Importance of including truth emergency in the progressive media reform movement

30-01-2010 21:22

Almost 1,000 scientific professionals in the fields of architecture, engineering, and physics have now concluded that the official explanation for the collapse of the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings is implausible according to laws of physics.

This conclusion should be a part of our political discourse given how much of the policy in the past eight years has been based on assumptions about 9/11.

In a free society, this type of inquiry would be a matter of civic principle, not national ridicule, which it what it has largely been when it has not been totally ignored by corporate media.

Clinton Rejects Russia’s Call for New Europe Security Treaties:Typical propagand

29-01-2010 17:07

"Clinton said that a “cornerstone” of European security is the “sovereignty and territorial integrity of all states.” She repeated U.S. calls on Russia to honor the terms of a cease-fire agreement that ended the August 2008 Russia-Georgia war and the administration’s refusal to recognize Russia’s claims of independence for the breakaway Georgian regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia." Neither Cliton or the current author bother to recall for us that it was Russia that was the victum of a surprise attack from Georgia, a US "partner." I wonder why?

29-01-2010 11:28

Recently the Gloucester Arms has been subjected to protests by anti racists due the landlord John Coyne's decision to allow ultra right wing racists the Jobbik Party hold meetings in the pub. This was not a random decision. Coyne [who claims now to be an Irish nationalist] has boards outside the pub offering British troops 20% discount having bought a former IRA pub and banning all the customers. But...Camden police have banned reggae in Camden Town & threatened nightclubs....

Fascist pub Gloucester Arms Camden - any news? Is nazi John Coyne still there?

28-01-2010 18:47

The Gloucester Arms was targeted by anarchists and anti racists for hosting the neo nazi Jobbik Party meetings in the pub and some sort of spat between the IRA and the UDA, rows with local council tenants, residents campaigns, mothers etc.
Does anyone have any latest news as to whether he has in fact been evicted or just warned by the police and council over noise, nonces and nazis in the pub?
