Rising Mortgage Debt, Weak House Prices

Dean Baker reports: "The inventory of unsold new and existing homes both stand at record highs. The 4,200,000 stock of unsold existing homes is more than a year's supply at the pre-bubble sales rates of the mid-90s. Furthermore, the surge in foreclosures ensures that a large additional supply will be entering the market well into 2008."

Blackwater Sues Slain Employees' Families to Silence Them

After filing its suit against the dead men's estates, Blackwater demanded that its claim and the families' existing lawsuit be handled in private arbitration. By suing the families in arbitration, Blackwater has attempted to move the examination of their wrongful conduct outside the eye of the public and away from a jury. This comes at the same time Congress is investigating Blackwater.

Democrats May Subpoena NSA Documents

Senior House Democrats threatened Thursday to issue subpoenas to obtain secret legal opinions and other documents from the Justice Department related to the National Security Agency's domestic wiretapping program. If the Democrats take that step, it would mark the most aggressive action yet by Congress in its oversight of the wiretapping program, and could set the stage for a constitutional showdown over the separation of powers.

CDU-Politiker Teubner wirft Kanzleramtsminister de Maizière Rechtsbruch vor

In der Affäre um angebliche Verbindungen sächsischer Politiker und Justizbeamter in kriminelle Netzwerke hat der Chef der Parlamentarischen Kontrollkommission (PKK) im sächsischen Landtag, Gottfried Teubner, schwere Vorwürfe gegen Kanzleramtsminister Thomas de Maizière (beide CDU) erhoben. De Maizière habe als früherer Innenminister in Sachsen und oberster Dienstherr des Landesamtes für Verfassungsschutz die Vorschriften "nicht für ganz voll genommen", zitierte die "Leipziger Volkszeitung" Teubner. De Maizières Handeln sei "glatter Rechtsbruch". Als Dienstherr des sächsischen Geheimdienstes war de Maizière nach Ansicht von Teubner laut Gesetz verpflichtet, die PKK über rechtstaatlich bedeutsame Hinweise zur Organisierten Kriminalität (OK) zu informieren. "Dies ist nicht geschehen", sagte Teubner. De Maizière wollte sich zu den Anschuldigungen nicht äußern.

Kanzleramtschef de Maiziere möchte nicht zurücktreten

Der Aufarbeitung der Korruptionsaffäre in Sachsen sieht der frühere Landesinnenminister und heutige Kanzleramtschef Thomas de Maizière (CDU) angeblich gelassen entgegen. Er habe mit dieser Affäre kein Problem und sich auch nichts vorzuwerfen, sagte der CDU-Politiker am 11. Juni im ARD-"Morgenmagazin". Die Vorgänge würden jetzt von der Justiz aufgearbeitet. Dabei gehe es um die Frage, wann er als Innenminister wen informiert habe. Einen Rücktritt lehnt er ab. "Selbstverständlich" bleibe er Kanzleramtschef, sagte de Maiziére. Der Chef der Parlamentarischen Kontrollkommission (PKK) im sächsischen Landtag, Gottfried Teubner (CDU), hatte de Maiziére Rechtsbruch vorgeworfen. Der parlamentarische Geschäftsführer der Linksfraktion im Bundestag, Ulrich Maurer, forderte den Kanzleramtschef zum Rücktritt auf.

Juni, das Parlamentarische Kontrollgremium (PKG) des Bundestages für die Geheimdienste solle sich mit de Maizière im beschäftigen. Vertreter von FDP und Linkspartei forderten, der frühere sächsische Innenminister solle sein Amt als Geheimdienst-Koordinator ruhen lassen. Einem Medienbericht zufolge soll auch Sachsens Ministerpräsident Georg Milbradt (CDU) schon länger von der Affäre gewusst haben, ohne eine förmliche Untersuchung der Vorgänge zu veranlassen.

