Trump politicized “Voice of America” for his benefit. Biden promptly undid that corruption and supported whistleblowers..

June 4, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

For decades one of the U.S.’s ways of propagandizing the rest of the world on behalf of the U.S.’s political agenda has been the “Voice of America.”  While basically pro-U.S., VOA did allow other views.  In fact, in November 1974, a month after I quit my job in a Washington State welfare office because the welfare system is abusive in many ways to poor people, VOA interviewed me for a worldwide broadcast they would make soon.  I was invited to explain the economic injustices of the U.S.’s welfare system.  Apparently, the VOA did have some fair-mindedness as they sought to […]

Info about abortion rights in U.S. and other nations

May 30, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Who is more advanced? 29 Muslim-majority states will have more liberal abortion laws than much of America if Roe falls Only 18 of 47 Muslim-majority countries have abortion laws today as restrictive as that in Texas…which is the model for a raft of laws to be enacted as soon as Roe is struck down:  https://www.nationofchange.org/2022/05/05/who-is-more-advanced-29-muslim-majority-states-will-have-more-liberal-abortion-laws-than-much-of-america-if-roe-falls/     This information came from Ralph Nader’s Public Citizen organization (www.citizen.org) on May 5, 2022: Since 1994, 59 countries have expanded access to abortion for their citizens. While just three — Poland, Nicaragua, and El Salvador — have restricted women’s right to choose. The […]

Ukraine: While U.S. politicians, media and NATO push for war, people need to understand this context

April 22, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Regarding the current Ukraine crisis, nearly all U.S. politicians and news media are aggressively promoting the narrowly nationalistic U.S.-centric foreign policy grounded in arrogance and hubris that refuses to understand other nations’ needs and concerns and refuses to understand the context in which the crisis emerged. The U.S. has done this over and over again in recent decades.  This led to disastrous wars in Vietnam, Central America, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and other countries.  Now our politicians and mainstream media are pushing the U.S. into war with Russia.  This could end in a nuclear war that kills billions of people and […]

URGENT! REJECT the calls for a “no-fly zone”!!! It would lead to NUCLEAR WAR!!!

March 28, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Many politicians and news media people are calling for a “no-fly zone” over Ukraine.  This would obligate the U.S. to shoot down Russian military planes.  This would be AN ACT OF WAR!!! RUSSIA WOULD CERTAINLY RETALIATE! Both nations have thousands of nuclear weapons! This would almost certainly ESCALATE INTO A NUCLEAR WAR that would KILL BILLIONS OF PEOPLE and DESTROY HUMAN CIVILIZATION!!! We must CONVINCE the American people — and the news media — and the politicians to REJECT any thought of a “no-fly zone”!!!   Here are a few articles about this:   Veterans for Peace Warns Biden That […]

Biden aggressively promotes MORE OIL DRILLING.

March 3, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

I kept seeing many articles reporting on President Biden’s promotion of MORE DRILLING FOR OIL AND GAS.  Some people have said that he was ordered by a court to do that, but that claim was false.  Here are some articles:     Biden OK’d 34% More Oil, Gas Permits Than Trump: The Biden administration approved 3,557 permits for oil and gas drilling on public lands in its first year; in Trump’s first year the number was 2,658. Nearly 2,000 of the new permits are in New Mexico.  “Biden’s runaway drilling approvals are a spectacular failure of climate leadership,” said the Center’s […]

The New Nuclear Arms Race Is Happening in Oak Ridge, Tennessee

February 28, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The March 2022 episode of “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” provides a lot of information about nuclear weapons that hardly any Americans know.  Even people who know a lot about nuclear weapons will learn new information from watching this interview.  We really need to understand this existentially crucial information! Glen interviewed our expert guest, Ralph Hutchison, the Coordinator of the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance (OREPA, www.orepa.org).  OREPA is a very savvy non-profit organization in Tennessee that is working hard to stop the newly escalating nuclear arms race.  They are located near the site that has produced 100% of the highly enriched […]

The U.S.’s “democracy” is seriously weakening!

