I offer the following comments and suggestions regarding your preliminary report

First, you have received excellent opinions from others so I will try and avoid duplication of their efforts.

My qualifications are those of a non-accredited EMF researcher with over 15 years' experience particularly re studying all aspects of toxic EMF pollution with an emphasis on harmful health effects.

[See the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Library and Information Services' website ( ) that clearly lists Electromagnetic Fields under the caption "Hazardous Substances." ]

In addition to reviewing EMF/EMR studies and other information extensively, my family and I have suffered greatly due to chronic, prolonged exposures to living close to high voltage powerlines (less than 50 ft.) as well as rare immune deficiencies that were diagnosed in two of our grandsons due to chronic, prolonged exposure to sleeping close to electric meters. Significant improvement occurred in IGG tests for the boys.

Confirmation of the sort of white blood cell changes that predispose one to immune deficiency and Leukemia exists in the studies by Dr. Fatih Uckun, et al, as part of the EMF RAPID Conclusions. The EMF Interagency Committee Report, however, has never been presented to Congress. Release of that report will allow for dissemination of vital information to the public regarding "prudent avoidance measures" that are urgently needed!!!

Guinea pigs in our home who slept next to electric meters developed severe neutropenia, lymphocytosis and hypersegmented neutrophils (slowed DNA synthesis -- "markers for irradiation!!!").........

Surviving guinea pigs (one out of each set of two died within 30 days) had "improved white blood cell counts" -- in other words, the medical profession considers a treatment to be effective when improvement in symptoms are observed (and documented) after making adjustments to one's environment, raising or lowering medications, reducing mold and chemical exposures, etc.

Lowering levels of chronic, prolonged EMF/EMR exposure in the cases of my two grandsons as well as my guinea pigs, are indicative of "successful TREATMENT!!!" Unfortunately, for two of our guinea pigs, "treatment did not occur in time......and they DIED!!!!

In spite of many symptoms suffered by my husband and myself as well as the rest of our family due to exposures from living in close proximiity to high voltage lines for over 30 years, we have been able to improve our lives by removing electrical items off of nightstands/headboards and by also not sleeping in waterbeds -- all what I would define as "Level 1 exposures." (We also take many vitamins and supplements as well as Melatonin without Vitamin B-6 -- a "powerful radioprotectant" according to Dr. Russel Reiter, University of Texas/SanAntonio. -- another "positive change" to help ward off effects of our unhealthy, toxic, EMF/EMR environment that we so far have been unable to reduce -- the two high voltage powerlines....)

My husband improved on his next neuropsych test after we moved his electric clock radio. Such improvement is not even expected at all in regard to the several medications used today in unsuccessful attempts to help slow the progression of Alzheimers!!!

The research I have done over the more than 15 years' of study, confirms that EMF's are toxic. See above reference re toxic exposures/hazardous exposures on the NIEHS site. The Class 2B carcinogen status that currently exists re low levels of EMF exposure (meaning "possible carcinogen") is woefully lacking in specificity when compared to the overwhelming evidence that exists to support the connection to especially Leukemia and brain cancer!!!

You can't define "a safe limit" (nor continue promoting denial and minimization re severity of EMF/EMR chronic, prolonged exposures) for "a toxic agent" that is by its very definition, "a cancer promoter!!!" RECOMMENDATIONS: Exposures should be defined beginning with accepted studies and belief that "close, chronic prolonged EMF/EMR exposure" such as that due to electric items close to beds as Level 1. Exposures due to cell phone usage and perhaps cordless phones -- objects close to one's body but not necessarily while sleeping -- as Level 2. Exposures due to high voltage powerlines -- closer than 300 ft., to homes, perhaps Level 3. Exposures due to telecommunications antenna" -- Level 4.

Persons who talk extensively on a cell phone and report symptoms would fall under Level 2 BUT, if that same person also sleeps next to a cell phone while charging, such an individual would then be assigned exposure Level 1. In other words, BOTH Level 1 and Level 2 would apply. It would be expected that the range-of-severity re "symptoms themselves" will correlate to the exposure levels.

Studies are needed to first sort the most severe health problems such as brain cancer and Alzheimers, Lou Gehrig's, M.S., Parkinsons, etc. in regard to "close exposures" with such studies first ruling out "nighttime chronic, prolonged exposure.

