Breitbart's death needs to be investigated for the sake and safety of ALL journalists (9 comments)
This is not about political ideology or whether or not you supported Andrew Breitbart's views on certain issues, liked his personality, or agreed with his methods. This is about a man who died-- a man who made many enemies and who was threatening to bring down the person who holds the most powerful official position in the world, as well as any people who had a stake in keeping him there.

People, Not God, Kill Children in Wars (2 comments)
When one loses a child, belief that there was a divine reason for it sometimes helps fill the emptiness. But what about situations in which the tragedy was not God's will, but rather resulted from the will of men? What if it happened because of a war that didn't need to be fought? To those who desire wars in Iran and Syria, or don't care that they're coming, it boils down to a simple question-- what the hell is wrong with you?

Sun Tzu's advisement of noncompliance...words for the U.S. Military and Police (1 comments)
"There are roads which must not be followed, armies which must not be attacked, towns which must not be besieged, positions which must not be contested, commands of the sovereign which must not be obeyed". Though words written in ancient times are open to a variety of modern interpretations, the advice offered in this passage is applicable in a very specific way to our current situation in the United States.

Mossad False Flag Story-- Disinfo, or Open Door to Bigger Issue (3 comments)
The purpose here is not to question the sincerity of Perry's journalism or accuse him of being part of a disinformation conspiracy, but simply to look at the news of the alleged Mossad false flag in comparison to the past actions of the United States government, as well as those of Israel's, and point out the bigger issue it reveals.
Forgiving Student Loan Debt Is Not Supported By America's " General Assembly" (9 comments)
With Americans' student loan debts reaching 1 trillion dollars this year, there have been a number of noisy people calling for the federal government to erase student loan debts entirely in order to create "stimulus' for the economy. Forgetting economic arguments go for a moment, nobody who is calling for this student loan forgiveness seems to be addressing the obvious problem with doing it--it's not fair! And it never can be.
Is China Encircling India?
On August 10, the Times of India reported that the Chinese military was participating in joint war games with Pakistan 25 km from the border of India's western Rajasthan region. Now the same publication has claimed that the Chinese are working on India's eastern border by supplying the ULFA with T-81 rifles and IEDs.
Obama would rather cut Social Security and Medicare than Wars and Empire (4 comments)
Regardless of one's beliefs about the constitutionality of these programs, both sides of the debate should be quick to notice the priorities of the President, and his so called opposition, turning to programs so many Americans have already paid into and are depending on instead of first looking overseas at the world empire that is bankrupting us all.
Mr. President, U.N. Resolutions do not trump U.S. Law (1 comments)
The same day that the media announced that 10 congressmen were suing President Obama over his violation of the War Powers Act while executing his war in Libya-- the White House released a report attempting to justify why congressional approval was not needed in order to carry it out. In the following article I will provide a summary of the 32 page PDF report and rebuttals to the White House's key arguments.
Writers attacking Rashard Mendenhall invoke neurotic emotion and lies, showing they know nothing about 9/11 (1 comments)
Though it's clear a large number of political & scientific journalists have chosen to either ignore the inconvenient evidence, lie to themselves, or participate in a cover-up, the clearly demonstrated ignorance of America's sports writers most likely has less to do with intellectual dishonesty than the fact that most of the country itself has fallen under a dangerous net of neurotic mass denial of which they are a part.

The Corporate State's Public Image Execution of Rashard Mendenhall (1 comments)
In a country that quickly forgives athletes who abuse women and do drugs, one who dampens the jubilation of the bin Laden death celebrations by holding a mirror to America's face, and who points out the obvious impossibility of the government's explanation for the Twin Towers' collapse, is essentially spat upon and crucified for all to see.
"No" on the death photos? How about releasing the burial at sea video? (5 comments)
The President needs to address the burial video as well as the death photos, since his excuse doesn't apply to this important piece of alleged documentation. There would be nothing gruesome in this evidence since the body was supposedly covered. The longer Obama waits to release this video (if he ever does)...the more time passes...the more people will believe that it's a fake.
Media Gaslights Public by Making a Hero of Teenager Who Pulled Off Pregnancy Hoax
What happened in Gaby's school was not a lesson about stereotypes, but a demonstration of mass mental manipulation, quietly backed by an educational institution with only a few people at the top, middle, and bottom rungs aware that it was taking place. It's a model which the big boys and girls in the real world of government and corporate control can pin a ribbon on.
Obama's re-election campaign begins with more empty rhetoric (1 comments)
From "Hope", "Change We Can Believe In", and "Yes We Can" to "It Begins With Us" the Obama campaign has fired the first shots of the president's 2012 re-election fight with another commercial that demonstrates the complete lack of respect he and his staff have for the intelligence of the American people.
Global Brush Fires That Could Burn Down The Forest...
Despite the comic book version of history we're taught in school that major global conflicts like the two World Wars started because of one event or one central bad guy, the reality is that like any disaster these events begin as localized conflicts that explode as the circle around them closes, alliances are made, and old powers decline as new ones rise.

