Fox finds “fun” facts with McCain. Amanpour seeks gold. Sharif Kouddous = Priceless

Someone explain to me how ABC’s Christiane Amanpour gets access to the Egyptian presidential Palace when other journalists are threatened with beheading, beaten, arrested and robbed of their equipment. Why did Mubarak talk with Amanpour while Egypt’s state television was claiming that foreign journalists  were instigating the protests? How does ABC get access to Mubarak in the midst of all this?

In extreme contrast to Amanpour, who cautiously retreated from the streets after a confrontation with a group of  pro-Mubarak men, Democracy Now!’s Sharif Kouddous takes viewers from the barricades, to the rooftops to the makeshift hospitals in Tahrir.  Amanpour gives us a glimpse of the golden furniture of the Palace while Kouddous brings us the voices of the people in the square.   

And Fox News Scores BIG with John McCain’s revealing “virus” comment. What other statement could possibly provide insight into what’s got the political wheels whirling at insane speeds behind the public masks of Obama, H. Clinton and every other American politician. Are there some things  happening that are not in their control, not part of their manipulative agendas?

If the governments of the world actually operated in the best interests of all people instead of engaging in dangerous games of elites pursuing power, domination and exploitation wouldn’t the world be a very different place?

Democracy Now! will offer two hours of coverage on Saturday with Sharif Kouddous at www.democracynow.org.  You can catch it online.

Now brace yourself for John McCain’s truth telling. Is this the voice of America?

 Dictators for everyone???? Poverty for the majority? War games for the military industrial complex for eternity? What is the current agenda of G 20 totalitarianism?

      Oh something NEW under the sun, Charles? A world yet to be imagined and created and manifested? Are we humans capable of creating something new and different than the status quo? I think so. What do you think?

    I get that feeling too.
    Our government is cutting back like crazy now and lively hoods are starting to get messed with.
    What does the future hold for all of us and who will survive on a global scale

      So much for government FOR the people, eh? Apparently human cannon fodder and cheap labor is all we ‘non-elites’ are good for. Hmm.

    Good questions you ask here, but I wonder if the people supposed to answer are willing to answer at all … If it wasn’t for all these games in the politics, the world sure would’ve been a better place, but what you, me, someone like us can do? Nothing! It’s the sad truth!

    Freedom, justice, honor and human dignity and fundamental human rights? How dare the Lilliputians ask for such unreasonable things. If a leader of this country is calling that a virus he has lost sight of the rhetoric that has been preached for 250 years.

      “Lilliputians”–ooo might be a better word than “serfs”?
      Yes, indeed, McCain’s language and thoughts are just a tad scary. Then again, we are the country with the MOST people in prison, our president claims the right to asassinate US citizens anywhere in the world if they’re considered “threats” –and we have waged TWO ILLEGAL “WARS”. So–perhaps McCain’s mentality ought to not surprise us that much.
      There is rhetoric and then there is behaviour. Hmm. Well, Meg–any further thoughts you care to share? You’re certainly welcome to “mountain lion” it here.

    McCain’s reputation took a big hit when he ran for President. Somehow he was a little more palatable when he was calling for campaign finance reform. I can’t believe he even picked Palin to be his running mate! It’s clear that the status quo has no shame and needs to resort to fear tactics to stay in power. You would think that having all the wealth would be enough.

    Yeah see I am pretty fed up with the status quo, what good is freedom when it seems our freedom only imagines the freedom to work our butts off, pay our taxes, and then die. Seriously, I know so many people who are taking prescription drugs, and some who are self medicating with other things because they literally cannot take it any more. Stressed to the limit and overwhelmed. People are so angry, road rage, “going postal” or I guess going “high school” or going “Virginia Tech”, its all about rage, and powerlessness. Don’t people realize that this is a symptom of our stress and maybe it might be time to stop putting profit and popularity and possessions over people. I doubt the people in power know or rven care. How many of the drudges are taking pay cuts, losing jobs and taking cuts to their health benefits while our leaders just go about business as usual. It is ridiculous that we sit back and let it happen, its like Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. Soma soma soma.

    Our culture will change or we will keep seeing these random acts of rage. We will continue to see the suicides, and maybe one day the American people will protest like the Egyptians. It isn’t right.

    Don’t even get me started on Hollywood, the Superbowl and Donald Trump, what they spend in one day at the Superbowl would keep teachers in my school for another decade. Its disgusting.
