I’m delighted that the video is now available of my speaking event, “Guantánamo, Torture and the Trump Agenda,” at Revolution Books in Harlem, which took place last week as part of my annual visit to the US to call for the closure of the prison on and around the anniversary of its opening — on January 11.

Chilcot Report critical of Tony Blair, British intelligence in lead-up to Iraq War
with David Swanson
RT America on Jul 6, 2016
After a seven-year-long investigation, Chairman of the Iraq Inquiry Committee Sir John Chilcot released his report on the United Kingdom’s role in the Iraq War. The Chilcot Report is highly critical of the UK’s intelligence services, saying they provided “flawed” information about Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction. RT correspondent Polly Boiko has more on the report from London.

This Fourth of July, U.S. war makers will be drinking fermented grain, grilling dead flesh, traumatizing veterans with colorful explosions, and thanking their lucky stars and campaign contributors that they don’t live in rotten old England.

WASHINGTON – As a reaction to the rising cost of gasoline, President Bush urged Congress to pass his Protect Earth Bill, better known as the No Dinosaur Left Behind Act, which gives tax incentives to anyone who drills for oil in their back yard. “We need all Americans to throw their hand in the ring to help the energy crisis,” the President said, “so I’m not only de-banning the Democrat ban on oil expatriation that we need to have, but give a tax break to anyone who becomes their own backyard wildcatter.” Continue reading

President Bush speech today
Good morning my friends,
I have stopped doing my current research and writing on various topics today to address the recent speech given by President Bush just moments ago. I simply had to speak out and point out some key “media-spinning” that is going WAY over the top and many people may not realize that we are in a critical point here in the USA. Continue reading
