What was, What is, and What’s Coming Next
By : David Glenn Cox - Sunday November 28, 2010
By David Glenn Cox Hindsight is 20/20, you can look back throughout history and choose any three events and the future becomes explained. The American Revolution 1776, the French Revolution 1789, the terror 1793 – Napoleon 1799. The American Revolution financed in part by France, helped to deplete the French treasury in what Churchill called, “the first world war.” The depleted treasury exacerbated the domestic miseries of the French people, while the idea of (...)

WARD CHURCHILL: THE LIE LIVES ON
By : David R. Hoffman, Pravda.Ru Legal Editor - Friday November 26, 2010
1 comment
Make no mistake about it: America’s so-called legal “system” is hopelessly and intransigently corrupt. In fact, if this “system” were beholden to its own laws, it would undoubtedly be guilty of fraud, extortion, obstruction of justice and conspiracy. Of course, this reality should be self-evident, considering that men like Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito, John Roberts and Anthony Kennedy preside at its summit—the United States Supreme (...)

Voter Empowerment - Not a New Party
By : William John Cox - Wednesday November 24, 2010
If nothing else, the election of 2010 has taught us that a “third” political party is not the answer. Like the two existing major parties, it too would simply become another political commodity to be purchased by the corporations and wealthy elite for their own purposes, rather than serving the interests of ordinary voters. Political salvation will come when the voters of every party decide to exercise, rather than dissipate, their power. Political parties have been around (...)

4.6 million dead Iraqi & Afghan infants but Oz ABC wouldn’t ask Hillary Clinton "Is the price worth it?"
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Saturday November 20, 2010
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently visited Australia in November 2010 but was not asked the key question about 4.6 million post-invasion under-5 infant deaths in Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan (UN data), specifically “Is the price worth it?” Clinton’s friend and predecessor as Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, had been asked the same question on CBS “60 Minutes” in 1996 (when dead Iraqi children totaled “only" 0.5 million) and (...)

Republican victories in US mid-term elections will cripple US & World action on man-made climate change
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Monday November 8, 2010
2 comments
Top climate scientists argue that the world must reach zero carbon dioxide (CO2) pollution by 2050 and that world leading annual per capita GHG pollution countries like the US and Australia must reduce to zero by 2020. The Republican victories in the mid-term Congressional elections (they now have a majority in the House of Representatives) are widely seen as a huge setback for the Cancun Climate Change Summit (Mexico, 2010) and for any effective US cutback on its enormous greenhouse gas (...)

The Youth Vote and the Election of 2012
By : William John Cox - Saturday November 6, 2010
In one of the most striking political comebacks in U.S. history, the Republican Party marched in lockstep to victory in the midterm elections and seized control of the House of Representatives and state houses across the nation. Republicans made a battle plan, they disciplined their troops, and the corporations paid for the ammunition. Unless the Democrats do something drastically differently during the next two years, the rich and powerful will cement their victory around the body of (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)
