Sicko! Gets Oscar Nod

"Sicko" Gets the Oscar High-Five: A note from Michael Moore
by Michael Moore
Friends; I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know (if you didn't already) the good news that "Sicko" has been nominated for this year's Academy Award for Best Documentary.
 
It was a pleasant surprise when we got the news on Tuesday.

Of course, every reporter who's called me in the past few days wanted to know if I plan on giving an "anti-war" or "anti-Bush" speech, should "Sicko" win, as I did when we won the Oscar for "Bowling for Columbine" in 2003.

The 9/11 Blacklist Campaign

9/11 Blacklist: Using Our Dollars for Change
by Peter Zaza
In the six years since the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, the mainstream media in America has largely been a mouthpiece of the Bush administration.
 
 
All of the major networks including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and others had until recently, been silently complicit in the cover-up of the events of that day, the un-Constitutional wars that would follow, and the steady erosion of our Constitutionally protected rights.

When the “9-11 Truth” community grew to the point that it could no longer be ignored, these same networks that had ignored the issue for so long began to attack individuals and groups of individuals who were seeking answers to the lingering questions which still remain about 9-11.

Why We (Canadians) Fight in Afghanistan

Annals of Liberation: 'Good War' Goons Crush Press Freedom        
by Chris Floyd     
For a media story that might possibly be slightly more important than the momentous blogswarm victory over Chris Matthews, concerned netizens could turn their attention to the atrocious case of Sayed Perwiz Kaambaksh, a 23-year-old Afghan student who has been sentenced to death for printing an allegedly blasphemous article downloaded from the internet, as CNN reports.

Kaambaksh was tried in a closed court, without legal representation, by officials of the government installed by George Bush's "good war" crusade to, you know, liberate the Afghan people from the religious repression of Taliban extremists.

But it seems that in this case – as in so many others – religious crankery is being used as a cover for political chicanery.

Harper: Appeasing Israel

Zionist Appeasement: A Blight on the Canadian Political Landscape
by Kim Petersen
Ever since the Conservative Party formed a minority government in the ethnically cleansed territory designated Canada, an abrupt rightward shift has occurred in Canadian government policy.
 
The Conservative Party has chosen to openly support the zionist regime in the ethnically cleansed historical Palestine -- what the ethnic cleansers have renamed Israel.

But to target only the Conservative Party of Canada would be unfair because the other three major political parties in Canada are also infiltrated by Zionist appeasers.[1]

Two Jewish Jokes (and a Hain in the Middle)

Two Jewish Jokes (and a Hain in the Middle)
by Gilad Atzmon
A story is told of a Londoner, a Jewish man who was riding on the London Underground reading an Arab newspaper.
 
UK MP, Peter Hain - fast and loose with political contributions? 
 
A friend of his, who happened to be riding in the same underground car, noticed this strange phenomenon. Very upset, he approached the newspaper reader.

"Moishe, have you lost your mind? Why are you reading an Arab newspaper?" Moishe replied, "I used to read the Jewish newspaper, but what did I find? Jews being persecuted, Israel being attacked, Jews disappearing through assimilation and intermarriage, Jews living in poverty. So I switched to the Arab newspaper. Now what do I find? Jews own all the banks, Jews control the media, Jews are all rich and powerful, Jews rule the world. The news is so much better!"

Truth must be said, Moishe, is telling the truth here. The Jewish press in Britain is panicking lately and they have good reason, too.

Political Prosecution Under the Microscope

A Political Prosecution Goes Under the Microscope
by Scott Horton
Has the Bush Justice Department used the criminal justice system to punish its political adversaries all across the country? As the countdown begins to the end of the Bush Administration, abuse of the criminal justice system is finally coming into focus.

Within the Justice Department itself, the Office of Professional Responsibility and the Inspector General are conducting a joint investigation into the case of the “Gonzales Eight,” namely the firing of eight U.S. attorneys on December 7, 2006.
 
Preliminary inquiries by Congress produced the resignation in disgrace of most of the senior leadership of the Justice Department, including Attorney General Gonzales. Now we hear that Alberto Gonzales has “lawyered up” — for good reason.

Demystifying Canadian Justice

Time to Demystify Canada's Judiciary
by Robin Mathews
Time to Demystify Canada’s Judiciary. Time to (re)Open Canada’s Courts.

Canada has long protected – by giving them a large measure of trust – a few special forces in our society. As long as they warranted the trust, the protection was well given. For Canadians have known that trust is the glue that holds difference together in democratic societies.

Canadians had trusted the RCMP, for instance, until recently when the brazen arrogance and privilege of some RCMP officers have broken the spell.

Miracles of the Middle East: Israel

The True Miracle of Israel
by Ramzy Baroud
Israelis and their supporters tend to depict Israel as a country of miracles. What else could explain the country's astonishing "birth" and subsequent survival against all sorts of "existential threats"? How else would Israel develop at such a phenomenal pace, making the "desert bloom" and continually scoring a high ranking amongst developed nations in most noteworthy aspects?

Meanwhile, Palestinians continue to be depicted as "their own worst enemies", a people who "never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity" and who stand outside the parameters of rational human behaviour. Israel is often, if not always, contrasted against a regional backdrop of "backward", "undemocratic" and essentially violent Arabs and Muslims.

Canada's Military in Iraq

Canadian General Takes Senior Command Role in Iraq
by Jon Elmer and Anthony Fenton
Despite the government's official position abstaining from combat in Iraq, Canada has dispatched yet another top general to the command group overseeing day-to-day operations for the U.S.-led occupation and counterinsurgency war.

Brigadier-General Nicolas Matern, a Special Forces officer and former commander of Canada's elite counter-terrorism unit, will serve as deputy to Lt. Gen. Lloyd Austin III, incoming commander of the 170,000-strong Multi National Corps-Iraq beginning in mid-February.

The Unmaking of a Nation - Harper's Golden Spike

The Unmaking of a Nation - Harper's Golden Spike
by C. L. Cook
Canada has again distinguished itself in the United Nations for a singular commitment to the destruction of the Palestinian people. Recall Canada, great paragon of democracy, in the days following the 2006 Hamas electoral victory in remnant Palestine, being first to charge the world stage and declare support for Israel's announced sanctions and divestment campaign against the nascent government.
 
Israel, also "in protest" of vile Hamas, refused to remit Israeli collected taxes owed the legally elected administration. A red-faced Harper then declared to the world, he would not have over "one red cent" of Canadian aid monies to Hamas.

Baquba: Life Among the Ruins

Under Curfew, This Is No Life
by Ahmed Ali and Dahr Jamail
Continuing curfew has brought normal life to a standstill in Baquba, capital of the restive Diyala province north of Baghdad.

Through nearly three decades of rule under Saddam Hussein, Iraqis witnessed only two curfews; for the census in the 1970s and 1980s. Under the U.S.-led occupation of Iraq, curfews are commonplace, enforced whenever the Iraqi government and U.S. military fail to control the situation on the ground.
