United States world order. We are not free.
An understanding of media representation of corporate governmental agendas and the lies taught in our history classes are a way to keep a society of dumbed-down people who don’t ask questions.
The leaders, the elite, the rich of this country have made sure to keep the wealth contained and not to be distributed to society as a so-called democracy is to do. While trillions spent on war with the tax dollars from the middle and poor class, breaks given to corporations while our wages show no increase in accordance with the rise in costs of living.
This docu-series sheds light on all things wrong and immoral with our country’s government with it’s justifications of atrocities against people across the world.
What would Dr. Martin Luther King do? As debate continues over U.S. plans to launch airstrikes in Syria, we look at the final year of King’s life when he became a fierce critic of U.S. foreign policy and the Vietnam War, calling his government “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today.” DemocracyNow! speaks to public TV and radio broadcaster Tavis Smiley, author of the new book, “Death of a King: The Real Story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Final Year.”
THE TRUTH OF THIS COUNTRY NEEDS TO BE TOLD ON A MASS SCALE. SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, CO-WORKERS AND WHOMEVER IS WILLING TO OPEN THEIR MINDS.

The Palestinian death toll in Gaza has topped 600 as the Israeli siege has entered its third week. Most of those killed are civilians; more than 100 are children. Israel says it has lost 27 soldiers since the ground invasion began last week. Earlier today, Israel confirmed the remains of one of its soldiers presumed to have been killed in Gaza had still not been found. Hamas has said it captured the soldier. Meanwhile, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is due to arrive in Israel to push for a ceasefire. Earlier today, Ban met in Cairo with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Egyptian officials and leaders from the Arab League. We will go to Gaza for more on the crisis after headlines.

R.I.P. to one of our greats ones…
Vincent Harding, the historian, author and civil rights activist died Monday at the age of 82. He was a friend and speechwriter for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and co-wrote King’s famous antiwar address, “Beyond Vietnam.”
Speaking on Democracy Now! in 2008, Vincent Harding talked about the speech:
“King saw the natural connection between what was happening to the poor in the U.S.A., why young men and women were rising up in anger, frustration, desperation, saw that action as deeply related to the attention that the country was paying to the devastation it was doing in Vietnam,” Harding said. “And so, King was actually trying to bring the country together to sense the relationship between its sickness at home to the sickness of its policy overseas.”
