Google, your data suppression methods are obvious, easily recorded, abysmally inept and generally pathetic.

The simple fact that you actively engage in suppressing this and other alternative news sites means we have won and TRUTH will prevail in the end.

text Witness to a Colonized and Wounded Human Psyche Phil Rockstroh via jane, Thursday, Oct 26 2017, 12:30am
Human sexuality mirrors human culture. Mating dances of seduction and refusal, and acts of non-consensual aggression cannot be separated from traits witnessed, practiced and internalized by the people of a particular society. It is impossible to close the bedroom door to the culture at large. Eros not only inhabits the genitals and the heart but Anima mundi as well.

Xi and Putin image Xi’s Road Map to the Chinese Dream Pepe Escobar via cyd, Thursday, Oct 26 2017, 12:05am
Now that President Xi Jinping has been duly elevated to the Chinese Communist Party pantheon in the rarified company of Mao Zedong Thought and Deng Xiaoping Theory, the world will have plenty of time to digest the meaning of “Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.” (story and 1 image)

Two very different faces of world leadership were on display this week. In Beijing, President Xi Jinping delivered a bold, outward-looking vision of Chinese global leadership. Meanwhile, in Washington President Donald Trump was embroiled in yet more egotistical infighting and tawdry claims of media lies. (story and 1 image)

text Trump’s ‘Beautiful’ Words and Unreality jess, Sunday, Oct 22 2017, 8:54pm
It’s not the fact that Trump has the vocabulary of a 10yo, dubya Bush had a similar ‘dexterity’ with words and grammar. So, was moron Bush a prelude to imbecile Trump, clearly yes. The dumbest of dumb world leaders now unquestionably emanate from the USA, the dumbest of the dumb. Though that is not my principal point, as the world is well aware of the fact.

As a youth it was easy to realise that the system we live in today is sick, more evident today than ever, as psychopaths and extremely psychologically sick individuals now lead nations -- Donald Trump, for instance.

The Battle of Kirkuk lasted less than 24 hours. In a lightning – and mostly bloodless – offensive, the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) retook control of the North Oil Co. and North Gas Co. headquarters, the K1 military base, the Bai Hassan oil field, and two domes of the Kirkuk oil field on Monday.

text Trump Caught Out Lying AGAIN jane, Wednesday, Oct 18 2017, 11:15pm
Trump’s latest episode of transparent lying relates to his accusation that Obama did not contact relatives of soldiers killed in action; furthermore, Trump recently displayed the usual characteristics of a sociopath by accusing/blaming everyone else of lying when it is plain that HE is the pathological, infantile liar. I say infantile as he is clearly a child attempting to lie his way, unsuccessfully, out of trouble, especially when he is caught dead to rights.

text ‘The Small always Overcomes the Large’ nano, Tuesday, Oct 17 2017, 11:19pm
The title is actually a military adage, which is as old as warfare. Consider the biblical allegory of David and Goliath, how a lumbering highly equipped with ‘superior’ armaments, giant of a man was defeated by the agility, speed and cunning of a small boy with an effective (in the right hands/application) ‘primitive’ weapon, and it was used to great effect, which is the essential transmission/message of the story. In fact, as history records numerous times, the bigger they are the more likely the chances of being defeated by a much smaller, agile force -- and I use ‘agile’ to cover tactics and strategy as well as lightning response and astounding ‘physical’ maneuverability.
