Why Are Obama/NATO Stoking a Thermo-Nuclear War With Russia?

So what on earth would be the payoff of a thermo-nuclear war with Russia? It would end all life on the planet.

The Politicization of Genocide

William Hanna in “Hypocrisy, Double Standards, and the Politicisation of Genocide” explains that in 1998 120 states of the international community adopted the Rome Statute which established a legal basis for establishing an International Criminal Court (ICC).

The U.S. and Israel signed the ICC accord in 2000. They have since withdrawn and opposed the ICC because the political leaders of both do not wish to be judged according to a “global standard of justice.” Read below the fold...

Ferguson, Front Line of Anti-Constitution & Class Warfare

Ferguson, Missouri has been turned into a war zone.

The police use inappropriate force, such as tear gas and rubber bullets, to overwhelm and intimidate residents who are legitimately protesting a police murder of a fellow, unarmed resident.

It is not a real law but nevertheless was and still is constantly spouted by the police. This “rule” is anti the First Amendment and now being challenged by the ACLU. Read below the fold...

Re-POST: Over-Fortifying Mayberry!!!

According to Zac Corrigan in “Militarization of police in America” the Pentagon under the Obama administration is equipping -- OVER-EQUIPPING -- US police departments across the country with former overseas military weaponry and vehicles.

The ominous dots aren’t hard to connect for any of us paying the least bit of attention to the dramatic and merciless economic polarization in America along with the escalation of inappropriate and inhumane lethal force by the police. Read below the fold...
