Nation That Says It Can’t Afford Medicare for All Has Spent $5.6 Trillion on War Since 9/11

The Costs of War Project at Brown University’s Watson Center says the $5.6 trillion figure—which covers the conflicts in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, and Pakistan from 2001 through 2018—is the equivalent of more than $23,386 per taxpayer.

14 Cutting Edge Tech Firms Funded By The CIA

The CIA has its own investment capital firm called “In-Q-Tel,” and it’s been funding innovative tech firms for years. This is both good news and bad.

RFID Chips and Some Reasons Why We Should Be Worried About Them

This is unknown technology and we are not privy to testing that is done for them. Is there a government agency(ies) that tests these things, or not. Even if there is, and judging by how all of the reasons whistleblowers have shown us that we should meet the government’s representations with precaution, if not actual skepticism, can we trust that we can trust the results of such testing. Remember also that there is a so-called Black Budget in the government. Is it possible this technology falls under that and, if so, what assurance do we have that this will not be used for ill purpose.

14 Times Trump Warned Against Doing What He Just Did in Afghanistan

On the same day millions of Americans were thrilled to witness — and equally distracted by — a total solar eclipse, Donald Trump decided it was time to announce a “dramatically different” foreign policy plan for the U.S. military in Afghanistan.

Is the Media Using the Charlottesville Riots to Incite Civil War?

Is the Media Using the Charlottesville Riots to Incite Civil War?

Fake News: The Intensification of Information Warfare

To disarm fake news, if the public is to have any hope at all, it can only come from a commitment to verifying and sourcing all of the information they receive. The psychological warriors can only have their way with a public who refuses to question their sources of information and demand proof for the claims that are being made by their supposedly neutral sources of news.
