How the Wealthy Use the Government to Stay Rich and Get Richer

In his new book, "The Conservative Nanny State: How the Wealthy Use the Government to Stay Rich and Get Richer," well-known economist Dean Baker debunks the myth that conservatives favor the market over government intervention. The book examines a variety of "nanny state" policies that make the rich richer while leaving most Americans worse off. Baker offers the book as a free download: //www.conservativenannystate.org/cnswebbook.pdf

The rich get richer

The American Conservative
by James Kurth

In 1914, Henry Ford paid his factory workers $5 a day, twice the going rate, with the aim of creating a broad middle class able to buy the cars they were building. Today, that project isn't faring so well: The Economist reports that in the U.S. 'the gap between rich and poor is bigger than in any other advanced country.' And it's growing. According to the Congressional Budget Office, from 1979 to 2001, the after-tax income of the top 1 percent of U.S. households soared 139 percent, while the income of the middle fifth rose only 17 percent and the income of the poorest fifth climbed just 9 percent. Last year American CEOs earned 262 times the average wage of their workers -- up tenfold from 1970. This widening gap can be seen virtually everywhere we look -- in America; within other countries, even those hitherto distinguished by a high degree of equality (in particular, Japan, South Korea, and China); and between rich and poor countries in the world at large...

D for Debacle

"Today is the last day to sign up for Medicare Part D, the prescription drug benefit. It appears that millions of Americans, confused by the array of competing plans or simply unaware of the cutoff date, will miss the deadline," Paul Krugman writes. "This will leave them without drug coverage for the rest of the year, and subject to financial penalties for the rest of their lives."

Constant Surveillance: Who's a Target?

Revelations this week that the National Security Agency may have amassed the largest phone call database in the world with the aid of US telecom companies prompted New America Media writer, Roberto Lovato, to examine his own FBI files and the implications of aggressive US surveillance.

Hayden Must Explain Involvement in Domestic Spying

The NSA, which Hayden headed from 1999 to 2005, began intercepting telephone calls and e-mails without warrants between people in the United States and other countries after the September 11 attacks. It also inadvertently intercepted some domestic traffic, The New York Times reported last year.

NSA Thwarts Whistleblower

Russell Tice worked for the National Security Agency as an intelligence analyst and capabilities officer. He has intimate knowledge of the innermost workings of the intelligence community, and wants to tell Congress about an NSA program that, he says, is unconstitutional and possibly criminal. He is gagged, however, by the non-disclosure agreement he signed before becoming privy to top-secret government activities.

Will Major Media Stop Hiding Electronic Election Fraud?

The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post finally ran coverage of problems with electronic voting machines this week. The scandals surrounding computer fraud and financial illegalities at Diebold and other electronic voting machine companies have become too big and blatant for even the bought, docile, mainstream media to ignore. With 99% of Fox viewers mistakenly believing that the election was "legitimate," only the constant propaganda of Rupert Murdoch's disinformation campaign at Fox stands in the way of a majority of Americans coming to grips with the facts that two consecutive elections have been stolen.

Humpty-Dumpty Republicans

William Rivers Pitt writes on Bush's upcoming speech tonight: "The main reason for the delivery of this speech, and for the deployment of Guard troops to the Rio Grande, has to do with GOP inside baseball and the looming midterm elections. The powerful Republican coalition between movement conservatives and business conservatives has shown significant signs of fraying lately, and the issue of immigration is at the heart of the matter."

Der schnelle Wechsel in die Industrie ist "eine Form der nachgelagerten Bestechung"

"Nachgelagerte Bestechung": Bundestag debattierte Wechsel von Regierungsmitgliedern in die Privatwirtschaft (15.05.06)

Angesichts des Engagements ehemaliger Regierungsmitglieder in Aufsichtsräten großer Unternehmen fordert die Opposition einen Verhaltenskodex für ausgeschiedene Minister. Der schnelle Wechsel in die Industrie sei "eine Form der nachgelagerten Bestechung", sagte Linksfraktionsvize Gesine Lötzsch am vergangenen Donnerstag in der Bundestagsdebatte zu den entsprechenden Anträgen von FDP, Linksfraktion und Grünen. Das Motto "Erst regieren, dann kassieren" dürfe nicht weiter Schule machen. Hintergrund ist unter anderem die Übernahme des Aufsichtsratsvorsitzes beim Konsortium zum Bau der Ostsee-Pipeline durch Alt-Kanzler Gerhard Schröder (SPD). Noch zum Ende seiner Amtszeit wurde von der Bundesregierung über eine Kreditbürgschaft für Gasprom entschieden. Ein anderes Beispiel war der Wechsel von Finanzstaatssekretär Cajo Koch-Weser als Vice Chairman zur Deutschen Bank. Vorher war er in der Bundesregierung für die Bankenaufsicht zuständig. Er war an der Abwicklung eines Schuldende als beteiligt, in den auch die Deutsche Bank involviert war.

