Emerging Viruses

Emerging Viruses - AIDS & Ebola: : Nature, Accident or Intentional?
by Dr. Leonard Horowitz

Health professionals and those involved in infectious disease research will find Emerging Viruses startling: Harvard researcher Horowitz's studies gather evidence to conclude that AIDS and the Ebola viruses evolved during cancer virus experiments in which monkeys were infected with viral genes from other animals. Certain to spark controversy, this provides quite a different view of virus mutations and evolution.

THE LAST GRADUATION The Rise and Fall of College Programs in Prison (Video)

Among the reforms that followed the 1971 uprising at Attica, prison college programs proved to be amazingly effective tools in turning inmates' lives around. In New York State, the recidivism rate for prison college graduates was only 11 percent, as contrasted to nearly 60 percent for the general prison population.
In the early 1990's, director Barbara Zahm worked as an instructor in a prison college program. She was "extremely inspired by the level of commitment, growth and transformation" she witnessed among her students. When the 1995 National Crime Bill killed the program she felt it "imperative to document the tragic events."
The Last Graduation frankly explores the issues from the advent of higher education in prison to the last graduation from the Marist College program at New York's Greenhaven Prison in 1995. Prisoners, former prisoners, educators and corrections officials tell their own stories of struggle, triumph and ultimate defeat at the hands of the Contract with America of the 104th Congress. more...

Breaking the Demopublican Monopoly

BREAKING THE DEMOPUBLICAN MONOPOLY How to Unify the Political Right with a Third Party that Can Win

We are taught in school that the strength of the American political system lies in the fact that we have a "two-party process." This is akin to teaching that babies come from storks. It is a fairy tale we spin out to avoid messy details of reality we prefer not to face.
The reality is that America is now a one-party state. The Democratic and Republican parties have become nothing but two divisions of the same party -- the Central Leviathan Party. Both divisions are lap dogs for the special interests. No matter who wins, we always get more spending, more taxes, more inflation, more bureaucracies, more wars, and LESS FREEDOM. more...

Invasion of the Mind Snatchers

More and more Americans today are coming to understand the terrible truth about our Federal Government — that it seeks to dominate us as citizens, to mold us into a society of dutiful Stepford Wives totally beholden to the wishes of elite politicians, bureaucrats and bankers. MORE ...

Contrarians and the Keynesian Myth

There is a strange incongruity, observable throughout the intellectual history of man, that never ceases to amaze me. Why is it in the field of ideas that dramatic new visions of truth are so often met with vehement opposition from a society's intellectuals -- the very men of the mind who are most dedicated to the pursuit and demonstration of truth? How can the intellectuals of today's era — so acutely aware of humanity's bigoted resistance in the past to Galileo, Semmelweis, Pasteur, and other radical discoverers of history — succumb to the same blind obstinacy in face of the new truths confronting them?

Neo-Conned Congressman Ron Paul addresses the US House of Representatives
July 10, 2003.

The modern-day limited-government movement has been co-opted. The conservatives have failed in their effort to shrink the size of government. There has not been, nor will there soon be, a conservative revolution in Washington. Party control of the federal government has changed, but the inexorable growth in the size and scope of government has continued unabated. The liberal arguments for limited government in personal affairs and foreign military adventurism were never seriously considered as part of this revolution.

The Billy Wayne Sinclair Story - This blistering memoir of a reformed killer still incarcerated after more than 35 years, points to deep inequities in the correctional system in this county.  This section features book reviews in The New York Times and Publisher's Weekly. Both newspapers praised "A life In The Balance" for its realistic view of life behind bars.


Excellant film review from Patrick Crusade member, Christy. Comments by Candy and Sherry as well. A must see.

Look what reviewers are saying about "Tainting Evidence"

July 1, 2004

Fictional series. What if there were a solution to war and genocide? What if a secret society sent back to 1906 two lovers, one a gorgeous but headstrong warrior, the other a pacifistic professor of history, and gave them the incredible wealth and weapons necessary to create a peaceful alternate universe--one that never experienced the horrors of World War, the Holocaust, and the other atrocities of the twentieth century.

Nomenclature of Assassination Cabal
by William Torbitt

Official Secrets
by Richard Breitman

Review by Dorothy Cole: The book's subtitle reads "What the Nazis Planned, What the British and Americans Knew." Breitman sets out to prove the unprovable: that Allied governments knew about the events of the Holocaust and didn't do enough to prevent what was happening. It's a circular exercise. The facts can be more or less convincing, depending on the reader's own prior opinion. I've always felt that the U.S. and British governments could and should have done more, so the facts here convince me. If I were less inclined to this belief, I'm not sure the facts here — exhaustive as they are — would change my mind. Like they say, hindsight is 20/20.
