Paul's Iran Alarm: From Talk to Action

Thou hast talked too much – time to show-it!
by Zahir Ebrahim
A solemn greeting to any remaining conscionable peoples in America by way of response to their one remaining honest political spokesman!

“I have, for the past 35 years, expressed my grave concern for the future of America.”

Dear readers of Ron Paul's 'Something Big is Going On:' If these confessional words in this posting are really the respected Congressman Ron Paul's, then one would also have to rightfully ask WHAT has “expressed my grave concern” actually accomplished?

Saying What Others Mightn't

Journalistic Imperatives: Saying What Others Mightn't
by Ramzy Baroud
The world of journalism, like any other profession, can be muddled with a plethora of distractions, self-interests and agendas that certainly do not serve the cause of a free press. Outside as well as inside pressures and interests often compromise the very essence of the journalist's mission.

In general terms, a journalist should hold her or himself accountable to some basic guiding principals, the attainment of which are at times extremely difficult: to relay the story the way the journalist sees it, not the way she or he is expected to see it; to avoid sensationalism, and to adhere to as much objectivity as possible.

White Australians Can Booze-Up, But Not Aborigine

White Australians Can Booze-Up, But Not Aborigine
by Andre Vltchek
It is close to 6pm and the sunset viewing area in front of magnificent Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock) is full of families and independent travelers. Some are standing on the roof of their rented caravans, bottle of beer in one hand, camera in other. There are those who arrived equipped with small folding tables and chairs.

The rock - easily one of the most beautiful natural sights in the world, UNESCO world Heritage Site and most importantly one of the sacred places for Aborigines people - becomes bright red as it embraces last rays sent by descending and exhausted sun.

The Age of Reckoning

The Age of Reckoning: Economy, Climate Change & Imperial War
by Jack Random
While we celebrate Independence Day with parades, marching bands, miniature flags and spectacular fireworks, there is little to remind us of the perils we face both as a nation and as citizens of the world.  

We are a nation at war without cause or reason.  We have elected leaders who have made a mockery of our constitutional rights, who have plundered our economy in the interest of corporate greed, who have colluded in imperial wars, and who pay lip service to the greatest environmental crisis in recorded history.

America: Patriotism Schmatriotism

Some Thoughts on "Patriotism" Written on July 4
by William Blum
Most important thought: I'm sick and tired of this thing called "patriotism".

The Japanese pilots who bombed Pearl Harbor were being patriotic. The German people who supported Hitler and his conquests were being patriotic, fighting for the Fatherland. All the Latin American military dictators who overthrew democratically-elected governments and routinely tortured people were being patriotic -- saving their beloved country from "communism".

Legacy: John McCain Channels Jesse Helms

The Jesse Helms Legacy and John McCain
by John Nichols
Jesse Helms was a segregationist, and a nasty one at that.

Long after his contemporaries abandoned old "Jim Crow," Helms kept playing the race card when it served him politically.
And when he was not picking on African-Americans, he picked on ethnic minorities, immigrants, trade unionists, gays and lesbians.

Israel: United by a Bulldozer

United by a Bulldozer - And I think to myself…
by Gilad Atzmon
According to Haaretz, the Shin Bet security service, the (IDF) Military Advocate General, the Defence Minister Barak and the Prime Minister Olmert himself are all backing the demolition of terrorists’ homes.

Not much can be said; at last, Jews start to agree on something among themselves, not only do they agree, they even compete among themselves to be the most outspoken about it.
They all want to lead the current Hebraic belligerence championship. Each of them tries to shape and reshape an authentic image of vengeance.

Campbell River Fish Farm Escape Threatens Fraser Salmon Run

Campbell River Fish Farm Escape Threatens Fraser Salmon Run
by Salmon Coast Field Station
On Canada Day, a Marine Harvest fish farm net released 30,000 farmed Atlantic salmon into the Campbell River putting them right in the path of wild juvenile salmon swimming down the Campbell River.

The farmed fish are not indigenous to the coast and will place undue pressure on the native stock that is already reeling from sea lice and warmer sea temperatures.

McCain Presidency Touted by Vietnamese Former Keeper

McCain Presidency Touted by Vietnamese Former Keeper
by C. L. Cook
The BBC's Andrew Harding reports from Vietnam his conversation with a former "Hanoi Hilton" jail keeper who, Harding says, supports the presidential run of his former inmate, John McCain.
Tran Trong Duyet is quoted by BBC News, speaking from his home in Haiphong, about his "good friend" John McCain, while flipping through sentimental black and white photos taken of the two while McCain was a P.O.W.

The cordial relationship Tran describes runs counter to the familiar McCain campaign narrative of an embattled Navy pilot, shot down and taken prisoner over enemy territory, bravely resisting torture and refusing a deal his super-wealthy family arranged for his freedom to instead stay in Hanoi and serve as a Stoic, selfless inspiration to his fellows.
