Will Your State Be the First to Send Impeachment Charges to Congress?

Three state legislatures, Illinois, California, and Vermont, have now introduced resolutions to send petitions to the U.S. House of Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against Bush (and, in the case of California, Cheney too). Minnesota, Missouri, and Oklahoma all have legislatures still active in May. Delaware, Louisana, R.I., South Carolina, and Puerto Rico are all up and running through June. New Hampshire is in session through July.

Every state has legislators brave enough to take the lead if we urge them to do so and provide them with the information they need.

Here's a kit to get you started:

Here's a place to get organized with others in your area:

Call Your Senators This Week!

The Senate is expected to vote on $67 billion more for war this week, and to vote on amendments to that supplemental spending bill. Senator Bill Frist may seek to block some amendments from coming to a vote.

Call both of your senators and tell them you do not want one more dime spent on this war, that you do not want debate closed off by blocking amendments, and that you support the following amendments:

Senator Joseph Biden's amendment to prevent this money being spent on the construction of permanent bases.

Senator Robert Byrd's amendment stating that any request for funds for an ongoing military operation overseas, including operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, should be included in the annual budget of the President rather than using emergency supplemental appropriations bills that receive less scrutiny.

Senator Russ Feingold's amendment requiring the redeployment of U.S. forces from Iraq by December 31, 2006.

Call the Capitol switchboard tollfree at 888-818-6641 or at 202-224-3121.

On Thursday Iraqi and American women protested in Senator Frist's office. See photos.

Listen here:

Let’s impeach the president for lying
And leading our country into war
Abusing all the power that we gave him
And shipping all our money out the door
He’s the man who hired all the criminals
The White House shadows who hide behind closed doors
And bend the facts to fit with their new stories
Of why we have to send our men to war
Let’s impeach the president for spying
On citizens inside their own homes
Breaking every law in the country
By tapping our computers and telephones
What if Al Qaeda blew up the levees
Would New Orleans have been safer that way
Sheltered by our government’s protection
Or was someone just not home that day?
Let’s impeach the president
For hijacking our religion and using it to get elected
Dividing our country into colors
And still leaving black people neglected
Thank god he’s racking down on steroids
Since he sold his old baseball team
There’s lot of people looking at big trouble
But of course the president is clean
Thank God

Al Gore on why America is close to a tipping point on global warming

Some 57 million U.S. workers say they would join a union if they could. But when workers try to gain a union voice on the job, employers respond with intimidation, harassment and retaliation. And our labor laws are too weak to stop them.

The Employee Free Choice Act would ensure that when a majority of employees in a workplace decide to form a union, they can do so without the debilitating obstacles employers now use to block their free choice.

Specifically, the Employee Free Choice Act (H.R. 1696 and S. 842) would strengthen protections for workers' freedom to form unions by requiring employers to recognize a union once a majority of workers signed cards authorizing union representation. It also would provide for mediation and arbitration of first-contract disputes and authorize stronger penalties for employers that violate the legal rights of workers seeking to form unions or negotiate first contracts. Please send a message to your U.S. senators and representative urging them to co-sponsor the Employee Free Choice Act.



This alert is brought to you through the activism of Gretchen Clearwater, Democratic candidate for the U.S House from the 9th district of Indiana. Gretchen needs your help in the next couple days to win her primary election. How many times have you felt helpless and wished you could influence the votes of representatives in other districts to prevail on a critical vote in Congress, but knew you could not do so effectively because you were not one of their own constituents? How much more would you support Gretchen if you do live in her district?

Here we have a courageous candidate who will fight for all the issues you care about, if only she is given the chance to make the run. Please donate whatever you can to help Gretchen get on the radio to recruit and mobilize even more people to speak out so we can have a real impact on these policy decisions now and for the future. What would you give to have a whole legislature of people like Gretchen Clearwater? Won't you give her your support now to make that a reality?


We have been valiantly speaking out with action alerts based on one fundamental premise --- either our representatives in Congress would listen to and heed the voices of their people --- or else we would work to replace them in the next election.

The time for the replacement action is NOW.

