Hezbollah Denounces Evrensel Interview of Nasrallah as a Fake
By : from CounterPunch - Friday September 1, 2006
5 comments
The Interview That Wasn’t By ALEXANDER COCKBURN Hussain Rahhal, Hezbollah’s press liaison, has issued a written statement: "Our secretary general Nasrallah has not given any interviews to any Turkish or other non-Lebanese journalist during the month of August. In the face of this imaginary interview that is untruthful, and hence does damage to journalism, credibility and objectivity, Hezbollah reserves its right to take legal action against those who have published it."

Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them
By : Mike Schiller - Thursday August 31, 2006
by Mike Schiller Permission granted to publish & post this article on any website at will, free of charge. Tom Kean, the Republican running against Bob Menendez for the U.S. Senate seat recently vacated by John Corzine, is trying very hard to avoid talking about the issues. For instance, he’d rather avoid letting New Jersey know that he would have voted to confirm Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. He’d rather avoid discussing whether he would have voted for the Bush tax (...)

Snap Judgments. About That Nasrallah Interview
By : ALEXANDER COCKBURN - Wednesday August 30, 2006
By ALEXANDER COCKBURN On August 17 we published a very interesting interview with Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah. A CounterPunch reader had found it on the Marxmail list, moderated by Louis Proyect, and passed it along to us. The interview was translated from Turkish, in which language it had appeared in the Turkish socialist daily, Evrensel, on August 12 and 13. We didn’t publish the full interview, which had some sections on the war that had been somewhat (...)

HILLARY CLINTON: IS SHE THE NEXT PRO-WAR DEMOCRAT TO FALL?
By : Randolph T. Holhut - Thursday August 17, 2006

by Randolph T. Holhut DUMMERSTON, Vt. - Joe Lieberman’s sorry hide has been nailed to the wall, and there is rejoicing in the land (except from the lobbyists, pundits and political hacks who make up the permanent occupation force of Washington). And while I am pleased to see a discredited, humiliated Lieberman forced to cast his lot in with his friends in the Republican Party, I won’t be completely convinced that the revolution is here until Hillary Clinton’s hide is (...)

Bye Bye Bipartisanship
By : Wayne Besen - Tuesday August 15, 2006
1 comment
by Wayne Besen I have long endorsed the political strategy of supporting both GLBT friendly Democrats and Republicans. For pragmatic reasons, it made sense not to put all of our eggs in one basket. However, that was before the GOP leadership was hijacked by right wing basket cases. Sadly, I think it is time for the GLBT movement to reassess the political landscape and consider saying goodbye to bipartisanship. The defenders of the status quo will claim that loyalty is an important (...)

’Single issue’ candidate knows what’s important
By : JESSE JACKSON - Sunday August 6, 2006
BY JESSE JACKSON To this day, Joe Lieberman still doesn’t get it. The 18-year incumbent Democratic senator from Connecticut is in the battle for his political life in the Democratic primary. He dismisses his challenger — Ned Lamont, a Connecticut businessman whose campaign is grounded on opposition to the war in Iraq, as a single-issue candidate. But Iraq is not a single issue, it is a central issue — both for the country and for the Democratic Party. It is a (...)

The Stolen Election Of 2004 The Numbers Simply Do Not Add Up By Michael Parenti July 13, 2006 The 2004 presidential contest between Democratic challenger Senator John Kerry and the Republican incumbent, President Bush Jr., amounted to another stolen election. This has been well documented by such investigators as Rep. John Conyers, Mark Crispin Miller, Bob Fitrakis, Harvey Wasserman, Bev Harris, and others. Here is an overview of what they have reported, along with observations of my own. (...)

Lieberman’s Real Problem
By : Harold Meyerson - Saturday July 15, 2006
By Harold Meyerson I am about to become a traitor to my class. Among my estimable colleagues in the Washington commentariat, the idea that Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman is facing a serious challenge from a fellow Democrat over Lieberman’s support for the Iraq war seems to evoke incredulity and exasperation. On the op-ed pages of leading newspapers, we read that Lieberman is "the most kind-hearted and well-intentioned of men" (that’s from the New York Times’ David (...)

Reclaiming The Issues: "Why Is Bush Spying On Democrats?!?" By Thom Hartmann July 11, 2006 Every time Democrats and progressives speak out about George W. Bush’s spying on Americans without mentioning that he may also be spying on Democrats, they’re playing into Karl Rove’s "National Security Frame" and actually strengthening Republican electoral chances in November. To short-circuit this, Democrats need to invoke the ghost of Richard Nixon. If they don’t, even (...)

The popularity of leftist opposition candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD) scared the ruling National Action Party (PAN) enough to get them to try to deny him the right to run for president in the election just concluded. (...)

Republicans and the "Rule of Law"
By : villy - Sunday July 9, 2006
Have you ever noticed the rank hypocrisy of the Republican Party when they drag out their old standard "We must have respect for the Rule of Law"? What respect? What are they talking about? To wit: They love putting criminals to death (Bush did it 131 times) without seriously considering the possibility of innocence. Many of their followers bomb or burn abortion clinics or murder doctors in the name of "life", despite the gross illegality of such actions. And the GOP says nothing! We (...)

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

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 (...)
