Climate Change in the American Empire & Alternatives in Leadership & Protest
Simon Turner: NASA stated this: that 97% of climate scientists agree global warming is human-caused ... If perpetrators like Exxon-Mobil and Shell knew decades ago about climate change, which they did, and doubled down on hiding, isn’t it the intention to see such devastation? ... The Stop Ecocide International campaign is pushing for International Criminal Court jurisdiction over ecocide. ... The administration now making the payments is overseeing a record pace of approvals of new oil and gas wells on US public land. ... Was Marx too nice about capitalist culpability?... Visit Website ]

Are We Stuck With Cement?
Mike Disabato: Cement is perhaps the most essential ingredient in an economy’s growth. ... the cement industry is the second-largest industrial emitter of carbon after the steel industry ... And when accounting for its use in human-made structures, it is responsible for more than a third of the world’s carbon emissions ... As long as the world clamors to build, the cement industry has little incentive to disrupt the status quo...(Article from 2018) Visit Website ]

Remembering Wounded Knee 1890 & 1973: an Interview With Bill Means
Dennis Bernstein - Miguel Gavilan Molina: Well, it was on this day. Which now, of course, we call National Day of Mourning. December 29th in 1890. This is when the 7th Cavalry, out of revenge for the Battle of Greasy Grass, known as the Battle of Little Bighorn, in which we did a sensitivity training session for Lieutenant Colonel Custer, who you might recall was defeated there on the plains of Montana. ... When they heard a gunshot, it gave them an excuse to start firing with no warning, nothing. No kind of a—they just had set up for that evening for the massacre the night before. And so, they started firing. And the end result was over 300 men, women, and children were slaughtered on the plains there... Visit Website ]

Pearl Harbor: Don’t Drink the Water or Believe the Myths
David Swanson: If you live near Pearl Harbor, there’s delicious U.S. Navy jet fuel in your drinking water. ... The U.S. government planned, prepared for, and provoked a war with Japan for years, and was in many ways at war already, waiting for Japan to fire the first shot, when Japan attacked the Philippines and Pearl Harbor. ... What gets lost in the questions of exactly who knew what when in the days before those attacks, and what combination of incompetence and cynicism allowed them to happen, is the fact that major steps had indisputably been taken toward war but none had been taken toward peace...

How Conservatives Manufacture Ghost Stories to Protect the Powerful
Nathan J. Robinson: In each generation, conservatives manufacture a new threat to civilization, from communism to Iraq’s WMDs to critical race theory. The right depends on the fear of a scary other for its political success because its actual policies are so unpopular. ... Hirschman identified some common species of right-wing arguments. He called these arguments perversity, futility, and jeopardy. ... Perversity is the argument that a given social reform will have the opposite of its intended effects. ... Futility is the argument that a given reform will not accomplish its stated purpose ... Jeopardy is the argument that a given reform will jeopardize existing society... Visit Website ]

JFK in His Own Words: A Selective Sampler from His Speeches
November 8, 1963: As I said recently at the United Nations, even little wars are dangerous in this nuclear world. The long labor of peace is an under taking for every nation, large and small, for every member of the Family of Man. “In this effort none of us can remain unaligned. To this goal none can be uncommitted.” If the Family of Man cannot achieve greater unity and harmony, the very planet which serves as its home may find its future in peril... Visit Website ]

Cultural Revolutions - From Edward Snowden
Freedom is not a goal, but a direction ... I was most recently enlivened by a book, so I can’t think of anything more fitting for my return to this format than an account of it: 1000 Years of Joys and Sorrows, by the great Chinese artist Ai Wei-Wei. ... a memoir of a man attempting to understand his country, even as his country is trying, or purporting to try, to understand him—through surveillance and investigations, interrogations and detentions. ... the political battle with the highest stakes will always be waged against the imposition of a monoculture ... The vaccine against monoculture is tolerance... Visit Website ]

Was Radical Minnesota Senator Paul Wellstone Murdered to Secure Republican Control of the United States Senate?
Jeremy Kuzmarov: "killed in a 2002 plane crash just 10 days before a crucial election he was likely to win" ... Although officially designated an “accident,” could a new investigation reclassify it as an “assassination,” placing Wellstone in the ever-lengthening line of murdered political figures ... Wellstone had in the past questioned the abuses of the CIA and was skeptical of the intelligence surrounding 9/11 and the Iraq War. ... More suspicion about the possibility of a cover-up was aroused by a) the destruction of records of planes landing in Duluth the morning of the Wellstone crash, b) missing information from logs about those at the crash scene, and c) the NTSB’s cancelation of a public meeting for comments from citizens about the crash...

