Which is why core policies of the state do not change by changing the front faces in the White House. Often minor domestic policy changes are put on the table and “then, vigorous debate is encouraged within the limits imposed by unstated doctrinal orthodoxy” just to maintain the facade of democracy and elections being the harbingers of the much needed change.

Lessons From America's Lost Decade (tags)
"The fact that the United States has embraced "voodoo economics" for 30 years and refuses to recognize the statistical evidence of Reaganomics' abject failure suggests that the larger lesson of this era –– is that the U.S. political process is dysfunctional."
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.
Why the MSM Can't Tell The Truth About Georgia (tags)
"From Tbilisi to Teheran" Heightens Suspicions of Motive in Georgian Crisis Since the attacks by Georgia which sparked the fighting (which, alone, suggests Georgia had been promised the support of a larger power) took place on the day that the last two US carrier groups started for the Strait of Hormuz, it would appear that one motive (besides the pipelines from the Caspian which rival the new ones the US built in Afghanistan) appears to be tying up and/or demonizing Russia, in order to minimize its response to US/Israeli Aggression towards Iran. The following article from the Jerusalem Post appears to support this, as does the US/Israeli line seen today, as well as the willingness of the bulk of the Western press to so horribly misrepresent this conflict. https://israel.indymedia.org/newswire/display/9471/index.php
The Mystery of American Foreign Policy (tags)
It appears to be a mystery because it is being driven primrarily by foreigners, for interests that are not America's.
Iraq's Laboratory of Repression (tags)
The Bush administration is turning Iraq into a test tube for modern techniques of repression, from sophisticated biometrics that track populations to devastating weapons systems that combine night-vision optics from drone aircraft, heat resonance imaging and deadly firepower from the sky to kill suspected insurgents. The harsh repression surrounding the “surge” has drawn far less U.S. press attention. The grim reality, however, is that an increasingly desperate American military has stepped up its indiscriminate killing and jailing of Iraqis, especially “military-age males” or MAMS.

America's Debt to Journalist Gary Webb (tags)
In 1996, journalist Gary Webb wrote a series of articles that forced a long-overdue investigation of a very dark chapter of recent U.S. foreign policy – the Reagan-Bush administration’s protection of cocaine traffickers who operated under the cover of the Nicaraguan contra war in the 1980s.

The Reagan Legacy (tags)
Usually, I am very reluctant to criticize the dead. However, since the corporate media seem so fervent in their desire to glorify Ronald Reagan and will probably do so for weeks, if not months, I believe an alternative perspective is only fair.
Reagan on a Dime (tags)
An argument against the perception of Ronald Reagan as a great President. In my opinion, he doesn't deserve to be on the dime or have his face chiseled into Mt. Rushmore as some conservatives have suggested.

Civility & Double Standards (Corporate Media & Bush Lies Re: FTAA, etc.) (tags)
It seems like just yesterday when the national news media was quick to accuse leading politicians of lying. But "George W. Bush has changed that, with journalists now won to the "civility" that Bush vowed to bring to Washington. Take how The New York Times delicately stepped around the apparent contradictions in Bush's words at the Quebec free-trade summit...."
BACK ON BENDED KNEE (tags)
The Washington press corps is wowed by George W.

WHO'S LYING? Gore or the Media? (tags)
Excerpt of a story on TomPaine.com (with link to full story.) Particularly worth noting is that Mollie Dickerson identifies specific reporters at the Washington Post and New York Times responsible for promoting these lies, just as Gene Lyons identified Jeff Gerth's role in promoting Whitewater lies years before Gerth set off the Wen Ho Lee witch-hunt.
