Resist Canadian Church-and-State-subsidized Genocide


Hidden from History: The Canadian Holocaust

The Untold Story of the Genocide of Aboriginal Peoples by Church and State in Canada


To: Government of Canada, Revenue Canada




"This documentary reveals Canada's darkest secret - the deliberate extermination of indigenous (Native American) peoples and the theft of their land under the guise of religion. This never before told history as seen through the eyes of this former minister (Kevin Annett) who blew the whistle on his own church, after he learned of thousands of murders in its Indian Residential Schools..."

While Congress voted for war …

by Kevin Zeese


While the Senate was voting 51-46 to approve $95 billion more in war funding, in a bill that included a loophole ridden withdrawal plan, inside the Hart Senate office building more than 75 anti-war demonstrators participated in a dramatic demonstration. … The demonstration was dramatic because anti-war activists are getting angrier at the congress and the president for extending the war rather than ending it. A wide range of groups came together to support the Hart demonstration and the various influences in the anti-war movement — military families, vets, peace activists among them — were seen in the action...



Missile defense obsession lessens US security

Independent Institute
by Ivan Eland


President Bush’s plan to deploy missile defenses in Central Europe will reduce U.S. security, not enhance it. Installing radar for tracking incoming missiles in the Czech Republic and anti-missile interceptors in Poland could do more harm than good. Ostensibly, the European radar and interceptors are aimed at the future threat of nuclear-armed Iranian missiles. But Russia suspects — perhaps with good reason — that the real purpose of the deployments is to cement the security guarantees the United States has given to the two former Russian allies. In addition, Russia fears, also with justification, that the missile defenses could be augmented someday and used against Russian missiles...



Nothing compares to what’s under way today

Mother Jones
by Julia Whitty


Scientists recognize that species continually disappear at a background extinction rate estimated at about one species per million species per year, with new species replacing the lost in a sustainable fashion. Occasional mass extinctions convulse this orderly norm, followed by excruciatingly slow recoveries as new species emerge from the remaining gene pool until the world is once again repopulated by a different catalog of flora and fauna. From what we understand so far, five great extinction events have reshaped Earth in cataclysmic ways in the past 439 million years …. Today we’re living through the sixth great extinction, sometimes known as the Holocene extinction event. We carried its seeds with us 50,000 years ago as we migrated beyond Africa with Stone Age blades, darts, and harpoons, entering pristine Ice Age ecosystems and changing them forever by wiping out at least some of the unique megafauna of the times, including, perhaps, the saber-toothed cats and woolly mammoths. When the ice retreated, we terminated the long and biologically rich epoch sometimes called the Edenic period with assaults from our newest weapons: hoes, scythes, cattle, goats, pigs. But as harmful as our forebears may have been, nothing compares to what’s under way today...

Imams’ airline case: Clash of rights, prejudice, security

Christian Science Monitor
by Alexandra Marks


In this age of global terrorism, some cherished American values — like the right to pray, and say what you think — are clashing in unprecedented ways. Take the controversy over six imams who were removed from a US Airways flight last October, and their recent decision to sue for discrimination — not just the airline and its employees, but also some passengers who complained about their preflight behavior. At the heart of the controversy are Americans’ concern about terrorism, ignorance about Islam, and constitutional guarantees of freedom of religion and speech. In the middle are the airlines, which are charged with the difficult task of sorting out legitimate complaints about unusual behavior from those based on prejudice and fear of people’s appearance — and to do it in a short period when dealing with a particular flight...

Hedging disaster

The American Prospect
by Robert Kuttner


This past week, even jaded observers of Wall Street were startled to learn that last year’s top hedge fund manager, James Simons of Renaissance Technologies, made $1.7 billion in 2006. Alpha Magazine reported that the top 25 hedge fund earners garnered an average of $570 million in 2006, up from $362 million in 2005. The burgeoning hedge fund and private equity industries are both a cause and a symptom of a dangerously lopsided America. Because they are private (not listed on stock exchanges or offering shares to the public), these funds do not have to disclose their inner workings to regulators or to the public. Yet these unregulated funds are increasingly buying and selling some of our largest corporations, stripping assets, piling on debt, leaving employees and subsequent buyers to dig out of a deep hole...



