Contractor Deaths in Iraq, Afghanistan Tops 1,000

The number of US-paid private contractors in Iraq now exceeds that of American combat troops, newly released figures show, raising fresh questions about the privatization of the war effort and the government's capacity to carry out military and rebuilding campaigns, the Los Angeles Times T. Christian Miller reports in an expose on the lucrative business of war.

Attorneys See Irony in Libby Case

The Associated Press' Matt Apuzzo reports that President Bush knew exactly what he was getting when he made Reggie B. Walton one of his first picks for a seat on the federal bench in 2001: a tough-on-crime judge with a reputation for handing down stiff sentences. "A former deputy drug adviser, federal prosecutor and Superior Court judge, Walton seemed a perfect fit for the new president," Apuzzo writes. "And Walton didn't disappoint, proving to be exactly the kind of no-nonsense judge Bush was looking for. Until now. When erasing former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby's 2 1/2-year prison term in the CIA leak case, Bush said Walton was being too harsh."

Once Upon America

John Cory provides a sobering reality check on how the Fourth of July "with its parades and "what America means to me" essays, and picnics and fireworks, and all those pretty speeches about freedom and democracy and the true meaning of Independence Day" is "all a facade. A lie." Modern America now spies on its citizens, conducts warrantless wiretaps, suspends habeas corpus, creates "free speech zones" to corral protestors out of sight of sensitive royal eyes, and politicizes the very justice system meant to protect people's rights by turning it into a fraternity of God-fearing Republican conservatism.

Im Atomkraftwerk Krümmel sank bereits der Wasserstand im Reaktordruckbehälter

Nach dem tagelangen Brand im Atomkraftwerk Krümmel gerät dessen Betreiber Vattenfall Europe zunehmend in die Kritik. Nach Angaben der Reaktoraufsicht war es bei der Schnellabschaltung nach dem Trafo-Brand am 28. Juni "durch ein unplanmäßiges Öffnen von zwei Sicherheits- und Entlastungsventilen zu einem schnellen Druck- und Füllstandsabfall im Reaktordruckbehälter" gekommen, in dem sich die Brennelemente befinden. Außerdem war eine von mehreren Speisewasserpumpen ausgefallen. Offenbar hat man gerade noch mal Glück gehabt: "Es war trotzdem jederzeit genügend Wasser über den Brennstäben", sagte Ministeriumssprecher Oliver Breuer.

Hochmut kommt vor dem (Vatten)Fall

Zur fortgesetzten Pannenserie bei Atomkraftwerksbetreiber Vattenfall erklärt das Mitglied des Parteivorstandes Wolfgang Methling:

Innerhalb nur weniger Tage hat Stromriese Vattenfall mehrfach gezeigt, dass er weder den „Faktor Technik“ noch den „Faktor Mensch“ bei der Nutzung der Kernenergie ausreichend im Griff hat. Verschleiern, verzögern, dementieren... Und letztlich immer wieder die unheilvolle Bestätigung, dass die Atomkraft so leicht nicht beherrschbar ist. Nicht für Vattenfall, nicht für andere. Deshalb kann es nur einen konsequenten Schritt geben: Abschalten. Davon geht in Deutschland kein Licht aus.

by Lynn Stuter

Ron Paul hit the nail on the head when he stated, to the ire of Rudy Giuliani, that you do not do this type of thing to other nations without expecting blowback. To even think that there won’t be blowback is arrogant, indeed. The American taxpayers cannot understand why people of other nations hate America.

Polizeisondereinheit entscheidet Kriegswaffeneinsatz im Inneren

4. Juli 2007

Vermischung von Polizei und Militär ist grundgesetzwidrig

Katina Schubert

Zur Forderung mehrerer Unions-Innenminister, die Bundeswehr auch im Innern einzusetzen, erklärt die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Katina Schubert:

