Monument to the Victims of Communism in Ottawa - Canada
Communist Sign the petition to support the building of a Monument to the Victims of Communism, in Ottawa, Canada

To: Parliament of Canada
While the horrors of Nazism are well known, who knows that the Soviet Union murdered 20 million people? Who knows that China's dictators have slaughtered an estimated 60 million? Who knows that the Communist holocaust has exacted a death toll surpassing that of all of the wars of the 20th century combined ? Just as we must grasp Communism's brutality, we must understand the true cause of this era's most significant event: the fall of the Soviet Union. While we believe that Vaclav Havel was right when he saw the fall of the Communist empire as an event on the same scale as the fall of the Roman Empire, it was not the end of Communism.

Boycott of Greek products in Albania
Boycott of Greek products in Albania!

Albanian nationalists, who accuse Greece of turning the country into a non-conventional colony of Greece, are using the protest to halt the rising power of Greece in the country. In 2006 Greek Imports reached EUR 406mn, while Greek investments are estimated at over EUR 400mn. Greek companies and businesses own substantial shares in the telecommunication, petroleum and financial markets in the country. Strong protests were organized by the "Cham" population, ethnic Albanians that used to live in the territory of current Greece till the end of World War II. Afterwards, they forcedly expelled from their properties. Therefore we call on you to Boycott greek products in Albania

Edwards Admits to Extramarital Affair

    Read inside:
  • Tail between his legs

  • John Edwards, the former senator from North Carolina and presidential candidate, admitted
    John Edwards and Bob Woodruff
    publicly Friday to an extramarital affair, but said he did not father a child out of wedlock.

    “In 2006, I made a serious error in judgment and conducted myself in a way that was disloyal to my family and to my core beliefs,” Mr. Edwards said in a statement.

    By Katharine Q. Seelye and Kate Phillips to New York Times

    “I was and am ashamed of my conduct and choices, and I had hoped that it would never become public.”

    ABC News first reported this afternoon that in an interview for broadcast tonight on Nightline, Mr. Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff he “repeatedly lied during his presidential campaign about an extramarital affair with a novice film-maker.” He said he did have an affair with the woman, Rielle Hunter, but did not father her child, as has been reported by the National Enquirer.

Spitzer resigns in disgrace over scandal

    NEW YORK - In a startlingly swift fall from grace,
    Eliot and Silda Spitzer
    Gov. Eliot Spitzer resigned Wednesday after getting caught in a call-girl scandal that made a mockery of his straight-arrow image and left him facing the prospect of criminal charges and perhaps disbarment.

    "I cannot allow my private failings to disrupt the people's work," Spitzer said, his weary-looking wife, Silda, standing at his side, again, as the corruption-fighting politician once known as Mr. Clean answered for his actions for the second time in three days.

Clinton Says She Can Beat McCain

    ORONO, Maine (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton warned Saturday that Democrats will have a hard
    Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton
    time running against the "legendary background" of Republican John McCain, and that she is better positioned than Barack Obama to beat the likely GOP nominee.

    Campaigning in Maine, which holds nominating caucuses Sunday, Clinton called the Arizona senator a friend but said a McCain presidency would be tantamount to a third Bush administration.

    He'd also be a formidable political adversary, she said.

    "If our nominee is running against someone with the legendary background of John McCain — Democrats need to think about this," Clinton said. "Because we're picking a nominee we expect to win. We cannot take four more years of more of the same."

John McCain - the next president of USA

    John Sidney McCain III (born August 29, 1936) is the senior United States Senator from Arizona, and
    Senator John McCain
    a candidate for the Republican Party nomination in the 2008 presidential election.

    Both McCain's grandfather and father were Admirals in the United States Navy. McCain attended the United States Naval Academy and graduated in 1958. He became a naval aviator, flying attack aircraft from carriers. During the Vietnam War in 1967, he narrowly escaped death in the Forrestal fire. On his twenty-third bombing mission over North Vietnam later in 1967, he was shot down and badly injured. He then endured five and a half years as a prisoner of war, including periods of torture, before he was released following the Paris Peace Accords in 1973.

