The Supposed "Omnipotence" of Politicians (tags)

The key to a new peace policy could lie in denouncing mechanisms of economic coercion that are not only states and politicians. As the warnings of Eisenhower and JFK teach us, politics is massively subject to the influences of economic power.

Cynthia Nixon: Bi Heroine Tells It Like It Is (tags)

Actress Cynthia Nixon caused a brief furor last January and ruffled the feathers of the Queer Thought Police by daring to say publicly that as a Bisexual she believes she did have a choice in her sexual orientation, and she doesn't see why people should assume she's a Lesbian just because her current relationship partner is a woman.

Obama v Wikileaks + Nixon v Pentagon Papers = War Criminals (tags)

In 1971, with the publication of the Pentagon Papers, Republican Nixon and his predecessor, Democrat Johnson, were exposed as war criminals in their massacre of 5 million Vietnamese, and eventually 1 million Cambodians and 58,000 Americans, and thousands of other people, for their war of anti-communism in Vietnam. The outrage was so great by 1968 that Johnson did not run for a second term. Now we have Wikileaks, exposing the war crimes of Democrat Obama and Republican Bush in Afghanistan, one of the poorest, most illiterate countries in the world, where the people are subject to US remote controlled drone attacks and daily killings on the ground to get the Caspian Sea oil, minerals and be poised to attack the biggest mineral prize, Russia. Meanwhile the US Congress, Democrats and Republicans, just voted overwhelmingly for more money to kill Afghans and anyone else disliked by US imperialism.

War Criminal Alex Haig Praised by Obama (tags)

People are known by the company they keep and Democrat Obama's praise for the late war criminal Republican General Alexander Haig is the latest sign that we are dealing with yet another fascist president, EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE LAST FASCIST PRESIDENT, GEORGE BUSH. The biography of war criminal Haig (1924-2010) is below.

Statement on Obama’s Surge in Afghanistan (tags)

When US imperialism invaded the Philippines in 1898 they said they will end the war in 16 days, The Filipino-American War lasted for 16 years. When Obama and his generals say they will withdraw the troops by 2011 and train the Afghan army in 18 months, they know that this is impossible and they will invent more reasons to cover up their failure. Like Nixon, Obama was elected on his promise to end the war. But again, like Nixon, he did not end the war but escalated it. Nixon has his “Vietnamization” and Obama has his “Afghanization.”

Pat Nixon at the U.S.-Mexico Border (tags)

Editor's Note: Nearly 40 years ago this month, First Lady Pat Nixon crossed the U.S.-Mexico border and embraced Mexican children, saying, "I hate to see a fence anywhere." Times have changed, writes the commentator, and ironically, President Richard Nixon helped to bring about many of these changes. Joseph Nevins is an associate professor of geography at Vassar College. His latest book is Dying to Live: A Story of U.S. Immigration in an Age of Global Apartheid (City Lights Books, 2008).

Veteran Journalist Robert Scheer Speaks in San Diego (tags)

Veteran progressive journalist Robert Scheer spoke in San Diego July 26 and 28 to promote his new book "The Pornography of Power," an exposé of the military-industrial complex and its continuing power to shape American economic and foreign policy and saddle us not only with weapons we don't need but also the irresistible temptation to use them.

Four More American Drug Planes Seized (tags)

Coincidentally or not, the American owners of the four planes (like the two busted earlier) were largely people and companies with 'special relationships' with U.S. political movers and shakers like John McCain donors, including the CIA and the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security.

Impeachment Call Echoes Near Independence Hall (tags)

In 1974, Elizabeth Holtzman, then a Congresswoman from New York City, served on the House’s Judiciary Committee, which drafted Impeachment charges against then-President, Richard M. Nixon. On Nov. 11, 2006, she appeared on a panel, in Philadelphia, PA. Holtzman believes George W. Bush has “subverted the Constitution” and that “the people are ahead of the politicians” and will bring Bush and Dick Cheney “to impeachment.”

