Quebec's students provide a lesson in protest politics 07 Sep 2012 So this is how it's done. Students in Quebec, in rebellion against their government over tuition fees, have scored an amazing victory in the province's general elections...The Liberal government led by Jean Charest, which ran on a law-and-order platform against the students, has been defeated. Its plans to implement an 82% tuition fee increase are shredded for now, and the harsh emergency legislation it passed to quell the upsurge is history. Charest is resigning from politics. Two members of the leftist student group, Québec Solidaire, have been elected, and the party gained more than 6% of the popular vote.

"One is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage." [Of course there are! It's a Heritage-Foundation-hatched plan that Romney implemented first. It funnels billions into corporate coffers, just as the Heritage Foundation wanted!]

Did French Alps murder victim's secret work on space satellite contract make him prime assassination target? 08 Sep 2012 French detectives are to quiz work colleagues of murdered Briton Saad Al-Hilli, after they discovered he was killed while working on a secret contract for one of Europe's biggest defence companies. The inquiry's focus will switch to Surrey Satellites Technology Limited (SSTL) near Guildford this week when gendarmes will question the workforce about whether Mr Al-Hilli's job may have made him a target for assassination. As fears grew that Mr Al-Hilli and his family were the victims of contract killers, it emerged that: All four of the adults who died were shot twice in the head - the hallmark of professionals... The Mail on Sunday can reveal that Mr Al-Hilli was part of a team involved in an undisclosed project linked to European Aeronautic Defence and Space (EADS) - a pan-European defence giant which has contracts with Russia, China and the Foreign Office.

Canada closes embassy in Iran, to expel Iranian diplomats

September 8, 2012 by legitgov

Canada closes embassy in Iran, to expel Iranian diplomats 07 Sep 2012 Canada has closed its embassy in Iran and will expel all Iranian diplomats in Canada within five days, Foreign Minister John Baird said on Friday, denouncing Tehran as the biggest threat to global security [when, in reality, that would be the US and its Coalition of the Bribed].

Obama's acceptance speech: A compendium of half-truths and lies

September 8, 2012 by walden9

Obama's acceptance speech: A compendium of half-truths and lies 08 Sep 2012 Barack Obama's speech Thursday night accepting the Democratic Party's nomination for reelection provided a fittingly cynical and demagogic conclusion to two weeks of media-scripted conventions staged by the two official parties. The speech was at once hollow and dishonest. This was in keeping not only with the debased and anti-democratic character of US politics as a whole, but also with the particular role assigned by the ruling class to the Democratic Party. Its job is to create the illusion that it represents a more progressive and "pro-people" alternative to the unvarnished reaction espoused by the Republicans, thereby maintaining the political monopoly of the corporate-financial elite.

Judge to allow Arizona to enforce key part of anti-illegal immigration law 05 Sep 2012 A federal judge in Arizona has rejected a last-ditch effort by civil liberties and immigrants' rights groups to block enforcement of a hotly-contested provision of Arizona's anti-illegal immigration law, S.B. 1070.
