Vietnam: Decades of Liars Blacken the Names o...

DYDE57453534The article below was written a decade ago. It began with a flash of anger as an Obama appointee, Senator James Webb, had just published an interview about his service in Vietnam, one bestowing himself with honors and position that real combat vets cringed to read about. At this…

Europe Trying to Wing It

MIGR453453422

Although relatively small in size, ‘Europe’ or, as I prefer to call it, the Eurasian Peninsula, which has throughout history been a fractious place, is threatened with implosion by several major problems that it appears incapable of handling. First is the near-impossibility of hearing each other’s financial woes when East and West…

The Wizard War Against Humanity, the Threat o...

MANU5653452Were universities, think tanks and the mainstream media to be believed, science halted all advances in 1970. All “magic” has gone into video games and mobile devices while gas guzzling pickup trucks and fake cancer treatments remain virtually unchanged. The moon remains “unvisited”…

The Problem is America: The Malignant Cultura...

AMPI65645222What is wrong with the American people? After several years of horrific policy toward the waking world, democracy’s standard bearers seem to be drowning in a lake of selfishness. Distracted, apathetic, or simply dumbed and numbed by unrelenting propaganda, the most admired…

Trump’s Curious Problem with the Media

6463453222

One of the strangest things about the Trump Presidency is that he excoriates the media for mocking him, claiming that the press is ‘the enemy of the people’, while for progressives, the press is still not going its job by failing to call out the slide toward fascism. The fact that ‘the left’ broadly speaking is still seen as the devil incarnate…

Why Is Pentagon Weaponizing Insects?

NEO JOURNAL COLLAGEThere is strong evidence that the Pentagon, through its research and development agency, DARPA, is developing genetically modified insects that would be capable of destroying agriculture crops of a potential enemy. The claim has been denied by DARPA, but leading biologists have sounded…

Magic Imperialism and the Great American Wall

GAW7456422You all know how the saying goes: “Poor Mexico – too far from God, too close to the United States”. This proud, beautiful and deep part of the world has been plundered, ravished and humiliated for many centuries, first by the Europeans (both the Spaniards and French), then by…

The Democrats’ Problem with Power Boomerangs

SMTR7452312Barely a week after Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder called for Democrats to get tough, both were the targets of pipe bombs, together with several other Democratic political figures, the day after President Trump goaded his followers to go after ‘the left-wing mob’, using the term by which Republicans have long referred…

Laos – China is Building, West is Destroying ...

CHLAOIt is one of those complex stories that are so difficult to tell, and yet they should, they have to be shared. Imagine the splendid Mekong River, as it flows not far from an ancient capital of Laos, Luang Prabang. The river is powerful, with muddy banks, surrounded by lush mountains…

Greenspan Waves His Fist After Wall Street Sh...

GREEN45322As Americans brace for an economic downturn, adherents of free market ideology are busily assuring everyone that their ideas must be not be questioned. Just two days after the Stock Market dropped on October 10th, the front page of the Wall Street Journal’s Weekend Review featured…

Democracy “Snuffed Out”

USDEM5645522

We’re going to pull one moment out of recent American history, one erased, forgotten, “snuffed out” along with the hopes and dreams of a generation. In 1988, a nation exhausted by 8 years of Ronald Reagan, thus far the most corrupt regime in American history, wanted change, wanted reform.

The Democratic Party’s Problem with Power

5b3e6b1ddda4c810688b45f3With the approval of a conservative, anti-feminist judge to the Supreme Court, the divide between Democrats and Republicans widened, as it does periodically. But this time around, it goes far toward explaining why socialism has never been able to gain a foothold in the United States, notwithstanding that the Democratic party has more members than the Republican Party and wear…
