Far Beyond Torture: The Long Dark History
By : Chris Floyd - Friday May 8, 2009
The intrepid David Swanson digs up another damning memo written by that factotum of evil, Jay Bybee. This particular sinister scribbling did not involve the brutal torture of gulag captives, however. No, in this case, Jay had bigger fish to fry for his masters: the murder of more than a million people in a Hitlerian act of military aggression... And so we come back full-circle in the filthy, bloodsoaked, incestuous nest of American power politics. Bill Clinton is now regarded as a Bush (...)

Tortured Logic
By : Johnny Canuck - Friday April 17, 2009
by Chris Floyd I have little to say at the moment on details of the Bush torture memos released by the Obama Administration, beyond what I have been saying for many years now about these sickening practices, and what they say about America’s bipartisan, imperial elite, which countenanced them, and often openly championed them... http://www.uruknet.info?p=53484

Atrocity Unlimited: US Seeks to Turn Somalia into Global Free-Fire Zone by Chris Floyd Global Research, December 12, 2008 uruknet.info Not content with destroying the only vestige of stability that Somalia had known for almost two decades by arming, backing and participating in a brutal "regime change" invasion by Ethiopia, the Bush Administration now wants to turn the ravaged land into an international "free fire zone," a giant Fallujah where any powerful nation on earth can launch (...)

Sentimental Education: Academia Signs Up to Track Down Dissent

Sentimental Education: Academia Signs Up to Track Down Dissent By Chris Floyd, TO UK Correspondent t r u t h o u t | Report Tuesday 17 October 2006 I. Why is the United States government spending millions of dollars to track down critics of George W. Bush in the press? And why have major American universities agreed to put this technology of tyranny into the state’s hands? At the most basic level, of course, both questions are easily answered: 1) Power. 2) (...)

Bush’s Bloodbath In Babylon: "Coincidence" And Consequences By Chris Floyd July 18, 2006 Neighbors are Killing Neighbors (Washington Post): After more than a week of some of the most vicious sectarian violence of the war, Baghdad is a skeleton of a city: Many of its shops are shuttered, its streets drained of people.The violence erupted July 9 when Shiite Muslim militiamen rampaged through the al-Jihad neighborhood and killed dozens of Sunni Arabs. By Friday, the sixth day, the (...)

http://context.themoscowtimes.com/s... Over and over, the Bush regime and its media apologists have peddled the same mendacious line in defense of their war crime in Iraq: "We’re fighting the terrorists over there so we don’t have to fight them over here." But in fact the occupation is breeding a cadre of vicious terrorists intent on bringing death and destruction back home to America’s streets, using the deadly skills they’ve learned — in the U.S. military. (...)

Clowntime is Over: The Last Stand of the American Republic
By : Chris Floyd - Friday December 30, 2005

So now, at last, the crisis is upon us. Now the cards are finally on the table, laid out so starkly that even the Big Media sycophants and Beltway bootlickers can no longer ignore them. Now the choice for the American Establishment is clear, and inescapable: do you hold for the Republic, or for autocracy? There is no third way here, no other option, no wiggle room, no ambiguity. The much-belated exposure of George W. Bush’s warrantless spy program has forced the Bush-Cheney Regime to (...)

Brass in Pocket, Blood on the Tracks
By : Chris Floyd - Wednesday December 7, 2005
by Chris Floyd The only defense for the indefensible is to be offensive, it seems. The Bush Faction has obviously decided to stop refuting allegations about torture and just openly embrace the heinous practice instead. You’ve got Bush vowing to veto torture restrictions, you’ve got Cheney twisting arms on Capitol Hill to preserve the Faction’s inalienable right to beat people to death — and now you’ve got Condi Rice traipsing off to Europe to tell (...)

GLOBAL EYE: First Light
By : fidelista - Friday November 25, 2005
First Light By Chris Floyd Published, MOSCOW TIMES: November 25, 2005 Last week, America’s troubled sleep was shattered by a trumpet blast of truth sounding deep in Washington’s corridors of power, where the rule of the Lie has held sway for so long. This intrusion of reality into the bloodstained fantasyland of the Bush Regime comes late in the day for the moribund Republic — perhaps too late — but it has struck a mighty blow against the Lie’s adherents, (...)

