 Man Indicted for Using Right to Free Speech: ICH - Information Clearing House

 Man Indicted for Using Right to Free Speech   : ICH - Information Clearing House: "Consider what happened to an unemployed American, Bruce Shore, because of e-mails he sent to the Web site of U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning, R-Ky. As reported by Arthur Delaney on huffingtonpost.com, Shore, watching the Senate in inaction on C-Span, was angered when Bunning complained that, gosh, he has missed the Kentucky-South Carolina basketball game because he had to be in Congress to debate an unemployment benefits bill."

OpEdNews - Article: Oliver Stone's "Border" Shows Fall of South America's Berlin Wall

OpEdNews - Article: Oliver Stone's "Border" Shows Fall of South America's Berlin Wall: "The story of this dramatic transformation has been largely untold in the United States. Our major corporate media are largely uninterested in the freedom narrative of South America, because it's significantly a narrative of freedom from control by U.S. institutions, and because the battle is ongoing, as shown recently by Washington's fury at Brazil for working against a U.S. push for new sanctions against Iran, and by Ecuador's decision to recall its ambassador after Israel's attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla."

PERRspectives: U.S. Health Care Still Badly Lags Competitors

PERRspectives: U.S. Health Care Still Badly Lags Competitors: "Among the seven nations studied--Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States--the U.S. ranks last overall, as it did in the 2007, 2006, and 2004 editions of Mirror, Mirror. Most troubling, the U.S. fails to achieve better health outcomes than the other countries, and as shown in the earlier editions, the U.S. is last on dimensions of access, patient safety, coordination, efficiency, and equity. The Netherlands ranks first, followed closely by the U.K. and Australia. The 2010 edition includes data from the seven countries and incorporates patients' and physicians' survey results on care experiences and ratings on various dimensions of care."

The CIA/Likud Sinking of Jimmy Carter-Consortiumnews.com

Consortiumnews.com: "As the Official Story of the 1980 October Surprise case crumbles – with new revelations that key evidence was hidden from investigators of a congressional task force and that internal doubts were suppressed – history must finally confront the troubling impression that remains: that disgruntled elements of the CIA and Israel’s Likud hardliners teamed up to remove a U.S. president from office."

Hail to the whistleblowers | James Denselow | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk

Hail to the whistleblowers | James Denselow | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk: "James Madison (drafter of the US first amendment) once wrote that 'government, without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy; or perhaps both'.

This is certainly true of Afghanistan, where the US-led coalition has been able to avoid a true audit of the impact of its presence via tight control of the media combined with manipulated patriotism."

The Buffoonization Of Hugo Chavez By Sean Fenley

The Buffoonization Of Hugo Chavez By Sean Fenley: "It is said when you can’t beat ‘em, that you might as well make common cause with them, but in the case of President Hugo Chavez and the government of Venezuela this doesn’t seem to be the logical choice of the U.S. State Department, and the corporate ‘mainstream’ media at all. Since, the Obama State Department and its auxiliaries are incapable of debunking the unequivocal success of the Bolivarian revolution, and since the CIA’s forays into the Bolivarian Republic have been far from a success; the corporate MSM seems to be employing the strategy, that if you can’t beat ‘em, then you might as well throw a whole bunch of mud in their eye."

The Complicated Faces Of Anti-Semitism By Dr. Alan Sabrosky

The Complicated Faces Of Anti-Semitism By Dr. Alan Sabrosky: "I cannot speak for the situation elsewhere, but in the US, I doubt if there is another definable group that equals or surpasses Jews in their achievements in so many different fields, their support for civil liberties and civil rights, and their philanthropy or general support of charitable causes."

Bollyn - The Despised State Of Israel Can't Survive Long

Bollyn - The Despised State Of Israel Can't Survive Long: "No. I don't see how a small, artificial state run by terrorists and despised by its neighbors and most of the world can possibly survive in the long term. It simply is not sustainable. This is, after all, why 9-11 was carried out - to bring the U.S. military into the Middle East to protect the Zionist hegemony in the region. Public opinion, however, has turned strongly against Israel as a result of a long string of Zionist crimes and atrocities. A state that is so despised simply cannot survive for long."
