NASA photo analyst: Bush wore a device during debate
By : Kevin Berger - Friday October 29, 2004
2 comments
Oct. 29, 2004 | George W. Bush tried to laugh off the bulge. "I don’t know what that is," he said on "Good Morning America" on Wednesday, referring to the infamous protrusion beneath his jacket during the presidential debates. "I’m embarrassed to say it’s a poorly tailored shirt." Dr. Robert M. Nelson, however, was not laughing. He knew the president was not telling the truth. And Nelson is neither conspiracy theorist nor midnight blogger. He’s a senior research (...)

Greens Call the Survival of the U.S. Constitution a Missing Issue of the 2004 Election OCTOBER 28, 2004 WASHINGTON — October 28 — Green Party candidates and leaders have called the sustained assault on the U.S. Constitution over the past decade one of the missing issues of the 2004 election year.

Study: Terror Warnings Up Approval Ratings
By : WILLIAM KATES - Friday October 29, 2004
By WILLIAM KATES SYRACUSE, N.Y. — When the government issues a terror warning, the president’s approval rating increases an average of nearly three points, a Cornell University sociologist says. "The social theories predict it, and anecdotally we know it to be true. Now we have statistical science to confirm it," said Robb Willer, assistant director of Cornell’s Sociology and Small Groups Laboratory. On average, a terror warning prompted a 2.75 point increase in (...)

The Monday Interview: Former senator and twice-failed presidential candidate By Andrew Buncombe in Washington Gary Hart, the former senator and presidential candidate, has been around politics for a long time. That experience is telling him that John Kerry is going to win the US presidential election when America goes to the polls one week tomorrow.

Blair admits - yes, I’ve met Kerry

AFTER months of embarrassed silence over links with US Democrats, Downing Street finally admitted yesterday that Tony Blair had twice met John Kerry, who is challenging the Prime Minister’s war ally President Bush for the Oval Office. The disclosure suggests that Mr Blair may be hedging his bets on the outcome of the US elections. Previously the Government has raised no objection to claims, repeated on both sides of the Atlantic, that Mr Blair had “never met” the (...)

Robert Thompson As I have done in previous essays, I feel it appropriate to preface my remarks by making it clear that I write as a committed practising Catholic Christian, and by stressing that I am always shocked and upset by the misuse of religion as a cover for, or in pursuit of, material and/or political gain. On Tuesday night, my wife and I watched with growing fear and horror a television report on "Arte" (the Franco-German channel) on the religiosity of Mr George W. Bush. If the (...)

Shattered future Fiancées are Iraq’s forgotten survivors

By Katya Cengel kcengel@courier-journal.com More than 1,000 men and women from the U.S. military, the majority of them Army, have been killed since the war in Iraq began in March 2003. The wives and husbands, or parents, of the fallen are usually offered flags, medals and counseling. Fiancées often aren’t even notified. Sometimes the Army doesn’t even know they exist. Unless a soldier has made a point of listing a fiancée on an emergency data card, this loved one is (...)

Marine returns from Iraq to emotional ruin, suicide

By Associated Press Jeffrey Lucey was just an ordinary kid from small-town America. He grew up loving his parents, his high school sweetheart and backyard whiffle ball games in this quiet, picturesque community bordering the Quabbin Reservoir. Even his decision to enlist in the Marine Reserves in 1999 was run-of-the-mill, uncluttered by the anxious sense of patriotism that inspired many others to join the military after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. ``He just wanted (...)

Maimed in Iraq, then mistreated, neglected, and hidden in America

by Frederick Sweet Combat veterans wounded in Iraq were left waiting weeks and even months for proper medical attention at military bases. According to an officer, their living conditions were so unacceptable for injured soldiers he said they "were being treated like dogs." Then the Pentagon underreported the number wounded. The Bush administration, referring to veterans of the war in Iraq, told a House panel that they would avoid last year’s "mistakes" of leaving sick and injured (...)

(NYT Photo/Ruth Fremson) WASHINGTON - A new television ad sponsored by U.S. veterans strongly questions President Bush’s case for war in Iraq, but the group behind it said on Wednesday the spot was not meant to benefit either presidential candidate. First aired hours before the last presidential debate between Republican Bush and Democratic Sen. John Kerry, the ad shows a U.S. Iraq war veteran talking about the (...)

Bush and Cheney seem to be following Rumsfeld in his creativement faux mea culpa. by Michael Berglin The administration is trying to pass off a faux mea culpa in telling the US and the world that the intel on Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction was bogus.

by PHILIP GOUREVITCH Despite a pre-debate “memorandum of understanding” between the Bush campaign and the Kerry campaign that there would be no televised “cutaways” or reaction shots, more than sixty-two million Americans watched George W. Bush appear to come unglued while hearing, for the first time, John Kerry’s forceful voice of opposition. Bush’s face betrayed him on the very first cutaway. He had insisted that the focus of his initial encounter (...)

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
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 (...)

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 (...)
