Thinking of Emigration...

...anyone thinking of emigrating, please make sure wherever you go is at least 400 feet above sea level - otherwise you may find yourself swimming in a few years considering the powers that still be. What a cold, dark, heartless day this has become. Dan

Kerry ’concedes defeat’
By : WASHINGTON - Wednesday November 3, 2004
48 comments
WASHINGTON President George Bush has won a second term as US president after the Democratic challenger, John Kerry, today called him to concede defeat in the bitterly-contested race for the White House, the Associated Press has reported. Mr Bush has won a mandate to govern a divided and anxious nation, his promise of steady, strong wartime leadership trumping Mr Kerry’s fresh-start approach to Iraq and joblessness. After a long, tense night of vote counting, Mr Kerry called (...)

by Joshua Breitbart Ohio voter groups have called for a statewide walkout and protest in Columbus as the US presidential election hinges on thousands of provisional ballots and claims of disenfranchisement. After a day of huge turnout and widespread reports of voting irregularities [1 | 2 | 3] the polls closed in Ohio with a margin of fewer than 150,000 votes separating Bush and Kerry out of more than 5 million cast. Polls stayed open late into the night to accommodate people who waited (...)

Osama endorses Bush
By : Gene Messick - Wednesday November 3, 2004
1 comment
by Gene Messick "For bin Laden, the Bush Administration’s massive ignorance about Islam and what drives al-Qaeda has worked greatly to his advantage. Bush cannot imagine how to win the hearts and minds of Iraqis, other than promise them "democracy". He will have to continue blowing up a major portion of Iraq before it can be made "secure" for elections." Why did Osama bin Laden emerge from two years of silence on the eve of American’s closest 2004 elections? Was it just to (...)

By Pepe Escobar "We will export death and violence to the four corners of the Earth in defense of our great nation." George W Bush in Bob Woodward’s Plan of Attack It all boils down to Iraq. Will the majority of Americans reject George W Bush because of his defining moment - launching an indefensible preemptive war?

GOP doing all it can to keep minorities from voting
By : Jesse Jackson - Wednesday November 3, 2004
BY JESSE JACKSON A record minority vote will turn out today, I predict, the product of an effervescent mobilization to express the vote. But that same minority community is now witnessing a despicable drive to suppress that very same vote. President Bush, having waged the most negative campaign by any incumbent president in memory, is presiding over a systematic effort to stop African Americans, Latinos and Native Americans from voting. The mobilization to express the vote is a new small (...)

On the fourth of July each year, the American people are prompted to celebrate the war exploits of the US empire, overlooking the fact that the USA lost many of its wars, including its first war against the so-called Barbary Coast pirates of North Africa and its most recent (...)

Also-ran Nader can still decide race
By : Gary Younge - Tuesday November 2, 2004
by Gary Younge in Akron, Ohio The independent candidate, Ralph Nader, limped into the home stretch of his presidential campaign yesterday, with barely 1% of voters behind him. Despite a huge collapse in support compared to 2000 and little organisation on the ground, Mr Nader’s meagre showing could still prove a decisive factor in a tight race. "The reality is the Nader factor is arguably still there," Chris Kofinis, senior adviser to the anti-Nader group TheNaderFactor.com told the (...)

By JOANN WYPIJEWSKI History and its symbols having been central in conceptualizing the demonstration for jobs, peace and human needs that took place at the Lincoln Memorial on a crisp afternoon this past October 17, it is worth casting the mind back a bit before proceeding with our story of that event, recalling first the organizational finesse and political discipline of this latest demonstration’s most famous forebear (depicted on its fliers and literature), the 1963 March on (...)

CIA looks for signals in Bin Laden video

by Tony Allen-Mills, Columbus, Ohio UNRELEASED portions of a new videotape from Osama Bin Laden were being examined by American intelligence officials yesterday as election campaign strategists vowed to prevent the Al-Qaeda leader’s surprise re-emergence from disrupting the final two days of the presidential race.

Maureen Dowd: Will Osama help Bush?

by Maureen Dowd WASHINGTON Some people thought the October surprise would be the president producing Osama. Instead, it was Osama producing yet another video taunting the president and lecturing America. After bin Laden’s pre-election commentary from his anchor desk at a secure, undisclosed location, many TV chatterers and Republicans postulated that the evildoer’s campaign intrusion would help the president. O.B.L., they said, might re-elect W. They follow the Bush (...)

Bush Win Would Mean Dark Times

World Would Perceive Support For Preemptive War by Helen Thomas The presidential election on Tuesday is one of the most crucial in American history. There are many reasons — in foreign policy and on the domestic front — why President George W. Bush should not be reelected. Among them is the dominance of the radical right in his advisory councils, who are taking the United States down the wrong road at the start of the 21st century. The road could lead to more mindless wars (...)

If You Are a True Conservative You Must Reject Bush
By : William Hare - Monday November 1, 2004
2 comments
By William Hare The word conservative is derived from conserve. To conserve is to behave prudently. In a political context the word conservative is linked to tradition, to move with caution, operating in lockstep with tried and true propositions and fundamental concepts whose validity have been proven over time. This form of traditionalism has been jettisoned by the new wave of Bush so-called conservatives. Bush initially ran for the presidency touting himself as a “compassionate (...)

Vote For A Man, Not A Puppet

by Charley Reese Americans should realize that if they vote for President Bush’s re-election, they are really voting for the architects of war - Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz and the rest of that cabal of neoconservative ideologues and their corporate backers. I have sadly come to the conclusion that President Bush is merely a frontman, an empty suit, who is manipulated by the people in his administration. Bush has the most dangerously simplistic view of the world of (...)

Central Tabulating Machines Connected to Modems

New Info proves that Central Tabulating Computers have modems connected and are open to manipulation. ie- all this stuff about vote challengers is just a diversion, because one person can change the state total from their home computer. Take the day off of work to help save our country. Yeah sure conspiracy nuts- they can’t steal it- wrong. We now have evidence that certainly looks like altering a computerized voting system during a real election, and it happened just six weeks ago. (...)

My latest prediction: That Bush will "win" and then be impeached — if not run out of town on a rail
By : Jane Stillwater - Monday November 1, 2004
by Jane Stillwater Someone just asked me what my latest prediction is. "As of today, who do you think will win on Tuesday?" My prediction is this: George Bush will win. Why? No-brainer! Even as we speak, members of the George Bush fan club who are willing to do ANYTHING to see that their guy wins have been embedded in positions of influence in every electoral board, registrar of voters’ office and secretary of state staff in America. I predict that we will see innumerable election (...)

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" (...)

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 (...)

PART I PART III PART IV Several years ago, a young lady came into the college where I was teaching to inquire about a full-time instructor’s position in the sociology department.

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

ONE SOLITARY LIFE, PART TWO

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 DEMOCRACY ENDURE?

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.

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 (...)