If each of us will just contribute what we can, to the most worthy candidates we can find, it will make a real difference in the kind of Congress we will all have to deal with in 2007. Most importantly, strong showings NOW by candidates who DO have a backbone, and WILL stand up and fight, can send a powerful message to the rest that they better start shaping up or we will ship them out too. Make your donation today and it will have cascading positive effects in many other races for months to come.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

Air War in Iraq

Reviewed by Sarah Randle

Due to diminishing approval ratings, the Bush administration has decided to reduce the number of soldiers serving in Iraq. A key element in these drawdown plans, not mentioned in the President's public statements, is that the departing American troops will be replaced by US airpower. Quick, deadly strikes by US warplanes are seen as a way to improve dramatically the combat capabilities of even the weakest Iraqi combat units. While the number of American casualties would decrease as ground troops are withdrawn, the overall level of violence and the number of Iraqi fatalities would increase dramatically.

No government regulations for Katrina responders exist. KBR, a subsidiary of Halliburton, holds the main contract for Katrina relief work, and while the company maintains it operates legally, hundreds of undocumented immigrants have been hired. Many have been denied promised wages, food and shelter. A period of relaxed labor standards following Katrina created lasting conditions for abuse of workers.

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld holds investments valued between $5 million and $25 million in Gilead Sciences, a biotech company he chaired from 1997 until 2001 and the company that owns the rights to Tamiflu, the most sought-after influenza remedy in the world. Swiss pharmaceutical giant Roche, which holds the sole license to manufacture Tamiflu, last year refused to lift its exclusive rights and allow other drug manufacturers to produce the drug. Fears of a pandemic and the ensuing scramble for Tamiflu have sent Gilead's stock from $35 to $47, making the Pentagon chief-already one of the wealthiest members of the Bush cabinet-at least $1 million richer.

20 Amazing Facts About Voting In The United States

By Bob Rowe

1. 80% of all votes in America are counted by only two companies: Diebold and ES&S.

2. There is no federal agency with regulatory authority or oversight of the US voting machine industry.

3. The vice-president of Diebold and the president of ES&S are brothers.

4. The chairman and CEO of Diebold is a major Bush campaign organizer and donor who wrote in 2003 that he was “committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year.”

5. 35% of ES&S is owned by Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, who became Senator based on votes counted by ES&S machines.

6. Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, a long-time friend of the Bush family, was caught lying about his ownership of ES&S by the Senate Ethics Committee.

7. Senator Chuck Hagel was on a short list of George W. Bush’s vice- presidential candidates.

8. ES&S is the largest voting machine manufacturer in the US and counts almost 60% of all US votes.

9. Diebold’s new touch screen voting machines have no paper trail of any votes. In other words, there is no way to verify that the data coming out of the machine is the same as what was legitimately put in by voters.

10. Diebold also makes ATMs, checkout scanners, and ticket machines, all of which log each transaction and can generate a paper trail.

11. Diebold is based in Ohio.

12. Diebold employs 5 convicted felons as developers. These are the people who write the voting machine computer code.

13. Diebold’s Senior Vice-President, Jeff Dean, was convicted of 23 counts of felony theft in the first degree.

14. Diebold Senior Vice-President Jeff Dean was convicted of planting back doors in his software and using a “high degree of sophistication” to evade detection over a period of 2 years.

15. None of the international election observers were allowed in the polls in Ohio.

16. California banned the use of Diebold machines because the security was so bad. Despite Diebold’s claims that the audit logs could not be hacked, a chimpanzee was able to do it! (See the movie at )

17. 30% of all US votes are carried out on unverifiable touch screen voting machines with no paper trail.

18. Bush’s Help America Vote Act of 2002 has as its goal to replace all machines with the new electronic touch screen systems with no paper trail.

19. All—not some—but all the voting machine errors detected and reported went in favor of Bush or Republican candidates.

20. Major statistical voting oddities (odds on the order of 250 million to
1!)—again always favoring Bush—have been mathematically demonstrated by experts.

Such amazing odds, the equivalent of statistical miracles these were. Was it God? or was it Diebold…?

