there is no hope 

Where is the debate? House and Senate gives itself pay raise of $4,000. They currently make $158,100. (This is outrageous. We should take to the streets with pots and pans. Will we? No, we're to busy buying shit we don't need.)
Withlittle debate, House lawmakers on Tuesday included themselves as part of a pay raise that all federal employees will receive next year.

Congressman Matheson Repeats Annual Fight Against Congressional Pay Raise
"Now is not the time for Members of Congress to be voting themselves a pay raise," said Matheson. "Let us send a signal to the American people that Congress gets it. We face numerous spending priorities. None of them include raising salaries for Members of Congress."

Neo-Cons Knee Deep in Caucasus Provocations. When our Western partners say we should re-examine our policy, what you call tactics, I would advise them not to interfere in our Russian internal affairs."
In 1999, Freedom House, the neo-con "human rights" destabilization hub, founded by Leo Cherne, launched the American Committee for Peace in Chechnya (ACPC). The goal of the group was unabashed: to interfere into the internal affairs of Russia under the doublespeak slogan that the "Russo-Chechen war" must be settled "peacefully."

The Pinocchio President
With the number of casualties and wounded in Iraq rising daily, and entire cities destabilized by insurgent forces, President Bush's chest- thumping message of progress appears increasingly out of touch and counterproductive.

Freedom of Information Threat Level 'Severe'
In the days immediately following September 11, the U.S. government embarked on a disturbing path of secrecy. The atmosphere of terror induced public officials to abandon this country's culture of openness and opt for secrecy as a way of ensuring safety and security.

Norman Solomon: Missing: A Media Focus on the Supreme Court
The big media themes about the 2004 presidential campaign have reveled in vague rhetoric and flimsy controversies.

Many computer scientists insist that electronic voting machines will be trustworthy only when they produce paper receipts that can be audited
Nevada has taken the lead on paper trails not only in its own elections, but also in Congress. Its senators - John Ensign, a Republican, and Harry Reid, a Democrat - have co-sponsored the bipartisan Voting Integrity and Verification Act, one of a number of pending bills that would require that all electronic voting machines produce voter-verifiable paper trails. Congress should pass such legislation right away so all Americans can have the same confidence in their elections as Nevadans now have.

Drugs and Schooling: The Meaning of State Education
What do government schooling and the mislabeled “war on drugs” have in common? Both are primary mechanisms of social engineering, each designed to subordinate the individual to the bureaucratic state. As such, each should inspire undying suspicion and hostility in everyone who values his life and liberty.

When the US death toll in Iraq crossed 1,000 last week, the number seemed like a shocker. However, that figure pales in comparison with the 30,000 Afghans and Iraqis estimated to have died in the War on Terror
The total figure of 30,000 is more than the number of people killed in terrorist acts in the last 35 years - studies show 22,000 people have been killed in terrorist incidents since 1968.

What do the 9-11 Commission Report and the Bible have in common?

They're both fiction.

Scamming the Media, Parlock Style By William Rivers Pitt
This could all be a series of strange coincidences. Parlock could simply be an unlucky guy who always seems to be around when Democrats do something wretched, who took abuse in 1996, 2000 and 2004 for supporting Republicans, who happened to have the same newspaper on hand to report his story each time, and who also happened to be on the scene of a shooting incident that made Democrats look like frightening would-be assassins.

The Resort to Force by Noam Chomsky
As Colin Powell explained the National Security Strategy (NSS) of September 2002 to a hostile audience at the World Economic Forum, Washington has a ``sovereign right to use force to defend ourselves'' from nations that possess WMD and cooperate with terrorists, the official pretexts for invading Iraq.

Army to Soldiers: Re-enlist Now or Face Immediate Deployment to Iraq
"They told us if we don't re-enlist, then we'd have to be reassigned. And where we're most needed is in units that are going back to Iraq in the next couple of months. So if you think you're getting out, you're not," he said.

Justice Department Censors Supreme Court Quote
Anybody who has read many official documents—including those making headlines in the last year or more—has seen plenty of redactions (those portions that are blacked out or otherwise made unreadable). This, we're told, is for legitimate reasons, such as "national security" or "protecting intelligence sources and methods." But now we have absolute, incontrovertible proof that the government also censors completely innocuous material simply because they don't like it.

SOUTH AFRICA HIT BY MASSIVE STRIKE (When are we going to get the balls to do the same?)

