THINGS BUSH COULD SAY By Peter Fredson December 13, 2005 Torture? What Torture? No Torture! Someone outed a CIA agent? Gee, wonder who that could have been? Karl Rove. Nice Guy. I hadda punish him by putting him in charge of the reconstruction of New Orleans.. Tom DeLay? Haven’t seen him around lately. Condi Rice. Nice Shoes. Perky. Good Liar. Dick Cheney? Uncle Dick? Keeps secrets. Laura? Knows when to shut up. I have to kill them “over there” or else they (...)

Bush Tolls Liberty Bell at Philadelphia By Peter Fredson December 12, 2005 We all know that the Bush propaganda people are good at presenting our tyrannical, impatient, petulant, irresponsible, egomaniacal President as honest, candid, transparent, hard-working, efficient and highly moral. We all know this is stage-management, with good background lighting, with sacred or patriotic backdrops, with captive audiences, surrounded by the largest security forces and agents in our history. We (...)

Rhetorical Questions about Lies and Torture By Peter Fredson December 11, 2005 Today a news headline stated: “NATO CHIEF: RICE ’CLEARED THE AIR’ ON DETAINEE CHARGES” The main story was a simple assertion: “Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has briefed NATO and European Union colleagues on the Bush administration response to allegations the CIA has abused terrorism suspects and had secret detention sites in Europe.

STICK TO A GOOD LIE By Peter Fredson December 10, 2005 Condi Rice, Bush’s attack dog, the Black Angel of Death, has been high-stepping around Europe lately with the fancy shoes that she bought as Katrina killed many people. I’m surprised she doesn’t wear hip-height rubber boots to wade knee-deep in all the crap she is spreading on European leaders. But she finds time to lecture Syria and Iran and constantly threaten them because that was the neocons plan years ago. She (...)

Their Machiavellian plans for World Conquest, the Downing (...)

THE BUSH STRATEGERY FOR FAILED VICTORY

The New Old Strategery for Failed Victory By Peter Fredson December 5, 2005 After a recent Bush speech to Annapolis Cadets the Pentagon announced a “growing consensus” to cut down on the number of U.S. troops in Iraq. It seems to me a stronger statement would have been that, in view of very strong criticism, Bush is now, at least, considering doing “something” about the Iraq quagmire. He’s not considering doing very much but is pulling out all emotional (...)

Bush Wows at Annapolis By Peter Fredson December 4, 2005 President George W. Bush gave an eloquent and emotional speech at the U.S. Naval Academy in Maryland recently to another captive audience of bright and shiny cadets, plus enough admirals, generals and politicians to let the public think that someone with some sense was backing him up. He included a 35-page policy paper "OUR NATIONAL STRATEGY FOR VICTORY IN IRAQ," a rehash of his arguments for the past 3 years, including (...)

What Bush Might Have Said If He Ever Told the Truth Satire by Peter Fredson December 2, 2005 Our courageous American hero, George Bush, Lord of Missions Accomplished, gave another of his cloned speeches the other day at Annapolis, to a captive audience of bright and shining cadets, who had no idea what evil genius awaited their service. Some phrases from his speech were taken from the Neocon Strategy for Victory handbook years ago. SCENE: George I is sitting in his bedroom having a (...)

How to Manipulate the Press
By : peter fredsib - Wednesday November 30, 2005
Manipulating the Media By Peter Fredson November 30, 2005 A blogger recently asked that in view of my longevity and varied experience I might write something about changes noted. Years ago I was a photographer-reporter and attended a Presidential photo-op for a visiting dignitary. The news-people were invited to partake of delicious snacks at a large table. Then the President got up on a dais with his visitor, both made speeches, and left the room. A bodyguard of the President went to (...)

WHOSE WAR WAS IT? By Peter Fredson November 26, 2005 Whose war was it really? Was it Bush’s War? Dick Cheney’s War? Karl Rove’s War? There is an honest debate among bloggers and reporters about which person in the Bush administration decided that invading Iraq, for whatever reason, was a good idea. All three are neocons immersed in the philosophy of preemption, domination, and aggressivity as means to imperial glory. Any one of the three were certainly capable of (...)

