Bush's Troop Cuts Would Be Symbolic

Matthew Lee and Anne Gearan of the Associated Press report, "Bush's senior advisers on Iraq have recommended he stand by his current war strategy, and he is unlikely to order more than a symbolic cut in troops before the end of the year."

Ramadan Giving Presents Dilemma for American Muslims

William Fisher writes for Truthout, "As the mid-September Ramadan fast approaches, many American Muslims are in a quandary about how to fulfill their Quranic obligation to contribute to charity - since the US government has closed down and frozen the assets of many of the leading philanthropies that have traditionally championed Muslim causes, for providing 'material support' to terrorist organizations."

Wednesday, Sep 5 may be the last day you can act before the House vote on "The Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act" (HR811). If you have not already, please find just a few minutes to send a fax or email your Representative.

HR811 will ensure that the voters determine who controls Congress and the Presidency in 2009. Do not have to tell your children someday that democracy ended and that you did nothing. A few minutes of your time is all that is needed now to protect our futures at this critical juncture in history.

SOME ORGANIZATIONS SUPPORTING HR811

Among the election reform groups supporting HR811 along with The National Election Data Archive are Verified Voting, VoteTrustUSA, Vote PA, The Electronic Frontier Foundation, The Brennan Center, People for the American Way, NC Coalition for Verified Voting, Sarasota Alliance for Fair Elections (SAFE), Common Cause, Concerned Voters of Centre County (PA), Save Our Votes (MD), Citizens for Election Integrity
(MN), Iowans for Voting Integrity, and Voting Matters/Oregon.

OTHER INFORMATION

Verified Voting's comments on HR811:

"The most basic elements of the bill remain intact – 2008 requirements for paper ballots as an independent means of verifying electronic vote tabulation, random mandatory audits, disclosure of voting system software, tighter security of electronic voting systems, emergency paper ballots in case of machine failures, provision of funding to enable jurisdictions to upgrade to accessibly verifiable paper-based voting systems, and the establishment of an arm's length between voting machine vendors and testing laboratories. These reforms are important, and must be enacted as soon as possible. Therefore VerifiedVoting.org continues to support H.R. 811."

An article on HR811 by the Electronic Frontier Foundation "Crunch Time for E-Voting Reform" //www.eff.org/deeplinks/archives/005421.php

You may remind your US Representative that there is plenty of time, as well as funding, for states with paperless electronic ballot voting machines to replace them before the 2008 November election and conduct manual audits.

HERE IS A SAMPLE LETTER YOU COULD COPY AND PASTE TO A WORD PROCESSOR AND THEN FAX TO YOUR REPRESENTATIVE:

Dear Representative -----------

Please vote "Yes" on House Resolution 811 and vote "No" on the "unfunded mandate" amendment to it that would gut the requirement for paper ballots and manual election audits in 2008. Here is an easy-to-read, understandable analysis of HR811's provisions: //electionarchive.org/ucvAnalysis/US/Analysis-HR811-Aug2007.pdf

It is time for all 50 States to have verifiably honest accurate elections - and taxpayers deserve more economical voting systems.

Many states have no paper ballots, and even more have no audits of their elections - never comparing voter verifiable paper records with the unofficial vote counts; and many use inaccurate voting systems which have been decertified or scrapped states such as CA, MD, FL,...; leaving them with no way to judge the integrity of their vote counts and electoral process.

The United States needs "The Voter Confidence & Increased Accessibility Act" (H.R. 811).

Together with the $300 Million authorized by the House, States have $1.6+ Billion available in remaining HAVA funding and can afford to meet the 2008 deadlines. See how much money your state has left of HAVA funding on pp. 8 and 9 in the US Election Assistance report //www.eac.gov/docs/Congressional%20Report%20Public%20Release%20Final.pdf

There is plenty of time for states with paperless electronic voting systems to replace them with auditable voting equipment. See how long it takes States to replace voting systems in Verified Voting's "How Long Does it Take to Change a Voting System?" //electionmathematics.org/em-voting-systems/VotingSystemChange.pdf

Fifty Years Later, Lamenting State of Civil Rights Division

Greg Gordon reports for McClatchy Newspapers: "Several ... former civil rights lawyers expressed fears that the Bush administration has tainted the division's legacy by rolling back voting rights enforcement, bringing few employment discrimination lawsuits on behalf of African-Americans and diverting appellate lawyers to immigration cases. The Senate Judiciary Committee will conduct a hearing Wednesday to observe the 50th anniversary and hear concerns from civil rights leaders that the division has become partisan, allegedly trampling on minorities' rights rather than protecting them."

