Jeb Bush Exploring White House Bid
Stephen Lendman: Another possible Bush presidency should rile freedom-lovers everywhere... The Bush family dynasty reflects a legacy of crime. Deceit. Serial lying. Public betrayal. Neocon extremism. Serving wealth, power and privilege exclusively. At the expense of social justice... Disdain for human and civil rights. Mindless of rule of law principles. Imperial wars called liberating ones. Mass murder and destruction...

Haiti: Time for Clinton and Co to Pack and Go
Once more, we have tasted salt. We have mourned our dead from the earthquake and the cholera epidemic. The collective depression, the temporary zombification has lifted. It is time to evict the occupier and pursue the traitors and enemies of our independence. No exception... This is not the first time the United States has occupied Haiti and been evicted from it...

Plummeting Oil Prices
Stephen Lendman: As this is written, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude down to below $56 a barrel. Brent at $61. From a high of $115 in January.... Market manipulation. Saudi overproduction a big contributor. Protecting its market share. Targeting US shale oil production... Hitting Russia hard. Per secret agreement between John Kerry and Saudi King Abdullah....

Two Questions, One Answered?
Martin LeFevre: Like many adults, I feel I misspent my youth. But one true thing stands---the philosophical investigation I doggedly pursued for 15 years, through various jobs, colleges and moves. It flowed from this question: Why are humans generating increasing disorder and chaos, when we evolved along with all other life, and life moves in dynamic order and wholeness?...

Architects of Atrocity Remain at Large, and Unrepentant
Isn't it time to stop pretending our government was legitimately elected in 2000 or that it represented legitimate authority when it lied us into war, torture, looting the U.S. treasury, promoting economic and environmental lawlessness, and all the other social and political depravities we've been subjected to?...

The Spiritual Is Political
Martin LeFevre: After over 24 hours of hard rain, and despite an ongoing steady downpour, we entered the parkland for a walk, carrying umbrellas and bundled against the chill. Crossing the footbridge, the brown, frothing waterway made a mockery of the word creek...

The Sordid Contra-Cocaine Saga
It's been a decade since the big U.S. newspapers hounded journalist Gary Webb to suicide because he exposed their failure to stop one of Ronald Reagan's worst crimes: drug trafficking by the Nicaraguan Contras. The sordid saga finally was told by a Hollywood movie... Visit Website ]

Torture and Police Killings Cut From the Same Cloth of Injustice
Will Bunch: When you ask why are so many people out in the street (at the start of winter, no less), I'd say we've reached a tipping point, in the original, pre-Malcolm Gladwell use of the term. The scale that's tipping, simply, is justice. It was already going over when the torture report hit like a ton of bricks...

America's Illusion of Free Will
The mainstream U.S. news media's narrow parameters, especially on foreign policy issues, give the American people little opportunity to engage in meaningful debate or to influence outcomes. Typically, public perceptions are managed and consensus is manufactured, as Lawrence Davidson writes...(A close consideration of our social and cultural milieu reveals strong deterministic influences - particularly the mass media and its engines of advertising and selective news dissemination.)...

Bring Forth What Is Within You
Martin LeFevre: Sometimes, you don't need to read any further than the headlines. "The Torture Report Reminds Us What America Was," reads the title of an op-ed piece in the New York Times today, thereby announcing an inability to make the connection between the supersaturated spiritual depression in America today, and the evil the Bush-Cheney Administration manifested and the Obama Administration has continued, minus torture...

Torture Has No Place in US Society
Thom Hartmann: "The character of our country has to be measured in part, not by what we do when things are easy, but what we do when things are hard."... Those were the words of President Obama, when he was asked over the summer about the CIA's use of torture in the months and years after 9/11...

Why the Founding Fathers thought banning Torture Foundational to the US Constitution
Juan Cole: The Bill of Rights of the US Constitution is full of prohibitions on torture, as part of a general 18th century Enlightenment turn against the practice... We know what the Founding Fathers believed. They believed in universal rights. And they believed in basic principles of human dignity. Above all, they did not think the government had the prerogative of behaving as it pleased. It doesn't have the prerogative to torture... Visit Website ]

The system isn't broken, it's racist by design
When the police and other state-sanctioned vigilantes are killing African Americans at a rate of one every 28 hours, people won't accept toothless reforms meant to quell anger while doing absolutely nothing to punish, imprison and disarm the real menace--the agents of the state who terrorize African American communities with impunity...

Creating a New Kind of Culture
Martin LeFevre: There are about 6000 languages spoken in the world today, many of them by dwindling groups of indigenous people. By the end of this century, it is projected that there will be only 600. What is the significance of this loss, and does it parallel the loss of diversity in the natural world?...

Ferguson Killing Illuminates How Sociopaths in Power Act
Ferguson was a corrupt paradigm of a corrupt nation long before a homicidal cop executed an unarmed black teenager... Wilson's version of events relies for its justification on others believing he was in reasonable fear for his own life even though Wilson himself says he was in an unreasoning state. For his justification to be believable, Wilson has to be a head case... Visit Website ]
