Stopping Pakistan Drone Strikes

Robert Naiman, Truthout: "Until this week, it seemed like the conventional wisdom in Washington was that stopping US drone strikes in Pakistan was outside the bounds of respectable discussion. That just changed. Or it should have."

40 "militants" killed in US drone attacks

Soon after the attack, other militants staying at the building arrived and started rescue work. "They were recovering bodies of the slain militants when the drone fired two more missiles, almost 12 minutes after the first attack. It was terrible as almost all the Taliban involved in rescue work were targeted," stated a local militant commander based in Mirali.

Corruption Is Dangerous to Your Health

Robert Borosage, The Campaign For America's Future: "This isn't about America being a 'center-right country,' the myth that pundits still peddle about the American people. This is about Congress being bought and sold, pure and simple. Each night, Washington slurps on political fund-raisers. Each day, the deals get cut; the favors get done. Now with Republicans lining up lemming-like to obstruct anything Obama, Congress can be bought on the cheap. The lobbies have only to enlist (suborn, bribe, seduce, finance) a few of what the press insists on describing as 'moderate Democrats' in the Senate to stop any reform they don't like."

Residents pledge to fight pub phone mast plans

Published Date: 07 May 2009

By Sam Chadderton

Outraged residents say they will fight plans for a mobile phone mast being put up yards from their homes.

People living on Leyland Lane were shocked when letters came through their doors informing them that a Vodafone telephone mast was to be installed in front of the Broadfield Arms pub.

Now they've joined with the pub in opposing the scheme.

The pub's manager Sandra Chester said: "We have just found out about these plans and feel it is going to be an eyesore. From the three rooms upstairs this mast will be the only thing I can see.

Europäische Allianz für Lobby-Transparenz und ethische Regeln (ALTER-EU)

LobbyControl-Newsletter Extra vom 7.5.2009

Vorletzte Woche vereinbarten Europaparlament und EU-Kommission ein gemeinsames, aber nur freiwilliges Lobbyregister. Das reicht nicht aus! Die Europawahl in vier Wochen bietet die Gelegenheit, das Thema noch mal aufzugreifen und auf Lobby-Transparenz zu drängen.

Mit der europäischen Allianz für Lobby-Transparenz und ethische Regeln
(ALTER-EU) haben wir jetzt eine Kampagne gestartet: KandidatInnen für das Europäische Parlament (EP) sollen sich verpflichten, dass sie sich nach der Wahl für ein verpflichtendes Lobbyistenregister einsetzen, für Regeln gegen mögliche Interessenkonflikte von EU-Abgeordneten und für eine transparente und ausgewogene Besetzung der EU-Expertengruppen. Sie können Ihre Kandidatinnen und Kandidaten vor Ort über die Kampagnen-Webseite um ihre Unterschrift bitten!

Die Aktion ist Teil der gemeinsamen Kampagne „Nehmen Sie Ihre EU-Kandidaten in die Pflicht!“ von ALTER-EU, der European Coalition for Corporate Justice (ECCJ), dem Seattle to Brussels Netzwerk (S2B) und Attac Europa. Jedes der vier Netzwerk stellt dabei Forderungen aus seinen Themenfeldern. Neben Lobby-Transparenz geht es um Unternehmensverantwortung, die EU-Handelspolitik und die Regulierung der Finanzmärkte.

Beteiligen Sie sich online unter //www.electioncampaign.eu/?clang=4

Auf der rechten Seite können Sie die KandidatInnen nach Land, Bundesland und Partei sortieren und nachschlagen, welche Abgeordneten sich schon zu welchen Themen verpflichtet haben. Wählen Sie Ihre Kandidaten oder Kandidatinnen aus und schreiben Sie ihnen eine E-Mail! Über die Betreffzeile in dem Aktionsformular können Sie entscheiden, ob Sie nur nach deren Position zu Lobby-Transparenz fragen wollen oder alle anderen Politikfelder mit abfragen wollen. Der Text der E-Mail ändert sich entsprechend - Sie können zudem den Text individuell abändern.

Das Europaparlament muss endlich mehr für Lobby-Transparenz tun. Letztes Jahr hatte es eine gute Resolution dazu verabschiedet, aber sich dieses Jahr auf einen unzureichenden Kompromiss mit der EU-Kommission eingelassen. Demnach soll es ein gemeinsames, aber nur freiwilliges Lobbyregister geben. Die genauen Konditionen sollen bald ausgehandelt werden, wenn das neue Europaparlament gewählt ist. Deshalb ist es wichtig, breite Unterstützung für Lobby-Transparenz unter den Europaabgeordneten zu organisieren.

Schreiben Sie jetzt an ihre/n Abgeordnete/n //www.electioncampaign.eu/?clang=4

Unterstützen Sie unseren Einsatz für ein Lobbyregister in Brüssel!