My recommendation is obviously a bit more involved than what I propose although it is obvious that something similar to this may be the only way to determine how much of the radiation from telecommunications' antennae and high voltage powerlines is responsible for the earliest, most severe changes such as Leukaemia in children, breast cancer in adults, etc. -- an area which has been proven but "a specific focus" on nighttime exposure levels does not yet exist.

"Ambient milligauss readings" are wonderful investigative tools -- the children, however, depend upon studies that confirm well-recognized "toxic white blood cell changes" that occur when sleeping close to electrical (and some telephone) objects.

Many scientific studies are flawed even tho there are actually many studies that do find "positive association/results" re low level EMF's. The word "inconclusive" is often used. Scientists live in fear of losing funding IF they produce results that are confirmatory. Governments claim they "...don't want to panic the people..."

The American Cancer Society, back in 1993, provided copies of an article from "USA Today" recommending persons move electric appliances away from close proximity to beds.

An EMF publication that was prepared by the utilities' communications' experts (here in the U.S.) with a date of 2001, was "taken out-of-print" almost immediately. The booklet suggests persons learn about EMF's and "take action that is appropriate for them...." (not verbatim). That publication also suggests one may want to replace electric clocks with battery-operated clocks......

There is a statement on page 5 of your preliminary opinion to the effect that " known mechanism to explain how EMF's may induce Leukaemia......" The truth of the matter is that there are many factors to be considered when evaluating EMF/EMR exposures. The suggestion has come up in literature many times that the "magnetic field," may not be the only offending parameter in regard to promoting the development of "aging cells and/or precancerous cells. Radiofrequency radiation (RF) or perhaps "movement/pulsation, etc." may play a much bigger role in promotion of disruption re intracellular communications.

Our society can no longer afford to withhold "prudent avoidance recommendations" while awaiting "proper studies."

There is and has been "a deliberate effort" to NOT DO the same type of blood studies when evaluating EMF/EMR -- or "non-ionizing radiation" -- that are well-known to be markers for irradiation in the patients who develop neutropenia, hypersegmented neutrophils and various lymphocyte irregularities after undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments ("toxic treatments/exposures").

Prof. Olle Johansson, from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, is willing to conduct the sort of studies described above. I recommend you strongly consider the excellent work that has already been done by Prof. Johansson -- studies that provide many clues to explain the mechanisms by which histamine and many other biological changes are not only related, but actually are the explanations for all health problems all the way from poor sleep to cancer.

I ask you to give strong consideration to reviewing an interview with Prof. Johansson re elecrosensitivity titled "Mystery in Skin." Access info:

I also received an excellent report containing a listing of some of Prof. Johanssons's studies the other day. I strongly recommend an in-depth review of this listing * * * * * * * *

which will make it clear that the mechanisms are obvious and that those who choose to continue to allow citizens around-the-world to "fight to survive" when a scientist such as Prof. Johansson -- some others too, of course -- is working hard and has worked hard to make the point that to not take the issue very seriously, and to not issue "precautionary recommendations" to citizens everywhere, is really subjecting humans as well as animals to "experimentation without consent" -- a clear violation of universal civil rights!!!!!

Best wishes to all for good health!!! Joanne

This is not an election anymore, it's an intervention

Conservative Andrew Sullivan: Bush "Has Lost His Mind"

President Bush said yesterday that both Donald Rumsfeld and Vice President Cheney "are doing fantastic jobs, and I strongly support them." Andrew Sullivan, the conservative writer who was once a key media supporter for the Iraq war, denounced the latest Bush statement on CNN on Wednesday night, stating that the president is so delusional, "This is not an election anymore, it's an intervention."

Fear-mongering has its diminishing returns

Osama Isn't Running

The Los Angeles Times editors write: "Hard as it is to imagine now, there was a time in the not-so-distant past when the GOP was considered to be the 'party of ideas.' As the 2006 campaign draws to a merciful close, the only idea national Republicans seem to have left is that, when in doubt, accuse Democrats of being a bunch of terrorist-loving wimps. But as the boy who cried wolf learned the hard way, fear-mongering has its diminishing returns."

