ART OF DISTORTION: Challenging The Conventional Western Narrative On Terrorism

Everyone who participates in political debates sometimes has their arguments publicly misrepresented. Like many writers, if I noted and refuted every case where that happened to me, I would have time for nothing else. But sometimes the distortions are so fundamental and obvious - as well as pernicious - that they are worth examining. I had intended to write today about the reaction to this week's War on Ter ...

WHY STOCKHOLM IS BURNING And Why The World Should Care

For the best part of a week a bustling, largely immigrant dominated suburb in the Swedish capital Stockholm has been gripped by violence and anger formerly unknown to an international audience which thinks of the country as a sleepy Nordic backwater where nothing much happens. That image is wrong: Sweden has a contemporary history of violence against its most senior leaders, the Prime Minister Oluf Palme – ...

Alien Material On The Moon?

Unusual minerals found in craters on the Moon may be alien, a new study suggests. The claim is made in a paper published today in Nature Geoscience that uses computer modelling to show these rare minerals may not be indigenous to the Moon as previously believed.

RESIST: The Attempt To Destroy The Individual

“What is finished is the idea that this great country is dedicated to the freedom and flourishing of every individual in it. It’s the individual that’s finished. It’s the single, solitary human being that’s finished. It’s every single one of you out there that’s finished. Because this is no longer a nation of independent individuals. It’s a nation of some two hundred odd million transistorized, deodorized, ...

BEHIND THE SCENES: How the Shadow Government Took Over [VIDEO]

The U.S. government was the target of a Bankster Coup in the 1930s. Led by Prescott Bush, father to former U.S. President George Herbert Walker Bush, the fascist coup would have succeeded were it not for whistle blower General Smedley Butler. But what failed then has since succeeded. It is now provable that the coup which failed in the 1930s was carefully reorganized and implemented in the decades since, wi ...

COMMON CORE: Nationalizes and Dumbs Down Public School Curriculum

In addition to shredding civil liberties, launching a utopian global war for democracy, and going on a spending spree that would make LBJ blush, the so-called “conservative” Bush administration dramatically increased federal control over education via the “No Child Left Behind” act. During my time in Congress I heard nothing but complaints about this law from teachers, administrators, and, most importantly, ...
