BRAINS do not grow AUTOMATICALLY. We must feed them the PROPER MIND FOOD!
LIKE THE MEALS OFFERED AT RAT HAUS : http://www.ratical.org/
Mental BROCCOLI, KALE PHILOSOPHIES, leafy green ideas. We should consider nutritious material which will GROW brain cells, strong bones, muscles for our SWORD ARM and smarts to pick our enemies and BLOG against their cruelty.
If your grandkids are to grow up in a decent world with 15 billion people on it, We must 'supplement' our CONSCIOUSNESS FOODS and we do that THRU WEB RESEARCH! CHOWING DOWN ON THE GREAT RESEARCHERS and thinkers is how we ordinary folk get strong and healthy and can spot BLIGHT AND CORRUPTION before it strikes and thusly agitate and activate and demonstrate. We need vitamins to raise a fist. You will better handle the RECESSION and drive off the VULTURES hovering over capitalism, thusly preserving the future of your loved ones in the future wasteland resulting from this perilous decade or two since the G.O.P got hold of the gov.
If you wanna be a lion, hang at the watering hole where the oldtimer lions hang, the real wise men of the tribe. LISTEN TO THEM. Stay away from hyenas, jackylls, hedgehogs, skunks, cobras.. unless you want to make them into meat pies, then fine. http://www.salon.com/news/opinion/glenn_greenwald/
GOV FUNCTIONARIES AND THEIR BOUGHT JOURNALISTS seem to believe that new laws, well intentioned, among them regulations on Wall Street might lead to socialism --- when new laws and upgrades are NEITHER. So Be on the job if they can't be. Stay focused. Go after OLIGARCH ABUSES! Hunt 'em down! That's what THE MELTDOWN WEBSITE is for, to identify every little crook and the cranny he hides in. That is the ticket. If you are all smart and read the BERNIE SANDERS/ RALPH NADER view, the NOAM CHOMSKY VIEW, you can easily rally & make their abuses crimes corruption greed ILLEGAL! THE FIX INDEX SEZ HOW!
Activism is simply the citizen SCREAMING, PICKETING, STRIKING to get a FIX! That's what a HUE AND CRY is for. Gandhi did more with less in India and unseated the Brit Colonizers! We just want to REFORM, not unseat!GOV CAN SHUT DOWN BLOGS that it DOES NOT LIKE, and has... 73,000 of them to be precise! But that was for having BOMB BUILDING INSTRUCTIONS. I know dozens of outrageously radical SITES that are up, have been up for decades which NOBODY SHUTS DOWN. ALL OF MINE ARE A GREAT EXAMPLE! And here are 200 that the ALT RIGHT DECLARES ARE SPILLING THE GOODS from the Wash Post article. PINK ONES ARE VERY FINE.
THE TRUTH IS AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE TODAY, Well, AT THE ABOVE WONDERFUL, 200 SITES.
ANOTHER list of best journalists came from Greg Szymanski who predicted the Wall Street Cheat tricks in 2006, 2 years before CASINO BANKING ruined the world. http://www.luckinlove.com/alchemists.htm
Top Journactivists Greg Palast, Mike Whitney (often seen on CounterPunch) are great on financial issues (Mike saw it all coming from way back as well). Speaking of which co-editors at CP, Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair are top notch. They have streaming radio..and articles: http://www.counterpunch.org/articles/
SITES where the power hitters are found:http://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/expanded-knowledge/websites/
Relatively new Robert Scheer & Chris Hedges' TRUTH DIG site totally ROCKS!!! Chris you all know from his frequent TV appearances. Alan Farago's pieces on Florida. Robert Scheer is peerless. Patrick Cockburn (Alex's cousin) is terrific as is Robert Fisk (both Middle East correspondents who know everyone and everything)
NATURAL NEWS MIKE ADAMS is great. Jesse Ventura is great fun and hard hitting, The Liberterian PREPPERS' DONALD TRUMP. Amy Goodman does an amazing job day in and day out on PBS TV nightly. RADIO TOO. See: DEMOCRACYNOW.ORG. She does podcasting too,
so right now click HERE to hear her celebrity activist guests: http://www.democracynow.org/podcasting and don't underestimate her subtle, wise co-host Juan Gonzalez. (Democracy Now is on PBS stations, in every city, also on radio, nationally.
