Cheney’s Avalanche of Lies
By : William Rivers Pitt - Thursday October 7, 2004
2 comments
By William Rivers Pitt "The vice president, I’m surprised to hear him talk about records. When he was one of 435 members of the United States House, he was one of 10 to vote against Head Start, one of four to vote against banning plastic weapons that can pass through metal detectors. He voted against the Department of Education. He voted against funding for Meals on Wheels for seniors. He voted against a holiday for Martin Luther King. He voted against a resolution calling for the (...)

It Was a Rout
By : William Rivers Pitt - Tuesday October 5, 2004
By William Rivers Pitt "Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier!" Howard Cosell There was a President on that stage in Florida on Thursday night, and his name was not George. This was supposed to be the debate that played to the strengths of Bush and his administration. Foreign policy in general and the protection of the United States from terrorism in particular, according to all the polls and every talking head within earshot, are the areas where George (...)

By Touching on Bush’s Ambivalent Relations with His Father, Kerry Exposed His Delusions about Iraq by Sidney Blumenthal After months of flawless execution in a well-orchestrated campaign, President Bush had to stand alone in an unpredictable debate. He had traveled the country, appearing before adoring pre-selected crowds, delivered a carefully crafted acceptance speech before his convention, and approved tens of millions of dollars in TV commercials to belittle his opponent. In the (...)

Powell Regrets Iraq Weapons Claim for War
By : BARRY SCHWEID - Monday October 4, 2004
By BARRY SCHWEID WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Colin Powell ventured into the thick of the presidential campaign Friday by challenging John Kerry’s attacks on President Bush’s leadership of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. At a news conference in Atlanta, Powell disagreed with the Kerry’s contention in Thursday night’s presidential debate that Bush missed an opportunity to capture terrorist leader Osama bin Laden. He also dismissed the Democratic (...)

More Troops to Iraq ...After the Election
By : RAY McGOVERN - Friday October 1, 2004
By RAY McGOVERN Former CIA Analyst It’s not an "if." It’s a "when." Pentagon officials have indicated that they plan to send as many as 15,000 additional troops during the first four months of 2005, and the President George W. Bush continues to insist "we will stay the course" until Iraq is stabilized. (I do wish his advisers would provide a different vocabulary so that those of us steeped in the mistakes regarding Vietnam could be spared painful flashbacks.) Where will the (...)

Bush Ignored Warnings On Iraq, NY Times Says
By : WASHINGTON - Friday October 1, 2004
1 comment
U.S. President George W. Bush was warned in two intelligence reports before he invaded Iraq that his war could produce a chaotic guerrilla conflict involving terrorists. Yet, critics say, Mr. Bush didn’t use the information to alter his policy or plan for escalating bloodshed that’s threatening chances for democratic elections in Iraq in January. A senior U.S. intelligence official was also quoted this week as saying Mr. Bush disregarded high-level warnings that a war (...)

By WAYNE MADSEN My sister just found my 80 year old mother late this morning sitting in a state of shock in a Red Cross church evacuation shelter in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Wiith her were some of her neighbors, along with a number of the regular street derelict residents of the facility. She was forcibly evacuated yesterday afternoon with only minutes warning and only enough time to grab her medications, cell phone, and phone charger.

Top Bush officials clash over Iraq election
By : Vicki Allen - Sunday September 26, 2004
1 comment
By Vicki Allen WASHINGTON - Iraq’s elections should be nationwide, a top Bush administration official has said, clashing publicly with Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s suggestion that voting might not take place in the most violent areas. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage said the elections scheduled for January will not be perfect, but they should encompass the entire country. Rumsfeld also appeared to back away from his outspoken remarks on Thursday that while (...)

The bubble boy Bush lives in a world immune from the realities of Iraq.
By : Sidney Blumenthal - Saturday September 25, 2004
By Sidney Blumenthal The news is grim, but the president is "optimistic." The intelligence is sobering, but he tosses aside "pessimistic predictions." His opponent says he has "no credibility," but the president replies that it is his rival who is "twisting in the wind." The secretary general of the United Nations speaks of the "rule of law," but Bush talks before a mute General Assembly of "a new definition of security." Between the rhetoric and the reality lies the campaign. A reliable (...)

by Robert Thompson We have at last watched this brilliant film, which, as my wife has since said, should be compulsory viewing for every single voter in the U.S.A., and I hope that as many of you as possible have seen it. Having been made aware by so many of you of the deliberate misinformation spread across the U.S.A. by media subject to the control of the neo-cons, and their failure to tell the public so much of what goes on in the word, we obviously do not know how much was known on (...)

