America's war on tourists:

In a recent poll of international travellers, commissioned
by Discover America Partnership, a coalition of US tourist
organisations, 70 per cent of respondents said they feared
US officials more than terrorists or criminals.

Keith Olbermann: A special comment about Rudolph Giuliani

We — Democrats and Republicans alike, and every variation
in between — We Americans! — are sick to death of you and
the other terror-mongers trying to frighten us into submission,
into the surrender of our rights and our reason, into this
betrayal of that for which this country has always stood..

Jose Padilla and the Zucchini Prosecution

By Mike Whitney

Get this: Jose Padilla just spent 5 years in solitary confinement
for a crime, which the government now admits, never took
place. The notion that a man can be imprisoned without
proof of a crime is “preemptive justice”, which is no justice
at all. It denies the “presumption of innocence” and cedes
absolute power to the state. Continue

and fight them in the streets of our own cities."

War and the Police State: Complicity of the American People

By Donna J. Thorne

In this era of perpetual warfare, escalating domestic tyranny,
government-sanctioned torture, and a Nazi-like pursuit of
Middle-East domination, one would expect, at the very least,
an audible outcry from the People who proclaim resolute
devotion to the ideals of liberty and justice for all. Yet for the
most part, Mainstream America continues to assume a posture
of apathy, bitterness, or eery silence. Continue

Housing Bubble Boondoggle: “Is it too late to get out”?

the five other federal agencies that regulate banks issued

Economic Armageddon Is Coming

The British military establishment's most prestigious

The War Goes Ever On

What Bush has demonstrated to Muslims is that
American democracy is unresponsive to citizens

Stocksplosion

By Jim Kunstler

We've entered a euphoric phase of financial arbitrage
capitalism with extreme Ponzi overtones, a pyramid
scheme of revolving credit rackets and percentage
spread plays completely abstracted from any reality
of fruitful activity. The reason we don't even call
"money" by its former name anymore is precisely
because we realize at some semi-conscious level that
"liquidity" is not really money. Continue

COMPASSIONATE CONSERVATIVES ARE COMPASSIONLESS CONSERVATIVES? IF I'M AFFECTED THEN I'M COMPASSONATE: IF NOT, WHO CARES... LIFE GOES ON AS USUAL

QUOTE:

Compassionless Conservatives

By David Michael Green

Imagine our shock at Paul Wolfowitz’s shock.
He not only masterminded humanity’s greatest
current catastrophe, the US invasion of Iraq, but
he did so by fabricating and marketing a complete
mythological cosmology of Good versus Evil
(Bush good! Saddam bad!), the likes of which
might have left even Jim Jones envious and
amazed. And he did so in a fashion that no doubt
brought a posthumous smile to the face of his
graduate school mentor, Leo Strauss. Continue

Torture, Secrecy, and the Bush Administration

By Scott Horton

We have a duty to posterity, and that is to bear witness
to these events. We must document them carefully. We
must act to avoid the destruction of valuable evidence—and
recognize, as we have already seen, that it is in the character
of those who commit crimes to destroy the evidence of
their misdeeds. In this way we lay the path for the justice
which will in good time be meted out to those who betrayed
a nation's trust. Continue

Few Americans give much thought to the Federal Reserve

The US is at this moment developing advanced systems
