The Osama Bin Laden Myth

The Osama Bin Laden Myth

An interview with Osama bin Laden was conducted by the Karachi, Pakistan, daily newspaper Ummat and published on Sept. 28, 2001. The alleged “mastermind” of 9/11 said that he and al-Qaida had nothing to do with the 9/11 attack.

A Culture Of Delusion

A Culture Of Delusion

A writer’s greatest disappointments are readers who have knee-jerk responses. The majority of readers are happy when a writer tells them what they want to hear and are unhappy when he writes what they don’t want to hear.

The Dispossessed Majority

The Dispossessed Majority

The working poor have been convinced by Republican propaganda that voting Democrat means giving the working poor’s tax dollars to the non-working poor, to providing medical care and schooling for illegal aliens, and being soft on terrorism.

The Collapsing U.S. Economy And The End Of The World

The Collapsing U.S. Economy And The End Of The World

Two gratuitous wars doubled the U.S. public debt. This is the reason there is no money for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, the environment and the social safety net. Americans got nothing out of the wars.

No Jobs For Americans

No Jobs For Americans

On March 9, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) announced that 227,000 new nonfarm payroll jobs were created by the economy during February. Is the government’s claim true? No.

Why Can’t Americans Have Democracy?

Why Can’t Americans Have Democracy?

For Washington “democracy” is a weapon of mass destruction. When Washington brings “democracy” to a country, it means the country’s destruction, as in Libya and Iraq. It doesn’t mean democracy. Libya is in chaos, a human rights nightmare without an effective government. Now the U.S. is about to bring “democracy” to Syria.

Will Iran Be Attacked?

Washington has made tremendous preparations for a military assault on Iran. In addition to massive military preparations, there is the propaganda war against Iran that has been ongoing since 1979 when Washington’s puppet, the Shah of Iran, was overthrown by the Iranian revolution.
