Lifting the Media Black Out on the Greens

A Candid Interview with GREEN’S Victoria Running Candidate
by Diane Walsh
Adam Saab is a new guy on the election scene.  Not surprisingly, people are curious to know, “what’s this dude really about anyway?” As the Green Party’s candidate for the electoral district of Victoria, he’s got his work cut out for him.
 
"Without referring to specific journalists or media organizations, I would agree that there is a hesitancy to give credit or even thorough coverage as well as some degree of accepted patronizing that takes place.  I am optimistic, however, that this will improve to some degree in this election."

Taking on the Military Industrial Complex

Taking on the Military Industrial Complex 
by TRNN
Endless wars, abuse of powers, declining living standards, and the climate change crisis—the stakes couldn't be greater in the US 2008 presidential elections. And with your help, we're moving our news operation to Washington, DC, where we'll focus on money and corruption.
 
 
 
For example, big oil and arms companies shape American economic and foreign policy with far-reaching effects on the lives of ordinary people, with allies in government, trade unions, the media, and the think tanks. They are a hidden hand that controls the commanding heights of American politics.

Passing: Philanthropist, Actor, Race Car Driver, Paul Newman

Paul Newman, movie and racing icon, dead at 83
by CBC News
Paul Newman, in Philadelphia in August 2005 after meeting with city officials to discuss bringing a Champ Car series to the city, was as passionate about the race-car world as he was about the entertainment world.
 
Paul Newman, the blue-eyed leading man who starred in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and gained prominence for his philanthropic work and love of racing, died Friday at 83 after a long battle with cancer.

He died at his farmhouse in Westport, Conn., surrounded by friends and family, publicist Jeff Sanderson said.

Are We On The Verge of the Deluge?

New Questions as the Bailout Sparks a War: Are We On The Verge of the Deluge?
by Danny Schechter
The Hank and Ben Show was doing so well in the ratings. They crafted a plan — ok, only three pages, but still a prodigious effort in an era when so few can agree on the need for heat on a freezing day. But now the great unraveling has begun. Remember Karl on the dialectic: thesis leads to antithesis resulting in synthesis. Maybe.
 
Danny Schechter will appear on this week's Gorilla Radio, S29 5pm pacific time. CFUV.UVIC.ca
They sold the Democrats on the need for a bailout. They made it big so the rest of the world would notice and be impressed. They started out unreasonably demanding total power knowing they would have to compromise and so allow all sides to win something and hence come aboard.

Rip-Off of the Century

Once in a Century Rip-off
by TRNN
Economist Michael Hudson: The bailout is a giveaway that will cause hyperinflation and dollar collapse.

  

Bailout talks stall as Bush meets with Congressional leaders and Presidential candidates. German Finance Minister says US will no longer be the financial Superpower. French President Sarkozy says the days when "the all powerful market is always right are over". The Real News Network spoke to economist and historian Dr. Michael Hudson who says that it's not a "bailout" but a "giveaway" and will create a new kleptocracy of billionaires.

Bailout: Resisting The Shock This Time

Now is the Time to Resist Wall Street's Shock Doctrine
by Naomi Klein
I wrote The Shock Doctrine in the hopes that it would make us all better prepared for the next big shock. Well, that shock has certainly arrived, along with gloves-off attempts to use it to push through radical pro-corporate policies (which of course will further enrich the very players who created the market crisis in the first place...).

The best summary of how the right plans to use the economic crisis to push through their policy wish list comes from Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich. On Sunday, Gingrich laid out 18 policy prescriptions for Congress to take in order to "return to a Reagan-Thatcher policy of economic growth through fundamental reforms."

How Israeli Technology Compromised US National Security

Trojan Horse: How Israeli Backdoor Technology Penetrated the US Government's Telecom System and Compromised National Security
by Christopher Ketcham
Since the late 1990s, federal agents have reported systemic communications security breaches at the Department of Justice, FBI, DEA, the State Department, and the White House.
 
Several of the alleged breaches, these agents say, can be traced to two hi-tech communications companies, Verint Inc. (formerly Comverse Infosys), and Amdocs Ltd., that respectively provide major wiretap and phone billing/record-keeping software contracts for the US government.Together, Verint and Amdocs form part of the backbone of the government's domestic intelligence surveillance technology.
 
Both companies are based in Israel – having arisen to prominence from that country's cornering of the information technology market – and are heavily funded by the Israeli government, with connections to the Israeli military and Israeli intelligence (both companies have a long history of board memberships dominated by current and former Israeli military and intelligence officers).

The result: in the 2004 presidential election, over three million votes - 3,006,080 - were cast and not counted. Like, what the !@#!?

Too Big to Jail?

Too Big to Jail?
by C. L. Cook
We've heard some Wall Street firms are too big to fail, but what about the bandits behind the wheel, are they too big to jail?
 
The FBI announced launching fraud investigations for 24 Wall St. players Wednesday (S24); but, can we realistically expect criminal charges be brought against any company officers? 
 
The current line taken by the Bush administration, the McCain presidential campaign, and the Democratic party leadership treats the financial train wreck overtaking the world's financial markets as more a kind of Act of God than the predictable results of the Bush and Clinton administrations' years of deregulation and rigging the system to favour (and fabulously profit) the very actors now howling for federal relief.
