The psychiatrist at George Washington University in Washington DC said: "Behind Bush's affable exterior operates a powerful but obscure delusional system that drives his behaviour." He blames his mental state on his untreated alcoholism as a youth, his fundamentalist religious beliefs and his love-hate relationship with his former president dad George Bush senior.
El comisario Maigret responde a la denuncia de Charo, la pareja prostituta del detective Carvalho, al objeto de mostrar que la intervención de la última en la lista de debate que denuncia la conspiración de los medios franceses de comunicación para trastocar los conceptos de Estado Nación y de ciudadanía abre una alternativa fundamental en la lucha de los efectos de aquella en la exclusión de los otros y de nosotros mismos, que nos impone, a juicio del comisario , la actualidad francesa de los últimos días.
In lieu of the controversy surrounding a Black stripper, who was allegedly raped by three members of the Duke University lacrosse team, we once again find ourselves debating the myth of the Black woman's sexuality. And what exactly are those myths
The canadian Police are violently attacking Indigeonous peoples in thier country and on their own land!
To mark this year's Earth Day celebrations, Greenpeace, Sagip Pasig Movement (SPM) and the party-list group Akbayan today presented the first Lapastangan at Gahasa sa Kalikasan (LAGPAK) Awards to top government and corporate abusers of the environment. This year's batch of "awardees" include the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), the National Power Corporation (NAPOCOR), power company Mirant, biotech corporation Monsanto and Rapu-rapu mining company La Fayette, all cited for the leading roles they continue to play in the destruction of the environment.

The defection of large numbers of people from federal citizenship, and the establishment of free cities that will run on free energy, can and will break the hold of old ideas and false scientific notions that held us back during the entire 20th century. That 2nd Dark Age is now behind us and the way to a better, Level 4 Civilization, is open. How soon the transformation is accomplished is now in the hands of ordinary folk, it has very little to do with our federal 'representatives', the industrial councils of big business, the parrot press, or the dogma specialists of orthodox science.

Mesia manipulation and misinformation has become the trade mark of the Ethiopian regime.
Our next generation of children is in grave danger. TeenScreen is working insidiously in schools to find children who can become the psychiatric/pharmaceutical industry's next cash cow. This may be good for the drug business but is very bad for our children and, factually, for the future of this entire society.

Univision, su ambicion y falta de apoyo a los latinos
You would think from the apparently conflicting news reports that there is a deep division in the Blair cabinet as there appears to be in Washington about whether or not to conduct a military strike against Iran.
On April 10, 2006, TWU Local 100 President Roger Toussaint was sentenced to ten days in jail for the December 2005 NYC Transit Strike. But defending the rights of workers to retire in dignity is not a crime. Defending decency and respect on the job is not a crime. And taking a stand for what is right is not a crime. As President Toussaint stated at his sentencing, “we were engaged in civil disobedience”. We had no other choice.
They have called it the "Balkans syndrome", and it has always been suspected that the fatal illnesses may be connected to the notorious "depleted uranium" [preceding words in English], depleted uranium [in vernacular]. In reality, it has never been possible to attribute complete responsibility with scientific certainty to that metal, which was contained in the projectiles fired by the fighter planes during the Kosovo war. As the Pentagon has admitted, a good 11,000 of them were launched. They were fired at armoured vehicles to penetrate them, thanks to the enormous impact force of the depleted uranium.
"This year, that number is likely to grow. Latin America is in the middle of an election cycle that has already seen Evo Morales win in Bolivia and Michelle Bachelet, a single mother and socialist, win a third term for Chile's center-left Concertación Coalition. On April 9 in Peru, Ollanta Humala, a nationalist former military officer backed by Chávez and Morales, came from behind to force a runoff. In the months ahead, Colombia, Mexico, Brazil, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Venezuela will hold presidential elections. And with center-leftist Manuel López Obrador ahead in Mexico, the Sandinistas poised to make a comeback in Nicaragua and Chávez's re-election all but certain, the Bush Administration is nervous. It has responded by trying to drive a wedge between what Rice describes as the "false populism" that is spreading throughout the Andes and the pragmatic reformism of Chile, Uruguay and Brazil--in other words, between the "statesmen" and the "madmen," as Chávez recently put it."
After more than 10,000 anti-war protestors marched on Lake Shore Drive, police detained and arrested hundreds of people. A lawsuit brought on behalf of over 800 demonstrators who were unlawfully held that night has recently been granted class action status.

It's that time of year again when Australia comes as close to getting religion as collectively possible. With Jesus dead, buried and resurrected, the collective Ozzie mind turns from chocolate eggs to ANZACs. Our current leadership sees itself as a military one. The problem for Howard and most of the current crop of leaders and 'wanna be' leaders, is that the wars they want to fight are either unnecessary or unjust. As we wait and see what is transpiring in the Solomon Islands, we find more men and women being sent to fight another battle in "our name".

Des journalistes chiliens viennent d’être condamnés par manque d’éthique par le Collège de Journalistes du Chili, pour fausses informations et participation à la justification de disparitions de personnes sous le régime de Pinochet. Grâce à des commissions d’enquête et des déclassifications de documents, on sait aujourd’hui que les journaux chiliens étaient financés par la CIA. Le financement de journalistes étrangers par les USA est aujourd’hui assuré par la National Endowment for Democracy (NED) dont Reporters sans Frontières (RSF) est un des bénéficiaires. Des questions au sujet de ces événements et la nature de ces financements sont ici posées à Robert Ménard, Président de cette association
Racist ethnic Ashkenazi Americans use anti-Genocide activies to deflect criticism of Israel. The definining genocide of the 20th century is not the Jewish Holocaust but the Palestinian Nakba. Neither the Holocaust of Zionist mythography nor the revisionist depiction of the mass murders of Jews during WW2 corresponds to the facts.
AN ANALYSIS OF RHETORIC IN MEDIA ON ITS WAY TO WAR AGAINST IRAN - COMMENTING ON THE ALLEGED STATEMENTS OF IRAN'S PRESIDENT AHMADINEJAD
White House shake-up.
La classe moyenne, enfant de la croissance économique et mère de la consommation de masse, se sent lentement mourir. Avec elle vacillent les fondements de notre société. La classe moyenne se sent attaquée de toutes parts. Les politiques en font le cœur de leurs discours. Mais, bien souvent, la réalité est tout autre. L’écart qui existe entre discours et réalité est immense.

US PLANS NOW UNDER WAY TO OUST VENEZUELAN PRESIDENT HUGO CHAVEZ
Riots broke out in the Solomon Islands after Snyder Rini was declared prime minister. However, there are claims that votes were bought by Mr Rini's financial backers. "Not only promises but gifts of money. So how can you fight that?" said Francis Billy Hilly, a spokesperson for the opposition. It has been reported that an angry crowd threw stones at the Parliament building, resulting in tear gas being fired by the police. Cars and buildings were set alight in Honiara and several Australian and New Zealand police officers were injured.
As with Australia, one of the chief purposes of New Zealand’s support for the “war on terror” was to get the support of the US in particular for the predatory activities of NZ imperialism in the Pacific. Clark and Peters now appear to have won explicit approval from both the US and Britain for the country’s expanding role as a regional policeman. At the end of British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s trip to Auckland last month, he and Clark issued a joint statement declaring that New Zealand would increasingly become “the ears and eyes for Britain” in the Pacific as Britain’s presence waned and China’s increased.
