"Wir haben ein riesiges Netz- und Regelwerk, das Lobbyisten in die Hände spielt"

"Club der Eliten"

Pauli kritisiert europäische Institutionen

Harsche Kritik an den europäischen Institutionen hat die Europakandidatin der Freien Wähler, Gabriele Pauli, geäußert. "Wir haben ein riesiges Netz- und Regelwerk, das Lobbyisten in die Hände spielt", sagte sie am Dienstag bei der Vorstellung des Europawahlprogrammes der Freien Wähler in Würzburg. Europa sei ein "Club der Eliten", in dem sich Politiker, die an keiner Kontrolle interessiert seien, Frei- und Machträume geschaffen hätten.

Mast plan withdrawn

5:00pm Tuesday 21st April 2009

By Paul Rogers

A PLANNING application for a mobile phone mast in Ross-on-Wye has been withdrawn.

Telecommunications giant Vodafone had asked permission to put the 10-metre mast on the junction of Fernbank Road and Eastfield Road.

But Dr Ilana Clark, health and science specialist, said it had been withdrawn due to a change in Vodafone’s “technical requirements”.

Blackwater Out of Iraq? No, Not Yet

Matthew Lee And Mike Baker, The Associated Press: "Armed guards from the security firm once known as Blackwater Worldwide are still protecting US diplomats in Iraq, even though the company has no license to operate there and has been told by the State Department its contracts will not be renewed two years after a lethal firefight that stirred outrage in Baghdad. Private security guards employed by the company, now known as Xe, are slated to continue ground operations in parts of Iraq long into the summer, far longer than had previously been acknowledged, government officials told The Associated Press."

On Prosecuting War Crimes

Nick Mottern, Truthout: "Barack Obama is not given the right by our Constitution to be the judge and jury for torturers. I include Bush and Cheney in this category although they committed other war crimes. Mr. Obama and our Congress took oaths to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the land. They must be reminded that they must do this job regardless of whether they think it is divisive or not. If President Obama and the Congress do their jobs of enforcing the law with respect to torture and other Bush and Cheney war crimes, they will begin unraveling the web of deceit that has supported the Iraq and Afghanistan wars."

Wie kämpfen gegen die Krisenfolgen?

Illusionen einer Protestbewegung

„Angesichts eines weltweiten Finanzcrashs, einer tiefgreifenden Wirtschaftsrezession und einer drastischen Verunsicherung der politisch Verantwortlichen in den jeweiligen Industrieländern steht seit letztem Herbst die Frage im Raum, wie und wo sich der lange Zeit aufgestaute Unmut über die desaströsen sozialen Folgen dieser globalen Krise endlich Luft verschaffen wird…“ Artikel von Wolfgang Kraushaar, Politikwissenschaftler am Hamburger Institut für Sozialforschung, in Frankfurter Rundschau vom
03.04.2009 //www.fr-online.de/in_und_ausland/politik/doku_und_debatte/1709721_Globalisierungskritiker-I-Illusionen-einer-Protestbewegung.html


Ihr könnt nach Hause gehen!

„An den großen Demonstrationen der letzten Wochen beteiligten sich nur die üblichen Verdächtigen. Auch wenn es viele Linke nicht wahrhaben wollen, ist die Krise alles andere als eine Chance…“ Artikel von Stefanie Sievers in Jungle World vom 16. April 2009 //jungle-world.com/artikel/2009/16/34074.html

Aus dem Text: „…Solange die Krise sich hier nicht in Form von Massenentlassun­gen äußert, ist die Wut nämlich klein, aber die Angst um so größer. Und solange es noch etwas zu verlieren gibt, scheint den allermeisten verschärfter Konkurrenzkampf rationaler als Solida­rität. Wenn französische Arbeiter wütend sind, weil sie ihren Job verlieren, kidnappen sie vielleicht gemeinsam ihren Manager und handeln dadurch eine höhere Abfindung heraus. Wenn deut­sche Arbeiter Angst haben, ihre Stelle zu verlieren, arbeiten sie schneller als die Kollegen, ziehen sich gelbe T-Shirts mit der Aufschrift »Wir sind Opel« an und fotografieren die herbeigeeilte Kanz­lerin mit ihren Fotohandys. Die Kanzlerin schenkt strenge Fürsorge, der blaublütige Wirtschaftsminister zeigt feudale Souveränität, der zerknirschte Finanzminister mimt den Zorn der Gerechten. Was aber bieten schon jene Linken, die sich auf diesen Demonstrationen tummeln?...“


Gewerkschaftliche Mobilisierung in der Krise

Geschichte wird gemacht!

„Auch wenn die Reaktionen auf die Krise meist defensiv sind, gibt es Hoffnung für wirkungsvolle Sozialproteste – sofern die Gewerkschaften nicht den Willen der Beschäftigten zum Protest in drögen Sonntagsspaziergängen ersticken…“ Artikel von Bernhard Schmid in Jungle World vom 16.

Industry giant Vodafone wants to put the 8m-high mast next to a playing field at the end of Ladybrook Lane, near Rosemary Street, but residents are furious about the proposals.

