Reading Time: 3 minutes The common refrain that no unknown domestic plots exist, because “someone would have talked” and we would know about them…is plain wrong. People do talk—and suffer the consequences. So there aren’t many of them.
Reading Time: < 1 minute VIDEO. This talk by Dr. William F. Pepper, a friend to Martin Luther King who became James Earl Ray’s final attorney, is long, but well worth sitting through. Pepper powerfully and chillingly presents history and facts few of us know about—and forces us to rethink the explanation of King’s death which the establishment insists on perpetuating.
Reading Time: 5 minutes Heart-rending accounts of Syrians suffering at the hands of their government make powerful storytelling. But they hide the big-picture: a trumped-up opportunity for the West and its Arab allies to remove yet another “inconvenient” regime.

Reading Time: < 1 minute Russ Baker talks about HR 347—recently signed by President Obama—potential suppression of free speech, and what the bill is all about. Interviewed by Nicole Sandler. March, 2012
Reading Time: 6 minutes When it comes to the truth, it turns out you can’t trust the government. But you can’t trust those who tell you you can’t trust the government, either. See the Osama bin Laden burial story, for example.

Reading Time: 3 minutes Did you hear? The corporate media has finally found a safe way into the 9/11 investigation story, one where they have long feared to delve. The process is extremely telling about the deficiencies of our media establishment—and about the ways most of us get our information.
Reading Time: 4 minutes Everyone’s talking about Bill O’Reilly’s upcoming book about the JFK assassination. Will it tell all? Don’t bet on it. O’Reilly took that approach, years ago. But his career ambitions dictated another trajectory.
Reading Time: 3 minutes Most news coverage focuses exclusively on uprisings backed by the West, by corporate interests and by the Saudi royal dictatorship. We thought we’d update you on one that is deliberately ignored.

Reading Time: 9 minutes We’re being told that Israel is itching to take out the Iranian regime. But there are other players behind the scenes. And their warnings to Israel not to launch an attack on Tehran sound hollow.

And did a huge investment in Twitter by a Saudi prince have anything to do with the move?
Reading Time: 5 minutes The Navy SEAL raid that rescued an American woman in Somalia is heartening. But who is really being rescued in these very occasional high-profile media events?
Reading Time: 4 minutes Plenty of new “JFK assassination” material coming down the pike for you avid consumers. Too bad it’s mostly garbage. When exactly did courage and truth-seeking go out of fashion?
