The USA has been at war almost constantly since World War II. Why? We’re told it’s some kind of crusade to “keep the world safe for democracy.” Today the world is closer to global thermonuclear war than ever. Are you feeling safe and democratic yet?

The US, of course, is not a democracy. It’s an oligarchy. But it ought to try real democracy. At least that’s the contention of retired science professor Moti Nissani, author of the new free online book Eight Billion Cheers for Direct Democracy: Direct Democracy is Humanity’s Last Best and Only Hope. He’ll be on tonight’s live Truth Jihad Radio broadcast, which also features Peter Bahlawanian , the producer of director/writer/editor Mariam Avetisyan’s The Desire to Live, talking abou t the ethnic cleansing of Artsakh, Armenia. Listen live 8 to 10 pm Eastern on Revolution.Radio, Studio A.

Check out the stories E. Michael Jones and I will cover on tomorrow’s False Flag Weekly News, and watch the show (posted around 1 pm Eastern Saturdays) HERE.

And finally, with nuclear hellfire approaching, maybe it’s time to opt for the garden? Check out today’s khutbah “The Fire and the Garden”:

    East Germany will never be safe as long as West Germany exists.

    Better fed than dead or red.

    I heard that on some old movie or something. Not sure it’s relevant, but this old memory just jumped into my brain, and it seemed a shame to waste the reference…

    How anyone can talk about democracy when the following happens every day in the US and Israel. The zionists in occupied land just killed another 10 Palestinians the other day.

    ‘Eight Billion Cheers for Direct Democracy: Direct Democracy is Humanity’s Last Best and Only Hope.’ — Moti Nissani, book title

    According to previous polls, if the U.S. Constitution were put up for a direct-democratic, yes-or-no vote, it would be defeated decisively.

    The Founders were onto something in making their new republic only mildly democratic, with a state-selected Senate and an Electoral College interposed as barriers to direct democracy.

    Amendment XVII swept away the state-selected Senate (and federalism with it) in the Regressive [sic] era. The poorly defined Electoral College is now a fifteen-minutes-of-fame honor conferred upon no-name hacks from the two legacy parties, who exert no independent judgment.

    Thought experiment — hold a direct democratic vote on this question: Shall we nuke the Russians? Are you willing to commit in advance to accepting the outcome?

    ‘Would Ron DeSantis approve this bill [criminalizing antisemitic acts]? — Daniel Schmidt, quoted by Priss Factor

    Gov DeSantis held his first cabinet meeting in Jerusalem.

    Any questions?

    Glad you’re curious about the Qur’an. My collected video sermons are at . The best introductory books are The Study Qur’an by Nasr (text plus intro to the most notable traditional interpretations); Approaching the Qur’an by Michael Sells (featuring a recitation CD – recitation is absolutely central, the word Qur’an means recitation); and The Vision of Islam by Murata and Chittick.