Final Appeal: Wisconsin Death Penalty Vote Tomorrow!

National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty

Tomorrow the Wisconsin Senate is expected to vote whether to place the issue of the death penalty on the November election ballot.

The National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty -- and many of our allied groups -- have been working hard to try to defeat this proposed referendum.

If you live in Wisconsin we urge you to click here to take action:

CLICK HERE TO TAKE ACTION!!!!!!!!!!
//www.democracyinaction.org/dia/organizationsORG/ncadp/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=3666

Today, we are proud to distribute this eve-of-vote appeal from our state affiliate, the Wisconsin Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty:


Dear Friends;

Many thanks from the Wisconsin Coalition Against the Death Penalty, for your efforts to oppose SJR-5, which would put an advisory referendum on the ballot in November regarding the death penalty.

The vote is Tuesday, May 16, and you may watch and hear it live on your computer, by going to:

//www.legis.state.wi.us/insession/senate/index.htm

If you have not yet called your own state senator on this issue, please do so NOW.

This is a most excellent 30 page summary of the history of legislation like this in Wisconsin, which you may want to read for background:

//www.legis.state.wi.us/lrb/pubs/ib/95ib1.pdf

Our own talking points for those senators who voted for the referendum, are personally opposed to the death penalty, but are feeling pressure, are to begin by saying: "We respect that reasonable people may disagree on the issue of capitol punishment." Then go on to say:

1. You are on record as supporting an advisory referendum in September, when it would be the ONLY referendum question on the ballot. We think that if we are to have one, it should be in September, when voters could focus on the question and there could be a good public debate, but not in November, when there cannot be such a debate.

2. The Assembly changed the date of the vote to November, when it will be competing with the constitutional amendment question, about which there will be great public debate. That vote does have legally binding effect; the death penalty question does not. Voters will be confused by putting these different kinds of questions on the same ballot. The debate about the death penalty will be drowned out by the debate on the constitutional amendment.

And, it is poor public policy to put such different questions, with such different legal effects, on the same ballot.

3. You can say that you support a referendum and want it to be "clean"; that is, the only such public policy question on the ballot.

4. If you vote to amend the resolution back to the original September referendum date, the Assembly will be able to reconsider it during one of the veto sessions, as they can easily add an extraordinary session for that day. So you are NOT voting to kill, just standing on your position that this should occur in September, as you originally voted. Please vote to amend, and if the amendment fails, please vote NO on having the referendum in November.

Again, thank you for whatever you can do, have done, and will do in the future.

Stop Big Brother Surveillance: Call Congress

Domestic Surveillance: National Security Agency Warrantless Wiretapping

------- Forwarded message follows -------
Date sent: Mon, 15 May 2006 11:28:25 -0400 (EDT)
From: Bill of Rights Defense Committee bordc@mail.democracyinaction.org
Subject: Alert: Wed. 5/17, Stop Big Brother Surveillance -- Call Congress

Please forward this message widely, and call your Senators and Representative (just three quick phone calls) on Wednesday, May 17!

Wednesday, May 17, National Call-in to Congress on NSA Warrantless Surveillance

Last December, we learned that the President had broken the law by allowing the National Security Agency to spy on Americans' phone calls.

On Thursday, 5/11, USA Today published a major cover story revealing a National Security Agency (NSA) database of millions of innocent Americans' domestic phone call records, indicating who, when and where we are calling.

//www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2006-05-10-nsa_x.htm.

This database has nothing to do with catching suspected terrorists: It is documenting all our associations in the largest database in history-with a goal of including "every call ever made" within the nation's borders. This program is truly beyond "Big Brother"!

Take Action Now

It's time for the American people to tell Congress in a clear, loud voice that we've had enough!

Join the Bill of Rights Defense Committee and thousands of other Americans by calling Congress on Wednesday, May 17 to demand they investigate this government intrusion immediately. The BORDC, the ACLU, People For the American Way, and other organizations
(see below) have declared the week of May 15 "National Call-in to Congress Week" and are asking their constituents to call their members of Congress on a specific day. Let's keep those phones ringing in the Congressional halls all week long!

The Message

Please phone each of your Senators, and your Representative. Urge them NOT to consider draft legislation that would give the executive branch new surveillance powers that are immune to oversight by the courts and Congress.

Call for a full, public investigation of the NSA surveillance program.

Call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 (24 hours) and ask the operator to connect you. Or use the BORDC call-in page //www.bordc.org/callin_060517.php to find your legislators' phone numbers and to let us know how your calls went.

Additional sample talking points: Here are a few suggestions. Choose one or two:

The President has broken the law. He must stop warrantless eavesdropping and collecting records on all our phone calls and come clean with the American people about any further secret powers he claims as Commander-in-Chief.

