Your Honor and Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, I represent the case for William Shakespeare versus the United States Government. Shakespeare wrote during the Aristocratic Age of literature. His audience was living under Aristocracy. His words bit hard and penetrated the depth and deception of the Aristocratic mindset.

Former UN envoy to Yemen, Jamal Benomar, has given an undiplomatic assessment of the crisis in that country, in which he rhetorically explodes Saudi myths “justifying” the US-backed aerial bombing campaign. The Moroccan diplomat told media at the weekend that the ongoing conflict was a direct result of Houthi rebels having been excluded from the political process last year.

democracynow – Senate Finance Committee leaders Republican Orrin Hatch and Democrat Ron Wyden are expected to introduce a “fast-track” trade promotion authority bill as early as this week that would give the president authority to negotiate the secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal and then present it to Congress for a yes-or-no vote, with no amendments allowed. On Wednesday, more than 1,000 labor union members rallied on Capitol Hill to call on Democrats to oppose “fast-track” authority. We speak with two people closely following the proposed legislation: Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, and Rep. Alan Grayson, a Democrat from Florida.

April 04, 2010 — In his weekly address, President Obama strangely introduces a war theme into a message ostensibly about a holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ…y’know, the Prince of Peace.

Mr. President, Easter has nothing to do with war. Please stop trying to make Jesus fit with your outlook on war and international relations. You just cheapen both.

DON'T ATTACK IRAN

Iranian research and development on advanced centrifuges research & development (R&D) remains unresolved

The framework agreement reached on Thursday night clearly gives the P5+1 a combination of constraints on Iran’s nuclear programme that should reassure all but the most bellicose opponents of diplomacy. It also provides the basis for at least a minimum of sanctions relief in the early phase of its implementation that Iran required, but some of the conditions on that relief are likely create new issue between Iran and the Western powers over the process. The agreement’s dependence on decisions by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the penchant of Israeli intelligence for discovering new evidence of illicit Iranian activities will encourage moves to delay or obstruct relief of sanctions.

Had it just been another social injustice where just another man among many was cruelly put to death by just another unjust government, that would be bad enough. But since it is the Son Of God, who in perfect divine love gave his life for the entire world by becoming sin, bearing every pain mentally, physically, and spiritually, of every human being that had every lived and will ever live, it is THE Holocaust of unimaginable proportion and horror. So why do they call it Good Friday?

Good Friday - Crucifixion of Jesus BW

Image by Bo Insogna via Flickr

“Jesus is just alright with me” by the Doobie Brothers comes blaring out a car window. “I got a friend named Jesus” is heard from the song “Spirit in the sky”. Churches like Unity, Unitarian Universalism, The School of Metaphysics, and many, many others all have Jesus in their pantheon along with the other great divinities of world religions. Jesus the friend, the god, the myth. There is only one problem with this: lack of critical thinking. And if Europe is suffering from what many critics describe as “Metaphysical boredom”, then America is plagued by “Metaphysical lunacy”.

Tom "Benedict Arnold" Cotton

The real story is how enforcers of Likudist policy on Iran used a young Republican politician to try to provoke a breakdown in nuclear talks

The “open letter” from Senator Tom Cotton and 46 other Republican Senators to the leadership of Iran, which even Republicans themselves admit was aimed at encouraging Iranian opponents of the nuclear negotiations to argue that the United States cannot be counted on to keep the bargain, has created a new political firestorm. It has been harshly denounced by Democratic loyalists as “stunning” and “appalling”, and critics have accused the signers of the letter of being “treasonous” for allegedly violating a law forbidding citizens from negotiating with a foreign power.
