Study reveals true extent of 'old boys network' between Government and banks

The research looked at so-called "revolving door connections", when a company employs former or current politicians, civil servants or members of regulatory bodies, or where individuals move from the financial sector into politics, Government or regulatory bodies.

UK repeating Iraq mistakes in Afghanistan, says former minister

The British occupation of southern Iraq has ended in unmitigated disaster with the withdrawal of UK troops leaving Basra in a much worse condition than they found it, according to former British Labour cabinet minister Tony Benn.

Former MI6 chief says Britain was 'dragged' into Iraq war

Britain was "dragged into a war in Iraq which was always against out better judgment" the former deputy head of MI6 has claimed, in a remark that will reignite the debate over political interference in the war.

Iraq: 'Basra is now worse than when the British troops arrived'

Basra was once known as the Venice of the East as it has dozens of canals. But there is no romance in them now. They are clogged with sewage and rubbish - household waste, abandoned cars, broken bikes and plastic bottles and bags.

Requiem for the Republican Party

By Mike Whitney

The poor GOP isn't really even a party anymore; it's more like a vaudeville troupe scuttling from one backwater to the next performing the same worn slapstick. They've simply become irrelevant, a "non-party" that no one pays much attention to apart from the occasional zinger on the Daily Show or Letterman.

Right to the very end in Iraq, our masters denied us the truth

The sentence 'millions of Iraqis now live free of oppression' is pure public relations.

Obama Administration Seeks Extraordinary Military Powers in Pakistan

By Bill Van Auken

This was the main message delivered by Pentagon officials on Capitol Hill over the last few days, together with increasingly dire warnings that without immediate and unconditional US military funding for Pakistan, the government could collapse.

The Myth of Talibanistan

By Pepe Escobar

Apocalypse Now. Run for cover. The turbans are coming. This is the state of Pakistan today, according to the current hysteria disseminated by the Barack Obama administration and United States corporate media - from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to The New York Times.

John Bolton: We may have to acquiesce in a 'Pakistani military takeover'

Perennial Neoconservative gadfly John Bolton, who has often been accused of making exaggerated claims about Middle Eastern threats, is now suggesting that a military coup in Pakistan may be the only viable response to the growing power of the Taliban.

Combat Operations in Fallujah

Dahr Jamail, Truthout: "Indicative of the rapidly deteriorating situation in Iraq, on May 1 the US military reported the death of a Naval petty officer who was killed 'on April 30 while conducting combat operations in Fallujah, Iraq.' The Department of Defense report went on to explain that the sailor 'was deployed with an East Coast based Navy SEAL team.' That same day, the military announced the deaths of two marines 'killed while conducting combat operations against enemy forces here April 30.' The dateline for the latter press release is 'AL ANBAR PROVINCE, Iraq.' Apparently, all is not well in Fallujah and al-Anbar province. The US military, having met the fiercest resistance throughout their occupation of Iraq in these areas, is once again conducting combat operations there."

Iraq Rules Out Extension of US Withdrawal Dates

Reuters: "Iraq will not extend withdrawal deadlines for US troops set out in a bilateral accord, ending months of speculation about whether US combat troops would stay beyond June in bases in the restive northern city of Mosul. Government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said Iraq was committed to adhering to the withdrawal schedule in the pact, which took effect on Jan. 1, including the requirement to withdraw US combat troops from towns and cities by the end of June and a full withdrawal by the end of 2011."

Don’t worry, they only need another $20 trillion

The war on drugs is a war on you

Campaign For Liberty
by Michael Boldin


The drug war is based on a repugnant assertion: that you do not have ownership over your own body; that you don’t have the right to decide what you’ll do with your body, with your property and with your life. The position of the drug warriors is that you should be in jail if you decide to do something with your body that they don’t approve of. This is an abomination of everything that America is supposed to stand for. As long as this country continues the drug war, you are not free...

Swine flu born on US factory farms



Scientists have traced the genetic lineage of the new H1N1 swine flu to a strain that emerged in 1998 in U.S. factory farms, where it spread and mutated at an alarming rate. Experts warned then that a pocket of the virus would someday evolve to infect humans, perhaps setting off a global pandemic. The new findings challenge recent protests by pork industry leaders and U.S., Mexican and United Nations agriculture officials that industrial farms shouldn’t be implicated in the new swine flu, which has killed up to 176 people and on Thursday was declared an imminent pandemic by the World Health Organization. … [G]eneticists studying the composition of viruses taken from swine flu victims described it as the product of a DNA swap between North American and Eurasian swine flu strains...

