“While ignoring the millions of deaths of Muslims and Christians in the mid-east as a result of our wars of terror, this faction beats the drums for more wars as a result of Christians being killed by Muslims. None of them can accept the idea that no one should die as a result of these insipid religious ideologies. Not even if we are the ones doing the killing.”

popuWith the overthrow via the recent elections of the Democrats in congress, many are speculating about what exactly is going to happen now that Republicans control both houses. Other than a few corporate give-aways, I doubt there will be much happening that will be of any benefit to ordinary Americans. After all, we are dealing with the same people for the most part, and their agenda has nothing to do with you.

Keystone

There is no doubt there will be a massive effort to approve the Keystone Pipeline from Canada. This pipeline has been thoroughly rejected by Canadians due to the chronic leaks, spills and massive loads of toxic waste produced from the tar sands operations. Not to worry Canada! More

Sobering Truths About America’s Imperialist Crimes Against Humanity

“We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it ‘bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East’. – Harold Pinter

_____________________________________________________

10150533_736557003032115_475730777_nBritish playwright Harold Pinter won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005. His powerful acceptance speech exposed the United States for its fascist, imperialist policies since World War II. His speech (delivered three years before he died in 2008) was an important glimpse into – and a reasonable summary of — the innumerable documentable US imperialistic crimes that have been secretly facilitated by our multinational corporations, our national security apparatus, our military leaders, our wealthy elites and the craven politicians who are beholden to those four realities that have shaped American foreign policy over the past 60 years.

True American patriots, if they really love the United States, must be honest about the dishonorable, dark side of their nation’s history, a history that the rest of the world, especially Pinter, sees so clearly. Understanding that history will clear up any mystery about why the rest of the world fears and hates us. More

1907_592480940779533_1288754931_nLate Friday, a federal judge dismissed a civil claim filed against George W. Bush and other high-ranking officials regarding their conduct in planning and waging the Iraq War, and immunized them from further proceedings.

“This is an early Christmas present to former Bush Administration officials from the federal court,” Inder Comar of Comar Law said. Comar brought the claim on behalf of an Iraqi refugee and single mother, Sundus Shaker Saleh. “This was a serious attempt to hold US leaders accountable under laws set down at the Nuremberg Trials in 1946. I am very disappointed at the outcome.” More

BLM omits facts and uses fuzzy math to roundup wild horses in Pine Nut Herd Management Area in Nevada

Some interesting background before you read the news article below:  It seems that if we even just look at one grazing allotment on the Pine Nut HMA, the Buckeye Allotment, BLM allows about 375 cattle (and don’t forget that cow-calf pairs only count as one in BLM fuzzy math, so this number could be doubled) to dine on public lands for about 5 1/2 months out of the year.

The Buckeye Grazing Allotment permittee is Bently Family Ltd. Partnership (with the 7th highest taxpayer assessment in Douglas County in 2013-2014, at $12,385,310).  The President & Director of Bently Ranch is businessman Christopher Bently, who’s also the CEO of Bently Holdings, and is on the Board of Directors of The Burning Man Project.  He was CEO of Bently Biofuels, but just sold it.  He’s also CEO of Bently Enterprises.  His father was billionaire Don Bently.

Also, in BLM’s Oct. 2010 Environmental Assessment to roundup wild horses in the Pine Nut HMA in Nevada, the BLM claimed there were 148 horses within the Pine Nut HMA and they were going to treat 45 mares with PZP.  So, that would leave about 103 wild horses without fertility control in Oct. 2010.  So even if ALL STALLIONS GAVE BIRTH, and using BLM’s questionable estimate of a 25% increase per year for wild horse herds, that would mean in 2011 there could’ve been 129 horses, in 2012 there could’ve been 162 horses, in 2013 there could’ve been 203 horses and in 2014 there could’ve been 254 horses.  (But only IF ALL of the stallions also gave birth.  And only IF no horses died.)

Torture is Not the Will of the People

Mr. Hayden: Torture was NOT the will of the people. You didn’t do this for us. You did this because absolute power corrupts, absolutely. And you did think you were all-powerful didn’t you?  You do have the advantage here……we all know there isn’t a snowball’s chance in hell you will ever be prosecuted, nor will you ever be institutionalized for what is apparently a deep-seated mental deficiency. Like all sociopaths and psychopaths, you have no regrets or remorse for your crimes against humanity….you just lament the idea that you have been caught, exposed, and now everyone knows just how sick you truly are. And lacking any real reason for why you encouraged the torture, you try to blame the American public. We did not make you do this.

Last evening, I saw a film clip repeatedly shown with him red-faced, looking like a spoiled child used to always getting his way and never being disciplined, raging that he “thought we were doing the will of the people”. He just didn’t mention which people those might have been. More
