America’s Most Wanted: After Jordan disappeared, they called the police on ME!
By : Jane Stillwater - Tuesday November 23, 2004

by Jane Stillwater Two months ago, I wrote an article entitled "Calling the Police on your Own Child". Little did I know that the next victim of Jordan’s parents’ love affair with calling "911" was going to be me! Now I know how Jordan must feel. It’s like being in an episode of "America’s Most Wanted" Or, more exactly, like being in an episode of "As the World Turns". If you have been keeping up with my serialized episodes of the "Jordan" soap opera, then you know (...)

Indymedia: the tale of the servers ’nobody’ seized
By : John Lettice - Sunday October 24, 2004
By John Lettice ( john.lettice at theregister.co.uk ) Nobody seized Indymedia’s servers, apparently. On the 7th October hosting company Rackspace ’acted in compliance’ with a court order and two servers belonging to Indymedia were removed from Rackspace’s premises in London. But the denials of involvement roll in, the latest coming from UK Home Office minister Caroline Flint, who in answer to Parliamentary questions said: "I can confirm that no UK law enforcement (...)

Evidence is beginning to mount that the authorities of at least four countries (Switzerland, Italy, U.K. and U.S.A.) are involved in last week’s seizure of two of Indymedia’s servers that brought down more than 20 of the Indymedia network’s web sites and several internet radio streams. Indymedia has yet to receive any official statement or information about what the order entailed or why it was issued. An FBI spokesperson, Joe Parris, confirmed to Agence France-Presse (...)

Intelligence Matters
By : 2ndop - Thursday September 30, 2004
I am so glad our intelligence was working two months before 9/11? No wonder we didn’t believe the advance warnings, we were too busy working with other governments to keep our president safe from terrorists who might use planes packed with explosives and crash them into buildings in Genoa. Our intelligence didn’t fail, they were just too busy with other "stuff". One does not need to be an investigative reporter, a deep thinker, or sherlock holmes to figure this one out. G8 (...)

Italians may make ’small doses’ of torture legal
By : Philip Willan - Saturday April 24, 2004
Torture may be acceptable provided it is administered in small doses, says a bill under discussion in the Italian parliament that has outraged human rights organisations. The Chamber of Deputies yesterday passed an amendment, tabled by the far-right Northern League, to the bill which opposition MPs denounced as a green light to "limited" torture but which government supporters said was essential for police. The amendment says violence and threats must be used repeatedly to qualify as (...)

G8 : Open Wounds
By : Enrica Bartesaghi - Thursday April 15, 2004
From an outside perspective, Genoa is still very much linked to the bloody G8 summit from 2001. In the following interview, which was conducted by the publishers of "Genoa etc." [www.etc-publications.com], Enrica Bartesaghi talks about her project to support the victims of the G8 summit in correlation with the city’s transformation into the European Capital of Culture. How do you remember the G8-meeting? Genoa and the G8 was, and still is, an open wound for me both as a mother and (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream

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" (...)

At first glance, the results of America’s 2012 election appear to be a triumph for social, racial, and economic justice and progress in the United States: California voters passed a proposition requiring the rich to shoulder their fair share of the tax burden; Two states, Colorado and Washington, legalized the recreational use of marijuana, while Massachusetts approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes; Washington and two other states, Maine and Maryland, legalized same-sex (...)

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
Friday 28 September
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 (...)

On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

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 (...)
