I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

WAR MOVES NEVER END


  • I am writing this from the new moon base that has been established by private corporations who want to take control of resource extraction.  In addition they want to set up bases on the moon to control the "Earth-moon gravity well" that would allow them to decide who can get on and off the Earth.  I was a stowaway on a private corporate rocket that was charging the 1% the incredible price of $750 million per seat.  I'm going to be putting up some protest signs and trying to write a story about what the 1% do when they get to the moon.  Should be interesting - wish me luck.  Hopefully I can catch a ride back to Earth without any hassles.  A Colorado-based private corporation has announced their plan to ferry the rich to the moon.  Global Network board member Lynda Williams, a physics teacher from California, has some great comments in the article published by the Denver Post announcing the plan.  You can see the whole story here
  • Over 3,000 US troops have secretly returned to Iraq via Kuwait for missions pertaining to the recent developments in Syria and northern Iraq, Press TV reports. The US troops have quietly entered Iraq in multiple stages and are mostly stationed at Balad military garrison in Salahuddin province and al-Asad air base in al-Anbar province. Reports say the troops include US Army officers and almost 17,000 more are set to return to Iraq via the same route. All US troops had left Iraq by the end of 2011, after nine years of occupation, as required by a 2008 bilateral security agreement between the two countries.
  •  The U.S. aircraft carrier “Dwight D Eisenhower” has arrived off the shores of Syria. The multipurpose nuclear attack carrier is leading the naval assault group which has arrived in the eastern Mediterranean. On board the ship are 70 fighter-bombers and a total 8,000 US servicemen. The U.S.S. Eisenhower joined the amphibious assault helicopter carrier Iwo Jima, which has been in the area for almost two weeks. In all there are now 17 American warships off the Syrian coast.
