Iran: Background of U.S. conflicts — Recent context — Updates about the “Iran Nuclear Deal” — Petitions to sign, etc.

March 16, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Many Americans are confused about what has been happening with Iran. American politicians and news media have seriously misled the public and planted false narratives in our heads. Today I clearly summarized the relevant history and context from the past few decades and put it in the document I’m posting below. This document provides background and context for U.S. relations with Iran – including information about the “Iran Nuclear Deal” (the JCPOA).  It includes links so you can urge the U.S. government to support peace with Iran.

Nuclear Weapons: History, Science and the Public: TV program and more information

March 15, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The April 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series helps you understand how nuclear weapons came into existence – and the science behind them – and the public’s reactions to learning about the hard realities. From ancient times, people have wondered how the natural world works.  People have also wondered how they could use the power of the natural world to kill their enemies.  Modern science and engineering allowed people to increase their knowledge – and increase their ability to kill. Since the 1940s nuclear weapons have been part of our reality.  Most people try to avoid thinking about […]

See these photos of oil train derailments since 2013 in Canada and U.S. Although not currently in the news, oil trains are dangerous.  See the link here for a collection of photos since 2013: A Timeline of Oil Train Derailments In Pictures Since 2013, North America has seen at least 21 oil train accidents—and counting https://www.sightline.org/2021/02/26/a-timeline-of-oil-train-derailments-in-pictures/?utm_source=Sightline+Newsletters+II&utm_campaign=30fe327c1c-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_11_22_09_02_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_3e1b0f73ac-30fe327c1c-296416429   Another huge oil tanker train derailed in Washington State in late December 2020.

Take these urgent actions in early March 2021

March 8, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Most of us receive many e-mails urging us to take online actions to tell a governmental or business entity what to do. These are especially urgent now in early March 2021 about several different issues.   #1: Tell Congress to pass a special tax on extremely rich people. Senator Elizabeth Warren and Representative Pramila Jayapal just announced their bold plan to pass a wealth tax. They’re going to need our help to pass it. Billionaires made more than $900 billion during the pandemic. Warren’s plan would create a two percent tax on assets over $50 million dollars, which would generate $2.75 […]

COVID-19’s origin: New evidence points to lab experiments instead of the official explanation

March 8, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Ever since the COVID-19 crisis occurred, I have been reading information about its origin.  The official story claimed it arose in an animal-to-human transmission at a meat market or from bats.  More recent scientific evidence has been debunking the official story and explaining how it arose from a scientific lab that was doing risky experiments and lacked adequate safety.  Here are some articles:   #1: This informative article was published in Politico, a mainstream political periodical.  It reports that in 2018, American diplomats warned of risky Coronavirus experiments in a Wuhan Lab, but the Trump regime failed to listen. https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2021/03/08/josh-rogin-chaos-under-heaven-wuhan-lab-book-excerpt-474322 […]

Support Senator Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax.

March 7, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

This information came from www.americansfortaxfairness.org:   Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax is here! And it’s exactly what we need to start creating jobs and rebuilding our communities ― pulling us out of this pandemic-caused recession. The Ultra-Millionaire Tax Act ― introduced this week by Senator Warren as well as Representatives Pramila Jayapal and Brendan Boyle ― would place a two-cent tax on every dollar of wealth between $50 million and $1 billion, and a three-cent tax on every dollar of wealth over $1 billion. It’ll raise $3 trillion over 10 years from the richest 0.05% and allow us to invest in […]

Tell Congress NOT to spend $100 BILLION for more nuclear missiles!