Night is falling in America

Night is falling

The Libertarian Enterprise

There is an old saying that it is better to light a single candle than to curse the darkness. Night is falling in America. The government is increasingly authoritarian, and increasingly bold about stealing property, thwarting individual liberty, occupying foreign countries, massacring women and children. Concentration camps are not a new thing in this country.

Politicians. Bureaucrats. Civil servants. Once upon a time these public poobahs knew their place; they worked for government and performed a service. Today they see it as their mission to rule, regulate and run absolutely every aspect of human existence. Politicians promulgate thousands of new laws every year. Bureaucrats relentlessly bombard us with regulations. Civil servants everywhere compel us to cope with a multitude of meaningless minutiae simply because they can. Rules, regulations and laws are meaningless unless they are rigorously enforced. And so the Thin Blue Line becomes the Thick Brute Slime and the Free State of America turns into the Police State of the political classes...

Is government preparing us for censorship?

Tibor's Space
by Tibor R. Machan

04/19/09

The idea that thought and speech are major obstacles to doing what is right isn’t new at all. As recently as the 1980s the one liberty that liberal statists could be counted on defending, at least in the United States of America, is the one spelled out in the First Amendment to the Constitution. Alas, this was challenged some time ago by Professor Catharine A. MacKinnon of the University of Michigan school of law, in her short but prominently published book, Only Words (Harvard University Press, 1983). In it the good professor argued that words do not deserve the legal protection afforded them by the Constitution since insults and put downs, including jokes, can injure people good and hard. And such injuries should not be protected. The victims would have to pay too high a price for the fact that the law treats such injuries as ‘only words’...

Obama keeps some Bush secrets

Associated Press

04/19/09

Despite a pledge to open government, the Obama administration has endorsed a Bush-era decision to keep secret key details of an FBI computer database that allows agents and analysts to search a billion documents with a wealth of personal information about Americans and foreigners. President Barack Obama’s Justice Department quietly told a federal court in Washington last week that it would not second-guess the previous administration’s decisions to withhold some information about the bureau’s Investigative Data Warehouse...

Biofuel from Corn Ethanol Is Not Renewable, Does Not Address Climate Change

Unique opportunity this week (by 24th) to setback food and ecosystem based biofuels. Please take action and forward now! And the other alerts to which you are forwarded still need sending too.

Dr. Glen Barry


ACTION ALERT

PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY!

Biofuel from Corn Ethanol Is Not Renewable, Does Not Address Climate Change

By Ecological Internet's Climate Ark project with Rainforest Rescue //www.climateark.org/ & //www.regenwald.org/international/englisch/ April 20, 2009

Let California Air Resources Board know all industrially produced biofuel crops from live biomass, edible or not, still require land, soil, water, fertilizer and other finite inputs. It is clear that industrial biofuels are not "renewable energy" given that these inputs are all in limited supply, and indirect land uses lead to destruction of soil and forest carbon sinks elsewhere.

BRIEF BACKGROUND: Regulators at the California Air Resources Board (CARB) are poised later this week to declare that biofuel from corn ethanol cannot help the state address climate change. In assessing the true environmental cost of corn ethanol, it was found this biofuel is worse than petroleum when total greenhouse gas emissions are considered. This is because as with all monocultures, corn ethanol for biofuels lead to numerous other indirect land use changes. Increased industrial agriculture results in rising land pressures and the loss of soil and forest carbon sinks elsewhere. Such a declaration disallowing corn ethanol biofuel from counting as emissions reductions would be a considerable blow to the corn-ethanol industry in the United States and would likely set a national precedent.

Ecological Internet and Rainforest Rescue are concerned with America's growing ethanol industry, and the precedent it sets for massive agricultural industrialization of the world's remaining rainforests and other natural wildlands. Please call upon the CARB to heed the overwhelming evidence that agrofuels worsen climate change through further deforestation and the destruction of other soils and ecosystems, drive food prices up, force more people worldwide into hunger, malnutrition and landlessness; and decimate biodiversity and ecosystems.

TAKE ACTION NOW: //www.climateark.org/shared/alerts/send.aspx?id=corn_ethanol2

Victory as phone mast is refused

By Paul Cassell

April 21, 2009

Protesters are celebrating after town planners threw out proposals for a 13-metre high phone mast near their homes in Tilehurst.

Telecommunications giant Vodafone was refused planning permission to put up the mast and base cabinets on the corner of Elmstone Drive and Lower Elmstone Drive on Thursday.

A 200-signature petition and 27 letters of objection were received by Reading Borough Council opposing the mast with 36 more previously sent to Vodafone as part of an initial consultation.

There is an immense irony in her faux horror that she was wiretapped without her knowledge, since the allegation against her is that then Attorney General Alberto Gonzales dropped the investigation of her over the deal she seems to have made with the Israeli agent, precisely in order to retain her as an advocate of warrantless wiretapping.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she was briefed ‘a few years ago’ by National Security Agency officials about their secret taping of U.S. Representative Jane Harman’s phone calls, though she said she didn’t know the contents of the conversations. At a meeting with reporters today in Washington, Pelosi also said she was prohibited from informing Harman of the government’s eavesdropping.

It is a victory that not only signals the continuation of the Lobby’s dominance in Washington, in spite of growing popular revulsion against lobbyists in general, but also gives the Israelis a blank check to spy on their American patrons to their hearts’ content...