The administration's claim that it must break the law to protect us from al-Qaeda are just plain false: any communications specifically targeting an al-Qaeda member outside the U.S. doesn't even need a warrant, and FISA judges are ready and waiting to issue warrants to wiretap any suspected al-Qaeda in the U.S.-- ven if those calls include U.S. citizens or residents.

Overburdening the FBI with thousands of false leads makes us less safe because it leaves them less time and fewer resources to find the real terrorists.

How can Congress even consider passing legislation to make these illegal programs legal, when it can't even find out what they entail? It must investigate. This is no time for new legislation!

What's needed is an immediate, full and unrestricted public investigation into the NSA spying program, including a probe into the massive database collecting Americans' phone calls.

The idea that the database of all our calls is permissible as long as it doesn't contain names and addresses is ludicrous. By linking the database of phone calls with all the other government data mining operations, the government can literally follow our every move, every contact, and every transaction. It's "Big Brother" run amok!

Congress needs to pass whistleblower protections for government employees and safeguards for journalists who provide information to the American public about illegal government acts.

The Fourth Amendment is clear. Electronic surveillance of this sort requires a warrant. A warrant allows a judge to serve as a check against executive abuse of power. That check keeps our government honest -- preventing one branch of government from mischief and errors.

Organizations supporting the call-in day (partial list) include the Alliance for Justice, American-Arab Anti- Discrimination Committee, American Civil Liberties Union, Bill of Rights Defense Committee, Council on American-Islamic Relations, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Electronic Privacy Information Center, First Amendment Foundation, Friends Committee on National Legislation, Liberty Coalition, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, National Coalition Against Repressive Legislation, National Lawyers Guild, Patriots to Restore Checks and Balances, People For the American Way, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, and United For Peace and Justice.

Stop Offshore Drilling Before It’s Too Late – Vote This Week

In the next few days, the House of Representatives will decide whether or not to expose our beautiful coasts and marine wildlife to the perils of offshore drilling when they vote on the Interior and Environment Appropriations bill.

Click here to urge your representative to vote to protect our coasts, wildlife, and environment before it’s too late! //ga3.org/campaign/coastaldrilling_amendments

Expanding offshore drilling is a short-sighted policy that would industrialize our coastline, threaten marine mammals, and threaten coastal communities and economies. Offshore drilling would do nothing to ease our energy crunch or lower prices at the pump. Any new natural gas that was discovered wouldn’t come on line for at least SEVEN years! We can’t drill our way out of this problem.

We need REAL energy solutions, not more drilling and giveaways to ExxonMobil. We consume 25% of the world's oil, yet we sit on just 3% of world reserves. The US can never drill our way to energy independence. Rather than offering up our last special places for more drilling, we need to focus on real energy solutions like efficiency, renewable energy and conservation.

Click here to ask your representative to support an amendment to protect our coasts and the manatees, sea turtles, dolphins and whales that call them home by upholding the 25-year ban on drilling in the Outer Continental Shelf that has protected our coasts up until now.
//ga3.org/campaign/coastaldrilling_amendments

In addition to the amendment banning offshore drilling, there are a number of other important things on the table for this week’s vote on the Appropriations bill, including good amendments to protect clean water, preserve the Tongass National Forest in Alaska, and fight global warming.

We’d like to get your help securing your representative’s support for these pro-environment efforts next week, as well. You can do it all in one fell swoop by clicking on the link below.

Click here to urge your representative to help ensure that the environment is protected when he or she votes on the Appropriations bill later this week.
//ga3.org/campaign/coastaldrilling_amendments

Please spread the word to your friends and family and ask them to join you in contacting their representatives, too.

Thank you for your help,

Umfassender Lauschangriff auf US-Bürger

„Das umstrittene geheime Lauschprogramm der NSA ist weit umfassender, als bislang angenommen, und speichert die Verbindungsdaten fast der gesamten Inlandskommunikation. Vermutlich war es kein kluger Schachzug von US-Präsident Bush, Michael Hayden als Nachfolger von Porter Goss zum Direktor der CIA zu machen. Hayden, Stellvertreter des nationalen Geheimdienstdirektors John Negroponte und ehemaliger Direktor der NSA, hatte das Ende 2005 bekannt gewordene, heimlich organisierte Lauschprogramm auf US-Bürger unter Umgehung des Kongresses und der gesetzlichen Bestimmungen, durchgeführt. Das aber fanden auch republikanische Abgeordneten nicht in Ordnung…“ Artikel von Florian Rötzer auf telepolis vom 11.05.2006 //www.heise.de/tp/r4/artikel/22/22650/1.html

"Stasi-Methoden": "Bespitzelungsaffäre kommt im Osten verheerend an" (15.05.06)

Die Bespitzelungsaffäre von Journalisten durch den Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) wird nach Ansicht von FDP-Präsidiumsmitglied Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberg vor allem in Ostdeutschland zu einer tiefen Enttäuschung über die Demokratie führen. Was der BND mit seiner Schnüffelei gegenüber Journalisten praktiziert habe, sei nichts anderes als "Stasi-Methoden", sagte Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger der Chemnitzer "Freien Presse". Das komme gerade in den neuen Ländern "verheerend" an. BND sei es wie dem früheren Ministerium für Staatssicherheit um ein möglichst umfangreiches Netz von Kontrolle und Überwachung von unliebsamen Personen und Kritikern gegangen. Dass solche Methoden, die bislang einer Diktatur zugerechnet worden seien, auch in einem demokratischen Rechtsstaat möglich seien und jegliche Kontrollen versagten, "muss besonders die Menschen im Osten zutiefst verunsichern".

