John Conyers | While Conyers backs away from impeachment indicating that the allegations of misconduct are not proven, he is also trying to pass a law to stop Bush from illegal wiretapping...a law to force Bush to obey the law. Why is he making it seem as if the case for impeachment over illegal wiretapping has not been made when he knows that Bush has broken the law? more... 0 Comments

Joseph A. Bello | Veterans returning from active service often face an array of problems during their transition from a military to a civilian lifestyle. Veterans usually have specific needs and require special treatment. In some cases it can take up to a year for a returning veteran to decide what direction he or she will take – that is if they don’t have a medical condition (Depleted Uranium exposure, Post Traumatic Stress) or an economic situation which could possibly lead to homelessness. more... 0 Comments

budgie | While the forces of the traditional ‘left’ argue and analyse themselves into irrelevance (out of existence) the expedient right rumbles forward like a juggernaut. The left has been overwhelmed by simple expediency, the ‘whatever it takes’ (just get the job done) mentality is winning the day. Political correctness has all but destroyed the left whereas the right streaks ahead unburdened by any ethical issues. Ideology has been completely abandoned in favour of strategy. Any semblance to ideology is merely coincidental or a ruse/distraction. more... 1 Comments

Howie Hawkins | Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for US Senate, today called for a new, independent investigation of the 9/11 attacks. Hawkins cited a new poll by Zogby International of Utica that found that "42% believe there has indeed been a cover up" (with 10% unsure) and 45% think "Congress or an International Tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any US government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their success" (with 8% unsure). "Four years ago thousands of innocent people were murdered. in our state's largest city: and yet no one has been held criminally accountable for those actions. Why hasn't the terrorist support network who helped hijack the airplanes been uncovered and prosecuted? Why hasn't Governor Pataki and Senator Clinton demanded to know who financed these attacks, a question the 9/11 Commission dismissed as unimportant? more... 0 Comments
John Tarleton | In “Giuliani Time”, director Kevin Keating unabashedly turns back the clock to the polarizing pre-9-11 Rudy that so many New Yorkers loved to loathe. Keating worked on the film with a Captain Ahab-like intensity for seven years and hopes that it will serve as a wake-up call to Americans who have only heard one side of the Giuliani story. “Be afraid, very afraid,” Keating says. “Bush is just the village idiot. Giuliani is so hubristic and so completely and utterly consumed by his own intelligence and his talent. It could take us God knows where.” more... 1 Comments

Kingfisher | China recently hosted the international Buddhist forum, a communist government openly courting religion! The Church of England, not to be outdone by a bunch of commos, publicly denounced Capitalism and attributed the huge disparity in social circumstances to that ideology of inequity and avarice. No one can claim that the Church of England doesn’t get a point, even if it takes a few hundred years! [Regardless of the vocal gesture or feign, action never follows the odd theological comment against the State]. more... 0 Comments

peptide | In response to increased UN pressure to close the illegal Guantanamo Bay detention/torture centre, the Americans left no doubt, “we have no intention of closing Guantanamo Bay”. The flagrant illegality of Guantanamo Bay is lost on the Americans, or worse, stands as a defiant monument to American belligerence and unilateralism. The rest of the world can go to hell; Americans do what they want when they want, is that clear? more... 0 CommentsPage 61 | Page 59