New Scientist April 18, 2006

It was a stunt that launched a thousand conspiracy theories. Market researcher James Vicary claimed in 1957 that he could get movie-goers to "drink Coca-Cola" and "eat popcorn" by flashing those messages on the screen for such a short time that viewers were unaware of it. People were outraged, and the practice was banned in the UK, Australia and the US.

Vicary later admitted that his study was fabricated, and scientists through the years who have tried to replicate it have largely failed. But now researchers have shown that if the conditions are right, subliminal advertising to promote a brand can be made to work.

Johan Karremans at the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands and his colleagues wanted to see if they could subliminally induce volunteers to favour a particular brand of drink, Lipton Ice. For comparison, they chose a brand of mineral water called Spa Rood, as it was deemed to be as well known as Lipton Ice and equally thirst-quenching.

The researchers asked 61 volunteers to perform a nonsense task -- counting how many times a string of capital Bs was infiltrated by a lower-case b as they flashed up on a screen. The B strings appeared for 300 milliseconds each, and before them, a string of Xs always appeared, flanking a 23-millisecond subliminal message. For the experimental group, the message was "Lipton Ice". Controls saw "Nipeic Tol".

When the volunteers had completed this task, they were asked to choose between Lipton Ice and Spa Rood by clicking one of two keys -- though they were told this was part of a separate study. They were also asked how likely they would be to order either of these drinks if they were sitting on a terrace, and to rate how thirsty they were. Volunteers who rated themselves as thirsty were more likely to choose Lipton Ice, but only if they had received the subliminal message.

In a second study the researchers made half of their 105 volunteers thirsty by giving them a very salty candy before the task. As predicted, among the thirsty, subliminal messaging had an impact. Eighty per cent of thirsty volunteers who had been exposed to the Lipton Ice message chose that product, compared to only 20 per cent of the controls.

The thirstier volunteers rated themselves to be, the more likely they were to choose Lipton Ice. Those who were not thirsty were only slightly more likely to pick the iced tea (Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, DOI:
10.1016/j.jesp.2005.12.2005). "Priming only works when the prime is goal-relevant," says Karremans. The researchers are now planning to study just how long-lasting these effects are.

Meanwhile, advertisers have found alternative means of pushing their products. Earlier this month, the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine published a report showing that for each additional hour per day that a child watched television an average of one additional request was made for an advertised product. The effect of the commercials on children lasted up to 20 weeks.

Mobile phone mast recommendation being ignored

I am sending you along a published interview with John Cummins, chairperson of B.E.S.T. (Better Environment and Safer Telecommunications)which appeared in the IRISH EXAMINER on the same day as the public meeting on the same issue.

I attended the well organised three hour meeting. The room was filled to capacity and attendees during the Q & A session voiced their concern over health issues related to the placement and proliferation of masts.

John Cummings, chairperson, urged all present to try and get maximum supporters to attend a protest meeting on this issue at 11.00 am, on Saturday May 13. Location of protest: Toomevara, near Nenagh, Co. Tipperary. (It's on the main Limerick-Dublin road.) He said that it would send a very strong message if thousands turned up for this protest.

B.E.S.T. will have its website up and running in c. three weeks.

While talking with John Ryan (the Tipperary farmer whose health was badly affected by the mast he and his wife, Rosie, had on their farm) before the meeting, John made it clear to me that the mast on his farm was never damaged--as stated to be so in a newspaper report--and there was no criminal investigation into it being damaged. All that, he said, was just spin to make them look shady/evil characters. You have posted this article on your 25.03.2006 report.

1 Million Schweizer Franken für den Fotografen, dem es erstmalig gelingt, das "hochgefährliche" Vogelgrippe-Virus H5N1 elektronenmikroskopisch nachzuweisen

Fast ein Nobelpreis: Vogelgrippe-Nachweis soll dem Fotografen mit 1 Million Schweizer Franken honoriert werden!

Eine ungewöhnlich hohe Prämie winkt dem Forscher, dem es erstmalig gelingt, das "hochgefährliche" Vogelgrippe-Virus H5N1 elektronenmikroskopisch nachzuweisen.

