9/11 fifteen years later: The terror attack that birthed an Evil Empire

“Like a supernatural condor, the shadow plane flew across my TV screen into the South Tower, reborn moments later as a fiery orange hell flower that blossomed from the skyscraper’s other side. September 11th 2001, an atypical morning.” The above excerpt is from an autobiographically based short story I wrote. Fifteen years after the attacks, we mark another 9/11 anniversary. It’s almost comical to watch mass murderers like George W. Bush and Barack Obama pay tribute to the good kind of murder victims -those killed by Islamic terrorism. What about the hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis, Afghans, Libyans,...

Journalism- not: Salon lays another rancid Dem Party PR vulture egg

Once palatable Salon has turned into a neoliberal PR agency for Hillary Clinton. Staff writer Heather Digby Parton best represents the publication’s devolution into propaganda organ. Peruse her article history for stories posted during the 2016 election cycle to validate her Corporate Democratic Party shill credentials. In her Salon article,  “Confused conservatives: How can they back a guy who cares so little about their philosophy?”-  Ms. Parton fires a BB pellet at the corporate Republican elephant by “exposing” the GOP’s hypocrisy in their endorsement of Donald Trump, a man who deviates from their much touted small government family values mantra- a...

Scientists discover new nearby planet- Earth still run by psychos

The Washington Post reports, “Scientists have discovered what they believe to be a new planet, the closest one ever detected outside our solar system. It is a small, rocky planet not unlike our own, orbiting the sun’s closest stellar neighbor.” Usually an article by the Washington Post is: a) propaganda, b) a lie, c)  a fact omission fest, d) a shit pile of regurgitated White House/CIA talking points. However since WaPo has no vested interest in new planetary discoveries (yet), I think we can classify this story as honest reporting. You probably can trust their sports section as well....

War Crimes and Corruption: Release of more Hillary Clinton emails

CNN aka Corporatist News Network reports, “ A federal judge set a preliminary schedule Monday for the release of nearly 15,000 documents between Hillary Clinton and top aides when she was the secretary of state. The State Department was directed to assess 14,900 documents it received from the FBI as part of the investigation into Clinton’s use of her private email server while she was secretary of state, determine a plan to release the documents and report back to the court September 23.” Yeah sure, like the corrupt State Department would try to incriminate their former and probable future boss...

Syrian War: US scrambles fighter Jets to protect ISIS

Go team USA- or really team oil and gas corporation, Military Industrial Complex, bank cartel, Saudi Royal, Zionist Lobby, and the team’s MVP, ISIS. The corporate news outlet BBC reports, “Syrian government’s [sic] warplanes bombed Kurdish areas of Hassakeh for the second day running on Friday.” (Better to write, “Syrian government warplanes” -but why would we expect grammatically sound writing from this “prestigious” Oxford and Cambridge crowd run news source?) The BBC online rag went on to say, ”On Thursday, the US “scrambled” – quickly launched – fighter jets to defend some special forces soldiers that were in the...
