Kreml wrote, “If you think of it in a historical context, consider what is going on with our relationship to Russia in contrast to what Nixon did with China. Nixon visited China to separate that nation from our chief rival, the Russians, albeit that they were both of the communist faith. Why can’t Obama see that his hostility to Russia, and his siding with Turkey, Qatar, the Israelis, etc. directly contradicts the logic of Nixon? Now, the principal rival is China. And yet Obama has done nothing but destroy the trust that a potential ally, Russia, may have granted to us. This rookie is really hurting us.”

Every summer, those of us interested in “greening” the state of Texas come together to socialize with like-minded people, learn about Green activities around the state, and, importantly, make decisions about the rules and issue positions of the party–decisions that will influence the course of this movement in our state.

Cornel West: ‘We’ve got to think seriously of third-party candidates, third formations, third parties’
From Chris Hedges’ column this week at Truthdig:
“We have got to attempt to tell the truth, and that truth is painful,” [Professor Cornel West] says. “It is a truth that is against the thick lies of the mainstream. In telling that truth we become so maladjusted to the prevailing injustice that the Democratic Party, more and more, is not just milquetoast and spineless, as it was before, but thoroughly complicitous with some of the worst things in the American empire. I don’t think in good conscience I could tell anybody to vote for Obama. If it turns out in the end that we have a crypto-fascist movement and the only thing standing between us and fascism is Barack Obama, then we have to put our foot on the brake. But we’ve got to think seriously of third-party candidates, third formations, third parties.”
Taken from The Epoch Times
Boxun News, a Chinese-language Web site based outside China, reported that an unnamed expert has claimed that there was a nuclear explosion near the epicenter of the Sichuan earthquake, based on witness reports and the discovery of concrete rubble believed to have come from an underground military installation. The news of this nuclear explosion has raised questions about the cause of the earthquake.
Now, for all I know, Boxun News and/or The Epoch Times are not reliable. I just don’t know, but I do plan to keep an eye peeled for more on the story, and I’d appreciate it if you folks did too.
