The Black Death of Financial Collapse

By James Cumes

The financial and economic crisis now upon us is by
far the most menacing of the past century - even
more so than the Great Depression of the 1930s.
It is not just a "subprime" crisis; it is systemic -
affecting the entire financial system. Continue

Petraeus Points To War With Iran

By Patrick J. Buchanan

The neocons may yet get their war on Iran. Ever
since President Nouri al-Maliki ordered the attacks
in Basra on the Mahdi Army, Gen. David Petraeus
has been laying the predicate for U.S. air strikes on
Iran and a wider war in the Middle East. Continue

Why Americans Are Bitter

By Mary Pitt

We lose our jobs, we lose our homes, we lose our sons
in the war without end, and now many of us are losing
our tempers! Some are old enough to remember the
miseries of the Great Depression and we feel another
one coming on as history is repeating itself. Continue

What's Fear Got To Do With It?

By Carolyn Baker

The world we wanted to have is not within our reach;
the world we deeply dread is upon us. Meanwhile, the
world we have known, ugly as it may be but nevertheless
familiar, is vanishing before our eyes. Continue

More Than Three Billion People Condemned To Death From Hunger And Thirst

By Fidel Castro

THAT is not an exaggerated figure, but rather a cautious
one. I have meditated a lot on that in the wake of President
Bush’s meeting with U.S. automobile manufacturers. Continue

Financial Collapse Will End The Occupation

And it won't be "A time of our choosing"

By Mike Whitney

The Iraq War signals the end of US interventionism for
at least a generation; maybe longer. The ideological
foundation for the war (preemption/regime change)
has been exposed as a baseless justification for unprovoked
aggression. Someone will have to be held accountable.

The Coming War with Iran: It's About the Oil, Stupid

By Joe Lauria

World civilization is based on oil. The world is running out
of oil. The oil companies and governments are not telling
the truth about how close we are to the end. Dick Cheney
knew about peak oil back in 1999 when he spoke to the
London Petroleum Institute as Halliburton CEO. Continue

The Martial Law Act of 2006

By James Bovard

Martial law is perhaps the ultimate stomping of freedom.
And yet, on September 30, 2006, Congress passed a
provision in a 591-page bill that will make it easy for
President Bush to impose martial law in response to a
terrorist “incident.” It also empowers him to effectively
declare martial law in response to what he or other federal
officials label a shortfall of “public order” – whatever
that means. Continue

Our Debt to Jimmy Carter

By Haaretz Editorial

Ehud Olmert, who has not managed to achieve any
peace agreement during his public life, and who even
tried to undermine negotiations in the past, "could not
find the time" to meet the American president who
is a signatory to the peace agreement with Egypt.

Five Hours with Chávez

The Venezuelan president’s meeting with members of the
“In Defense of Humanity” network""When I was in prison,
some told me that I shouldn’t leave, that I shouldn’t accept
amnesty, that my mission was to continue as a prisoner.
Their idea was that I had become mythological, and I said
that I didn’t want to be a myth, that I wanted to go to the
street, with the people. Continue

Obama, Bitterness, Meet the Press, and the Old Politics

By Robert Reich

We’re heading into the worst economic crisis in a half
century or more. Many of the Americans who have been
getting nowhere for decades are in even deeper trouble.
Large numbers of people in Pennsylvania and across
the nation are losing their homes and losing their jobs,
and the situation is likely to grow worse. Continue

How US Capitalism Will End US Military Adventurism

By Peter K. Vickers

I hope all of you in the USA are ready because Karma really

The Man Who Would Be Bush

By Robert Scheer

Are Americans unusually stupid or is it something our
President put in the water? As millions surrender their
homes and sacrifice other standards of our nation's
economic and political reputation to the caprice of the
Bush-Cheney imperium, a majority of voters tell pollsters
that they might vote for a candidate who promises
more of the same. Continue

Who Are The Most Powerful People in America?

By Joel S. Hirschhorn

They are not the rich and superrich, nor the politically
powerful running the two-party plutocracy, nor the greedy
heads of banking and finance companies, and certainly
not the media moguls and bloviating pundits. Continue

Bailout Bonanza

By Ralph Nader

Is there a larger, more exploited, defenseless group of
undifferentiated Americans than the 133 million individual
federal income taxpayers? Their dollars are used to
subsidize organized corporate interests, giveaway taxpayer
assets like minerals under the public lands, and bail out
speculative, self-enriching corporations and their crooked
bosses. Continue

Color of LawWhy Clinton's Jeremiah Wright Strategy Failed:

By David A. Love

The race card has been an accepted part of politics for years,
primarily because that’s the way people liked it. The politics
of division worked because of the willingness of bitter and
frustrated working-class Whites to act against their own self
interests, placing racial solidarity with White elites above
economic solidarity with struggling Americans of all backgrounds.
