For His Eyes Only: Bush's Secret Crimes

"The Justice Department has finally taken decisive action in the mounting legal challenges to President Bush's domestic spying program," Michael Ratner writes. "But there's only one problem: It has acted to defend illegal spying, not stop it."

Putting reason back into emergency powers

Boston Globe
by Bruce Ackerman


As antiterrorism initiatives slowly leak to the public, a larger pattern emerges, revealing a deeper constitutional flaw. The problem is not so much what President Bush did immediately after Sept. 11, 2001, it is that our system has allowed these secret emergency measures to continue indefinitely, transforming our very understanding of normal government behavior. It is easy to second-guess the president's decisions in the weeks after the terrorist attack. But without 20-20 hindsight, many of them look reasonable. On Sept. 12, the security services didn't know what had hit them, and there was an imperative need to assure that the Sears Tower would not be next. Within this context, it was reasonable to tap phone lines and search bank records for hints of a disastrous second strike that would generate another wave of panic. But what was reasonable after a surprise attack has become a permanent state of affairs, without any effective review or control by Congress or the courts. The bureaucratic dynamics provoked by 9/11 are driving the government into a permanent state of emergency...

Supreme Court ruling troubles GOP senators

Baxter Bulletin


Two Republican senators said Sunday that Congress must rein in the Supreme Court ruling that international law applies to the Bush administration's conduct in the war on terror. Thursday's Supreme Court decision embracing Article 3 of the Geneva Accords in the military commission case of Osama bin Laden's former driver strikes at the heart of the White House's legal position in the war on al-Qaida. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the second-ranking GOP leader in the Senate, said the 5-3 court decision 'means that American servicemen potentially could be accused of war crimes'...

Supreme Court nixes Gitmo kangaroo "courts"

Lafayette Journal and Courier


The Supreme Court rebuked President Bush and his anti-terror policies Thursday, ruling that his plan to try Guantanamo Bay detainees in military tribunals violates U.S. and international law. The president and congressional Republicans immediately pledged to work on a new strategy for special trials for some of the hundreds of suspected al-Qaida and Taliban operatives rounded up in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries...

Everyone has, but WHO, CDC and the USA government which has used this scam to line the pockets of pharmaceutical supporters.

What changed the life of US marine James Blake Miller was the sudden shutter click of a war photographer's camera

A Soldier's Story

Combat can change a life in a second. The snap of a sniper's bullet or the blast of a bomb will instantly end it or turn a healthy body into a maimed wreck. But for US marine James Blake Miller what changed his life was the sudden shutter click of a war photographer's camera.

Can't Win the War? Bomb the Press!

"'Old Glory lost today,' Bill Frist declaimed last week when his second attempt to rewrite the Constitution in a single month went the way of his happy prognosis for Terri Schiavo. Of course it isn't Old Glory that lost when the flag-burning amendment flamed out." writes Frank Rich. "The flag always survives the politicians who wrap themselves in it. What really provoked Mr. Frist's crocodile tears was the foiling of yet another ruse to distract Americans from the wreckage in Iraq."

Farm Program Pays $1.3 Billion to People Who Don't Farm

Even though Donald R. Matthews put his sprawling new residence in the heart of rice country, he is no farmer. He is a 67-year-old asphalt contractor who wanted to build a dream house for his wife of 40 years. Yet under a federal agriculture program approved by Congress, his 18-acre suburban lot receives about $1,300 in annual "direct payments," because years ago the land was used to grow rice.

Thank Congressmen Ron Paul and Walter Jones for Speaking Truth

Watch this video and see two Republican Congress Members, Ron Paul and
Walter Jones, provide a stunningly honest critique of the war, and
demand an end to it. Rep. Jones stresses the importance of the White
House Memo that AfterDowningStreet promoted.

Read about the White House Memo.

Rep. Ron Paul
THANK Congressman Paul by Email and phone 202-225-2831.

Rep. Walter Jones with Cindy Sheehan
THANK Congressman Jones by Email and phone 202-225-3415.

Thank these men for speaking truth to power. And, just as importantly,
ask them to take the step that matches their words: ask them to
co-sponsor H. Res. 635, which would create a select committee to
investigate the Administration's intent to go to war before
congressional authorization, its manipulation of pre-war intelligence,
encouraging and countenancing torture, and retaliating against critics.

