About the Author
 Chris Hedges, spent nearly two decades as a foreign correspondent in Central America, the Middle East, Africa and the Balkans. He has reported from more than 50 countries and has worked for The Christian Science Monitor, National Public Radio, The Dallas Morning News and The New York Times, for which he was a foreign correspondent for 15 years. 

This is an ideology of death. It promises that the secular, humanist society will be physically destroyed. The Ten Commandments will form the basis of our legal system. Creationism or “Intelligent Design ” will be taught in public schools. People who are considered social deviants, including homosexuals, immigrants, secular humanists, feminists, Jews, Muslims, criminals and those dismissed as “nominal Christians”—meaning Christians who do not embrace the Christian right’s perverted and heretical interpretation of the Bible—will be silenced, imprisoned or killed.


^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.^3000

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.^3000

The most important act anyone can do is stop using all mainstream media.^3000

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda. ^3000

Toxic sludge for the mind.^3000

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.^3000

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires.^3000

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.^3000

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.^3000

But are its murderers and undertakers. ^3000

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork. ^3000

And the murder of the planet^3000

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity.^3000

That's 8 guys are richer than 4 billion people.^3000

The corporate media is their main line of defense.^3000

That's why the best way to break their hold on us...^3000

Is to break their media.^3000

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.^3000

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.^3000

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.^3000

Defeat their power to mislead.^3000

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion.^3000

And they never stop.^3000

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie. ^3000

So trust no one on the Big Media.^3000

And beware of "entertainment shows". ^3000

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.^3000

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying DHS. ^3000

The police state.^3000

Or CBS Madam Secretary. ^3000

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing. ^3000

Telling us the US government is good.^3000

That the president is good...that its cabinet is good.^3000

That the US establishment—which they represent...^3000

has noble aims. Rubbish!^3000

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.^3000

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices. ^3000

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media.^3000

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.^3000

Become a soldier in the battle of communications. ^3000

Which we must win.^3000

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war...^3000

now it's a matter of survival!^3000

Sweet Irony…
Amazon will donate a commission for every purchase you make using this app

We all know that Amazon is an uber-capitalist octopus swallowing ever more industries and openly collaborating with the CIA. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, probably the #2 richest man on earth, is no friend of radicals, or socialist revolution, that’s for sure. But this app, ironically, promises to donate some money to whoever uses it to search and make a purchase on Amazon. Since many people will go on using Amazon due to habit or convenience, make it kick back a few dollars our way to continue our pro-peace and anti-imperialist work. Our financial situation leaves us no choice at this point. So consider it. A boycott of Amazon by lefties at this point is hardly going to register on their radar. But any funding we get, at our puny level, will keep us going. Simple as that.

Parting shot—a word from the editors
The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found

In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump — a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism. By pushing Trump into a corner and demanding that he display his most bellicose self, or be ceaselessly mocked as a “puppet” and minion of Russia, a lesser power, the War Party and its media and clandestine services have created a perfect storm of mayhem that may consume us all.

  1. Grateful you ran this alert. This is a topic that many “regular” Americans ignore at their own peril. The US fundies zealotry is not that different from ISIS and similar maniacs.

    I read Hedges book, and also bought the Jonas eBook, both of which I commend.
    Your own editor, Branford Perry put it well:

    “… Imprisoned by ignorance, rabid superstition, thinly veiled racism, and primordial chauvinism, Christian fundamentalists constitute the natural shock troops of the Right in America, an almost inexhaustible horde easy to be misled in whatever direction, no matter how infamous, their leaders decide. Now, having discovered politics, they have successfully (and by opportunistic mutual accord) infiltrated the GOP pushing a party already well to the right further along the path to de facto authoritarianism. In view of such developments, we must ask again: Can it happen here? Can it happen in the 21st Century United States? The current confluence of world historical forces and the rapid deterioration of American society indicate that this is now more than just a remote probability…”

  2. Ever wonder why Europe was glad to be rid of the zealots that had to flee to far- off North America in the seventeenth century and after ? : – ) : – )

  3. The Republican-Christian Alliance has been developing in intensity since it was started in earnest by Reagan in the 1980 Presidential campaign. This Reagan made that very clear when he made very clear to George H.W. Bush that one of the conditions which he had to meet in order to run as the VP on Reagan’s ticket was for both him and Barbara to resign as board members of Planned Parenthood in Texas, positions which they had held for many years.

    Mr. Hedges has written a very important article on the modern state of politico-Christian Fascism and its role in the Trump Administration. He also points out the growing influence of Dominionism in that movement. It is important additionally to point out that Mike Pence, the next President of the United States, is a Dominionist. The Christian Right has come to play an ever-growing role in Trump’s seemingly immovable base:

    My book follows the role and function of the Christian Right in the Republican Party since it was brought into the tent by Reagan. I call it the Rightward Imperative of that Party’s message and motive.

    Steven Jonas, MD

    NOTE: The author is a senior editor with TGP, and author of the Duopoly Column series.

    His book, The 15% Solution, How the Republican Religious Right Took Control of the US, can be purchased at Amazon and other major online bookstores.
