Probable Cause with Sibel Edmonds- “Kill First, Ask Later … Wait! Never mind! Don’t Ask or Answer Whatsoever!”

In this episode I provide a brief presentation on our dangerous and Kafkaesque world where our nation claims a 100% right to kill with no reason or explanation needed, a 100% right to kidnap and torture, and a 100% right to blacklist and surveil without having to show any justification. We are going to talk about a US code of operation that confidently says “Kill First, Ask Later … Wait! Actually never mind! Don’t Ask or Answer Whatsoever!” We’ll discuss our murders by drones, our secret no fly lists, secret surveillance target lists, and much more. You may consider yourself immunized from these factual absurdities, but I can assure you: You Are Wrong!

America: Government by Terror, Torture & Tyranny

Coming Forward Threatens America's Imperial Ambitions

America governs lawlessly. Out-of-control rogues run things. Conditions go from bad to worse. Tyranny threatens everyone. So does possible global war.

Fear-mongering, saber rattling, hot wars, proxy ones, drone ones, geopolitical ones, financial ones, anti-populist ones, mass incarceration, censorship, lawless sanctions, subversion, sabotage, targeted assassinations, mass murder, cyberwar, and horrific draconian harshness reflect out-of control governance gone mad.

America: Police State Ruthlessness Writ Large

Washington Prioritizes State Terrorism

Cold-blooded barbarity reflects US policy. Democracy's more illusion than reality. Rule of law principles don't matter. They're systematically spurned.

Dissent's increasingly targeted. Freedom's imperiled. Obama's ruthless. He exceeds the worst of George Bush. He's waging war on truth-tellers. He targeted more whistleblowers than all his predecessors combined. [Read more...]

Obama: Defending the Indefensible

Obama Reflects the Worst of Rogue Leadership

His doublespeak duplicity reflects the last refuge of a scoundrel. He's the worst in recent memory. Perhaps the worst ever. Forked tongue rhetoric can't disguise it.

Throughout his tenure, he governed lawlessly. He's done so at home and abroad. He spurns rule of law principles and other democratic values. 

Nothing suggests change. Business as usual continues. War on humanity is policy. Rogue leaders govern that way. Obama threatens everyone.

On May 23, he spoke at Washington's National Defense University. He defended what he urged changing four years earlier. More on his Thursday address below.

On May 21, 2009, he spoke at the National Archives. He addressed national security. He said America can't be safe "unless we enlist the power of our most fundamental values." [Read more...]

The Reality Principle -Episode 17

“War, Peace, and the Search for Our Humanity” with Kathy Kelly

RPLogoThis week, Eric has an in-depth conversation with peace activist and author Kathy Kelly. They discuss the human side of war: the children taken from their parents, the fathers ruthlessly assassinated, the lives permanently shattered. Kathy provides emotionally moving first-hand accounts of her experiences in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Gaza and other war zones, explaining the impact on individuals that have touched her life. Eric and Kathy examine the use of drones and the redefinition of war under the Obama administration. In addition, they critique the very notions of "humanitarian intervention" and the "Responsibility to Protect" doctrine as little more than rhetorical devices used to justify and legitimize blatant imperialist aggression. Kathy and Eric also provide insights into how to build an effective, broad-based antiwar movement in the US.

Kathy Kelly is an activist, author and co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Non-Violence. She has worked extensively in the US and around the world on issues as far-ranging as poverty, nuclear disarmament, and US imperialism.

Empire, Power, and People with Andrew Gavin Marshall- Episode 56

America's Militarization of Africa

EPPLast week it was announced that the US was establishing a drone base in Niger, while France continues its war in neighboring Mali. What is the West doing in Africa? To answer that, it would help to look at the role of the West in the past few decades across the continent, with France alone engaging in over 50 military interventions in Sub-Saharan Africa since the end of World War II, the United States participating or tacitly supporting some of the world's worst conflicts, specifically the Congo War, which has killed over 6 million people since 1997. The establishment of AFRICOM in 2008 has marked Africa as the world's battlefield for domination in the coming decades. The new drone base in Niger, is a symbol of the warfare on its way to the world's richest continent, where only the people are poor.

Empire, Power, and People with Andrew Gavin Marshall- Episode 55

Rhetoric vs. Reality in Obama's Terror War

EPPFollowing upon last week's discussion of drone warfare, this week's episode places drone war in the context of the "war on terror," or what the Obama administration has come to call "Overseas Contingency Operations." How and why did drone warfare become so popular under Obama, what other policies are advanced in the name of the "terror war" and can drone war itself be perceived as "international terrorism"? These are some questions and issues examined in this episode.

Empire, Power, and People with Andrew Gavin Marshall- Episode 54

Introduction to the Drone Wars

EPPFlying killer robots in the skies, operated out of a base in Florida, kill thousands of innocent people in countries all over the world. It sounds like science fiction, but unfortunately, this is a reality in places like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, Libya, and even the Philippines. It began under Bush, but accelerated rapidly under President Obama, with over 300 drone strikes in Pakistan over the last four years alone. The program is highly secretive, in violation of international law, and targets rescuers, funerals, and families, destroying communities and destabilizing entire regions. This episode is an introduction to the drone wars; a most modern form of international terrorism.
