George Bush in Danger While on Middle East Tour? / Politics / Middle East

By: Ian_Brockwell

George Bush in Danger While on Middle East Tour? The recent “Al Qaeda” video, which was posted just days before George Bush's trip to the Middle East, urges fighters to meet the President with bombs.

U.S.-born Adam Gadahn, who appears on the almost one hour long video, was quoted as saying in Arabic “Now we direct an urgent call to our militant brothers in Muslim Palestine and the Arab peninsula .. to be ready to receive the Crusader slayer Bush in his visit to Muslim Palestine and the Arab peninsula in the beginning of January and to receive him not with flowers or clapping but with bombs and booby-trapped vehicles”

IOWA Votes For Change, Barack Obama Wins but Ron Paul Rejected / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

Ron Paul's obnoxious supporters like more traditional political activists can spin and delude themselves about election results. But the Iowa caucus results could not be clearer: The vast national desire for political change is manifesting itself through support for both Democratic and Republican change-candidates. Despite Paul being flush with money and having a large number of workers in Iowa, he was solidly rejected as the leading change agent.

NHS Patients Told to Treat Themselves - Gordon Browns New Idea for 2008

Gordon Browns big new idea for the NHS for 2008 is for patients to apparently diagnose and treat themselves. This is being packaged up in the form of a constitution for the NHS but the aim is that after having failed to meet the nations health needs despite a tripling in the annual NHS budget. The goal now is to reduce patients reliance on the NHS with patients having to increasingly pay for treatment privately.

Problems with Maverick Ron Paul's Policies / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

It's as if a whole lot of people have caught a virus that I have escaped. People that I thought had correctly rejected the current corrupt two-party controlled political system have flocked to Paul. So I went back and re-read most of his published columns and examined in detail his voting record. I can understand why such a maverick politician is so attractive to people fed up with the current system. But I consistently have seen so many problems with Paul that I cannot support his candidacy and I still maintain that he never stood a chance of getting the Republican nomination.

Third of GP's Incompetent at Referring Breast Cancer Patients / Politics / NHS

By: N_Walayat

A shocking report by the research group "Breakthrough Breast Cancer" reveals that as many as a third of GP's are failing to refer patients with suspected breast cancer as urgent cases. Which is one of the core reasons why Britain lags behind most of Europe in terms of cancer deaths. Even behind many poorer eastern european countries that spend less than 1/3rd the amount the UK spends on the National health Service.GP's failure to properly understand the procedures for urgent referral of suspected breast cancer cases costs thousands of lives every year.

US Presidential Elections are a Sham! / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

Every four years the country is swept up in the pomp and pageantry of presidential elections. And every four years loyal Americans flock to the voting booths to select the candidate of their choice. Elections--we are told---are supposed to be the true expression of democratic government. But they aren't. They're a sham and most people know it. The balloting creates the illusion of choice where there is none. It's become a meaningless ritual that has nothing to do with representative government.

US 2008 Presidential Election: Important Concepts About Monetary Policy and History / Politics / US Politics

By: Richard_C_Cook

The 2008 presidential election campaign starts in earnest on January 3 with the Iowa caucuses, followed a few days later by the New Hampshire primary. While all of the Republican candidates except Ron Paul have totally ignored economic issues, the Democrats are all sounding more “populist” than at any time since the Great Depression. Nevertheless, with the exception of Dennis Kucinich, they all swallow in its totality the debt-based monetary system overseen by the Federal Reserve which is at the root of the escalating crisis.

Putin's Rebuilt Russia Prepares for US Missile Defense Flash point 2008 / Politics / Russia

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's been a lot of hard work, but Russian President Vladimir Putin has finally achieved his goal. He's cleaned up the mess left behind by Yeltsin, put together a strong and thriving economy, and restored Russia to a place of honor among the community of nations. His legacy has already been written. He's the man who rebuilt Russia. The last thing he wants now, is a pointless confrontation with the United States. But how can it be avoided? He understands Washington's long-range plans for Russia and he is taking necessary steps to preempt them. He is familiar with the heavyweights of US foreign policy, like Zbigniew Brzezinski, and has undoubtedly read his master-plan for Central Asia, “The Grand Chessboard”. Brzezinski's recent article in Foreign Affairs, (A publication of the Council on Foreign Relations) “A Geostrategy for Eurasia” summarizes his views on America's future involvement in the region:

Ron Paul on the Importance of Fiscal Responsibility in US Government / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

As the year draws to a close, the battle over spending in Washington is heating up.  The Democrats want to expand government healthcare, while the President has vetoed the second attempt to expand SCHIP.  

The latest version of the State Children's Health Insurance Program would have expanded the entitlement program and raised taxes, just as the earlier version did and the President showed fiscal restraint with his veto.

Iran - Bombed if you do, Bombed if you Don't / Politics / Iran

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The latest National Intelligence Estimate has been greeted by a mixture of relief and alarm. As I have been saying all along, Iran indeed poses no quantifiable imminent nuclear threat to us or her neighbors. It is with much alarm, however, that we see the administration continue to ratchet up the war rhetoric as if nothing has changed.

Why Austrailia's Trade Unions Sponsored Work Study is Worthless / Politics / Austrailia

By: Gerard_Jackson

The aim of Buchanan and Woonay's Australia at Work study is to persuade people that free labour markets drive down real wage rates because labour lacks the power to defend itself against capitalists. Yet every single critic of this so-called study missed this vital point. What we got were conservative economic illiterates like Janet Albrechtsen, Andrew Bolt and Imre Saluszinsky (all of whom are from the Murdoch stable) engaging in ad hominem attacks instead of dealing with Buchanan and Woonroy's underlying assumption that free labour markets are exploitive.

Iran Nuclear Intelligence; Now Off the Hook or On the Hook? / Politics / Iran

By: Anwaar_Hussain

The bolt from the blue called the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran, which was released on Monday the 3rd of December, reported “with high confidence that in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program ‘because of international pressure'.”

The NIE, in reality, is a final acknowledgement, and a sort of culmination, of a long trail of track-2 diplomacy and intel gathering that the US State department and intelligence agencies have been conducting, and misconducting, with their Iranian counterparts for some time now.

Kasparov Cries - Putin is the New Stalin / Politics / Russia

Garry Kasparov should give up politics and do what he does best; stand-up comedy.

Watching Kasparov traipse around Moscow with his basket of sour grapes and his entourage of western media-stooges is like watching "Mr. Bean's Excellent Kremlin Adventure"---a particularly lame performance in a dismal B-rated burlesque. It's painful to watch.
