How Republicans Quietly Hijacked the Justice Department to Swing Elections

Steven Rosenfeld, in an excerpt from his new book "Loser Take All," states: "The GOP may have committed massive vote fraud in plain sight by encouraging widespread voter purges and restricting registration campaigns ... Since the 2004 election, activist lawyers with ties to the Republican Party and its presidential campaigns, Republican legislators, and even the Supreme Court - in a largely unnoticed ruling in 2006 - have been aggressively regulating most aspects of the voting process."



Foreclosures Jump 57 Percent in Last 12 Months

Lynn Adler reports for Reuters: "Home foreclosure filings surged 57 percent in the 12 month-period ended in March and bank repossessions soared 129 percent from a year ago, as homeowners struggled to make mortgage payments, real estate data firm RealtyTrac said on Tuesday. For the month of March, foreclosure filings, default notices, auction sale notices and bank repossessions rose 5 percent, led by Nevada, California and Florida, RealtyTrac said."



The End of the World as You Know It

Michael T. Klare writing for TomDispatch.com observes: "Oil at $110 a barrel. Gasoline at $3.35 (or more) per gallon. Diesel fuel at $4 per gallon. Independent truckers forced off the road. Home heating oil rising to unconscionable price levels. Jet fuel so expensive that three low-cost airlines stopped flying in the past few weeks. This is just a taste of the latest energy news, signaling a profound change in how all of us, in this country and around the world, are going to live..."

Blood Levels of Mercury Are Related to Diagnosis of Autism: A Reanalysis of an Important Data Set


Mercury: a common cause of chronic conditions

Informant: Dorothee Krien


Blood Levels of Mercury Are Related to Diagnosis of Autism

Dear Dorothee: Thank you for this email and the other two I received this morning. These are important studies and as you know, the issue re thimerosol is finally gaining more attention.

The same is true for virtually any medication or even supplements. Vitamins A, B, C, E and ohers are reported as becoming toxic -- intolerances are occuring even with relatively small doses.

One prescription medication after another is causing serious adverse effects -- doesn't seem to matter whether the drug is for depression, bi-polar, etc., arthritis, cholesterol-lowering or even an antibiotic. I just dealt with serious changes in Bud re pneumonia when he developed hallucinations after he began taking Doxycycline. Magnetic field readings averaged 6.5 mg in his bedroom -- I do not know electric field measurement. He has no appliances, telephone equipment, waterpipes or improper wiring close to the head of his bed although the gas meter's electric field may still be too close to his bed. I use the gaussmeter as "an investigative tool" only. No electric or telephone equipment should be closer to one's bed than a minimum of 3 ft., regardless of the magnetic field measurement in or on one's bed..

These are all reasons why the sort of studies Olle and his colleagues are willing to conduct if and when funding comes their way, are so vital.

As with most of today's studies, almost no "focused attention" is directed toward evaluating electric and telephone bed exposures. The infant/toddler who develops autism may have a monitor in or under their crib. The child may be sleeping close to an electric meter or gas meter or other chronic, prolonged EMF/EMR source. The child may have an "EMF friendly bedroom" but may spend most of the night in bed with his or her parents.

As with the overall EMF issue, studies and claims re the amount of thimerosol in vaccines continue to be ambiguous and/or largely inconclusive in conjunction with proving causality.

We know that EMF/EMR appears to exacerbate the function of metals in humans and animals in a uniquely harmful way. In our family, my guinea pig studies, as well as some of my research, that applies whether natural, injected or consumed.

You may recall that the veterinarian/pathologist at the University of Minnesota was looking for some sort of metal overload in my guinea pig, Kelley -- the one who developed Reactive Renal Amyloidosis (considered to be "rare") after about 2-1/2 years living in our basement where milligauss readings ranged between 3.5 mg and 4.5 mg on average. There is a sewer pipe in the floor right under the desk that held the cage. I do not know the corresponding electric field reading.

None of what I write means we should be any less concerned about the mercury itself, it is just that I believe the numbers of autism-spectrum disorders would be significantly higher if the thimeosol is the only culprit. I commend you and ohers for your efforts to bring attention to the dangers of mercury but believe we must also emphasize the urgent need to study the probable exacerbated effects of thimerosol injection in animals under exposures simulating chronic, close nighttime exposures versus animals and/or cells not similarly exposed.

I hope you are enjoying spring -- best wishes and take care - Joanne

Slouching Towards Balkanization

By Pepe Escobar

Happy Days are here again. It's as if the George W Bush years in Afghanistan had never left, with Washington still wallowing in an intelligence-free environment. A surge is coming to town - just like the one General David Petraeus engineered in Iraq.



EPA Missing in Action

Margaret Kriz reports for The National Journal, "The Environmental Protection Agency is failing to live up to its name these days, its legions of critics agree. At a time when the nation's top environmental regulators face increasingly complex pollution problems, President Bush is pushing for dramatic cuts in EPA's budget, his administration's strained, pro-industry interpretations of environmental laws have repeatedly been laughed out of court, and the White House is widely perceived to be running roughshod over agency scientists and lawyers."



