What’s wrong with the American health care system?

This video, Why Are American Health Care Costs So High? goes a long way toward answering that question.

Alec Baldwin is brilliant in this SNL sketch

911-Need we look again?

This video by David Hooper is the best document I have seen about the events that resulted in the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York on 9-11-2001.

Methodically raising the obvious questions, presenting numerous testimonies, and examining plausible explanations, this video will keep you riveted as much as the best mystery thrillers, and probably lead you, as it did me, to consider the unthinkable about what really happened on that fateful day.

Jon Stewart’s bodacios commentary on US policy on ISIL and the Middle East

Jon Stewart is always good for a few laughs. Like court jesters of old, he has a delightful way of critiquing the actions of the power structure. Watch this:

THE HIDDEN HISTORY CENTER Now Established

John Judge, who recently passed away, was a log-time activist and co-founder of the Coalition on Political Assassinations (COPA). “At the time of his death, John was working on creation of a Hidden History Museum and Research Center in Washington, DC, to educate a new generation about covert operations, and to support the work of investigative journalists and researchers looking into the National Security State and the rise of secrecy, government plans for extra-Constitutional jurisdiction during emergencies, and threats to civil liberties and international relations. Some of his writings can be found at judgeforyourself.org.””

A recent message from Marilyn Tenenoff reports that the Hidden history Center has now been established. Here is Marilyn’s message:

THE HIDDEN HISTORY CENTER IS BORN!

I’m excited to announce that this weekend we will begin moving the John Judge Collection to the new Hidden History Center on the upper level of 105 Rowell Court in Falls Church, VA.  It is a wonderful brightly-lit space (over 1,000 square feet) in an attractive professional center called Old Brickhouse Square, located right on Route 7.

The i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed, and the lease will be officially signed on Friday.

If you can lift boxes, we could use your help at John’s house on Saturday, October 11, between 11 AM and 3 PM.  We need to move about 100 boxes down one level, and to make a pathway in the basement, so egress will be easier for the movers.

There are still more boxes to pack, so we’d be glad to have your help, even if you can’t lift.

On Sunday, we have a team of movers coming to transport the first 450 boxes to our new location.  I believe that represents about 2/3 of John’s collection.  We probably still have another 100-150 boxes to pack.

After the collection is packed and moved, we will begin working on John’s personal belongings.  Please let me know if there is anything that belonged to him that you would like to have as a memento of your friendship with him.

If you are looking for end-of-the-year tax deductions, we can still use contributions to this project.  Make checks payable to Museum of Hidden History, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.  Send them to P.O. Box 772, Washington, DC, 20044.  Or donate through PayPal on our website, http://museumofhiddenhistory.org/.

Thanks so much to all of you for helping to make John’s dream come true!  The work is just beginning!

Love ~ Marilyn

Why political turmoil in Thailand?

Over the past seven years I’ve spent a great amount of time in Thailand, a place I’m very fond of for its culture, climate, friendliness and food. People often ask me about safety and what is behind the political turmoil there? The following report from the Associated Press provides some good insights on that. –t.h.g.
Thailand’s coup: Key questions answered
May 31, 2014 10:33 AM EST

BANGKOK (AP) — Thailand’s army seized power in a May 22 coup, the Southeast Asian nation’s second in eight years. Here, four Associated Press correspondents who have been covering the crisis and the political turmoil leading up to it offer their insight into recent events:

Q: THAILAND IS KNOWN AS THE “LAND OF SMILES.” WHY IS THERE SO MUCH POLITICAL TURMOIL?

Thai society is undergoing major change, and politics over the past decade has in part been a battle between the old royalist ruling class and an ascendant majority based in the north and northeast that has benefited from development and has begun to see itself as a political force.

Much of that struggle has played out around one man — former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, a billionaire tycoon deposed by a 2006 coup who now lives in self-imposed exile to avoid a prison sentence on a corruption conviction. The issue of whether to support or oppose Thaksin and his powerful political machine has divided friends, families and the nation. –more

Burzynski, an incredible story of abusive government

The documentary DVD, Burzynski, (2010) arrived from Netflix a couple days ago and I watched it.
What an amazing account of harassment by the Texas state government and the FDA on behalf of big pharma to protect the vested interests from losing out to a cancer treatment that really works and is non-toxic.

Now that they can no longer deny the efficacy, they are trying to steal Dr. Burzynski’s patents.
A must watch.