Banks That Received Federal Cash Enabled Subprime Lenders, Report Finds

Dina ElBoghdady, The Washington Post: "Many of the banks receiving billions of dollars in federal aid owned or bankrolled subprime lenders that directly contributed to the unraveling of the global economy, according to a new report. While many of these banks have portrayed themselves as unwitting victims of the subprime mortgage meltdown, they also enabled that kind of lending because it was lucrative, according to the nonprofit Center for Public Integrity."

A Cheney cover-up?

Mother Jones
by Nick Baumann and David Corn

05/06/09

Who in the George W. Bush White House tried to shred a memo challenging the use of torture? On April 21, Philip Zelikow, who was counselor to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during the Bush administration, revealed on Foreign Policy’s ‘Shadow Government’ blog that he wrote a memo in 2005 disputing the conclusions of Bush Justice Department lawyers that torture was legal. The existence of such a memo was a surprise. But Zelikow also disclosed that the ‘White House attempted to collect and destroy all copies of my memo.’ This story is not over. Zelikow tells Mother Jones that he doesn’t know for sure who in the White House ordered the suppression of his memo, but he says that his ’supposition at the time’ was that the office of Vice President Dick Cheney was behind the cover-up...

TARP as Shakespearean tragedy

QandO
by Michael Wade

05/06/09

Since last October when Hank Paulsen forced nine of the largest banks to take an initial injection of $125 billion in TARP funds (among other bullying), the federal government has committed about $12.2 trillion dollars to bailouts and spent about $2.5 trillion on such efforts (er, among other, other bullying). Aside from an increasing assertion of control over the financial and automotive sectors of our economy (among other, other, other bullying), there is very little to show for all this money. Which leaves the rather stark impression that government control was the goal all along — i.e. the method within the madness...

The rich and powerful can avoid risk

The American Prospect
by Robert A. Johnson

05/06/09

Recent discussions of the malfunction of Wall Street have centered on the role of statistical models that failed to accurately account for all possible outcomes. These less likely results, known as ‘tail risks,’ were underestimated by the models. Now the ‘quants’ on Wall Street and academia have a new research agenda, which is to figure out how to fix those models. … The challenges related to the distribution and management of risk are much more formidable than a technical fix because they are not technical problems. Managing and balancing risk in the future is an organic human problem, a political problem, and a problem of power. The question is how to remedy the fact that some players have the power to shift risks and to use the political process for insurance, while others do not...

Malaysian Oil Palm Threatens Brazilian Amazon

ACTION ALERT

PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY!

By Rainforest Rescue with Ecological Internet //www.regenwald.org/international/englisch/ & //www.climateark.org/ May 6, 2009

Malaysia's government owned and subsidized oil palm cooking oil and biofuel industry -- the scourge of Asia and the world's rainforests -- is continuing to expand, this time into the heart of the Brazilian Amazon

BRIEF BACKGROUND: Malaysia‘s Federal Land Development Authority (FELDA) will soon break ground on a joint venture with a Brazilian firm to establish 30,000-100,000 hectares (ha; 75,000 – 250,000 acres) of oil palm plantations in the heart of Brazil's Amazon rainforest. Similar oil palm development continues to devastate Asia-Pacific's rainforests, and increasingly the world, with some thirty square miles of carbon and biodiversity rich habitat being cleared a day to provide cooking oil and transport biodiesel. Oil palm agrofuel is heralded as a climate change mitigation measure, yet the initial rainforest clearance leads to much more carbon release than its production and use avoids.

Large scale biofuel production runs counter to urgently addressing climate change and threatens to cause more deforestation, hunger, human rights abuses, and degradation of soil and water. Global ecological sustainability and local well-being depend critically upon ending all industrial development in the world's remaining old forests -- including plantations, logging, mining and dams. The amount of primary and old growth forests that have been lost has already overshot the carrying capacity of Earth. Globally there are not enough old forests to maintain climatic and hydrological cycles, meet local forest dwellers' needs, and to maintain ecosystems and the biosphere in total. Local peoples must be assisted to fully protect, restore and benefit from intact, standing forests.

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

Can Christians Serve In The New World Order Army?

by Pastor Chuck Baldwin

Using U.S. troops as international "peacekeepers" only serves the interests of the international New World Order; it has nothing to do with protecting the lives and property of the American people. In fact, an argument could be made that every war the United States has fought since World War II has been unconstitutionally waged: for the purpose of fulfilling the globalistic aspirations of world leaders and not for the defense of the United States........

Fearing Health Impacts, Park Slope And Bay Ridge Lead Fight

By Harold Egeln
Brooklyn Daily Eagle

BAY RIDGE – Cell phone tower opponents here cheered Community Board 10 when the board joined allies in Queens and Park Slope, as the City Council moves to make it tougher for cell phone companies to place towers in neighborhoods, fearing possible adverse health effects.

At a recent Board 10 meeting, the board voted to back a call for stronger federal action to curb cellular antennae and support stronger rules on telecommunication towers placements. Giving the board’s efforts a boost were a recent achievement of tower opponents in Park Slope and new legislation at City Hall.
