The Life and Death of McCain Showed A Deep Degradation of American “Democracy” by Ruslan Ostashko

Translated and captioned by Leo. Make sure to press CC for English captions.   The Governor of Arizona offered to replace the deceased Senator John McCain… with his widow Cindy. Imagine what squealing would rise in Russia, with the sound of an offer to replace the deceased member of the Council of Federation with his wife. And in the US they are seriously discussing this “democratic” option.   John McCain

U.S. Sen. John McCain declared national hero of Georgia

RIA Novosti reports: Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili awarded on Monday the National Hero of Georgia title to U.S. Senator John McCain. McCain, along with Senators John Barrasso and John Thune, arrived in Georgia on Sunday. The award ceremony was held on Monday in the southwestern Georgian resort of Batumi. “The fact that a part of Georgia is free today is the achievement of our friends. It was the idea of

It will be is easier to live among people who rejected McCain

So Obama won, predictably I think. The McCain/Palin ticket was truly the perfect embodiment of everything the world hates about the USA. But that is not the important thing here. What is far more significant is that the McCain/Palin ticket also embodied what so many Americans hate about their own country and that is why Obama won such an overwhelming victory. The readers of this blog must know by now

A vote for either John McCain or Barack Obama is—at best—an act of criminal negligence.

by Mickey Z. for Dissident Voice You don’t stick a knife in a man’s back nine inches, and then pull it out six inches, and say you’re making progress. – Malcolm X Another Election Day approaches and I’m reminded of something the late Pakistani dissident, Eqbal Ahmad said about Noam Chomsky in the book, Confronting Empire (2000): “He (Chomsky) has never wavered.

Colin Powell takes the prize for the lamest endorsment ever

I just came across the transcript of Colin Powell’s endorsement of Barak Obama. Take a look: “So when I look at all of this and I think back to my Army career, we’ve got two individuals, either one of them could be a good president, but which is the president that we need now? Which is the individual that serves the needs of the nation for the next period of

So is there a difference between Obama and McCain? A guide for non-Americans

The readers of my blog know that I see no substantial difference between Obama and McCain, I have said so many times. The choice between these two is about as meaningful as the choice between the SA and the SS in Nazi Germany or between the Trotskysts and the Stalinists in the Soviet Union. In the context of the USA, I like the following metaphor: the choice between the two

Who is Randy Scheunemann?

McCain’s neocon warmonger by Pat Buchanan for World Net Daily He is the principal foreign policy adviser to John McCain and potential successor to Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski as national security adviser to the president of the United States. But Randy Scheunemann has another identity, another role. He is a dual loyalist, a foreign agent whose assignment is to get America committed to spilling the blood of her sons

John McCain’s AIPAC speech

John McCain. He makes Dubya look smart, articulate and almost educated. He makes Rumsfeld look like a pot-smoking peacenik. He makes Hillary look principled. But most frighteningly, he makes Hitler look sane. Though I intensely dislike Obama and Hillary (the latter being at least as sold to the Israel Lobby as McCain), there is something in McCain which makes him truly frightening, a sense of radiating utter lunacy, something about
