The Real Purpose Of Airport Body Scanners: Breaking The Will Of The People
By : Emmanuelle - Thursday January 28, 2010
6 comments
By Steve Watson Airports serving as trial grounds for the prison planet The clamor to ramp up airport security with invasive naked body imaging scanners has nothing to do with ensuring the safety of travelers. Rather it is part of an ongoing incremental push to break the will of the people and encourage mass subservience and meek obedience. Perhaps the most alarming aspect of the body scanner push is that people are willingly accepting it. As Bloomberg news reports today, (...)

The Coming Struggle, Why Your Guns Won’t Save You

By David Glenn Cox First let me say that I have owned guns most of my adult life. I’m not a gun nut or a fanatic with high-powered rifles and semiautomatic handguns, or a bunker under the house. I owned a shotgun for home protection and a pistol for personal protection because I worked in a rough area and had to make cash bank deposits. I never had to use either gun but felt safer for knowing that I had them just in case of emergency. During my divorce my wife told sheriff’s (...)

Indigenous Activist Splitting-the-Sky Arrested at Bush Demo (+ video)
By : Johnny Canuck - Wednesday March 18, 2009

Indigenous activist Splitting-the-Sky was arrested in Calgary yesterday. He was protesting the presence of George Bush. Although both Canadian and domestic law compels Canada to bar or arrest Bush as a "credible" war criminal suspect - the government has thus far shielded Bush from any move to do either. Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper is a staunch neocon and supporter of Bush policies. Splitting the Sky was in the process of instructing Calgary Police as to their obligations (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
