The Silent Coup: How a Nation Ruled by Law, Becomes a Nation Ruled by Men

Liza Persson writes for OpEd News: "There is a battle far from getting the attention it deserves considering the stakes - the rule and governing of the USA. You would only notice with great difficulty and after spending a lot of time viewing hearing in various congressional committees, picking up a piece here and another there, and painstakingly putting them into a historical context in a far from obvious manner."

Winter Soldiers to Testify Against War

Reporting for Truthout, Maya Schenwar writes, "Thirty-seven years ago, in the midst of a bitter-cold Michigan winter, 109 Vietnam veterans gathered at a Howard Johnson Motel auditorium in Detroit to tell their stories. For three days, they told of ransacking undefended villages, attacking civilians, mutilating bodies, torturing Viet Cong suspects, burning houses, destroying Vietnamese property and livestock and killing innocent children."

Recipes for Disaster in Iraq

Tom Engelhardt and Frida Berrigan write for TomDispatch.com: "In other words, in honor of the soon-to-arrive fifth anniversary of his war without end, the President has offered a formula for economic success in bad times that might be summed up this way: less houses, more bases, more weaponry, more war. This, of course, comes from the man who, between 2001 and today, presided over an official Pentagon budget that leapt by more than 60% from $316 billion to $507 billion, and by more than 30% since Iraq was invaded. Looked at another way, between 2001 and the latest emergency supplemental request to pay for his wars (first in Afghanistan and then in Iraq), supplemental funding for war-fighting has jumped from $17 billion to $189 billion, an increase of 1,011%. At the same time, almost miraculously, the US armed forces have been driven to the edge of the military equivalent of default."

Senate Republicans Block Mortgage Relief Bill

Edmund L. Andrews reports for The New York Times: "Just a month after President Bush and Democratic leaders hailed their bipartisan agreement on an economic stimulus plan, the two sides went to war on Thursday over how to prevent widening damage from the housing crisis. Senate Republicans, lining up with President Bush, blocked a Democratic bill that would provide more money for homeowner counseling programs and let bankruptcy judges reduce the terms of a mortgage for people about to lose their houses through foreclosure."

The evil that parties do

The Price of Liberty
by Ted Lang

02/25/08

I am not one of those disciples of the state, nor that student of politics, that offers that the United States Constitution is ‘the greatest document ever written.’ My choice would be instead, the Declaration of Independence. It was the Declaration that cleverly transferred the power of Divine Right from a nation’s monarch to each and every single, solitary citizen of a nation. It was that document that established and reaffirmed John Locke’s ‘life, liberty and property’ as the human means by which we can all enjoy the Creator’s gifts. It was the Declaration that established government as an artificial entity, one whose only purpose was to guarantee individual human freedom, and that when government fails in this regard, citizens had a right to abolish it and to create a better one to replace it...

A commission that should cause concern

Independent Institute

02/27/08

Washington commissions typically elicit little more than a yawn. Their numerous unread reports gather dust on shelves all over the city, from Foggy Bottom to Capitol Hill. So why should we be concerned about legislation, approved by the U.S. House of Representatives in October and now pending in the Senate, to establish a bipartisan ‘National Commission on the Prevention of Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism?’ Don’t we want to prevent these things? Yes, we do. But we also want to prevent the government from engaging in ideological witch hunts or violating civil liberties, simply on the basis of what people believe...

A lesson in value theory for Clinton

02/28/08

During the Ohio debate, Hillary Clinton used the word “value” three times. And each time she did so incorrectly. She’s not alone, however. The mistakes she makes in value theory have become commonplace in America. But without a proper understanding of value, ethics and politics become warped. It’s time, therefore, that I gave Senator Clinton a lesson in value theory...

In der Schweiz verboten, in Deutschland erlaubt? Gen-Weizen stoppen!

