'Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations that've long since bought and paid for, the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pocket, and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and the information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I'll tell you what they don't want. They don't want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that. That doesn't help them.'…

Henry Kissinger: "If You Can't Hear the Drums of War You Must Be Deaf"

By Alfred Heinz 

February 15, 2013 "Information Clearing House" - NEW YORK - USA - In a remarkable admission by former Nixon era Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, reveals what is happening at the moment in the world and particularly the Middle East. Speaking from his luxurious Manhattan apartment, the elder statesman, who will be 89 in May, is all too forward with his analysis of the current situation in the world forum of Geo-politics and economics. "The United States is baiting China and Russia, and the final nail in the coffin will be Iran, which is, of course, the main target of Israel. We have allowed China to increase their military strength and Russia to recover from Sovietization, to give them a false sense of bravado, this will create an all together faster demise for them. We're like t…

Truth is always the enemy of power. And power the enemy of truth.
Edward Abbey. A Voice Crying In The Wilderness. 1989 I cannot prove that I am stateless, because I am stateless.
Ad van Delderen. Go No Go. 2003 The End of History and the Last Man is a 1992 book by Francis Fukuyama… In the book, Fukuyama argues that the advent of Westernliberal democracy may signal the end point of humanity's sociocultural evolution and the final form of human government. ‘What we may be witnessing is not just the end of the Cold War, or the passing of a particular period of post-war history, but the end of history as such: that is, the end point of mankind's ideological evolution and the universalizationof Western liberal democracy as the final form of human government.’
Our age is indeed the age of the intellectual organization of political hatreds. It will be one of its chief claims to notice in the moral history of humanity… All thes…

Targeted Killings: A Legal History EMAIL  PRINT SHARE

74 Posted on Feb 14, 2013AP/U.S. Customs and Border Protection By Bill Blum
Unless you are an unquestioning hawk in the war on terror, “scary” doesn’t begin to describe the breathtaking expansion of executive authority called for in the Justice Department’s “white paper” on “targeted killing,” published this month by NBC News. In 16 pages of dense single-spaced legal prose, the paper lays out a justification under both international and domestic law for the president or other unspecified “informed, high-level” administration officials to order the execution of U.S. citizens abroad who are deemed to be senior operational leaders of al-Qaida or forces “associated” with the terrorist network. When all the legalese is stripped away, the paper offers a stark and simple bottom line: Because America is at war, all that’s needed for a kill order to proceed is evidence that a targeted individual is “continually involved in planning terroris…

Boycot Israel 121

There's much to do between now and the shareholder vote this summer! 1. CREF no longer accepts shareholder resolutions for this year, but everyone is encouraged to sign our open petition. You've signed our petition already (thanks!), now please tell your friends to sign it as well. 2. Start a Veolia campaign in your local community.
Dear Stan,

Over 200 CREF clients filed individual shareholder resolutions asking the retirement giant to to end investments in companies whose business supports Israel’s occupation.
About 50 people stood in a freezing New York morning last week (see right), and another contingent stood in an even colder Chicago morning (see below) to present by hand some of these shareholder resolution to TIAA-CREF's offices.
These hundreds of resolutions have opened the door to raise the question officially--not only with TIAA-CREF's management, but also with the company's millions of clients--about divesting from companies making a profit off the suffering …

Growth for the saken of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell.
Edward Abbey. A Voice Crying In The Wilderness. 1989 Whether the whites won the land by treaty, by armed conquest, or, as was actually the case, by a mixture of both, mattered comparatively little so long as the land was won. It was all-important that it should be won, for the benefit of civilization and in the interests of mankind. It is indeed a warped, perverse, and silly morality which would forbid a course of conquest that has turned whole continents into the seats of mighty and flourishing civilized nations. All men of sane and wholesome thought must dismiss with impatient contempt the plea that these continents should be reserved for the use of scattered savage tribes, whose life was but a few degrees less meaningless, squalid, and ferocious than that of the wild beasts with whom they held joint ownership. It is as idle to apply to savages the rules of international morality which obtain between stable and culture…
