Ohio Voting Machines Contained Programming Error That Dropped Votes

Mary Pat Flaherty, The Washington Post: "A voting system used in 34 states contains a critical programming error that can cause votes to be dropped while being electronically transferred from memory cards to a central tallying point, the manufacturer acknowledges. The problem was identified after complaints from Ohio elections officials following the March primary there, but the logic error that is the root of the problem has been part of the software for 10 years, said Chris Riggall, a spokesman for Premier Election Solutions, formerly known as Diebold."

Nach Röstel und Schlauch nun auch Ex-Energieexpertin der Grünen Hustedt mit Posten bei Atomkonzern

Die ehemalige Vorstandssprecherin der Grünen, Gunda Röstel, wechselte im September 2000, gleich nach dem so genannten "Atomkonsens" der rot-grünen Bundesregierung mit der Atomindustrie, in die Energiewirtschaft. Sie erhielt einen Managerposten bei der damaligen E.On-Tochter Gelsenwasser. Der Atomkraftwerksbetreiber E.On war zufrieden mit dem so genannten Atomausstieg vom Sommer 2000, weil mit dem Bau von Standort-Zwischenlagern die befürchtete "Verstopfung" der Atomkraftwerke mit Atommüll vom Tisch war und ein langjähriger, störungsfreier Weiterbetrieb der Atomkraftwerke zugesichert worden war. Der einstige grüne Spitzenpolitiker Rezzo Schlauch, zuletzt Staatssekretär im Bundeswirtschaftsministerium, wurde am 1. Oktober 2005 in den Beirat des Atomkraftwerksbetreibers EnBW berufen. Nun erhielt die frühere Grünen-Energieexpertin Michaele Hustedt einen Posten bei einer Tochtergesellschaft des Kohle- und Atomkraftwerksbetreibers RWE. Hustedt war maßgeblich am "Atomkonsens" mit de r Atomindustrie beteiligt. Atomkraftgegner kritisieren derartige Wechsel aus der Politik in die Privatwirtschaft vielfach als "nachgelagerte Bestechnung". Sie unterstellen, es handele sich um die Belohnung für vorherige politische Entscheidungen im Sinne des betreffenden Unternehmens oder der Branche. Hustedt, die von 1994 bis 2005 dem Bundestag angehörte, verteidigt sich nun gegen Kritik. Sie sei lediglich in den Beirat der Ökostrom-Tochter des Atomkonzerns, RWE Innogy, berufen worden. Auch Röstel erhielt ihren Managerposten nicht direkt bei der Atomtochter von E.On, sondern nur bei der Gelsenwasser AG, die sich mit Trinkwasser, Abwasser, Erdgas und Dienstleistungen beschäftigt.

Bald 50.000 "Hartz IV"-Klagen in der Hauptstadt

Berlin stockt wegen "Hartz-IV"-Klagen Zahl der Sozialrichter auf

Wegen der anhaltend hohen Zahl an Klagen von "Hartz IV"-Empfängern will Berlins Justizsenatorin Gisela von der Aue (SPD) das Berliner Sozialgericht verstärken. "Wir werden 40 zusätzliche Richterstellen möglichst schon ab nächstem Jahr zu den bisher 85 Sozialrichtern beantragen", sagte die Justizsenatorin dem "Tagesspiegel". Dazu solle dieselbe Anzahl an Rechtspflegern kommen. "Wir können uns da keinen Flaschenhals erlauben, in dem die Klagen hängenbleiben", unterstrich von der Aue. An Deutschlands größtem Sozialgericht wird voraussichtlich in der kommenden Woche die 50.000. Klage im Zusammenhang mit den von der rot-grünen Bundesregierung beschlossenen "Hartz IV"-Regelungen.

This is a major breakthrough and a great success after a long fight with the School Governor's and the Lancashire County Council.We are now more optimistic that a similar decision can be taken in regard to the Slaidburn Crescent mast installation. We would like our local Councillors to renew their efforts in the fight to rid us of this mast which is having an adverse effect on our well being. Perhaps we can expect at least a review and confirmation from Sefton Council that they propose to take appropriate action.We look to Cllr Tattersall to take leadership on this important issue.

