Bush Will Say Anything

Robert Parry writes, "The November 7 elections are shaping up as not just a choice between Republicans and Democrats, but a test of how gullible - and how divorced from reality - the American people have become."

New Telemarketing Ploy Steers Voters on Republican Path

Using a telemarketing tactic that is best known for steering consumers to buy products, the organizers of the political telephone calls say they have reached hundreds of thousands of homes in five states over the last several weeks in a push to win votes for Republicans.

End of the Neo-Cons

David Olive writes: "Whether or not the Republicans lose control of one or both houses of the US Congress on Tuesday, the neo-conservative vision that has guided American foreign policy since 2001 has run its course. The neo-cons' grand design lies in ruins, having accomplished nothing other than to shrink America's stature in the world."

The Irresponsible

Jean-Marcel Bouguereau suggests that trusting that current world leadership will attempt to save the human race from the depredations of unchecked industrialization would be an obvious mistake.

An Ideology of Lying

"It is not news to anybody that Bush followers lie repeatedly and aggressively," writes Glenn Greenwald. "But what does continue to amaze is that there is literally no limit on their willingness to do so even when - especially when - it requires them to ignore and contradict even the most glaring facts which everyone can see, as clear as day, right in front of our faces."

GOP Must Go

The American Conservative writes: "It should surprise few readers that we think a vote that is seen - in America and the world at large - as a decisive 'No' vote on the Bush presidency is the best outcome ... On November 7, the world will be watching as we go to the polls, seeking to ascertain whether the American people have the wisdom to try to correct a disastrous course."

Where Are You Harry?

William Fisher writes: "Duncan Hunter, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, announced he would be seeking the Republican Party's nomination for president in 2008 ... What he didn't announce is that he had one of his staffers insert in the Defense Department's funding bill, literally in the middle of the night, a provision to shut down the Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, known as SEGIR ... American occupation officials have been sent to jail on bribery and conspiracy charges, and SEGIR has exposed disastrously poor construction work by well-connected companies, and discovered that the military did not properly track hundreds of thousands of weapons it shipped to Iraqi security forces."

Die letzte Karte für Bush: Todesurteil gegen den Diktator


Drei Anwälte ermordert: Ex-Präsident Saddam Hussein von Sondertribunal zum Tode verurteilt (06.11.06)

Nach gut einjähriger Verhandlung ist im Irak das Urteil gegen den früheren Staats- und Regierungschef Saddam Hussein gefallen. Wegen Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit verurteilte ihn ein Sondertribunal am Sonntag zur Höchststrafe: Tod durch Erhängen. Das Urteil gegen Saddam ist noch nicht rechtskräftig. Die Menschenrechtsorganisation Amnesty International bezeichnete in einer in London veröffentlichten Erklärung den Prozess gegen Saddam Hussein als "fehlerbehaftet und unfair". Das Verfahren habe eigentlich dazu beitragen sollen, Justiz und Rechtsstaatlichkeit im Irak voranzubringen. Tatsächlich sei es jedoch eine "schäbige Angelegenheit" gewesen, welche die Fähigkeit des Tribunals in Frage stelle, nach internationalen Standards Recht zu sprechen.

Working To Make Your Vote Count

Tomorrow is Election Day and the NAACP is prepared to ensure that you can exercise your right to vote and have it counted. For months our units have been working across the country to make certain that eligible voters are registered, informed about important issues, and prepared to make decisions in this year’s mid-term elections.

Today, the NAACP is involved in a national effort to Get-Out-The-Vote and is committed to protecting each vote cast on November 7th. The NAACP is part of the nation’s most comprehensive and far-reaching nonpartisan Election Protection Coalition. Joined by People for the American Way and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the NAACP is prepared to provide direct and immediate assistance to voters by way of a national Election Protection hotline: 1-866-OUR-VOTE.

