How Navy Secretary Lehman’s Maritime Strategy Almost Sank Us

The disappearance of President Reagan's Navy Secretary John F. Lehman, Jr. from the American political scene after he apparently resigned on February 16, 1987, was the greatest mystery until recently.

The Contaminating Effects of Reaganite Conservatism as Imported into Canada from...

The conservative revolution initiated when Ronald Reagan became the US president in 1981 is going off the rails. Reagan’s mantra of business deregulation set loose such kleptocratic excesses among Wall Street insiders that, almost three decades after the Hollywood president’s inauguration, taxpayers woke up to find Big Brother had put knives to our throats. We were informed that the global economy would collapse unless we handed over trillions of dollars of our own and our descendant’s future earnings in order to finance the transfer of trillions of dollars to the very white-collar criminals that caused the economic debacle in the first place.

A Message to the Black Community

The hip hop community takes great pride in "keeping it real." But are they really keeping it real, or are they simply struttin' around saying, "look at me," while the corporate elite have them unknowingly doing an updated version of Steppin' Fechit - right down to the ape-like body language?

GORDON DUFF: WHY AMERICA MUST HAVE AN ANTI-WAR UPRISING

I am not against war. I am a combat Vietnam Veteran. I know war. Lives were stolen in Vietnam and we are doing again every day, maybe not in same numbers but the lessons of Vietnam have more than been forgotten. The brightest time in American history, another "greatest generation" may well have been the one that stopped an evil and corrupt war. That generation saw the cost. Only the young, the young and the parents of those the war destroyed knew Vietnam. America simply turned away, a nation of, do we call them, do we call us, cowards? Is there another term?

The “Me-First” Attitude of American Politicians is Trashing the U.S. Constitution

What has been proven, however, is that even though the Iranians were considered an enemy of the United States and had held sixty-six Americans hostage for 444 days, Reagan entered into a secret agreement with the Iranians to have Israel ship them military arms, then resupply Israel in return for payment under the table (treason). Reagan needed the money to fund the Contras in a war in Nicaragua in which congress outlawed funding under the Boland Amendment. Reagan also drummed up funding for the Contras by flooding the nation's inner cities with illegal drugs - an act of treachery that thirty years later, the nation is still feeling the negative effects.

30 Years of US Mistakes in Afghanistan

More than three decades ago, there were social movements in Afghanistan to improve the standard of living of its people and to provide greater equality for women. There was even a functioning, if imperfect, democracy. But the U.S. government – using subversion, weapons and money – contributed to the halt in progress in these areas of human welfare. Indeed, many gains that had been made were reversed.

The appeal of unreality

When Al Franken ran for the Senate, people questioned his credentials, but good grief, people, comedy is hard work compared to harrumphing. It takes brains and elegance and courage to make people laugh. A comedian who joins the Senate has taken a step down on the social scale and everybody knows it.

Palin, Psy-Ops & “Condescending” Libs

A key strategy of the Right has been to convince as many Americans as possible that the U.S. news media has a “liberal bias,” a canard that has stuck even though newspapers have been traditionally pro-Republican and most media outlets are owned by giant corporations reflecting the interests of wealthy individuals.