Regierung bestätigt Strafanzeige gegen Kanzleramtschef de Maizière

Die Bundesregierung sieht derzeit keinen Anlass für personelle Konsequenzen aus der sächsischen Korruptionsaffäre. Der Parlamentarische Justizstaatsekretär Alfred Hartenbach (SPD) bestätigte am 13. Juni im Bundestag in Berlin zwar, dass es eine Strafanzeige gegen den heutigen Kanzleramtschef und früheren sächsischen Innenminister Thomas de Maizière (CDU) wegen Strafvereitelung im Amt gebe. Doch beruhe diese Anzeige allein auf Medienberichten und Gerüchten. Daher sehe die Regierung derzeit "keine Notwendigkeit für Konsequenzen". Abgesehen von Medienberichten gibt es offenbar umfangreiche Akten des Verfassungsschutzes zu den Vorgängen.

Hedgefonds bleiben von G8 unbehelligt

Die Staats- und Regierungschefs der G8-Staaten wollten sich nicht auf eine Vereinbarung über einen Verhaltenskodex für die risikoreichen Hedgefonds einigen. In einer gemeinsamen Erklärung zu Wachstum und Verantwortung in der Weltwirtschaft räumten die Staats- und Regierungschefs der sieben führenden Industriestaaten und Russlands am 7. Juni lediglich die wachsenden Risiken solcher Fonds für das Weltfinanzsystem ein. Angesichts des Wachstums dieser Fondsart und der zunehmenden Komplexität der Handelsinstrumente müsse man weiter "wachsam" bleiben, hieß es in der Erklärung. Andererseits betonten die Politiker, dass Hedgefonds wesentlich zur "Effizienz des Weltfinanzsystems" beitragen würden.

Deutschland ist Schlusslicht bei Rentenleistungen für Geringverdiener

Deutschland präsentiert sich selbst gerne als "Vorreiter" für alle guten Dinge auf dieser Welt. Der Blick von außen ist manchmal etwas anders. In internationalen Vergleichen ist Deutschland immer wieder Schlusslicht. So warnt die Organisation für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung (OECD) vor einer steigenden Altersarmut in Deutschland. Einer am 7. Juni in Paris vorgestellten Vergleichsstudie zufolge liegt Deutschland bei den gesetzlichen Rentenleistungen für Geringverdiener unter den 30 OECD-Staaten an letzter Stelle. Grund sei, dass die Leistungen im Gegensatz zu den meisten OECD-Ländern linear an das Einkommen gekoppelt seien. Deutschland solle "der Rentenentwicklung für Geringverdiener besondere Aufmerksamkeit schenken und einem Anstieg der Altersarmut vorbeugen", sagte die Rentenexpertin der Organisation, Monika Queisser.

MONTANA INTENDS TO SLAUGHTER WILD BUFFALO TODAY

Dear Buffalo Friends,

WE HAVE BEEN LIED TO. Your calls are needed now.

Approximately 50 wild buffalo are in the trap near West Yellowstone's airport right now. After all their quotes in papers worldwide promising not to slaughter any buffalo left in Montana, the agencies have back-tracked on their word to the American people and others throughout the world.

MONTANA INTENDS TO SLAUGHTER WILD BUFFALO TODAY.

A Montana Department of LIEStock press release stated they will capture and slaughter any bull bison that are in the small group of approximately 50 still in Montana. They claim the bison trap cannot handle bulls, which is another lie because, as you know, they've captured and sent to slaughter hundreds of bull bison over the years. Intent to slaughter bull bison was confirmed by officials with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.

Bull bison pose no risk of brucellosis transmission. With calving season over, none of the buffalo pose any risk of brucellosis transmission to cattle. There are no cattle on the public lands that wild bison are migrating to. There has never been a confirmed case of wild bison transmitting brucellosis to cattle.

Agencies might also send yearling buffalo to the Corwin Springs quarantine facility, where they will be raised like livestock and used in scientific experiments. Half of all the yearlings sent to Corwin Springs will be slaughtered.

