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.

Americans Unready to Revolt, Despite Revolting Conditions / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

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. Why?

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.

Open Letter to Congressman Ron Paul / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

You have acknowledged the appropriateness of amending the Constitution. In fact, you introduced legislation for an amendment that would stop giving automatic citizenship to babies born in the U.S. to non-citizen parents. You said: “Our founders knew that unforeseen problems with our system of government would arise, and that's precisely why they gave us a method for amending the Constitution. It's time to rethink birthright citizenship by amending the 14th amendment.”

Bush's New Middle East - Interference in Lebanon / Politics / Middle East

By: Mike_Whitney

It's hard to know what Bush hopes to accomplish by backing the bloody siege of the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp, but one thing is certain; things are never as they seem. In an interview on Democracy Now last week, investigative reporter Seymour Hersh stated that, Fatah al-Islam — the group of Sunni extremists inside the camp — were getting material support from the Saudis, the Bush administration and members of the Lebanese political establishment.

We all know the drill by now. Whenever a politician with character and principles throws his hat in the ring the media descends on him like feral hounds on a pork chop. It’ll be no different with Paul. The only difference this time is that we should all be aware of what’s really going on.

Ron Paul, Gold and “L'Infamie” / Politics / US Politics

By: Mario_Innecco

William Guy Carr, in his book entitled Pawns in the Game , describes how the Powers That Be have throughout history tried to discredit people or institutions that have threatened their power. The strategy described by Mr. Carr is called l'infamie which is French for infamy. In Pawns in the Game Carr describes how campaigns of l'infamie were started against Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette during the French revolution and also against Tsar Nicholas II during the Soviet revolution of 1917. Human nature does not alter with the passage of time and with that in mind we have detected the following campaigns of l'infamie.

China, U.S.: The Strategic Economic Dialogue as a Tool for Managing Relations / Politics / China Economy

By: John_Mauldin

As the forth largest economy in the world, the rapid growth of Communist China' military, and economic prominence has both perplexed and intrigued the United States. Stratfor analyst Rodger Baker addresses the two primary economic concerns troubling Washington and Wall Street alike: the Chinese-U.S. trade imbalance, and the floatation of the renminbi, currently pegged at 7.8 Yuan to the dollar, though allowed to fluctuate 2-3%.

Washington has identified the currency dilemma as the primary obstacle to improved U.S.- Chinese relations, concluding that the removal of the currency peg will not only permit U.S. exports to be more competitive but also shrink the current trade imbalance.

Paulson’s Kabuki: Integrating China into the Neoliberal System / Politics / China Economy

By: Mike_Whitney

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson is a man who knows what he wants. And what he wants is to further integrate the Chinese market into the global system — the “American-run” system.

To achieve that goal he has assembled a group of 10 cabinet-level officials—mostly from big-business – who will are expected to urge the Chinese delegation to implement "sweeping economic reforms" that will open up their market to U.S. investment.

Tony Blair made his final farewell visit to Iraq today as British Prime Minister. The Invasion of Iraq is seen as the primary reason of why he is now being forced from office. As in the past no apologies were forthcoming on the disastrous decision to follow the Bush Administration into Iraq in 2003 on the basis of flimsy if not completely false propaganda.

Britain's NHS - Free for ALL but Worthless for Many! / Politics / NHS

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The NHS Hospitals and GP surgeries routinely discriminate against patients, the degree of discrimination varies but the end result is if you are a vocal white middle class non smoker then you will generally receive the best the NHS has to offer. On the other hand, if you are non-white, poor, disabled, obese, or a smoker then you will be discriminated against. So the politicians cry of free healthcare only applies to some and not to many !

Delusional President, Insane Iraq War, Finding Hope In A Dismal World / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

For so many, hope is down the drain. Hard to fault them. Abundant evidence shows our insane world sliding down a global cheese grater.

Fish are dying in the Great Lakes. Bees have disappeared. Polar ice caps and glaciers worldwide are melting faster than ever. A global pandemic of a drug-resistant strain of TB is coming at us. Much of the U.S. food supply is highly vulnerable because of imports and totally inadequate government scrutiny. Politicians keep lying. Americans keep dying.