How Neocon Favorites Duped US

Robert Parry writes: "When American voters go to the polls on November 7, one of the foremost questions that should be on their minds is how did the United States get into the Iraq mess, which has claimed the lives of more than 2,800 US soldiers and possibly hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. What went wrong with Washington, and what can citizens do about it?"

Is There a Scandal in the House?

It's a scandal-filled election this year with two bribery convictions, one money-laundering indictment, two sex scandals, one Russian contracting fiasco and $90,000 stashed in a freezer. The string of scandals could cost the Republicans their majority in the House.

The Great Divider: Mr. Bush is inventing a fantasy world in which to campaign on phony issues against fake enemies

The New York Times editors write: "As President Bush throws himself into the final days of a particularly nasty campaign season, he's settled into a familiar pattern of ugly behavior. Since he can't defend the real world created by his policies and his decisions, Mr. Bush is inventing a fantasy world in which to campaign on phony issues against fake enemies."

Olbermann: Bush Owes Troops Apology, Not Kerry

"There is no line this president has not crossed - or will not cross - to keep one political party in power," says Keith Olbermann. "He has spread any and every fear among us in a desperate effort to avoid that which he most fears - some check, some balance against what has become not an imperial, but a unilateral presidency."

Das Recht der Öffentlichkeit auf die Impfkomplikations-Meldedaten

Aus: impf-report Newsletter Ausgabe Nr. 39/2006

Da bei der Zulassung eines Impfstoffs aufgrund der beschränkten Größe der Studien nur ein Bruchteil der schweren Impfkomplikationen erfasst werden kann(1), kommt der Erfassung während des breiten Masseneinsatzes eine enorme Bedeutung zu.

Bis noch vor kurzem wurden diesbezügliche Anfragen an das Paul- Ehrlich-Institut (PEI), der für Impfstoffzulassungen und Impfstoff- sicherheit zuständigen Bundesbehörde, abgeblockt oder einfach igno- riert.

Diese Situation hat sich seit 1. Januar 2006 mit dem Inkrafttreten des Informationsfreiheitsgesetze (IFG) wesentlich verbessert: Jeder Bürger kann bei Bundesbehörden unter Berufung auf das IFG interne Unterlagen anfordern und die Behörde muss diese Anfrage innerhalb einer Frist von einem Monat bearbeiten.

Mit Hilfe dieses Gesetzes konnte ich auch erste Erfolge erzielen: Erstmals liegen Zahlen der jährlichen Meldungen unter Berücksichti- gung der Meldequelle seit Inkrafttreten der Meldepflicht ab 2001 vor(2). Über weitere Anfragen bin ich derzeit dabei, auch rückwir- kend die genauen Zahlen und auch die jeweils betroffenen Impfstoffe anzufordern.

Doch selbst wenn Bundesbehörden unter anwaltlicher Einschaltung einlenken und die gewünschten Informationen liefern, heißt das noch lange nicht, dass sie auch KOOPERATIV sind: So erhielt ich die Meldedaten, die das PEI regelmäßig an ihre Schwesternbehörde, Ro- bert-Koch-Institut (RKI), liefert, von dieser nicht etwa vollstän- dig, sondern nur in einer stark abgespeckten Version. Und auch die- se abgespeckten 1872 Datensätze erhielt ich nicht etwa in Form ei- ner Datenbank, die es mir ermöglichte, die Datensätze in ein geläu- figes Format zu überspielen, um sie dann nach eigenen Kriterien auswerten zu können. Vielmehr ist der Export der Daten vollständig gesperrt und selbst das Ausdrucken ist immer nur für einen einzigen Datensatz möglich! Selbst ausgewiesene Kenner der Datenbankmaterie sahen sich bisher nicht in der Lage, die Sperre(3) zu umgehen.

Die Absicht dahinter ist klar: Niemand außerhalb der Behörden soll unabhängige Auswertungen durchführen und damit ihre Tätigkeit - o- der Untätigkeit - kontrollieren können. Tatsächlich ist es für mich aus zeitlichen Gründen nicht möglich, diese 1872 Datensätze einzeln neu einzutippen. Wenn jedoch in Arbeitsteilung 10 Personen etwa 200 Datensätze neu erfassen, oder 20 Personen je 100 Datensät- ze, so könnte man den zeitlichen Aufwand in überschaubaren Grenzen halten.

