  • Bombshell Claim by Hersh: Erdogan and Turkish Government Carried Out the Chemical Attack in Syria (Video)

Below are a few of the paragraphs extracted from the report. To learn more about Erdogan’s ascent to Turkish Prime Ministry, with the full support of the USA, and to read the entire article click…

    Night Witches Who Terrified Nazis

    The Nazis called them the ‘Nachthexen’, the ‘Night Witches’. They were the volunteer Soviet women pilots of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment, an exclusive female regiment of the Soviet Air Force in World War II. We simply couldn’t grasp that the Soviet airmen that caused us the greatest trouble were in fact women. These women feared nothing. They came night after night in their very slow biplanes, and for some periods they wouldn’t give us any sleep at all. – Hauptmann Johannes Steinhoff, German Commander of II./JG 52, Oak Leaves to the Knight’s Cross, September 1942. After Hitler’s invasion of…

    BREAKING: New Coal Disaster In West Virginia

    Dear Good People of West Virginia: “Freedom” and “Patriot” do not mean what you think they do. We have breaking news today of a new Big Coal disaster in the offing in The Mountain State. Just days after the Dan River coal ash spill affecting North Carolina and Virginia, and mere weeks after West Virginia’s own Freedom Industries Elk River chemical debacle (which cost the citizens of that state over $19 million each day the “do not use” water order was in effect) – here we have another coal behemoth, Patriot Coal, scurrying to “inform” the public about a new…

    BREAKING Update On Dan River Coal Ash Disaster: State Admits to Arsenic Levels

    A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE to our report yesterday on the Dan River Coal Ash Disaster affecting North Carolina and Virginia: As reported by John Downey of The Charlotte Business Journal late last night, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Division of Water Resources has admitted that the arsenic levels their agency originally published on Thursday as falling “within state standards” did, in fact, exceed the standards for human health consumption. We have been in touch with Tom Reeder, Director of DENR’s Division of Water Resources, whose office just issued a press release. Within the release, Mr….

Spain’s Lost Generation on Hunger Strike (Video)

Oct 31, 2013

Under his hoodie, 25 year-old engineer Jorge Arzuaga looks like any young man who is ready to go to a soccer match in Madrid, Spain. Against the backdrop of Puerta del Sol Square, bustling with tourist activity in this cool October evening, Jorge’s mission is not one of temporary entertainment but permanent change. Jorge declared a hunger strike on October 12, 2013 to go about that change, demanding the resignation of a government which he calls corrupt and illegitimate. Jorge recently finished college with an engineering degree, and promptly joined the ranks of millions of new graduates who are not…

Turkish Police Beat and Arrested Attorneys in Courthouse (Video)

Caglayan Courthouse in Istanbul, Turkey, was a scene of scuffle and disgrace earlier today, when a group of police officers beat up and detained more than 50 attorneys who were in the courthouse to represent their clients. The majority of the attorneys were the legal representatives of some of the protestors who were illegally detained or injured by the Turkish police during the ongoing protests in Istanbul and throughout the country. In a move that casts doubt on the Turkish government’s commitment to the rule of law, an additional 30 attorneys were dragged out of the courthouse by force when…

Is Monsanto Really Wicked or Misunderstood?

Over two million protesters rallied in 300 cities in 44 countries around the world on Saturday, as part of a global protest against the seed giant Monsanto and the genetically modified food it produces. The debate over genetically engineered food has been going on since the FDA concluded that there was no difference between genetically engineered and non-engineered plants in 1992. Genetic engineering advocates claim that the GMOs could reduce World hunger and increase nutritional quality in foods. Unfortunately, most of these claims have been debunked repeatedly, as Anna Lappe explains in her 2011 article on Civil Eats. The March…

Government Favored Oil Companies Over Shelter For Children

The devastation in Moore, Oklahoma is unimaginable. A deadly F-5 tornado hit this town on May 20th, 2013 and the death toll continues to rise as time passes by. Plaza Towers Elementary school was directly in the path of this horrific storm. Even though Moore, OK, resides in the middle of tornado alley, Oklahoma politicians denied the children of this school, a tornado shelter. These children were denied the freedom to be properly sheltered from Mother Nature’s wrath. Instead, these kids were forced to depend only on the walls of the school to protect them from an F5 tornado. The…

Of Massachusetts And Men: The Burial of Tamerlan Tsarnaev

I realize that, by writing this, I am bringing unnecessary tsuris into my life. So be it. Since when did we become a gaggle of punk haters (read: not punk-haters)? If I understand this correctly, many of you would like to have the body of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev “fed to the sharks” or “mutilated….desecrated” or “incinerated” or “shipped to Russia”. Are we in agreement so far? OK. I’d like to know what I’m missing here because I don’t think this is how we, as Americans, behave. This is not how we treat the dead; yes, even that dead…
