Libby: Don't Release Grand Jury Tapes

Former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby is fighting to keep his grand jury testimony about the leak of a CIA operative's name from being released and broadcast. Libby's grand jury testimony - the sworn statements he gave investigators about his conversations with Vice President Dick Cheney and journalists - is at the heart of his perjury trial. Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald plans to play hours of recordings of that testimony in court next week to bolster his case that Libby lied and obstructed the investigation.

Justifications for Attacking Iran on Shaky Ground

The Bush administration is stepping up its confrontation with Iran, accusing the Islamic regime in Tehran of supplying arms to Shiite Muslim militias in Iraq for attacks on US forces. But the White House's failure to document its case, its acute credibility deficit, and a new US intelligence finding that outside meddling is "not likely" a major cause of the bloodshed are raising questions about President Bush's intentions.

Dissent of an Officer

Carolyn Ho was at her apartment that overlooks Kaneohe Bay on the windward side of Oahu, on another enviable evening of silk-shirt temperatures, when the phone rang. It was New Year's Day 2006. Her son, Ehren, was calling from Fort Lewis, near Tacoma, Washington, where he was stationed as an artillery officer in the US Army. She assumed he was calling to wish her a happy New Year. He had something else on his mind. He told her he was opposed to the war in Iraq and was going to refuse to deploy there.

Petition to Eradicate the Law of Stoning

A message from Janice

Please read this letter and sign the petition.

Sophia D.


My name is Soheila Vahdati and I am the International Public Relations Coordinator for the Stop Stoning Forever campaign. It is great to hear from you and learn that you are supporting the campaign and willing to help us. I think that stoning to death for adultery is a form of honor killing that is administered by the state. What we need most is to spread the word about stoning in the world, raise awareness, and eventually collect signatures in objection to this inhuman practice.

We have a petition on our website:

We would very much appreciate your help in collecting more signatures for this petition. As you sign the petition, a copy of your letter is sent the the Head of Judiciary and another copy is sent to the parliament leader. In the case you could write in local papers, etc. about this campaign, please send us a copy of your article and we'll post it on the website, too.

Many thanks again, Soheila

White House Refuses to Take Action Against Global Warming

Despite a strongly worded global warming report from the world's top climate scientists, the Bush administration expressed continued opposition Friday to mandatory reductions in heat-trapping "greenhouse" gases.

Ask the Governor to protect us from drinking water contamination

A message from Sophia

Please write a letter to help the Pacific Rim. URL below. Cross Post widely and forward. Thanks for your help.


Safe drinking water is a basic need for all Californians. Despite this, polluters have leaked the top chemical in rocket fuel (perchlorate) into the drinking water supplies of more than sixteen million Californians.

Now big polluters are trying to convince Governor Schwarzenegger to ignore the danger that rocket fuel contamination poses to newborn babies and pregnant women and let them off the hook for cleanup.

Let the Governor know that you want him to protect the health of all Californians from drinking water contamination. Then ask your friends and family to help by forwarding this email on to them.

To take action click on the link below or paste it into your Web browser:


Perchlorate is a component of rocket fuel that contaminates water supplies for approximately 20 million people in California, Arizona, Nevada, and Mexico.

Tiny amounts of perchlorate, the equivalent of a few drops in an Olympic-sized swimming pool, can result in serious health problems. At greatest risk are pregnant women. According to studies released by the Centers for Disease Control and the United States Environmental Protection Agency, perchlorate can interfere with essential body hormones and brain development in the womb and in some cases lead to attention deficit disorder and learning disabilities in young children.

To date, perchlorate has polluted more than 400 drinking water wells in California. The Kerr-McGee perchlorate factory in Henderson, Nevada has also leaked over a million pounds of the toxin into Southern California's Colorado River water supplies. In addition, contamination also plagues dozens of communities, including the cities of Rialto, Colton, Pasadena, San Gabriel Valley, Redlands, Santa Clarita, Sacramento County, Simi Valley, Beaumont, and San Martin.

Despite the threat that perchlorate contamination, polluters are urging Governor Schwarzenegger to let them off the hook. In memos to the media, meetings with decision-makers and on web sites, polluters are urging decision-makers to ignore the health effects of perchlorate on pregnant women and young infants and set a final drinking water standard for perchlorate that does not protect them. They've even hired the same public relations firm that worked for Phillip Morris to downplay the health dangers of second hand smoke.

Please take a moment to email urging Governor Schwarzenegger to set a final standard for perchlorate in drinking water that protects all Californians, including pregnant women and newborn infants.

Thorpe's double phone mast fight


03 February 2007 09:05

Families are being urged to fight plans for two phone masts in Thorpe, just weeks after campaigners defeated another mast in the area.

T-Mobile wants to install a 12m monopole, plus telecommunications equipment and cabinets, on the island at the junction of the Ring Road and Pound Lane, opposite Sainsbury's.

Pre-application consultation is continuing until February 9 on plans by Vodafone to put six dishes on the existing St William's Way mast, to improve its mobile phone network in the area.

Campaigner Andy Street, 69, of Eastern Avenue, Thorpe, said: “My main concern is that people in the area don't seem to know about the plans.

“I'm urging people to get in their comments to the councils as soon as possible. Neighbours tell me they are getting a petition together but letters have more credence. With the help of the Evening News, we managed to get plans for a similar phone mast in Dussindale turned down, and we can do it again.”

