Looking at America's Police State

By Timothy V. Gatto

Our leaders have no conscience, and hatch their schemes
and plan for conquest, while millions of us wait for a
chance to change this nation’s direction. Sadly, for all
of us that are truly paying attention, we see that real
change is only a mirage. Continue

By Nico Pitney and Sam Stein

Speaking before the Pentecostal church, Palin painted
the current war in Iraq as a messianic affair in which
the United States could act out the will of the Lord.

Preemptive Strikes Against Protests at RNC:

In the months leading up to the Republican National
Convention, the FBI-led Minneapolis Joint Terrorist
Task Force actively recruited people to infiltrate vegan
groups and other leftist organizations and report back
about their activities. On May 21, the Minneapolis City
Pages ran a recruiting story called "Moles Wanted." Law
enforcement sought to preempt lawful protest against
the policies of the Bush administration during the
convention.

Curb Your Enthusiasm for Obama

By Chris Hedges

The Democrats, who promise to end the war in Iraq, create
jobs and provide universal health care, ignore these promises
once election cycles are over. And we never make them
pay. They gave us NAFTA, the destruction of welfare and
increased military spending, and we gave them our vote.
This is the party that took back Congress in 2006 on an
anti-war platform and then increased troop levels and
funding for the Iraq war. Continue

An Open Letter to God, From Michael Moore

By Michael Moore

The last thing John McCain and the Republicans needed
was to have a split-screen on TVs across America: one
side with Bush and McCain partying in St. Paul, and on
the other side of the screen, live footage of their
Republican administration screwing up once again
while New Orleans drowns. Continue

Bush Quietly Seeks to Make War Powers Permanent

By declaring indefinite state of war

By John Byrne

Hypocrisy of this Magnitude has to be Respected.

By William Blum

Im sorry to say that I think that John McCain is going
to be the next president of the United States. After the
long night of Bush horror any Democrat should easily
win, but the Dems are screwing it up and McCain has
been running more-or-less even with Barack Obama
in the polls. Continue

Randy Scheunemann: How Mccain Sees the World

McCain recognizes there are certain people in the world
whom you can't use any word other than evil to describe.

By Adam B. Kushner

KUSHNER: Does McCain divide the world into good and evil?

SCHEUNEMANN: He believes deeply that America is a
force for good, and he recognizes there are certain people
in the world who send children off to be suicide bombers
or repress their citizens viciously whom you can't use any
word other than evil to describe. On the larger question—does
he see the world in black and white, in dividing
lines?—absolutely not. Continue

And Then We Will Die

By Angie Riedel

The US government now confronts every minor inconvenience
with brutality and force. With lies. With tricks. With deceit.
With unrivaled hypocrisy. It speaks a scripted and rehearsed
dialog of illogic and insults. It changes the meanings of words
and uses those words as weapons to crush, to silence and
oppress, to steal what it wants. Continiue

Woodward Also Reveals That Political Fears Kept War
Strategy Review 'Under the Radar'By Steve Luxenberg
During the interviews with Woodward, the president
spoke of the war as part of a recentering of American
power in the Middle East. "And it should be," Bush said.
"And the reason it should be: It is the place from which
a deadly attack emanated. And it is the place where
further deadly attacks could emanate." Continue

How the U.S. Garrisons the Planet and Doesn't Even Notice

By Tom Engelhardt

At the height of the Roman Empire, the Romans had
an estimated 37 major military bases scattered around
their dominions. At the height of the British Empire,
the British had 36 of them planetwide. Depending on
just who you listen to and how you count, we have
hundreds of bases. According to Pentagon records,
in fact, there are 761 active military "sites" abroad.

The Problem Is Empire

By Tom Hayden

We will have to go back to the lessons Roman and British
empires to learn the painful lessons of imperial overextension.
The lessons in blood bravely shed in lost or dubious causes.
The lesson of a weakened capacity to fund healthcare,
education, our children's futures. The lesson that democracy
is diminished as the secrecy of the warmaking state expands.
The lesson of being hated in a world where alliances are
a necessity, not a choice. Continue