January 17, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The U.S. likes to think of itself as the best democracy in the world — and a beacon and role model for other nations. American politicians like to brag about this. But ACTUALLY, the U.S.’s democracy has been SERIOUSLY WEAKENING for a number of years — and in several ways. Our nation suffers many serious problems, but extremely rich people and big businesses profit from those problems (pollution, low wages, racial injustices, an out-of-control and constantly escalating war machine, elections that are dominated by Big Money, news media that favor the Establishment, Republicans’ many deliberate actions to cheat in elections […]

We need PEACE instead of provoking war with Russia.

November 7, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

As soon as the Russian Revolution occurred in 1917, the U.S. treated that nation as an enemy.  Although the Soviet Union was an ally with the U.S. in opposing Nazi Germany, when Japan was ready to surrender in 1945, the U.S. unnecessarily dropped two atomic bombs on Japan — partly in order to intimidate the Soviet Union.  For many decades from 1945 until the USSR collapsed in 1991, the U.S. kept treating that nation as an enemy with whom we were locked in a Cold War that was ready at any moment to destroy the entire world with nuclear weapons.  […]

Michael Klare’s smart article below lays out the context for the dangerous escalation of a new nuclear arms race: Dividing the World Into Opposing Camps Is the Road to Armageddon Washington aims to recast NATO in the image of the US military, with its focus on “great power competition” and a renewed arms race with Russia and China.

After IPCC’s alarming report demanding sharp reductions, Biden urged OPEC to INCREASE DRILLING FOR OIL!!!

September 9, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The article with the headline and the link below said this part-way through the article, because Biden’s Trumpian stupidity was not the article’s main point.  The article said Biden urged OPEC to DRILL MORE OIL because he was worried that a reduced supply of oil would increase oil prices and hurt the economic “recovery.” The article’s main point is that instead of taking honest, effective actions to sharply reduce climate chaos, fossil fuel companies are promoting high-tech gimmicks that are not really effective but will fool the public and governments – and keep enriching their own profits – while delaying […]

Weaponizing space is VERY DANGEROUS!

August 29, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The “national security” baloney that has caused many stupid, endless wars — and the extremely dangerous nuclear weapons arms race since the 1940s — is escalating into space, regardless of the 1967 treaty that prohibits militarizing space. Trump — and now Biden — have been making Planet Earth more dangerous.   Karl Grossman, one of the world’s top experts on space weapons, wrote this powerful June 16, 2021, article on escalating U.S. warfare in space”  “New Space Force laboratory opens: A breakdown on space warfare ‘autonomy.’”  It includes this quotation:  “The U.S. imperial war project, now marching headlong into the […]

The U.S. must stop arming dictators and human rights abusers

August 29, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The U.S. has a very long history of arming dictators and human rights abusers. This was already going on long before the U.S. and Britain overthrew Iran’s democracy and installed the extremely brutal Shah of Iran in 1953.  The U.S. armed that brutal dictator throughout the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.  After the Shah’s demise, the U.S. armed Iraq’s Saddam Hussein so he could fight his war against Iran.  Then the U.S. violently overthrew him and armed many sides in the chaos that arose directly because of the U.S.’s war there.  In recent years the U.S. has armed MANY different factions […]

The Perils of an “America First” Climate Policy

June 13, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Trump kept pulling the U.S. out of treaties and international collaboration.  He wanted an egocentric “America First” policy that actually interfered with solving global problems. Now President Biden is doing somewhat better on some issues, but he appointed a great many war-hawks to powerful positions, and he keeps taking his advice to pursue militarism and nationalism instead of collaborating well as one nation among nearly 200 on Planet Earth.  A number of knowledgeable persons have said that Biden’s foreign policy is pretty much the same as Trump’s President Biden has promised action to protect the climate, but in order to […]
