Remembering Rachel Corrie

"We should be inspired by people... who show that human beings can be kind, brave, generous, beautiful, strong-even in the most difficult circumstances." -- Rachel Corrie

Rachel Corrie was a 23-year-old American peace activist from Olympia, Washington, who was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer on 16 March 2003, while undertaking nonviolent direct action to protect the home of a Palestinian family from demolition.

Norther Truth Seeker writes about her here:
Better Late Than Never: Remembering Rachel Corrie - MURDERED 16 Years Ago Standing Up Against Israeli Tyranny!

I made the same mistake NTS made by missing the anniversary because of all the distracting nasty stuff going on these days. We should never forget the heroism of this young lady.

NZ Police “Happened to Be in a Training Session” When Mosque Shooting Began

From thefreethoughtproject.com:
"It took police officers in New Zealand 36 minutes to catch the terrorist who murdered 50 people in two Christchurch mosques last week. Dramatic footage shows that just two officers—only one of whom had a gun—apprehend the suspect after his bloody rampage. We are now learning that this response time would have been longer, but police happened to be conducting a drill nearby practicing for a similar attack."

Sound familiar?

Tucker Carlson apparently not on the pro-AIPAC bandwagon

I was kind of miffed when I noticed a left-wing "Fire Tucker Carlson" campaign trending on Twitter today. Apparently Carlson said some "offensive" things about 10 years ago during a shock jock interview. With so much going on in the world, why focus on this BS? Then I saw this tweet from Syrian Girl:

Venezuela's electric grid attacked

Good thing I get my news from the Internet or I'd never know what was going on in the world. Not a peep about this on CNN.com.

Here's the latest: Electricity Gradually Returns to Venezuelan Capital Caracas
"People in the Venezuelan capital Caracas reported Friday that electricity is being restored gradually in different zones of the city after a sabotage attack against the electric system of the country that took place Thursday evening that was carried out by extremist right-wing sectors in the country, according to the Venezuelan government."

So far, 52 members of Congress have cosponsored H.R. 1004; to prevent any unauthorized military action in Venezuela. Is your representative one of the cosponsors?

There will be a march in D.C. on March 16th to demand the U.S. keeps its #HandsOffVenezuela.
