Olbermann: Bush, Cheney Should Resign

By Keith Olbermann - Video and Transcript

I accuse you, Mr. Bush, of lying this country into war. - I accuse
you of fomenting fear among your own people, of creating
the very terror you claim to have fought. Continue

The High Cost of Libby’s Silence

By Amy Goodman

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are
created equal,” says the preamble to the Declaration of
Independence. Unless, of course, you are a friend of the
president. By commuting “Scooter” Libby’s sentence,
President Bush is also protecting himself and Vice President
Dick Cheney. Continue

Republic to Empire

By Charley Reese

There is no such thing as a flawless politician. We should never
expect perfection in anything involving human beings. But
there very much is such a thing as character, and that's where
we've gotten careless in our choice of leaders. Continue

The Mind of the Returning Iraq War Veteran

They Don't Come Back the Same

By Helen Redmond

One thing is clear: President Bush and the other war criminals
in the Whitehouse and Pentagon don't give a shit about the
lives of soldiers. They are canon fodder and nothing else. Continue

George W. Bush is One Tough Hombre

By Paul Begala

If you're rich and right-wing and Republican, George is a real
softie. As George W. Bush demonstrated in giving Scooter Libby
a Get Out of Jail Free Card, he is only compassionate to
conservatives. Continue

Reinventing A War Criminal

By Stephen Lendman

Just hours after standing down, the announcement everyone
knew in advance came, surprising no one but angering most.
Referring to the so-called Quartet, the BBC reported June 27:
"Tony Blair is to become a Middle East envoy working on behalf
of the US, Russia, the UN and the EU." The London Guardian
called him "the Quartet's fifth horseman," an appointment that
"beggars belief." Continue

The Unintended Consequences Of The “Cakewalk War”

By Paul Craig Roberts

The over-stretched American Empire hasn’t any troops to send
to northern Iraq. NATO, whose charter was to defend Western
Europe from Soviet invasion should have been disbanded two
decades ago. Today NATO functions as an auxiliary US force
and has been sent to Afghanistan, where it is being defeated
like the British and Russians before it. Continue

Slaying Our Dreams: Created Our Nightmares

Jim Kirwan

The joys of multinational Corporate power should have limits
placed upon them: just as the people who work for Corporations
need to have their own separate and inviolate "Bill of Rights"
for anyone that has to deal with corporate-anything. We have
the power to demand that the government we pay for must
work for all of us and not for those who seek to steal our lives
and dreams. Continue

Bled White

By Glenn David Cox

The puppets are now the puppet masters, sales of treasury bills
used to finance America's debts are falling and yields must increase
to keep demand up. The Bush administration recently chided
the Chinese to buy more American goods but they know the
Chinese no longer want anything which we might could sell
them. Continue

If I Had Twenty-Four Hours to Live...

HuffingtonPost.com

I come from a family with major mortality issues. Every couple
years someone in the family died. My dad taught me to
appreciate the moment more...one of the last things he said
to me was, "Don't go nuts like you always do when I'm outta
here." He was a wise man. Kind of like Yoda. Except taller.
And less ear hair.
