCain to represent America to Egypt.

US to Supply Syrian Rebels with Heavy Weapons
Americans are being railroaded into another lose/lose situation in the Middle-east to stop the political hemorrhaging here in America. This is unacceptable and Americans should see this as just what it is. War in order to keep dissent to a minimum is an old trick. People need to look at this for what it really is, something thrown into the mix to keep our eyes off the ball.

Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures
The question before us is what are we as a nation going to do about it? How long has our government been spying on us and when did it start? Most importantly, what can we do about it? Can we bring all of the people involved to trial? Of course not, this will be just another blip on the radar for the government. From now on, they will be more careful.

America's Greatest Challenge
Contrary to what the MSM tells us, most people are not idiots. I think that most Americans can look at their lives and pretty much come to this conclusion; they are not living as well as their parents did. There are many Americans who really don't believe that the new American "normal" of working two part-time jobs with no health benefits isn't a "be all, end all" situation.

Wrong is Wrong, No Matter Who Does It
This kind of behavior is just plain wrong. What really bothers me is what the PTB did to the Occupy movement. If there are so-called "Progressives" that wish to defend Obama and his cronies, they might just wish to take a minute to reflect on how they crushed the most promising populist movement in the 21st Century.

The American "Helplessness Syndrome" and How to Defeat It
The hard-liners in the Republican Party say that it isn't the government's job to coddle people that can't make it in today's society. They have nurtured and reinforced the meme that everyone in America has an equal chance at grabbing that big brass ring, and if they can't, then it is their own fault, any other reason that is given is just an excuse.

If Truth is Treason: Bradley Manning
The truth is something that needs to be told. Manning, I believe, is ready to accept whatever punishment is doled out, but I believe that the punishment should be measured. The truth is that Manning put his personal security at risk to tell the public what the truth really was. This is an exceptional person. I don't believe he is a traitor, rather I think of him as a patriot.
Tuesday, May 7, 2013 Sanford and Change in South Carolina
How many times will we be stabbed in the back before we realize that they just don't care about us? A good example is Mark Sanford. Why must he suck off the government teat for another two years? Who told him to be a professional politician? Can't he get a real job? These people drive me crazy. They show distain for the people that elect them and the people turn around and reelect them. This is called slave mentality.

These sociopaths in power don't care about those in Syria dying over their diabolical plans. We all know how this will end. More people will die. Eventually we will use military force. Once that happens, it will become a quagmire. This could become Obama's legacy. It could become World War III.

America: Running Out of Time
The two prime issues that every American should care deeply about is the disparity of Wealth in America and The Two-Party System, both are interconnected and usurp democracy in any form.

What's Really Going On in Korea
Don't think that our government is in any way dreading an attack from North Korea. The fact is" this would play right into the hands of the American Empire. While the United States is not publically supporting any provocations against the North Korean regime right now, they did send nuclear-capable B2 Bombers from the US to fly over the Korean Peninsula. This provocation really started the ball rolling.

Chavez will leave a void that will surely be missed. We can only hope that the United States stays out of the politics in that nation and allows the Venezuelan people to decide their own future without our county's interference. I can only hope that we learned our lesson in the coup that removed Chavez from power before the people rose up and had him reinstated.
Monday, February 11, 2013 Will the Right to a Trial of Our Peers Be Usurped?
Surveillance drones are already being used in this man-hunt. The question that I would like to pose here is that if they have a shot, will an armed drone be used to take this individual down? If this happens, will they give him a chance to give himself up, or will this just be another indiscriminate murder by another governmental agency seeking to destroy its enemies without judicial process?
