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. Kennedy’s Killer Shot Him from Close Range—Sirhan Was Too Far Away ... 4. Two Guns and Two Shooters (William Harper ... before a grand jury investigating the handling of firearms evidence, concluded that two .22 caliber guns were involved in the assassination) ... 5.

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. ...

Tribes Get Creative in Teaching Tradition and Community
Stephanie Woodard: Today, Native nations are creating vibrant children’s programs, using the most up-to-date and culturally appropriate means to keep their youngsters involved in tradition and community—while still ensuring their safety in these dangerous pandemic times. ... Young tribal members have virtual links with top-notch artists and teachers; distanced heritage activities such as running, archery, dancing, and storytelling; and much more. ...

Mythmaking and the Atomic Destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
Jacques R. Pauwels: Reality: Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed to prevent the Soviets from making a contribution to the victory against Japan, which would have forced Washington to allow Moscow to participate in the postwar occupation and reconstruction of the country. ... It was also the intention to intimidate the Soviet leadership and thus to wrest concessions from it with respect to the postwar arrangements in Germany and Eastern Europe. ... Finally, it was not the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but the Soviet entry into the war against Japan, which caused Tokyo to surrender... Visit Website ]

After 100 Years, Nez Perce People Celebrate Reclaimed Land
Dianne Lugo: On Thursday, more than 150 Nez Perce (Niimiipuu) people returned and blessed part of their homeland, a hundred years after the U.S Army drove them from the Wallowa Valley in eastern Oregon. ... In direct violation of the 1855 Treaty of Walla Walla, the Nez Perce in 1877 were forced from their 7.5 million-acre homeland to a 750,000-acre reservation in Idaho. ... The Nez Perce tribe purchased a 148-acre property in Joseph, known as Am’sáaxpa, or Place of Boulders, in December but could not formally perform a blessing ceremony until Thursday due to COVID-19 concerns ... It also includes the ridge where Chief Joseph once held council.... Visit Website ]

Failure of Umpires: The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre
Anthony Cherry : One of the worst racial pogroms in U.S. history might have been prevented if city and state leaders had done their jobs responsibly ... Instead of trying to protect the Black community, Tulsa law enforcement and city officials, along with state authorities and the U.S. Army, gave carte blanche to, and even assisted, white vigilantes as they attacked and destroyed Black Tulsa. ... The perpetrators of the mob violence were subsequently granted impunity: not one white person was ever prosecuted for murder, torture, looting or arson, even though those crimes were amply documented. ... The implications of the failure of government officials—whether liberal or conservative—to serve as arbiters of justice is ultimately as significant today as it was in 1921... Visit Website ]

Black Women and American Freedom in Revolutionary America
Karen Cook Bell: What is the price of freedom? Is it worth the cost if failure means a return to slavery or death? This was a question many enslaved women asked themselves as they struggled with leaving behind family and friends to gain freedom. During the American Revolution, one-third of fugitives were enslaved women. ... Women ran away more frequently during the Revolutionary Era than at any time before or after the war due to the breakdown of oversight and state authority. ... Dunmore’s Proclamation ... offered freedom to slaves who would aid the Loyalist cause ...
