By Peter Phillips The Barack Obama administration is continuing the neo-conservative agenda of US military domination of the world— albeit with perhaps a kinder-gentler face.  While overt torture is now forbidden for the CIA and Pentagon, and symbolic gestures like the closing of the Guantanamo prison are in evidence, a unilateral military dominance policy, expanding […]

An Election Without Meaning

By Peter Phillips Will November 2008 bring a meaningful change to America? Will getting rid of George W. Bush and Richard Cheney without impeachment or indictment really make a difference?

by Andrew Roth, Zoe Huffman, Jeffrey Huling, Kevin Stolle, and Jocelyn Thomas Sparing use of photographs is central to the management of war news. Consider two cases in point.

Truth Emergency US

By Peter Phillips and David Kubiak Many economists now doubt that government measures can prevent a major recession given the severe slump in the housing market, the subprime mortgage crisis, growing unemployment, declining consumer spending, and record high oil prices.

Fighting Terror with Terror

Guest article by Dr. Dennis Loo, Professor of Sociology at Cal Poly Pomona Bush and Cheney have not yet disappeared.

Corporate Media Bias & the Case of the Cuban Five

By Jeffrey Huling In 1998, the FBI arrested five Cubans in Miami for engaging in “espionage activity.” Oddly, the US government did not use the arrests to publicly demonize Castro, instead they stifled the potential political firestorm by placing the Five in solitary confinement for 17 months, — a violation of penitentiary regulations stipulating that […]

Impeachment is Not Off the Table

By Peter Phillips Nancy Pelosi declared on national television “impeachment is off the table.” Impeachment, it seems, is too divisive for a 2008-oriented Democratic Party leadership and will interfere with the business of Congress over the next two years. The Democrats seem to be giving a pardon to Bush and Cheney without even having a […]

National Impeachment Movement Ignored by Corporate Media

By Peter Phillips If a national movement calling for the impeachment of the President is rapidly emerging and the corporate media are not covering it, is there really a national movement for the impeachment of the President?

Big Media Interlocks with Corporate America

Peaking of World Oil Production

The peaking of world oil production presents the U.S. and the world with an unprecedented risk management problem. As peaking is approached, liquid fuel prices and price volatility will increase dramatically, and, without timely mitigation, the economic, social, and political costs will be unprecedented.