Duck and cover

In These Times
by William D. Hartung & Frida Berrigan


Only days before the fifth anniversary of September 11, President George W. Bush addressed military officers in Washington to warn that nuclear-armed terrorists could ‘blackmail the free world and spread their ideologies of hate and raise a moral threat to America.’ This alarmist vision was accompanied by the White House’s release of ‘A National Strategy for Combating Terrorism,’ which painted a picture of a ‘troubling potential WMD terrorism nexus emanating from Tehran.’ The administration is building the case for war against Iran — a job made easier by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s recent announcement that Iran can now enrich uranium on an industrial scale — despite the fact that many Iran-watchers and nuclear experts consider their claims of enrichment capacity to be an overblown boast...

Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy

by Christopher Preble


The Iraq war is the issue of greatest concern for Democratic primary and caucus voters, especially among the young people and first-time donors flocking to Obama. Clinton’s recent struggles can be tied directly to her vote for war in October 2002, and to her ambivalence on the war effort as it has degenerated. Asked how her views toward the war have evolved over the past four years, Sen. Clinton has explained that she is not sorry for voting as she did; she only regrets ‘the way the president used the authority.’ Her response sheds some light on how she would use the military as commander-in-chief, and it suggests that she has learned little from America’s unfortunate experience in Iraq...

The sham of the Padilla trial

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger


Jury selection in the Jose Padilla case is now under way in federal district court in Miami, but the trial is nothing more than a sham. Why? Because no matter how the jury rules, Padilla is almost certain to remain incarcerated for a long time. If Padilla is convicted by the jury, the judge will likely sentence him to serve much of the rest of his life in a federal penitentiary for having conspired to violate federal criminal laws against terrorism. On the other hand, if Padilla is acquitted, the U.S. military is likely to exercise its post-9/11-acquired power to declare Americans (and foreigners) ‘enemy combatants’ in the war on terror and throw Padilla back into a military dungeon. That is where he was before the government, as part of a clever legal maneuver that was obviously designed to avoid Supreme Court review of Padilla’s request for habeas-corpus relief, converted him from an ‘enemy combatant’ in the war on terror to a federal-court criminal defendant charged with violating federal terrorism laws...

Civilization in free-fall

by Butler Shaffer

Our civilization is experiencing more than a ’slow social suicide,’ but is more in a state of free-fall. A vibrant society is one that encourages the production of life-sustaining values — which include a respect for the inviolability of the lives and property interests of one another, a condition that becomes synonymous with peace. America, however, is a nation in a constant state of war, not only with the rest of the world, but with itself. What condition that people-pushers are quick to identify as a ’social problem,’ does not carry with it proposed legislation to forcibly restrict how others are to live their lives? For reasons largely explainable as a reaction to the increased decentralization that threatens the institutional order, our formal systems — as well as those who take direction from them — are becoming increasingly sociopathic.”

Rice says president won't let Congress set Iraq benchmarks

Boston Globe


Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that President Bush will reject any attempt by Congress to require the Iraqi government to meet benchmarks as a condition for US troops remaining in Iraq, in a blow to emerging efforts to craft a compromise war-funding bill. Bush, who plans this week to veto a measure that would require a troop withdrawal to begin by this fall, wants a bill that gives American officials complete flexibility in conducting military and diplomatic efforts in Iraq, Rice said. ‘What we don’t want to do … is to tie our own hands so that we cannot act creatively and flexibly to support the very policies in Iraq that we’re trying to enforce,’ she said on ABC’s This Week...

Rachel's News #904


Obama the Interventionist


In the Sunday, April 29th issue of The Washington Post, Robert Kagan, co-founder of neo-conservative "Project For A New American Century," used his bully pulpit at the paper to heap lavish praise upon Illinois Democratic Senator Barack Obama for a speech on U.S. foreign policy that the latter delivered to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs late last week.