Rechtsstaat muss Pressefreiheit schützen

#Die Linkspartei.PDS: Pressemitteilungen

16. Mai 2006

Zur Affäre um die Bespitzelung von Journalisten durch den Bundesnachrichtendienst erklärt die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Katina Schubert:

Die jüngste Affäre des BND macht erneut die schwierige parlamentarische Kontrolle von Geheimdiensten deutlich. Der BDN als Auslandsgeheimdienst hat im Inland nichts zu suchen. Mit seinen Aktivitäten hat er jeden rechtsstaatlichen Rahmen überschritten. Die Pressefreiheit ist ein hohes Gut, der Rechtsstaat ist gefordert, sie zu schützen. Die Durchsuchung der Cicero-Redaktionsräume im September
2005 und die Beschlagnahme von Redaktionsmaterial war ein erstes Alarmsignal. Die Linkspartei.PDS fordert eine umfassende öffentliche Aufklärung der Vorwürfe, um derartigen Machenschaften konsequent einen Riegel vorzuschieben. Darüber hinaus ist es an der Zeit, die Frage nach dem Sinn von Geheimdiensten neu zu stellen, bevor der erfolgreiche Kinofilm Das Leben der Anderen möglicherweise ungewollt eine Fortsetzung findet.

"Stasi-Methoden": Journalist Barth erwägt Klage gegen Bundesnachrichtendienst (16.05.06)

Der stellvertretende Chefredakteur und Lokalchef des "Hamburger Abendblatt", Karl-Günther Barth, wirft dem Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) in der Affäre um die Bespitzelung von Journalisten "Stasi-Methoden" vor. Dies müsse politische und rechtliche Konsequenzen haben, forderte Barth, der selbst zu den betroffenen Journalisten gehört, am Dienstag im Deutschlandfunk. "Mit einer Entschuldigung ist das nicht getan", betonte er. Er selbst wolle jetzt seine Akten einsehen und überlege, "ob ich die Kameraden verklage". Barth hatte nach eigener Aussage am Freitag von einem Kollegen vom "Spiegel" erfahren, dass auch er im Visier des BND gewesen sei. "Ich war fassungslos", betonte er. Er habe als "Stern"-Autor über die Elf-Aquitaine-Affäre berichtet sowie über Uranschmuggel und Missstände im BND geschrieben. Die "Berliner Zeitung" veröffentlichte - unter Berufung auf BND-Mitarbeiter - inzwischen einen Artikel, der nahelegt, dass es keine umfassende Überwachung von Medien gegeben hat.

Krieg ist keine Lösung

Attac, Campact, DFG-VK, IPPNW und das Netzwerk Friedenskooperative haben am vergangenen Freitag eine gemeinsame Kampagne gegen eine weitere Eskalation des Konflikts um das iranische Atomwaffenprogramm gestartet. Eine erste Online-Aktion richtet sich an die Staaten, die derzeit über den Wortlaut einer Resolution des UN-Sicherheitsrats verhandeln:

* E-Mail-Aktion: "Kein Irankrieg!" - Fordern Sie Vernunft! Der Streit um das iranische Atomprogramm spitzt sich weiter zu. Derzeit ringen Deutschland und die 5 ständigen Mitglieder des UN-Sicherheitsrates um einen Resolutionsentwurf, der die Verurteilung Irans nach Kapitel VII der UN-Charta als "Gefährdung des Weltfriedens" vorsieht. Wie beim Irak-Krieg könnte dies als Legitimation für einen militärischen Alleingang dienen. Eine Atombombe in den Händen des Iran ist nicht akzeptabel. Aber ein militärisches Eingreifen kann sie nicht verhindern und ließe die Situation im Nahen Osten völlig aus den Fugen geraten.

In one sense, it is difficult to understand how the Bush administration has been able to embrace such radical theories of executive power, and to engage in such recognizably un-American conduct -- first in the shadows and now quite openly -- without prompting a far more intense backlash from the country than we have seen. That is because the Bush administration has in its arsenal one very potent weapon -- and one weapon only -- which it has repeatedly used: fear. ... For a different vision of our nation, we need only look to the founders, who embodied courage and resolve. Most of them were wealthy and educated, and enjoyed the privileges of a gentrified upbringing in the British Empire. But mere comfort and safety were not enough for them. What they lacked were the basic liberties that have now come to define America and that we now take for granted.

