Revelations Within the Boston Marathon
Boston Marathon commemoration celebrants: Narcissism writ large.

Boston Marathon commemoration celebrants: Runaway narcissism writ large.

by Rev. WILLIAM E. ALBERTS

Mainstream media are intensively focused on last year’s Boston Marathon victims in their run-up stories to this year’s April 21st Marathon.  It is enough to divert people’s attention from what our government does to countless more human beings in our name—which would explain why so-called “terrorists” would want to hurt us Americans.  This statement is not meant, in any way, to minimize what happened in Boston in 2013.  The lives of the four persons killed and over 260 injured last year are most precious, and words will never adequately express the terrible loss of loved ones and devastating injuries suffered.  Nor is the intent to minimize the culpability of the alleged Marathon bombers.  But something else is going on here—and it is not in the best interest of last year’s bombing victims, nor the rest of us citizens.

The Gemasolar plant in Seville

by ROBERT HUNZIKER

Human-caused climate change may already be out of control, as suggested in recent reports by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), confirming that a “tipping point” may already have arrived (1) with warming of the Arctic and (2) with excessive levels of CO2 causing acidification in the ocean, thereby threatening the existence of both human and marine life.

Fact-Based Empathy

A man looks at the site of bomb attack at a marketplace in Baghdad's Doura District

by RALPH NADER

Greater Boston and its citizens are the focus of media attention in recognition of the first anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings that took three innocent lives and injured over 264 people, some of them severely. City leaders praised the heroism of the first responders and the deepened community spirit (“Boston Strong”). Addressing 2,500 invited Bostonians, including the bereaved families, Vice President Biden said “You have become the face of America’s resolve, not unlike what happened in 9/11…for the whole world to see. People know all about you. They know your pride, they know your courage, they know your resolve, they know who you are.” Continue reading »

(A review of Paul Craig Roberts’ How America Was Lost: from 9/11 to the Police/Warfare State)

How America Was Lost- from 9:11 to the Police:Warfare State

By Gary Corseri

Americans need to understand that they have lost their country. The rest of the world needs to recognize that Washington is not merely the most complete police state since Stalinism, but also a threat to the entire world. The hubris and arrogance of Washington, combined with Washington’s huge supply of weapons of mass destruction, make Washington the greatest threat that has ever existed to all life on the planet. Washington is the enemy of all humanity.”—Paul Craig Roberts Continue reading »

OpEds—
By Donn Marten

Tense standoff continues in Donetsk, with supporters of the new "Republic of Donetsk" holding firm until a referendum is approved.

Tense standoff continues in Donetsk, with supporters of the new “Republic of Donetsk” holding firm until a referendum is approved.

The nadir of the anti-Russian propaganda campaign has finally been reached. In a lurid, rapidly spreading tale that has been seized upon by a corrupt state-corporate media in full feeding frenzy a leaflet requiring the registration of Jews was discovered in Donetsk. One may recall that back in 2006 a similar tale about Jews being forced to wear badges by Iran’s regime was debunked and retracted – as this one will be. Continue reading »
