AUDIO: Great Interview by Marianne Barisonek of David Swanson on "War Is A Lie"

Tag: War Is A Lie


David Swanson, author and activist talks about his new book "Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming A More Perfect Union." The host is Marianne Barisonek.

 Swanson talks about how the office of Presidency has acquired more and more power while Congress neglects its duties. He offers ideas on how we the people can rebalance the political structures.

Powers taken by George Bush will become cemented into place during the Obama administration unless Congress takes action. The aberrations of the Bush years will become norms and now is the time to undo the damage.

Many of the abuses committed by the Bush presidency were given legitimacy by the actions of his predecessor, Bill Clinton.

Ethan McCord Needs Your Help

Tag: War Is A Lie

If our movement for peace and justice is to prevail, we must reward those who join it.  When Wikileaks released a video called Collateral Murder earlier this year, one soldier was seen in the video rescuing injured children from a van that had been attacked by a U.S. helicopter.  That soldier, Ethan McCord, spoke out against the incident of murder and the murderous war.  He and another veteran, Josh Stieber, published an open letter of apology to the people of Iraq.

Last summer peace activists were calling Ethan McCord the bravest man alive, and corporate newspapers were calling him a soldier for peace

Now Ethan McCord cannot pay his bills.  The military doesn't even "support the troops" that keep quiet.  There is little chance of it supporting Ethan.  That's our job.

Do you appreciate what Ethan has done to expose the nature of our wars?  Then please contribute directly to him.  Every penny goes straight to Ethan:



Ethan McCord has also exposed more war crimes and even worse war crimes.

This is the kind of truth-telling that our government and our corporate media do not do.  In fact, the government would like to criminalize it, and the corporate media would like to silence it.  Wikileaks is only able to expose information when whistleblowers are willing to leak information or speak out.  They must be rewarded.


Peace on Earth.
