Hillary’s email revelation: France and US killed Qaddafi for his gold and oil
"It is significant that in the months running up to the UN resolution that allowed the U.S. and its allies to send troops into Libya, Muammar al-Qaddafi was openly advocating the creation of a new currency that would rival the dollar and the euro. In fact, he called upon African and Muslim nations to join an alliance that would make this new currency, the gold dinar, their primary form of money and foreign exchange... “Qaddafi’s government holds 143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver. During late March, 2011, these stocks were moved to Sabha (south west in the direction of the Libyan border with Niger and Chad); taken from the vaults of the Libyan Central Bank in Tripoli,” Blumenthal reported to Clinton...

Government Mind Control Agent Talks - MK-ULTRA, the CIA, and LSD
Originally published in Spin Magazine in 1994... In the early 1950s, the U.S. government purchased the world’s supply of LSD as just the first step in a debauched program code-named MK-ULTRA... “The objectives were behavior control, behavior anomaly-production, and counter-measures for opposition application of similar substances,” states a heavily redacted CIA document on MK-ULTRA released under a 1977 Freedom of Information Act request... (There is) evidence to support the theory that Lee Harvey Oswald was a product of MK-ULTRA... Visit Website ]

Where Gun Control Ought to Start: Disarming the Police
Paul Krane: There’s a lot of discussion going on right now about gun violence. There’s also a lot of talk about police brutality. Why, then, are the two issues raised together so rarely? In most instances, police violence is gun violence, and in a significant percentage of cases, gun violence is police violence... much of the time, police officers do not need to be armed... It’s important to note that disarming the police is a policy that’s already been put into practice elsewhere: in the United Kingdom, only a small, specially-trained minority of the police carry guns...

The Devil Capitalism Makes Us Destroy Our Planet
Gary Engler: Tell the beast we do not have to choose between jobs and the environment, that, in fact, there will be more jobs in a sustainable energy-based economy. Proclaim loudly that, if forced to choose between capitalism and the environment, we will choose the environment every glorious day on this wondrous planet... If we can just come to the understanding that an economic and political system can also be based on these ‘community values’ we would have a path to building a viable alternative to the mess we are in...

Pentagon Hypes Fear for Greater Military Spending
Stephen Lendman: America’s only enemies are ones it creates. Its war on terrorism is a shameless hoax, a pretext for endless wars of aggression... Today is the most perilous time in world history. Bipartisan US policy threatens world peace. The possibility of nuclear war should scare everyone... Disarmament should be prioritized - using public resources for economic development, job creation, and rebuilding industrial America...

Liquid Nothingness
Martin LeFevre: The brain stores memories-traces of experience-automatically. Most aren't just unnecessary; they're detrimental to seeing and being. They become the encrustations of experience as we age. Is that inevitable?... In other words, why should we accept psychological, emotional and neuronal accumulation, much less encrustation? ...

Honoring Harriet Tubman
Margaret Kimberley: If it is true that one can "turn in the grave," then Harriet Tubman is surely doing that now. Not only has her name been ruined by a dubious connection with the dollar that kept her captive, but she will share this "honor" with Andrew Jackson, enslaver and Indian killer... There is no honor for Tubman in association with Jackson. Unlike all others whose faces appear on our currency she fits the truest definition of a hero. In fact she fought against what the rest of them represent, the establishment of a settler nation that brought death and misery to millions of people... Visit Website ]

What Would Happen If We Just Gave People Money?
The idea is as simple as it is radical: Rather than concern itself with managing myriad social welfare and unemployment insurance programs, the government would instead regularly cut a no-strings-attached check to each citizen. No conditions. No questions. Everyone, rich or poor, employed or out of work would get the same amount of money. This arrangement would provide a path toward a new way of living: If people no longer had to worry about making ends meet, they could pursue the lives they want to live... Visit Website ]

Tax Avoidance 101
Stephen Lendman: The Panama Papers exposed the tip of a hugely dirty iceberg. Rich and powerful public and private figures hide wealth in tax havens to avoid paying what they owe... Governments protect their privileged class, notably America, the world’s leading tax haven... Trump and Clinton do it at the same 1209 North Orange Street Wilmington, Delaware address, along with 285,000 business firms, London’s Guardian reported...

Witnessing Death Of Fossil Fuels, Will It Take Down The Economy?
Nafeez Ahmed: Some analysts believe the hidden trillion-dollar black hole at the heart of the oil industry is set to trigger another global financial crisis, similar in scale to the Dot-Com crash... Whichever model run the scientists used, the end output was the same: the almost total displacement of fossil fuels by renewable energy sources by the end of the century; and, as a result, the transformation and localisation of economic activity... The question is whether the transition to a post-carbon energy system—the acceptance of the inevitable death of the oil economy—will occur fast enough to avoid climate catastrophe... are we going to join with others to plant the seeds of viable post-carbon societies for the next generations of human-beings, or are we going to stand in the way of that viable future?...

New York Voting Fiasco Just the Warm-up for the November Game
Greg Palast: Buckle up, America. The voting demolition derby that was the New York primary on Tuesday was merely the crash test for the coming voting wreckage in November: a carefully planned pile up... In Brooklyn alone, over 125,000 names were quietly scrubbed from the voter rolls in the five months leading up to the primary... To put it in prospective, the number of voters purged equals about half of the number who got to vote... Visit Website ]

Electoral Politics and the Illusion of Control
William Hawes: What is desperately needed is a shift in worldview to promote government that sees its job as not simply to tax and legislate, but to also support healthy life-world systems. Also, promoting humble and dedicated leaders who are stewards of community and the Earth, who do not insist on blatant exploitation of distant nations and pillaging resources, would go a long way. This cannot be done within the confines of the Democratic and Republican parties, who thrive on domination, coercion, control, and manipulation of public interests... Visit Website ]

Exposing 60 Minutes Cover-up
Martin LeFevre: When I was young, America's premier TV newsmagazine, 60 minutes, did hard-hitting political exposés. These days half the segments are schlock. That was tolerable until it crossed the line into propaganda and cover-up, as Scott Pelley did last night with a segment entitled "Gold Star Parents." ... Ironically, 60 minutes cut its teeth by helping to expose the Watergate cover-up under Richard Nixon. Now here it is indulging in the very definition of cover-up with regard to the Iraq war...

How To Survive During a Dark Age
Martin LeFevre: A major American newspaper recently featured an article entitled, "A New Dark Age Looms."... A dark age does not occur because of a lack of knowledge however, but a lack of civilization. Knowledge is not the sine qua non of civilization; civility and fellow feeling are... The first secret to surviving a dark age (that is, inwardly surviving, not outwardly surviving by becoming one of the walking dead) is to think in longer terms than just one's own lifespan...

Science and Sublimity
Martin LeFevre: When the mind and heart effortlessly grow quiet, one comes into contact with the silence that precedes and encompasses all sound and noise. There is something unnamable beyond thought, but obviously thought must be completely quiet to contact it. Using words, it's difficult, if not impossible to give even an intimation of that sublimity, indeed sacredness that lay beyond all words...
