Christmas message: If you have faith in God ... how would He expect you to react?
By : Mary MacElveen - Saturday December 24, 2005
30 comments
by Mary MacElveen To all of our readers around this planet I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Happy Hannukah and a Happy Kwanza ... no matter how we express ourselves during this season, it is far more important to do so with love in our hearts. The other day, taking a cab to the market, in conversation with a Jewish cab driver, I asked him his take on how we should express what is in our hearts during this season. He said: "If someone wishes me a Merry (...)

Venezuela’s true patriots ... unlike the cowards who stayed home and griped!
By : Mary MacElveen - Tuesday December 6, 2005
4 comments
by Mary MacElveen With the outcome of the Venezuelan elections now decided President Chavez’ MVR party now holds a convincing majority. No matter what the fevered opposition says, it is still a majority since those who did in fact go to the polls in torrential rains decided which direction Venezuela must democratically take. MVR won 114 out of the 167 seats and this boils down to 68% ... it must mean that Chavez is doing something right if he gained such a majority to push through (...)

Why are they not in front of their cameras calling Bush a butcher?

by Mary MacElveen I first want to thank Mark Parent and LiveJournal.com for bringing this video feed to the attention of many (English Version from Italian TV): US Chemical Weapons Attack on Iraqi Civilians. But before you watch this video which is 27 minutes in length, I want to strongly caution you that what you are about to see is so horrific and if you have children, under no circumstances are they to view this feed. While I have seen graphic photos of the “Bush War” in (...)

URGENT: Stop the Trafficking of Human Sex Slaves
By : Mary MacElveen! - Wednesday November 2, 2005
5 comments
by Mary MacElveen! I just finished watching that movie on Lifetime TV called “Human Trafficking” and it turned my stomach to know how young girls and young boys are trafficked world-wide and even within this country. So we must be their voices and their power to end their slavery where they are worked to death for years as sex slaves. According to this movie the selling of human beings ranks third after the selling of weapons and drugs. Also according to this movie (...)

Bush: “How do you know his life would have been good?"
By : Mary MacElveen - Thursday October 20, 2005
21 comments
By Mary MacElveen This past week, I have had discussions with a number of people through emails where they have suggested that I back down in my criticisms of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton since she voted for the war and perhaps will be the Democratic candidate come 2008. But, if I want to remain truthful with my readers and have credibility, I simply have to stay the course. As an American that has been against this war from the start, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s vote for (...)

Mary MacElveen : Some call it impeachment, I call it intervention!
By : Mary MacElveen - Thursday September 29, 2005

by Mary MacElveen This following sentence caught my attention in that “Booze Crisis” article in the National Enquirer where it stated, “Bush, who said he quit drinking the morning after his 40th birthday, has started boozing amid the Katrina catastrophe.” I am of the opinion that his addiction to alcohol and his use of it have always been problematic for him. What leads me to say this is the picture that was released the morning after his alleged choking incident (...)

If you wish to send him an email, here are his email addresses, jim@jamesPPinkerton.com or pinkerto@ix.netcom You may also wish to remind him that aid from other countries such as Venezuela and Cuba were offered at no expense to tax payers, but this federal government said, “Thanks but no thanks” My letter to Jim Pinkerton: Dear Jim, We have corresponded on a cordial level in the past, (...)

To support the victims of Katrina, do NOT give to “Operation Blessing”
By : Mary MacElveen - Wednesday September 7, 2005

by Mary MacElveen I am outraged as I read where FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) is directing Katrina donations to none other than the Rev. Pat Robertson. This is the same man who broke the law by threatening Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez’ life on national TV. According to information readily available at Sploid, it states “FEMA has released to the media and on its Web site a list of suggested charities to help the storm’s hundreds of thousands of victims. (...)

by Mary MacElveen Never in my wildest nightmares did I ever think that I would hear the word refugee used in relation to the citizens of the United States of America. But, thanks to Hurricane Katrina, our worst nightmare has come true. Some may say "I cannot believe this is happening to us" and my reply to them is similar situations have happened across the globe for a very long time and it stands to reason and given the stupidity of this government, our time would come.

