#SFTC Statement on Ukrainian Crisis

We here at #SFTC decry war in any form and therefore in response to the Russian Federation invasion of the Ukraine we urge President Zelenski to surrender and step down. National sovereignty is not worth nuclear attack from a security council member. Molotov cocktails will not protect anyone and this is not a movie about the Alamo. We also urge ... Read More »

Reckoning of the Hacker Martyr

It’s been over a week since the announcement that Julian Assange will be extradited to the US to be charged for espionage against a country he doesn’t have citizenship in. Assange is being indicted under The Espionage Act but the charges rely on conspiracy the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). Originally used to prove collusion between organized crime ... Read More »

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. The term comes from a military rooted initiative justifying environmental action as a national security threat. This language is considered paradigmatic because ... Read More »

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 ...

Defund VA Police

Activist veteran organizations need to look at VA Police. More than half of minority vets are Black. This also means that the defunding of the police is just as important at the Veterans Administration than on the street. Not only are the majority of veterans harmless but the majority are elderly. The VA has its own Karens. Staff is left ... Read More »

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 »

Watch: Oliver Stone’s Ukraine on Fire

Oliver Stone is a paragon of film activism. Former Marine radicalized by The JFK assassination. Stone won his first academy award in 1978 and since then he’s been a leader in films showing the horrors of war and the corruptions of power. His most recent film has received the acclaim of being taken down from YouTube. While he is left, ... Read More »

PTSD & Psilocybin

Our publication is late to the party on this subject. There was a groundbreaking study conducted for the first time at Veterans Affairs last year and many veterans organizations are advocating for hallucinogenic mushrooms as a PTSD cure. Notice I didn’t say therapy because the research is showing repair on damaged neurons is possible. What I can offer here is ... 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. Netflix feature: Outside the Wire, starring Anthony Mackie of Notorious fame, is a dystopian morality screenplay about the dangers of autonomous drones. ... Read More »

Opinion: Door-to-Door Jab

emple_of_vaccination_Berkley_Gloucester.

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 »
