Walking down the streets of Constantinople in the early Middle Ages, you would have immediately felt the energy and prosperity.
Constantinople was one of the wealthiest, most advanced cities in the world, and some historians estimate its population could have been as high as 500,000 people.
Byzantine architecture in Constantinople was world famous, and local artists were producing mosaics that are still regarded as some of the finest ever made.
At this point in history, wealth and power in the world was clearly concentrated in the East.
Europe was nothing more than a plague-infested backwater. Constantinople flourished. And even further to the east, China was sporting some of the most advanced technology in the world.
But times changed.
By the 13th century, the Byzantine Empire was in clear decline. Its borders were shrinking and the empire was at the center of…

This playlist, from which three videos were posted yesterday, may be used as an educational tool for those wishing to get some insight into the real history of “the overthrow” (attempted, not actual), and the subsequent cover-up of what really happened.
Of particular interest is the last video in this series, a 1934 newsreel which tells the story that the Hawaiians wanted to be annexed by the US, how the Queen voluntarily turned her Kingdom over to the US, and how happy the people were to now be part of the “great” USA.
Lie 1… Lie 2… Lie 3… and a few more thrown in for good measure.
Note that in that video you see none of the tears people have shed over the past 121 years, of which there were many, for what happened to their Kingdom, and their Queen.
With countrywide protests having occured across the nation all day, and more planned into the dark of the night, many cities are gearing up for another evening of fear and emotion. For now, the main trouble spots appear to be NYC (Lincoln Tunnel blocked, pepper spray used, multiple protests arounds Union and Times Square), Minneapolis (car ploughs down protesters, violence escalating), Cincinnati (main highway shut down) and Ferguson (2,200 National Guard deployed, multiple protests, multiple arrests). St. Louis just postponed the Thanksgiving Day parade. President Obama’s earlier comments translated appeared to sound like, ‘I condemn the violence but totally understand it’ and Al Sharpton’s earlier analogies to a fight did not help. It appears the American Spring is spreading and while color may have been the catalyst, it appears youth is the dividing point.
This seemed to sum things up…
I think this pretty much says it all… #UnionSquare

I want to ask you to think back over the past few years. Try to remember how many times you have seen organized violence employed on a massive scale. I am going to ask you to reject the media’s claim that it has been ‘spontaneous.’ It hasn’t. It is well known that it was all planned: from Occupy Wall Street to the Arab Spring. All of it was ‘organized’ by violent revolutionaries, and the violence is used as part of their formula for toppling governments. This is because the model works. It was how Russia fell to Lenin, and how Hitler tried to take over Germany — the first time. The idea is, if you can create enough hatred within society, then cause it to just break out into social unrest, then others will ‘stand up’ and the existing government…

The US police in Ferguson, Missouri, have arrested several protesters during a demonstration calling for the indictment of a white officer who shot dead an unarmed African-American teenager in August.
The arrests were made on Thursday afternoon, as the protesters were rallying outside the Ferguson police department in the blistering cold, demanding the criminal indictment of Darren Wilson, who shot 18-year-old Michael Brown on August 9 multiple times.
The protesters were reportedly arrested after they squared off with officers dressed in militarized attire. The arrests were the first in almost a week.
The grand jury has been deliberating for three months to determine if Wilson was at fault for Brown’s shooting. The jury’s ruling will determine whether the white officer is charged with…

A secret society at Yale University, known as the Skull and Bones, in the U.S. has been sued over the remains of an Apache Native American.
Descendants of the Apache chief Geronimo believe that 90 years ago a group of students including George Bush’s grandfather opened their ancestor’s tomb and stole his skull to use in fraternal rituals.
Now Geronimo’s relatives want his body back to give it a proper burial.
“I believe strongly from my heart that his spirit was never released,” Harlyn Geronimo, the chief’s great-grandson, said.
The lawsuit, filed on Tuesday – 100th anniversary of Geronimo’s death, also names U.S. President Barack Obama and defence secretary Robert Gates as defendants because the chief’s remains are supposed to be kept on a U.S. army base.
Geronimo was a prominent Native American leader, who fought against U.S. and Mexican expansion into Apache tribal lands back in 19th century.

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev recently announced that Russia will no longer import GMO products, stating that the nation has enough space, and enough resources to produce organic food.
Russia has been considering joining the long list (and continually growing) of anti-GMO countries for quite some time now. It does so after a group of Russian scientists urged the government to consider at least a 10-year moratorium on GMOs to thoroughly study their influence on human health.
“It is necessary to ban GMOs, to impose moratorium (on) it for 10 years. While GMOs will be prohibited, we can plan experiments, tests, or maybe even new methods…
