How the US creates "sh*thole" countries by Cynthia McKinney( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donald Trump's purported reference to "Sh*thole Countries" has captured the (outraged) attention of the global community. And while there is some dispute as to whether or not the President uttered those exact words, what is not disputed is that the US President derided certain countries while discussing US immigration policy reform, suggesting that the US should have more immigrants from countries like Norway. How the US Creates Sh*thole Countries seizes this unique moment of global focus on the world's most suffering countries to address some causative factors, and the extent to which their lamentable state is not of their doing. It questions the legitimacy, means and ends of US interventions in their domestic affairs in pursuit of its "interests", which the US then regards as matters of national security. And from there it proceeds to other questions:Why and how does a country become a US target? What socio-economic, political and military policies--overt and covert--does the US undertake to bring the victim country into line? What are the results for the targeted countries? For US citizens, who have little idea what is going on, but are footing the bill? The seasoned analysts contributing to this book come from all walks of life and every shade of the political spectrum. Some have held high positions in government or at the United Nations; some taught or teach at prestigious universities; some are in forced exile because of their political beliefs and the exercise of their Constitutional rights; some have spent time in prison for acting on their beliefs; one of them sacrificed the limbs on his body
The illegal war on Libya( )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2011, former Congresswoman and 2008 Green Party candidate for President, Cynthia McKinney, took a delegation of observers to Libya to monitor NATO's purported humanitarian intervention. Prefaced by Ramsey Clark, this collection of essays includes scholarly and legal analysis, as well as personal accounts by witnesses to the NATO assault on a helpless civilian population it had a UN mandate to protect, and the massive propaganda campaign that made it possible. It responds to the many questions left unanswered by a complicit mainstream media, such as: Why Libya, not Bahrain, Yemen or Egypt? What was life in Libya like under Qadhafi? What is the truth about the so-called "Black Mercenaries"? What was the role of Western NGOs and the International Criminal Court? What about Africom's Plans for Africa? What did it have to do with Liby'a independent central bank, its oil, its plans for an African currency, its efforts to free African states from the coils of the Bretton Woods Institutions? Cynthia McKinney and other contributors to this volume were in Libya during the period of the NATO bombardment of Libyan cities, and were among the few independent voices to report on the tragedy

With interviews from some of today's leading thinkers and source material from the finest documentary film makers of our times Ethos examines and unravels these complex relationships, and offers a solution, a simple but powerful way for you to change this system, through consumer activism

Voices for peace : war, resistance and America's quest for full-spectrum dominance by T. J Coles( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States military doctrine, as proclaimed by the Department of Defense, is to attain "full-spectrum dominance ... in the air, land, maritime and space domains, and information environment ... without effective opposition or prohibitive interference." This is an agenda for global conquest--for an ever-expanding US empire. As America prepares for conflict with Russia and China, wars continue in the Middle East and North Africa, tens of millions are exiled from their homes while many others face famine. But there is not only hope for change in the air; there is also active resistance. People all over the world are challenging the status quo by taking nonviolent action. Voices for Peace features some of the world's leading thinkers, journalists and activists, offering insight, inspiration and solutions to the world's most critical problems--nuclear war, environmental destruction, and refugee flows. In the wealth of material presented here, Kathy Kelly talks about the Afghan Peace Volunteers and Standing Rock protesters in the U.S., calling for global unity. Bruce K. Gagnon's piece on space weapons discusses South Korean activist opposition to American weapons in their country. Brian Terrell challenges the legality of drone warfare and outlines the grassroots links being forged between U.S. and Russian citizens. Noam Chomsky discusses U.S. policies toward Russia and Syria, as well as toward South America, trade, ISIS, and Ukraine. John Pilger talks about the Trump-Obama naval buildup around China, and exposes Britain's "deep state" connections to the Manchester terror attack. Former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney analyzes the Charlie Hebdo attacks and the deep state in recent U.S. history. Ilan Pappé offers an exclusive analysis of Israel's actions to ethnically cleanse Israel of Palestinians. Finally, Robin Ramsay exposes the unconditional support given to the U.S. by successive U.K. governments. Seeking to inform and educate, this penetrating anthology is edited and introduced by author T.J. Coles, who gives a broader framework and context to the individual articles

Ain't nothing like freedom by Cynthia McKinney( Book )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elected six times to the House from the state of Georgia, Cynthia McKinney cut a trail through Congressional deceit like a hot ember through ash. She discovered legislators who passed laws without reading them. Party leaders who colluded across party lines against their constituents' interests. Black-skinned individuals shilling for the white status quo. She excoriated government lassitude over Hurricane Katrina, uncovering dark secrets. She held the only critical Congressional briefing on 9/11, introducing counter- testimony of scholars, investigators, former intelligence agents. As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, she held Rumsfeld to account for malfeasance by military contractors and missing billions in the Pentagon's budget. Then she hammered him on the reasons for the failure of NORAD air defenses on 9/11. She read truth into the Congressional Record, held town halls and hearings, led protests, showed up while others played along to get along, took the side of the people against the will of the Party. And when she got too truth seeking and speaking, the Republicans rigged the Democratic primaries to boot her out, leaving behind a trail of achievements mostly won singlehandedly as a result of her service on the House International Relations, House Agriculture, House Armed Services, and Budget Committees and the Select Committee on Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. But McKinney rose again like a Phoenix, answering the call to run as 2008 Green Party candidate for President, challenging the corrupt two-party stranglehold on American democracy. Then it was on to the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza, to be seized on the high seas and imprisoned in Israel. On to Tripoli, to serve as witness to the NATO terror bombing of Libya. On to Malaysia to serve on the War Crimes Commission ... Often introduced as the Sojourner Truth, the Harriet Tubman of our age, McKinney reflects here on the Biblical figures of Esther, Deborah and Naomi. This is the Cynthia McKinney saga as it stands to date-- what she saw, what she learned, and how she fought for change."--Publisher's website
