Neocon-o- m: A Real Threat to America
25 May 2008
Contemplate a connection between Leo Strauss, the NeoCons, and m in general—to see if there are any connections—especially since it has been the NeoCons’ strategy to consistently use their racist term “Islamo m” and to argue Arabs and Muslims are America’s boogeymen. The manipulation of American xenophobia and ignorance of foreigners are the anthropological realities of what has happened here in the United States via the propaganda machines run by the powers-that-be and pro-lobbyists (see Daniel Lazare’s “Lobbying Degree Zero” in The Nation Oct. 22, 2007).

Barack Obama and the War
25 May 2008
As Barack Obama’s anti-war rhetoric is blasted around the country in his attempt to seal the Democratic nomination, his real position on U.S. militarism is being revealed discretely to his political, military, and corporate colleagues.

Two recent examples prove beyond any doubt that Obama is in total conformity with the U.S. ruling class on the issue of maintaining – or even expanding – the role of the military in the Middle East. This of course is the complete opposite of what he tells those who fill stadiums to hear him speak.

The first example came on April 7th, when both the top U.S. diplomat and military man in Iraq – Ambassador Crocker and General Petraeus – came to testify before two separate Congressional committees. This was an opportunity, the Obama and Clinton campaigns boasted, for the two potential nominees to show they have the ability to perform as the country’s Commander and Chief.

For a New "New Deal" Party
25 May 2008
The left must use the great current financial crisis to critically test all of today's liberal dogmas-from unbridled free trade and the systematic repression of the state to the sacrifice of developed modern industry to the dogma of free competition and draft alternative scenarios.
