  • It's about blackmail, not national securityAlfred McCoy, Tom Dispatch
    January 29, 2014

    For more than six months, Edward Snowden's revelations about the National Security Agency (NSA) have been pouring out from the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Guardian, Germany's Der Spiegel, and Brazil's O Globo, among other places. Yet no one has pointed out the combination of factors that made the NSA's expanding programs to monitor the world seem like such a slam-dunk development in Washington. The answer is remarkably simple. For an imperial power losing its economic grip on the planet and heading into more austere times, the NSA's latest technological breakthroughs look like a bargain basement deal when it comes to projecting power and keeping subordinate allies in line -- like, in fact, the steal of the century. Even when disaster turned out to be attached to them, the NSA's surveillance programs have come with such a discounted price tag that no Washington elite was going to reject them.

  • Alternatives to Post Office cutReuel S. Amdur
    January 29, 2014

    Be careful what you wish for. The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) urged Canada to turn the Post Office into a crown corporation, at arm's length from the government. Well, a crown corporation is what they and all of us got, beginning in 1981. Big mistake.

  • Stephen Harper comes cleanScott Stockdale
    January 17, 2014

    The veneer of respectability has been lifted from the image of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper in the minds of the Canadian people and the entire world, as a result of the ongoing Senate scandal, which Mr. Harper's own office has characterized as "a gathering mess".

  • Israel-Palestine: Is Peace possible on Obama's watch? Alan Hart
    January 17, 2014

    The answer to my headline question could be, not necessarily would be, "Yes" IF President Obama was prepared to put America's own best interests first and use as necessary all the leverage he has to oblige Israel to accept that peace with the Palestinians requires a complete end to its occupation of the West Bank. With East Jerusalem the capital of a Palestinian state or, preferably, Jerusalem an undivided, open city and the capital of two states, Israel back to its 1967 pre-war frontiers subject only to minor and mutually agreed border modifications is an Israel the Palestinians could and would make peace with. But...

  • Did Stephen Harper's lawyer break the lawThe Canadian Charger
    January 16, 2014

    I'm starting to detect a subliminal - or not so subliminal - theme that permeates recent Canadian Charger articles about the Canadian Senate scandal: This scandal is really a good thing because it is giving the world a chance to see for itself how democracy in Canada - the soft face of the American militaristic, imperialistic regime - really works.

    On November 5, 2011, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) imposed a two year moratorium on new applications to sponsor parents or grandparents. A new option was provided where parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents could apply for the Parent and Grandparent Super Visa in order to visit Canada. This procedure would allow parents and grandparents to visit Canada for up to two years and the visa would be valid for ten years.[1]

  • Independent inquiry neededScott Stockdale
    January 16, 2014

    Canadians deserve to know the truth about the ongoing senate scandal and an independent enquiry may be the only way they will ever have of finding this ever-elusive truth.
