The Battle for New Orleans : Only a Real Movement Can Win This War
By : Glen Ford and Peter Gamble - Sunday October 30, 2005
By Glen Ford and Peter Gamble New Orleans represents a challenge to African Americans, unprecedented since the epic struggles of the Fifties and Sixties. The perverse reality, to which African Americans must rise, is that the man-made disaster in the Gulf provides what may be the last chance to build a real Movement, encompassing the broadest sectors of Black America. Cruel history presents the catastrophe as an unwanted opportunity, a test of Black people’s capacity for the (...)

"I can’t believe that some people in Washington think that after a category 5 hurricane the solution is to unleash a category 5 assault on working families.” That was the sentiment of Hurricane Katrina survivors, brought to Washington to draw attention to mounting needs that continue to go unanswered. Campaign for America’s Future sponsored the visit of several survivors who met today with Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, (...)

The world watches as the US attempts its restoration
By : Stephen Walt - Monday October 24, 2005
9 comments
by Stephen Walt Americans normally shrug off newspaper headlines overseas, unconcerned by what the rest of the world thinks of us. But the events of recent months have turned a not-so-flattering mirror back upon the US, forcing us to think seriously about what it is the rest of the world is seeing. The hurricanes that struck America’s Gulf coast this autumn were just the beginning of a series of storms - both physical and political - that have done significant damage to the already (...)

Who Controls the Weather?

Theories about Russian agents steering Hurricane Katrina may be off base, but research into weather manipulation has been going on for decades Pssst. Have you heard? Hurricane Katrina was intentionally steered to hit New Orleans. The Russians — a clique of KGB secret-police hardliners who took over a secret weather-control weapon developed for the old Soviet military — did it. In fact, according to retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Bearden, they’ve been dickering (...)

New Orleans: Leaving the Poor Behind Again!
By : BILL QUIGLEY - Saturday October 15, 2005

By BILL QUIGLEY They are doing it again! My wife and I spent five days and four nights in a hospital in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. We saw people floating dead in the water. We watched people die waiting for evacuation to places with food, water, and electricity. We were rescued by boat and waited for an open pickup truck to take us and dozens of others on a rainy drive to the underpass where thousands of others waited for a bus ride to who knows where. You saw the people left (...)

(CNSNews.com) - Forty-eight hours before the Louis Farrakhan-led march of African Americans through the streets of Washington, D.C., the controversial minister Thursday repeated his charge that levees in New Orleans were intentionally blown up on Aug. 29, following Hurricane Katrina. He also implied that the Bush administration may have orchestrated the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S. Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, and his followers on Saturday will commemorate (...)

By André Cicolella July 22, 1719, the ship Grand-Saint-Antoine left Marseille for the calls of the Levant (as they were described at the time). In Syria, the ship took on a Turkish passenger who died two days later, a victim of the plague that afflicted the region at that time. Eight sailors and the surgeon on board had died when the ship reached Livorno. Nonetheless, the Italian authorities allowed it to return to Marseille, where it arrived May 25, 1720.

When Robert Davis emerged from the temporary detention center in New Orleans, his eye was swollen nearly shut, his face was bruised, and he had a couple of stitches under his left eye. He told The NewStandard that police had beaten him and then charged him with public intoxication and battery, even though he had not had a drink in 25 years and had merely asked a police officer to leave him alone. The 64-year-old retired elementary school teacher sat sadly in a chair Sunday morning outside (...)

Greens Warn of Growing ’Iraqification’ of New Orleans

WASHINGTON - Green Party leaders urged Congress and all Americans to reject the White House’s intention to turn New Orleans and all disaster areas into zones of military control, weakened human rights protections and oversight of federal agencies, and corporate profiteering similar to occupied Iraq. "The treatment of New Orleans’ poorest, especially African Americans, has already been widely reported and is now a national shame, as is the ineptitude of Mayor Nagin’s (...)

Midnight, on a nice summer night. The air smells sweet and the breeze is lovely. Millions of stars twinkle in the night. Silence amidth a few street lights and no one walking around that I could see. At the turn of the street, Newton Street to be precise, cops, guns and a couple of black young men handcuffed behind their backs, picked up from their home stoop... This was my first encounter as I laid foot in Algiers, New Orleans this morning, 5 hours after a curfew imposed at gun point. All (...)

Republicans G.A.S. Act Exploits Katrina For Gas & Oil Industry

Numerous environmental and public service groups have issued warnings on the upcoming G.A.S. Act, HR 3893, scheduled for a vote in the House on Friday. Donald J. Borut, executive director of the National League of Cities has bluntly said that "the goal of this draft legislation seems to be to pass every provision that didn’t make it into the recently-enacted energy bill."

The Discrepancy Between Missing People and Confirmed Fatalities in Mississippi
By : Dr. Ben "Go Fu*k Yourself Cheney" Marble - Wednesday October 5, 2005
by Dr. Ben "Go Fu*k Yourself Cheney" Marble opednews There has been a considerable discrepancy between the 1172 individuals reported as ’missing’ in Harrison County, MS. and the 96 confirmed fatalities. This, of course, has led many people to wonder where those people might be located? My own personal theory was that as the 30+ feet storm surge receded many of the people were likely swept out to sea into the Mississippi Sound. For example, I had heard of one report of an (...)

Loss of bodies adds to grief of many families.

FEMA, Capitalism, and Karl Marx’s Crystal Ball
By : Mike Whitney - Tuesday October 4, 2005
by Mike Whitney October 3, 2005 The Bush administration began the dismantling FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) as one of the first orders of business when they reorganized the government under the Homeland Security Bill. What masquerades now as FEMA is a public relations smokescreen which disguises the fact that the government will no longer assist in major natural catastrophes. The "free market" approach to disaster requires that FEMA chieftains use their power and influence to (...)

Occupied New Orleans and Homegrown Resistance
By : Mike Whitney - Sunday October 2, 2005
1 comment
by Mike Whitney The appearance of fully-armed mercenaries on the streets of New Orleans tells us that the city is currently under occupation. Whenever foreign troops are deployed within an urban area it can only mean one thing; the loss of sovereignty. It’s no different here. Blackwater mercenaries are part of a privately owned army that has seized control of the streets from their rightful owners, the people of New Orleans. They are an integral part of a much broader plan to (...)

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 (...)