Die Öffentlichkeit hat einen Anspruch auf diese Daten und mein Ziel ist es, die Datensätze in einer allgemein zugänglichen Form im Internet hochzuladen, so dass jedermann sich ein eigenes Bild über die erfassten Impfkomplikationen machen kann. Z.B. ist es sehr wichtig zu wissen, wie viele Meldungen in welchem Zeitraum durch welchen Impfstoff verursacht wurden.

Wenn Sie mithelfen wollen, die Daten neu einzugeben, so melden Sie sich bitte bei mir, damit ich Ihnen die Datenbank auf einer CD zu- sammen mit einer leeren Musterdatei für die manuelle Eingabe zusen- den kann. Meine Kontaktdaten finden Sie unten im Impressum.

Another Day in the Empire

On October 17, with little fanfare, the unitary decider signed H.R.5122, or the John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007. ... According to a press release from the office of Senator Patrick Leahy, however, the bill takes a 'sizable step toward weakening states' authority over their [National] Guard units ...' As if having their National Guard units on the other side of the world, in Iraq and who knows where the next stop may be, doesn't weaken the state's authority over their National Guard units as it is. And, as is the norm now, the list of situations and scenarios in which the Decider is able to 'employ the armed forces, including the National Guard in Federal service' ends in the all too familiar any 'other condition in any State or possession of the United States, the President determines that domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of ('refuse' or 'fail' in) maintaining public order, 'in order to suppress, in any State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy'...

The growing NID trap

News With Views
by Tom DeWeese


Although issued by the states, through the Department of Motor Vehicles, the Real ID is a national identification card system. States must comply with federal guidelines by May, 2008. If states fail to meet that deadline, then driver's licenses from non-complying states will not qualify as official identification and so cannot be used to get on airplanes or obtain services from the federal government, including medical care ... As the Real ID Act is fully implemented, the driver's license will be essential for one to be a full participant in American society. Failure to have it will literally shut one out from opening a bank account, getting a loan, gaining employment, marriage license medical care and purchase of firearms...

Panic in Big Pharma

by Peter Rost


Few recent elections have been as critical for the drug industry as this one. And that's the reason The Wall Street Journal reports that 'Assailed by Democrats, drug companies are pouring millions of dollars into close races, giving some Republicans a financial edge.' What is at stake is a financial windfall the size of which has never before been endowed on a single industry, courtesy of the current administration. And that windfall is coming from drugs for poor people. By some estimates the windfall for the drug industry could be $2 billion or more this year, and it is the result of the transfer of millions of poor people into the new Medicare Part D program ... the program isn't very effective. Los Angeles Times claims that 'a review by the Senior Action Network, a grass-roots advocacy group in San Francisco, found that Costco's prices on the top 100 drugs used by Medicare beat prices of all 48 plans in California in more than half the cases.' Meanwhile, 'The net federal cost of the new benefit is projected to be $37.4 billion in 2006 and $724 billion from 2006 to 2015. But the program is good for the drug companies, and the insurance industry'...

Inflation: a moral problem

Last week, the U.S. Federal Reserve decided to maintain short-term interest rates at 5.25 percent for its third consecutive meeting.

In the last days of an election campaign that many will interpret as a referendum on the Iraq war, both the president of the United States and the prime minister of Iraq say they are dissatisfied with the state of things in that violence-beset country.

Divide the spoiled: a Republican defeat is the best hope for limited government

by Jacob Sullum


After six years of reckless statism under Bush -- the consequences of which have been documented in National Review articles and AEI studies, among other places -- it is now almost routine to see conservatives draw unfavorable comparisons between him and his predecessor. The near-nostalgia for Clinton among Republicans who reviled him speaks volumes about conservative disgust with the Bush administration, which could depress turnout enough to result in a Democratic takeover of one or both houses of Congress on November 7. Or so I hope. I'm eagerly anticipating a Republican defeat because the party richly deserves it after failing so miserably to deliver on its promises of smaller (or even slightly less gargantuan) government...

