ON THE BRINK OF OUR FIRST GENERATIONAL WAR…

August 15th, 2017

There are, in the United States of America, at this very moment, high school students who may, after their graduation, chose to enlist and serve in our nation’s armed forces and become the first generational combatants we have ever raised. This is the legacy of our longest war. Ralph Nader, in The 16 Year War […]

MEET KATRINA PIERSON, TRUMP’S LIAR-IN-CHIEF…

August 5th, 2016

Could attacking the family of fallen veteran, Army Captain Humayun Saqib Muazzam Khan, who gave his life in the defense of his country on 8 June 2005, be the bridge too far for Donald Trump? Maybe. What other story about the garbage spewing from Trump’s mouth has had this kind of traction. (Well, maybe this.) […]

IF ONLY WE HAD THIS LAW IN THE UNITED STATES…

July 4th, 2016

[Update: 6 July @ 2000: Trevor Timm agrees…] President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld are, in my book, all war criminals unlikely to ever be charged or punished for their wars of adventurism in Afghanistan and Iraq. There is a co-conspirator, however, who may be brought task […]

WAR IS HORRIBLE, DISGUSTING AND REAL…

August 11th, 2014

The Iraqi soldier died attempting to pull himself up over the dashboard of his truck. The flames engulfed his vehicle and incinerated his body, turning him to dusty ash and blackened bone. In a photograph taken soon afterward, the soldier’s hand reaches out of the shattered windshield, which frames his face and chest. The colors […]

HERMANN GOERING INTERVIEWED…

July 10th, 2014

We got around to the subject of war again and I said that, contrary to his attitude, I did not think that the common people are very thankful for leaders who bring them war and destruction. “Why, of course, the people don’t want war,” Goering shrugged. “Why would some poor slob on a farm want […]

CUE DAVID BYRNE…*

June 22nd, 2014

So here we are again, debating whether to Re-re-re-invade Iraq. Hopefully Obama’s answer there will be a resounding NO…. but I’m not holding my breath. What’s remarkable to me, is the corporate news machine is wheeling out the same idiots who advocated— or, in some cases, orchestrated– the calamitous Iraq War of 2003. The very […]

June 18th, 2014

“Rarely has a president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.” –Dick and Liz Cheney on Obama, June 18, 2014 “Once you got to Iraq and took it over, and took down Saddam Hussein’s government, then what are you going to put in its place? If you take down the […]

HANLON’S RAZOR…

December 31st, 2013

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity. —Robert Hanlon, Scranton, Pennsylvania. I’ve often thought that those who claim that politicians are idiots or too stupid to breed make a grave error by allowing the individuals or groups in question to escape charges of malice or flat-out evil, (presidents Ronald Reagan, George […]

THE REAL BUSH CONNECTION WITH ISRAEL…

November 15th, 2013

From The Guardian: Some people think George W Bush did as much as he could to bring about Armageddon with his earlier interventions in the Middle East. But not the man himself, apparently. He has signed up for a fundraising event for the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute, an organisation which aims to promote the second […]

STRIKING AT THE BOSS…*

August 20th, 2013

Paul Craig Roberts writes: The improprieties of Nixon and Clinton were minor, indeed of little consequence, when compared to the crimes of George W. Bush and Obama, their vice presidents, and the bulk of their presidential appointees. Yet, impeachment is “off the table,” as Nancy Pelosi infamously declared. [Roberts is, of course, disingenuous here by […]

HOW OBAMA STIFLES POLITICAL DISCOURSE…

October 11th, 2012

Mano Singham writes: But really, should we be surprised? When Bush was president and waging wars and torturing with abandon, at least some Democrats were up in arms, warning of the grave violations to the constitution and human rights that those actions represented. As soon as Barack Obama took office, he halted torture practices such […]

Out, damn’d spot! out, I say!-One; two: why, then ’tis time to do’t.-Hell is murky.-Fie, my lord, fie, a soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our pow’r to accompt?-Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?

Ron Kuby writes: Details on the just-foiled terror plot to destroy Bronx Jewry as well as shoot down airplanes are unclear, but they appear to follow a typical pattern. A disgruntled loser goes on the Web in order to vent his frustrations with America. The person to whom he is speaking sees a means of […]

WHAT IS JESSE RUNNING FOR…?

May 21st, 2009

If I’m being too cynical, call me on it. I admire Jesse Ventura for what he has accomplished in his life, and he’s dead on with the torture issue, but why now?

ARROGANT, DESPICABLE, UNREPENTANT, VILE…

May 21st, 2009

Andrew Suillivan writes (from vacation): But Cheney knows otherwise. His speech was not a patriotic defense of what he thinks is best for this country; it was a vile and deliberately divisive attempt to use the politics of fear and false machismo against the stability of the American polity.
