The Humane Obligation of Rebellion, or…Extinction Rebellion to World Rebellion!

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

The world war of Democracy against its people is now official.
On Oct 20, 2019, Chilean president Sebastian Pinera publicly admitted the singular capitalist threat implicitly and silently embraced by virtually all politicians across our embattled Earth: Pinera formally declared war on his people. Said this corporatist salesman of the draconian and ever-expanding horrors of corporatist austerity- better known as greed:
“We are at war against a powerful enemy, who is willing to use violence without any limits.”
Then, Pinera had his army unload their weaponry on the non-violent protesters; attempting to kill the dreams of freedom by these impoverished Chilean people who had reached the limits of their human tolerance for this oppression. As a natural reaction, a million Chileans hit the streets to raise their middle fingers at Pinera and all he and his puppet masters stand for. Then they did it again. They continue to do so this day.
Pinera’s self-serving lie, however, had already been recently translated into English by another corporate lackey also no longer possessed of proper human conscience: disgraced former UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who, while departing No.10 for Brussels with her ever reddening barbed tail thus tucked between her bowed and knee scabbed legs, declared to the world:
“Populism will be the death of the Conservative party!”
In a democracy?!

New Ecological Disaster…Right Over Your Head.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Sixty-two years ago on Oct 4, 1957, the first space pollution entered the earth’s atmosphere from Russia’s Sputnik spacecraft. After decades of profitable degradation of our terrestrial environment by governments and corporations, the astral environment is cause for serious concern.
Seen a shooting start lately? If so, it is likely due to one of the approximately 5,000 active or deceased satellites, or 750,000 other pieces of debris big enough to be tracked by NASA coming back to earth at over 18,000 miles per hour.
This pollution goes on with impunity and without regulation or the cost of any clean-up right. For decades scientists have called attention to the space debris problem flying above our heads. Two Earth orbits, LEO (low-earth orbit: 1,200 miles up) and GEO (geostationary orbit-22,000 miles up),

A View to a Kill- The Police Killing of Evan Kwik (a true story)

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

One. Two. Three. Four uniformed police passed my window… moving silently, even paced, side-by-side, thirty feet from where I sit. The four black from head to toe, locked and loaded, black gloved fingers on triggers, staring from under black helmets straight through the lenses of high powered black scopes down the barrels of black automatic rifles pressed tightly to the shoulder pads of their matching flack jackets.

America’s authoritarian machine was in full force. On my street. Moving fast.

In moments our quaint four-block area of coastal north San Diego County would be sealed off. In our troubled times cops do as they please. When violating Constitutional protections they don’t like being seen. This scene, fiction? No. My street. America.

Cover, in the form of a small army, was coming. Full speed.

A View to a Kill.(PART TWO): Slipping Into Darkness.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

With one more gargantuan push I heave my ballerina-like hulk through the clustered thicket of towering bamboo, and over a flimsy webbed-wire fence that was more than doing its job well. Spilling ass over tea kettle into the Jan’s backyard I clamor up, dust myself off, helping her over the offending fence. We creep into her house through the aluminum and glass sliding back door. Running to the front windows Jan draws the drapes. We peer out.

 

The waning afternoon sun is already casting shadows. Suddenly, a huge all-black military vehicle, giant tires, machine-gun and gunner on the roof, infests our entire view. It thunders to a stop no more than fifteen yards in front of us.

 

An MRAP.

 

The turret gunner twirled, fixing a target on the front door of the hide-out. Six more tactical police, head to toe in olive drab,... Read More

A View to a Kill:(PART THREE):The Message: No Need for Handcuffs.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

After crawling about the back yard and both sides of the house, I had all avenues down pat. So, when the north side gate crashed immediately followed by multiple swirls of piercing white flashlights spot beams,  I knew my flowery nest was about to be tested.

 

” He’s not in the house”, said a third cop, joining the two in the center of the back yard lawn, spot beams going in all directions. Enveloped into the surrounding black night I could not easily see these black wraiths from my dark cave, except for  the lights flashing off their face shields.

