If you don't speak up you accept what is happening. This site was born out of the mainstream media's inability to cover the news. I am just an American cititzen trying to spread the word in the era of FCC consolidation, post 9/11 Patriot Act hysteria, hackable voting machines and war without end. I rant and post news items I perceive to be relevant to our current situation.
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

Project for a New American Century
It's good to revisit the Project for the New American Century(PNAC) every so often. Especially their manifesto, Rebuilding America's Defenses, to remind ourselves of what this administration and their cronies vision is for our nation. PNAC has and always will be about maintaining the United Sates as the only "superpower" in the world.
In their statement of principles they state their aims:
Our aim is to remind Americans of these lessons and to draw their consequences for today. Here are four consequences:Look over the names at the bottom of that document. A now current and former Vice President. The current VP's chief of staff. The President's brother. The current Sec. of Defense and his assistant. Many more idealogues as well. These are the infamous Neoconservatives or neocons. Their latest screed, Letter to Congress on Increasing U.S. Ground Forces, is their call for more forces for their plan of global hegemony. I have always compared PNAC and their manifesto to Mein Kempf. I'm not saying that these people are comparable to Hitler, what I am saying is that just like Hitler they never tried to hide their true intentions. Everything that is happening today is telegraphed in their writings. My advice to everyone is to download a copy of Rebuilding America's Defenses and do a search in the document for the words "pearl harbor" and see what you get. Then ask yourself after reading that sentence, would we be in the situation we are in today if the new Pearl Harbor hadn't happened?
we need to increase defense spending significantly if we are to carry out our global responsibilities today and modernize our armed forces for the future;
we need to strengthen our ties to democratic allies and to challenge regimes hostile to our interests and values;
we need to promote the cause of political and economic freedom abroad;
we need to accept responsibility for America's unique role in preserving and extending an international order friendly to our security, our prosperity, and our principles.
Such a Reaganite policy of military strength and moral clarity may not be fashionable today. But it is necessary if the United States is to build on the successes of this past century and to ensure our security and our greatness in the next.
