Lies and Cover-Ups are not ’Being in Denial’
By : AgoraVox - Tuesday October 3, 2006
4 comments
The right wing of the Republican Party has a problem with the truth. The American press corps has an addiction to euphemisms. Bob Woodward called his book "State of Denial." The press around the book raises the question of whether President George W. Bush and his highest officials-Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Condi Rice- are unable to face the truth ("in denial"). Yet the sort of anecdote Woodward tells, and the new information surfacing on Tenet’s briefing of Rice and (...)

Poets for Palestine
By : Remi Kanazi - Thursday September 28, 2006
Al Jisser is accepting submissions for its upcoming book: Poets for Palestine. The concept of this book was inspired by two spoken word shows held at The Bridge art gallery in Manhattan. The first show, the Poetic Injustice Poetry Show, took place in conjunction with the display of the Made in Palestine art exhibition. Excited by the intensity and effectiveness of spoken word, The Bridge brought back the Poetic Injustice Poetry Show for a second night. It was held during an equally moving (...)

THE TRUE JUDAS Published in Pravda.Ru on 06/12/06 The popularity of Dan Brown’s novel The Da Vinci Code has also renewed interest in the Gnostic Gospels, the “heretical” texts that were banned from the traditional Bible and considered lost until copies were discovered in the Egyptian desert in 1945. Thanks largely to passages in the Gospel of Phillip, The Da Vinci Code has raised intriguing questions about the relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene. Yet lost in (...)

Dreams Of Sand... He awoke to heat and thirst and pain, Not sure where he was in the silence, Lying torn on burning sands, Seeing the cloudless blue sky waver and shimmer. Rolling over with a groan, He shakily got his feet under him, Unsteady and drenched in sweat that steamed away instantly. He raised a hand to shield his eyes, All the world was sand unbearably bright, A scorpion crawled by nearly at his feet, He licked his cracked and bleeding lips and remembered what it was, Just in (...)

(Based on an old Civil War Poem,from the Confederate side) In Fallujah, where we fell, there nothing grows. Between the ruins,row on row a marked disgrace. And in the sky the vultures,squawking,darkly fly, scarce heard amid the dust below. We are the dead. Short days ago we lived and thrived, saw sunrise glow, loved,embraced, and now we lie in Fallujah,where we fell. We took the quarrel to the foe! to them from ghostly hands we threw the curse of pure defeat,yes,that we cried... And (...)

Racist UK-US democratic tyranny, "free market", "drug patent rights" & African HIV/AIDS catastrophe
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Wednesday May 10, 2006
6 comments
Of course, unlike the situation in the 19th century, the democratic West is now politically correct (PC) and eschews explicit racism. Kurtz’s assertion of "exterminate all the brutes" in Joseph Conrad’s African novel "Heart of Darkness" was acceptable back in circa 1900 when it was first published in an explicitly racist Britain. Western intellectuals armed with Darwin’s "Origin of Species" justified racist colonial impositions in terms of "survival of the fittest" (i.e. (...)

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

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. 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 (...)
