Jeremy Scahill: 20 Hawks, Clintonites and Neocons to Watch for in Obama's White House (tags)
U.S. policy is not about one individual, and no matter how much faith people place in President-elect Barack Obama, the policies he enacts will be fruit of a tree with many roots. Among them: his personal politics and views, the disastrous realities his administration will inherit, and, of course, unpredictable future crises. But the best immediate indicator of what an Obama administration might look like can be found in the people he surrounds himself with and who he appoints to his Cabinet. And, frankly, when it comes to foreign policy, it is not looking good.
Hey, Prez-Elect Obama: Say “Thanks” to Alan Greenspan! (tags)
Sen. John McCain’s presidential candidacy was done in mostly by a Wall Street-Financial Meltdown, in late Sept. 2008. This phenomenon took the issue of “national security,” which favored him, off the table, and replaced it with “the economy,” which was Sen. Obama’s strongest suit. The fact that Dubya is the most unpopular president in history, coupled with having $639 million to spend, all added up to a smashing victory for Prez-Elect Obama.

We have two proud death penalty, anti-Palestinian, capitalist, millionaire US Senators from California, Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein. Feinstein is currently up for re-election and she has no Republican opponent. Instead, she has Marsha Feinland of the Peace & Freedom Party and Todd Chretien of the Green Party challenging her.

WHY is Exposure, Investigation Critical? Prosecute electoral fraud = Quell Fascism. (tags)
Have republicans in both houses secured seats and hence majority status on the backs of voting machines instead of the backing of the People. Is their good fortune due more to faulty, partisan electronic malfeasence ? INSTEAD of selection made by the force of good ideas, positive path platforms and real, honest acceptance by committed, concerned constituents seeking genuine change. Alarm bells are rringing among the populace, with a recent poll saying 72% believe we are heading in the wrong direction! I believe the citizenry is activated, aware and aghast- WHY is this resonance not reflected in the representation, RutRoh!
