Obama and Bibi: YES YOU CAN End the Occupation

Only a viable and sustainable Palestinian state will equate to security for Israel; and as Palestine has always been in the belly of Israel, politicians who want to maintain power had better seize these days and End the Occupation for the times have already changed.

9/11: Open Letter Challenge to ADL’s Abe Foxman

Mr. Foxman, that criticism of Israel is by definition a manifestation of anti-Semitism, is Zionist propaganda nonsense for a blackmail purpose, the purpose being to silence criticism and prevent informed and honest debate about Israel’s policies and actions.

Candidate for U.S. House Advocates Peoples Takoever

When I was a novice reporter six years ago, I learned that it was at the end of the interview that you heard the beginning of the story. As I begin my search for a District in Florida to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives, I learned that lesson again and was also inspired to go this way to get my political message out to we the people of the USA that we have it in our power to take over the House of Congress.

Conjecture on Israel’s Changing Demographics

If the historical goal of the state of Israel is to provide the world’s Jews a secure national home, a place of refugee in a world of real or potential anti-Semitism, it seems to have failed.

SIBEL EDMONDS: Let It Cut Both Ways-US Foreign Aid & State...

In June 2010 our rights and liberties suffered a major setback. The United States Supreme Court upheld the broad application of a federal law making it a crime to provide "material support" to designated "foreign terrorist organizations" (FTOs). Under this law individuals face up to 15 years in prison for providing "material support" to FTOs, even if their work is intended to promote peaceful, lawful objectives. "Material support" is defined to include any "service," "training," "expert advice or assistance" or "personnel." This setback should cut both ways, that is, if we had a bit more application of justice and a tad less of hypocrisy, and of course, far more straight forward information delivery. What do I mean by having this setback cut both ways? Terrorism is not limited to individual(s), groups, organizations; it includes nation states. A bunch of ego-driven scholars or a few anal-retentive political analysts may want to split hairs as to whether or not ‘state sponsored terrorism’ constitutes terrorism, but hey, since 2002 their elected presidents have been accusing nations of being terrorists or axis of evil, and for this, for now, I am going to go with that.

Cowardly Congress Thinks Backing White House Plays It Safe

While the Constitution’s Article I, Section 8, invests Congress with the power “to declare War,” the law school dean points out this has been largely ignored since President Harry Truman in 1950 “de facto changed the Constitution so that not the Congress, but the President, and he alone, makes the decision on war.”

Liberals Present ‘Pentagon’s New Strategy’

Establishment liberals are presenting President Obama's Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) released this week as a break from the Bush-Cheney-neocon policy. Fair to say that the jury is out.

Not Holding Leaders Responsible For Crimes Only Breeds More War

In Viet Nam, for example, U.S. leaders caused the deaths of thousands of their own men and several million Vietnamese after they already knew they had made probably the worst mistake in American history. Velvel writes, “Our top military men create(d) free fire zones where civilians are killed on sight, and bomb and defoliate to the nth degree.” In Iraq, our leaders unleashed “a horrendous reign of terror from the skies, create a thus far thoroughly destabilized post-war society, and then, when all their other myths have shown to be myths, retroactively justify the war by saying that we got rid of an admittedly horrible dictator, his equally horrible sons, and his entirely horrible government.”

Why is America In So Many Wars? Part 1

Since World War Two, an indisputably necessary conflict, Velvel points out the U.S. has fought the Korean War, the Viet Nam War, secret wars in Laos and Cambodia, the First Gulf War, Afghanistan, and the Second Gulf War in Iraq. It has also invaded, bombed or “quarantined” Panama, Grenada, Cuba, Haiti, Somalia, the Sudan, Bosnia, Kosovo, Serbia and Libya, and has “declared” a global war on terrorists.
