University of Oklahoma Cancels Speech by CIA Agent After Questions Were Raised
Wednesday April 29, 2009
1 comment
By MICHAEL P. WRIGHT In April 2009, the Campus Activities Council (CAC) of the University of Oklahoma had a Facebook site announcing that on May 2 CIA agent Michael Scheuer was scheduled to give a speech on campus. Scheuer was described as "the long-time chief of the Bin Laden tracking center." This is interesting because OU president David Boren, a former U.S. Senator, has many ties to the CIA and is widely known as the mentor and sponsor of George Tenet, who was CIA director when the (...)

STRASBOURG, France — Police are clashing with demonstrators in Strasbourg where the NATO summit is underway. Several hundred protesters in eastern Strasbourg are hurling Molotov cocktails, rocks and bottles as they try to push their way into the city’s centre. Some 100 riot police bearing shields and wearing body armour are responding with tear gas in a bid to break up the melee with the demonstrators, many of whom are clad in black and wearing masks.

Record numbers join anti-Sarkozy protests
By : Paris - Friday March 20, 2009
Record numbers took to the streets of France yesterday in the biggest demonstrations since Nicolas Sarkozy’s election, to protest about his handling of the economic crisis. Unions estimated that more than three million people took part in demonstrations across the country, in the second general strike over the economic crisis in two months. Police put figures at about 1.2 million. With one in three people supporting the protest, it had the highest public backing for a strike in a (...)

Indigenous Activist Splitting-the-Sky Arrested at Bush Demo (+ video)
By : Johnny Canuck - Wednesday March 18, 2009
2 comments
Indigenous activist Splitting-the-Sky was arrested in Calgary yesterday. He was protesting the presence of George Bush. Although both Canadian and domestic law compels Canada to bar or arrest Bush as a "credible" war criminal suspect - the government has thus far shielded Bush from any move to do either. Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper is a staunch neocon and supporter of Bush policies. Splitting the Sky was in the process of instructing Calgary Police as to their obligations (...)

Nato Counter summit in Strasburg
Thursday March 12, 2009
April 3rd and 4th — Strasburg. NATO turns 60. Let’s celebrate. An opportunity to seize, a call to be heard. Counter-summit in Strasburg: not an appointment with the Power, but a meeting with the situation. Civilization knew it was bound to die someday – but only in theory. After several shocks and attacks, it now feels it through all its fibers, all its vital flows. A feeling of death in the democratic air. It is no longer denied, it has become a threat, a pretext for (...)

By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com Today we have so many celebrities who take on social causes; it is almost a given that they will each have some charity or cause that they support. That is good, I suppose, but still there is a clear distinction between being socially conscious and being Woody Guthrie. Woody has been dead almost half a century, and his deeds and exploits have fallen from public memory. Woody wasn’t socially conscious, he was its conscience. In the (...)

The street protests, strikes and riots that have rattled France, Turkey, Greece, Ukraine, Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Bulgaria and Iceland will descend on us. It is only a matter of time.

Icelandic police tear gas protesters

By VALUR GUNNARSSON and JILL LAWLESS REYKJAVIK, Iceland (AP) — Police used tear gas to break up an angry protest outside Iceland’s parliament early Thursday, and two officers were hospitalized after being hit by rocks, the force said. It was the first time the country’s police had used tear gas in more than half a century, and came as demonstrators mount increasingly violent protests against a government they blame for leading once-prosperous Iceland into economic ruin. (...)

By David Glenn Cox I’m too angry to sleep, too weary to hope. I’m too old for optimism and too young to stop fighting. I’d hit someone if only I knew who; I’d march if only I knew where to go. I support the new President and think that he will bring a new vitality to the nation, but my age and anger tells me that vitality is a show business term. That trickle down never reaches us, and political spin is just so much wind passed into our faces. I have seen tax cuts (...)

GAZA: "Operation Cast Lead" Part of a Broader Agenda by Michel Chossudovsky

by Michel Chossudovsky The aerial bombings and the ongoing invasion of Gaza by Israeli ground forces must be analysed in a historical context. Operation "Cast Lead" is a carefully planned undertaking, which is part of a broader military-intelligence agenda first formulated in 2001: "Sources in the defense establishment said Defense Minister Ehud Barak instructed the Israel Defense Forces to prepare for the operation over six months ago, even as Israel was beginning to negotiate a (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
