Libby Testimony Points Directly to Bush, Cheney

According to trial transcripts obtained by Truthout, former White House staffer I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby testified before a grand jury in 2004 that Vice President Dick Cheney instructed him to divulge portions of a then-classified report to New York Times reporter Judith Miller. Libby testified that Cheney said authorization to leak a section of the report had come directly from President George W. Bush, the court transcripts state.

Questioning Vaccines is not "Fueled by Ignorance"

by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, DO

But vaccine injuries are real despite claims that occurrences are rare. Fears of developing autism as a result of vaccination have been dismissed by mainstream medicine which prefers to attribute the increase incidence of autism, currently at 1 in 166 children, to a “better diagnosis.” Thimerosal (mercury) in vaccines has received much attention in the association with autism. Undoubtedly, many children have.....

From Afghanistan to Iraq: Connecting the Dots With Oil

Richard W. Behan writes: "The long-held suspicions about George Bush's wars are well-placed. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were not prompted by the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington. They were not waged to spread democracy in the Middle East or enhance security at home. They were conceived and planned in secret long before September 11, 2001, and they were undertaken to control petroleum resources."

Democrats Try Again to Stop Troop Escalation

As Senate Democrats seek votes on capping troop numbers and funding for Iraq, they may use the pending bill on the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission as a vehicle, setting up a replay of the debate over funding for troops that this week derailed their leadership-backed non-binding resolution on Bush's "surge" proposal.

Boxer Rips EPA Chief as Bowing to Industry

California Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer ripped the Environmental Protection Agency's top official Tuesday for rules changes that could limit the input of scientific advisers into agency decisions and reduce public access to information about toxic substances in communities. Boxer accused EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson of bending to the wishes of industry, rather than protecting public health.

Bombs over Baghdad: The Pentagon's Secret Air War in Iraq

A secret air war is being waged in Iraq -- often in and around that country's population centers -- about which we can find out little. The U.S. military keeps information on the munitions expended in its air efforts under tight wraps, refusing to offer details on the scale of use and so minimizing the importance of air power in Iraq. But expert opinion holds that the forms of aerial assault being employed in that country, though hardly covered in our media, may account for most of the U.S. and coalition-attributed Iraqi civilian deaths there since the 2003 invasion. While some aspects of the air war remain a total mystery, Air Force officials do acknowledge that U.S. military and coalition aircraft dropped at least 111,000 pounds of bombs on targets in Iraq in 2006.

You mast the point

You report that the mobile phone mast in Akers Way has been moved 40 metres away from its original position (SA, February 1).

I don't think the residents of Manor Crescent should get the champagne out just yet, though. If your article is correct, it will still be only 85 metres from people in Manor Crescent.

The 10-year Naila study by doctors in Germany found a threefold increase in the risk of malignant tumours in people living within 400 metres of a mast. Another (Israeli) study discovered a fourfold increase in cancer within 350 metres, and a tenfold increase specifically among women, compared to people living away from the mast.

We have good reason to fear the spread of these masts, particularly with regard to our children who are particularly vulnerable to radiation. Their brains are still developing and undoubtedly there will be trouble ahead unless mast proliferation is better controlled.

The dangers are not confined only to cancer. Other problems have been found, including headaches, dizziness, depression, fatigue and poor concentration - just what our children need as they try to cope with the demands of our education system.

If I lived in Manor Crescent, I would demand that the mast be moved at least a further 600 or 700 metres away. Then the champagne corks could really pop.

Can our species survive?

No Force, No Fraud

02/03/07

There are times when I think our species is hopeless. In my fellow humans, I see high energy, bountiful creativity, and splendid innovation. I see that in our personal dealings, almost all of us treat each other with respect and fairness. We are superbly capable and talented beings, yet we have one flaw that is very likely to destroy our species if we don’t recognize it and dispense with it. We, as individual beings, are so willing to live in subjugation to others. We eagerly subject ourselves to territorial governments that abuse us no end. We also humbly accede to a variety of mystical claimants seeking our obedience and worship...

Bush's unbelievable lack of understanding of the problem and any realistic solution

Legalization now!

As I listened to the President’s speech on the War on Drugs, I was astonished at his unbelievable lack of understanding of the problem and any realistic solution. It would seem with his own history of drug use, he openly admits to a past drinking problem, and with that of his daughters and niece, Mr. Bush might actually understand. He, in one sentence proposes spending 19 Billion dollars on the failed War on Drugs, including over 9 Billion for interdiction, then a scant minute later states: ‘As long as there is a demand for drugs in this country, some crook is gonna figure out how to get ‘em here’...

