Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Excerpts of a Sermon at the Ebenezer Baptist Church on April 30, 1967.
You may not know it my friend, but it is estimated that we spend $500,000 dollars to kill each enemy soldier, while we spend only $53.00 dollars for each person classified as poor. And, most of that $53.00 dollars goes to salaries for people who are not poor.
The Western arrogance, of feeling that it has everything to teach others and, nothing to learn… Continue
I posted an opinion piece about the consequences of this ruling, this crime actually, several weeks ago when the ruling had not yet been made. I did anticipate it and my worries were not unfounded.
The door has now been opened for foreign interference in US elections. Multinational corporations will now control perceptions even more than they already do. The face of the nation is changing rapidly and voting now becomes an even more meaningless event.
For nearly six years, British resident Omar Deghayes was imprisoned in Guantánamo and subjected to such brutal torture that he lost the sight in one eye. But far from being broken, he fought back to retain his dignity and his sanity.

Hot on the heels of Climategate — the leaking of thousands of emails and computer files that show many of the world’s leading climate scientists fudging the results of their global warming research and contriving to keep skeptics from being published in academic journals — comes what could be called Glaciergate. Prominent among the claims of impending environmental disaster in the UN’s fourth report on climate change, published in 2007, was the prediction that all of the…

What seems different in this report are the presence of new chemicals and the across the board presence of these substances in the subjects polled... the majority had them all. Its difficult to dig into the numbers (maybe because a cocktail of neurotoxic cancer causing drugs is coursing through my… Continue
TOMORROW will be one year since President Obama signed an executive order outlawing torture, yet our debate about interrogation methods continues. Though the president deserves praise for improving matters, the changes were not as drastic as most Americans think, and elements of our interrogation policy continue to be both inhumane and counterproductive.

Fresh on the heels of a Dutch investigation into the conflicts of interest of their chief influenza advisor and the bombshell announcement that the Council of Europe will be probing their role in creating and sustaining panic over the recent H1N1 outbreak in order to sell vaccines for Big Pharma, the World Health Organization is now conisdering "innovative" proposals for raising additional revenues, including levying a global tax on internet activity.
There are theories about almost every possible conspiracy imaginable and I view most with careful consideration and general disbelief. Some, like those involving 9/11 have enough substance to be wholly believable.
The theory that HAARP is being used to alter weather or cause earthquakes doesn't hold a lot of water just yet, but let me ask, "why would the US be holding a Disaster Relief Drill for a Haitian hurricane ONE DAY BEFORE the Haitian earthquake?"
I continue to maintain that the NWO is NATO, the UN, WHO, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and others and that the connection to Rothschild is a deception used to subjugate the truth and avoid investigation into the real perpetrators. A careful examination of global events and US/Israeli complicity in 9/11 bears this result. Now we have global taxes in the making.

Whenever there is injustice, there are people fighting it with every possible means. We have seen it so many times before: the oppressed rise up, the oppressor dehumanizes them calling them such names as "terrorists", "saboteurs", "death loving" extremists... It is only normal that the oppressor will always lie to justify his actions and its crimes.
What is different in the case of Palestine, is that the Israeli… Continue
TRNN interviews relatives of recently assassinated men in Nablus, Occupied Palestinian Territories
In recent weeks Israel has escalated its practice of assassinations in the West Bank and Gaza. At the end of December, Israeli special forces broke into the Nablus homes of Anan Subih, Raed Surkaji, and Ghassan Abu Sharekh and killed them. Official Israeli sources linked the three to the killing of… Continue

It is no surprise that much of the attention over Mervyn King’s speech on Tuesday night has focused on his double warning to the Government that: 1. this recovery will feel very downbeat for some time and 2. Alistair Darling should beware the market and slash the deficit in the Budget this year. After all, although the Governor may have felt he was doing his best to avoid being seen as overly critical of Downing Street, that wasn’t… Continue

The Obama administration has taken extraordinary measures to prevent desperate Haitians from entering the US since a January 12 earthquake devastated the Caribbean nation, killing an estimated 200,000, making at least 1.5 million homeless, and orphaning 1 million children. The effort to bar Haitians from entering the US—including the wounded seeking medical treatment—illustrates that the priority of the US-led intervention is not to save lives, but to establish military… Continue
The former American military chief of the notorious Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq reiterates the Israeli involvement in the US-run facility, where hundreds of Iraqi suspects were tortured and sexually abused by US soldiers and interrogators.
Shedding further light on the scandal that has served as a controversy-magnet for Washington ever since its emergence in 2004, the retired US army colonel Janis Karpinski says that Israeli agents were recruited by the US military at Abu Ghraib to… Continue
