What about the Afghan Women! The following is an excerpt from a longer article I wrote in January 2015. President Obama had announced in December of 2014 that the war in Afghanistan was over for the U.S. and NATO--- responsibility was being turned over to the "Afghan forces", President Obama said.

"The Clash of Two Americas, the Unfinished Symphony", a book by Matthew Ehret "Two systems are before the world. One looks to pauperism, ignorance, depopulation, and barbarism; the other to increasing wealth, comfort, intelligence, combination of action, and civilization. One looks towards universal war; the other towards universal peace. One is the English system; the other we may be proud to call the American system"

The First World War, Cecile Rhodes and Conspiracy Facts The authors of The Hidden History, The Secret Origins of the First World War claim that it was Great Britain that started World War One, and not Germany. It is a convincing story. The authors George Docherty and James MacGregor call their book a conspiracy fact.

The Last Stalinist of the Soviet Union In 2005 Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenkowas dubbed " the last dictator in Europe" by President George W. Bush's Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. A better nom de plume for Lukashenko would be the Last Stalinist of the Soviet Union.

Medical Martial Law is Liberalism's Final Capitulation Liberals have made "liberal" a dirty word. They cannot hide behind the identity of progressive. There is nothing liberal or progressive about making bargains with the corporatists, fascists, and the corrupt power elites. It is time to bury the putrid body of the liberal class. It has already become a biohazard more dangerous than any virus.

The Veterans Health Administration is the Best Healthcare Anywhere! According to study after study, such as the Rand Corporationand the Annals of Internal Medicine, show that the Veterans Health Administration provides the best healthcare, has the best medical outcomes, the shortest wait-times, and does so at the lowest cost of any other large healthcare program anywhere.

Reply to Paul Craig Roberts' Question: "Is White Genocide Possible?" I find it offensive, dangerous and ludicrous for Paul Craig Roberts (PCR) to portray white people in the USA as an endangered species. His article "Is White Genocide Possible? ", and similar such articles, feed the paranoia of white supremacists, white nationalists and fascists. The former, white genocide, is fantasy; the latter is a real and present danger to the US.

Iran Should Never Trust a US Promise Again; nor should anybody else! During the 20th century the US has failed to honor its word on many agreements, such as the broken 1950's Geneva Agreements that led to the Korean War in 1950, and the Vietnam War that lasted for decades after World War Two. It is estimated that as many as 8 million people were killed in those two conflicts.

US and Canada are Backing an Elite White Minority in Venezuela The US and Canada are not supporting "the return of democracy" in Venezuela as they claim. Instead, they are following in their shameful histories of colonialism, imperialism, exploitation, illegal wars of aggression, and overthrowing governments.