Kerry and Progressive Party Building
By : Ted Glick - Thursday September 23, 2004
by Ted Glick Peter Camejo was the first one I heard put it out, back in April: "Kerry will do what Bush wants to do better." In other words, Kerry and the Democrats are the greater evil, not the Republicans which, followed to its logical conclusion, means that Camejo hopes that Bush/Cheney will win re-election. Since that time I’ve heard and seen others put forward this same point of view. There’s not a lot of them on the Left but they’re out there. The Counterpunch (...)

Murderous barbaric butchers betray cause by Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey So, Eugene Armstrong has been beheaded. The tape has been sent to the Internet. A victory for senselessness, idiocy, butchery, cruelty, mindless violence, perpetrated by the legions of Baal. What is the difference between slitting the throat of an American contractor and blasting away the limbs of an Iraqi child with a cluster bomb? What is the difference between killing an American civilian and killing an Iraqi (...)

Letters from France: Divided by a single language
By : Robert Thompson - Saturday September 18, 2004
3 comments
by Robert Thompson It is said that the late Sir Winston Churchill was the first to make the comment that the U.S.A. and Britain were divided by a single language, and listening to spokesmen for the present administration in the U.S.A. this becomes more and more evident as the election campaign rolls on on your side of the Atlantic. It seems almost comic when one has to learn that what you call "diapers" are the ordinary British "nappies", or that your "sidewalk’ is the British (...)

Far graver than Vietnam
By : Sidney Blumenthal - Friday September 17, 2004
Most senior US military officers now believe the war on Iraq has turned into a disaster on an unprecedented scale by Sidney Blumenthal ’Bring them on!" President Bush challenged the early Iraqi insurgency in July of last year. Since then, 812 American soldiers have been killed and 6,290 wounded, according to the Pentagon. Almost every day, in campaign speeches, Bush speaks with bravado about how he is "winning" in Iraq. "Our strategy is succeeding," he boasted to the National Guard (...)

When the Rabbits Get a Gun
By : William Rivers Pitt - Wednesday September 15, 2004

By William Rivers Pitt This is the comforting fiction: Osama bin Laden is a monster who sprang whole from the fetid mire. He had no childhood, no influences, no education, no experiences to form his view of the world. He did not exist, and then he did, a vessel into which the universe poured the essence of evil. It is a simple, straightforward story of a man who hates freedom and kills for the pure joy of feeling innocent blood drip from his fingers. This is the fairy tale by which (...)

ANOTHER LOOK AT 9-11 MORE PNAC PLOTTING?
By : Ted Lang - Wednesday September 15, 2004
By: Ted Lang Increasingly, evidence continues to mount against our own government. Parts of what were formerly viewed as disjointed, confusing and disconnected pieces of a puzzle are beginning to fall into place. The Abu Ghraib prison torture scandal was bad enough, but the Bush administration’s cover-up is much worse. The same can be said for the 9-11 Commission that never really addressed how it was possible for our skies to be so vulnerable on that day. We are to believe that nary (...)

When The Fiends Cry, "Kill!"

By Sheila Samples 09/06/04 "ICH" — ...So I’m sitting here with a sack over my head, trying to come to grips with reality. Facts just don’t compute anymore. For example, it’s a fact that on Sept 7 the New York Yankees turned in the worst loss in their entire century of kicking baseball ass. It’s a fact that the Yanks lost 22-0 to the Cleveland Indians — but is it logical? Believable? Is it reasonable? My friend Bernie says stuff happens, even if only (...)

by Robert Thompson These comments are addressed above all to those among you who follow Judaism, Christianity or Islam, but it might be useful for others to ponder on the points raised. At the end of June, when I wrote on the subject of the "Misappropriation of Christianity (or of any other religion)", I ended with the advice "Above all, pray for guidance to our loving, compassionate and merciful God, who cannot be served with evil actions". This has since become even more urgent, and we (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream

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" (...)

At first glance, the results of America’s 2012 election appear to be a triumph for social, racial, and economic justice and progress in the United States: California voters passed a proposition requiring the rich to shoulder their fair share of the tax burden; Two states, Colorado and Washington, legalized the recreational use of marijuana, while Massachusetts approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes; Washington and two other states, Maine and Maryland, legalized same-sex (...)

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

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. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! 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. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% 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 (...)