The military budget that President Bush released is much bigger than the official summaries let on

It’s time to sharpen the scissors

Slate
by Fred Kaplan

02/05/07

The military budget that President Bush released today is much bigger than the official summaries let on. It’s not $481.4 billion, as the Defense Department is claiming. No, a squint through the fine print of the White House and Pentagon budget documents reveals that the true request for new military-spending authority comes to $739 billion. Measured in real terms (that is, adjusted for inflation), that’s about one-third higher than the previous record for U.S. military spending, set in 1952, when more than 30,000 American soldiers were dying in the Korean War and the Pentagon was embarking on its massive Cold War rearmament drive...

Europäische Integration hat seit Maastricht für viele Bürger zu wachsender sozialer Unsicherheit geführt

#Die Linkspartei.PDS: Pressemitteilungen

07. Februar 2007

Heute vor 15 Jahren unterzeichneten die Staats- und Regierungschefs der damals 12 Mitgliedstaaten der Europäischen Gemeinschaften im niederländischen Maastricht den Vertrag über die Europäische Union. Aus diesem Anlass erklärt das Mitglied des Parteivorstandes Helmut Scholz:

Betrachtet man den Maastrichter Vertrag aus heutiger Sicht, so ist sein Beitrag zur europäischen Integration zwiespältig: Einerseits war erkannt worden, dass die Herausforderungen der Globalisierung nicht nur wirtschaftliche, sondern auch politische Integration erfordern. Dem wurde mit der Schaffung der EU als Staatenverbund entsprochen, jedoch waren und sind die praktischen Ergebnisse sowohl was den Inhalt betrifft als auch die vertraglichen Grundlagen und Institutionen nicht auf der Höhe der Zeit. Andererseits wurde durch die Wirtschafts- und Währungsunion ohne Sozialunion eine neoliberale Entwicklungsrichtung zementiert, die dazu führte, dass die Schere zwischen Arm und Reich in der EU immer größer wurde. Das Grundprinzip einer offenen Marktwirtschaft mit freiem Wettbewerb führte nicht nur zu gnadenloser Konkurrenz zwischen den Mitgliedstaaten im Bereich der Beschäftigungs- und Sozialpolitik, sondern zugleich zur Unterminierung und schrittweisen Beseitigung ihrer sozialstaatlichen Sicherungssysteme, jahrzehntelang erkämpft von der Arbeiter- und Gewerkschaftsbewegung. Und leider veranschaulicht das Ansteigen von Rechtsextremismus, Rassismus, Nationalismus und Gewalt in ganz Europa auch wachsende Bedrohungen für die Rechtsstaatlichkeit. Das Grundübel des Maastrichter Vertrages und seiner Nachfolger einschließlich des EU-Verfassungsvertrages besteht darin, dass sie die vertraglichen Grundlagen für eine Politik maximaler Profite der Großkonzerne und Großbanken legen, die Bedürfnisse aller hier lebenden Menschen aber viel zu wenig berücksichtigen. Die europäische Integration seit Maastricht hat für sehr viele Bürgerinnen und Bürger zu einer direkten Verschlechterung ihrer Arbeits- und Lebensbedingungen und zu wachsender sozialer Unsicherheit geführt. Das löst nicht nur Fragen und Irritationen zum europäischen Projekt" aus, sondern lässt sie richtigerweise auch an seiner Ausrichtung zweifeln. Das haben auch die Volksentscheide in Frankreich und den Niederlanden zum EU-Verfassungsvertrag gezeigt: eine solche Politik gehört abgelehnt. Deshalb ist es auch notwendig, die Logik und die Substanz des EU-Verfassungsvertrages zu verändern: nicht Festschreiben einer neoliberal geprägten Wirtschaftsordnung und Militarisierung von Politik sind die Lösung für die Überwindung der Krise im europäischen Integrationsprozess. Sie sind vielmehr das eigentliche Problem! Europäische Integration wird nur dann erfolgreich sein, wenn in ihrem Mittelpunkt die realen Bedürfnisse von Mensch und Natur stehen, wenn die Bürgerinnen und Bürger, alle hier und heute auf unserem Kontinent lebenden Menschen real gefragt sind, das Zusammenleben in Europa konkret auszugestalten; wenn sie über die weitere Entwicklung der EU entscheiden können. Dafür kämpft die Linkspartei.PDS und mit ihr viele Verbündete in Parteien und Bewegungen in Deutschland, in der EU und in ganz Europa. Der Maastrichter Vertrag stellte die bisher größte Vertragsänderung seit den Römischen Verträgen dar. Mit ihm wurde aus einer Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft ein Staatenverbund mit einer konzipierten Wirtschafts- und Währungsunion (1.Säule), einer Gemeinsamen Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik (2.Säule) und einer Zusammenarbeit in der Innen- und Rechtspolitik (3.Säule), der zugleich eine Union der Mitgliedstaaten als auch der Bürgerinnen und Bürger (Unionsbürgerschaft) sein sollte. Die PDS hat damals den Maastrichter Vertrag abgelehnt, weil er zwar eine Union von Mitgliedstaaten und Bürgerinnen und Bürgern begründete, vor allem aber die Bürgerinnen und Bürger weitgehend von der Mitentscheidung und Mitgestaltung der Politik der Europäischen Union ausschloss. Die wirtschaftliche Integration wurde über die Währungsunion realisiert, die auf ausschließlich monetären Kriterien beruhte. Mit der Europäischen Zentralbank wurde zudem eine Institution geschaffen, die ausschließlich der Preisstabilität verpflichtet ist, keiner Kontrolle unterliegt und aufgrund der Abgabe der nationalen Souveränität in der Währungspolitik gravierenden Einfluss auf die nationalen Ökonomien hat. Eine Sozialunion wurde von vorn herein ausgeschlossen.

