|JOURNALIST GLEN GREENWALD'S NEW VENTURE|
October 27, 2013
Journalist Glen Greenwald, the reporter who broke all those Edward Snowden based NSA secrets stories for the British newspaper The Guardian, is leaving that paper to roll out a new journalism-based operation that will be engaged in "adversarial" journalism, meaning taking on "the man" wherever he might be.
In this interview he explains that venture in great detail. Click READ MORE to bring up the video player.

|AND A SIGN POINTED THE WAY|
April 08, 2013
At first it started out as a distant glow in the night sky to our ancestors over 300,000 years ago. And then it grew into a vision of awe and wonder.
As it came closer some of our ancestors, by then who had learned to make fire and were conducting what we know now were the earliest signs of religious observances, thought what they were seeing had been sent by the gods.
And what they saw...yes that wondrous light in the night sky is just a page turn away for you to view as well. Click READ MORE to bring up the video.
|WHAT HAPPENED TO THE AMERICAN DREAM?|
March 10, 2013
Perhaps the video on the next page should be required viewing by every high school and college student in America, as well as other Americans who may not realize that the "American dream" is now mostly that: just a pipe dream.
Many Americans have read the news stories over the past decade of how the American dream has all but vanished for millions as "wealth inequality" floods the land.
But it is one thing to read the stories and see a few charts. It is another matter entirely to view a jaw dropping visual on where the wealth of the nation has gone in the past few decades -- a visual so clear that even a 4-year old would understand that we're not in Kansas any more Toto.
The video on the next page - which started going viral in early March 2013 - had, by that date, already been viewed over 3.8 million times.
The video has to do with the distribution of wealth in America, highlighting both ther massive inequality in wealth in America and the difference between our perception of inequality and the actual reality of it. This video will bring this reality into crystal clear focus for many people, perhaps for the first time.
The reality of America in 2013 is most definitely not what many Americans believe it to be.