What Fourth Amendment?

CounterPunch
by Dave Lindorff

Clearly, the Bush administration decided to implement Admiral John Poindexter's bold idea of a Total Information Awareness program, even after Congress and the public broadly denounced the idea when it was first exposed back in 2002. Supposedly killed back then, the idea of monitoring everyone all the time was just too tempting to this control-freak administration, so they just shifted the plan out of the Pentagon and handed it to the NSA...

Groundhog day in Iraq

AlterNet
by Joshua Holland

05/15/06

As the architects of the Iraq war cast about for someone to blame for their debacle, they've turned their sights inward -- to the U.S. public. A lack of fortitude among the American people is to blame; only the folks back home can defeat our awe-inspiring military. Others, despairing of the Bush administration's 'soft approach' to the Iraq insurgency -- and casting hungry eyes toward Tehran -- have adopted a feverish, almost genocidal view of the war. If only we had the stomach to bring more firepower to bear on the Iraqi people, they say, 'victory' would be assured. In both formulations, the media is ultimately at fault for poisoning Americans' view of the war and sapping our national strength. But the war's advocates have no one to blame but themselves; we are in Iraq because of their delusion that raw military power can solve even the most complex transnational issues...

The Big Brother on Capitol Hill

National Review

05/12/06

Getting elected to Congress is hard work. It is rivaled only by every incumbent's dearest preoccupation: remaining in congress. It takes untold hours of dedicated labor by highly motivated staffs and party organizations. It takes the expertise of outside experts. It takes meticulous research into the predilections of likely voters. And, most of all, it takes money. Lots of money. In modern American politics, that requires a fair amount of data mining -- the very same bane of our existence that currently has the usual suspects in Congress posturing about whether President Bush should merely be impeached or drawn-and-quartered at high noon...

A good, yet misguided, people

Most Americans are optimistic, friendly, creative, productive, fair-minded, tolerant and generous in supporting things in which they believe. When you get to know them on a one-to-one basis, they're great people. If you're perceptive you’ll even find that most people (taken as individuals) around the world could be described in the very same way. Humans are more alike than different and human nature is timeless and virtually identical in all people. The thing that constantly surprises me is how such good people can tolerate (and often even advocate) such lousy and counter-productive methods for dealing with others.

But it should scare the living daylights out of everybody, even if you're willing to permit the government certain leeways to conduct the war on terrorism.

Congress may object, but it isn't up to them -- it's up to 'the decider,' as Dubya has recently begun referring to Himself. Instead of a president, we now have a decider in chief, who combines the qualities of a chief executive, a military chieftain, and a king.

New York Daily News

05/14/06

The federal government's massive grab of nearly all the nation's phone records was just a small part of a vast array of official 'data mining' projects whose legality has come into question. In two reports since 2004, the Government Accountability Office said 52 of the 128 government agencies surveyed had either carried out or planned such projects -- resulting in 199 separate efforts to collect information. Five of the agencies -- including the FBI, State Department and Internal Revenue Service -- failed to comply with federal privacy and communications safeguards in their efforts to track terrorists and catch criminals, the GAO said.The failures 'increased the risk that personal information could be improperly exposed or altered,' the GAO reports said of the searches for patterns, trends and relationships in huge databases. The survey by the GAO, the investigative arm of Congress, did not include the National Security Agency's collection of hundreds of millions of phone records going back nearly five years...

Kirchenprotest in Bruchköbel

HLV INFO 61/AT

15-05-2006


Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

anlässlich der am 14. Mai 2006 (Muttertag) durchgeführten Visitation des Bischofs der Evangelischen Landeskirche Kurhessen-Waldeck (EKKW) Herrn Dr. Martin Hein in Bruchköbel, wurden die vor Jahren mit Billigung der EKKW vollzogenen Installationen der Mobilfunksendeanlagen in den Kirchtürmen der Evangelischen Kirchen in Bruchköbel, Brk-Roßdorf und Hanau-Mittlebuchen von den bekannten BI’s erneut massiv kritisiert.

Siehe hierzu nachfolgende PM, Offener Brief an Herrn Bischof Dr. Martin Hein sowie in der Anlage 1 Foto der Demo.

Alfred Tittmann
c/o ImoWoB e.V.



