Justiz-, Polizei- und Politikkreise in kriminelles Netzwerk verstrickt?

Medienberichten zufolge sind hohe Justiz-, Polizei- und Politikkreise in Sachsen in ein kriminelles Netzwerk größeren Ausmaßes verstrickt. Den Berichten zufolge machten sich laut sächsischem Verfassungsschutz höchste Leipziger Kreise erpressbar, weil sie Anfang der 1990er Jahre in einem Bordell verkehrt haben sollen, in dem minderjährige Mädchen zur Prostitution gezwungen wurden. Mit dem vom sächsischen Verfassungsschutz offenbar jahrelang ausgespähten kriminellen Netzwerk soll sich nun auch Generalbundesanwältin Monika Harms befassen, damit nicht der Eindruck aufkommt, es würde etwas vertuscht.


Liberalisierungsdruck: Warnung vor "wirtschaftlichem Ausverkauf Afrikas"

Mehrere Nicht-Regierungsorganisationen aus Europa sowie aus Afrika, der Karibik und dem pazifischen Raum (AKP-Staaten) warnen angesichts der Tagung des EU-Ministerrats vor einem "drohenden wirtschaftlichen Ausverkauf Afrikas". Die Organisationen Brot für die Welt, Evangelischer Entwicklungsdienst, Oxfam Deutschland, WEED und andere fordern insbesondere die deutsche Ratspräsidentschaft auf, "den derzeitigen Zuschnitt regionaler Handelsabkommen, der so genannten "Economic Partnership Agreements" (EPAs), zugunsten nachhaltiger und gerechter Alternativen zu korrigieren". Ein "durchgesickerter" Entwurf der EPA-Abschlusserklärung des Ministerrates zeige, dass die EU entgegen offizieller Verlautbarungen unverändert auf eine umfassende Marktöffnung der armen Länder setze.

At Least 11 Members of Congress Now Under Investigation

While Congress has been busy this year dealing with issues such as the Iraq war, the US attorney firings controversy and the federal minimum wage, some members have had their attention diverted by legal problems. By our count, 11 members of Congress (and ten former members who departed with the 109th Congress) are currently the subjects of ongoing criminal investigations.


Keep Out the Vote

Michael Winship writes: "What's the real motive for knocking off those eight, now nine, maybe more, US attorneys - Republican appointees all - apparently replaced for insufficient fealty to the Bushie party line? In part, the truth may be lurking in the upcoming 2008 elections."



"Surge" Detainees Strain Iraq's Jails

The capture of thousands of new suspects under the three-month-old Baghdad security plan has overwhelmed the Iraqi government's detention system, forcing hundreds of people into overcrowded facilities, according to Iraqi and Western officials.



Of Actions and Consequences, Torture and Troops

William Rivers Pitt writes: "Recall, for context, our national debate over torture, renditions, and the rights of prisoners captured in the 'War on Terror.' Recall the secret memos, endorsed by then-White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales, that slapped aside Geneva Convention prohibitions against the torture of prisoners. Recall Abu Ghraib, and the shameful photos documenting the absence of those prohibitions in living, bleeding color. It was theoretical at the time, that debate, an exercise in nationalist rhetoric and sound-bite showmanship. It isn't theoretical anymore."

World Bank Report: Wolfowitz Broke Rules

World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz broke bank rules in arranging a hefty compensation package for his girlfriend, a situation that has caused a "crisis in the leadership" at the institution, according to a report released Monday by a special bank panel. Wolfowitz is scheduled to make an appearance before the board today.



Republicans Unnerved by Paralyzed Presidency

Private conversations with Republicans throughout America reveal doom and gloom about a politically paralyzed presidency and party. The on-the-record observations are almost as bleak. "The country doesn't believe George W. Bush, it doesn't trust him, and with 19 months to go, it's only going to get worse," predicts Ed Rollins, a Republican strategist who ran Ronald Reagan's 1984 presidential campaign.

Cindy Sheehan and 32 Antiwar Protesters Arrested

After rallying in Lafayette Park across the street from the White House, more than 250 antiwar advocates marched through Washington, DC to Capitol Hill. As the demonstrators marched up Independence Avenue, they chanted, "Stop the Funding, Stop the War – Mothers Say, Not One More." At the Department of Justice, the crowd stopped, with Cindy Sheehan making an impromptu speech pointing out the crimes of the Bush administration. As 33 were arrested, the crowd chanted, "Arrest George Bush" and "Stop the Funding, Stop the Killing."



Mothers arrested protesting war

by Kevin Zeese


After rallying in Lafayette Park across the street from the White House more than 250 anti-war advocates marched through Washington, DC to Capitol Hill. When they reached the Cannon House Office Building they formed two circles blocking the street to all traffic. The demonstration was the ‘Mother of a March’ spearheaded by Cindy Sheehan whose son died in Iraq. The march kicked off a ‘Summer of Action’ where anti-war demonstrators will SWARM on Congress from today until June 31 advocating an end to the war. Numerous speakers urged peace voters to put ‘peace before partisanship’ as thus far the Democrats have not lived up to the mandate of the voters who elected them to end the war...