Who's Funding Global Warming?

Wearing hats shaped like smokestacks and carrying signs that said, "Coal Investments Cook the Climate," a group known as Billionaires for Coal raised awareness last week about the plans by TXU, a Dallas-based utility company, to build eleven pulverized coal-fired power plants in Texas. The activists delivered suitcases of coal, but the recipient of their gift was not TXU, and they were a long way from Texas. Instead, their action took place in New York's financial district, where they visited the headquarters of Merrill Lynch - a company that is putting coal and profits above human health and climate change.

Another nail in the US dollar's coffin

Growing political instability in the US will weigh heavily on the dollar during 2007. This weight, combined with growing political pressure for dollar devaluation and a slew of negative economic factors, is likely to prompt significant dollar depreciation against most other currencies. The dollar's decline will help send asset values in the US sharply lower and precious metals prices soaring.

Branding Enemies: Creating Battlefields

By Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

During the Cold War, the two super powers realized that there was no logic in engaging militarily given that each had the benefit of resorting to nuclear weapons, thus, with the exception of a few proxy wars, their ‘war’ became a war of propaganda to win over minds and hearts. Today, the Bush White House is following the same pattern of warfare replacing communism with Islam. However, much like everything else this administration embarks on, the disastrous consequences of this war have not been deliberated.

Letter to Congress Revised to Respond to New Holt "Voter Confidence" Bill

Please sign (or help revise) this letter to Congress by emailing me your name, address and credentials or affiliations. We have over 200 signees so far.

California has all other states beat by far.

The Letter to Congress was revised tonight to:

1. Stress citizen oversight at the top of the letter, and

2. Respond to the inadequacies of the Holt tiered election audit.

//electionarchive.org/ucvInfo/US/Letter2Congress.pdf

It has a couple more end notes and an altered paragraph or two.

Thanks to Arthur Keller for helping to make some earlier revisions this a.m., which made it easier for me to revise this now.

Please let me know if the letter to Congress still needs any revisions before tomorrow which is the last day I'll be doing any revisions. And Thursday is the last day I'll be adding any new signatures before my trip back East where I'll visit DC and pass the letter out a little to Congress.

A link to Holt's bill, so you can read it yourself, is here:

//www.bradblog.com/Docs/HoltBill_FinalDraft_020507.pdf

There are a lot of mischaracterizations of Holt's bill being spread, so read it.

Holt's best provision is that it requires and funds jurisdictions to replace DRE voting systems that do not use voter verified paper ballots as the initial ballot of records, with ballots of archive weight for the official ballots, and which provide voter anonymity.
(thus requiring the replacement of all DRE voting systems which are paperless or use paper rolls and do not meet any of those requirements).

The worst oversight of the Holt bill is the lack of citizen oversight which means that none of its other provisions would be effective.
