Why Net Zero is Blah Blah Blah

“I’d like to see the government get out of war altogether and leave the whole field to private individuals.” Joseph Heller No, Greta Thorenburg is not referring to the internet service provider when she refers to NET Zero.

Exclusive: USS Ronald Reagan UAP Encounter

This article is a departure from our usual content. Most of the founders of #SFTC were the original crew members of the USS Ronald Reagan CVN 76. I was a plank owner meaning I was in the shipyard while my least favorite president’s namesake was constructed. There was a strike that delayed construction. After she was commissioned we did all ...

Vanessa Guillen: MST Martyr?

Vanessa Guillen was bludgeoned with a hammer, on base, in the armory, her remains were removed in a box. Several people saw, now deceased due to suicide, Aaron Robinson struggling with the box the night Vanessa disappeared. Guillen was a private and Robinson was a specialist. They both worked in the armory but in the army that small rank difference means a lot, and many, (if not most) exploit that. Read More »

Prison Abolition in the Age of Coronavirus

In the Prison Abolition Movement, it is a well-known fact that Police have a shared history with Slave Catching. There was a need to capture runaway slaves in metropolitan areas before that there was no need for police. Most of the lynchings of Jim Crow South were well attended and represented by police and how enforcement is distributed today is reflection of that history. Too many police and prison guards are former military to ignore the link to the prison industrial complex. Read More »

Radicalisation

On the history of radicalization in the Western context. It can be argued that Saul of Tarsus is the first Lone Wolf radical.  A Lone Wolf that emerges remotely of a movement. Radical because of a desperation and immediacy to change. After Paul there is a line of Christian radicals. But having had little to do with the original movement ... Read More »

Fake News

In 2012 I wrote an entry about Julian Assange and Russia Today (RT). At the time, observing activism in New York City and online, I saw something dubious going on with activists use of social media stemming from Russia and even Iran as Press TV. Well meaning people were lending themselves to foreign intelligence and thus saturating their good intentions. ... Read More »

Movie Review: Outside the Wire (Stop Killer Robots)

Propaganda is subtle. Especially American propaganda written by the best and the brightest to glamorize the military industrial complex with an air of dystopian criticism. This movie makes it clear that its brand of dystopia is propaganda asset.

We need a new different way to vaccinate people that doesn’t put the vulnerable at risk. There has already been a detrimental shift to vaccinate people by age (65 and over) thus ignoring anyone at-risk under that age. Read More »

Watch: The War at Home

We are big supporters of Scott Noble and cannot recommend his films enough. Our recommendation would be to start at the beginning of his catalog available on his website www.metanoia-films.org so you can truly see how his documentary style has found a place of its own. When We interviewed him 10 years ago he told us a story about how ... Read More »

George Floyd Had COVID

Crispus Attucks was the first American to die in the revolutionary war. It is debated whether he was a freeman or a runaway slave. Adding nuance to what motivated early colonists. Many revolutionaries were abolitionists; the marriage with the slave-owning South came later. George Floyd like Crispus Attucks was a catalyst that hopefully will usher a revolution in policing.

War is for Suckers & Losers

In the closing scene of The Godfather Michael Corleone announces that he’s enlisted in the Marines and his brother says to him: “…only saps risk their lives for strangers.” You only die for your family. My conclusion after my enlistment is that war ends when we run out of young men to send to war. Cultures have always pondered as to ... Read More »

Movie Review: Bombshell

Outside of pedigree and nepotism, all that is left is the lewdness associated with shameful means of success. I imagine Roger Ailes was one of the masked men in Kubrick’s last film Eyes Wide Shut — bringing women from the newsroom as a commodity to the sons and daughters of the confederacy behind Venetian masks. The script is pretty standard ... Read More »
