Why President Obama’s ISIS Strategy Is Just Another Form of ‘Regime Change’ - This Time in Syria

Is the U.S. forever doomed to repeat the same failed strategies of “nation building” over and over again?

President Barack Hussein Obama Jr. 2014 speech

Watching the President’s speech tonight, I was interested in hearing if he was going to offer anything new when it comes to countering the influence of ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham) and what if anything the United States should do to combat this extremism. It became rather clear to me early on though that the country is being led into yet another attempt to bring “regime change” to…

While the autopsy results are being withheld from the family and public, both officers are on paid administrative leave.

LAPD Newton Division’s “Gang Enforcement Detail” Officers Sharlton K. Wampler and Antonio Villegas are the cops responsible for shooting Ezell Ford to death in South Los Angeles last month, according to a press release…

Unarmed black man, Ezell Ford, killed by LAPD August 13, 2014
On the heels of the Mike Brown tragedy, another Black man has been shot and killed by the police. The 24-year-old man succumbed to gun injuries after an encounter with police in South LA.
The incident happened Monday evening, shortly after a shooting was reported at the intersection of West 65th Street and South Broadway. The LAPD stopped a man 200 blocks north of the 65th block when things took a dangerous turn. According to a police statement, officers opened fire after “a struggle ensued.”
The man, who was later identified as Ezell Ford, was then transported to the nearest hospital where he underwent surgery but later died. Ford is one of countless victims who have recently died at the hands of police- who are to protect and serve the community.
Was Ford killed for simply being a young, African-American male – the very same characteristics that claimed the lives of John Crawford and Mike Brown?
The mother of the victim, Tritobia Ford,  said her son was lying on the ground and obeying the officers’ commands when he was shot. Multiple reports indicate he was unarmed.
Further details on the shooting is underway and will be investigated by LAPD’s Force Investigation Division. The LAPD is currently being sued by Marlene Pinnock, a homeless woman whose vicious beating at the hands of a still unidentified officer was caught on tape. Her lawsuit alleges excessive force, assault, battery.

The surrounding south LA community has organized a protest to demand justice for Ezell on Sunday, August 17 at the LAPD headquarters at 3 p.m.
Rest in power, Ezell. No justice, no peace!

Debunking Israel’s #1 Talking Point - That “Hamas Uses Palestinian Children as Human Shields”

Debunking Israel’s #1 Talking Point - That “Hamas Uses Palestinian Children as Human Shields”. (The truth will astound you.)

Israel Gaza West Bank Palestine

Of all of the false and insidious talking points trumpeted out by Israel and its allies in the U.S. corporate media over the past two months, the one that stands out as possibly the most deceitful is the one which claims Hamas uses Palestinian civilians, including children, as “human shields”. The fact that Israel should use this as an imagined justification for blowing up people in Gaza without…

Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture)

"Dr. King’s policy was that nonviolence would achieve the gains for black people in the United States. His major assumption was that if you are nonviolent, if you suffer, your opponent will see your suffering and will be moved to change his heart. That’s very good.

He only made one fallacious assumption: In order for nonviolence to work, your opponent must have a conscience. The United States has none.”

Gov. Jay Nixon Was Right About One Thing: The Whole World IS Watching!

Gov. Jay Nixon Was Right About One Thing: The Whole World IS Watching!

On his official Twitter account, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei posted this historic collage along with the words: "Today like previous years, African-Americans are still under pressure, oppressed and subjected to discrimination. #Ferguson"
Brave young man in #Ferguson tosses a tear gas canister back toward the police officers who shot it at him.

Missouri’s Democratic Governor Jay Nixon, who’s been sounding a lot more like Gov. George Wallace lately, probably thought he was being clever when he decided to invoke one of the most famous Revolutionary slogans of the 1960’s last week, while at the same time smugly trying to turn the…

Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time.
