“Only after the last tree has been cut down, Only after the last river has been poisoned, Only after the last fish has been caught, Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten”. Cree Indian Prophecy
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."
Suddenly I'm awake. Something is on me. A shadow or a shape. Something nasty. I'm pinned to my bed and I can't move a muscle. There are whispers, wicked whispers. I think I'm screaming but I make no sound. There's a loud buzz, a whoosh, and I'm sucked out of myself, twisting, turning, then dragged. But through my ever-so-slightl […]

Panicked workers had spotted the gaping hole starting to form around the red lorry which had been […]
Three months ago, Jose Olivia, 71, went to the Veterans Affairs Clinic in El Paso for a check up. However, he would not get a check up that day — instead, he'd be brutalized and arrested.

There are many things being exposed, old wounds reopened and more and more realizing that all they say and do in the media, entertainment, government and banking system is not what it seems. We have been living in bizarroland where we ignore our elderly and sick, drug and poison ourselves as well as destroying natural resources in an all consuming economy mo […]
I've seen a lot of different healers thus far in my lifetime. Obviously, being from western culture, I've been to conventional doctors (also known as biomedical doctors, western doctors, 'evidence-based' doctors [yeah, right!], etc) and like most people who've seen conventional doctors for any kind of chronic, non-acute condition, I […]
Disturbingly, an officer given the label of 'Officer of the Year' in 2011 was convicted of multiple crimes involving sexual exploitation of minors. Michael Edwin Harding, pictured above, worked in Fort Pierce, FL as well as Port St Lucie before accruing enough disdain from fellow officers and the prosecutor's office to be charged and convicted […]
Displaying flags and placing flowers on the graves of military members might be two of the more traditional Memorial Day methods of showing tribute to those who have fallen in battle; but perhaps a new tradition must be initiated — one that would constitute the highest form of respect. It's time, beginning with Memorial Day 2016, to prevent any further […]
MSNBC's Chris Matthews has revealed that the major television networks plan to call the Democratic primary for Hillary Clinton during the day on June 7th — hours prior to the close of polls in California — on the grounds that Clinton has "clinched" the nomination as soon as she crosses the 2,383-delegate threshold via both pledged delegates (w […]

(Mar 19, '15)
Why did so many Israeli voters switch their allegiance to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just before this week's election? The answer is simple and obvious: most of those small-party voters oppose a Palestinian state, and a day before the election Netanyahu ruled out a Palestinian state on his watch. (Mar 19, '15)

President Emomali Rahmon opened Tajikistan's new parliament on March 17 with a rousing, self-congratulatory speech.

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

Životopisy tří hlavních organizátorů přistěhovalecké krize a reakce Evropské unie svědčí o jejich napojení na vládu Spojených států a o odhodlání zrušit hranice. Pro tyto muže není současná migrace humanitárním problémem, ale šancí uvést své teorie do praxe.
Průhlednou šmíru předvedla americká média předstíráním svého rozhořčeného údivu nad simulovaným útokem ruských stíhaček na americkou loď Donald Cook. Podrobně přitom popisovala, kolikrát a v jaké výšce ruské stíhačky nad Donaldem Cookem přeletěly, ale o tom, jakým typem lodí Donald Cook je a kde se v okamžiku incidentu nalézal, neutrousila ani zmínku. A o to […]
Libye vlastní skoro 40 % africké ropy, ceněné pro svoji vysokou kvalitu a nízké těžební náklady, a také velké zásoby přírodního plynu. Jeho využitím mohou americké a evropské nadnárodní společnosti dosáhnout mnohonásobně vyšších zisků, než jakých dosahovaly předtím od libyjského státu. Invaze NATO vrátila toto území do středověku.

Podpisem dohody s Tureckem o zpomalení přílivu uprchlíků – což je podle mezinárodního práva ilegální – učinili vůdci Evropy další krok k paktu s ďáblem. Velká část z 3 miliard euro ročně poskytovaných Ankaře bude sloužit jako finanční podpora džihádistům a v důsledku toho se zvýší počet přistěhovalců, kteří utíkají před válkou. Zrušením vízové povinnosti s T […]
Zatímco Západ vyvíjel tlak na Írán, aby se vzdal svého civilního jaderného programu, tak mezitím Saúdové koupili atomovou bombu od Izraele nebo Pákistánu. Od té chvíle se Blízký východ stal k překvapení všech jadernou zónou, jíž dominuje Izrael a Saúdská Arábie.
Rusko zpochybnilo budoucnost Turecka, když doručilo Radě bezpečnosti zprávu od zpravodajské služby o poznatcích, týkajících se činnosti Turecka na podporu džihádistů. Tento dokument obsahuje asi deset odhalení, která se týkají činnostiMIT (Turecké tajné služby). Problém je v tom, že každá z uvedených operací odkazuje zpět na operace, ve kterých ti stejní her […]
Tisíce utečenců, a to jak oběti těžkostí občanských válek, tak i ekonomických oportunistů, postupují na Balkáně a dál, protože se snaží dostat do bohatších zemí, jako jsou Německo, Francie a Skandinávie, a to jakýmkoliv způsobem. Zdálo by se, že proud utečenců má objektivní důvody: Ozbrojené konflikty v Libyi, Sýrii a Iráku trvají již řadu let a situace je s […]
Na rozdíl od zdání nemá rozhodnutí Spojených států vyšetřovat možnou ruskou pomoc proti-evropským stranám chránit Evropany před zahraničním zasahováním. Právě naopak. Po 70 let Washington řídí západoevropskou politiku a zakazuje všechny formy skutečné demokracie.

I’ve written a lot about Donald Trump in this space, basically arguing that his views signify a sea change in the foreign policy discourse in this country.

It's time for honest Republicans to speak out against this dangerous, unprincipled vulgarian. Who has the courage?

Unlike Nixon's famous "silent majority," Trump's backers are loud—and growing in volume. A few weeks ago, I went to a Donald Trump rally in suburban Philadelphia.

This option re […]
Thomas Jefferson put it simply and eloquently: An informed citizenry is at the heart of a dynamic democracy.

Turkey has questioned its relationship with the US, with the deputy prime minister saying it is "unsuitable" for soldiers of a country which is friends with Ankara to wear the badges of a "terrorist organization."
It is becoming ever more obvious to people around the world that Turkey is largely responsible for the continuing war in Syria - I won't call it a civil war as it is plainly not that, rather something far more complex and multi-layered with international players directly involved.