John Roberts and Enemy Combatants
By : Chris Floyd - Saturday August 20, 2005
By Chris Floyd The United States long ago ceased to be anything like a living, thriving republic. But it retained the legal form of a republic, and that counted for something: as long as the legal form still existed, even as a gutted shell, there was hope it might be filled again one day with substance. But now the very legal structures of the Republic are being dismantled. The principle of arbitrary rule by an autocratic leader is being openly established, through a series of (...)

Darker Purpose
By : Chris Floyd - Saturday July 30, 2005
1 comment
Last week, we wrote of the Bush Faction’s increasingly successful drive to establish the principle of unlimited presidential authority — beyond the reach of any law or constitutional restriction — as the new foundation of a militarist American state. This relentless push toward autocracy gained even more strength in recent days, in two cases centering on what has emerged as the very core of President George W. Bush’s authoritarian philosophy: torture. Vice President (...)

Global Eye: Dark Waters

Last Friday, the former physician of ex-President George H.W. Bush wrote a guest column for The Washington Post. Two days later, the attorney general appointed by current President George W. Bush made a surprise visit to Baghdad. These seemingly unrelated events are not only inextricably linked; together they form a portrait of a nation gone wretchedly astray, hurtling into a moral void from which there may be no return. There was nothing unusual about the physician, Dr. Burton Lee III, (...)

Killing Joke: The Day the American Republic Died Bob Herbert, who has been incandescent for months now , usefully reminds us of the comedy routine that Bush performed for a sycophantic audience of TV and radio "journalists" back in March 2004: the infamous "hunt for WMD" in the Oval Office. As you’ll recall, this was a series of cutesy shots showing Bush peering behind the office curtains, looking under the rug while cracking wise: "No weapons of mass destruction under here! Maybe (...)

Indefensible: Bush and Blair’s Secret Air War that Began in 2002

Global Eye Heaven’s Gate By Chris Floyd This week, President George W. Bush gave a big speech "explaining" the Iraq war to the American people. It was the usual load of lying blather and false piety — deeply, even murderously cynical. But there’s no point in wasting a single thought over these clown shows anymore. Bush is a nasty little moral cretin fronting a gang of elitist thugs whose only concerns are loot and power. Nothing he says has the slightest credibility. (...)

The Big Fix- Russia examines US vote fraud

By Chris Floyd Let’s face the facts. The game is over and we — the "reality-based community," the believers in genuine democracy and law, the heirs of Jefferson and Madison, Emerson and Thoreau, the toilers and dreamers, all those who seek to rise above the beast within and shape the brutal chaos of existence into something higher, richer and imbued with meaning — have lost. The better world we thought had been won out of the blood and horror of history — a realm of (...)

Global Eye : Hysterica Passio
By : Chris Floyd - Monday November 1, 2004
By Chris Floyd Now we come at last to the heart of darkness. Now we know, from their own words, that the Bush Regime is a cult — a cult whose god is Power, whose adherents believe that they alone control reality, that indeed they create the world anew with each act of their iron will. And the goal of this will — undergirded by the cult’s supreme virtues of war, fury and blind faith — is likewise openly declared: "Empire." You think this is an exaggeration? Then heed (...)

National Guard Troops in Iraq Intervene in Prisoner Beatings
By : Chris Floyd - Saturday August 14, 2004
Global Eye Unnatural Acts By Chris Floyd After months of bad press, here at last was an act of genuine humanitarianism by U.S. troops in Iraq that could have been trumpeted to the skies: a unit of National Guard troops — part-time citizen-soldiers from Oregon — rescuing a group of prisoners from sadistic torture by the security forces of the "sovereign" Iraqi government. Yet the incident was buried by U.S. brass, who repudiated their own soldiers — and backed the Iraqi (...)

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" (...)

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

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 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 (...)

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.

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 (...)