Then there's John Pilger an investigative journalist and internat'l correspondent. Christopher Booker & Alex Jones - he does more than journalism. He builds a bonfire under your monitor with all the crazy rumors out there. When you've got a good researcher who prints them all, he's the Henry Luce or CONDE NAST of new age progressive journalists, and that's ALEC JONES. Quieter, but more prolific, try JEFF RENSE. at Rense.com
If you were to read every story from just the above writers or surf to every website mentioned in this post, we wouldn't hear from you for a week. However, if you were to scan all the sites mentioned here, and picked out stories that piqued your interest, something profound would happen. You would never trust what you read in your local newspaper or believe what you heard on COMMERCIAL, sponsor-bought TV ever again. You would start to share these ideas, foment RESOLUTION And that is exactly the point of this list. To create that change, to motivate you and your chums to create a living room group. CINDY SHEEHAN did it alone, how much easier in a group!
The World Wide Web is where the genuine information (without commercials, without paying, corporate sponsors,) is today. The mass media have deteriorated into a deceptive and delusional miasma of propaganda pitches designed not to tell the truth about current events, but to spin them in ways that will be profitable to the patricians who own the media outlets and pay for the deceptive advertising that ruin the health and the fortunes of ordinary citizens who are just trying to live their lives in a peaceful and orderly manner. Print and broadcast mass media are the agents of deception and delusion - no exceptions.
FOR THE BEST POPULAR WRITERS and PHILOSOPHERS OF OUR TIME:
Below you will find a list of the archives of the great RESEARCHERS & news columnists of our time, respected JOURNACTIVISTS. And then, there are the ARNOLD TOYNBEE type (Get his books, the 12 volume one not the condensed.) Great Erudite TEACHERS. RK MOORE is one of those. He uses the NEWS to teach from his historical acumen. HIS SITE cyberjournal is a great place to start. You subscribe to his LIST and new articles come roughly twice a month as soon as they're written. Here's one on WHY YOU ARE A SERF and why you tolerate galactic masters.
Ariana Huffington sold her great newspaper. SOLD OUT is what some say. SHERMAN SKOLNIK died but he had so many followers they continue his site, and his old research on the GLOBAL ELITE, the OLIGARCHS, the NWO is premium stuff, never duplicated is still up, and the researchers add new: THE TOP RESEARCHER INTO CONSPIRACY APOCRYPHA? The Sherlock Holmes who tells us the devil is identified from the details: DAVE EMORY
Then there are the BLOGGERS, there are hundreds -- http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/ is a "with it" site.
This WRITER/ RESEARCHER/ POSTER ACTIVIST ^above, TOM FEELEY has an instant TRANSLATION button on his site. Your chums abroad who speak FRENCH or DANISH or Spanish ( a buncha languages) can ALL get TOM's great articles on the MESS IN WASHINGTON DC sinking all the planet's lifestyles, each in their own language. Mr. Tom FEELEY is a top net journalist/activist for 15 yrs.MANY DEATH threats ---which proves he's digging up the RIGHT STUFF
But it's that instant translation button that fascinates me! Can I APPLY FOR ONE? International POSTING. WOW! Say you don't like the gov in HAITI. You can sit in CULVER CITY and FOMENT REVOLUTION! IN FRENCH. Outta sight!
no more colonies
no long waitin'
Get your freedom
CLIMB OUR LADDER
Then there's POLITICAL CRUMBS! Sharp stuff!
WASHINGTON POST picked their favorites: THE BEST BLOGGER LIST. They are researchers, editorialists, follow the news and pre-digest it for you and give their opinion. All have the spirit of the teacher or they wouldn't be online doing this. The BRITS have a great ability to see the truth. Since the days of GB SHAW, there is an active community of progressive outsiders, journalists, newspapers, magazines so visit the TRUTH SEEKER SITE. the SILVER BEAR CAFE is good.
Here I'd add The FOLKSY WISE http://www.buddylogan.com/
http://www.newamericandream.net/ will lead you to valient researchers, activists who bust the phony stories the gov handed you wide open, the ones where they rewrote the ugly, seamy truth of how they did things: assasination, (MFK, JFK, RFK, and many world leaders,) war, murder, profiteering, enslavement, sucking the gold from your teeth and holding you down while their rich, oligarch friends sucked too
Another good one is Jean Hudon's Earth Rainbow Network that presents everything that's not covered by the corporate media and keeps up-to-date too. http://www.earthrainbownetwork.com/ Magnificent!
ALTERNET is the best content-newsletter out there, like WSWS (http://www.wsws.org ) another superb one, both closest to being all plain text and simple HTM so it doesn't jam a browser. I couldn't click on or read Arianna Huff's newspaper, for YEARS it was too cumbersome in the byte dept & wouldn't load. Ditto Raylean, RUMOR MILLS her jammed pages jam and freeze the browser. I have to reboot the PC. Too code-intensive. This ALTERNET one and WSWS one, both go down easy, are high content but low 'jam'. Many of us have older browsers, older Pc's and still run around on Windows 98SE. All the other websites and lists FREEZE, then JAM the browser so it's shredded & you crash out. Forgetabout FLASH PAGES. That won't even load -- so it jams nothing!
