America, in the Beginning
"Nearly one billion people today call the Americas home, inhabiting territories that stretch from the wide expanses of Canada and the United States, down through Mexico and Central America, and south through the varied landscapes of South America to Chile -- from sparsely populated regions to some of the most crowded cities on the planet. And yet, as recently as 16,000 years ago, there may not have been anyone in these lands at all. Who were the earliest Americans, and how and when did they get here? These are questions that have long fascinated archaeologists and the public alike. As with all scientific endeavors, uncovering the story of how and when people arrived in the Americas will require an accumulation of evidence and data, and will long continue to be subject to revision. Here, then, is where the research has led so far:"

What Did US Spy Satellites See in Ukraine?

Exclusive: The U.S. media's Ukraine bias has been obvious, siding with the Kiev regime and bashing ethnic Russian rebels and Russia's President Putin. But now -- with the scramble to blame Putin for the Malaysia Airlines shoot-down -- the shoddy journalism has grown truly dangerous, says Robert Parry.
"In the heat of the U.S. media's latest war hysteria -- rushing to pin blame for the crash of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet on Russia's President Vladimir Putin -- there is the same absence of professional skepticism that has marked similar stampedes on Iraq, Syria and elsewhere -- with key questions not being asked or answered."

An Insider's View of Nixon's 'Treason'
July 5, 2014
"Special Report: A recently released oral history by one of President Nixon's secretive operatives sheds new light on perhaps Nixon's darkest crime, the sabotaging of Vietnam peace talks so he could win the 1968 election, writes Robert Parry."
"...a million more Vietnamese were estimated to have died along with an additional 20,763 U.S. dead and 111,230 wounded. The war also bitterly divided the United States, often turning parents against their own children."

Former NASA Chief Scientist:
"We're Effectively Taking a Sledgehammer to the Climate System"
"'You really have to work to not believe it,' Dr. Waleed Abdalati says of anthropomorphic climate disruption (ACD, also known as climate change). He should know: More than 20 years ago, Abdalati began observing ACD firsthand in Greenland, as a scientist working on his doctoral thesis, for which he created an algorithm used to remotely detect changes in the spatial extent of the Greenland ice sheet experiencing melt each year."
"Abdalati, previously NASA's chief scientist,is now an associate professor of geography, director of the Earth Science and Observation Center, and a fellow of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the University of Colorado in Boulder. His research interests are in the use of satellite and airborne remote sensing techniques, integrated with in situ observations and modeling, to understand how and why the earth's ice cover is changing."

They belong in orange jumpsuits, not on my TV!
"Let me put it plainly: these people do not belong on my television. They belong in prison, for the crimes of theft, torture and murder. They shattered the lives of thousands of American soldiers and millions of Iraqi civilians. They savaged the American economy paying for it all, and several of them got very rich in the process. They should be in orange jumpsuits and fetters, picking mealworms out of their gruel while shuttered in very small, very grim, very inescapable metal rooms."
"I spent the first decade of the 21st century dealing with these blood-sodden <snip>s. Now, it appears, I will spend a chunk of a second decade watching them run around trying desperately to wash that blood from their hands...and the 'news' media, also thoroughly culpable in this ongoing debacle, is all too happy to help them do it."

The Real Villains of the Bergdahl Tale

"Exclusive: The right-wing media is denouncing Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl as a 'deserter' who wasn't worth ransoming from the Taliban, but the real villains are the architects of the disastrous Iraq and Afghan wars who frivolously put the many Bergdahls in harm's way, writes ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern."

Did it ever occur to any of the LP posters spewing vitriol at the Whitehouse and the VA that the reason for the long wait times for treatment have a lot to do with GOP resistance to funding any healthcare system that isn't 100% PRIVATE?
"WASHINGTON -- While some Republicans want the top leadership of the Department of Veterans Affairs replaced, some leading veterans' organizations instead are putting blame for problems with VA health care on the opposition to funding increases by a GOP senator."
