Explaining Michael Chertoff’s counterterrorism stomach

Video and Transcript: Special Comment

By Keith OlbermannYou have by now heard the remark — instantly
added to our through-the-looking-glass lexicon of the 21st century,
a time when we suddenly started referring to this country as “the homeland,”
as if anybody here has used that term since Charles Lindbergh or
the German-American Bund in 1940. Michael Chertoff’s
“gut feeling.” Click to view

A Reform to Restore the People’s Power

By Paul Craig Roberts

As the American people can no longer rely on elected officials
to respond to public opinion, the people must do what they
can to gather power back into their hands before they become
the subjects of tyrants. Continue

Strange Bedfellows

By Cindy Sheehan

There must be an underlying shady reason that Speaker Pelosi
took impeachment off the table. Her office stated the other
day that she will not put the issue back on the table because
she is focused on "ending the war." The statement would be
laughable if it weren't for the fact that she is using a neo-con
strategy of saying the exact opposite of what is true. Continue

Summit in Kennebunkport

By Mike Whitney

Bush and his fellows will do whatever it takes to disrupt Russia’s
steady march to becoming the new century’s Energy Superpower.
The “charm offensive” at Kennebunkport is just one part of
America’s guerilla war on Putin. Missile Defense is another.
Welcome to the new Cold War. Continue

LADY BIRD BROUGHT GRACE TO HER SELFLESS ROLE

David Shribman

Almost 90 years old, almost blind, the world she knew almost
gone, her husband almost forgotten, Lady Bird Johnson was
sitting in her home, talking to a perfect stranger, giving her
rivate thoughts on how she approached perhaps the most public
tragedy of her time. "This situation," she said of the terrible
events she had witnessed in Dallas in November 1963, "called
on you for loss of self and total concentration on the job at
hand -- just the total giving of your mind and heart."

Affordable housing – a rehab plan

The Christian Science Monitor

It seems counterintuitive. America's in a housing slump,
with real estate prices in some areas so low that homeowners
owe more on their mortgages than their dwellings are now

Obama's 'Anyone But Hillary' Strategy

RealClearPolitics.com

Two events, about a week apart, help illustrate the contest
between the two leading Democratic candidates. The first,
as reported by the Wall Street Journal's John Fund, took
place in Colorado at the Aspen Institute Ideas Festival,
where Bill Clinton strode the stage to introduce his wife and
received a standing ovation from the cheering crowd. As Fund
wrote, "The Clinton magic clearly still works for many people."

NAPPY-HEADED HOAX

Ann Coulter

The New York Times alone has mentioned the Scottsboro Boys
case from the 1930s nearly 20 times since 2002 (expanding the
"news" part of "newspaper" just a bit), so I think I'm entitled to
spend at least one more week luxuriating in the Duke lacrosse
players' total vindication and the exposure of a Southern liberal
prosecutor as a corrupt hack.

The Media on ‘Global Terror’

By William Bowles

Five centuries of colonialism and imperialism have left
a legacy of a deeply ingrained racism which expresses
itself at every level of society but which is most insidiously
expressed by the state and its mouthpieces, the corporate
and state-run media. Continue