Apparently, the agencies will still transport the buffalo mothers and calves they capture in West Yellowstone to the Park's Stephens Creek bison trap near Gardiner. Transport is going to be a living hell for these moms and calves who will be separated for the over 150-mile long journey. They will hold the bison captive for a few days before releasing them.

BFC patrols are in the field documenting everything and doing a lot of community outreach near the capture facility.

PLEASE TAKE ACTION and attempt to save the lives of these bulls and yearlings. We've done it once, let's do it again. Please spread the word to save this herd!

* MONTANA GOVERNOR BRIAN SCHWEITZER: Ask him why he lied. Demand that Schweitzer keep his promise to not slaughter any buffalo! Tell him the solution is in year-round habitat for wild buffalo in Montana.
(406) 444-3111 (phone) * (406) 444-5529 (fax) * governor@mt.gov (email)

* MONTANA ACTING STATE VET JEANNE RANKIN: Urge her to withdraw her decision to slaughter Yellowstone bison bulls who pose NO RISK of transmitting brucellosis. Remind her the whole world is watching!
(406) 444-1895 (phone) * (800) 523-3162 (phone) * (406) 444-1929 (fax) * jrankin@mt.gov (email)

* YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK SUPERINTENDENT SUZANNE LEWIS: Ask her why she is part of the lie? Do not allow Montana to slaughter bulls or put yearlings in quarantine! These are AMERICA'S last wild buffalo, not Montana's. Tell her you know the Stephens Creek trap could hold bulls, so there's no reason that Montana should slaughter them!
(307) 344-2002 (phone)* (307) 344-2005 (fax) * suzanne_lewis@nps.gov OR yell_superintendent@nps.gov (email)

Thank you for keeping the pressure on these officials! These wild buffalo are the country's last. They have never transmitted the cattle-disease brucellosis back to the cows they got it from. They are native to all of Montana and have a right to roam, especially on our public lands.

Stephanie Seay of the Buffalo Field Campaign on the Slaughter of Wild Buffalo

George Cadman of Free Radio Santa Cruz 101.1 fm interviews Stephanie Seay, media coordinator of the Buffalo Field Campaign about the Montana state and the federal government practice of capturing wild buffalo on public lands and slaughtering them or transporting them hundreds of miles in trucks or trains. In Montana in the last two weeks state and federal authorities planned to slaughter 300 wild buffalo, including calves and their mothers. It was stopped by the BFC and public outcry, but this is not the first time this has happened. In the last 7 years the government has trucked 2,000 wild buffalo to slaughter, 1,000 last year alone. Stephanie also talks about the cattle industry, the power they hold in Montana and how they influence decision making on the treatment of wild buffalo, the huge subsidies that the industry receives, and their access to public lands. And she discusses what concerned citizens can do to help defend the last remaining wild buffalo in North America.

Special Update: Bull Bison Spared; Hazing Continues

All of the buffalo captured in West Yellowstone on Friday - 52 total - were released Sunday morning. This includes the 16 bulls that the Montana Department of Livestock and Yellowstone National Park had intended to slaughter.

THANK YOU! YOUR PERSISTENT ACTION MADE THE DIFFERENCE AGAIN!

In less than two weeks, your calls and emails to Governor Schweitzer and Yellowstone National Park saved the lives of hundreds of buffalo and have brought an incredible amount of media attention to the issue.

While there is a relatively happy ending, these 52 buffalo endured an ordeal. Not only was their migration forcefully choked, they were captured, moms and calves were separated, family groups were broken apart, they were loaded onto livestock trailers, unloaded at the Duck Creek bison trap, re-loaded onto livestock trailers and hauled over 150 miles to the northern boundary of Yellowstone National Park. Then they were placed in the Stephens Creek bison trap where they spent a few days before being hazed deeper into Yellowstone. Agents released them at 5:30 in the morning. Starting that early indicates that there was something they didn't want the public to see. You can see a short BFC video clip of the capture on our home page: http://www.buffalofieldcampaign.org.

