Raw Story reports: Japan’s Olympic female judokas were beaten with bamboo swords and slapped by their coaches, officials said, weeks after a schoolboy suicide sparked debate over corporal punishment.

Is The “UN Agenda 21” Boogey-Man Just a Paper Tiger?

Is The “UN Agenda 21” Boogey-Man Just a Paper Tiger?

A friend asked me to review an article in “The American Thinker” that was critical of what is called the UN “Agenda 21”, a blueprint for “sustainable” communities. Now, we live in a very rural community which has seen quite a battle with farmers and folks living in simple, rough conditions being squeezed out of […]

Joseph Cannon at “Cannonfire” has re-opened a nasty wound that has proven troubling to the Obama administration: Was Anwar al-Awlaki a U.S. deep-cover agent? Or was he possibly killed in a drone strike as a “mop-up operation”, burying evidence related to 911? Or Both? Here he describes the cover story: “Anwar al-Awlaki was an American […]

  • Review: “How Fascism Works” By Jason Stanley
    I really appreciate when an author can boil complex ideas down to easily understandable concepts. “How Fascism Works – The Politics of Us and Them” by Professor Jason Stanley is just such a book. Stanley, a Yale professor has produced an examination of fascism that is reflected in the current state of American affairs. Fascism […]

    People who read this blog have probably noted a change in the material I have reviewed lately. Recent subjects include: permaculture, radicalism in the 1970’s, pre-history revisionism, and yes, Bigfoot. The fact is, I am in a political burn-out mode and needed some breathing room with off-beat subject matter. Rarely do I read fiction, but […]
  • Review: Building A Better World In Your Backyard
    Sitting here by my window, with over ten inches of snow on the ground, is a great time to review this Permaculture book by Paul Wheaton and Shawn Klassen-Koop. I’ve been working on farms and orchards since the 1980’s, but this book is an inspiration to step up my game. Paul Wheaton is a bear […]
  • Review: The Hidden History Of The Human Race
    As the plague season rolls on, my reading has (as a matter of sanity) drifted from hard-core political filth to more esoteric subjects. They have been quite a welcome distraction. For instance, I recently reviewed “Daydream Sunset” by Ron Jacobs, about counterculture in the 1970’s. (All reviews can be found at https://www.covertbookreport.com/ ) Then we […]
  • George And Barbara, A Couple Of Real Turkeys
    Flock of turkeys currently stalking our road *** Many years ago I was the caretaker of a 300-acre farm on the Columbia River in Oregon. The farms in the area were very isolated, with tons of wildlife. I planted corn and millet for game feed and the owners occasionally hunted there. Meanwhile, I grew huge […]
