Government.AUDIO: Clark, Peters & Dunne Winners In Labour-Led Govt Deal [1] - Prime Minister Helen Clark has announced that New Zealand First leader Winston Peters and United Future leader Peter Dunne have been allocated ministerial positions in a Labour-led Government. Labour has successfully negotiated a Centre-Right deal that offers immediate assurance that it can govern with New Zealand First and the United Party having signed confidence and supply agreements. The Progressive Party will be inside a coalition with Labour, and the Green Party has committed to support the government during confidence and supply votes but misses out on having a role inside the executive.

    Ivan Eland On Iraq After The Referendum

    - The incompetence of the U.S. government’s policy in Iraq was demonstrated by this weekend’s referendum on the Iraqi Constitution. The Constitution, written by the Shi’a and Kurds, has passed, over the objections of many Sunnis. Yet it symbolizes one of the U.S. government’s biggest errors in Iraq: confusing democracy with liberty. See... The Iraq Constitution: And They Call This Victory? [1] MORE:

    Russell Brown & More From Public Address

    - There are some angry Greens over on Frogblog. In the heat of the moment, some of them seem inclined to turn on their leaders and go hostile on the Left: to do an Alliance, in other words. I don't think that would be too smart. On the face of it - and according to all the news reports - the Greens don't get a lot in hard terms. But they didn't ask for a lot. They made a virtue of going into negotiation without an array of bottom lines, and the agreement they now have, for no promise of support on confidence and supply (just a promise not to vote against the government), is the same one they had already negotiated in return for their active support of a Labour-led government. See... Public Address 18/10/05 - Anger Management [1]

    William Rivers Pitt Gets To The Nub Of PlameGate

    - In a New York Times article published on Sunday, columnist Frank Rich buried the dart right in the center-black. "What matters most in this case," wrote Rich, "is not whether Mr. Rove and Lewis Libby engaged in a petty conspiracy to seek revenge on a whistle-blower, Joseph Wilson, by unmasking his wife, Valerie, a covert C.I.A. officer. What makes Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation compelling, whatever its outcome, is its illumination of a conspiracy that was not at all petty: the one that took us on false premises into a reckless and wasteful war in Iraq. That conspiracy was instigated by Mr. Rove's boss, George W. Bush, and Mr. Libby's boss, Dick Cheney."See... William Rivers Pitt: The Heart of the Matter [1]

How do we remain faithful to the meaning of texts as we apply them to contemporary events, and how do we recognize when we are manipulating scriptural sources to promote a political agenda?”See...
