France’s presidential elections: Much ado about nothing in Guadeloupe
By : caribbean net news - Friday April 13, 2007
1 comment
By Danik Ibraheem Zandwonis Caribbean Net News Guadeloupe Correspondent POINT A PITRE, Guadeloupe: The campaign for France’s presidential elections, which has been just completed in Guadeloupe, has not caught the attention of the voters. In spite of the visits of presidential candidates and of an important media group, the inhabitants of Guadeloupe seemed rather indifferent to the different programmes. Surveys and abstention. What is new this year? The surveys by Qualistat (...)

God’s Dupes
By : Sam Harris - Monday March 19, 2007
5 comments
PETE STARK, a California Democrat, appears to be the first congressman in U.S. history to acknowledge that he doesn’t believe in God. In a country in which 83% of the population thinks that the Bible is the literal or "inspired" word of the creator of the universe, this took political courage. Of course, one can imagine that Cicero’s handlers in the 1st century BC lost some sleep when he likened the traditional accounts of the Greco-Roman gods to the "dreams of madmen" and to (...)

Mike Palecek interviewed by Jason Miller
By : Jason Miller - Saturday March 17, 2007
by Jason Miller “I just look around and see people mowing their lawns on the same day we start to bomb Iraq and it drives me wild.” Mike Palecek Having read and thoroughly enjoyed three of Mike Palecek’s novels, I felt particularly fortunate that he agreed to engage in a cyber-interview with me. His irreverent satirization of the myriad of ills plaguing the United States is unparalleled amongst current authors of sociopolitical fiction. Palecek may hyperbolize, but his (...)

Panderers and Philanderers
By : Wayne Besen - Saturday March 17, 2007
By Wayne Besen Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and Republican presidential candidate, is the king of crass, the maven of craven and the show pony of phony. He switches positions quicker than a porn star and is more slippery than an okra plate dipped in country butter. I never thought the religious right would be gullible enough to buy Romney’s eleventh hour conversion, but apparently he can buy theirs. According to an article in Sunday’s New York Times, the (...)

"Revolution is the Solution": Joel Hirschhorn interviewed by Jason Miller
By : Jason Miller - Saturday March 17, 2007

by Jason Miller For several days I had been bedeviled by the recurring memory of a jingle from an out-dated television commercial. My recollection of the product they were promoting lay tantalizingly close to the edge of my consciousness, but remained stubbornly out of my reach. So my “mind’s ear” was left listening to, “It’s time for a new beginning…” ad nauseam with no tangible context. (If I had had that, I would at least have known which (...)

“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” (1) Baltimore, MD - One of six children, the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi (nee D’Alesandro), age 66, grew up in this city’s charming “Little Italy” area. Her modest family home at the corner of Albemarle and Fawn Streets is surrounded by about ten blocks of even smaller homes and a cluster of restaurants. It is also just a short hop to the R.C. parish school and church, St. (...)

Kucinich says Kerry should have listened to him in 2004

Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich said he became good friends with Senator John Kerry when both ran for president two years ago, but he says that if Kerry would have listened to his ideas about Iraq he could be president today. “I made it clear how I thought Democrats could win,” Kucinich said in an interview with the Globe. “Senator Kerry had another way of looking at it. I like John Kerry, and he would have been a far better president than George Bush will ever be. But I (...)

“Human beings and hard work” - the secret of Europe’s most successful left party.
By : Steve McGiffen - Wednesday December 20, 2006
On November 22nd, the Socialist Party of the Netherlands won 1.6 million votes for its combattive, radical left programme. This was more than ten times what it won 12 years ago, and three times the total for 2003. How was this achieved? Europe’s most successful party of the left gathered last weekend in Utrecht for its first major event since the extraordinary night of November 22nd, when it almost tripled its representation to become the third biggest group in the national (...)

Democratic Party Denies Democracy “We will not cut off funding for the troops”
By : benfrankblog - Thursday December 7, 2006
It is generally understood that the recent overthrow of Republican control of congress was a direct result of the war in Iraq. As if ‘ taking Impeachment off the table wasn’t enough’, now Democratic ‘leaders’ are promising to stay the course in Iraq. Americans are tired of destroying an innocent nation, killing hundreds of thousands and poisoning possibly millions with Depleted Uranium just so Halliburton can continue it’s looting.

Three Little Girls from School are We: Left’s unwarranted giddiness over election gains
By : Daniel Patrick Welch - Tuesday November 21, 2006
by Daniel Patrick Welch Giddy as Mikado schoolgirls, Democrats and their allies on the left are positively gushing over their election gains of November 7. In the US’ two-party duopoly, voters are restricted to shifting power from one side to the other to voice their dissatisfaction with government. And, to be fair, voters did their part, kicking out congressmen, senators and governors from coast to coast. But hopes that this shift will lead to real changes in policy are, as (...)

Andrés Manuel López Obrador for President (of the US!!) by Daniel Patrick Welch Synopsis: Every election cycle, the US antiwar left reconvinces itself that its best chance of advancing its agenda is to dive once again into an alliance with the Democratic Party. Poor Charlie Brown! Is Lucy going to yank the ball away again? No suspense here....

Marie-George Buffet: "We should declare war on the Right"
By : France - Friday November 17, 2006
At the close of work at the National Conference, Marie-George Buffet notably had to say: "We measure the unparalleled stakes in the 2007 elections, for the future of our country: either to slide into bi-partism, with its hopeless succession of alternances, or instead to give rise to a popular alternative to neo-liberal politics. This must be our objective: to construct on the Left a popular and political majority, around a project capable of changing our life. This ambition, I sum up in (...)

Dear Disillusioned Misled Email List, We did it! We won at least 29 House seats and took the majority. We won 6 Senate seats and took back the Senate too, not to mention 28 Governors and several more statehouses. We had incredible turnout of Democratic voters across the country. Thanks to you, we had a vigorous election protection program in place to fight those who would restrict our right to vote. We ran a positive campaign on the issues that really matter to American voters. The past (...)

What Happened? or...Why I Voted Blue
By : BenAMarine - Wednesday November 15, 2006
We noticed! It is now three days after the Nov. 7 election. I have read one Republican analysis of the party’s failure after another, most of which seem at a loss as to where the blame might squarely be laid. Like President Bush, no one could see how the Republicans had done anything wrong, or how they might have done anything significantly different. Well, I am just one of the small, average shmoes out in middle America who, like most of the small average shmoes with whom I (...)

Was the reaction to the 2006 election a ‘Network’ moment? By Mary MacElveen November 14, 2006 In thinking back to America’s reaction to the 2006 mid term elections, the only term that I can come up with that best describes the results of these elections is that America had a ‘Network’ moment.

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" (...)

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 (...)

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. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

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 (...)
