Bush Blames the Troops

Robert Scheer writes: "Blame it on the military, but make it look like you're supporting the troops. That's been the convenient gambit of failed emperors throughout history as they witnessed their empires decline. Not surprisingly then, it's become the standard rhetorical trick employed by President Bush in shirking responsibility for the Iraq debacle of his making."

Climate Change and the Courts

In the first high court decision on global warming, the Supreme Court has ruled that it is the job of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate greenhouse gases emitted from cars. This landmark ruling in the case of Massachusetts v. EPA has set a new precedent that will allow a plethora of global warming litigation cases to move forward. This decision will directly influence a current court case in which automakers are trying to block a California law that requires new cars and trucks to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 22 percent by 2012 and 30 percent by 2016. This law has been adopted by ten other states, and if successfully implemented, would drastically transform the environmental standards of the auto industry. These court cases are an example of how litigation that attempts to force governments and corporations to act to combat global warming is gaining momentum.

UN: Baghdad "Surge" Has Failed

Sectarian violence continues to claim the lives of a large number of Iraqi civilians in Sunni Arab and Shi'ite neighborhoods of Iraq's capital, despite the coalition's new Baghdad security plan, the UN said today. The United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) also said that for the first time since it began issuing quarterly reports on the human rights situation in Iraq, the latest report (1/1-3/31) did not contain overall mortality figures from Iraq's Ministry of Health because it refused to release them.

Gonzales Aide Monica Goodling Gets Immunity

A House committee voted Wednesday to grant immunity to Monica Goodling, a key aide to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales during the firings of eight US attorneys. She had refused to testify, invoking her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. The 32-6 vote by the House Judiciary Committee surpassed the two-thirds majority required to grant a witness immunity from prosecution. A separate vote to authorize a subpoena for Goodling passed by voice vote.

Bundesregierung gibt heimliche Online-Durchsuchungen zu

Bundesverfassungsschutz und Bundesnachrichtendienst praktizieren offenbar bereits seit zwei Jahren geheime Online-Durchsuchungen. Das gab das Kanzleramt am Mittwoch nach Aussagen von Teilnehmern im Innenausschuss des Bundestags zu. Vertreter der Opposition reagierten mit Empörung und warfen der Bundesregierung Rechtsbruch vor. Unions-Politiker sprachen dagegen von der Notwendigkeit der Ermittlungsmaßnahmen. Nach dem Bericht des Kanzleramts spähen die Geheimdienste seit Juni 2005 verdächtige Computer aus. Sie stützen sich dabei auf eine Dienstvorschrift des damaligen Bundesinnenministers Otto Schily (SPD). Der Bundesgerichtshof hatte heimliche Online-Durchsuchungen durch Ermittlungsbehörden im Februar für unzulässig erklärt, weil es an einer Rechtsgrundlage fehle. Der CSU-Politiker Hans-Peter Uhl forderte, gegebenenfalls das Grundgesetz zu ändern.

#Die Linkspartei.PDS: Pressemitteilungen

26. April 2007

Skandal ersten Ranges

Zu der jetzt bekannt gewordenen Tatsache, dass Geheimdienste bereits seit zwei Jahren Online-Durchsuchungen durchführen erklärt die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Katina Schubert:

Die Geheimdienste haben Tatsachen geschaffen, während die Politik noch über die Rechtsgrundlage von Online-Durchsuchungen debattiert. Entweder hat Innenminister Schäuble seinen Geheimdienst nicht in Griff oder er duldet solche offensichtlichen Rechtsverletzungen. Beides wäre ein Skandal. Die illegale Praxis der Online-Durchsuchungen muss sofort beendet und die widerrechtlich erfassten Daten vernichtet werden. Der jetzt bekannt gewordene Fakt macht deutlich: Der Kampf gegen den Terror wird missbraucht für eine allumfassenden Überwachung der Bürgerinnen und Bürger. Vorbei sind die Zeiten, in denen sich Polizei und Geheimdienste erst mühsam den Zugriff auf persönliche Daten erstreiten mussten. Jeder und jede stehen unter Generalverdacht, niemand kann mehr nachvollziehen, von wem und warum persönliche Daten gespeichert oder weitergegeben werden. Die Linkspartei.PDS bleibt bei ihrer Forderung: Der Schutz von Bürgerrechten muss Priorität haben. Die Trennung von polizeilicher und geheimdienstlicher Arbeit darf nicht beseitigt werden. Die Geheimdienste müssen stärker kontrolliert werden und alle Bürgerinnen und Bürger das Recht haben, über persönliche Daten zu bestimmen.

