War And Death of The American Dream

I make it easy for everyone to connect the dots and figure out what the media, politicians, and bankers don’t want you to know. The Global Elite is a toxic cancer that means to bury out freedoms and liberties once and for all so that they can rule the world. Please check out this book (...)

The Lies of Bernard-Henri Lévy By Doug Ireland (In these times)
By : Joëlle - Thursday March 16, 2006
Bernard-Henri Lévy is so ubiquitous in France’s media that he is universally referred to as BHL. But in Parisian intellectual and journalistic circles he is known by the moniker BHV-the French department store that sells anything and everything. BHL had hoped to sell himself to the United States with American Vertigo, in which he travels the United States “in the footsteps of Tocqueville.” No one is buying. American Vertigo reminds me of that old movie, If It’s (...)

World War Order vs. Fair World Order
By : Solve et Coagula - Friday March 3, 2006
"During a meeting in Bulgaria, the Master Peter Deunov asked the following question: ‘In your view, what is the difference between the old teaching and the new?’ As nobody gave the right answer, the Master said: ‘The old teaching shows us how to take, and the new one teaches us how to give.’ There it is, so simple and clear... although it takes a great deal of explanation, of course, for people to understand what giving and taking mean in all areas of life.

But Yale was front and center, because the statue that’s in front of the C.I.A. is Nathan Hail. Nathan Hail’s statue that they copied that from appears in front of Connecticut Hall at Yale in New Haven. So, if you go back to the revolution you have Yale and the Secret Service.

by Dissent! and Autonomedia Bob Geldof’s appointment as an advisor to the Conservative party has provoked a reassessment of the momentous week last summer when the G8 met in Gleneagles. This reassessment is aided by the timely publication of a new book full of first hand accounts by those more interested in shutting the G8 down than lobbying it. David Watts, one of the books editors, commented: "There seems to be a growing sense of disillusionment with the legacy of the Live8 (...)

« Just think of me as your new guidance counselor ... Or just think Mr. Jefferson’s Answer to The Friend of Peace (1816) » By Greg Moses In homage to the Nobel Prize for Literature, Harold Pinter’s acceptance speech testifies to gifts of inspiration; hints of realms apart within; callings to craft that expose writers to tempestuous solitudes where lines between truth and unreality are not marked out in advance, where things press against each other in duality, both untrue and (...)

From Sir Henry Neville AKA Shakespeare Bush Lies

To my kind and gentle reader, please be patient while I conjure the spirit of Shakespeare, to call Bush a liar.

It was the beginning of November and a new book was just released titled ’The Truth Will Out’ claiming that Shakespeare was Sir Henry Neville . One of the authors is named Rubinstein and a search of his background associates him with the Intelligent design (...)

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.

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 (...)