REAL ID proves federal government is not the all powerful Oz

The Price of Liberty
by Robert Greenslade


With the threat of their citizens not being able to board an airplane or enter a federal building, New Hampshire, Maine, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Washington, and Montana have enacted laws that basically tell the federal government to pound sand because we will never comply with the Real ID requirement. Other States are also contemplating noncompliance. For those Americans who still have the ability to think and reason, this legislation and the defiance by the States should trigger some questions...

Petraeus sets up Iran

by Paul Craig Roberts


Last week’s congressional testimony by Gen. David Petraeus and Green Zone administrator Ryan Crocker set the propaganda stage for a Bush regime attack on Iran….. According to the neocon propaganda, the “special groups” (have you ever heard of them before?) are breakaway elements of al Sadr’s militia.Nonsensical on its face, the Petraeus/Crocker testimony is just another ploy in the macabre theatre of lies that the Bush regime has told in order to justify its wars of naked aggression against Muslims...

Torture: Beyond the pale

Seattly Post-Intelligencer
by staff


The image of CIA officers demonstrating and detailing torture techniques considered for use during detainee interrogations in the White House is one most Americans could probably never conceive. And yet, ABC News reported last week that senior Bush administration officials were privy to such presentations in the Situation Room as they discussed and approved the brutal treatment (such as waterboarding) of terror suspects. They also approved combining various techniques to be used on a suspect...

On Generals testifying before Congress

Fred On Everything
by Fred Reed


Whenever I see that some dismal general will testify to Congress regarding the war against Iraq, I imagine the first paragraph of his Power Point presentation:“All metrics show a downsurge in the violence in Iraq, and a continuing improvement in indicators of the production of a better life. Next slide. The Iranians are aiding the enemies of America, and must be bombed. This is a recording.”

What solemn, fraudulent, emetic mummery. Congressmen will—do—ask the General puffball questions, after which they will do whatever the President tells them to do. I can make no criticism of this. It is the American way. Still, may I suggest a few questions I would like to see the General, any general, asked?

Did the fed cause the housing bubble?

Ludwig von Mises Institute
by Robert P. Murphy


One of the few positive developments from the housing bubble is that many mainstream economists have recognized the pernicious role played by the Federal Reserve. Indeed, some analysts on CNBC have discussed the outright abolition of the Fed. The case against the Fed is straightforward: In an attempt to jumpstart the economy out of recession, Greenspan slashed the federal funds target from 6.5% in January 2001 down to a ridiculous 1% by June 2003...

Financial Collapse Will End The Occupation

And it won't be "A time of our choosing"

The Iraq War signals the end of US interventionism for at least a generation; maybe longer. The ideological foundation for the war (preemption/regime change) has been exposed as a baseless justification for unprovoked aggression. Someone will have to be held accountable.



Only A Miracle Can Save America Now

by Pastor Chuck Baldwin

America is currently facing the most serious threat to its national independence and sovereignty since the War of 1812. The forces of globalism have declared an all-out war against our country's independence. Illegal immigration, the NAFTA superhighway, the North American Community, a regional currency called the Amero, and "free trade" deals are just a few of the weapons in their arsenal. And John McCain will use every bit of his power as President to facilitate all of this chicanery. And, because McCain is a Republican, conservatives and Christians will sit back and let it happen without even the slightest whimper of resistance. If Obama or Clinton were sitting in the Oval Office, however, massive numbers of conservatives and Christians would rise in protest over every inch of ground ceded to these nefarious nabobs. So, tell me, who is the greater evil? I say it is John McCain.......

Questions for Petraeus



Rich States Failing to Lead on Emissions

David Adam and John Vidal of The Guardian UK report: "Developing countries, including China and India, are unwilling to sign up to a new global climate change pact to replace the Kyoto protocol in 2012 because the rich world has failed to set a clear example on cutting carbon emissions, according to the UN's top climate official."


Financing Crucial to Next Climate Change Pact

According to Louise Egan, Reuters, "The global fight against climate change after the Kyoto pact expires will fail unless rich countries can come up with creative ways to finance clean development by poorer nations, a UN official said on Saturday."



Climate Change Rage Drives Global Hunger

In The Telegraph UK, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard writes: "We drive, they starve. The mass diversion of the North American grain harvest into ethanol plants for fuel is reaching its political and moral limits."



Taxing the Poor

NOW goes to Alabama "to document the personal impact of regressive tax policies on three very different families. They include a working mom who shows us how a ten percent sales tax on groceries makes a significant difference in what her family eats; a couple living in a ramshackle house in the backwoods, who've always held jobs but still face hunger, and a well-to-do suburban couple who benefit from huge tax breaks."


Military Releases High Casualty Figures

According to CBS News's Pia Malbran, "The Department of Defense has released its latest American military casualty numbers for those who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the figures reveal non-fatal casualties that go well beyond the more than 4,000 US troops who have died so far."