Thorpe town councillor Peter Harwood, a governor of St William's Primary - close to the St William's Way mast, - said: “I'm particularly concerned about the plans for the St William's mast, because I don't think it requires planning permission. People should be writing to Broadland council, because it has a duty of well-being. The fear of illness can be just as debilitating as the real thing.

“It's regrettable that phone companies are still determined to go ahead, despite residents' objections.”

Last December, Broadland District Council refused an application by 3, formerly Hutchison 3G, to put up a 22.5m phone mast on land off Pound Lane in Thorpe.

Comments on either plan can be sent to Thorpe Town Council, before February 12, and Broadland District Council up until February 15.

Autism....Dr. Perlmutter's Blog/"Autism"....Mueller response 2-2-07

Joanne C. Mueller Says: [ - Dr. Perlmutter's Blog - Response to topic "Autism" -- re TV exposure question re causality....... ]

February 2nd, 2007 at 9:15 pm

The above site lists EMF’s (electromagnetic fields) as TOXIC.

Certainly sitting or standing very close to a TV for extended periods of time would not be good.

However, the issues surrounding reduction of Melatonin and restoration of circadian rhythm, etc. — adverse effects of improper sleep all related to sleeping close to electrical items at night is “a major concern!!”

Electric and gas meters, ANY electric clock, monitors, fans, touchlamps, lamps with dimmer switches, power supply boxes for games and cordless phones, and much more including but not limited to improper wiring or waterpipes carrying currents over or under beds are all potentially deadly depending upon proximity and amount of chronic prolonged exposure.

Night after night of improper sleep/lack of sleep contributes to every health problem from poor sleep to cancer.

I am a non-accredited EMF/EMR researcher with over 15 years’ experience as a victim myself (high voltage powerlines only 50 ft. from front of our house), grandmother of two boys diagnosed w/rare immune deficiencies AND research in my own home exposing guinea pigs to our back bedroom wall — exactly where our children slept while growing up and our grandchildren after that (daycare).

Bottom line: when “close sleeping exposures” were reduced, lab results confirmed improvement that was also being observed and documented.

Similar circumstances re guinea pig exposures, however, one out of each set of two guinea pigs tragically died within 30 days’ exposure.

The guinea pigs’ tests revealed a “collapse of immune function” — severe neutropenia and lymphocytosis!!!

I moved my husband’s electric clock radio. He had been diagnosed w/Alzheimers about two years ago.

My husband is now said not to have Alzheimers!! He is, however, still suffering moderate to severe memory and cognitivie impairment.

I believe the electric clock radio increased damage I did not know was occurring due to taking statins.

While this part of my commentary may not seem to pertain to concerns re autism, additional research I have done re certain vitamins and supplements indicate persons need to be very aware that, under circumstances of chronic EMF/EMR exposure — particularly when one’s body is trying to restore circadian rhythm/function of hormones, etc., even Vitamin C can become a free radical.

My concerns relate both to things consumed during the prenatal period but also anything prescribed for newborn, toddlers, or children or persons of any age regarding a combination of exposures that have the potential to wreak havoc on particularly the central nervous system.

While this website is important and interesting, I do not think the EMF issue is being given the serious attention needed in order to help the persons the government is trying to keep “uninformed.”

I am also concerned when a specific request is made to contact Dr. Perlmutter directly and the only response is “waiting for your comment on the blog!!!”

Best wishes to all for better health!!! Joanne C. Mueller, Guinea Pigs R Us, 731 - 123rd Ave. N.W., Minneapolis, MN 55448-2127

Mobilfunkmast: Eltern schlagen Alarm

KULMBACH – Gegen eine „Aufrüstung“ des bestehenden Mobilfunkmastes auf dem Dach der ATS-Tennishalle machen Eltern der Kulmbacher Realschüler mobil. Rund 250 Meter von der Realschule und deren Sportanlagen entfernt will der Anbieter O² zusätzlich zu den bestehenden sechs Sendern von Vodafone drei weitere UMTS-Sender aufstellen und auch T-Mobile interessiert sich für den Standort. Durch diese zusätzliche Strahlenbelastung befürchten die Eltern gesundheitliche Beeinträchtigungen der Schulkinder.

„Die angegebenen Strahlenwerte von 3,14 Prozent des Grenzwertes, die für die Realschule vorliegen, scheinen niedrig. Jedoch können schon bei weit niedrigeren Werten Gesundheitsprobleme auftreten wie Konzentrationsprobleme, Lernstörungen, Kopfschmerzen, Schwindel oder Nervosität. Die Strahlenschutzkommission gibt Empfehlungen, besonders für Kinder. Warum tut sie dies, wenn es keinen Grund zur Besorgnis gibt, wenn diese Technologie unschädlich ist“, gibt die Elterninitiative zu bedenken.

Alle Interessierten lädt die Initiative deshalb für kommenden Donnerstag ab 19.30 Uhr zu einer Infoveranstaltung mit Siegfried Zwerenz, Vorstandssprecher des Dachverbandes der Bürger und Initiativen zum Schutz vor Elektrosmog, in die ATS-Stadiongaststätte ein. In verschiedenen Arztpraxen, Apotheken und Geschäften liegen zudem Infomaterial und Unterschriftenlisten aus, in die sich Gegner weiterer Mobilfunkanlagen auf dem Dach der Tennishalle eintragen können.