The other day I read another of George Bush’s incessant belligerent war rumblings against Muslim countries.

The United States warned it would accept no half measures and wants the Syrians gone before May elections. The United States is wary of (...)

BEST SPEECHES MONEY CAN BUY By Peter Fredson November 24, 2005 By now everyone knows that all of the Bush speechwriters use Newspeak liberally. This is the fine art of making white appear to be black, war to be peace, incompetence appear to be clever leadership, torture to be simple college pranks, corruption appear to be bookkeeping mistakes, with death and destruction appearing to be joyous preparation for a wonderful eternal world of the future. Everyone knows that a loyal sycophant (...)

INCONGRUITY IN IRAQ By Peter Fredson November 21, 2005 “Incongruity: strangeness, absurdity, inappropriateness”, according to my in-computer thesaurus, seems to reflect the puzzlement I feel when looking at the daily news about Iraq for the past four years. I wonder what those young people in United States uniform, holding automatic weapons at the ready, dressed like Samurai warriors in full-field gear, are doing so far from home. Why are they not back home in Sheboygan, (...)

MURDEROUS LEADERS By Peter Fredson November 21, 2005 History has long passages referring to the murderous inclinations of politicians. Just read the HISTORY OF THE PERSIAN WARS by Herodotus if you wish to get a feeling of revulsion at the senseless murders of many thousands of people because of the whims of leaders seeking power. Perhaps you have heard of a leader of Haiti who marched a troop of soldiers over a cliff just to demonstrate to a visitor their absolute loyalty to him? It is (...)

FORGIVE MY CYNICISM By Peter Fredson November 19, 2005 I was not always cynical of American politics, civics, and public service. Indeed, I thought highly of “American Values” such as patriotism, honor, honesty, keep one’s sworn word, doing one’s duty to country, and serving honorably. Although I knew that the words “Liberty” and “Democracy” had multiple meanings for philosophers and linguists, to me they were fairly straight-forward. (...)

WHAT PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT BUSH

2 comments
WHAT MANY PEOPLE DON’T KNOW By Peter Fredson November 18, 2005 It is on the record that many of the GOP war hawks, that still insist war on Iraq was necessary, were draft dodgers. They sought deferments from military service until danger of losing blood or limb was over, or they joined a National Guard unit which rarely forced them to quit a job. So, with this vast military experience, most of the GOP Senators pontificate at length about war strategy, casualties, preemption, Shock (...)

REASONED HATRED 2 By Peter Fredson November 18, 2005 Several weeks ago a fellow blogger remarked that I showed “unreasoning hatred” of George Bush. I then wrote an essay showing how I used reason to identify my hatred of Bush and specified his intolerable religious chauvinism. Now I will give additional reasons why I think George Bush is the very worst President the U.S. has ever had, and that this country is in enormous danger of becoming a variant of fascist theocracy. (...)

Bush remarked that I was expressing unreasoning hatred of our President. I would like to say that I believe I am expressing reasoned hatred of Bush. I did not always hate the man. Sometimes I despised his smirk, his swagger or his very strange verbalisms, but years ago I did not hate him. I often reflected on the circumstances where his rich and powerful (...)

REASONS WHY BUSH INVADED IRAQ By Peter Fredson George Bush and most of the Republicans in Congress were alarmed by public reaction to the Bush and FEMA inaction during Katrina. They came up with a strategy to take some of the blame away. They said that everybody was to blame: city, county, state officials and maybe, perhaps, even the President may have incurred a tiny bit of blame. Today they have reworked this strategy to take the growing heat off of the Bush administration for (...)

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

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 (...)

PART I PART III PART IV Several years ago, a young lady came into the college where I was teaching to inquire about a full-time instructor’s position in the sociology department.

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 (...)

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 (...)