Jesse Jackson writes for The Chicago Sun Times: "This nation faces a clear choice this September.

That is on top of the $147 billion already pending for Iraq and Afghanistan this year, and that’s on top of the $460 billion annual military budget."

Mercury: Setting The PATTERN In Stone For Non-Detoxification

Here's a new study on mercury.

1: Neuro Endocrinol Lett. 2006 Aug, 27(4):415-23.

Mercury toxicity presenting as chronic fatigue, memory impairment and depression:diagnosis, treatment, susceptibility, and outcomes in a New Zealand general practice setting (1994-2006).

Wojcik DP, Godfrey ME, Christie D, Haley BE.Northland Environmental Health Clinic, 2 Dip Rd, Kamo, Whangarei, Northland, New Zealand. wojcik @wave.co.nz

In a group of 465 patients diagnosed as having chronic mercury toxicity (CMT), 32.3% had severe fatigue, 88.8% had memory loss, and 27.5% had depression. A significant correlation was found between CMT and the Apo-lipoprotein E4 genotype (p=0.001). An investigation into an additional 864 consecutively seen general practice patients, resulted in 30.3% having evidence consistent with CMT, and once again a significant correlation was found with the APO-E4 genotype (p=0.001). Removal of amalgam mercury fillings when combined with appropriate treatment resulted in a significant symptom reduction (p<0.001) to levels reported by healthy subjects.

PLANS to erect a mobile phone mast near homes in Woodhall Park have been refused.

T-Mobile had applied for early approval to put up the three-antenna mast and associated equipment on the footbridge over Westfield Way.

Yesterday Swindon Council officers rejected the plans and Moredon councillor Colin Lovell has said he is starting a campaign to get mobile phone mast legislation changed.

BioInitiative: Konsortium aus Top-Wissenschaftlern fordert drastisch tiefere Grenzwerte

Der Tatort „Strahlende Zukunft“ am letzten Sonntag war schon brisant [ //freepage.twoday.net/stories/4196710/ ], aber hinter dem Artikel der heutigen Stuttgarter Zeitung „Elektromagnetische Felder zu stark“ über den Bericht der „BioInitiative Working Group“ zum Einfluss elektromagnetischer Felder auf die Gesundheit steckt noch mehr Brisanz [ //omega.twoday.net/search?q=BioInitiative ]. Hinter dieser Meldung versteckt sich ein dramatischer Appell führender Wissenschaftler zur Senkung der Strahlenbelastung. Auf 600 Seiten wird der weltweite Stand der Forschung dargestellt. Mitautor aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum ist Prof. Dr. Michael Kundi, Universität Wien [ //omega.twoday.net/search?q=Michael+Kundi ]. Das Facit der Studie : was im Tatort scheinbar überzeichnete Krimi-Realität war – es entspricht den Tatsachen. Der Beweis für die Gefährlichkeit der Mobilfunkstrahlung ist längst erbracht. Wie werden unsere grenzwertberuhigten Politiker und Lobbyisten jetzt reagieren? In der Presseerklärung der Wissenschaftler heißt es u.a.:

„Der Bericht liefert detaillierte wissenschaftliche Informationen über Einflüsse auf die Gesundheit, wenn Menschen elektromagnetischer Strahlung ausgesetzt sind... Die Autoren überprüften mehr als 2000 wissenschaftliche Studien und Literaturübersichten und schlossen daraus, dass die derzeit gültigen öffentlichen Sicherheitsgrenzwerte für den Schutz der öffentlichen Gesundheit untauglich sind. Vom gesundheitspolitischen Standpunkt aus sind neue öffentliche Sicherheitsgrenzwerte und Grenzwerte für die weitere Einführung von Risikotechnologien auf der Basis des Beweismaterials gerechtfertigt.“