PM zur Aktion offener Brief an den Bischof am 14. Mai 2006:

(Bruchköbel) Etwa 50 Mitglieder der Bürgerinitiativen für mobilfunksenderfreie Wohngebiete in Bruchköbel und Mittelbuchen hatten sich am Muttertag um die Jakobuskirche versammelt, um beim Besuch des Bischofs der Evangelischen Kirche von Kurhessen-Waldeck (EKKW), Dr. Martin Hein, die weiterhin in den Türmen der evangelischen Kirchen in Bruchköbel, Roßdorf und Mittelbuchen strahlenden Mobilfunksendeanlagen in Erinnerung zu rufen. In einem offenen Brief, der den Kirchenbesuchern ausgehändigt wurde, ist an die Mitverantwortung des Bischofs für diese Belastung und deren Folgen, wie etwa zahlreiche Kirchenaustritte, appelliert worden. Das Gefährdungspotential werde offenbar negiert, der Zustand tatenlos hingenommen. Gegen dieses im offenen Brief als unchristlich beurteilte Verhalten wurde aufs schärfste protestiert. Bischof Hein wird darin aufgefordert, der Beteiligung der Kirche an diesem "Freilandversuch" entgegenzutreten, damit die Anlagen endlich gekündigt und abgeschaltet werden. Die sich mehrenden Warnungen der Wissenschaft vor gesundheitlicher Gefährdung durch Mobilfunkstrahlung würden dringend Prävention und Umkehr erfordern.

Eine Gottesdienstbesucherin kritisierte vor der Kirche, dass auch Kinder an der Demonstration beteiligt waren. Kinder seien durch die Strahlung besonders gefährdet, entgegneten BI-Mitglieder. Einzelne Kirchenbesucher waren derart verärgert über die erneute Kritik an den Mobilfunksendern in den drei Kirchtürmen, dass sie den Brief der BI vor den Augen der Verteilenden demonstrativ ungelesen in den Müll beförderten. Unter Berufung auf das Hausrecht veranlassten Kirchenvorstandsmitglieder die Verteilenden, das Grundstück zu verlassen. Ein Pfarrer aus Ostheim führte die damalige "Blauäugigkeit" der Kirchenverantwortlichen bei der Vertragsunterzeichnung mit den Betreiberfirmen an. Als er sagte, nun komme man nicht mehr davon los, wurde er von einem BI-Mitglied darauf hingewiesen, dass die Kirchenvorstände bisher keinen ernsthaften Versuch unternommen haben, die 10 bis 20 Jahre (für die Jakobuskirche noch bis Ende 2018!) laufenden Verträge zu kündigen. Der Bischof habe beim Überreichen des Schreibens geäußert, er sei davon ausgegangen, das "die Sache ausgeräumt" wäre.

Offener Brief


Herrn

Bischof Dr. Martin Hein
Evangelische Landeskirche Kassel
Wilhelmshöher Allee 330
34131 Kassel

14. Mai 2006


Sehr geehrter Herr Dr. Hein,

willkommen in Bruchköbel! Mit Ihrem heutigen Besuch beehren Sie die strahlende Jakobuskirche; strahlend im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes, nämlich durch den vor 7 Jahren klammheimlich installierten Mobilfunksender. Diese "okkulte Belastung" trifft, wie Ihnen bekannt ist, auch für die evangelischen Kirchen in Rossdorf und Mittelbuchen zu. Mit Billigung durch die EKKW und der vor 7 Jahren verantwortlichen Pfarrer und KV-Mitglieder werden Menschen im Umfeld der Kirchensenderanlagen Tag und Nacht zwangsbestrahlt. Sie sind als Bischof u.a. auch dafür mitverantwortlich, dass bereits zahlreiche Menschen aus Protest aus der Kirche ausgetreten sind - dass diesen Menschen ihre kirchliche Heimat genommen wurde.

Zahlreiche Studien, deren Publikation vielfach verzögert oder unterschlagen wird, belegen eindeutig das Gefährdungspotential. Vielfältige schwerwiegende Erkrankungen bis hin zu Leukämie haben nachweisbar im Umfeld solcher Anlagen dramatisch zugenommen und zeigen, dass die weithin von den finanziellen Nutznießern dieser Anlagen mit entsprechendem Nachdruck kolportierte Behauptung, es sei nichts bewiesen usw., unter die schändlichsten, menschenverachtendsten Irreführungsversuche unserer Zeit einzuordnen ist. Demgegenüber fordern seriöse Wissenschaftler und Ärzte dringend zu Prävention und zur Umkehr (Metanoia!) auf.

Wir klagen an, dass Sie diese Gefahr offenbar negieren und mit dazu beigetragen haben, dass Gemeinden gespalten sind und aus Protest Kirchenaustritte erfolgten.

Warum lassen Sie diesen Zustand offenbar tatenlos andauern?

Wir protestieren nach wie vor gegen diesen zutiefst unchristlichen Vorgang und verurteilen dies aufs Schärfste!

Wir fordern Sie erneut dazu auf, der Beteiligung der Kirche am "Freilandversuch" am Menschen hier in Bruchköbel und Mittelbuchen entgegenzutreten. Wirken Sie auf die Verantwortlichen ein, damit die Anlagen gekündigt und abgeschaltet werden.

Iranische Ölbörse auf Euro-Basis startet

//www.energybulletin.net/15717.html

Nachdem die Ankündigung vielfach bereits als Gerücht abqualifiziert wurde, ist vor einer Woche die Lizenz für die euro-basierte Ölbörse auf der Insel Kish im persischen Golf von der iranischen Regierung erteilt worden. Der erwartete Effekt: der Sturz des US-Dollars macht nun den westlichen Finanzmärkten und Ökonomen schwer zu schaffen.