Find Out Where To Vote! (click here)

The 1-866-OUR-VOTE hotline is staffed by live call center operators trained to provide state-specific assistance to all voters. Lawyers, poll monitors and additional volunteers will be mobilized to inform voters and solve problems on issues such as voter identification requirements, voting machine malfunctions, problems at the polling place, and voter intimidation between now and Election Day. While the toll-free hotline will be available to voters nationwide, Election Protection ground operations will be concentrated in target states with precincts most at risk for disenfranchisement, including low-income communities, African American and Latino communities, and areas with a history of voting irregularities.

The decisions we make tomorrow will certainly have an impact on our future. Please take a moment to take down 1-866-OUR-VOTE and keep it handy on Election Day.


Finally, here are some informational tools that I hope will help you, your friends, and family members better prepare to Get-Out-The-Vote tomorrow!

This year’s mid-term elections are important and people of color stand to make a difference on November 7th, so let's value our vote and vote our values!

Creating a free America

Strike the Root
by Kevin van Horn


Researcher Gene Sharp counts 198 distinct methods of nonviolent action. Of especial importance are the methods of political noncooperation, which include civil disobedience, rejection of authority, and boycott of government institutions. These are aimed at weakening the State's power, but equally or more important is their effect on the resisters themselves. Noncooperation breaks the habits of obedience and submission; it reduces fear; it breeds independence, confidence, and awareness of one's personal power. It is the point where the former subject begins to rise off his knees and proclaim, 'I am a free man!

Meßlatte für deutsche EU-Ratspräsidentschaft: mehr direkte Bürgerbeteiligung

#Die Linkspartei.PDS: Pressemitteilungen

06. November 2006

Im nächsten Jahr wird Deutschland den Vorsitz der G8 und im ersten Halbjahr gleichzeitig die EU-Präsidentschaft innehaben. Gestern beriet die Bundesregierung über Ziele der Doppelpräsidentschaft und veröffentlichte eine Erklärung zur deutschen EU-Ratspräsidentschaft. Dazu erklärt Helmut Scholz, Mitglied des Parteivorstands der Linkspartei.PDS und des Vorstandes der Europäischen Linkspartei:

Die Doppelratspräsidentschaft Deutschlands im nächsten Jahr der EU und in der G8 ist nicht nur Chance sondern vor allem Verantwortung für die Bundesregierung und aller politischen Institutionen Deutschlands, einschließlich der im Bundestag vertretenen Parteien. Es gilt die Kräfte zu bündeln, um notwendige Veränderungen in Europa und darüber hinaus koordiniert und ambitioniert in Angriff zu nehmen. Ich teile die in der Erklärung vorgenommene Positionierung, dass Deutschland seinen Platz in der Mitte Europas hat und die EU als Staatenverbund eine politische Union ist. Die vollmundigen Worte von Frau Merkel können jedoch nicht darüber hinweg täuschen, dass ein Kurswechsel in der Politik der Europäischen Union von der Bundesregierung offensichtlich nach wie vor nicht beabsichtigt wird. Für die Bundesregierung bleiben ein neoliberaler Politikansatz und einseitig an Profitraten der Unternehmen orientierte Vorgaben Hauptgesichtspunkt europäischer Politik. Gerade dies aber hat vor dem Hintergrund des real erlebten Alltags in Paris und Warschau, in Amsterdam und in Lissabon und fast überall in der EU zum Zweifeln der Menschen am Sinn europäischen Zusammengehens geführt: Europa wird durch das Agieren nationaler Eliten den in der EU lebenden Menschen immer ferner, uninteressanter und gegensätzlicher zu eigenen Lebensplanungen. Das war zu weiten Teilen der Hauptgrund für die Ablehnung des EUVerfassungsvertrages durch die Bürgerinnen und Bürger Frankreichs und der Niederlande und auch von den Parteien der Europäischen Linken, darunter der Linkspartei.PDS. Die Bundesregierung will dazu beitragen, neues Vertrauen in die europäischen Institutionen zu schaffen und die Zustimmung der Bürgerinnen und Bürger zur europäischen Integration wieder zu stärken. Doch dazu bedarf es eines anderen Vorgehens als gestern Abend vorgestellt. Wenn das europäische Projekt nicht endgültig verkommen soll als Gefeilsche zwischen Lobby-Gruppen und nationalen Eigeninteressen in einer globalisierten kapitalistischen Welt, brauchen wir in Europa mehr als vollmundige Reden und ein Weiter so wie bisher. Eine politische Union ist nicht möglich ohne Sozial-, Wirtschafts- und Umweltunion und umgekehrt. Und die Klammer für alles ist die direkte Beteiligungsmöglichkeit und -garantie der Bürgerinnen und Bürger an den Entscheidungen der europäischen Integration. Darunter ist ein wirkliches Europa nicht zu haben. Und das, Frau Merkel, ist die Meßlatte für die deutsche EU-Ratspräsidentschaft. Etwas Zeit zum Nachbessern Ihres Angebots bleibt noch: Die Linke und die europäische Öffentlichkeit werden sie daran messen.

