Pelosi Pushes Democrats to Vote for War Money

Adam Graham-Silverman, Congressional Quarterly: "House leaders appear ready to push ahead with a floor vote on the next war funding bill as early as Tuesday. It's not yet clear that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has persuaded enough fellow Democrats to support it. Democrats are the ones who'll have to supply the votes because Republicans say they are going to stay united and vote against it. 'Nancy's working it,' said Defense Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman John P. Murtha , D-Pa. 'It's going to be a very close vote.'"

Obama Looses the Manhunters: Charisma and the Imperial Presidency

Enough With the Obamathon

Bill Maher, The Los Angeles Times: "In conclusion, Bush was a jerk, but he never cared about being seen having a burger with Dick Cheney. He picked up the phone in the White House and said, 'I'm the president, bring me a burger.' And they'd say, 'Sir, this is NORAD. Would you please stop ordering burgers with the red phone?' I'm glad that Obama is president, but the 'Audacity of Hope' part is over. Right now, I'm hoping for a little more audacity."

Obama Looses the Manhunters: Charisma and the Imperial Presidency

Tom Engelhardt, TomDispatch.com: "Let's face it, even Bo is photogenic, charismatic. He's a camera hound. And as for Barack, Michelle, Sasha, and Malia -- keep in mind that we're now in a first name culture -- they all glow on screen. Before a camera they can do no wrong. And the president himself, well, if you didn't watch his speech in Cairo, you should have. The guy's impressive. Truly. He can speak to multiple audiences -- Arabs, Jews, Muslims, Christians, as well as a staggering range of Americans -- and somehow just about everyone comes away hearing something they like, feeling he's somehow on their side."

Arbeitnehmerdatenschutz: Handeln statt Träumen

15. Juni 2009

Zur illegalen Sammlung von Mitarbeiterdaten bei der Post erklärt das Mitglied des Parteivorstandes Jan Korte:

Zu Beginn dieser Legislaturperiode waren sich alle Fraktionen im Bundestag einig: In einer gemeinsamen Beschlussempfehlung über alle Fraktionen hinweg wurde ein Arbeitnehmerdatenschutzgesetz als dringend notwendig erachtet. Dies geschah noch vor Bekanntwerden der Bespitzelungsaktionen u.a. bei der Deutschen Bahn und der Telekom. Nun ist ein weiterer börsennotierter Staatsbetrieb hinzugekommen: In Filialen der Post wurden Krankenakten geführt, aus denen Handlungsempfehlungen für die Beschäftigten herausgearbeitet werden sollten. Wer aus gesundheitlichen Gründen öfter fehle, solle doch dem Betrieb nicht weiter zur Last fallen und sich frühverrenten lassen, so eine der offensichtlich angedachten Optionen. Auch wenn das Verhalten – diesmal der Post – unter geltendem Recht illegal ist, ist es ein Beispiel für den aktuellen Trend bei Unternehmen: Der ideale Mitarbeiter ist gläsern und bis in die Privatsphäre hinein kontrollierbar. Offensichtlich sind eklatante Verstöße gegen Arbeitnehmerrechte nicht mehr die Ausnahme sondern System. Angesichts der regelmäßigen Überwachungsskandale muss nicht nur ein klares Zeichen gegen Datenmissbrauch und für Arbeitnehmerrechte gesetzt werden, der Gesetzgeber ist in der Pflicht, der Beschneidung von Arbeitnehmerrechten Einhalt zu gebieten. Dabei helfen keine Lippenbekenntnisse á la Schäuble und Scholz oder das SPD-Regierungsprogramm, das praktisch die Vertagung des Problems in eine vermeintliche zukünftige Regierungszeit manifestiert. Ein Arbeitnehmerdatenschutzgesetz muss noch in dieser Legislaturperiode auf den Weg gebracht werden, damit nicht auch in Zukunft gilt, dass Datenschutz, Menschenwürde und Grundrechte am Werkstor oder an den Personaleingängen enden.

Kinderarbeit nimmt infolge der globalen Krise zu

„Über 200 Millionen Kinder zwischen 5 und 17 Jahren besuchen keine Schule und gehen stattdessen arbeiten. Vor einer weiteren Zunahme der Kinderarbeit warnt der Internationale Gewerkschaftsbund IGB am heutigen Welttag gegen Kinderarbeit…“ DGB-Meldung //www.dgb.de/2009/06/12_kinderarbeit/


Kinderarbeit: Hammerchild

Der IGB hat ein neues Video veröffentlicht, um Druck auf die Regierungen auszuüben, damit sie konkreter gegen die Ausbeutung von Kindern vorgehen, indem sie zum einen finanzielle Mittel für eine gute Schulbildung bereitstellen und zum anderen die arbeitsrechtlichen Bestimmungen in Kraft setzen. //www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNWWGwg0KSo


