Seoul in Damage Control After on U.S. Envoy Suffers Bloody Attack (The Korea Times, South Korea)

Based on South Korean news reports on the unprecedented slashing attack against U.S. Ambassador Mark Lippert, quite a few questions should be raised. The assault on the ambassador comes amid annual U.S.-South Korea military exercises called Key Resolve/Foal Eagle, which, as always, North Korea is calling a provocation to nuclear war. Furthermore, the attack comes […]

Netanyahu has More ‘Right to Speak’ than Obama Ever Will (de Volskrant, The Netherlands)

Was President Obama wrongheaded to oppose today’s speech to Congress by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu? For de Volkskrant of the Netherlands, historian Dirk-Jan van Baar goes one step further, arguing that given Obama’s Middle East track record, he should speak less and let Netanyahu speak more. The mudslinging casts a dark shadow over what’s […]

Yes Indeed: Venezuela Coup Attempts are Aided by Washington (La Jornada, Mexico)

Since Hugo Chavez was first elected president of Venezuela in 1999, the country’s leaders have charged the United States with overtly and covertly working to undermine its government, which Washington regards as hostile to its interests.

Shuttering Department of Homeland Security would be a ‘Good Idea’ (Guardian Unlimited, U.K.)

Whoever decided to use the fascist-sounding term ‘homeland’ in the first place should be exiled. Ask yourself how a Republican ‘small government’ president oversaw the creation of a monstrous, wasteful, ineffective state bureaucracy to protect the nation and ‘end stove piping’ in the wake of 9-11. The people who govern this country, in both political […]

President Al Sisi, Good Muslims, and Their Apostates

In the wake of the Paris shootings, the horrors visited by ISIS upon Syria and Iraq and the genocide being perpetrated by Boko Haram in North Africa, finally there seems to be an awakening even among the western mainstream media and the politically correct that there could be something endemic to Islam itself that accounts […]

Chemical Weapons

In January 2015, researchers at the University of Nebraska Medical Center received a $1.9 million grant to develop a new therapy to protect military members from nerve agent exposure. It would pleasure me to have that therapy goodie in my supply kit. More good news. Last week AP’s Dan Elliott reported that “…The Pueblo Chemical […]

Fireflies and Crocus-Hope

Mother Nature isn’t naughty or nice, in fact she simply goes about the business of earth irrespective of local impacts. Her changes always bring a new equilibrium to bear, although it might take an eon or two. So far she hasn’t shaken mankind off like she shed the dinosaurs, but who knows. In the span […]

Taqiyya

By: B.F. Johnson Montana’s mountains, Wyoming’s Kortes Dam, and the North Shore of Lake Superior provided the backdrops of a childhood that instilled a belief that I could be anything I wanted to be if I just worked hard enough and paid my dues. Running wild and free through these landscapes I believed the truisms […]

​Neocons Nazis And 9/11/01

By Eric Jewell  Many Americans have heard the term “Neoconservative” but most still remain almost completely in the dark as to it’s meaning or what they stand for even though every administration since the assassination  of Kennedy has followed the Neoconservative agenda, with the possible exception of the Carter Administration.  What IS a Neoconservative and […]

Political Jabberwocky

At least Lewis Carroll’s nonsensical poem had a beginning, an end, was fun and it rhymed. Written in 1871, Jabberwocky was read by Alice during her adventures in Wonderland. “It seems very pretty,’ she said when she had finished it, ‘but it’s rather hard to understand!’ (You see she didn’t like to confess, even to […]
