WASHINGTON - In 1992, Brent R. Wilkes rented a suite at the Hyatt Hotel a few blocks from the Capitol. In his briefcase was a stack of envelopes for a half-dozen congressmen, each packet containing up to $10,000 in checks.

But his hometown congressman, Representative Bill Lowery of San Diego, a Republican, told him that presenting (...)

Cheney’s Halliburton Loses Its Iraq Cash Cow By Charlie Cray, TomPaine.com Posted on July 31, 2006 Recently, the Army announced with much fanfare that it was canceling the monopoly logistics contract that Halliburton/KBR has used to bilk U.S. taxpayers since the occupation of Iraq began. The contract will be broken up and divided among at least three different companies, but it’s not clear that this will make much difference to taxpayers, or even that Halliburton will stop (...)

In college my History professor constantly advised us to "follow the money" if you want to know what causes international conflict. In the current Mid East fiasco this could never be more obvious. The U.S. sells an inordinate amount of expensive sophisticated weaponry to Israel each year, and the truth is...we ALSO sell it "sub rosa", via neutral third countries...to various Arab quasi-terror organizations!

The Dreamslayers & the Internet
By : Jim Kirwan - Saturday July 15, 2006
by Jim Kirwan Unregulated Capitalism is a continuing crime that has enabled most of what passes for commerce today. The latest and perhaps most serious attempt to regulate those of us who challenge these behemoths of commerce and industry; is the pending legislation that seeks total control over who can use the world-wide web. If these people have their way, the internet will become a toll-road with diamond lanes for them and the backroads of lengthy delays for the rest of America. If (...)

What Happened To Accountability?

What Happened To Accountability? By Clarence Page 7/3/2006 I think President Bush does protest a bit too much about the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and the Wall Street Journal’s exposure of his administration’s secret money-tracking program. Bush called it "disgraceful" that the newspapers reported that Treasury Department officials acquired access to the world’s largest international financial database, the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial (...)

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.

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 (...)

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.

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 (...)
