8 Year old fighting for so-called Free Syrian Army
It’s bad enough that children are being killed, injured, orphaned and traumatized by these so called rebels but to turn them into killers at 8 years old is just plain evil
How Not to Teach About the Iraq War
The official title of the U.S. invasion of Iraq was “Operation Iraqi Freedom.”

But that’s not what children are learning in American schools.

Congress, for example, had no problem doling out hundreds of billions to bail out big banks, expending hundreds of billions on tax cuts for the wealthy, or even subsidizing tens of billions to big corporate agribusinesses, which is what farms America’s soil these days (not the small farms that relied on federal assistance after the Depression destroyed America’s crops). And yet Congress claims to have insufficient funds—not even $10 billion over ten years—to bail out the millions of kids in this country who go malnourished every day.

America’s History of Assassinations
By Mark Ames
Ignorance of the history of US assassination policy still runs right through today, with the repetition of another myth: That President Obama’s extrajudicial drone-assassinations of American citizens is “unprecedented” and “radical” and that “not even George Bush targeted American citizens.

Indigenous women at risk from Canadian Police
Panties to replace those taken by police who rape in British Columbia, Canada to destroy genetic evidence.
The very people sworn to protect women in Canada are becoming their abusers, rapists and murderers. That is, if the woman is indigenous, Indian.
Human Rights Watch presents a damning report on Police brutality to Indian women in British Columbia. In spite of legislation protecting women, there is a culture of contempt and violence amongst some elements of Canadian policing. It is a culture reflected in a greater or lesser degree in other countries where overt racism is allowed to persist.
This important report must be read and acted upon.

A Rape a Minute, a Thousand Corpses a Year
Hate Crimes in America (and Elsewhere)
By Rebecca Solnit
January 25, 2013 “Information Clearing House” – Here in the United States, where there is a reported rape every 6.2 minutes, and one in five women will be raped in her lifetime, the rape and gruesome murder of a young woman on a bus in New Delhi on December 16th was treated as an exceptional incident. The story of the alleged rape of an unconscious teenager by members of the Steubenville High School football team was still unfolding, and gang rapes aren’t that unusual here either. Take your pick: some of the 20 men who gang-raped an 11-year-old in Cleveland, Texas, were sentenced in November, while the instigator of the gang rape of a 16-year-old in Richmond, California, was sentenced in October, and four men who gang-raped a 15-year-old near New Orleans were sentenced in April, though the six men who gang-raped a 14-year-old in Chicago last fall are still at large. Not that I actually went out looking for incidents: they’re everywhere in the news, though no one adds them up and indicates that there might actually be a pattern.

Nazi revisionism and The Inequality Report – The Palestinian Minority in Israel
Nazi Revisionism is flooding the internet. One of the major tenets of this anti-historical approach is that Hitler was not anti-Semitic. Likewise claims that Palestinian citizens living in Israel are treated fairly without racism, cannot be substantiated.
Here is just some the historical evidence that refutes those claims including primary sources for the Nuremberg Laws
In 1925/26 Hitler published Mein Kampf. Here is just a small portion of what he said.
“…the personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the living shape of the Jew.”
“The black-haired Jewish youth lies in wait for hours on end, satanically glaring at and spying on the unsuspicious girl whom he plans to seduce, adulterating her blood and removing her from the bosom of her own people. The Jew uses every possible means to undermine the racial foundations of a subjugated people. (Book 1 Chap 11)”
“Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: ‘by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.”
In 1933 the new National Socialist government under Hitler instigated or instituted these:
Public burning of books by Jews and anti-Nazis
Police and the courts no longer protect Jews
April boycotts of Jewish shops – for one day, Germans are told not to buy from shops and business owned by Jews
SA stand outside shops to discourage people from going inside
‘Kosher’- ritual slaughter of animals banned
Department of Racial Hygiene (‘ethnic cleansing’) established
Jews are prohibited from owning land
Jewish students excluded from exams in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and law
Jews excluded from military service
Nuremberg Laws deny Jews many basic civil rights
Law for ‘The Protection of German Blood and German Honour’ forbade mixed marriages
Jews no longer allowed to vote and lose German citizenship
Benefit payments to large Jewish families stopped
Jews banned from parks, restaurants and swimming pools
Jews forbidden to use the German greeting ‘Heil Hitler’
Jews no longer allowed electrical/optical equipment, bicycles, typewriters or records
Passports for Jews to travel abroad restricted
Many Jewish students removed from German schools and universities
Special identity cards issued to Jews
Jews excluded from cinema, theatre, concerts, exhibitions, beaches and holiday resorts
Jews forced to add the names Sarah or Israel to their own
Kristallnacht (9 November) – a night of terrible violence in Germany. German and Austrian Jews are murdered, synagogues burnt and desecrated and shop windows smashed. Thousands of Jews are arrested
Jewish children expelled from German schools
Jews’ passports stamped with a red letter ‘J’. Some have passports removed to prevent them leaving the country.
NOTE: all the above were before WW2. The Germans documented everything meticulously.
THE NUREMBERG LAWS
Ben S. Austin
The Congress of the National Socialist Workers’ Party (NAZI) convened in Nuremberg, Germany on September 10, 1935. Among the many items of business on the Nazi agenda was the passage of a series of laws designed (a) to clarify the requirements of citizenship in the Third Reich, (b) to assure the purity of German blood and German honor and (b) to clarify the position of Jews in the Reich. These three laws, passed on September 15, 1935, and the numerous auxiliary laws which followed them are called the Nuremberg Laws. They are reprinted here in their entirety. Please take special note of the similarity between these laws and the Jim Crow Laws which were passed in the United States following the Compromise of 1877, upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in Plessy vs Ferguson (1896) and remained in effect until the court reversed the “separate but equal doctrine in Brown vs the Board of Education of Topeka

