The best example of a single pay health system that works, despite constant Republican efforts to undermine it , is Medicare. Medicare for all Americans will put together and stabilize our broken heath care system: Allen L Roland
Yesterday was the 44th birthday of Medicare, our popular senior Single Pay health care system ~ which President Lyndon Johnson signed into law on July 30, 1965. At the time, Johnson called the bill "the most… Continue

"The trafficking in human organs."
This scandal over the sale of organs is the product of a culture that firmly believes that they are Gods who walk the Earth, and that all other people are just sub humans who can be exploited and even killed to suit there needs. The truth is that it is satanic to the core. And the world is finally recognizing this reality for what it is.
When I was in Peru three years ago, I… Continue

And Ten Steps to Take to Do So
By Chalmers Johnson
July 30, 2009 "TomDispatch" -- However ambitious President Barack Obama's domestic plans, one unacknowledged issue has the potential to destroy any reform efforts he might launch. Think of it as the 800-pound gorilla in the American living room: our longstanding reliance on imperialism and militarism in our relations with other countries and the vast, potentially ruinous global empire of bases that goes with it. The… Continue

At a news conference at the National Press Club today, David Scheiner, who was Obama's personal physician for 22 years, said he would not support a proposal currently working its way through Congress: "If we don't go the route of single payer, we're making a terrible mistake."
Asked if he has spoken to the president, Scheiner indicated he was disinvited from a recent forum that featured Obama. "I would give up my eyeteeth to speak to him.… Continue

When they finally cross the line and declare martial law for what ever myriad of reasons that may or may not be orchestrated by "them," will we have descended to the final stage that brings us to shooting the bastards? Each person alive has to deal with the line in the sand that states "enough."
Be it forced inoculations for the coming flu season, to gun confiscation and/or forced relocation, each person has to have a breaking point to insure they are not another victim of madmen at… Continue

In a discussion of the Fed and bank bailouts on MSNBC’s Morning Meeting, host Dylan Ratigan described the process by which the Federal Reserve exchanged $13.9 trillion of bad bank debt ( trash) for cash that it then gave to the struggling banks ~ and he used a simple game to illustrate this ponzi scheme. Eliot Spitzer, who built a reputation as “the Sheriff of Wall Street” as New York’s… Continue

Cambridge Police Sgt. James Crowley has gone whining to his professional organization, the Cambridge Police Superior Officers Assn., asking for support in calling for President Obama to apologize for saying he acted "stupidly" in arresting Harvard Prof. Henry Gates after first suspecting the prominent African-American scholar of being a burglar caught breaking into Gates' own home.
Sgt. Crowley claims he was totally justified in making the arrest on a… Continue

There are a number of stories out there about Goldman Sachs gaining unfair advantage in the financial markets. One concerns a former employee who allegedly swiped a special program to maximize automated stock trades. Questions were raised about the propriety of this since Goldman is hauling in tons of cash on a daily basis while others struggle. A variation of this story… Continue

So far the summer has been mild in the Washington, D.C., area. But for former Vice President Dick Cheney the temperature is well over 100 degrees. He is sweating profusely, and it is becoming increasingly clear why.
Cheney has broken openly with former President George W. Bush on one issue of transcendent importance — to Cheney. For whatever reason, Bush decided not to hand out blanket pardons… Continue

A flyby perspective
By Jonathan Mark
One of the stranger events that happened near the end of the 20th Century was when NASA conducted two flybys around Venus on a journey towards Saturn. A flyby is a maneuver in frictionless space using gravity from a planet for a slingshot-acceleration effect. The strange part regarding Cassini was that it had 72.3 pounds of radioactive plutonium on board, and was scheduled for an Earth-flyby on August 17/18, 1999, while traveling at around 10… Continue

In the report that follows, you will discover that some of the most fundamental assumptions that you have been clinging to since Sept. 11, 2001--assumptions that Lyndon LaRouche warned against--have been a total fraud. Much of what you have been told about the events of 9/11 have been a hoax. The truth, which is clearly revealed in newly declassified documents, available through the National Archives, is that two leading… Continue

"What I did there, I know I contributed to death and human suffering," Agosto told Truthout from Fort Hood, in Killeen, Texas, in May, "It's hard to quantify how much I caused, but I know I contributed to it."

LONDON - July 13 - A new, beautifully-designed line of bottled water - this time not from the melting Alps, nor from faraway, clean-water-deprived Fiji, but rather from the contaminated ground near the site of the 1984 Bhopal catastrophe - scared Dow Chemical's London management team into hiding today.
Twenty Bhopal activists, including Sathyu Sarangi of the Sambhavna Clinic in Bhopal, showed up at Dow headquarters near London to find that the entire building had been… Continue

@ Consortium News
On TV this week, with a measure of disbelief in their voices, the pundits ask, did the CIA lie to or deliberately mislead Congress? How is that not a rhetorical question?
The Agency has a long history of manipulating Congress and others to support its programs. That this was posed as an actual question reveals the media’s historical illiteracy in this matter.
In fact, when a House select… Continue
