The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will face some push-back during the big Thanksgiving travel week, as part of the Alex-Jones-ordered “Opt Out and Film Week.”
From Nov. 19 through Nov. 26, Jones is encouraging travelers to refuse to go through the radiation-laden body scanners. They should also film the invasive body pat-down that will likely ensue if they decide to opt-out.
Circa 1870, the North fought the South in the Civil War.
Half a century later, around 1920, worker unrest, racial tensions and anti-Communist sentiment caused another nationwide upsurge of violence. Then, 50 years later, the Vietnam War and Civil Rights Movement triggered a third peak in violent political, social and racial conflict.
Fifty years after that will be 2020. If history continues to repeat itself, we can expect a violent upheaval in [...]
Attorney General Eric Holder told a council of African American church leaders Wednesday that the “sacred” right to vote is under assault nationwide, with federal lawsuits and at least a dozen state laws that could hinder – or block – minorities’ access to the ballot box this fall.
“In my travels across this country, I’ve heard a consistent drumbeat of concern from citizens, who – often for the first time in their lives [...]
I’ve had that opportunity to speak with dozens of protesters this past year from Occupy and similar movements. I’ve also spoken with many more store owners, residents and people working in the area. I keep hearing these two things from the public:
I agree with the protesters but they are acting juvenile.
What specifically do they want?
Now I understand the majority of the time it isn’t the protesters causing the violence and [...]
“The civil rights movement was hard. Winning the vote for women was hard. Making sure that workers had some basic protections was hard,” President Obama said at a fundraiser while talking about how difficult it is to bring about “change” in politics.
“Around the world, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, what they did was hard. It takes time. It takes more than a single term. It takes more than a single president. It [...]
Like a fever, revolutions come in waves. And if this is a revolution, then it broke first on November 4, 2008, with the election of Barack Obama, second, on February 19, 2009, with the explosion of anger by Rick Santelli, giving birth to the Tea Party, and third, on September 10, 2011 with the #Occupy movements that are now spreading across the United States.
The souls in these movements must now decide [...]
President Obama spoke to the Congressional Black Caucus awards banquet over the weekend.
Those folks will stick with him in 2012, of course.
But they’ve been somewhat miffed in recent months that the first post-partisan president is doing too many deals with those Republicans and seeming to give in.
So, Obama needed to give the crowd some presidential love. He even brought his wife along. As with virtually all of [...]

CAPE TOWN (Reuters) – Considering she is the first black First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama does not talk a lot about race.
Though a descendant of slaves and spouse of the first African American president, Obama is more likely to opine on healthy eating than controversial racial divides.
But, by design or default, her trip this week to South Africa has brought the issue to the forefront of the [...]
Black lawmakers on Monday said GOP-proposed budget cuts would move the countryÂ in the opposite direction of the civil rights movement.
The lawmakers, all members of the Congressional Black Caucus, used the last day of Black History Month to argue the GOP-backed cuts would fall hardest on black Americans.
“It’s really especially poignant that this year during Black History Month, the Republican leadership has proposed a budget for [...]
The Federal Reserve System is a PRIVATE CORPORATION that controls the quantity of money in the system. It makes huge profits guaranteed by taxes. Repayment of interest to the central banks creates deflation.
See behind the curtain with ‘Secret of Oz,’ ‘Money as Debt,’ and ‘Creature from Jekyll Island’ documentaries on youtube. They show how and who the national debt is really owed.
Write your representatives and the President and [...]
The Civil Rights movement of the 1960s combined with LBJ’s Great Society initiatives created many federal and state distributive programs, some generating extensive largesse. By the time the 1990s arrived the unchecked expansion of government programs and the dangers their growth revealed voting masses as not reliably prudent. Thus, calls to limit burgeoning government gained credibility. Nevertheless, when new checks on institutional power came, they did not prudently constrain the [...]