Over the weekend and up through today, the agents have been continuously harassing wild bison in Montana and Yellowstone National Park. Park visitors witnessed the shameful spectacle of the Interagency Bison Management Plan participants hazing wild bison from horseback and with a helicopter inside Yellowstone's boundaries. One Park ranger explained to outraged tourists today that they were witnessing "a buffalo drive." Welcome to the world's first national park.

Wild buffalo are being managed like livestock and treated as vermin under pressure from Montana's cattle industry. The agencies and media have been describing wild, migrating buffalo with words like "renegade," "wandering" and "recalcitrant." These same terms never apply to migrating whales, salmon, birds or other animals; why does Montana insist on such misnomers for wild bison? Native to nearly the entire North American continent, wild buffalo roam. Buffalo are doing exactly what they evolved to do. They are attempting to naturally restore themselves and while this should be cause for enormous celebration, government and industry punish them.

Year-round habitat for wild buffalo in Montana is the solution.

Keep the pressure on the decision-makers and the vision of wild, free-roaming buffalo alive. We will make it happen.

Roam Free!

CIA Agents Go on Trial in Italy Before Bush Visit

Hours before Bush visits Italy, 26 US citizens will go on trial in absentia in Milan on Friday, accused of carrying out one of Washington's most controversial policies in its "war on terrorism." Almost all of the accused, believed to be CIA agents, have been charged with the 2003 kidnapping in Milan of a Muslim who was on Washington's list of terrorist suspects, flying him to Egypt and torturing him under interrogation.

"For months, senators have listened to a parade of well-coached Justice Department witnesses claiming to know nothing about how nine prosecutors were chosen for firing. This week, it was the turn of Bradley Schlozman, a former federal attorney in Missouri, to be uninformative and not credible. It is time for Senator Patrick Leahy, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, to deliver subpoenas that have been approved for Karl Rove, former White House Counsel Harriet Miers, and their top aides, and to make them testify in public and under oath," says The New York Times.

Political Hiring in Justice Division Probed

Karen Stevens, Tovah Calderon and Teresa Kwong had a lot in common. They had good performance ratings as career lawyers in the Justice Department's civil rights division. And they were minority women transferred out of their jobs two years ago - over the objections of their immediate supervisors - by Bradley Schlozman, then the acting assistant attorney general for civil rights. Schlozman ordered supervisors to tell the women that they had performance problems or that the office was overstaffed. But one lawyer, Conor Dugan, told colleagues that the recent Bush appointee had confided that his real motive was to "make room for some good Americans" in that high-impact office, according to four lawyers who said they heard the account from Dugan.

John Edwards begins: "For six years, George Bush has used the language 'war on terrorism' to force through an ideological agenda that undermines our values and does nothing to undermine terrorism. The Bush 'Global War on Terror Doctrine' is a political slogan - a political slogan that the president has used to stifle opposition to the biggest abuses and worst mistakes of his administration: Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, spying on Americans, torture. None of this has made us safer, and all of it has undermined American values and the perception of American values around the world."

Protests planned over church mast bid

By Peter Dewhurst

St Bede The Venerable Church, which is the proposed site of the mobile telephone mast

FEARS over plans to install a mobile phone mast on a Pendle church have led to a campaign to oppose it – including possible protests at services on Sunday.

The proposal is to add the mast – disguised as a flagpole – to St Bede's Church in Railway Street, a residential area of Nelson. Initial permission will be needed from a consistory court, which deals with planning issues within Anglican churches.

Chairman of Pendle Council's Nelson Committee Coun. David Foster has called on residents to turn up at the church on Sunday to object.

A campaign was mounted in February, 2006, after letters were sent to residents. The response to applicants QS4 was that householders did not want a phone mast in or on the church, says ward councillor Gary Bird.

