BBC taken to court over 9/11 coverage

The sane wing of the 9/11 truth movement is about to get its day in court. Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, a group of 1,600 engineers, metallurgists and architects, has been working  to demand a re-investigation of the 9/11 building collapses, arguing that the science and design practices they embrace indicate that the buildings did […]

A court challenge to the BBC over 9/11 coverage

Last year I told you all to watch a video about 9/11 that was not Loose Change or some other odd piece of Youtubery that your cousin found late one night before the Xanax kicked in (I especially like the two minute long file  of two seconds of video purportedly showing that both jets hitting […]

Obama’s drone policy expands definitions of ‘enemies’

This is an article I posted two weeks ago. It has some interesting links both to information about the Obama drone policy and the protesters who’ve been trying to call attention to the downsides of the use of drones against American citizens (and everyone else, too).

The Pope’s resignation and Conspiracy theories about it

Don’t know much about that Gun thing…

Don’t know much about that Gun thing…

On Thursday (2/7), WBCR‘s Sex and Politics played host to two advocates of full gun rights (aka the status quo) in the aftermath of the attacks at Sandy Hook, Connecticut, Aurora, Colorado, and any number of similar storied recent slaughters of Americans by firearms. I’m not going to re-hash the arguments and counter-arguments made that […]

Who is telling you the truth about the drone war?

Per a chirpy article in today’s Huffington Post, we learn that the major media have no reporters dedicated to covering the nitty-gritty of our drone wars. The Obama information considers their strikes secrets (though obviously the people getting hit by the Hellfire missiles know, so the ‘secret’ is being held from the American People picking […]
