Media Dismisses Castro’s Bin Laden Claim As Far-Fetched Conspiracy
The corporate media wasted little time in seizing upon controversial
Cuban leader Fidel Castro’s comments about Osama bin Laden being
a U.S. spy to deride the claim as a far-fetched conspiracy theory, and

Elites Have Lost The Right to Rule The problem today and the reason why the

an unbiased eye that no matter who the President is they continue
to prop up an elite at the top that has been running things into
the ground for years.