Ursprünglich war der Start der Ölbörse bereits für den Monat März angesetzt worden. Nach Mitteilung der iranischen Regierung soll sie nun in zwei Monaten ihren Betrieb aufnehmen. Die erwartete Konsequenz, dass mit einem Erdölangebot in Euro statt bisher ausschließlich in US-Dollar, war zwischenzeitlich viel diskutiert worden: durch den Wegfall der Deckung in Erdöl wurde ein Sturz der westlichen Leitwährung erwartet. Während bisher alle Länder für den Import von Erdöl Dollar beschaffen und bereithalten mussten und mit ihren Exporten in die USA deshalb das riesige Handelsdefizit dort immer weiter steigerten und dabei gleichzeitig die Leitwährung des Westens stützten, kippt nun diese Situation. Im Ergebnis ist anzunehmen, dass die Funktion der Leitwährung nun auf den Euro übergeht. Schwere Probleme kommen damit auf die USA zu: man wird zukünftig nicht mehr bequem, wie bisher, die immer teureren Öl- und Rohstoff-Importe ebenso wie chinesische Konsumgüter, deutsche BMW usw. mithilfe der eigenen Notenpresse finanzieren können, die zuletzt immer größere Mengen des zunehmend wertlosen Papiers ausgestoßen hatte.

Auf seiten der US-Handelspartner wiederum werden bereits heute die entgegengesetzten Probleme sichtbar: die exportorientierte Industrie gerät massiv unter Druck. Die Financial Times schreibt "Immer mehr Aktienstrategen bangen um die Wettbewerbsfähigkeit exportorientierter europäischer Unternehmen. " Die iranische Ölbörse wirft damit bereits ihre Schatten voraus. Allerdings ist dies Projekt inzwischen nicht mehr isoliert zu sehen: in den vergangenen Monaten schichteten bereits mehrere Zentralbanken ihre Reserven um und zogen sich aus dem Dollar zurück. Hinzu kam der im April bekannt gewordene Plan, nun auch für den Wirtschaftsraum der arabischen Ölförderstaaten sich aus dem Dollar zu lösen und den Dinar in Anlehnung an den Euro als eigene Gemeinschaftswährung zu etablieren. Beratung gab es für dies Projekt von Experten der europäischen Zentralbank. Im Übrigen hatte auch einer der wichtigsten Öllieferanten der USA, Venezuelas Präsident Chavez angekündigt, sich den Iranern anzuschließen, und Öl in Euro abzurechnen. Von verschiedener Seite war darüber spekuliert worden, dass durch einen amerikanischen Angriff auf den Iran die Bedrohung des Dollars verhindert werden sollte: auch Saddam Hussein hatte die Abrechnung des irakischen Öls auf Euro umgestellt, bevor die USA diese Unbotmäßigkeit durch die Besetzung des Landes zur Episode machten. Nachdem nun allerdings die Absetzbewegungen gegenüber der amerikanischen Leitwährung eine neue Breite angenommen haben, wird diese Entwicklung allein durch einen Angriff auf den Iran kaum zu stoppen sein.

International Criminal Court: The Missing Link

While there have been multiple conventions and treaties regarding international humanitarian law designed to protect combatants and noncombatants, the missing link has been an effective legal body to interpret and enforce international law, and to hold individuals criminally responsible for the most serious violations. Following World War II, the Nuremberg and Tokyo tribunals prosecuted Axis war criminals. Nuremberg established that individuals, as opposed to abstract entities such as a State, could be held accountable for war crimes. However, tribunals have been done on an ad hoc basis, giving the impression of selective prosecution and creating omissions in who has been brought to justice. For example, no one has been tried for the "killing fields" in Cambodia.

Recognizing this limitation, members of the international community worked for over 50 years to establish an International Criminal Court (ICC). The United Nations sponsored the 1998 Conference in Rome that established the framework for the ICC. It was up to individual countries to become signatories to the Rome Statute, thereby proclaiming agreement, and then to ratify the Statute, thus becoming a Party to the ICC. As part of this process, each ICC country develops its own implementing legislation. On April 11, 2002, the Court received the 60th ratification, the number necessary to trigger realization of the ICC.

The U.S. is not a member. George Bush refused to be judged by the ICC and refuses to have any member of the administration to come under it's jurisdiction. Is there any wonder why?

TELL OUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO CALL FOR IMPEACHMENT OF BUSH AND CHENEY NOW

ACTION PAGE: //www.usalone.com/coleman/pnum299.php

The FISA(Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) law is very clear in that the executive branch must get a warrant in order to spy on Americans on American soil. George W. Bush has repeatedly confessed to violating this law. Therefore, it is the duty of members of the House of Representatives to impeach Bush.

