Will the Obama administration just ignore this or is the end of the latest chapter in Orwellian propaganda.
(15 comments) Daniel Ellsberg and Edward Snowden spoke today at the Hackers on Planet Earth X (HOPE X) conference in New York City. The crowds overflowed from the conference to Seventh Avenue.

Report of a sarin gas attack against civilians in Damascus foiled by the Syrian Army. Don't expect a UN investigation any time soon. Seymour Hersh was right.
(14 comments) Iraq's third largest city is captured by an extremist Muslim terrorist group and who comes to the rescue? Iran. We live in very strange times.
(20 comments) Is Ukraine President Petro Peroshenko still "Our Ukraine insider"? He played that role starting in 2006 and was briefed on Ukraine NATO membership by Hillary Clinton in 2009. Who is really running things in Kiev?
(19 comments) Turkey shut off Syria's water supply from the Euphrates River threatening the water supply for two million Syrians. Will the U.S. State Department call this a "human rights abuse" or an "unfortunate incident?"
(15 comments) What possible reason could the Obama administration have for supporting Ukraine's attack on its own citizens?
(8 comments) Turkish PM Erdogan went to the site of Turkey's largest mining disaster ever and dismissed the dead and disrespected their friends and families. How much longer can this tyrant run a major country.

(23 comments) We're perilously close to a tragic strategic blunder of epic proportions in the Ukraine crisis.

His take on this critical moment in history raises important points to us all.

(16 comments) The Ukrainian protester installed government is sending troops to the Eastern Ukraine to attack demonstrators for occupying buildings; exactly what the pro US-NATO protesters did last month.

(6 comments) Turkish PM Erdogan is like Richard III looking desperately for escape from his imminent demise. His path to survival may be a false flag attack on Syria. Erdogan set this up carefully over the past weeks. Will he be allowed to pull the trigger?
(2 comments) Turkish PM Erdogan banned Twitter and usage went up 33%. The PM is in a desperate struggle to stay in power after wire taps of his chronic corruption are delivered all over via Twitter.
(24 comments) Putin plays chess while Obama and Merkel play a weak game of checkers at best. The neoconservative festival in the Ukraine will soon have a head on crash with the realities of the big money interests. Bet on the Money Party.
(18 comments) Political change in the United States is an illusion. The same players executed the same policies in both the Bush and Obama administrations. Ultimately, it's the Money Party that calls the shots no matter who is (s)elected.
(3 comments) The finale of True Detective veered from the path of desolation and loss to one of enlightenment and a chance for peace. Rust Cohle escaped his demons with some help from preacher Joel Theriot's sermon in episode 3.
(6 comments) President Obama has lost contact with reality. He's issuing orders to the Crimea, Russia, and the world on the Ukraine. Is he delusional or just cynical in the pursuit narrow special interests?
(13 comments) Kerry's flight to the Ukraine is not male hysteria, it's a front for pure greed - justifying future defense spending.

(2 comments) Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan and his adult children were caught on audio tape hiding tens of millions from an anticipated police raid.

