If Democracy Now is not a source of news and information to you maybe it should be plus no commercials. Independent Media at it's best. Here investigative Journalist Greg Palast files this report from the rain forests of Ecuador, where an indigenous tribe is suing Chevron for $12 billion for contaminating the Amazon. They also play part of Palast's interview with Ecuador's President Rafael Correa. Greg Palast you know the guy who broke the story that it was Delay's goons that were sent to Florida in 2000 that were seen constantly on TV raising hell demanding a recount. He reports for the BBC but is American. You will not see him on the liberal media in this country.

This will never stop. Demand we leave Iraq now! The Washington Post is reporting the death of a U.S. soldier from a suicide bomber attack in Kanaan, Diyala Province on Thursday, December 20th. 13 neighborhood patrol volunteers were also killed and 19 U.S. soldiers were wounded in the attack.


Why we can never win in Iraq. It was obvious to the whole world what the results of an invasion would be but the neo-thugs went ahead anyway. That's why they must be impeached and tried for war crimes.

Sure gets ugly when right-wing religious crazies start attacking themselves.

This is an interesting look at why Rep. Kucinich was excluded from the debate in Iowa. The reason given is the correct one.

Women around the world continue to be less than second class citizens and are murdered for no less than being just that. In this country the battle for equality continues. What has and is happening in Basra,Iraq is appalling to say the least. Before the invasion and now occupation these women had for the most part complete freedom to live life. Not so any longer as many have been murdered and are being killed on a regular basis. If you care and wish to be informed watch this clip of these ongoing atrocities. This is an example of what happens when you invade another country on lies.

Once again Billo gets slapped so hard
here it's amazing this loon gets airtime but then again Amerikans at least some anyway love to be lied to and to have their stereotypes reinforced by the likes of those like Bill O.

HUD Poised to Tear Down New Orleans Public Housing Developments

From Oil Wars to Water Wars by Amy Goodman

I find this interesting because not only of the cause but also John Nirenberg's use of the Internet. He is walking to Nancy Pelosi's office to discuss impeachment and accountability. The posts I read were fun to read and will
follow this mans journey. Plans to arrive Jan.11
Plus he gets BUZZFLASH'S Wings of Justice Award.

Turley tortures the liars. They will continue to do whatever they want lie about it and carry on. They do it because they can. Those who are supposedly on my side enable it.


A Huckabee quote straight from the heart.
A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ.And then there's this.

If you have never read or watched Democracy Now this segment What is Blackwater’s Role in the 2008 Presidential Race? is a good place to start. Incredible stuff about this firm and the players within and their associations within our government and this administration.

This post by Jul about establishing a
Department of Peace is very informative. This effort is much more than a new department within our government but will address violence at all levels of our society. I will take peace over violence at whatever level any day!

Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson's statement on convicted obstructionist and low-life neo-thug Scooter Libby's announcement that he is dropping his appeal.

Once again Al says what the truth of the matter is when accepting the Nobel Peace Prize. Watch this country's media vilify and and belittle this achievement once again particularly Fox Whore News.

There is no other journalist that interviews people better on important subjects of the day than Bill Moyers. Here
he talks with Kathleen Hall Jamieson about how the Internet has transformed the political campaign in the United States. In the second segment Moyers and Jamieson are joined by scholar Melissa Rogers for a discussion of religion in politics. How is it that this man from Texas and a devout Christian be so diametrically different from others in particular on the issue of religion? Time flies with this because you hear a discussion without interruption or yelling back and forth. Mr. Moyers is one of the best of all time and he has my complete respect for all his efforts over the many years he has been in broadcasting.

They want your soul. Both are guilty as hell with the left damn near as bad.

“The End of America”: Feminist Social Critic Naomi Wolf Warns U.S. in Slow Descent into Fascism

In her new book, “The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot”, Naomi Wolf says the United States is on the road to becoming a fascist society, right under our very noses. Wolf outlines what she sees as the ten steps to shut down a democratic society and argues that the Bush administration has already implemented many of these steps. Wolf is the author of several books including the 1990s feminist classic, “The Beauty Myth.” [includes rush transcript]

Erin Light stands on the banks of the Yampa River knowing that this is one of the last places in the parched American West where you can take as much water as you like. But not for long. Even as the river flows rich and languid down from the Flat Tops Wilderness, the era of unimaginable plenty in this region is coming to an end. Light is the top water regulator on the Yampa, the first woman in Colorado history to oversee one of the state's vaunted rivers. It is a huge task. The Yampa is one of eight major river basins in Colorado that form a massive high-altitude headwaters, helping supply 19 other states, Mexico, and millions of people.

* Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act Raises Fears of New Government

A little-noticed anti-terrorism bill quietly making its through Congress is
raising fears of a new affront on activism and constitutional rights. The
Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act was passed in
an overwhelming 400 to six House vote last month. Critics say it could
herald a new government crackdown on dissident activity under the guise of
fighting terrorism.