Kinderarbeit – Kinderrechte

Das Deutsche NRO-Forum Kinderarbeit hat am 8. Juni 2009 die Broschüre "Kinderarbeit - Kinderrechte. Beiträge zur Qualifizierung des Umgangs mit Kinderarbeit in kinderrechtlicher Perspektive" veröffentlicht. In dieser Broschüre geht es um eine Qualifizierung der Auseinandersetzung mit Kinderarbeit, die nicht selten von kurzschlüssigen Vereinfachungen geprägt ist. Deshalb entfaltet die Broschüre die Einsicht, dass es "die" Kinderarbeit nicht gibt. Sie beleuchtet soziale und wirtschaftliche Zusammenhänge. Und sie skizziert neue Wege zur Verwirklichung der Rechte des Kindes. Die Broschüre bei NRO (pdf) //www.pronats.de/fileadmin/pronats/documents/heidel_kinderarbeit_2009.pdf

Don’t buy what the government is selling

Freedom Politics
by Tom Lucente

06/12/09

For some reason, most Americans are simply confused when it comes to government. I suspect that most people, at some time in their lives, have railed against the government for one reason or another. We have grown accustomed to government scandal, year after year. For example, the list of current or former federal representatives recently or currently under investigation by law enforcement or congressional ethics committees is long indeed...

Why the meltdown should have surprised no one

Ludwig von Mises Institute
by Peter Schiff

06/12/09

We had a stock-market bubble because the Federal Reserve was too easy; they were too loose in the 1990s. Interest rates were too low, we created too much money, and that fed the investments in the stock market. And we had a lot of malinvestments. Companies were created that never should have existed. They were created not because they could generate a profit, but because they could go public, because investors wanted these stocks. It didn’t matter that they couldn’t make money...

A disconnect on torture

Campaign For Liberty
by Philip Giraldi

06/13/09

Torture has been universally condemned and banned by both Geneva and United Nations Conventions for good reasons. It is also illegal under US law. It is widely recognized that torture is a line that should not be crossed, that it starts out with sleep deprivation and winds up with torn out fingernails and even death. On a practical level, it only is really good at producing confessions, many of which turn out to be false. It debases and turns sadistic those who carry it out and those who order it. It is a black mark on the government that condones it and it opens the door for other countries to engage in the same or similar practices...

CIA head says Cheney almost wishing US be attacked

ABC News

06/14/09

CIA Director Leon Panetta says former Vice President Dick Cheney’s criticism of the Obama administration’s approach to terrorism almost suggests ‘he’s wishing that this country would be attacked again, in order to make his point.’ Panetta told The New Yorker for an article in its June 22 issue that Cheney ’smells some blood in the water’ on the issue of national security...

EFF challenges government’s “back door wiretap”

Electronic Frontier Foundation

06/11/09

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and other civil liberties groups filed an amicus brief in Warshak v. United States urging the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Wednesday to hold that the government’s seizure of email without a warrant violated the Fourth Amendment and federal privacy statutes, as well as the Justice Department’s own surveillance manual. ‘During its criminal investigation, the Department of Justice illegally ordered defendant Stephen Warshak’s email provider to prospectively ‘preserve’ copies of his future emails, which the government later obtained using a subpoena and a non-probable cause court order’...

Blackwater Still Working in Iraq for the International Republican Institute, According to New Lawsuit

Jeremy Scahill, Rebel Reports: "It seems as though every week there is a new lawsuit filed against Blackwater for the killing of civilians in Iraq. While the Justice Department has failed to prosecute most of these cases (the September 2007 Nisour Square massacre being an exception), attorney Susan Burke has dedicated a substantial part of her practice to holding the company responsible for its crimes. She works in cooperation with the Center for Constitutional Rights ... beyond the specifics of her lawsuits, Burke is also alleging Blackwater/Xe remains firmly entrenched in Iraq, using affiliate companies like Greystone."

Agent Orange and Vietnam's Forgotten Victims

Geoffrey Cain, GlobalPost: "At 46, each year of misery seems to have etched new wrinkles around Tran Thanh Dung's angry gaze. When he was child in the early 1970s, Tran says he witnessed U.S. soldiers shoot his parents - both of whom were communist Viet Cong soldiers during the Vietnam War. Bent on revenge, he joined the guerrilla group within hours."

Parents will get public hearings before cell tower deals

By ADAM EMERSON | The Tampa Tribune

Published: June 12, 2009

Hillsborough County will now require a public hearing before cell phone towers go up near schools.

TAMPA - Families demanding to be heard before schools arrange to place cell towers on their campuses now will have a voice.

Hillsborough County commissioners Thursday night changed their land-use codes to force tighter restrictions on schools pursuing cell tower leases. Now a public hearing is required before the towers can go up.
