Seeking US Political Reform Through Solidarity / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

All over the Internet are sincere efforts to reform and improve America's political-government system. The downside is fragmentation of the subpopulation that has escaped brainwashing, cultural distraction, and self-delusion. Strategy solidarity is missing, but is possible.

Welcome to the new Cold War / Politics / Russia

By: Mike_Whitney

Presidents Bush and Putin concluded their brief summit in Kennebunkport, Maine without resolving any of the main issues. Bush seeks Putin's help to pressure Iran into giving up its nuclear enrichment program and Putin wants Bush to abandon his plans to deploy the US Missile Defense System in Czechoslovakia and Poland. No progress was made on either topic.

Russia and the United States are now more politically divided than any time since the breakup of the Soviet Union. In fact, following the meeting in Maine, first deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov, blasted Washington in the blistering rhetoric of the Cold War era:

The iMentality and Gadget Induced Coma's / Politics / Social Issues

By: Andy_Sutton

Economics has long been described by renowned Austrian economists as being the study of human action. The basis for this assertion is that human actions are what drive all decisions that relate to economics. Behind human actions are human thoughts. So when we seek to develop a better understanding of economics, then we'd better be in tune with what people are thinking. This is also an excellent explanation for why history tends to repeat itself. Human nature rarely changes or sees major paradigm shifts. In this regard, we do drive our own destiny. It is much better to understand history than ignore it. The former serves as a crystal ball where the latter dooms one to repetition.

China: The One-Child Policy Dilemma / Politics / China Economy

By: John_Mauldin

This week in a special Outside the Box my good friends at Stratfor addresses the current Chinese dilemma created by their One Child Policy, namely how to continue economic growth with a rapidly aging population coupled with a deteriorating labor force, mind you striving to attend to these issues simultaneously without creating significant rural unrest.

Stratfor predicts a less than somber outcome, anticipating Beijing' inability to address these dire concerns simultaneously, with the result being bureaucratic malaise and rural unrest.

Global Warming – Can scientists be blindly trusted? / Politics / Climate Change

By: Brian_Bloom

Introduction

Arising from earlier articles which I published on the subject of the possible causes of Global Warming, I have been in email communication with three “heavyweights” in the fields of Physics, Geophysics, Astronomy and Chemistry. These gentlemen have taken the trouble to point out where, as a layman, my knowledge of science was deficient. They have also educated me in the processes involved in the phenomenon – as they see these processes.

Of the three, one is committed to the linkage between Greenhouse Gases and Global Warming. The other two are not. I thank them for straightening out my thinking, and for enabling me to write the article below which sets out the state of play.

Financial Markets Update - Ahead to US Elections 2008 / Politics / US Utilities

By: Roger_Conrad

Political parties' power waxes and wanes in Washington, DC. But regardless of who's in or out, the size of our federal government and its social and economic mandate continue to grow, for better or for worse.

At its core, politics is about interest groups. Those who get their views heard and acted on are the winners. Those who don't—or, worse, are trumped by others' interests—are the losers. And the larger the government grows, the more critical it is to be on the winning side.

NHS Doctors are Terrorists, London and Glasgow Attacks / Politics / Iraq War

One of the doctors was the person to emerge on fire from the burning SUV Jeep at Glasgow Airport and is said to be from Iran. The other alleged doctor arrested on the M6 and is said to be of possible Jordanian origins and is thought to be behind the planning of the attacks.

Global Warming – Facts Trump Opinions / Politics / Climate Change

By: Brian_Bloom

The two previous articles which I wrote on the subject of Global Warming were seriously flawed in their science. As a result, I received a wave of emails.

If I offended anyone by having the temerity to talk about a subject in which I am clearly inadequate in my knowledge, I apologise. However, there was a method in my madness – as the following will hopefully reveal:

Gordon Brown Takes Over From Tony Blair - Any Difference? / Politics / UK Politics

By: John_York

The long goodbye is over, Tony Blair steps down as the British Prime Minister today and looks set to embark on a long cruise to the Mediterranean to help, did I say help ?, Apparently to help find peace in the middle east on behalf of the Quartet group (USA, EU, UN and Russia).

But now, finally, Gordon Brown, the man who has engineered 10 years of prosperity for Britain has his hands fully on the levers of power. What differences can we expect ?

Monetary Causes of the US Immigration Crisis / Politics / Immigration

By: Richard_C_Cook

There is nothing mysterious about the U.S. immigration crisis, or the presence of twelve million or more illegal aliens, or the fact that many more are coming to a neighborhood near you.

They are coming to the U.S. because they are human beings who have to eat.

They have to eat because they want to live.

They cannot eat and live in their own countries because there are no jobs.

Political Attention Deficit Disorder – New Psychiatric Condition Explains George Bush / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

According to a report not yet released, the Council on Science and Public Health of the American Medical Association has recommended that a chronic and widespread affliction of Americans be officially declared a psychiatric disorder. It has been named the Political Attention Deficit Disorder (PADD). It is recommended that the disorder be included in a widely used mental illness manual created and published by the American Psychiatric Association. The current manual was published in 1994; the next edition is to be completed in 2012. The benefit to people of an official classification is coverage by health insurance. Read full article...

Article V Convention, Are Americans Unready to Boil? / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

The frog-in-boiling water model helps us understand political upheavals: how citizens wake up early enough (or too late) to respond to social and economic oppression. Sometimes the greed and arrogance of Ruling Classes makes them careless and social waters heat too quickly. Sensing doom, alert citizen-frogs escape or revolt. Or they stay complacent and boil. The Bush Administration has turned the heat up on us, explaining why nearly 75 percent of Americans believe their country is on the wrong track and 70 percent think the economy is worsening.

Putin's War-whoop: The Impending Clash with Russia and the New Cold War / Politics / Russia

By: Mike_Whitney

What is a ‘unipolar' world?

It is world in which there is one master, one sovereign--- one center of authority, one center of force, one center of decision-making. And at the end of the day this is pernicious not only for all those within this system, but also for the sovereign itself because it destroys itself from within.

It has nothing in common with democracy, which is the power of the majority in respect to the interests and opinions of the minority.

The Battle of Gaza / Politics / Middle East

By: Mike_Whitney

In less than 24 hours of fierce street-fighting, Bush's proxy-army in Gaza was routed by armed units of Hamas. It was a stunning defeat for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, and for US-Israeli policymakers who have done everything in their power to overturn the “free and fair” election of the Hamas government. For now, Hamas has reestablished its authority in Gaza although Abbas is still working frantically with Bush and Olmert to consolidate his power in the West Bank.

Up and Down the Bush Philosophy / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

Every president has a political philosophy that guides him and, sometimes, the nation.

George W. Bush believes he has divine inspiration to do what he wants to do, when he wants to do it, and to make his subjects adhere to whatever beliefs he holds for the moment. His political philosophy is a chunk of swiss cheese that is being forced down the throats of a lactose-intolerant nation.

The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal national poll results vividly show a population incredibly dissatisfied with their nation's political system. In other countries in other times such a depressing level of confidence in government would send a signal to those running the government that a major upheaval is imminent. But not here in the USA.

Swan Song for the Democrats for Supporting the Iraq War / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

The Democrats did us all a favor by giving Bush his Iraq war-money. After all, the Dems have supported the war from the very beginning. They deserve to be exposed as the phonies they really are.

The truth is, no one is surprised by the recent vote. We have one party in America –  "the War Party" – the Dems are just a junior partner in that system.
