The 1776 Declaration of Independence stated that when a long train of abuses by those in power evidence a design to reduce the rights of people to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, it is the peoples right, in fact their duty to engage in a revolution.
and ….. JFK in his own words !
In a speech to the Newspaper Publishers Association in 1961, President Kennedy said:
“No president should fear public scrutiny of his program, for from that scrutiny comes understanding, and from that understanding comes support or opposition; and both are necessary. . . . Without debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed, and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law makers once decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment.”
Abraham Lincoln said, just before his assassination:
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country...Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."

Have you ever come away discouraged after trying to talk about prepping with friends or family members that just don't seem to be interested? Over the years, I have heard countless excuses from people for why they aren't getting prepared for what is about to happen to America. Some of the excuses, like a lack of money, are definitely legitimate. Bu […]

Why did so many Israeli voters switch their allegiance to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just before this week's election?

You can argue that the 1990s were a halcyon period for the old, but you can rest assured that being old in 2040 will be very unpleasant indeed. This isn't just a US-oriented problem; it's more or less true for the world as a whole. - Martin Hutchinson

Nové informace, uveřejněné chorvatským deníkem Slobodna Dalmacija, uvádí, že francouzský stát byl zodpovědný za útoky, ke kterým došlo v Paříži v lednu a listopadu 2015. Buď francouzské úřady předtím infiltrovaly skupiny, které útoky provedly, a nezasáhly, aby jim zabránily, nebo byly přímo zapojeny do organizování útoků. V každém případě je třeba zjistit, k […]

Na jedné straně francouzská vláda mobilizuje veškerá svá média, aby udržela soustředění své populace na útoky z 13. listopadu. Na druhé straně, spolu s Izraelem, zahajuje novou válku v Iráku a Sýrii. Cílem již není svrhnout sekulární syrský režim, ani zničit jeho armádu, ale vytvořit koloniální stát na hranici mezi Irákem a Sýrií, řízený Kurdy, aby se uplatn […]
Válka, jež v pátek vtrhla do Paříže, šokuje řadové Francouze o to víc, že mají mizivé tušení, čím ji vyvolala jejich vlastní vláda, píše Thierry Meyssan. U nás se uvedl už knihou Velký podvod – žádné letadlo na Pentagon nespadlo (2002). Teď nahlíží do „tajných operací francouzské vlády v arabském světě“. „Jejích nemístných aliancí s diktátory ze Zálivu.“ I p […]
„Vojenská intervence Moskvy v Sýrii není jen zvratem, šířícím paniku v řadách sil džihádu. Současné potence ruské armády demonstruje v reálné válce i celému okolnímu světu,“ konstatuje francouzský publicista Thierry Meyssan. Česky se uvedl už titulem Velký podvod – žádné letadlo na Pentagon nespadlo (2002). Bushovu říkanku o 11. září strhla jako domek z kare […]
V Sýrii neválčí „dvě odlišné komunity, ale dva společenské projekty“. Na „jedné straně moderní, sekulární Sýrie, která etnickou, náboženskou a politickou diverzitu respektuje“. A „na druhé ideologie Muslimského bratrstva“. Tedy soldatesky, „usilující o obnovu otomanského kalifátu prostředky džihádu“, píše francouzský publicista Thierry Meyssan. Česky debutov […]
Liberální jestřábi a neokonzervastivci nebyli schopni vyprovokovat konfrontaci s Ruskem, pro kterou byli cvičeni během studené války. Konečně převládl hlas rozumu. Zatímco probíhají důvěrná vyjednávání ve snaze skoncovat s krizí na Ukrajině, Rusko a Čína se připravují přesvědčit Spojené státy a jejich spojence, aby se zúčastnily globální aliance proti isláms […]
Intervence CSTO (Organizace Smlouvy o kolektivní bezpečnosti) proti terorismu v Iráku a v Sýrii může být začátkem světového pořádku založeného na spolupráci a obraně civilního obyvatelstva, nebo naopak, období konfrontace mezi Východem a Západem, ve kterém Západ otevřeně podporuje terorismus. Oproti populární víře je toto nasazení vojsk cíleno méně na obranu […]
V Levantě právě došlo k hluboké a významné změně – Ruská armáda v Sýrii začala s nasazením proti terorismu. Ač Rusko od rozpuštění Sovětského svazu na mezinárodní scéně absentovalo, a i když to dělá opatrně, tak právě vytvořilo Rusko-syrskou komisi, která začíná s dodávkami zbraní, sdílením zpravodajství a s posíláním poradců. A to všechno je více méně koord […]
V poslední době byl mezinárodní tisk plný zvěstí o zahájení vojenské operace proti Sýrii. Thierry Meyssan, který již veřejně odsoudil manipulaci generálem Johnem Allenem a jeho přáteli, jejichž cílem je sabotovat dohody USA s Íránem, znovu nahlíží do absurdity tohoto útoku. Vysvětluje, proč strategická podpora nabízená Ruskem a Čínou sekulární Sýrii není dos […]
The anti-war movement desperately needs libertarian leadership. And the libertarian movement urgently needs to be strongly anti-war.

Here’s my twenty-first-century rule of thumb about this country: if you have to say it over and over, it probably ain’t so.

For someone like me who can still remember a moment when Americans assumed that was […] The post The US Military Bombs in the […]
I try to be optimistic, and while sometimes it’s hard, I usually succeed in taking the long view that the case for peace and liberty will ultimately triumph simply because war and tyranny are incompatible with the requirements of an industrial civilization.

Krugman wants people to be rational and pragmatic like he is. They aren't—and sometimes that is a good thing. Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman can’t stand that people are irrational; that working-class conservatives are duped into voting against their own economic interests. In a recent New York Times editorial called "How Change Happens," Krugman […]
To understand Trump's brand of disjointed white nationalism, you have to understand the popular right wing radio host. After announcing his run for President on June 16th of last year, Donald Trump could have picked any radio program to do his first interview: Hannity, Limbaugh, Levitt. He could have done the down-the-center NPR interview but instead ch […]

Sanders has ended the coronation and fired up the grass roots. Now Clinton's electability argument is crumbling too. It would be hard to overstate what Bernie Sanders has already achieved in his campaign for president, or the obstacles he’s had to surmount in order to achieve it. Not only has he turned a planned Hillary Clinton coronation into an exerci […]

How can a two-year-old novel become a best seller? Censorship is the short answer.