Umweltinstitut München e.V. – Newsletter vom 29. Februar 2008

Die Universität Rostock plant von 2008 bis 2010 einen Freilandversuch mit genmanipuliertem Weizen in Sachsen-Anhalt und Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Nur 50 Meter entfernt von den Versuchsfeldern soll bereits wieder konventioneller Weizen angebaut werden. Und das, obwohl aktuelle Forschungsergebnisse zeigen, dass Weizen bis in eine Entfernung von 2,7 Kilometern auskreuzen kann. Eine gentechnische Kontamination der Nahrungskette ist damit vorprogrammiert. Die manipulierten Pflanzen, die von Schweizer Wissenschaftlern hergestellt wurden, enthalten zudem so genannte Antibiotika-Resistenzgene. Pikanterweise wäre der geplante Versuch in der Schweiz daher nicht mehr genehmigungsfähig. Aus Sicherheitsgründen ist der Einsatz solcher Gene dort ab 2009 verboten. In der Schweiz verboten – in Deutschland erlaubt? Helfen Sie uns dabei, den Versuch zu verhindern. Schicken Sie eine Protest-Mail an Landwirtschaftsminister Seehofer, und wenden Sie bei der Genehmigungsbehörde gegen das Experiment ein.

The foreign policy follies

AntiWar.Com
by Justin Raimondo

02/29/08

Ignore the past, and plunge into the future. Irrespective of one’s position on the war — or the presidential race — one has to ask: is this really how a self-proclaimed ‘conservative’ formulates policy? Conservatism, as I’ve been led to understand it, is all about empiricism: a methodology that upholds the superiority of the tried-and-true, and validates a reverence for tradition. However, when the traditionalists — or their leaders — declare, in effect, that history is bunk, we have truly entered Bizarro World. Conservatives are really lost in the wilderness these days, and the death of William F. Buckley, Jr., has proved to be the occasion for a lot of commentary on conservatism, past and future...

Pelosi wants Bush aides investigated

San Francisco Chronicle

02/28/08

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked the Justice Department on Thursday to open a grand jury investigation into whether President Bush’s chief of staff and former counsel should be prosecuted for contempt of Congress. Pelosi, D-Calif., demanded that the department pursue misdemeanor charges against former White House counsel Harriet Miers for refusing to testify to Congress about the firings of federal prosecutors in 2006 and against chief of staff Josh Bolten for failing to turn over White House documents related to the dismissals. She gave Attorney General Michael Mukasey one week to respond and said refusal to take the matter to a grand jury will result in the House’s filing a civil lawsuit against the Bush administration...

Obama also has no plans to sign on to legislation that seeks to ban the use of these forces in US war zones by January 2009. Despite their antiwar rhetoric, both Obama and Senator Hillary Clinton have adopted the congressional Democratic position that would leave open the option of keeping tens of thousands of US troops in Iraq for many years.

USDA: Shame on you for using our kids

In an urgent move to push the Federal USDA National Animal Identification System (NAIS) on Illinois producers, children are forced to have a Premise Identification number of the property where their animal is kept or they cannot compete. The Illinois Department of Agriculture has placed a mandate on Illinois 4-H exhibitors….but is it legal? The NAIS is a national program being promoted in every state. It is supposed to be a voluntary federal program. When fully implemented, it will require a premise registration number even if you only have one horse, cow, pig, chicken, sheep, goat, deer, elk.......

Warum internationale Handelsketten nicht willkommen sind

In einem Land, wo die "Terroristen" (Naxalbaris) massenhaft Zulauf finden bei direkten Aktionen gegen die Nahrungsmittelverteilstellen in den jeweiligen Bundesstaaten (wo es - eigentlich - unterschiedliche Preise je nach Einkommen der Bezieher geben sollte), kann es nicht verwundern, dass die verschiedenen Anläufe der Walmart und Carrefour, Metro und anderen Segnungen der Marktwirtschaft, endlich auf diesem riesigen Markt Fuß zu fassen, bisher an recht breiter Ablehnung gescheitert sind. Aber natürlich gibt es auch in Indien genügend Menschen, die es ganz toll finden, für irgendwelche Unternehmen Reklame zu laufen - und dafür noch teuer bezahlen zu müssen. Massenhafte Farmerselbstmorde auf der einen Seite, die stetig wachsende Anzahl von Patenten, die sich Unternehmen von ihren jeweiligen Behörden geben lassen auf der anderen Seite, sind der Hintergrund zu einer heftigen gesellschaftlichen Konfrontation, innerhalb derer sich immer mehr Bauern, Fischer und "Waldmenschen" zu kooperativen Zusammenschlüssen finden, die beispielsweise ohne Künstdünger arbeiten. 12 Millionen "Einzelhandelseinrichtungen" gibt es in Indien, 40 Millionen Menschen sind dort beschäftigt - die Millionen StraßenhändlerInnen nicht gerechnet - die oft genug, in kleineren Städten vor allem, Bäuerinnen sind, die Direktverkauf praktizieren. Dennoch beschäftigt der Zwischenhandel, die örtlichen "Agents" Zehntausende. Prekär und schlecht genug also der Istzustand. Für die breiten Massen der "nicht konsumfähigen" Menschen ist mit dem Einzug der transnationalen Handelskonzerne keine Besserung in Sicht, im Gegenteil.

