BARACK OBAMA’S speech was weak, utterly lacking in compelling (or even admissible) evidence and unconvincing, especially to the world.

He’s looking for a way out and Russia appears to be in the driver’s seat with respect to diplomacy. Barack the Bloody has openly vowed compliance with international law. He has committed himself to exploring and pursuing the diplomatic solution… which means he has backed down. He has lost inertia and initiative.

There will be no 9-11 false flag attacks. The situation is too tense, too tinder dry. My guess is that the Obama administration is hoping for this to die down in intensity so it can be swept under the rug and proclaimed a victory.

But what I foresee is a crushing and humiliating defeat for the U.S. at the UN when the inspection reports come in and as more and more evidence piles up that the Assad regime did not use the gas, that this was a false-flag perpetrated by U.S. and allies. The UN can, and probably will demand presentation of the thus-far missing evidence. John Kerry is about to have his head handed to him if that happens.

You can’t yank the world around like this.

You can’t yank people around like this.

We are not going though weeks and months of this.

And just maybe, seven billion of us are beginning to realize that we can put an end to this.

Si se puede!

Chris Hedges – Live in Los Angeles / Part One

A film by Michael Sosebee

On June 28, 2012 Chris Hedges gave an historic talk to a sold-out audience at the Immanuel Presbyterian Church, in Los Angeles, California.  In part one, Chris begins by discussing his father’s impact on his career and integrity, then on to speak about the populist movements and writing of early journalists, propaganda and how it has historically seduced the public into war in the US.  He explains how this led to the decline of the liberal class and the birth of consumerism.

“Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam”

Some thoughts on Dr. King’s birthday, the Tuscon shooting and the notion that this administration using MLK’s name to support the Pentagon’s war effort. It is not only ludicrous – but shameful.

There are many in this country who are still disturbed by the violence in Tucson last week and hear the words echoed by our president who said, “…we need to do everything we can to make sure this country lives up to our children’s expectations.”

I’m sure many of America’s children expect to know why their parents can’t find work.

Many should expect to understand why their families homes are in foreclosure even when their parents pay on time. Many college-aged children expect an explanation as to why banks get billion dollar bonuses for committing fraud when they can’t pay their skyrocketing tuition costs.

Today, we are now at war longer than the one in Viet Nam.

This weekend, for Dr. King’s birthday, I had to share this speech. You will likely not hear how he applauded dissent when our country most needed it. How outspoken he was about the war and the needs of the poorest Americans, both black and white. Dr. King may never have considered himself a hero simply for speaking the truth, but now we have arrived at a time in history where we understand…

Telling the truth is indeed, a revolutionary act.

Happy Birthday, Dr. King.  America would do better by its children if it lived up to your expectations.