Will oil-supply disruption give Bush carte blanche to invade Venezuela?

by Mary MacElveen Several atmospheric conditions came together which was described by the National Weather Service as the “perfect storm.” This monster of a storm sunk the Andrea Gail along with her captain, Captain Billy Tyne ... Hollywood even made a movie starring George Clooney. The reason why I ask if Katrina is our ’perfect storm’ is because the oil industry took one on the nose when many refineries were hit by this monster storm. * This past June the FX (...)

by Mary MacElveen! To My Fellow Americans, It is especially important in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to remind the American people that while this absentee government approved of the war in Iraq and spent billions doing so, these funds could have been better used to clean up after such catastrophes. As corporations who run our government made out like bandits where our government gave them billions and with the tax breaks to those who do not need it, this is our time to fight back (...)

by Mary MacElveen In light of Pat Robertson calling for the assassination of President Hugo Chavez then apologizing for it, what I have witnessed is the sounds of silence coming from all of our elected leaders, be they Democrat or Republican, chiming in unison that this was wrong. Then again, it goes hand in hand with the culture of death we are living with in this country. Yes, you heard me correctly ... this is a culture of death where the benefactors are the rich and the powerful that (...)

By Mary MacElveen Excuse me for once again coming down hard on my party’s leaders when it comes to the “Bush War” in Iraq, but I along with many others are becoming increasingly angry that the Democratic Party is NOT showing a sign of force, but complicity when it comes to this war. That is not to say that all of our Democratic leaders are supportive of this president, but when you have Mike McCurry a former Clinton White House press secretary stating this in a (...)

Why not use the Patriot Act against religious fanatics like Pat Robertson?
By : Mary MacElveen - Wednesday August 24, 2005

by Mary MacElveen Just yesterday in his broadcast on the 700 Club Reverend Pat Robertson called for the assassination of President Hugo Chavez who is the President of Venezuela. I find this outrageous coming from an alleged man of God. I find this equally outrageous that a man who believes in the sanctity of all human life would call for this. By calling for a world leader’s assassination, this proves that he is NOT PRO LIFE, but part of the sick machine that has taken hold of our (...)

Habitual lies to promote a war against the guiltless are pretty telling...

by Mary MacElveen In June, US president Bush’s spinmeister and advisor Karl Rove had this to say of liberals concerning September 11: “Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers.” I still say that this statement is ludicrous and just plain nuts. I am of the belief we go after those who not only attack us as a nation, but also personally. I am not of the belief of excusing horrific (...)

by Mary MacElveen With President Bush’s approval ratings in the dumpster the polling numbers reflect his ineffectiveness to lead this country in the right direction. You would think he would do something to rehabilitate himself in the eyes of Americans to gain back their trust. But this corrupt Polly Anna president of ours goes on day to day as if nothing is wrong. There is something very wrong when this president when a mom of a fallen soldier camps outside his Crawford home (...)

A Repost of "I Have Looked into Bush’s Soul and Saw Black" -Written by Me on May 27, 2002
By : Mary MacElveen - Monday August 15, 2005
by Mary MacElveen! To My Fellow Americans, As you have read my past pieces on my blog, I always choose blue as my font color. But, today, I am using black because it mirrors how I see Bush’s soul. I wrote the below piece for Democrats.com on May 27, 2002 to put down my feelings how I viewed Pres. Bush back then. Many more events have transpired since I wrote this piece such as the “Bush War” in Iraq, but what has remained constant is the narcissism that I do see (...)

Some Reasons Why I Do Not Trust the DLC

by Mary MacElveen To My Fellow Democrats, In the piece below "Hillary Clinton: Democratic mediator?" which appeared in yesterday’s Newsday, bothered me for many reasons. Some points brought out within this piece add to my total distrust for the Democratic Leadership Council. Last week, I wrote an editorial for the LiberalPatriot.org called, "How Can There Be Unity in the Democratic Party When Liberals are Shunned?" If you have not read that piece, please visit the Liberal Patriot (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream

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. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

At first glance, the results of America’s 2012 election appear to be a triumph for social, racial, and economic justice and progress in the United States: California voters passed a proposition requiring the rich to shoulder their fair share of the tax burden; Two states, Colorado and Washington, legalized the recreational use of marijuana, while Massachusetts approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes; Washington and two other states, Maine and Maryland, legalized same-sex (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
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 (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
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. About a year into my studies, I (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

ONE SOLITARY LIFE, PART TWO
Monday 30 July

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 DEMOCRACY ENDURE?

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. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. 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 (...)
