Rise Up Times finds it necessary to take a break from intensive posting on the RiseUpTimes.org blog for the time being due to health issues. Already you may have noticed I have cut back and am now re-blogging a lot of articles I find worthwhile.
I will still be posting on Rise Up Times Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler, Google+ and Pinterest pages as often as possible. I am not sure just how long this hiatus will last, but possibly until the end of February.
RiseUpTimes.org had a good year, with a substantial increase in views. Since our inception in 2010 we have steadily built a following of you, our thoughtful and intelligent viewers, with our emphasis on contemplative articles and cutting edge videos that alalysis news and current issues.
Our interest has not been so much in posting around current politics, especially now during presidential elections, as in insightful commentary on the election process and related issues. On Rise Up Times Pinterest you will find a board called U.S. Politics that covers the 2016 presidential election with speeches by candidates as well as specific commentary. (In order to access Pinterest you need to become a member, a free, simple process.)
On Rise Up Times Pinterest you will also find a board about the Environment/ Climate Change, as well as the main Rise Up Times board and boards on Surveillance, Action Now (civil disobedience and other actions including but not limited to antiwar and climate change activities), and The Drone Papers (based on The Intercepts’ in depth articles on drone warfare by Jeremy Scahill with the addition of illuminating articles about drones). All these boards may be accessed by going to the original Rise Up Times Pinterest page.
I had been posting links to articles of interest on various topics that are listed at the top of the RiseUpTimes.org page. I am sorry to say that I will not be able to continue these postings at the present time, but they will resume when I am again able to give my full attention again to Rise Up Times.
Rise Up Times is honored to be able to bring you exclusive interviews of interest in collaboration with Women Against Military Madness, most recently the excellent interview VIDEO | MAZIN QUMSIYEH LIVE FROM BETHLEHEM with information you won’t find elsewhere and with Mazin’s great courage and perseverance in the face of the infitada. And the illuminating interview with Diana Johnstone about her new book ‘Queen of Chaos’: The Misadventures of Hillary Clinton with endorsements from Chris Hedges, Ralph Nader, Coleen Rowley, and William Blum. This book is about Hillary, but is also an in-depth look and cutting edge critique of U.S. foreign policy and what Hedges terms “predadatory corporate captialism.” VIDEO | DIANA JOHNSTONE ON ‘QUEEN OF CHAOS’ HILLARY CLINTON AND U.S. FOREIGN POLICY.
I will be sending out what has been a weekly report of posts on RiseUpTimes.org as often as possible. For all you great supporters, thank you!
