Most Americans Are Confident That Obama Is Better Suited To Save Us From An Alien Invasion Than Romney, The Hulk, Spiderman Or Bat Man
So now that we've gotten healthcare reform and Fast & Furious out of the way, let's move on to invasions from other planets. If, like millions of Americans, you're addicted to Ancient Astronauts and believe we've been visited before-- yes, "they" built the Pyramids, gave us our religions (all of them except, ironically enough, Scientology), killed off the dinosaurs for us, fixed our DNA so

A Giant Fiction: USrael's War on Terror Has Proven To Be Fake In Syria
 The Pentagon loves Jihad in Syria. "Ironic indeed, that the US in particular is backing entirely terrorist forces that thousands of Americans have shed their blood allegedly fighting in the "War on Terror." It appears that Al Qaeda, admittedly a creation of the CIA in the 1980's to draw in and fight Soviets in Afghanistan, is still patronized by the West and used as both a convenient cas

Yesin on China’s Nukes
Phil Karber has placed another story, this time directly associating himself with the discredited claim that China has 3,000 nuclear weapons.  Karber found an essay by General Viktor Yesin (in Russian), a former commander of the Russian Strategic Rocket Forces, and placed it in the Falun Gong-run Epoch Times. Yesin’s essay is full of errors, so let’s start with the easy one.  Yesin claims China i

A New Standard for Oxymoronic Newspeak
If there was an ongoing contest in the art of self-contradicting newspeak, a quote from a U.S. military official during the Vietnam War would be the reigning victor for most of the modern era. In describing the decision to ignore the prospect of civilian casualties and vaporize a Vietnamese village, that unnamed official famously told Peter Arnett of the Associated Press that “it became necessar
Smashing the Spinning Plates
The outcome of the June 17 Greek election—a narrow victory for the conservative New Democracy over the leftist Syriza party, and the prompt formation of a “pro-European” coalition government—predictably unleashed a gigantic sigh of relief all over Europe. The catastrophe was averted, European unity had prevailed, etc. But, in fact, a great opportunity was missed, a unique chance for Europe to fi
