The NewsTrust format and idea are interesting for the possibility of a democratically influenced news source. It provides another channel for getting news and views out to the public, a channel without a visible filter of the corporate press.

The Ferguson model comes in an all white color, with protective armour (PA) crooked under the far right wing of the robot. Unit activities are coordinated by the downward beat of a baton.

The purchased puppets of plutocrats begin their politicized plunder. The GOP is now clearly identified as the POP, Plutocrats Over People. This must be stopped.

Big corporate money is not only buying elections and politicians, it is trying to convert education completely to propaganda for the cause of turning all power over to corporations. Slaves are so much cheaper workers. The corporate hold on mainstream media has already converted what used to be news, into disinformation infotainment, propaganda, or the mental anesthetic of sports.

Can the representatives of the people in Idaho enshadow their narrow socio-political personas, and approach climate change with their often hidden rational personas?

If the U.S. does not prosecute the Bush higher-ups for war crimes, our country will indeed be the shining blight on the hill. The press is also to blame for doing the anal rehydration of Cheney as they bring the evil zombie into the news again as though he was something other than an object of extreme disgust.

Since WikiLeaks is a citizen journalism organization, this suit tangentially has a major effect upon the freedom of press. Can war crimes be reported if the country that launches an offensive war and commits those war crimes uses their financial ties to financially throttle anybody who tries to do such reporting. You will not see anti-war news featured in most mainstream press unless they report on other people reporting on it. When finance and government merge, and control the ... More »

Pew reports important results of the racist economic disparity increasing in this country, but is a bit light on looking at the causes of the increasing disparity. Big financial interests destroying government oversight of banks led to a huge destruction of homeowner wealth very particularly in minority communities. Big international corporations and their money buying of politicians reduced any regulation of trade, so manufacturing jobs, which largely employed minorities, got shipped abroad. Failure of schools and the press to report on and advocate on these issues allowed disinformed and disinterested citizens to vote stupid or not at all.

We are all fracked unless people in all states across the nation raise hell and beat on their representatives to return toward a rational set of national policies. Kiss your grandchildren goodbye if they do not.

The rape, murder, torture, and perjury of our lying sub-human agents needs to be prosecuted, and prosecution is required under international law. If we are not a nation of laws, then maybe the world as a whole can pressure this require prosecution. And these are only the hell holes run by the Central Idiot Agency; the report does not include the renditions to lawless corners of the world.