Ganz unmoderne Forderungen tauchen auf: Preiskontrollen

Nach Senegal und Mauretanien und noch während die Polizei und Armee in Kamerun auf Demonstranten schiessen, nun auch heftige Proteste in Burkina Faso. Speziell in den westafrikanischen Ländern treibt die massive Teuerung (in BF bis zu 65%) bei Grundnahrungsmitteln wie vor allem Speiseöl und Zucker die Menschen zum Protest - und die Regierungen reagieren neben Terror mit Zugeständnissen, etwa indem die Besteuerung solcher Waren vermindert oder gar ausgesetzt wird. Die massenhaften Protestbewegungen, sehr oft getragen von ganz jungen Menschen, oft gar aus den Schulen kommend, setzen sich nicht nur militant zur Wehr: sie vertreten auch Forderungen, die sich weder um politische Theoreme irgendwelcher Art kümmern, noch darum, ob sie mit der Marktwirtschaft kompatibel sind: Preiskontrollen zum Beispiel.

Kucinich Fights Back

In this last week before the primary election in Ohio, Kucinich is putting out a TV ad that will absolutely knock your socks off, and you can see it on this page.

This is the Dennis we will always remember. This is the Dennis we love. This is the Dennis we must KEEP in the U.S. House of Representatives.

And Dennis needs your help right now, to put this spectacular new TV spot on the air in this district in heavy rotation, to demonstrate that he can fight back against the big corporate money trying to unseat him . . . and he will win.

There are only six days left, and your contribution right now can shine the light of truth on just what Dennis stands for, and blow away all obfuscation like it was so much the smoke that it is.

Some bandy about the word "change" as if all change were good. But we say, if it ain't broke don't fix it. And Dennis does not need to be fixed. He has consistently been the strongest voice in all of Congress for every progressive policy initiative. And that is why the corporate special interests are so desperate to knock him out.

That's not going to happen.

Just so long as we do everything we could have possibly done to stand with him and support him now, when he himself is so wrongfully under attack. Please send the link below to absolutely everyone who cares about saving our democracy.

And just you watch. As soon as the distraction of the mean-spiriting primary challenge is dispensed with, he'll be leading the charge once again on impeachment and everything else. After all he has already done, the man deserves a couple weeks off to take care of election business at home.

And to thank you for your valiant support, Dennis wants you to have as his gift to you a copy of his special Kucinich commemorative edition pocket constitution, with your donation of $100 or more. And if you are one of the few who have not be blindsided by Cheney's gut-the-economy agenda, Dennis Kucinich will personally autograph your copy with your donation of $1,000 or more.

Please note that even if you had already donated the full legal limit to his brave presidential run, which had a real impact in shifting the debate, you can donate another $2,300 for his congressional seat defense.

But even if you can't make a donation right now, there is still something incredibly important you can do to help, and that is to send links to the video to anyone you can. So ask all your friends to visit the page below too.

So please do what you can to spread the word that this is a must win, must-keep situation. It is only because of the courage of Dennis Kucinich in standing strong to protect and defend the Constitution that we are where we are now, with more and more members of Congress clamoring for meaningful impeachment hearings, and the House still holding the line against that craven telecom immunity thing.

Let us not be complacent. Let us not take anything for granted just because Dennis is so amazing on every issue. We have to make sure that we empower Dennis to remind his constituents what a magnificent job he has been doing for them and for us all. And nothing would push impeachment forward more than the most clearcut victory for Dennis in his primary.

Paid for by the Re-Elect Congressman Kucinich Committee

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
