Candidate Alexander: Iraq War, Many Diversions (tags)
While Americans were being distracted by the tears and fears of Ms Paris Hilton, brave American soldiers were dying in Iraq. While Americans are watching television, the events in Iraq are dividing the Middle East. While Americans are watching television the Bush administration is assisting the multi-national oil giants in the attempt to privatize Iraq’s vast oil reserves, an effort that will destroy Iraq’s economy, will leave the people of Iraq in poverty and will weaken the existing government.

Why Democracies evolve into Dictatorships (tags)
It took only six years with Bush Jr. as President to give birth to a new generation of radical political activists, journalists, and commentators, whose main concerns are subjecting the insane policies of the President to exposure and condemnation; this, it seems, constitutes the foundation for nearly the entire realm of real political opposition in the U.S. The strategy here is limited to educating people about the destructive policies of the Republicans and hoping that in response, a protest or political movement will evolve powerful enough to either reform or displace those in power. Education of course, is absolutely crucial in transforming any dissident organization into an entity capable of action and results. However, by focusing only on the policies of the Republicans, without explaining the larger framework from whence they came, political education is greatly hindered, limiting the potential for effective action.
Nazis and Neo-Cons: compare and contrast (tags)
It’s not uncommon to hear a left-leaning person denounce the Bush administration with a barrage of Nazi-related epithets. The slurs are typically blurted out in anger with little thought to evidence or validity. In fact, whenever analogies are made linking a person or current event to either the Nazis or Holocaust, accusatory responses of “exaggeration” and “slander” are usually justified; it is indeed immature to randomly compare anything to the machine of Nazism that took the innocent lives of so many. While taking this into full consideration, the following is nevertheless an attempt to make some unpleasant connections.
IMC-Binghamton, Not L.A. Times, Broke Story on DoD Media Scandal (tags)
The breaking story about the U.S. military’s planting of prepackaged stories in foreign media – a “scoop” attributed to the L.A..

Times, was the first media outlet across the globe to report on this propaganda-production endeavor, the brainchild of the U.S. Special Operations Command.

$9B Goes Missing In Iraq-Huge Sum Disappears Without A Trace (tags)
This article is from the Wash. DC IMC: By: Helen Thomas Profiteering from the Iraq war is not a surprise, especially in light of the Bush administration’s pandering to the military-industrial complex.

Is LA on a Christian Crusade? (tags)
Is Los Angeles Independent Media on a Christian Crusade? The front and center picture on the LA Independent Media website of "Raza Unida" showing the US and Mexico "Raza" (presumably Latinos who are Christians) united by a Christian cross is a clear sign that LA Independent Media is promoting a Christian Crusade, which by definition is anti-Semitic, anti-Communist and anti-science. These positions are obviously antithetical to Independent Media and its supporters.

Excerpt "Without hesitation, he said that he did not feel that demonstrations accomplish anything and that politicians, who make the decisions, respond to whoever gives them the most money. He further contended that the demonstrators had no business blocking traffic, that if they wanted to demonstrate, they should do it in a place where the demonstration would not disrupt peoples’ lives. "
