Jack Cafferty asks if the Iraq War will be recorded as a “comma”
By : Mary MacElveen - Thursday October 12, 2006
3 comments
By Mary MacElveen Jack Cafferty of CNN’s ‘Situation Room’ is no stranger to speaking out and asking the viewers what they think as evident in this CrooksAndLiars.com video feed titled, “Sometimes politicians say really dumb things” This is not the first time, nor do I suppose it will be the last that journalists such as Cafferty are willing to go against the current media trend and express his negative opinions of Bush. If one were a Marine, one would shout, (...)

While Bush and the GOP were off hunting ghosts, North Korea waved hello

While Bush and the GOP were off hunting ghosts, North Korea waved hello By Mary MacElveen October 11, 2006 Well it seems now that Senator John McCain has jumped on the bandwagon non-accountability as he blames the latest North Korean nuclear test on Bill Clinton. At some point it is up to the American people to start holding the GOP accountable and it is my hope that it will come soon. The GOP acts collectively like a child saying, “No, Mom, I did not do it, he did.” It (...)

Outgoing MP, Clare Short is “Profoundly Ashamed” of the UK Government
By : Mary MacElveen - Thursday October 5, 2006
1 comment
By Mary MacElveen There are times when listening to talk radio in foreign countries; I realize that we are not so different. Even Parliament leaders from Great Britain show us that we are all very much the same. I was just listening to the Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2 as he was interviewing outgoing MP Clare Short. She has accused Prime Minister, Tony Blair and the Labor Party as a whole moving too far to the right. Does that sound as if she were talking of how some Democrats have (...)

Bush Assassination Film is just fictional as was ‘The Path to 9/11’
By : Mary MacElveen - Wednesday October 4, 2006
1 comment
By Mary MacElveen At this point, I challenge any station to air the movie that depicts the assassination of George W. Bush. This movie is a piece of fiction as was the ‘Path to 9/11’ But, knowing our corporate controlled media, they will not because they are ‘gun shy’ since the conservative base within this country will have a field day trying to shut down the airing of this movie. I know that was a bad pun to use, but one that is applicable in this case. This (...)

It’s all Bill Clinton’s Fault
By : Mary MacElveen - Wednesday October 4, 2006

by Mary MacElveen The world hates the United States as evident as Bush travels abroad, so it must mean that it is all Bill Clinton’s fault. We have a growing and dangerous deficit and it must mean that it is all Bill Clinton’s fault. Our civil liberties are being trashed and it must mean that it is all Bill Clinton’s fault. Bush turned his back on victims of Hurricane Katrina and it must mean that it is all Bill Clinton’s fault. Bush and the GOP led government (...)

By Mary MacElveen September 12, 2006 As with any piece that angers me, I have to walk away for a bit, process it, and then write of it. In this case, I cannot especially the day after the fifth anniversary of terrorist attacks that befell this nation. Bush is seen as our defender against said terrorists. I would like to ask him then why is a US judge releasing a terrorist from jail? For close to a year now, I have been the voice of 73 innocent victims of terrorism as they lost their (...)

It’s a Small World After All
By : Mary MacElveen - Tuesday September 12, 2006
by Mary MacElveen The Disney company that owns ABC theme for as long as I can remember is, “It’s a small world after all” and with that said, their plans to air ‘A Path to 9/11’ on the eve of the fifth anniversary of September 11th, 2006 says to many that they are dealing with yet another fairy tale. But, this fairy tale if not corrected in order to relay the truth of the events that led up to this horrific attack, will be seen by and large by the American (...)

Is the failure to capture Osama bin Laden President Clinton’s fault too?
By : Mary MacElveen - Wednesday September 6, 2006
By Mary MacElveen As we come up on the fifth anniversary of September 11, 2001 which was by all means a day that lived in infamy that took the lives of three thousand innocent people, Bush promised us all that he would capture Osama bin Laden, “Dead or alive” As the days wore on with no accountability by this administration and a complicit media that forgot those three words, his (Bush’s) message morphed into, “I do not know where he is, he is not important and is (...)

Mayor Ross ‘Rocky’ Anderson: “Give us the truth!”

By Mary MacElveen I want you all to pay close attention to this quote by the Salt Lake City, Utah mayor, Rocky Anderson as he said, “Blind faith in bad leaders is not patriotism” Since 9/11, many Americans have fallen victim to said blind faith with this administration flogging them all into the most brutal submission that if they dared to speak out, that they were unpatriotic. This administration has created a fascist state even more powerful than prior ones that equally (...)

On many occasions through writing for VHeadline.com, I have told my readers in the United States how their own damn government was their enemy and not President Hugo Chavez. On several occasions, I have written favorable comments when it comes to Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. In my eyes, he is very much the patriot. (...)

by Mary MacElveen When Ned Lamont won the Democratic primary in Connecticut against the three term senator, Joe Lieberman, it was taken that Democratic voters and Democrats themselves do not take terrorism seriously. As a Democrat here in the United States, I will go on record stating that is complete nonsense. Through many columns here at VHeadline.com, I have been calling for the extradition of Luis Posada Carriles who is presently being held in El Paso, Texas. It seems that the (...)

by Mary MacElveen I have been speaking of what is a warranted fear as opposed to an unwarranted one and as I read this statement from the extremist right-wing-nut, Dick Cheney in which, concerning Ned Lamont’s win in the Conneticut Democratic primary, he stated that he found it "disturbing." The rightist vice president then went on to say “the al Qaeda types, they clearly are betting on the proposition that ultimately they can break the will of the American people in terms of (...)

How many terrorists see an opportunity due to Bush and Blair’s stupidity?
By : MaryMacElveen - Monday August 14, 2006
by Mary MacElveen At this point, I want to knock some sense into the mainstream media for playing Bush and Blair’s game and that is the game of terror and fear. These so-called news organizations that are read and viewed by millions are now coming out with disturbing facts concerning this alleged terror plot that would have blown ten airplanes headed to the United States out of the skies. In fact, I’m ripping mad that they would play with the lives of innocent people and (...)

It is in the best interests of President Hugo Chavez and Venezuela that he should take immediate action to purge CITGO!
By : Mary MacElveen - Sunday July 16, 2006
by Mary MacElveen Normally, I do not like to write columns mirroring he said/she said, but in this case I will do so. I just read Drew Raines reaction to my piece in which he stated, "I’ve read Mary MacElveen’s article and fully agree with what she has said EXCEPT that in the real world Chavez can’t monitor EVERYTHING at all times." To this I add, in this one instance, President Chavez should be monitoring this situation since tensions have arose between our two (...)

I do that since I find what is written to be of great value ... we all can learn a thing or two ... hopefully by learning a valued lesson ... we the people can change not only this country for the better, but the world as well.

by Mary MacElveen There is a wonderful (American) TV show that will end its run after many years of entertaining us and giving those who often do not know the inner workings of the White House a lesson on how the executive branch works. The show I speak of is "The West Wing." Many people through these past five years have craved a president like President Jeb Bartlet. After all, he is intelligent and speaks in coherent sentences and does not seem to take that many vacations. In the 2004 (...)

by Mary MacElveen The other day, I sat down to watch Molly Ivins on C-Span.org. Ms. Ivins is a columnist after my own heart. In the interview, a caller phoned in and cited that he was once a moderate Republican, but felt the need to leave that party since it no longer represented his values. The date of the interview was January 27 and was one day off of my six year anniversary where I too felt as that caller did and left the Republican Party. While he did not say if he joined another (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream
Friday 24 January

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 (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)