Nach seinen Worten soll darüber am Dienstag im DGB-Bundesvorstand mit den anderen Einzelgewerkschaften beraten werden. (…) Nachdrücklich machte Bsirske deutlich, dass die Gewerkschaften ihre Proteste gegen die neoliberale Politik der Bundesregierung auch nach den Kundgebungen vom 21. Oktober fortsetzen wollen. (…) Dafür seien vor allem Betriebsversammlungen vorgesehen, aber auch das Aufsuchen von Betriebsräten während der Arbeitszeit und die Befragung von Beschäftigten.

Go-ahead for phone mast near school

By Rob Devey

A MOBILE phone mast will be erected just 200 yards from a Bolton school after councillors said their hands were tied by planning guidelines.

Governors at the 330-pupil Church Road Primary School had objected to the 45 ft high O2 mast proposed for the junction of Moss Bank Way and Captain's Clough Road in Smithills.

Objectors were concerned about possible health effects and also the impact on bats and owls found in the area. continued...

Residents also claimed the structure would be an eyesore.

Joesph Crook, vice-chairman of the Church Road school governors, told Bolton Council's planning and highways committee: "The radiation emitted could be dangerous for our children, who are aged between three and 12.

"We can't identify any possible advantage to them. The Stewart Report commissioned by the Government says masts should not be near to schools."

Cllr Roger Hayes also called for the application to be rejected, saying the mast appeared to be of "low importance to the network".

He said that while Government guidelines meant health grounds could not be used to justify refusing the plan, members should reject it because of the mast's visual impact.

But Cllr Laurie Williamson said the council would be likely to lose an appeal.

"The bottom line view of the Government is that there are no appreciable or definable health risks from masts," he said.

"If they can't put a mast here, where can they put it?"

Councillors voted 13-5 in favour of the mast, leaving Mr Crook "disturbed" by the decision.

"I have tested the reception on an O2 phone in the area and it seems fine," he said.

"We're very disappointed. Above all, we're thinking of our children."

O2 spokesman Tom Powell said the application had met guidelines on emissions and was accompanied by an International Commission on No-Ionizing Radiation Protection certificate.

Mr Powell said the mast was needed to boost network coverage in the area.

Saddam Verdict Date "Rigged" for Bush

Saddam Hussein's defense team has urged a delay of his possible death sentence and said the ousted Iraqi leader believed today's expected verdict was timed to boost President George Bush before US mid-term elections.

They Can't Steal A LANDSLIDE

This entire year we have thrown all our energy into finding and supporting the best progressive candidates we could. In two days we are hoping that at least enough seats will be gained in the House of Representatives so we can START to have some oversight and regain some control over what is supposed to be our democracy.

But in the meantime, recognize that we have very long way to go. Just this morning Dick Cheney was on the Sunday ABC This Week program and declared in his usual cagey and dismissive way that they would resist any subpoenas based on the usual gang of Constitutional canards about supreme executive authority.


So just electing a Democratic majority in one chamber of Congress or another is no magic ticket. We must continue to keep the maximum heat with our regular action pages on whoever does get elected this Tuesday so they will know another day of accountability will come again soon enough, and our numbers and our voices will be stronger still.