Hapless Players in History's Trilogy of Global Government (1 comments)
The Islamic boogeyman is alive and well in the words of war-mongering propagandists, given fresh life by the chaos of rebellion. And while the revolutions abroad conveniently give neocons an excuse to talk about further expanding the U.S. military's reach overseas, they also provide an easy scapegoat, superficially explaining why commodities like food and oil will continue to become more expensive.
RFID to be used to track sheep...and sheeple too (1 comments)
Why do ancient likenesses of King Tut portray him holding a rod and a staff? Perhaps he and his people saw him as a shepherd leading an empire of sheep--" a description applied to monarchs throughout history. It's a metaphor that can't be dismissed when considering society's latest push to track and trace every aspect of human life, and which makes a short report from the Farmer's Weekly Interactive this week quite symbolic.

Obama's "non-combat" troops engage in combat in Baghdad. 12 people killed. (5 comments)
As the war in Iraq continues, the White House and the big cable news networks are using clever semantics in another war--" the one against reality in the fight for the perceptions of the American people. Many Americans want to believe that the President is making good on his campaign promise to end the war in Iraq, while in truth he is simply overseeing it as the military moves Iraq's occupation into the next phase.

Glenn Beck Cult Holds Creepy Revival at Lincoln Memorial in DC (3 comments)
With Beck being inserted into the mainstream consciousness as the "patriot" opposition to Barack Obama and his gang of globalist thugs, so many who now wave the Gadsden flag and give lip service to the Constitution watch Beck with fawning adoration, having forgotten or choosing to ignore the kind of person the man really is.

WikiLeaks documents-- disinformation or not-- are being used for anti-Iran propaganda (10 comments)
It could be that the White House is looking for a quick resolution to the fighting and to cut a deal with the Taliban, allowing them to slowly conquer the country again during a U.S. draw-down, "forced" by public outrage over the leak...allowing the U.S. to keep the spoils of war while at the same focusing its military resources on the next target--" Iran.
Video Game CEO cheers Digital Tyranny and Technological Enslavement (1 comments)
In this video Schell speaks of the potential for government awarding credits to people who walk to work or take public transportation, as well as awarding credits to parents whose children get good grades in public schools. He also speaks of corporations monitoring our habits, such as how often we brush our teeth, and even their possible digital interaction with our dreams.

BP Gulf Disaster & Iran Sanctions to Surge Oil Revenue of U.S. Puppet Iraq
By imposing sanctions on Iran and politicizing the Gulf disaster the Obama administration has managed to make George Bush's war an even more profitable one, scoring another victory for the Democrat-Republican political tag team whose foreign policy remains unchanged, despite the presidential election sideshow that was played out in 2008.
Swallowing the Official Account of 9/11: A Condition for Running for Office (13 comments)
In a move that illustrates exactly why Glenn Beck has painstakingly tried to portray himself over the past year as some kind of man of the people while hosting a show on the infamous Fox News Channel that cheered the War in Iraq, he turned an interview with Debra Medina, a candidate for the TX Governer seat, into a PR ambush on her and the 9/11 Truth movement.
America: the bullies now run the school
In every society there is a sinister side. There is a class of people that want to rule over everyone else. The dark spiritual seeds that produce tyrannts are spread equally around the world without respect to borders. And as the sun shines more and the rain falls heavier in some lands than on others, some governmental systems make it more easy for these emperor wannabes to gain power over everyone else around them.
The "Ultimate Sacrifice" vs. the minimum sacrifice...thoughts after Memorial Day (6 comments)
*We honor the dead, but what we do to keep there from being more of them?
*Why do we celebrate war and not treat it like we would an earthquake or a pandemic?
*Those of you casually reading this who like to talk about how they're sick of the war and badmouth those who still support it, what are you doing...?

Olbermann and Garafalo Accuse Tea Party Protesters of Being Racist (18 comments)
*showing how mainstream media exploits racism to push a financial agenda*
A few days ago Keith Olbermann did an interview with comedian Janeane Garafalo in which they wrote off the tea parties that were held this week and the protestors who attended them as being motivated only by a racist hatred of Obama and stating that the protestors somehow lacked intelligence because they questioned the president's policies.
