With the melting of the ice after eight months, the Anglo-Dutch oil giant is set to enter a crucial (...)

Oily Corrupt Cabal
By : benamarine - Tuesday April 11, 2006
The Bush Cabal’s oily plan is in full effect, when Jr. and his corrupt cabal stole power in 2000 — in the US gasoline was $1.21 per gallon, today it’s at $2.65 per gallon and rising. Look for sweet light crude to sell at $80.00 per barrel and gasoline at $3.50 per gallon come June. With the help of the events on 9/11 — Dickie’s secret energy plan has fallen right in place: Former Unocal employee, Hamid Karzai, became the President of Afghanistan and one of (...)

This is a brief and fanciful timeline predicting the future of oil. 2006: The U.S. attacks Iran and secures its oil and natural gas supplies. For the next decade, Europe and Japan give their tacit approval in exchange for a share of oil. 2009: The U.S. starts angling for Venezuela’s oil, using the same pretext of national security it used against Iraq and is currently using against Iran. 2012: The U.S. invades Venezuela and secures its oil supplies. 2015: China and India demand a (...)

Burst Oil Pipeline Causes ’Catastrophe’ in Alaska by Andrew Gumbel
By : JoŽlle - Wednesday March 15, 2006
Published on Tuesday, March 14, 2006 by the Independent / UK A burst pipeline in Alaska’s North Slope has caused the Arctic region’s worst oil spill, spreading more than 250,000 gallons of crude oil over an area used by caribou herds and prompting environmentalists again to question the Bush administration’s drive for more oil exploration there. The leak was first spotted by a British Petroleum worker 11 days ago, and was reported to have been plugged a few days later. (...)

The Bush Administration’s Great State of the Union Ethanol Scam

Did Congress and the Senate "Day Trade" Ethanol on the day of the State of the Union address and rip-off Americans the following morning by selling it off? It certainly looks as though the marriage between the White House, Senate and Congressional leadership and Wall Street has been exposed. A side note: On January 18, 2006, Rep. Louise Slaughter stated that she had information relating to Rep. Tom DeLay and Rep. Bill Frist having "day-traders" working out of their offices. She said that (...)

The Permanent Energy Crisis

by Michael T. Klare President Bush’s State of the Union comment that the United States is "addicted to oil" can be read as pure political opportunism. With ever more Americans expressing anxiety about high oil prices, freakish weather patterns, and abiding American ties to unsavory foreign oil potentates, it is hardly surprising that Bush sought to portray himself as an advocate of the development of alternative energy systems. But there is another, more ominous way to read his (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy.

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 (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)
