Some of my earliest political activities were in the early 1960s associated with the U.S. Civil Rights movement and the Anti-Apartheid movement against the Apartheid regime of South Africa. This included participation in demonstrations while I was still in the U.S. Army. It was also the time I became first aware of the writings and […]

PART I U.S. ORIGINS, DEVELOPMENT, INSPIRATIONS AND COVER-UPS OF WMDS Evil is faceless strangers, living in distant neighborhood. Evil has a wholesome, hometown face, with merry eyes and an open smile. Evil walks among us, wearing a mask which looks like all our faces.

(Translated from Urdu in “The Reluctant Fundamentalist” a film by Mira Nair) When your dreams all turn heavy as stone, Say what you have to say. Your history holds you tight as bone, Say what you have to say. In a silence so strong that it makes you its own, Stand up!, Speak out! Let […]

OH WHAT A TANGLED WEB WE WEAVE WHEN FIRST WE PRACTICE TO DECEIVE (Sir Walter Scott) MEGA STORY IS A POTENTIAL “MEGA-STORY” The MEGA story indeed is a “mega-story” if allowed to surface and to be properly investigated. It shows the potential costs of treachery and lies at the highest levels of the U.S. Government and […]

“Sir Jeffrey Amherst noted for his deliberate use of smallpox-infected blankets as a weapon against Indians. Amherst and his British lieutenants were a marked change from the French commanders at the forts throughout the Old Northwest and Canada. He made no effort to build goodwill with Indian peoples. He had no respect for Indian leaders, treated […]

Mr. Snowden’s revelations only the tip of a much bigger and looming iceberg. For many of us who are published scholar-activists against imperialism, fascism and all other such oppressive “isms” that are often, in reality, so much like each other, these latest revelations of Mr. Snowden are nothing new nor are they particularly more disturbing […]

Imperial Mythologies It is time to strip away some of the mythology and outright sycophancy vis-a-vis military service in the U.S. imperial war machine. Yes, some heroic actions are undertaken, some compassion shown and sacrifices made by U.S. forces despite the often ugly intentions of those who sent them into battle. But the U.S. military is also […]

Reviewed by Prof. James M. Craven/Omahkohkiaaiipooyii – This book gives some clear and telling examples and lessons of individuals (often seemingly decent until tested) participating in and fundamental to, their own repression as well as the repression of others; along with the building and maintenance of the tyrannical fascist orders and systems repressing them. Where […]

It is often said that American Indians, indeed all Indigenous Peoples, are like the proverbial and overworked “Canary in the Mine” acting as a warning of dangerous conditions like carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide in the mine. The classic Indian Residential Schools of Canada and the U.S. were prototypes for the kinds and levels of indoctrination […]

Sisyphus and power complete for publication: FULL SPECTRA—NOT SPECTRUM—DOMINANCE The U.S. Imperium and its Neocon, Neoliberal and bi-partisan theoretician-apologists like to use the term “full-spectrum dominance”. Actually, for what they really mean, they should really refer to “full-spectra dominance” because what they are really referring to and intend is the quest for dominance over all the different types of spectra or ranges of dominance requisite for the continuance and expanded reproduction of U.S. Imperialism globally. They seek dominance—not parity or security—over differing types of dynamic (shifting) spectra or ranges (plural) as suggested by their research funding and deployments of: … The language the theoreticians of the U.S. Imperium use is always the language of authority and dominance. It is the language of grandiosity and hubris embodied in notions of some kind of “Manifest Destiny” as their self-and-summarily-asserted “authority” for forms of hegemony they are determined not to allow any other nation or force to even attempt parity let alone achieve dominance. The first of the immigrants and genocidal maniacs into North America, the Pilgrims, were Calvinists and proto-fascists who spoke of creating a “City-on-the-Hill” example for all other societies to emulate.

“The privilege of opening the first trial in history for crimes against the peace of the world imposes a grave responsibility. The wrongs which we seek to condemn and punish have been so calculated, so malignant, and so devastating that civilization cannot tolerate their being ignored because it cannot survive their being repeated.. We must […]

There is a great deal of sensitivity to one of the most notorious of the many Holocausts humankind has suffered: the Nazi Holocaust against Jews, Gypsies and others. Movies like Schindler’s List are a constant reminder of massive suffering that must never be forgotten and historical lessons that must be learned. Most believe that something like the Holocaust of the Nazis against Jews or Gypsies or other victims targeted by the Nazis could never happen here in America or in Canada. Imagine that something like what happened to Jews in Germany happened in America or Canada. Imagine that Jewish children were forced to repeat Christian prayers and were beaten or even murdered if they spoke or prayed in Hebrew or Yiddish and spoke or prayed Jewish prayers.

Each article deals with a flight situation (hanger stories) from which lessons were learned and what those lessons were. In my own case, as a former commercial pilot and as pilot over 40 years, I am here and able to write this partly because of what I learned in some of those articles I read; […]

The following Indictment has been submitted as supporting evidence and argument in several legal cases in Canada, and in several official submissions to high levels of the U.S. Government, without rebuttals of any kind to its content.

It may be Karma Time for Obama in being out promised with promises no sane or honest person could or would make, out demagogued, out bluffed and out postured by Romney. This partly explains: why polls fluctuate so wildly in short periods of time with one allegation of piece of news; why psychopaths, con-men, sociopaths often […]

Nuremberg Trials set precedent in International Law that is binding on all nations despite the hypocrisy in the fact that 380 U.S. Corporations Traded With Nazis throughout WWII The Nazis called the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto Terrorists. —————————————————————————– The privilege of opening the first trial in history for crimes against the peace of the […]

[Editor’s note: This is a comment made by Prof. Craven on the following article pasted below, titled “Why Calling China an “Adversary” Doesn’t Matter” written by Zachary Keck for the Diplomat. The 4th Media believes this comment itself is worthwhile to post for the sake of both many of our Chinese and global readers.] I beg […]

The English Rock Group “Queen” had a song that really would work well as a national anthem for America and Capitalism itself: “I want it all and I want it now.” It celebrates the narcissism, arrogance, smug entitlement, selfishness, myopia, ultra-individualism, instant gratification, and ADD/ADHD-like narrow slices of attention spans that represent so much of […]
