POLITICS: The stagecraft of U.S. politics is little different than pro wrestling. R's and D's are friends, funded by the same powerful corporate and foreign interests. But when the cameras come on, its showtime! They joust like enemies on our screens for sheer public amusement. Not for meaningful change, mind you. But for sheer public amusement. Like the bread and circuses of ancient Rome, Americans are distracted by design. Its what you don't see that matters. ... See MoreSee Less
America, mark your calendars for August 21. That's when the first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse since 1918 will occur. Interestingly, the U.S. is the only nation that will experience the total eclipse this time. ... See MoreSee Less
EMPIRE: Still can't figure out why the Mideast has a problem with the U.S.? This might help. Here's what an American-supported Yemeni "detention center" looks like. No evidence, no trial, no problem. UAE-U.S. detains Yemeni citizens off the street at will, tortures them, interrogates them, and barely feeds them. Israeli and Saudi-financed U.S. media outlets won't let this story see the light of day. They want to carefully maintain your anger and focus on Iran, who threatens THEIR regional hegemony, not America's. One day, perhaps all Americans will be as angry about our out-of-control "warfare" state as they are about America's "welfare" state. One day, let us wake up and realize that the precious people of the Middle East don't hate us because we are "free". Instead, they despise us because of how we use our freedoms by occupying their lands, terrorizing their women and children, and killing and torturing those who dare to rise in defense of those lands. All of this comes under the wickedly clever auspices of a policy of (intentional) destabilization, designed to keep the balance of power in flux. It's the cost of empire. ... See MoreSee Less
BOMBSHELL REPORT: U.S. military connected to torture in Yemeni secret prisons. The prison network is run by the UAE, a top Gulf ally. Among the alleged abuses: "arbitrary detentions, forced disappearances, abuse, torture, detention of children." Also, details emerged of a new "grilling" torture technique "in which the victim is tied to a spit like a roast and spun in a circle of fire." Pray for the terrified, starving and silenced people of Yemen caught in the diabolical crosshairs of imperial power. ... See MoreSee Less

It is simply amazing that the Saudi-funded corporate-controlled U.S. media has convinced most Americans that Iran is the “real” threat to the region -- even as the Saudi military commits war crimes against innocent civilians on a daily basis.
More evidence that we are living in the twilight hours of Washington's hegemony. While China, India, EU push deeper into renewable energy (i.e., the future), TRUMP admin is obstructing the domestic solar energy industry while propping up the dying coal industry (i.e. the past). The writing is on the wall. ... See MoreSee Less
