101–Afghanistan…

As America’s longest war drags on in Afghanistan, we would do well to take a look at that nation’s history and our involvement. None of this occurred in a vacuum. But before the War for Fun & Profit crowd got deep into their parasitic personal quest for total wealth looting the resources of other peoples, the world used to be a lot more open and friendly place…

HippieTrail-001The first time I traveled to Istanbul, I discovered the great Beatnik-Hippie Trail. As a working journalist from 1969-thru-’73, I ran into literally thousands of youth traveling on the cheap everywhere I went.
Cultural icons of the day inspired a generation to hit the road on a journey of self-discovery. Jack Kerouac published “On the Road” in ’57; beat poet Allen Ginsberg moved to Varanasi, India, in ’62; the Beatles went to India w/the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi; and Cat Stevens — who would become Yusuf Islam — went to Kathmandu. more…

Marco Rubio & The Hispanic-Cuban Vote…

Just over 16% of the population of the United States is Hispanic. Those of Mexican origin number some 12%, Puerto Ricans 2%, Cubans less than 1%, and the remainder are assorted Caribbeans, and Central and South Americans. (Whites are 64%, and Blacks 13%.)

The Real Cuba...

Within this Spanish-speaking mélange, while similar in language and culture, there are significant variations. Relative to voting, conservative or liberal, one would have to comprehend these differences. more…

Prometheus–US vs. Cuba…

When I was 17 (1959), Cuba won its Independence. Cuba was a nation under a brutal dictatorship allied to the US and abetted by corporate and Mafia influence.

I had joined the Army in 1959 and was serving in the 101st Airborne Division. We were designated and trained as the STRAC-I unit of the US military for instant air transport to anywhere in the world. more…

FDA Cracks Door on LSD…

Born in the summer of ‘42, four years in front of the Baby Boomer generation, has made for an interesting journey. In ’59 at 17 I joined the US Army, 101st Airborne, Ft. Campbell, Kentucky.

With a 9th grade education, I completed my GED in the Army.  When I joined, Eisenhower was president, when I came out, Kennedy. more…

CIA: Conservative, Inept, Air-heads…

In the summer of ‘66, leaving UC Berkeley, Frank J. Rafalko applied to the CIA to become a spy. He spent the next 32 years staying in-the-box with an adagio performance of the requisite noblesse oblige before the altar of gov’t service.

Rafalko is the author of a 4-volume series on the history of counter-intelligence in America. In 2011 he published, MH/CHAOS, The CIA’s Campaign Against the Radical New Left and the Black Panthers (Naval Institute Press). Save your money, they aren’t worth the postage. more…

The CIA & Other Terrorist Orgs…

When I caught my case back in ’89, I was on my way to the airport to catch a flight to Managua. I was working on an investigation involving the bombing of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, some 7 weeks earlier.

When the OIC informed me of the initial charge, I was actually relieved. Little did I know that a year later I’d find myself in a federal trial for cocaine conspiracy.

Cocaine? Hell, I can beat that, I remember thinking. I had quit doing all drugs back around ’73. And I had quit any “business” with them by ’83. Nevertheless, I was convicted and got a 25-year sentence. more…

9/11, Bin Laden, Bush & Company…

When 9/11 occurred, I was working in a prison factory at FCI Jesup, Georgia. After lunch, as I was returning to the factory, 3 lieutenants stopped me and I was locked down in the hole for the next 50 days incommunicado. Never charged or accused of anything, no explanations…

(Click image to enlarge...)

By the time I got to hear of what occurred, the conspiracy theories were also running rampant…confusing the issues more than illuminating them. I suppose those who profit from 9/11 kind of like it that way…keeps the focus off themselves.

Some believe that the jets that hit the Towers were remotely guided. That the plane wreckage outside of the Pentagon was dropped there by a C-130. That United Flight 93 that went down in Pennsylvania was shot down by a US missile.

Given the power grab by the White House to enact significant martial law (Patriot Act) over America, and foment wars of retribution and profit throughout the Middle and Near East, it’s no wonder people will believe these irrationalities. more…

Trials & Tribulations (3)…

(NOTE: In the first of this 3-part series concerning my case and charges, I spoke briefly of my arrest by SEMCO (SouthEast Michigan Criminal Org task-force) in Detroit, February 11th, 1989, and the year leading up to it. In the second article, I reference the two-week trial by jury in August of 1990.

Nick Medvecky 2011…

Certain commentators have remarked on my admission of being involved in the drug business while also denying guilt.  Circa 1983, when the CIA and its contractors popularized crack on the West Coast to finance the White House Contra War, most of us on the left soon got out of that business.

Crack cocaine* was devastating to the black and poor communities; there was no longer any political justification for including cocaine in our fund-raising and certain leadership made the decision to forbid further Movement involvement in that trade.

By the time 1989 rolled around, we had been out of that business over 5-yrs.  This conspiracy case involves the gov’t (failing to entrap me with their informant) inserting me into a conspiracy of which I was never a member.  I make no other claims of “innocence.” more…

CIA Terrorist Acquitted…

The wonder is that Luis Posada was ever charged with anything…  Posada was acquitted at trial in Texas last week.

Cubana Airlines DC-8...

The US Dept of “Justice” effectively conspired with Posada’s defense by only charging him with lying to US Immigration authorities.  It would have been extremely embarrassing should Posada have decided to “talk”; he’s the main slug in USG terrorism against Cuba. more…

LUIS POSADA: America’s Osama bin Laden…

Another trial in Texas is about to commence—no doubt with the same laughable result.  Last week  Tom DeLay was sentenced to three yrs for public corruption.  I doubt he’ll ever serve a day.  The CIA’s arch-terrorist, Luis Posada Carriles, is scheduled for trial today (Jan. 17th) in a Houston federal court for perjury to an immigration judge.

The face of terror...

Posada has a vast history of terrorist bombings, and even the destruction of a civilian airliner.  But the US doesn’t consider them to be crimes given that Luis was acting under CIA orders and/or in conjunction with their anti-Cuba pathology.

Posada was tailor-made for the CIA.  Not having their own hit teams (they borrow them from the Special Forces, the Mafia, or other nations), they recruit others to do their dirty work.

Posada is one of those psychopathic killers (DSM-IV) that conservative and neo-liberal corporatists in gov’t love, or at least tolerate as necessary in their pursuit of power and wealth.  more…