If you are interested in particpating in a delegation to thank Walter
Jones in person and ask him to sign on to H. Res 635, contact David
Dixon at (704) 492-8527 or

Support Suzanne Swift

Suzanne Swift completed a tour of duty in Iraq, where she was sexually harassed and assaulted. Her efforts to report her treatment were met with disrespect and dismissed. When her unit was to be deployed to Iraq a second time, the 21-year-old Specialist Four Military Police Officer, who was being treated for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, realized she could not return to Iraq and resume her duties in the same unit with the same commanding officer who had sexually assaulted her. Swift remained in Eugene, Ore., for several months. On June 11, 2006, the Eugene Police Department responded to a request by Ft. Lewis officials to pick Swift up and take her to jail, where she spent two nights before being returned to Ft. Lewis. At Ft. Lewis, she was at first confined to her barracks, with the same sergeant who sexually assaulted her, and is now confined to the base. The army is investigating her case. Because of the way Suzanne was treated while serving her country, Swift, her lawyer, and her family are calling for an Honorable Discharge with full medical and veterans' benefits.

Steuergeschenke für Unternehmen, höhere Krankenkassenbeiträge für die Bürger

#Die Linkspartei.PDS: Pressemitteilungen

03. Juli 2006

Zu den Koalitionsbeschlüssen erklärt der Bundesgeschäftsführer der Linkspartei.PDS Dietmar Bartsch:

Im Schatten des Erfolgs der deutschen Fußballnationalmannschaft verkünden SPD und CDU in einem Atemzug Steuergeschenke für Unternehmen und höhere Krankenkassenbeiträge für die Bürgerinnen und Bürger. Das ist dreist. Der Staat verzichtet auf Einnahmen, indem die Unternehmen weiter entlastet werden und holt sich das Geld dann von den Bürgerinnen und Bürgern, in dem ihnen weitere finanzielle Belastungen zugemutet werden. Die Gesundheitsreform war als das zentrale Reformvorhaben der Großen Koalition angekündigt worden. Jetzt zeigt sich: SPD und CDU haben keine neuen Ideen für die Lösung der dringendsten Fragen, sondern verlieren sich einmal mehr auf dem Schlachtfeld des Kompromisses. Der große Wurf ist nicht gelungen, keine dauerhafte Lösung des Finanzproblems in Sicht. Die Krankenkassen werden nicht reduziert. Beide Parteien scheuen einmal mehr vor Auseinandersetzungen mit der Pharmaindustrie und deren Lobby zurück. Sie gehen den Weg des scheinbar geringsten Widerstandes und das heißt: Die Bürgerinnen und Bürger werden geschröpft, ungeachtet dessen dass sie durch die erhöhte Mehrwertsteuer ab 2007 den Gürtel ohnehin enger schnallen müssen.

Republicans are "outraged" that "liberal judges" have prevented Bush from "protecting us from terrorists." In the U.S. Senate, Majority Leader Bill Frist said that Republicans will propose legislation to enable Bush to get around the Supreme Court's decision.


Shadows On The Wall

By Sheila Samples

And so we sit, shackled by self-imposed chains of fear, captivated by shadowy forms that move discordantly across the walls of our perception. Once again we are eager to accept appearance for reality. The Supreme Court ruling last week rejecting George Bush's military commissions to try Guantanamo detainees casts a huge shadow on the wall. Many are saying it not only curbed Bush and Cheney's unlimited presidential power grab, but absolved us of the responsibility of having to do anything about it.

Die Schattenregierung der US-Konzerne

Die Bush-Regierung fördert mit vielen Milliarden Dollar Steuergeldern die Privatwirtschaft und sorgt damit für sprudelnde Gewinne bei Konzernen wie Halliburton und für Korruption, Verschwendung und Misswirtschaft.

Angriff auf kritische Medien

In einer mehrheitlich angenommenen Resolution des US-Repräsentantenhauses werden die Zeitungen, besonders die New York Times, angegriffen, weil sie das Programm zur Überwachung der internationalen Finanztransaktionen bekannt machten und damit der Regierung im Krieg gegen den Terrorismus in den Rücken gefallen sind.
