capitoleflag.jpg image Egypt: Army intervenes, Mubarak forced to step down quill, Friday, Feb 11 2011, 9:09pm
A wave of euphoria swept through Cairo’s symbolic Tahrir Square after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was forced to resign and hand over power to the military. However, the joy and euphoria of the moment may be short-lived if the PEOPLE do not remain VIGILANT and INSIST on REFORM and REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT – we should never forget the old adage, particularly in the current situation, “a change of leaders is the joy of fools!” (story and 1 image)

text The USA is only succeeding in ‘locking down’ its OWN population stan, Wednesday, Feb 9 2011, 9:01pm
Popular Arab revolts demonstrate clearly that the hold the USA once had on the crucial Middle East and North Africa is (rapidly) WEAKENING. The same could also be said for other interfered with territories, especially stolen Balkan provinces, which could be returned to their rightful, sovereign owners ‘overnight!’ (story and 1 comment)

text Egypt Teeters jalal, Saturday, Feb 5 2011, 7:46pm
Despite all the machinations of the CIA/Washington and the cooperation of a thoroughly corrupt Egyptian leadership – which includes ‘Mubarak appointee,’ to vice-president, Omar Suleiman, head of the Egyptian Secret Service, known internationally as an arm of the TORTURING, ‘RENDERING,’ CRIMINAL CIA -- the FATE of the Nation rests wholly in the hands of the people, as is the case with ALL Arabic speaking NATIONS.

Mubarak, if evil had a face image Headline of the Century Chris McGreal via stylus, Tuesday, Feb 1 2011, 9:32pm
If you had doubts and required additional PROOF that WORLD governments have been HIJACKED by a cooperating cabal of CRIMINALS and LUNATICS, then choke on this story from The Guardian UK. It DAMNS not only Mubarak but Blair, his coalition of WILLING CRIMINALS, Bush, Howard and every other puppet politician alive today -- you reading this Obama, you despicable, tap-dancing, CRIMINAL FRAUD?

The PEOPLE will have their day of JUSTICE -- the haunting screams of MILLIONS of murdered and tortured CIVILIANS demand it! (story and 2 images)

Saudi Prince Aziz image Mid-East Dominos Falling-- protests hit Jordan quill, Tuesday, Feb 1 2011, 8:22am
Jordan’s pro-American monarch feigns reform and replaces PM following street protests. Meanwhile Saudi Royalty and other US-bought Arab ruling elites are shitting their American supplied underwear. But the penny hasn’t dropped yet! The WORLD HAS HAD ENOUGH OF AMERICAN INTERFERENCE, BRUTALITY and HYPOCRISY. The sooner NON-REPRESENTATIVE, failing governments comprehend this REALITY the easier it will be for them and the masses; voluntary resignations are certainly preferable to the hangman’s rope.

text Egypt: Indefinite general strike and 'million man march' planned staff report via gan, Monday, Jan 31 2011, 7:03am
It seems embattled puppet dictator, Mubarak, has angered Washington, as protest leaders are supported and sanctioned by the USA. An unpopular American puppet dictator has no chance without the support of Washington or the people. Let's hope the Egyptian people are aware of the machinations of the CIA and Washington and another US lackey is NOT installed as new leader! (story and 2 comments)

I can scarcely believe I (we) somehow overlooked an article by Zbigniew Brzezinski in the NYT when it first appeared in 2008. Brzezinski is arguably the leading geopolitical strategist and policy influencer for the now bereft of positive solutions and rapidly unravelling ruling financial elites. (story and 1 image)

Mark Twain image Gay American Novelist Rolls in Pink Grave snowy, Wednesday, Jan 5 2011, 10:48pm
Mark Twain, famous homosexual social commentator, journalist, raconteur, novelist and adventurer must be having a fit in fag heaven at the moment. An oft quoted Twainian statement, "the difference between the almost right word and the right word is … the difference between the lightening bug and lightning," becomes highly relevant today as the U.S., in true Orwellian mode, and without any intervention from the Capitol, flagrantly attempts to re-write American history.

Otherwise the world is laughing at this paper tiger we've become.'' (story and 1 comment)

brain.jpg image Beware of Gross Simplifications quill, Wednesday, Dec 29 2010, 7:24pm
It could easily be said that biological simplifications are ultra-conservative world views; we all remember the Nazi 'master race' and the, ‘them or us’ simplification of dubya Bush, “you’re either with us or you're with the terrorists!” Banal and simplistic statements/logic are indeed the hallmark of CONSERVATISM. It would seem that the brain function -- or rather lack thereof -- associated with the fear response relates directly to LOW LEVELS of INTELLIGENCE rather than physiology, and as our readership is well aware, knowledge dramatically reduces FEAR; put simply, we are afraid of what we do not know -- IGNORANCE in other words, as stated many times on this site, is the ‘MOTHER OF FEAR.’ (story and 2 comments and 1 image)

Can you blame the youth of the world for resorting to violent tactics in Europe and fighting fire with fire? It is understandable; however, it plays into the hands of the ruling elites and gives them EVERY excuse to tighten their already constrictor-like grip on our liberties and freedoms.

text Some Americans Lament the Rapid Decline of their Nation Michael Brenner via reed, Thursday, Dec 16 2010, 6:53pm
The casual way that Americans are shredding their liberties is breathtaking. Rights that have been revered as the nation's spiritual heirloom for 225 years are cast aside like so many disposable keepsakes. Only a people confused by runaway emotions, and forgetful of their identity, can act with such feckless abandon.

The media, by conscious design or by nature, regularly whips culture into a frenzy; it is entirely in character for this to occur. However, when this social phenomenon occurs it is easy to lose sight of the REAL engines that drive the ‘beast.’
