The Democrats' Iraqi Dilemma

Ira Chernus of writes: "Pity the poor Democratic candidates for president, caught between Iraq and a hard place. Every day, more and more voters decide that we must end the war and set a date to start withdrawing our troops from Iraq. Most who will vote in the Democratic primaries concluded long ago that we must leave Iraq, and they are unlikely to let anyone who disagrees with them have the party's nomination in 2008."

Big Government Grover and the Fund Manager Subsidy

"While people with middle class jobs like teachers and firefighters typically pay a 25 percent tax rate, and higher-paid professionals like doctors and lawyers pay a 35 percent rate, fund managers are taxed at just a 15 percent rate on their earnings," writes Truthout's Dean Baker.

Career Colonel an Unlikely Adversary of Detainee Hearings

"Stephen E. Abraham's assignment to the Pentagon unit that runs the hearings at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba seemed a perfect fit. A lawyer in civilian life, he had been decorated for counterespionage and counterterrorism work during 22 years as a reserve Army intelligence officer in which he rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel," writes William Glaberson of The New York Times. "In June, Colonel Abraham became the first military insider to criticize publicly the Guantanamo hearings, which determine whether detainees should be held indefinitely as enemy combatants."

Vast Enron-Like Fraud Probe Abandoned by Justice Dept.

"Two years into a fraud investigation, veteran federal prosecutor David Maguire told colleagues he'd uncovered one of the biggest cases of his career," writes Marisa Taylor of McClatchy Newspapers. "Maguire described crimes 'far worse' than those of Arthur Andersen, the accounting giant that collapsed in the wake of the Enron scandal. Among those in his sights: executives from a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, the investment empire overseen by billionaire Warren Buffett."

England Under Water: Global Warming Linked to Increased Rain

Michael McCarthy reports for The Independent UK, "Heavier rainfall in Britain is being caused by climate change, a major new scientific study will reveal this week, as the country reels from summer downpours of unprecedented ferocity."

With Iraq on Fire, Bush Puts Rest of World on Hold

Warren P. Strobel and Nancy A. Youssef report for McClatchy Newspapers: "As the White House struggles to show progress in the 52-month-old war, other important global issues increasingly are getting pushed to the side ... 'Canceling a meeting here or there may not seem like a big deal, but the slights are piling up,' Asia expert Walter Lohman of the conservative Heritage Foundation wrote recently."

The Assault on Due Process and Civil Liberties

Ian Welsh writes for FireDogLake: "Civil liberties and due process have been under relentless assault for nearly 40 years now in the US. The War on Terror, for all that it has had horrible human rights and civil liberties abuses enacted in its name, would not have been possible without the preceding War on Drugs. What many seem to not realize is that the rights lost by one person are lost by everyone. When some 'terrorist' or 'trafficker' loses his or her rights, so do you."

Reid: Democrats Will Press Ahead on Iraq Pullout

"Senate Democrats vowed Sunday to press ahead with legislation on pulling US troops from Iraq, despite a major defeat last week in their efforts to pass a bill," reports Agence France-Presse.

Will Bush invade Pakistan?

by Justin Raimondo

Congress is finally going to defund a repressive and increasingly unpopular U.S.-backed government that is currently engaged in a losing conflict with Islamic radicals and is endangered by rising anti-Americanism in the country. The current regime is not among the most liberal in the world and is weak, at best, enjoying more support in Washington than anywhere else. In spite of billions in American aid, the country appears to be on the verge of breaking up, with independent tribal chieftains and various clans, not the ‘central government’ run by Washington’s sock-puppets, holding the real power. No, this isn’t about Iraq — it’s about Pakistan, where al-Qaeda has carved out an enclave, reportedly in the wilds of Waziristan, and where the ‘experts’ are saying Osama bin Laden has probably fled...

Bush’s torture ban is full of loopholes

by David Cole


Once upon a time, a U.S. official’s condemnation of torture was a statement of moral principle. Today, it is an opportunity for obfuscation. We have learned that when President Bush says, ‘We don’t torture,’ it’s important to read the fine print. So it was once again on July 20, when Bush issued a long-awaited executive order purporting to regulate interrogation tactics used by the CIA in the ‘war on terror.’ According to a White House press release, the order provides ‘clear rules’ to implement the Geneva Conventions governing treatment of detainees in wartime — rules the administration insisted did not even apply to the ‘war on terror’ until the Supreme Court ruled otherwise last summer. But while the new rules reflect a significant retreat by the administration from its initial torture policies, they are anything but ‘clear,’ come far too late in the day, and in any event are unenforceable...

Bush's Latest Executive Order and Jurisdiction

by Devvy Kidd

No where in the U.S. Constitution does it authorize a president or Congress the authority to steal from the people's treasury to fund humanitarian efforts or nation building. Humanitarian efforts should and are funded through private organizations. The fact that there's never enough money is the fault of these dictators, potentates and crooks running these countries. New world order advocates like William Kristol, who cares nothing for the U.S. Constitution, is a favorite on FAUX (FOX) News......

Call Congress Today for Impeachment



We all know the bad news, which is that the Cheney administration is determined to commit even more gross and outrageous abuses of power until finally Congress stands up and confronts them. But the good news is that the mounting public pressure is having an effect and John Conyers confided that if three more members of Congress sign on to the call for impeachment he will initiate proceedings. That's all they are waiting on . . . for enough of us to speak out to make it happen.


Your voice can make a real difference right now, by letting your own representatives in Congress know that you expect them to do their constitutional duty and put an end to the crimes of the White House. And there are so many impeachable crimes, they commit new ones day by day. To try to hide their wrongdoing they are obstructing justice in every possible way, ordering their cronies to refuse to testify, defying Congressional subpoenas, which would be impeachable offenses standing alone.

The action page above is a voting page, with already over 90,000 submissions. Would it surprise you to know that 99.19 percent of the vote so far have been Yes to impeach? Unless Congress acts now, we shudder to think what unimaginable further damage the White House dictatorship will inflict on our democracy in the next 18 months. They are desperately clutching power and it is not too far-fetch to ask if they will stage a terrorist attack (or do NOTHING to stop one) for the purpose of imposing martial law and gutting our Constitution altogether.

We have seen an endless stream of executive orders in the last couple months that purport to grant the president unlimited powers in just such an event. These orders are so broad and ambiguous that any disruption anywhere in the world might be used as a pretext for the Constitutionally unthinkable. They literally presume to write sweeping legislation in the form of administrative directives, a further expression of their inherent contempt for the role of Congress.

The courts will not save us. This was demonstrated again this week when a loyal Bushie threw out the civil law suit of Valerie Plame without even a hearing on the merits. There is only one thing that can save us. Your voice. If and only if YOU will click a mouse one time to send your vote to Congress on the question of impeachment, then and only them can we get the additional three members of Congress to take action, and once the process begins there will be no stopping it.

Some have asked why take action against Cheney first. It is not just that he is the least popular, he is also the most guilty. Already a majority of the American people support his impeachment, by even the most conservative pollsters. And of course once Cheney impeachment reaches critical mass, his puppet Bush will be pulled in by the same trail of evidence. But if you would rather call for both of them to be impeached at once, there is an action page for that too.


Take action now. Raise your voice. Join the hundreds of thousands who are starting to speak out in this time of great Constitutional peril, perhaps the most sinister threat our democracy has ever faced.


And please also consider making a donation to Dennis Kucinich, without whose leadership on the issues none of this might have been able to happen. He is the one who put forward H.Res. 333 when nobody else had the Constitutional integrity to even raise their hand.


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.
