Antiwar Left Should Look Beyond Democrats

The left wing of the antiwar movement has some very serious problems, mainly our inability to recognize that the antiwar sentiment in the United States is resonating far beyond the confines of the so-called “left.” We cannot step back and effectively analyze the failures of the antiwar movement without peering under the hood of John … Continue reading “Antiwar Left Should Look Beyond Democrats”

Broken Promises and Barefaced Lies

We have observed the same song and dance so many times before it’s hard to believe more didn’t see it coming. The Democrats once again let down their constituents and all the other voters who ushered them in to power last November – believing, in utter stupidity, that they would somehow halt the madness of … Continue reading “Broken Promises and Barefaced Lies”

The Problem with Barack Obama’s Israel Pose

Sen. Barack Obama isn’t quite sure how he feels about the lopsided situation between Israel and Palestine. Less than two weeks after Obama gloated to AIPAC about his love for Israel, he unexpectedly admitted the truth while campaigning in Iowa recently. "[N]obody is suffering more than the Palestinian people…" said Obama, "the Israeli government must … Continue reading “The Problem with Barack Obama’s Israel Pose”

Time to Put Politics (and Dem Politicians) Aside

We should have known it was coming. Even though the Democratic Party rode the antiwar wave in to Congress last November, they’ve done little since to end the bloody war in Iraq. Just last week House Democrats met to discuss how best to halt Bush’s request to send more troops into the region, but they … Continue reading “Time to Put Politics (and Dem Politicians) Aside”

Hillary Clinton and
the Israel Lobby

George W. Bush’s position on Iran is “disturbing” and “dangerous,” reads a position paper written in late 2005 by American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). One year ago the Bush administration accepted a Russian proposal to allow Iran to continue to develop nuclear energy under Russian supervision. Needless to say, AIPAC wasn’t the least bit … Continue reading “Hillary Clinton and
the Israel Lobby”

Wake Me When It’s Over

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean has promised there will not be a change of course in Iraq if the Democrats take back Congress. Potential House leader Nancy Pelosi has assured voters that impeachment is not in the cards for Bush, either. Yet the liberal establishment is beckoning antiwar voters to clamor for the Democratic … Continue reading “Wake Me When It’s Over”

Snake Oil and the
Midterm Elections

So we are in the trenches of another election season, and if you peer closely you can see the explosions on the horizon. I’ve yet to be convinced the Democrats have the capacity to take back Congress, and to tell you the truth I don’t really care if they do. Not only do they not … Continue reading “Snake Oil and the
Midterm Elections”

Bye-Bye, Civil Liberties

I‘m still wondering where all the damn outrage is, and I’m not talking about the Foley scandal. On Sept. 29, the Senate voted 100-0 in favor of the pork-swollen Pentagon budget, which earmarked $70 billion for our ongoing military ventures in Iraq and Afghanistan. There was no debate over the appropriation, and not one Democrat … Continue reading “Bye-Bye, Civil Liberties”

Kidnapped in Israel or Captured in Lebanon?

As Lebanon continues to be pounded by Israeli bombs and munitions, the justification for Israel’s invasion is treading on very thin ice. It has become general knowledge that it was Hezbollah guerillas that first kidnapped two IDF soldiers inside Israel on July 12, prompting an immediate and violent response from the Israeli government, which insists … Continue reading “Kidnapped in Israel or Captured in Lebanon?”

Hillary May Be Presidential Material, After All

There really is no way of getting around it. Sen. Hillary Clinton may well be future presidential material. From Manhattan to Hollywood, Hillary Clinton is pocketing enormous amounts of cash for her reelection campaign. Yet, Hillary is facing what seems to be fierce opposition from within her own party, as well as from third parties … Continue reading “Hillary May Be Presidential Material, After All”
