Disowning Conservative Politics, Evangelical Pastor Rattles Flock By Laurie Goodstein Published: July 30, 2006 MAPLEWOOD, Minn. - Like most pastors who lead thriving evangelical megachurches, the Rev. Gregory A. Boyd was asked frequently to give his blessing - and the church’s - to conservative political candidates and causes. The requests came from church members and visitors alike: Would he please announce a rally against gay marriage during services? Would he introduce a (...)

Stop the Bleeding

Slogans for Dems: Stop the Bleeding. Start the Healing. Vote Democratic. Restore Sanity. Vote Democratic. Now all you condescending, cynical naysayers don’t have to waste your breath by saying how the Dems are no different, blah, blah. What I want to see used by Dems is language that is effective. It may already be too late but I’ll try anyway. johnnybgood

Send in the UN
By : johnnybgood - Monday July 24, 2006
So, Republicans have nothing to hide, do they? In that case, and I’m not joking, I think we should have the UN monitor the November 06 US elections. It’s a neutral party, and the chances of a fair fight would vastly improve. Foreign nations know the score. Now it’s up to them to let Americans in on the truth! johnnybgood

Mexican workers want a recount
By : David Bacon - Monday July 24, 2006
by David Bacon Huge national demonstrations in Mexico are now demanding a recount of the votes cast in the presidential election, tainted by allegations of vote fraud. Mexico’s wealthiest families have a lot to lose. All benefited from Mexico’s conservative economic reforms, which the leading candidate, Felipe Calderon of the conservative National Action Party, vows to continue. The Villareals’ Grupo Villacero, for instance, was virtually given the huge Sicartsa steel (...)

How To Pre-Empt A "November Surprise"

How To Pre-Empt A "November Surprise" By Mark Crispin Miller July 18, 2006 If the GOP should lose the House and/or the Senate on Election Day, they will pick out a handful of the "closest" races—as many as they need to hang on to majority control—and start to scream like hell about ELECTION FRAUD. That’s right: the major perpetrators of such fraud will cast themselves as victims of the very crime that put them where they are, and charge the Democrats with having used (...)

The Stolen Election Of 2004 The Numbers Simply Do Not Add Up By Michael Parenti July 13, 2006 The 2004 presidential contest between Democratic challenger Senator John Kerry and the Republican incumbent, President Bush Jr., amounted to another stolen election. This has been well documented by such investigators as Rep. John Conyers, Mark Crispin Miller, Bob Fitrakis, Harvey Wasserman, Bev Harris, and others. Here is an overview of what they have reported, along with observations of my own. (...)

Activists Sue To Block Electronic Voting

Activists Sue To Block Electronic Voting By The Associated Press July 13, 2006 at 3:31 ET Computerized voting was supposed to be the cure for ballot fiascos such as the 2000 presidential election, but activist groups say it has only worsened the problem and they’ve gone to court across the country to ban the new machines. Lawsuits have been filed in at least nine states, alleging that the machines are wide open to computer hackers and prone to temperamental fits of technology that (...)

Mexicans put us to shame in fighting for a fair election..
By : Mary MacElveen - Saturday July 15, 2006
by Mary MacElveen The United States of America always prides herself as being the land of democracy, but when it comes to elections we fail on so many fronts. Either Americans are too apathetic to vote, or worse those that do vote wonder if their vote even counted through the use of computerized voting machines. When many feel that an election has been stolen from the people, we wonder when the people shall rise up in protest. As I was looking at these AP photos showing the mass (...)

Why Democrats Don’t Count. Lessons from the Un-Gore of Mexico
By : Greg Palast - Saturday July 15, 2006
By Greg Palast The Exit polls said he won, but the "official" tally took his victory away. His supporters found they were scrubbed off voter rolls. Violence and intimidation kept even more of his voters away from the polls. Hundreds of thousands of ballots supposedly showed no choice for president — like ballots with hanging chads. And the officials in charge of this suspect election refused to re-count those votes in public. Everyone knew full well a fair count would certainly (...)

By Bruce Dixon, BC Editor "Don’t put that out there" is the admonition delivered to folks impolite enough to talk about bad things which might happen but have not yet come to pass, as if mere discussion or consideration of some awful possibility makes it more likely. We at BC understand politeness. But failing to recognize, to examine and to understand unpleasant possibilities before they become devastating realities is worse than impolite. It’s foolish.

DEMOCRACY, MEXICAN STYLE -PART II

Democracy, Mexican Style - Part II - by Stephen Lendman There’s much happening in Mexico in the aftermath of the nation’s most contentious election ever, but it began many months before the first vote was cast. The popularity of leftist opposition candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD) scared the ruling National Action Party (PAN) enough to get them to try to deny him the right to run for president in the election just concluded. (...)

Democracy, Mexican Style - by Stephen Lendman What do these presidential elections all have in common: Mexico, 1988, US, 2000, US, 2004, Colombia and Peru, 2006 and the just concluded Mexican election on July 2? In each case, the outcome was "arranged" and known in advance before voters went to the polls. They’re what economist and media and social critic Edward Herman calls "Demonstration Elections" - the characterization and title he gave his 1980s book analyzing and documenting (...)

Hillary May Be Presidential Material, After All. On Iraq and Israel, she’s a perfect neocon

by Joshua Frank There really is no way of getting around it. Sen. Hillary Clinton may well be future presidential material. From Manhattan to Hollywood, Hillary Clinton is pocketing enormous amounts of cash for her reelection campaign. Yet, Hillary is facing what seems to be fierce opposition from within her own party, as well as from third parties here in New York. The main reason candidates have signed up to challenge Hillary is her position, er, non-position on the disgraceful "war on (...)

At least 57 million ignorant and/or uneducated or wealthy Americans...those who "voted" for Bush in 2004, don’t worry at all about the outcome of the Novermber primary elections. They are pretty confindent that Republican Congressmen will hold their respective offices, and therefore, the majority. How can they be so sure? Simple. They know that, most likely, the various tricks and shenanigans which were in play in the ’04 Presidential election will be replayed this time around, (...)

Many Americans, including most political observers, sat down to watch the evening television coverage convinced that Kerry would be the next president.

Voter Insecurity And The 2006 Elections By James Zogby (Monday June 26 2006) "Insecurity runs deep in America today. Despite macro indicators which point to a relatively strong economy, polls show that most US voters are insecure about their future. Only 29% say that the country is on the right track and many indicate concern with job loss." While most contests in a congressional election year are decided on local issues and personalities, national themes often set the stage in a way (...)

From Kansas To South Carolina, Republican Moderates Are Turning Their Backs On The Neocons And Defecting To The Enemy Paul Harris in Topeka, Kansas Sunday June 25, 2006 The squat, bunker-like building in a south Topeka suburb does not look like a place to turn American politics on its head. Nor does Mark Parkinson, a tall, affable man, look too much like a revolutionary. But here, deep in the American heartland, are the warning signs of a political earthquake.

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 (...)

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 (...)
