The Suleimani assassination has evoked typical fleeting reactions by peace activists whose ineffective methods have failed since the Vietnam War. We must do more to awaken deadened psychological faculties in the general public to protect the world from our endless, highly profitable-for-some, bipartisan imperial violence, beginning with truth about relentlessly dehumanized peoples targeted for mass murder and resource theft.

This questions the credibility of Amnesty International's report on the Saydnaya prison in Syria, apparently the latest propaganda effort to demonize Assad, following an oft-repeated formula, strategically timed to undermine Assad's advantage entering peace negotiations, extrapolating wild conclusions from hearsay by anonymous sources in Turkey where the Western/Gulf State mercenaries have gathered.

Rapidly escalating climate change is the most crucial threat faced by all humanity but received scant attention in our political theater of the absurd, aka presidential election debates between candidates half the electorate were excluded from choosing. Both main party candidates are wholly unsuitable and the Green Party alone proposes revolutionary policies commensurate with the challenge. We cannot afford further delay.

Describes control of the public mind as key to all the empire's operations, focused on crude demonization of targeted leaders and gross distortions of history to justify illegal and ruinous wars. The US public must learn to recognize, deconstruct and repudiate media propaganda and by doing so rid ourselves of psychopathic rulers.

Completion of preceding article describing Clinton administration's secret sponsorship of Kagame's wars to secure resource control in Africa and Hillary's lack of moral qualification for the office she seeks.

The Clinton conjugal crimes against humanity go back at least two decades, with the African atrocities arguably the worst as well as the least known. We must review Hillary's job application carefully, comprehensively and longitudinally since she is supremely unqualified to be granted any further responsibility for the welfare of this country and the safety of the world community.

This follows my earlier exposes of the Clinton crime team with accounts of their lack of any national loyalty, allowing control of US uranium deposits by Russia and transfer of missile and satellite technology to China, plundering the US Treasury, US resources and US taxpayer-supported technology for their personal enrichment.

There is a lack of meaningful distinction between our two major parties, both serving the unelected corporate state, defined by Sheldon Wolin as "inverted totalitarianism." We must assert ourselves as citizens, proactively determine our national agenda and choose our administrators (not "leaders") of that agenda. Only Sen. Sanders meets acceptable criteria, has volunteered for the job, and demonstrated elective capacity.

Describes hidden role of the Clinton administration in the Rwandan genocide and subsequent wars in central Africa to control mineral resources, and suspicions of corruption following the Haiti earthquake by Hillary's State Dept and the Clinton Foundation. Emerging revelations from Hillary's emails and other evidence would make her exceptionally vulnerable to effective GOP attack as the Democratic nominee.
(5 comments) SHARE Saturday, May 21, 2016 The Hillary Gang Wants to Cut a Deal
Hillary is whistling audibly in the dark and her deeply worried party wants a settlement with almost 1,000 delegates still unpledged and Hillary's increasing political liabilities, any one of which could torpedo her candidacy at any time. These liabilities in addition to her weak showing against Trump in polls could cause the superdelegates to switch for personal and party survival. Dare they risk betraying the voters will?
(3 comments) SHARE Monday, May 16, 2016 We are Seeing Revolution Arising. Can We Stay the Course?
Describes evidence of revolution predicted by Chris Hedges, the urgent need for a third party bringing significant change, and Sanders likely success running if necessary as an Independent based on political science research and evidence of widespread voter disaffection with our existing political system. This will require pressure from below and refusal of Sanders supporters to support Clinton, who is weaker against Trump.
(8 comments) SHARE Thursday, March 24, 2016 Blind Loyalty to the Clinton Brand Needs Re-Examination
Reviews track records of Clinton administration and Hillary as Secretary of State to caution primary voters. This challenges the successful marketing of the Clinton brand to Black voters, documenting a Clinton legacy destructive to Black communities as well as racist foreign policies destructive to Latin American and Arab societies. Hillary would remain a reliable agent of domestic colonialism and neoliberal imperialism.
