Don’t Hide News to Keep Trump and the Trumpets From Seeing It

Stockholm riots trump

To defeat Trump, we need to know the whole story. We also need to hold true to our values. Sadly, these days many people get all of their news from the Internet. Sadder still, many only read news stories after being directed to them by their Facebook friends. Because of this, I take great care when posting a news link on Facebook to make sure I’m linking to the best source I can find. I also take great care to make sure I’m not linking to stories with exaggerated importance — the type of story that makes a mountain out of something rather meaningless that Trump and his minions […]

The Day They Took the Gai Out of Paree

Peace For Paris

All I know for sure right now is that it’s not a good day to be a Parisian. As I write this, Paris is under siege. Currently, the confused reports from the media are putting the death toll at “over 100,” a figure that’s “sure to rise” in this organized campaign of bombings, shootings and hostage taking. That this is a terrorist attack is abundantly clear. What isn’t clear is who is behind it. The smart money says Al Qaeda, a group that we’ve been told, until today, has been […]

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 […]

The Tea Party’s Feudal Lord

It boggles my mind how the tea baggers can get it so wrong. I think most Tea Party folks probably trace their ancestry back to Europe. Most probably they imagine they originally hail from England, since once upon a time Merry Olde was considered to be our “mother country.” […]

Assange on the Run: Going Nowhere for Now

Julian Assange

Julian Assange at New Media Days 09 in Copenhagen. Courtesy New Media DaysAssange now has help, but seemingly not enough. He’s surrounded by hostile Brits and a government threatening to storm the Ecuadoran embassy where he’s holed up. Ecuador’s government has granted him political asylum and is calling the Brits’ bluff, pointedly reminding them they’re not a colony and haven’t been for quite a long time. If he does manage to escape and get his feet safely planted on Ecuadoran soil, he has a good chance of being able to […]

Revolution Hits Europe – Spain

Editor’s note: Evidently the powers that be are trying to keep this on the down low, but people in Spain have been taking to the streets for the last four days in something that looks very much like what we’ve seen in Egypt and Tunisia. This video is exceptional, upbeat and full of hope… httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIWn5FS5FkU&feature=player_embedded

Today’s Video: The Dirty F-ing Hippies Were Right!

Editor’s Note: This video makes a well told powerful statement of truth. Although this video has been avaliable on YouTube since 2009, we feel it needs to go viral. If you’re an old hippie from the sixties, don’t be afraid to shout, “We tried to tell you so!” If you grew up in this post hippie world, don’t be afraid to question why all of this is still going on, even though we tried to warn the world over forty years ago. We urge you to post this on your […]

“The man who speaks of the enemy is the enemy himself.”—Bertholt Brecht.

“There is nothing more unequal than the equal treatment of unequal people.” – Thomas Jefferson We live in a world that runs on a war based economy. Wars create jobs. When we have peace people find jobs scarce. I first discovered this several years ago when a man at one of my screenings of Leni Riefenstahl’s film, Triumph of the Will, after hearing me speak, gave me a copy of Jerry Mander’s book, Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television. […]
