Election ... Democratic or Oppressive Tool? - Election is a tool often used to foment competition and violence among different groups (political, ethnic and religious) within the same people. Political capitalism uses money, military power, and disinformation to determine the results of elections. Through money votes could be bought, through military power people could be terrorized to vote for a certain group, and through fraud and misinformation the votes of "free" people could be easily prejudiced towards a specific direction.

Call For A Red Synthetic Terror Alert - by Webster Griffin Tarpley - The intense international intelligence warfare pattern mandates a move to red alert -- the highest vigilance -- for the upcoming superbowl Sunday in the USA and the Turin winter Olympics, and perhaps all the way to the March 20 opening of the Iranian oil bourse, which spells the beginning of the end for six decades of world dollar hegemony.

Neo-cons use Denmark as their latest tool to bring about the "Clash of Civilizations." - ...Rasmussen, like Sarkozy, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Netanyahu, Jack Straw, and Australia's John Howard, is marching to the martial music of the neo-cons. They are the shock troops for the Clash of Civilizations, Project for a New American Century, The Long War, A Clean Break, and all the other neo-con plots, conspiracies, and contrivances.

Why believe your LYING eyes - When you can believe the LYING media, instead.

Democrats on Iran - While the Democratic leadership competes with George Bush to see who can be tougher on Iran, it would be comforting to think that the more progressive Democratic base had learned a bit more from the invasion of Iraq than the leadership. Would that that were true. Unfortunately...

How repulsive is U.S. "foreign policy"? - This repulsive...

Does Britain's new weapon break Geneva Convention? - Britain is to spend around £50m on a new shoulder-fired "bunker-buster" to bolster the infantry's street-fighting capability. The new weapon fires grenades able to punch through reinforced concrete from a distance of around 550 yards.

Dude, Where’s My Advertising? 10 Disturbing Trends in Subliminal Persuasion - Some of the biggest advertisers are taking their advertising away from full page ads and television spots and spending up on hidden persuasion.

Subliminal advertising has gone mainstream - fake news, mind control scripts, propaganda and stealth voicemail are in wide use by corporations, government bodies, and industry groups.

Prepare for Perpetual War: The real State of the Union - The megalomaniacs who rule us have no compunctions about the brazenness of their lies: they don't care how it looks, how it sounds, or even, in the end, how it sells. They know what they want, and they are single-minded in going after it. The message came through loud and clear in the president's State of the Union speech: prepare for perpetual war.

Doomsday For The Internet As We Know It? - The first steps in a move to charge for every e mail sent have already been taken. Under the pretext of eliminating spam, Bill Gates and other industry chieftains have proposed Internet users buy credit stamps which denote how many e mails they will be able to send. This of course is the death knell for political newsletters and mailing lists.

Burning Down Danish Embassies: More Straussian Psychological Warfare? - ...there was no shortage of Danish flags to burn. "I raise the question because, as soon as the row about the cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in Jyllands-Posten broke, angry Muslims popped up in Gaza City, and many other places, well supplied with Danish flags ready to burn…. Why were those Danish flags to hand? Who built up the stockpile so that they could be quickly dragged out right across the Muslim world and burnt where television cameras would come and look? The more you study this story of "spontaneous" Muslim rage, the odder it seems."

US bullies IAEA into reporting Iran to the UN Security Council - To state the obvious, "the world" did not have any say in the matter.

Prof. Strauss and the neocon takeover - Who are the crazies? A militant, anti-communist group of mainly Jewish intellectuals who studied the Trotskyite, Machiavellian political philosophy of Prof. Strauss at the University of Chicago. Wolfowitz, Ashcroft, Perle, Abrams, Chalabi, Bennett, Ho, Shulsky, Khalilzad, Schmitt, Kristol, are a few of the invasion architects, intelligence crafters, torture lawyers, Iraq ambassadors and U.S. puppets who studied under Strauss.

Tax Shelters Disguised as Health Care Reform - At least 46 million Americas are now without health insurance. And most earn too little to put much money toward a high-deductible health insurance policy. With rising inflation the working poor and middle class are lucky enough to be able to save $100 toward the cost of their health care, let alone $10,500. The president’s proposal to "strengthen health savings accounts" is nothing more than an attempt to increase tax shelters for the rich.

It was a Commission of great legal, ethical, and moral credibility based on its integrity, its rigor in the presentation of evidence, and the stature of its participants.

March for Truth N.Y.C. 2006 - The phony "Left Wing" media are de facto Bush regime supporters since they refuse to talk about the massive frameup on humanity in the name of the fraudulent "War On Terror".

A Berlusconi victory would be as damaging as was Bush's - In typically vulgar style, Silvio Berlusconi committed himself last week to sexual abstinence until the Italian general election on April 9.

"Dangerous" Academics: Right-wing Distortions About Leftist Professors - It’s easier to defame opponents using emotionally charged language than engage on real issues. Accuse them of being irrational and hateful. Ignore the substance of the claims and just sling mud. By even minimal standards of intellectual or political discourse it’s not terribly honorable, but it often works.

Hillary and Wal-Mart: A Love Story - ...Clinton served on Wal-Mart’s board for six years prior to her husband’s run for the presidency. She recently received $5,000 from Wal-Mart...it speaks to the incumbent’s close ties to abusive corporate power: her large corporate financial contributions, her support for so-called "free trade" (which is simply trade to benefit corporations) and her unwillingness to confront corporate power that denies every American, among other things, universal health insurance.

As it turns out, al-Badawi received the equivalent of a cake with a metal file from Yemeni intelligence officers...

Jack Abramoff and the Republican Black Hand - by Daniel Hopsicker - Millions of words have been written decrying Abramoff’s ruthless greed and utter corruption. But what has gone almost unmentioned...is the looming presence hovering on the fringes of all three major story lines in the Abramoff Scandal—the Indian gambling, the Republican slave plantations in the Mariana’s, and the completely unregulated and therefore to-die-for (literally!)casino cruises in Florida--of Organized Crime, or, as it is referred to colloquially, The Mob.