Kagan, a prominent "neo-con", noted many of Senator Obama's positions on U.S. foreign policy, for whatever minor disagreements he has with them, are not much different from what he supports: bigger defense budgets, increasing the size of the military, an endless "war on terrorism," and "pre-emptive military action" to defend "our vital interests."

Families' fears over city Wi-Fi

30 April 2007 10:12

The city's pioneering wireless network was introduced by “stealth”, according to families who say they were given no choice over having transmitters near their homes.

The criticism comes as a national debate rages over concerns that the wireless technology may pose a health risk. Wi-Fi networks emit radiation in the same way as mobile phones and masts, and campaigners are calling for comprehensive research to be undertaken into the impact they have on health.

The transmitters, installed in Norwich city centre as part of the £1.1m Norfolk OpenLink project launched in August last year, are rated at 0.1 watts. This is reasonably low compared to the average mobile handset, which emits radiation pulses up to 2W.

Norfolk County Councillor Andrew Boswell, who has been contacted by several families worried about the proximity of transmitters to their homes, said people have a choice about owning a mobile phone - but not about the siting of Wi-Fi transmitters.

“The residents were very concerned for all sorts of reasons and not knowing what the health risks were,” said Mr Boswell.

“The transmitters aren't very powerful, but if we get a full-blown scheme the power will be increased, and Ofcom could potentially allow them up to 10W. I think they should do the consultation they should have done in the first place and wherever a transmitter is they should make it clear to the residents they have put the transmitter there and speak with them about their concerns and reassure them. They have been very cavalier in the way they have carried out this project in respect of people's health.”

Norwich is one of the first places in the country to have a free Wi-Fi service, with more than 200 aerials attached to lampposts providing coverage so people can log on to the internet through laptops anywhere in the city.

Ann Carey, project director for Norfolk Openlink, said: “It is important to stress from the outset that the project complies with all current health and safety standards.

“We certainly would not have implemented the project if there had been any proven risk on the safety of Wi-Fi and presently there is no guidance from the Department of Health and other professional bodies that says Wi-Fi is unsafe. We gained formal approval from cabinet before proceeding with the project and have also kept members of the county council updated throughout the process. Members could have scrutinised the proposals, but did not do so.”

Recent research has shown radiation from mobiles and masts could be linked to cancer in people living nearby.

It is believed the Professional Association of Teachers will this week write to Education Secretary Alan Johnson to demand an official inquiry because of its own concerns over Wi-Fi.

The networks are banned in Salzburg in Austria, while Stowe School, in Buckinghamshire, removed Wi-Fi from part of its buildings after a teacher developed headaches and nausea.

Last November, Dr Ian Gibson, a long-time supporter of the Evening News Put Masts On Hold campaign and a cancer expert, said he wanted more research to be done on wireless technology after some schools elsewhere in the county ditched their wireless networks.

Children warned over laptop computers:

Children should be discouraged from putting their laptops on their lap when using wireless internet connections because of potential health risks - an expert has warned.

Professor Lawrie Challis, who heads the committee on mobile phone safety research, said youngsters should be monitored as public concern continues over emissions from wi-fi networks.

He said children should be kept a safe distance from the embedded antennas on wi-fi enabled laptops until more research is carried out.

“With a desktop computer, the transmitter will be in the tower,” he said. “This might be perhaps 20cms from your leg and the exposure would then be around one per cent of that from a mobile phone.”

But he said if a laptop was placed straight on the lap when using wi-fi, people could be around 2cm from the transmitter, and receiving comparable exposure to that from a mobile phone.

“Since we advise that children should be discouraged from using mobile phones, we should also discourage children from placing their laptop on their lap when they are using wi-fi,” he said.

In 2005 the Health Protection Agency (HPA) published a report - Mobile Phones and Health 2004 - which supported the need for future research of all new technologies including wi-fi.

The organisation said in a statement: “Wi-fi devices are of very low power much lower than mobile phones. The HPA and (our chairman) Sir William Stewart have always pressed for more research into these new technologies.”

The popularity of presidential candidates in opinion polls at this stage of the campaign is almost completely a function of name-recognition or how much media coverage they have already received or purchased from the liberal media.