When the debate over expanding the U.S. Army begins in 2007, there need to be voices raised calling for withdrawal of U.S. ground forces from Korea and Central Asia, where they do not belong, and a bottom-up review of all U.S. war guarantees. This will be denounced as isolationism. But was it isolationism for the Russians to go home from Cuba? Just as we wanted the French, British, Spanish, and, finally, Russians out of our hemisphere, other nations bristle at U.S. troops stationed just over their border... (for publication 11/06/06)

Give up the fatal contradiction

The Power of Narrative
by Arthur Silber


As has been true for several years, we are faced with a very stark choice, but it is one that none of our political leaders will face honestly and openly. For to state the choice explicitly, and to dispense completely with all the tattered excuses for the unending slaughter, is to acknowledge just how terrible the results of our actions are. On the one hand, we can fully embrace our role as occupiers. That would mean we give up the pretense of Iraq being a 'sovereign' nation, but one which does exactly as we demand on every matter of importance. We make it unequivocally clear that we call all the shots, and no one else. And to establish the order and stability that are nowhere to be found at the moment, we fully embrace brute force as completely as may be required. To put the basic point very bluntly: we kill as many people as we have to. With the exception of the most bloodthirsty hawks, no one wants to do this -- and no one will admit that this is one of only two possibilities now before us...

Phone mast squashed

02 November 2006

A PHONE mast which has blighted the lives of families for a decade has been removed.

The mast, operated by mobile phone giant Orange, has now been taken down from Bedonwell School, in Bedonwell Road, Belvedere.

Campaigner Alan Eaton, the brainchild behind action group Orange Squash, said: "We have long campaigned for the removal of this mast and finally it has been taken down."

Fellow resident Ted Gorman said: "The residents are delighted as for the first time in ten years they are no longer under the shadow of the mobile phone mast."

Orange have had a mast on the school site since 1995, but planned to remove it and replace it on a site 700 metres from the school.

The proposals outraged parents who feared for the health and safety of their children who attend the school.

Mr Eaton and fellow residents launched a campaign against the proposal collecting 300 signatures from parents.

He went on to collect a further 500 signatures and gave the petition to David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford, who handed it to Parliament. The mobile phone company has since found a new site to put their mast, in Woolwich Road, Belvedere. Councillor David Leaf is leading opposition against the proposals.

Bedonwell residents also have another campaign on their hands as T-Mobile has also claimed interest in the site.

Masts and care for community


01 November 2006

SIR - I was delighted to read Tim Langdon's letter regarding mobile phone masts on church towers.

It was very helpful to get all the facts regarding money paid to the Government which makes it clear why the mobile phone companies are eager to claw back their investments.

As a member of St Mary's Church, where we are so often reminded of our need to care for our neighbours, I find it hard to understand that they are even thinking of having a mast on the church tower. There is no firm knowledge about the safety to public health and I hope that public opinion and care for the community will stop the mast being erected.

Church ditches phone mast plan

By East Lothian Newsroom

Thursday November 2, 2006

CONTROVERSIAL plans to erect a mobile phone mast inside the tower of Haddington West Church have been scrapped in the face of protests from residents.

Members of the NO 2 O2 action group collected 1,645 signatures in a petition against phone operator O2’s bid to install a ‘base station’ inside the Court Street church.

Fears were raised by locals who linked phone mast emissions to an increased risk of leukaemia.

Desiree Dunkinson, of Victoria Road, who led placard-waving battlers in silent protests outside the church, claimed independent research had shown that people living within 300 metres of such a mast could “suffer serious health effects”.

But at a meeting on Monday, members of the West Church’s congregational board passed a motion to end talks with O2, who had submitted a planning application to East Lothian Council for the transmitter, killing the base station plan stone dead.

A West Church spokesman told the Courier: “We have heard the voice of the community and the clear expression of perceived danger.

“Irrespective of the assurances provided by the official bodies set up to protect us, the board decided that this was principally a matter of relationships and that the Christian way was to build bridges rather than create barriers.”

The purpose of Monday’s meeting was to allow members to consider information and various opinions before making a decision on the matter.

NO 2 O2 handed over the petition, while board members also learned of the concerns of staff and parents at local schools and a number of congregation members.

