Medea Benjamin, the co-founder of Code Pink, sits down with Dennis Trainor, Jr. of Acronym TV on the eve of the largest Climate march in history to discuss the climate justice. ""If you care about the planet, you care about people, workers, immigrants, and you care about whether we are destroying the planet whether by polluting or by polluting through war, says Benjamin, who went on to describe the founding of Code Pink as
Our hysteria is usually obvious in retrospect, whether the freak-out is over witches, labor unions, or communists. Hysteria is not always so easy to perceive as it happens or, in this case, as it is happening right now with ISIS-centric Islamophobia running rampant around the nation's terror-drenched reptilian brain.
As gruesome as the Islamic Front's videotaped beheadings are, there is ambiguity over whether the U.S. government's death-by-drone is any less horrific, with some victims crawling about with severed limbs and others just collateral damage, a moral dilemma addressed by ex-FBI official Coleen Rowley.
Russian gas supplies to Slovakia dropped by 50 percent in the past day, according to Slovakia's government. The report has raised concerns over a potential disruption of gas flows to Europe as winter approaches. Already, Ukraine is preparing for a winter without crucial heating gas, as it tries to negotiate a temporary deal with Russia and the EU.

Although we now appreciate that birds evolved from a branch of the dinosaur family tree, a crucial adaptation for flight has continued to puzzle evolutionary biologists. During the millions of years that elapsed, wrists went from straight to bent and hyperflexible, allowing birds to fold their wings neatly against their bodies when not flying. A resolution to this impasse is now provided by an exciting new study.
What is the war with ISIS all about? The most direct -- and truest -- answer could be found in a short clip from an old film, made more than 30 years ago, in a scene set in the midst of a conflict now an entire century in the past. But the answer given then is most assuredly true now.
Because of the years of transparent lies emanating from Washington, many Americans already believe that the importation of ebola is part of the one percent's plan to destroy the rest of us so that they have the country to themselves. This is what comes of a government and a media that serves only the One Percent and that inflicts endless lies and disinformation on the rest of us.
I've come to the difficult but unavoidable conclusion, based on the evidence of repeated regime change "failures" - as they seem to any sane person - that what Obama and the neo-cons really want is to break the Middle East.
Instead of using ISIS's mocking use of orange jumpsuits as a pretext to continue to withhold information about US torture programs in Iraq and elsewhere, the United States should urgently confront its own barbarity in a courageous projection of democratic values.
The sudden reversion of Washington to a 'war on terror' pretext for intervention in Syria has confused western audiences. For three years they watched 'humanitarian intervention' stories, which poured contempt on the Syrian...
And costs could rise to as much as $1.8 billion a month if the U.S. military presence grows to 25,000 ground troops, as some have suggested, said the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessment (CSBA).
