Bush To America: Our Justice System Sucks Balls

Thursday, 7 September 2006 4:11 P GMT-05
Yeah, laws suck, man. Especially when you wanna break them. And between the praise of torture (no matter what Bush calls it), the dismissing of the American justice system, and the vow to continue all of it, the Rude Pundit is left with this question: exactly what country are we fighting for? Because it's become appallingly clear that it sure as hell ain't the United States in any recognizable form anymore.

Dissecting the war on terror

Thursday, 7 September 2006 3:55 P GMT-05
The best way to get to the heart of the ‘war on terror’ is by exploring its historical foundation; the development of such political charades has a long and squalid past. If history has taught us anything, it’s that barefaced democracy, under capitalism, is an unstable and fleeting occurrence. One needs only to reflect upon the great democratic revolutions throughout history to make the desired point.

Laid Bare for All to See

After Riddick became pregnant from a rape, doctors on the Eugenics Board of North Carolina decided in 1968 that she was too "feeble-minded" to ever be a good mother and wanted to ensure that she never would get pregnant again. So doctors tied her tubes and didn't tell her.

Planet of the Arabs (video)

Thursday, 7 September 2006 1:29 P GMT-05
This 9-minute feature is an acute dramatization that uses a collection of Hollywood clips from 1896-2000, that negatively depict Arabs, to demonstrate how badly the West has been brainwashed through fiction to fear and despise Arabs in real life.

Vietnam confirms detention of U.S. citizen

Thursday, 7 September 2006 1:05 P GMT-05

70% of Ground Zero workers have major health problems

Thursday, 7 September 2006 1:15 A GMT-05
I'm in a truly foul mood. In this "all 9/11 propaganda all the time" world we are in now, especially as we are coming up on the 5th anniversary of the attacks, a major study to be released tomorrow by The Mount Sinai Medical Center will provide more proof that politics, warmongering, lies, propaganda, photo ops and flat out negligence by the Bush Administration, as well as NYC Mayor Bloomberg are more important than the extremely brave people who worked tirelessly at Ground Zero in the days and weeks after the attacks.

Bush admits to CIA secret prisons

Wednesday, 6 September 2006 8:14 P GMT-05

To Stay Alive, Iraqis Change Their Names

Wednesday, 6 September 2006 8:04 P GMT-05
To have to hide one’s name is considered deeply shameful. But with sectarian violence surging, Iraqis fear that the name on an identification card, passport or other document could become an instant death sentence if seen by the wrong people. That is because some first names and tribal names indicate whether a person is Sunni or Shiite. A first name of Omar is popular among Sunnis, for example, as is Ali among Shiites.

Why 9/11 Truth is Good for America

Wednesday, 6 September 2006 7:48 P GMT-05
Because many minds are better than one, please submit your best, most persausive arguments about why 9/11 truth is good for America and why these folks should stop blocking 9/11 truth and start working for 9/11 justice.

Dear Rummy

Wednesday, 6 September 2006 6:10 P GMT-05
By refusing to withdraw from the lost wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, what you are doing is sacrificing soldier’s lives, and $6.5–7 billion a month, to save the skins of your political masters who lack the courage and patriotism to admit the failure of their foolish imperial dreams.

Don't believe Rumsfeld's fantasy

Wednesday, 6 September 2006 5:33 P GMT-05
The war on terror has, after all, been this gang's get-out-of-jail-free card for years. High gas prices, a hurricane fiasco, red ink, an overall patina of ineptness overtopped by arrogance, and it's all forgotten the moment they say 9/11. Small wonder they say it loudly now with midterm elections looming and polls suggesting more Americans are seeing through the president like Saran Wrap.

Afghanistan: High on Opium, Not Democracy

Wednesday, 6 September 2006 5:29 P GMT-05
Remember them, the guys who harbored the Al Qaeda terrorists, who gifted us with the 9/11 attacks five years ago, that President Bush promised to eliminate? Well, it turns out that while he was distracted with Iraq, the patrons of terrorism were very much in business back where the 9/11 attack was hatched, turning Afghanistan into a narco-state that provides a lucrative source of cash for the “evildoers” Bush forgot about.