(5 comments) Turkey is boiling over with factional conflict within the ruling party fueled by charges of fraud, money laundering, and terrorist alliances -- all by the government of PM Erdogan
(5 comments) Turkey's PM Erdogan is under attack by his former ally, secretive Muslim leader Fethullah Gulen. Gulen is beholden to the U.S. government. Did the U.S. decide it was time for Erdogan to go?
(5 comments) Will there be any 'good' Syrian rebels left to provide credible representation at the January United States - Russia sponsored Geneva II peace conference?
(3 comments) Seymour Hersh provides inside evidence for what many suspected at the time. The case to attack Syria was based on a massive deception. One more reason to not trust and always verify what our leaders say.
(2 comments) The United States oil shale boom is just around the corner. It promises riches (for a few) and ongoing superpower status. But, at what cost?
(7 comments) President Obama's public opinion poll numbers are high considering his epic failures since September. What's propping them up?
(1 comments) Secretary of State Kerry's sudden sprint from Israel to Geneva for the Iran negotiations indicates there may be an historic opportunity for peace. Settle the war issues now to allow a response to the looming eco catastrophes. There's not much time left.
(7 comments) It's official! The world as we know it is over, finished. We're in for a long slide down a slope of suffering and destruction. There a bit of hope but those in charge will blow it. The International Panel on Climate Change made if official.
(3 comments) The Western powers saddled up to "rescue" Haiti and Syria using the United Nations as a front. Cholera in Haiti and polio in Syria are the outcomes. Some rescue. Some rescuers.
(1 comments) The Republicans nearly ruined the world economy and, while they were at it, they rescued President Obama from his miserable failure in Syria. Get ready for more low comedy in the months to come. Brought to you by the people who think they they've never been wrong about anything in their entire lives.
The incompetence and fraud committed by Congress on the shutdown and debt ceiling is all ... at our expense. They will do just fine. It is we, the people who will suffer.
(5 comments) The Speaker of the United States House of Representatives has the power to end the government shutdown and avoid the U.S. entering into default on October 17. Speaker John Boehner refuses to exercise that power. Why? Who will save us?
The predictions of disaster in Syria were made over a year ago. They turned out to be accurate. The Western powers and oil oligarchs knew this would happen, yet they pursued the attack on Syria. Shame on them.

(28 comments) Al Qaeda now has a chemical weapons program. Al Qaeda was caught buying chemicals to make sarin gas in Turkey. The administration must stop supporting the Syrian rebels since Al Qaeda dominates that group. How hard is it for Obama and Kerry to grasp this?
Leaks and the UN created disaster in Libya compromise the UN's report on chemical weapons in Syria. Military conflict by miscalculation is the real danger.
(2 comments) The people spoke through the eloquence of unity to stop the attack on Syria and focus on problems at home. The war merchants will not give up. Vigilance and strength are the keys to defeating them again.
(22 comments) The president was saved from political catastrophe by Russian president Vladimir Putin's offer to take Syrian chemical weapons. That wasn't acknowledged in his speech. We were told the military threat made it all happen and he'd ask for it again if Syria doesn't cooperate.
(16 comments) The Obama administration finally got what it wants, a free fire zone at Syria to tip the civil war in the favor of Christian killing, jihadist, Al Qaeda dominated Syrian rebels. Mission accomplished.
Congress must obey the will of the people and realities of restraint by stopping the authorization to attack Syria. The House of Representatives is the place to stop the madness.
(1 comments) President Obama's assessment that the Syrian government used chemical weapons is classified. As a result, we get only assertions. "Trust me" he says. That's not enough.
(1 comments) President Obama couldn't launch even one cruise missile before multiple U.S. officials began undermining the intelligence report that was to form the basis for confidence in military action against the Syrian government.
(4 comments) It is not "too late" to investigate the chemical weapons incident in Syria. To say otherwise, is a rush to judgment and a deliberate, premeditated rush to war.
(1 comments) Virginia governor Bob McDonnell is under investigation for taking $145,000 in gifts and favorable loans from a CEO looking for help. Now that things are heating up, it looks like the right-wing protege of Pat Robertson is going to blame his wife. Not nice.
(1 comments) The president and Congress are united about supporting the invasion of Syria and doing little other than whine about Egypt. They fail to mention the full scale assault on Egyptian and Syrian Christians. Where's the outrage?
(7 comments) Working trumps retirement by choice and necessity. With more and more citizens working right through their retirement, the trend may make Social Security stronger than ever.
(7 comments) President Obama's behavior toward Russia is petulant. He's erratic in the Middle East by supporting Al Qaeda aligned groups. Prism is pure paranoia. Is he losing it?
(3 comments) The Syrian Support Group was the 'go to' NGO for funding Syrian rebels. Sanctioned by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the group had it all. Then the curtain was lifted and it turned out it was about oil.
(9 comments) The government fears the release of information by Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden. They say it aids the enemy. As it turns out, we the people are the enemy the government fears most getting this information.