Mission accomplished for Iran

Independent Institute
by Ivan Eland


With its usual tin ear for public relations, the Bush administration provided another ‘Kodak moment’ of incompetent belligerence by yet again sending a high-level administration official to use an aircraft carrier as a prop for a hawkish rant. Vice President Dick Cheney did manage to refrain from displaying another ‘Mission Accomplished’ banner during his address to the crew of the John C. Stennis, stationed 150 miles off Iran’s coast. But as Cheney warned Iran against disrupting oil transportation routes or getting nuclear weapons, the speech’s imagery also reminded the American public of President Bush’s previous fiasco on another aircraft carrier. Yet Cheney’s speech may have more adverse implications for U.S. security than Bush’s earlier public relations disaster...

More bureaucracy, less security

by US Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)


Congress voted this past week to authorize nearly $40 billion for the Department of Homeland Security, but the result will likely continue to be more bureaucracy and less security for Americans. Five years into this new department, Congress still cannot agree on how to handle the mega-bureaucracy it created, which means there has been no effective oversight of the department. While Congress remains in disarray over how to fund and oversee the department, we can only wonder whether we are more vulnerable than we were before Homeland Security was created. I was opposed to the creation of a new Homeland Security department from the beginning. Only in Washington would anyone call the creation of an additional layer of bureaucracy on top of already bloated bureaucracies ’streamlining’...

More than one crisis at World Bank

Christian Science Monitor


Whether Paul Wolfowitz remains president of the World Bank or not, the furor over his leadership raises questions about the importance of reforming the policies and structure of an institution born more than 60 years ago, at a time of very different global financial needs. Does the bank still need to make loans to middle-income countries, for instance, given the rivers of investment capital that now flow around the world? Does the tradition of allowing the United States to name the bank’s president make sense any longer? Does the bank even need to continue to exist? ‘The good thing about this crisis is that the US government may realize it has to pay more attention to these international financial institutions,’ says Colin Bradford, a senior fellow for global economics and development at the Brookings Institution. ‘It’s not enough to just put your guy in there’...

Arbeitsbedingungen bei Aldi-Zulieferern in China und Indonesien

„Discountunternehmen stehen mittlerweile an der Spitze des Textileinzelhandels. Jede zweite Kundin kauft Bekleidung bei Discountern wie Aldi, Plus und KiK. Der Autorin der Studie (Ingeborg Wick vom SÜDWIND Institut) ist es gelungen, über die Zulieferer des Familienunternehmens, das seine Geschäftsdaten gerne völlig unter Verschluss hält, Skandalöses herauszufinden. Ergebnis: Bei chinesischen und indonesischen Aldi-Zulieferern werden Arbeitsrechte in bisher kaum bekannten Ausmaß verletzt! So müssen z.B. in China Beschäftigte wochenlang auf ihre Löhne warten. Schulen kassieren von den Fabriken Gelder für die Vermittlung von minderjährigen Beschäftigten.

Notes on Cultural Renaissance in a Time of Barbarism

By James Petras

We live in a time of imperial-driven destructive wars in the name of 'democracy', savage exploitation in the name of 'emerging world powers', massive forced population displacement in the name of 'immigration' and large-scale pillage of natural resources in the name of 'free markets'. We live in a time of barbarism and the barbarian elites employ an army of linguistic and cultural manipulators to justify their conquests.



They Hate Us For Our Hypocrisy

By Eugene Robinson

The Bush administration says that its zero-tolerance policy against terrorism applies to all suspected evildoers, not just Muslims, and that its zero-tolerance policy against Cuba is a principled position, not just an exercise in pandering to the implacable anti-Castro exiles in Miami. On both counts, evidence suggests otherwise.

Interesting! It should be noted that on Montel the other day, they reported some cities already having "Clusters" of illness, and it just so happens these cities are WiFi enabled.

Seattle for instance, has an entire blanket cluster of Fibromyalgia. If I am not mistaken, many people have already linked this disease to EMF/EMR and is a environmental issue. Seattle was one of the first cities in the USA to go WiFi, and if this doesn't send up a big warning signal, I don't know what will!

Understanding The Threat to Dietary Supplements

by Byron Richards

Your right to have free access to safe and highly effective dietary supplements is under an intense multi-pronged FDA attack. On May 14, 2007 the Supreme Court sided with the FDA by deciding not to hear the case of Nutraceutical v FDA, letting stand a federal appeals court ruling that permits the FDA to use drug-related risk/benefit analysis to determine if a nutrient is safe. This is the exact same point the FDA is trying to get put into law through Senate bill S.1082 and HR.1561, which consumers have flooded the Senate on over the past few weeks. And it is the same point the FDA is seeking to help implement on an international basis through Codex.......

Call the harmful technologies by their true names

One of the points I make in my lectures has to do with the naming of things by what they are or what they are not, 'False-negative names".

NOTE: Always pay close attention when something is named by what it is NOT! This occurs when the namer has something to hide and is engaged in sleight-of-mind, a mental trick, against the public.

Why would a corporation call energy it promotes "nonionizing radiation" when it could call it more accurately "radiofrequency radiation"? Why would a group describe RF absorption levels "nonthermal" when there IS heat deposition, and they could call the levels more correctly "microthermal"? Why would one call weapons "nonlethal" when they were more properly called "direct-energy" or "electromagnetic" weapons?

Here's why: because public relations firms advised the corporations promoting these technologies to do so, in order to convey SAFETY to the public mind, SAFETY that is actually HARM.

When engineers and others read "nonionizing" and other false-negative names, they don't even QUESTION whether the technologies might be harmful! When the suggested mechanism of harm is denied even in the name of a thing, engineers can't even think that there might exist another mechanism of harm.

When you see these false-negative names, always turn it around and call the harmful technologies by their true names!