He added: "I am appalled at the way these people have treated our Clover Hill community on this issue – firstly attempting to gain the residents' confidence in 2006 by claiming no development would proceed without their opinions being taken into account, then seemingly disregarding these opinions by proposing a further development in 2007 without any resident consultation whatsoever."

Coun. Foster added: "I am disgusted with the Church of England after residents of Clover Hill objected to these proposals for a mast on St Bede's, highlighting the health hazards.

"The health of the residents must be paramount before coppers into the church funds.

"By urging all residents to attend the church services of St Paul's and St Bede's this Sunday to voice their disapproval we will make it clear that we, the residents of Clover Hill, are against the proposals for the new 3G telephone systems, so telling QS4 that they are not wanted here in Clover Hill."

Coun. Bird urges all residents and churchgoers to make their objections to the scheme in writing, by Friday, June 15th, to: The Diocesan Registrar, Diocesan Offices, Cathedral Close, Blackburn, BB1 5AA.

The Vicar said: "I would encourage anyone to write to the Registrar with their opinions. I feel it is important everyone's views are considered.

"I would encourage people to make their views known but would ask them not to disrupt the worship."

Anne McMillan of QS4 said: "We have complied with the local planning authority regulations by submitting a licence notification, which has since timed-out with no comment from the local authority. Running in parallel with this is the petition for faculty, which is with the registrar of the Diocese of Blackburn awaiting completion of the citation period as per the laws of the Church of England.

"This 28-day period finishes on Thursday, June 14th, and thereafter the papers, including the public notice, will be forwarded to the Chancellor of the Diocese of Blackburn for his consideration. The public notice is currently on display at the church. The form contains details as to how the public can comment on the proposal directly to the registrar.

"We have followed all the ecclesiastical and secular guidelines in respect of the proposal, and would willingly meet with Couns Bird and Foster at a mutually-convenient time should they wish to do so."

Nelson police chief Insp. Russ Procter said: "We would encourage any persons wishing to protest to seriously consider the congregation in the church and their right to worship in private.

"They should also consider that there are possible public order offences involved in protesting within a church or its grounds. We would ask them to consider carefully their actions."

l Protesters at the church need to be careful, of course. Under the Ecclesiastical Courts Jurisdiction Act 1860, people "guilty of riotous, violent or indecent behaviour" in any cathedral, church or chapel, or even in the grounds, can be fined or even jailed.

#Die Linkspartei.PDS: Pressemitteilungen

08. Juni 2007

Protest ist in, G8 sind out

Zum Abschluss des G8-Gipfels erklärt die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Katja Kipping:

Die Gipfelproteste waren abgesehen von den Ausschreitungen am Samstag

- ein Erfolg der Vielfalt und Kreativität. Die zahlreichen friedlichen Aktionen und Diskussionsrunden haben dem G8-Gipfel zu Recht die Show gestohlen. Das Signal war eindeutig: Eine andere Welt ist möglich! DIE LINKE war Bestandteil der Gipfelproteste und hat zu deren Gelingen beigetragen. Wir waren als LINKE sichtbar, gleichzeitig haben wir vertrauensvoll mit einem breiten Bündnisspektrum kooperiert und eigene gut besuchte Diskussionsangebote eingebracht. Eigentliche Ergebnisse des Gipfels in Heiligendamm sucht man vergeblich. Es wurde als Erfolg verkauft, was ohnehin schon verabredet war. Unterm Strich gibt es:

* keine wirklichen Zielvorgaben oder verbindlichen Selbstverpflichtungen beim Kampf gegen den Klimawandel,

* windelweiche Erklärungen zur Transparenz von Hedge Fonds ohne Konsequenzen,

* keine politischen Vorgaben für Investitionen in den Schwellenländern,

* viel Betroffenheit statt aktiver Politik in Krisenregionen.