Let us be able to look back and say we did everything we could. When we did the primary challenges in California last June, although we had no outright victories, those challenged have come significantly over to our side in calling for a change in Iraq policy. We have had REAL positive impact already and we're not going to stop.

In just the last month we have raised about $70,000 to support the brave candidates on the Peace Team, thanks to your generous support. We definitely have candidates within striking distance, where none of the "smart" money would have given them any chance at all.

There are still things we can do at the last minute that can make all the difference in the world, make phone calls, help get out the vote and poll watch. Call the individual campaigns in your jurisdication and volunteer to do something if you can. Or make a last minute donation to help in these efforts.


And know that we have done absolutely everything we could have done.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours.

Gehen Sie davon aus, dass es in Deutschland noch keinen wirksamen Schutz vor Mobilfunkstrahlung gibt

Ihre Fürsorge ist aller Ehren wert. Bitte gehen Sie jedoch leider davon aus, dass es in Deutschland noch keinen wirksamen Schutz vor Mobilfunkstrahlung gibt. Noch nicht. So wie es bei den Skandalen um Contergan und PCP/PCB Jahrzehnte dauerte, so wird es auch in unserem Land noch sehr lange dauern, bevor Vernunft und Einsicht Oberhand gewinnen. Natürlich gibt es teure Abschirmmöglichkeiten für Wohnräume, die allerdings vielfach als Placebo angesehen werden. Als sieben Meter neben unserem Wohnhaus eine Mobilfunkstation bei Nacht und Nebel aufgebaut wurde, haben wir für 1.500 Euro eine neutrale Messung der Strahlenbelastung ausführen lassen und danach beim zuständigen Landgericht auf Rückbau geklagt. Als der gegnerische Anwalt die neutrale Messung nicht nur infrage stellte sondern als blanken Unsinn bezeichnete, haben wir den von uns beauftragten "Strahlenexperten" um Gegendarstellung gebeten. Das Ergebnis war denkbar kläglich, da sich dieser "Experte" auch nach mehrfacher Aufforderung überhaupt nicht mehr meldete. Die Klage wurde abgewiesen, die Gesamtkosten betrugen zum Abschluß annähernd 5.000 Euro. Warum ich Ihnen das schreibe? Nach meiner Erfahrung tummeln sich im Mobilfunkspektrum zu viele Scharlatane, die besorgten Menschen Geld aus der Nase ziehen. Also Vorsicht!

Help required folks. Please see this story "RADIATION RISK ON THE ROOF" in Saturday's (4.11.06) Bristol Evening Post about ill health and cancer clusters in a block of flats:

Just to get you interested/annoyed the Orange spokes person said, "It is interesting that the residents believe if the mast is gone they will be free of radiation but this will not be the case. In fact, a 90- second phone call on a mobile is the equivalent in exposure terms to standing in front of a mast for a full 24 hours without moving.

"We are obviously sensitive to the fact that some people who live there have health problems, but there is no evidence to suggest the phone masts are in any way a cause of their various illnesses." Would like the Bristol Evening Post to be flooded with letters if possible (well 2 or 3 at least). It is only me who ever responds to such stories in the BEP so it would be great if a few of you could also write. You can email your letter marked "for publication" to '' or write to Readers Letters, Bristol Evening Post, Temple Way, Bristol, BS99 7HD. (The usual 250 word limit is given but I have got away with 295 in the past)!

Thanks for your help,

How can 90 seconds on a mobile phone be the equivilent to standing in front of a mast for 24 hours ?????????????????

I just don't get it !!

A mast near me that it proposed has a rating of 100 Watts of output power. What is the output power of a mobile phone ? Does anyone know ? I'm sure I read somewhere that its a few Watts, so its doesn't seem comparable....

Anyone know what Orange might be talking about here ?????



Bristol Cancer Cluster in Flats (Vodaphone and Orange Masts on Roof)

I've heard this one before too.

