Indigenous Perspectives and Realities

Although I am a fan of Bernie Sanders, I was disappointed (though not surprised) that he could not answer the caller today who asked him to comment on Obama's having recently (Dec 16) signed the UN Declaration on Indigenous Rights, having been the last country on Earth to sign the 2007 document.

The four countries that did not sign the declaration (Australia, New Zealand, U.S.

Health Care Rights?

The rights that Americans wisely cherish as being essential for a free society require only the refraining from action. Your right to speak freely requires me simply not to stop you from speaking; it does not require me to supply your megaphone.

The times are changin': Philip Giraldi

Is it becoming a battle of the obvious over the la-la land of the professional entertainers, with their empty rhetoric? They really have a major hold on the information and attitudes the people are given to work with.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
