Russia: Scary Bear or Barely Scary?

We are being inundated with a lot of “scary Russia” propaganda these days. At the same time, it was not that long ago that Russia was portrayed as a second-rate power, a regional as opposed to a global player, a pathetic nation with a third-world economy. So which is it? Russia big and bad? Or Russia a laughable wannabee out of its league with the big boys in the geopolitical game? Continue reading

What’s wrong with this picture?

Want to make America safe? Want to make America loved and respected throughout the world? Halt the famine that is now developing in Africa and put a permanent end to world hunger. Our nation will no longer be looked at as the propagators of death and destruction but be heralded as saviors and saints. Continue reading

No Negotiating With Terrorists

U.S. terrorism expresses itself internationally as wars, regime changes, special operations missions, economic manipulation and interference, cyber and propaganda warfare, and is implemented with the forward-basing of troops and often outright military occupation of 140 countries. While we can find fault in the workings of the loose collective of institutions which make up what is now called the Deep State, much direct blame for our terrorism can be assigned to the CIA. We now have little choice. The CIA and all traces of it must be eradicated. “No negotiating with terrorists!” Continue reading

Peace Dividend Candidates

If we really want our money back; if we want the endless wars to stop; if we want to see our country become strong, safe, solvent; if we want to reverse the barbarous, self-destructive militarization of our country and the world; if we want to end the slaughter of thousands of innocent people across the globe and be respected again as a country that promotes peace and harmony, then we only vote for candidates who sign the Peace Dividend Refund candidate contract. No compromise. No equivocation. No negotiation. No fear. Continue reading

The Peace Dividend: Could It Really Happen?

When everyday people realize they have the power to demand this fraudulently collected tax payer money back in the form of a $14,952 refund to each and every living citizen, they might just get a little excited. In fact, if the word gets around, I predict they will immediately, forcefully, uncompromisingly demand their money back — every last dollar! Therefore, I’m now convinced that if we as peace advocates make the case for the Peace Dividend with boldness and clarity, success is inevitable. Yes! It could really happen. Continue reading

The Peace Movement in America: Status Report

The world is rushing headlong toward world war, risking nuclear annihilation and the end of the human race. Eliminating geopolitical idiocy, imperial hubris, and monomaniacal delusions of conquest by challenging our warmongering elites with an effective plan of action should be what shapes and defines the struggle of those noble organizations attempting to abolish war and promote peace throughout the world. Otherwise, the next time I file an update, the response will be … “What peace movement?” Continue reading

Asymmetry

Congress can impeach a president but a president can’t impeach Congress. Thus the real locus of government power resides in the Senate and the House of Representatives. Impeaching Trump will not eliminate what Trump represents. But replacing 450 corrupt pay-for-play congressman will and is how we truly make a difference that makes a difference. Continue reading

A Nation of Relentless Savagery

We kill efficiently. We kill without remorse. We kill without hesitation. In 2016, the final year in office for our Nobel Peace Prize president, the U.S. dropped 26,171 bombs on seven countries, none of which have attacked America, none of which we are officially at war with. History will judge the U.S. as Martin Luther King, Jr. did in his historic address: “The greatest purveyor of violence in the world …” When you file your return on April 15th, recall that this is where a nice chunk of your tax dollars went last year. Continue reading

What? Are You Crazy?

What was crazy last year sometimes becomes the new normal this year. That is the source for hope that the citizens of the U.S. can get their country back on track to serve the interests of all Americans, not just the rich and powerful. Failure is guaranteed if we don’t keep our minds open to new ideas and fresh narratives. This coming year, with the inevitable crash of the economy and even more wars, we will face unprecedented challenges. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Continue reading
