The Political Film Blog by Joe Giambrone – Why They Assassinated Dr. King
Originally posted on Political Film Blog:
Americans from childhood are fed a diet of bullshit that carries on into adulthood. One of these bullshit myths concerns Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who was assassinated by the US government, and not by a lone gunman, on April 4th of 1968.
Exactly one year to the day prior to that event, April 4th of 1967, Dr. King gave the most political and controversial speech of his life. Lashing out at the war in Vietnam, the mass murder, billions squandered, the imperialist machinations of the US government, Dr. King essentially signed his own death warrant by stating point blank:
“Their questions hit home, and I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today — my own government. For the sake of those boys, for…

Full Spectrum Dominance – The Song – Vic Sadot
Sound Cloud Song Featured at the Political Film Blog 6-12-13
“Full Spectrum Dominance” is a free song at SoundCloud! Use it now! The term “full spectrum dominance” by the United States was used in papers written by the Project for the New American Century, the neo-con think tank that so many G. W.

NSA insider Edward Snowden exposed US government spies on everyone! Stand with the whistle-blowers against the war criminals, liars, and those who torture for the empire. Defend the Republic and the 4th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States!
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
Star Trek and the War on Terror. Jennifer Epps review of “Star Trek Into the Darkness” in “The Political Film Blog” – After the “Zero Dark Thirty” pro-torture “thriller” hunt-for-a-long-dead-bin-Laden psy war myth movie made with CIA as partner, we need some creativity from Hollywood that deals with the ethical questions of the War on Terror. As Epps points out, who better to do that than Gene Roddenberry’s “Star Trek”? A great read! Let’s put the logic and the love together! Let’s get back to listening to those who blow the whistle on war crimes and other violations of all standards of truth and justice.