Auf die wirklichen Fragen unserer Zeit, wie Klimawandel und Armut in Afrika, hat der Gipfel keine Antworten gegeben. Die G8 als interner Machtzirkel hat sich überholt, es wird Zeit, dass die Regierungschefs von ihrem Gipfel herabsteigen und eine Politik auf Augenhöhe betreiben auch mit den Entwicklungsländern. Nach dem Gipfel ist vor dem Gipfel - der globalisierungskritische Protest geht weiter. Die Linke muss weiterhin organischer Bestandteil sozialer Bewegungen bleiben, um gesellschaftliche Kräfteverhältnisse zu verändern und Spielräume für linke Politik auszuweiten.

Mutmaßlicher Polizist der Polizei übergeben
Polizei soll vermummte Zivilbeamte als Provokateure eingesetzt haben

Während sich die G8-Teilnehmer in Heiligendamm hinter verschlossenen Türen treffen, tobt draußen vor dem Sperrzaun ein verbissener Kampf. Sicherheitsbehörden und Demonstranten liefern sich nicht nur ein Katz-und-Maus-Spiel, sondern ringen sodann auch um die Deutungshoheit über das Geschehen bei den Protesten. Geht die Polizei zu brutal vor oder setzt sie gar Agents Provocateurs ein? Stand ein Sabotageakt unmittelbar bevor? Werden Zahlen von Verletzten manipuliert? Schwaden von Behauptungen und Gerüchten umziehen den Gipfel. Die Wahrheit ist nicht klar auszumachen. Manchmal allerdings scheinen Details eine deutliche Sprache zu sprechen. Der Anwaltliche Notdienst wirft der Polizei vor, Zivilbeamte als Provokateure eingesetzt haben.

Kontrolle von Briefsendungen wegen G8-Gipfel soll unrechtmäßig gewesen sein

Nach der systematischen Kontrolle von Briefsendungen von G8-Gegnern hat die Bürgerrechtsorganisation Humanistische Union Beschwerde bei der Bundesanwaltschaft erhoben. "Bei den Kontrollen wurden die gesetzlichen Vorgaben gleich mehrfach außer Acht gelassen", sagte deren stellvertretender Bundesvorsitzender Fredrik Roggan am 7. Juni in Berlin. Eine Kontrolle sämtlicher Briefe daraufhin, ob sie eventuell verdächtigen Aussehens sind, sei mit den gesetzlichen Vorgaben unvereinbar. Ein Ermittlungsrichter des Bundesgerichtshofs (BGH) hatte die Maßnahme nach den Paragrafen 99 und 100 der Strafprozessordnung angeordnet, um Bekennerschreiben von militanten G8-Gegnern frühzeitig aus dem Postgang aussortieren zu können.

Journalists, you’re in the army now

TCS Daily
by Robert Haddick

06/06/07

The days of the independent, neutral war correspondent, objectively reporting from a war’s front lines, are quickly coming to an end. In the future, a war correspondent will either effectively be a soldier for one faction of a conflict, or he will literally not survive in the war zone. In today’s media age, the requirement for combatants to shape perceptions about the nature of a conflict, and the necessity of denying that ability to the enemy, are more crucial than firepower and logistics, the traditional measures of battlefield dominance. Successful media operations energize a faction’s supporters and demoralize its enemies. When effective, this is more important than squadrons of fighter-bombers or train-loads of assault rifles. Whether they like or not, journalists are in the army now...

If the public is to be kept obedient, it must be kept in a constant state of fear

Whither the remnant?

LewRockwell.Com
by Butler Shaffer

06/07/07

Political systems do not like to resort to any more coercive practices than are necessary to sustain their power over people. Threats and the exercise of force are the resources upon which the state depends, and — like the wealth that private persons spend in conducting their peaceful, marketplace transactions — political authorities are not inclined to waste their usage. But when state power is no longer respected; when men and women engage in basic social practices outside the supervision of the state; and when all of politics comes to be seen as nothing more than an elaborate self-serving racket benefiting those who control the machinery of the state, the herd must be shepherded back to its appointed confinements. If the public is to be kept obedient, it must be kept in a constant state of fear...