OK GO SEE this week's issue of ALTER NET, always superb. And PRO REVOLUTION it is delivered FREE 3 x a week to your email news @ prorev.com is how you reach Sam, the Publisher. He culls best stories from all these sites,
IPS is like that hot liberal leftist news service in the film SALVADOR that Belushi and Woods worked for. Very concerned with human rights, news stories that prove USA is acting exactly like General Rios Mont or the Nazis.
RADICAL ECONOMIC FUTURISM: http://x22report.com/
GREAT MINDS http://fivethirtyeight.com/
Rolling Stone magazine, hands down has the best liberal news reporting on any political subject ...... Wall Street's Big Win by Matt Taibbi is great reading and he's their boy.. Finance reform won't stop the high-risk gambling that wrecked the economy - he says. and Republicans aren't the only ones to blame.. Google Him.
Not everything on this archive is live links! But you can cut paste a link in the 'go box' and just go there, same end. You surf surf surf, learn learn learn.
But caveat emptor. A few are more journalist than activist & MAY BE on somebody's payroll. A few may toadie up to the gov or to corporations especially if you find them working for some newspaper that runs paid ads. The corporate mainstream media for the most part seem to be colluding in a criminal obstruction-of-justice coverup with corrupt government officials who have morphed the United States of America from a relatively functioning democratic republic into a private plunder preserve for the rich where ordinary people are regularly robbed of their hard-earned money and the privileged yet uneducated elite are free to trash the resources of the world's most gifted nation and sell them to the highest bidder.
With the help of corrupt judges and conscienceless politicians, America has become the scourge of the world as it loots country after country at the same time as it deprives its own citizens not only of their basic rights that were once protected by a functioning Constitution, but also of their security, their wealth, and their self-respect as scam after colonial wars, resource plucking, changing the monkey at will, growing narcotics, doing the drug shipping, (selling to rich American kids of course, addicting them.) Running anti-guerillero wars to kill truth speakers in the third world, in general, hook you up with corporations you don't need, products/ credit arrangements banking services and other felonious services and products ranging from microwaves to HMOS, medical care, stuff that you don't really need and which don't work " are foisted on unsuspecting consumers and which take them down poverty road to bankruptcy homelessness, break up of the family and death.
The information contained on these websites will help you see things differently, and more accurately.
Kaminski says of this list "This is the fourth time I've compiled this list. Each time it has expanded and changed slightly. A few sites have dropped off. Many more have been added.This list as meant as a recommendation of where to find valid information not curdled by corporate contempt.
It is not meant to be a complete list, and apologies to all those great sites out there I haven't found yet. I always like getting recommendations and I understand that what I like might not be what you like.
Nevertheless, after a year of surfing every day, these are the sites I've found to be most valuable. I would sincerely urge you to check all of them out at your leisure and support them financially if you are able.
Everything recommended on this list is free (although with some, you can get add-ons that do cost money). I have taken pains not to include any sites of an overtly religious or spiritual nature, being a believer in the following statement: Anytime an adherent of one religion says anything at all about another religion, it is not to be taken seriously because the speaker can't help but be completely biased, and is therefore unreliable.
I have also excluded the categories of economics and the law, because not being an economist or a lawyer, I'm not sure when I'm being bamboozled by fancy rhetoric and references to documents with which I am unfamiliar.

DEMOCRACY NOW, AMY GOODMAN, google her. Subscribe to her feed. Don't miss her radio show, her five nights a week TELEVISION NEWS SHOW out of NEW YORK and listen on your PC DEMOCRACY NOW ORG
One of the best stories you can read off the bat is: questions questions org on THE GATEKEEPERS. Google it. They keep taking it off because it details how many popular leftist websites such as Common Dreams, The Nation, The Progressive, Z magazine, Alternet, and Tom Paine are rumored to be tainted by subterranean connections to the CIA. But it sure must be the kindly liberal spooks of which there are many. Remember, pure researchers went in by the drove. Only a few spy types exist in the Dulles (serving oligarchs,) Casey (gunning for commies) group. Could be that the extreme far left spots signs of middle ground in them and spreads that rumor saying that they write little about that FRAUDULENT 9/11 THING and won't even entertain the notion that the tragedies were generated by forces within the U.S. government, making these publications suspiciously useless in the mind of this Kaminski person. In the case of the NATION that's cuz they are very chi chi in NEW YORK.
