Madison Kimrey Tells NC Gov, ‘This Is Not Leadership”

Editor’s note: When Joshua Kricker sent us a link to this video this afternoon, we were astonished. At center stage in this video, shot on October 28th at a “Moral Monday” protest in Raleigh, North Carolina’s capital, is 12 year old Madison Kimrey from Burlington, NC. She’s been in the news a lot recently, both locally and nationally, for publicly opposing NC’s Republican governor Pat McCrory’s support of voter suppression laws with poise and grace, not to mention intelligence. Huffington Post says, “This 12-year-old will restore your faith in the […]

Moving Three Minute Short From Thailand

Editor’s note: Yesterday we came across this three minute short, which evidently ran as a television commercial in Thailand, and were so moved by it that we’re passing it on to you. If everyone lived their lives like the people in this film, we figure we wouldn’t need laws or politics. Yup, it’s a pipe dream, but one worthy of consideration, we think. If you’re at work don’t worry. Go ahead and watch; it’s subtitled. You can keep the volume down. If you’re on Facebook, be sure to share so […]

Could Carlin Be Talking About Syria?

The Other Sunday Funnies Welcome to a new feature on If This Be Treason. The Other Sunday Funnies isn’t what comes buried in the advertising section of your Sunday newspaper. Nor is it intended to mimic the clip feature that some of you have come to expect at the end of ABC’s This Week every Sunday morning, which basically just offers up some stand-up one liners from late night TV, mostly of a populist and reactionary nature–anything for a yuk you know. In our feature here, we’re hoping to bring […]

What Our Government Won’t Do For Monsanto

Editor’s note: We just found this write-up linking to this video on Facebook. This doesn’t surprise us, of course. Monsanto seems to own our government now. That’s the only thing that would explain how our government employees seem to work for Monsanto. Those of us who lived through the 1960s understand clearly that our government was never ours. Now, our government isn’t even pretending to be. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqXCboEL-7k An Illinois beekeeper who spent the last 15 years researching the effects of Monsanto’s Roundup on bees, and compiling extensive evidence documenting that […]

Panel Discussion on the Future of Tibet

This video was brought to our attention by our friend and bodhisattva in training Josh Vernon. This is a panel discussion that includes The Representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to the Americas which took place at Bard College in Kingston, New York. httpv://youtu.be/L6o8R3LOuG8

The Ad Exxon Doesn’t Want You To See

We found this ad posted on Other98. It’s an interesting pull-no-punches ad, evidently crowdfunded and scheduled to be aired nationwide this past Tuesday night until it was pulled–according to Other98: The following 30-second climate change ad has already aired in three major media markets across the United States, to great acclaim as the first nationally crowdfunded climate change PSA. It was scheduled to play during Fox’s State of the Union coverage this past Tuesday. Then Exxon sent a single email, and it was unilaterally taken off the air. Here’s the […]

It’s Time For A Monsanto Movie Party

It never fails. Every time we post on our Facebook page about the danger posed by Monsanto and their GMO products, we’re inundated by some right wingers who’re trying to pretend to be “reasonable” calling for more specific information. Their argument is that we need to be diligent when it comes to GMOs, but that the scientific evidence is that most of Monsanto’s genetically engineered products are perfectly safe and that the company is hard at work assuring that their products do no damage, either to the health of the […]

Video: Police State In Anaheim, CA 7/29

Editor’s note: If you’ve been following the news you know that many citizens of Anaheim are unhappy after the police shot and killed an unarmed 25 year old, Manuel Diaz. He was shot in the back of the head while laying face down on the ground after having taken a shot in the leg, also by the police. The next day, Joel Acevedo was shot and killed by the police, after he allegedly fired at them. So far this year, the police have been involved in seven shootings, five of […]

Coaching Mitt

Editor’s note: How about a little political satire. Here’s a send up of the planning session to prepare the Mittmeister for his little visit to the NAACP: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duflrDyp9ok&feature=player_embedded
