Doesn’t It Affect Us All?

  In June of 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court decided, in the case Williams v. Pennsylvania, that an appellate judge can’t decide an appeal in a case in which he or she had a significant role during prosecution, specifically a case involving the death penalty. It was decided by a 5-3 ruling that Terence Williams’ […]

Power Is Not A Thought, It’s An Action

So don’t think about it, take it… We are taught, in theory, in lessons of morality, that justice always prevails. We are taught that she/he who upholds concepts such as compassion, integrity and justice will always “win” in the end. (We’re morbidly obsessed with “winning” everything in our winner-take-all, lottery mentality version of a society.) […]

The Lobby-USA, Parts 1-4

Did The ‘Cold War’ Ever Actually End?

Or have the combatants merely changed? Corporate predators don’t shoot us (usually), but they use more discreet weapons to kill and maim. Many don’t appear to be weapons because we’ve been conditioned not to question the rules of engagement set by these manipulative rulers. Fact: Pesticides and herbicides are actually biological weapons. And we use […]
