Jeremy Scahill Outlines How Obama Made Assassination Formal US Policy

Rise Up Times

“All Americans should be outraged at the idea that when we’re killing large numbers of people in Muslim countries around the world without knowing who they are, that we somehow are not going to pay a price later?”

By | Mint Press News

Editor’s Note

On May 5, I interviewed The Intercept’s Jeremy Scahill about the new book released this week, “The Assassination Complex.” It has a foreword from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and an afterword by The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald. The book collects the organization’s journalistic work based on the “Drone Papers,” which were provided to the media organization by a whistleblower, who disclosed top secret documents on the government’s expansion of assassination policy in warfare on, and away from, declared battlefields.

Scahill spoke with me for a little over 40 minutes. It was part of…

“MSG-Treated” Lab Rats are Obese Rats

The FDA has set no limits on how much of it [MSG] can be added to food. They claim it’s safe to eat in any amount. But how can they claim it’s safe when there are hundreds of scientific studies with titles like these:

Those Who Wage Peace Can’t Count on the Mainstream Media for Support

Rise Up Times

And the race goes on. So does the war, but you’d never know that the one had anything to do with the other.

Even when the mainstream media trouble themselves to acknowledge that the primary season remains open on the Democratic side, that Bernie Sanders — and his millions of supporters — are still in the race, the Bernie revolution is never portrayed as addressing foreign policy and the still-failing, still-catastrophic war on terror.

Yet the war is there, shredding the national economy as it shreds much of the Middle East and, indeed, the whole planet.

Nuclear waste dumping is a NATIONAL issue in Canada: why not in Australia?


Opposition to the project, though, has swelled. More than 180 county boards, city councils and other local elected bodies near the Great Lakes in both countries have passed proclamations urging a veto of the plan.


Plan to store nuclear waste near Great Lakes proves radioactive, WP   By Steve Friess May 16 KINCARDINE, Ontario — If there was an off-key moment during the otherwise flawlessly executed trip to the U.S. Capitol this spring by the new Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, it might have come when he was cornered by Rep. Debbie Dingell.

“We never want to see nuclear waste in the Great Lakes,” the freshman Democrat from Michigan sternly told Trudeau during a visit to the office of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

America’s Legacy Will Be Its Downfall: Empire Always Comes Home

Rise Up Times

Amidst the constant propaganda and dehumanizing method of reporting “news” in the West, both the humanity and the wishes of the Syrian people are lost completely.

By Brandon Turbeville Global Research May 06, 2016 Activist Post 5 May 2016


Remember, it’s supposed to come right back here because that which the U.S. has created and maybe, perhaps, even the very reason for being that America was set up to do, is almost accomplished. Once it’s accomplished, they’ll be doing the same thing back home. You’ll SUBMERGE into the world system you helped create. Alan

9/11 Widow Terry Strada Fights To Release 28 Pages.


By Jerry Alatalo

aaa-40Alphabet Stating the “28 Pages” classified by the George W. Bush administration after September 11, 2001 for reasons of “national security” are “the tip of the iceberg” as to what actually occurred on 9/11, Terry Strada, whose husband perished that historic day, is still pushing – and waiting – for President Barack Obama to declassify the information. Her cause, joined by the many other surviving family members and an increasing number of people in America and around the Earth, is absolutely clear, legitimate and morally correct.

While it has become incontrovertible over the nearly 15 years since the massively consequential events of that day to men and women who’ve only modestly researched the story that there are serious unanswered questions remaining unresolved, one has to feel a special empathy for the family of those who perished. It’s hard to imagine the extreme levels of personal frustration, psychological and…
