We Won't Escape the Worst Recession in 40 Years

Pierre de Gasquet and Virginie Robert interview Nouriel Roubini for Les Echos: the noted economist evaluates the administration's rescue plan and maintains, "... pooling the rotten assets in a sequestration structure is totally useless unless we reduce individuals' debts. Because if they can't pay, we'll have a foreclosure tsunami and banks will go under. And if they go under, the economy will go with them."

Delay row sees phone mast stay

Thursday, September 25, 2008, 09:00

A DELAY of just 24 hours has meant a controversial mobile phone mast has been allowed to stay up in Swansea's Townhill area.

Assembly planing inspector Clive Nield ruled that Swansea Council was one day late in telling telecommunications giant Vodafone that permission for the mast to be installed on land at the junction of Dyfed Avenue and Ceiriog Road had been refused.

The delay meant that Vodafone could ignore the council's ruling and put the mast up anyway, and now has successfully appealed against a further council order to take the mast down.

In his report, Mr Nield said: "There is no doubt the council failed to meet the requirement for notification of its decision within the prescribed 56-day period. Thus, the development in question is deemed to have been approved."

Bush Aides Linked to Talks on Interrogations

Mark Mazzetti, The New York Times: "Senior White House officials played a central role in deliberations in the spring of 2002 about whether the Central Intelligence Agency could legally use harsh interrogation techniques while questioning an operative of Al Qaeda, Abu Zubaydah, according to newly released documents."

Abu Zubaydah and the futility of torture

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Andy Worthington

03/30/09

Reinforcing claims made over the last few years — by FBI agents, by author Ron Suskind, and by myself — that the supposed senior al-Qaeda operative Abu Zubaydah was less significant than he was made out to be, the Washington Post ran a front-page story yesterday, in which, drawing on interviews with ‘former senior government officials who closely followed [his] interrogations,’ Peter Finn and Joby Warrick reminded the world that Zubaydah was not actually a senior al-Qaeda operative and had no information about the inner workings of al-Qaeda.

Outcry as Caesar Road phone mast application resurfaces

Kenilworth Today - Leamington Spa, England, UK

Almost three years to the day Vodafone was refused planning permission to site a 15m mast on Caesar Road in Kenilworth, the mobile phone company has resubmitted the application.

Much to the dismay of residents, the new application is identical and despite a bitter battle in November 2005 by residents who won their fight, Warwick District Council will have to consider the plans once again.

Hearing zur Situation von Erwerbslosen unter Rhein-Brücke

Hearing zu Hartz IV: Die Täter sind immer noch an der Regierung

“Am 12. September veranstaltete Rüdiger Sagel, MdL der Partei DIE.LINKE im Düsseldorfer Landtag, ein öffentliches Hearing zur gegenwärtigen und künftigen Situation von Erwerbslosen. Da der Landtag keinen Raum zur Verfügung gestellt hatte, musste die Anhörung bei Regen und Kälte unter einer Rhein-Brücke stattfinden. Das Umfeld erinnerte an den Aufstand der „Commune de Paris" gegen die Obrigkeit im Jahre 1871, der ebenfalls unter Brücken – denen von Paris – begann. In Düsseldorf war von Aufstand weniger zu spüren, stattdessen kamen Fachleute und Erwerbslose zu Wort…“ Bericht von Hans-Dieter Hey in NRhZ-Online - Neue Rheinische Zeitung, Online-Flyer Nr. 164 vom 17.09.2008 //www.nrhz.de/flyer/beitrag.php?id=12892

Blame Fannie Mae and Congress for the credit mess

National Center for Policy Analysis
by staff

09/24/08

The vast accumulation of toxic mortgage debt that poisoned the global financial system was driven by the aggressive buying of subprime and Alt-A mortgages, and mortgage-backed securities, by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The poor choices of these two government sponsored enterprises (GSEs) — and their sponsors in Washington — are largely to blame for our current mess, says the Wall Street Journal. How did we get here?

Let them go bankrupt; save a trillion dollars

Heartland Institute
by Jim Johnston

09/24/08

Congress, the Treasury, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Federal Reserve are hell-bent to bail out the housing and financial industries and then regulate them into rigor mortis. All this with no judicial review and a bill for taxpayers on the order of $700 billion to $1 trillion, not including higher inflation. It makes the funding for the Iraq war look like chump change. Is there an alternative? The answer in one word is yes...

Bailouts: the wound that will keep on hemorrhaging

by Devvy Kidd

Clearly, we have made huge strides in educating our fellow Americans about fiat currency and sound monetary policy, but without real newspapers in this country, most Americans don't know the truth. It's also crystal clear that members of Congress, with few exceptions, are clue less. I think it's safe to say that many of those who do know, don't have the courage to go up against the most powerful money cartels in the world; the rest are simply crooks who profit from a corrupted monetary system. Over the decades, Congress has been perfectly willing to forfeit their authority, violate their oath of office and.......

Fannie Mae Eases Credit To Aid Mortgage Lending

The action, which will begin as a pilot program involving 24 banks in 15 markets -- including the New York metropolitan region -- will encourage those banks to extend home mortgages to individuals whose credit is generally not good enough to qualify for conventional loans. Fannie Mae officials say they hope to make it a nationwide program by next spring.

Six years in Guantanamo

09/25/08

Sami al-Haj walks with pain on his steel crutch; almost six years in the nightmare of Guantanamo have taken their toll on the Al Jazeera journalist and, now in the safety of a hotel in the small Norwegian town of Lillehammer, he is a figure of both dignity and shame. The Americans told him they were sorry when they eventually freed him this year – after the beatings he says he suffered, and the force-feeding, the humiliations and interrogations by British, American and Canadian intelligence officers – and now he hopes one day he’ll be able to walk without his stick...

Bundesanwalt gegen Grundgesetz

25. September 2008

Zu den Äußerungen des stellvertretenden Generalbundesanwaltes Griesbaum, auch Aussagen unter Folter sollten in Einzelfällen für weitere Ermittlungen verwendet werden dürfen, erklärt die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Halina Wawzyniak:

Voraussetzung für die Befähigung zum Richteramt ist die Kenntnis des Grundgesetzes. Nach den jetzt bekannt gewordenen Äußerungen ist zweifelhaft, ob dies auch für stellvertretende Generalbundesanwälte gilt. Knapp 60 Jahre nach dem ersten Zusammentreten des Parlamentarischen Rates, welcher das Grundgesetz erarbeitet hat, stellt Rainer Griesbaum das wichtigste Essential des Grundgesetzes zur Disposition. Das die Würde des Menschen unantastbar ist, ist eine der wichtigsten Lehren aus der Zeit des Faschismus gewesen. Die Würde des Menschen verbietet es, den Menschen zum bloßen Objekt staatlichen Handelns zu machen. Nichts anderes schlägt aber Herr Griesbaum vor. Damit stellt er sich gegen das Grundgesetz. Eine glaubwürdige Strafverfolgung ist mit ihm nicht denkbar. Wer an den Grundfesten der Verfassung rüttelt, kann nicht Verfassungsfeinde verfolgen. Die Bundesjustizministerin steht in der Verantwortung ihrer Dienstaufsicht nachzukommen.