Phone mast plans thrown out

By Deborah Linton

PLANS to install two mobile phone masts have been thrown-out by planners.

Service provider, T-Mobile, applied to Bolton Council to erect a 12.3 metre-high mast on land in Market Street, Little Lever. The firm also sought permission to install a 12 metre mast on a grass verge opposite McDonalds, in Chorley Old Road, Bolton.

But Bolton Council's planning and highways committee refused the proposals last week. Councillors said the first set of plans were out-of-keeping with the area.

Cllr Mary Woodward said: "The main issue is where this thing is going, in a very busy area, behind a bus shelter. There are at least three other telephone masts in Little Lever. The mast is designed to look like a lamp post but then again how many lamp posts do we need?"

Opposing the plans, one resident said: "This is a major footfall in Little Lever. It's the wrong place."

Cllr Roger Hayes suggested that T-Mobile look into scrapping the Chorley Old Road plans and sharing a 45 ft mast that is to be installed by O2, at the junction of Moss Bank Way and Captain's Clough Road, in Smithills.

Cllr Barbara Ronson said: "I'm worried about the visual amenity on that grass verge. It would be quite striking as it comes into view."

Defending the plans, Martin Dale, on behalf of T-Mobile, had told the committee: "This is visually acceptable within the street-scene. We are creating a replica telegraph pole. Refusal cannot be justified on the basis of concerns about health."

Honeybeeworld ...EMF exposures?

http://www.buergerwelle.de/pdf/honeybeeworld_emf_exposures.htm

I believe this study (Lubeck 2005) re oscillating current during sleep improving memory will help support EMF/EMR concerns regarding "disappearing bees."

The study is very long, so I have copied only small portions below. Access info: http://www.natureprotocols.com/2006/11/09/oscillating_current_stimulatio.php

There are 31 references/studies re various relevant subjects (re humans).

I am not familiar with the Helsinki Declaration but can't help wonder how much of what was done regarding "human studies" -- "EMF RAPID Studies" -- that may be in violation of the Declaration!!! It makes me sick to my stomach when I recall the "intimidating individual" that came around with her black briefcase, making it clear to us that we needed to participate in her very involved series of questions (during time of EMF RAPID Studies).

This "unpleasant encounter" (think she came back more than once) never involved sharing any information to the effect there was any reason whatsoever to consider possible adverse health effects regarding our house being only 50 ft. from two high voltage lines. I do remember reporting a long list of symptoms (this occurred before I had any knowledge of benefits re taking vitamins and supplements and especially "melatonin) and I do know there is specific reference to homes within 50 ft. of high voltage lines in the EMF RAPID Conclusions.

I do not recall any questions being asked about any sort of electrical or telephone equipment being close to our beds. The fact that the American Cancer Society sent the "USA Today article" (1993) recommending appliances be moved away from beds, indicates the whole EMF RAPID Study may have "completely missed-the-boat" and that the omission of such relevant questions may have been intentional.

Had these issues been properly addressed and the public "informed," perhaps even the bees would still be able to find their way home? Take care - Joanne

Climate: Time Is Short

Ted Glick writes: "Despite the tremendous upsurge in consciousness about - and activism on - the climate crisis over the past year and a half in the USA, those greenhouse gas emissions just keep going up.... Each year that passes without action to seriously reduce carbon emissions is one more year that we are rolling the dice for ourselves, our children, and future generations. We need to do more.... I'm prepared for a long fast. I'm ready to get arrested again. Is there anyone else who feels the same?"