 

With nowhere to go all three circled about confusingly flashing their lights around the yard, walking ever closer to my bush. Five feet away one beam crossed directly over my face and I could clearly see the cops face shield look right at me through the space in the big green... Read More

A View to a Kill (PART FOUR): Bullets of Sunshine.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Regardless, the denouement of tonight’s final act wound down slowly. The threat that had been Evan Kwik was over. That did not mean the citizens could go home. There was still a message being sent.

 

The crime scene once again became a hub of activity. Shortly one of the ambulances that had been stationed at the end of the street pulled up next to the front lawn. The sad machinations of the coroner arriving, many very official looking cops in coats and ties, or white shirts with badges, prowling about the house and the yard, huddled, talking in small groups of three or four.

 

The scene continued for more than an hour. Then,  on a rolling ambulance stretcher they brought out, all wrapped in a bright yellow tarp, a sarcophagus. The body of Evan Kwik.

 

My lack of a sweater, or an escape route, had my teeth chattering. I... Read More

A View to a Kill (PART FIVE): Epitaph

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

A truck was coming, high beams piercing my shuttered eye lids. Police.

 

So, I got up and moved to the side. The early-morning freeze just letting up, dew settling on the leaves and on my shoulders. There was no time for going home. I made a U-turn and bee-lined back towards the police line.

 

I told the first cop who stopped me that I needed to speak to his supervisor which pissed him off. That was the point. From the supervisor I insisted on his press liaison. Thus, it was revealed that the press conference was at 10:30 AM at San Diego County police headquarters.

 

Four hours away. I would be there.

 

There were questions to be asked and answers demanded. I was the only one that could. The official police statement was that Evan Kwik shot himself with his shot gun and 9:10 PM. The facts, ie, my eyes and... Read More

Israel’s Guantanamo: Force Feeding for “Life.”

Israel's Guantanamo: Force Feeding for “Life.”
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

 

Israel now has its own Guantanamo prison. Palestinian political prisoners are starving to death while manacled to Tel Aviv prison hospital beds. Will the torture of force feeding be next.

Do not forget; their resistance to this oppression should be the reason for your own.

Two weeks ago a Call to Order came from the prisoners by letter.

Our great beloved Palestinian people, do you accept to have us be an easy bite between the fangs of our merciless jailers?…We are behind bars, spending years of our lives for Palestine, for its liberation and the freedom of its people…

Israel now has its own Guantanamo-esque, grotesque prison system replete with torture, discontinued  human rights, war crimes, and the latest hunger strikes. The realities of American “indefinite detention” have... Read More

The Only Language Israel Understands.

The Only Language Israel Understands.
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Israeli atrocity and imposed misery continues unchecked in Gaza. This summer’s wholesale slaughter did nothing to improve the lives of Palestinians. In Gaza, its much worse.

As explored in last week’s  Press TV article, an examination of the list of crimes committed against the Gaza population, just since the advent of this New Year, shows clearly six obvious conclusions. 1) Horrific Israeli aggression against Gazans continues daily, 2) Israel has no intention of honoring the terms of the August, 2014 cease-fire agreement, 3) at the peace table, neither Israel, Egypt, nor the Palestinian Authority, is actually pursuing peace for Gaza, 4) politicians across the globe continue to submit to Israeli pressure,...

A Rational Reason For Not Voting! (for president)

A Rational Reason For Not Voting For President
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

 These are desperate times for the American voter. Voters must, now, exercise creative thinking regarding this National election cycle.

As Americans prepare themselves to vote for one of the remaining presidential candidates, they do so this election with a sigh of defeated resignation while considering a choice of the “lesser of [three] evils.” However, in making their single reluctant choice  these voters fail to realize that they have still chosen evil. Is it not time that America said, “NOPE” to this failed facade of an election process?

Consider: what if you, the voter, actually had the power to negate the final result of this mandated Hobson’s choice, after election day? What if voters could effectively renew their political opposition to the president-elect before the inauguration?... Read More