Perez before swine

Freedom's Phoenix
by Powell Gammill


Most people don’t really realize it but influenza or (aka) flu kills an estimated 36,000 people a year in the USA. The vast majority are either under 5 years of age or over 55 years old. Cause of death is almost always pneumonia. The current swine flu’s mortality rate of 7% is not much higher that any other flu we have recently experienced. So why the media generated scare? Ahhhh, that is a good question. Yes it is unusual to get flu this late in the year...

Flu: You’re soaking in it (but you probably shouldn’t worry)

Disloyal Opposition
by JD Tuccille


First, a little worrying news. You know those amazingly sparse ‘confirmed cases’ figures? They’re garbage. It takes 3-7 days to get results back from swine flu, so if the whole country had been tested on Wednesday, we still wouldn’t know how prevalent it was. But to test, you’d need proper test media for taking and transmitting samples. And that’s in short supply. … my wife has been seeing 50 patients each day. That’s a record for her. Her colleagues are also swamped. The kids coming in are all … Well, you know where this is going. Just assume that this bug is already widespread. Now, the good news. The swine flu, so far, looks like … flu. That’s not to say you want to catch it, but it doesn’t appear to be anything like the killer bug that people have been fretting about. Chances are that if you catch it, you’ll have a few lousy days. Then you’ll get better. That’s it. No doomsday, no bodies stacked in the streets...

Swine flu? Government is more dangerous

Freedom Politics
by Tom Lucente


The ability of human beings to overreact never ceases to amaze me. Of course, I am referring to the unwarranted and silly reactions to the swine flu outbreak. People, get a grip! This minor outbreak has the Egyptian government slaughtering hundreds of thousands of pigs, even though no cases of swine flu have been reported there. Other countries, such as China, Russia and Indonesia, have banned the importation of pork products, despite the fact that you cannot catch the flu from bacon, pork or any other food product...

Swine Flu A Hoax, But Martial Law All Too Real

As officials all but guarantee deadlier form of H1N1 will return later this year, draconian response measures have been established with the aid of deceptive scaremongering and hype

Paul Joseph Watson
Monday, May 4, 2009

The H1N1 virus itself has claimed less lives than a normal flu outbreak would be expected to kill, but the architecture of martial law in the form of draconian measures readied to combat a pandemic has been firmly locked into place.

Officials: Gitmo “court” system likely to remain open

USA Today


The Obama administration may revamp and restart the Bush-era military trial system for suspected terrorists as it struggles to determine the fate of detainees held at Guantanamo Bay and fulfill a pledge to close the prison by January. The move would further delay terrorism trials and, coupled with recent comments by U.S. military and legal officials, amounts to a public admission by President Barack Obama’s team that delivering on that promise is easier said than done...

New Hate Crimes Bill Criminalizes Words and Thoughts

by NWV News

Wednesday night, while President Barack Obama held his televised press conference marking his first 100 days in office, the federal hate crimes bill -- HR 1913, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 -- passed in the House of Representatives by a vote of 249 to 175. But not everyone believes this piece of legislation is a great idea.......

The New Homeless

Elizabeth Leland, The Charlotte Observer: "Kenneth and Stacy Dowdy can't afford a place to live in Charlotte. Neither can Charles DuPree. But if you passed them on the street, you might not recognize them for what they are: Homeless. They are among a growing number of newly homeless who don't fit old stereotypes. Many of them work regular jobs, or did until recently, nursing the sick, caring for other people's children, vacuuming offices, driving cabs."

Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment

Is the Republican Party the party of God?


The Other 100 Days

William Rivers Pitt, Truthout: "For the Republican Party, however, the last 100 days have been something out of a Roger Corman flick: blood on the walls, body parts everywhere, lots of screaming and no plot to speak of. The last 30 months have brought a litany of disasters for the GOP - electoral wipeouts in '06 and '08, a poisoned party "brand," mass voter defections to the Democrats, the total repudiation of their whole ideological slate, and an ex-president about as popular as the mumps - culminating with a run of incidents since the inauguration so unutterably bad as to beggar likeness."

Why the Faithful Approve of Torture

Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite, The Washington Post: "The more often you go to church, the more you approve of torture. This is a troubling finding of a new survey by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. Shouldn't it be the opposite? After all, who would Jesus torture? Since Jesus wouldn't even let Peter use a sword and defend him from arrest, it would seem that those who follow Jesus would strenuously oppose the violence of torture. But, not so in America today. Instead, more than half of people who attend worship at least once a week, or 54%, said that using torture on suspected terrorists was 'often' or 'sometimes' justified."