Republicans and Democrats alike need to feel the heat of an aroused citizenry demanding immediate action to dramatically reduce emissions, enact a moratorium on any new coal plants and provide serious money, such as $25 billion annually, for energy conservation, efficiencies, and clean and safe renewables."

Phone mast will stay after ‘Pull it down’ move fails

By Paul Keaveny

A GOVERNMENT planning inspector has quashed a move by Bolton Council to force a telecommunications giant to remove a 47ft mobile phone mast.

T-Mobile erected the mast on the footpath next to the Shell petrol station and in front of Tonge Cricket Club, in Crompton Way, last year.

The mast is designed to provide coverage to Crompton, Bradshaw, Hall i'th' Wood and areas around Tonge Moor.

A mix-up led to T-Mobile believing it had been granted permission to install the equipment so it erected the mast.

The council refused to give retrospective permission and ordered the company to pull down the mast as well as remove three equipment cabinets, claiming they were a potential hazard.

T-Mobile appealed against the decision and a hearing was held in front of government inspector Paul Taylor. In his formal ruling, Mr Taylor quashed the council's enforcement notice.

A council spokesman said: "It was unfortunate that the inspector did not agree with the council's evidence on this matter. We were of the view that the mobile phone mast blocked the pavement on Crompton Way in a fashion that might have affected users of the footway and highway.

"The council will continue to deal with the many applications from mobile phone operators in a way that best protects the communities of Bolton."

Cllr Nick Peel, chairman of the planning and highways committee at Bolton Council said: "We try to encourage the companies to erect masts to the minimum height and where possible to mast-share."

Graeme Mitchell, Bolton's group planning officer, said: "The mast obstructs the view of people crossing the road at that point, and vehicles would not get a good view of them."

The council argued the equipment narrowed the path and prevented pedestrians passing each other safely.

James Bevis, who represents T-Mobile, said: "Pedestrians would stand close to the kerb and the mast would not obstruct the view."

Killing dolphins and killing people

The Free Liberal
by Fred E. Foldvary

04/24/07

I was going to write about the killing of dolphins in Japan. Porpoises and dolphins are aquatic mammals of the suborder Odontoceti. (There are also fish called dolphins, which are entirely different animals.) Mammalian dolphins belong to the family Delphinidae, and porpoises belong to the family Phocoenidae. Both are highly intelligent social mammals. They like human beings and seldom harm people who swim with them. I was going to deplore the slaughter of dolphins in Japan. Fishermen in Japan are killing dolphins and small whales. These intelligent social beings hear the screaming of other dolphins as they get butchered in shallow coves. One wonders how the Japanese people could be so cruel as to allow this atrocity. It is done with the approval of the Japanese government. … That’s what I was going to write about, and then came the massacre at Virginia Tech...

Senatorial wisdom on Gonzales

The American Spectator

Lance the boil, Mr. President. So says, in effect, a knowledgeable U.S. senator who is usually friendly to the Bush administration. The boil is at the U.S. Department of Justice. The department has become painfully dysfunctional. One of the hardest things for a good leader to do is to relieve from a position of power somebody who is not only a decent person but a personal friend, somebody who has done nothing unethical, but who just isn’t up to the task. Unfortunately, that is what needs to be done in the case of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales...

Neither conservative nor progressive

LewRockwell.Com
by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

04/25/07

I once heard a leading Republican intellectual, a respected figure with lots of books on everyone’s shelves, express profound regret when the Soviet Union was falling apart. The problem, from this person’s perspective, is that this led to disorder, and order — meaning control even by the Soviet state — is the fundamental conservative value. That about sums it up. Even Communism is to be tolerated so long as it keeps away what they dread more than death: people within their rights doing whatever they want. At the end of the Cold War, many conservatives panicked that there would be no more great causes into which the state could enlist itself. There were about 10 years of books that sought to demonize someone, somewhere, in the hope of creating a new enemy. Maybe it would be China. Maybe it would be the culture war. Maybe it should be drugs. At last, from their point of view, 9-11 presented the opportunity they needed, and thus began the newest unwinnable war in the tradition of LBJ: The War on Terror...