    Retiring from the Navy in 1981 and moving to Arizona, McCain entered politics. In 1982 he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Arizona's 1st congressional district. After serving two terms there, he was elected to the U.S. Senate from Arizona in 1986. He was re-elected Senator in 1992, 1998, and 2004. While generally adhering to American conservatism,

John Belushi: the 25-years-gone blues

I Am Albanian
    LOS ANGELES -- When a force of nature like John Belushi is lost, 25 years isn't time enough to ease
    the grief or erase the laughter.

    Actor-comedian Richard Belzer still dreams about him from time to time, the unselfish friend


    and "impish genius" who devoured life. John Landis, who directed Belushi in "Animal House" and "The Blues Brothers," is still angry at him for dying foolishly and young.

    "Saturday Night Live" creator Lorne Michaels feels an obligation to "restate the obvious," that Belushi was profoundly talented and part of the show's creative DNA.

    By most measures, the round comic with the sharp edges left a small body of work when a drug overdose killed him at age 33 in March 1982. But his TV, movie and music performances proved influential, hitting the baby-boomer sweet spot and surviving despite pop culture's truncated attention span.

Ford remembered as steady, selfless

    Associated Press(AP)

    RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. - President Bush hailed Gerald R. Ford for his administration's honor. His former opponent, President Carter, called him "a man of highest integrity." A daughter of
    Former US President Gerald Ford
    Richard Nixon, the man Ford replaced in the White House and pardoned, described him as "an honorable and dedicated public servant.


    Nancy Reagan hailed Ford dedication to the country.

    In the uncertain days after the Watergate scandal, those qualities were enough.

    "With his quiet integrity, common sense and kind instincts, President Ford helped heal our land and restore public confidence in the presidency," President Bush said in a statement from his Texas ranch Wednesday. "The American people will always admire Gerald Ford's devotion to duty, his personal character and the honorable conduct of his administration."

    Ford, who died Tuesday at 93, was remembered for getting and keeping the country on course in shaky times.

Sen. Johnson 'recovering' after surgery

    Associated Press(AP)


    WASHINGTON - Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson (news, bio, voting record) remained in critical condition but was described as recovering and
    Sen.Tim Johnson
    holding his wife's hand Thursday after emergency overnight surgery to repair bleeding inside his brain.

    His sudden illness had raised questions over whether the Democrats would hold their newly won slim control of the Senate.

    The South Dakota lawmaker, 59, was on "an uncomplicated postoperative course," the U.S. Capitol physician said after visiting him Thursday afternoon. Johnson suffered a hemorrhage in his brain caused by a rare and sometimes fatal condition.

    "He has been appropriately responsive to both word and touch. No further surgical intervention has been required," said the physician, Adm. John Eisold. He had said earlier, "The senator is recovering without complication."

    Johnson was responding to the voice of his wife, Barbara, and following directions after the surgery, the senator's office said in a statement. "He was reaching for and holding her hand."

    Johnson was stricken as Democrats prepared to take fragile 51-49 control of the new Senate when it convenes in three weeks. Democrats seized control of both chambers of Congress from Republicans in November midterm elections.

Democratic priorities in Congress

    By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER, Associated Press Writer

    WASHINGTON - The first female speaker of the House will lead a chamber filled with more women than ever before.

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif. meets reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington
    Congress as a whole, however, still will be dominated by white men.

    The House will add at least three women and the Senate will add two, bringing the total number of female members of Congress to at least 86 — 70 in the House, 16 in the Senate.

    Women were candidates in two House races that were too close to call Wednesday.

    "It's still very hard for women to succeed and to actually get to the House of Representatives," said Rep. Hilda Solis (news, bio, voting record), a California Democrat and co-chair of the Women's Caucus. "But that number just keeps going up every time we have elections."

    Rep. Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record), D-Calif., is expected to become the first female speaker of the House, with Democrats taking control of the 435-member chamber. She was helped by the election of at least seven new female Democrats.