With a mast, the power output is high (100W) but you're tens of metres from it. With a phone, the power output is low (a few Watts), but you're only millimetres from it. The amount of energy you absorb is dependent on:

1. the power output

2. how far away you are

3. how long you are exposed So someone's done the maths and worked out you absorb the same energy in a 90 second call compared to 24 hours at some distance from a mast. I can believe this...


2 things to note.

Firstly, it's making a huge assumption about the mechanics of any harmful effect. Is harm simply dependent on the amount of energy absorbed? Perhaps prolonged exposure causes more damage than short bursts, in which case a mast on your roof would be more dangerous? Or perhaps it's the other way round - maybe we're immune below a certain threshold, above which damage starts being caused, in which case a mast would be less dangerous than a phone. Without identifying the actual mechanism, you simply can't say. So for Orange to imply the risks are the same is flawed logic. But it gets them a good soundbite...

Secondly, government guidelines clearly recommend children should only use mobile phones in an emergency. This means even a 90 second call is too much. If they're happy to admit that 24 hours near a mast is the same as 90 seconds on the phone, then there's a clear contradiction allowing masts on top of houses where children might live.

Dear Editor

[I understand that you have a 250-word limit. If you have to cut this letter, please take those sections that you consider of most concern to your readership. Thanks]

I'm writing in response to your article 'Radiation Risk on the Roof' (Evening Post, 4th Nov). I find it particularly arrogant of the Orange spokesperson to assert that 90 seconds on a mobile is equivalent to 24 hours in front of a mast. She's clearly not up to speed on research showing that the body's recovery processes which restore balance to one's system quite quickly after such a short call have absolutely NO chance of maintaining such balance under a 24-hour exposure, even at far lower signal strength - there's just no respite for those in the radiation field of a mast 24/7. She also shouldn't be making such wild claims without acquainting herself with replicated research findings showing significant reduction in melatonin production - essential for both sleep regulation and as an anti-cancer agent - for those exposed to such emissions for extended periods at night, as people living near to a mast are. It's no coincidence that both sleep disorders and incidence of a variety of cancers are significantly higher in the vicinity of masts according to a number of studies.

Those conversant with the weight of evidence showing health risks from mast emissions can only give a hollow laugh at the 'reassurance' that the NRPB are monitoring the situation - remember the confident claims of government departments over BSE? As for the BMA claim that there's evidence that they're perfectly safe, that just doesn't make sense. The only evidence possible from research studies is on whether or not specific effects have been observed to a significant degree - to be 'perfectly safe', EVERY possible effects would have to have been tested for, a logical impossibility.

On the contrary, the EU-funded 'Reflex' study, conducted over a period of more than four years by twelve partner institutions from seven countries, concluded that in respect of radiation as emitted from both phones and masts "... there exists no justification any more to claim, that we are not aware of any pathophysiological mechanisms which could be the basis for the development of functional disturbances and any kind of chronic diseases in animal and man." In other words the claim that there's no way that this type of radiation could cause illness no longer holds water. This followed results replicated by a number of the partner institutions showing single and double-strand DNA breaks of the sort that lead to cancer at levels of radiation within our government's 'safety guidelines'.

Come off it Vodafone and Orange. The future may be bright for mobile phone operators under the government's 'Fire away, that's OK' policy, but the cancer clusters in the main beams of masts across the world speak far more eloquently than any ill-informed vested-interest spokesperson for those who gain big bucks while others suffer.

Bristol Cancer Cluster in Flats (Vodaphone and Orange Mast)

Your article of 4th November 2006, “Radiation on the Roof”, moved me so much that I felt compelled to write despite the fact that I am trying to recover after an enforced move from my home where TETRA, 2G and 3G emissions penetrate most areas of my flat and made me quite unwell.