Ramsey Clark: "The winds of impeachment are sweeping the country"

Statement by Ramsey Clark, Former U.S. Attorney General: “The winds of impeachment are sweeping the country.”

The following is a press release sent to the national and international media by ImpeachBush.org. The second half of the press release includes a statement from Ramsey Clark, former U.S. Attorney General.

A nationwide grassroots movement to impeach George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and other high officials was launched on January 18, 2003. Ramsey Clark called for the impeachment of President that day when he addressed a crowd estimated to be nearly a half million strong on the Mall in Washington D.C., in what the Washington Post described as the largest anti-war protest since the end of the Vietnam War.

As President Bush and Vice President Cheney were actively deceiving the country with false propaganda aimed at justifying an unprovoked war of aggression, Mr. Clark on January 18 announced the formation of the VoteToImpeach.org and ImpeachBush.org web sites. He stated that the active preparation for the launch of a war of aggression against Iraq constituted an impeachable offense. He asked people to join an on-line referendum.

As of today, nearly 900,000 people have voted for impeachment with ImpeachBush.org web site.

The impeachment movement that Mr. Clark started has evolved into one of the most dynamic grassroots movements in recent U.S. history.

On April 23, 2007 the Vermont State Senate voted in support of the impeachment of Bush and Cheney. One week earlier, elected officials in Vermont said the impeachment resolution didn’t stand a chance. Then their offices were flooded with emails, faxes, and phone calls, and the tide turned.

Scores of cities around the country have witnessed impeachment resolutions carry in the City Council.

On April 28, impeachment actions will be taking place from New York City to San Francisco and every place in between.

Polls taken by Zogby have indicated that 52% of the American people support the impeachment of Bush if he lied to Congress about the reasons for going to war in Iraq.

The ImpeachBush.org movement has placed full page newspaper ads in the New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Boston Globe and many other newspapers. When President Bush speaks at the Coast Guard Graduation on May 23 in New London, Ct. there will be a large crowd of protesters calling for his impeachment. When Dick Cheney speaks three days later at the West Point Graduation Ceremony he will be met too by a big crowd calling for his impeachment along with that of President Bush.

Today as the rumblings for impeachment are starting to reverberate inside the House of Representatives, the only place where Articles for Impeachment can set the impeachment process into motion, Ramsey Clark issued the following statement.

Ramsey Clark's statement to the media

“We have seen that Congress can be moved. The Bush Administration is reeling from its own wrongdoing. The horror its war of aggression has wreaked on the people of Iraq and thousands of U.S. service members must trouble the sleep of every sentient American. The Surge is only adding to the death and destruction.

“All over the country supporters of impeachment are intensifying their efforts. Our focus must be on Congress, and the priorities of full troop withdrawal and the impeachment of President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other culpable officials within the Administration.

“In recent weeks, tens of thousands of people have sent letters or called their elected representatives in Congress. On the statewide and local level people have been demanding local officials take a stand. Large scale pro-Impeachment demonstrations took place on March 17 at the Pentagon and in more than 1,000 other protests marking the 4th anniversary of the start of the Iraq war.

“The crimes committed by President Bush and Vice President Cheney are numerous. The Bush Administration’s war of aggression, its assault on human dignity at Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, demeaning the Geneva Conventions and Habeas Corpus, invading the privacy of any American it chooses, corrupting the rule of law in the Department of Justice and others.

“President Bush and Vice President Cheney should be held accountable as it is proscribed in the Constitution, Article II, Section 4: The President, Vice President, and all civil officers of the United States shall be removed from office or impeachment for and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.