The church learned there were 116 masts in East Lothian, many in town centres and closer to schools than the West Church.

An alternative motion to delay a decision until a number of current studies into potential risks had been published and evaluated was also defeated.

Mrs Dunkinson, who saw two cousins battle leukaemia, welcomed the board’s decision.

“We are delighted with the result that they are not going ahead with the 3Gmast and so will be all the people from Haddington who have supported us and have signed the petition,” she said.

“We would like to thank everybody who has helped and supported us with this campaign.

“The support has truly been amazing. We would like to thank the West Church for listening to the concerns of the community.”

This weeks Irish Post – National Weekly News Paper

Irish Post – Exclusive: how one Irish woman took on the mobile phone giants.

Make sure you buy the Irish post this week; it’s a National News paper, Reporter Brendan Farrell has done an excellent exclusive double page article on me and the phone mast campaign including photographs, leading from the enclosed attached photograph of me on the front page “thought I’d enclosed the photograph of me used in the news paper just in case you get me mixed up with the leprachauns”. Page 6 and 7 is titled “Mobile mast protester who will not be silenced” it’s brilliant and should create much needed awareness; it is out today for one week, although I can’t find it on the internet yet.

They have called me an Irish woman which is almost true as most people who originate from Liverpool are fondly know as Paddy’s who can swim.

I am proud to be called an Irish woman, after all I am married into an Irish Family and my own Grandparents have roots from Ireland, I’ve got that Irish blood running through my veins.

Remember, remember the fifth of November, 2003 ‘Bonfire night’ when the Wishaw mast mysteriously disappeared?

The article talks about the campaign to keep the felled Wishaw mast away after discovering the cancer cluster in the tiny hamlet of Wishaw. The final sentence in the new article says “Does Eileen really know who pulled the mast down in Wishaw? “Do you believe in Leprachauns?” she smiles.

Thankfully we still don’t know who is responsible, we often wonder about the mystery warrior; could the enclosed images of leprachauns ‘please see above and below’ be photographic evidence??????

Also attached a photograph taken when the Irish flag was flying on the CCTV camera pole in Wishaw this was a celebration of Paddy’s day, the camera is still in place today, keeping an eye on the empty phone mast site.

Dear Eileen: This is FABULOUS!!!!

I suspect "leprachauns" are really "angels-in-disguise!!!"

Many persons enjoy "wearing the green" and drinking green beer on St. Patrick's Day. I even treasure a small pin that until now, had forgotten about. It is a cute leprachaun. Maybe the pin should be worn "as a symbol" -- green being symbolic of healthier EMF/EMR environment and the leprachaun, an angel in-cognito.....???

The "Irish connection" also came up in another way. Jill Ungar, Research Editor for the Science and Public Policy Institute site referred to me as "A Whirling Dervish" in a recent email.

I guess I do "run-around-in-circles" a lot so the description is appropos (smiles).....

I have a local newspaper article with pictures of me using a gaussmeter by our two high voltage powerlines (about 7 years ago). Unfortunately the article did not stimulate any interest or lead to any sort of help (Minnesota) in regard to "waging the war" in spite of the reporter's willingness to convey my concerns particularly re childhood Leukaemia.

Jill is "a wee bit (alot) Irish too.....!!!" We know "more than a "little Irish" is frequently expressed by many of our EMF/EMR friends too!!!

I don't drink beer but would love to participate in a toast to better health for all at a celebration once funding is obtained for Prof. Olle Johansson (we KNOW he is "Irish" as well) -- maybe "green wine?" -- when the Charity Children With Leukaemia joins forces with Olle to allow for "proper white blood count studies," so "prudent avoidance issues" will once again be publicly announced???!!!!!

Take care "my Irish friend" and "keep thinking GREEN too" -- the "green" we need to reveal "secrets in red" (money for proper blood studies Prof. Olle Johansson is waiting to do)........ Joanne

Environmentalists Attack Republican Stronghold in California

In a year of unpopular Republican incumbents, perhaps no congressman is more reviled than Richard Pombo of California. Environmentalists loathe him because, as chair of the House Resources Committee, he advocated selling off one quarter of the country's national parks and pushed for oil and gas drilling in the Alaskan wilderness and the Pacific Ocean. The media has been gunning for him because he took money from the disgraced Republican Party lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Republicans in his district have been made queasy by his deals with developers, who have increased the value of his family-held landholdings while contributing to his political campaign fund.

