THIS ELECTION DOESN'T PASS THE "SMELL TEST": TOO EASILY WON. AND WHAT ABOUT OUR CIVIL LIBERTIES? READ ON...

QUOTE:

Are Democrats Turning A Blind Eye to Civil Liberty?

Paul Craig Roberts

Democrats are anxious to get on with their agendas and
have shown no recognition that the first order of business
is to repeal the legislation that permits torture, warrantless
detention and domestic spying. Continue

QUOTE:

“With Great Power…”

By Rick Banales

We must remind these people that until we have the
900-year-old principle of Habeas Corpus returned in
this country – whole, undiluted, for citizen and non-citizen
alike, we really do not live in America. Continue

Open Letter to Reps Pelosi and Conyers

We the People are Setting the Table Now

By Cindy Sheehan

We the people put the Democrats back into power because
we want to see a change in this country and a rejection of
politics as usual. We want politics as unusual. We want to
see the issue of impeachment and a speedy and safe
withdrawal of our troops from Iraq de-politicized and
brought into the realm of "right and wrong" where these
issues belong, not "right and left." Continue

Rumsfeld’s long walk into Political Oblivion

By Mike Whitney

Even after being forced to resign in utter disgrace, he still
shows no sign of doubting his abilities as a military genius.
His ego remains as impervious to criticism as tempered steel.

Cheney’s Revenge

By Mike Whitney

The establishment “old school” Republicans and country
club plutocrats put-together a plan to sabotage the Cheney
administration and put an end to the Iraq debacle. Continue

The Republicans Took a Dive

By Ezekiel Jones

What explains the curious decline from the high--powered
Republican machine that could snatch victory from the
jaws of defeat in 2000, 2002 and 2004 to the broken
down jalopy of 2006 that blew control of both houses
of Congress? Continue

A Veteran Remembers

By Howard Zinn

Our decent impulse, to recognize the ordeal of our veterans,
has been used to obscure the fact that they died, they were
crippled, for no good cause other than the power and profit
of a few. Veterans Day, instead of an occasion for denouncing
war, has become an occasion for bringing out the flags, the
uniforms, the martial music, the patriotic speeches reeking
with hypocrisy. Continue

Unleashing Armageddon in the Middle East

By Dr. Elias Akleh

The powder keg is ready and all it needs is a match to
ignite it. This could come in the form of an “arranged”
terrorist act in Lebanon – e.g. another political assassination
or toppling of government- to be blamed against Syria and
Iran. American warnings of such an act are already in the
media. Continue

QUOTE:

I doubt there is guilt

By John Chuckman

The Democratic Party has been all but dead for years as
a meaningful national alternative. The party has no
recognized national leader. It has no cause, no fire in
the belly. It has been largely silent for six years while
Bush rampaged through the world and literally peed on
American liberties like a grotesquely-smirking,
small-town sheriff. Continue

QUOTE:

Cheney in a Box

By Mike Whitney

The Democrats didn’t win anything; that’s all hogwash. Bush
was buried beneath an avalanche of bad news. It was a
carefully-coordinated coup intended to install “adults”
(like Robert Gates) in positions of power, change the policy
in Iraq, and remove Rumsfeld and Cheney from office. Continue

Baghdad: The New Saigon?

By Patrick J. Buchanan

As the Democrats have now captured Congress, they assume
co-responsibility for the retreat from Mesopotamia. Which i

No Exit Strategy

By Ray McGovern

Ret. Gen. John Keane of the “Military Senior Adviser Panel”
takes a different tack. He recommends that 40,000 additional
U.S. troops be sent to secure Baghdad. And Sen. John McCain,
R-Ariz., too, continues to press for sending more troops to
Iraq as the only way to “salvage” the situation. Continue