It really is that simple. We often hear the argument from Democrats that it is better to wait until after the November elections. Why??? There is no assurance that Democrats will take back the Congress in November.

In the meantime, each Democrat in Congress is collecting a salary. They are getting paid to serve us, and if they neglect to initiate impeachment now, then they are not doing their job. Our constitution is designed for checks and balances between the three branches and taxpayers are not paying them to sit on their hands.

ACTION PAGE: //www.usalone.com/coleman/pnum299.php

This alert is brought to you by the activism of Charles Coleman, candidate for U.S House from the 28th Congressional District of California. Fighting for the rights of all Americans is why Charles is running for Congress, and he's not waiting until the election to start fighting for Louisiana and the rest of America.

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 Coleman 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.

ACTBLUE DONATIONS: https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/entity/9340?refcode=tpen

We NEED candidates like Charles Coleman to champion the issues that are important to us. Charles needs your help to get his message out, to get YOUR message out, by putting on radio spots calling yet more people to action 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 to run ads 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 Coleman? 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.

ACTBLUE DONATIONS: https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/entity/9340?refcode=tpen

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.

TELL OUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO CALL FOR IMPEACHMENT OF BUSH AND CHENEY NOW

ACTION PAGE: //www.usalone.com/mccloskey/pnum300.php

There is a growing slate of progressive candidates all over the country now taking the strong stand that the people demand, calling for the immediate impeachment of Bush and Cheney before they can do any more harm to our national security and our economy. For example in California there are at least three progressive candidates in Los Angeles alone speaking out for impeachment now. Consider these words of Bob McCloskey, running for the U.S. Congress from the 29th district of California:

A President cannot commit a more serious crime against our democracy than lying to Congress and the American people to get them to support a military action or war. It is not just cowardly and abhorrent to fool others into giving their lives for a nonexistent threat, it is that the decision to go to war, in a democracy, must be made by the people and their representatives. Given that the consequences is death for tens of thousands of people and the diversion of billions of dollars to the war effort, the fraud cannot be tolerated. The President should be impeached for committing fraud.

On December 17, 2005, President Bush admitted he repeatedly authorized wire taps without obtaining a warrant. Thousands of calls were monitored and the information obtained widely circulated among Federal agencies. These warrantless wiretaps violate FISA, which requires court approval for national security wire taps. Violation of the FISA is a felony. Recent revelations regarding the warrantless monitoring of millions of emails and phone calls by the NSA under authorization from the President are further violations of FISA and the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. The President should be impeached for committing these felonies.

In addition, it is imperative that a full investigation be undertaken regarding President Bush's role in the systematic torture and abuse of detainees. Violating his oath of office, the Geneva Convention, and the War Crimes Act would constitute impeachable offenses.

Upon taking office, the President took an oath in which he swore to take care that the laws would be faithfully executed. He has been guilty of such gross incompetence or reckless indifference to his obligation to execute the laws faithfully as to call into question whether he takes his oath seriously or is capable of doing so. Our nation has no choice but to impeach the President.

Bundesweiter dezentraler Protesttag während der WM: "Wir schießen zurück! Erwerbslose, raus aus dem Abseits"

Die drei aufrufenden Organisationen (BAG-SHI, Tacheles und Labournet Germany) wollen mit diesem Aufruf die in diesem Land vorherrschende Lethargie durchbrechen. Es ist dringend nötig den Umstrukturierungsplänen und dem sozialen Kahlschlag der Regierung entschlossenen Widerstand entgegenzusetzen. Das ein solcher Widerstand auch erfolgreich sein kann haben die Proteste und Auseinandersetzungen in Frankreich gezeigt. Es geht mit diesem Vorschlag auch nicht darum hier „französische Verhältnisse” zu schaffen, sondern das die Betroffenen ihre Sache in die Hand nehmen. Die Lethargie überwinden und anfangen gegen die völlige Demontage des Sozialstaates, sozialer und demokratischer Rechte und gegen Niedriglohn und Lohndumping sich zu wehren. Widerstand ist nötig. Organisieren wir ihn jetzt und so, dass er Wirkung erzielt!

Tacheles – Online Redaktion Harald Thomé Zum gemeinsamen Aufruf:

Aktionen zur WM 2006 München

„Die WM 2006 hat ihren faden Beigeschmack durch nationale Identifikationsstiftung, den Ausbau des Überwachungsstaats und kapitalistische Vermarktung von Produkten großer Konzerne. Die Bullen nützen die Gelegenheit aus, um noch mehr Eingriffmöglichkeiten zu erhalten. Doch es zeigen sich auch Risse in diesem Riesenspektakel, wenn auch kleine. Von eben diesen aber handelt dieser Artikel: Von Aktionen gegen den Großkonzern Coca-Cola, einer inhaltlich sehr gelungenen Mobilisierung von linken Fußballfans und der Münchner Roten Hilfe am
