A Palestinian `Resistance` View

While we wait for US Secretary of State John Kerry to contemplate the revolver on the silver tray and write his suicide note, readers will recall an earlier article telling of my failed attempts to conduct an interview with the PLO's Dr Hanan Ashrawi and posting the unanswered questions instead.

(LONDON) - Palestine resistance After 66 years of brutal occupation “peace talks without applying the principles of International Law are an exercise in delusion”.

As expected, the 'peace' talks farce has ended in disarray with all parties utterly discredited again. Do they never learn? Expect more acrobatics and slapstick if the same circus clowns remain in the ring.

(DULUTH, MN) - american police state I was one of many progressive Americans who were rudely - and belatedly - awakened to reality during the era of Ronald Wilson Reagan.

He and his henchmen forced through, with gleeful help from devious NeoConservative Republicans and compliant NeoLiberal Democrats, the massive borrowing and spending programs (that put America’s economy into a $4 trillion deficit, a deficit that benefited the military industrial complex, the nuclear weapons industry, and Reagan’s crony capitalists.

America is an Oligarchy, University Study Finds

When the economic elites want something, it tends to happen, and if they don’t want something, it tends not to happen.

Say No to Big Money

We’ve already seen the results of Citizens United.  We know what happens when the special interests are left unchecked.  We know what the Koch Brothers, Karl Rove and their deep-pocketed friends can do when they have free reign to spend and spend and spend on political campaigns.

(WASHINGTON DC) - Senator Ron Wyden You’ve heard me say it before: The Supreme Court’s recent decision in McCutcheon v. FEC is another crack in the dam standing between us and unlimited political spending.

``Killing George Bush``

This morning's piece on "Mike Palecek & The New American Dream"

(WASHINGTON DC) - George H.W. Bush YOU MIGHT HAVE SEEN that George H.W. Bush still lives.