„Drahtlose, auf Mikrowellenstrahlung gestützte Technologien zum Senden von E-Mails und zur Übertragung von Gesprächen strahlen Tausende Male stärker als die Strahlungsquellen, die in Studien gesundheitliche Auswirkungen zeigten. Länger andauernde hochfrequente Strahlung und Mikrowellenstrahlung von Mobil- und Schnurlostelefonen, Mobilfunkantennen, WLAN und anderen drahtlosen Technologien hängen zusammen mit Symptomen wie Kopfschmerzen, Müdigkeit, Schlaflosigkeit, Schwindel, Veränderungen der Gehirnaktivität und Störungen der Konzentration und des Gedächtnisses. Wissenschafter berichten, dass diese Effekte im Falle einer täglichen Strahlungsexposition schon bei sehr tiefen Expositionsniveaux auftreten können. Kinder sind dabei besonders empfindlich für Umwelteinflüsse jeglicher Art.“ „Effekte werden genannt bezüglich DNA-Schäden (Genotoxizität, die direkt mit der Integrität des menschlichen Genoms zusammenhängt) [ //omega.twoday.net/search?q=DNA-Schäden ], Zellkommunikation, zellulärem Stoffwechsel und Reparaturmechanismen, Krebsüberwachung innerhalb des Körpers....“. Die gesamte Untersuchung steht (auf Englisch) im Internet unter: bioinitiative.org

Für die Bürgerinitiativen in Deutschland ist dieser Bericht eine Bestätigung, dass ihr Protest zum Schutz der Bevölkerung vor der unkontrollierten Mobilfunk -Bestrahlung voll berechtigt ist und verstärkt werden muss. Dieser Bericht ist aber auch eine Aufforderung an alle kritischen Bürger, sich diesem Protest anzuschließen. Die Politik ist aufgefordert, endlich zu handeln.

Advisers tell Bush to stand pat on Iraq

Morganton News Herald

09/05/07

President Bush’s senior advisers on Iraq have recommended he stand by his current war strategy, and he is unlikely to order more than a symbolic cut in troops before the end of the year, administration officials told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The recommendations from the military commander in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus, and U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker come despite independent government findings Tuesday that Baghdad has not met most of the political, military and economic markers set by Congress...

Iraq's war of the warlords

The desolating reality is that Iraq has devolved into a collection of separate cities and regions ruled by sectarian or criminal militias - and the warlords who command the men with guns -- Iraq has been sundered into separate fiefdoms and has descended into Somalia-style warlordism, there is no identifiable enemy over whom President Bush may claim victory. There are now many different wars in Iraq, but none that America can win.

On the face of it, there is no connection between Katrina's tragic devastation of New Orleans and the recent U.S. wars of choice. It can be shown, however, that the death and destruction wrought by Katrina have been (at least in part) a submerged or invisible part of the enormous costs of the escalating war and military spending.

Is George Bush Restarting Latin America's 'Dirty Wars'?

By Benjamin Dangl

In May of 2005, the Paraguayan Senate voted to allow U.S. troops to operate in Paraguay with total immunity. Washington had threatened to cut off millions in aid to the country if Paraguay did not grant the U.S. troops entry. In July of 2005 hundreds of U.S. soldiers arrived in the country, and Washington's funding for counterterrorism efforts in Paraguay doubled.

War and the "New World Order"

By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya

War is the ultimate means of attempting to change societies and reshape nations. It is through war that national economies and political structures can be forcibly restructured. War is, potentially, the ultimate economic shock therapy. The wars in the Middle East are stepping stones towards establishing a vision of global order that has been in the hearts and minds of the Anglo-American establishment for years. That vision is global ascendancy.

Iran's Nuclear Chess Game

By Nader Bagherzadeh and Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

The mainstream media in reporting this intricate 'chess game' has decided to champion the side of war and has given the truth a 'check mate'. Even 'reputable' papers such as The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Washington Post have all decided that serving a departing administration that has led the nation into one quagmire is of greater importance than loyalty to a nation consistent in its devotion to the flag.

Programmbeschwerde an WDR-Intendantin Piel und WDR-Rundfunkrat wegen industriefreundlicher Sendung

Von Peter Kleinert

Eine Richtigstellung der ihrer Ansicht nach einseitigen, manipulativen und industriefreundlichen WDR-Sendung über Handystrahlung in „Quarks und Co.“ vom 19. Juni 2007 hatte die Kompetenzinitiative zum Schutz von Mensch, Umwelt und Demokratie kurz danach vom WDR gefordert. Nachdem WDR-Programmbereichsleiter Helfried Spitra dies als „Angriff auf unseren Moderator Ranga Yogeshwar“ abgelehnt hatte, erhielten nun Intendantin Monika Piel und der WDR-Rundfunkrat eine offizielle Programmbeschwerde nach § 10 des WDR-Gesetzes.