“The authors of the Constitution were serious about impeachment and intended that the carefully prescribed procedures and principles of impeachment written into the text be faithfully executed. We, the growing impeachment movement that is sweeping this country from one end to the other, will make the members of the House of Representatives become as serious and courageous about impeachment as the Founding Fathers were.”

Save Black Bears in Alaska

A message from Vida

PET/America: Save Black Bears in Alaska

The Department of Fish and Game is Alaska wants to hunt 900-1400 Black Bears to their deaths by any means necessary, including sows and cubs.

This program is to be part of the heavily criticised aerial wolf-kill program, part of which has already been declared illegal by the courts.

The Department says the hunt is necessary to protect Moose numbers, however there have been questions raised about the science behind their estimates, why such a large number of bears need to be killed, the "anything goes" methodology of the hunt wherein fair chase and usual hunting ethics don’t even apply, and even the plan's practicality - Department officials have themselves admitted that the plan is unlikely to work, and at least one major hunting group has said that they do not support it. The public certainly don’t. So why go ahead with it?

We are asking that the Department reconsider this plan. To sign the petition, please go to the following link:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/966036999

The hunt is due to begin on July 1, we need your signatures now!!

An unlikely dissenter has come forward with a revised understanding of globalization that argues for thorough reformation. This man knows the global trading system from the inside because he is a respected veteran of multinational business. His ideas contain an explosive message: that what established authorities teach Americans about global trade is simply wrong - disastrously wrong for the United States.

Yellowstone Delisting Beginning of End for Grizzly

"On March 29, 2007, the Department of the Interior removed federal protection for Yellowstone's grizzly bears under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). On April 29 this delisting will take effect. Only a challenge in federal court can stop this final ruling. I believe this decision will mark the beginning of the end of the grizzly in the contiguous states," says Doug Peacock.

War Causes Air Force Chief Master Sergeant to Change Course

Jeff Slocum is a 41-year-old chief master sergeant in the United States Air Force. He's spent the last 21 years in the military and has been stationed in Europe, Korea, Honduras and the Middle East. He's now an engineer at Pope Air Force Base near Fayetteville, North Carolina. He loves his work, has enormous faith in the military and believes in serving his country. Until recently, he planned to spend his entire life in military service. But the events in Iraq have forced Slocum to question the viability of that plan and ultimately to change his life course. "First and foremost, we should never have gone into Iraq," says Slocum.

Economic Armageddon Is Coming

By Joel S. Hirschhorn

Stocksplosion

By Jim Kunstler

We've entered a euphoric phase of financial arbitrage capitalism with extreme Ponzi overtones, a pyramid scheme of revolving credit rackets and percentage spread plays completely abstracted from any reality of fruitful activity. The reason we don't even call "money" by its former name anymore is precisely because we realize at some semi-conscious level that "liquidity" is not really money.

Housing Bubble Boondoggle: "Is it too late to get out"?

Details of the meltdown are being downplayed in the media to prevent panic-selling among the public. But the Fed knows what's going on. In fact, the Federal Reserve and the five other federal agencies that regulate banks issued this statement just last week.

FDA Wants to Eliminate Natural Health Care

by Tom DeWeese

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has launched another sneak-attack, trying to regulate your health freedom into oblivion. Through FDA’s unholy partnerships with Big Pharma and the Codex Alimentarius Commission (an offshoot of the UN), we are very close to losing alternative health care in America. This is a crisis, and needs your immediate action......

U.S. Health Freedom on Verge of Collapse

by Byron Richards, CCN

The anti-American FDA is actively seeking to undermine U.S. laws and harmonize our dietary supplement laws with Mexico and Canada. This is being done through the Trilateral Cooperation Charter – an illegal agreement set up with health regulatory agencies in Mexico and Canada. It is part of the campaign towards a North American Union, one which would be a catastrophe for health freedom in this country as dietary supplement laws in Canada and Mexico are far more restrictive than in the U.S......
