November 12, 2013

“The trade in derivatives, using home notes, was designed as a Ponzi scheme. Excel knew it. Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft (CWT), knew it.

A Full Measure – War, Mortgages And Measuring The Human Spirit

October 13, 2013

When millions of people are suffering and dying we tend to focus on the stories of individuals who then come to represent them all. Anne Frank represents for a vast majority the ugliness visited on Jews during WWII. The stories are haunting. All stories of vast human suffering impact us. Only those without conscience or empathy can view the suffering of others and not be moved. Anne Frank died before I was born, but sometimes, unexpectedly, you find yourself confronted with a story of human endurance which is overwhelming. Another... MORE

Presidential Puppetry And Revolt In Ashtabula County

July 7, 2013

None of the twenty-five activists for the Ashtabula County Charter Initiative, designed to move power back into the hands of Americans on how their county is governed, had read, or even heard of the newly released book, “Presidential Puppetry,” by Andrew Kreig.

It’s Time To Change The Exxon Strategy

June 26, 2013

Exxon has a play book assembled long in advance of any spill. At each step they lie, evade the issues, stall, and work on victims to entice and threaten them to settle when the victims are still numb with shock and have no idea what they are facing in terms of their health. The Kalamazoo Spill of 2010, from Enbridge Energy Partners spilled into Talmadge Creek near Marshall, Michigan continuing downstream into the Kalamazoo River. The health impact on residents continues to this day. The financial cost is now estimated... MORE

June 14, 2013

Locals thought the law suit filed by Jerome Daly against the local bank, to be heard on December 7, 1968, in the township of Credit River, Minnesota would be frivolous.

Daly, in arrears on his mortgage, had sued the bank as he faced foreclosure because while reviewing the papers and practices he had noticed the mortgage was issued with no legal ‘consideration’ between himself... MORE

Drones, And The Military-Industrial Complex

May 27, 2013

Drones are a weapon of war, presently being used by the U.S. Military using assertions not supported by facts.

The Last Step For War – Keeping Saddam Hussein In Iraq

May 7, 2013

Why did Saddam Hussein stay in Iraq? There was every motive to leave. He had seen what happened to leaders who attempt to withstand the corporate interests who are looking for an opportunity to loot a country.

He had gotten his start as a hire for the CIA and knew what was poised to happen to him, his family, and his nation. Cast you mind back... MORE

The Shot Heard ‘Round The World – April 19, 1775

April 20, 2013

As the harsh storms of winter subside we approach the 238thanniversary of an event in American history which provides insight and direction badly needed today. On April 19, 1775 a musket was discharged, beginning a clash of arms over a small bridge standing astride the stream at Concord, Massachusetts. We have all seen the statues and, perhaps, remember the poems. To this day no one knows who fired the shot.

The Koch refinery is configured to take heavy crude, available only from Venezuela and Canada. And along with the distasteful issue of going hat in hand to Hugo Chavez, and paying $100 (£64) a barrel, the oil the Kochs need is available... MORE

Remember The Real Earth Day

February 8, 2013

On the Spring Equinox, at the exact moment when the northern and southern hemispheres of the Earth are balanced, bells are rung across the globe. Many over look it, but thousands remember. The original Earth Day has been celebrated in this way since 1970, when first established by the Earth Society. The mission was, “Peace, Justice, and Care of the Earth.” Many ideas blossom momentarily and then die because they are not nurtured. The woman who has kept the mission of Earth Day alive over the last decades overcame astonishing... MORE
