State of the Union speech: Bush declares war on the world - The State of the Union speech given by George W. Bush Tuesday night was among the most menacing and belligerent in American history.

The Pestilent Presidency: A Nation Conditioned - The America born in 2001, first with the ascension of Bush and later with the psychological war on Americans begun on 9/11, has degenerated according to plan, methodically and perniciously engineered by entities intent on corporatist control, molded into an immovable ship on a collision course with a giant iceberg. In order for America to sink its people had to be molded to one day accept the fate awaiting us. Our brains had to be programmed and altered, our minds controlled and conditioned, our beliefs brainwashed and engineered.

Big Pimp Baby Daddy Addicted to Oil - G.W. Bush, a man whose family made their fortunes from banks, oil, CIA deceptions and war profiteering had the gall to spin an "addicted to oil" story line in his state of the union speech last night. In yet another Orwellian spin job to distract and manipulate his listeners he introduces the concept of throwing a few scientists at a problem from which he and his have greatly profited.

Hellfire and Damnation: The Washington Consensus for Murder - Last month, President George W. Bush murdered four children. This is not a controversial statement. There is no dispute about the facts.

Nor has the political opposition or the national media offered the slightest objection to the principle of presidential murder.

February 6, 2006

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.

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.

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.

February 8, 2006

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.

Richard Perle Tells More Obvious Lies - ...Perle does not "hope" mass murder and possibly the nuking of Iran "can be avoided," for the Straussian neocons are all about killing Muslims with impudence, as the Israelis are all about killing Palestinians, including defenseless children, with impudence.
