Listen to Steve Horn, journalist reporting on DeSmogBlog discussing how the projected Trump Administration energy policy and appointments will accelerate climate chaos in conversation with Alison Rose Levy.
To say that a voter cares whether or not a given politician is a liar, is to say that even if the politician is of that voter’s own political party, the voter will reject the politician for being a liar. In the United States, most voters are either Democratic or Republican; and, for example, Republicans accept George W. Bush (he left office in 2009 …
I use the writings of Orlov and The Saker as checks on my own conclusions. In his article Orlov concludes that the United States is a dead nation, still walking, but no longer a uni-power. I agree with Orlov that US weapon systems are more focused on profits than on effectiveness and that Russia has superior weapons and a superior …

Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss is an American Haredi Rabbi, human rights and religious activist and the spokesperson for Neturei Karta (Net-oor-ay Car-tah) – also known as Orthodox Jews United Against Zionism — in Brooklyn and Monsey New York. Neturei Karta is a Jewish group opposing the state of Israel and the Zionist agenda that pretends to be representative of the spiritual values in religious Judaism and the Torah. It was founded in Jerusalem in 1938 when a group of Orthodox rabbis refused to recognize the authority of what would later become the state of Israel. Rabbi Weiss is the son of Hungarian Jews; both of his grandparents died at the Auschwitz camp during the war. He is also a sharp critic of Jewish and Israeli efforts to use the Holocaust as a weapon to increase sympathy for political and economic advantage. He is highly respected within the Muslim and Palestinian communities for his efforts to advance interfaith dialogue between religions. The rabbi’s writings can be found on the Neturei Karta website at NKUSA.org

Bryon Linnehan spent more than two years chasing bad guys around Iraq as a U.S. military-intelligence officer. Since May, he’s been using skills he honed on the battlefield to monitor electronic communications inside Barclays Plc. Desperate to avoid more costly run-ins with regulators, investment banks are hiring former intelligence professionals like Linnehan to scrutinize virtually all aspects of their employees’ working …
Truth seekers who long ago figured out that mainstream media is all lies and staged news coordinated by central intelligence (CIA) to manipulate the opinion of the masses, know that living a life free of mainstream media news is extremely fulfilling if not downright fun. Many of us are used to the idea that no mainstream media in our lives …
GR Editor’s Note Publicly available military documents confirm that pre-emptive nuclear war is still on the drawing board of the Pentagon. Compared to the 1950s, the nuclear weapons are more advanced. The delivery system is more precise. In addition to China and Russia, Iran, Syria and North Korea are targets for pre-emptive nuclear war. Let us be under no illusions, the …

2. NATO is continuing its barrage of the Libyan capital, with no sign there will be any let-up until Colonel Muammar Gaddafi goes. Western and Arab countries are showing their support for the Libyan opposition by pledging more money. The rebels say they need $3 billion over the next several months to pay salaries and buy supplies. Although the rebels have managed to get financing from their first oil exports to the US, writer and filmmaker Patrick Henningsen believes the oil business coming out of Libya is not the main driver of this NATO operation. – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUoOErVEVd0

Why did we demand this  punishment for Olson? Because of this senior General’s illegal and unconstitutionally sectarian speech of shocking …