Jobkiller steht schon vor der Tür

#Die Linkspartei.PDS: Pressemitteilungen

02. November 2006

Zur Situation auf dem deutschen Arbeitsmarkt im Monat Oktober erklärt der Bundesgeschäftsführer Dietmar Bartsch:

Jeden Monat das gleiche Spiel: Die herrschende Politik wartet auf die aktuellen Zahlen des Arbeitsmarktes. Sinken diese, lobt sich die Regierung selbst, obwohl die derzeit sinkenden Arbeitslosenzahlen Folge eines Aufschwungs in der Wirtschaft und der wegen der Mehrwertsteuererhöhung vorgezogenen Einkäufe sind. Mit der Politik der großen Koalition hat das nichts zu tun. Im Gegenteil, der Jobkiller Mehrwertsteuererhöhung steht schon vor der Tür. Dabei darf nicht übersehen werden, dass zur positiven Entwicklung nach wie vor 1-Euro-Jobs und die Bereinigung der Statistik beitragen. Ich freue mich über jeden, der eine Arbeit gefunden hat, mit der er sich und seine Familie ernähren kann. Mehr als 4 Millionen Arbeitslose sind nach wie vor ein ernstes Problem. Fakt ist auch, dass die Konjunktur nur einem Teil der Arbeitslosen hilft denjenigen, die weniger als ein Jahr arbeitslos waren. Für sie gibt es noch Vermittlungschancen oder es greifen Maßnahmen der Arbeitsagentur, während der überwiegende Teil der Langzeitarbeitslosen sowohl von der BA als auch von der Regierung abgeschrieben worden sind. Ihre Chancen wieder Arbeit zu finden sind gering. Ich fordere daher nachdrücklich, dass die von der Bundesagentur eingesparte Milliardensumme nicht zum Stopfen der Haushaltslöcher der Bundesregierung missbraucht wird, sondern für eine aktive Arbeitsmarktpolitik und öffentliche Beschäftigung eingesetzt wird. Alles andere ist staatlich sanktionierter Beitragsklau, der Arbeitslose und Langzeitarbeitslose um ein Leben in Würde bringt.

A truly scary Iraq scenario

The astounding arrogance that underwrites Bush's smug determination to keep killing and maiming tens, perhaps hundreds, of thousands of people is no different than that of Presidents Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon. Both knew the war was a failure, but determined to "stay the course" for a decade out of a misguided belief in protecting an image of American infallibility that was paired with shameful political motives.

U.S. "blunders" in Iraq are staggering

U.S. officials on the bases paid cash to fly-by-night Iraqi agents to cart away new vehicles and spare parts - along with generators - that had been left behind by Saddam's army. The Iraqis then sold the valuable equipment in Syria and Jordan and paid kickbacks to the U.S. officials.

The Enlightenment of Resistance

By Manuel Valenzuela

Resistance will begin when the many begin the healing of civilization and the planet, when a massive movement commences to purge warmongering leadership from our midst, when a tidal wave of humanity floods the concrete jungles and steel canyons we live in, marching to the drumbeats of peace, non-violence and universal harmony. That is Revolution at the dawn of the 21st century.

The continued, unconstitutional marginalization of black voters in America

"American Blackout"

Video Documentary - Directed by Ian Inaba

Kicking off with the detailed argument that black voters in Florida were systematically disenfranchised in the 2000 presidential election, the film then pulls double duty: It’s a fine-tooth examination of both the continued, unconstitutional marginalization of black voters in America and the attempts by various political and media machines to crush McKinney in retaliation for her outspokenness on that subject and on the illegality of the war in Iraq.

How the Corporatocracy Sets the Rules of the "Game" To Create Peons

The Spoils of Corruption

By Charles Sullivan

The mainstream media, like organized religion, is used to program public perceptions-to steer us away from truth and to perpetuate fairy tales that extol the virtues of bribery, violence, and greed. It makes useful idiots of those who cannot think for themselves and persuades them to act like fools in the eyes of the world.
