Speaking Truth

Heard in Passing,

Courage vs. Cowardice    Thanks Eleni
"My brother Mark, father of my nephew Chase who was killed in Iraq in 2005, was at the beach, saw a man caught in an undertow, ran for the water, dove in, and pulled the swimmer to shore. It was Mark who said words so intensely brave I used them at a peace rally in D.C.  Mark told me someone had approached and told him that Chase died protecting his country. Mark said, “No, Chase did not die protecting his country. The suicide bomber that killed Chase died protecting HIS country.”

18,000 Syrians have had organs harvested so far during this war. Israel is the global leader in black market human organs and slavery. Turkey and USA are on the team. Thanks Eleni.  Good links in this piece.

Mohammed Ali was a human rights activist against the imperial war machine, which used conscripted slave-soldiers to slaughter "gooks" in far away Vietnam. He could have died like John and Bobby and Martin, but he didn't, until now.
"No, I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over."

George Stephanopoulos interviews Hillary Clinton about the personal email account at State, and he won't let go. Four times he returns to the State Department conclusion, which Clinton will not accept, and he finally says, "so you reject the conclusion" and asks her about the FBI investigation, to which she answers that she has not been asked to talk to the FBI, and that "she would rather do so sooner than later". .
How "sooner"? Tomorrow? 
Stephanopoulos is a White House insider, Bill Clinton's Press Secretary in 1993.
Clinton looks hurt and surprised by the end. That boy always knew his place before.

In 2008 Hillary Clinton contested the Democratic primary against Barack Obama, and said that the decision would rest with the superdelegates, since there were not enough pledged votes to declare a nominee. That's the same thing Bernie Sanders is saying, and the FBI isn't investigating him.

Bernie Sanders says that he will contest the Democratic primary up to the vote. Superdelegates don't vote until they vote, and they can vote for whoever they feel is the best candidate that day.

"Only a captured government drone could put out a report showing only 38,000 new jobs created, with the working age population rising by 205,000, and have the balls to report the unemployment rate plunged from 5.0% to 4.7%, the lowest since August 2007."

Field Marshall Montgomery: "Rule One, on Page One of The Book of War, is 'Don't march on Moscow'" 
Russians in America warn Americans that we are being lied to and that attacking Russia will get everybody, all of us, killed this time around.

Auburn University has a Rural Studio project, designing and building affordable housing for poor folks in rural Mississippi.
This is rediscovered in this article I saw. The cost-effective engineering and use of on site human workers are important parts of the community support. Here is the article, and then the link to all of the projects they have done. Lots of innovation. Lessons for all.

Actions Speak Loudest