In der Presse und in den Wissenschaftsredaktionen der Fernsehsender ist diese Agenturmeldung aus der Schweiz wie eine Bombe eingeschlagen, war man doch bisher davon ausgegangen, dass dieser Nachweis längst erbracht sei. Doch nun stellt sich heraus, dass nicht nur die in Angst gehaltene Bevölkerung und die in ihrer Existenz bedrohten Geflügelhalter, sondern gerade auch die Medien selbst auf einen Wissenschaftsbetrug nie gekannten Ausmaßes hereingefallen sind.

Einige der weltweit federführenden Forschungsinstitute, u. a. das Robert-Koch-Institut in Deutschland, mussten unter dem Druck der Aufdeckung dieses Schwindels inzwischen kleinlaut zugeben, mit einem Fotobeweis nicht dienen zu können. Die Virologen Karl Krafeld und Dr. Stefan Lanka, die diesen geradezu unfassbaren Wissenschaftsbetrug aufgedeckt haben ("Die Vogelgrippe", klein-klein-verlag, ISBN 3-937342-15-X) warnen vor der bevorstehenden Gefahr einer Impfpflicht in Deutschland, die auf Drängen der Pharmaindustrie und unter Mithilfe von allen guten Geistern verlassener "Gesundheitspolitiker" parlamentarisch durchgepaukt werden soll. Vorgesehen ist also, mit einem Impfstoff, den es noch gar nicht gibt, 80 Millionen Deutsche zweimal "durchzuimpfen" gegen eine Krankheit, die nicht einmal bei Hühnern nachgewiesen werden konnte geschweige denn eine Bedrohung für die Menschheit darstellt.

Die Virologen und Wissenschaftsautoren Krafeld und Lanka weisen insbesondere darauf hin, dass H5N1 auf Wunsch in jedem Huhn, in jeder Ente und in jedem menschlichen Körper "wissenschaftlich" nachgewiesen werden kann. Sie schreiben zum Vogelgrippe-Virus u.a. "Ich bin nicht isolierbar, weil ich nicht existiere!" Und sie schreiben weiter: "Isoliert die Lügner, dann ist die Angst (vor der Vogelgrippe) schnell vorbei!" Um dieser Zitterpartie ein Ende zu bereiten und verantwortungslosen Politikern wenigstens zu ermöglichen, das Gesicht zu wahren, wird der wissenschaftliche Nachweis eines hoffentlich doch vorhandenen H5N1-Virus immer dringender. In der Schweiz wurde daher beschlossen, die Belohnung für ein überzeugendes Foto eines H5N1-Virus noch einmal heraufzusetzen und zwar von 500 000 auf 1 Million Schweizer Franken.

Leicht wird ein derartiges Foto nicht zu beschaffen sein, denn auch mit den modernsten Elektronenmikroskopen ist es immer noch recht problematisch, Wunschträume gewissenloser "Virologen" der Pharmaindustrie und der "Experten" deutscher Forschungsinstitute in Erfüllung gehen zu lassen. Aber - das letzte Wort ist darüber noch nicht gefallen; und so hat der deutsche Gesundheitsminister Seehofer auf Anraten der Pharmaindustrie und der Massentierhalter "vorsorglich" beschlossen, die Stallpflicht für Federvieh auf unbestimmte Zeit zu verlängern!

The huge National Institutes of Health Womens' Health Initiative was halted more than a year early in 2002 because women who took synthetic hormones (Premarin, made from pregnant mares' urine, a conjugated estrogen and Prempro, a combination of Premarin and a synthetic progesterone also called progestin) were at increased risk of heart attack, stroke, breast and uterine cancer, mental decline and life threatening blood clots. There was no benefit to taking these drugs which are made by Wyeth.

Millions of women switched to Bio Identical Hormones (BIH) because they are natural, inexpensive and safe compounds which are easy on the body and work beautifully. Made for each woman's need by compounding pharmacies, they are also a threat to Wyeth's bottom line.

Using a Citizens Petition to the FDA, Wyeth is seeking to ban all natural hormones and end compounding. Natural health options to dangerous drugs are under significant attack.

