UPDATE ON THE FLOTILLA: Food and Medical Supplies for Gaza STOPPED

Coleen Rowley: “I have to say how disappointed we are - and actually horrified - that such powerful, corrupt government forces can connive to prevent food, medicine, and humanitarian aid from reaching disease and famine-stricken Gaza. It’s evil!” Barry Riesch: “Stopping the boat shows that Israel is intimidated by us and that our own country cares more about supporting Israel’s illegal blockade and genocide than helping U.S. citizens deliver aid to Gaza. They can stop the flotilla today, but it will come back even stronger.”

A Life on Our Planet: David Attenborough (video)

David Attenborough's take on a simple solution to ease if not halt the climate crisis. If only those who have control of the political system would listen instead of being involved in petty politics and pushing more and more fossil fuel sources and use.

Judaism and Zionism, by Sue Ann Martinson

Israel has taken the position that it is innocent of any wrongdoing even though at minimum since Nakba in 1948 they have perpetrated an apartheid neo-fascist state...with use of...tactics borrowed from their previous oppressors in Nazi Germany. And now they have adopted GENOCIDE, as they systematically bomb and destroy Gaza.

Modernizing Nuclear War, by Joel Weisberg

Modern nuclear warheads, which the new delivery systems will be hosting, release far more energy than did the original bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

SWLRT SNAFU: Southwest Light Rail Train—Situation Normal All “Fouled” Up

The over-budget will be paid exclusively by Hennepin County taxpayers. Hennepin County’s 2023 population was 1,320,307. With a $1,000,000,000 debt that would be about $1,000 of “cost-sharing” owed by each man, woman and child in the county.

Here’s Why U.S. Elites Support Israel No Matter What

Chris Hedges: “Fire Weather”: Big Oil’s Climate Conflagration

The destruction of vast forests sold to timber companies and the scraping away of the topsoil have left behind poisoned wastelands. This industrial operation, perhaps the largest such project in the world, is rapidly accelerating the release of the carbon emissions that will, if left unchecked, soon render the planet uninhabitable for humans and most other species.   

They Are Not Numbers in Gaza and Photo Essay, Twin Cities Protests

As always, we as U.S. citizens, must ask first what is the role of the U.S.? The answer is that, along with political support, the U.S. has been providing the bombs, bullets, and fighter jets to Israel.

Glenn Greenwald: Neocon Queen Victoria Nuland Ends Her Reign: Exposing a Catastrophic Career

Nuland’s status as both a singular force for war and destruction—and her status as one of the most vivid symbols of how bipartisan and insulated from elections is this warmongering ideology—makes her particularly worthy of examination, especially upon her glorious resignation, the final end to her bloodthirsty reign. Understanding her trajectory is vital to understanding how Washington really functions.