Destroying freedom one piece at a time

Classically Liberal
by CLS

06/07/07

Certain neighboring, friendly nations have routinely been open to Americans for visits without the need of federal travel documents known as passports. Canada, Mexico and some Caribbean nations have always welcomed Americans provided they have some form of ID. They still do. It is the United States government that is restricting the ability of US citizens to travel without being screened by the federal government first. This is entirely a roadblock imposed by DC and not by foreign governments. One of the hallmarks of the Bush administration has been utter incompetency at any task it has set out to do. They knew for months that these new restrictions on travel freedom were being imposed. And yet they were unprepared for it. Thousands and thousands of citizens who had travel plans are finding the US government is screwing them up. Thanks George. Passport appliations that were filed months ago are still being processed and people are missing their planes. The State Department blames the long delays on ‘unprecendented demand.’ Bs... These people are not flocking for the documents because they are a new fad. They are there because George Bush is forcing them to be there. No one is clamouring for federal approval for their vacation plans...

Once the prisoner starts hallucinating …

Unqualified Offerings
by Thoreau

06/06/06

I don’t know which is more disturbing: That they’re willing to inflict psychosis on somebody, or that they think a psychotic, hallucinating inmate is a reliable source of information. Even if one had no moral objections to torturing ‘bad guys,’ and no pragmatic concerns about whether the government can reliably distinguish ‘bad guys’ from ‘guys caught in the wrong place at the wrong time on a hunch,’ there’s still the issue of reliability. With methods that inflict physical pain, there’s the possibility that somebody will say anything to make it stop. With fanatics, there’s the possibility that they’ll deliberately lie to buy time for the alleged ticking time bomb to go off. And now we add a new concern to the list: That we put the inmate into a state where he can’t grasp reality, and hence his statements are unreliable...

Voyage to the top of the trees

Salon

06/08/07

A science writer for the New Yorker known for his ‘dark biology’ series of books about biological warfare and killer viruses, Richard Preston has written extensively about the fearful power of nature, especially when unleashed by human ignorance, arrogance and greed. ‘The Wild Trees,’ which began as a story in the magazine, is also a cautionary tale, about the destruction of the forests, and especially forest canopies, where half of all species on earth are thought to exist. But really it’s a love story — about love of nature and discovery, of tree climbing, and of botanists for each other. It’s so beautifully written that I found myself reading it out loud...

June 14 is going to be a big day, says William Rivers Pitt, referring to the date that I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby will hear the outcome of his appeals process. Bush's decision on whether to pardon Libby presents, "perhaps the most dangerous tipping point facing the Bush administration," declares Pitt. Does Bush pardon Libby to avoid "the kind of terminal public backlash Nixon absorbed after the firing of Archibald Cox during the Watergate scandal," or should he avoid pardoning Libby and risk Libby's decision to "escape prison time by telling Fitzgerald what he knows?"

Restoring America's Standing in the World and Security Begins with Restoring Constitution, Habeas Corpus

Help Repeal Bush's Mock Trials Law

Did you know that last year President Bush signed a law that dishonors our obligations under the Geneva Conventions and allows unreliable statements gained by torture or coercion to be used as evidence against defendants. This is just one more nail in America's international reputation, that has already suffered terribly because of the Bush war of choice against Iraq. The international good will toward America that existed after the al Qaeda attacks of September 11, 2001 has been squandered by the Bush Administration.

Chris Dodd is seeking to restore America's moral authority and rebuild international respect for our country. Earlier this month Chris Dodd introduced a bill that would stop President Bush's troop escalation in Iraq, and now he has introduced legislation that overturns the sham trials and admissibility of tainted evidence made possible by the Military Commissions Act. Read the legislation:
