Contents of Alex Jones’ phone set to implicate Trump
Jan 6 rally organizers communicated with Trump Chief-of-Staff Mark Meadows

The contents of Alex Jones’ cellphone — which were accidentally handed over to the prosecution in their entirety by the shock jock’s own lawyers during the Sandy Hook defamation trial — could provide proof that Trump and members of his administration were directly involved in the planning of the illegal … READ MORE

Burned on the 4th of July

Congress refused to certify the Electoral College victory by the Democrat who had also won the popular vote — so the GOP loser was inaugurated as President.

You think it can’t happen here? But it did. The year was 1876.

Dr. Deaton of the Georgia Historical Society set the scene… READ MORE

Warrior on two fronts

Know his name: MAJ Gamaliel Turner. He conceived this weapon that may be Ukraine’s last, best hope of stopping Putin’s cruel armored columns. I’m here in this Soldier’s home near Fort Benning Georgia because his ballot was personally challenged by the county Chairman of the Republican Party. We will… READ MORE

Steven Donziger: A corporate criminal prosecution, orchestrated by Chevron

On October 1, 2021, human rights lawyer, Steven Donziger, was given a 6 month sentence — punishment for winning a $9 billion judgment against Chevron for poisoning the Amazon. On the day of his sentencing, I spoke extensively with Donziger about his extraordinary case. When he began his sentence at the federal prison in Danbury, CT, we began posting clips from this interview each week to keep his plight in the public eye. As Donziger approaches the end … READ MORE

When you corrode and corrupt democracy, it has consequences
How an axis of awful is blocking the oil we need from Venezuela to replace Russian oil and stop Putin

Venezuela has the largest reserves of oil on the planet. If you look at OPEC, they put Saudi Arabia as number two. Venezuela’s producing very little oil, not even enough for its own needs at this moment, when it was producing 3.2 million barrels of oil a day. If we unleash oil from Venezuela, then Putin’s profit … READ MORE

Venezuela Can Bring Putin to his Knees

I’m sure Putin is laughing when he hears Biden list his new so-called “sanctions” which are as serious as canceling Putin‘s Walmart discount card. Want to stop Putin‘s tanks?

Lift the cruel, crazy, unjustified embargo of Venezuela. That nation is capable of pumping… READ MORE

Like most conflicts over the past 2000 years, this is, at heart, a religious war.

Kazakhstan Uprising against Rulers Bribed by Exxon, BP

In 2013, I was thrown out of Kazakhstan by its President, former KGB chief Nursultan Nazarbayev. Today, January 6, it was Nazarbayev who was tossed out of Kazakhstan — the result of an uprising by a public fed up with a kleptocratic murder-ocracy cosseted by the bribery of Western oil companies, the oil-philic Bush, Clinton and Obama State Departments and Putin’s … READ MORE

What Do You Call a Failed Insurrection? PRACTICE

Forget the whack-jobs who invaded the Capitol one year ago today. These “insurrectionists” were schmucks with no chance of overturning the election. (I don’t dismiss the gravity of their actions–they crushed the skull of a policeman and threatened other murders in the hall of the people.) But truly, the real danger was in the Oval Office when, two days earlier, Trump peddled a… READ MORE
