Conservative Threat Level Raised to Orange on UK Terror, Cheney's Fourth Branch

Despite polls numbers now reaching into the 20's for President Bush, the Conservative Threat Level has been raised to Orange/High (Church and State to Merge). Like a trapped rat, events this week showed the conservative movement remains rabid - and dangerous. The latest UK terror attacks in London and Glascow guarantee a new wave of […]

DOJ Wins Mississippi White Voter Suppression Case

In May 2006, Perrspectives detailed the one of the few efforts by the Bush Department of Justice to fight election bias. In a tragi-comic inversion of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the DOJ argued that the African-American Democratic Executive Committee chairman in Noxubee County Ike Brown led an effort to suppress the vote of […]

SiCKO Required Reading: U.S. Health Care by the Numbers

Michael Moore's controversial film SiCKO opens nationwide this weekend. Hailed by critics and widely praised across much of the political spectrum, Moore's look at the failing American health care system is already generating the predictable smear campaign from the insurance industry, the pharmaceutical lobby and their allies on the right.

Giuliani's Bad Week

The AP this morning served up a nice summary of what has been a very bad week for Rudy Giuliani. But the former New York mayor and 2008 GOP White House hopeful isn't the only conservative miscreant who's fallen on hard times of late.

Man on a Mission: Romney's Vietnam Deferment

As Perrspectives has detailed before, Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney seems pathologically incapable of keeping his stories straight. Whether the issue is abortion, stem cell research, rights for gay Americans or even his state of residence, Romney's rhetorical contortions have become legendary.

Google Gets Political

As the Washington Post reported this week, Internet giant Google has deployed a substantial lobbying team in the nation's capital. The company, whose corporate mantra is "Don't Be Evil," hopes to avoid Microsoft's anti-trust woes of the 1990's by getting its hands dirty in the gritty world of Washington politics.

Free Condoms and Herding Goats: The GOP on Mexican Immigration

Watching President Bush getting pilloried by grassroots conservatives and his Republican allies alike usually tops any progressive's list of life's simple pleasures. But as Trent Lott and Mark Kirk showed this week, seeing the Congressional GOP get its hate on when it comes to Bush's immigration initiatives has become a truly disturbing spectacle. Kirk, a […]

Ashcroft Contradicts Gonzales' Testimony on NSA Program

Last week, Perrspectives detailed Attorney General Alberto Gonzales lying under oath regarding the Bush administration's internal debate over the legality of its NSA domestic surveillance program. Now, former Attorney General John Ashcroft in closed door testimony before the House Intelligence Committee confirmed that Gonzales once again lied to Congress. House Intelligence Committee chairman Silvestre Reyes […]

Red States Opposing Employee Free Choice Act Need It Most

In Washington this week, the Senate will take up the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA). Passed by the House 241-185 in March, EFCA would make it much easier for unions to organize. Predictably, red state Republican Senators backed by an alliance of business groups led by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will likely prevent the […]