Die Bekämpfung des Terrorismus ist Angelegenheit der Strafverfolgungsbehörden und damit der Polizei. Sollte die Polizei nach Auffassung der Innenminister mit dieser Aufgabe überfordert sein, gleicht das einem Offenbarungseid. Nach Bundeskanzlerin Merkel hat Bundesinnenminister Schäuble nun Unterstützung bei den Unions-Innenministern der Länder gesucht und gefunden. Seit Monaten versucht er unter dem Vorwand der Terrorismusbekämpfung den Einsatz der Bundeswehr im Innern hoffähig zu machen. Zum G8-Gipfel wurde gezeigt, wie so ein fragwürdiger Einsatz aussehen könnte. Strafverfolgung und Prävention sind Aufgabe von Justiz und Polizei, nicht des Militärs. Eine Vermischung von Polizei und Militär ist grundgesetzwidrig. Auf die zunehmende Militarisierung der Außenpolitik, die wir bekämpfen, darf nicht noch die Militarisierung der Zivilgesellschaft folgen. Die permanente Forderung nach Bundeswehreinsätzen im Innern verunsichert die Bürgerinnen und Bürger und soll ein gesellschaftliches Klima für entsprechende Gesetzesänderungen schaffen. Mit Terrorabwehr hat das ebenso wenig zu tun wie die ständigen Bestrebungen nach allumfassender Überwachung der Bürgerinnen und Bürger. Eine entsprechende Verfassungsänderung ist mit der LINKEN nicht zu machen. Wir brauchen keine neuen Notstandgesetze.

Another Reason to IMPEACH, the Weasel Pardon of Libby

Many of you have written to ask us when we were going to call for the impeachment of Bush as well as Cheney. Of course we have done Bush impeachment action pages before, and were focusing on Cheney on the premise that he was not only the least popular, but also the most guilty. But now Bush has thrown himself in the middle of the worst of the Cheney scandals, and so we have launched a new action page calling for the impeachment of them both.

IMPEACH BOTH: //www.usalone.com/impeach_both.php

If you were looking to submit something to reiterate your call for impeachment, please submit the page above as this is a NEW joint action.

The ink was barely dry on the order DENYING bail on appeal to convicted White House felon Scooter Libby, before president Bush intervened to "commute" his sentence. It is very well possible that NEVER before in the history of American jurisprudence had anyone sentenced to prison received such a commutation BEFORE serving a single day of that sentence.

Cheney and Bush conspired together to give Libby an escape hatch. This was their contingency plan all along, to game our legal system with every frivolous defense imaginable, knowing all along they would subvert justice in the end to whatever extent necessary. Who are the people celebrating this gross miscarriage of justice, as they dance on the grave of our Constitution?

IMPEACH BOTH: //www.usalone.com/impeach_both.php

The Department of Justice's own guidelines specify that to apply for a commutation a convict MUST first have started to serve their sentence AND have abandoned all appeals. Scooter Libby has done neither. Bush has again abused his office to shield Cheney and himself from further exposure of their own impeachable offenses, as would happen were Libby finally compelled to testify truthfully, as was Judith Miller by her own incarceration.

This is nothing but a weasel pardon, a premeditated obstruction of justice. Indeed, there is nothing to prevent Bush from further granting Libby a full pardon in January of 2009, as he no doubt PLANS on doing, UNLESS both he and Cheney are impeached first. More than sufficient evidence of their constitutional crimes is already a matter of public record. There is no oversight they have not unilaterally defied. And now this, from an execution happy governor of Texas who once MOCKED a woman who begged him only for life in prison.

Bush asserts that the Libby prison sentence was excessive. But will he change the law and the guidelines which fairly call for the sentence handed down based on the severity of Libby's crimes? No he will not. Instead with the equivalent of a signing statement he has again selectively nullified the will of the people and their representatives in Congress. The only thing excessive here is the way Cheney and Bush continue to shred the Constitution.

Once again there has been no accountability. Whatever fine was left in place will be paid from the millions and millions in Libby's defense slush fund, or else he get some fat consultant job from a right wing contributor who that just happens to pay him the entire sum and more. He'll probably make a tidy profit on the whole affair.

But this is all yet more gasoline on the fire of the rapidly expanding impeachment movement. Votes in the National Cheney Impeachment Poll were already more than 80,000 as to Cheney standing alone. Their administration is a walking constitutional crisis that can no longer be avoided.

IMPEACH BOTH: //www.usalone.com/impeach_both.php

There is one and only one remedy, that can't be vetoed, signed away or tossed out by the courts, and that is impeachment. Congress needs to hear from enough of us all at one time until they understand that. Look at how quickly Congress did an about face on the immigration bill when they were flooded with calls and emails. That is what must happen also here.

And then they will most surely act.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

Protect Sequoia National Forest from ORVs

Take Action

The trees of Sequoia National Forest are legendary, the largest in the world. This forest is nothing short of spectacular, and deserves our highest protection. With more than 1,500 miles of roads already in place on the forest, it's quite surprising that the Forest Service would be proposing to open more than 5,500 acres of roadless areas to off-road vehicles, including the Dry Meadow/Long Valley area.

To preserve the wild character and fish and wildlife habitat of this forest it is essential that no new motorized trails be allowed.
