Conyers: Forget Impeachment “basement hearings-Constitution in Crisis Report Watershed Achievements"
By : John Conyers - Thursday November 16, 2006
6 comments
Dear Disillusioned Misled Email List, We did it! We won at least 29 House seats and took the majority. We won 6 Senate seats and took back the Senate too, not to mention 28 Governors and several more statehouses. We had incredible turnout of Democratic voters across the country. Thanks to you, we had a vigorous election protection program in place to fight those who would restrict our right to vote. We ran a positive campaign on the issues that really matter to American voters. The past (...)

What Happened? or...Why I Voted Blue
By : BenAMarine - Wednesday November 15, 2006
We noticed! It is now three days after the Nov. 7 election. I have read one Republican analysis of the party’s failure after another, most of which seem at a loss as to where the blame might squarely be laid. Like President Bush, no one could see how the Republicans had done anything wrong, or how they might have done anything significantly different. Well, I am just one of the small, average shmoes out in middle America who, like most of the small average shmoes with whom I (...)

Was the reaction to the 2006 election a ‘Network’ moment? By Mary MacElveen November 14, 2006 In thinking back to America’s reaction to the 2006 mid term elections, the only term that I can come up with that best describes the results of these elections is that America had a ‘Network’ moment. We all remember that movie Network in which the producer opened up the window and angrily shouted out, “I am mad as hell and I am not going to take it (...)

New Faces, Same Agenda

New Faces, Same Agenda - by Stephen Lendman The political firmament shook briefly post-November 7 raising hopes change would follow the Republican’s drubbing at the polls and the Democrats regaining control of both houses of Congress for the first time since the GOP sweep in 1994. Presumed new House speaker Nancy Pelosi stopped the tremors making it clear no substantive change will be on the table when when the 110th Congress convenes on January 3. Instead, she announced to those (...)

No Arab, Palestinian Cheers for U.S. Democrats
By : Nicola Nasser - Monday November 13, 2006

By Nicola Nasser* Arabs, at least at the non-official level, were quick to hail President George W. Bush’s mid-term electoral defeat and the humiliating downfall of his war architect Donald Rumsfeld, but cheering the Democrats’ victory has yet to wait and may not be voiced at all. Why hailing Bush’s defeat? Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist, Jim Hogland, of The Washington Post had part of the answer: “Bush lost more than a midterm election and a (...)

Dear Mr. Russert and Producers of Meet the Press: With John McCain and Joe Lieberman as your guests on this Sunday’s Meet the Press, you have proven just how completely out of touch you are with the American public. And, this is on the heels of a monumental repudiation of the Republican party and a nationwide victory by Democrats. Why wasn’t Nancy Pelosi on your show? Harry Reid? Russ Feingold? John Conyers? The voters of America have spoken loud and clear. The leadership of (...)

If you want money. GET a JOB. The democracts and republicans should stop using US tax payer dollars to support issues that are maligned at the voting booth and spin controlled in the mind controlled media. A notice to politicians is that if you seek to profit and do not care from whom AT least stay out of our GOVERNMENTS and WORKPLACES and BUSNIESSES. Move to another country that doesn’t care ABOUT the people. In addition the DEMS are not pressing for impeachment because they are (...)

AS I LAY DYING...THE LIMITED MEANING OF THE DEMOCRATS’ VICTORY
By : CHUCKMAN - Thursday November 9, 2006

November 9, 2006 AS I LAY DYING John Chuckman Sadly, little coming from America’s politics can fire my enthusiasm. During my lifetime, America has busied itself with the task of burying liberalism, reminding one of October’s frenetic squirrels hunting and burying acorns. The nation is pretty much at ease with ugly imperial government. Liberalism, and I mean liberalism in the broadest, richest sense of the word, is a topic of bathroom humor. We read and hear a great deal (...)

The New Democratic majority must restore the U.S. Constitution By Mary MacElveen November 9, 2006 In going through all 517 photos showing the reactions to many different races either won or lost, the ones showing Senator-elect Jon Tester were the ones that especially hit home. After all it was our test to see whether or not a common man can go on to represent the people he grew up amongst. He was the ‘tester’ to see anyone of us can run and go on to win a senate seat.

US NEWS NETWORKS WRONG

This is something I just noticed while visiting the CNN.com site. They show a tight race for the Senate. 49 to 49 seats. However, they show Independent chairs as 0. They are counting one independent as a Democrat. That Independent is Joe Lieberman. Who was booted from the Democratic party just a few months ago. Yes although he had been the Vice presidential candidate for Al Gore, they booted him. He had to run as an Independent. He is no longer technically a Democrat. Very interesting. (...)

The Democratic Victory: ‘It’s the people’s agenda, stupid’ By Mary MacElveen November 8, 2006 When Congresswoman, Nancy Pelosi the incoming Speaker of the House stated that impeachment was not on the table in relation to Bush, it angered most on the more liberal side of the Democratic Party including myself. Hindsight being what it is, it was smart of her to say that. In fact, if that had been our main platform, there would have been a sharp rebuke by the (...)

Vote Flipping in Webb Allen Senate Race in Virginia

My wife just called me from our polling place. We are in Northern VA, a blue enclave in a red state. This morning, as I posted earlier, I had difficulties in casting my vote on the machine. Well, she just visited the same polling place after work, and informs me that her vote for Jim Webb was flipped to Felix Allen TWICE. She never hit the VOTE screen until her vote finally registered for Webb, but is this what we’re up against? (FYI, she laughs at my conspiracy theories, and (...)

MD GOP Candidate Recruits Homeless to Pass Out Deceptive Flyers
By : Justin Rood - Tuesday November 7, 2006
Misleading flyers were handed out at several Maryland polling places by men and women recruited by the GOP governor’s campaign from out-of-state homeless shelters, the Washington Post reports. The flyers, given to voters in a heavily Democratic area, showed GOP gubernatorial candidate Bob Ehrlich as a Democrat: Erik Markle, one of the people handing out literature for Ehrlich, who is seeking reelection, and Steele, the current lieutenant governor who is campaigning to replace (...)

Numerous Problems In Houston Texas Including MACHINES BEING SWAPPED OUT!
By : Mugsy - Tuesday November 7, 2006
By 11am this morning here in Houston, The Houston Chronicle has already reported a number of election day issues with machines not working or displaying incorrect data. Most disturbing of all, a race I’ve been watching exceedingly closely, they swapped out TWO voting machines in Tom DeLay’s old district after voting had already begun. Voters across the Houston area today were already finding long lines and problems with electronic voting machines as they tried to cast their (...)

They are already screwing with the vote here in Missouri

I just listened to local radio and they had people calling in to report what is happening at polling locations all over the area. The folks from Kansas reported no problems. Missouri was a completely different story. Some of the problems: Voters at one polling location were given the wrong ballot. A woman who was running for office came to vote and saw that her name was not on the ballot. So she complained and they changed the ballot. Another voter asked what they were going to do about (...)

San Francisco Radio Station Accidentally Plays Political Ad Over Emergency Broadcast System
By : SFgate - Tuesday November 7, 2006
This is a test of the Emergency Alert System: Vote for Dick Mountjoy! In an apparent violation of FCC rules, conservative talk radio station KFBK 1530 AM in Sacramento transmitted a paid political advertisement to an unknown number of other stations in the area, using the federal Emergency Alert System (EAS), thus automatically forcing the ad onto the stations’ airwaves. This is according to a press release issued today by KDVS-FM, a non-commercial community station in Davis that (...)

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.

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 (...)
