Kucinich: The Real Reason We Are Bombing Syria

by Dennis Kucinich

Nothing better illustrates the bankruptcy of the Obama administration's foreign policy than funding groups that turn on the U.S. again and again, a neo-con fueled cycle of profits for war makers and destruction of ever-shifting "enemies."

The fact can't be refuted: ISIS was born of Western intervention in Iraq and covert action in Syria.

This Frankenstein-like experiment of arming the alleged freedom-seeking Syrian opposition created the monster that roams the region. ISIS and the U.S. have a curious relationship -- mortal enemies that, at the same time, benefit from some of the same events:

a) Ousting former Iraqi President Nouri al Maliki for his refusal to consent to the continued presence of U.S. troops in his country.

b) Regime change in Syria.

c) Arming the Kurds so they can separate from Iraq, a preliminary move to partitioning Iraq.

What a coincidence for war-profiteering neo-cons and the war industry, which has seen its stock rise since last week's congressional vote to fund the rapid expansion of war. We have met the enemy and he isn't only ISIS, he is us.

Woman arrested for possessing spoon covered with dried Spaghettios

Posted on September 25, 2014 by Site Staff

GAINESVILLE, GA — An innocent woman had several months of her life destroyed when she was arrested and charged with a felony because of a spaghetti-encrusted spoon found in her possession.

Ashley Gabrielle Huff, 23, had no criminal history and insisted that “there’s no way in hell” that there could have been any drugs in her possession during a traffic stop in July. Nonetheless, a Gainesville police officer honed in on a spoon that was “on her or near her” in the vehicle in which she was riding as a passenger.

Madea Benjamin Of Code Pink: "We need more visible OUTRAGE"

...and she's RIGHT!

Where are we? If the Republicans hijacked the Tea Party, then those Judeo-Christian religious zealots are pacified with war against Muslims, because they put their religion and their allegiance to Israel ahead of their arguments that we've been "Taxed Enough Already", and Sarah Palin can keep them all occupied for the time being.

But we're the Libertarian-wing, the disgusted former Republicans who went for Ron Paul all the way to the convention in Tampa before they cheated and slammed the door on us! And if anyone was the ultimate fiscal conservative, if anyone thought these wars of aggression were stupid, wasteful, and a dangerous threat to us and our liberties at home; if anyone had a broken heart for returning veterans from these unconstitutional wars for bankers and dollar hegemony, their lack of care, their suicide rate etc., it was OUR GUY Ron Paul.

And you know what, Madea here is right - where are we? We who hate these wars because we know exactly what they are, should be right there with her when she shows up at these hearings. We'll rally behind Adam Kokesh, get all riled up when he makes a speech or organizes a protest, but we won't with her group of activists?

Where are the OathKeepers, and our other groups? Remnants of Occupy? We have common ground with these people; we HATE the wars, and that, our foreign policy(which has brought about draconian domestic policy that seeks to threaten us to silence) is what has been taking this nation down the tubes since 9/11!

She is begging us here to join her, and BE HEARD in the halls of power!

God Bless Congresswoman Barbara Lee - One of the few Peace Makers in Congress

Today on MSNBC she said that there should have been a debate in congress and a congressional authorization for the military actions Obama is doing now.

While most every other Democrat sides with Obama on the war just because their man is in office, she has the principles to stand up for the Constitution.

She also bashed Bush's Iraq war and his authorization to use force as Un-Constitutional.

The Crawford Walmart Shooting Video has been released


Here's a longer version below that shows the 911 call overlayed with the surveillance. This is graphic and it's disturbing just how much of a not at all threat this kid was or even appeared to be, just leaning on something he picked up in an aisle, talking on his phone, lied about by some drama-seeking 911 caller, then shot dead by police.

U.S. Forest Service says media needs photography permit in wilderness areas

"The U.S. Forest Service has tightened restrictions on media coverage in vast swaths of the country's wild lands, requiring reporters to pay for a permit and get permission before shooting a photo or video in federally designated wilderness areas.

Under rules being finalized in November, a reporter who met a biologist, wildlife advocate or whistleblower alleging neglect in any of the nation's 100 million acres of wilderness would first need special approval to shoot photos or videos even on an iPhone.

The Russia They Lost

Original article
by Dmitry Sokolov-Mitrich Translated by: Daniil Mihailovich

We loved America. I remember, we did. When we were teens, growing up in the early 90s; most of my friends the same age did not even question their attitude toward Western civilization. It was great, how could it be otherwise?
