Cheney “Fixes” Libby, Cons America and Thwarts Justice
By : William Hughes - Sunday July 8, 2007
“It is time to remove [Vice President Dick Cheney] from office.” - Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) Eureka Springs, Arkansas - Lewis “Scooter” Libby is not going to a federal prison for 30 months, or even for one day. His boss, Vice President Dick Cheney, made sure of that. U.S. District Court Judge, the Hon. Reggie B. Walton, had ruled that the Neocon, a crony of another prime architect of the Iraqi War, Paul Wolfowitz, deserved serious jail time for lying to a Grand Jury (...)

In sparing Libby, Pres. Bush built an IED that blew up the judicial system

By Mary MacElveen A few years ago, I remember seeing a commercial to help stop drunk driving which said, “Friends do not let friends drive drunk” and the act of a good friend would have been to take away the keys to the car so that no one would get hurt. Most likely that commercial did save countless lives. So when I read this statement coming from Senator Gordon Smith (R) of Oregon in which he said of President Bush, "President Bush is my friend, and I don’t always (...)

ANOTHER MISSION ACCOMPLISHED By Peter Fredson July 3, 2007 It is no surprise. Everyone expected some stupid action from our Heroic Leader, and it came. Bush just commuted the sentence of Scooter Libby, before he served even one day of time. He said that poor Scooter’s sentence was “excessive”, “harsh” for outing CIA agent Valerie Wilson. His heart evidently bleeds for injustice to his cronies, although he seems to see no harsh or excessive penalties in (...)

In November 2004 the farmer was working with his forklift near the railway line on which caskets containing the highly radioactive waste were to run to a dump in Gorleben, northern Germany.

“Time’s glory is to...unmask falsehood and bring truth to light.” - William Shakespeare Irving “Scooter” Libby, V.P. Dick Cheney’s ex-chief of staff, has been a very bad Neocon! He was convicted on March 6, 2007, by a federal jury, in Washington, DC, on four criminal counts dealing with perjury before a grand jury, lying to the FBI and obstruction of justice. Libby was at the center of a cabal based in the White House, which manipulated intelligence and (...)

The Sacco and Vanzetti Case Revisited

“Great trials express—bear—the soul of a nation...” The late historian, Arthur Schlesinger Jr. (1) It read like the kind of brutal crime—especially in that Roaring Twenties era—that might have been pulled off by gang headed by a trigger happy John Dillinger, or someone of that ilk. At 3 PM, April 15, 1920, two men robbed, and then shot to death, a shoe factory paymaster carrying about $16,000 in cash and his security guard. The incident took place in (...)

From little fascist Denmark: another ordinary day in the news

Many people I speak with around the world, friends or casual acquaintances, have expressed what might best be described as feelings of cognitive dissonance when I have attempted to explain how bad things are in today’s Denmark. It just doesn’t match the fairy-tale picture of a modern, progressive, peace-loving, little country which most people have acquired throughout the previous decades. This problem has been particularly acute when I’ve had to explain what currents (...)

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.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

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 (...)

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.

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?

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 (...)
