As the Democratic presidential candidates held pre-primary rallies yesterday in Indiana and North Carolina, and presumptive Republican nominee John McCain spoke to the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, another major-party presidential candidate continued his own quest for nomination, headlining a “Freedom Rally” on a Fort Wayne, Ind., university campus.

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) told supporters in early March, through a Web video, that he knew he was no longer in the running for the presidency, and aides said his campaign would be “winding down.” But it turns out Paul never stopped running for president.

Last weekend we co-authored “MAYDAY ALERT! — Terror Drills Could Go Live!” In it we urged the American people to be aware of the dangers inherent in National Level Exercise 2-08. NLE 2-08 began May 1 and will continue until May 8. In it, Bush administration officials are simulating WMD attacks in the Pacific Northwest and a natural catastrophe in Washington, DC. NLE 2-08 will culminate with a rehearsal of martial law.

Extraordinary Times, Intentional Collapse, & Takedown of The USA by Richard C. Cook

Much has been written about whether a worldwide plan exists to control events and steer them in the direction profitable to an elite of the rich and powerful. Is this a “conspiracy theory”? While it is difficult to be specific about who exactly may be behind such a conspiracy, if it exists, it is at least clear that the privately- managed system of global financial capitalism gives ample opportunity for the world’s richest people to combine for their mutual benefit. Further, global financial capitalism itself is based on the monopolization of money-creation by a world banking system that is largely privately owned, even while working through the central banks of the largest and most prosperous nations.

After entering the House of Representatives in 1995, Georgia Republican Bob Barr acquired a reputation as one of the most conservative members of Congress. It was Barr who in 1996 wrote the Defense of Marriage Act, which said states didn’t have to recognize gay marriages performed in other states; it was Barr who protested when he learned the military allowed soldiers to practice Wicca. A former federal prosecutor, a firm social conservative, and a strong supporter of the War on Drugs, Barr doesn’t fit most people’s image of a civil libertarian.

Despite the propaganda coming out of Washington, DC., millions of Americans are in deep financial trouble. Last week the media cranked up the mantra that Wall Street may be getting more optimistic. Really?

1 – May 2, 2008. Linens ‘n Things files for bankruptcy protection – 120 stores to close
2 – April 30, 2008. Disappearing now: $6 trillion in housing wealth. “A Washington think tank is warning that housing prices are falling at an accelerating level, destroying wealth at a pace that will cost the average homeowner $85,000 in lost wealth this year alone.”
3 – April 29, 2008. Foreclosures Spike 112% – No End In Sight. “More than 155,000 families have lost their homes to foreclosure this year; one out of every 194 U.S. households received a foreclosure filing.” (This year? We’re only into the first week of May.)
4 – April 29, 2008. Americans sell personal stuff to make ends meet
5 – April 29, 2008. More Subprime, Alt-A Mortgages May Head `Underwater’

Is war with Iran inevitable, even imminent? Or is peace at hand?

From the public diplomacy of the administration, either conclusion may be reached. Consider.

“West Offers Iran ‘Refreshed’ Deal,” ran the headline in the May 3 Washington Times. The story described an offer to Iran, agreed to by all five members of the Security Council – the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China – of a sweetened grand bargain, if Tehran will suspend its enrichment of uranium.