NATO, Georgia and Russia

Rebirth of Reason
by Tibor R. Machan

08/20/08

The pacifist impulse is not a strong one within the current Russian leadership which is mostly made up of but barely reformed ex-Soviets. Unless Russian leaders become less bent on physically ruling the region and firmly, credibly commit to co-existence with their vulnerable neighbors, the NATO option simply cannot be discounted. Some kind of security measure will have to be available to these countries and arguably any will irk the Russians. And Mr. Friedman, who is an educated individual concerning geo-political matters, ought to know this and provide his commentary on the recent Russian v. Georgian conflict in that light. In short, what advice does he have for leaders of countries like the Republic of Georgia given the evident aggressiveness of Russia?

US role in Georgia crisis cannot be ignored

AntiWar.Com
by Stephen Zunes

08/21/08

The international condemnation of Russian aggression against Georgia — and the concomitant assaults by Abkhazians and South Ossetians against ethnic Georgians within their territories — is in large part appropriate. But the self-righteous posturing coming out of Washington should be tempered by a sober recognition of the ways in which the United States has contributed to the crisis. It has been nearly impossible to even broach this subject of the U.S. role. Much of the mainstream media coverage and statements by American political leaders of both major parties has in many respects resembled the anti-Russian hysterics of the Cold War. It is striking how quickly forgotten is the fact that the U.S.-backed Georgian military started the war when it brutally assaulted the South Ossetian capital of Tskhinvali in an attempt to regain direct control of the autonomous region...

Georgia Was Tricked, But By Russia Or US?

By Ian Bell

As an economically embattled US flails after former glories, it fashions Nato into a blunt instrument. Whatever the organisation's purpose during the Cold War, it currently stands revealed as an expeditionary force on behalf of Washington's interests. That is not a useful development for Nato, Europe, America or the world.

Bush: "It would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines"

The Romantic and the Realist

By Kelly Anspaugh

Recently, while discussing the state of the war in Afghanistan with military personnel, President Bush remarked, "I must say, I'm a little envious. If I were slightly younger . . . I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed. . . . It must be exciting for you ... in some ways romantic, you know, confronting danger. You're really making history, and thanks."

FBI May Start Spying On Americans "Without Any Basis For Suspicion"

New Guidelines Would Give F.B.I. Broader Powers

A New Rush to Spy

The New York Times: "There is apparently no limit to the Bush administration's desire to invade Americans' privacy in the name of national security. According to members of Congress, Attorney General Michael Mukasey is preparing to give the F.B.I. broad new authority to investigate Americans - without any clear basis for suspicion that they are committing a crime. Opening the door to sweeping investigations of this kind would be an invitation to the government to spy on people based on their race, religion or political activities. Before Mr. Mukasey goes any further, Congress should insist that the guidelines be fully vetted, and it should make certain that they do not pose a further threat to Americans' civil liberties."

Georgian Crisis Is a Trap for U.S. Leadership

By Fyodor Lukyanov

This may sound strange, since most people consider U.S. President George W. Bush's foreign policy to be extremely ideological. After all, the global advancement of democracy has been his principal credo for nearly eight years. In practice, however, exporting democracy is less an ideology than it is realpolitik at its core -- an instrument for attaining geopolitical dominance around the globe.

Bush to Putin, "Get out now!". Putin to Bush, "Nyet!"

Bush isn't going to send American troops in South Ossetia. No way.

A guy like that isn't about to take on the Russian army. Forget about it. Bush will do all his fighting from the safety of the Executive Media Center where he can duck behind the Presidential podium if a car backfires on Pennsylvania Ave. That's his kind of fighting.

Putin Can't Afford to Back Down

The last thing Putin wants is a nuclear standoff with the United States. But he will not shirk from his responsibilities either.

That is the logical first-step that any responsible leader would take before removing the site altogether.

The Puppet Masters Behind Georgia President Saakashvili

By F. William Engdahl

Mihkail Saakashvili was deliberately placed in power in one of the most sophisticated US regime change operations, using ostensibly private NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations) to create an atmosphere of popular protest against the existing regime of former Soviet Foreign Minister Edouard Shevardnadze, who was no longer useful to Washington when he began to make a deal with Moscow over energy pipelines and privatizations.

The Saakashvili Experiment

By Ramzy Baroud

The fact is that Russia will fight to break away from the pro- US ring of former Soviet states that promise to undermine its influence in a Eurasia, and the US will do its utmost to maintain a level of tension, if not hostilities in the region, for without it neither a missile shield nor the 270 billion barrels of oil in the Caspian basin can be brought within Washington's reach.
