  • Hillary Clinton was a Wal-Mart Director for 6 Years

    In 1986, Sam Walton, the founder of Wal-Mart, was under pressure to appoint a woman to the company’s 15-member -all male- board of directors. So, Mr. Walton asked a young lawyer, Hillary Rodham Clinton, who just happened to be married to the governor of Arkansas at the time, where Wal-Mart is based, to be the sole female member of the board. During six years (1986 -1992) as a member of the Wal-Mart board of directors, Hillary Clinton remained silent as the world’s largest retailer waged a major campaign against the labor unions seeking to represent store workers. John Tate who was…

    How Did Global Jihad Reach China?

    British publishing, The Independent, reported today that China, once again, banned Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting, for the Turkic Muslim population of the Xinjiang Province of the country. The report claims that the Muslims throughout the district – which is known to have a majority population of Uyghurs/Turkic people – have been told not to fast during the Holy Month. The problem with this statement is that it was mostly false. You can not force millions of people to stop fasting and start eating. Any Muslim who wishes to fast is perfectly able to do so. Only thing the Chinese…

    Bilderberg 2015: Key Topics and Participants

    63rd Bilderberg conference will take place from 11 – 14 June 2015 in Telfs-Buchen, Austria. Annual policy conference states its mission as: “Founded in 1954, Bilderberg is an annual conference designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America. There is no detailed agenda, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued.” The Bilderberg’s initial purpose was to bring the leaders of Western Europe and the United States closer as the Soviet Union cemented its control of the Eastern bloc. 1st meeting took place at the Bilderberg Hotel, near Arnhem, at the instigation of Joseph…

    Greece, Turkey, Russia Gas Pipeline Financing Agreed

    According to EurActiv News, financing of the extension of a pipeline carrying Russian gas from Turkey to Greece has been secured and a deal could be signed this month, the Greek energy minister said Monday. In an interview with Russian public television, Panagiotis Lafazanis indicated he had had a series of very productive meetings in Russia, which is ready to participate in the financing. He said there is “enormous interest” among Greek companies for an extension of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline. Moscow axed its South Stream gas pipeline to southeastern Europe last year, even though construction had already begun, as…

    Fusion Centers: Your Data is Given to Corporations by the US Government

    “Fusion Centers”, created between 2003 and 2007– a hybrid of military, intelligence agency, police and private corporations set up in centers throughout the country, and run by the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security – allow big businesses like Boeing to get access to classified information which gives them an unfair advantage over smaller competitors.  ~ACLU  :What’s Wrong With Fusion Centers?

FEMEN Activists Freed from Tunisian Jail

Jun 27, 2013

Three feminists with the radical protest group FEMEN were freed from a Tunisian jail Wednesday, after receiving suspended sentences from an appeal court for baring their breasts in public. One of their lawyers Bahri Souhaib said, their sentences had been suspended, and that they would leave Tunisia as soon as possible. They were sentenced to four months and one day in prison for offending public morals and threatening public order. The three were arrested outside the main courthouse in Tunis on May 29 during their topless protest against a planned gathering of radical Salafists, and in support of Amina Sboui,…

Fast Food Workers in New York Stage Surprise Strike

Apr 6, 2013

On Thursday April 4th, for the second time in less than a year, workers at fast food restaurants in New York City staged a surprise strike. Over 400 workers at restaurants like McDonalds, Taco Bell, Wendy’s, and Burger King walked off the job. The workers, who mostly earn the federally mandated minimum wage of $7.25, demanded a living wage of $15 an hour, as well as the right to union representation. The strike was timed to coincide with the 45th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, who was killed while in Memphis, Tenn. to support striking sanitation…

Occupy Convergence: The New Face of Activism?

Apr 5, 2013

“Occupy has had to do a lot of soul searching…” That was the response by Occupy New Hampshire organizer Ryan Glen Hirsch, when asked about where the Occupy Wall Street movement is and how it has evolved since its hay-day in 2011. I met with Ryan in Manchester on Tuesday, to discuss the upcoming “Occupy New England (ONE) Regional Convergence (no acronym necessary)” event, scheduled to take place at the end of the month. As I readied my materials to take notes on the conversation, a packet of small black and white leaflets is slid across the table towards me….

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…
