The Strategies of Global Warfare: War with China and Russia?

It is important to focus on Southeast Asia and East Asia in a broader geopolitical context. China, North Korea as well as Russia are potential targets under Obama’s “Pivot to Asia”, involving the combined threat of missile deployments, naval power and pre-emptive nuclear war. We are not dealing with piecemeal military endeavors. The regional Asia-Pacific military agenda under the auspices of US Pacific Command (USPACOM) is part of a global ...Read full article...

America’s “Humanitarian War” against the World threatens the Future of Humanity

So-called Humanitarian War is not an inevitable process. War can be prevented through action. The legitimacy of the war must be addressed.  Historically, science has supported the development of the weapons industry and the war economy. “Science for Peace” indelibly requires reversing the logic whereby commissioned  scientific endeavors are directed towards supporting what President Eisenhower called “The Military Industrial Complex”. What is consequently required is a massive redirection of ...Read full article...

The US is the Number One Torturer of Children

Human Rights Watch (HRW) has just released its report,  “Extreme Measures: Abused  Children Detained As National Security Threats.” From my reading of the report, Israel and the US are the two worst abusers.  Boko Haram is a distant third.

The Democratic Party no longer Exists

The Democratic Party that once was concerned with workers’ rights, the elderly, civil rights, and the constitutional protections of America liberty no longer exists. As the just completed Democratic presidential primaries and the Democratic presidential convention have clearly demonstrated, the United States now has two Republican parties in service to the One Percent. The organized Democrats–the Democratic National Committee–have shown themselves to be even more venal and corrupt than ...Read full article...

Make Sure Everyone Sees “Clinton Cash”

It’s no secret that I believe Hillary Clinton is the worst thing that has happened to American in decades. She has been proven to be a liar and a threat to national security. She doesn’t care about you, your family, or your troubles, whether you are a woman, a minority, or any other marginalized or presumably trodden-upon individual. Don’t be fooled by her grand speeches and political machine. If ...Read full article...

How to Stay Safe When Chaos Erupts in America

This summer is like a movie about how corruption took down a once-great republic and sent it barreling toward civil war. It’s about how the powerful now use deadly robots to do their bidding and how two groups of people have been turned against each other at the whims of the wealthy and the powerful. It’s about chaos and  final straws and the shattering of our veneer of civility. When the rose-colored glasses get ripped ...Read full article...

Police Murder Because They Are Trained To Murder

In response to my request for information on US police training, readers have sent in a variety of information that seems to fit together. I am going to assemble it as best I can as a working hypothesis or provisional account. Perhaps a former or current police officer concerned about the change in the behavior of US police, or an expert on police training and practices, will come forward ...Read full article...

The New British Foreign Policy

The Western Press keeps repeating the same message – by leaving the European Union, the British have isolated themselves from the rest of the world, and will have to deal with terrible economic consequences. And yet, the fall in the Pound could be an advantage within the Commonwealth, which is a far greater family than the Union, and present on all six continents. Famous for its pragmatism, the City ...Read full article...

Bugging out. Getting out of Dodge. Evacuation. Whatever you choose to call it, thousands of Americans end up having to leave their homes due to emergencies every year.  According to FEMA: Evacuations are more common than many people realize.
