Osama’s Surprise Osama bin Laden as Global Shock Jock
By : Tom Engelhardt - Monday November 1, 2004
by Tom Engelhardt Looked at realistically Osama bin Laden’s intervention in our presidential election was undoubtedly an act of immediate organizational weakness, not strength. Had he had been capable of orchestrating the bringing down of another American tower or its equivalent, he certainly would have done so, but it was no less ingenious for that. His last major intervention, his self-scripted action-adventure film in real time, The Humiliation of America, cost his organization (...)

Cherie Blair lambasts Bush
By : Tisha Steyn - Monday November 1, 2004

Blair, a lawyer on a lecture tour of the United States, was condemned by supporters of the US President after a speech to Harvard law students in Massachusetts which contained a stinging rebuke to Bush, the Scotland on Sunday newspaper reported on its (...)

By Andrew Buncombe in Washington and Francis Elliott Tony Blair has sent one of his closest advisers on a secret peace mission to mend relations with John Kerry, the United States presidential challenger, The Independent on Sunday can reveal. News of the confidential meeting comes as the campaign enters its final 48 hours, with the candidates running neck and neck.

Bin Laden dancing to Bush’s tune
By : TEHRAN - Monday November 1, 2004
TEHRAN (MNA) — Only four days before the U.S. presidential election, suddenly a suspicious tape of Osama bin Laden is mysteriously “dropped off” at the Aljazeera office in Pakistan, warning of another September 11. As the Republicans have been dogged by criticism of the futile attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq, the disappearance of hundreds of tons of explosives in Iraq, and rising speculation about the possibility of vote-rigging, the airing of the videotape by the (...)

OSAMA’S ’GIFT’ FOR BUSH BACKFIRES IN POLLS
By : Anthony Harwood - Monday November 1, 2004
by Anthony Harwood In Boston GEORGE Bush and John Kerry were tied in polls last night, suggesting Osama bin Laden’s terror tape had not swung voters. One Republican strategist labelled the tape "a little gift" for Mr Bush for focussing voters’ minds on terrorism - the party’s strongest issue. "Anything that makes people nervous about their personal safety helps Bush," he said. But polls yesterday put support for the rivals at 46 per cent each - the same as last (...)

Post-Election Sticker Shock
By : NYTimes - Monday November 1, 2004
It’s not too soon to talk about the problems the winner of Tuesday’s election will face. One of the biggest is the hemorrhaging cost of the war in Iraq. The Bush administration, which got an early $25 billion down payment for the new fiscal year with the certainty of asking for more, has left the 2005 war budget’s bottom line conveniently blank until after the voters have spoken. But the estimates already circulating say that the president will have to ask for as much as (...)

Why Bush will restart the draft if re-elected
By : Sen. Tom Harkin - Monday November 1, 2004
7 comments
A major terrorist attack could easily serve as the pretext for setting the draft in motion. By Sen. Tom Harkin President George W. Bush may or may not have a secret plan to reinstate the draft. But this is besides the point. The deteriorating facts on the ground in Iraq, plus the Bush doctrine of acting pre-emptively and unilaterally against hostile regimes, will soon leave him no choice. If Bush is re-elected, he will have to restart the draft. Indeed, Bush has already imposed stage one (...)

Global Eye : Hysterica Passio
By : Chris Floyd - Monday November 1, 2004
By Chris Floyd Now we come at last to the heart of darkness. Now we know, from their own words, that the Bush Regime is a cult — a cult whose god is Power, whose adherents believe that they alone control reality, that indeed they create the world anew with each act of their iron will. And the goal of this will — undergirded by the cult’s supreme virtues of war, fury and blind faith — is likewise openly declared: "Empire." You think this is an exaggeration? Then heed (...)

Dear America, Now that John Kerry has demonstrated himself to the American people as rational and statesmanlike leader, especially compared to the histrionic, contorted and ugly evasions evinced by President Bush during the three debates that were his to loose, hopefully we have embarked on a journey that will culminate in a change of government in the USA. Just as the rest of the world sits amazed at the malaise that has seized America since Bush took office and which has manifested (...)

Bush ’most hated’ American leader
By : news - Monday November 1, 2004
BRITISH spy novelist John Le Carre has branded US President George W. Bush America’s most "universally hated" leader and urged voters to kick him out of office next month. The author of global best sellers such as The Spy Who Came In From the Cold and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy launched the stinging attack on the US leader and his war in Iraq in an editorial in the Los Angeles Times.

The ’sad story’ of the current employment picture 4.2 million jobs below normal
By : EPI - Monday November 1, 2004
The unprecedented loss of payroll jobs 42 months after the start of the last recession is well known. However, it has been argued that the two surveys of employment conditions (the payroll survey and the household survey) tell conflicting stories.1 Some have claimed that the household survey paints a much more favorable employment picture. Last spring, however, two economists at the Cleveland Federal Reserve issued a study entitled "Employment Surveys Are Telling the Same (Sad) Story."2 (...)

Less Cash in Their Pockets Trends in Incomes, Wages, Taxes, and Health Spending of Middle-Income Families, 2000-03
By : EPI - Monday November 1, 2004
by Lawrence Mishel, Michael Ettlinger, and Elise Gould The economic well-being of middle-income families has changed significantly over the last few years, largely as a result of three important dynamics. First, the recession that started in March 2001 was followed by an unusually long period-two and a half years-of job losses, despite an increase in output of goods and services. Although employment has grown since September 2003, it has not done so at a sufficient rate to diminish the (...)

Bush’s War Against the Military
By : Ian Williams - Sunday October 31, 2004
By Ian Williams Bush has failed the military on almost every level - marking the difference between being militaristic and pro-military. George W. Bush so often invokes his nominal title of "commander in chief" at veterans’ rallies, on military bases and during presidential debates that he now appears like some latter-day caudillo. But his claims to be a commander of any kind in any serious way are a figment of his imagination. Discounting that he sent American troops into Iraq on (...)

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

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 (...)

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 (...)