Fitzgerald to Seek Indictment of Rove

Despite vehement denials by his attorney who said this week that Karl Rove is neither a "target" nor in danger of being indicted in the CIA leak case, the special counsel leading the investigation has already written up charges against Rove, and a grand jury is expected to vote on whether to indict the Deputy White House Chief of Staff sometime next week, sources knowledgeable about the probe said Friday afternoon.


This alert is brought to you by the activism of Charles W. Sanders, candidate for U.S House from the 3rd district of Ohio.



Passage of the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the National voting Rights Act of 1993 collectively have strengthened the voting rights of African Americans, and other minority voters over the last century.

The process of pre-clearance found in section '5' of the Voting Rights Act beckons for continued attention and ultimate re-validation before 2007. Apparently, some elements in both Houses of Congress don't see the need to promote inclusion but would prefer voter supression. Reference Florida in 2000, and Ohio in 2004.

The skewed results of these recent elections were accomplished in large part by purging the participation of people anticipated to vote the "wrong" way. Even if we were to cure all other problems in counting AFTER the vote, this cannot fix the purging of our base before they even get to the polls. It is therefore critically important that we all speak out now to not only renew the Voting Rights Act, but to also strengthen it in light of recent and more sophisticated abuses.


But more than that, Charles Sanders is running as many radio spots in his home district as he can, calling on all his constituents to raise their own voices, and to submit his action page to do so. And he needs your help in this, the last week of his primary campaign, to reach out to as many people as possible in this way, to help build the consensus that impeachment is long overdue.

When we talk about taking back Congress, that is what we will have to do, TAKE IT. Nobody is going give us anything we won't give to ourselves. And when we donate to a candidate like Charles W. Sanders who is showing just the kind of leadership we need, we can make an example of him, and show other candidates that if they show real backbone they will get the support of the people too.



Nobody can predict how the primary election in the Ohio 3rd district will turn out this coming Tuesday. But every dollar we put into getting direct call to action radio spots on the air will increase the momentum for positive change. It's time to stop complaining about the representatives we have, and show how SERIOUS we are about replacing them with those who are standing up for us. When you donate to Charles, you're not just promoting a particular candidate, you are investing in real change, because he is using that money to encourage OTHER people to speak out as well.

We NEED candidates like Charles Sanders to champion the issues that are important to us. Charles needs your help to get his message out, to get YOUR message out, and has now just one more week before his primary to do so. Please make a contribution today to send Charles to Congress and fight for you on the issues you care about.

How many times have you felt helpless and wished you could influence the votes of representatives in other districts to prevail on a critical vote in Congress, but thought you could not do so effectively because you were not one of their own constituents? How much more would you support Charles if you do live in his district?

Here we have a courageous candidate who will fight for all the issues you care about, if only he is given the chance to make the run. Please donate whatever you can to help Charles get on the radio to recruit and mobilize even more people to speak out so we can have a real impact on these policy decisions now and for the future. What would you give to have a whole legislature of people like Charles Sanders? Won't you give him your support now to make that a reality?

We have been valiantly speaking out with action alerts based on one fundamental premise --- either our representatives in Congress would listen to and heed the voices of their people --- or else we would work to replace them in the next election.

The time for the replacement action is NOW.



If each of us will just contribute what we can, to the most worthy candidates we can find, it will make a real difference in the kind of Congress we will all have to deal with in 2007. Most importantly, strong showings NOW by candidates who DO have a backbone, and WILL stand up and fight, can send a powerful message to the rest that they better start shaping up or we will ship them out too. Make your donation today and it will have cascading positive effects in many other races for months to come.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

A nationwide network of nonprofit organizations, including the Organic Consumers Association, are mobilizing to stop Congress from passing a law that would enable telecommunications giants to control the flow of traffic on the internet. Companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast are pressuring Congress to pass the "Telecom Reform Bill" that would allow them to restrict or slow down your access to certain websites on the internet. As an example, last year, Canada's version of AT&T -- Telus -- blocked their internet customers from visiting a web site sympathetic to workers with whom Telus was negotiating. This controversial bill would create a similar situation in the U.S. whereby telephone and cable companies would have increased power to control how well (or poorly) specific websites, including those operated by nonprofit organizations, would function on your computer. The current construction of the internet allows everyone to compete on a level playing field. This is the reason that the internet is a force for economic innovation, civic participation and free speech. If the public doesn't speak up now, Congress will hand over control of the internet to these telecommunications monopolies.

