Michael Payne – The Violent Image That America Projects To the World

In years past, especially after the end of World War II, America had a stellar image in the world. Nations and their people looked up to this symbol of freedom and democracy. They respected its government and admired its people. America was often thought of as a role model for all other nations. How things change. Much of that respect …

Stephen Lendman – Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Lightning II Boondoggle. A $2 Trillion Pentagon Waste

At an estimated lifetime development, production, operational and maintenance cost of $2 trillion or more (adjusted for inflation), the F-35 perhaps most of all symbolizes notorious Pentagon waste, fraud and abuse – ripping off taxpayers, using the nation’s resources irresponsibly, at the expense of vital homeland needs. Pentagon hype calls the F-35 “a 5th Generation fighter, combining advanced stealth with …

Infectious Myth – “Open Media with David Christopher”? – 01.26.16

In Episode 86, David Crowe interviews David Christopher of OpenMedia.ca about a variety of media issues, including net neutrality, government warrantless eavesdropping on everyone’s communications, media ownership concentration, and how the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) will negatively affect internet users. OpenMedia.ca is similar to the Electronic Freedom Foundation (EFF) in the United States, and many of the issues are similar.

Since the interview is relatively short, and David (Crowe) didn’t manage to get into the important media issue of freedom of speech, on the internet, or elsewhere, he continues by discussing it. The backlash against a white human rights journalist who photoshopped her face into different races and cultured. The irony of jargon of people who claim to be excluded actually excluding others from participating in discussions. Why the “Je suis Charlie Hebdou” activists are very selective about what kind of speech they rally to protect.

Finally, David addresses some environmental issues: Are tens of thousands of coal jobs more important than neurological coal pollutants? Can milk contaminated with pesticides cause Parkinson’s? What’s happening with the water in Flint, Michigan?

The resources David references can be found at: http://theinfectiousmyth.com/PRN-TIM/86.php

Robert J. Gould – The Ongoing Tension Between Power and Morality

American Exceptionalism is the belief that, even when the US is flawed in its policies, those politics are justifiable because there is something innately morally superior about being an American. This alleged moral high ground comes from our international commitment to promote and enforce democracy and free-market capitalism–even when it boils down to supporting dictatorships and economic exploitation. This view …

John Kiriakou – Saudi Arabia and the UN’s Human Rights Scandal

audi Arabia has completed its first three months as Chair of the United Nations Human Rights Council. If anything exemplifies the irrelevance of the United Nations and the body’s seeming inability to put its collective foot down on human rights abuses around the world, it is having Saudi Arabia as the leader of the UN body that is supposed to …

Shane Harris – Marines Trained That Rape in Afghanistan Is a ‘Cultural’ Issue

U.S. Marines preparing to go overseas are given a detailed training session about the Marine Corps’ own rules against sexual assault.

A 45-minute scripted presentation given to Marines …

Warrior Connection – 08.23.15

Warrior Connection was a continuing discussion on PTSD and avoiding the hooks.

HOOKS

Substance abuse is a constant danger to those who are living with PTSD.
Because we are always looking for something to help us forget or make us feel better, we become prone to addiction. We can avoid substance abuse if we will make a conscience decision to begin making better choices.
This program will help you to better understand addiction.

“Watch out for the Hooks” is an object lesson designed for youth (6 and older) to help them identify and avoid destructive addictions in America today. I have been demonstrating this unique object lesson (based on fishing) to young people and adults alike for the past twelve years. It has proven to be a great source of information on how to avoid being ensnared by attractive “lures” that will rob them of having a happy and fulfilled life.

This is a “must see” demonstration that will empower young people to detect and avoid the many “lures” that the commercial world will inevitably put in front of them. They will learn through a simple fishing lesson the snares and dangers of playing with “HOOKS.”
This object lesson has been presented to many Church groups, Private and Public school classes, Martial Arts Training Halls and Tournament events, Craven County Detention Center, Pitt County Adult & Juvenile Detention Centers along with Prime For Life substance abuse and prevention classes at MCAS Cherry Point, N.C.

This program of Help and Hope was created to keep our children and young adults clean and free from destructive addictions. Please call for more information or a demonstration.

On July 16, 2015 four US Marines and a sailor were shot dead by an Islamic fanatic in Chattanooga.
