A Good Story (tags)

"From 200 years of American history, we have learned nothing is impossible." (Reagan) Occasionally this president replaced reality with his fictions. "The world changed every time a new technique of storytelling was intented." (Brian Ferren)

So Many Herrings, So Little Time (tags)

To fish or not to fish, that is the question in this soon-to-end Rovian era. Just know this: If it looks easy to catch, then there is a catch. For more details about how to spot a keeper from a cropper, read on.

Popsicle Pathology (tags)

This is not even Pop culture, its Popsicle culture. Regurgitated to meet the demands of a reality-based celebrity-obsessed cultural cesspool that defies the notion of depth. Andy Warhol's theory of fifteen-minute fame was conceived in a pre-ADD mind-set. Who can even tolerate fifteen minutes without being bored to death or achingly distracted? Unless, like with Arnie and Maria, our force-fed celebrity fix is constructed from disposable, non-biodegradable plastic.

Kerry the Neocon? (tags)

Despite the ways Kerry and his supporters might want to spin it, the Democratic nominee--like President Bush--is a militarist and a unilateralist quite willing to undermine the authority of the United Nations in order to assert American hegemony in that oil-rich region.

Resurrection of Care at Bohemian Grove (tags)

Bohemian Grove in rural Sonoma Country, California is where the Manhattan Project was conceived. So were many other bad things. Ostensibly a retreat for the U.S. elite, the Grove is where the Strangeloves meet the globalizers, and the CEOs hang out with the Bushes. This is a report from the July 18, 2004 protest, where we countered in a creative way.

Racial Accountability (tags)

In this world, there are many races, and many people who are of mixed race. Still, how you act is always going to be construed as a part of your culture.

How to defeat Bushism in 2004. (tags)

The defeat of Bush will require an international effort.

Where Can Liberals Go to Get Respect? (tags)

Libertarian logic is circular -- If something isn't working, the solution is always the same: We need even freer markets and even less regulation -- without a mystical faith in free markets, their arguments fall apart.

A LibCon view of Same Sex Marriages (tags)

The conservative in me wonders: If equal rights can be assured by civil union, why are some gays pushing so hard for the word marriage?

Michael Powell: Up in Flames (tags)

Poor, poor, pitiful Michael Powell. His term as chairman of the Federal Communications Commission was supposed to be easy. He thought that like FCC chairs before him, his job was to jet around the country meeting at swank resorts with the CEOs of major media companies, take some notes and then quietly implement their sweeping agenda for loosening the last significant constraints on media consolidation in the United States.

My Obsession with Jews (tags)

Now and then I get letters and e-mail messages asking why I am so "obsessed" with Jews and Israel. The question amuses me. It would be one thing if I often wrote about Mali, or Honduras, or Borneo, or any other nation or country most people remember only as a name from geography class.

Antonio Negri in Argentina (tags)

Due to the visit of Antonio Negri to our country, we introduce some articles of debate and polemic with Negri's ideas that were published along the past few years in the magazine Estrategia Internacional.

Universal fascism, freedom betrayed: What is Mr. Bush doing in your name? (tags)

In every age...the ultimate sources of war are the beliefs of those in power: their idea about what is of most fundamental importance and may therefore ultimately be worth a war. -- Evan Luard,

Proof that Jews have always controlled at least 85% of the U.S. media. (tags)

Listed below are the Big 8 Monolithic U.S. Media Conglomerates that control the minds of Americans. This article explains how the U.S. media have propagandized and conned their American subjects into supporting war on any and all Arab countries for the express benefit of Israel and the oil companies.

A Vast Right-Wing Cry of Treason (tags)

Ann Coulter, the right wing's dial-900 girl—a rail-thin, chain-smoking, hard-drinking, big-eyed leggy blonde who winkingly serves up X-rated ideological smut on liberals—is at it again. "Whenever the nation is under attack, from within or without, liberals side with the enemy," Coulter writes—or sneers—in Treason, her follow-up effort to the best-selling Slander. Like its predecessor, Treason sits atop the best-seller charts, riding higher than one of Coulter's signature miniskirts.

A Diplomat's Undiplomatic Truth: They Lied (tags)

They may have finally found the smoking gun that nails the culprit responsible for the Iraq war. Unfortunately, the incriminating evidence wasn't left in one of Saddam Hussein's palaces but rather in Vice President Dick Cheney's office.

The Other Bush Lie (tags)

"The conclusion, then, is inescapable. The cadre of cheerleading hawks -- both inside and outside the administration -- who led the United States to war 19 months later had decided within 10 days of the terrorist attacks that 9/11 should be used as the pretext for Hussein's removal, even if there was absolutely no connection between the two."

Say It Ain't So, Geo (tags)

Resuming nuclear testing in Nevada is a bad idea. Building "battlefield nukes" may be an even worse thing. But what about when Bush signs treaties with terrorists?

How and why the US encouraged looting in Iraq (tags)

The US military stood by and permitted the ransacking of the museum, an incalculable blow to Iraqi and world culture, just as they allowed and even encouraged the looting of hospitals, universities, libraries and government social service buildings. The occupation forces protected only the Ministry of Oil, with its detailed inventory of Iraqi oil reserves, as well as the Ministry of Interior, the headquarters of the ousted regime’s secret police.

How has the American media conned its subjects into supporting war on Iraq? (tags)

How the U.S. media has systematically propagandized its American subjects to be pro-Israel and anti-Arab, and have programmed the American mind into accepting 300,000 American troops being sent to fight and die for the fascist government of Israel and greed-obsessed oil company executives. This story will list the seven biggest monolithic media conglomerates that dominate American political news & commentary. Copyright Richard Lee (2003)

Orwellian Poindexter IAO planed BEFORE 911 !! (tags)

Just like unPatriot Act -- set in motion before 9-11 ... get the word out so the brain-dead corporate media doesn't roll over

Protest Dachle (tags)

We need a Senate Dem. Leader that will stand up, rather than rollover. Dashcle is letting Bush and co. get away with murder by continuing his lack of leadership against the new right policies. I urge all to call write their senators and ask that they vote dashcle out as min. leader. Look at this latest legislation that dashcle thinks will pass- (that's your opposition- i think it will pass)... Maybe Boxer has a spine.

A strange kind of freedom (tags)

We all know about the perils of Islamic fanaticism. But, says Robert Fisk, the biggest threat to liberty in the US may come from other kinds of fundamentalism: Jewish and Christian
