The Queen of England and Sandy Hook

By “On behalf of Our Children”

What could be more horrific than intentional harm to children?  Yet, repeatedly, child rape and child sacrifice are surfacing among the “elite.”  With 1000s of missing children a year and child trafficking, the world is now forced to see the involvement of its “leaders” – not only in kidnapping children on a large scale, sexually abusing and/or raping them, but even potentially in using them for child sacrifice in Satanic rituals.

Who Was Osama? Who Is Obama?

By Michel Chossudovsky
Global Research, May 2, 2012

While the President and Commander in Chief of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama “celebrates” the first anniversary of the alleged death of bin Laden, the substantive issue as to WHO WAS OSAMA BIN LADEN remains unheralded. (Remarks by President Obama in Address to the Nation from Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan, see video at foot of article)

Through lies and fabrications, president Obama`s carefully scripted speech upholds a world of total fantasy, in which “bad guys” are lurking and “plotting acts of terror” Islamic “jihadists” are said to be threatening Western civilization.

Each and every statement in Obama’s May 1st speech at Bagram Air Force base regarding the role of Al Qaeda is a fabrication:

How to Celebrate the Fourth of July: Read Frederick Douglass

By Kai Wright
Colorlines.com

I’m content to let most holidays be just that—a time when you come off your daily grind and act up with the friends and family. July 4th—or, Independence Day—is a bit more complicated for me. It’s a celebration of the United States’ mythical founding story, an ahistorical account that was written to obscure the young nation’s many, many crimes against humanity. It never fails to surprise me how little Americans know of their real history, and thus how often we repeat its sins.

Today, Americans of all races hear about slavery, but haven’t the faculties to truly grasp it, or how crucial that brutality was to creating the wealth upon which this nation was built. Few schools teach that, in fact, trans-Atlantic slavery began as British capitalists stole their own countrymen’s common lands and forced the displaced into pressed labor on their ships. Or that it grew through their Irish conquest, where they repeated the formula, shipping forced labor to the Caribbean. Or that white supremacy was concocted by European capitalists who feared a multinational, multiracial coalition of the many hues of people they had forced to labor for them in deadly conditions in the Americas. When African slavery proved the most profitable way to extract labor, they just dehumanized the Africans from which they stole. Anybody who objected to this labor system was branded an outlaw, an illegal, as it were.

Constitutional Judo

By Giordano Bruno
Neithercorp Press

In all things, there exists a ‘point of balance’; a line that, if crossed, results in the sudden and expedient loss of our self-determinism and makes us subservient to the fickle whims of social, political, and physical gravity. We are “thrown” into the air, as it were, and the landing is rarely ever pleasant. The U.S. Constitution and the civil liberties it outlines is itself one of these historic points of balance.

If You Go down to the Church Today…

By A.C. Storr
New Matilda (Australia)

In the middle of its biggest sex abuse scandal yet, A.C. Storr thought the Catholic Church might take a moment on Good Friday to feel for the suffering of its victims. She was wrong.

On Good Friday I went to church. I was raised Catholic, and while the storytelling and fantastical aura of religion suited me well in early childhood, it took a mere 12 years for me to fall out of love with the Church for good. On discovering in Grade 6 that I myself could not be the Pope because I had a dirty vagina, all magic drained out of the Church structure and I saw what I largely still see — a hierarchy that feeds on the vulnerability of the uneducated to maintain an insular kingdom for arrogant men. I didn’t want to be a part of it at 12, and I told my idealist parents that if women can’t lead it, it’s not for me. My mother followed suit a few years later.

So I guess in going to mass on Good Friday I was not what you’d call a neutral observer. Continue reading

Haiti the Spectacle

By Robert C. Koehler

Haiti falls apart and America’s journalists are on the ground, bringing us the spectacle of devastation. We care, we donate, we shake our heads in horror at the human toll of poverty.

A bare foot sticks out of a pile of cinder blocks.

“They’ve been digging for five hours,” says Anderson Cooper. He sticks his mike in the rubble. Oh my God, she’s alive. We can hear her screaming! “They only have this one shovel.”

OK, freeze frame. Something is so wrong with this picture, this moment: to be watching — live! — in comfortable detachment as a group of men dig desperately, by hand and with that single shovel, to free a 15-year-old girl trapped in the wreckage of a building. Continue reading

What did the Supreme Court just do to our democracy?

By FreeSpeechForPeople.org

On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that corporations are entitled to spend unlimited funds in our elections.

The First Amendment was never intended to protect corporations.

This cannot stand. Sign up to protest this decision and protect our democracy! Free speech is for people — not corporations.

Fuck SCOTUS and Corporate Rule: Let’s Amend the Constitution

By Alliance for Democracy

Sign the Petition to Amend the Consitution

Alliance for Democracy joins the national cry of outrage over the U.S. Supreme Court opinion allowing unlimited corporate money for political campaigns and affirming the rights of corporations as “persons.”

Today’s Supreme Court opinion in Citizens United v. the Federal Election Commission, a campaign finance law case, opens the floodgates to allow unlimited corporate spending to influence state and federal elections and further entrenches corporate power in our nation.  This 5-4 decision overturns previous Court decisions that limited corporate money in politics. In lifting the previous federal ban on corporate “independent expenditures,” the court has overridden laws in 22 states banning “independent expenditures” by corporations and unions.

Dred Scott Redux: Obama and the Supremes Stand Up for Slavery

By Chris Floyd

While we were all out doing our Christmas shopping, the highest court in the land quietly put the kibosh on a few more of the remaining shards of human liberty.

It happened earlier this week, in a discreet ruling that attracted almost no notice and took little time. In fact, our most august defenders of the Constitution did not have to exert themselves in the slightest to eviscerate not merely 220 years of Constitutional jurisprudence, but also centuries of agonizing effort to lift civilization a few inches out of the blood-soaked mire that is our common human legacy. They just had to write a single sentence.

Worldwide Slavery

5shacklesThe abolition of slavery world wide is far from complete.  Despite international and domestic laws against the practice of slavery, there are now some twenty-seven million people living as slaves.  More than nine million are children.  Every year vast numbers of  human beings are trafficked both internationally and within national borders.  In fact it is now cheaper to purchase a slave than it has ever been at any point in history.
