The Man Nobody Wanted
By : David Cox - Wednesday March 5, 2008
By David Glenn Cox There is something strange going on in the political landscape of America. Something both parties see as a threat to national security, well to their national security at least. The candidates of both major political parties strike terror into the hearts of both political parties’ leadership for the same reason, and for opposite reasons. Last year it was a foregone conclusion that the Democratic nominee would be Hillary Clinton, no one doubted it for one minute, (...)

Peace Candidates Step Forward to Challenge Bush Enablers
By : nadia - Sunday February 17, 2008

This week an exciting new candidate has come forward to challenge Nancy Pelosi in her San Francisco district where the voters are being ignored by the Speaker of the House. Citizens around the nation are pledging time and sending donations to Shirley Golub in an effort to show Nancy Pelosi that we have had enough. She has failed to uphold the Constitution and appears to be protecting Bush from his crimes, not defending our Constitution and holding him accountable to the law. Shirley Golub (...)

Republicans Walk Out, Americans Pray They Won’t Return
By : Fearless Rick - Friday February 15, 2008
2 comments
Republican lawmakers in Washington, DC, did today what voters and citizens across the country have been trying to do for the better part of the last 8 years: they removed themselves from the House chamber of the Capitol. Following an impassioned speech decrying "political grandstanding" by minority leader John Boehner, Republican members of the House of Representatives walked out of congress and onto the steps of the Capitol in a move oddly similar to "political grandstanding."

The Decline and Fall of the Liberal Media
By : arty kraft - Thursday December 20, 2007
Last night PBS aired "An Unreasonable Man" — a brilliant documentary about Ralph Nader, the man responsible for seat belts, air bags, food labeling and safety, and a host of other humanist causes. Over time, however, America grew tired of this tireless advocate. His efforts to contain corporate power is a trajectory of liberal causes that sadly, ultimately fell on deaf ears. By the time he ran for President in 2000, the electorate — thanks to Bill Clinton and others — had (...)

Appeal of Solidarity With The People, The Government, The Communist And Progressive Forces of Bolivia The political process in Bolivia faces a critical moment.

Yo Hiillary, You Ain’t "Winning" Now
By : arty kraft - Thursday November 29, 2007
Recently in a debate Hillary was asked about the increasing pressure her opponents were applying. That’s to be expected, she said, because "I’m winning." Not leading. But winning. Really? Not one vote has been cast. Not one caucus convened. But, somehow, magically, Hillary proclaims to be winning. You don’t have to be Freud to recognize a textbook example of wish fulfillment when you see it. The lack of clear differentiation in this case is no mere trifle. It illustrates (...)

HILLARY CLINTON IN ARKANSAS- THE SEEDS OF CORRUPTION By JEFFREY ST CLAIR AND ALEX COCKBURN
By : Emily - Friday November 16, 2007
COUNTERPUNCH Second in a three-part series. In 1990, the National Law Journal ran profiles of "the 100 Most Influential Lawyers in the United States". Hillary Clinton was on the list, and for years she would publicly boast that the Journal had named her one of "the nation’s 100 top lawyers". Finally, the editor of the National Law Journal, Patrick Oster, wrote to Arkansas’ first lady—as she still was in 1991—testily pointing out that the word "influential" is not (...)

THE MAKING OG HILLARY CLINTON by ALEX COCKBURN AND JEFFREY SAINT CLAIR
By : Emily - Friday November 16, 2007

From Nixon Girl to Watergate First in a three-part series. Hillary Clinton has always been an old-style Midwestern Republican in the Illinois style; one severely infected with Methodism, unlike the more populist variants from Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa. Her first known political enterprise was in the 1960 presidential election, the squeaker where the state of Illinois notoriously put Kennedy over the top, courtesy of Mayor Daley, Sam Giancana and Judith Exner. Hillary was a Nixon (...)

Wobbled by Wealth?
By : PAUL KRUGMAN - Tuesday November 6, 2007
By PAUL KRUGMAN At just about every stop I’ve made so far on my book tour, what I’ve come to think of as The Question comes up. I talk about the origins of the long right-wing dominance of American politics, and the reasons I believe that dominance is coming to an end. Then someone asks, “How can you be optimistic about the prospects for progressive change, when big money has so much influence on politics?” It’s a good question. The public wants change. (...)

Have we just had a taste of how influence might be wielded under a Clinton II Administration? In a very successful week for its most notorious client, Mark Penn’s firm was able to get Blackwater CEO Erik Prince several major television appearances. Lob-ball questions were included at no extra charge. Wednesday, 17 October 2007 by RJ Eskow Democrats have waited years for a consultant that can play the media as well as the GOP can.

PEACE PRIZE AWARDS TO WAR CRIMINALS
By : HARRY - Friday October 19, 2007
Nobel Hypocrisy By Stephen Lendman Alfred Nobel was a wealthy nineteenth century Swedish-born chemist, engineer, inventor of dynamite, armaments manufacturer and war profiteer who remade his image late in life by establishing the awarding of prizes in his name that includes the one for peace. This most noted award was inspired by his one-time secretary and peace activist, Bertha von Suttner, who was nominated four times and became the first of only 12 women to be honored.

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
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 (...)

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.

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 (...)