Europäische Energiepolitik von der Industrie dominiert

Energiepolitik ist ein brennendes Thema, in der EU ebenso wie in Deutschland. Während Bundeskanzlerin Merkel hier im April zum Energiegipfel einlud, richtete die Europäische Kommission Ende Februar gleich eine neue Kommission ein, die High Level Group on Competitiveness, Energy and the Environment. Die Kommission wird von der Industrie dominiert und stösst im Europaparlament auf heftige Kritik.

Debatte über Lobbyismus in der EU geht weiter

Am kommenden Mittwoch, den 3. Mai, stellt die EU-Kommission das Grünbuch zur “European Transparency Initiative” (ETI) vor. Im Rahmen der ETI findet seit einem Jahr eine intensive Debatte über mehr Transparenz- und Ethikregeln für Lobbyisten in Brüssel statt. Das Grünbuch wird sich voraussichtlich eine freiwillige Registrierung der Lobbyisten vorschlagen. Wie detailliert diese ihre Finanzquellen offenlegen sollen, wird offen bleiben. Damit bliebe die EU-Kommission hinter den Möglichkeiten und Notwendigkeiten zurück.

"Sachalin II": Kritik an größtem Öl- und Gasförderprojekt der Welt


Nach Auffassung der Umweltschutzorganisation WWF will der Ölkonzern Shell das größte Öl- und Gasförderprojekt der Welt vor der Insel Sachalin im russischen Fernen Osten ohne ausreichende Sicherheitsmaßnahmen betreiben. Eine neue Studie des Verbandes zeige, "dass es keine Mittel gibt, einen Ölunfall während der langen Wintermonate wirksam zu bekämpfen". Das Öl- und Gasförderprojekt "Sachalin II" verlaufe unmittelbar durch die Nahrungsgründe der vom Aussterben bedrohten Westpazifischen Grauwale. "Shell riskiert das Ende der Grauwale und der einmaligen Küstennatur im Ochotskischen Meer", meint Volker Homes vom WWF. Die Naturschützer fordern deshalb die in London ansässige die Europäische Bank für Wiederaufbau und Entwicklung (EBWE) auf, einen von Shell angeforderten Kredit für den Weiterbau von "Sachalin II" abzulehnen.

Bei jedem vierten Jugendlichen deutet sich Schwerhörigkeit an

In der Albert-Schweitzer-Realschule wurden jetzt die Infotafeln des VerbraucherService Bayern im Katholischen Deutschen Frauenbund erstmals ausgestellt. Mit Hilfe von Comics sollen Jugendliche für Gesundheitsrisiken sensibilisiert und zum vernünftigen Umgang mit Risiken angeregt werden. Ergänzend zu den Infotafeln werden Faltblätter angeboten, die einfach umzusetzende Tipps enthalten, wie gesundheitliche Belastungen durch Lärm, UV-Licht und elektromagnetische Strahlung reduziert werden können. Helgit Kadlez, Leiterin der Beratungsstelle Regensburg, stellte dabei fest, dass gerade Lärm, UV-Strahlen und Elektrosmog für junge Menschen Gesundheitsrisiken darstellen. Stefanie Ertl, Umweltberaterin beim Verbraucherservice, erinnerte daran, dass viele Erkrankungen langsam und unbemerkt entstehen, weshalb frühe Aufklärung von besonderer Bedeutung sei. Bereits jeder vierte Jugendliche leidet an einer beginnenden Schwerhörigkeit. Freizeitlärm ist eine der Hauptursachen für Hörschädigungen. Da Ohren immer auf Empfang sind, brauchen sie besonderen Schutz vor Lärm.