- Law of Protection of the German Race: Citizenship

NBC’s War for Fun and Profit
A new reality show of soldiers and celebrities playing war games showcases our national religion: military worship
By Glenn Greenwald
August 14, 2012 “Information Clearing House” — A new military-themed reality show from NBC, entitled “Stars Earn Stripes,” debuts tonight. The show “enthusiastically melds warfare and fame,” as a Washington Post review today put it. It features eight celebrities (using the loosest definition of that term) — such as husband-of-Sarah Todd Palin, former Superman Dean Cain, and former boy band member Nick Lachey — paired up with “military and law enforcement veterans, including a Green Beret, a SWAT officer, two Marine sergeants, a retired member of the Delta Force and two Navy SEALs”, whom NBC hails as the “Bad Ass Operatives.” They’re all under the “command” of Gen. Wesley Clark, who once actually thought he should be President, as he co-hosts this reality show with former Dancing with the Stars host Samantha Harris.

THE PENTAGON’S CHILD RECRUITING STRATEGY | from Project Censored
Military recruiters have been given legal authority to openly recruit adolescents on high school campuses, and tacit authority to recruit both adolescents and younger children through more subtle means. Techniques employed include those that are known to be harmful to children, including repeated exposure to violent games and images. Recruiters rely on the immature status of their prey to capture them with false promises, and subterfuge. Military recruitment of children must be understood for what it is: predatory.

Western attempts to destroy Syria have not been going to plan, revealing that what the West fears most is a peaceful resolution to the crisis
By Dan Glazebrook
May 05, 2012 “Information Clearing House” The strategy was simple, clear, tried and tested. It had been used successfully not only against Libya, but also Kosovo (in 1999), and was rapidly underway in Syria. It was to run as follows: train proxies to launch armed provocations; label the state’s response to these provocations as genocide; intimidate the UN Security Council into agreeing that “something must be done”; incinerate the army and any other resistance with fragmentation bombs and Hellfire missiles; and finally install a weak, compliant government to sign off new contracts and alliances drawn up in London, Paris and Washington, whilst the country tore itself apart.

“If I Wanted America To Be A Dictatorship”
Micro Documentary by Libertarian Film Maker and Activist Fabian4Liberty.
Did the tea party write this?
“If I wanted dictatorship. . . I would create food stamps and entitlement to dependence”
So he wants to cut social spending when there is more unemployment than ever before.
“and vaccinate our children with deadly diseases, I would create a scientific tyranny where one in 88 boys has autism”
So he believes the many, many times disproven myths linking vaccination and autism; and does not understand science. More, he is actively creating fear of the one thing that has prevented the horrific plagues of the past. For the first time in history, just last month, there were no cases of polio in the world; a dreadful disease that only vaccination could defeat.
“I would teach children that our founders were racist slave owners, white elites . . .” so critical thinking, an understanding of history and teacher independence are on his list.
Here is where his heart lies.
“I’d create a campaign that targets gun owners, pro life supporters, Ron Paul supporters, libertarians… .
Note – he doesn’t say workers, women, our elders, gays, indigenous peoples, blacks, the sick, people with a disability, the under educated, the debt ridden, the forclosed upon, the young men and women forced by poverty into the army, the dissidents, the people of all the other places in the world where US imperialism is creating holocaust.
All of them are being targeted by the oligarchy that rules America.

Bradley Manning: A Show Trial of State Secrecy
The US government’s suppression of all accountability and transparency in prosecuting the WikiLeaks suspect is totalitarian
By Michael Ratner
April 24, 2012 ”
The Guardian” — On 24 April, a hearing in one of the most important court martial cases in decades will take place in Fort Meade, Maryland. The accused faces life in prison for the 22 charges against him, which include “aiding the enemy” and “transmitting defense information”. His status as an alleged high-profile whistleblower and the importance of the issues his case raises should all but guarantee the proceedings a prominent spot in major media, as well as in public debate.
Yet, in spite of the grave implications, not to mention the press and public’s first amendment right of full and open access to criminal trials, no outside parties will have access to the evidence, the court documents, court orders or off-the-record arguments that will ultimately decide his fate. Under these circumstances, whatever the outcome of the case, the loser will be the transparency necessary for democratic government, accountable courts and faith in our justice system.
