Saudi-US Propaganda by PBS NewsHour in Houthi-held Yemen

Saudi-US Propaganda by PBS NewsHour in Houthi-held Yemen

This is what American tax-supported propaganda looks like when an organization like the PBS NewsHour wants to maintain a semblance of credibility while lying through its intimidated teeth. Yes, Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the world, long dependent on imported food and other life support. But to say “Yemen’s war” is major league deceit, and PBS surely knows the truth: that the war on Yemen is American-backed, initiated – illegally – in March 2015 by a Saudi-led coalition that includes the UAE (United Arab Emirates). The US/Saudi war is genocidal, creating famine and a cholera epidemic for military purposes. These are American and Arab war crimes that almost no one wants to acknowledge, much less confront…

TRUMP’S MILITARY DROPS A BOMB EVERY 12 MINUTES, AND NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT

TRUMP’S MILITARY DROPS A BOMB EVERY 12 MINUTES, AND NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT

We live in a state of perpetual war, and we never feel it. While you get your gelato at the hip place where they put those cute little mint leaves on the side, someone is being bombed in your name. While you argue with the 17-year-old at the movie theater who gave you a small popcorn when you paid for a large, someone is being obliterated in your name. While we sleep and eat and make love and shield our eyes on a sunny day, someone’s home, family, life and body are being blown into a thousand pieces in our names…

Disarming the Patriarchy

Disarming the Patriarchy

Countless women and other survivors of sexual violence watched in fury as the misogynist, patriarchal rage of a powerful straight white man whose entitlement was questioned live on television the final week of September. The nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court and subsequent allegations of sexual assault from several women unleashed a renewed dialogue about assault, survivors, and privilege not just in the United States but also around the world. This fight, which has been elevated throughout the #MeToo era…

ROLE MODEL
ROLE MODEL

We all need a role model, hero, or mentor. I have had several very important ones in my life. One of them died recently, a woman named Mary Harris. Mary passed-on just 49 days short of her 101st birthday. I served with Mary on the board of the Democratic World Federalists. She attended meetings regularly up until the last few weeks of her long life. Living at her beach home in Pacifica, she climbed up 160 stairs every time she went anywhere and relied on public transportation and friends for rides…

The Coming Thunder of the Climate Change Voter
The Coming Thunder of the Climate Change Voter

I believe human-caused climate change is real and presents a direct and deepening threat to life on Earth as we know it. I believe the air, the food and the water are all in grave peril. I can’t believe saying that remains controversial, because the evidence of it is literally on fire in front of us. The images are broadcast into our homes each night by the nightly news shows, whose anchors are at long last uttering the words, now that it might be too late…

Solidarity with the Popular Movements of Columbia
Solidarity with the Popular Movements of Columbia

The Coalition Against U.S. Foreign Military Bases declares our solidarity with the popular movements of Colombia who are currently the targets of a systematic operation of extermination and intimidation. On August 7, 2018, the right-wing candidate Iván Duque will take possession of the office of the presidency of Colombia, backed by every business and political interest, and every paramilitary organization that wants to undermine the country’s peace…

Trump Blows Up the UN, Metaphorically Speaking
Trump Blows Up the UN, Metaphorically Speaking

United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres took pre-emptive strikes against President Donald Trump in his speech at the opening session of the 72nd General Assembly, on Sept. 19, 2017. Rumors were rampant that Trump would deliver a strongly nationalistic speech, reportedly written by Stephen Miller, author of Trump’s more bombastic and nationalist screeds, including the inauguration speech on Jan. 20…

Human Beings Face Extinction: We need to act now
Human Beings Face Extinction: We need to act now

The global climate is unraveling at rates far beyond the predictions of scientists. The studies are so common by this date, and the scientific evidence so pervasive going back at least half a century, that there is no need to cite sources about this fact. The oceans are dying, the fisheries are becoming exhausted. The forests are dying. They are devastated through human overuse, logging, wildfires, acid rain, and rapidly changing climate conditions…

Where are the Medical Supplies?
Where are the Medical Supplies?

The Freedom Flotilla Coalition demands the immediate release of the 116 boxes of medical supplies for the health services of Gaza that were carried on the Al Awda and Freedom boats of the 2018 Freedom Flotilla to Gaza, recently seized by Israeli forces. As Swedish Foreign Affairs Minister Margot Wallström has stated, the ship’s cargo must be released, according to international law…

Is Washington Planning a Pre-Emptive Strike on Iran?

Is Washington planning a pre-emptive strike on Iran? Will Bolton, the neocon’s, and Israel get their way and invade Iran? Whether or not an attack against Iran occurs, the mere fact that it is a distinct possibility is a good reason to demand a review of the United Nations Charter. The UN, hampered by its defective Charter, cannot stop such an illegal action. Readers are invited to explore any of the 5 different articles presented from Global Research News by going to their Url shown below…

Global Peace Summit: Trump | Putin

Global Peace Summit: Trump | Putin

Regarding the July 16th US-Russian Summit meeting, I have written President Trump to urge him to discuss with President Putin the idea of making this important meeting the first step to an even larger, expanded Summit: A GLOBAL PEACE SUMMIT. Talking to each other is far better than war. I urged Trump to co-host with Mr. Putin such a future SUMMIT. If designed properly, it could capture the imagination of a public which yearns for world peace and peace of mind from the danger of nuclear disaster…
