Taken from www.valenzuelasveritas.blogs... (I would suggest for anyone to surf through this writer’s archives and read some of the essays. They are truly outstanding and enlightening works.) Like Taking Candy from a Baby As natural as the end of summer giving way to cooler temperatures and the changing colors of the trees, the vast machinations of the military-energy industrial complex has yet again begun to spin in preparation for the upcoming midterm elections, using the myriad (...)

Today will governments talk of democracy, freedom, jobs, and future hope IT IS not these things that are the foundations of our system but the desire to self pleasure and to ignore as much of the issues and problems of others as possible. That is why drug usage and the culture of self absorbtion was planned and executed by the New World Order starting with the advent of advertising (public mind control) combined with the works of psycho-analysis and understanding how to scientifically PUSH (...)

The Ironclad Incompatibility of Democracy and Islam

There’s much talk now about spreading democracy throughout the Arabic cultures, as if such a mission were possible. If one is, say, aiming for 2909, then perhaps there’d be a chance. But now? Impossible. And the reasons are abundantly clear though not quite obvious in the public arena. Supporters say, look at the strains of Islam that have adopted to democracy, or at how well the Ottoman Empire treated aliens. Is that the empirical proof democracy stands a snowball’s (...)

In the guise of fighting terrorism and maintaining public order, Tony Blair’s Government has quietly and systematically taken power from Parliament and the British people. The author charts a nine-year assault on civil liberties that reveals the danger of trading freedom for security - and must have Churchill spinning in his grave By Henry Porter In the shadow of Winston Churchill’s statue opposite the House of Commons, a rather odd ritual has developed on Sunday afternoons.

The High Price Of American Gullibility Watch Us, Wiretap Us, Search Us, Jail Us ... By Paul Craig Roberts July 2, 2006 What explains the gullibility of Americans, a gullibility that has mired the US in disastrous wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and which promises war with Iran, North Korea and a variety of other targets if neoconservatives continue to have their way? Part of the explanation is that millions of conservatives are thrilled at the opportunity to display their patriotism and to (...)

The Bush War On Liberty Intensifies

The Bush War On Liberty Intensifies By Chris Floyd June 29, 2006 Glenn Greenwald has the goods on the all-out war that the Bush Regime and its bootlicking sycophants throughout the right-wing media are waging against the free press. The recent "controversy" over the New York Times report on the Regime’s surveillance of bank records is, as Greenwald astutely notes, based entirely on outright falsehoods. It is also being deliberately stoked by the White House, whose lies about the (...)

CrytoCracy is Killing Our Humanity

Throughout history it has been through the establishment of secrets in the areas of knowledge, ideas, news of events and many other types of social information that has provided the need cover to rule over humanity through lies and the subversion of information. This wholesale destruction of TRUTH and openness is thus then the primary means to enslave and mind control the mass of humanity through out the epoch of time. Humans are message processing creatures that after acquiring basic (...)

Focused only on building workers’ rights
By : Han Dongfang - Thursday June 8, 2006
By Han Dongfang On April 25, 1989, Deng Xiaoping made a speech to Communist Party leaders urging an immediate government crackdown on any sign of an upsurge in the democratic movement. Party leaders "should learn from the experience of Poland’s Solidarity trade union", and "must not be soft-handed" in dealing with the democratic movement in China, he said. Then on June 4, 1989, the government launched its bloody crackdown on the movement by students and workers. The latter was (...)

SAUDI COSMETICS?

Will Louisiana lead the nation?

By Rob Richie Last year Hurricanes Katrina and Rita pounded Louisiana with a horrible one-two punch of destruction. This year, it’s just possible that Louisiana will send forth its own hurricane: a political hurricane to create a more representative democracy in America. On May 10, a Louisiana house committee approved the National Popular Vote plan for presidential elections. If signed into law, it would make Louisiana the first of what promises to be dozens of states entering into (...)

Political Invisibles

by Sasha Abramsky What does it mean when a democracy removes the vote from several million adults? How is the political process affected when certain groups — racial minorities and low-income whites, in particular — bear the brunt of this disenfranchisement? These are not abstract questions intended to tax the minds of students in a poli-sci class. Rather, they are questions about a massive contraction of the franchise that is occurring, today, largely in the shadows, in the (...)

Block the Vote
By : New York Times - Tuesday May 30, 2006
In a country that spends so much time extolling the glories of democracy, it’s amazing how many elected officials go out of their way to discourage voting. States are adopting rules that make it hard, and financially perilous, for nonpartisan groups to register new voters. They have adopted new rules for maintaining voter rolls that are likely to throw off many eligible voters, and they are imposing unnecessarily tough ID requirements. Florida recently reached a new low when it (...)

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" (...)

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 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 (...)