Baghdad Burning - August was a hellish month. The heat was incredible. No one remembers Baghdad ever being quite this hot- I think we broke a new record somewhere in mid-August
The last few days, Baghdad has been echoing with explosions. We woke up to several loud blasts a few days ago. The sound has become all too common. It’s like the heat, the flies, the carcasses of buildings, the broken streets and the haphazard walls coming up out of nowhere all over the city…

Bush - "the nation must be prepared to conduct a draft"

CNN LATE EDITION WITH WOLF BLITZER - BUCHANAN: Osama bin Laden and his crew up there in Tora Bora did not stumble on a copy of the Bill of Rights and go berserk that Americans are free in the United States. Read his fatwa, his jihad. He declared war on us for three reasons, Wolf.
One, we're sitting with an imperial footprint on the sacred soil of Saudi Arabia. Second, we have these sanctions that are persecuting the Iraqi people, killing 1 million, which was an exaggeration. And third, we have an uncritical support of the state of Israel, which is stealing Palestinian land, dispossessing those people of rights which we preach to the whole world. That is what they say why they are attacking us. I think we should listen to them, since they're the ones attacking us, rather than folks here who say they don't like us because we have a Bill of Rights and separation of church and state, which is an argument I think which is unpersuasive to a second-grader.

The Planned World War 3 - A Play in Numerous Acts
A Three World War scenario was developed several decades ago (see Conspiratorial History). Two World Wars have already been achieved, and the Third and final World War envisions an attack on Iraq as being the trigger to set the entire Middle East into fiery conflagration. Once America is firmly entrenched into Iraq (or elsewhere in the Middle East - like Syria) with the majority of her first-line units, North Korea is to attack South Korea. Then, with America's forces stretched well beyond the limit, China is to invade Taiwan. This will usher in the start of World War Three.

"The Psycho State" 

The Psycho State

For people seeking progressive social change in the United States, removing George W. Bush from office should be the top priority in the 2004 presidential election.

This is an attack, a geopolitical attack, on a nuclear power, Russia; and, Putin, in plain language, without going further than need be said, is saying exactly that.

Putin's moves concern Powell U.S. says terror fight no excuse for curbing democratic reforms
Powell warned that the fight against terrorism should not become an excuse to move away from "democratic reforms of the democratic process."

The president said that each time Russia complained to the Bush administration about meetings held between U.S. officials and Chechen separatist representatives, the U.S. response has been “we’ll get back to you” or “we reserve the right to talk with anyone we want,” CNN quoted him as saying.


"The people who sent the terrorists to commit that utterly heinous crime harbored a hope to set on our peoples to fight with one another and unleash a bloody feud in Northern Caucasus...

...They still believe that Russia poses a threat to them as a nuclear power. That is why this threat must be eliminated, and terrorism is just another instrument in implementing their designs."

Putin Speech: "Terrorism is just another instrument in implementing their designs"

President Vladimir Putin accused the United States of undermining Russia's struggle against terror by meeting with Chechen separatists and rejected calls for a public inquiry into whether authorities mishandled the hostage-taking in Beslan

Russia: I'm Having Doubts...I am getting convinced more and more that this whole scam was pulled off by our secret services. But there is one thing that the scriptwriters overlooked: besides the actors, there were also 100 million viewers taking part in that show, and they are the ones who are interested in knowing the truth, which they will get sooner or later.
The first reports started coming in about the 'international staff ' of the group of hostage-takers. Then there was a report about a 'captured' terrorist. A tape came up, which was allegedly seized from the gunmen. I’m not trying to claim that this was the job of secret services, but nor do I have the bygone confidence that they were Chechens. Everything is too artificial and too confused in the versions that are being presented to us.

9/11 Pollution 'Could Cause More Deaths Than Attack'  

Up to 400,000 New Yorkers breathed in the most toxic polluting cloud ever recorded after the twin towers were brought down three years ago, but no proper effort has been made to find out how their health has been affected, according to an official report
The US government study provides the latest evidence of a systematic cover-up of the health toll from pollution after the 9/11 disaster, which doctors fear will cause more deaths than the attacks themselves.

The US government's own figures show that it contained the highest levels of deadly dioxins ever recorded - about 1,500 times normal levels. Unprecedented levels of acids, sulphur, fine particles, heavy metals and other dangerous materials were also measured.

Asbestos was found at 27 times acceptable levels, and scientists found about 400 organic alkanes, phthalates and polyaromatic hydrocarbons - many suspected of causing cancer and other long-term diseases.

The site at Ground Zero went on smoldering, becoming what scientists describe as a "chemical factory", creating new dangerous substances.
