Ireland has leaders.
America has bleeders.
Must see TeeVee right here.
Free Julian Assange!
"On Day One of Julian Assange’s attempt to appeal Britain’s order to extradite him to the United States, his lawyers laid out a timeline that exposed U.S. motives to destroy the journalist who revealed their high-level state crimes."

"It is absurd that journalists are not able to observe what is going on in the most important case for journalism in modern times..."

"This week's episode of Economic Update hosted by Professor Richard Wolff, we will be discussing the continuing decline of US manufacturing; a 29,000 person strike at California State Univ.; the Houthis disrupt Red Sea shipping in move against Israel; and Texas refuses to obey US federal government's rules in struggle over immigration and white supremacy. In addition we have a special Interview with leading economist Prof. Michael Hudson on basic crises facing US capitalism."
"Why does Europe support Israel so much? What does Europe gain from the occupation of Palestine and further escalation across the Middle East? How much of this is Europe following its own interests versus being subservient to US imperial designs in the region, as we’ve seen with Ukraine? Is Europe actually united on this or are there segments of the body politic that disagree with the US and Israel’s imperialist aims in Gaza? Does the EU have any awareness of its own hypocrisy? And are there consequences for those who speak out against the status quo?"
It's been suggested by Zionists that we accept Biblical fairy tales to justify Isreal's "right to exist." Of course by doing so we also learn that one of the first acts of the Jews was to commit genocide against the Canaanites, old habits die hard I guess.
The Bible also includes a fairy tale that women were created by removing a rib from a lonely man who is everyone's great grand pa. Myths may have elements of truth but are generally simply stories that are fictions that help define cultures. Interesting but extraordinarily counterfactual.
Genocidal colonialism is not a unique legacy of European economic expansion, but it can certainly boast some doozies. The United States of American obviously takes the cake, having managed to surpass the slaughter and theft of the failed British Empire, although keeping score should make any sane person throw up before getting to the bottom of hundreds of years of despicable ruling class shenanigans.
"When the pharaohs ruled Egypt and the ancient Greeks built their first cities, a mysterious people called the Canaanites dominated the Near East. Around 4000 years ago, they built cities across the Levant, which includes present-day Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, and part of Syria. Yet the Canaanites left no surviving written records, leaving researchers to piece together their history from secondhand sources.
One of those sources is the Bible's Old Testament, which suggests a grisly end for many Canaanites: After the Israelites' exodus from Egypt, God ordered them to destroy Canaan and its people (though other passages suggest that some Canaanites may have survived). But did that really happen? Archaeological data suggests that Canaanite cities were never destroyed or abandoned. Now, ancient DNA recovered from five Canaanite skeletons suggests that these people survived to contribute their genes to millions of people living today... "
" Fifty years ago, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee took a sledgehammer to the narrative of how the American West was won.
Written by GW alumnus Dee Brown the book details how white Americans, often fueled by lust for land and gold and certain in their Manifest Destiny, destroyed the lives and cultures of Native Americans over three short decades in the late 19th century..."
