Double Standards: How Our Lawlessness Strengthens Our Enemies

Shahid Buttar, Truthout: "We have failed to even investigate torturers, yet we have prosecuted and imprisoned millions for lesser offenses. And we allow mass murderers the benefit of constitutional rights that we deny detainees at Guantanamo Bay and elsewhere. Until policymakers examine and fix these double standards, they will continue to undermine our foreign policy, as well as our domestic criminal justice system."

Fear and Paranoia as Guantanamo Marks Its Eighth Anniversary

Andy Worthington, Truthout: "On the eighth anniversary of the opening of Guantanamo, the fate of the 198 prisoners still held is, in many ways, no clearer than it was a year ago. President Obama has released 42 men since taking office on January 20, 2009, but has already admitted that he will miss his self-imposed deadline for the prison's closure on January 22."

Phone mast approval angers parish council

By ROBERT GIBSON

Published at 09:40, Friday, 08 January 2010

A PHONE mast is to be sited just 800 metres north of Hadrian’s Wall, despite objections from parish councillors, who described the idea as “completely unacceptable”.

Telefonica O2 UK will be erecting a 27.5 metre lattice tower and base station at West Heddon Nursery, which lies within the official setting of the World Heritage Site.

Avatar Obama and the United States of Hype

Angel Luis Lara, La Jornada (Translation: Ryan Croken): "We live in the era of hype. The word, which bounces and bounds throughout the matrices of our information age, refers to a cultural product that has been so juiced up with marketing that its popularity takes off independently and regardless of its quality. It is the wrapping that matters: the advertisement is louder, more important and more real than what is advertised."

The 2010 political timebomb is unemployment

The Nation
by John Nichols

01/09/10

American employers eliminated 4.2 million jobs in 2009 and sent unemployment soaring into double digits for the first time in more than a quarter century. Since the fall of last year, the official jobless rate has been over ten percent, while the unofficial rate (taking in the severely underemployed and those who have given up looking) has been over 17 percent. And, despite the ridiculous ‘green-shoots’ speculation of the Obama administration and overblown ‘recovery’ fantasies of the financial media that has blown every major economic story of recent years, the situation is getting worse. Analysts had predicted that December layoffs would number around 8,000. Instead, the figure was more than ten times higher: 85,000. Unemployment held steady at 10 percent — not because the job market is stabilizing, but because tens of thousands of Americans gave up looking for work and are no longer counted among the unemployed...

Shadow of homelessness

Freedom's Phoenix
by Nick Bravo

01/28/10

It’s easy for the masses to make excuses about homelessness, that the people who are homeless are crazy, or criminals, or drug addicts, or in some other way the worthless floatasm of society that should be pushed to the edge and out of the sight of ‘polite society.’ The homeless are scorned, ridiculed, pitied, taken advantage of in many ways and where can the homeless go for help? Not the police, the police more often than not are given free range to abuse and victimize the most disenfranchised members of society. In many ways the homeless are the perfect prey for societal predators who sadistically thirst for the thrill of harming one of their own kind...

Tip of the Iceberg

Eliot Spitzer, William Black and Frank Partnoy, New Deal 2.0: "In a December New York Times op-ed, we called for the full public release of AIG email messages, internal accounting documents and financial models generated in the last decade. Today, a Bloomberg story revealed that under Timothy Geithner's leadership, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York told AIG to withhold details from the public about its payments to banks during the crisis. This information was discovered when emails between the company and the Fed were requested by representative Darrell Issa, ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee."
