Künast sieht nach neuer Panne in Krümmel die Atomlobby entlarvt

Vor dem Hintergrund neuer Pannen im schleswig-holsteinischen Atomkraftwerk Krümmel kritisiert Grünen-Bundestagsfraktionschefin Renate Künast die deutschen Betreiber. "Der Brand im Pannenreaktor Krümmel entlarvt die falsche Werbekampagne der Atomlobby", sagte Künast der "Berliner Zeitung". Atomkraft sei ein unkalkulierbares Risiko und kein Klimaschutz. "Die Vorstände von Vattenfall, RWE, E.ON und EnBW können sich ihre Charmeoffensive sparen: Wir sind doch nicht blöd", sagte Künast.



US Committe Gov Reform Investigation-Mercury/Vaccines/Autism


Rep. Dan Burton, Chair of Gov Reform Committee comments on vaccines and mercury showing a video of an autistic child in full melt down. - Followed by Dr. Andrew Wakefield MD UK, well-respected scientist, whose discovery of the vaccine strain measles virus in the gut of autistic children set off an international frenzy from public health authorities attempting to marginalize Wakefield for their own irresponsibility in refusing to address these issues with vaccines. Many believe public health authorities have become fronts for big pharma who profit unlimited amounts from the illnesses produced by the delivery of contaminants contained in vaccines like mercury

The Boom Was a Bust for Ordinary People

In The Washington Post, Barbara Ehrenreich says: "It begins to sound a bit naughty - all this talk about the need to 'stimulate' the economy, as if we were discussing how to make a porn film. I don't mean to trivialize our economic difficulties or the need for effective government intervention, but we have to face a disconcerting fact: For years now, that strange stimulus-crazed beast, the economy, has been going its own way, increasingly disconnected from the toils and troubles of ordinary Americans."

Time Runs Out for an Afghan Held by the US

Carlotta Gall and Andy Worthington, of The New York Times, report: "Abdul Razzaq Hekmati was regarded here as a war hero, famous for his resistance to the Russian occupation in the 1980s and later for a daring prison break he organized for three opponents of the Taliban government in 1999. But in 2003, Mr. Hekmati was arrested by American forces in southern Afghanistan when, senior Afghan officials here contend, he was falsely accused by his enemies of being a Taliban commander himself. For the next five years he was held at the American military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where he died of cancer on December 30th."



Judge: Bush Can't Exempt Navy in Sonar

In an Associated Press report, we learn "President Bush cannot exempt the Navy from environmental laws banning sonar training that opponents argue harms whales, a federal judge ruled Monday. Navy officials did not immediately respond to the ruling by US District Judge Florence-Marie Cooper. Mark Matsunaga, spokesman for the Navy's Pacific Fleet, headquartered in Hawaii, said officials needed time to review it before commenting."

According to The Associated Press, "Environmental groups seeking to protect whales from the potentially harmful effects of sonar cheered a legal victory against the Navy and the Bush administration."



Federal Deficits Soaring Higher, Menacing the Future

Kevin G. Hall, of McClatchy Newspapers, writes: "President Bush took office in 2001 with a budget surplus, but his final budget proposal envisions federal deficits of more than $400 billion a year for the next two years. As big as those numbers are, experts think that the administration is lowballing the deficits, and they put little stock in Bush's vow to balance the budget by 2012. 'I think the promise that it will be balanced by 2012 is ridiculous,' said Chris Edwards, the director of tax policy for the Cato Institute, a libertarian policy research group."



States Prepare for Tests of Voting System Changes

Ian Urbina, of The New York Times, writes: "after California ordered a switch to paper ballots from touch-screen voting machines for Tuesday's primary, election officials in the sprawling, 7,200-square-mile Riverside County had to decide the best way to pick up the ballots so they could be centrally counted on time: helicopter or truck? They chose land rather than air, because the last time the helicopter had been grounded by fog. But then they encountered another problem: 60,000 absentee ballots had begun to fall apart at the fold lines."

The People’s State of the Union

by Lynn Stuter

Our elected representatives are so elected to carry out the business of the people of the United States within the construct of their oath of office: to uphold the Constitution of the United States. The United States Constitution is a short but well-written document enumerating the powers and responsibilities of the three branches of government: executive, legislative and judicial, establishing the God-given rights of the people as the masters of the elected, not as the servants of the government. Yet what we.......

McCain’s doves

Los Angeles Times
by Matt Welch


It’s no mystery why independents gravitate toward McCain. He’s a country-first, party-second kind of guy who speaks bluntly and delights in poking fellow Republicans in the eye on issues such as campaign finance reform and global warming. But there’s a bizarre disconnect in the warm embrace between McCain and the electorate’s mavericks. They hate the Iraq war, while he’s willing to fight it for another century. The most pro-war presidential candidate in a decade is winning the 2008 GOP nomination thanks to the antiwar vote...

Is secret justice really justice?



MPs and human rights campaigners have warned that the government is proposing to remove juries from some inquests and keep key evidence secret. …. When the Counter Terrorism Bill was unveiled in Parliament last month the focus naturally fell on the government’s plans to hold suspects for 42 days. Few noticed a clause in the bill which would allow the home secretary to create special inquests, without juries, for “reasons of national security” or “otherwise in the public interest”...


Is something bugging you?

Independent [UK]
by staff


A much-needed public debate about covert surveillance has begun, thanks to the allegation that counter-terrorism police officers secretly recorded discussions between the Tooting MP, Sadiq Khan, and a constituent, Babar Ahmad. Mr Khan was visiting Mr Ahmad in Woodhill Prison in Milton Keynes, where his constituent is awaiting extradition to the US on charges of supporting terrorism. If their conversation was recorded, this was a breach of the so-called “Wilson Doctrine” which forbids the secret surveillance of MPs without explicit ministerial approval. So was it a cock-up or a conspiracy?

John McCain the GOP Nominee?

AlterNet's Joshua Holland says, "According to the latest Washington Post poll, there's been a dramatic shift towards John McCain following his victory in the Florida GOP primary, and he now leads Mitt Romney by 24 points nationwide. With a number of winner-take-all primaries on the Republican side, he has a very good shot at wrapping up the nomination on February 5. It looks like conservatives - with a few raving-mad, mouth-breathing exceptions - have gone through denial, anger, bargaining and depression and come finally to accept their insubordinate nominee."

If you are not angered, indeed enraged, by the current state of the United States, then you have not been paying attention, or you just do not care enough about the future your children will inherit, and have to live in.


An Absence of Will

By Manuel Valenzuela

The Year of Living Dangerously is upon us. The sorrows of empire have arrived. In this struggle, America entire is Ground Zero. The clock is ticking, the time is wasting. Would we rather live in tyranny, or fight for freedom? Live in our America, or the corporatist Amerika?