Tomgram: Rosner and Markowitz, 9/11 as the First Katrina Moment

Tuesday, 5 September 2006 5:42 P GMT-05
Putting in place a dysfunctional bureaucracy would soon undermine the public's trust in the whole health system in downtown Manhattan. In the process, it also effectively crippled systems already in existence to protect workers, local residents, and children attending school in the area. As a result, what promised to be an extraordinary example of a government bureaucracy actually working turned into a disaster and later became the de facto model for the Federal response to Hurricane Katrina.

Abu Abdullah: the Perfect Psycho Patsy

Tuesday, 5 September 2006 4:18 P GMT-05
Even though Abdullah has been kicked out of every mosque in Britain, because he is obviously a psychopathic madman, he remained “unchecked by the authorities five months after a law was passed making it a criminal offense to glorify terrorism,” according to the Times Online. Obviously, this is the case because Abu is a patsy-in-waiting, on hold for the next fake terrorist attack, or rather spoiled terrorist attack, that is to say made-up nonsense.

Security, Secrecy and a Bush Brother

Tuesday, 5 September 2006 4:03 P GMT-05

Liberty, Power, and the Constitution

Tuesday, 5 September 2006 3:47 P GMT-05
Inevitably the federal government is portrayed not as the potential threat to the people but rather as their friend and their provider. And those millions of public-school students all across the nation ultimately grow up into adults who carry that mindset into their later years. The result is a nation of people who look upon the federal government as their provider and protector rather than as the main threat to their rights and freedoms.

Sweet Pea owners: 'We didn't want this'

Tuesday, 5 September 2006 3:40 P GMT-05

Beware The Rise Of The Fourth Reich

Tuesday, 5 September 2006 4:13 A GMT-05
I watch as everything I was educated to believe in crumbles around me. I watch as there are secret detentions, extraordinary renditions, secret trials, disappeared, people held with no charges and no evidence, searched without judicial review and without their knowledge, a homeland security office that last spoke of round ups of "disgruntled" and people from 33 nationalities. At the same time, our unused military bases are being turned into concentration camps. And, this is just the start, the time before the sunset provisions of the Patriot Act or being eliminated either through the Hatch bill or by the Domestic Security Act... I watch and I am afraid...

Tuesday, 5 September 2006 4:03 A GMT-05
While Michigan is probably suffering the most of any state in the union, only four states and the District of Columbia have shown any increase in median incomes.

Why the Media Can't Stop Smearing Joe Wilson

Tuesday, 5 September 2006 12:29 A GMT-05
As we explain below, the evidence is overwhelming that the White House assault on Wilson was planned weeks before he published an Op-Ed on July 6, 2003, accusing Bush of twisting the yellowcake claim – and that Bush’s operatives responded by pointing journalists toward Plame’s identity.

Our Fascism, and Theirs

Monday, 4 September 2006 5:03 P GMT-05
Roosevelt was a lot smarter than the current crop of warmongers, however, in that he pursued his goal – involving the U.S. in a world war – by indirection and stealth. In 1939, the strategy of the War Party was to gradually but persistently push the U.S. into war via a series of provocations, both overt and covert: this crowd is opposed in principle to such subtlety.

Why The 9/11 Conspiracies Won't Go Away

Monday, 4 September 2006 4:40 P GMT-05
And what are the chances that an operation of such size--it would surely have involved hundreds of military and civilian personnel--could be carried out without a single leak? Without leaving behind a single piece of evidence hard enough to stand up to scrutiny in a court? People, the feds just aren't that slick. Nobody is. Nobody is??? Apparently Osama Bin Laden is since the FBI themselves stated there is no hard evidence linking Bin Laden to the attacks.