Berkley House is yet another example of the increasing clusters of ill-health across the UK attributed to all technologies using pulsed microwave radiation which includes mobile phone masts, TETRA etc

As the founder member of Mast Sickness UK, I know of many such sites with masts on the roofs of residential flats, offices, industrial units, hospitals, schools and churches. There are also clusters of antennae on sports grounds and in residential areas across the UK. All those I have heard of are also associated with clusters of ill- health, many with higher than average cancer rates which are regarded by authorities as anecdotal evidence.

The scientific proof of harm has been presented to various bodies countless times but it remains discredited or ignored by those with the power to change things, yet the incidents of “anecdotal evidence” keep rising at an alarming rate.

I speak to many people who are unwell around this technology and they have worked out by trial and error over a period of time what is actually making them ill, many after undergoing various medical tests. None wished to blame this new technology which liberates us and gives us so much pleasure but many now have to avoid it, if they can, and cannot use it! There is a growing number of people who have become sensitive to pulsed microwave radiation, just as some are sensitive to electrical frequencies, or others to chemicals, pollen etc.

The wisps of this man-made smog are now becoming a multi –layered blanket of pollution of a new kind that we cannot see and only those who are sensitive to it can feel. Where there is smoke we should look for the fire before it becomes an unquenchable inferno.

All these poor people in Berkeley House, or any others affected, can do is to seek some form of protection or ask their MP to lobby the Government about this growing problem.

I can advise on where protection can be obtained or help in other simple ways.

Glos hat Recht: Kündigungsschutz ist reformbedürftig

#Die Linkspartei.PDS: Pressemitteilungen

05. November 2006

Das Vorpreschen des Bundeswirtschaftsministers zur Reform des Kündigungsschutzes kommt zur rechten Zeit meint Harald Werner, Mitglied des Parteivorstandes der Linkspartei.PDS und gewerkschaftspolitischer Sprecher. Er erklärt:

Nicht nur bei der Allianz, auch bei vielen anderen Konzernen mit zweistelligen Renditeraten folgte in den vergangenen Monaten auf die Vermeldung des Rekordgewinns die Ankündigung von Massenentlassungen. Es ist deshalb höchste Zeit, den Kündigungsschutz so zu verändern, dass es tatsächlich vor ungerechtfertigten Kündigungen schützt. Betrieben, die schwarze Zahlen schreiben, müssen eindeutige Grenzen für die Verwendung ihrer Gewinne gezogen werden, weil unsere Verfassung zwar das Eigentum schützt, aber gleichzeitig die Bedingung setzt, dass seine Verwendung dem Allgemeinwohl dienen muss. Dieser Verfassungsgrundsatz ist bei Herrn Glos offenbar in Vergessenheit geraten. Wer den Kündigungsschutz beseitigen und das Heuern und Feuern zum Grundprinzip erheben will, steht aber nicht nur mit dem Grundgesetz, sondern auch mit der Realität auf dem Kriegsfuß. Die Beseitigung des Kündigungsschutzes beseitigt nicht die Arbeitslosigkeit, sondern Arbeitsplätze. Die höhere Flexibilität des Beschäftigungssystems führt lediglich zu einem schnelleren Wechsel zwischen Beschäftigung und Entlassung, nicht aber zu mehr Arbeitsplätzen. Wer das nach dänischem Vorbild will, muss aber auch dänische Verhältnisse schaffen. Die arbeitslosen Dänen finden im System des Heuerns und Feuerns nicht nur schneller neue Arbeit, sie bekommen auch ein Arbeitslosengeld, das bis zu 70 Prozent des letzten Nettoentgelts ausmacht.

Jeb Bush's executive order and 9-11

by Devvy Kidd

Some will say it was just a coincidence, just like the biggest voting mess in a presidential election ever witnessed in this country just also happened to take place in the candidate's brother's state (brother Jeb, Florida) who also serves as governor. And, the candidate, George Bush, is also the governor of one of the biggest states of the Union! Gee, what a coincidence.....

It’s that simple. When American troops are being killed by the dozen, when the country you are occupying is threatening to break up into smaller countries, when you have militias and death squads roaming the streets and you’ve put a group of Mullahs in power- execute the dictator.
