Vote Independent or Stay Home

Vote Independent or Stay Home by Stephen Lendman Voting for Obama or Romney is like choosing between death by hanging or firing squad. Either way you're dead. The same goes for choosing Republicans or Democrats. Each party replicates the other. On issues mattering most, not a dime's worth of difference separates them. They're pro-corporate, pro-war,...

Caught in the Act

Caught in the Act by Stephen Lendman Washington wages direct and proxy wars dirty. Favored allies are cold-blooded killers. Cutthroats are America's favorites. The more vicious the better.

Profile of a Police State

People have no say.... Continue Reading →

Predicting Protracted Hard Times

Predicting Protracted Hard Times by Stephen Lendman It works the same way every time. Bad policies assure bad results.

Beware Post-Elections

Beware Post-Elections by Stephen Lendman Electoral priorities feature rhetoric, not new adventurism advocacy likely to rile voters. Post-election, anything goes. The Middle East pot boils.

Nonetheless, it shows no signs of ending.... Continue Reading →

Supreme Court Spurns Justice

Greek Whistleblower/Journalist Risks Imprisonment
