The murder (officially a suicide) of Marine Colonel James E. Sabow and other Marines are tied to the use of El Toro’s assets to ferry weapons and supplies to the Contra rebel faction in Nicaragua and cocaine into the U.S. to fund an undeclared war in Nicaragua.

(SALEM) BETRAYAL, written by Robert O’Dowd and Tim King, is the tragic story of toxic chemical exposure of Marines at Marine Corps Air Station El Toro and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, the transport of cocaine into the US on CIA proprietary aircraft into El Toro in a convert operation to support an undeclared war in Nicaragua, the murders those who were a threat to blow the whistle on the illegal narcotrafficking and the blotched government cover-up.

(SAN FRANCISCO) What if you had a movie about a television host and producer asked by the CIA to assassinate a despot, a movie generally hated by the critics. I am talking, of course, about a movie much like Sony’s “The Interview.”
As a marketing ploy, the producer decides to generate a little controversy about the film by staging a hacking incident whereby emails are “leaked” painting Hollywood executives in a poor light, posting protected movie scripts online for public viewing, and threatening terrorist attacks at theaters across America.
“We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it ‘bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East’. – Harold Pinter
Gary G. Kohls, MD for Global News Centre
(DULUTH) British playwright Harold Pinter won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005. His powerful acceptance speech exposed the United States for its fascist, imperialist policies since World War II. His speech (delivered three years before he died in 2008) was an important glimpse into – and a reasonable summary of — the innumerable documentable US imperialistic crimes that have been secretly facilitated by our multinational corporations, our national security apparatus, our military leaders, our wealthy elites and the craven politicians who are beholden to those four realities that have shaped American foreign policy over the past 60 years.

(NEWBURGH, Indiana) 2015 will be over almost quicker than you can say Happy New Year! Just look how fast 2014 sped by us all. Time rarely feels as if it’s standing still unless we are waiting on something to happen. Time only drags when we need something to happen like a cure for a disease, a job to open or a relative to come home from the Middle East. When time drags we make the mistake of wishing it away.

The new mayor, the first Democrat to be elected in New York for twenty years, represents a sharp turn from the close alliance between his predecessors, Rudolf Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg, and law enforcement.

(WASHINGTON DC) The killings of two police officers in New York City has focused attention upon the anti-police rhetoric which, in the view of many, helped to create an atmosphere in which such an action could take place.
The New York gunman, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, wrote on social media that he intended to kill cops and was angry about the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, who were killed by police officers in Ferguson, Missouri and New York.

Every Tamil in the island has his/her choice of how they should be governed like the Sinhalese have. 2015 could be a year of great change for Sri Lankan Tamils…
Article by Dr C P Thiagarajah
(MANAAR) Uthayan newspaper reported that Mannar Catholic Bishop Rev Rajappu Joseph in his Christmas night mass had stated that what the country needed was a President who would be sympathetic or supportive of the political aspirations of the Tamils. We could infer from this sermon that a Tamil cannot be a president in the near future and that Tamils have to depend on the good sympathies of a Sinhala president. With all my 30 years government service in Sinhala areas I have my serious doubts that such a Sinhala president will ever be found for another fifty years. The two main contestants in the forth-coming election in Jan 2015 are unsympathetic to Tamil problems and any solutions. Their manifesto simply exposes this fact. The manifesto are Sinhala/Buddhist centric. They are fighting for family dominations and wealth creation for the Sinhalese only.
The current Cuban government considers the U.S. presence in Guantánamo to be illegal and the Cuban-American Treaty to have been procured by the threat of force in violation of international law.

(SAN FRANCISCO) President Obama’s move to normalize relations with Cuba deserves applause. Normalization, however, will not be complete until the U.S. ends its economic embargo and returns Guantánamo Bay to Cuba.
Normalization, as announced by President Obama includes, among other things, establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba, expansion of travel to Cuba, raising remittance levels from $500 to $2,000, expanding commercial exports/sales from the U.S. to Cuba, allow U.S. citizens to import additional goods from Cuba, U.S. credit and debit cards will be permitted to be used by travelers to Cuba, initiating efforts to increase Cubans’ access to communications, and U.S. review of Cuba’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism.
It is shocking to me that so many health care providers and nearly all cardiologists would ever prescribe these medications for any patient. Heart disease patients are not developing heart disease due to a statin-deficiency syndrome. Perhaps these health care providers should start doing what doctors were taught to do: Search for the underlying cause of the illness and address that.
Dr. David Brownstein Holistic Family Medicine
Statins are the most profitable medications in the history of Big Pharma. They are promoted as the go-to medications to prevent/treat heart disease. A recent study found nearly 100% of men and 62% of women aged 66-75 should take a statin medication even if their cholesterol level is normal. (1)
Most importantly, we call on the Prime Minister to exercise his leadership and political will to establish an inclusive consultative committee to find solutions to these intractable problems that have been allowed to fester for too long.

(PETALING JAYA) Deeply concerned over developments regarding race relations, Islam and extremist behaviour in Malaysia, a group of 25 prominent Malays have called for a rational dialogue on the position of Islam in a constitutional democracy.
“Given the impact of such vitriolic rhetoric on race relations and political stability of this country, we feel it is incumbent on us to take a public position,” said Datuk Noor Farida Ariffin, former Malaysian Ambassador to the Netherlands, in a statement on Sunday issued on behalf of the 25 signatories.
Ashraf Ezzat’s new ebook cover art – soon on Kindle stores
This is not a misleading title. The author not only means every word of it but will also substantiate his claim with evidence-based findings. In the exposition he promises to reveal one of the biggest acts of deception in history hidden behind the myth of Egyptian Pharaohs. And yes, the whole story of Egypt ever being ruled by so called Pharaohs is nothing but a pure myth and a blatant deception.
Dr. Ashraf Ezzat Global News Centre
(ALEXANDRIA) Get ready to think the unthinkable and imagine the never thought imaginable, for if Egypt knew no Pharaohs then it goes without saying that Egypt never Knew Moses either. And if Moses never set foot in Egypt, then The Exodus’ road map into the Promised Land has to be redrawn.
Terrence Kimble says harassment he has experienced includes being called a “nigger” and also derogatory comments directed toward his dead mother.

(SALEM) Terrence Kimble’s wrongful conviction for Sex Abuse in Oregon may stand out as one of the state’s most egregious and amazing miscarriages of justice. I have written about it extensively. Kimble is serving a 19-year sentence for a crime that he did not commit. He says he continues to experience a level of racial harassment from Oregon prison officials that underscores the very reason many observers believe he was convicted: the fact that he is Black.
