McCain and the POW Cover-Up

Sydney H. Schanberg, The Nation: "John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn't return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books."

Cheney Ordered to Preserve All Records

The Associated Press: "A federal judge on Saturday ordered Dick Cheney to preserve a wide range of records from his time as vice president. The decision by the judge, Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, is a setback for the Bush administration in its effort to promote a narrow definition of materials that must be safeguarded under the Presidential Records Act."

Seven Hundred Billion Dollars Sought for Wall Street in Vast Bailout

David M. Herszenhorn, The New York Times: "The Bush administration on Saturday formally proposed a vast bailout of financial institutions in the United States, requesting unfettered authority for the Treasury Department to buy up to $700 billion in distressed mortgage-related assets from the private firms. The proposal, not quite three pages long, was stunning for its stark simplicity. It would raise the national debt ceiling to $11.3 trillion. And it would place no restrictions on the administration other than requiring semiannual reports to Congress, granting the Treasury secretary unprecedented power to buy and resell mortgage debt."

Ron Paul warns of fall of dollar: "It's more of the same

More debt and more inflation and more pressure on the dollar. Ultimately, although the markets are responding very favorably at the moment, I think it is going to be devastating to the dollar and to our financial situation in this country," US News quoted the Texas congressman as saying.

Paulson Bailout Plan a Historic Swindle

By William Greider

Financial-market wise guys, who had been seized with fear, are suddenly drunk with hope. They are rallying explosively because they think they have successfully stampeded Washington into accepting the Wall Street Journal solution to the crisis: dump it all on the taxpayers.

What's Really Bankrupt

The Wall Street Model: Unintelligent Design


There is no sincere plan by this administration to help America or Americans. There is only a plan to slow the financial collapse until after the November elections by throwing a politically palatable amount of money at it and a plan to continue to blame it on a housing bust.

The Dog Days Of September

By Gary Corseri

We can no longer claim to live in "the land of the free and the home of the brave." There is nothing free here except the "free-market" our corporate bosses have foisteed on us and the rest of the world to open up foreign markets to our brand-name companies so that foreign workers can make products that "Americans" will buy at exorbitant prices. How did that happen? Hypnosis through the mass media that "Americans" were supposed to own-hypnosis through repetition, spectacle, diversion.

Popular Scams of the Rich and Famous

By: Richard Backus

The federal government has been playing footsie with fascism for quite a long time, supported only by the inability of the general public to recognize it. Ecclesiastic appointments, corporate management, charity, "brain trust", foundations, university appointments, and even scholarship awards are controlled by political elites, with the consequent assurances that these appointees will play ball with the politicians and their "sponsors". The Pols now essentially control everything under the direction of the rich and famous.

USA Has Bared Its Teeth

It is degrading to say that we cannot fight the Americans

By Asif Haroon Raja

To create fear and panic among the peaceful residents of Waziristan and also to target pro-government elements, missile attacks were intensified and each attack killed innocent men, women and children. The idea was to antagonise pro-government Waziris and also to force them to migrate as had happened in case of Bajaur.

Why Does the US Think it Can Win in Afghanistan?

By Robert Fisk

Back in 2001, we won the war in Afghanistan by overthrowing the Taliban. Then we marched off to win the war in Iraq. Now - with at least one suicide bombing a day and the nation carved up into mutually antagonistic sectarian enclaves - we have won the war in Iraq and are heading back to re-win the war in Afghanistan where the Taliban, so thoroughly trounced by our chaps seven years ago, have proved their moral and political bankruptcy by recapturing half the country.

Mit dem Klimawandel rechnen

Der Klimawandel ist eine Tatsache. Wenn wir nichts unternehmen, wird die durchschnittliche globale Erdtemperatur in den nächsten hundert Jahren um vier bis fünf Grad steigen. Auch die CO2-Emissionen werden noch weiter steigen. Wir müssen aber unsere Treibhausgas-Emissionen deutlich reduzieren, alles andere kommt uns teuer zu stehen. Energie-Expertin Claudia Kemfert zeigt auf, was der Klimaschutz bringt.

Brutal-Kapitalismus oder sozial-ökologische Marktwirtschaft?

Ohne Ordnungsrahmen wird aus jeder freien Marktwirtschaft ein Raubtier-Kapitalismus. Das wussten schon die Väter der sozialen Marktwirtschaft, Ludwig Erhard, Müller-Armack und Walter Eucken , vor 60 Jahren. Deshalb haben sie am Beginn der Bundesrepublik die Marktwirtschaft sozial abgesichert so wie sie heute durch einen ökologischen Ordnungsrahmen eingegrenzt werden muss.

Living In Sarah Palin's America

By David Michael Green

In January of 2003, John Le Carre wrote that, "America has entered one of its periods of historical madness, but this is the worst I can remember: Worse than McCarthyism, worse than the Bay of Pigs and in the long term potentially more disastrous than the Vietnam War." He was surely right then. Except that what once looked like a period now seems like an epoch.
