Trump can pose as standing up to political correctness. The actual political correctness is how torture is used by war makers to get the tortured "evidence" they want to have a pretext for war and other hideous policies.
Like many angry teenage idiots, I read "Howl" and it turned me into a poet. When I saw it was published by City Lights, I made it my mission to someda...
A top government official with energy industry holdings huddles in secret with oil company executives to work out the details of a potentially lucrative "national energy policy." Later, that same official steers billions of government dollars to his former oil-field services company. What country is this?
Well I've been thinking 'bout all the people we've shot and bombed, and all the dummies we tricked and conned. With a dictator we made so scary, armed with weapons imaginary.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has been leading the peaceful revival of the true Islam for 126 years now and constantly warns the world of the dire consequences of turning away from Godliness and good morals.
More than a week of cacophonous media and political gabble after the shocking Isis attacks on Paris make it clear that US presidential campaigns are no place to look for answers on this shocking and complex episode of new world chaos.
They look similar to everyone else in the audience at the auditorium at Paderborn University. Three, modernly dressed and clean-shaven men. Suddenly, they stand up and start screaming out their hatred against us.
At a time when our country should be uniting behind a sensible comprehensive approach to ISIS, too many elected officials are playing politics with our national security.
We cannot continue to pretend as if these horrid acts are occurring on their own, nor can we shy away from accepting responsibility for the innocent blood that has been shed as a direct result of our actions.

The aftermath of Paris seems likely to be intensified bombing raids in Syria, closed borders, heightened fear-based security and the deletion of "the gray zones of coexistence" across the planet.
Almost exactly five years ago to the day, I concluded a column as follows:...
Sometimes, we think that who we are and what we do doesn't matter to the world. We've heard that if we don't learn from history, we're condemned ...
Isis, notwithstanding President Barack Obama's singularly ill-timed claim of just a few days ago, is decidedly not contained after a year of American air strikes and stop-and-start ground action. Chaos is again in the saddle.
We Are Many, the new documentary by Amir Amirani, and produced by Wael Kabbani, is a chronicle of the single largest global anti-war protest in world history. Febuary 15, 2003, saw the first coordinated world-wide protests against the U.S. invasion of Iraq.
When Hillary Clinton was challenged on her Iraq war vote at last month's Democratic debate, the front-running candidate pointed to President Obama's 2008 selection of herself as Secretary of State as affirmation of his continuing confidence in her judgment on matters of war and peace.