How an Ancient Irrigation Method Makes Sustainable Life Possible in the U.S. Southwest
Erika Schelby: In the midst of unsettling weather events like these, it is good to look at something that works in the Southwest: the homegrown water management acequias. .... The ancient acequia irrigation system—a “community-controlled irrigation system”—has proven to be a lifeline for small-scale farmers in the Southwest. ... The acequia method appears to be simple, but it is, in fact, quite sophisticated. A superb engineering feat, it works with the help of “gravity-fed ditches” that utilize the lay of the land and depend on various other factors such as season changes and the melting of the snow. ... The earthen ditches enhance water seepage into the soil, refill the aquifer, create lush narrow wetlands, and boost biodiversity... Visit Website ]

The Twenty Year Shadow of 9/11 (Part 2): Why Did Key U.S. Officials Protect the Alleged 9/11 Plotters?
Aaron Good, Ben Howard and Peter Dale Scott: Before examining the details of the 9/11 plot, it is worth noting the extent to which the CIA, FBI, and NSA have acted to protect members of al Qaeda in the past. ... “something apparently was dropped somewhere, and we don’t know where that was.” ... In the early weeks of what would become a decades-long coverup, Wilshire (CIA Bin Laden Issue Station Deputy Chief) was attempting to protect himself and his colleagues by asserting that incompetence, not protection of a joint CIA-Saudi operation, was responsible for the CIA’s failures. .... over the past decade, a number of researchers have identified a pattern of deception and obfuscation... links between Saudi (GID) intelligence agents, Prince Bandar, and the alleged 9/11 hijackers are strongly suggestive of a GID role in the handling of the hijackers...

The Twenty Year Shadow of 9/11: U.S. Complicity in the Terror Spectacle and the Urgent Need to End It
Aaron Good, Ben Howard and Peter Dale Scott: Outside of the U.S., the consequences of the 2001 terror attacks were even more dramatic. ... The invasions and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq have killed over a million people, displaced tens of millions, and cost trillions of dollars—all with no discernable improvement to U.S. national security. ... Furthermore, both wars were launched on very dubious grounds ... it should be noted that both of the 9/11 Wars were long in planning within the deep state—or if one prefers, within the U.S. foreign policy establishment or foreign policy blob. ... the 9/11 Wars were both prescribed by the U.S. hegemonic grand strategy consensus that was emerging throughout the 1990s...

Russia and the United States: The Forgotten History of a Brotherhood
Cynthia Chung: It is a sad reality that most Americans have forgotten that the Russians were their brothers during the American Civil War, a union that was not only based from a geopolitical stratagem but much more importantly was based on a common view of humankind ... However, nothing would attest to the solidarity between Russia and the United States further than the confirmed assurance from Russia that it would actively interfere if Britain and France were to take military action against the Union and for the side of the Confederacy. ... President Lincoln was given the go ahead to publicise Russia’s support for the Union and this was sufficient to cause Britain and France to step back... Visit Website ]

New Evidence Implicates CIA, LAPD, FBI and Mafia as Plotters in Elaborate “Hit” Plan to Prevent RFK From Ever Reaching White House
Jeremy Kuzmarov: The case against Sirhan being the lone gunman can be summarized in six key points: ... 1. More Bullets Were Fired Than Were in Sirhan’s Gun ... 2. Kennedy’s Killer Shot Him from the Back, Not the Front ... (L.A. County Coroner Thomas Noguchi’s report ... hit by three bullets from the rear, including one in his head behind his right ear) ... 3.

I Awakened Here When the Earth Was New
I am a child of the Dreamtime People
Part of this land, like the gnarled gumtree
I am the river, softly singing
Chanting our songs on my way to the sea
My spirit is the dust-devils
Mirages, that dance on the plain

The Emerging Eurasian Alliance as an Opportunity not a Threat
Cynthia Chung: Where are we now? ... We need to grow up, and grow up fast. We cannot afford to be led by childish stories of the boogeyman and be governed by fear so easily any longer ... It is time we, the West, recognise our faults and hypocrisy. The western hegemony over the world is coming to an end and we should be happy for our brothers and sisters who have a renewed hope for a better life ... We need to correct this monstrous inability to be able to trust and love those outside the western sphere. ...