The Rev. Billy Graham is No Phil Berrigan! (tags)

The Rev. Billy Graham was in Baltimore recently doing his religious revival thing. For years, he was a crony of warmongering presidents, like Richard M. Nixon. Rev. Graham’s preaching never attracted me. However, the life work of the late Phil Berrigan, an ex-Josephite priest, had a profound influence on me, and others. Berrigan spoke the truth to power. He relentlessly took on the War Party and spent 11 of his 79 years in prison for his protest actions.

“Best Director” Oscar for Ports Brouhaha Production (tags)

The Iraqi War has been raging for over three years with hardly a peep out of the Congress and/or the Media. Now, a deal which would permit an Arab-owned company to manage stevedore operations in six U.S. ports has sent both into a feeding frenzy. Why? The U.S. Coast Guard is in charge of security at the ports, not the stevedoring outfit. Whoever is behind this ports brouhaha affair deserves an Oscar nomination for - “best director!”

Bush Running Scared? (tags)

Little wonder that President Bush is defending his illegal and unconstitutional domestic spying program. He has no alternative but to try to convince the public not to consider him a criminal and a threat to the Republic.

He's already essentially said the old Nixon line, "I am not a crook."

And like Nixon, he is one.

It is becoming increasingly evident not just to liberals but to honest conservatives that unless this president who thinks he's a king is called to account on this and other violations of the Constitution, those "inalienable" rights we've always claimed as a birthright will have been alienated. That means gone the modern vernacular.

Today, the Washington Times, the Fox News of the print world, weighed in with a story in its magazine that claimed the White House is gearing up for an impeachment battle, predicting that even in the current Republican House, there will be an effort to impeach Bush over the NSA spying. The same article said the White House is worried about losing in the Judiciary Committee on that count, but thinks it can manage to get a tie vote.

I find that speculation a bit unlikely at this point, but who knows? The blatant unconstitutionality of this particular presidential transgression, and the fact that he was caught red-handed and had to admit to it, makes it what George Tenet would call a "slam dunk" case.

In a way, though, it would be unfortunate, because other presidential crimes are much worse--his use of 500 "signing documents" to ignore acts of Congress (no wonder the guy never vetoes bills!), his lying to get the country into a war of agression that is bleeding the nation and its youth, his multiple war crimes and his "crime against peace," his gross negligence in not responding to the Katrina disaster or the looming global warming threat...

The list goes on and on. It would be a tragedy if this Constitutional outlaw ended up being brought up just on a charge of illegal spying by a Republican Judiciary Committee, and then battled that one charge to an almost certain win in the full House, and that was the end of it.

Better, I think, to let the charges keep growing through the 2006 campaign year, and then hit him with all of them at once.

Still, it's nice to see the president starting to squirm.

Bob Woodward - Junkyard Spy? (tags)

Bob Woodward of "Watergate" fame, who recently interjected himself in to the "Plame-gate" scandal, worked as a "gatekeeper" for the Office of Naval Intelligence [ONI], the Pentagon, the CIA and the White House while serving in the Navy, before he joined the Washington Post in late1971 . He may have been "carrying water" for his former Pentagon bosses in the Watergate scandal. Is he now doing the same for neo-cons?

We Need More Anonymous Sources, Not Fewer (tags)

If the corporate media want viewers and readers to hold them in higher regard, they need to start doing real reporting again, and making aggressive use of anonymous sources who can point them to where there is corruption and abuse of power. The alternative is a media that just purveys press handouts. ------------------

WHEN AMERICA WENT STUPID OPEC (tags)

Racicot was quoted as " Senator Kerry crossed a grave line when he dared to suggest the replacement of America 's commander-in- chief at a time when America is at war," while implying that Kerry was a traitorous renegade. Just to remind the snide Racicot, Kerry happens to be a war hero. He has the medals to prove it. The Army doesn't award Purple Hearts out for catching syphilis, in some Mexican whorehouse, while guarding the skies of Texas from VC infiltrators.

Nixon, the Good Sport and Other Election Propaganda (tags)

Nixon lost an achingly close election in 1960, but he did the right thing, and put the national interest above his own, ruling out any challenge to the results. That's the story we've been hearing over and over again since Election Day. Only it isn't true. That's what historian David Greenberg discovered. This interview explores what really happened.
