Boy, if that just isn’t the pot calling the kettle black! How many countries were strong-armed into the Iraqi “coalition of the willing”! And I’m sure that the handful of countries that consistently vote with the US and Israel on continuing the Cuba embargo, are doing that… Read full post »

RT Anchor’s Resigning on the Air

I haven’t watched much RT America for a while. I recall Liz Wahl when I did watch. She didn’t sound too informed when I saw her on Lawrence O’Donnell last night. Which surprised me because based upon what I’d seen she was professional, and I didn’t think someone… Read full post »

Bachmann Nutty on Norway, As All Else

Former Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann doesn’t have the slightest clue what she is talking about in this CNN debate with Bernie Sanders here. In it she argues that the United States of America, is not availing itself of its natural resources in the same manner that Norway is. Norway has… Read full post »

Google’s ‘Activist’ Stand

Google has a rainbow logo for the Sochi Olympics. I’m glad a company can still take the “moral high ground” that is incredibly active in developing a totalitarian American Stasi, and in fact records all of an individual’s searches — via their search engine — fo

I had read this piece in Deutsche Welle at the time of the printing of the article, but I have not seen too many headlines on this issue. And moreover, I have not really seen this issue, very much, being brought to the forefront. The lily-livered, egregious,… Read full post »

This is a very superlative article written by Wayne Madsen. It is a very good succinct look at the ways of the world. This should almost be printed and handed out, far and wide to people. Unfortunately, I think a person needs some level of political acumen… Read full post »

It just simple fact(s) that more egalitarian countries, the more social democratic as opposed to the more free market, have a wide range of outcomes beyond just a more fair overall distribution of wealth. I’m hearing a lot in the “land” of progressivedom/ism that social democracy

The Financial Times has opined recently that there is a rising libertarian tide in the United States of America. Particularly among the so-called Gen Y or Echo Boomer generation, who they claim do not easily jell with the current mainline American political schema. I have opined myself… Read full post »

Israel: Ethnocracy or Theocracy?

I don’t know what others hear, but I see (and hear) a lot of speculation about a little know Orthodox Jewish sect known as the Chabad Lubavitch. I don’t know a lot about them, some of the more scurrilous stuff I am, of course, loath to entertain. Interesting… Read full post »

Sandy Hook Shooter Called John Zerzan?

I find it just bizarre, haven’t really drawn a conclusion. I’ll be honest I used to have some interest in John Zerzan. Some of his ideas make sense, he has no solution(s) IMO. The human race just isn’t going back to hunter-gatherism. Unless by the means Einstein… Read full post »

Not that I know anything about the show, other than the stars all seem to need a thorough shaving! And probably a hot bath (or shower) too! It looks about as bad as reality TV can get! Who put a mic in front of this guy and thought… Read full post »

Bob Graham ‘Crusading’ for 9/11 Truth?

Bob Graham looks like he is on some kind of media tour. I think that The Real News Network had him on before anyone. The actual truth of 9/11, I’m not sure will much be elucidated by any of this. It’s all highly dubious/suspicious

Personally, I think the right are more go along get along, and/or willing to follow a stern and authoritarian leader than the left. Leftist revolutions — after having periods of great agency/possibility for a wide range of people have kangaroo courted, and then executed freethinkers/free sp… Read full post »

Rant on Google Plus/Youtube Commenting

“I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” – Voltaire

Since the inception of the Google Plus thing the neo-Nazis, fascists, and bigots I don’t really any longer see on Youtube. Which it hardly heartened me… Read full post »

This is an older interview, and I don’t how many have seen it. Electronic Intifada did a good write-up of it back in June 2012. And so anyway, I think that pro-Palestinian activists should definitely give it a view. Dr. Norman Finkelstein really destroys years of activism, in… Read full post »

Reading is Fundamental

I don’t read much fiction. I’ve got a “non-fiction brain”, or some such for some reason. Some fiction that I consider real good is Junky, Devil on the Cross, Things Fall Apart, and of course “the essentials” Fahrenheit 451, 1984 and Brave New World.

I can recall a… Read full post »

Yoda to Retire to a Swamp Planet?

Hopefully Yoda’s, Andrew Marshall of the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment (ONA), going to have to abscond to a dank cave in the swampy environs of a far away and remote planet! Apparently, Rumsfeld really dug that last AirSea Battle prognostication though!

This Stratfor guy, I think, is a definite diploma mill candidate. In his unincisive, and in fact unintelligible screed on who is a dictator; he’s got Boris Yeltsin as a democrat! Few democrats burn down the Parliament! Well the “democrat” Hitler did, but at least he had… Read full post »

This was an excellent article about a writer, Niels Gerson Lohman, who was sent back to Canada. I personally have had more problems with the Canadian border people. I was detained at the Canadian border for like 4-6 hours one time. The Canadian border people had no… Read full post »

Diosdado Cabello is the Speaker of the Venezuelan Parliament an old military buddy of Chavez’s. He’s actually a very smart guy too — although he may not look like the brightest bulb, he’s an engineer! And he’s come out now saying, “Two children died on April 15… Read full post »

Glenn Greenwald Leaving the Guardian

Unfortunately, for the intrepid Mr. Greenwald he’ll be in a brig, probably Gitmo, or the the Embassy of an ALBA (Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas) country, before we know it! Maybe he’ll outright get to an ALBA country since he lives in Brazil, which borders Venezuela and… Read full post »

Democrats Savvy for Once?

One has to wonder if the Democrats right now are playing possum/coy. That the demographics look abysmal for the Rethugs, and this is how they will be remembered — bringing the country to the brink (or beyond) — years from now, when people will wonder if they’ll ever… Read full post »
