Many fans of China Rising Radio Sinoland send Jeff J. Brown recommended websites and articles to look at. He too is scouring the non-mainstream information realm for his research, book writing and journalism. These same people and others ask him what he is checking out. Herewith is a list of what he has looked at and researched recently. It will be in first person, contain between 10-15 items, be continuously refreshed and kept near the top of the column page. The newest entry will be at the bottom of the list…
I just finished reading the revolutionary novel, “Aurora”, by Andre Vltchek. Highly recommended:
I also just finished reading “1421” and “1434”. Proof that the Chinese were sailing all over the world, way before any Europeans, is incontrovertible, with physical C14-dated and DNA evidence all over the Americas, plus 15c-16c European documentation. World history needs to be truthfully rewritten and of course Westerners are trying to deny it like hell. The hollow myths of superiority and exceptionalism must not die:
In 44 Days, I wrote that the greatest chance for world and nuclear war falls on Israel. As we watch the horrific genocide of the Palestinian people, it is important to really understand the truthful, non-propaganda, non-fake news of why and how it is. The following four-part documentary by Al-Jazeera is must watching for any concerned world citizen. Part Five is not essential, but is an excellent discussion and debate by knowledgeable people about Al-Nakba. The whole project totally changed my outlook on the situation there, so take the challenge.
The standard rate that the United States pays to create fake opposition protests on the streets of any country that does not lick its boots is around €20/day: Hong Kong, Ukraine, Venezuela and countless other places, going back decades. The vast majority of Venezuelans support their Bolivarian government’s socialist revolution and the continued nationalization of their petrochemical sector, which Uncle Sam wants to steal. But, you would not know that in the CIA propaganda Western press. What you see is a minority of wealthy, turncoat locals organizing these US-paid, rabble-rousing traitors, while President Maduro is demonized around the world. American taxpayers’ hard earned money, hard at work, while millions are suffering back home. Ah, the glories of global empire!
China’s huge, global summit this weekend will continue to change world history. It will be mostly censored and belittled in the Western propaganda mainstream media. Poor Americans and their satrap Europeans getting poorer by the day. When all you have is an imperial hammer, all you see are nails to beat down into submission. I will be interviewing Dr. Godfree Roberts after the summit, to talk about what happened in Beijing. Stay tuned.
Note: here is that interview:
This year is the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, a cataclysmic movement that changed the world forever. Not that you would know it in the US and much of the West, where this history has been violently and intentionally obliterated from public consciousness and widely censored in the media and education. TeleSUR does some outstanding historical journalism. This is a nice montage on one of humanity’s most important sociopolitical events.
TeleSUR continues to impress me. Here is an excellent analysis of what is really going on in Venezuela: the full bore funded overthrow of its popular government, by the United States. Carefully absorb its observations about Western propaganda. CNN-BBC-PBS-NYT-Wapo not.
As a senior editor and the China correspondent for The Greanville Post (TGP), I am honored to have gotten Mr. John R. Hall on the team. He is a terrific writer and keen observer of the human condition. Check out all his work on TGP and Dissident Voice.
Recently, I also invited John onto my China Rising Radio Sinoland show. He has quite a life story to tell:
One of the great satirists on our time, John Rachel is a prolific author and journalist. Like all writers of the genre, John makes us laugh at the absurdities of the human condition as well as lament the seeming hopelessness of our trajectory. However, deep inside, John is always the optimist. I have read several of his books, both fiction and nonfiction. All highly recommended.
Ramin Mazaheri has written an outstanding article about Iran that should be must reading for the ill- and uninformed. I learned a lot. You will too.
I had the privilege of interviewing Ramin recently, on China Rising Radio Sinoland. Listen to it here:
Unfortunately, I found out about this particular war crime, among many, after “China Rising” and “China Is Communist Dammit” went to press. However, in “China Rising”, I fully exposed the West’s many other crimes against humanity via the use of biological and chemical weapons and in “China Is Communist Dammit”, America’s grotesque genocide of North Koreans is fully exposed.
I have also be very active about reporting on the Korean peninsula. Learn how the world really works:
Jeff’s journalism about Korea
I just finished reading the classic account by Anna Louise Strong, “When Serfs Stood up in Tibet – from Serfdom to Socialism”. I frequently use the “half true rule”. Even if her mortifying description of pre-revolutionary Tibet and the positive changes thereafter are only half true, why in reason’s name would any Tibetan want to go back to such a hellish existence under the Dalai Lama, or refuse what happened afterwards? Only if you are a member of the dictatorial aristocracy, which is now exiled in India.
I actually bought the print book, but it is available online for free:
I just started reading Frantz Fanon’s anti-imperial classic, “The Wretched of the Earth”. I am sure it will give me much food for thought. It is in print to order at any bookstore, and translated from the original French into a number of languages:
Jean-Paul Sartre wrote a scathing, anti-Western preface, which is available online. Let’s just say that J.P. was on fire when he wrote it!
It’s hard to find someone who really catches the American zeitgeist, like Linh Dinh. I’m so impressed that I just ordered his book, “Postcards from the End of America”, which I will pick up this summer, when we go back to the US:
There are two others in the same league as Mr. Dinh: John R. Hall and John Rachel. They both have articles posted above.
We read about communist countries, like China, Cuba and North Korea. But India, with popular voting, one state, Kerala, has been governed by the Communist Party of India (CPI) for decades. The results are in. Kerala has the highest literacy rate, life expectancy and Human Development Index in the country, Kerala. Here is an article that explains it all about Kerala’s:
